The Sebi Diet: Confusion and Contradictions

In Health, Nutrition by Jesse Soberal118 Comments

When I first went vegan several years ago I spent many hours researching, reading books, and watching lectures and documentaries trying to gather as much information as I could. A random person I talked to about my journey suggested I check out Dr. Sebi if I wanted to really know the truth about what we were eating. So I watched all his videos and became enamored with him because apparently he could cure any disease. He knew animal products were toxic, was an advocate of herbal medicine and was a powerful speaker. He convinced me that all his claims regarding foods were truth. So I began to promote him and all of his food teachings.

Dr. Sebi advocates eating a vegan diet and avoiding any hybrid food. He claims that any hybrid food is acidic and mucus forming. He claims that there is only one disease and it is mucus. He advocates to only eat from a food list he derived which is very limited and excludes many vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds and grains.

He says carrots, celery, broccoli, potatoes, rice, aloe vera, wheat grass, spinach, lemons, cauliflower, turmeric, beets, peppermint, beans, garlic, all seedless fruits, most nuts, and any other hybrid food is acidic and poisonous to the body. He calls rice and beans hog food and not meant to be consumed by humans. He says spinach has the same nutritional value as eating paper. He claims that every hybrid plant is man made and acidic. He claims all hybrids have starch in them and that starch is poison. He says eating starch is literally like eating glue. He claims all heirloom natural plants which are made from nature and not man. He says these are what we should be eating and are alkaline. I honestly believed this and tried to stick to his diet.

As I slowly did more research on his claims I started seeing almost everything he said about certain hybrid plant based foods had no evidence to back it up. No studies. Nothing at all. I have heard many stories of people using many of these hybrid foods such as carrot juice or celery juice to heal themselves of many ailments. There are countless studies that show the benefits of many of these hybrid foods. What people also don’t realize is almost every banana, grape, orange, apple, and pear just to name a few foods is a hybrid. Just because a food is a hybrid doesn’t necessarily mean they are bad.


The problem I have with his claims is being vegan is hard enough. The food list is full of great foods. But to tell people many fruits and vegetables are toxic without any proof is actually bad for the movement. It makes people give up and think that eating healthy is too hard when everything is toxic and they revert to eating animals and junk food. We need to demand proof when we deal with anyone and not just blindly believe without evidence.

Dr. Sebi never went to school. Not even kindergarten but calls himself a doctor. He says he never read any books at all. Yet claims to understand every fruit and vegetable on earth and their origins. He claims to know if they are alkaline or acidic, without ever reading a book or performing any studies how is this possible?

One of the things that made me start to question Dr. Sebi and really opened my eyes was when I saw him speak in Brooklyn in November 2015. I was hoping to hear new information, perhaps more on healing herbs but instead he told the same stories I’ve read countless times on the internet. There was one thing that was different however, in his famous 2011 two hour lecture on YouTube he spoke on how good moringa was. I had never heard of it. I began buying it after researching more and it was clear how great it was nutritionally. Fast forward to the lecture I attended, in complete contradiction from all his previous talks, without any explanation or evidence he claimed moringa was now a poison hybrid not to be consumed. I soon noticed he commonly adds foods to his alkaline list that he previously said were acidic and removes other foods he originally stated were alkaline. For anyone trying to follow his diet it would be a nightmare.

Further research has led to uncovering many glaring red flags regarding Dr. Sebi’s work. His social media pages have said rice was plastic, so plastic is now grown on a plant and not made in a factory? They’ve said broccoli is laboratory made poison and had a release date just like an album or cd. This is just insane to me, broccoli sprouts are some of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet and have countless studies that show they can help with treating cancer and many other ailments. Turmeric has also been proven to reverse many diseases. The health benefits of beets and lemons are endless. Aloe Vera has been used for many centuries in many cultures, it has countless medicinal properties externally and internally. The only orange your allowed to eat on his diet is a sour orange. So all other oranges are poison? The only tomatoes allowed are plum and cherry tomatoes. All other tomatoes are not be consumed.

He also says no amount of heat can destroy the nutrients in food when it’s been proven countless times that when you cook food certain enzymes and other nutrients are destroyed in the cooking process. He says carrots are poison but the Gerson therapy which has cured many people of cancer uses carrot juice. Jay Kordich the “juice man” cured his cancer with carrot juice. There are so many other claims that are just not adding up.

Rather than get caught up on gurus selling tons of supplements or special diets I think we should all focus on eating a whole foods plant based organic diet. The possibilities are endless. More fruits and veggies. Lots of greens juices and smoothies. Huge salads. Lots of herbs and herbal teas. Less oil. Less salt. (Even sea salt!!!) Less breads. No stimulants. No alcohol. Lots of water. More whole foods. No animal products. No GMOs. No white sugar. Less processed food. Support farmers markets. Grow your own food if you can. This should keep you nice and healthy.



  1. Excellent article, have also been frustrated w/ all the hybrid fruits & veggies! Thanks for clarifying things!

    1. We all need to remember that we all are unique in our make up and what works for one may not work for another. One person may be too acidic while another too alkaline and being balanced or neutral is ideal. An all alkaline ph can kill you too. Balance and moderation in everything. And yes he was a great man and had his place in the world, still does. It is wise to take an approach to any diet based on one’s personal make up. Peace and well being.

    2. Can someone help with the top 5 greens sold in NY, Kale, Collard Greens, Turnip Greens, Mustard Greens, and Watercress these are all GMO foods. They do not advertise Non-GMO. Cabbage is not sold Non-GMO, as well as frozen vegetable. ??? . Also, when this article says grow your own food, most seeds sold are GMO. I don’t know who is telling the truth. And the reason I say that, is I picked up a package of black grape the company stated on the front under their name, Non-GMO but seedless. We know that can’t be. God made our grapes to have seeds. So, I know this company is lying.

      1. A hybrid food is seedless and can be non gmo. It can be crossbred (hybrid) to not have seeds , but not necessarily gmo. To be a gmo whatever was done to it, is done in a lab. That’s why Sebi talks about hybrids not being naturally. Certain vegetables wouldn’t exist or look the way they do without cross breeding

        1. That is still a GMO. It does not have to be done in a lab to be considered a GMO. Cross breeding is genetically modifying genes to create a specific out come. Seedless in GMO and would never occur in nature.

