Philippines, a country that some guide books has long referred as “sick man of Asia” due to it’s socio-economical backwardness in some areas may sound like a newcomer in the field of medical tourism, but it has long traditions in serving foreign clientele among it’s own prosperous class in it’s JCI accredited Hospitals and clinics. It’s reputation as world leader in exporting medical professionals such as nurses is legendary. Although the stigma of underdevelopment still impacts life of the ordinary and some recent GDP growth figures that are said to debunk the previously earned reputation are not the most informative source to give complete picture of state of affairs and living standards. On top of all the positive sides that draws medical tourists to Philippines, it provides variety of natural beauty and hospitality of locals that are culturally most accustomed with western people in Asia besides Hong Kong and Singapore, despite several infrastructural flaws. (Edit: Now it seems like with their new president Duterte some things are improving after so many years of suffering of crime and corruption. Time will tell if his undertakings have any lasting and more substantial effect that reaches the socioeconomic disparity)
On my travels in 2014 after Thailand I went to see if I could make appointment with some of the bioresonance or ozone and chelation therapy practitioners around Manila area or elsewhere in Philippines. I found out there is at least two doctors integrating energy-medicine into their protocols. And one might still be in Davao working with MSAS Professional system. Dr. Teena Fabella offers Co-Re treatments in Quezon City(Metro Manila) on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Other days she spends in Marikina area on the field of Obstetrics & Gynecology. I did not have time to meet up with her, but instead was only talking on the phone. I may produce review of her place later on. Last time my schedule clashed with hers so I had to skip it.
The doctor I managed to meet on my short visit was Dr. Homer Lim who works at Akesis Holistic Health center. There he offers IV laser biochelation therapy and bioresonance scannings with SCIO and Chinese “QMRA” systems.
Dr.Lim used to work also at The Farm at San Benito between 2010-2015 where he was responsible establishing some of the anti-aging therapies the center is famous for. It’s a posh holistic detox resort two hours drive from Manila on the way to Batangas port that serves as dock for going to Puerto Galera. So it can be easily combined to any trip plan. But as the reviews show Batangas port is a place of great hazzle, so be careful and hold on to your bags. I haven’t visited The Farm yet, but they offer plenty of holistic and integrative modalities and it’s one of the few places that provides ozone therapy in Philippines. Although the pricing is at western level for ozone treatments like autohemotherapy. The Farm at San Benito is also the only place in Philippines that offers direct intravenous ozone injection(DIV) so it has a price tag of 5000 PHP(ca.107 USD) per session, but you might be able to negotiate a package with discounts. Rectal insufflation comes at around 40 $.
Therefore it may not be the place for most budget oriented travellers. But for many US or other citizens of more prosperous Asian countries that are restricted or limited of those modalities in their own country, it is surely a great place to get a kick start in healing in short term basis. And not to mention that Philippines is much closer to US than India for instance, so it makes it more convenient and time saving. Also the possible savings in travel costs may be used for treatments. For Europeans India has an edge in cheap flights and distance while Mexico is usually the best bet for North-Americans. Philippines may attract mostly people from Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan and Australia.
See below for a more detailed review of Dr.Lim and his bioresonance applications and impressions.
