Constipation and bloating

"I visited Dr Bourne for chronic constipation and bloating, and he diagnosed intestinal microparasites as the cause. His treatment worked right away. It was such a relief!"


"I first saw Dr Bourne several years ago after being prescribed unnecessary drugs by my GP. I had a persistent cough that my GP thought was due to acid reflux, and I was prescribed various drugs that made me very ill, affecting my skin and did not help the urticaria. I was recommended to Dr Bourne. On my first visit, he took his time asking me questions and using his knowledge and skills assisted by a high-tech Vega testing machine. I found out that Dr Bourne doesn't just treat symptoms; he identifies and treats the causes of the symptoms.  He prescribed some naturopathic treatments and within a week, I felt much better. All the symptoms had cleared up within 3-4 weeks. I have recommended Dr Bourne to all my family and they have also had good results."

The objectives of vegatesting are to identify and treat the causes of health deterioration.



         (See DENTAL MERCURY RESEARCH in the header index.)


        Conventional medicine treats IBS symptomatically for 'worry guts'

        prescribing  anxiolytic and antispasmodic drugs.  At this clinic, IBS

        has been found to be caused by treatable intestinal micro-parasites.  

        (See the article on irritable bowel syndrome in the header index.)



Environmental toxicity (e.g. traffic fumes), dysbiosis (unhealthy intestinal microflora), a weak immune system, food intolerances, chronic infection, electromagnetic radiation and stress (adrenal gland exhaustion). 



Vegatesting enables practitioners to identify the causes of health deterioration and to select naturopathic treatments.

Dr Bourne began vegatesting while in NHS general practice over forty years ago, when a patient with intractable migraine and malignant hypertension (uncontrollable high blood pressure), who had not been helped by conventional treatment, was successfully treated by a vegatesting doctor, (George Lewith), who identified high voltage mercury amalgam dental fillings as the cause of his poor health. Dr Bourne subsequently attended several courses on Vegatesting run by Dr Lewith and his colleagues.  

Vegatest technology encompasses complementary, integrative,  functional, holistic, nutritional, herbal and bio-resonance medicine, classical and modern (complex) homoeopathy and allergy testing. 


The technology is currently marketed by Wegamed in Germany as the TEST EXPERT PLUS, cost about £20,000. 

Vegatest health screening is summarised in the lower box opposite.


Dr Bourne's wife, Valerie, is a clinical kinesiologist, who can check Dr Bourne's findings with muscle testing. When a treatment that has been provisionally selected with vegatesting is not confirmed with muscle testing, vegatesting is repeated. 


​Arthritis can be caused by intolerance to foods in the nightshade family of vegetables (tomatoes, peppers and aubergines). For this type of arthritis, it is more scientific to exclude such poorly tolerated foods from patients' diets than to prescribe potentially toxic prescription drugs such as diclofenac and ibuprofen. 

While conventional medicine can be scientific for treating acute illnesses, it is less scientific for treating chronic illnesses such as irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, chronic dermatitis and autoimmune conditions. The reason for this is that conventional treatment does not generally include detoxification, homoeopathic medicine, nutritional medicine, herbal medicine, dealing with harmful electromagnetic radiation, supporting the immune system, correcting intestinal dysbiosis (optimising intestinal microflora) and identifying and treating toxic high voltage mercury containing 'silver' dental fillings.

In 2007, David Rose wrote in The Times (2) that nearly 3000 patients had died in the United Kingdom over the previous three years as a result of prescription drugs and that thousands more had been hospitalised because of their side effects. He also reported that the number of adverse drug reactions (ADR) had increased by 45 per cent over the previous ten years. Conventional drugs most implicated were low-dose aspirin, diuretics, the anticoagulant drug warfarin, non-steroidal anti-arthritic drugs (ibuprofen and diclofenac) and proton pump inhibitors (cimetidine and ranitidine) prescribed for gastric hyperacidity. The side effects of proton pump inhibitors include fatal gastrointestinal bleeding and fatal gastrointestinal infection.

For medico-legal reasons, cancer is not specifically treated at this clinic, although two cancer cases are included in the testimonials section of this website, whose cancers cleared up coincidentally with naturopathic health optimisation at this clinic. Self-help cancer treatment is considered in the CANCER SECTION of this website.  


  • Please drink an extra glass or two of water as vegatesting is most effective when you are well hydrated.

  • Ladies, if possible, please do not wear tights as vegatesting at this clinic involves access to your left foot. 

  • Please come with clean feet as testing is done (painlessly) on a toe of your left foot.


Please do not wear a battery watch or have a mobile phone in a pocket as batteries have electric fields that could interfere with the electronic vegatest technology. Wearing jewellery is OK. 

If you have a headache caused by high voltage mercury amalgam dental fillings, you will be earthed while being vegatested by placing a bare right foot on an earthing mat connected to a mains earth. The electricity in your body will flow away to earth and your headache will improve.


Please ensure that you have picked up all your belongings, e.g. your water bottle, watch, jewellery, gloves, medicine samples and medical papers.


Since the 1980s, Dr Bourne has collected thousands of naturopathic treatment test samples for vegatesting purposes and it would be impractical for him to stock and sell so many preparations. Given this, patients order their prescriptions by phone or Internet and pay for them by credit card.

After a consultation, Dr Bourne will email you with how to order and how to take your selected treatments.

“I first consulted Dr Bourne in August 2020 because I had been feeling abnormally tired for years. He identified two high-voltage mercury amalgam dental fillings as the cause of my tiredness. After vegatesting me and prescribing some naturopathic treatment for mercury poisoning, he advised me to consult a mercury-free dentist to have my high voltage mercury amalgam fillings replaced. 

