Did You Know Dr. Sebi Was Sued By NY Attorney General for His Claims To Cure All Diseases And Won

by | Aug 3, 2015 | Modern History | 8 comments

More than likely, you have heard of Dr. Sebi by now. Thanks to the internet, his name and reputation has made the social media rounds, chat rooms and discussion boards to become widely known.

However, you may not be aware that his claims of being able to heal any and every disease, medical problem or weight issue known to man were upheld in a court of law. In an age when skeptics are on every corner, this man has proved he knows his stuff and his knowledge might be what our future needs.

Dr. Sebi was born Alfredo Bowman in the village of Ilanga, Honduras on November 26th, 1933. Since this time, he has picked up the ancient art of using herbs to heal the human body of known diseases.

With the Bible as his base and God’s word as his guide, Dr. Sebi believes and knows there is a combination of herbs and natural practices that can heal the human condition. He also wonders why modern medicine and people insist on using chemicals when they don’t work and aren’t necessary.

In 1988, Dr. Sebi was running ads in his local newspaper about his ability to heal any disease known to man. The New York Attorney general at the time took him to court and sued him over these claims he thought to be false.

However, Dr. Sebi won the case by producing over 70 cured patients with a wide variety of aliments to testify that his methods not only work but cured them completely.

EDIT: A reader wrote to us to say that the claims of Dr. Sebi were not held up in court and for transparency we have added this note to the article.

    Dr. Sebi was far from spiritual. Stop lying about him using “the Bible as his base.” He even stated that he did not wish to be spiritual because of the food he observed so called spiritual people eating.

      Dr. Sebi is recorded in a classroom setting saying Anything that “GOD” has made is good for you. Anything that comes from nature is good for you. He wasnt “far” from spirituality but possibly ashamed/put off by the way people failed to follow the teaching of the Bible. I think you took that out of context and spreading what you wanted to hear.

    Where are the court papers stating he beat the law suit?

      That’s right. The American government would NEVER admit to their promoted, money-making method being wrong. Not everything about out medical system is wrong, but as a health student, myself, I can attest to seeing many wrongs done to our population in the name of corporate profit.

    • Antoine L Dunklin

      The law suit awarded the attorney general $900 dollars?

    And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.
    Genesis 1:29
    He used quotes as such in court because they could not deny the law of nature!

    Yada is also great teacher as well!
