In recent days I have repaired a McGurk remedy maker for its owner, Alastair Bourne, and while chatting I found that he has lead a very interesting life. I suggested that we conduct a brief interview, to which he was gracious enough to say ‘Yes.’ Here it is. ►
► Let’s start at the beginning. Please tell us who you are, and what inspired your interest in radionics?
My name is Alastair Bourne. I started training in Chinese martial arts in the early 1950s and part of my training was TCM Acupuncture, how to paint, and how to play a musical instrument (a flute). We were taught every aspect of Chinese medicine as well as how to use Kung Fu from basic training to Dim Mak. I trained with my master for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, for three years with annual breaks of a few months. I am the current grand master of Chi Kune Jow Do Tiger Mantis Kung Fu. I no longer teach martial arts publicly. I only teach senior black belts in private. We do have a Kwoon in Auckland, and websites. Here is one: www.tigermantis.co.nz
I am pictured at nearly 90 years of age in most of the photos. I am now over 90.
► Did you do your initial martial arts training in China? What country did you actually train in, and how did you end up there?
When I was in the English army I met a man whose mother was Chinese. His father was English and was in the army based in Singers before the war where he met and married the Chinese lady. The Chinese lady had been taught Wing Chun Kung Fu and she taught her son, who I met. I saw him training one day and asked him what he was doing. I asked, “Does it work?” and he asked me to try and punch him. I couldn’t punch him of course, he was pretty good. I asked him to teach me and that was my start. Later I taught a chum what I now knew and we were in London one day and saw an older man being beaten up so we, joyful at the chance of trying things for real, leapt in and beat the shit out of the attackers. We took their watches and wallets and gave them to the old man and told him to whuck off.
An old Chinese man shuffled over and asked where we learned the Kung Fu. We told him and he offered to teach us, which we took up.
I didn’t learn in China of course, but I have been there and taught there. The people were amazed when they saw me in action as they were aware of the style but thought it had died out, because it had died out in China following the Boxer rebellion. My teacher’s family had moved to Burma which fortunately kept the style alive. Sadly I didn’t promote it much either but I am hopeful the senior students who now run classes in Auckland will revive it.
► That’s a fascinating account! It’s great that you could do a something to keep the style alive.
So what has been your career, and how did that shape your interest in radionics? Or how did radionics shape your career?
For many years I didn’t do much with the martial arts but I did treat friends when they were ill. People used to say, “Don’t get in a fight with Alastair, he puts the boot in!” Of course in the 1950s nobody in New Zealand had seen or heard of anything about martial arts apart from Judo. Acupuncture became a bit more recognised in the ‘70s, so I started to treat people publicly.
One day I met Ken McIvor, a brilliant man who used to be the NZ agent for Mora bioresonance devices. I couldn’t afford a Mora so I bought a second-hand Theratest Super, a great device which is no longer made. So now I was into bioresonance.
I no longer use acupuncture at all but I do use a bit of pressure. After so many years of Chi Kung I can now get the same results pointing at an acupuncture point that I got using needles.
After using the Theratest for a while it got me thinking, and I started to develop my own devices. Eventually I bought a device called a Scio, a great device but rubbish software. The Scio cost US$18,000. I have now developed my own device and written software for it, and it does everything a Scio does and more, and costs a fraction of the price. I don’t know where manufacturers get their prices from. I have a Mora Super too, very expensive. Mind you I bought mine as a used model.
I guess my interest increased in its use as a therapeutic agent probably around 1980.
► You have met a few well known people in radionics over the years, and have encountered various instruments. Who were some of them, and what was your experience with them?
Yes I have met quite a few great people in my travels. I think Ken McIvor, now sadly passed on, was the smartest. We did a lot of research together since we lived a few hundred yards apart. Another smart man was Bill Nelson, but he is finely tuned and kind of spoilt things for the Scio Community. I used to love touring the world lecturing at Scio seminars and selling loads of products. Ed Skilling was another great man from the USA, sadly passed on now. I believe his son is now running the business his father built up. I also had a meeting with Bruce Copen in about 1996 when we were in England, another clever man, but oddly he refused to demonstrate his devices, so naturally I didn’t buy one. Another great guy was McGurk. I have used one of his devices for at least 25 years now, which recently broke down, and I am delighted that you’ve been able to repair it for me.
Radionics is now large part of my practice using several devices for specific purposes, including subspace work (which is distance healing) which at times gets a bit spooky. I do quite a bit of work with animals now too and have developed a wide range of homeopathics to treat animals with. I have also got into working on soil and plants now with great success in some areas. When I do subspace work I like to have a hair sample and photograph which I place on the output plate of a device. Interesting that most device will do subspace.
Here is an interesting program for those who are unaware of it: Frex16, you can google it. You can use it free and then if you are happy you can get the full activated version for – from memory – AUS$90. It has more therapies to treated 1000s of pathologies than you can shake a stick at.
► I have a growing interest (no pun intended) in radionics and homeopathy for plants and gardening. Can you share any information about that?
A couple of examples. Black spot on roses is best treated with Sulphur, which has a natural affinity for this fungal disease.
Silicea should be used on trees on a yearly basis. They are long-lived and handle yearly repetition very well. It is that during flowering that the dose should be administered once.
Just add one 6X or 6C potency pill to each 200 ml of water, shake vigorously, and then spray on the leaves of your plant or water into its roots. If using the remedy for pests, spray where the pests normally gather.
► Tell us about your interest in Chi Kung. I’ve had some practice myself, but for others how would you explain it? How does it fit into the whole energy healing framework?
My interest in Chi Kung of course comes from my martial arts training. Every patient gets treated with Chi Kung as the last treatment. It’s amazing how one can move patients round the room without touching them.
Chi Kung is an ancient Chinese tradition and art that has its focus on cultivating, circulating, and harmonising so-called Chi or Life Energy with the primary purpose to become stronger, to heal oneself, and to increase wisdom and spiritual knowledge. Chi is usually translated as life energy. It is a powerful type of health exercise that has been practiced for centuries by millions of Chinese people. It’s based on repetitions of very precise sets of slow movements, much like Tai Chi, specifically designed to benefit health on many different levels. Chi Kung can harmonise, strengthen and have a healing effect on the functioning of all the internal organs and bodily systems. It increases the supply and flow of energy throughout the body, and can have a variety of rejuvenating effects on the body and mind. When used within the martial arts field it has devastating effects.
► You’ve been manufacturing some radionics and bioresonance instruments over the years. What can you tell us about them, for those of us who don’t know much about the topic?
I made my first device to invert drugs that have damaged people, and then to amplify drugs as a replacement to taking drugs. I amplify drugs up to 40,000 times and get the same results as taking the drug without any side effects. I have been kept very busy lately dealing with people who have suffered badly after being vaxed. I also designed and made the ADK colour therapy device which delivers 17 colours at 17 different frequencies, which can be used with any other device that delivers therapy and thus deliver whatever therapy that is, plus colour.
My latest is the result of getting sick and tired of expensive devices that either breaking down or have software problems. That device will make a practitioner out of anyone who wants to be involved with no need to know a thing to start with.
► Finally, what advice do you have for radionics practitioners, both beginners and more advanced?
Radionics is a method of energy-based distant healing from a few feet away to the other side of the world, it has the potential to support anyone, no matter where they might be in the world. One should recognise that all life is made up of subtle energies that can be affected by everyday traumas, emotional or physical, and can be affected by many things like accidents and illnesses. Even a thought can negatively affect people, let alone words and actions, so always bear this in mind.
