Hello family! I hope that my latest post finds each of you in the best of health and spirits. Coincidentally, health and spirit play a major role in today’s topic. I’m sure most of us have heard of herbalist and healer Dr. Sebi. For many of us the doctor has taken on the proportions of an urban legend. He was first brought to my attention (and many others’) after the tragic death of superstar Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez.
Lisa was a vivacious, young member of the famous singing trio TLC. According to a New York Times article, the singer was in Honduras “working on a documentary about Ms Lopez’s spiritual journey.” It was reported later that she was driving with seven other passengers when she lost control of her vehicle and crashed off-road. She reportedly died at the scene, while the seven other passengers were treated in La Ceiba hospital. We know now that Lisa took frequent trips to see Dr. Sebi (who was considered her guru) in Honduras for spiritual and physical cleansing. Her fated trip and final days are featured in her posthumous documentary, “Last Days of Left Eye”. Soon after her passing, unflattering reports began to surface detailing her visits and the methods used by her guru; Dr. Sebi. Simultaneously, many other celebs and non-celebs came out with their own testimonies praising the healer’s work. The all-powerful and profitable medical industry quickly labeled Dr. Sebi as a quack who practiced a ridiculous pseudo-science. Their articles even called his herbal treatments "unpalatable potions". This is when I completely tuned in!
If there is anything that I have surely learned from my life’s research and experience, it is that when a large group of industrialists and capitalists go out of their way to deem an individuals ideas and methods as useless, it’s well worth delving deeper. No adequate time or money has been allocated by the industry to research the findings of herbalists or holistic approaches to what they have taught us (the public) are scientific dilemmas. Common sense teaches us that science came from nature . . . not the other way around. Big Pharma and the so-called scientific community consider it a waste of time and profit to ever seriously research the effectiveness of natural treatments. However, they seem to have no reservations about spending millions of dollars on research and ads for new, expensive medications and coercing doctors to subscribe them to their patients. WHAT HAS MEDICAL SCIENCE ACTUALLY CURED IN THE LAST CENTURY? Please don’t get a treatment confused with a cure. We all should be well aware by now that no monetary profit lies in the cure of illness, but there are enormous profits in treatments. The true elements of nature cannot be patented. You can’t get a US government patent on the dirt or the grass, but you can if you alter its nature. It must be processed in some form and then the process can be patented. This is where we get things like seedless grapes or hybrid plants and animals that cannot reproduce. Anything that cannot reproduce is not of nature but of man. The average physician today knows more about the pharmaceutical aspect of the business than the healing aspect. They become “pill peddlers” in a chain of profiteers. If they were truly the appointed champions of our priceless health and well-being, then wouldn’t they resort to any means necessary . . . leave no stone unturned in the search for cures? It is my belief that the Industrial Revolution, as awe-inspiring as it was, seriously damaged our spiritual connection. It lessened our dependence on each other and thrust us blindly into the ills of competition. This led the way to a new plague called greed and a new type of slavery designed for the masses.
The true heads of industry follow rules and allegiances meant to remove the individual from the equation when making decisions concerning profitability. It is individual-vs- group mentality. The actions that you would perform as a part of a group are often actions you would not perform alone. Their ideal patient pool would be the entire world, which is why we have new diagnoses and new pills EVERY YEAR! Do you know ANYONE who is not on some type of pill? Other than infants and very small children, I don’t either. How would these industries put a secure lock on their customer base? Dare I say that they would use what they call incurable diseases? A lifetime of treatment is a customer for life to the industry. Our ancestors survived for generations without disease and they had no pharmaceutical drugs.
This is where I again interject and reemphasize the power of the individual. We must demand of the FDA and Big Pharma that as much funding be used for the testing of natural methods as is now used to develop and sell the ever popular pills. Healers, herbalists, and even other doctors have come forward with natural treatments they claim and have documented proof that cure several so-called incurable diseases including cancer. While researching these individuals, I found that they all had similar devices used against them and their findings. The medical industry quickly labeled them quacks but failed to adequately test their proposed methods. They were all taken to court and all produced former patients who had documented proof of their illnesses and subsequent cures. Although individual case outcomes varied, they were all black-listed, died mysteriously or forced to stop saying that they had cures for these diseases. Incredibly, all of these individuals wanted their treatments and cures to be provide to the public for free . . . as in not for profit. Later, they were offered money for their recipes and treatments. Upon their refusal to sell, they were banned from practicing medicine for violating FDA guidelines. The only FDA guidelines that we could find dealing with natural treatments are under the heading “Dietary Supplements”. This shows no respect for the healing properties inherent within nature. Diet is the single, most important factor of our survival. We should know what to put into our mouths and what not to.