  2. I do agree that following his diet plan can be difficult. But some things I must mention, he must be doing something right and he must know something if he’s healing people. Before “modern science” people didn’t go to school and get degrees and do studies, they understood the land, something that has become a lost art, and maybe he has that gift.
    I think his main point is that “black” or “african people” have different dietary requirements to heal themselves and to live a healthy life. All people are not the same, and depending on where you come from and what your genetic predisposition is will play a role in how your body functions and reacts to foods that may be foreign you know. For example, the overwhelming majority of so called “black” people I know have negative reactions to dairy products, because the compounds in dairy are foreign to their bodies, unlike that of someone from European descent.

    Were all human but we are not all the same

    1. Perfectly said! I agree because just like dr. Sebi said, gorillas eat a specific food as do polar bears, we, the human race may have the same similarity because some ethnicities may have to eat hybrid foods to heal theirselves.

    2. Yh u Know i have kongolese st lucian and english decent so u are not lying here

    3. Yes we are all human and we all have the same organs. It doesn’t matter what your descent it because we all started in Africa. This is what he means when he refers to Africa. We all carry the African gene whether you are Arab, black, white, etc…. Reactions to consuming dairy arise because we are not even supposed to be consuming it in the first place. The western diet was imposed on us but it was never part of our lives. We created animals such as cows, pigs, lamb and chickens. This is why these farm animals don’t exist in the wild because they are hybrids created by humans.

    4. Just saw this article. I am African American, tried the Gerson diet. My PH level was good, but I became pre-diabetic from all the carrot and apple juices, also potatoes. Every diet does not fit all. Dr Sebi’s diet is for his people. He is instructing you to eat your ancestors food.

    5. Yes he also said just this .. to examine the place where u are from,, what he eats will not always be available where you may live ..so check out what’s available and go from there ,, I was on the diet eating two meals a day and then one meal off it but when I started drinking the almond milk and brown rice I started feeling sluggish again,, the man is right in his own study I trust him for the most part ,, one hundred percent is going to be tough to change to no meat but eventually I will

    6. I tell people this all the time eating the white mans food is killing our people.

  3. Lol, he read Arnold Ehrets book. He poorly coined all of his teachings from them. Arnold ehret introduced us to the ORGINAL mucus less diet healing system back in 1922. And also introduced us to the book/key to immortality via his other book entitled “Rational Fasting”. Research the wonderful man!! He has changed my life forever and the lives of several others. He had a real sanatorium and healed thousands of patients from several incurable a dis-eases. Happy transitioning everyone!

    1. My grandpa brought me the mucusles healing diet book, i haven’t read it yet though. Do ou belive Dr. Sebi was well informed and knew what he was talking about?

  4. What did Sebi have to say about the Maasai Tribe of Kenya and Tanzania? Nomadic cattle herders, meat eaters, milk and blood drinkers? Ancient African culture. Even practiced circumcision.

  5. there has been countless studies that have been done but no one has any evidence that they did what sebi has done. when you can do what he claim and have the evidence you can back it up with then you can throw stones. but until you can do what that man did you have little right to talk down about someone that has done so much great things.

    1. another thing what evidence that the gerson therapy works…. even sebi had to prove himself to the courts… where was this proven.

      1. If I had the option of choosing to be healed by either Dr. Sebi or the Gerson therapy I would go with Dr. Sebi all the way.

    2. Leroy I agree with you. I am a Sebi Follower and I can say I am much healthier now then i was before I started following him. Eating the the unhealthy foods was really taking a tole on me. I now enjoy cooking and making my own receipes.

    3. I totally agree, Leroy! Dr. Sebi was known to heal people with that food list and had the evidence to support it. People from all over the world could attest to his knowledge and expertise. The message of healing doesn’t change.

  6. Dr Sebi distinguishes between natural hybrids (which are good) and man-made hybrids which are bad. One can never know everything that is why Dr Sebi constantly researched and his food list changes due to the research, that just shows that he’s not ashamed to admit when he is wrong. Anyway, I wouldn’t trust that food list, since in the past, there has been legal tension between Dr Sebi and the business. We’re all on our own journey, thus upon this journey, one will stumble upon a truth applicable to him/her. An interesting article my friend. Continue on your path and discover your truths.

  7. Nice article. I have an open mind and love to listen to anyone who gives knowledge. I love a lot of what Sebi says but some of it us conflicting. Sometimes he makes reference to the bible but says no to apricots, fish ox, la.b and goat;foods in the body. Lemon, broccoli srouts, beets, cilantro, parsley, turmeric etc are weight and cancer fighters but Sebi says no; mind boggling.

  8. If he was white he would have been awarded a Nobel prize or something.

    1. That is the Truth, because Europeans have never been able to cure any disease, right down to the common cold.

  9. I think Dr. Sebi was a great man and yes herbs is a large field and it’s hard to know everything. So best is to do your own research and eat as healthy you can, can’t avoid everything even if you grow your own food. I think tumeric and Aloe Vera are great plants a research also says that Aloe balance the ph-level, it’s the skin we should not consume. And yes black people body is so much different from whites and easier to get diabetes.

    1. I’m a black scientist , and my family orginstes from Jamaica, I like Dr Sebi, but I’m a bit conflicted by what his says especially when I have a grandma and other family members in Jamaica that are over 100 years old and eat all vegetables.
      We are all genetically made up very differently and what’s for one is not for all .

      I respect him but prefer Dr Gerson’s approach

      1. Your comment relative to some living to be 100 years old eating all vegetables, proves nothing. Just as my grandfather smoked cigarettes daily and lived to be over 90. So does that mean that cigarettes should be smoked by everyone. Open up that African brain and get off the European brainwashing train of thought.

        1. Why do we have to belittle each other? Why does it have to be ‘African brain’ and ‘European brainwashing’? Why can’t he simply be doing what is best for him and his family personally, not for you or anyone else? What he eats does not make you full.

        2. Gary , your grandfather was an exception to the rule , most people who smoke will develop a lung disease. You can never use exception to the rule as an argument .

