Health is the perfect balance between the physical, mental and spiritual body of an
individual. Various symptoms may be a manifestation of involvement of one or all of these
bodies; hence a holistic medical consultation with our physicians will help to identify the
root cause of these health challenges. Evaluation and counseling will encompass
psychological and nutritional aspects of an individual.
Nutritional Microscopy analyzes 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 visual representation of
a patient’s nutritional status and blood condition to encourage him/her to adopt a healthier
lifestyle and/or diet.
The capillaries show the amount of oxygen reaching the cells. The length and direction of
the capillaries gives a picture of the current state of health. A simple procedure, a drop of

The energetic lines that run throughout our body are known as meridians or nadis. There are approximately 72,000 nadis according to ancient Chinese 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 we could design a plan on how to strengthen the particular organ system and keep our bodies energy in balance.
Colon hydrotherapy removes toxic wastes that have accumulated and hardened in the colon by irrigating with water. Two methods are offered: Colema and Colonics. The two methods differ in that the Colema is considered an open system while Colonics is considered a closed system.
The Colema is essentially a coffee enema. A warm coffee solution is inserted into the colon through gravity. Waste is removed with you pushing, similar to bowel movement.
Colonics is performed mechanically. Warm water is inserted with gentle pressure, irrigating the colon. When the feeling of movement is reached the machine is released and the waste is allowed to flow out of the tube.
For first time guests, we recommend a Colema first, followed by Colonics the next day. The reasoning behind this is, the Colema loosens the waste and releases gas during the initial treatment. This prepares the colon for the deeper cleansing of the Colonics.

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.
Massaging the abdominal area is a great way to enhance and develop a strong hara.

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. Intravenous vitamin infusions can rapidly replenish the needed nutrients in order for the person to fully recover from their disease.
Ozone is a naturally occurring gas in our atmosphere that shields us from ultraviolet radiation. It is composed of 3 oxygen atoms. Medically supervised ozone therapy is utilized to improve the blood and immune status of a person. Ozonation of the blood produces oxygen (O2) molecules that increase oxygen concentration in the blood. The extra oxygen atom then reacts with various proteins, amino acids and fatty acids that influence the immune system. Bacteria, viruses and fungi are rapidly destroyed when it reacts with the extra oxygen atom. It also detoxifies the blood from chemicals, blood impurities and endotoxins.
The Farm is currently the only Integrated Medical Clinic, in the Philippines, that offers this treatment via the Hypermed Ozone Machine.

Beyond the physical body is the life force body or body of energy; otherwise known as the chi in Chinese medicine or 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,” that part of his being that does not get diseased. 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. In order to tap into this healing fountain and allow the energy to flow one has to be aware, totally open and connected.
Craniosacral therapy is a form of light-touch therapy. The cranium (cranio-head) and sacrum (sacral 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. The service requires the completion of a medical consultation in advance of the service.
The Ionization Detox Foot Bath is a hydrotherapy detoxification & cleansing system. The Ionization Foot Bath machine uses natural aqua ions (water ions) for bio energy detoxification and cleansing of the body and its energy 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. You are going to find this out yourself when you soak your feet in the charged bath of water and relax as toxins diffuse and wash away from the bottom of each foot.

The Clay Foot Bath is very suitable for those who are very acidic or toxic, allowing the body to release of toxins.
