Dr Bourne is a retired NHS general practitioner with a long interest in non suppressive medicine. People who attend mainly have chronic medical conditions that have not responded to previous treatment.
For example, some patients have high voltage mercury amalgam dental fillings that cause headaches, fatigue and chronic illnesses and most patients with so-called irritable bowel syndrome have an intestinal micro parasite infection (giardia lamblia) that responds to selected naturopathic treatment.

Making an appointment
Please phone 07717 833702.
If no reply, please text or email your name, phone number and good times for call back.
Initial consultation - £200.
Follow-up consultation- £150.
(Payment only by cash, cheque or bank transfer).
Treatment is naturopathic and based on complementary, integrative, functional and holistic medicine. Dr Bourne uses vegatest technology to assist with diagnosis and treatment selection. This is a branch of bio electronic regulatory medicine that does not cause any discomfort. Vegatesting is explained in section 8 in the articles box opposite.
After vegatesting, Dr Bourne's wife, Valerie, checks the vegatest findings with clinical kinesiology (muscle testing). When a treatment is not confirmed, with kinesiology, vegatesting is repeated.
Some conditions treated at this clinic
Alopecia, allergy, anxiety/depression, autoimmune conditions, Crohn's disease, chronic dermatitis, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic infection (including old glandular fever, Lyme Disease, candida and chlamydia), coeliac disease, dental mercury, dermatitis, eczema, endometriosis, food intolerance, gastric hyperacidity, high blood pressure, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome, metabolic syndrome, psoriasis, thyroid gland malfunction (1), ulcerative colitis.
1. See 'endocrine disruption' - article 5 in the articles box opposite.
A consultation averages two hours. Follow-up consultations are about every four weeks. The clinic is closed on 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 involves 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 naturopathic supplements and would like to have them checked, please do not take them on the day you come and bring samples with you.
Please do not wear a watch or carry a mobile phone as batteries have electric fields that could interfere with electronic testing.
Since the 1980’s, 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. In view of this, patients order their treatments by phone directly from the suppliers.
After a consultation, Dr Bourne emails each patient with how to order and take the selected treatments.

Dental mercury, electric currents and chronic tiredness
“I first consulted Dr Bourne during 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 with a view to having 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 have been able to concentrate better at work. My tiredness actually cleared up immediately 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 and this year it came back again in September. It also cleared up immediately after my high voltage dental fillings had been replaced.
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 treatment pathways, interacting with the patient and putting passion into his approach.
Elena (November 2020)
Dental amalgam fillings contain several metals particularly mercury, zinc, and tin. Saliva is acidic and such metals in acid form a battery that generates electricity. It is this electricity in people’s mouths rather than chronic mercury poisoning, that causes dental amalgam patients to feel abnormally tired. An earthing mat can temporarily drain away the static electricity and help such electrically stressed people to become clearer headed.
Conventional research on cadavers has shown that mercury from amalgam fillings is deposited particularly in the brain and in the kidneys. Mercury particles in the brain are micro aerials that attract harmful electromagnetic radiation and cause people with dental amalgam to feel ‘phased out’ when in electromagnetically polluted areas such as airports and underground railways.
Mercury deposited in the kidneys impairs renal function, which is why there is a much higher incidence of renal failure patients on dialysis in wealthy countries than in third world countries that cannot afford much dental treatment.
Replacing mercury amalgam dental fillings causes extra release of mercury into the body. In view of this, mercury free dentists may collaborate with colleagues, who can treat mercury poisoning.
"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." (Ana)
“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".
“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 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.
"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"!
"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".
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 homeopathic 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".
