A Life Worth Remembering
Alfredo Darrington Bowman, also known as Dr. Sebi, earned a reputation as the Honduran-born vegetarian herbalist, pathologist, biochemist and naturalist on a mission to save the world..
Sebi was born on November 26, 1933. He never attended any institution or school—not even kindergarten. Instead, he received education from his grandmother Mama Hay, the woman who took care of him while his mother left town to work. He instead received education from his grandmother Mama Hay, the woman responsible for his primary care after his mother left town to work.
While he lived a long and prosperous life, Sebi originally suffered from asthma, diabetes, impotency and obesity. His first trip to the United States in search of cures for his ailments was unsuccessful. After venturing down to Mexico, however, Sebi struck some luck with a local herbalist who was able to heal him.
His grandmother’s wisdom and his experience in Mexico invigorated Sebi’s decision to dedicate his life to holistic medicine. He spent the rest of his years promoting a holistic approach towards wellbeing, taking advantage of natural vegetation cell compounds equipped with the ability to cleanse and revitalize all cells within the human body. Among his many advocacies is the alkaline diet, which consists of foods that have high pH levels.
Dr. Sebi’s career features a slew of cures for the world’s “incurable” diseases. In the 1980s, he ran a series of newspaper advertisements including one in the New York Post. These stated, “AIDS has been cured by the USHA Research Institute, and we specialize in cures for Sickle Cell, Lupus, Blindness, Herpes, Cancer and others.”
Stifled by the judicial system, however, Sebi’s medical breakthroughs remain a mystery to the majority of western civilization. The Food and Drug Administration and New York Post sued Sebi for false advertisement and practicing without a license. Since Sebi never prescribed traditional drugs or claimed doctoral status, he won the case.
In the summer of 2016, officials arrested Sebi for money laundering after bringing $37,000 of unaccounted cash into Honduras. A guilty verdict landed him in jail. He died on August 6, 2016 under police custody. Many Sebi supporters continue to investigate the conditions of his passing.
Sebi may be gone, but his legacy lives on. From the alkaline diet to testimonials from celebrity patients, his holistic methods continue to change the lives of those willing to believe.
