A Life Worth Remembering

Alfredo Darrington Bowman was a Honduran vegetarian, herbalist, healer, pathologist, biochemist and naturalist of holistic medicine. He was also known as Dr. Sebi andhe considered himself an African, not an African-Honduran, but an African in Honduras.

He died on August 6, 2016 due to complications of pneumonia during his police custody in Honduras. Bowman was born on November 26, 1933 in Ilanga, Honduras. He did not receive a formal education, not even kindergarten. Instead he was educated by his grandmother, Mama Hay.

While he was living a prosperous lifestyle, he was suffering from asthma, diabetes, impotency and obesity. His first trip to America was to find a cure for his ailments but it was not successful. After venturing to Mexico, a local herbalist was able to heal him. The herbalist also taught him the principles of his healing methods.

Through his grandmother’s wisdom and his experience in Mexico, he became invigorated and made a decision to dedicate his life to holistic medicine. He devoted his life to promoting the holistic approach towards wellbeing, taking advantage of the natural vegetation’s cell compounds ability to cleanse and revitalize the cells within the human body. Among his many advocacies is the alkaline diet, which is eating mostly fruits, vegetables, soybeans, tofu, nuts, and legumes.

His career features a slew of cures for the world’s “incurable” diseases.He also treated notable celebrities such as Lipa Lopes, Steven Seagal, John Travolta, Eddie Murphy and Michael Jackson from his dependency on pain killers.

In the 1980s, he ran a series of newspaper ads including one in the New York Post.

In 1993, a Congressional hearing, Shirley Stark, who headed the NYAG’s Consumer Fraud Section, indicated that a civil suit against Bowman and his company had been successful, stating: “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 Amsterdam News that, “AIDS WAS 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 follows: “Very effective on major skin problems, in prenatal use, against poor circulation, cancer cysts, hemorrhoids and arthritis” Stark stated that these claims are false. Their office filed suit against USHA and entered a consent agreement under which USHA can no longer make therapeutic claims for any of its products.

This also prohibits the Ogun Herbal Research Institute, Fig Tree Products Company, Alfredo Bowman, Maa Bowman, their successors, heirs and their assigns from:
a. Claiming that their products and/ or services could cure, relieve or alter the course of AIDS, herpes, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, lupus, or any other human diseases and/ or physical conditions.
b. Distributing and/ or advertising such products and
c. Diagnosing, treating or prescribing for any diseases without a valid state license by the New York State Education Department

A sum of $900 for costs was assessed to the defendants.

In the summer of 2016, Bowman was arrested for bringing $37,000 unaccounted cash while attempting to board a private plane from Juan Manuel Galvez de Roatan Airport. He was then released pending court hearing on June 6, 2016, only to be arrested again by Public Ministerio on money laundering charges. He was detained for several weeks while his family attempted to obtain his release. He died en route to Hospital D’Antoni on August 6, 2016 due to complications of pneumonia after police officials realized the severity of his condition.

Many of his supporters remain skeptical of his death and claims that there is a conspiracy on his arrest. Alfredo Bowman or Dr. Sebi might be gone, but his legacy lives on. From the alkaline diet and from the testimonials of his patients, including his celebrity patients, that his holistic methods continue to change the lives of those who are willing to believe.

Alkaline Diet and the pH of Food

Are you experiencing chronic pain, fatigue, any type of illness, acne breakouts or depression? These might be stemming froman unbalanced diet full of sugary snacks and processed foods. If that’s the case, an alkaline diet is what you need.

Consuming vegetables and fruits are highly recommended for a healthy lifestyle, but not every food branded as such will qualify due to their different acidity levels. You must understand the key elements of your own health before fully embracing the alkaline lifestyle.

First of all, the pH serves as the primary thing to be considered. PH stands for Potential Hydrogen and it is the figure expressing the acidity or alkalinity of a solution.

Alkaline represents the opposite end of the spectrum with the maximum score of 14. Food is categorized as acidic- below pH level of 7 or alkaline- if it’s above the pH level 7. Anything with an exact pH level of 7 is considered neutral. This lifestyle’s goal is to maintain a bodily pH level that is slightly more alkaline than acidic. This can be achieved by consuming alkaline foods and drinks.

A body requires a specific pH level in the blood. If we fail to supply it with pH-friendly resources, our body will transfer stolen minerals from locations such as our teeth. This forced process is extremely draining. It leads to stress, lack of energy and an increase vulnerability to illnesses.

An alkaline diet favors green leafy vegetables like spinach and root vegetables like carrots, fruits, some nuts (such as almonds and walnuts), seeds (such as sunflower seeds), and herbs drink as tea.

An acidic diet favors carbonated beverages, coffee, alcohol, dairy items (such as cheese and milk), processed foods (such as microwave dinners, canned vegetables, and hotdogs), beans, grains and fried foods.

Alkaline water can help gain the desired pH level. A baking soda-water concoction or a glass of water with a few lemon slices can increase alkalinity when consumed between meals. Are you confused by the lemons? A fruit that is considered acidic? While lemons are considered acidic prior to consumption, studies have proven that digesting them can increase the body’s pH level. The digestive process determines the pH effect of food regardless of the food’s original pH level.

