Letter to Medical Observer by Neonatal Paediatrician

by Dr Howard Chilton, MBBS. MRCP(UK). DCH. Consultant Neonatologist & Paediatrician, Royal Hospital for Women and Prince of Wales Private Hospital, Former Director of Newborn Care, Royal Hospital for Women, Randwick, NSW 2031.

To Medical Observer.


As a Neonatal Paediatrician my professional life has been based on evidence-based medicine, pathology, and applied physiology. I am also author of a few (evidence-based) books on parenting. But it has always been clear to me that there is more to the prevention of ill-health, and the practice of medicine, than just these modalities.

For that reason I appreciate and respect Mr Benhayon’s and Universal Medicine’s take on the need for people to take responsibility for their own health and the trajectory of their life.

Benhayon is a kind, honest and caring teacher of enormous integrity. How sad that there seems to be a propaganda war against such a deeply principled man and his equally principled (and rigorously regulated) organisation. Continue reading “Letter to Medical Observer by Neonatal Paediatrician”

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. Continue reading “Letter Published in The Sun Herald 5th August”

Medicine and Universal Medicine Working Together

by Denise Morden

12 years ago I was diagnosed with a rare genetic lung disease by a Sydney lung physician who advised me to

“contact a thoracic surgeon at St. Vincent’s because you’ll  need a lung transplant within 5 to 10 years.” Shocked and angry by the way the diagnosis was delivered I decided to change my lifestyle. Continue reading “Medicine and Universal Medicine Working Together”
