David (Dr. Farrah) vs. Goliath (Big Pharma/Big Medicine/Big Government)
I have made many enemies in Big Pharma and many Doctors in Big Medicine because I cannot be controlled by them and openly criticize the ineffectiveness of “conventional” medicine. I refuse the Big Pharma payoffs and work for patient interests, not those of multinational drug companies. The presidents of 5 medical associations here in the Philippines have complained to numerous government agencies about me since the effectiveness and affordability of Natural medicine has now become a serious threat to their healthcare “business”. They forgot about the Traditional and Alternative Medicines Act of 1997 apparently. I even wrote all of them to try and understand their ridiculously aggressive stance but they returned my packages.
They know the best way to delegitimize someone is to attack them with false allegations. Their petty complaint has been dismissed nearly everywhere. But, due to “politics” and significant political pressure, I was in fact visited by 30 FDA “agents” on July 27, under a false complaint from these presidents who have never actually been to my facility. They even had an ABS-CBN news crew here with them. I showed them hospitality, gave them a nice interview and toured them around my facility. They even got to examine a mountain of successful patient records. When you are operating completely legally, you have nothing to hide. This is why I welcomed them into my clinic and home with open arms.
Among the many false allegations, were that we are allegedly dispensing and selling prescription drugs here in a pharmacy. Sorry folks, what we have is a Farmacy that offers natural, plant-based options specific to my patients. It was also alleged by them that I am not a licensed Medical Doctor. Really? It’s so sad that people will often do and say anything they can to silence their competition. Instead of offering a better way of treating patients, they come after me. They send in fake patients and do secret surveillance. I have nothing to hide. The fear that they are trying to stir up only hurts patients and satisfies their greedy desires by turning frightened patients away from me. There is no scandalous story here other than what my critics are desperately attempting to create.
Another significant allegation was that our products are unregistered. I’m not sure how they arrive at that conclusion when we are simply waiting for (a very long time) the second approval of FDA. Nevermind the fact that my products have been tested at UP and St. Luke’s with amazing results. Nevermind that 16 years of clinical studies have shown incredible effects. I guess if we were selling Dengvaxia then we could have counted on a fast approval like Sanofi got instead of waiting so long for our Certificates of Product Registration.
I allowed them to take approx 300k worth of products so that they wouldn’t be embarrassed by leaving here empty handed with all of the political favors and expense that went into this “raid”. I’m pretty sure that this “raid” was designed to try and embarrass me and my facility just like they did with Dr. Vicki Belo, because she is a strong female Doctor who also goes against the grain. Why hasn’t ABS-CBN run any story? Why not show all the tests on my products? They have them now. Why not show all the successful, documented patient recoveries? They recorded them. Why not show my interview with them? It’s very inconvenient for Big Pharma and Big Medicine that so many people come to my facility looking for health, and find it. When a patient is cured, they lose another customer and word spreads.
Now, the DOH has apparently issued a closure order on my clinic, but someone forgot to tell them that it’s not in their jurisdiction to do so. I would think that they would be more concerned about Dengvaxia, but clearly, this is what happens when I’m critical of their embarrassingly inept fumbling of the Dengvaxia issue in all aspects from beginning to now. They choose to come after me with no due process whatsoever because I am concerned about the affected children and not the Multinational Drug company Sanofi. Sorry DOH, we have laws and my Attorney Sig Fortun is all over this. Sometimes when people go looking for a fight, they are shocked when they find it. I will not be silent about it either.
I will never stop fighting against Big Pharma and Big Medicine or their cronies in government. Filipinos deserve the best healthcare in the world and I will continue to fight for my patients against these multinational drug companies, bloated hospitals and antiquated medical societies struggling for relevance. My clinic is open and will remain so. I’m fully prepared to let this fight get as ugly as these other doctors want. I’ve been compiling the evidence for my protocols, Natural Medicine AND looking forward to this fight for years. It’s David (Dr. Farrah) vs. Goliath (Big Pharma/Big Medicine/Big Government).
I am ashamed of my peers today. I am embarrassed that they would file ridiculous and baseless complaints against me in an attempt to try and deny lifesaving care to sick patients.
