Dr. Sebi
Diet Guide
Hello and welcome!
I am Michael Berlin, a guy in his mid-20s from Brooklyn, New York.  

I have been an alkaline vegan, detox-advocate, and proponent of the Dr. Sebi Healing Method for over four years now.

If you recently learned about the Dr. Sebi Healing Method and are not sure on what to eat, then this is the perfect guide for you! 

By the end of this guide, you will know everything you need to know about alkaline diet and how you can use the Dr. Sebi Food List to alkalize your body, cure disease, and start living your best life!
Who is Dr. Sebi?
Alfredo Bowman (Dr. Sebi) is a world-famous African healer who created a simple yet powerful healing method using alkaline vegan diet, liquid fasting, and certain detox herbs to cure virtually any disease. 

Dr. Sebi's claim of being able to cure any disease with his natural healing methods was upheld in a 1993 New York Supreme Court case where 77 of Dr. Sebi's patients (who had previously been afflicted with various "incurable" diseases such as cancer, AIDS, diabetes, arthritis, etc.) stood on trial and provided medical evidence that their diseases were indeed reversed through Dr. Sebi's healing methods.
What is the Dr. Sebi Food List?
One of the gifts Dr. Sebi left in his legacy is the Dr. Sebi’s Food List. Through over 40 years of field research and experimentation, Dr. Sebi compiled a list of foods which are closest to nature and are most symbiotic with the human genome.

The foods on this list:
  • 1) alkalize the body, allowing the body to function more optimally and prevent the growth of harmful microorganisms in the mucous membrane that exists between our cells. 
  •  2) clean the digestive system, the mucus membrane, and the entire body of accumulated toxins such as overgrown bacteria, parasites, viruses, the waste from these organisms, inorganic mineral deposits and heavy metals, dead or decomposing cells, pus, and the excess acidic mucus which houses these toxins. The cleansing properties of these foods are especially powerful when it comes to our digestive systems, which house about 80% of our immune system.
  •  3) are very easy for the body to process and digest, thus allowing the body to invest more of its resources into healing rather than wasting them on more digestively-demanding foods. 
How are foods chosen to be on the Dr. Sebi Food List?
It should be known that all of the foods we eat are compromised in one way or another on the genetic level. 

The corruption of our food can happen through genetic modification, cross-breeding, pesticides, fertilizers, soil depletion, or any combination of these factors. Unless you find an untouched plant in the wild and plant it in untouched soil, there is some always some level of corruption in the genetic structure of the food.

Because the genetic structure of the food we eat is not symbiotic with nature, it is also not symbiotic with our bodies. That being said, we must still try our best to eat as close to nature as possible. The problem is that, with all these factors that corrupt our food, there is no easy way to tell which foods are more symbiotic or less symbiotic with nature and the human body.

And therein lies the power of the Dr. Sebi Food List!

This list was created through 40+ years of field research and experimentation, and this is powerful because seeing the effects of the food on the human body is the only way of gauging which foods are most symbiotic with the human body.

Foods that are most symbiotic to the human body produce the greatests results in terms of curing disease.

And considering Dr. Sebi cured a slew of “incurable” diseases such as cancer, AIDS, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, etc., it goes to show that the food list he created to do so has unrivaled merit.  
Without further ado, here is the Dr. Sebi Food List:

SIDENOTE: I have been on the Dr. Sebi diet for over 4 years now, so I have a lot of experience with the foods on this list (especially grains such as amaranth, kamut, spelt, tef, rye, etc. which nobody seems to know about), so if you want to know my recommendations and where to get this stuff, please click here for the My Recommendations section further down the page!
What foods are not on the Dr. Sebi Food List and why?
If you look at this list, you might notice that many of the foods that are generally thought to be “healthy,” such as carrots, beets, celery, spinach, and others are not on the list!

The reason why a certain food is not on the list depends on what it is, so let’s go through all the categories of food that are not on the Dr. Sebi Food List:
Animal Products (Meat, Eggs, Milk, Cheese, Fish, etc.)
It is a known fact that every single animal product in the world, bar none, is acidic in the human body once ingested.

