Sexual exploitation is a hallmark of cults, and cult leader Serge Benhayon’s aberrant teachings and practices are integral to the profitability of Universal Medicine and its main recruitment arm, Esoteric Women’s Health Pty Ltd. Disturbing teachings on the disease causing ‘energy’ of normal sexuality, the karma of sexual violence and puritanical prescriptions for emotionless love making sit uneasily with in house assessments of ‘sexiness’. A culture of personal boundary transgressions, including inappropriate touching highlights the sexual confusion among devotees. The manipulation is essential to UniMed’s lucrative death drive; psychologically destabilizing followers, fracturing intimate relationships with non followers, and inducing dependency on dubious occult therapies
Late last year NSW State Parliament’s Health Care Complaints Committee called for public submissions to an inquiry into the promotion of false and misleading health related information and practices. The aim was to examine the government’s response to organizations providing health services and misleading members of the public in ways that pose a risk to their health. The Universal Medicine cult’s hierarchy of investors, including the cult doctors, made two submissions proudly advertising their persistent delivery of false and misleading information, luring vulnerable patients into their commerce in harm.

The malignant Universal Medicine cult has grown significantly since medical professionals joined its ranks as recruiters. Cult leader, Serge Benhayon, has zero qualifications, yet the cult doctors endorse his inappropriate touching, idiotic pseudoscience and magical thinking. It’s a breach of the Hippocratic oath, and the professional codes of conduct that are supposed to protect the vulnerable from exploitation. Seeing they are publicly promoting Universal Medicine, we think they should publicly answer our questions. Updated with audio recordings of Benhayon’s toxic teachings – bottom of page.
Next month, Esoteric Women’s Health will run a ‘free’ one day retreat for breast cancer patients at Lismore City Hall. It will be conducted by GP and cancer survivor, Dr Jane Barker, nurse, Sharon Gavioli and two more innocuous looking cultists. As usual, the publicity for the event is a pink and flowery deception – with no hint of Serge Benhayon’s contribution of pseudoscience, sexism and toxic magical thinking.
In this 20 minute promotional video ‘Healing Chronic Pain’, psychologist Brendan Mooney tells how his journey to find pain relief delivered him into the clutches of New Age charlatan, Serge Benhayon. The eventual pain relief was unrelated to Serge’s meddling, in spite of cult stalwart, Dr Rachel Hall calling it ‘a miracle’. Esoteric healing merely succeeded in transforming Mooney into a vocal cultist, willing to breach his professional codes of conduct to promote the Universal Medicine business.
In its February 7 edition, Britain’s top selling current affairs magazine, Private Eye, reported on the NHS promoting the Universal Medicine cult and its sham charity, the Sound Foundation, at a ‘Self Care Forum’ event at UM’s UK headquarters, the Lighthouse in Frome, Somerset.
And while National Health Service employee, Sound Foundation trustee, and former UM UK company director, Jane Keep, managed to dodge the Private Eye magnifying glass, she hasn’t escaped ours.
Universal Medicine cult leader Serge Benhayon’s public lies are now so numerous they’ll soon take up their own dedicated blog page. They’re also so audacious Benhayon has extended his dishonesty to making false statements to regulatory authorities, which is an offence under state and federal laws. A decision letter from the NSW Health Care Complaints Commission about Benhayon teaching inappropriate touching at Esoteric Healing Workshops states that Benhayon has a current working with children’s certificate. A check with the Office of the Child Guardian reveals he has not. [Correction: subsequent checks have shown he gained or renewed the check on January 19, valid until 2019] But that is only one of several false statements made to the regulator by Serge and now Miranda Benhayon.
Universal Medicine followers will easily recognize the statements as false, but will they persist in believing in their guru’s utmost integrity? And more importantly, what excuses will the HCCC make this time for failing to adequately investigate and failing to act?
