Medicine for Humanity

By Cherise Holt, Nurse, Australia

A group of health professionals gather at a conference with the purpose of sharing through research and experience, so as to educate and support each other in their common specialities of health and medicine. Professors, Doctors, Scientists and Nurses have travelled from around the country with special guests from across the world to contribute, communicate and impart knowledge from their experiences or simply to ascertain further understanding of the health issues and complications that are presented with their patients each day. I appreciated being here, as I understand the importance of science and medicine to our health and our wellbeing.

For me, the most interesting portion of the conference was the presented case studies. A patient’s disease symptoms were discussed (in a confidential and professional manner) so that colleagues can share from their own expertise to reach diagnosis and treatment options with the patients’ best health interests as the aim. Offered alongside the symptoms is a brief outline of their medical history, including any other illnesses, medications, family history, age, sex, marital status, (children), religion if applicable and whether they smoke cigarettes or drink alcohol. It was here that I couldn’t help but feel that something was missing, like I had a puzzle in front of me with many missing pieces. Although the ability to diagnose and manage the immediate symptoms could be made, the puzzle still felt incomplete.

Today conventional medicine and science is used to perform tests and diagnose the illnesses and diseases that present in our bodies. Our healthcare system works intensely to manage people’s symptoms, their treatment options and any subsequent side effects. It monitors the progression of disease and balances the involved risks and complications. A good outcome is a variable notion as the body’s response can be unpredictable and whilst symptoms can be managed for now the ideas of surgery, transplantation or mortality are undoubtedly fear-provoking in many patients. Statistics inform us that a number of diseases are on the rise, with increased complications and co-morbidities. How can this be, given that we live in an era with unprecedented knowledge of the human body? There must be more to our health and the way in which we see and practise medicine.

What if medicine was not just the solution to our ill health?

In the past few years I have been deeply inspired by the presentations of Serge Benhayon on the subject of medicine and have since begun to view the way that I live as my greatest form of medicine. This means that if I was to present to you my personal medical history it would not only state examples of current health as listed above but it must include everything and every way that I choose to live my whole life. With honesty and complete responsibility it would include the food that I eat but also the way in which I buy, prepare and eat such food, the way I connect to me and bring the quality that is naturally me to others, to work, the way I walk, speak, sleep, think, how I am with my body and any emotions that I hold on to …everything! Even as I write this I feel the enormity of what ‘everything’ actually means. I know I am by far not perfect with my way of living but there is no judgement on myself as this has been a grand revelation that has shown me just how far away I had chosen to become from my natural way of living.

What will be the future of our health in our humanity?

In the symposium I observed the support and discussion that my medical health colleagues shared. They have many years of training, knowledge and expertise behind them; but I also felt the sadness and overwhelm that was underlying and apparent to me. Our health profession is primarily run by people (members of our humanity) who seek to provide solutions and invent new medicines for the rest of our humanity; a solution to best support and heal another. But without the study of a human being as a whole – with the inclusion of one’s physical body, their way of living and the knowing of the quality that each human being naturally holds – the puzzle will remain incomplete. As a student of my own way of living I have gained much inspiration from studying Universal Medicine’s online audio presentations. Whilst it saddens me that conventional medicine and complementary medicine predominantly appear worlds apart, correspondingly I feel the grand opportunity and immense joy when I ponder on our future.

We as humanity deserve healthcare founded on the highest forms of integrity, where self-responsibility shapes an honest and deeply loving relationship with self and then with others. Humanity will gather in the field of medicine, not to heavily carry the responsibility of how other people live through their own choices, but by living in a way that inspires and reflects to our brothers our undeniable equality and the simplicity of true support.

  1. I almost have a sense of many involved in the medical field scrambling for band aid solutions for the rapidly escalating ill-health of humanity, but the way it is being done seems to focus on the parts of the body that are needing treatment and not the body and the person as a whole. I have come to know that the way I live in every moment has a huge part to play in my health and well-being. I am not just a sore foot or a sore back, I am a whole human being who has so many aspects to my life, and every single one of those aspects will have a part to play in how I am feeling right now.

  2. It might be worthwhile when presenting a case study to include both demographic data but also an impression of ‘what makes that person tick’ and to see if this is connected with the ailment.

  3. “Our health profession is primarily run by people (members of our humanity) who seek to provide solutions and invent new medicines for the rest of our humanity; a solution to best support and heal another” – this is such a humbling statement that reminds me that at the core of our being, there is the same essence that just loves. We often hear only about what is wrong with the system and forget a system is run by a group of people just like us, with their own dose of life to live.

  4. With all that has not worked to date with how we are living, the lifestyles we are choosing to embody, this alone is evidence enough that how we live is medicine. If how we currently live is not working as the fact is we are getting sicker as a humanity, then we need to look deeper into how we are living and why we are choosing the lifestyles that are making us ill, so as to understand the power and responsibility we all hold to live our true and vital potential.

