Your Living Shall Not Be in Vain

If I can help somebody, as I travel along

If I can help somebody, with a word or song

If I can help somebody from doing wrong

No, my living shall not be in vain

—lyrics by Alma B. Androzzo

If you place Ms. Androzzo’s lyrics in a natural healing context, then you could surely apply them to Dr. Sebi, a man driven to educate people, particularly Black people, about the nature of food and health.  He committed over 30 years of his life traveling down that road, a road his protégé Adio Akil believed he would journey on for many years to come. But his death in August 2016 upended that notion, leaving Adio compelled to continue in the same vein as her mentor.

Adio Akil

Adio is the owner and operator of the holistic health company Quintessence Health & Wellness in northwest Washington, D.C. She met and trained under Dr. Sebi at the Garden Holistic Institute in St. Croix, Virgin Islands.

Dr. Sebi is the creator of the African Bio Mineral Balance, a therapeutic system with a twofold approach: 1) remove toxins (mucus, plaque, cysts) from the body and 2) rebuild and restore iron and energy to the body’s immune system and cells.

Alfredo Bowman (Dr. Sebi) November 26, 1933 – August 6, 2016

We appreciate your work Dr. Sebi. Your living has not been in vain.

Creative Artist, that's me. How do I define that? Writer/Editor, Voiceover Artist, Audio/Video Producer (a skill I'm constantly improving), Content Strategist (purposing public affairs content, images, and audio that, for the most part, concern natural health and food). I'm a die-hard fan of the natural healer Dr. Sebi. My interests include music, movies, theater, documentaries, hikes (especially along the Pacific Ocean), cooking, and reading biographies and the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh. JBDavid Communications pays homage to the work ethic and love of life of David Jesse Brown Oliver, my father.
