Lifestyle/Integrative Medicine

Treating the root causes of illness and reversing chronic conditions.

Lifestyle Medicine heavily emphasises evidence-based non-drug related treatments – nutrition, movement, mindfulness, sleep and socially related realms – as the cornerstone treatment/prevention for many diseases.

Generally, lifestyle medicine looks to treat the root cause of chronic disease, or illness, rather than the symptoms in which medication treats typically.

Common Concerns

Well+Being understands that no two people are the same, understanding the root cause of chronic conditions can change the way you think about your health.

Weight + Metabolism

Poor metabolic health isn’t always obvious—the symptoms are often silent.

Managing your weight can help prevent and treat a variety of chronic conditions including diabetes, heart attack, and stroke. We understand, however, that maintaining a healthy weight can be challenging at times. We are here to help support you throughout your journey by working together to develop a personal and sustainable plan that works for you.

Mental Wellbeing

Mental health isn’t just in your head.

Our Medical Doctors help you heal the mind-body connection by navigating stress and anxiety, and the physical symptoms they cause, so you can recover your mental wellbeing.

Heart Health

Why your heart health matters.

Your heart plays a critical role in your overall health. Get a personalised, doctor-led plan to manage symptoms like high blood pressure, and avoid conditions like diabetes and stroke in the future.

Autoimmune + Inflammation

Autoimmune disease is complicated.

And on average, it takes 4.5 years to diagnose. We can identify and treat the condition behind your symptoms—usually within the first few visits.

Hormonal Balance

A natural hormone balance.

Hormones are the messengers that tell your tissues and organs what to do. A slight change can cause fatigue, weight change, acne, and more and our Doctors will work with you to find the right balance.

Gut Health

Trust your gut again.

We heal SIBO, IBS, acid reflux, and other digestive conditions with personalized plans designed to address the root cause of your uncomfortable symptoms.


Healing starts with understanding.

It’s exhausting finding your own way between different drugs and doctors who don’t always listen, asking yourself, “Why am I always sick?” At Well + Being, we locate the root cause of your unexplained illnesses and help you finally feel better.

We take the time to clearly understand your personal goals and your details health history.

We run detailed advanced diagnostic testing to help you get in-depth information about your health and body.

Together we develop a personalised plan to target the root causes of your illness rather than just the symptoms. 

Our team of doctors, nurses and certified health coaches provide ongoing support through your wellbeing journey.

What training have Well + Being Doctors had?

All our medical practitioners graduated with a University Degree in MBCHB and are registered with the New Zealand Medical Council. They have gained vast experience in General Practices and have upskilled in Lifestyle Medicine, Functional Medicine and Integrative Medicine.

Our medical practitioners  offers a different service from conventional General Practice. They approach their work from a more natural health perspective (termed complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) by the medical council) although they may include conventional medical options when they are appropriate.

They will discuss with you, appropriate to their scope of practice, options available for you to consider with regards to investigations and treatments. Keeping in mind the amount of information you are interested in, the medical practitioner will discuss with you conventional options and other (CAM) options. They will act honestly and in good faith and in a manner that is consistent with their professional, legal and ethical obligations.

What do Well + Being health coaches do / what training have they had?

All our health coaches have been trained and certified by the New Zealand-founded organisation Prekure. In addition, all our health coaches hold respected credentials such as degrees in nursing, pharmacy, physical education and biology from accredited institutions and universities.

All our health coaches have studied the science of behaviour change in their degree programs or additional certifications. This allows them to best support members in making long-term lifestyle changes to benefit their health and wellness goals.

Whats the difference between a health coach and a doctor?

Unlike our doctors, our health coaches are not there to give you detailed medical advice. instead, our health coaches are there to support and motivate you to make the necessary lifestyle changes according to your wellness plan and optimise your overall health and wellbeing.

Our health coaches work closely alongside our doctors to keep you on track and supported throughout your wellness journey.

Health coaches will not order lab testing or prescribe medication. They may however recommend you see one our doctors for a more detailed analysis if needed.

What is the Well + Beings approach to prescription medication?

Prescription drugs are an essential tool of modern medicine and may be prescribed by our doctors. All of our doctors have been trained in conventional medical schools or nursing schools and are licensed to prescribe pharmaceutical medication.

In addition to prescriptions, we also offer medication reviews by our in-house pharmacist.

Our goal however is to only prescribe the medicine needed for treating the root cause of illness. In addition, for some people, conventional therapies or prescriptions may not work or be necessary. Many medicines today are designed to manage symptoms rather than treat the root cause of illness. In addition, some come with unwanted side effects.

For example, for certain conditions such as type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes, you may not need to take metformin or insulin. You may simply need a change in diet and lifestyle. Instead of relying solely on prescription medication, our wellness team will work with you to help reverse diabetes and get you off medication.

What types of advanced testing does Well + Being offer?

Our blood tests offer in advanced analysis of:

– essential nutrients

– thyroid function

– cardiovascular health and metabolic functioning

– inflammatory markers, hormones, and more.

In addition we offer more advanced testing which can dive deeper in particular health concern. These include:
– DNA and genetic testing and evaluation
– gut microbiome and digestive function,
– stress and reproductive hormone testing,
– food sensitivity,
– energy and metabolism

Do I keep seeing my regular GP?

Many people seek out complementary treatments such as lifestyle medicine, and we encourage you to keep your regular GP fully informed.

Please let us know whether you would like us to communicate with your regular GP. We would prefer to keep them informed if possible

Can Well + Being be my primary health care provider?

While all our doctors practice internal and family medicine, we recommend that your keep seeing your GP for urgent, same-day visits and vaccinations, which we don’t provide at Well + Being.

Does Well + Being provide urgent or acute care?

Well + Being provides long-term ongoing health support however, we are not an urgent care provider and are not available for same-day emergency appointments. If you have a medical emergency, we recommend that you visit your GP, an urgent care centre or a hospital.

Will my appointment be covered by ACC?

As this is not a GP clinic, government subsidies such as ACC or Community Services Card are not applicable. You may however be able to claim insurance via your private provider. Please reach out to your provider to check.

What happens at the first appointment?

Before your first appointment, we will send you a detailed confidential questionnaire to gain a better understanding of your current situation.

The first session is always 60 minutes long, to allow enough time for us to really get to know your, your goals and your health history.

During your first session, the doctor will go through this with you, listen to your concerns, develop a personalised road map and order any new lab tests needed.

What happens at follow up appointments?

Follow up appointments are used to review and if necessary modify the treatment according to the plan that has been given to you.

Often treatment plans will evolve depending over time. Follow-up appointments are usually for 60 or 30 minutes.

Someone else wants to come with me, are they allowed to?

Yes, it’s always a good idea to bring a partner or a friend along if you are unsure or want some additional support.
