Mental Health

Fueled by the demand of modern times for “more” and “faster” work output, a lot of individuals nowadays find themselves gradually spiraling down to a life-draining existence. Others find themselves waking up having uncontrollable mood swings or unproductive thoughts. A lot of these challenges stem from mental and emotional levels and impact the physical body. Mental-emotional health challenges can manifest in different forms:

  • physiologic (adjustment concerns related to menopause or teenage changes);
  • physical (e.g. recovery from a devastating stroke or heart attack, debilitating body pains or skin diseases like psoriasis), or
  • psycho-emotional or psycho-social (as in the case of bullying in children, traumas or recovering from a bad breakup).

The list also includes anxiety, depressive tendencies, different forms of addictions such as gadget addiction to the point of sleep deprivation…it just gets getting longer! Add to these, the overall adjustments demanded of us to thrive given the big lifestyle and overall life changes brought about by the pandemic.

The Farm’s Mental Health program consists of a series of services tailored to one’s individual needs with this goal in mind: bring you to a space of genuine mental well-being.

TREATMENT DESCRIPTION

Nutrient-Rich Organic Vegan Meals and Beverages

Three-course plant-based meals will be served for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with antioxidant-rich juices. The meals and juices will have low glycemic index fruits and no extra sugar like honey or coco sugar as simple sugars may prevent optimal function of the body’s natural defenses.

Nutritional Assessment

The weight, body composition measurements, and usual food intake are taken to assess the guests’ nutritional status. Using these data, the nutritionist guides the guest on how to sustainably achieve their health and nutrition goals.

 

Fitness Assessment

Fitness Assessment is a one-on-one discussion with our certified fitness professionals to evaluate 4 key fitness areas: aerobic fitness; muscular strength and endurance; flexibility; and body composition in a holistic approach to achieve your fitness goals.

 

Holistic Health Consultation

An initial talk with our doctor that will discuss the guest’s goals, health concerns and challenges. It will help to identify the root cause of the disharmony between the physical, psycho-emotional and spiritual aspect of the individual based on Review System or Symptoms & Diet Analysis.

Cellular Health Screening

This is a high-value introduction to health-consciousness among the young and those who want to jumpstart a healthy lifestyle using one’s blood as seen live under a special microscope.

The blood is a very special part of the human being, it stirs a person’s feelings and consciousness more than any other bodily fluid. It is an educational experience-based tour through visual appreciation of one’s overall health status through the quality of the red blood cells and the actions of the white blood cells. It gives a glimpse of what’s happening inside the body and as well as information on possible nutritional deficiencies, subtle toxicities and the person’s immune status. It is based on foundations of histology (study of cells) and hematology (study of blood) correlated clinically through the cellular manifestations of inflammation and oxidative stress. It uses a specialized microscope to look into signs of dysbiosis (gut health and microbiome-related disorder), sugar and cholesterol imbalance, as well as internal organ distress such as the liver and kidneys.

More than the vast information from one drop of living blood, the value of this experience is in its ability to connect you to the intelligence of your body in a deeper sense. Thereby being a powerful tool in your quest for optimal health.

 

Brain Biofeedback

The machine scans the electromagnetic fields produced by our neural cells and calculate possible perturbation in the energetic body. The doctor or nutritionist will interpret the findings and give recommendations to improve the one’s health.

Psychosomatic Health Assessment (Voice Analysis)

An analysis that can identify specific stressors that affect your health just by examining your voice.  The Voice Analysis can recognize what organs in your body are directly being affected by stress. After de-stressing and stress management recommendations from the Farm, the Voice Analysis can know and compare how you are truly managing your stress.

Acqua Flotation Therapy

A sensory deprivation water pod saturated with 360-540kgs of Epsom salt (aka Magnesium sulfate) that allows the body to float without effort. It encourages the brain and body to rebalance itself without intervening external stressors. This will help to relieve stress, anxiety and depression. It reduces chronic fatigue caused by insomnia and jet lag and accelerates mental clarity and learning.  This treatment addresses pain management to soothe oneself from arthritis, fibromyalgia, back and neck pain, inflammation and tendonitis and more.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a major component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acknowledged by WHO as a safe and evidence-based effective treatment. It involves the insertion of fine, thin and sterile needles into the meridian or targeted points of the body to stimulate sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscles. This results in the body producing natural substances like pain –relieving endorphins. Only duly certified and licensed Acupuncturists supervised by a Medical doctor perform this procedure. The combination of Cupping and/or Myotherapy can further enhance the efficacy of Acupuncture.

