A world-famous doctor who offered her naturopathic services for free was forced to close her clinic after the Philippine equivalent of the FDA went after her and she received a wave of death threats.
Dr. Farrah Agustin-Bunch went to a conventional medical school, but the fact that doctors are encouraged to prescribe treatments to patients that haven’t been scientifically proven to be safe and effective made her uneasy and ultimately pushed her toward naturopathy.
Her late father was the famous herbalist sir Antonio Augustin, who established the first natural cancer treatment center in the Philippines in 2000.
She eventually decided to open up her own practice. Her clinic in Victoria, two hours from Manila, was frequented by celebrities, business people and even royalty from the Philippines and beyond. She never charges patients for their visits or exams, believing that everyone has the right to see a doctor at no cost.
Dr. Bunch has successfully treated conditions like lupus, hypertension, diabetes, and other problems. She has even successfully treated stage 4 cancers. In total, she has treated more than 100,000 patients since becoming a doctor.
She has also come up with protocols based on clinically and scientifically proven methods that make use of medicinal plants, extracts, herbs, and minerals. Some variations of her immunotherapy treatment are even used at some of America’s biggest cancer treatment centers.
Are her successes threatening the profits of big pharmas?
Her impressive treatments probably weren’t well received by the pharmaceutical and medical industries, and she likely drew further ire through her website, which offers up more than 20,000 pages of scientific evidence to inform and educate her patients.
In addition to demonstrating the effectiveness and safety of immunotherapy, it also exposes the lack of scientific evidence for conventional treatments like radiation, chemotherapy, and most surgeries.
She recently announced to her 3 million Facebook followers that she had to temporarily close her operations after the lives of her patients, children and herself were threatened if she remained open.
She stated that several cases were filed against her after government offices and agencies received complaints from unnamed medical societies.
She said that her clinic and property were raided, and she has been prohibited from manufacturing health products, administering them to patients, and distributing them. If she continues to help patients right now, she could lose her license to practice medicine and her career as a doctor would come to an end.
“I was also told that if my outpatient clinic was still open tomorrow, that I would be arrested and my license to practice medicine would be revoked.”
Today, the lives my children, my patients and I were threatened if I remain open. I need to temporarily close for the safety of my kids and patients. This breaks my heart to do this.This time will also give me the opportunity to deal with the many issues coming from government offices and agencies initiated from the complaints filed by certain medical societies. These resulted in the filing of several cases against me, raids of my property and clinic as well as a prohibition now for me to manufacture health products. I’m also unable to currently administer and distribute them to my patients. My license to practice medicine could be revoked if I continue my service to patients right now. I cannot provide Boston C or any other of my inventions to any patients until these government issues are resolved. To do so could end my career as a doctor. I’m cooperating with the government offices and agencies and resorting to all remedies available to me under the law to remedy this. I deeply apologize for the inconvenience and suffering that this could cause many of you and your loved ones. This is not what I want to happen to my patients. It saddens me beyond measure. It’s my sincere hope that we can reopen at the soonest possible time so that I can continue to serve and care for you all.

She said that she’s cooperating with the government agencies and using legal remedies to help fix the situation. She apologized to her patients for the inconvenience and suffering this situation could cause for them and said that she hopes to reopen as soon as possible so she can continue helping people.
A tearful Dr. Bunch added in her video message:
“If something bad happens to me, please remember that I fought for my fellow Filipinos to have choices in their healthcare.”
It’s an unfortunate turn of events for the patients who rely on her treatment, but it’s not surprising.
Naturopathy, homeopathy, chiropractic, acupuncture, and other so-called “alternative” medicine areashave long been under attack by conventional doctors, pharmaceutical companies, and the FDA in the U.S. and countries around the world.
As authorities continue to bully trained professionals who are only trying to heal people, medical freedom is slipping away from us and few people are noticing and speaking out about it.