  10. This attack on Dr. Sebi seems to be a part of the many who wish to discredit him. Instead of discrediting him, continue on with your mucus diet and you piled up prescriptions that many are dependent on. He was doing something right, he was free of all of those ailments and has cured many people, which was proven in the Courts of law. You attack his education, which simply shows your malice toward him, you play good cop-bad cop in the beginning to make it appear as though you have no Ill will, which is apparent.

    Just move on and allow those of us who highly respect this man, who’s picture will hang in my home as one of the “WorldChangers” of ALL time. I’m certain Dr. Sebi’s work is being picked at and disected in order for the pharmaceutical and FDA to benefit or hide crime the people. They don’t want us well, they want us sick and themselves RIcH!

    1. You may blindly wish to follow everything Sebi has said, but if you read the article it does not discredit much of his work at all. It is simply stating an experience from someone who followed Sebi and noticed things he said at times didn’t add up. Not the writer nor anyone on this site promotes anything pharmaceutical and in fact if you looked at our various articles before you commented you would of realized as much.

      Sebi has done great things and will be remembered as such, but no one is above criticism and no human being is perfect. His knowledge on many fruits and vegetables are plain wrong, period, and one can be wrong about things and also be right about others. No one is throwing the baby out with the bathwater or looking at this as black and white. There are always many greys when it comes to individual nutrition, and no one person has the complete answer accept YOU! Learn that and you will be well on your way to a long, healthy life. Bless up.

      1. It does not add up, the Hybrid carrots that he says cured someone because this person has not found out that eating carrots produce a net acid result as Dr. Sebi indicated. If you want you to be acidy than continue to eat these acid producing products. And if you think having acid in the body does you good, you will find that disease thrive in acid.

  11. Well written article. I really love the last paragraph on how we should eat. Thank you.

  12. Amazing! New follower of Dr Sebi, (2 months) This simple food list i really appreciate. I’ve read and have watched many videos from other Sebi followers. My understanding is this food list is a beginners guide for people of African decent who want to greatly improve and maintain optimum health especially if you are ill. 80/20 Rule very realistic especially with all the cooking videos and recipe books based on the Dr Sebi simple list.

    I wish that Vegan leaders would not discourage others from trying something that’s safe with many satisfied customers. I’m a disabled US Veteran with 25 plus years of suffering with Chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyagia, depression, severe anemia, etc. In 2 months, without ordering any formula, I’m off depression medicine, 15 1bs weight loss, I have more energy and my last trip to the VA this week my anemia is better.

    You pay the Multivitamin industry billions and pharmacy trillions; America is still in poor health. Please! Try and See what works for you. In 3 months change back to whatever these other vegan leaders are guiding you towards. Take care of you.

  13. I don’t follow Dr. Sebi’s recommendations 100%, because I simply can’t. I just adapt where I can – especially because I found that some of the items he did not include in his diet aren’t necessarily harmful if at all. Also, because of practical reasons like not being able to totally transition or maintain a totally alkaline diet at this point in time. However, I don’t like the slant of this article. If you really love and admire someone, you are going to advocate, lift and support them when you feel they or their legacy have/has been disrespected (this would be me). You don’t have to be a blind follower to do so. The man wasn’t a god to me – but who else do we know of is curing people of AIDS or other seemingly incurable diseases and ailments? There aren’t many people on this planet who care enough about other people to even try. If one is going to critique, do it in love and/or respect – not with an accompanying photo that makes it look like Dr. Sebi was a confused old man. (I don’t appreciate that at all.) If you do otherwise, expect to get some push-back.

  14. I’m usually a journeyman through articles and reader of comments and almost never reply. However, I feel a need to respond to this one. It is true that Sebi’s food list had frequently had some changes from one moment to the next but we must also remember that none of it is set in stone; to believe so is naïve. One simply has to look at their perpetually deteriorating environment around them. As in our own outlets. “Science” and nutritionalists forever claim one food is good for you today and then not so good for you the next. In the end its just big money as we have industrialized almost everything on earth (such as the medical industry). Things that we aren’t doing probably costs too much to do or hasn’t been thought of yet.

    A lot of “so-called” science via the internet are also “paid for” by a party with a motive to ultimately promote or sell; so be sure as to what you are reading is reputable (though this can even true in “reputable areas”; be careful).

    Next, there is a biblical message behind some of Sebi’s practices pertaining to consumption of “blood” and “seed mixing”. (Please search) Scientific theories in general have been made to dethrone Biblical teachings, even though a theory that can disprove an existing theory can become the new norm to consider and teach. Unlike scientific theory, scriptures do not change (it had added but did not subtract). So just because something is possible, doesn’t make it natural; contrary to the article above. A mule is an example of a unnatural process even though it happened in “nature” (horses and donkeys are different species; also please do not compare this with humans and their different races. As for disease among races, sickle cell is an example of one that more prevelant in people of African descent). Manurer is natural but I am not sure you would want to eat it, unless you have some sort of twisted motive. The one hybrid Sebi is known for actually approving is kale, which has a TON of benefits, as well as amaranth greens in terms of nutrition from vegetables; while quinoa is a “super-grain” (Sebi also allow “wild rice”). All else is generally found in herbs pertaining to well-ness.

    Sea salt is also preferred as mined salt may have harmful minerals and/or most of which are not located on the label. Sea salt is evaporated from “sea water” which is alkaline on the PH scale. The real question we should be asking is how can our bodies be well in an acid state? I recently had a discussion with a chem professor about it. You’re body would NOT be well. If all else, one should strongly consider “this balance” in their life styles. This is the “balance” we all talk about that we need when we talk about “fixing ourselves”. Its also funny to me that once you get cancer, doctors recommend an “alkaline-based diet”; oh the irony. Also, remember, nobody should be your idol and not everything is perfect, in the end, you have the final say as to what you put in your body as it is “what comes out of one’s mouth is what defiles a person.” It is also possible to know things without ever reading. It’s called life experience and connections you make with “resourceful people”. You can also be “read to”. School is overrated, only good for basic skills, reading, arts, math and sciences depending on what you want to do. It’s not where you go, it’s what you know and we all know you learn more “on-the-job.” I love history and it is important to learn it not to repeat mistakes but it can also ignite serve as boastfulness, bitterness, vengefulness, and war between peoples. Forgiveness may not be fully possible when you really should forgive and forget; its a sweet release some people should try (biblical also). Think genocide, people learning that one’s people was killed by another will never foster true peace; it may not restart within the same people but it will elsewhere as history repeats itself. We also have the need to feel better than others; stems from primitiveness (tribal and clans), insecurities and what you were told (history); politics to continue the divide. History is also written by the victor, hence “HIS”tory. Humans are afraid of what they do not know which is why we always need answers to everything. Please research the points I have made and draw your own conclusions and please “don’t follow me” but you can befriend me. Cheers!