They will certainly try and say that it’s in the interest of safety, but we REALLY know why.
Why have none of them ever paid me a visit to discuss any patient concerns? Can they not call me? Can they not send me a text? Can they not send me an email? Can they not send me a letter? Can they not attend any of my regularly scheduled seminars? Can they not send me a message on social media?
Why is it that first contact with me must be so adversarial? Curiously, all of the complainants are also fellows of the same medical society, of which I am not a member. Yet, I am a properly licensed Medical Doctor, and as such have a right to practice my profession. I choose not to be a member of societies like theirs for instances just like this when instead of meeting with a Doctor to try and understand a different way of doing things, they resort to terrorist type tactics like this to exert influence over lone innovative doctors such as me.
Their society has just over 700 followers on social media, whereas I have millions. It’s clearly lacking in relevance nowadays. If our citizenry were satisfied with the healthcare situation that they promote, I would be obscure and relatively unknown like they currently are now. PITAHC, The (Philippine Institute of Traditional and Alternative Healthcare) has roughly forty times the followers on social media that their medical society has.
When it comes to being a doctor, the art of medicine is the cornerstone of medical practice. If medicine were all science, only science, & irrefutable facts, it would be far easier to just type every symptom into a computer and have it spit out the completely perfect diagnosis, and an effective treatment. Maybe throw in an automated scan or two, a pinprick for blood analysis just to be sure. Perhaps keep a human-computer tech on standby in case one of the machines decides to go haywire.
But doctoring also takes judgment. It demands a personal touch. It involves intuition. A human being must take account of every single factor involved in every patient and make a decision on what to do each and every time that patient walks into the office. And it’s OK for doctors to disagree with one another; opinions can differ. That’s why many patients will seek a “second opinion” for complicated medical situations—because there rarely is just one absolutely correct answer.
The Philippines is the home of the Traditional and Alternative Medicine Act of 1997, and every November in the Philippines is Traditional and Alternative Health Month. But, are we really “free“ to promote and practice Traditional and Alternative Health Care in the Philippines despite government mandates to do so?
What transpired now with these 5 presidents speaks a different story about what we can choose to do as doctors. Because now it’s apparently accepted by the medical societies here in the Philippines for doctors to significantly and severely violate ethics by filing false complaints with our Department of Health and to FDA. Classic forum shopping. This was done by no less than the society presidents themselves, which they hope will impress those who sit in judgment.
These doctors are trying to ignite a very one-sided debate over healthcare in the Philippines, loaded with misinformation and fear mongering. What breeds this fear?
The answer is ignorance. (1) Ignorance about medical history and science itself. That’s bad enough. But what’s worse is the product of that ignorance-bred fear. This has the potential to create a calamity in the Philippine medical community, of which I am well prepared and motivated to engage in head on, armed with my extensive medical research and evidence database, 16 years of clinical practice, and the best legal team in the Philippines. I really do love the David vs. Goliath story.
This situation has these five complainant doctors thinking they are on the moral and scientific high ground, ready, willing and actively striking at someone they deem a heretic, without examining any scientific facts to any degree whatsoever. This jihad against me has gone to great lengths to lie and “allege” as much as possible. Bertrand Russell warned: “Collective fear stimulates herd instinct, and tends to produce ferocity toward those who are not regarded as members of the herd.”
Take this “herd instinct” and “hero worship” of doctors, coupled with the penchant of humans to implicitly believe an “authority figure” is always right, mix in a bit of ostracism, and VOILA you got a recipe for a gaggle of people that will do whatever they’re told.
Claims that my methods have no “proven benefits” is an ignorant and patently false debate tactic seeking to diminish my credibility and demonstrate that I should not be taken seriously or even be given the time of day. Just because these complaining peers are the presidents of medical societies with significantly declining membership rosters doesn’t mean that I will cow to them like they’re the second coming. What all five are blatantly ignorant of are the numerous tests that were conducted at UP Diliman which showed significant results on numerous cancer cell lines. But, that is, of course, an inconvenient truth to include in their nonsensical complaint. They are also forgetting the extensive tests that were conducted at St. Luke’s medical center which showed significant results from the tests of Dr. Gil Vicente, M.D., whom I just shared a press conference with.
