Universal Medicine cult leader, Serge Benhayon, programs followers to believe disease is punishment for failing to adhere to the oppressive moral code he calls the Livingness. In the following extracts and quotes from Universal Medicine’s ‘truth’ blogs, his followers, including medical professionals, express guilt for minor infractions, and their beliefs that cancer is deserved and disease is a blessing. Responses from fellow cult members reveal Benhayon’s success in emotionally neutering his followers to the point where they believe death is nothing to mourn.

Cancer is clearing, death is a healing

Damien Hirst, ‘For the Love of God’

Universal Medicine deceptively markets its healing services as complementary medicine when they are in truth body negative and life denying practices aimed at hastening death. Serge Benhayon’s puritanical magical thinking keeps followers in a state of paranoia and dread, where they believe minor emotional infractions are the cause of their illnesses and misfortunes. Writings on Universal Medicine’s propaganda sites on followers’ experience of cancer and their attitudes to death reveal existential confusion. The conflict instilled by Benhayon’s teachings sees them veering between self flagellation and grandiosity, consoling themselves with the belief they are being cleansed in preparation for an elevated rebirth.

Serge Benhayon’s magical thinking – developing disease is a moral choice

Universal Medicine’s specialists in pseudoscience take the meaningless premise that ‘everything is energy’ and extrapolate it into an Esoteric theory of disease causation where the human body reflects a person’s moral indiscretions, disease results from incorrect thoughts and behaviour, cancer is a blessing and the prevention of disease is secured by the ‘choice’ to join Serge Benhayon’s cult and pay big bucks to toe his puritanically perverse Livingness line.

Esoteric Healing® – health is out, death is in

Serge Benhayon’s ultimate Esoteric goal is an unceremonious shuffling off of this mortal coil for a disembodied existence as a divine and ‘soul-full’ body of light. Benhayon, the health service provider, is actively expediting the demise of his followers with his perilous brand of healing, and before they ‘dump their prana’ via a lonely, emotionless death, he makes sure he gets a cut of their temporal cash and assets. The Universal Medicine cult’s pessimistic negation of human life encourages an acceptance of misery that makes death look comparatively appealing – by design. The following quotes from its leader’s writings show how he brands competing complementary medicine modalities as evil, and renders the relief of symptoms and maintenance of health redundant.

The Esoteric diet – more lethal than ever

As Universal Medicine cult leader Serge Benhayon continues to pound his Esoteric pulpit on the evil energy of perfectly nutritious foods, we should all be alarmed to hear he’s imposed further restrictions on the Esoteric diet – better described as self-loving starvation. Meanwhile the Huffington Post continues to pay cult apologist Sarah Cloutier to promote a dangerous eating disorder under the guise of ‘food writing’. And I’m officially a troll.

Death Drive Part 2: Serge Benhayon & the cult doctors

Cult leader, Serge Benhayon is quoted referring to life energy as the root cause of ‘all ill conditions’, that our Soul has no need for a physical body, that health practices are a waste of energy on a body we will eventually not need, and that  death is a ‘healing’. He’s welcome to his beliefs, but we have a major problem when he establishes a large, highly profitable, international ‘healing’ organization around them, and uses covert hypnotic techniques to indoctrinate the unsuspecting into a drive toward death. Worse when doctors publicly participate, and worse again when AHPRA, the Australian Health Practitioners Regulatory Authority, fails to take regulatory action.

Death Drive Part 1: Serge Benhayon’s cult of death – the doctrine

Esoteric students believe they’re following a path of ‘innermost loving’ and ‘Soulfulness’, yet, analysis of the Universal Medicine cult leader’s writings reveal that Esoteric ‘healing’ is a euphemism for a drive toward death. The ‘glory’ of a UniMed death is marketed as a gateway to more distinguished reincarnations, as well as a ‘cleansing’ and finally a ‘healing’. But not before Serge extracts the maximum funds.
