Pity, but thanks.

Several items now become evident;

The article referring to Universal Medicine as a cult with Serge Benhayon pictured, leads us to believe that the Healers Healer is no longer Healing. He looks bleeding ill! Or given that he obviously has some major health issues himself, he wasn't actually a Healer after all?

Secondly and hopefully the two very ill people mentioned by you, received real medical treatment in time and not the false promises from a fear mongering, charlatan con-cult leader.
Importantly it is timely to reflect on true science here. Given that 90 percent of an Iceberg is submerged and only 1/10 is visible, that would therefore and thus mean there are numerous other survivors of the false practices of Universal Medicine floating around.

'O Captain, My Captain!' The mighty Titanic sunk, your ship is sinking too.

Alternative cancer therapies linked to reduced survival
By Alex Therrien Health reporter, BBC News 20 July 2018


Quote

The paper's authors said it was likely the results for those who used alternative therapies would have been worse were it not for the fact that they were a group that had better cancer survival chances to begin with.

There are times when rolling around the floor laughing, mindfully and gently, comes into conflict with a conscious decision to live truthfully and without fear. At the end of the day, the Fact is, if Universal Medicine wasn’t a cult registered on this site, with over 212,935 views to date (and counting), then this essay, written in response to the absolute bunk contained within Mr Benhayon’s letter to ‘elucidate’ the public, wouldn’t have to be either written or read. The simple Fact is Universal Medicine is a cult run by a conman and that is disturbing (FACT). Serge Benhayon, his family and the Sushi train of ever changing partners all benefit from ill and disenfranchised people and if Grima Wormtongue stopped hiding behind a very small number of zealots (as cults go) and had the decency to actually show his face and speak openly to his critics, then the obvious would be made clear and history wouldn’t be tainted by the double-speak of a very successful conman and his equally deceptive and predatory family. This response letter is intended to be an illumination to the readers.

Dear World,
What we see in Mr Benhayon’s recent response (https://www.universalmedicine.com.au/blog/a-one-sided-conversation-professor-john-dwyer-echo-chamber-his-own-prejudice ) to Prof. John Dwyer’s critique (http://theconversation.com/why-consumers-need-better-protection-from-dodgy-health-care-the-case-of-universal-medicine-95144 ) is that he’s up to his old tricks of spinning half-truths and omitted facts once again into the blend of Universal Medicine integrity double-speak. Mr Benhayon claimed that there was a ‘misrepresentation of the evidence’. What follows is the whole truth. You won’t read it on any Universal Medicine site.

1. Prof. Dwyer did ‘not even have the decency to engage Universal Medicine directly’. What Mr Benhayon omits is that he steadfastly refuses all interviews with anyone who may be objectively critical of the operations of Mr Benhayon and Universal Medicine. Mr Benhayon would not welcome questioning from Prof Dwyer who he already knew has been openly critical of Universal Medicine including openly critical in a parliamentary inquiry. Presumably Prof. Dwyer understood this and sent someone else.

2. Mr Benhayon welcomes ‘genuine inquiries of research interest’. Firstly you couldn’t get much more of an informed scientific critique than the one offered by Prof. Dwyer or a number of other reputable scientific opinions, all of whom utterly reject the scientific basis for Universal Medicine practices. However any critical voice is immediately labelled a ‘detractor’ by Universal Medicine and its zealots. Secondly, see point one above. Thirdly, the only ‘scientific’ inquiries that have been allowed to date on UM techniques have been by individuals who are deeply, psychologically, socially and financially , invested in Universal Medicine including; Mr Christoph Schnelle, Ms Kate Greenaway & Ms Danielle Pirera. Needless to say, because of the obvious conflict of interest, these studies are by definition unscientific. In short they are heavily and obviously biased, cannot be objective and therefore not worth the recycled paper that they are written on. While Mr Schnelle’s papers have been published in reputable journals this has only occurred because the journals report that Mr Schnelle did not declare a conflict of interest or his invested relationship with Universal Medicine. What would the well-respected journals gain by lying? Mr Schnelle is currently under investigation by his supervising university. This point seems to escape the scientific and ethical comprehension of both Mr Benhayon and Mr Schnelle who still continue to make spurious claims based on these reports. For example, Mr Benhayon claims that this is ‘substantial evidence’. Instead it can only be objectively described as an unscientific, deeply flawed, subjectively biased account where an acolyte discovers that his master’s techniques are very effective. You don’t have to be Einstein to appreciate the scientific error.