It is also a known fact that any animal product including meat, dairy, fish, and all others contain swarms of pathogens, bacteria, parasites, viruses, and the waste from these organisms. These organisms are often highly resistant to environmental factors, which means that they do not die from heat (cooking) and they do not die during digestion. They remain alive as they enter our bodies from the animal products we eat.

These harmful microorganisms live in the mucus membrane that exists between each of our cells, and they make this mucus (and our bodies in general) more acidic the longer they reside inside of us. Bacteria, parasites, and viruses thrive in acidic (or deoxygenated) environments.

Once settled in our bodies, these microorganisms will bind to healthy cells and change their functioning en masse in ways that support the invading microorganisms and hurt our bodies. Our cells regularly send signals throughout the body to alert our immune system of any sort of pathogens or foreign toxins. However, once the DNA of the cell is corrupted by these microorganisms, the reprogrammed cells start sending conflicting signals to the immune system, and thus the body does not react as it normally would in the presence of these microorganisms, allowing them to wreak all the havoc they like. When the immune system is compromised in such a way, this is known as chronic inflammation, and chronic inflammation is the root of all disease.

So when we avoid animal products, we also avoid the cycles of acidity, excess mucus, and chronic inflammation that lead to chronic disease.

Hybrid Plants
A “hybrid plant” is a plant which does not exist in nature. 

Hybrid foods are the product of cross-breeding, or forceful cross-pollination, of plants or animals (different than GMO-engineered food). Cross-pollinated, hybrid plants are extremely likely to have an incomplete genome. 

Hybrid plants are basically genetic mutants that do not work within the larger symbiosis of nature or the human body. This is why none of these hybrid plants can be found in nature, because they are unable to survive within nature’s symbiosis, and this is also why it is necessary to breed hybrid foods exclusively on farms and in labs which do not mimic nature’s conditions. This is also the reason why many of these hybrid plants are acidic, whereas naturally-occurring plants are almost always alkaline.

One example of a hybrid plant is brown/white rice, which was engineered from what is now called “wild rice” and a series of other crossbred crops. However, conventional brown/white rice turns the body acidic, while naturally-occurring wild rice is highly alkaline.

Other examples of hybrid plants include carrots, corn, beets, turnips, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, garlic, spinach, cabbage, soy, wheat, and many others. Seedless fruits such as seedless watermelons, grapes, tomatoes etc. are also hybrid plants.

Of course, eating carrots, broccoli, and seedless grapes will be more much, much more effective to the healing process than eating eggs, meat, and cheese, but if we wish to heal as effectively as possible, we must eat as close to nature as possible, which means eventually cutting down on or eliminating hybrid foods as well.

Fun fact: Chickens, pigs, cows, and virtually all other animals that are produced for consumption today are all hybrid animals! These hybrid animals, like hybrid plants, were selectively cross-bred with other species over generations to create animals that would produce the greatest yield for a farmer in terms of meat, eggs, milk, etc. This is a good thing to know, but doesn’t really matter because we know to avoid animal products anyway!

Sticky Foods
Before we get into what “sticky foods” means, let us start with an analogy.

One may consider the human body as a complicated system of elastic tubes. These tubes exist on many levels, or scales, whether we consider large blood vessels, or tiny microscopic capillaries, or our intestinal tubes, or the organelles inside cells. Each of these types of tubes in the body carry the vital life-elements necessary for the body’s survival. Life is dependent on the movement of these life-elements. Once they stop moving, we die.

As described above in the section on animal products, when we introduce toxins into our system, they become obstructions in these tubes on the many levels of the body (in the form of pathogens, bacteria, parasites, viruses, the wastes from these organisms, and the excess mucus which houses them).

These obstructions interrupt the flow of the body’s life-elements and thus interrupt the body’s natural functions, which manifests as chronic inflammation and visible disease. So the idea is pretty simple: we have gunked up tubes that need to be cleaned.

That being said, one of our most important system of “tubes” is our digestive system. There are many substances inside foods that can be considered “obstructions.” However, there are certain foods that can be considered “obstructions” themselves!

When I say “sticky food,” I mean literally any food which would make a good, sticky paste, such as rice, beans, potatoes, wheat, soy, chocolate, and especially starchy and protein-rich foods.

