An Alkaline diet was made popular by Dr. Sebi, a pathologist, herbalist, biochemist, intracellular therapist and naturalist, who was litigated in 1988 in the New York City Supreme Court and faced civil and criminal charges for practicing medicine without a license. Although not a licensed physician, over 70 witnesses had testified that their health was improved as a result of his USHA Village dietary program; after the prosecution failed to convince the jury that Sebi did in fact make a medical diagnosis, he was later found not guilty. Sebi's USHA Village dietary program is based an Alkaline diet which consist of a list of natural foods, natural spring water, plain ripe fruit; non-starchy vegetables, especially leafy greens; raw nuts and nut butters; and grains like quinoa, rye or kamut. Avoid hybrid foods, gmo & acidic foods, which include all animal products, meat, poultry, seafood, products containing a leavening agent all seedless fruits, insect-or weather-resistant crops like corn or certain tomatoes, and anything with added vitamins or minerals like yeast, synthetic or processed items, alcohol, sugar, iodized salt or anything fried.
Sebi has developed a unique approach and methodology to healing the human body with food & herbs that is firmly rooted in over 30 years of experience and has healed well known individuals like Eddie Murphy, the late Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, Michael Jackson and mor. This diet divides all foods into six categories: live, raw, dead, hybrid, genetically modified or drugs, and aid you in tracking what you eat & the effects of it. For mor discipline adherents there is an emphasis on live/raw foods, which is termed "electric foods." Electric foods are naturally alkaline and is the beginning of balancing the pH of bodily fluids, including the urine & blood, eliminating mucus & parasites which are the root to all diseases and can aid in healing the body of the effects of "dead," or acidic foods.
An Alkaline breakfast might consist of a smoothie or shake made from unsweetened raw sprouted walnut butter, pure raw coconut sugar, raw unfiltered coconut milk, sea moss, and star anise or a blueberry Brazil nut spelt roll with a cup of herbal tea such as red raspberry with ginger. Lunch could be a kamut pasta salad containing chopped fresh vegetables tossed with a dressing made from hemp milk and avocado oil. For dinner, you might have a butternut squash mushroom soup topped with bell peppers and a side of sprouted wild rice.
Adherents who switch from a standard American diet that's high in fat, saturated fat, processed and fast foods, refined grains and sugar to an Alkaline diet will certainly lose weight. The increased intake of fruits, vegetables and whole grains paired with the elimination of red meats like beef and pork also significantly decrease the risk of cancer, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol. Most Americans consume too much sodium; electric foods nurture the cells of the body and activate the body's bio-electric conductivity for healing properties in turn lowering the amount you consume dramatically, thereby lowering your blood pressure and reducing your stroke and heart disease risk.
