Dr. Sebi Speaks of Dembali: Crossing Over from Dis-Ease to Ease in Matters of Health, Race, Family and Culture is a work of non-fiction focused on health, social and cultural themes, and was penned by author Beverly Oliver. Dr. Sebi, as he was known, was a practitioner of alkaline herbal medicines, and in this biographical work his efforts in this field are explained, along with his self-coined conceptual approach called Dembali. After curing many clients of terrible diseases, the author recounts Dr. Sebi’s strong principles on harmonious race and cultural relations as part of the overall holistic approach to healing oneself and moving from dis-ease to ease.

Author Beverly Oliver presents a wonderful tribute to the life and work of a man who strongly believed in his principles and surely had some fascinating information to offer the world. The organization of the work takes us through seven narrative-style chapters, and it is often easy to fall into the story as if we are reading an emotive memoir. But the practical advice and sage guidance of Dr. Sebi is highlighted well and given good space in the arrangement of the work so that we always remember the lessons taught and come away from the reading championing those ideas ourselves. Overall, I would highly recommend Dr. Sebi Speaks of Dembali: Crossing Over from Dis-Ease to Ease in Matters of Health, Race, Family and Culture to any reader interested in holistic approaches, herbal medicine and inspirational writing in this field. An accomplished work of non-fiction.