    1. It is also possible to know things without ever reading. It’s called life experience and connections you make with “resourceful people”. You can also be “read to”. School is overrated, only good for basic skills, reading, arts, math and sciences depending on what you want to do. It’s not where you go, it’s what you know and we all know you learn more “on-the-job.” ,,,,Jon you were on point with this. Yes indeed you don’t have to read books, Sebi had Life teachers around him, corporate schooling is highly over-rated.

  15. Uh carrots are a hybrid, just so ya know. They used to be purple and were made by genetically combining other mutant colored carrots thst nobody ate. They are bad for your liver. And the chemical that makes the orange(none in the purple) blocks you from receiving any of the vitamin A your supposed to receive in the first place. Just saying. He was spot on with that. Someone made a big no no on the Orange carrots when designing them.

  16. People are misinterpreting this article. When someone is making it as clear as day that he just has some points he disagrees on. People are taking this too personal. Dr Sebi is a excellent teacher and healer but he is not without fault. This is what happens when you follow another human being instead of the truth. I know people who’ve healed themselves by doing a raw diet for months at a time…and used herbs like garlic and lemon to achieve this. Didn’t Dr Sebi say no to these herbs? Well obviously he was wrong. Follow the truth not the Messenger presenting what he believes is truth.

  17. I agree with everything you say. One problem I had was when he said garlic was poison. I’ve visited numerous acid/alkaline charts and most of them say garlic is alkaline. Not only that but I have used garlic to heal myself multiple times. I am from the Caribbean and certain foods he will claim are acids show to be alkaline on the Caribbean chart. So if these people tested foods and they were alkaline could it be that the volcanic soil common in the Caribbean make them so? Or is it that the ones grown in foreign countries aren’t the real plants. I honestly believe the only real killers are processed foods with added chemicals etc. Anything that grows from the earth is ok to eat and will benefit you in some way. That’s my belief. Well for sure things like rice can have a bad effect on diabetics etc but if you stay away from starch for a while and allow you body to fix its insulin response you can once again consume those foods with no problem.

  18. I have been studying Dr Sebis teachings for almost 2 years now. I love what he has to say and the delivery in which he says it. What I have learned from him has forever changed the way way I look at food. I will say I have never followed his food list 100% but I did completely go vegan and I drink a lot of tea I make from different roots and herbs I’ve heard him speak of. In 6 months I dropped 65 lbs and I feel great. The bottom line is that I am responsible for myself and if I have a question or would like to learn more about something I will further research to get the answers. No one is obligated to follow Sebis teachings, You can eat whatever you want, but I will assume since you have read this article and left or read comments you are all looking to better your health. Human nature is that when something is difficult to do most people will make excuses, complain, blame or just give up. Whether Sebi is 100% right or wrong at this point is irrevelant to me because I have already learned so much and have made so many positive changes in my life that he has already hugely impacted my life for the better. If you feel discouraged that the food list is too difficult just remember that in life, nothing of value is easy. If everything was easy than everyone would be successful. It takes practice and hard work. You can follow Dr Sebi or you can find what works for you, but do SOMETHING and be true to yourself.

    1. Jesse, I know of Dr. Sebi for over 30 years and have been influenced by his teaching as with others. I have been a vegetarian meaning I only consume from vegetation for over 30 years. There is no source of information that is perfect for everyone. We take what resonate with us and move one clearly you have been impacted by Dr. Sebi’s teachings, knowledge and products. I don’t know is you are and African or descendant of African or not but in African culture it is very disrespectful to speak ill of the dead and not good karma. Why challenge Dr. Sebi’s works when he can no longer defend it. We can dissect every health methodology that is out here and find the flaws, are you prepared to do this?

      1. This article was published before Sebi’s passing, and no one is speaking ill of him. It is simple debate over certain things that he taught. The dead and work of the dead has been debated for thousands of years. Especially those who have impacted society in one way or another from philosophical to scientific. I cannot speak for the writer but discourse does not die with a person and neither does knowledge, to do so would stagnate our evolution.

  19. My opinion this all depends where youre coming from. Sebi’s old knowledges works for African descendants, maybe its not for you .. but that doesnt mean that Sebi wasnt right!

  20. Dr. Sebi was directing his message to certain people. Everything is not for everyone. I am a advocate of Dr. Sebi and a researcher of many.

  21. All I know is, Dr Sebi’s products are very, very expensive. 99% of the herbs and roots can be bought at less a fraction of his prices. Go to his site and see how much he’s selling Myrrh tooth powder, $25,00 and the kg is not listed. It’s all well and good being conscious about your health but you got to know when you are being ripped off and that’s the truth. I’ve been buying herbs for over 25 years and Dr Sebi’s prices are extortionately over priced.
    The people who respectively stand by Dr Sebi should request a reduction to his prices.

    All respect to our Elders for their knowledge.

    1. When he died ppl that he and his wife fired took over the biz while his wife was out of the country she mad a video to explain

  22. If I was in Dr Sebi’s position, I would tell the people where to go and buy their products wholesale. I would inform the people where to get the best seeds to grow their herbs and produce. I would give suggestions to my people to organise and acquire land, learn husbandry, botany and plant your natural food and herbs. I would not be selling expensive products in glass containers. I would also give free advice to my people in return for their time.

    Make this lesson for my people.

    (Oxfam goes Africa giving Aid. All the billions they receive, they never build major water pipelines, roads no Solar panels for free energy, never build modern schools, no technical knowledge to cultivate the land,WHY?)

    1. Dr. Sebi was all about doing for self. Dr. Sebi was a herbalist that was his career and he did what medical doctors do not do for their patients. Why would he make product, hire people and have a healing center (all of which cost money) for free. Why does no one ever expect this from European people only African is our time, skill and knowledge not worth anything? In every society at every point in history one has to pay or exchange for good and or services. Whatever your career or jobs live by your values and give it away for free.

    2. I never knew that, you make a great point, it’s sad that some organizations don’t help out like their suppose to.

    3. I am assuming that you are a Black person. Because as a Black person, I only see other Black people always asking other Black people for everything for FREE. You can always grow a garden instead of begging for something. If he were to do this, how would he live? Herbs are expensive because the market for mass production and widespread pesticide make it nearly impossible to cultivate herbs properly. Most notably, you either choose not to read or cannot. There have been books on gardening for centuries, yet you want him to tell you instead of seeking the knowledge on your own…. You sound ridiculous brownskinantique

  23. Jesse, Dr. Sebi was only scratching the surface, but keep in mind that although many people can benefit from his stance, he meant for African people to benefit most from it, since Bio Mineral deficiency is ramped in their culture. There is so much more for us to learn and science journals are available with a plethora of information about exactly what Dr. Sebi has been saying. I don’t know what research you have done, but I have checked scientific research journals and there is proof that the vegetables and fruit he speaks of as hybrids, are indeed hybrids. How you find hybrid is to look for the words “cultivated”. If you do not find the word “wild”, “self germination”, self pollination, it means that the vegetable or fruit must be planted and cared for in order to exist. It also means that they cannot sustain it’s health during their growth if not watched carefully to protect it from animals and insects. Wild and self germinated vegetables and fruits exist regardless, and they withstand those occurrences. Remember that hybridization started thousands of years ago, so although something existed for a very long time does not make it natural. If a human need to plant and grow it, it is not natural. Also natural vegetables and fruits have a complete molecular structure, and has most, not all of its minerals. Our consumption of non natural fruits and vegetables is why many of us have mineral deficiencies and need to take supplements. Please continue to do the research before jumping to the conclusion that his amazing findings are untrue. He stood before the court of law, in a criminal case and won because those disbelieved as you do. The healing he has been sharing with thousands of people is more than enough proof that what he is saying is truth. Everyone else can only theorize and philosophy. He stood his ground with evidence through those who were healed and are continuing to heal.

    1. Perfectly said!! I think Dr. Sebi was born to just know what was good and what was not good to eat! I wish he was still here to teach more of his teachings.

  24. Sebi was an Awesome Dude ! He has helped me tremendously with my health issues. He had diagnostics sheets Proving proving proving that he was curing diseases. The chose is yours ladies and gentlemen. Listen to disinformation trying to plant doubt in his finding. The man was special. The man risked his life to show the world the truth. Ultimately they got him but the word is out.

  25. I believe what Dr. Sebi meant by hybrid foods being really bad is that yes some foods such as turmeric and garlic and like lemons are hybrids that are curable to people but are probably made by man to cure people, kind of like medicine. I wished dr. Sebi would of explained more of his evidence and discoveries, but you gotta give it to him, he’s cured people from numerous diseases that are supposedly not curable. Gives people hope.

  26. I’m a black scientist , and my family orginates from Jamaica, I like Dr Sebi, but I’m a bit conflicted by what his says especially ,when I have a grandma and other family members in Jamaica that are over 100 years old and eat all vegetables. I was raised on all vegetables and honestly I have never had a cold and I am in perfect health it was until I started consuming American food that I got mucus.

    We are all genetically made up very differently and what’s for one is not for all .

    I respect him but prefer Dr Gerson’s approach

  27. The thing about carrots, corn anda potatoe, is that you need ti get them organic,, othee wise it can be really hard forma your body yo process, even allergies may happen i think thats the point, about rice he is right, thats why you shoudnt eat it hot, in japan that one of the reasons they eat it cold, in sushie, and the culture is slim, as in china, they Eat a lot if cooked,and hot rice, and their culture is full of ‘fat’ people,… And, you also need ti consider,, that, whats good for me, it’s not always going to be good for you, i recommend listen to your body, and try to get your veggies and fruit from a loca farmer.

  28. In truth and without bias, this article has nothing positive to say about Dr Sebi, his works, nor his achievements. Anyone with brains the size of a peanut could see that upon reading this article, the reader would be incline to have less faith and even less regard for the works of Dr Sebi, which is the underlying (hidden subtle) objective of this article. Think about it, when you finish reading this article, what impression of Dr Sebi was left on your mind?

    The author of this article encourage you to eat healthy, but not to eat healthy as a result of the effort and works of Dr Sebi, instead eat healthy while at the same time be weary and suspicious of the works of Dr Sebi, because he is a conflicted inconsistent man (and he’s put up an image of Dr Sebi to subconsciously drive home this point). The author of this article employ tactics generally found in mass media mainstream newspapers and tv news programme, it is a sleight of hand technique. During the course of reading this article one would come across few positive lines, giving the impression that the author is indeed pro Dr Sebi. But hold on, continue reading and you would soon see that a much more stronger emphasis is made and heavily stressed upon if and when it serve to discredit the works of Dr Sebi. Though in parts it may seem that this article is of credit to Dr Sebi, but in whole its function and objective is to discredit the life’s work of Dr Sebi.

    No Science or research is stagnant, stagnation is death. Therefore, Dr Sebi’s advice, recommendations and ingredients keep changing as new information comes to light. This is common in all works of life, to somehow use this as means to point towards his lack of education or what-not is just #NoWords.

    There is a difference between organic and natural food. You can take a GMO seed and grow it under organic conditions and call it organic, then use your favourite celebrity to promote it, and also use website like this to promote it. However, is it really organic? NO. A lot of so called organic food we eat today are not originally organic and are not natural food, that is they were not formed or created by nature. They were created in the lab and then planted and grown under organic conditions.

    A lot of natural food has been compromise in the name of mass production. in order to grow these food crops in any climate, the genetic and chemical properties of these food crops were modified, and then re-introduce to nature. Think about it, how is it you find food crops that can originally only grow in the hot climates of Africa, suddenly started growing in the cold climates of Europe or elsewhere in the world? what happened? what changed?

    How is it you have seedless orange? orange can only be planted by sowing its seed, if an orange has no seed, what do you then plant to grow it? where do you get the seed that you would use to plant that orange. THINK !!!

    Such is the depth of the wisdom and knowledge and understanding of Dr Sebi

  29. Bottom line he has proven what he has cured with thousands of authentic testimonies. First thing is to accept that he accomplished this things several times and then look at his plan. Maybe there are hybrids that may be ok but Sebi either found something wrong with them or didn’t know enough about them, so it’s not on the list. Oh well maybe more research would prove there are more alkaline foods out there. His blueprint is authentic and it’s truth. If we can get past the mental block of combating this maybe we can fully understand his practices more efficiently. Would you not try the no risk no side effect all natural way? Or the chemical, inauthentic, less than 100 percent natural say? Common since, the man cured several people of AIDS, herpes, cancer, blindness, etc. What more do you want?

  30. Don’t let this article mis lead you. There is only one man in the history of the planet to cure diseases and prove it in court of law( especially in a big pharma world)There can be benefits to hybrids but the end result becomes acid. Kinda like if you poor drain cleaner in your car engine The engine would be clean but that’s not gunna be good for your car running in the end. There is a lot of history dr sebi has had to gone threw, that’s why his food list changes(barley). There has only been like 5 or 6 foods that has changed out of a hundred. But his message is simple. You don’t need to be a doctor or have to have any studies to understand that nature put the correct food heer for us. And anything else would be a violation of nature and it’s change our chemistry.

  31. Oh ya one more thing. Dr sebi never said you can’t cook nutrition out of food. He said you can’t cook the electricity out of it. Which is the real benefit of healing

  32. Check out his relations with Lisa left eye Lopez and Micheal Jackson. Right before Michael Jackson was killed by big pharma he was going to open dr sebi hospitals in Africa and across the world to really start healing people. Lisa also tried to get the word out with her celebrity platform and they both ended up dead. Just like de sebi!! Clearly the elites don’t want his info out to the public.

  33. Last but not least! I love 100th seed and follow them on IG. The put out a lot a great info and really are making a difference! Hybrids are my only disagreement with them. Hybrids fruits and vegetables are still much better than eating meat, dairy and processed foods of course. I am purely referring to if you are trying to heal yourself completely. Stay away from hybrids

  34. I respect Dr. Sebi and his work. One must understand that he was helping the sick, mainly Afro Americans, who were seriously ill, from all the unhealthy crap forced upon the black race to eat, from generation to generation, dating back to when blacks were brought here on slave ships. Suddenly this race of beautiful, healthy, strong people, who were once eating healthy plant based diets with fresh fruit and veggies, are now forced to eat some of the worst parts of a pig, like chitlins (where the crap comes out), pigs feet, hog head cheese, etc. making them seriously sick with illnesses they never had or even could think up! Yes, there are a lot of foods he didn’t list to consume for a reason. A lot of foods we consume this day and age are making us sick without us even knowing it, and we are thinking we are eating healthy. Dr. Sebi was more interested in using the foods he knew from his roots, that would help heal folks, and reverse their diseases. The foods on his list are foods he knew would help and not hinder. There are a lot of ancient foods we are still discovering to this day that are healthy for us. But if one is seriously sick right now, I wouldn’t get angry because my favorite fruit or grain or veggie isn’t on Dr. Sebi’s list. I would want to get well the quickest way possible, with what he recommended. I watched the movie, “What the Health” which further shed some light on why we shouldn’t eat animals, dairy, and processed foods, which has even convinced football teams to go vegan. I wonder if Dr. Sebi made the same movie, would so many folks be as accepting to the things being said?

  35. Dr. Sebi changed my life after I started his diet. I have nothing but praise for him. He took the time put this information out there whether it was his or another’s work it has saved lives because he took the time to educate black people about their bodies and what we need nutritionally. Rest in eternal peace Dr. Sebi 🙏🏾

  36. You promote hybrid foods, those foods that are man made and do not occur in nature; because there no research to support Dr. Sebi’s claims that they are harmful. Ask yourself who is doing the research into hybrid foods, and what you will find is that it is the same organizations that have a vested interest in the market success of hybrid foods. You may indeed work for such an organization. The fact remains, the closer we get back to nature, the better off we will be and that includes avoiding anything that is not natural.

  37. Dr Sebi is right. We are talking about higher levels of energy. Because non-hybrid foods haven’t been hybridized they haven’t lost their powerful nutritive and electrical properties. This doesn’t mean they are more dangerous than meat! From a spiritual viewpoint, non-hybrids carry the “original awareness” with which they were created. When an herb’s “consciousness” or awareness unites with the consciousness of a human cell, this empowers the cell to function as it was originally created.

  38. I’m an advocate for dr.sebi. but I take everything with a grain of (sea) salt. Thanks for your knowledge. An we need to remember. Do your own research. Know your body. Not your friends or neighbor’s. Trial and error. But its good to trade health knowledge. God bless and eat well

  39. You are just delusional and don’t want to eat the things you’re supposed because most the things you like are NOT on the list, and you are mentslly weak.
    Do you really think a person needs to attend a College to be smart?
    If so, you’re even more stupid and delusional than I first said.
    He STUDIED these herbs/plants/foods. And that’s the proof.
    But continue poisoning yourselves and die early or end suffering a lifetime on meds.

  40. He stated that that’s not ancient enough you didn’t research nature itself. We weren’t meant to consume those things. He eliminated it and has proven to heal almost every disease we know. We will always battle the truth somehow that’s the sad part.

  41. Well Put Anthony. To add, yes our ancestors lived until they were in their 90’s because the foods they ate where not filled with chemicals as they are today. We have to use wisdom and study. There is a deadly epidemic going on today with Romaine Lettuce. Even though its on the SEBI list we use wisdom and not eat store bought romaine unless it is certified organic. You don’t need to buy the supplements if you do not have an illness. The Alkaline foods heal the body. There are others who have picked up where DR. Sebi left off and have done great work. Look for a book called “Alkaline Herbal Medicine” by Aqiyl Aniys. You can prepare you own herbal treatments if needed. Its a cost for everything. Dr. Sebi could not do this for free.