We must UNLEARN the fear and competition that we have been taught by the industrialist and capitalists! Actually the two terms are synonymous.
*POWER OF THE INDIVIDUAL
“No disease including cancer can exist in an alkaline environment.”
Dr. O. Warburg
Dr. Warburg was born in Freiburg Germany in 1883 to the illustrious and affluent Warburg clan. His father (Emil Gabriel Warburg) was a well-known German physicist and during his career was also professor of physics at the universities of Strasbourg, Freiburg and Berlin. Many of his former students became Nobel Prize winners. Among these were James Frank (Nobel Prize in Physics, 1925), Eduard Gruneisen, Robert Pohl, Erich Regener, Hans von Euler-Chelpin (Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 1929) and of course his son Otto (Nobel Prize for Physiology, 1931). Amazingly, Otto was nominated for the Nobel Prize an astonishing 47 times through the course of his career. Dr. Warburg’s mother (Elisabeth Gaertner) was from a Protestant family of bankers and civil servants. Otto served as an officer in the Uhlan during World War I and studied Chemistry under Emil Fischer and received his doctorate in 1906. He also earned a doctor of medicine degree in 1911, while studying under Ludolf von Krehl. Albert Einstein who was already a friend of his father, convinced the young doctor to return to academia after his stint in the cavalry. In 1918, Warburg was appointed professor at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Cell Physiology, founded the previous year by donations from the Rockefeller Foundation. It was here, that he began investigating the metabolism of tumors and the respiration of cells, with emphasis on cancer cells. His “Discovery of the Nature and Mode of Action of the Respiratory Enzyme,” led to his 1931 Nobel Prize. The prize came after receiving 46 nominations over a period of nine years beginning in 1923.
When the Nazis came to power in 1933 many Jews were removed from their professional positions. Among those removed was Dr. Warburg. Since the doctor had a Protestant mother and a father who converted to Protestantism, he was allowed to continue his research after being banned from teaching. By September 1942 he was granted German status. Hitler’s regime was known to make exceptions for Jews who they felt were vital to the improvement of the German race. In May 1935 and again in November 1944, Hitler had a polyp removed from his left vocal cord by Dr. Carl von Eicken. The dictator’s fear of this turning cancerous was attributed to the reasons that Dr. Warburg was allowed to survive.
Dr. Warburg’s work in plant physiology, cell metabolism and oncology made him one of the forefathers of systems biology. The doctor hypothesized that cancers (whether malignant or tumorous) are caused by the fact that these cells generate energy by the non-oxidative breakdown of glucose (glycolysis). Healthy cells, however, generate energy from the oxidative breakdown of pyruvate. Pyruvate is the end result of glycolysis and is oxidized within the mitochondria. Therefore, according to Dr. Warburg carcinogenesis stems from the lowering of mitochondrial respiration. This hypothesis was articulated in his medical paper “The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer” which he presented in a lecture at the meeting of Nobel Laureates on June 30, 1966 at Lindau Lake Constance, Germany.
“The prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar.”
In other words, the good doctor was telling us that while normal cells require oxygen for survival and reproduction, cancer cells can survive without oxygen by turning sugar into energy. Cells that don’t need oxygen to survive are called anaerobes. Dr. Warburg suggests that “cancer cells live in hypoxic, very low oxygen and acidic conditions and derive energy from sugars by fermenting them the way yeast does.” The progression of cancer causes the body’s PH level to drop as the body becomes more acidic. Without this acidity level increasing, the cancer cells have no sugars to convert to sufficient energy for growth and replication. The PH scale ranges from 1 (highly acidic) to 14 (highly alkaline). The body’s normal PH range is between 7.35 and 7.45. Many subsequent studies have reinforced the fact that no known disease can survive in an alkaline environment. This is the basis for much scientific and natural study. We’ll examine these hypotheses, the social and moral implications, and the people affected.
“A society that keeps cures a secret so they can continue to sell medication for huge profits is not a society but a huge mental asylum.”
Now let’s delve into the late great Dr. Alfredo Darrington Bowman. He was born on November 26, 1933 in the village of Ilanga in Spanish Honduras. Dr. Sebi was a self- educated, licensed, well-respected herbalist and healer. To those that knew him well, he as a pathologist, biochemist and naturalist. Receiving no formal schooling, he credits his grandmother “Mama Hay” with his training and spiritual guidance. Like many others in the region, his family decided to forgo Western education. Instead he was taught the ways of his ancestors. So Sebi was taught about nature and his place in the natural balance of life. Dr. Sebi studied and learned the use of herbs in North America, Central and South America, Africa and the Caribbean. His methods and approach to healing are rooted in techniques far older than science or modern medicine.
