One word: repolyo (cabbage). Thousands of Filipinos are in on the inside joke and if you’ve seen cabbage memes on your timeline and you’re confused, we’re here to explain.
Famous YouTuber Doc Adam reacted to a video of Dr. Farrah Bunch where she claims that a simple cabbage compress can help with “anything swollen in your body,” including (but not limited to) dermatitis and arthritis. Dr. Farrah specializes in natural medicine which is great and all but the idea that cabbages can help you heal from something major did not sit right with the netizens. The entire thing gave birth to “repolyo memes” and here are some of the funniest ones.
Healing for Manila Bay
The Manila Bay dolomite sand is begging for help, send an army or repolyo!
The answer to heartbreak
If we only knew about this a long time ago, it would’ve saved a whole lot of broken hearts.
Rumors say you could wear these for decades and they never wear out.

And if it can speed up the internet and reduce swelling in body parts, maybe it can heal your stress too.
Desperate times call for desperate repolyo measures.
So that’s what it means
If you thought that chicken scratch said ‘paracetamol’ well you thought wrong.
This game was ahead of its time
Seeking natural medicine is not a bad thing but you have to be wise enough to distinguish the point where leaves and herbs won’t work. Garlic and Vitamin C herbal tea alone won’t cure cancer in the late stages. This is why Doc Adam has always encouraged his subscribers to seek out professional opinions and treatment when it comes to one’s health. To Dr. Farrah’s credit, there is actually such a thing as cabbage compress (thanks, Google). Would you be willing to try it?
