Lyme Disease

According to Tick Talk Ireland, Lyme Disease is the fastest growing vector-borne infection (spreading at a rate of 30% every year). Yet in Ireland  it continues to be grossly dismissed and misdiagnosed by the medical community.  Lyme Disease is often called, ‘The Great Imitator’. It can cause the symptoms of up to 200 other illnesses. Many people have been misdiagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Anxiety, Colitis and many more. Early detection and treatment is key to recovery.  If left undiagnosed Lyme Disease can affect every organ in the body.
Lately, there has been a host of celebrities revealing their battle with Lyme Disease in an effort to raise awareness. The American singer Kris Kristoffen for years was misdiagnosed with Alzheimer’s when it fact it was Lyme Disease. After appropriate treatment Kris is back out touring again. The  former English rugby player Matt Dawson experience severe heart problems due to Lyme Disease. Kelly Osbourne had been previously told she had epilepsy when in fact Lyme Disease was the root case.
Inadequate testing  in many countries has contributed to people spending years of ill-health. People have had  to seek private testing from Armin Labs in Germany and Igenex in America before getting a diagnosis from a Lyme literate doctor. At this stage Lyme Disease has reached chronic stage. Unfortunately, at this late stage for many antibiotic treatment is not effective in eliminating this pathogen.

Dr Jack Lambert Head of Infectious Diseases in Ireland speaking about Lyme Disease and the situation in Ireland on  RTE Radio 1 in September 2018.


Here at Inishowen Biomagnetics Emma Doherty  specialises and treats  Lyme Disease and Co-infections. Having fought this terrifying illness herself  for 11  years Emma and her family has walked this lonely road. Largely through using Biomagnetic Pair Therapy Emma has made an amazing full recovery. She is committed and dedicated to helping others and also raising awareness. She has been on the radio on a couple of occasions telling her story in order to help others.

An extract from the brilliant Irish made documentary ‘Living with Lyme Disease’.

Emma trained originally as a Biomagnetic  Pair Therapist to solely treat her children, husband and family.  Through word of mouth alone people began to hear the amazing testimonials from people who experienced a treatment with Emma.  Her passion, empathy and enthusiasm is infectious. Emma is committed to helping clients to regain their health. Her dedication and genuine concern for all her clients means that a “can do effort”  attitude is always apparent.  From the first session and beyond  until recovery, Emma is present and engaged leaving no stone unturned in her effort to gain the best results for each of her clients.

American Documentary, ‘Under Our Skin’ 

Lyme Disease is a multi-systemic infection caused by the bacteria Borrelia Burgdorferi. However, this bacteria is not the only pathogenic  factor responsible for the vast array of symptoms experienced by people with Lyme Disease.

Co-infections such as Ehrichiosis, Bartonella, Babesia , Epstein Barr Virus and Rickettsia can  often be present also. It’s therefore the combination of this pathogenic load that makes the treatment of Lyme Disease more complex than any other illnesses that are presented.