These foods produce a sticky plaque on the walls of the intestines when moving through our digestive system. Given that a person does not actively undergo cleansing, this plaque will accumulate and likely stay in the intestines of a person their entire life. The small and large intestines combined stretch out over 25-feet, which leaves a lot of room for this gunk to accumulate!

Note that all the mentioned “sticky” foods are also hybrid plants. I felt the need to split this into a separate category because while many hybrid plants have this sticky property, other hybrid plants such as carrots, beets, celery, etc. do not. Nonetheless, we should try to avoid both sticky and hybrid foods as much as possible.

GMO Foods
GMO foods are also becoming quite notorious for their negative effects on health. GMO stands for “Genetically Modified” and refers to any plant or animal which has been modified on the genetic level.

Examples of this include weather-resistant foods, insect-resistant foods, fast-growing foods, and others.

Any plant, whether on the Dr. Sebi Food List or not, can be organic or GMO, so make sure your food is labeled "Organic" when you buy it!

The proof is in the pudding on the topic of GMO vs. Organic Foods.

What does your body naturally tell you about which tastes better, a GMO fruit or an organic fruit? The organic one, of course!

This taste difference is felt because organic foods nourish our bodies more effectively than GMO foods since they are more in-line with the genome of the human body

Simple as that.

Alcohol is also a relatively simple one to knock out.

Any form of alcohol is made with fermentation. Fermentation occurs in an acidic, deoxygenated environment

Remember what we said about deoxygenated environments? They are the perfect environments for pathogens, bacteria, parasites, and viruses.  

Alcohol creates largely the same conditions as animal products: it is acidic and will contribute to excess mucus production and chronic inflammation. 

Processed Foods
Processed foods such as processed sugars, processed fats, additives, and preservatives are largely known by the general public to be unhealthy.

But why is it so?

For one reason, processed sugars and fats are always highly acidic.

For another reason, these processed foods are laden with unnatural and inorganic (non-living) chemicals in the form of additives and preservatives. 

These inorganic chemicals, when ingested by the body, will either be rendered unusable by the body and removed (the act of which further ties up the body’s healing resources) and or will be stored in the body as rock-solid, inorganic chemical deposits.

Best Practices and Tips for Optimal Healing
There are a few key tips I picked up over the years that have been very helpful in my healing journey. Some of these tips I have learned from Dr. Sebi’s lectures, while others I have learned through other sources that I later confirmed with personal experience.

That being said, this section is devoted to the best diet tips and practices we can implement in order to heal ourselves and reverse disease most effectively.
Tip 1: Eat a main meal only once a day.
Constantly turning our digestive system off and on throughout the day robs us of energy because it does not allow the body to efficiently allocate its resources. A portion of the body’s resources are always tied up in digesting food, which hinders all the other life processes that the body needs to undergo in order to eliminate disease and detoxify itself.

The solution to this is to have only one main meal per day sometime between the hours of 11AM till around 5PM. This is known as intermittent fasting. When the body’s digestive processes are only operating in this small window, it allows the body to use the all the other hours of the day to focus on healing itself and clearing out the many long-lasting effects of chronic inflammation.
Tip 2: Go to sleep on an empty stomach.
The earlier you have your last meal of the day, the better. In fact, it is most ideal to have an empty digestive system by the time you go to sleep.

There are two reasons for this. The first is that when we sleep is when our bodies are most focused on healing. Eating a lot before bed will take resources away from these crucial healing hours. The second reason is that we cannot defecate while we sleep (obviously), so when we sleep with food in our digestive system, we hold this food for the entire duration of our sleep. This is not ideal because food that stays in the digestive system too long eventually rots and ferments. This unmoving fermented food builds an acidic, sticky plaque on the walls of the intestines which contributes to disease and chronic inflammation.

