Investigations into controversial Lismore-based healthcare business Universal Medicine by the Therapeutic Goods Administration have resulted in the business removing claims about supplements it provides from its website.

The TGA has said it will take no further action against the company.

The investigation followed complaints about the organisation from some former patients.

Speaking to Echonetdaily last month, company owner Serge Benhayon said the reports were based on ‘outrageous lies’ and allegations by disgruntled former partners of some of his female clients.

He issued a statement entitled ‘The facts and truths about Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine’, which said there had been a ‘smear campaign’ directed at him, his family and his business.

‘Allegations, which are being bandied as facts or truths, are nothing but complete distortions to utter lies,’ he said.

Mr Benhayon said he was being targeted by a small group of detractors and rejected claims that he tells students he can cure cancer.
