How Dr. Sebi Reminded Us That Food Is The Only Medicine We've Ever Needed

How many times have you tried a new diet that didn't work for you?

How did you come across this diet?

And if you thought it'd work, WHY?

Too often do we find ourselves adopting lifestyles that "look" like they will do just as much good for us as the girl we saw in the video or on the commercial. That's the essence of consumerism.

Take consumerism and sickness, mix them together, and wallah! You have Big Pharma down your throat with medical bills up to your nose.

It should be clear that major pharmaceutical companies don't give a rat's bottom about your health unless it means that they're taking your money and digging your grave very similar to drug overdose, the leading cause of death for Americans under 50.

Conventional medicine only makes some us of sicker while lack of education on food science leaves many of us absolutely clueless. This is why it is up to us to take control where we can—our diet.

According to a world-wide known healer, Dr. Sebi, food is the only medicine we need. Through food, herbs, and holistic healthy practices, each individual can turn his or her life around for the better. More specifically, by eating foods that are genetically optimal for our bodies, we can reverse disease and increase longevity.

Who is Dr. Sebi?
Dr. Sebi, born Alfredo Bowman in Honduras in 1933, is known around the world as a natural healer and vegetarian herbalist who believed that food could and should be used as the body’s medicine. Through food, he believed, one could cure herself of all disease.

Bowman himself suffered from illnesses such as obesity, asthma, diabetes, and impotency (erectile dysfunction). He was a self-educated man, having never attended formal schooling, who emphasized the importance of thinking outside the box of traditional western medicine, which could not cure him of his sickness. In 1985, Dr. Sebi, director of USHA Research Institute, began posting ads in publications like the New York Amsterdam News newspaper about USHA Research Institute’s success in finding a cure for AIDS and other diseases. He was arrested on February 10, 1987 - two years later - for practicing medicine without a license, selling products that were not FDA-approved, and making “fraudulent” claims about his ability to cure a disease that was said to have no cure. Forced to appear in front of the Brooklyn Supreme Court, Bowman was found not guilty by a jury of six men and six women on two counts of practicing medicine without a license. In fact, Dr. Sebi provided witnesses who testified that as a result of USHA’s dietary program, they had experienced improved health.

Before Bowman’s death in 2016 after being taken into custody while traveling in Honduras, he helped dozens of individuals change their diets and ultimately their lives by sharing his non-textbook knowledge about food and its effect on the body. There are numerous recordings of his teachings and interviews he did. Having worked with people like Steven Seagal, Michael Jackson, and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes (she was actually visiting Sebi in Honduras when she died in a car accident), Dr. Sebi is known to those who choose to know him.

What is the Electric Food Diet?
Dr. Sebi continuously shared his discoveries about food, creating a dietary program that he found to be “consistent with the African genetic structure.” The foods that he recommend are non-hybrids as Bowman explains in “Eat to Live” that hybrid foods require starch in order to be bound together. Starch is an acid.

The Electric Food Diet, also known as the Alkaline Diet, is based on the premise that foods can influence the body’s pH levels. This essentially means that the foods you eat can either make the body’s environment more acidic or more basic (alkaline), where acidic means a pH in the range of 1 to 6 and alkaline means a pH in the range of 8 to 14 - a pH of 7 is considered balanced. Since disease thrives in acidic environments where excess mucus begins to spread throughout the body, depleting vital organs in the body of oxygen, Dr. Sebi believed that one could reverse this process by removing blood and starch from her diet.

Below is the nutritional guide provided by Dr. Sebi that lists all the vegetables, fruits, herbs and other foods consistent with this diet:

Should you adopt the Electric Food/Alkaline diet?
Yes and no.
Dr. Sebi was a firm believer that textbooks could not provide the knowledge that one’s own self-discovery and experimentation could. Although Dr. Sebi was, and still is, trusted by many and has cured dozens of illness, it is always important to do your own research before adopting any type of diet that requires a drastic transformation in your perspective of food.
I ask myself this, “If my granny lived to be 98 years old and in her last years I watched her still eat turkey necks down to the bone, what does this mean for me?”
So, challenge yourself first with questions you can’t answer. If you decide that the Electric Food diet is something that could help you, start with baby steps. Find support groups in your neighborhood and online. Check out Ty's Conscious Kitchen where you can find Dr. Sebi inspired recipes created by Tyrone Pendland II, chef and creator of Ty’s Conscious Kitchen. Again, do your own research as it will enhance your experience and make you feel confident in changing your lifestyle forever.

I took Western medicine for 8 years now and the side effects never went away. The drug is complete poison. My dr told me it was safe and to not read the negative reviews online. I listened to him and I completely regret it. There is a reason why there are huge Facebook groups now with 1000s of members discussing being damaged from this drug. but just a few months on my healing journey with natural herbs from @dr_ediale_herbs my health is back to normal with no side effects.
