Alfredo Bowman Biography
(Honduran Self-Proclaimed Herbalist Healer)
Birthday: November 26, 1933 (Sagittarius)
Born In: Honduras
Alfredo Darrington Bowman was a herbalist and a self-proclaimed healer from Honduras who garnered prominence for having a number of Hollywood celebrities as his clients, including Lisa Lopes, Steven Seagal, John Travolta, Eddie Murphy, and Michael Jackson. He was better known as Dr. Sebi, despite the fact that he did not have a medical degree. A native of Ilanga, Bowman received his early lessons on herbal healing from his grandmother. At the age of 20, he relocated to the United States. According to some sources, he was suffering from asthma, diabetes, and impotence at the time, and conventional medicine did not help him. He travelled to Mexico to seek help from a herbalist, and after gaining positive results from it, he came back to US and set up a herbal healing practice in New York. Not long after, he established another centre in Honduras. Much of Bowman’s claims have received criticisms from actual doctors, attorneys, and consumer protection agencies, with many of them calling him a quack. After battling several legal issues throughout his life, Bowman died in 2016 while he was in the custody of the Honduran authorities.
