Health is the perfect balance among the physical, mental-emotional and spiritual bodies of an individual. Various symptoms are manifestations of disharmony of these bodies. Holistic medical consultation with our physicians helps identify the root cause of these health challenges. Mental-emotional assessments, as well as comprehensive plan of management, are integrated in the consultation.
Nutritional Microscopy analyses the live blood cell through the use of a phase-contrast microscope. This procedure identifies a patient’s current state of health at the cellular level.
A drop of blood is studied under a special microscope. This gives a real-time visual representation of a patient’s nutritional status and blood condition to encourage him/her to adopt a healthier diet/ lifestyle.
The capillaries show the amount of oxygen reaching the cells. Oxygen in the body is a function of vitality.
Those who lack exercise or with usual cold hands and feet will be treated to a visual proof of the reason for their symptoms. The length and direction of the capillaries give a picture of the current state of health. A drop of oil is placed on the ring finger of your left hand; the finger is then placed under a special microscope to view the capillaries.
The energetic lines that run throughout our body are known as meridians or nadis. There are approximately 72,000 nadis according to ancient healing medicine books and they interconnect with each other and form energy centers. Major energy centers are the seven chakras along our spinal cord while minor energy centers are located in the palms and soles. They can also be used as pressure points to enhance the flow of energy.
DMS is a diagnostic tool that measures the energy flow on certain meridians, allowing us to identify which organs are vulnerable, thus aids us in designing a plan on how to strengthen the particular organ system and keep our energetic bodies in balance.
Colon hydrotherapy removes toxic wastes that have accumulated and hardened in the colon through gentle warm water irrigation. This is ideal for those with constipation, migraine and severe acne and generally those with unhealthy eating habits and digestive problems.
Two methods are offered: Colema and Colonics. Colema is an open system while Colonics is a closed system.
Ingredients tailored to the needs of the patients are incorporated in colema:
Natural zeolite forms where volcanic and ash layers react with alkaline ground water. This is known to have been deposited over periods ranging from thousands to millions of years in shallow marine basins. Zeolite has a special structure that efficiently traps bacteria, virus, chemical residues and toxins from the body, making it a powerful detoxifier.
Fulvic and humic substances are natural ionic molecules considered as one of the important breakthroughs in the prevention and reversal of diseases.
These are created by microbial activity at the roots of plants which dissolve soil minerals to organic and bio available minerals. Dubbed as “intelligent” molecules in many scientific researches, these finds and prioritizes the parts of the body that needs the most.
Colonics is done aided by a machine. Warm water is introduced with gentle pressure, to irrigate the colon. When the feeling of movement is reached the machine is released and the waste is allowed to flow out of the tube.

“Hara” or the belly area is considered to be the vital center of man. Therefore our vitality roots from the hara, our energetic core. A good hara represents good health and grounded strength.
Focusing on the abdominal area is a great way to enhance and develop a strong hara.
On the physical level, it will enhance better function of the colon by helping remove excessive gas in the belly and loosen stagnant waste that causes constipation and other chronic health conditions including diabetes.
On the energetic level, clearing it of toxins will also bring about cleansing of negative emotions residing as a cellular memory in the body. This is especially helpful for those with history of swallowing the energetic lump in the throat which one experiences when one wants to speak up but couldn’t. This energetic lump creates pressure in the belly and may later turn into tumors like myoma if not addressed.
As a result, it helps relieve stress, tensions, muscles cramps, gas pains and other abdominal discomforts. This massage will help improve your focus on grounding your gut intuition and your digestive functions.
Corresponding SPA Treatment: Stimulating Treatment
The nutrients we take in by mouth get distributed throughout the body. The colon does not receive much because of two things. The large intestinal walls are blocked by encrusted materials and by virtue of the body’s tendency to prioritize nutrition distribution to other vital organs. Rectal infusion therapy is ideal after colon cleansing.