For these reasons, Dr. Sebi recommended eating not later than 6PM.
Tip 3: Don't mix fruit with other food.
The simple sugars found in fruit require little digestion compared to other starchy or protein-rich foods. Because of this, fruits will leave the body very quickly, in about two to four hours

When combined with other foods, however, the fruit will stay in the body for a much longer time. This leads to fermentation, and fermentation leads to an acidic environment in the digestive system.
Tip 4: Don't eat too many different types of foods together.
Our bodies must produce unique enzymes for each type of food we eat. Eating many types of food in the same meal forces the body to create many different enzymes at once, which diverts more bodily resources toward digestion and away from healing. It is simply not optimal for the body to produce so many types of enzymes at one time. 

In such a case, the body may compromise and not produce enough of a certain enzyme when it comes to more digestively-demanding mixtures of food. When this happens, we do not extract all of the vital elements, such as vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, from the food that we could otherwise be using to nourish ourselves.

It’s also worth mentioning that it is generally much less strenuous to mix fruits with other fruits compared to other foods that are harder to digest such as starchy and protein-rich foods. However, it is still generally optimal to eat only one type of fruit or food at a time.
Welcome to the My Recommendations section!
After following the Dr. Sebi Food List for over four years, I have become quite acquainted with all of the foods on the list.  

When I first began the Dr. Sebi diet upon finding all this stuff out, it was difficult for me to choose where to buy some of the less common foods on the Dr. Sebi Food List out of all available online sources. From personal experience, I found that at least some trial-and-error mistakes are inevitable when trying to find the best products online. 

That is why I have compiled this list of online sources over the years so you don’t have to go through the same stumbling blocks as I did!

In making my recommendations, I take into account both the quality of the food as well as the price (some people overcharge for this stuff like crazy).  I take both of these factors into account so that you can save yourself the trouble of getting ripped off (like I did before, haha)!

With that being said, each item on this list comes from a supplier that I have personally bought from in the past and would recommend most out of all my known online sources

In addition to Dr. Sebi-recommended foods that alkalize the body and help reverse disease, I have also put a few appliances on this list that are very relevant to the same goal of alkalizing the body and reversing disease.  

Every item on this list has been an extemely powerful tool in my healing journey, so I hope it will be the same for you, too! 

Water Distiller
This is clearly not a food but I felt the need to put this at the top of the list of my recommended prodcuts because of just how important it is to have clean drinking water.

Although Dr. Sebi recommends naturally-alkaline spring water or geothermal water, these types of waters are often unavailable or unaffordable for many people. 

For most people who live in urban areas, a water distiller is the only way to acquire safe drinking water, period.

I have used the Megahome Water Distiller every day for years now. 

The electricity cost necessary to produce 1 gallon of distilled water comes out in the range of 25-35 cents per gallon, which is much, much cheaper compared to buying a gallon of distilled water from the store, which could cost around $3-$5 per gallon depending on where you live.  

Simply the act of drinking only distilled water clears out calcified and inorganic mineral deposits in the body. 

Once you drink only distilled water for even a few days, you will start to notice that tap water will feel “heavy” and will start to have an unpleasant undertaste. 

The reason why will become obvious to you once you smell the fluoride and inorganic mineral deposits left behind at the bottom of the water tank after a cycle of distillation. The smell left behind from the supposedly “clean” water we drink every day will leave you speechless!  
That being said, here is my recommended water distiller: 
One of the recommendations Dr. Sebi gave was to fast with either juice or water while taking the Dr. Sebi-recommended healing herbs. This fasting can be done either periodically, such as in the case of intermittent fasting, or for an extended period of time up to 40 days, which is how Dr. Sebi himself cured his lifelong asthma, erectile dysfunction, obestity, depression, and poor eyesight. 

For this reason, a juicer will likely be a very helpful tool for those who want to take on either of these types of fasts.

There are multiple benefits to juicing. Although juicing is not absolutely necessary to reversing disease and fully eliminating the chronic inflammation in our bodies, it is nonetheless a great tool for multiple reasons.

The first reason is because a juicer will extract almost all of the nourishing life substances (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, phytonutrients, etc.) in a fruit without eating the fruit fibers themselves. The fibers of fruit act like a cleaning broom for our digestive system. As they move through our intestines, the fibers scrub away accumulated toxins built up on the walls of the intestine. At the same time, the fruit fibers add more to the volume of work that the digestive system has to perform. This is what I mean: if you want the nutrition of 10 apples, you can eat 10 apples, but then the body’s resources would be more focused on digesting these 10 apples rather than using these bodily resources for healing. Thus, by eliminating fruit fibers, we limit the volume of food we take in, which gives our body more space to devote to healing every day.