Again, troublesome facts to include. What about the 2 separate news articles from GMA TV regarding the successful UP Dilliman tests? What about the Philippine star article from 2012 plainly stating in the headline, “Pinoy scientist scores breakthrough in cancer research”.
The five complainants had even called my protocols “harmful”, “unapproved” and even “banned”. My products had a prior LTO with my father, and upon his death, required resubmittal, which was already done at FDA, so that claim is baseless. I have BFAD LTO-3000002479997.
If one simply looks at the surface of these (false) statements which have zero basis in fact whatsoever, one wouldn’t realize the extensive testing and pre-approval that have already gone into the Boston C product over the last 16 years. They are also clearly unaware of the invitation from PITAHC to pay for clinical studies on the demonstrated effectiveness of Boston C.
Other than trying to quash a competitor in the marketplace, I believe that one of the primary issues at stake here is freedom. The very idea that any Filipino should have freedom, privacy or liberty remaining at all regarding their health care choices is venomously assaulted by the corporate-infected medical establishment and our medical education which is so incredibly dated that it still insists there’s no such thing as an anti-cancer food. (Um, try some broccoli…)
If my complainants want to discuss “proven benefits”, please tell me why are there so many MRM’s for stage 1 breast cancer here in the Philippines, when that procedure has been largely abandoned in favor of lumpectomy in Western countries for the last 30 years?
Please tell me why there are so many patients who get chemo rounds to the 4th and beyond when peer reviewed medical literature absolutely doesn’t support it? I hope they can even tell me what the safe dose of medical radiation is according to EVERY relevant regulatory agency?
For any doctor to claim that there is not SIGNIFICANT scientific basis for what I do with any patient is really very far beyond absurd. Anything, medically I do as a doctor, is grounded in SIGNIFICANT research and evidence. I am a trained medical doctor with 16 years of experience! I have likely consulted with more patients personally than every single one of my complainants, and potentially more patients than all of them combined.
It is widely known that I never charge “professional fees” and I actively discourage the practice of collecting them in social media. Professional Fees are one of the primary ways in which Doctors earn income, but I personally disagree with the practice, as is my right. These “peers” are complaining regarding aspects of treatment that they know absolutely nothing about using suggestions that are laughable.
Not a single one of the five complainants have ever; met me, visited my facility, written to me, spoken to me, called me or invited me to anything at all ever. Yet, they have the audacity to file a libelous and malicious complaint against me without basic evidence of any kind.
When people die of chemo, it’s because they were sick. When patients die under my care, or if I have EVER consulted with them, it’s my fault? Here are a few famous Filipino’s who all died of cancer, that I never consulted with, who all underwent variations of chemo, radiation and surgery.

President Maria Corazon “Cory” Sumulong Cojuangco Aquino (January 25, 1933 – August 1, 2009) She was a Filipina politician who served as the 11th President of the Philippines and the first woman to hold that office. President Aquino died in the Makati Medical Center following chemotherapy for colorectal cancer.
Is it the Doctor’s fault why all of these people died of cancer? Was it the chemo poisons that killed them? Or, was it the stage 4 cancer and complications from it that ended their lives? One thing is for sure, all of them perished, all were treated by oncologists, and I didn’t consult with a single one of them. I can also provide my extensive database of Oncologists who have died of cancer if my complainants would like.
I’m challenging my five complainants to demonstrate a single patient they have treated with a documented case of Stage 4 cancer who is free of detectable cancer after 5 years. How about 10 years? How about 15 years? I can demonstrate it. I hope they are not cowards. I hope they accept my challenge.
Why shouldn’t we seek to understand a different way of treating illnesses? Don’t you think that patients also see the Pharmaceutical scandals that erupt year after year? They hear about the bribes, the payoffs, the sex for prescriptions, etc,. How many of my complainants wrote prescriptions for Vioxx? Every drug that gets recalled for safety reasons was also once approved. How many of my complainants are still advising patients about dietary cholesterol when the United States Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and Human Services announced 3 years ago in the Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee on page 91,
“Previously, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommended that cholesterol intake be limited to no more than 300 mg/day. The 2015 DGAC will not bring forward this recommendation because available evidence shows no appreciable relationship between consumption of dietary cholesterol and serum (blood) cholesterol, consistent with the AHA/ACC (American Heart Association / American College of Cardiology) report. Cholesterol is not a nutrient of concern for overconsumption.”
