Letter to the Medical Observer

by Steffen Messerschmidt, ND.

To Mr. Byron Kaye – The Medical Observer

Dear Byron,

Following up on our short phone conversation last week, and realising that you actually only asked whether I saw a GP in relation to a hand complaint and not the reasons as to why I did not need to see one, I would like to clarify a few things:

1. I have an extensive medical background. I originally trained in Conventional Medicine specialising in Holistic Sports Medicine, Orthopaedic problems & Rehabilitation. After that I studied Natural Medicine at the German Paracelsus College for Natural Medicine and became a Naturopathic Physician.

I also studied Nutrition and Orthomolecular Medicine under Prof. Dr. Bram van Dam at the SPT-Education – Education Institute for Sport, Physiotherapy and Training Science, AEP Academy Spain and the University of Lisbon, and obtained a Degree in Nutrition and Orthomolecular Medicine. For a period of 5 years I have also studied, worked and assisted Prof. Dr. Bram van Dam in the field of PNI (Psychoneuroimmunology) and Epigenetics.

My medical and scientific knowledge, and the knowledge of my own body, allowed me to deal with my condition. I was clearly able to determine whether or not I needed to seek the help and support of a GP or any other health practitioner. I strongly felt I have the ability to diagnose and treat myself.

2. Just in case you are not familiar with the Science of PNI I have added a definition:
‘Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) is the study of the interaction between psychological processes and the nervous and immune systems of the human body. PNI takes an interdisciplinary approach, incorporating psychology, neuroscience, immunology, physiology, pharmacology, molecular biology, psychiatry, behavioural medicine, infectious diseases, endocrinology, and rheumatology.

The main interests of PNI are the interactions between the nervous and immune systems and the relationships between mental processes and health. PNI studies, among other things, the physiological functioning of the neuroimmune system in health and disease; disorders of the neuroimmune system (autoimmune diseases, hypersensitivities, immune deficiency) and the physical, chemical and physiological characteristics of the components of the neuroimmune system in vitro, in situ, and in vivo.’

3. At one of the workshops, Serge recommended that I see another medical practitioner for support. I assured him that it wasn’t needed and that I would be able to deal with the condition myself.

4. I met Serge Benhayon a few years ago and I began to discuss with him my own medical background and the work that I was doing at the time. I soon discovered in Serge a level of integrity and love for humanity that I had never seen before. In terms of what he was saying, it became clear that Serge basically “walks the talk”, which I had never seen even when I was lecturing internationally together with Professors, Doctors and other health care professionals. Other professionals and “experts” would talk about healthy lifestyle in the congress and then privately eat the things they told their students not to eat. They would go out and party, smoke and drink, or have unhealthy relationships, abuse their status as lecturers, and so on.

5. For a long time I was the only one out of many of my colleagues who did not drink alcohol, did not eat or drink unhealthy food, who exercised regularly and had a healthy sleeping rhythm. However, Serge represented a level of integrity and self love that went much deeper.

6. Most importantly, what Serge presented and lived was the missing link for me as conventional medicine, natural medicine, psychology, nutrition, Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) and even the science of Epigenetics did not cover all of the problems I would see in clinic on a daily base. What Serge presented made sense to me, even with my academic background. Notably, it was not the stuff of the ‘Spiritual New Age’ nor was he “off with the fairies”.

7. As I shared with you during our brief conversation, my meeting with Serge Benhayon that started my clearing was as two friends and fellow practitioners coming together, sharing our experiences and observing what therapies do on a physical, emotional and energetic level.

8. You mentioned C3 deficiency on the phone, but all the tests I ran would have not come back clear if anything like a C3 deficiency would have been the cause. If those theories you presented were accurate then my body markers would have shown elevated levels of liver enzymes and other inflammatory and immune responses. Also being a physically fit man, C1q or C3 esterase deficiency do not apply: consider that I have no lifelong history of allergies, infections etc. If presented, C3 is depressed; IgE/white cell count/inflammatory markers of ESR and C-reactive protein (CRP) along with platelet counts are typically up.
At no stage did I have any swelling in my airways.

