Combining Conventional Medical Treatment and Esoteric Healing – A Client’s View

by Carmel Reid BEng, DMS, Cert Ed, MCMI, Somerset, UK

Ten years ago, at the age of 52, I was obese, breathless, and diagnosed with a hyperactive thyroid. When I asked the Doctor if it was stress that caused the thyroid condition, he said yes, and we had a brief discussion about ways to reduce it (diet, exercise etc).

Since meeting with Serge Benhayon and many of the Universal Medicine practitioners, I have been learning a great deal more about what causes stress in my life, and have been amazed to find out just how much it is about me and not anything outside of myself.

Knowing that, I have been able to make better choices about how I live my life, for example, what I eat, how I sleep, how I think about life/issues and how I relate to others, particularly at work.

I am delighted to say that, at 62, my body has returned to its natural weight, my vitality has increased, my thyroid is back to normal, and I’m having a great deal of FUN.

I am grateful to everyone in the medical profession who has helped me along the way, and I will always seek a medical diagnosis if I am concerned about symptoms in my body.

I fully endorse/recommend the combination of Western Medicine and Esoteric Healing as practised with integrity by Serge Benhayon, his family, and all the practitioners who have trained with him and who work under the same code of ethics.

  1. Your transformation is truly remarkable Carmel and is a combination of not only conventional medicine and esoteric healing but also your willingness to take responsibility for your own health. It is empowering to feel how the key to our healing lies within us and we can unlock a revitalised way of living with our choices.

  2. It makes sense that how we live on a daily basis contributes to the health of our body and how we choose to react or respond to life and the levels of stress we experience. Building a more loving and caring relationship with ourselves establishes a strong and steady foundation that supports us with what life offers us to deal with and learn from and when we become ill seeking medical help when needed is part of the responsibility for the overall health of our body too.

  3. We so often see stress as pressure from outside influences yet we never clearly see that it is actually our own relationship within ourselves that is the cause, I have found when I have been confronted with what could be a stressful situation, to remain very steady within myself and not to allow my head to go into the different scenarios but to stay with whatever needs to be done at the time. Making it about the moment and not the what if.

  4. Interesting how we often perceive stress as being something outside of us, that we get affected by. Yes, there are stressful situations and people who are hyper stressed, and sometimes getting stressed feels like an uncontrollable, automatic response, especially if it’s our ‘go-to’ way of responding. But when we look at it, it really is a choice to get – and stay – stressed or not. It’s not our body’s natural way of being, so we must be having to react in a certain way, to certain triggers, for our body to go into that stress.

  5. What I can feel is the power of in-between. A pill, medical procedure, a session with a practitioner – they can all assist us in our healing, but what really matters is between those moments of highlights – how we live our every day. It is so obvious, yet this is something I totally overlooked until I came upon Universal Medicine.

  6. There is absolutely nothing I have come across that has even come close to supporting me to care for myself and my body the way The Ageless Wisdom has. I too fully endorse the combination of esoteric healing with conventional healing because I have immeasurable improvements in my health, well being and vitality. Yesterday when I arrived at a regular business meeting I go to, I walked in and the waiter who hadn’t seen me for a couple of months said to me, wow you look amazing, you are looking younger and as a young women in her 40’s that’s not what we expect to hear.

  7. If we look at illness as a sign that all is not well and we are running our body in a disharmonious way, then there is a lot to be learned, if we so choose. Making different lifestyle choices has to effect a change. For if we continue in the same way we get the same old results.

    1. Yes, we have to be honest with ourselves and that is the part we do not like because if we are honest then we feel the truth about the way we have been treating ourselves and we can feel the responsibility that comes when we make different choices.

  8. I know many students of Universal Medicine, myself included, who look more vital and have more energy even as we age. Some are even reversing chronic illnesses. Lifestyle Medicine is the way to go, and some far-thinking doctors are catching on.

  9. It is common to hear symptoms getting fixed but rarely do you hear about someone’s entire quality of well-being being turned around back to a vital and rich life from a complete opposite one. Cases like this ought to be studied and not brushed aside as “outliers” or random cases.

  10. Universal Medicine is the future healthcare today. It allows us to feel what is not supportive of our body and presents us things we can change and obliterate things that if left to run their course will require medical intervention.

  11. This is quite amazing Carmel, and goes it show that we should never give up on ourselves – it is very much worth the effort looking after our body.

  12. Amazing Carmel, yes I too have discovered that stress that I ran with for more than half my life day in and day out was all caused by me. And I was the only one who could stop it. It is so beautiful to take that pressure off one’s physiology.

  13. Medicine is about how we support the body both in the conventional sense and considering how we live, our lives, the lived medicine of our day to day adds another dimension to how we can be with our health and well being, and that’s esoteric medicine, the missing link.

  14. Through combining Conventional Medicine and Esoteric Medicine the body is very well supported, I have found on the occasions that I have combined the two I have healed much more deeply and quickly too.

  15. I have seen your before and after photos Carmel and it is without a doubt you now glow with health and vitality, you are a living miracle and proof that how we live and the choices we make can transform or support any medical condition to improve or completely heal.

  16. A great point Carmel, stress is about how we choose to live our lives (and therefore entirely in our control) and is not imposed – often cited as imposition from outside that is all too easy to blame.

  17. Yes it is true Carmel that mainstream modern medicine is accepting more and more the links between are emotional state e.g. stress and our physical health. Universal Medicine in my view has provided a great deal of insight and understanding to this link and therefore is a great complement to what conventional medicine already knows and can do for us.

  18. Carmel, you share so simply a miracle. How many people can say their body has reversed a thyroid condition? Many doctors will tell you that it is s life long illness that will require medication, constantly. So the very fact miracles can happen, you have proved.

  19. In learning to live in connection to our bodies we discover there is a whole other way of living that is far more loving and honoring, allowing our true well-being and vitality to naturally come to life

  20. Understanding our bodies from the inside out is super important, we can all feel what stresses us and why, we know the effect our particular stresses have on our physical bodies and we also know what calms us and brings steadiness and stillness back you our beingness. The only thing we don’t support each other enough to do, is to choose our stillness.

  21. I know this is a short and sweet article but that is a pretty massive change in your life and from their a huge change in how the body responded. So often we hear that we are ‘victims of society’ and yet here we have living and walking proof that that isn’t the case. Not only that we have the steps we can all take to move out of the world impacting on you. Even with this point alone would make a huge difference, “I have been learning a great deal more about what causes stress in my life, and have been amazed to find out just how much it is about me and not anything outside of myself.”

  22. I also have discovered a great deal about the connection between my health and well-being and choices that can either exacerbate stress or support myself to feel and have vitality through attending Universal Medicine presentations.

  23. One of the biggest things I have learnt from Universal Medicine when it comes to what causes stress is disconnection to myself – if I am thinking about work while in the shower or running over my to do list in my head while trying to get to sleep, these all cause stress. The more I am connected to my body and how it feels in and with the moment I do not feel stressed, not a dot.

  24. I have a much better understanding of why when things come up in my body they are not there to be annoying or stop me from doing things but are an indication of how I am living an what areas I need to look at. It is amazing how much we can learn about ourselves from listening to our body, and you have shown Carmel how much we can change once we understand and embrace what is really going on in the body. Combining conventional Medicine with the understanding of the body that Universal Medicine offers is the way forward and one that is very much needed as we see our health services struggling to meet the demands of the many illnesses we have today.

  25. What I love about Universal Medicine is how the responsibility of our health is always brought back to us and has us look at how we ended up with a specific illness and disease, and that within the healing process we also have the support of the Universal Medicine practitioners and conventional medicine – who could ask for more.

  26. I wonder if that is what we are missing in medicine, the honesty of practitioners who will hold our hands and tell us we have the potential to turn some of the lifestyle illnesses around. To tell us in a way that supports us to know we can change our environment to better support the change as a return to a more natural way of living rather than another thing on our ‘to-do’ list.

  27. Now this is front page news, these types of stories just blow me away. The proof of how beneficial the work of Universal Medicine really is, is in the pudding or in this case, in the general public, ordinary people, like yourself, who are reaping the immense advantages of lifestyle change and energy shift that transforms life as you know it. The marriage of Western Medicine and Esoteric Medicine is a golden one and should be accessible everywhere.

  28. It makes perfect sense to combine western medicine with something that is complementary to medicine, and Universal Medicine therapies are very complementary to medicine.

  29. A great self-revelation to discover how it is our own choices that are responsible for the stress that we feel, and how through changing our choices we can help alleviate the stress we put ourselves through, allowing the body to take care of us through supporting it more deeply.

  30. An extraordinary and profound testament to the healing power of both western medicine and esoteric healing combined. I love that not only has your health transformed to better than before you were diagnosed but that the choices that you have made have transformed your entire life and the relationships within it. It is amazing to know of the power we have through choices made based on love and understanding

  31. The combination of conventional medicine and esoteric healing is incredible, with them both together you have the power to completely change your health around by seeking all the medical attention you need, whether it be surgery, or medication and then with esoteric medicine you are supported to look at your whole life and all your choices and what may have led to this so you can essentially reroute and rebuild your life so this doesn’t happen again, so a true healing can occur – I think that’s amazing.

  32. This is a remarkable turn-around Carmel, and yet what strikes me most, is how truly ‘healthy’ it actually is, to not only receive the amazing support our medical professionals can offer us, but to also go deeper in exploring what has been behind stresses and ill conditions in our bodies, for us.
    I know of no other organisation that offers what Universal Medicine does in this regard – that we may find such a deep understanding in life, not only of ourselves and the delicateness with which our own body and being is entwined, but of human life and its outplay.

    1. I agree Victoria, looking at the whole picture rather than pockets in isolation is the only way to see what is not working but also to see what is working and bring that same focus, dedication and love to all equally so there are no pockets left less!
