Mucusless Diet: F.A.Q.

An Introduction to the Mucusless Diet Healing System

by Professor Spira

 

Disclaimer: My views about, and experiences with the human body may challenge everything that you have been taught about the body. It is necessary for you to free your mind of the many erroneous medical and naturopathic concepts before we get started. Don’t just take my word for it. I encourage you to ask questions and research this topic for yourself. The only way that you can truly “know” something is to do it.

General Introductory Principles

 

Lesson One

Every disease, no matter what name it is known by medical science, is

 

CONSTIPATION

  • Constipation is a clogging up of the entire pipe system of the human body with mucus and pus.
  • Special accumulation points are the tongue, the stomach, and particularly the entire digestive tract. The latter is the real and deeper cause of bowel constipation.
  • The average person has as much as ten to twenty pounds of uneliminated feces in their digestive tract. This waste is continually poisoning the bloodstream and the entire body system. Think of it!
  • Every sick person has a mucus-clogged system derived from undigested, uneliminated, unnatural food substances that are accumulated since childhood.
  • The Mucusless Diet Healing System has proven to be the most successful “compensation-action” and so-called “cure” against every type of disease known to mankind.
    • By its systematic application thousands of patients that are declared to be incurable could be saved.

 

BOTH HOW YOU EAT AND WHAT YOU EAT ARE IMPORTANT!

  • The Mucusless Diet consists of all kinds of raw and cooked fruits, starchless vegetables, and cooked or raw, mostly green-leaf vegetables.
  • The Mucusless Diet Healing System is a combination of individually advised long and short-term fasts, menus that progressively change to non-Mucus-Forming Foods, and daily colon irrigation.
    • This diet alone can heal every case of disease without fasting, although such a cure would require a longer time.

 

It is a systematic way of eating to transition your self safely away from disease producing foods.

 

F.A.Q.

What are Mucus-Forming Foods?

Dead animal products

Dairy Products

Grains, Starches, and Fats

What do you eat?

I am systematically transitioning my diet to fruits and greenleaf vegetables. Ultimately these foods will eliminate the need for themselves.

 

But how do you get protein and vitamins?

I do not believe in the protein theory. The body does not need anything to be a body. You cannot feed an atom protein, or anything else, and we are made up of a bunch of atoms. The body does not get its energy from food or the nutrients found in food. If you break your addiction to so-called “protein (mucus) foods” you will feel much better and see at once how wrong this theory is.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why do I need colon irrigation?

The human organism is the filthiest being on the planet. No other animal has broken the physiological laws of nature as terribly as humans have. Because of our condition it is necessary to irrigate our colon everyday to rectify the physiological laws that we and our ancestors have been breaking for thousands of years.

=Physiological Freedom

 

 

 

What do you mean by “physiological law?”

I often say that the ‘world was flat until we realized that it was round.’ A law is an undeniable truth that is invariable under any given circumstance. Most of us agree upon a law called gravity. We agree that if an individual jumps off of the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, with no technological apparatus, that he or she will fall and die because of the tremendous impact with the ground due to gravity. This is an example of a “rediscovered” law that we all are conscious of.

In the late 1800’s Professor Arnold Ehret rediscovered the most important, fundamental, and misunderstood universal law regarding human physiology: that our bodies are “air-gas engines!” He realized that no matter what we eat we are all running solely on air. He then established the equation Vitality = Power – Obstruction (V=P-O) to demonstrate this law. Like breaking the law of gravity, if you break this physiological law you will undoubtedly suffer, sooner or later. It does not matter whether you disagree with the law, believe in the law, consciously ignore the law, or just not know what it is. You will not be granted a verdict of “not guilty” due to a technicality. It is your duty and privilege to investigate and know the law.

You have the right to stop eating. If you give up this right it will be held against you in accordance with the physiological laws of universe.

 

What is meant by V=P-O?

If you were to put sand into the gas chamber of your car how far do you think your car would go? If your car engine is caked with gunk because you have not had the oil changed in years how well does the car work? Chances are it would work much better if gasoline was used instead of sand and the gunk (obstruction) was eliminated with a good oil change. If the basic laws are ignored the obstruction in the engine becomes too great and it cannot function and ultimately stops (dies).

The engine of your body acts in the same way. Your body is an air-gas engine that was never designed to intake food, much less mucus-forming foods. Over time these mucus forming foods create so much obstruction that our bodies can no longer receive efficient amounts of oxygen into our bloodstream. This obstruction is then given some kind of name such as: heart-attack, stroke, high cholesterol, etc. To describe this basic principle, Arnold Ehret created the equation Vitality=Power-Obstruction, i.e. V=P-O. As soon as Obstruction (O) becomes greater than the body’s Power (P), deriving from the breath, the body comes to a standstill.

 

 

Then what is this eating thing for if we run on air?

The first thing that we must do is humble ourselves, look ourselves in the mirror and admit that we are pathologically sick beings addicted to the ultimate gateway drug: pus and mucus. We must eliminate the erroneous medical dogmas that we have been forced fed since childhood.

I know that I am addicted to the most insidious drug that the human body could ever consume: pus and mucus. What can I do about my addiction? I can read the Mucusless Diet Healing System and start to transition away from mucus forming foods. I can begin to administer lemon enemas to myself everyday and learn how to lie down and fast (refrain from eating solid food) when it is necessary.

The only reason that we eat is to control our bodily elimination.

 

 

What about pharmaceutical medications?

The human body is not designed to use the chemicals in medicine whatsoever. Medication is a chemical poison that shocks your body, forcing it to stop its current elimination and deal with the new poison. Therefore you suppress your current symptoms and go on about your day like everything is normal. Ignoring our eliminations through suppression will not make the problem go away. The only way to eliminate what we call sickness is to eliminate the mucus from our bodies and diets.