9. The fact that I was also not exposed to any toxins, and only the areas affected on my hands where I held the tools I was working with at the time, clearly indicated to me that there was nothing physically wrong with me and my body was only clearing the energy of the modalities and remedies I had been working with. As you can see in the presentation this clearing went on for a period of 3 months until my hands returned back to normal.

10. All my knowledge and experience of both conventional and natural medicine could not explain scientifically why I was clearing in this way. The only explanation was energetic. The great thing about all of this was that the study with Serge and Universal Medicine gave me the possibility to feel on a deeper level what actually was going on in my body.

11. Upon realising that my practice of certain modalities and remedies had harmed my body, I was not about to continue to practise with those tools and so-called remedies on anyone else if there was the slightest chance that they could harm or bury issues in my patients. I made the responsible choice to discard and burn all the items related with those therapies.

12. After discarding this I am still practising and the main things that changed is that I have a much higher vitality then I ever had and am able to apply a much deeper form of integrity and care on a daily base to my patients.

Overall I must say that clearly I am an awesome human being and an amazing practitioner as I was able to overcome those 4 diseases without any of the help you suggested – three of them being life threatening. 🙂
Obviously, I was only able to do that with my knowledge and understanding from modern, natural and esoteric medicine.

This clearly explains my position and I trust that you will report the facts with honesty and integrity.

Yours Sincerely,
Steffen Messerschmidt, ND

  1. The pictures and account I heard of the clearing from Steffan’s body was miraculous but at the same time simply what our body does. It is so intelligent and designed to be run in a very specific way and with a specific source of fuel. Anything that gets in the way of that needs to cleared out. This process is happening all the time to all of us. We just conveniently see the twisted ankle or head cold as accidental, so we don’t have to feel how we have been living that is abusive to our bodes natural way.

  2. An in depth explanation of the benefits of esoteric medicine complementing western medicine. My experience has also been that this is the missing link and that Serge Benhayon filled in the blanks I had in relation to why we are not living with the wellness that is our natural way. It would be advantageous to humanity for Universal Medicine to be reported with the full facts of its amazing wisdom, brought to the light from our current dark health state.

  3. A Beautiful example of the Esoteric and Western Medicine providing an holistic approach to what truly goes on in our bodies. I appreciate you sharing this Steffan

  4. Your story is remarkable Steffen especially what had happened with your hands when you started to let go of the old so-called ‘healing’ techniques. Your case is worthy of a deep scientific study and for me is quite plainly a miracle. But more than that, it makes a very clear statement about the true power of the Esoteric Healing modalities offered by Universal Medicine.

  5. Thank you Steffen for taking the time to explain the detail you cannot get to on the phone. The Psychoneuroimmunology you have studied sounds like a very holistic approach. In your point 6 you mention all of your training study and experience did not cover all of the problems you would see in clinic on a daily basis, and that what you had learnt from Serge Benhayon about Universal medicine was the missing link with conventional Medicine.

  6. Thanks Steffen for presenting the facts , the clarity you have offered here cannot be disputed and for person to do so, they would have to lie.

  7. Steffen, your knowledge of the physical body from a medical perspective is clearly solid. That, combined with your energetic understanding of the body, makes absolute sense why you wouldn’t feel you needed to seek external medical advice. Thank you for your clear, honest account of the situation that was at hand (excuse the pun!).

  8. Steffen It is truly shocking how low the media can go, your trueful factual account of what happend exposes the baseless lies and the evil web the media have spun. Thank you for this much needed honest account.

  9. I really appreciate how someone with extensive science based knowledge underpinning an immense amount of experience can still acknowledge that there is an energetic cause to illness and disease. It is this form of free thinking, or perhaps heartfelt thinking, that will advance the true gifts of modern medicine into the 21st century, not the kind of thinking which champions exclusivity of the scientific approach or outright cynicism about our capacity to heal ourselves and that there is a healing source within us.

  10. Well done Steffen for writing your perspective and views with clarity and honesty. This was such an incredible story for anyone who chose to really look at it to report. A significant missed opportunity by the media.

  11. Wow Steffen…I knew your CV was long, but…wow…even more extensive than I thought. It’s admirable that you stood equally with Serge Benayon when you met him and allowed the opportunity for more learning and never assumed you knew it all already.

