Dr. Sebi from Spanish Honduras has been claiming for years to be able to cure some of the deadliest and ‘incurable’ diseases known to man. His claims include having cured people with cancer, HIV/AIDS, stroke, diabetes, arthritis, STDs and even sickle Cell. The doctor uses herbology to treat his patients. The limelight of his career and big claims came when he was taken to court in 1988 by New York’s Attorney General. Interestingly, the court dropped the case by passing the ruling in the doctor’s favor.
Power of Herbal Healing
According to Dr. Sebi, he relies on the power of the herbs in helping with healing. His inspiration for finding the answer in ‘healing’ comes from the Bible itself. He strongly believes that whatever ails a human being can be cured using natural alkaloid herbs combined with specially formulated vegetarian diet which he refers to as ‘electric foods.’
The main ingredients of this electric food include starch-free breads, mushrooms, and greens. Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, also emphasized on using the power of herbs for curing medical conditions. Dr. Sebi claims that inflammation is at the heart of all diseases and his herbal solutions work by addressing it.
Before Sebi created his natural herbal remedies he was himself cured of diabetes and obesity by a Mexican doctor using the same principles. Since then Dr. Sebi took upon him to use the herbal powers to cure various conditions and over the years he has succeeded in curing everything from HIV/AIDS to anything as simple as general weakness. One of the notable cases is from 1993 when Dr. Sebi released a medical affidavit that claimed to have cured HIV in a patient just two months later.
Celebrities Treated by Dr. Sebi
Today, Dr. Sebi has thousands of people worldwide who claim to have benefited from his natural herbal solutions. Famous American artists Lisa ‘Left Eye’ and Michael Jackson are among the most popular patients of the doctor. He also claims to have helped Steven Seagal.
Lisa Lopes – Lisa underwent treatment for severe alcoholism, smoking and personal/professional-life stress and strain at Dr. Sebi’s tiny village located in the heart of nature. Her treatment included 40 days of fasting and special herbal treatment at the doctor’s beautiful village. After being treated and fully cured, Lisa played a key role in taking Dr. Sebi’s name to the world.
The doctor has also claimed to have helped Michael Jackson fight and treat his addiction to painkillers. Dr. Sebi was often seen in the company of the late pop star.
Legal Action against Dr. Sebi
The New York AG’s Office sued Dr. Sebi in 1988 for advertising in print media that he could cure any medical condition. During the trial he was required to present proof in the form of at least a single cured patient for each of the 10 major conditions. The court was overwhelmed to witness 70 patients who were cured by the herbalist. The judge not only dropped the case, it was also ruled in the doctor’s favor.
