GOD’S CREATION can be explained by science and the medical field, a US-based Filipina doctor writes in a new book.

The book, titled “The Human Body: God’s Greatest Creation,” took two years for author Angelita Frando to complete. It discusses the anatomy of the human body in relation to God and His steps of creation, and the stories of saints.

“The purpose of this book is to give the reader an overview of how great God is and at the same time, the reason why He made human beings,” Frando told the Varsitarian.

Frando considers her faith and spirituality as her edge, as “not all doctors think of discussing spirituality with their patients.”

“I think medicine should not just be restricted with medication. You can heal people just by listening to them. That’s what I learned in functional medicine. I wanted to serve God using my profession. I wanted to prove that science can explain God’s creation,” she said.

Frando called on the faithful to read the Bible and the stories of saints.

“The Catholic faith is a very good religion. The Bible is a beautiful book; asset iyan sa atin,” Frando said.

The book, published by St. Paul’s Philippines, was launched last Sept. 16 at the SMX Convention Center.

Frando, a graduate of the University of the Philippines-Diliman, migrated to the United States to practice medical acupuncture and functional medicine.

She obtained board certifications from the American Board of Family Medicine, American Academy of Medical Acupuncture, American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, and the American Academy of Functional Medicine before retiring in 2015.

Frando is working on two more books. Proceeds from the books will be given to the San Lorenzo Ruiz Charity in Bulacan.
