My Experience with Conventional Medicine and Universal Medicine as a Breast Cancer Patient

by Ingrid Langenbruch, Ocean Shores, Australia

I am a student, client and friend of Universal Medicine (UM) and Serge Benhayon. Hearing about some rumours about Serge and UM – which sound like outright lies and misinterpretations – I would like to share the following with you:

I have lived for about 10 years with breast cancer; my 4th recurrence was at the end of 2011. Over the first 5 years – until about 2007 – I tried each and every natural and alternative way to heal myself. Having experienced two severe medical mistakes in my family in Germany and having studied natural healing and nutrition for years, I had had no trust or confidence in conventional medicine at all since I was a teenager (I am now 59).

The Body is Intelligent

by Dr Rachel Hall B.Ch.D (Uni Leeds), LDSRCS(Eng), MACNEM, Holistic Dentist, Brisbane, Australia

We traditionally are taught to think of the brain or the ‘head’ as being the intelligence of the body, communicating with the body and telling it what to do. Yet the body is in fact a massive network of nerve and energy pathways that communicate with one another, sending signals and instructions from one part of the body to another, cell by cell. Information travels to the brain from the body and from the body to the brain. We know that the brain sends signals to the body, but have you ever stopped to consider that your body may actually be communicating with YOU, sending you subtle messages and information for you to respond to?

Dentistry IS Stressful

by Dr Rachel Hall, B.Ch.D (Uni Leeds UK), LDSRCS(Eng), MACNEM, Dental Surgeon, Brisbane, Australia

It is true – being a dentist is stressful. Most patients dislike coming and are themselves stressed or anxious and this often comes across as rudeness, aggression and irrational behaviour. Everyone has high and often unrealistic expectations of what you can do with their teeth and hence the results you can achieve. No one seems to appreciate or understand how hard it is to fix a tooth when you are leaning over craning your neck, ruining your posture and straining your eyes just to be able to see it. Add to that battling a sea of saliva and tongues and lips that seem to develop superhuman strength as soon as you come anywhere near them and the process becomes near on impossible.

What does it mean to be a ‘holistic dentist’?

by Dr Rachel Hall B.Ch.D (Uni Leeds UK), LDSRCS(Eng), MACNEM, Dental Surgeon, Brisbane, Australia

I have worked as a holistic dentist for the last 12 years, and recently I have been pondering what it truly means to be a holistic dentist/practitioner. Is it purely a philosophy that influences how one works or views patients and their conditions or is it something more? Is it having a bag full of different ‘holistic healing modalities’ to use on clients? I have tried numerous ‘alternative’ modalities: homeopathy, NLP, EFT (emotional field therapy), kinesiology, bio-resonance therapy etc but I found that none of them offered my patients or me what I was looking for. In 2004 I went to my first heart chakra workshop, and it was here that I met Serge Benhayon and was introduced to the teachings of Universal Medicine. What Serge presented made so much sense; more sense than anything I had ever learnt or heard from other practitioners, science or medicine. As such, not once did I doubt what was being presented by Serge and Universal Medicine and I could feel how amazing the esoteric healing modalities were in my body. Through the esoteric teachings I now have a new appreciation for what it truly means to be a holistic dentist. I now realise it’s not about the bag of tricks or ‘alternative’ healing modalities I have acquired, it’s not about regurgitated information and knowledge that I’ve stored in my mind but instead I have discovered that it is about how I live every day, in every way.

The Body’s True Intelligence

by Kate Greenaway BAppSc(PT), Physiotherapist, Australia

In the early days of my work in Physiotherapy, I had a sense that the human body had its own natural intelligence. It was sensitive and responded clearly to any internal or external strain. I experimented a lot with my own body: I tested all the physio modes of treatment on myself first before I ever touched a client. I learned that if any technique was done in a pushing, forceful way, my body tightened in protection. It seemed like my body had its own sensor system to any sensation that was not gentle.

Life, Stress and Dental Problems

by Dr Rachel Hall B.Ch.D (Uni Leeds), LDSRCS(Eng), MACNEM, Dental Surgeon, Brisbane, Australia

 

“Stress is a reaction people have when excessive pressure or demands are placed upon them, and arises when an individual believes they are unable to cope.”

At one time or another, we’ve all dealt with the effects of chronic stress, from migraines and backaches to anxiety and depression. We all know that stress can impact the immune system – how often do we happen to get sick or catch a cold when we are stressed or run down? But what is not commonly understood is that stress and our response to it can also impact on the mouth, teeth, jaws and gums as well as our overall emotional and physical wellbeing. It is not possible to point to a particular dental problem and say it’s caused entirely by stress but like the rest of the body, the mouth can be affected.

Exercise for Health and Connection – from an Exercise Physiologist

by Dr Danielle Loveless, BBiomedSci, BExSci (Hons), PhD Ex Phys,
Accredited Exercise Physiologist

I have been working from the Universal Medicine clinic in the field of Exercise Physiology for the last 3-4 years. I am fully accredited and registered in the health care system and the majority of my work is in chronic disease and injury rehabilitation and exercise program support. In my time working from the clinic I have also been participating in Universal Medicine courses and workshops and embracing my own esoteric healing. Through the inspiration of Serge Benhayon I have begun to discover a way to exercise and work with my clients that is more supportive, nurturing and honouring for our bodies. This way has been developed from within myself, chosen by me, not taught or instructed by another, but completely inspired by a more gentle and loving way of living that I have begun to discover through Universal Medicine.

Sugar and Dental Decline

by Dr Rachel Hall B.Ch.D (Uni Leeds), LDSRCS(Eng), MACNEM, Dental Surgeon, Brisbane, Australia

I graduated from dental school having been told that due to advances in preventive care most of my career would be spent replacing failed fillings, doing routine maintenance and cosmetic work as the need to treat dental decay or perform root canal treatments and extractions would be greatly reduced. However, 20 years later I find that I am performing more extractions than ever before, doing more and more root canal procedures and dealing with rampant dental decay and gum disease in all ages. Anecdotally I feel that dental disease is actually on the increase and appears to be more widespread, severe and aggressive. Dental decay rates in children in Australia have increased progressively since the 1990s according to a study by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (1,2). It is well documented that poor socio-economic status and poor oral health are linked, and the statistics do speak for themselves (3). However, it is not just the financially disadvantaged who are presenting with increased prevalence of dental problems, it is happening across all levels of income and background.
Why is this? We all know that sugar consumption is linked to dental decay (4,5,6,7,8).

Responsibility and Dental Health

by Dr Rachel Hall B.Ch.D(Uni Leeds), LDSRCS(Eng), MACNEM, Dental Surgeon, Brisbane, Australia

Dentistry has always aimed to focus on prevention of oral disease rather than solely treatment alone. We all know that too much sugar causes tooth decay and that to maintain the health of our teeth and gums it is important to brush and floss regularly. Our role as dental professionals shifted from drillers and fillers to health care educators where we told our patients how to clean their teeth and advised them to cut down on sugar. However, this culture shift needs to be taken further as despite our efforts, rates of dental decay and oral health issues are again on the increase.

Letter Published in The Sun Herald 5th August

by Eunice Minford MA FRCS Ed. Consultant Surgeon

The following letter was published by the SunHerald in Australia on 5th August 2012, as “Medical Leader.”
The unedited, original version is below and note the sentence regarding personal responsibility for health has been removed, even though this was submitted in bold as shown to highlight its importance.

Dear Editor,

Recent articles in your paper made damning allegations about Serge Benhayon and his business. However, the overwhelming evidence of many professional, intelligent, highly qualified people is in favour of Benhayon and his work through Universal Medicine. It is astounding and insulting to us, our professions and our qualifications that our views may now be dismissed as the irrelevant ramblings of ‘brainwashed  devotees’ based on nothing more than the hearsay of the anonymous few with an axe to grind.
