What you eat is what keeps or kills you – “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”

Have you ever asked yourself the question, “Why do I get sick? I’m pretty sure you did and everyone else did and you are not insane, it’s your right to know. The true fact as far as that question is concerned is that a lot haven’t found the answer sufficient enough and ending up blaming either God or Satan for their sickness. Sickness as defined in the Oxford dictionary is the state of being ill meaning not being in full health. There are various ailments that can affect the human body given that the body is the physical part of a person that is in contact with the earth.

What then causes these ailments? The concept of “humours” (i.e. chemical systems regulating human behaviour) which became more prominent from the writing of medical theorist Alcmaeon of Croton (C. 540–500BC) which was then applied to health by Hippocrates suggests that humours are the vital bodily fluids, such as blood, yellow bile, phlegm and “black bile” and an extreme excess or deficiency of any of the humours bodily fluid in a person can be a sign of illness. Hippocrates and then Galen suggested that a moderate imbalance in the mixture of these fluids produces temperament (behavioural) type. One of the treatises attributed to Hippocrates, On the Nature of Man, describes the theory as follows:

The Human body contains blood, phlegm, yellow bile and black bile. These are the things that make up its constitution and cause its pains and health. Health is primarily that state in which these constituent substances are in the correct proportion to each other, both in strength and quantity, and are well mixed. Pain occurs when one of the substances presents either a deficiency or an excess, or is separated in the body and not mixed with others.

The modern day practice of medicine has in some way moved from the convictions of Hippocrates “the father of Western medicine” in the sense that the physicians now focuses more on particular diagnosis and specialised treatments and Hippocrates focused more on treating the disease as one not as many. This is also explained explicitly by Alfredo Darrington Bowman, better known as Dr. Sebi, a Honduran herbalist. On his website, he writes that “His African approach to disease relies on natural botanical remedies to cleanse and detoxify the body, bringing it back to a more alkaline state from the acidity that causes disease and pathology. Natural vegetable cell food compounds are an important part of that change. By removing accumulated toxins, and replacing depleted minerals, cell foods can rejuvenate damaged cell tissue, especially those eroded by acidity.

The primary organs affected are the skin, liver, gall bladder, lymph glands, kidneys and the colon. With inclusive nutritional programs designed, not around the pathology, but around the whole person and their diet and health, cell foods are an important part of the nutritional environment of every recovering, responsible and healthy individual.”

Dr. Sebi’s approach focus more on the individual’s diet than any other causes of sickness as explained by physicians and his approach finds its foundation on the word of God (The Holy Bible) which states that “29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.” Genesis 1:29 King James Version (KJV). This brings us back to the truth that the creator had created us not to eat man made/hybrid foods since he knew how he had made us.

Dr. Sebi says that the heart moves by electricity and without this electricity we wouldn’t be able to move. So the food we eat should be electrical, which is nutrition. Electric food is food that is wholly natural, totally indigenous to the earth. So the diseases we suffer from today are due to the consumption of material that are alien to the body.