Myotherapy

A medically-directed therapeutic massage under Physical Therapy specifically targeting trigger points and acupuncture spots in muscle complexes to treat soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement. The therapy corresponds to the chief complaints of the health partner and as directed by the medical doctor and/or physical therapist. A best combination therapy for Acupuncture, Physiotherapy and Chiropractic Care to further enhance the efficacy of the integration of treatments.

Psychotherapy

Our well-trained team of Psychologists, Psychiatrists and Counselors focus on the person’s mental well-being, their ability to function in everyday life and their concept of “self”. The team help manage a person struggling with behavioral health concerns who are or may face stress, depression, anxiety, relationship problems, grief, addiction, ADHD or learning disabilities, mood disorders and others.

Psychoemotional Clearing

Involves combination of any techniques that help clear mental confusion, reveal psycho emotional scars, and break free from negative emotional imprisonment which is the root cause of many physical ailments and disharmonies. This is highly recommended for those who are high-strung and highly-irritable, and those who see life as an experience of unfreedom.

Guided Meditation

A private meditation session where the guest experiences self-awareness, management of thoughts leading to a state of relaxation and expansion of consciousness.

Sustainable Healthy Lifestyle Discussion

At the end of the guest’s program, the doctor helps them create a sustainable health plan for their life after The Farm taking into consideration the genes, environment, and current lifestyle.

 

Intravenous Nutritional Therapy – Myer’s Cocktail

The combination of Vitamin C, B complex, and magnesium boosts immunity, gives more energy, and improves a person’s mood.

Stimulating Treatment

Eliminates build up by stimulating the glands, improving circulation, removing dead skin cells, attacking cellulite and strengthening the immune system. It begins with skin kayud or scraping. Using two mother of pearl shells, the therapists engage the lymph system, remove dead skin cells and tighten the skin. After, a barako coffee pack is applied to the body. The barako coffee stimulates circulation, eliminates, and targets the areas that require detoxification. After 15 minutes, the pack is rinsed off and a warm bath follows.

Eye Exercises for Improved Vision

The sense of sight has been abused especially with the current trend of screen overuse, online learning and e-meetings.  Eye exercises to correct errors of refraction (astigmatism, near and far-sightedness) come in timely and relevant.  This session includes tips to improve eyesight naturally through nutrition and safeguard the eyes from electromagnetic radiation-related damages.

Organic Farm Tour

The Farm’s 5,700+ sqm. organic vegetable & herb garden is an example of organic precision agriculture. Everything grown on the land has been designed to fit the farm’s culinary needs. The Farm is designed to have a seasonal rotation of crops for a true sustainable, organic farm-to-table experience.

Food waste from the kitchen is transported daily and segregated accordingly – with some fed to the animals and the rest added to the compost area where both agricultural and biodegradable wastes are treated. It’s here that we create natural fertilizers by allowing the waste to ferment aerobically with microorganisms.

By growing majority of our produce on-site, The Farm is not only increasing food security but also reducing our carbon footprint by limiting the transport of food. Guests may enjoy the food knowing exactly how it’s grown, where it comes from, and who is involved in the process.

 

Sound Healing

Uses vibrations (vocal or instrumental-like gongs, Tibetan singing bowls and tuning forks) in order to relax the body, mind and soul. Some proponents also believe it can relieve certain ailments including pain, anxiety, depression or insomnia.

Sound therapy is a clinical and evidence-based therapy used for dealing with mental health issues, such as anxiety, pain and sleep disorders. These issues are usually caused by high levels of tension and stress. Sound healing brings one to a relaxed state with sounds created by singing bowls, tuning forks and other resonant musical instruments, including the human voice. Recent research suggests that in counseling sessions, it can be a catalyst for emotional healing used in combination with other modalities such as meditation, deep breathing and visualization.