Wheatgrass is used as herbal medicine because of its therapeutic and nutritional properties: high in chlorophyll & organic iron for blood health, one of the richest sources of Vitamin A & C and contains assimilated vitamin B which is proven to combat cancer cells.
Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis) is known to have healing properties for the digestive tract. It helps to coat and protect the digestive mucosa, hence improving ulcers and irritable bowel syndromes & ulcerative colitis. The sap of this plant is a very strong cathartic, and was historically used by physicians for “cleansing the body.”
The 4 to 8 oz of wheatgrass or aloe vera is infused through the rectum via a rubberized catheter as medically indicated. This procedure ensures that the large intestinal wall is nourished and able to receive abundant nutrients.

The liver is the main detoxifying organ of the body. Liver health is fundamental to the digestive process, removing toxins in the body, environmental pollutants, residues of an unhealthy diet and an abusive lifestyle.
Liver cleansing will give you a healthy boost, it will also address fatty liver, cholesterol problems and help the body get rid of gallstones.
This treatment requires a Holistic Medical Consultation and is conducted during a Prevention, Recovery or Medical Detox Retreat. Liver and gallbladder ultrasound for the past 3 months prior to the liver cleanse is imperative.
A gentle yet potent form of nurturing for the liver using herbs such as yarrow or amplaya (bitter gourd) leaves. The leaves are applied as a warm compress over the right upper abdomen (liver area) for greater absorption and as additional soothing warmth for liver. Compresses are very relaxing and may aid in sleeping.
Specific herbs and warmed special oil are used to soothe the kidneys and adrenals. Traditional Chinese medicine speaks of kidney jing or the prenatal essence. It is the definite amount of energy for an individual’s lifetime. Those who live an abusive lifestyle of late nights and greasy foods tend to use up the kidney jing and succumb to accelerated aging.
Kidney Compress is ideal for those with chronic fatigue syndrome, adrenal insufficiency, those who feel lethargic or burnt-out, any kidney diagnosis or generally those who want more vitality and preserve youthfulness.
This is a gentle warmed oil compress with herbs prescribed by the doctors depending on the specific belly concern. A series of belly compress will afford lasting relief and resolution of dysmenorrhea or chronic gas pains. A special herb is used to also address poor appetite especially among children. Alternately, using a different herb, those with too much appetite will also benefit from this. Belly compress is also used in cancer care, control of diabetes and pancreatic disorder.

Sea salt and water is the basis of many prevailing therapeutic modalities which originated when Hippocrates discovered the healing effects of sea water on the hands of injured fisherman. Guests will enjoy the invigorating feeling of being immersed in a tub of sea salt and water and at the same time replenishing vital minerals thru the skin and eliminating toxins from the body. Bathing the body in sea salt and water promotes relief of muscle and joint pain, wound healing and release of stress and anxiety. Salt is also used in ancient healing traditions to remove negative energies residing in the body.
Magnesium is known as a muscle relaxant. Soaking in this bath addresses lactic acid build-up seen among those with frozen shoulder and chronic muscle tension/aches. This variation of body salt bath is also ideal for those with hypertension and fibromyalgia.

The Farm is now offering intravenous vitamins. IV drip is good for replenishing the depleted vitamins and minerals that are required for optimum health. The IV cocktail is specifically formulated according to the needs of each individual.
It helps those with adrenal insufficiency, depression and generally those with weak immune system. It greatly improves circulation and has been instrumental in the prevention of leg amputation among diabetics.
It is a great support for cancer patients already undergoing conventional cancer chemotherapy. IV vitamin drip is a must before your next cycle of chemo drugs…to protect your normal cells and prevent extreme nausea and other unnecessary debilitating side effects.
As we age, our ability to generate and store nutrients decline. This decline in turn further accelerates the aging process. Aside from glutathione, our bodies require the presence of Vitamin B complex, vitamin C and minerals. This will help the body restore its vitality and decelerate the aging process.
Our immune system is highly dependent on the availability of vitamins, enzymes, and minerals. Central to this is the adequate amounts of vitamin C, zinc, selenium, glutathione and alpha lipoic acid.