I initially visited a mercury-free dentist in September and the fillings were replaced in November. Since they were replaced, I have no longer felt abnormally tired and I have been able to concentrate better at work. My tiredness cleared up immediately after the amalgam fillings were changed. Apparently, this was due to removing the sources of electricity in my mouth.

I used to have a sore throat every winter; this year, it returned in September. My sore throat also cleared up immediately after my high-voltage dental fillings were replaced in October. 

I highly recommend Dr Bourne’s approach and I’ve very much appreciated his professional, open-minded and patient-focused attitude. He makes accurate diagnoses and identifies the most appropriate treatments. He also interacts with the patient and puts passion into his approach. 

Elena (November 2020) 



Dental amalgam contains mercury, zinc, and tin. Saliva is acidic and such metals in acid form a battery. Clinical observation has indicated that high-voltage dental amalgam patients' vitality is restored immediately after their high-voltage dental fillings have been replaced. This observation is consistent with the chronic tiredness of high-voltage dental amalgam patients being caused by their amalgam filling associated with electric currents rather than by chronic mercury poisoning. An earthing mat (available on the Internet) can temporarily drain away the toxic static electricity and enable electrically stressed patients to become clearer-headed.

Conventional research on cadavers has shown that mercury from amalgam fillings is particularly deposited in the brain and the kidneys.


Mercury particles in the brain are micro aerials that attract harmful electromagnetic radiation and are liable to cause people with dental amalgam to feel ‘phased out’ when in electromagnetically polluted areas such as airports, near high voltage power cables and when using their mobile phones and computers.

Mercury deposited in the kidneys impairs renal function, which is why there is a much higher incidence of renal failure requiring dialysis in wealthy countries than in poor third-world countries, where most people cannot afford mercury amalgam dental fillings.


More information on the pathogenicity of dental mercury is available in the article, DENTAL MERCURY, PROPOSED CONVENTIONAL RESEARCH in the header index.


A couple of years ago, I had an inoperable tumour in a lymph node in my lower bowel. Conventional cancer treatment had not helped and I felt very low. I first attended The London Centre for Complementary Medicine in August 2019 and by April 2021 my tumour had gone. My hospital oncologist has attributed this to ‘spontaneous recovery.’ Dr Bourne’s approach included identifying harmful electromagnetic radiation as the primary cause of cancer. He picked this up with vegatesting. Dr and Mrs. Bourne subsequently came to my house and identified the location of the harmful radiation with rod dowsing and muscle testing.

They recommended Peter and Jillian Stott, who do home visits to clear harmful electromagnetic radiation ( After Peter and Jillian had been around, I straightaway felt less stressed out, less fearful, and confident that I was, at last, going to get better. Dr Bourne explained that harmful electromagnetic radiation is an incompletely understood phenomenon.

Amanda Grossman (April 2021)



Conventional treatment had been ineffective for her cancer and vegatesting indicated that harmful electromagnetic radiation was implicated. (See INTERFERENCE FIELDS in the ARTICLES section opposite and the header index). I prescribed some selected homoeopathic treatments for electromagnetic radiation, for an associated viral infection and to improve lymph drainage. I also prescribed alkalising tablets to make her body more alkaline and resistant to infection. I next asked some specialists in Feng Shui ( to visit her house to clear the harmful radiation (interference fields). My treatment approach was to improve her general health in order to increase the likelihood of her making a spontaneous recovery. I did not specifically treat her cancer. 


"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 replacing 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 look after their health." (Ana)

“I first consulted Dr Bourne in March 2018 after receiving a high PSA (prostate antibody) result and consequently having been put 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 to remove some high-voltage mercury amalgam dental fillings, which he identified as a source of toxicity that adversely affected 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. Because 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, improving 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".

“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 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 physicians, who prescribed antibiotics that did not help. 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 and the header index.


"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 to help him. Then I heard about Dr Bourne. He was more affordable and I loved 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, so he asked us to return for a free retest. This time he was spot on and the patches shrunk rapidly. We watched as the rapidly developing patches that were 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.

"I first saw Dr Bourne about 4 years ago after being described as 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 affected my skin. I kept getting episodes of urticaria. I was recommended to Dr 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 vegatesting machine. I found out that Dr Bourne doesn't just look at symptoms but he looks at the root causes of symptoms and he deals with the causes to prevent future episodes from happening. Dr Bourne prescribed some homoeopathic treatments including 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


"Dr Bourne has a very informed and holistic approach to medical diagnosis. 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 have consulted Dr Bourne for my own health needs, and was very impressed with his recommendations.”

"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 my son's toe with a blunt instrument. It sounds strange, but honestly, it is amazing! Dr Bourne prescribed drops that contained homoeopathy 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 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".


"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 includes 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".



"I first visited Dr Bourne during a very worrying time in June 2020.  A consultant surgeon had recently diagnosed a cancerous nodule in my thyroid gland and had advised me to have a total thyroidectomy.  Dr Bourne’s treatment included naturopathic detoxification and naturopathic thyroid gland support, which helped immeasurably during my healing journey. Coming for treatment with him was a profound healing experience and it was fascinating how his vegatest findings related to my current health and how my health improved after each treatment session.  I have recently had another thyroid scan, which this time did not show the cancerous nodule. The surgeon said that although he no longer recommends thyroidectomy, he will continue to see me every year to check for any cancer recurrence.  If I had not consulted Dr Bourne, I would probably already have had my thyroid gland surgically removed.  Dr Bourne has asked me to mention in my testimonial that he does not treat cancer and that his approach is naturopathic health optimisation. Even so, it seems that his naturopathic treatment and the disappearance of my thyroid cancer were not just coincidental.
