There’s a couple key distinctions. Let’s take a look at food…
An alkaline/electric plant-based lifestyle is one that is based on the methodology and protocols of Dr. Sebi. This includes the consumption of natural whole plant foods the create the least amount of mucus in the body, including vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds. As the name implies, it is a lifestyle with natural plant foods as the focus rather than a processed food or animal-based diet. Processed and animal-based more accurately describe the diet of westernized societies and this type of food consumption creates a very acidic pH and has grave consequences overtime.
Dr. Sebi established a new standard in how we approach and select foods. Most often an alkaline/electric plant-based lifestyle is referring to one that is 100% plants and as we have learned in Dr. Sebi’s lectures he even advocated the use of the black bee honey in both medicinal and nutritional consumption. An alkaline/electric plant based lifestyle also focuses on the use of electric herbs to aid the body in healing and restoring itself from an acidic pH to one that is alkaline.
A vegan diet, on the other hand, is one that eliminates the consumption of any other sentient being or their by-products. This means no animal flesh (beef, poultry or fish), no dairy products, no eggs and no honey I love how Dick Gregory, put it: “I don’t eay anything that can fart, doodoo, pee, or screw”
Depending who you ask, honey may or may not be an acceptable ingredient for vegans. A vegetarian diet comes with much more variety. Vegetarians generally don’t eat animal flesh, but are ok with dairy products and/or eggs. Ultimately, they limit their animal consumption based on what they are comfortable with. For instance some people call themselves pesco-vegetarians, meaning they include fish in their vegetarian diet.
A key piece to note in reference to vegans is when you look under the covers you begin to realize it is not as healthy as many may believe. The foods we consume have to be more than ethically and morally correct. The foods we consume must resonate with our molecular structure, it must create an alkaline environment that will provide us with an optimal level of living. Many vegan are not necessarily eating whole, plant foods. In most cases a vegan consumes a very acidic diet that includes many unnatural foods. potatoes and other starchy foods, many processed snack foods and unnatural beverages can all be vegan. The food industry has caught on to the growing acceptance of a vegan diet, and thus vegan junk food and packaged meals has become easily accessible and increasingly palatable. These animal-free foods are still loaded with sugars, chemicals, fatty and harmful oils and un-natural salt and thousands of other non animal additives with harmful effects on the body. These man-made ingredients are not just appealing, but are often powerfully addictive. You can see that a vegan diet does not necessarily equate with a healthy diet.
In all honesty, an alkaline/electric whole food, plant-based lifestyle is not without room for further growth and expansion. Unfortunately the creator of this movement has passed but his legacy continues through millions of people that know the importance of selecting foods based on our genetic structure as well as for the benefit of achieving alkalinity.
It is important for me to say, this lifestyle is not perfect but I will echo Dr. Sebi by saying the foods on the nutritional guide are the best of the worst foods we have. There are foods included on the nutritional guide that are naturally occurring hybrids like kale, with gluten such as the ancient grains spelt, kamut and rye and with small amounts of starch such as the garbanzo beans/chickpeas but this is by far healthier than a vegan diet consisting of highly processed foods neither resonating with our DNA or creating an alkaline environment for our bodies to thrive in.
The good thing about the word vegan in many cases represents eating a diet without meat and with lots of fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes and seeds. This is helpful in transitioning a person from vegan to alkaline/electric plant based, inspired by Dr. Sebi. It is also helpful to use the word vegan when you are in most non vegan eateries because of what most non vegans believe the word to mean “frutis & veggies”. We are still making strides to get the word Alkaline/ Electric into our homes so that more and more people will know the importance of eating to restore the body to its optimal level of functioning. Continue to support us as we continue to provide you and others with more information on the alkaline/electric lifestyle.
