Universal Medicine’s idea of fighting back against our analysis of Serge Benhayon’s illness producing diet is to have their very own unaccredited dietician testify to how ‘amazing’ she feels. We wish she’d keep her unqualified feelings to herself.
I could always feel there was more to life – October 10, 2012, by Nicole Serafin, Dietician, Nutritionist, Tintenbar, Australia
I knew for myself from a very young age that something was not right. It always felt like something was missing but I could never quite put my finger on it…
Summarizing the first couple of hundred words: blah de blah, la la la, waffle waffle, fart fart, zzzz etc. etc. And then she gets to her poorly made point:
I began slowly changing my diet, feeling lighter, less bloated and more energised.
Uh, yah, a lot of people feel less bloated when they eat less. And by lighter do you mean light headed or just lightweight?
Then I looked at my sleep pattern which for me was the next natural step. Why, if I had more energy, would I want to ruin that by late nights, often fuelled by an alcoholic drink? So I began to cut out alcohol and started going to bed earlier, which just contributed to me feeling even more energised and amazing – this started to feel ‘normal’.
OH MY SERGE! STOP THE PRESSES!
I had completed training in dietetics and nutrition and the changes that I was making made sense; they were not a fleeting or radical claim being made by Universal Medicine but something that actually made a substantial difference to my wellbeing.
What training Nicole? You’re not accredited as a dietitian, I checked. You’re not registered as a nutritionist either, I checked that too. You’re not accredited in any profession that encompasses nutrition or dietetics, I checked those as well. You do however, advertise yourself as a chakra puncturist, which is a bastardized form of acupuncture we are lobbying to have made unlawful to practice, unless you are a registered acupuncturist or physiotherapist of which you are neither.
For instance, I knew that dairy products had been linked to sinus & congestion issues, as well as gluten creating a whole other realm of issues in the body; so for me, not only from a clinical perspective but also a commonsense point of view, it made sense.
Dairy is linked to sinus & congestion issues in whom? Can you provide a reference from current research? What issues does gluten create? Are you talking about an allergy or an intolerance? Are you qualified to diagnose either? Do you even know how to do that? Are you suggesting we should cut those from our own and our kids’ diets and risk nutrient deficiencies because it might cause sinus issues in some people? And are you saying that Serge has defined gluten and dairy as PRANIC! because they cause intolerances in some people? Isn’t that admitting the whole PRANIC! FIERY! scaremongering schtick is just hogwash after all? Or are you saying Serge too has some clandestine dietetics qualification tucked away that he’s too shy to tell us about? Or do you lot say one thing on your blogs and another thing inside your airless Esoteric bell jar? Do you have that much disdain for the public? Or is it just reserved for potential recruits?
Just by a few small adjustments and changes in my life I was able to feel a huge difference – a difference that I was not willing to compromise for anyone or anything.
Don’t we know it. You wouldn’t compromise your precious ‘feelings’ for the sake of the health of anyone, including UniMed students’ children. You’ll call yourself a dietician to stick up for Serge and his pathogenic diet, but you’re not offering one word of sensible, evidence based nutritional advice.
I started to honour my body and felt an amazing feeling of openness and willingness to look at whatever life sent my way, without the reaction of ‘why me?’
We’re wondering ‘why us?’
Why is it we are not taught at school that those feelings that we have are there for a reason and that they need to be honoured and not pushed aside or buried? We need to nurture our true potential – to trust that we are enough and that when we listen to our body it has the ability to tell us what is needed in every moment.
Because your body doesn’t have that ability, dear. That’s why we have education and sound, time tested, nutritional traditions. That’s why UniMed students are getting sick, because beloved Serge rejects all of that. As clueless as you are, you’d still be better off listening to your body than listening to Serge.
Making choices from what I felt to be true in my body has changed my lifestyle and brought a feeling of wellbeing that I did not have in the past. From this I have slowly addressed all aspects of my life, from self-care and expression to relationships; feeling what has been needed and making the appropriate changes from there.
Self-care. Yes, and to hell with anyone else who doesn’t worship Serge. Relationships? The only relationships hardened UniMedders have are attainment centred competition with other followers. You’ve frozen out everyone else.
I am grateful to Universal Medicine for all they have shared with me and many others, and can honestly say that for me it has been a life changing experience; not because of what they have told me to do, but because of what I have chosen to do. It has been a slow and ongoing unfolding; as one thing leads to another and as my awareness of my body and what it needs grows – so too do my choices.
Yep, you’ve chosen to be told what to do. Are you listening to the podcasts and reading Serge’s notes and books every day, Nicole? To the exclusion of pretty much everything else?
But hey, good for you, Nicole. Keep growing that awareness of your body, because your awareness of everything else, including the truth about Serge, is shot.
And stay away from sick people. You have no qualifications and you’re doing more harm than good.
