Dr. Sebi
Herb 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.

Today, I want to share with you some information about the herbs Dr. Sebi used to reverse "incurable" diseases for decades.

If you recently learned about the Dr. Sebi Healing Method and are not sure about what Dr. Sebi herbs do or how to get started with them, then this is the perfect guide for you!

By the end of this guide, you will know everything you need to know about Dr. Sebi herbs, what each herb does specifically and in general, where to buy herbs, how to dose herbs and best practices for taking Dr. Sebi herbs!

Follow this guide and you will be on a one-track path to reversing disease and living your best life!
Who is Dr. Sebi and What are Dr. Sebi Herbs?
Alfredo Bowman (Dr. Sebi) is a world-famous African healer who created a 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.

Speaking generally, the herbs Dr. Sebi used to reverse disease are powerful detox tools because they: 
  • 1) remove the disease-causing obstructions that exist on the many levels of our bodies. These “obstructions” include 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.
  •  2) provide nourishment to the body in ways that most hybrid, GMO, or chemically-fertilized foods cannot. Each of these herbs alkalizes the body and contains many phytonutrients, bioavailable minerals, and other vital life-substances which are missing in our everyday diets.
  •  3) clean the intestines of accumulated plaque, toxins, and excess mucus. This is powerful for our health because the intestines house approximately 80% of our immune system.
Each herb on this list has the general properties listed above. For this reason, any combination of these herbs or even just one type of herb can be used for months to very effectively nourish, clean, and restore the body. 

Take any of these herbs at the recommended dosages (see recommended dosages in the herb guide further down the page) for even just one week and I guarantee you will notice positive changes in your health and vitality. 

That being said, each herb also has its specific properties and a focus on a specific part of the body such as the heart, blood, lungs, lymphatic system, bones/joins/skin, etc. 

If you take a wide variety of herbs that focus on a specific aspect of the body, you will receive a more thorough and intensive cleaning in that part of the body than if you took only one or two types of herbs. Nonethless, even one or two types of herbs will still provide all the powerful effects of alkalizing and nourishing the body and clearing out the long-lasting effects of chronic inflammation (read more about chronic inflammation in the Dr. Sebi Diet Guide). 

Dr. Sebi Herb List
This is a list of herbs Dr. Sebi recommended and publicized before his death. 

It should be noted that this is not a comprehensive list of all the Dr. Sebi herbs. Dr. Sebi researched hundreds, if not thousands, of herbs in his 40+ years of herbalism, so it would be near impossible to create a full list of Dr. Sebi herbs. 

However, the herbs on this list are those that Dr. Sebi spoke of most highly and most frequently because of 1) their potency, 2) their accessibility to a wide audience, and 3) their affordability

In other words, these are the herbs that you will most commonly find Dr. Sebi recommending throughout his video lectures.

I have used every herb on this list throughout my detox journey on a daily- or semi-daily basis with amazing results.

Each herb 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.

From personal experience, I found that at least some trial-and-error mistakes are inevitable when trying to find the best herbal products online. Thankfully, I have compiled this list over the years so you don’t have to go through the same stumbling blocks as I did!

The Dr. Sebi herbs have been extremely powerful tools in my detox journey, so I hope they could serve the same for you, too!

How to Dose and Prepare Dr. Sebi Herbs
This is a simple guide on herb preparation and dosage according to the Dr. Sebi Healing Method. 
According to Dr. Sebi, all herbs should be taken in large amounts. The name of the game is generally to take down as much herb as you can stomach.

There are "recommended doses" prescribed by Western medicine, but these are usually too low to produce noticable healing effects. When people take herbs in these low doses, there are often complaints that they not get the results they wanted or any results at all. 

That is why all the herbs recommended by Dr. Sebi are meant to be taken in bulk amounts. You can't OD on them because your body would vomit them up if you take too much, like any other food. If these were extracts or oils, then this would be a different story and we would have to strictly regulate how much we intake. With Dr. Sebi-recommended herbs however, this is not the case. 

That being said, Dr. Sebi's recommendation when he was alive was 2 tablespoons of mixed herb, 3 times a day,  for a total of 6 tablespoons of mixed herb a day

The herbs are all different weights, but 6 tablespoons of mixed herb daily will generally be in the range of about 30-40 grams of mixed herb a day.
Each herb can be ingested as either 1) a powder in liquid, 2) as an herbal tea, or 3) as a powder in a capsule.

Each method has its pros and cons. Let's go through each one. 
Powdered Herb
Powdered herb can be taken with either water or juice.

You can buy pre-powdered Dr Sebi herbs online or you can buy cut and sifted herbs and grind them into a powder yourself with a coffee grinder.