  12. Thank you Steffen for sharing your story, showing us that with all your previous training there was still a missing link and that you found it in the teachings of one man, Serge Benhayon who walked the talk.

  13. I agree Suse. Disposing of instruments and modalities that Steffen knows not to be right for himself and his clients is very affirming and truly honouring of humanity.

  14. I can feel the connection and care you have for your body Steffen. It is also refreshing to see the absolute integrity in your ceasing of modalities that you discovered to be harmful even though you had built a successful practice based on these.

  15. I am not personally aware of the background to this letter, but what I read and hear is someone standing up in full for their truth and supporting it with their lived experience. Thanks Steffen.

  16. A great letter Steffen, to a man who chose to misrepresent you abominably in the press. He worked very hard to portray Serge Benhayon as irresponsible using you as the example. Highly unethical on his part.

    It is wonderful that you published this letter so as to have its clear refutation and the true story on the public record

  17. Absolutely awesome, Steffen. Just as you are as a person and a practitioner. Written with true authority and great clarity. I loved that you claimed in full the truth of your own knowing and experience. Thank you!

  18. Steffen, you stand as an authority indeed, both on a temporal level with your medical background as well as your life experiences as such – this cannot be ignored. And who you are is far grander than this too -Awesome!

  19. A brilliant letter, thank you Steffen. You are an awesome human being and an amazing practitioner, a wonderful example to other practitioners and an awesome inspiration to us all.

  20. It so great to see Steffen being so open and accountable for his actions in every way. I’m sure this a a rarity. What a shame such openness can be treated with suspicion … or …. is such honesty and transparency simply too threatening to those that want to keep part of their lives a secret and not expose the hyprocisy that goes on day in, day out?

  21. You not only demonstrate an example par excellence of integrity but showcase the future of medicine – an all-encompassing way that considers all aspects of what makes us the being that we are.

    1. Yes Alex, and this combined picture from modern medicine and complementary medicine is what will truly change the medical system and the medical conditions all over the world, as it deals with what is on the surface AND with what is lying underneath.

  22. You give here an example par excellence of true integrity and present an all-encompassing approach to what medicine can be when all aspects of what makes us the being that we are are unified. It is the way to go for the medicine of the future.

  23. Yes indeed you are an ‘awesome human being and practitioner “…as I was able to overcome those 4 diseases without any of the help you suggested – three of them being life threatening. 🙂 Obviously, I was only able to do that with my knowledge and understanding from modern, natural and esoteric medicine.” Brilliant letter, the proof is there, energy a scientifically proven part of life is there and we get to choose how we live with it and express it.

  24. How common is it that any person working in the health care industry -Conventional or Complementary, still do not walk the talk? How many, with all of their experience and knowledge of the body and health, still drink alcohol, eat or drink unhealthy food and even smoke and take recreational drugs? How many properly deal with stress, exercise regularly and have a healthy sleeping rhythm?
    Imagine if all these people applied, in full, their knowledge of the body and healthcare to their life – how would that affect them and the way they are with others? This is the difference that many see in Serge Benhayon, he has made the commitment to do that for himself, and naturally holds others in the same level of integrity and self love that he has developed and in doing so he inspires another level of health care. He actually walks the talk, and has inspired many others to do the same and is making a huge difference to their health care and what they are able to offer others.
    Byron Kaye; The Medical Observer, this is absolutely something to take note of, and to consider and truly investigate when considering what is going on through out the world in relation to health, illness and disease…

  25. A factual and well written piece showing the level of clearing our bodies can bring us, based on how we have chosen to live and whilst Steffan is medically trained and knew what his body was clearing, the advice from Serge Benhayon was still to consult another medical practitioner showing his support for western medicine. Thank you for sharing your experience with us Steffan.

  26. A powerful letter expressing the whole truth with the understanding of the physical and energetic causes of illness and disease.