The second reason is because, while fruit juice allows us to minimize the amount of food we eat, juice, at the same time, allows us to maximize the amount of nourishment we receive from the life substances in fruit. If you wanted to eat 10 apples, it would nourish you, but it would also take away from the body’s healing processes. However, getting the nutrition from 10 apples is easy when you have a juicer.

The third reason is because it helps to control cravings when liquid fasting or detoxing. Our bodies are not used to taking herb as an energy source, so if a person decides to liquid fast on Dr. Sebi herbs, there will be times where cravings for food pop up. By having a juicer, we can somewhat satisfy these cravings by giving our body an energy source that it is more accustomed to digesting.

I have been juicing with the Breville JE98XL Juicer for years. Along with my water distiller, this juicer has been a very reliable and powerful tool in my life for a very long time.

The price point may be steep for some. One can buy a cheaper juicer for around $100, but I have often heard complaints that these cheaper juicers either 1) do a poor job at extracting all the juices from the fruit, or 2) stop working for no reason after some time. Judging from what I heard from others, it seems you really do get what you pay for in this case. 
That being said, here is my recommended juicer: 
Sweet Flavors
What’s one of the biggest killers in America and the whole world? Sugar!

Specifically, this type of disease-causing sugar comes from the sugar cane plant. Whether white or brown, organic or GMO, refined or not, this type of sugar is always highly acidic, mucus-forming, and will contribute to chronic disease.

However, the sugars from alkalizing, non-hybrid fruits and plants that are symbiotic with the human genome are nourishing and are the human body’s main source of energy.

Fruits are sweet because they contain these healthy sugars, but most fruits are not the best sugar substitutes to bake or cook a sweet dish.

That is why, for baking or cooking, Dr. Sebi recommends either date sugar (because of its very concentrated sweetness) or agave sugar from the agave cactus.

Unlike other refined sugar substitutes which often have an imposing taste, date sugar and agave sugar are very neutral in taste but are as sweet as can be! And instead of contributing to greater acidity and diease in the body like other sugar substitutes, these natural sugars are 1) easy to digest, 2) alkalize the body, and 3) provide plenty of energy throughout the day. 

I have tried both of these awesome sugar substitutes in cookies, breads, or just drizzled on top of any dish that could use a bit more sweet flavor.

That being said, here are my recommended sources for sweet flavors:  
Date Sugar
(12oz Bottle)
Date Sugar
(3lb Bottle)
Blue Agave Syrup
(2-Pack of 3lb Bottles)
Many of the uncommon grains mentioned on the Dr. Sebi Food List such as amaranth, kamut, spelt, tef, etc. can be bought as pastas, breads, or cooking flours. 

I, myself, am a big fan of pasta, so I personally love that these options are available to those who want to alkalize their bodies but still want something tasty from time to time. 

My favorite pasta variant is kamut, but I have also tried amaranth, spelt, tef, fonio, and rye, and they are all amazing! When I eat these grains as pastas or cooking flours, I don’t get the same heavy, dying feeling like I used to get from eating crappy wheat pasta.

Here is another reason why I love the option of Dr. Sebi grains as pastas, breads, or cooking flours. Although we want to cure disease and heal our bodies, it may be difficult to give up all the foods we love at once. For this reason, many people will simply abandon their diet plans because the transition is too hard to make at first. This is why I recommend these grains as pastas, breads, and cooking flours. Many people do not know about these options, but they are powerful when making the transition to an alkaline diet. These grains taste similar to the pasta, bread, and flour that we make from wheat, but instead of producing more acidity and mucus in our bodies, these grains alkalize, nourish, and remove excess mucus from the digestive system and mucus membrane.

That being said, here are my recommended sources for Dr. Sebi grains available as pastas, breads, and cooking flours! 
For those who are new to Dr. Sebi grains and are first-time tryers, these are the products and suppliers I recommend:
