Universal Medicine Restores Conventional Medicine to its Healing Roots

by Dr Anne Malatt MBBS, MS, FRANZCO, FRACS

Modern medicine is amazing. What we are able to do to support the human being in existence is incredible.  The recent advances in technology, surgery and pharmacology that we work with today and the research that will bring us new advances in the near future are nothing short of miraculous. Doctors and allied health professionals are dedicated and hardworking individuals who practise their professions with the greatest integrity they can.

So, why are the rates of illness and disease rising?

Why are people getting sicker quicker, and younger?

Why are we getting multiple symptoms and more complex illnesses that are becoming harder to diagnose and treat?

Why are we, as individuals, as health practitioners and as a society, becoming more exhausted, even given up?

These and other questions led me to search outside my traditional training for answers.  This search eventually led me back to my roots.

The roots of modern medicine are ancient.  They are grounded in the work of the ancient Greek philosophers.  Pythagoras proposed that there was a way of life, which if lived on a daily basis, would not only largely prevent us  being sick, but would lead us to true health.

What is true health?

Most of us consider health to be the absence of serious illness and disease.

We say we are healthy, or well, but do not consider how we would feel without that coffee to jump-start us in the morning, the pain killers to dull the niggling aches in our bones and joints, the other tablets we take to manage our chronic conditions, the sugar and caffeine we ingest to fuel us through the day, and the alcohol we use to pick us up after a hard day and to take the edge off the pain we are feeling. We also do not consider how we would feel if we could not have the “treats” we use to reward and distract ourselves- cake, movies, sports, holidays, etc.

True health is a state in which we feel joy-full, loving and harmonious, every single day.

Anything less than this, is living less than who we truly are.

What if there was a way of life that could lead us back to true health?

The ancient Greeks proposed that there was, that there was a way of being that could lead us back to our true selves.  This was not a set of rules, but a way of living connected to the body, listening to the body, understanding that the body was a marker of truth and that if we listened to it, we would learn how to live.

This way of living leads to a simplicity of being.  It may not look so exciting from the outside to begin with, and some of the things your body tells you may be hard to hear, but if practised with dedication and love, it leads to a feeling of joy you would not have dreamed to be possible. From the outside, your life may look much the same, but living from the innermost out, changes everything.

Medical and scientific research is starting to support this.  Much of this research (psychoneuroimmunology, epigenetics) has been around for decades, but it has not been embraced by the mainstream, because it tells us that the way we live matters, that what we think, say and do affects ourselves and everyone else, and this is a level of responsibility that most of us are not yet ready for.

Medicine is slowly coming to the understanding that the way we live makes a difference.  Research is finally focusing on “lifestyle” factors and their contribution to illness and disease.

But why wait for research to prove what, in truth, we already know?

We all know what heals us and what harms us. We have just chosen to ignore the truth of what our body knows and feels. We all know that alcohol is a massive sugar hit and it numbs us and takes the edge off our pain. We all know that coffee picks us up, but we feel even worse (and hungry) half an hour later. We know that gluten makes us feel tired and heavy, often bloated, and can upset our digestion. We know that dairy increases mucus secretion and can block our sinuses, ears and lungs. We know that sugar makes us racy, running our body faster than its natural rhythm, and in a way that leaves us feeling exhausted, so we crave more. We know that we start to feel tired around 8-9pm, and that we need to eat, drink, watch TV or do something stimulating to keep us up past this hour.

If we know all this, why don’t we live this simplicity?

We also know that if we take away all the stimulants, the distractions, and the things that numb us, we will have to feel the pain we are truly in. Most of us don’t want to feel that. Most of us don’t even realise we are in pain, because the way we live numbs and distracts us from this fact. The pain is deep and old and buried under layers of coping mechanisms, and we have been living this way for so long that we think it is normal.

If we were to truly feel and focus on the pain, it would be overwhelming, so we do everything we can to avoid it.

But what if the pain was on the surface and nothing compared to the greatness of who we truly are?

Where we get stuck is thinking the pain is everything, but this is the grand illusion.

We are amazing. Beyond our understanding. All we need to do is take the time to stop, be still, and feel who we truly are. It just takes a few moments each morning, before we get caught up in the day, to stop, be with ourselves and breathe gently, so that we are breathing our own breath.  This will allow us to feel who we truly are, and if we live from this knowing, we will make true choices in our daily lives, that will bring us back to true health.  It is just a choice, to live from within.

My life and work have been inspired and informed by the life and work of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine.  May you be inspired, too.

  1. Universal Medicine presentations have supported and inspired me to live a life of love, joy, have deeper connections with others, and have more vitality and energy than I ever thought was possible – allowing my body to truly heal.

  2. Modern medicine is amazing at fixing us but it doesn’t get to the root cause. Only we can do this. By looking at our hurts, dealing with the pain that is there and living in a way that supports and nurtures us. This way of living, combined with medicine is incredibly effective.

    EM for AM

  3. “What we are able to do to support the human being in existence is incredible.” And therein lies part of the problem – we accept merely existing and function as a normal way of living believing that the pain of dealing with our hurts would be too much but in reality isn’t at all.

