In loving memory of Dr. Sebi

"I say to my brothers and sisters, if nothing else we do, let us be tolerant of each other… and share LOVE." — Dr. Sebi, November 26, 1933 – August 6, 2016

Alfredo Bowman, lovingly known as Dr. Sebi, was an extraordinary man. He was more than a master herbalist, healer, and teacher — he was a beloved father, son, grandson, brother, and an admirable human being who lit up this world.

Our guiding light left this world six years ago, yet his presence is strongly felt now more than ever.

Through the love and support of his beloved community, family, friends, and followers, Dr. Sebi’s work has continued to touch and help millions of people from different ages, cultures, and backgrounds all around the world.

Family, Nature, and Balance

Dr. Sebi credits his grandmother, Mama Hay, with raising him and providing him with his life-long devotion to Mother Nature and her healing power. Growing up in the bush of Honduras, Dr. Sebi’s life’s work is inspired by the ancestral herbal wisdom Mama Hay taught him to live by.

Mama Hay gave her grandson certain ethical and moral standards because she knew that one day I would have to face the world.” — Dr. Sebi

As a young man, Dr. Sebi suffered from a variety of chronic conditions, including asthma, impotence, obesity, and diabetes. As many of us can relate to, he found limitations with Western medicine — it could not cure his conditions. He saw countless doctors for his various ailments and was unable to treat the ailments that plagued him. It wasn’t until he met a natural healer in Mexico during his travels that he fully understood that nature could be a powerful healing tool. As the plants that helped heal him have roots, so do the underlying causes of chronic conditions. He realized that a body cannot fully recover if you do not treat the roots of illness.

Upon curing himself through the use of natural herbs, he embarked on a journey to study, understand, share, and heal as many people as he could.

The Power of Nature, the Power of Love

Dr. Sebi dedicated his life to the pursuit of natural disease prevention and health management through plant-based solutions. His goal was to naturally and effectively detox and nourish the body through natural botanical remedies and a plant-based diet outlined in his Nutritional Guide.

Hippocrates said that your medicine should be your food, and your food should be your medicine.” – Dr. Sebi

As a master herbalist, he was profoundly passionate about utilizing the gifts that nature bestows to help heal and nourish the body and mind. He cared for people deeply and wanted to eliminate suffering and disease for all humankind.

Dr. Sebi believed in the power of love — he believed that love was a powerful healing tool in more ways than one. Receiving love and kindness from people in our lives can have remarkable effects on the spirit and body. When we are sick, we may not feel love in the same magnitude as when we are healthy. Dr. Sebi was also a champion of self-love, firmly believing that loving yourself is the first step in one’s health journey.

Because the one thing you want to do is to LOVE, and that love should begin with you. Once you love you, you love the whole world.” – Dr. Sebi

Dr. Sebi’s kindness, devotion, and love are his greatest legacy.
