"I went to see Dr Bourne as I've been suffering from severe eczema for as long as I can remember. He identified the causes of my eczema - mercury amalgam dental fillings in particular. After a month of naturopathic treatment and replacement of two mercury fillings, my eczema went and I felt so much better. He explained everything during the consultation and came across as very experienced and knowledgeable. He's also an approachable and caring person and I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to really look after their health."

Vegatesting (see article 8 opposite)

This is a bio-electronic approach to integrative (functional, holistic) medicine (see article 2 opposite). Integrative medicine is the modern approach to naturopathic medicine (naturopathy).

Vegatesting is painless and does not involve needles or electric shocks.

Internet criticism of vegatesting 

An investigative journalist has reported inconsistent vegatest food allergy testing results by a few health food shop workers. 

Vegatest treatment (see the vegatest health screening box opposite)

Treatment is naturopathic and selected from ranges of homeopathic, nutritional and herbal preparations. Food intolerance testing is included.

At this clinic, towards the end of a consultation, Dr Bourne's wife, Valerie, who is an experienced clinical kinesiologist, independently checks the vegatest findings with muscle testing. If there is a discrepancy, vegatesting is repeated.

Some causes of health deterioration

Adrenal gland exhaustion (chronic stress), allergies, anxiety and depression, dental  mercury poisoning (1), dysbiosis and leaky gut syndrome (inflammatory intestinal microflora), chronic infection  (viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites), food intolerance, earth radiation/geopathic stress, electromagnetic radiation, toxicity (domestic, urban, industrial and agricultural), immune system weakness, nutritional deficiencies. 

(1) Dental mercury poisoning is a relatively common cause of health deterioration (article 7). Post mortem research indicates that mercury amalgam ('silver') dental fillings cause mercury to be deposited in the body, particularly in the brain and kidneys, so that replacing the mercury fillings does not remove these pre-existing mercury deposits and prevent ongoing mercury associated health deterioration. In view of this, people who have already had their mercury amalgam fillings replaced benefit from treatment for chronic mercury poisoning.

Mercury molecules deposited in the brain are micro-aerials that render  people particularly susceptible to the effects of  harmful  electromagnetic radiation (article 4).

Some conditions treated at this clinic 

Alopecia, allergy, anxiety/depression, autism, autoimmune conditions, Crohn's disease, chronic dermatitis, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic infection (including old glandular fever, Lyme Disease, candida and chlamydia), coeliac disease, eczema, dermatitis, endometriosis, food intolerance, gastric hyperacidity, high blood pressure, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome, metabolic syndrome (1), psoriasis, ulcerative colitis.​ 

(1) Metabolic syndrome (article 5 opposite) is caused by chemical poisoning, particularly from dental mercury, cadmium in motor exhaust fumes and aluminium in cooking utensils. This syndrome is associated with paradoxically high insulin and low blood glucose levels and predisposes to diabetes, thyroid gland disorders and polycystic ovaries.


A consultation averages two hours. Follow-up consultations are about every four weeks. The clinic is closed at weekends.

Before you come

  • Please drink an extra glass or two of water as vegatesting is less efficient if you are dehydrated.

  • Ladies, if possible, please do not wear tights as vegatesting entails access to the left foot.

  • Testing is done (painlessly) on a the side of a toe of the left foot, so please come with clean feet.

  • If you are already taking supplements and would like to have them checked, please do not take them on the day you come and bring samples with you.

During vegatesting

Please do not wear a watch or carry a mobile phone as batteries have electric fields that might interfere with the electronic testing. 

The problem with conventional medicine (Article 3) 

Pharmaceutical drugs with side effects are prescribed to suppress symptoms without addressing the underlying causes of the disease process. For example, high blood pressure is part of a physiological coping response to stress. If blood pressure is lowered artificially without stress reduction, the patient becomes tired, irritable and depressed. 

With integrative medicine, stress and associated high blood pressure are reduced by measures such as detoxification, treating dental mercury poisoning, excluding poorly tolerated foods, Bach flower therapy for anxiety and lifestyle modification. This approach lowers high blood pressure without side effects.

Conventional medicine also favours polypharmacy. For example, someone who has become tired, depressed and irritable from conventional 'treatment' for high blood pressure, may also be prescribed antidepressant drugs with more toxic side effects.


If you come by train to Finchley Central Station (Northern Line)

The clinic is located about half a mile from the station (ten to fifteen minutes walk). Dr Bourne can meet patients by car just outside the station exit by prearrangement (see below). 

Please phone Dr Bourne (07717833702) from East Finchley Station (the overground station before Finchley Central) to let him know that you will be arriving shortly. Exit the train at Finchley Central Station. At the top of the steps (a lift is also available) turn right  towards the Regents Park Road exit and wait by the station exit where there are nearby shops. (Outside the other 'Ballards Lane' exit, there is a car park and no shops). Dr Bourne will meet you in a grey Smart car or in a grey Skoda SUV.  

If you come by car

There are no parking restrictions in Cyprus Avenue. If you cannot find convenient parking, you are welcome to park across the house driveway (10 Cyprus Avenue, Church End, Finchley, N3 1ST).