  4. “True health is a state in which we feel joy-full, loving and harmonious, every single day.” When we choose to live in harmony with the rhythm of our body we can feel a return to a true way of living.

  5. It seems that those of us who swim in the main stream of life are not so willing to have pointed out that the way we live is not conducive to our true health and vitality because we are not yet willing to take responsibility for the wayward way that we are choosing to live. All this because we have made living from the head at the expense of the body our alarming ‘normal,’ in complete denial of the truth that we are held in a universal rhythm that pulses from within and is reflected all around us in all that man has not created. With our current rates of illness and disease, the choice to ‘live from within’ is a choice that we cannot afford to live without. You have presented this wisdom exquisitely Anne, so simple and so true, thankyou.

  6. What strikes me about your point about most of us not being ready to be responsible for all our actions is that whether we are ready for this level or responsibility or not, we nevertheless affect everyone else with all that we say, do and think.

  7. Stopping each day for 5 minutes to breathe has made a huge difference to my life: I feel calmer, less anxious and stressed, and I’m starting to remember to stop at various other points during the day and feel the impact of the choices I’m making. It takes commitment and will to start making small changes, but the key is to start somewhere, and build from there.

  8. The pace of life is generally pretty hectic and there is a lot in the day that can disturb us, so having these times during the day when we regroup with ourselves and just allow ourselves to breathe gently and connect to ourselves on a deeper level are invaluable.

  9. Serge Benhayon presents the teachings of the Ageless Wisdom and is an inspiration to us all that true health and vitality are restored by the choices we make in the way we live as in The Way of The Livingness.

  10. Thank you Anne, and the responsibility that resonates within the ancient ways is certainly what is needed now, where the buck always seems to stop with someone else, never with the result of our own choices

  11. As you say Anne, research is now accepting that at least 50% of all illness and disease is avoidable and totally down to lifestyle choices. One day it will be accepted that at least 80% of illness and disease is caused by us to ourself by our lifestyle choices. When we consider the financial costs of this as a whole there is a mind boggling amount of money being wasted because people don’t take care of themselves. Said without judgment because before Universal Medicine helped me to become aware of what I was doing I was equally if not more so making myself ill though my choices.

  12. I am totally inspired by this blog Anne, and equally-so, the work of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine.
    “My life and work have been inspired and informed by the life and work of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine. May you be inspired, too”.

  13. “We are amazing. Beyond our understanding.” A bold statement one may think, when we look at today’s society and all the horrors that take place. But so very true and we all know and glimpse some moments of it. There is so much beauty in each of us but we do not let it out and shine brightly in every moment; instead we get sucked into the daily treadmill of getting things done and over with. There is so much to appreciate in one another and we deserve to be adored and cherished, always.

  14. Such a clear and concise account of what true medicine is and what it originally set out to do – true medicine is universal medicine and Universal Medicine delivers it and shows the way.

  15. Deeply amazing Anne Malatt, thank-you. The thing that strikes me is the simplicity offered here in regards to what a true relationship with our body can offer us: “if we listened to it, we would learn how to live.”
    I am struck by the fact – something I’ve felt since quite young – that most do not appear to be ‘truly living’. There is not a vibrancy, a joy and an inherent connectedness to the divine, and to a purposeful sense in life that runs in our veins as a whole – and yet, this is very, very possible… if we but listen…

  16. Technology and Medicine can only take us so far. The rest is up to us to choose a living way that does not repeat the circumstances. Otherwise we end up as we are now, multiple diseases with multiple symptoms that can only be temporarily halted.

  17. I love that you have exposed the pain and hurts that for many lie under layers of coping mechanisms…for this is often so normal that there is little awareness of it and therefore little pull to do anything about it. With out having the veil removed we will continue to walk in the ignorance of being well when we are only in the illusion of that, propped up by our many vices that stop us from seeing the truth of our ill health.

  18. Anne your sentence here sums it up for me ‘Medicine is slowly coming to the understanding that the way we live makes a difference. Research is finally focusing on “lifestyle” factors and their contribution to illness and disease.’ It is definitely time we started to take responsibility for the choices we make and the effect that has on our body.

  19. True health is not the lack of illness, it is a vitality that can be felt in every cell and a gentle strength that effortlessly supports all others that you interact with.

  20. I used to write off conventional medicine completely, and I am actually beginning to wonder if it was more to do with my personal experience of doctors and the system, rather than the medicine itself. I knew where the lack was, it was so easy to find fault with what was available and I was also unwilling to take my part of responsibility. It would be wonderful if all the doctors had the level of awareness as you have, Anne, but from this end, we as general public also have to be willing to be honest and actively participatory in our own healing to see where the root cause might lie.

  21. I was approached by a couple of men yesterday that saw and expressed pain as a ‘bad’ thing. In my response I said that pain was a message from God to help us because we had chosen to separate from God. It is interesting what we choose to bury ourselves in to not only avoid the pain but also see it as something that has been put on us. We cannot blame or escape pain. It is there and will always be there within unless we choose to feel and deal with it.

  22. Yes we all know about all the harmful things we do but how many really look at why? No, no instead we look everywhere for answers except where they obviously are.
