Alfred Bowman, also known as Dr. Sebi, has passed over in Honduras. Though it may have indeed been an intentional murder to silence this great healer of holistic medicine, what I wish to focus on is Dr. Sebi’s accomplishments so that his knowledge spreads to even more people on how to take health and healing into one’s own hands.
Takes On The FDA and Wins
In 1985 Dr. Sebi placed an ad in three different newspapers which read:
“Aids has been cured by the Usha Research Institute, and we specialize in cures for Sickle Cell, Lupus, Blindness, Herpes, Cancer and others.”
The ad was running still 2 years later until the New York Attorney General served Dr. Sebi with an arrest warrant. In court, Dr. Sebi was charged with practicing medicine without a license, selling products not approved by the FDA, and claiming to cure AIDS and other diseases, which was seen by the court as a fraudulent claim.
Dr. Sebi was asked to bring one person to court as proof for every disease he claimed to cure. He ended up bringing in over 70 patients as his living proof and Dr. Sebi was dismissed after the judge spoke more in-depth with Sebi and the patients.
Dr. Sebi’s Philosophy and Methods
Dr. Sebi, a pathologist, herbalist, biochemist and naturalist, believed that the root of all disease was excessive mucous–that the mucous was the effect of an out of balance biochemical state within the body.
“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.” [The foods we recommend] 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 disease can only exist in an environment that is acid; thus it is inconsistent to utilize inorganic substances when treating disease 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 state.
Dr. Sebi also suggested that in addition to a plant based diet, periods of fasting as a way to flush out toxins and allow the body to rebuild itself upon clean, healthy and vibrant cells.
Dr. Sebi also discusses much about the African bio-mineral therapy program, which is intended for all people because of the human genome originally beginning in Africa.
What we suggest readers to do with this information is share it with others who might benefit from it. Also to research his work and research fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices and plant compounds that help a person return to health. One that I highly recommend looking into is called fulvic acid. It is the most potent known anti-oxidant, and flushes the body of toxins and metabolic waste.
What are some other herbs, fruits or plant compounds that you use to stay healthy? Let us know in the comments section so that we all can continue to share and collaborate our wealth of knowledge and information with each other as a way to help us all learn, grow and evolve.