  27. I love this blog for 2 reasons. #1I am still smiling about the last paragraph where you confirm how awesome you are…because it’s true and sounds bada** to finish a letter like that. Then #2 for the totall rounded response and explanation you offer. It’s like here are the medical facts and here are all the gaps filled in…it’s a “complete” understanding offered up. Imagine if you could visit all medical practitioners and get the true medical diagnosis + the true energetic diagnosis. You would never walk away with unanswered oddities…you would always come away with as in your article a new depth of understanding within yourself, quite possible a new depth of love for yourself. This is what’s on offer with Universal Medicine and it’s happening.

  28. Wow, an amazing story with the truth of true healing, thank you. With the power, knowledge and authority you have, you could run courses to help GP’s cope with their case loads of patients whom they struggle with.

  29. Stephan I really appreciate that with all of your medical training you had the humbleness to be able to lay down that which you could see was no longer beneficial for your clients.

    1. I agree with Shami, Steffan. I am truly humbled in the way you have gone beyond factual knowledge and allowed your body’s own innate knowledge to heal.

      1. hear hear I find it extraordinary that Steffan was able to go through this process of deep healing with such a level of trust in his own wisdom that he could follow his heart.

  30. You claim in your last paragraph Steffen that you were able to overcome 3 life threatening diseases without any of the help suggested by Byron Kaye from The Medical Observer. This is a a solid testimony that cannot be ignored. You state that you were able to do that from your own knowledge and understanding of modern, natural and esoteric medicine.
    Now that confirms clearly that working together with all the different approaches can work and Yes you are an awesome human being.
    There is something here for us all to open up to – the possibility that what Serge Benhayon is presenting with Esoteric Medicine could be the missing link that could save our medical systems from bankruptcy. Something to consider and this blog site is dedicated to this and is pro modern medicine.

  31. Thanks for writing this letter Steffen. It’s awesome to see that a man with all of your qualifications was still open to hearing that there might be something more than conventional medicine and that you had the integrity to stop practising the modalities that you felt were harming yourself and others. Very inspiring.

  32. Having re-read your letter again Steffen it cannot be ignored that you have extensive medical studies and experience to qualify talking about your subject with authority. The fact you are part of a 5 year study back in 2012 about Psychoneuroimmunology PNI
    and Epigenetics which now have a place in science states to me that you sure know what you are talking about.
    Your own personal experience of healing and clearing your own hand complaint with the missing link as you call it from the teachings of Serge Benhayon confirms that this was needed and you say clearly in your letter it is not airy fairy or spiritual new age.
    The question is why are we the general public not demanding more people like you to lead our medical world?
    Who is in authority and has the final say in medical journals?
    Is it not time to ask those like you who do have consistent vitality levels and are choosing another way so we could all benefit?
    If things change does that mean the current power given to the medics would be different?
    With illness and dis-ease escalating and multiple diagnosis of symptoms rising, is it time to find another way to live so we can stop bankrupting our medical systems.
    Why are the media not focusing on illness and dis-ease as the number one headline every day and using their industry as a platform for real change?

    1. Absolutely love the questions here Bina – particularly ‘Why are the media not focusing on illness and dis-ease as the number one headline every day and using their industry as a platform for real change?’ And, I would add, why are the media not looking at their true purpose – a true way to serve humanity – with truth, facts, raising questions that haven’t been asked, raising things that need attention from us all, and, sharing stories like the many on this blog site where people have made sustainable changes in their lives?

  33. Steffen I remember seeing for myself the catalogue of stages of clearing that your ‘hands’ went through. That you managed to remain calm and steady, connected to yourself, through this process and come out the other side more than ok, shows the pure knowing you felt. The level of support you had along the way from Serge Benhayon, and the level of trust in yourself and all that you felt only confirms the process. Others may not understand, it may seem nonsensical, but that does not mean it is not true.

    1. I agree Jenny. I was amazed when I saw the photographs of Steffen’s body clearing the ill effects of the healing modality he used to practice. Immediately I knew that it was true as I have dabbled with various ‘healing’ modalities and as I’ve connected to a purity within myself through the support of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine practitioners, I have felt the harming effects these have had on my body.

  34. Beautiful Steffen you say it how it is. I can feel the strength and love in your words. I have seen the wonderful work you are doing with your clients and it is truly inspiring.

