Reluctance Before the Uptick in Natural Healthcare


We are witnessing an explosion, a cropping up and out, a renaissance so to speak, of natural healthcare and natural food business owners. Adio Akil is apart of that uptick and Dr. Sebi, one of her mentors, is a major reason why. In the first of four "remembrance" videos this month, November, Dr. Sebi's birth month, Adio tells us that even though Dr. Sebi helped her and other women remove cysts from their breasts without surgery, his brand of healing was initially a hard sell.


Adio is now based in Washington, D.C., where she has come full circle with her health and wellness business. She booked events and Dr. Sebi's lectures at the Community Warehouse in the 1980s. Today, she runs Quintessence Health and Wellness in northwest D.C. Try her delicious, soul-stirring lentil soup when you can. In upcoming remembrance videos Adio attests to Dr. Sebi's passion for natural healing.
