The Farm at San Benito is a refuge for relaxation, healing, wellness and healthy eating. It’s located in a 49 hectare property in the woods and rolling hills of Lipa City, Batangas, with a good view of Mt. Malarayat. It is one of the few truly medical spas or alternative medical health resorts in the world. While-as traditional western medicine is largely focused on symptoms repair, The Farms therapies through detoxification include the whole person, body, mind and soul – so to speak – because when one hurts, all suffer.

Healing & Medicine

Deficiencies and congestion are the root cause of all physical, mental and emotional dysfunctions. Deficiencies prevent the body from operating optimally and sustaining proper function. Blockages impede the body from eliminating substances toxic and damaging to it. The elimination of deficiencies and blockages at the physical, mental and emotional level restores absolute health. The elimination of deficiencies and blockages must be accomplished according to the laws of nature, not by coercing the body for the purpose of producing temporary effects or the mere relief of symptoms without regard for the root cause.

For many years, treatment of illnesses has revolved around alleviating the symptoms of patients. Doctors have put too much emphasis on the diseased organ. Only recently has the medical profession begun to acknowledge that any particular organ is a part of a system, which affects all other functions of the entire human body. Here at The Farm we do not limit these functions to the physical aspect alone. We see ourselves as spiritual, mental and emotional beings as much as we are physical beings. As such, emphasis on a person's psychological make-up is a natural part of our treatment. It cannot be denied that emotional strain and stress can affect our health. Often times, tumors, chest pains, or other symptoms manifest partly because of suppressed negative sentiments. Healing can only occur if problems at all levels have been unearthed and addressed.

Improving Lifestyle

Awareness is the first step in addressing our health problems. It is good to know that many people are becoming more and more health conscious. However, most stop there: "Yes, I am aware that exercise is important but I just can't squeeze it in my tight schedule," or "I know smoking is bad but I really can't seem to stop especially when I'm stressed." The Farm is committed to educating our guests in the ways of proper nutrition and lifestyle. It is not mere information that we provide our guests; we make sure that health principles are inculcated in each of them by letting them experience what we teach. Human beings are creatures of habit and by letting our guests apply what they have learned under our close supervision we are confident that when they leave The Farm they have renewed their perception of their health and have formed new habits on how to take care of their bodies.

Principle of Detoxification

Most, if not all, of the modern-day diseases (digestive disorders, cancer, diabetes, hypertension, chronic degenerative diseases such as arthritis) have their origin in the accumulation of toxins in our bodies. Toxins weaken our immune system or the body's way of warding off diseases. Toxins come from environmental pollution, cigarette smoking, food preservatives, repeated use of cooking oil, strained relations, stress, and a whole lot more. The Farm offers a Prevention program that focuses on medically guided detoxification as a way to jump start the body cleansing process. Psycho-emotional detoxification is an integral part of this cleansing program. For those with more serious health conditions, The Farm medical staff will design a Recovery program tailored to the individual’s specific health needs.

    I think, many alternative medicine practitioners promote various other types of detoxification such as diet detoxification
