Belief in invisible energies, spirits and entities is an integral part of Universal Medicine’s lucrative undue influence on followers. A blog by one of the firm’s employees walks us through how the UniMed leader exploited the paranoia of a depressed and anxious high school boy to convert him into a loyal propagandist. A follow up by NHS surgeon, Eunice Minford, shows how the cult’s health professionals enable the scam.
UK’s HM Revenue & Customs has rewarded our complaints about Universal Medicine’s sham UK charity with a big fat tax bill to Sound Foundation Community Care. Almost £400,000.

The bogus healing claims for Esoteric Breast Massage are headed for examination by the Supreme Court, and last month its inventor, Serge Benhayon, posted a video defence of the modality on Vimeo.

In the recent McIntyre inheritance case, cult leader, Serge Benhayon ingratiated himself to $1.3M of a dying cancer patient’s estate, at the expense of her children, grandchildren, and disabled dependents. The blog Congratulations! You have cancer, posted within days of the news coverage exemplifies Benhayon’s morbid but highly lucrative Livingness swindle.

Today’s news reports the devastation of a family robbed of their rightful inheritance by a multi-millionaire predatory charlatan.

In this two part video series, Esther talks about the system of rewards and punishments that comprises Universal Medicine’s business model. In part one, she talks about profiting the deceptive bait and switch marketing, and how UM profits from generating fear and a therapy dependency. In part two, she talks about commitment and investment. Once financially embedded in UM, fear, peer pressure and the promise of spiritual and financial rewards and punishments make it difficult for doubters to leave.
Serge Benhayon’s minders sensibly make sure he makes few public statements. However, last year, News Ltd’s Jane Hansen emailed him questions regarding an investigation into the charity he founded, and his propaganda team proudly published the incoherent blather he issued in response. In his diatribe on cyberbullies and stalkers he didn’t answer a single question. When Jane Hansen contacted him again early last month, he made more effort, continuing his tradition of addressing enquiries with exuberant fibs.