  42. In my opinion the man had genius and his godliness combined is what put him a cut above andcis how he found the answers. I’m sad that I only recently found or about him and I live in Brooklyn. I would have been at his lecture with bells on. I’ve been eating all the supposed good foods always and wound up anemic with a fatty liver. I also don’t believe lemons and garlic ever cured anyone of anything sorry.
    God bless Dr. Sebi’s soul.
    He came to heal and has and will continue to and that’s a beautiful thing just as was intended.

  43. Can u mention a few people that he has actually cured and also proof, aside from who he mentioned. ive been searching and haven’t really found anyone. I have found people who went to the USHA clinic who left frustrated and not cured. Thanks it would really help.

  44. I agree, his education history was unnecessary to bring up, Debi had many people show up in court to prove he knew what he was doing, not to mention celebs he helped like Michael Jackson etc.

  45. Typo, was saying why not write your own non-biased or non-slanting article?

  46. I think reason why he healed people is simply because they went from sad diet to eating healthy whole food…not because they did not eat ,toxic beets and broccoli,
    Im.so happy for this article and agree with u! i am quite sad for confusion his followers r creating for people.who try their best to heal. Is pretty annoying…

  47. Africans DNA is different from Europeans
    Our bodies require a different diet…
    Foods should be natural… and NOT made.
    It’s everyone’s right to eat what they please..where my ancestors came from they ate off the land and what God had for them to eat. It wasn’t until we were stripped from EVERYTHING, that we were introduced to a European toxic diet and religion but that’s a WHOLE different topic but it all has to do with the same thing….

  48. I can understand that his list is very limited but he is getting results. You asked for evidence. Well he went to court and proved he was healing people from terimnal illnesses. He won the case, so how much more evidence do you need?

  49. But …. if you think about it … all (or the majority of ) these diesese are man made … so wouldn’t a man made food that was designed to heal help to counteract ? ( chemically speaking)
    And everyone is entitled to their opinion and this is a good opinion
    And you have some that agree with your opinion and some that don’t .
    Based on your research You found what’s best for you
    That’s all that matters
    But what dr sebi said
    And dr Gerson said is based off of research
    That they did over years and years
    With more than one human body ( their own)

    I just think instead of getting up set and annoyed and angry
    You just live and learn and share your experiences and others will find their own solution and balance that works for them
    We all aren’t wolves
    But we all aren’t sheep either

  50. There’s a reason why foods are so frequently removed and added…it’s simply because a “vegan” diet is bullshit. Lol Do i have your attention now? EVERY fad diet out there is bullshit. The reason why is because There’s no way a list of 100 foods will have the same effect on me as it does you, or even my parents and i… Like with medicines (food is medicine). Different people will respond differently to different types of foods. The fact of the matter is that you have to find what works EXACTLY FOR YOU and your DNA. You cannot just tell 100 people to do a vegan diet and expect the same results. In any case, foods that were added before May have worked on persons 1-3 but then caused an adverse effect on persons 4-25…so with me, i feel amazing when i eat chicken- I’m not vegan, but i use some of sebis tricks. Sebi was smart he just ran out of time, because had he been given the resources, he would’ve figured out that everyone is different. Some people can have milk and be fine. Some can have beef and be fine. But yes there are some that cannot! So not trying to stir any crap here, just stating the truth.

  51. Rice – arsenic
    Apples – inorganic lead
    Beets – inorganic lead (made in Holland)
    Cinnamon – cyanide
    Vanilla bean – little cyanide (ok in small amounts) hybrid product of the French
    Carrots – high in starch (sterile, no seed to reproduce itself, also made in Holland
    Turmeric- (sterile, unnatural)
    Liquorice – contains glycyrrhizic ACID, increases sodium retention, depletes potassium
    Sugar cane – highest concentration of starch
    Corn – hybrid(original form is Tiocente, found is Central America)
    Potatoes – originated in Peru, the Irish took the seeds and began to hybridise it)
    Lemongrass – raises blood pressure really quick
    Celery – highest concentration of inorganic sodium
    Garlic – contains allyl d sulfide (3.3 ph very acid) soldiers used to rub bullets in garlic) there’s a video on YouTube
    Almond – contains hydracyanic acid (cyanide)
    Maple syrup – natural BUT, recommend you avoid as It contains formaldehyde used to keep the hope in tree open longer.
    Nutmeg – cyanide, boiling it and drinking the water can kill you
    Soybeans – inorganic silica, eats your IRON

  52. Much of what he talks about needs to be looked at closely but not rejected because he did not go to school…Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Jackson did not attend school but we accept their occupation as an attorney and later the President of the USA…therefore, we do need to do further exploration because we can NEVER know everything but we can build upon those that have tried and come before us…

  53. First off Dr Sebi was n is the truth…And his teachings was Alkaline Diet eating Alkaline foods to cure n heal the body…his teachings wasn’t specifically for Vegans or a Vegan diet…Secondly I to have done my research on all Dr Sebi claimed and 98% of what he said is fact…Now hybrid fruits n veggies Dr Sebi never said you’ll die on spot if u eat them type foods or that there’s nno benefits to it…point is this overtime consuming these type of foods is the reason we have disease’s and sickness. And all other bullshiCris Cuz of the diet we consume and not just food but everything’s plays apart. …..its foolish to think anything hybrid should be eating as oppose to natural …See people aare crazy no discipline victims to there desires and fckd up Egos…Dr Sebi logic and teaching based on this Alkaline Electric foods and herbs for the maintaining of the mind and body and to eat food that are Natural period not man-made to which logically why would you choose a hybrid when u can have the natural. ..

  54. Gerson went in front of Congress after world war 2 with 500 documentmented cases of cancer he cured. They kicked him out of the country and he opened a healing center in Mexico. I think they were great men that helped a lot of people.

