GET HEALTHY with Dr. Sebi Nutritional Guide – Mucus Reducing Alkaline Diet

The herbalist Dr Sebi inspired this mucus reducing alkaline diet, which is made up of non-hybrid alkalizing plant foods. These foods control the acid level in the body, which protects against harmful mucus buildup that compromises organs and leads to the development of disease. Sebi31

Dr. Sebi methodology involved using a natural alkaline plant food diet and herbs to alkalize the body to return the alkaline body back to a state of homeostasis.

The diet consisted of only natural alkaline vegetables, fruits, nuts, alkaline grains, and legumes, which would alkalize and remove mucus from the body.

Along with the diet he also used natural alkaline herbs to clean the body’s cells on the cellular, and intra-cellular level. The alkaline diet is based on the premise that disease can only exist in an acidic environment.  The body works to maintain a slightly alkaline 7.4 pH environment in the blood.

View what happens when the blood becomes acidic. The blood is the point of equilibrium for homeostasis and when the body becomes too acidic the body will borrow alkaline minerals and compounds from bones and fluids through the body to put into the blood to keep its pH stable. This jeopardize the health of different areas of the body and lead to the development of disease.