If you come by bus (13 or 460) via Golders Green

Get off at the East End Road stop in Regents Park Road, walk up Cyprus Road, turn right into Hendon Lane, cross the road and enter Cyprus Avenue. The clinic (10 Cyprus Avenue) is a private house a few houses along on the right.

More testimonials

A man with prostatitis
 “I first consulted Dr Bourne in March 2018 after receiving a high PSA (prostate antibody) result and consequently being placed on the NHS rapid pathway for prostate cancer treatment that included prostate biopsy. I found Dr Bourne via his website after searching for an experienced medical doctor, who used an integrative approach. Following a thorough initial consultation that included vegatesting, he prescribed naturopathic remedies to support prostate function and to reduce inflammation and toxicity. He also referred me to a holistic dentist for removal of some high voltage mercury amalgam dental fillings, which he identified as a source of toxicity that was adversely affecting my prostate gland. Subsequent monthly follow up visits enabled me to make ongoing health improvements and to gain confidence in Dr Bourne's approach.
Over the past eight months, my PSA levels have consistently reduced over four separate measurements and are now normal.  My general health has also improved. In view of this, I have decided against having a prostate biopsy while my PSA levels are normal, although I will, however, continue to have my PSA levels checked.
Dr Bourne also cured my hay fever, which considerably improved my quality of life over the summer. 
I recommend him without reservation to anyone with chronic health problems and will continue to rely on his expertise into the future".

A schoolboy with Lyme Disease 

“Overall, I have been very happy with Dr Bourne and his advice on integrative medicine. He is very thorough, takes his time and explains everything very well. He is obviously very knowledgeable. I would be very happy to recommend his treatment and services to anyone in a similar situation.” Tina

Her son had been unwell with bizarre skin rashes on and off for five years. When he first came to this clinic, he was too ill to attend school. He had already been taken to five consultant hospital doctors, who prescribed courses of antibiotics that did not help him. With vegatesting, he was found to have Lyme disease, a tick transmitted antibiotic resistant bacterial infection. This case history is summarised in the 'Some articles' box opposite.

A case of Alopecia Areata

"The only Dr to have cured my son's alopecia!
I am delighted to have found Dr Bourne!! 
A year ago, my son developed alopecia (patchy scalp hair loss). The NHS and highly recommended expensive private doctors were all unsuccessful in causing my son's hair to regrow. My son was affected emotionally and I looked everywhere for someone who could help him.
Then I heard about Dr Bourne. He was more affordable and I loved the fact that he was knowledgeable in both conventional and alternative medicine. He patiently tested for possible causes. Initially the prescribed medications did not have the desired effect, and so he asked us to return for free to try to prescribe again. This time he was spot on and the patches shrunk rapidly. We watched as the rapidly developing patches that were by now very noticeable, covering almost half his head, disappeared. All with medications that have no side effects and are natural! I highly recommend Dr Bourne - he's pleasant, patient and more interested in curing his patients than making money"!

A case of Urticaria

"I first went to see doctor Bourne about 4 years ago after being described unnecessary drugs by doctors. I had a persistent cough and my local GP thought it could be acid reflux causing it. I was given various drugs to control the reflux. This made me very ill and effected my skin. I kept getting episodes of urticaria. I was recommended Doctor Bourne. On my first visit he took his time asking me lots of questions and after the consultation, he used his knowledge and skills assisted by a high-tech Vega testing machine. I found out that Doctor Bourne doesn't just look at symptoms but the root cause and to treat and prevent future episodes from happening. I was prescribed some homeopathic treatments including a detox treatment. I felt much better within a week and all symptoms cleared up within 3-4 weeks. I went back after about 6 weeks to get retested and found that everything had improved, I have recommended him to all my family and they have also had good results". Mick P

From a Dentist

"Dr Bourne has a very informed and holistic approach to medical diagnosis. Myself being a dentist, Stephen has referred patients to me for dental treatment, when he has identified a dental issue implicated in the patient's medical condition. The patients of his whom I have seen, have spoken highly of his approach and report they are very happy with the results of his therapy. On the strength of his reputation, I myself have consulted Dr Bourne for my own health needs, and was very impressed with his recommendations.”

A Boy Prone to Outbursts of Anger

"My 9-year-old son was easily angered and had very low self-esteem. He hated himself and the world. The vegatesting was painless and just involved touching a spot on the side of one of my son's toes with a blunt instrument. It sounds strange, but honestly it is amazing! Dr Bourne prescribed drops that contained homeopathy and Bach flowers. I've been adding them to my son's drinks for a few weeks and the difference in his personality is incredible. He is now so calm and doing really well at school. He goes to bed with no dramas and has become very sweet with his younger brother and happy to do his homework. Highly recommend a visit to Dr Bourne".

A Case of Irritable Bowel Syndrome

"I have had four consultations with Dr Bourne. He used vegatesting to assess my general health and to help me with a longstanding digestive problem. This diagnostic method confirmed the presence of an intestinal parasite and revealed two other problems, which might not otherwise have been found. The diagnostic process is carried out with great care and precision in a reassuring and healing environment. I feel better after treatment, which included dietary advice and herbal and homoeopathic remedies.
I am very pleasantly surprised at the effectiveness of this non-invasive holistic therapy. I shall return to Dr Bourne to monitor my progress or if any other problems occur".