Pros and Cons of Powdered Herbs
  • PRO: Absorbs more of the herb’s benefits than teas.
  • PRO: Stays in the bloodstream for a longer period of time than teas.
  •    CON: The potency of the herbs demands more bodily resources to the digestive system. Therefore, nausea is a common detox symptom you are likely to experience when taking Dr. Sebi herbs in powdered form.
Herbal Teas
Mix all the herbs you want to take together with one-part each herb. Steep herbs in boiling water for 10-15 minutes and strain them. Add as much water as you wish but try to drink a potent herbal tea with at least one liter of water.  

For teas especially, do not limit how much herb you use. Dr. Sebi herbs are meant to be taken in bulk, so use however much you see fit. 

Pros and Cons of Herbal Teas
  •  PRO: Less nausea symptoms than powdered herbs.
  •    CON: Not all of the herb’s potent substances are absorbed through the tea.
  •    CON: Enters and exits the body and bloodstream quicker than powdered herb, reducing effectiveness. 
The taste of some specific herbs may make it difficult to swallow for some people.

In this case, making your own herbal capsules is very helpful.

Making even hundreds of capsules is easy with a Capsule Machine. This machine has saved me a lot of time in the past because it can make 100 capsules at once!

As for the capsules themselves, I prefer cellulose capsules as opposed to animal-based gelatin capsules.

Pros and Cons of Capsules
  •  PRO: Can get the full potency of powdered herb without unpleasant taste. 
  •  PRO: Generally less accompanying nausea than taking straight powdered herb in water or juice. 
  •    CON: Takes a bit more time to make capsules rather than drinking powdered herb.
Here are the herbal accessories I use that you might find helpful:
Clean Water
No matter how you choose to take them, Dr. Sebi herbs must be taken with clean 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 affordable 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: 
Dr. Sebi herbs can be taken with water, but can also be taken with juice.

For this reason, a juicer might be a very helpful tool for some.

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: 
Best Practices and Tips for Taking Dr. Sebi Herbs
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 tips and practices we can implement in order to heal ourselves and reverse disease most effectively when taking Dr. Sebi herbs.
Tip 1: Remember to stay hydrated.
It’s important to stay hydrated when taking Dr. Sebi herbs. Powdered herbs especially need a lot of water while processing in the body. In addition, many of the Dr. Sebi herbs have diuretic properties, which means you will be passing urine much more frequently.

Dr. Sebi recommends drinking at least one gallon of natural spring water or geothermal water daily. These types of water are ideal because they are most symbiotic to the type of water we would drink in nature. At the same time, these types of water are usually expensive and inaccessible to many, which is why I recommend distilled water as a very worthy alternative. 
Tip 2: Eat a small amount before taking herbs.
Nausea is a common symptom to experience when taking Dr. Sebi herbs. There are many reasons for this, but one of the main reasons is because the herb fibers are difficult to digest, especially because they are a new source of nourishment to the body that the body is not accustomed to processing.

A good solution to decrease nausea while taking Dr. Sebi herbs is to eat a light meal beforehand. This starts up the digestive system and increases the amount of stomach acid produced in the gut, thus allowing the body to process the herb easier and with less nausea symptoms.
Tip 3: Don’t drink water for some time after taking herbs.
Water dilutes stomach acid, so drinking a lot of water while the herb is still in the stomach makes more difficult to digest and increases nausea.

That being said, my recommendation is to hold off on water for about forty minutes to an hour after taking Dr. Sebi herbs, at which point the herbs will pass the stomach and you can dehydrate without feeling nauseous!
Tip 4: 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 5: 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 not eating later than 6PM.
Optimal Schedule for Taking Dr. Sebi Herbs
How can we wrap up all these tips into one optimal schedule?

To find the answer to this question, let’s refer to the treatment that Dr. Sebi’s patients received in his USHA Clinic in Honduras.

Patients at Dr. Sebi’s USHA Clinic were put on a specific schedule of when to eat and when to take herbs. They would eat a small meal around 8 or 9 in the morning, then would take their herbal concoctions. Then patients would eat a larger, main meal around noon and take their herbal concoctions again. Then they would take herbs throughout the rest of the day without eating.

By adopting this diet schedule, we can minimize our nausea symptoms, maximize the amount of herb we can take, and optimize our day for healing.
This is what an optimal schedule for taking Dr. Sebi herbs would look like:
  •  Eat something light when you first wake up, like an apple or some berries.
  •  Wait about 10-20 minutes for the food to pass the stomach. Don’t drink water in this time because it will dilute your stomach acid, making it more difficult to take down the herb fibers.
  •  After 10-20 minutes, take the herb however you prepared it (powder, capsule, or tea).
  •  At this point you may experience some nausea, so take it easy for about an hour while the herb is in the stomach. Don’t drink water during this time either.
  •  After about an hour, drink a lot of water to rehydrate yourself.
  •  In a few hours, around noon or mid-day, repeat these steps with your main meal of the day.
  •  Don’t eat for the rest of the day and take herbs with water throughout the rest of the day as you see fit.
