Dr. Sebi developed his African Bio-Mineral Balance herbal compounds and nutritional guide to support the healthy expression of the African genome.

The African genome is the foundation of the genetic structure of all homo-sapiens. During the evolution of the homo-sapien, the African migrated out of Africa. Changes in environment and eating habits mutated the gene and introduced various illnesses into the genetic structure.[1]

The heavy reliance on meat centered diets was the main culprit for this change. Presently, meat-centered diets support the proliferation of disease.[2]

Diets centered on the consumption natural alkaline plant foods supported the healthy expression of the African genome, because they had chemical affinity with it.

Chemical affinity means the body naturally recognized the food, so it’s digestion didn’t produce harmful byproducts that compromised the body.

Sebi developed a method of healing that focused on providing the body with foods and herbs that had chemical affinity with the body. This promoted an environment in the body that was inhospitable to disease.

His approach to healing was different than other “alternate medicine” or “holistic” approaches to healing like the Ayurvedic, homeopathy, Ying Yang (Chinese medicine), and the macrobiotic.

The African Bio-mineral Balance consisted of herbs and plant foods that naturally alkalized the body, to best support the healthy expression of the African genome in all people. 

African Bio Balance Perspective

The African Bio-mineral Balance first surfaced in 1988 in the Supreme Court of New York. The African bio-mineral balance is a therapeutic approach that addresses disease on two levels. Dr. Sebi refers to his method as either the African Bio-mineral balance or the African Bio Balance. 

It first cleanses the body of acidity, on the intracellular level, that compromises the mucous membrane of organs and their health. The breakdown of the protective mucous membrane allows disease to compromise organs and to proliferate throughout the body.

The African Bio-mineral Balance also revitalizes cells buy supplying minerals lost through the consumption of acidic foods. Acidic foods include meat, dairy, processed, GMO, and hybridized foods.

The African Bio-mineral Balance is the balance of 102 minerals that properly supports electrical activity and health in the body. The body uses the minerals to supply electricity to run all of its functions.

Natural or native plants have an alkaline base, and where designed by nature to supply these minerals and other compounds to support the healthy expression of the African genome.

Meat, dairy, processed, and hybridized foods have an acidic base and contain compounds that acidify the body and threaten the alkalinity of the blood.

The Blood’s Role in the African Bio-mineral Balance

The body must maintain a 7.4 PH in the blood  to avoid metabolic acidosis. Metabolic acidosis occurs when there is a sudden drop in pH that can result in shock or death.

You naturally support this alkaline condition in the blood by consuming natural alkaline foods. When you consume acidic foods acidic compounds go into the bloodstream and threaten to drop its pH.

The body was designed with natural buffering systems to prevent metabolic acidosis. These systems put alkaline compounds into the blood to counteract acidic compounds.

When you constantly consume acidic foods you overwhelm the body’s natural defense against acidic foods. The body will resort to stripping alkaline material, like calcium from bones and from fluids throughout the body to put into the blood.

The health of the blood is the body’s primary concern because the blood supplies oxygen and nutrients to the entire body.

When the pH of the blood drops, hydrogen takes over the blood. This interferes with proper oxygenation and reduces hemoglobin in red blood cells. This also interferes with the blood’s ability to deliver nutrients to cells throughout the body. 

The body must support the pH of the blood before anything else. The chronic consumption of acidic foods forces the body to strip alkaline material from other areas of the body, which results in chronic metabolic acidosis.

Chronic metabolic acidosis doesn’t kill you right away but does support the development of chronic diseases like cancer, lupus, osteoporosis, and heart, liver, lung, kidney, and intestinal disease. 

The African Bio-mineral Balance supports health and vitality by supplying the body with alkaline compounds that maintain the alkalinity of the blood. It also supplies compounds that clean cells down to the intracellular level, and revitalize cells.

Other Healing Modalities

Other healing modalities do not completely address the healthy expression of the African genome that is in all people. 


The East Indian Ayurvedic system of healing advocates for the consumption of a wide variety of plant foods and plant herbs. This does provide some healing, because of its plant-based nature. The system also uses hybridized and acidic foods which undermine the full and healthy expression of the genome.


The German physician Dr. Samuel Hahnemann started his experiments in homeopathy in 1790 and developed the homeopathic practice in 1796.

Homeopathy is based on the principle that “like cures like,”  or the  “Law of Similars,” and uses toxic substances to trigger the desired reaction. By 1829, he become famous throughout Europe because he was successful in reducing the mortality rates of many diseases. 

He accomplished this by boosting the immune reactions for the targeted symptoms, which did help in combating diseases. This approach is used to address disease, but not to stop the onset of disease.

It is a reactionary healing modality used to react to disease, instead a modality to stop the onset of disease.

Ying Yang – Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) primarily uses animal and plant substances to treat disease instead of synthetic pharmaceutical substances. TCM is effective in treating disease, but not as effective in preventing the onset disease.

It addresses the symptoms of the disease but not the underlying root of the disease because many of the substances acidify the body and introduce compounds that can weaken other areas of the body.


Dr. Sagen Ishizuka developed the macrobiotic diet out of resistance to the influence of European culture and Western medicine. He recommended a diet centered on the consumption of whole, unrefined foods, and little meat and dairy. 

The diet centered on the consumption of brown rice and sea vegetables, and he was able to cure many people simply by having them change their diet. He became known as the “Vegetable Doctor.”

Though the macrobiotic diet was a healthier choice than consuming a Western diet, it did have its limitations. The limited consumption of meat and dairy, along with the heavy consumption of rice starches compromised the digestive process and produces byproducts that acidified the body.

African Bio Mineral Balance

The African Bio-mineral Balance helps prevent the onset of disease. It does this by alkalizing the body so the body won’t need to strip alkaline material from bones and tissues throughout the body to keep the blood alkaline.

This maintains the strength and integrity of the protective mucous membrane of organs which protect them from disease.

The consumption of alkaline plant foods maintain the health of the blood and allow for the proper oxygenation of red blood cells and the delivery of nutrients to maintain organ and cell health. 

As the blood goes, so does the body.