1. If you have a runny nose with catarrh, you only have a common cold.

If you are coughing up yellowish phlegm, you are likely to have a bacterial chest infection rather than coronavirus.
2. Coronavirus pneumonia presents with a dry cough, no runny nose, no sputum and difficulty breathing. There may also be chest pain.
3. Coronavirus does not survive in hot sunny climates with temperatures of above about 26 degrees. 

4. Good hydration and hot drinks are beneficial. 
5. If someone with coronavirus sneezes, there is a risk of spreading the infection within a radius of about ten feet. 
6. If the virus lands on a metal surface, it will survive for at least twelve hours - so if you come into contact with a metal surface - wash your hands as soon as possible. 
7. The virus can survive on fabric for 6-12 hours. Normal hot washing with detergent will destroy it.
8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can survive on hands for 5-10 minutes. Hand washing also reduces the risk of transferring the virus from one's hands to one's eyes, nose and mouth. 

9. Support your immune system with vitamin D3 (the sunshine vitamin).

E.g. Vitamin D3, High Strength (5000 i.u.) 60 tablets,

from Nutri Advanced (0800 043 5777). Take one tablet daily.

Initially, there is a sore throat lasting 3-4 days. After 5-6 days, there is high fever with difficulty in breathing, chest pain and a dry cough with no phlegm. There may be other atypical signs and symptoms so that Covid19 can be  difficult to diagnose from symptoms. 



A recent article in the World Foundation for Natural Science concluded that although 5G radio transmissions are unlikely to be the direct cause of coronavirus, they are, nevertheless, an environmental pollutant and that environmental pollution predisposes to infectious diseases. See:


During March 2020, Switzerland became the first country to ban 5G radio transmissions because of health concerns. See:





These are small discs that prevent the harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation. The technology is supported by scientific research: for example, plants exposed to harmful electromagnetic radiation grow better when protected with smart energy dot technology.


Energy dots are available from

www.energydots.com  and  https://www.healthy-house.co.uk/

Dr Bourne wears a Biodot in a small wallet in his back trouser pocket and has a Smartdot stuck onto the back of his wrist watch. His wife, Valerie, has confirmed with muscle testing (kinesiology), that these reduce the harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation from a smartphone and from a computer router. 


Infections are less likely to affect people, who are slightly alkaline with a pH of above 7 (see below). An alkalising diet contains plenty of fruit and vegetables, organic meat (does not contain antibiotics) and organic fish. Sourdough bread and organic eggs are OK.  Processed foods that contain colourings and preservatives (particularly processed meat) and sugary foods should be kept to a minimum. Alkalising supplements can also be taken if necessary.


Alkalising supplements should be taken at least an hour before or after meals so as not to interfere with digestion. ​

Initially, one teaspoonful of baking powder (sodium bicarbonate) in about half a glass of water should be taken three times a day until a balanced alkalising preparation and pH test strips can be obtained.

A balanced alkalising preparation + pH test strips is available as Alkamax powder from Water for Health (01764 662111)


A first morning urine pH should be routinely tested with the pH test strips and the dose of alkalising salts adjusted to maintain a first morning urine pH of between 7 and 7.4 (slightly alkaline). ​ 


The spray can be used about four times a day to spray nano silver into the nose and throat. It is suggested that a litre of nano silver is bought at the same time as the spray to be used to top up the spray and as a standby for treatment of subsequent acute infections that have not responded to conventional antibiotics.  



Nano silver is a naturopathic antibiotic that looks and tastes like water. The recommended oral dose for acute infections is 15 ml (one tablespoonful) to be taken four times a day. The liquid should be held in the mouth for as long as possible before swallowing – ideally for about one minute.

Nano silver from a nano silver spray should also be sprayed into the nose and throat at least four times a day.


It is suggested that two litres of Nano silver and a nano silver spray are purchased initially.

Nano silver preparations are available from the Natural Dispensary (01453 757 792) and from Noble Naturals Ltd (01342 457 170).


Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) introduced the germ theory of infection during 1880s. At about the same time, another French scientist, Claude Bernard (1813-78), who is regarded as the father of modern physiology, introduced a rival ‘milieu intérieur’ (biological terrain) theory of infection. Bernard proposed that the biological terrain is of greater importance in causing infectious disease than the microbe. ​

Shortly before he died in 1895, Pasteur conceded to Bernard, with the remark, ​


“La bactérie n’est rien. C’est le terrain qui fait tout!”


​Since then, it has become evident that both schools of thought are relevant to the spread of infection.


With dark ground microscopy, it has been shown that alkalising the body (biological terrain) significantly reduces the number of pathogenic microbes in infected subjects' blood samples. In view of this finding, it is standard practice in naturopathic medicine to include alkalising salts in the treatment of microbial illnesses.


Environmental pollution from industrial chemicals, exhaust fumes and electromagnetic radiation impairs healthy global ecosystems predisposing  to epidemic infectious diseases.
