Lee Green

Wilson, South Australia

I have just read the article that your staff reporters have written on Mr Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine. Quite frankly I cannot see the connection between the by-line you claim ‘The North Coast’s Independent News’ and what has been so obviously regurgitated from recent news stories featured in the Sydney Morning Herald, the ABC news forum and the Northern Star.

Where is the true investigation and reportage that evidently no longer exists?

I have been attending workshops and lectures by Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine and am a father and husband. I manage three cafes and live what I regard a normal life. I take care of myself through loving choices, I feed into what my body requires to sustain it, I go to bed early to rest myself for the long work days I have that follow.

I seek healing when I feel to, to support me in a world that no longer seems to take care of itself but is always seeking outside for help; note the pressure on our health service keeps on rising.

My family is a loving support centre for us to deal with our days and have nothing but gratitude and love for Serge and the Universal Medicine team. They work with the utmost integrity for practice and client. A model of how we can potentially care for each other in our day to day lives.

The workshops I have attended with Universal Medicine have never stated that they can cure cancer and alike, what is presented is that we have a choice in how we choose to live our daily life which will support our bodies or not.

When did the newspapers and social media that now exist stop reporting truth?

When did we as a humanity stop demanding truth?

And when did you as a reporters decide that sensationalism was more important than the facts?

This is a shame as the responsibility you take as a reporting medium has evidently been sold out to grab a person’s attention and not present the facts.

I do hope that you take this opportunity to give people a true choice.
