An Investigator’s Perspective (Part 3): Through Universal Medicine I am now a Student of Myself

by E.W. Police Officer, Australia

I have been attending Universal Medicine (UniMed) workshops and courses since 2003; during this time I have never experienced anything other than the utmost professionalism. No subject presented, or statement made, has ever been delivered as a sermon or with any hint of prejudice. Neither is there any sense of obligation that one must follow advice or suggestions in order to be accepted. Quite simply what is delivered is a simple, informed and straightforward presentation. Take it or leave it, the choice is the individual’s.

I have never seen anyone present live to an audience and follow a subject or topic/s through with such consistency, and to do so without preparation or aids. Not only is each topic covered with consistency, but the topics are also often shown to interconnect and interrelate, following a logical pattern and flow. Serge Benhayon actually makes this look simple. And to an observer familiar with how challenging it is to present live and to do so with such integrity – this in itself is worthy of attention. 

As for the UniMed healing and teachings… can anyone really single out Serge Benhayon when what is already mainstream, when closely examined, could be regarded as far more outlandish in their claims and methods? Many of these less mainstream modalities claim to heal, and often do so using ‘energy’. Yet none demand the application of integrity in the lived life of the practitioner before engaging in the healing practice. In many of these modalities the client is regarded as a recipient and NOT a participant in their own healing.

Universal Medicine presented material and healing is the only modality I am aware of that encourages participation by the recipient of the healing; where the client is central to and also responsible for where they are at. And importantly, they are helped to understand that the choices they made were always theirs. One cannot always choose one’s predicaments, but we can always choose how we view them and are hence better able to choose differently and move forward from there.

As for the controversy regarding changes to one’s diet as undertaken by many UniMed students – there is already much evidence that supports and attests to the benefits of avoiding gluten, dairy and alcohol in the diet. Why then all the hysteria about these students changing their diets to feel better and improve their health? Particularly given that we live in a world increasingly plagued by obesity and diet-related illness (diabetes to name one), and this is occurring despite the multitude of diet fads that abound. The attempt to uniquely and selectively criticise Universal Medicine on these grounds makes absolutely no sense!

Before I attended UniMed I was very physically fit, or so it appeared – but I was also always tired and in constant need of energy from high sugar foods to sustain me. Behind it all, I discovered I suffered chronic indigestion and heartburn that, as it turns out, was a result of my diet and alcohol intake – which, comparatively speaking in society today, was very moderate.

The best evidence when it comes to knowing what foods to eat for me rests with my own willingness to try, then observe the changes that subtly begin to have effect on my body – for me that meant no more bloating, no more digestive problems and greater energy, in particular a faster recovery time after exercise. I have also developed a greater sense of understanding my own body.

And this is from someone who once used to be exhausted, falling ill every two or three months with some ailment or infection – and yet I was considered healthy!

I also suffered from an undiagnosed and excruciating pain that would frequently wake me in the middle of the night. I would be paralysed with pain along both sides of my body that even made breathing very difficult. I was unable to move until the pain passed. It is amazing to think that the following day I would only briefly remember this and rarely paid attention to it, ignoring each occurrence and continuing on as normal.

Today that pain and discomfort is a thing of the past. I am still fit, but have the energy and mobility of those much younger than me. I rarely fall ill… in fact, I have never been as healthy: at my recent medical, the doctor (after rechecking my results) joked that the geneticist would be after me!

There are differing types of fitness and the one I have now is easy to maintain, harmonious, comparatively effortless and stress free. No one in UniMed has discouraged exercise – only to be aware of the impact of excessive exercise on the body – and that, from my own experience, I can only agree with.

I now see that when you observe and truly care for yourself you become your own best friend, guide, doctor, counsellor and teacher. Through Universal Medicine I am now a student – of myself in totality.

I regard Universal Medicine as an organisation that promotes self-responsibility and self-awareness. UniMed renders back to the student the simple truth that ultimately the only saviour of you is yourself. That ultimately the responsibility for your own wellbeing lies within you. To me it represents a universal and living application of true intelligence and awareness to daily living.

  1. “UniMed renders back to the student the simple truth that ultimately the only saviour of you is yourself. That ultimately the responsibility for your own wellbeing lies within you.” When one has this attitude to wellbeing it establishes a completely different relationship with the medical profession to the one usually developed which is ‘to be fixed’.

  2. ‘I regard Universal Medicine as an organisation that promotes self-responsibility and self-awareness.’ In my experience I regard it the same. I feel more responsible and aware than ever before and with that, I’m not the only one who has benefitted, but the community I live in as well, which is a great contribution to the whole I am part of.

  3. How can anyone present for 5 days, with no prop, starting from a point and being able to land somewhere that brings together everything that happened in-between, including all the questions and sharing from participants that were given in response to what’s been presented. I have been to Universal Medicine retreats several times and it all happens so natural and I forget how extraordinary this whole thing is. Observing Serge Benhayon lets me know there is a very different way of being that allows us to be the extraordinary that actually is our very normal.

    1. So very true Fumiyo, and having been inspired by Serge Benhayon’s reflection I have transformed my life.

  4. I waited for many years to find a rescuer, but it was a fruitless search. ‘UniMed renders back to the student the simple truth that ultimately the only saviour of you is yourself…’ To me this makes sense and offers true self-empowerment and true long lasting change.

  5. “I now see that when you observe and truly care for yourself you become your own best friend, guide, doctor, counsellor and teacher.” I too made the same discovery thanks to studying Universal Medicine, one that has also transformed the quality of my health beyond all expectation. I still seek the support of my doctor and esoteric practitioner when my body needs it, another positive shift in behaviour, but I now know without doubt that I am the one in charge of the quality of my health underpinned by how I choose to live each day.

  6. There is fitness that we usually prescribe to and then there is true health. The two don’t necessarily go hand-in-hand. The usual methods of getting fit, as you share EW, doesn’t truly support full health and well-being.

  7. When presented with True presentation that is getting amazing results from so many differing conditions, is it any wonder that there are so many students writing glowing testimonials?

  8. I am finding that what I can eat is constantly changing. Foods that were once fine are fine no longer… some make me bloat and some build mucus… so it’s a constant refining and observing how food is with my body.

  9. I love how you have spoken about fitness and the craving of sugar for that extra lift. I used to believe in the saying ‘work hard play hard’ and if I am honest I was running my whole body in exhaustion, really not looking after my body at all. Now I know the value of truly caring for ourselves by making detailed choices of what to eat, how much to exercise and most of all not pushing the body through more than it naturally feels to go.

  10. So what is true health and fitness then – is it being able to run a marathon or swim a long distance regardless of how the body feels and what else is suffering along the way? Or is there a fitness that allows the body to be strong but only as much as is truly needed, and always done in a way that honours the body and does not tire it out and exhaust it or burn out its immunity? In my experience the latter is indeed possible – I used to be part of the former, but no matter how hard I tried and no matter how hard I worked out and trained, I was still easily unwell and unhappy. I would not be able to run as far as I used to, but today I feel much more in tune with my body than I ever have before, and I prefer this way of living for sure!

  11. E.W., I love how you have exposed the fact that we can think that if we are physically fit then we are actually healthy. I too used to pride myself of being super fit – running 2-3 times per week 7km, doing yoga 1-2 hours or more per day and yet despite being physically ‘fit’ I got frequent chest infections and urinary tract infections and was often fatigued and depressed through the day. I had the limited belief that if I could be strong and fit with my muscles then I was healthy, but that is not what true health is about.