    1. True Samantha, Steffen’s transformation and what he offers his clients has been phenomenal.

  35. 2 years on Steffan and how brilliant to hear of healing that your clients are experiencing. So thank you for the courage of your convictions, staying with what you felt to be true, I feel we have ALL benefitted

  36. Thanks Steffen for sharing, I can feel how you clearly felt and allowed what needed to happen in your body and supported it along the way. Great marker for us all.

  37. This is an Amazing letter Steffen and I can feel your claim here in full what you are saying and standing by your Truth with the facts you have presented.
    To give our power away to the medicial world when there is more – something I learnt when I came across Serge Benhayon and the teachings of Universal Medicine called Esoteric Medicine. It is simple and it makes sense but above all we can get the confirmation from our own body which I know to be the marker of All Truth.
    Deep thanks for sharing this letter – everyone needs to read this.

    1. Agreed Bina, we certainly give our power away to the medical world to fix our problems, however while these same medical professionals who do the things they tell people not to do, as Steffen has presented, “Serge basically ‘walks the talk'” – he presents from his livingness, no more and no less, so what you see is the real deal. There is not an ounce of ‘do as I say not as I do’ in Universal Medicine, just lived experiences that work, shared with a large group of people

    2. I agree Bina – this letter is inspirational in the way Steffen claims the authority he knows – the truth he has felt and lived. The letter is also inspirational in the depth of precision, and the care and attention to detail. We are truly blessed to have Serge Benhayon, and Universal Medicine here at this time. There are 1000’s more testimonies like Steffen’s – e.g. like those on this blog that share the many many inspirational stories of those who have been inspired by Serge Benhayon to make changes in their own lives.

      1. I agree Jane that there are 1000’s more testimonies like Steffen’s here and this is one of the blog sites confirming this. I know from my own experience that Serge Benhayon helped me through the worst time of my life – I almost died as my blood count was so low and at the time the medics had not diagnosed my tumour. Serge Benhayon was and still is very pro-medicine and this is what helped me the most because prior to that I had become very new age spiritual and was only ever seeking alternative medicine and that is when I got even more sick.
        What the teachings of Serge Benhayon have given me personally is an awareness of why this may have happened and to look at my choices. This changed everything and I have never looked back. I am a living science that changing the way you live based on the teachings of Universal Medicine can lead to more inspirational real life stories that the media could tell the world.

    3. Absolutely Bina, it is a great read that should be shared, and everyone would benefit from the understanding of how we can work together with Universal Medicine and Conventional Medicine when required. Thank you Steffen!

  38. It was a humbling and inspiring experience to witness and be of close support on Steffen’s amazing unfolding healing process.

    With all this false accusations, attacks and baseless reporting from the media and MO against UniMed happening, I now wonder, what if Steffen had followed Serge’s and my recommendations to seek medical advice instead of standing firmly in his free will and claiming what he felt was true, from his background and understanding of his own body?

    During Steffen’s detoxing phase, I assisted him with Esoteric Chakra-puncture and Hands on Healing treatments and what I saw and felt, was not only a progressive detox on the physical level but also a very noticeable change on his way of being, a tender and more caring version of his own essence came to live and reflected in the quality of his own treatments.

    Is it possible that we have here, hundreds of amazing cases to be studied by Western Medicine and/or Scientists? Please see https://medicineandsergebenhayon.com/. rather than accusing this amazing organization to be a cult?

    How could it be scientifically attainable, to experience that in a body that is today and was still vital throughout the process? (apart of one day) which three medical specialists comments, it was a life threading condition.

    I know and agree with Universal Medicine / Esoteric Medicine teachings in never ever claiming to be the only answer or the cure, in fact it is on multiple records how Serge is pro-medicine.
    But with the amount of multi-symptomatic cases in today’s society it is really common sense that Esoteric Medicine is the missing link for Western Medicine.

  39. Thank you very much Steffen for your honesty, insights and clear,concise explanation.
    Your experiences clearly reflect your incredible growth as a loving human being and the positive benefits of being a student of Universal Medicine, which has touched your life and therefore the lives of many others.
    I feel inspired by your story.
    yours sincerely,

    Elizabeth Trenear