If you are considering balancing your unhealthy habits with healthy ones, this can be achieved without fully eliminating your poor diet choices. But I advise you to reconsider, a balanced diet rather than a crowded one is essential for a disease-free body. For example, a can of soda requires 10 gallons of water to counteract the damages it does to your body. You should aim to increase your water intake, but also be certain of where it comes from. Fluoride is added to all public water systems leading to a pH level of about 4.5. This is as unhealthy as beer and bottled water is not safe either. Do a little research before deciding on what will quench your thirst.

As previously mentioned, the body maintains its healthiest status when it leans more to the alkaline side. A balanced diet includes 70% alkaline foods and 30% acidic foods. Organic purchases will be free of bodily-harming and acidity increasing pesticides.

Food is life. A balanced diet means a healthy life. In combination with the other healthy habits such as exercising, drinking the right vitamins and minerals. This would build a satisfactory environment within your body. Switching to an alkaline diet may lead to:
• Improvement in your health and mood
• Less pain
• Weight loss
• An increase in energy
• Less experience of being ill and catching a disease
• Lower dependence on daily medication

With so many delicious foods available, it easy to forget what our body truly craves. Stick to foods that were plucked from the earth to gain the best results.

Overconsumption of foods of acidic foods like ice cream, spaghetti and processed sandwiches encourages yeast growth, a condition linked to cancer. Cancer rings at about a pH level of 4. It cannot survive in alkaline setting.

Alkaline diet might not be linked to scientifically cure cancer, it has, in some cases, reduced tumor sizes and eliminated cancerous cells. There’s no need for chemotherapy when Mother Nature’s finest delicacies can offer their assistance.

Altering you entire diet may not sound thrilling, but the benefits are outrageously rewarding. Consider substituting your go-to pain reliever with a holistic cure. Trade the poisonous pharmaceuticals for alkaline-heavy foods with the ability to mellow your aches and pains. After all, healthy eating habits is a leading influence to achieve a top-notch health.

Don’t feel pressured to leap towards to a healthier lifestyle. It starts from small steps that will eventually lead you to that healthy lifestyle that you once feared that you will not achieve. Now, get ready for a new life filled with energetic glee.


Cow’s milk, is it really good for you?

Before guzzling down a glass of cold milk, ponder over this statement, “Cow’s milk is a processed food”. Processed foods are high in fats that are unrelated to good health. Milk, besides raw milk, included. “Drink water”, they said. “Eat your vegetables”, they said. “Milk is good for you”, they said. They also said that, “With age comes wisdom”. But are these statements still reliable?

We know water contains harmful fluoride. Vegetables are doused in destructive pesticides. Milk is full of hormones. Do we dare to mention the pus cells permitted in a single teaspoon of milk? Pus is a liquefied mixture of dead white blood cells and skin cells that form when the body’s immune system responds to an infection.

Extensive research and debates formulated the possible contaminants in milk. These are blood, feces, pesticides, antibiotics, and hormones. These could impact a person’s mood, energy and overall health.

Is it strange that humans are the only species to consume milk that was generated by other animals? Many have debated why consuming a cow’s milk is okay, but consuming human milk beyond infancy is a taboo.

According to The Physician’s Committee, about three-fourths of the global population feels sick when digesting dairy. This condition is known as “lactose intolerance”. It develops for the masses after a few years after their birth. Does this send a message?

Forget what the nursery rhymes have taught you. Milk does not strengthen your bones, in fact it does the opposite. Since milk lowers pH levels, the body steals vitamins and minerals from bones, teeth and organs to correct the imbalance. Our bones don’t even absorb the calcium like what milk commercial’s suggest. From acne, to diabetes, eventually even cancer. These are the damaging effects of milk.

Cows are fed with food that is covered with chemicals and injected with milk producing hormones. None of these conditions make for a healthy beverage. Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone, known as rGBH, and Recombinant Somatotropin Growth Hormone, known as rBST, are two of the common genetically modified hormones into cows in dairy farms.

Breast cancer and gastrointestinal cancer have both been linked to Rgbh. There is a reason why these chemical have been banned in 30 countries. These includes Australia, Canada, Germany, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Spain and Norway.

If the harm it causes your body is not enough, think about animal cruelty. Many animals are raised in tiny indoor cages and only few of them have felt and seen the sunlight during their lifetime. Mass producers force them into unsanitary conditions riddled with diseases.

Rarely does a cow live to its expected lifetime of 20 yrs. The conditions enabling dairy and meat consumption are out of control. We are not suggesting that you jump straightaway to being a vegan. But we suggest you to take a step towards protecting your health, your family’s health and the planet.

Your head must be spinning right now. Cow’s milk increases your chances of getting cancer? Pus? What the heck? If you are still confused, we suggest that you do your own research. Let our upsetting revelation motivate you to make a difference.



Yes, Honey!