During prolonged periods of stress, the body will deplete its production of cortisol, the primary stress hormones. Having vitamin B5, B6 as well as calcium and magnesium, these modulate cortisol secretion. Tempering cortisol secretion is very important to consider for those whose lifestyle and work is demanding on the mind and body.
It has been widely acknowledged that persons who have been sick for long periods of time have depleted vitamin B and C as well as minerals. IV vitamin drip can rapidly replenish the needed nutrients in order for the person to fully recover from their disease.
Medically supervised IV oxygenation therapy is utilized to improve the blood and immune status of a person. Ozonation of the blood increase oxygen concentration in the blood. The extra oxygen atom produced in ozonation then reacts with various proteins, amino acids and fatty acids that influence the immune system. Bacteria, viruses and fungi are rapidly destroyed on contact. It also detoxifies the blood from chemicals, blood impurities and endotoxins.
To quote those who have undergone this treatment: “relief of body aches especially on the shoulders,” “a feeling of being more alive in the body” and “a sense of more awakeness.”
The Farm is currently the only Integrated Medical Clinic, in the Philippines, that offers this treatment via the Hypermed Ozone Machine.
The Farm offers footbath in a very unique way. The foot carries our entire weight through most of the day. A simple device is employed to help establish the harmonious flow of energies in the feet which get chaotic from use of cramped closed shoes and walking on pavement. More than the benefit of internal organ cleansing through potent ingredients or a specialized machine, it is done with utmost reverence and deep honoring of the individual – being in line with the tradition of the way footbaths were done in ancient times. With the aid of an audio-recording of an ancient Hawaiian healing technique of letting go of negative memories stored in the cells, you are released from the feeling of “unfreedom” especially from unconscious energies that do not serve your life anymore and hinder you from moving forward in life.
Ionization Detox Foot Bath W/ Far Infrared Bamboo Charcoal Therapy
The Ionization Foot Bath machine uses natural aqua ions for bio energetic cleansing of the body through the meridians. The complex energy fields of the Ionization Detox Foot Bath machine permeate the water, realigning the body’s energy field. Many of the benefits of the ionic detoxification footbath can be attributed to the “re-balancing” of these energy meridian lines allowing a body mass to function better.
The action results in the initial purging of chemical toxins and nucleic waste products generated within the cells and their surrounding membranes. The color and degree of cloudiness of the water after the detox will point to certain disease tendencies based on a chart mapped after years and years of data analysis. You will be glad that you have eliminated these harmful substances from your body.
In addition, this treatment includes far infrared therapy using bamboo charcoal. Studies show that bamboo charcoal made from 5-year old bamboo grown in remote mountains have superior balancing capacity through the natural production of healthy anions, far infrared rays and neutralizing of harmful electromagnetic waves. A series of this treatment results in decrease in joint stiffness and healthy collagen tissue.

Beyond the physical body is the life force body or body of energy; otherwise known as chi in Chinese medicine, Ki in Japanese and prana in Indian medical traditions.
Life Force Nourishment is a form of therapy that allows the patient to fully experience sense impressions or emotions thereby re-connecting him to his “inner essence.”
The patient is guided to navigate through these experiences in a safe and nurturing space. It also develops his senses to healing energies available to him through nature and within his being.
This is highly recommended for those whose physical bodies “feel like screaming,” high-strung, highly-irritable individuals and those needing clarity in thinking.
This is from a body of knowledge that harmonizes the energetic flows of the different internal organs based on the universal principles underlying Himalayan, Atlantean, Asian and Egyptian ancient healing traditions.
This supports the medical management of genetic conditions, autoimmune diseases and recovery from chemo and radiation therapy, major surgery and trauma like vehicular accidents and terrible falls in childhood.
An audio-recording is played during the session to address any subconscious programming that do not serve your life anymore.
Meditation is a form of mental discipline to achieve a state of relaxation or awareness leading to the expansion of one’s consciousness. Our guides will assist you as you embark in a journey to quiet the mind, release stress and improve the oxygenation of the body.
