“[D]isease can only exist in an environment that is acid; thus it is inconsistent to utilize inorganic substances when treating disease because they are of an acid base. Only consistent use of natural botanical remedies will effectively cleanse and detoxify a diseased body, reversing it to its intended alkaline state.”
Excerpt taken from Dr. Sebi Cell Food (website).
The Alkaline Diet, as I introduced on season 2 of Seeking Sister Wife, is not a new “fad” diet, but one that has been well-researched and adopted by many people around the world looking to reverse disease and/or lead healthy lives. Simply put, consuming certain foods that digest as alkaline in the body, alkalizes the blood, raising one’s overall pH and starving disease.
The Alkaline “Diet” can be a detox or it can be a lifestyle. Some eat this way to heal, while others eat this way to thrive. For me, it started off as a way to heal my son from severe eczema that showed up when he was one and a half (1.5) years old. I refused to believe this was something he would have to deal with for the rest of his life, so I took to researching ways to heal from eczema. I tried many things— from creams to different diets— most with mixed results. An allergy screen and a few Facebook groups later, I learned that eczema could be alleviated through diet, by healing the gut with certain foods. The gut is where all disease starts.
To heal my son, my entire family went on a new journey to wellness as we eliminated all of the harmful, processed foods, as well as the allergens that were attacking my sons body. Nío is now 5 years old and has been eczema eczema free for almost 3 years! We still eat a mostly alkaline diet as a lifestyle, but now that we understand our bodies, we know how to manage our health in ways that work for us!
The Food List and Meal Plan below are a just a few of the many things that make eating an Alkaline Diet delicious and healing. The inspiration for the 21 Day Detox came from the late, great Dr. Sebi, but is completely personalized for my family and our taste, including removing the ancient grains that contained gluten, and other items that we decided to go without. It’s very important in order to see results for the detox, one must be strict with following the list for the full 21 days. For disease management, a doctor should be consulted, as well as a strict adherence to Dr. Sebi’s food list.
