Good evening everyone, and welcome back to my blog Humble Soul Life Of A Juicer. We are now in Part 3 of our mini-series on the Alkaline Diet. I want to take the time to thank everyone who follows, likes, subscribes, buys donates, etc. As always, please remember I am not a doctor yet! Everything stated here is based on my family and my opinion, training, and research. So please consult with your doctor before making any changes to your diet. Also, I have tried this diet, and it was beautiful. I am back eating any and everything. I love food, but for me, I am at a point where it’s to change and will be going back to this diet. Jumping straight into things, we will start by talking about mucus. When you hear mucus, I know the first thing you think of blowing the nose, right? Or even like a chest cold? But few know the dangers mucus can cause. The definition of mucus is a protective substance that’s excreted from multiple areas of the body, such as the mouth, sinuses, throat, lungs, stomach, and intestines. Sugar-containing proteins (or glycoproteins) called mucins give mucus its gelatinous consistency. Discarded infection-fighting white blood cells plus other debris picked up in the nasal passageways often catch a ride in the phlegm too. Did you know you also have mucus in your eyes, ears, GI tract, and reproductive and urinary organs? It’s crazy to think about the human body and everything it holds. Now all those places contain mucus.
What does that mean for diseases? From diabetes, leukemia, breast cancer, or even herpes, they come from the same thing can you guess what? Before moving on, I want to send love and light to the great Dr. Sebi as we jump into his teachings and why mucus is so harmful. I know you are thinking who in the heck is that and why should I care. He is also known as Alfredo Bowman, who isn’t a medical doctor but was a herbalist and had many teachings curing things such as aids and leukemia. With only thousands of claims of people who have been treated. These and similar assertions resulted in a 1993 lawsuit that ended with the court ordering Dr. Sebi’s organization to stop making these claims. Dr. Sebi died in 2016 in police custody. Below will be a few videos that have helped me on my journey.
Dr. Sebi believed that mucus and acidity caused disease. The diet aims to achieve an alkaline state in the body to prevent or eradicate the disease. He held that eating certain foods and avoiding others could detoxify the body, achieving an alkaline state that could reduce the risk and effects of the disease. The Mucous membrane of our biological structure has been compromised when we get such conditions. The membrane is broken, and wherever that broke has taken place, it takes its place. For example, when the nasal passage is blocked, we blame a cold or sinusitis, in the bronchial tubes bronchitis, the lungs pneumonia. The Dr.Sebi diet is as followed.
- Only eat alkaline foods.

You should eat, fruits and vegetables including avocado, kale, bell peppers, and wild arugula, apples, bananas, dates, and Seville oranges

Some benefits claimed are weight loss, appetite control, altering the microbiome, and reduces the risk of disease. With every diet, it’s essential to make sure you get all your nutrients.
