Serge Benhayon, Universal Medicine and Bridging Foods
The story of Bridging Foods – How the book came to be
How did this book begin, where did the name come from and what does Bridging Foods truly mean?
In June 2003 I had a life threatening illness, after surviving this I was introduced to a practitioner named Serge Benhayon through a friend. I listened to what Serge Benhayon presented to me in the Esoteric Healing session and felt that what had been presented supported me to make sense of my 'near death experience'. Within the gentle hands on Esoteric Healing session I reconnected to my true self and I felt my inner-most essence.
Serge Benhayon is the founder of Universal Medicine and a very well known practitioner of Esoteric Healing. He practices extensively on the East Coast of Australia from his clinic in Goonellabah and travels overseas twice a year to his European based clinic The Sound Training Centre (next to The Lighthouse) In Somerset UK.
I asked Nicole, a friend, to travel with me to Lennox Head NSW to participate in a Universal Medicine workshop in May 2004, as Serge Benhayon presents a number of workshops and courses every year. The Sacred Esoteric Healing Level One workshop gave us an opportunity to connect to ourselves, to have a sense of who we truly are and thus begin to understand that it is possible to know yourself from the inside out, from your inner-most. Nicole and I recognised that we had been living by looking at who we were from the outside in, from everything that the world teaches us and tells us.
From this experience Nicole and I were inspired to look more closely at how food affected our bodies, what was happening on the inside after we ate something and how did we truly feel?

Serge Benhayon talks about the energy of food. He does mention certain foods, like gluten and dairy, and the energetic affect they have on our physical body. He does not say what to or what not to eat but rather to feel how food makes you feel.
“Is it worth the body losing energy in digesting one thing, when it
could easily digest something much easier, faster and have more
energy in the process?” SB
Nicole and I collected recipes that would support our own choice to begin a gluten and dairy free way of eating. The end result, six years later, is Bridging Foods. With the title being suggested by Serge Benhayon and the overall book completely inspired by the teachings of Universal Medicine. So, Bridging Foods is as you would imagine a bridge, a cookbook; that presents you with a choice to eat gluten and dairy free.
The information and recipes within Bridging Foods allow you to explore your own food choices and how different food feels in your body. What you do or do not eat is now your choice. May the book serve to support you to make the food choices that bring greater harmony and vitality to you and your body.
