Yes. Dr. Sebi's food list is the same as Dr. Sebi's Nutritional Guide.
Dr. Sebi's food list was updated regularly as new information was discovered. He removed certain items from the list he found were no longer beneficial for health, or if the ingredients used to make them were not in accordance with his dietary recommendations.
No, not all of the foods listed on Dr. Sebi's list are natural or wild foods. As Dr. Sebi stated our foods have been tampered with for many years - many of the foods that are currently available at the supermarket are hybrid or genetically modified organism (GMO). Dr. Sebi stated also that his list contains the least detrimental of what is available.
Alkaline is a term for a substance with a pH level that is higher than 7, while acid is a term for a substance with a pH level that is lower than 7. The pH level of a substance is often used to measure the acidity or alkalinity of a substance.
Unnatural foods and herbs are usually acidic (lower on the pH scale). Some foods and herbs are considered acid because they have a lower pH level than 7, which can cause an imbalance in the body and can lead to health issues. Eating an alkaline diet is important for maintaining a balanced pH level and overall health.
Dr Sebi was more concerned as to whether the food or herb was natural or not - not necessarily whether they were cooked or raw. He pointed out that natural foods still provide energy whether raw or cooked. However, in a later interview in Jamaica, Dr. Sebi did make comments to the effect that cooking food might not be a necessity.
A hybrid food is a food that has been genetically modified or crossbred to produce a new variety of plant or animal. Hybrid foods are not natural and can contain unhealthy ingredients that can disrupt the body's natural processes. Dr. Sebi recommends avoiding hybrid foods.
GMO foods, or genetically modified organisms, are foods that have been altered in a laboratory setting in order to create a new variety of plant or animal. These foods are not natural, and can contain unhealthy ingredients that can disrupt the body's natural processes. Dr. Sebi recommends avoiding GMO foods.
Dr. Sebi recommends avoiding all processed and canned foods, as they contain preservatives, additives and other unhealthy ingredients that can disrupt the body's natural processes.
Dr. Sebi excludes garlic from his food list as it is hybrid and acidic. He pointed out that garlic will eat away your membrane and doesn't allow wounds to heal as it contains the oxide of allyl.
In short, NO. However, he pointed out that many of the bees in America are hybrid - and that if someone wants to have honey it would have to be from a natural bee, for example, the small black bee found in Jamaica.
Dr. Sebi recommended drinking natural alkaline spring water. He also recommended thermal water. These waters naturally have higher pH levels. Alkaline water helps to balance the body's pH, which can help to improve overall health.
It is important to re-iterate that alkalinity must be achieved naturally. Today there are waters on the market, we are told are alkaline but it is not achieved naturally. It is the naturally alkaline minerals that are found in spring or thermal water that make them effective and healing. This cannot be achieved through a machine.
