Dr. Sebi: The Man Who Cures AIDS, Cancer, Diabetes and More


By Carolanne Wright

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Meet Dr. Sebi, a pathologist, biochemist and herbalist. He came to the U.S. from Honduras and is on a mission to heal humanity. As it happens, he has been curing some of the most deadly diseases on the planet for almost 30 years. AIDS, cancer, diabetes, lupus and epilepsy are just a few of the ailments he has completely reversed. In fact, he is so committed to his work that he took on the Attorney General of New York in a Supreme Court trial — and won.

Standing Up to the Food and Drug Administration

Back in the 1980’s, Dr. Sebi ran a variety of ads in newspapers like the New York Post, stating: “AIDS has been cured by the Usha Research Institute, and we specialize in cures for Sickle Cell, Lupus, Blindness, Herpes, Cancer and others.” The ad caught the eye of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the agency subsequently sued Dr. Sebi for false advertisement and practicing without a license.

The judge presiding over the case requested that Dr. Sebi provide one witness for each disease he claimed to have cured. When he instead furnished 70 witnesses to support his argument — showing without a doubt that he did in truth heal all the diseases listed in the ad — the judge declared the doctor not guilty on all counts.

Even with his outstanding victory in court, along with testimonials from celebrities and a multitude of people cured by his method, Dr. Sebi’s protocol is still suppressed to this day.

Healing with Electric Foods and Botanicals

The basis behind Dr. Sebi’s approach is clearing the body of excessive mucous, which is believed to be the root of all disease. He explains:

“Our research reveals that all manifestation of disease finds it genesis when and where the mucous membrane has been compromised. For example, if there is excess mucous in the bronchial tubes, the disease is bronchitis; if it is in the lungs, the disease is pneumonia; in the pancreatic duct, it is diabetes; in the joints, arthritis.”

Moreover, mucous in the retina of the eye will cause blindness; if it is found around the thyroid gland, cancer of the thyroid is the result. Basically, disease will arise in the body wherever there’s an accumulation of this stagnant toxin.

According to Dr. Sebi, blood and starch in the diet are the main reasons we can be overrun with clogging plaque. He believes starch is a chemical that wreaks havoc on health, mainly because it causes acidity within the body. The same with animal products. On the whole, an acid body will create toxic mucous and congest the system — leading to inflammation, whereas an alkaline pH will do just the opposite and support vitality.

You may have guessed by this point that consuming an alkaline diet is key. But Dr. Sebi takes his protocol a step further by recommending fasting, along with taking botanical remedies which detox each cell and replace depleted minerals.

The remedies are classified as natural vegetation cell food and nourish cells at a very deep level. Because of this, many find their appetite disappears when they begin using the botanicals. Dr. Sebi notes:

“Although the natural vegetation cell food compounds were designed to extract mucus from a given area of the body, it is also necessary for the body to be cleansed as a whole. What makes our compounds unique is the manner in which they work to cleanse and nourish the entire body.”

The healing diet is found below. It’s important to keep in mind that “Dr. Sebi has recommended the foods that are listed here for the reversal of disease for over 30 years. If your favorite food is missing from the list, our research and results have proven that it has no nutritional value and may be detrimental to your health.[source]

  • Ivan

    What about garlic?

    • Irig

      the author used the term clove imo

      • umyan

        a clove of garlic….. is not referred to the cloves he listed… clove is a spice

  • lola

    That’s it for the teas? There are so many more that have been proven to undo free radical damage..what about green tea? Too much caffeine?

    • Harriet M Luke

      There are no actual health benefits in ‘green tea’. Consider it just a tea bag that flavours the water. :)

    • truthcorrupts

      when it comes to teas, look at asians’ choices. green tea is a false magic tonic.

  • David Hazelton

    starvation of the nation

  • Michael Anderson

    Beam me up, Scotty, no critical thinkers down here.

  • Thomas Brown

    I see no strong source of proteins on the list, shouldn’t beans or fish be added , I see no way they are detrimental to your health.

    • Nana Sampong

      Thomas hemp seeds and avocados have more than sufficient source of protein.

      • Neil Moffatt

        All amino acids in these?

    • SojournHonduras

      Chickpeas are a good source of protein. Dr. Sebi says be careful with beans because many are very starchy and have a pH rating below 7.0. Some beans have a pH rating below 6.0. That means they are on the acid side of the pH scale and not as healthy as food 7.0 and above.

Except flying I guess believing is not enough to make it happen. Being healed tho yeah why not, power of the brain are just being revealed with the recent progress in neuro-science.

  • bakgwailo

    Hey, isn’t this what Steve Jobs tried, it totally worked out well for…

    oh… wait…

    • SojournHonduras

      If you’re insinuating Steve Jobs took herbal compounds and died anyway, please research when Mr. Jobs starting taking the compounds. When his cancer was first diagnosed? Or when he was critically ill and in the late stages of his cancer?

    Our DNA is connected to every living being on this planet, that includes bacteria and our DNA is also in the Universe…because this planet is made up of all matter in the Universe.

