Universal Medicine
Leader Serge Benhayon

Universal Medicine (UM) is an alternative medicine[1] and self proclaimed religious organisation providing "esoteric healing"[2][3] products, music, publications, workshops and courses. None of the healing modalities are evidence-based or have been proven effective by scientific research.[4] It is headed by its founder Serge Benhayon, a former bankrupt[5] tennis coach from Maroubra who has no medical qualifications.[4][6] The organization is principally located in Goonellabah and Wollongbar, NSW, Australia. Its UK headquarters is known as "The Lighthouse" and is situated in Tytherington, near Frome, Somerset, England.
