A GP who relied on ‘muscle testing’ to incorrectly diagnose patients with Lyme disease and Q fever over a 10-year period has been banned from practising until 2028.

Melbourne-based Dr Geoffrey Kemp, who gave an undertaking not to practise back in 2020, recommended multiple antibiotics, antimalarials, homeopathic remedies and ‘colour therapy’ to his patients.