There is a treasure trove of hidden nutritional and medicinal value in this sugary syrup that we all know as honey. Raw and unfiltered honey has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and healing characteristics. From flavonoids, a powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory that can benefit our immune system, to hygroscopic properties, the ability to draw environmental moisture and to dehydrate bacteria. Honey is the gold medalist of home remedies.

Cut, scrapes and burns. Honey can help you heal those wounds. According to the United States National Library of Medicine, honey has the ability to maintain a moist environment that encourages the healing process with infection-fighting barriers. Manuka Honey in particular is strongly noted for its antibacterial properties. So, the next time your child comes home rocking a scrape on his forehead just as picture day is right around the corner, consider dabbing some Manuka honey to speed the healing process and to prevent scarring.

Just a spoonful of honey helps the swelling go down. Gleam Honey, for instance interrupts the NF-kB’s pathway to battle inflammation. Honey concoctions offer remedies for everyday ailments. For sore throat, try mixing and then gargling these ingredients: • 2 tablespoons of honey
• 4 tablespoons of lemon juice
• A pinch salt

If these ingredients are too hard for you to handle, mix it with warm water. Manuka Honey will suffice. During allergy season, we’re looking to combat our runny noses, itchy eyes and our scratchy throats. The New York Times asserts that consuming honey would be enough to build an immunity to allergens. After all, bees transfer pollen spores to honey during the creation process. Exposing yourself to nature’s nectar can be a vaccine that can trick your body into producing antibodies. Pretty sweet, huh?

Add a drip of honey in your tea. Plop a drop of it on your paper cut. No matter how you introduce honey into your life, you won’t regret it.


Your Food, Your Health

Having discovered cures for some of the world’s most perplexing diseases, Dr. Sebi was one of the greatest natural healers of our time. A combination of ancestral wisdom and observational education that led him to a medicinal plan that was based on one thing, the earth. He believed sources that our grown in our own backyard can cure anything.

The alkaline diet remains the most popularized part of Dr. Sebi’s legacy. Since our brains and bodies operate on electric currents, he believed that we must feed ourselves with energy boosting electrical foods. Fast and store brand foods are appealing but they are far from being healthy. Here are some foods that Dr. Sebi has considered, “electric”::
• Amaranth greens
• Avocado
• Bell peppers
• Chayote
• Cucumber
• Dandelion greens
• Garbanzo beans
• Green banana
• Izote
• Lettuce (except iceberg)
• Mushrooms (except shiitake)
• Nopales
• Okra
• Olives
• Onions
• Poke salad greens
• Sea vegetables (wakame, dulse, arame, hijiki and nori)
• Squash
• Tomatoes (cherry and plum only)
• Tomatillo
• Turnip greens
• Zucchini
• Watercress
• Purslane (verdolaga)

Combined with regular exercise, these “electric foods” are great way to ensure good health. They also promote pH balance leading to cell protection and to suitable mineral levels.

Alkaline diet prevents blood vessel plaque formation, urine calcium buildup and kidney stones. They even build stronger bones, reduce muscle spasms and much more.

Remember, the goal is balance. Consuming acidic foods is expected and even healthy, but going all out on the alkaline friendly foods is not. Balance is the key to a healthy life.


Healthy Living

The world has always been secretive, yet exposed on so many levels. These levels are used as information, but these are never kept. As a result, many people suffer from various illnesses and diseases which are not noticeable from the beginning but they manifest later in life. Now, living in this modern era, we have been engulfed in many different things. Innovations in technology and especially in food. Cakes, drinks, extravagant appetizers, fried chicken, steaks, donuts and other sophisticated and enigmatic foods. We can all agree that these foods are delicious, but are they healthy? Will eating these benefit our lives?

Many people don’t care about the foods that have high acidity levels or contain elements that may produce chronic diseases, pain, stress, fatigue, depression, emotional breakdown. That is because today we are fond of eating and following the motto, Y.O.L.O (You Only Live Once).

As a result, many people die not just of poverty or being involved in an accident. Incurable diseases have been spreading rampantly across the globe due to our unhealthy lifestyle. However, this doesn’t mean that all delicious foods are forbidden. Maintaining a balance diet is necessary to have a healthy lifestyle.

Here at SincereAmor, we provide the best tips and advices that will lead you to have a healthy lifestyle. Among these are the Alkaline Diet, which we consider as one of the best techniques. We care about people and their health. We are providing these information free of charge so our readers can see various ways and means on how to be healthy.

Some diseases and illnesses are still incurable due to the slow progression of our technology and cures that haven’t been discovered yet. Sometimes our bodies are immune to medicine. So how will we get better or how will we prevent getting sick? It usually starts with preservation. The world may have the cure but it doesn’t guarantee anything. We might have the knowledge and a natural cure might be the solution.

Join us as Eli Eletese, the CEO, founder of GKN International and SincereAmor, leads us to unravel the secrets and mysteries of the Alkaline Diet and its potential on creating a healthy lifestyle that will lead us to a fuller and happier life.
