Dr. Farrah, Nagpasalamat kay Sen. Sotto sa DOH Deliberation Clears Statement mula sa DOH Usec sa False Claims sa kanyang Klinika

Sa panahon ng deliberasyon ng budget ng Department of Health na ginanap sa Senado noong Nobyembre 14, nagkaroon ng pagkakataon si Senate President Vicente "Tito" Sotto para tanongin ang FDA at DOH tungkol sa kaso ni Dr. Farrah.

Para sa kaalaman ng lahat tungkol kay Dr. Farrah, ang kanyang Natural Medical Center sa Tarlac ay isinara ng mga awtoridad at inakusahan na nagbebenta ng mga unauthorized supplements. Ang kanyang klinika ay pansamantalang isinara para sa outpatient clinic.

Noong Oktubre 2018, sumulat si Dr. Farrah ng isang Open Letter para kay Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte hinggil sa kanyang klinika at nakiusap para ipagpatuloy ang pagtulong sa kanyang mga pasyente.

Ang mga opisyal ng Food and Drug Administration ay sumalakay at ipinasara ang Natural Medical Center ng Buwig sa Victoria, Tarlac. Ang wellness center ay kilala para sa mga supplement na kung saan ay di-umano nakakatulong sa paggamot ng cancer, arthritis, at iba pang mga sakit.

Sa panahon ng deliberation, tinanong ni Senate President Tito Sotto ang DOH Usec. na si Eric Domingo tungkol sa kaso ni Dr. Farrah Agustin-Bunch. Tanong ni Sotto, kung bakit kinakailangang i-shutdown ang medical center ni Dr. Farrah, kung maraming mga pasyente ang nakinabang sa kanyang klinika at gamot.

"Magandang nag-benepisyo, maganda ang naging resulta, siya ay nakarehistro sa inyo .. Ang nag-complain lang ay mga medikal na societies, bakit ang mga albularyo, hindi nila nag-uusap, bakit marami ang nakikinabang, nagreklamo sila." ito ang naging tugon ni DOH Usec. Domingo na tinutulan ni Dr. Farrah Agustin-Bunch sa kanyang post sa Facebook dahil sa maling impormasyon lalo na sa mga sinabi ni Domingo na may mga pasyente na nagreklamo rin kay Dr. Bunch.

"Philippine Institute of Alternative Health Care has to set standards, in this case it was being sold as medicine it requires a certificate of product registration. There was a meeting between Dr. Farrah Bunch and the FDA. Dr. Farrah has to settle the price being imposed and she may again apply for a license to operate her pharmacy and registration of her product that me be sold in the public. "

Nag-post si Dr. Farrah sa kanyang Facebook upang linawin ang tanong ni Sen. Tito Sotto at kontrahin ang pahayag ni DOH Usec. Domingo.

"My heartfelt gratitude goes to our President of the Senate of the Philippines, Senator Vicente "Tito" C. Sotto III Dearest Senator Sotto, I am so very grateful that you addressed the issue of the illegal closure of my facility by the combined union of FDA & DOH during DOH budget deliberations today. I’ve been begging and pleading for help and you answered the call and in doing so, many thousands of patients' prayers.

You Sir were very well informed regarding the situation, including your knowledge of my product efficacy and extensive testing. I am overjoyed that the pleas of patients are finally being heard. There were a few serious issues during that meeting today which must be noted. DOH USEC Eric Domingo falsely claimed that the complaint that originated to close my facility came from patients. You corrected him and properly noted that the complaint was filed against me by the Presidents of 5 separate medical societies.

The Philippine College of Physicians, Philippine Rheumatology Association, Philippine Society of Medical Oncology, Philippine Society for Microbiology and Infection Diseases and the Philippine Society of Nephrology. They forum shopped their complaint around, which was denied at PRC since there was no aggrieved party. It was dismissed at DOH with no aggrieved party and no jurisdiction. It was reportedly denied at The Philippine Medical Association as well. Finally, they got a friendly FDA to do their bidding.

This group of medical society presidents was led by Dr. Kenneth Hartigan-Go of Dengvaxia fame, who coincidentally is the former acting FDA Director-General.

USEC Eric Domingo stated that I did not have a license to operate as a medical facility. He failed to mention to you that I’m not required to obtain a license to operate an outpatient medical clinic, nor is any other Doctor in the Philippines.

He also failed to mention my facility is also my home. USEC Eric Domingo falsely claimed that I have a Pharmacy, yet 2 separate FDA raids demonstrated the presence of zero pharmaceutical products. Attorney Sig Fortun has clearly illustrated this in our suits against the DOH, FDA and Director General Charade Puno.

Usec Eric Domingo falsely claimed that only the alleged pharmacy was closed at my facility. The entire facility was ordered closed. One needs to look no further than the FDA posted tarpaulin which clearly states that "The Dr. Farrah Bunch Natural Medical Center of Lot 9, Maluid, Victoria, Tarlac City is hereby ordered CLOSED..." The FDA does not have the authority to close medical facilities under Republic Act no. 9711, also known as the FDA act. Yet that didn’t stop FDA Director Charade Puno from making it happen.

