Alkaline Plant Food. We need to change the Western diet, which is being globalized, from being centered on meat, dairy, processed foods, and hybridized and genetically modified plant foods, to a diet that is centered on the consumption of alkaline plant foods. We must look to the plant foods that are indigenous to Africa or other areas of the world that share the same or similar environmental conditions of Africa, like Central and South America, the Caribbean, and India.

Alkaline Plant Food

These foods grow under the same conditions that supported and developed the African genome and supported and developed the genome of the plants that have chemical affinities with the African genome, which is the foundation of the human genome in all people.

Healing starts with removing foods that introduce toxins and pathogens and that acidify the body, cause mucus buildup, cause chronic inflammation, and lead to the development of chronic disease. The World Health Organization (WHO) released a report classifying the consumption of processed meat as “carcinogenic to humans” and the consumption of red meat as “probably carcinogenic to humans.”

Countless scientific studies support the assertion that animal protein and animal fat increase the risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic diseases. To support the healing process and homeostasis of all the organs and functions in the body, we need to return to a diet centered on the consumption of nonhybrid whole plant foods. This is the foundation for health and healing. To speed healing or to reverse complex diseases, we should also return to using natural alkaline nonhybrid plant herbs.

The herbalist Dr. Sebi was pivotal in reestablishing the idea that alkaline nonhybrid plant foods had chemical affinities with the body and supported healing. His African Bio Mineral Balance methodology of healing is based on the premise that food that raises the acidity level in the body and that causes the overproduction of mucus in the body is the root of disease. Basically, acidic and toxin-laden foods continuously attack the body, cause a prolonged inflammatory reaction, and lead to chronic inflammation.

Acute inflammation is a natural and health-supporting process used to fight infection and to repair physical damage done to the body. When acute inflammation is not turned off, the process then attacks healthy cells in various areas of the body and leads to the development of various forms of disease.

This compromises the protective mucous membrane that lines the organs and promotes excess mucus production, which in turn compromises the health of organs. So we start with removing these foods from the diet, which include meat, dairy, processed foods, and unnatural acidic hybrid plant foods. A good place to start is with this list of foods based on the alkaline foods recommended.