Shouldn’t cancer patients be advised very specifically when it comes to diet, since we know definitively by the mechanisms of just the PET scan alone, that cancer is clearly sugar metabolic? My complainants made wild assertions regarding my patient dietary protocol, yet they have been completely wrong and not backed up with a shred of truth. I NEVER say “no carbohydrates” to a patient. I do say “no simple carbohydrates” often, since these are rapidly metabolized into glucose within the human body. Cancer cells are sugar metabolic, so why would I ever allow simple carbs? Or Ensure?
The plants that I use in the treatment of maladies for patients are all part of the PITAHC written and produced books. I don’t use any plant or decoction of any kind that is “banned”. This is again, a libelous and false assertion that could have been answered with a simple visit to my clinic.
I could go on.
So, why so much interest in one doctor with my little clinic in the countryside?
Why do so many doctors feel drawn to offer their insights, commentary, criticisms and recommendations about me, when they know nothing of me or my methods at all? The patients who come to see me didn’t come here to talk to a western doctor. If they want the advice of another western minded doctor, they will go to a western minded doctor. Other doctors’ feelings shouldn’t be hurt by that, because it’s a simple truth.
I am the most well-known promoter and supporter of Traditional and Alternative Medicine in the Philippines. If these patients want the advice of my complainants, they will look for them and not me. These are people seeking advice and treatments regarding Traditional and Alternative medicine. If they wanted to hear more of what “conventional” doctors have to say, they would ask them.
For those who wish to question Traditional and Alternative medicine, let’s examine it here in the Philippines, where we are supposedly “free” to practice that type of medicine. Let’s nail down the definitions first.
me·dic·i·nal – adjective: (tending or used to cure disease or relieve pain)
med·i·cine – noun: (a substance or preparation used in treating disease)
Our government passed the TAMA act of 1997.
WHEREAS, the Traditional and Alternative Medicine Act (TAMA) of 1997, R.A. No. 8423
declares that it is the policy of the State to improve the quality and delivery of health care services to the Filipino people through the development of the traditional and alternative health care and its integration into the national health care delivery system; I am actively involved in this pursuit.
Should those Doctors who wish to pursue and promote naturally, Philippine grown alternatives for healing be crucified by their “peers” with no recourse whatsoever? To maliciously and baselessly attack doctors because they broaden their scope of practice beyond an ineffective and narrow “norm” dictated by a select few, and have a different opinion about what their own personal patient should receive is concerning… gravely concerning.
Clearly, the Government of the Philippines is supposed to be promoting Traditional and Alternative medicine, but what about the medical societies? Umm….Not so much. They would rather attack me because of the traction that Natural Medicine has gained as a result of my efforts, successes and significant social media following.
My complainants are also choosing to reference the standard of care. So, let’s talk about that “Standard of Care”. Informed consent for all complex, invasive medical procedures is the standard of care. Does that really happen here in the Philippines? Seriously? We do it here with each and every patient, and it is documented. A personal physician guiding each and every patient through the pros and cons of every medical decision is the standard of care. We can all agree that RARELY happens ANYWHERE outside my facility.
Regarding standard of care, I would once again ask my complainants why are there so many MRM’s for stage 1 breast cancer here in the Philippines, when that procedure has been largely abandoned in favor of lumpectomy in Western countries for the last 30+ years?
“Nevertheless, in many U.S. hospitals today, the management of labor and delivery doesn’t look very evidence-based. Many well-intentioned obstetricians still employ technological interventions that are scientifically unsupported or that run counter to the evidence of what is safest for mother and child… These problematic motivators are not unique to obstetrics, but obstetrics seems to be particularly resistant to the evidence…” Sousa AC and Dreger A. The Difference between Science and Technology in Birth. AMA Journal of Ethics September 2013: 15(9): 786-790.