  5. While the health profession does an amazing job in may ways, these ways are often short term solutions and not long-term healing. But now we have Serge Benhayon in our midst, an amazing man who is offering the missing pieces to the healing puzzle, a man who has no agenda but simply the heart-felt purpose of providing humanity the answers to its escalating ill-health problems. He totally supports Western medicine but at the same time knows there is more to be understood and that understanding comes from the teaching of the Ageless Wisdom and the study of Esoteric Medicine. Humanity is finally being offered the answers to so many burning questions, but the biggest question is – are we ready to listen?

  6. The thing is it is evident how someone is living by the quality of their health and the energy they move in. But we live and move as if no one can tell and we then pretend that we are doing better than we are – essentially lying to ourselves.

  7. “What if medicine was not just the solution to our ill health?” A great question Cherise. There is so much more for us to look at and take responsibility for when it comes to the state of our health.

  8. We must not forget that what we call medicine today has only been around a very short time compared to how long humanity exists. We are very fortunate to have what we have but at the same time it would be very unwise, ignorant and arrogant to throw overboard all that we had prior to this. We have for the longest time considered the body as a whole, the energetic aspect and the interconnectedness of all things as completely normal and part of what is true medicine.

  9. “How can this be, given that we live in an era with unprecedented knowledge of the human body? There must be more to our health and the way in which we see and practise medicine”. This is key Cherise as the way humanity’s health is right know should have us being seriously humbled and open to many more options than the narrow road we have gotten ourselves on to.

  10. Cherise a great reminder that all our choices have a reflection on our health, we either heal or harm ourselves through our everyday choices.

  11. We can no longer abdicate responsibility for how we are living our lives and expect those in healthcare to pick up the pieces. As you say we need to look at how we are living in every aspect of our lives and commit to bringing more transparency to the way we choose to live.

  12. How we choose to live our life is medicine – what food we eat, the exercise we do – or don’t do – and the how not just the what. Eating food if I’m angry will give me indigestion, but the same food eaten in loving company and with uplifting conversation has a completely different effect on the body.

  13. It is obvious to me that the majority of the medical system is struggling to find quick-fix solutions to the ill-health of the world but these solutions, in the main, are simply bandaids that will only temporarily cover up the issues while they continue to fester underneath waiting to burst out again. I love how you have looked at the health of each one of us as not just how we are feeling but how we live, what we eat and drink and how we are in relationship to those around us. Maybe if the medical profession expanded their views of what is true health to incorporate what you have shared they will slowly come to discover long-term answers instead of quick-fix solutions.

  14. What if we started from the premise that we deserved amazing health? I think our standards of what we accept as healthy are dropping lower and lower, to the point that if we don’t have a serious illness or a terminal disease then we are classifying ourselves as healthy, when we might be tired, or have a sore back or bloating or whatever, it’s like we live with these things on a daily basis like they’re normal – but do we not deserve true vitality?

  15. There is a huge weight of expectation placed on the medical profession to be able to fix the person in front of them; to come up with the best drug, the best surgical technique and the best on-going care. But there is definitely something missing in this medical equation and that is the responsibility for the level of care each of us brings to our lives. We may have a medical condition that needs healing but it is the way we live in each moment of our lives that is the key to the health of the body we take to the doctor. Self-responsibility is, to me, the missing piece of the medical equation.

  16. “Statistics inform us that a number of diseases are on the rise, with increased complications and co-morbidities. How can this be, given that we live in an era with unprecedented knowledge of the human body? There must be more to our health and the way in which we see and practise medicine.” A great point Cherise. Despite ever more money being poured into drugs and treatments today even the expected life span is reducing for the first time in ages. Why isn’t true prevention – in the form of life-style medicine being championed? Oh of course, there’s no money in it. Am I being cynical or is there some truth here?

  17. Where I live in Europe there is at least one pharmacy on every second or third street. At least it feels that way because they are so common! With such numbers there must be so much demand for medications. It makes me wonder whether we are generally sicker as a race than we care to realise.

  18. Such a beautiful sharing Cherise, the more we take responsibility for our own health and healing the more we reflect to humanity the possibility that there is another way to live that can support our health and well being.

    1. And that way has to be worth exploring as our current systems are sinking under the demands that are increasingly being put on them as the majority get sicker.

  19. It makes simple sense that if we have amazing medicine when it comes to the body and it’s physical and physiological aspects. Yet we keep getting sicker and increasingly so – then there is another aspect of the human being that needs medicine beyond what is currently offered. That other aspect I have found in Universal Medicine as it is medicine for the being while conventional supports the human.