USEC Eric Domingo falsely claimed that my products were being sold as medicines. My products are nutritional products which are labeled clearly stating “no approved therapeutic claims.” USEC Eric Domingo falsely claimed there was a meeting between me and the FDA. My sister in law and one of my lawyers met with an FDA lawyer.

USEC Eric Domingo falsely claimed that there was an agreement that had been reached. There has been no agreement reached at all. Was USEC Eric Domingo under oath when he made these statements to you? It was reminiscent of Director-General Puno’s misleading testimony in Congress about me while under oath.

It seems that whenever FDA or DOH personnel get questioned about me and my situation under oath, that the truth just flies right out the window. Please ask Sec. Duque about the closure order that was approved for my facility on July 30th. It was widely disseminated online but never served. The problem is that DOH doesn’t have jurisdiction over outpatient clinics either. The enforcement officer from DOH knew this and refrained from attempting to enforce an unlawful order. Please ask about that.

Senator Sotto, my facility was stormed and illegally closed by roughly 50 heavily armed men in a tactical “shock and awe” military style operation like I was a terrorist. It was a complete failure of due process and observance of our laws. The sick and hopeful became the helpless, the crying and the dying.

This illegal gung-ho operation cost countless thousands of Filipinos the Universal Health Care they desire, that I was already providing to them for FREE in large part, since most of my patients are poor. I am so grateful that you are now investigating this travesty. Our government mandates of the TAMA Act of 1997 are directed at promotion and protection of traditional and alternative medicine in the Philippines, but practice is really just a joke.

I’ve worked tirelessly to promote effective, natural treatment options for patients while everyone including PITAHC sits and watches the FDA used as a weapon of mass destruction for Pharmaceutical interests against me, with the PNP being the hammer that pounds the nail.

French pharmaceutical giant Sanofi Pasteur was fined P100,000 (around $1,850 USD) by Director General Charade Puno of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and was not allowed to sell the Dengvaxia dengue vaccine for one year. (That is a fine of about 1000 pesos or $18.50 for each child whose death has been attributed to Dengvaxia thus far.) No criminal charges filed against Sanofi to date. (1) I was fined over P1,072,000 (around $20,000 USD) and given a permanent revocation of my (LTO) License To Operate as a food manufacturer, without a single complaint having been received at FDA by a patient. But, FDA filed criminal charges against me.

I’m forced to spend a fortune to sue the FDA for the illegal marching orders given by Mrs. Charade Puno while she gets to use government lawyers to defend her illegal actions.

I’ve been forced into hiding because of death threats attributed by NICA sources to “senior FDA enforcers”, and the PNP still hasn’t investigated. Even Police Chief Sonny Silva of Victoria Tarlac hasn’t started an investigation in spite of the blotters filed and evidences given. Multiple DOH Undersecretaries have visited my facility and reviewed my patient files.

One even emphatically noted that, “We need to get DOH to promote the hell out of this!” I wrote to President Duterte and stated that “The pursuit of truth in modern medicine is obscured by greed, profit and power. In the book of Genesis, Esau sold his birthright for a bowl of stew and some bread. Today, medical doctors are selling their name, dignity and credibility for a free lunch from Pharmaceutical companies.

I vocally object to this and am one of many medical heretics who demand patient centered care instead of profit centered care. Being a doctor is not about how many patients I can see, but how many I can see and care for very well.” I agree with the need for Universal Health Care for Filipinos. 

But, at the same time our citizens are aggressively being denied natural treatment options. Does this mean Universal Health Care should only be for highly profitable areas of medical and health treatment? Should the only participants be large hospitals and multi-national pharmaceutical companies? Why does the current draft of the National Integrated Cancer Control Act completely ignore natural medicine? How can we be responsive to the needs of the people if we limit their choices to profit driven treatments? Isn’t it time that Philippine innovation is lauded instead of shelved and hidden away? Why must we always follow the lead of first world countries, especially when they're wrong? Case in point: Dengvaxia.

The Philippines bio diversity is a valuable medicine cabinet for the world. Isn’t it time we Filipinos took our rightful place as leaders in Medicine? I thank you for your time with all of my heart Senator Sotto. I also thank you for showing me how a real leader responds to those in need. May God bless you beyond compare.

With great humility,
Dr. Farrah Agustin-Bunch, M.D. (1) https://bit.ly/2CsVDFC #WeSupportDrFarra#WeSupportNaturalMedicine #WeNeedBostonC #supportnaturalmedicine #hearourvoices #DrF #DrFarrah #drfarrahmd #cancercure #bostonc #NOtoMDivision #immunotherapy#naturaloncology#SupportDrFarrah #charadepuno"
