There is no Law yet to officially recognize Hilot as a Doctor here in the Philippines, but an International Law recognize Chiropractor as a Doctor so as the Acupuncturist.
Doctor Catherine Sy Luib, who is a Chiropractor and Acupuncturist whose Family roots are from Cebu and Dinagat Islands, Surigao Del Norte migrated to the United States and earn her Doctorate Degree in Chiropractic.
Doc Cath as she prefered to be called is a FYLPRO Champion of San Diego, California, USA.
She learned Hilot Academy through Facebook, and as delegate for the Filipino Young Leaders Program that is based in the United States, she wanted to have a Legacy project of reintroducing Hilot to the Filipino Communities in the US.
Doc Cath arrived in the Philippines on November 8 and immediately she immersed her self into a medical mission in Sta. Rosa, Laguna providing the people there with Alternative Health Care Services through Acupuncture and Chiropractic Adjustment.
And on the 10th of November, Doc Cath arrived to our place and started her transformative Journey in learning Hilot as the Philippine indigenous healing arts and science.
We had fun during the learning sessions. We started off with Tawas then an actual work of Herbal Identification to Mt. Balagbag. We have shared also the Knowledge of Baybayin. Cook some Hilot Recipe for health and wellness; and the actual demonstration and giving of Hilot.
Indeed, learning Hilot with Doc Cathy is fun as we have opened up new path ways to learn Hilot to our future Students and fellow advocate in Hilot Academy.
With these, we congratulate Doctor Catherine Sy Luib for completing her course as Hilot Binabaylan.
