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. What Universal Medicine presents makes perfect sense, there are no rules or dogma just a simple approach to life bringing in qualities of self-love and self care, this is key to experiencing greater health, vitality and well-being and supports you to have more deeply loving relationships.

  2. “ultimately the responsibility for your own wellbeing lies within you” When we expect someone else to ‘fix’ us when we don’t care for ourselves we will keep going back to the fixer to get fixed but when we take responsibility for ourselves we can work with the health care professionals and take responsibility for making changes that support our own wellbeing.

  3. I fully concur with this – over the past 9 years, every presentation delivered by Serge Benhayon and all sessions with practitioners of Universal Medicine I have attended, it is always brought back to the deeper understanding of the choices we have made during our lives is reflected in how we are today. There is nothing to fix, only to expose that which is not true and make new choices to re-align to that which is true in our essence.
    “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”.

  4. “ultimately the only saviour of you is yourself. That ultimately the responsibility for your own wellbeing lies within you.” This is the wisdom we need to grow up with, this is the wisdom that needs to be tough in schools.
    Our health care systems throughout the world are becoming bankrupt and this is because we have ignored this inner wisdom which in truth can not be ignored.

  5. My right to choose my own diet is supported by listening to my own body – this is the universal wisdom that Universal Medicine teaches.

  6. There are many different types of fitness other than the physical fitness we all strive for. The fitness that lets a body fully rest at night is not a common understanding, but it takes a well of energy in the body to sleep well.

  7. “I am now a student – of myself in totality” Being a student in no way has to mean compliantly accepting the information we hear from lectures, books or any presentation, but can actually be a commitment to observing life and learning through feelings, experiences and our relationship to how we live what is out there, and our role in it all.

  8. Absolutely agree E.W. Universal Medicine is all about becoming a student of our own lives, ourselves, and learning from the very real experience that our body is reflecting to us all the time.

  9. Universal Medicine stands indeed for self-responsibility and being one’s own free agent – to the nth degree and such an extent that it makes mainstream … (fill in the gap from the wide array of what is deemed ‘normal’) look like a veritable imprisonment.

  10. Great blog and testimony to Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon. Why is there so much hysteria about people changing diets to something that is healthy and that they truly feel supports them yet not so much hysteria to the increase mental health problems, increase in depression (especially with young people and children!), number of suicides, number of homeless people, why there are so many refugees or indeed why there are refugees etc? Surely we should be looking at this and asking ourselves why and not looking at people taking care of themselves and asking why?!!!

  11. Fabulous blog. This . . . “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.” . . . is how I also feel. Well said!

  12. You make a great point that the Esoteric therapies as presented by Serge Benhayon, are the only ones I have come across that have the understanding that the client is responsible for their healing and choices and need to take an active role in the healing process. As a nurse and students of public health, I can see that this is what is missing in our current approach to healthcare. As a student of my own healing, I have found taking ownership of my choices has been incredibly empowering and evolving.

  13. When simplicity is not openly received but instead confrontation and attack is the response, we ought to re-evaluate our entire way of living as a society.

  14. The tools that Serge Benhayon has given to the world are very simple yet very effective which is to take care of ourselves, to hold our self in high regard. I cannot ever remember anyone telling me that it was so important to look after ourselves first and foremost. I have discovered that by taking care of me, I naturally have a greater capacity to care for others and it is not a strain or a burden to do this.

    1. Yes, it is strange that this is not current practice, in fact the opposite is often encouraged, for example self-sacrifice.

  15. The essence of all the presentations I have heard at Universal Medicine are that we are responsible for our own healing and wellbeing. This is liberating in the sense that whilst I can follow general healthy guidelines the quality of my choices are what determines my inner wellbeing.

  16. We can only ever be students of ourselves and the more we realise this, the less we will be inclined to give our power away to others.

  17. It seems that the more we take responsibility for our own health such as food choices our bodies communicate loudly and clearly what is supportive and what is not.

  18. I agree, it is a simple concept – optimise the effect of the practitioner, offer the patient to optimise their ability to heal, use a modality that works and you may well have exceptional outcomes.

  19. I love your thorough investigation language it makes me feel that all areas are covered and I find a huge sense of responsibility from how you write. This ties in with the universal medicine healing sessions where clients not only receive but participate in the healing, that is also self-responsibility that feels steady and empowering.

  20. There were so many great points covered in this blog. To me, Universal Medicine offers everything that society needs to rediscover health, vitality and well-being. Awareness and a willingness to respond are key, as well as the authors final point that no one saves us but ourselves. We have everything within us that we could ever need.

  21. The fact that Universal Medicine promotes self-responsibility and self-awareness is the very reason why many people shy away from this organisation. It does not offer a quick fix rather presents that the responsibility for your healing lies within you.