Upon arriving in the United States at age 20, Sebi was diagnosed with asthma, diabetes, impotency, mental health issues and obesity. The doctor claims that he was 291 pounds at six feet, two inches tall. Traditional treatments by conventional physicians proved unsuccessful and he was led to an herbalist in Mexico. The herbalists’ treatments were successful and he then found himself experimenting with natural compounds geared toward intracellular cleansing. Sebi called his compounds cell food and emphasized that they were for revitalization of all cells in the human body. Once the body has been cleansed, the focus could then be shifted to a mainly vegan diet, fasting and finally spiritual healing. His holistic approach of healing mind, body, and soul, along with a growing list of patient testimonials, caused the healer’s notoriety to soar. Dr. Sebi began advising and treating a number of celebrities including Lisa Lopez, John Travolta, Steven Segal, Eddie Murphy, and Michael Jackson. Rapper Nipsey Hussle had plans for creating a documentary based on Sebi's journey. His healing practice began in New York with the Fig Tree Clinic. Another practice called the USHA Research Institute soon followed in the village of Usha near La Ceiba, Honduras. The USHA Healing Village was thrust further into the media spotlight when Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez died in a tragic accident there after seeking treatment from Dr. Sebi.
*In 2001 Dr. Sebi’s USHA site stated:
Dr. SEBI and the USHA RESEARCH INSTITUTE, INC., (USHA) joyfully announce the creation of the newest component of the African Bio-Electric Cell Food Therapy – THE AFRICAN FORMULA. This formula is a product of his recent journey to Guinea, West Africa, where his presence was requested to heal ailing members of the president’s inner circle. While, there, he was introduced to healing plants unique to the area. It is from these plants that THE AFRICAN FORMULA obtains its’ very special energy.
After nearly three decades in the forefront of field research and clinical studies of genetics that address disease, USHA’s commitment to reconnecting the African with the nutritional compounds designed by nature for their maximum health continues. This approach not only complements the so-called Black people, but embraces the entire human family as well. It is causing us to return to and incorporate the African cultural tradition of using natural foods.
In the 1988 New York State vs. USHA, Inc. trial, the New York Supreme Court attempted to discredit USHA’s therapy and scientific tests of the products were ordered. The result of these tests – conducted by the Lancaster laboratory in Lancaster, Pennsylvania ( a lab selected by the State of New York to prove their case) scientifically determined USHA’s products to be “natural vegetation cell foods”.
Dr. Sebi, Founder/Director of USHA, Inc., is an Intra-Cellular Therapist, Biochemist and Naturalist. He is a native of Spanish Honduras and has personally observed, studied and catalogued herbs in Latin America, Africa, the Caribbean and the United States. His research efforts and his focus on genetics were paramount in the development of the African Bio-Electric Cell Food Therapy. USHA has used this therapy to cure such pathologies as arthritis, asthma, cancer, AIDS, diabetes, sickle cell anemia, epilepsy, herpes, heart and vital organ dysfunctions, leukemia, mental disorders, obesity, tumors and a variety of female and male problems. The African Bio-Electric Cell Food Therapy is an Intra-Cellular Therapy consisting of cellular chelation – a deep intra-cellular cleansing and cell building.
Once the ultra-bright lights of the media were cast upon Sebi and his claim of curing many incurable diseases, the naysayers came out of the woodwork like termites. This without any real testing of the healer's methodology or his patients, who had documented proof that they had been cured of their illnesses. They swiftly labeled Dr. Sebi a quack, dismissed his claims as rhetoric and began an all out campaign to discredit his reputation. Constant study and life experience has taught me that all major US industries have contingencies in place to dismiss, discredit or destroy any individuals or entities that threaten their profit. You will find that the FDA and other groups assigned by our government to protect us, are staffed and operated by the people and organizations we need protection from the most. There are clear conflicts of interests and this often seeks to exploit rather than protect the public. Big Pharma, the FDA, and physicians are now partners in the promotion, sell, and use of pharmaceutical drugs. Doctors today receive extensive training in the area of pills and never-ending treatments, but little about diet, or spiritual health. Certainly they receive no training in the use of herbs and natural treatments. Remember that there is no profit in the cure . . . only in the treatments. Again I say, if you are the protector of public health there should be no stone unturned in the search for cures. Allow me to reemphasize . . . the relationship between individual-vs-group mentality teaches us that the actions we would perform as members of a group are very often things that we would never do alone. Remove that individual from the decision making process and you diminish his moral responsibility.
