Dr. Sebi’s daughter Kellie Bowman discusses his upcoming documentary, the coronavirus scare and gives tips on living a healthy lifestyle.
Famed healer Dr. Sebi had an approach to health using food and natural herbs as medicine for the body that was ahead of its time.
Since his death, we’ve been inundated with documentaries and studies on how a plant-based diet is a safer and healthier approach to food consumption because of the way meat is processed today.
Dr. Sebi‘s daughter Kellie Bowman and his grandson Izeah Bowman recently visited rolling out studios to discuss the long-awaited documentary about his life and their commitment to follow in his footsteps and help others attain a healthy lifestyle.
Conspiracy theorists believe Dr. Sebi died under suspicious circumstances. Do you?
Kellie: No. Let’s clear that up. … If anyone wanted to kill him, they would’ve done it when he was in the middle of a controversy in the ’80s. That’s not true.
Some people are starting to panic about the coronavirus, which until recently was contained in China. What can we do to prepare for a possible outbreak in the U.S.?
Kellie: The best thing you can do is change your diet and stay aware of what’s going on. Our immune system is stronger when we are eating to live and not for enjoyment. We should be eating to put nutrients in our bodies to fuel us and keep our bodies strong.
Beyond the coronavirus, processed food is killing our society. … There is no nutritional value in the food most of us are eating.
Nipsey Hussle was involved with a documentary about Dr. Sebi that people are excited about. Where are you in the process of bringing that to life?
Izeah: We are thankful that Nick Cannon stepped in and is producing the documentary. He’s great and we trust him to keep the integrity the piece deserves. We’re currently still in production but it will be out soon.
We know it’s important to drink more water, but which is better — alkaline water or regular bottled water?
Izeah: You should be drinking spring water unless you have some other health issues. Alkaline water has become a trend. It should be an absolute for individuals suffering from gallstones, kidney stones and cancer.
In addition to drinking more water, what are three things people can do, starting today, if they want to move toward a healthier lifestyle?
Kellie: The first thing we all need to do is to understand the rules and principles of life. Your diet will determine the health of your mind and body. Your body is self-healing if it has the right nutrients.
The second thing is to forgive yourself for what you haven’t known before now, and then make changes. You should start in your pantry. We tell people to partner with their pantries. You can tell a lot about a person by what is in their pantry.
A bonus tip that’s so important is to walk with positivity. A positive mind is the beginning of real change.