3. Mr Benhayon claims that ‘he has made inquiries ‘about the study in JMIR’. The inference being that he wasn’t aware of it, or only partially aware in a broad sense, and thus he needed to make ‘inquiries’. However, there is nothing that is undertaken by Universal Medicine acolytes that does not require being ‘energetically’ vetted and approved by Mr Benhayon. Given Mr Benhayon’s eagerness to shore up scientific credibility, an eagerness that is evidenced in his response, and given the financial rewards that would flow from that credibility, it beggars belief that Mr Benhayon wasn’t intimately involved in each step. Also, Mr Benhayon in his response notes that Universal Medicine ‘welcomes scientific inquiries’. This suggests that scientific inquiries do not occur ad hoc and instead involve a controlled process. A fact which again contradicts the inference that he was only partially aware at best.

4. Putting aside the question of scientific evidence and turning to Mr Benhayon’s claim that Universal Medicine women are significantly healthier than the general population. What Mr Benhayon and Mr Schnelle omit is that this is an entirely unsurprising finding given that individuals who are better educated report better health regardless of what religion they belong to!

5. Mr Benhayon then draws attention to positives arising from Mr Schnelle’s biased account. However does not draw attention to paradoxical findings. Significantly he omits the observation that there is no difference between the number of people with cancer in the general public and those with cancer in Universal Medicine. Yet Universal Medicine advertises itself as a clinic that offers 'healing' services and invests heavily in the idea of energetic causes, and implicitly energetic cures, based on the teachings and modalities of the founder Serge Benhayon. The fact that the rate is the same with or without Universal Medicines intervention and the ‘accredited practitioners’ is not something trumpeted by either Mr Benhayon or Mr Schnelle.

6. Mr Benhayon also omits to mention the negative findings. This includes that woman in Universal Medicine were reported as have significantly higher abnormal pap smear results. Mr Benhayon did not raise this as an issue.

7. Mr Benhayon states that he ‘runs a successful business”. What he fails to mention is that Universal Medicine is not just a business. It is also simultaneously a religion. However Mr Benhayon consistently fails to disclose this in contexts where he is seeking legitimacy for his practice under the ‘successful health business’ facade. This is not surprising because to infer that he was the second coming or that evil spirits sniff your energy or that everybody who doesn’t follow his teachings is ‘pranic’ and therefore possessed to varying degrees by evil forces, or that his teachings were the only true teachings and everybody else’s were works of the ‘lords of form’ or that sexual abuse was the product of past lives where the victim had been an abuser or that UM acolytes by and large only socialise with other acolytes or that acolytes are warned that your family and friends, possessed by evil forces, would try to dissuade you from following his teachings, or paying thousands of dollars effectively to belong and be further initiated, would undoubtedly not serve his interest of pursuing credibility. Best to stay mum on that one.

8. Mr Benhayon claims that UM has won business awards. What he omits is that these awards were ‘People’s Choice’ Awards from the local business council headed by his ex-wife and Universal Medicine business partner. What he fails to mention is that the 600 or so Universal Medicine acolytes were strongly ‘encouraged’ to vote online for Universal Medicine in these awards, regardless of whether they lived in the local area or even in the same country. It is hardly surprising that under these conditions that no other ‘fish and chip shop’ competitor, relying just on local, unrallied customers stood a chance. Surely this is a deception within a deception? Integrity none, nepotism bucket loads! Significantly, UM has not won any independently adjudicated awards even in this minor regional competition.

9. Mr Benhayon suggests that Ms McIntyre’s $1m plus bequest can be understood within the context of any ‘Educational or Training institution’. Notice the way Mr Benhayon slips half-truths into the argument. What Benhayon omits is that Universal Medicine is firstly not an authorised training institution and secondly that it is not just a ‘business’, but it is a religion that makes money. In this regard he fails to explain the religious context of these bequests. In particular he does not mention that he has emphasised in his teachings that to bequeath money to your family is karmically damaging to both yourself and your children if they are beneficiaries. It is however, as stated by Mr Benhayon, NOT harmful to bequeath money to the church of Universal Medicine (where he is the principle beneficiary), but is positive for good Karma in your next life. It then becomes a soulful act of ‘livingness’. Nor does he mention the degree to which his acolytes identity is bound to belonging to Universal Medicine (acolytes by and large only associate with other acolytes; acolytes eat, drink, walk, sing, dance and sleep according to strict precepts set by Mr Benhayon; acolytes only listen or read material approved by Mr Benhayon; acolytes psychological well-being is conditional on attending Universal Medicine activities, which can be 4 plus events every week) and the affect this has on the emotionally dependent and ill.

10. Mr Benhayon disparages Ms McIntyre’s children noting that they had challenged the will despite giving assurances to their mother. What Benhayon omits is that the children were unaware that Ms McIntyre had given $’s already to UM and then subsequently a similarly large sum on her death.

11. Mr Benhayon claims the bequest was for completing a ‘teaching hall’ for her community. This is a half-truth. The whole truth is that it was to complete the ‘Hall of Ancient Wisdom’ owned by Universal Medicine and for the use of the College of Universal Medicine. A hall effectively owned by Mr Benhayon on Mr Benhayon’s land. Hardly a community hall despite Mr Benhayon’s elastic definition. The truth is that Mr Benhayon was the financial beneficiary.

12. Mr Benhayon refers to a video. He does not ask the question, why was a video made shortly before her death? Whose idea was it to make a video of a dying woman that would be used to demonstrate how happy she was giving large sums of money to Mr Benhayon in a court?

13. Mr Benhayon also fails to mention how many other bequests he has received, or he is yet to receive, from other dying acolytes. In other words, how successful has Mr Benhayon been in his message that bequeathing money to ‘Universal Medicine’ as an act of, again in doublespeak, ‘livingness’? Also, how many of these acolytes were initially drawn to the ‘business’ of Universal Medicine in the disappointed hope of a cure from the ‘healer’s healer’ only to find themselves emotionally enmeshed in the ‘gentle’ religion and completely surrounded 24 hours a day, seven days a week by other acolytes gently encouraging them to do the ‘soulful’ thing and bequest to Mr Benhayon? Answering these questions may allow us more to more objectively answer the question, ‘what kind of evil business enterprise does Serge Benhayon and his family run?’

14. Mr Benhayon claims that Ms Ira McClure ‘has never spent that or any sum of money with Universal Medicine’. What Benhayon doesn’t say is that the money was given to one of his acolytes that he ‘trained’ and ‘accredited’ in the ‘modalities’ and that the money was spent in relation to practices tied to Benhayon’s teachings. This is the successful business that he refers to above, but seems to disown here. Once again the puppet strings are cut.

15. Mr Benhayon claims that there is ‘zero evidence’ to support the claim that acolytes avail themselves of Universal Medicine treatments instead of medical advice and care and points to Mr Schnelle’s biased account. Firstly, even Mr Schnelle notes that Universal Medicine acolytes attend medical care ‘less’ than the population. Secondly, given that this evidence itself is not worth the paper it is written on the real question is, is there anything in Universal Medicines teachings that would discourage students from seeking medical treatment apart from Benhayon’s own ‘anecdotal evidence’ (which, placed against the context of the litany of lies evidenced just in this one refrain, has to be accepted as just more advertising for his successful ‘business’ come ‘religion’)? The evidence here is quite clear that while Benhayon gives lip service to seeking medical attention he simultaneously describes that attention as being ‘energetically’ contaminated with a loveless energy and that this ‘energy’ will not only further contaminate your body, but also your Karma for your next lifetime. “Don’t you want a better one than this one? You wouldn’t be here if you didn’t.” Wink-wink, smile-smile and a nod of the head just for good measure! He fails to mention this just as he fails to mention the other anecdotal evidence demonstrating individuals who have both died avoiding medical advice or who have nearly died delaying approved honest treatment. Of course Mr Benhayon has millions of reasons to obscure this evidence.

16. Mr Benhayon protests that to call a business a cult or a way of life is an indictment on the person making the call. First, notice that he doesn’t actually answer the question and instead slips past by distracting with name calling. Also notice how he doesn’t draw attention to the fact that Universal Medicine is a ‘religion’ and refers to it as ‘business?’ Of course identifying it as a religion lends itself to being a ‘cult.’ Second, notice how he detracts from the force of the question by not responding to it, but instead refers to how healthy the acolytes are by again referencing the spurious evidence? The real question and answer would be something like this… a cult is defined in the following terms: (i) a living prophet who claims special superior truthful knowledge handed down by some higher being; (ii) that knowledge describes a black and white arcane and mysterious world of good and evil where everyone who doesn’t follow the superior knowledge is to varying degrees affected by evil forces; (iii) the living prophet is the only interpreter and mediator of this higher knowledge; (iv) generally a hierarchy is established with the living prophet at the top; (v) critiques are categorised as agents of evil; (vi) a strict prescription of practice determined by the living prophet; (vii) the living prophet is idolised by the acolytes and ascribed special powers; (viii) acolytes become psychologically addicted to strictly following the prescriptions of the prophet; (ix) acolytes come to believe that their wellbeing is conditional on following these prescriptions absolutely and any malaise is attributable to personal weakness and failing to follow the prescriptions; (x) the critical faculties of acolytes is systematically destroyed; (xi) the living prophet (and family) receives large sums of money from the followers. How many of these characteristics do you share? Answer, ALL OF THEM!

That’s the evidence.

Q. Is Universal Medicine and its congregation the persecuted religion they claim to be when the question of millions arises or is Universal Medicine a successful business as stated? There’s not much integrity in conveniently pretending to be a business when it suits in one context, while concealing the inconvenient religion, and then just as conveniently pretending to be a religion in a different context while concealing the inconvenient fact of the multi-million dollar, self-interested business. That’s doublespeak for integrity. In either case one thing is guaranteed. Ultimately a wolf hiding in sheep’s clothing will be sniffed out.

With love,

Print that letter out, put it in an envelope and send it to Benhayon. He’ll probably read it here (we know you like reading this thread Sergio), but just in case he’s napping, a hard copy would be a generous thing to do. His vanity will ensure it’s read to the end and then give it a couple of weeks, and you’ll hear rebuttals to all your points made through various UM channels.

600 views (and counting) in 5 days and HerbertKane178 we can guarantee Mr Benhayon is at least ONE of them!

OR the entire congregation of Universal Medicine has finally read something worth reading, The Truth. (naughty, naughty, get out your clearing cards!)

OR (and hopefully) the many family members who have for so long worried about someone they love deeply, have confirmation their fears are founded.

OR really ill people who have been wondering when the 'healing' is going to kick in before they die, know unequivocally that through Universal Medicine it NEVER will.

OR some of the latest and newest recruits who have that uneasy feeling something about the church doesn't add up, might run.

'Friends, families and world wide readers, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Grima Wormtongue, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them' and the pure evil the Benhayon family have done will be the stories of history.

Rebuttals are no concern of mine and all part of the congregations holy quest, they live to be persecuted. The important thing here is the truth is out and read by so many.

Meals undeniably shape our society, and who we eat with naturally becomes our community and support system. When you choose a diet so far outside the norm that you don’t want your own family to look too closely, that’s a wedge that only grows with time and discomfort. It’s easier for someone who believes they’re on a moral high ground to ignore warnings and surround themselves with the people who agree with them.

Do I think I was more suggestible or moody or light headed? Absolutely, and I think the other women who ate this way did too. I found it very difficult to concentrate on anything for more than an hour without my brain circling back to food. But I think it was the meaning and belief they put behind it that ultimately isolated them from the world. Because no amount of nutritional information can argue with moral righteousness.

This article is about NXIVM an entirely different group than Universal Medicine.

I Followed the NXIVM Sex Cult Diet For a Week

[www.vice.com]

However, the author's description of social isolation caused by extreme dieting and the imprisoning mental obsessions caused by adhering to such a diet - perhaps this may resemble what happens to those adherant to Serge Benhayon's diet.

They didn’t win in the end. They did get some hokey “hall of fame” award, solely on the basis that they’re pretty much the majority members of the Lismore Chamber of Commerce, but at least the public spoke and voted for more deserving people. The Chamber had to close FB comments as so much bad feeling surrounding the awards. No surprise that anything involving UM ends up in a shit fight...

So UM finally trying to make inroads in to the USA. There is an operation started in Seattle: [www.seattlewellbeing.com]

All the usual guff on the website, but no mention of harm caused by patients avoiding proper medical care, the online attack dogs stalking anyone who dares to ask questions in public, or the rather dubious history of the group.

There’s a local website called nwfacts.com promoting them with an op-ed piece, seems like they have not done due dilligence to the real facts about UM.

It appears the spiritual leader of the cult Universal Medicine, the very person the 'students' refer to as the 'one' and 'God' has accused a barrister, in court of 'trying to paint him as a madman'.

I'd say given the atrocious behavior of this particular cult leader, it is Serge Isaac Benhayon himself that has drawn, added the numbers and taken out his own paint tin, for this paint by numbers picture. All the barrister in question appears to be doing is bringing to the peoples attention the fact that Benhayon has framed himself!

HerbertKane178 I'm sorry to hear the cult has opened up an office in the USA. Stiff competition for a new cult in the US I'd say!