Acupuncture is the most notable medical discovery from China. Five thousand years of clinical experience from over hundreds of millions of people, acupuncture is now accepted worldwide as a therapeutic modality for pain as well as chronic medical conditions. Disposable fine stainless steel needles are inserted on specific acupoints in the body depending on the condition of the patients.
Effective for Treating Addictions
Ear Acupuncture is based on the fact that there are points for the entire body mapped out on the ear’s surface. In 1974, The National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) through Michael O. Smith MD D.Ac., a psychiatrist, has developed a protocol to treat addictions using five acupuncture points on each ear.
These points include:
Aside from addictions, this five point protocol has also been found effective for stress reduction, emotional trauma management, smoking cessation and treatment of other illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia.
Reiki is a Japanese Healing Art. Reiki is a specific type of profound subtle energy work in which healing is performed by the touch of the hands, allowing the flow of the energy from a limitless source to the patient via the Reiki practitioner. It is extremely powerful, yet gentle energy that can be easily channelled to yourself and others, just by intention.
Reiki healing is a pure energy form. When it is combined with the sincere Desire of the Healee, who is willing to effect a cleansing within their emotional and spiritual consciousness, a total healing can occur. Reiki is excellent for healing any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues of any kind.
Craniosacral therapy is a form of light-touch therapy. The cranium (cranio-head) and sacrum (tailbone area) is connected by the spinal cord- the central nerve that carries impulses from the brain to the different body parts, and is bathed in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). This therapy aims to regulate and equilibrate the rhythmic flow of CSF and bring energy back into one’s pressured system through palpation.
This is a systematic way of addressing blockages both in the physical body through specific points known as gateways and psycho-emotional levels through a process of interactive sourcing which eventually connects the physical body to that part of the human being uncorrupted by illness. This proves helpful for those with medically illogical conditions like those who gain weight despite eating healthy, exercise regularly and have no endocrine disorder and inability to bear children despite normal anatomy/physiology. Other conditions helped by a series of Gateway Healing are chronic fatigue syndrome and Lyme’s disease.
Art therapy is a discipline that requires professional training in both psychology and the objective observation of art in nature to efficiently aid the healing process. Aside from helping address psychoemotional issues like bi-polar disorder, art therapy also helps physical illnesses using scientific investigation of the healing qualities of art media. There are specific medical rationales for choosing oil painting vs. water color or beeswax vs. clay modelling given how a particular condition like arthritis or autism manifest in an individual. Grounded in science, art therapy incorporates simple scientific experiments or discussion/short film showing of relevant scientific principles for the patient to appreciate various healing art principles.
Miracle Science is a series of easy-to-understand conversations on brain science and other basic sciences like embryology coupled with life coaching or short film showing. One’s capacity for imagination is a function of real possibilities in life. It is logical in its approach and helpful for those who need help believing in miracles.
For example, someone with ankylosing spondylosis (fusing of the backbones) knows it is genetic and has been primed by most doctors to prepare for eventual immobility… Zeroing in on the cellular fact that at any given point, the bone cells are destroying damaged bones and building new ones, a patient can be coached to help create a blueprint of healthy bone cells and ground this new possibility into his/her new experience of reality.
Some bodily reactions like histamine reaction (random itching in the body or extreme inflammation from a mosquito bite), skin reactions to accessories like earrings, irritation by tags in clothes and extreme weight gain after pregnancy, uncontrollable mood swings or pathological hoarding may be due to imbalance in bodily biochemistry. Depression, for example, is documented to have 5 biochemical profiles. Knowing which biotype can help shorten the depressive bout and end the misery associated with the above-mentioned conditions.
Have you noticed certain patterns in your life like maybe sluggishness or volatile emotions on certain times of the year? Or maybe a series of bad break-ups or repeating experiences that make no sense? Be more conscious of these patterns through biorhythm, overcome default tendencies and powerfully be the captain of your life.
