About Elaine Griffin


Elaine Griffin is a CNM qualified Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist and a Goiz certified Biomagnetic Pair Therapist and runs Polaris Clinic in Galway City and Westport, Co. Mayo. She set up Polaris Clinic in 2018 after winning her own very long and challenging battle with chronic health conditions, and consequently gave up a very successful career as an artist and lecturer in NCAD, to help others struggling in the same ways. Elaine is an avid wild food forager and gardener, producing much organic and nutritious fruits, vegetables and herbs from her own garden in Westport, Co. Mayo.

Over 25 Years of Chronic Health Issues

Elaine suffered with chronic health issues for over 25 years, which began after a severe bout of Epstein Barr Virus at age 18, resulting in multiple hospitalisations and continued right up until age 44. During that time she had received many diagnosis to include ME, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Pallindromic Rheumatism to name a few. In 2013 Elaine was diagnosed with Lyme Disease and tick borne co-infections by a specialist tick borne diseases lab in Germany. At that time she set up Elaine Fights Lyme, a patient advocacy platform, to help raise awareness of Lyme Disease and tick borne diseases.

Health Recovery

Her journey to recovering her health brought her around the globe, to Australia, India, Germany and the USA, where she underwent over 2.5 years of intravenous antibiotic treatment under a specialist chronic health clinic. Working with many experts and modalities in the fields of chronic illness, both conventional and holistic, has given Elaine an impressive and expansive understanding of treatment options and approaches.

In 2016 she discovered Biomagnetic Pair Therapy and began to recover her health and well-being. By 2018 she was employing Naturopathic Nutrition to continue her recovery trajectory and now enjoys a full life, free of pain and fatigue. In 2018, after qualifying as a Goiz Certified Biomagnetic Pair Therapist she opened Polaris Clinic to help others on their journey to recovering from chronic illness. In 2022 she qualified, with distinction, from the College of Naturopathic Medicine, CNM as a Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist.