  • Rasa Petrauskaite

    Wow! this is an amazing doctor! I’ve done cancer research in the lab in the past, and there’s a lot of scientific evidence for the doctors’ treatment diet. If you want evidence, just do your own search online… It’s very easy to do. Here’s a great database to search on: PubMed http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23781254

  • @georgiadink

    My new life path for healthy living…i have been doing my research. What do you suggest i start with first? No health issues..just better living.

  • Elgin Armstrong

    Uh…. Did i miss it or did he not say where he received his doctorate and what is his PhD?

  • #1Scammer

    The government is a very corrupt power that is held up by pharmaceutical companies and fake credit. The same government has created Abombs to destroy entire civilizations. So you really believe they wouldn’t do everything in their power to keep thus man down.

  • Edgar McGill

    YOU need to do your research before you go around trying to undermine the credibility of another, and just in case you’re having difficulty here’s one a link to one of many supporting documents supporting Dr. Sebi and his methods. However it comes of no surprise that certain capitalist would try and discredit Dr. Sebi because they cannot make money off him and his unorthodox way of healing: https://docs.google.com/document/d/10ytrcbWp4Q6CEkWjdCS-uCOVaCJJ59FuhDODq-9Tvdc/edit?hl=en&pli=1

  • Edgar McGill

    Some of you who deem to try and discredit this Dr., you might try and at least google this man and his methods and see if anyone other than yourselves got any proof that this is all a fraud. In my investigation I did not, so I would conclude that some of you are straight out LYING !!!

  • Blaze14me

    People of color have to realize that we live under a system of white supremacy and they will do anything to discredit a black man who has cured many diseases using nature. Africans had knowledge of this thousands of years ago. Imhotep was the first African to cure all diseases and that knowledge was passed on to others.

    this the same guy liza left eye was living with when she died in that crash in hondoras. i heard they killed here cause she was trying to make it public

    “Anyone who has not received the indoctrination, by the medical and pharmaceutical establishment will keep an open mind, and thus is open to new ideas (or even old ones, that have stood the test of time)”

    It has nothing to do with an “open mind” and everything to do with observational data and reproducible results. Medicine is NOT opinions…

  • Ann Nonymous

    Thank you so much. I cleansed my liver with dandelion salads and tea and artichoke hearts. Milk Thistle too.

  • SojournHonduras

    If you want scientific or medical evidence that Dr. Sebi’s practice is legitimate and has merit, read 2 books: Seven Days in Usha Village: A Conversation with Dr. Sebi is the first one. Dr. Sebi’s Office sells it. In that book you will see medical records for three AIDS patients who were cured, yes cured, with Dr. Sebi’s compounds. You’ll see the “With AIDS” diagnostic sheet and the “Without AIDS” diagnostic sheet for each patient. The second book is Sojourn to Honduras Sojourn to Healing: Why An Herbalist’s View Matters More Today Than Ever Before. The website for that book is http://www.sojourntohonduras.com Also, Dr. Sebi was tried in a New York court under the name Alfredo Bowman. His judge was Amy Feldman. After Dr. Sebi won his case, Judge Feldman became his patient. I hope that helps your research of his case.

  • SojournHonduras

    You’ll find the ingredients on the labels of Dr. Sebi’s compounds. Visit his website. http://www.drsebiscellfood.com Also, his compounds are cell food, not medicine or dietary supplements. There’s not a single artificial ingredient in his compounds.

  • SojournHonduras

    The website is actually http://www.drsebiscellfood.com The telephone number is correct. Many thanks for sharing.

  • SojournHonduras

    The only side effect a person gets from Dr. Sebi’s products is a little bit of cramping the first two or three days. That’s because his herbs are pulling the toxins out of your body. By the third day, the cramps are gone but you still have the bowel movements, which is good because you want a total cleansing and rebuilding of your cells. That’s what Dr. Sebi’s Cell food will do to your immune system: remove mucus and toxins from your cells, then rebuild damaged cells.

  • May Lew

    please help me,,what did u use or take?

  • Andi Jay

    If you have a few thousand dollars to spare, you to can buy NOT A REAL DOCTOR Sebi’s all natural products. ‘All natural’, as in, ‘You can get the same components from simply eating healthy.’ He has taken a basic truth and built himself an empire of followers and a mountain on cash. Many of the people who say Dr. Sebi ‘healed’ them, (by their own admission) were not eating and/or living healthy, or as healthy as possible before. Of course you will become healthier if you eat healthy food and adjust your diet to your personal health needs and/or issues. This quack has accused Angelina Jolie of receiving millions of dollars from the medical industry in exchange for her double mastectomy, (cause she needs the money so desperately she’d maim her self right?) and that Lisa Lopez didn’t die driving a Jeep recklessly as she was known to do, on a dangerous road in Asia, but instead, she was murdered for supporting Dr. Sebi…this guy is an ego maniacal charlatan, preying on the weak, the sick and the disenfranchised. Wake up people and for god’s sake, if you want to be healthy, eat friggin apple instead of a big mac once in a while!