Mandating a complex treatment, punishing a doctor for failure to convince a patient to accept that treatment, or attacking a doctor for exercising their professional judgement on that treatment (when you have never even seen the patient), is so far outside the standard of care, that perhaps Stalinistic doctors should lose their licenses for even suggesting such a thing. It’s dangerous to be right when everyone else is wrong. It’s also dangerous to publicly stand up for freedom, liberty and patient rights when every institution of a collapsing empire is wholly invested in medical totalitarianism and science dictatorship.
What about those who say that Traditional and Alternative medicine isn’t scientific or is “anti-science”? The most common refrain you hear from many members of the medical profession and the pharmaceutical industry who believe western medicine is the “be all and end all” is that those who don’t, simply do not believe in science. It’s a clever debate tactic which seeks to crush the credibility of the other side so that those who do not agree with that interpretation of the science are instantly judged to be ignorant, wrong and should not be taken seriously or even be given the time of day.
It’s what Socrates probably had in mind when he famously said, “When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.” And, of course, how better to slander your adversary than to try and delegitimize them. This would indicate why the vast majority of the attacks against me are personal or vague, because real scientific attacks simply won’t survive scrutiny.
www.drfarrahcancercenter.com literally cites thousands of studies demonstrating the benefits of plant-based medicinal approaches. How exactly is that “not scientific” or “anti-science”?
A simple search of the Pubmed database from the US National Library of Medicine from the National Institutes of Health for turmeric+cancer yields 5,062 full-text journal articles as of June 1, 2018. So, how exactly is plant based and natural medicine anti-science? How is it unproven?
For too long, we have accepted the misapplication of this anti-science term instead of rightly questioning the self-serving megalomaniacs who flagrantly throw it around.
sci·ence (sīəns/noun): the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.
Employees in the health field (licensed doctors, nurses, researchers, medical society presidents, etc.) are not “science.” They are people, only humans! They’ve gone through standardized education and training to perform basic duties. They are not the only people who can learn about the world around us. They are not the ultimate authority on a world we are still learning more about daily. They are not the keepers of the keys to knowledge. They are just people who studied a particular field, and often carry a massive ego
Science is a particular method of study. Not a group of people. Not a majority rule. Not a community that all agrees on one idea. Not an ultimate truth.
This science is also continually challenged, improved, and altered as people gain more knowledge and continue to explore our world. Remember the infamous Dr. Semmelweis who attempted to convince doctors to wash their hands and instruments to save women from sepsis?
What Semmelweis had discovered is something that still holds true today: Hand-washing is one of the most important tools in public health. It can keep kids from getting the flu, prevent the spread of disease and keep infections at bay. You’d think everyone would be thrilled. Semmelweis had solved the problem! But they weren’t thrilled. For one thing, doctors were upset because Semmelweis’ hypothesis made it look like they were the ones giving childbed fever to the women.(2) Dr. Semmelweis was ridiculed for his views and ruined by his peers. He was committed to an asylum, where he died at age 47 of pyaemia 14 days after being committed, following a savage beating by the guards.
Davis R. The Doctor Who Championed Hand-Washing And Briefly Saved Lives. NPR Jan. 12, 2015.
If you believe “science” is already determined, and is merely about majority consensus, you are actually referring to religion.
If you believe a potential finding in scientific studies, or hypotheses presented by scientists are unquestionably true, you are talking beliefs.
If you believe in this concept of science above all else, and cannot consider criticism or permit this science to be challenged or questioned, then you are following dogma.
If you believe all people must follow this science without doubting or searching for more answers, you are demanding an act of faith.
If you believe that the amount of science you have at your hands right now is the ultimate knowledge, and that all people must be compelled through peer pressure or laws to follow this science, you are attempting to make the Philippines a theocracy.
Theocracy is a form of government in which clergy (doctors) have sovereignty over a territory (medicine) and official policy is either governed by officials regarded as divinely guided, (from dogmatic science) or is pursuant to the doctrine of a particular religion or religious group (pharmaceutical company and lobbying groups).
