Dr Sebi’s Usha Village 2nd Annual Mind, Body & Soul Retreat Is The Ultimate Reset!

This summer I was grateful to return to the jungle to experience the 2nd Annual Mind, Body & Soul Retreat at Usha Village in Honduras. Usha Village was built from scratch by the infamous herbalist Dr Sebi, who preached the foundation of all health is dictated by what substances you ingest daily. It has been proven that with Sebi’s recipe of herbs, an alkaline diet and discipline, anyone can make a disease-free life their reality. This year I knew more of what to expect and was eager to complete my twice a day regimen of bitters, herbs, sauna, thermal water and of course, good eatin’. This trip we incorporated meditation, massages, bachata, and get an intense lesson on each mineral and its purpose. I came back not just with the smooth skin of a dolphin, but on a mission to keep my overall vessel clean so I can continue to be the healing vessel for others. Although sometimes life seems grim, the opportunities to educate and elevate are always available to you. Email Usha if you’re interested in learning more about this life changing experience. https://www.instagram.com/drsebisusha/ Watch at https://www.fadedtruth.com/episodes
