I am writing in response to the unfair and grossly untrue media allegations made against Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine over the past week.
I came to Universal Medicine when all areas of my life and health were so dysfunctional that I knew I urgently needed to make drastic changes. Although I had tried many different modalities, even becoming qualified in some, I had disconnected from myself to such an extent that I had been addicted to a prescription medication (a Benzodiazepine) for many years. Eventually I became very ill because I had become intolerant to the drug. The modalities I extensively experienced at the Universal Medicine Clinic were Esoteric Chakra-puncture, Esoteric Massage, Esoteric Breast Massage, Esoteric Ovary Massage, Esoteric Physiotherapy and Psychology. I also attended Level 1 – 4 Sacred Esoteric Healing Courses. The insights that I gained into myself through these workshops, lectures and treatments helped me unravel what I had done to get myself into this state and I gradually began to turn my life around.
I did seek advice from Universal Medicine but the kind of advice that I received was not what I wanted – it was what I needed. I wanted to be told what to do, instead I received advice like: ‘Connect to yourself – the answer is within you,’ or ‘Just be love.’ This was quite difficult for me because at that time I had no idea what that actually meant at first.
Serge through his lectures at Universal Medicine helped me understand that I am responsible for my life. I learned that my health and life was a reflection of past decisions and that I could not blame anyone or anything for the predicaments that I found myself in. This was difficult for me to accept because it seemed so much easier to blame others. I have learned how to live my life gently and simply and to eat only nourishing foods that support my body. I have had to take responsibility for everything that I do – including how I think and speak … and I am still learning and developing this way of life. How could this advice be harmful?
Universal Medicine was not able to advise me on how to safely get off the benzodiazepines – this I had to find out for myself but the many treatments that I received over the years helped my struggling body come to a semblance of equilibrium as it detoxed from the low dose of drug that I had been taking. The treatments did this by supporting my shattered central nervous and endocrine systems. I am now 17 months off the benzodiazepines but my healing is not complete. My body is still recovering from the damage that the years of addiction caused. I am slowly regaining my health and my life. I have added to my teaching qualifications and now work in a large post-secondary teaching/training organisation, thanks to the loving support I have received from Universal Medicine.
Is Universal Medicine A Cult? I strongly disagree with the allegations that Universal Medicine is a cult. I do not give any part of my income to Universal Medicine nor have I ever been asked to do so. I pay to attend Universal Medicine workshops which I am free to attend at my own discretion – no workshop or lecture is compulsory, nor are participants told what they must do and how they must live. Information is presented and it is up to each participant to accept what is presented or not. I and every other Universal Medicine student come and go as we please and our decisions are our own responsibility. Put simply, if Universal Medicine is a cult these freedoms would not be there.
All Universal Medicine practitioners choose to abide by a strict code of ethics. The love and care shown to me over the years go beyond description. I truly owe my life to this wonderful organisation and all that is left for me to say is ‘thank you Serge for creating Universal Medicine for humanity.’
