Michael Byrne was born in New Orleans, LA, and raised in Memphis, TN, and Jackson, MS. Always interested in mechanics and design, Michael studied biomedical engineering at Mississippi State University. His medical career began with medical school at University of Mississippi, followed by Internal Medicine residency in Memphis, TN, and culminated in Nephrology fellowship in South Carolina. He is in private practice as a nephrologist.
One of Michael's hobbies is yoga. Through his yoga practice, he has become in tune with healing from a holistic perspective. In his concentration on the mind-body-spirit connection, he has also come to understand the role of the senses in healing. While still seeing a role for traditional medication in healing, Michael knows that there is a transcendent aspect of healing that is closely related to attitude and one's own sense of health and well being.
Dr. Cleangreen's Handy Essentials is a natural integration of Michael's biomedical background with his holistic approach to medicine. Formulating the product has tapped into his clinical knowledge base and his desire to deliver healthy and effective medical care -- with a little aromatherapy thrown in, too!
