It took a life-threatening experience for “Olga” to break away from Universal Medicine’s hold. First hand accounts like hers are exactly what this unscrupulous organization and its propaganda mill are aggressively attempting to keep from the public.

It nearly killed her.
Cosmetic application for toddlers – ‘Advancing health and wellbeing of girls and women’
Commercial occult religion Universal Medicine is behind the Girl to Woman Festival, but don’t dare inform anyone. The organizers will trash you online and encourage people to report you to police. That’s what UM have done in the lead up to the event in Tenterfield NSW on 27 August 2017 – in response to legitimate concerns about the welfare of kids.
August 2016 I reported UK’s HM Revenue & Customs landed
rewarded our complaints about Universal Medicine’s sham UK charity with a big fat tax bill to Sound Foundation Community Care. Almost £400,000. Update August 2017: Either I misinterpreted the charity’s 2014-15 end of year accounts or UM are telling lies in official documents. According to the charity’s accounts, released in the last week or two, the charity’s VAT debt was incurred as part of the charity’s transfer from trust to an incorporated company. UM says the VAT was refunded. Strangely, in spite of me repeatedly asking the charity’s trustees to explain how a £378k VAT liability appeared on the charity’s accounts, they made no attempt to correct my mistaken interpretation. None. I’m happy to retract my statements from last year and apologize to readers for the misunderstanding. If there was one. Will we receive an explanation for the outstanding anomalies in the accounts? And we’re still left with the problem that literally anyone can register a charity in the UK and take advantage of charity laws for personal financial benefit.
