DR. SEBI was born Alfredo Bowman on November 26, 1933, in the village of Ilanga in Spanish Honduras. He was a self-taught pathologist, herbalist, biochemist, and naturalist. He studied and personally observed herbs in America, Latin America, Africa, and the Caribbean, and developed a unique approach to healing with herbs firmly rooted in over 30 years of practical experience called the African Bio Mineral Balance.
Sebi came to the United States as a self-educated man who was diagnosed with asthma, diabetes, impotency, and obesity. After unsuccessful treatments with conventional doctors, Sebi was lead to an herbalist in Mexico. Finding great healing success from all his ailments, he began creating natural vegetation cell food compounds geared for inter-cellular cleansing and the revitalization of all the cells that make up the human body.
He gave advice to some notable celebrities including Lisa Lopez, Steven Seagal, John Travolta, Eddie Murphy and Michael Jackson. Inspired by the personal healing experience and knowledge he gained, he began sharing the compounds with others, which gave birth to the USHA Research Institute, Dr. Sebi LLC, and the Usha Healing Village located in La Ceiba, Honduras.
Bowman considered himself an African, not an “African-Honduran”, but an African inHonduras.
DR. SEBI’S METHODOLOGY
“According to Western medical research, diseases are a result of the host being infected with a “germ”, “virus”, or “bacteria”. In their approach to treating these “infestations”, inorganic, carcinogenic chemicals are employed. Our research immediately uncovers flaws in their premise through basic deductive reasoning. By consistently utilizing the same premise and methods, they have consistently yielded ineffective results. In essence, in the 400-year tradition of the European philosophy of medicine, their approach in treating disease has yet to produce any cures.
In contrast, as we examine the African approach to disease, it diametrically opposes the present Western approach. Specifically, the African Bio-Mineral Balance refutes the germ/virus/bacteria premise. Our research reveals that all manifestation of disease finds it genesis when and where the mucous membrane has been compromised. For example, if there is excess mucous in the bronchial tubes, the disease is Bronchitis; if it is in the lungs, the disease is Pneumonia; in the pancreatic duct, it is Diabetes; in the joints Arthritis. All of the African Bio-Mineral Balance compounds are comprised of natural plants; which means its constitution is of an alkaline nature.
This is important and instrumental in our success in reversing pathologies because dis-ease can only exist in an environment that is acidic; thus it is inconsistent to utilize inorganic substances when treating dis-ease because they are of an acid base. Only consistent use of natural botanical remedies will effectively cleanse and detoxify a diseased body, reversing it to its intended alkaline system of nutrition goes even further. In addition to removing the accumulation of years of toxins, the African Bio-mineral Balance replaces depleted minerals and rejuvenates damaged cell tissue eroded by the acid, diseased state. The primary organs of elimination are the skin, liver, gall-bladder, lymph glands, kidneys and the colon. If all toxins are eliminated from the above-mentioned organs they will be recycled throughout the entire body, manifesting disease. Eventually, the body breaks down in the weakest organs due to its inability to dispel the influence of toxins. The colon is the most important organ and must be cleansed by detoxifying before any disease can be reversed. If the colon is the only organ cleansed and detoxified the other major organs will be left toxic, thus leaving the disease in the body.
One must consume life – not Death – to maintain and sustain oneself.”
– Dr. Sebi | Holistic Healer
Dr. Sebi manifested the “African Bio Mineral Balance.” His methodology involved using a natural alkaline plant food diet and herbs to alkalize the body to return the alkaline body back to a state of homeostasis.
The diet consists of only natural alkaline vegetables, fruits, nuts, alkaline grains, and legumes, which would alkalize and remove mucus from the body. Along with the diet he also used natural alkaline herbs to clean the body’s cells on the cellular, and intra-cellular level.
The alkaline diet is based on the premise that disease can only exist in an acidic environment. The body works to maintain a slightly alkaline 7.4 pH environment in the blood.
The blood is the point of equilibrium for homeostasis and when the body becomes too acidic the body will borrow alkaline minerals and compounds from bones and fluids through the body to put into the blood to keep its pH stable.
This jeopardizes the health of different areas of the body and leads to the development of dis-ease.
Drinking plenty of spring water a day is essential to making this alkaline diet work. Dr. Sebi suggests drinking a gallon of spring water a day. The adult body consists of 70% water. All of the body’s metabolic functions need adequate amounts of water to function properly. Spring water is a natural alkaline water and it best supports the hydration and natural ratio of electrolytes in the body.
The Dr Sebi food list is very specific and excludes many whole-food plant-based foods.
Dr. Sebi recommends avoiding hybrid foods (plants and their fruits made by unnaturally cross-pollinating two or more plants) because they change the genetic structure, electrical composition, and pH balance to its detriment.
One such food is garlic, a plant food we are accustomed to eating but is man-made and starch-based!
I’ve included the Nutritional Guide below, which I’ve been following for almost a year now. Since changing to an alkaline diet, I no longer experience back and joint pain; my mind and thoughts have become more clear, I haven’t been sick, I can go on and on.
To begin cleansing the organs of the body, you can take these powerful alkaline herbs that Dr. Sebi gave his patients.
- Burdock Root – blood and liver cleanser, diuretic,
- Dandelion– blood and liver cleanser, diuretic
- Elderberry (Sambucus Nigra) – combats mucus buildup, colds, HIV
- Sea Moss – Irish Moss (seaweed) – vitamin and mineral supplement
- Sarsaparilla – blood purifier, diuretic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory
