A Key Ingredient for Healing


From Bob Marley to Thich Nhat Hanh and Letta Mbulu to Sonia Choquette, the consensus is clear—love heals. So it’s not so surprising that our bodies are endowed with the ability to produce a “love” hormone called oxytocin, one of four feel-good hormones according to Johns Hopkins University and Harvard Health Publishing. Harvard says, “Oxytocin can help us bond with loved ones and can be released through touch, music, and exercise.” No doubt that hugging is therapeutic.


About love, Dr. Sebi once said, “My ancestors afforded me the one thing that the world needs most today, love and compassion.”


This month, Dr. Sebi’s birth month, in the second of four remembrance videos, Adio Akil remembers Dr. Sebi as a healer who loved, and loved deeply.



Dr. Sebi speaks of love, including romantic love, in the following publications:
