About Dr Sebi
The inspiration behind the Dr. Sebi diet comes from native Honduran, Dr. Sebi (real name Alfredo Darrington Bowman), who acknowledges himself as an herbalist, natural healer, and intracellular therapist.
His methodology is rather interesting and involves focusing of natural, alkaline, plant-based foods and herbs while staying away from acidic, hybrid foods. By following this approach, you can prevent mucus build up, which can lead to the development of diseases.
Dr. Sebi is the founder of the USHA Healing Village based in Honduras, which not only provides healing, but also teaches people how to live an alkaline lifestyle.
Many users have claimed that this diet has improved their health significantly and Dr Sebi’s thoughts about nutritional and herbal therapy are found all throughout Youtube, helping to teach and promote healthy living even after his death.
Bowman is an inspiration to many because he discovered a way to heal life-threatening diseases that have been considered incurable. He was an herbalist for 40 plus years and claims to heal people from AIDS, asthma, cancer, diabetes, eczema, epilepsy, fibroids, heart disease, high blood pressure, inflammation, lupus, multiple sclerosis, and sickle cell among other things.

Dr Sebi Diet Overview
The Dr Sebi Diet is simply a vegan, plant-based diet that restricts man-made food and hybrids.
The diet is all about minimizing acidity in your foods and mucus in your body.
Dr Sebi (also known as Alfredo Bowman) believes that when you do these two things, you create an alkaline environment in your body that makes it tough for disease to live in.
The mucus reducing alkaline diet involves eating from a proprietary nutritional guide and food list that is based on 40+ years of research identifying non-hybrid, alkaline foods.
Naturally, most people lose weight when eating according to this plant-based, alkaline diet because they are eliminating waste, meat, dairy, and processed foods from their diet.
Often times people combine fasting and herbs with the diet too to help with cleansing, healing, and/or overall well-being. In these cases, they usually consult with a doctor or health care professional.
Sticking to the diet long term is not that hard if you can get past the first few days.
The initial days can be challenging though as your body will still crave sugar.
It doesn’t help that there are fast food options everywhere and that most restaurants do not have menu items that fit this lifestyle.
As a result, you will have to get used to preparing a lot of meals at home.
To help with this, we created a recipe book which includes a product/gameplan that gives you all of the information you need to eat right, plan out your meals, and have fun, flavorful recipes that adhere to the diet.
What Does The Diet Consist of?
The Dr Sebi diet is a vegan, plant-based diet and a niche version of an alkaline diet (Source: National Institute of Health). While following the diet, many also take herbs to help cleanse and heal their body of decades of horrible eating.
Baba Sebi considers alkaline foods to be “electric foods” which are live and raw foods that are for the “healing of the nation.” In general, Dr Sebi breaks down food into six categories:
- Genetically modified
You should focus on number 1 and 2 (live and raw), while staying away from 3 – 6. This includes avoiding seedless fruits, weather resistant crops such as corn, and anything with added vitamins or minerals which can be difficult considering what there are so many hybrid and genetically modified (GMO) fruits and vegetables offered in grocery stores.
Foods that are recommended include ripe fruit, non starchy vegetables, raw nuts and butter and grains. Leafy greens, quinoa, rye, and Kamut can also play a large role in this diet.
Acidic foods such as meat, poultry, seafood, or products containing yeast, alcohol, sugar, iodized salt, or anything that is fried bring negative effects to the human body.
Replacing acidic foods with electric foods will help to heal your body from the negative effects that acidic foods bring.
When you follow, largely raw diet seems unappetizing, your body slowly gets used to it as it cleanses your cells of toxins, leading to the cure of disease.

Benefits of the Diet
Minimizing acid in foods helps to decrease mucus in the body, which creates an alkaline environment within your body that makes it very difficult for disease to form.
This part is self-explanatory. Weight loss is bound to happen when following the diet because this diet consists of natural vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, and legumes.
It eliminates waste, dairy, meat, and processed food, so naturally, your body will lose weight. This diet serves as a cleanse and reaps many benefits. Your body will thank you!
Strong Immune System
A weak immune system is the result of illnesses and diseases. Some claim that they have strengthened their immune system and have been healed of certain ailments by following this diet consistently.
Reduced Risk of Disease
Acidic foods erode the mucous membrane of the cells and inner walls of the body which leads to a compromised system that makes disease possible. As a result, eating alkaline foods can reduce the risk of disease and help your body in getting what it needs to feed the good cells.
Lower Risk of Stroke and Hypertension
According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), first line therapies for all stages of hypertension include exercise and weight loss. However, results from one small cross-sectional study suggest that a plant-based diet is the more important intervention.
Everyday Health has also discussed the benefits of a plant based diet, stating that a plant-based diet can decrease plaque in the blood vessels and lower risk of diabetes and stroke
As we discussed, the alkaline electric diet is a niche version of a plant-based vegan diet.
Diets heavy in meat, dairy and white sugar can be a drag on your body and energy levels. Focusing on plant-based living is a better approach and can enhance the energy that you exhibit on a regular basis.
Following Dr Sebi’s teachings will help to clear brain fog, keep you focused and less bothered by stressful situations that arise.
Even if you are not sick, using a plant-based methodology will help you live a long and healthy life.

Tips for Sticking to the Diet
Like any other diet you try, this one will take time and effort! While it may be difficult at first, your body will slowly get used to this new way of eating. You will begin to feel more energized as you eliminate all the bad foods you may have consumed in the past. Down below are a few suggestions and guidelines to follow to make this the most enjoyable experience possible.
Drink Plenty of Water
According to Bowman, people should be drinking at least a gallon of water per day. This is essential to making this alkaline diet work to the best of its ability. Alfredo recommends natural spring water as opposed to water softeners or water from a reverse osmosis system. Other health organizations and nutritional experts suggest a gallon of water per day too. Keep in mind that water removes waste from the body while assisting in the absorption of nutrients and cushioning joints and organs.
Be Emotionally and Mentally Prepared
It is extremely likely that you have formed some strong habits eating certain types of foods daily that may make it very hard to break or change your diet.Your family and friends may also become a hindrance when trying to carry out this diet. Before beginning this plan, spend some time thinking about why you want to change your eating and the obstacles, both mental and emotional, that you will face.
Don’t Give up Snacks
Yes, you heard right! While you do not have to give up snacks, you do have to snack the right way.This means instead of reaching for a bag of potato chips, eat a piece of fruit or create snacks based on the recommended food list.
Review the Approved Foods
Do your best not to stray from the list of approved foods as it can hinder your results.While it may seem too difficult at first to eat from the selected list, you’ll soon find it’s easier than thought especially if you are prepared mentally.
Add Whole Foods to Your Diet
Do your best to substitute packaged foods with whole foods in your diet on a regular basis. You want to avoid packaged foods because they are full of additives, which can be very addictive especially since many have refined sugar that causes food cravings.
Cooking is Essential
You will quickly find that it’s necessary to cook when trying this diet. The guides guides offer alkaline food recipes to make this process easier. His guides walk you step by step through each alkaline meal. After you begin preparing your own meals, you’ll see how you can take your favorite dishes and prepare them using approved ingredients.