  55. So here is my theory on why people get healed on carrot juice… the carrot juice is not doing the healng but the body is. we are talking about carrot juice fast right? well it could have been any similair type fast and the same result might have occured because the most important thing we do when we fast is we stop taking in garbage and the digestive system gets a rest. carrots according to Sebi will have little to no nutritional value so a carrot juice fast would be very similar to a water fast- also known to be beneficial for healing various health issues. …dont get it twisted Dr Sebi was a self taught biochemist, engineer, and herbalist- he did studies

  56. Dr. Sebi’s Nutritional Guide does not contain permanent foods to eat because anything can change based on what these killers are doing to our food supply. I can safely say this guide did wonders for me. Yes, I gave up the carrots, broccoli, spinach, etc. because if that stuff was beneficial then all ailments would have shifted. I didn’t see good health results until I followed Dr. Sebi’s NG fully. My father has prostate cancer and Dr. Sebi’s NG improved his health majorly but when he started back eating things like Carrots, Broccoli, Sugars, Bad Oils, etc., his health diminished again. Every doctors appointment was a disappointment. Dr. Sebi has proven that his method cured many people of diseases and you don’t need much more than that to trust his NG alone. It’s optional to buy his herbal/supplement products anyways so no it’s not about money or the ingredients would be a secret!

  57. Pingback: The Health Benefits of Black Salt

  58. From childhood I’ve been eating all the things that are claimed to make us healthy – blood and starch, etc. and they didn’t help. But since I’ve been following Dr. Sebi my health is so much better. I don’t need to eat animal organs anymore to get so called iron from them. I’m glad that one black man was not afraid to use the herbs that the Almighty made to heal.

    Not because Dr. Sebi didn’t go to school makes him a dunce. So many people have studied but have not cured anyone. I’ve researched the origin of carrot. It was made from wild yam and yarrow in a lab in the Netherlands. You just need to open your eyes to see that the foods given to us are poisoning us so that the phamarceutical industry will continue to thrive. We must stop digging our graves with our teeth.

  59. I don’t follow Dr. Sebi’s diet 100% and I still eat meat and rice. Unfortunately, the environment I am living in doesn’t provide that many food choices. My gut feeling, however, tells me that Dr. Sebi if not 100% but was probably 99% right most of the time.

    Garlic, for example, has a pH of 3.3. I read in one of the comments that garlic is alkaline; that’s completely false.
    Also, at one time, I thought I found a perfect cough mixture by using garlic; ginger and apple cider vinegar until the mixture started having a negative effect on me after frequent consumption.

    After a little bit of research I found out that garlic, yes at first, will help to clear your arteries and lower your blood pressure; but it doesn’t stop there, it will continue to eat up your intestinal linings and finally ruin your health in the long run with continued consumption.

    Garlic is also known to eat up your brain and lead you to Alzheimer in your old age.

    Other researchers have found garlic to be poisonous and recently have even linked garlic to a causation of cancer.

    I have taken so many laxatives in the past but the Dr. Sebi Chelation 2 is the best, don’t take my word for it give it a try, it will give you the perfect bowel movements second to none.

    White rice was recently found by the scientific world to be dangerous for the cognitive development of kids and Recommends limited consumption as far as possible. Meanwhile Dr. Sebi told is about the dangers of rice other than wild rice ages ago.

    Another fact science is just catching up on is sugar. Dr. Sebi countless times touted sugar as harmful.

    So, for me, take it or leave it Dr. Sebi is the ultimate guide for me.

  60. all of the foods Dr Sebi said we shouldn’t eat is because he studied them and I’m not one to just listen to claims someone make I also studied them in which what he say about certain fruits and vegetables are true someone mentioned that garlic was considered alkaline and it is not garlic is very toxic to the body in which it kills blood cells the problem is that people are just looking at the good side of certain fruits and vegetables and not the bad side take the time to really research what Dr Sebi say about certain foods that we shouldn’t eat and the claims that is made in this article are false you say there’s no evidence on the food Dr Sebi say we shouldn’t eat give me one food you couldn’t find any evidence on and I’ll direct you to the evidence

  61. I agree with everything you have said. I have looked up several foods on his list and found some discrepancies. For example, broccoli. I have not found any claim as of yet that supports broccoli as being toxic.I am an alkaline vegan for a little over a year. My cousin started this diet. I have followed all things she has stated as well, yet I also have found some discrepancies in her views also. I am confused.

  62. Omg yall seem brain dead get a real life and enjoy life eat healthy forget processed rubbish and eat organic stay away from processed foods and stop worrying so much love yourself and most important love each other god will guide each and everyone peace🌪

  63. I mean what you’re saying sounds plausible but you realize your doubting a man who has numerous cases of apparently incurable diseases under his belt so I mean you make sense but you also haven’t done anything spectacular to be looked at as an authoritarian and if you’re not an authoritarian – then you’re probably a hater.

  64. I have to admit that I too, found Dr Sebi claim of not having gone to school strange. A lot of the things he discussed require schooling but I understand that one can be self taught. Then on one video he claim he never read a book and that I had a hard time believing. I know the man was 1. Very intelligent 2. Knowledgeable about the subject, but some of his claims don’t add up.

    Then I found the following books, 1. Rational Fasting 2. The mucusless diet healing system, by Professor Arnold Ehret. The following is what I found about the author.

    (Professor Arnold Ehret was a German philosopher, nutritionist, teacher, healer, and visionary, and one of the first people to advocate fasting and raw vegan diets as therapies for healing. For over 100 years, his works and teachings have been based on the theory that health, happiness, and longevity can only be found by living in complete harmony with the laws of nature.)

    I think Dr Sebi was a very intelligent man, but I believe he was familiar with Arnold Ehret’s work. Let’s not forget he tells of his 90 day fast being the advice of a Mexican healer so he did learn from others at least enough to lay a foundation for his views on nutrition.
    I bought both books by Ehret, can’t wait to read them.

    My interest on the mucusless diet started because before I heard of either Dr Sebi or Ehret I did a 21 day water fast as a Spiritual/mental/ and physical cleanse and over all reset. I began to notice that this lingering congestion I had for years was clearing up to the point where I could smell things I couldn’t before. I was able to take very deep breaths. When I broke the fast and began to eat I started to become congested again and immediately noticed that certain foods where causing the mucus build up. And thus I came across DR Sebi and now Professor Arnold Ehret, I sincerely believe that fasting along with a proper plant base diet is the key to long health.