In July 1987 the New York Attorney General charged Dr. Sebi with practicing medicine without a license after he placed ads in a number of newspapers. During pretrial, the judge asked the healer to provide one witness per disease that he claimed to cure. After the accused produced an astonishing 77 witnesses the judge found Sebi not guilty on all counts. The jury found that Dr. Sebi was not making medical diagnoses or prescribing medical substances. The patients who provided testimony on behalf of the healer came equipped with medical documents from other physicians that stated prior diagnoses of illnesses and subsequent documentation of no longer having these illnesses.
The Attorney General’s Office then filed a civil case against the doctor’s company:
A particularly glaring example of unsubstantiated therapeutic claims made for herbal supplements occurred a few years ago when the USHA Herbal Research Institute, run by a self-styled nutritionist calling himself "Dr. Sebi," advertised in the Village Voice and the Amsterdam News that "AIDs HAS BEEN CURED" by USHA and that they also specialize in cures for Leukemia, sickle cell anemia, herpes, lupus and other diseases. For an initial fee of $500 and $80 for each additional visit, patients were told they could be cured of AIDS and other diseases. The "cures" consisted of various herbal products, for each of which USHA made therapeutic claims. Eva Therapeutic Salve, for example, was referred to in USHA's brochure as . . . "very effective on major skin problems, in prenatal use, against poor circulation, cancer, cysts, hemorrhoids and arthritis." In fact, these claims were false. Our office filed suit against USHA and entered a consent agreement under which USHA can no longer make therapeutic claims for any of its products.
Dr. Sebi continued to sell his products as “cell food” and as word of his cures and court cases spread even further, his business actually began to expand even more.
“According to Western medical research, diseases are a result of the host being infected with a germ, virus, or bacteria. In their approach in treating these infestations, inorganic, carcinogenic chemicals are employed. Our research immediately uncovers flaws in their premise and methods, they have consistently yielded ineffective results. In essence, in the 400-year tradition of 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 its genesis when and where the mucous membrane has been compromised.”
ENDING OR BEGINNING
Dr. Alfredo Bowman reportedly was arrested by Honduran Government authorities in 2016 and charged with money laundering. He was detained at Juan Manuel Galvez de Roatan Airport along with his associate Pablo Medina Gamboa after attempting to board a plane with $37K in cash. The healer was released pending a hearing scheduled June 3, 2016. He was then rearrested by the Public Ministerio. It has been reported by family members that Sebi refused to eat the prison food which he felt was unfit for human consumption. Despite his worsening health condition, Sebi remained in custody until he passed away in transit to Vincente D’Antoni Hospital. An official investigation into his death is ongoing. The healer is survived by his 17 children.
Since Dr. Sebi’s passing, there has been added conflict because different companies are claiming to provide his original herbal treatments. He stated previously that he had been double-crossed by a portion of his family. I will allow you to conduct your own research in those areas. Our research found that only the Fig Tree Company and USHA Village were endorsed by Dr. Sebi as selling his original products.
Our bodies are naturally inclined toward homeostasis and PH balance. Nurture and nature are key components in this, but NOTHING replaces familiarity with your own body and COMMON SENSE! We must stop being lazy and perform our due diligence in terms of our health . . . mental, physical and spiritual. Placebos work because the mind is just as important as the body itself in terms of healing. Everything in the universe vibrates at a certain frequency. When we are balanced and vibrating correctly we experience a state of well-being . . . imbalance is a state of illness. Things like music used to be used as treatment for imbalance. Finding harmony and peace are essential to mental health and mental health is essential to physical health!
The elders teach us that there is nothing new under the sun. I believe this is true because we are dealing with ancient systems and methods that have been pushing us towards the same results. History repeats itself because financial systems have their own negative side effects . . . just ask the poor. When these effects show themselves over time, the system protects the financial interests of the so-called elite. The system could care less about the mental or physical health of the public at large. It is designed to quickly and efficiently discredit or dispel any perceived threat to their profits. Now don’t get it twisted family, there are actually instances when we benefit as a result of the system protecting their profits, but this is usually not the case in the long-term. During my research for this post, I discovered other doctors and healers in our not so distant past whose story is eerily similar to that of the late Dr. Sebi. Coincidence? Everything inside me knows better. Greed is the bane of all existence and yet we are taught in America that it has merit. We learn to covet at a very early age. Business ethics have been allowed to replace moral, human ethics. To be kind and honest is to be weak in business. Ruthlessness and deceit are considered the tools of successful business. All of this forces us to place a higher value on material competition than human coexistence. Global corporations and industries only have to stamp out a few of these uprisings every century or so. Once those in the know are too old to care or deceased, a new generation is born with fresh ignorance and little or no knowledge of the previous battles. This is why history repeats itself. We must unlearn and take back the power we give to these faceless corporations and industries. The following video will show you examples of why it is so imperative that we unlearn the BS we have been taught is “normal” and to EMPOWER THE PEOPLE!