What is real science? What does it mean to be pro-science? Who is supporting scientific exploration?
People who QUESTION current beliefs are pro-science.
People who want to EXPAND knowledge about our world are scientists.
People who FIGHT for ethical, empirical experiments are fighting for science.
People who DOUBT hypotheses and OFFER alternative ideas are encouraging scientific progress.
Those who question, those who want more investigation, those who want all aspects acknowledged, those who show caution about human rights violations or show concern for how our world might be hurt… Those people are the farthest from anti-science. So, who is actually anti-science? I can say one thing for certain, Dr. Farrah is the most scientific doctor I’ve ever known.
People who want to SILENCE opposing voices are anti-science.
People who HARASS, BULLY, or THREATEN those who question are anti-science.
People who CONFUSE fanaticism with science, who confuse profit with ethics, who confuse advances with empirical development, are anti-science.
People who SUPPORT a government operating as a theocracy based on dogma are anti-science.
People trying to FORCE others to follow an outdated, unproven, unethical medical program are religious fanatics.
They are anti-science.
When you use the anti-science label, apply it where it belongs. If you see someone using it inaccurately, correct them. People can and do change when presented with information.
So, here I will challenge and educate my complainants on the peer reviewed scientific information regarding medical interventions they are choosing to recommend, that I object to.
Primarily, I don’t feel that science supports the use of chemo. This is one of the many reasons why I broke ranks with my colleagues to demonstrate the truth as I see it. I believe that rational people interested in the truth will evaluate the evidence and conclude the same.
I’ve been waiting years for science to do more than just smugly state its superiority by actually putting itself into an objective evaluation, and I’m still waiting.
I openly challenge my five complainants to demonstrate the efficacy of chemo, surgery and radiation in the treatment of advanced cancer.
First off, think about how brainwashed conventionally-trained oncologists have become. They believe that cancer therapies are “working” when a person loses their appetite, muscle strength, hair, body weight and immune function, as long as the poisonous drugs they give are shrinking a tumor. The quality of life issues for patients are secondary. Does that sound right to you? How can “responses” (temporary tumor shrinkages) be used as a measure of therapeutic success? Treating cancer with chemotherapy is like treating alcoholism with vodka or treating diabetes with sugar.
Virtually all of the anticancer drugs approved by the FDA are toxic at the applied dosages and markedly immunosuppressive, destroying a patient’s natural resistance to many diseases, including cancer. Most of these FDA-approved chemo drugs are also carcinogenic, that is, capable of causing cancer in human beings.
All these drugs are poisonous not as a side effect but as a primary effect. Because these poisons cannot distinguish between cancerous and normal cells, they disrupt and kill normal, healthy cells throughout the body besides attacking tumors. They also significantly damage the bone marrow, thereby destroying the white blood cells, which fight infection; the red blood cells, which carry life-sustaining oxygen to the body’s organs; and the platelets, which help the blood to clot.
The true situation is that ineffective, aggressive chemotherapy can diminish not just quality of life but also quantity of life through organ toxicity, immunosuppression, and by inducing mutations in genetically unstable tumor cells to more aggressive phenotypes. The result is no significant improvement in the treatment of the most common forms of cancer over the past several decades.
Cancer is not caused by a poison deficiency, and poisoning the body while calling it “treatment” is a prime example of deception.
There is no cure for our addiction to medical hype. We want to believe that this “breakthrough” will work for us. We may even want our mother enrolled in this special “clinical trial”, or a new chemo protocol with “state-of-the-art” drugs. Don’t be fooled. It isn’t therapeutic efficacy, but ego and greed that determine what cancer treatment options are available to the vast majority of patients, and I will demonstrate the evidence here to prove my viewpoint. Patients want a cure, but they don’t realize that chemotherapy is extremely unlikely to provide it.
People want to believe in their Doctor. They want to believe in his recommendations. But when you cling to an unsubstantiated belief like chemotherapy, that’s not science. It’s dogma. When medical interventions are guided by dogma rather than solid scientific data, then health science policy has gotten ahead of health science. Such is the state of modern medicine.
“At a time of universal deceit –telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell.
Psalm 27:1-3, The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.