 

 

 

I thought that jello was wholesome! Isn’t that what they serve sick patients in the hospital?

Jello is made out of ground up bones, hooves and other parts of animals. Needless to say it is pure filth and not fit for human consumption, much less hospital patients who desperately need some lemon enemas, fruits, vegetables, and prescribed fasts.

 

 

 

How long should I fast!

You must naturally learn how to fast over a long period of time. As you gain experience, you will learn the length that is right for you. The cleaner your body gets the easier it will be to fast. Whenever you go through a mucus elimination (get sick) you should immediately stop eating mucus, FAST! If you would like to avoid adding to your current latent sicknesses then it is advised that the art of fasting be learned without delay.

 

 

 

Just Fruit? Vegetables?

Mucusless fruits and vegetables are the only foods fit for human consumption. The purpose of eating these foods is to aid the body in its elimination of pus and mucus. When not fasting, fruits and vegetables should be eaten everyday. Fruit act as an aggressive dissolver of mucus , while vegetables function as a mucus broom in the intestines to help the body eliminate the dissolved waste.

 

 

 

What about air and food pollution?

It’s interesting when people ask me about surviving as a Breathairean in our polluted environment. I look at them and say that we are both standing here surviving exclusively on air right now. Just because I practice the mucusless diet does not mean that my body’s operations are any different from the Burper King Devotee. The difference is that my operations will not likely be stopped by thick pus in a few years. Food, no matter what it is or how it was grown, is only doing one of two things; its either adding mucus to the body or eliminating it. I acknowledge that our foods are messed up, but I believe that the concern needs to stay on the food’s ability to aid the body’s elimination of mucus. Of course, if you are accustomed to organic fruits and vegetables, and can afford it, then I don’t see any problem with it. However, I would immediately stop taking any supplements and put that money into big boxes of lemons and distilled water for enemas.

 

 

 

 

Why doesn’t anybody else know about this? Why hasn’t this information been on Oprah or 60 Minutes?

Congratulations! You have been given a very rare opportunity indeed. You are one of the first people to be exposed to the most important rediscovery of the 20th century! We are living in a very degenerate age that is best described as the latter part of the middle-ages. A time when death and the eating of death is deemed to be totally normal! We are all apart of a world-wide death culture that is dedicated to chaos, ignorance, and self-degeneration.

As Gil Scott-Heron said, “THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE TELEVISED!” Since Ehret’s rediscovery in the late 1800’s, pioneering individuals in the American Midwest have continued his work and are the living examples of its truth. Thousands of people from Italy and elsewhere have formed mucusless communities. These people are all vessels of real human knowledge. As Brother Air says “if you do not know how your body operates you can be told anything.”

Since Ehret’s rediscovery, the media controllers have done everything in their power to suppress the work of Arnold Ehret and other naturopaths. Everyday we are bombarded with erroneous health information and are bamboozled into believing that we do not control 100% of our health through what we put into our bodies. The implications and acceptance of Ehret’s work would ultimately lead to the abolition of the medical, meat, and dairy industries, among others. Eventually the current system of capitalism would be rendered useless and the Earth’s people would return back to the mythical “Garden of Eden,” one of the universal paradise myths shared by many divergent cultures.

 

 

 

 

But I love to eat! I don’t think that I could ever stop eating. It tastes too good. I love food with a passion. You are wrong, you have to be, right? Shouldn’t a diet be well balanced? Eating is a part of my culture and heritage and I refuse be preached to!?

I am in no way, shape, or form telling you to just stop eating. I’m not preaching about what is good and bad for you, or what you should believe in. I am a humble musician, professor, philosopher, and mucusless diet practitioner with the obligation to share these newly rediscovered laws with you. I am challenging you with profound information that has the power to transform your life. Only you can transform this information into knowledge, and evolve it into wisdom. My words mean nothing unless you decide to be proactive and investigate these principles for yourself. No matter what you decide to do, you have been chosen to receive this information NOW. And right NOW, armed with the knowledge of these physiological laws, you have a wonderful opportunity to question and investigate the limitless potential of the human body.

    WOW. ! X this is the comprehensive picture I have been searching for. ..have been familiar with rawfoodism and fruitarianism and 80/10/10ism and breatharianism for a fair while – so many competing theories – I should have come back to basics – back to the original material from which they all sprung. Brings everything together into one framework. Love it. and the lack of extremism and dogma. THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU!

  2. mucus says:

    Very good info you have her at %URL%. thanks for sharing :D

  3. Ben Jorgensen says:

    i feel profoundly lucky and blessed to be aware of this and to be open minded to it!! but i also have many questions that i know may take a good part of my life to answer. i have a very hard time believing that we dont need very much food. i understand and agree with eating only fruit, herbs, nuts and seeds, but i have never even considered that one can live on very small amounts of these. that has always been labled “anarexia” in my mind, 80 10 10 style.

    but i would also like to ask you, can you point me to some links where i can actually reference real people today that are following a mucusless diet, and what exactly their methods are? i now know what foods are mucusless and the likes, but it is still hard for me to understand how to do it properly. and i would like to get some actually legitimate info/proof for mucoid plaque. those pictures are pretty convencing, but how can i be sure that this was done without smoke and mirrors of “colon clensing” mediums such as bentinite clay, or some other substance that would generate such stringy, rubbery masses. im just needing some help understanding all this, im not trying to disprove or negatively criticize you or anything here, as i dont have the wisdom to do so. just know that i am comming from a true state of peaceful curiosity and truth seeking! not one of resistance. thank you very much in advance for any information you can give me!! :) much love to you and all in this special group!

  4. Ben Jorgensen says:

    oh, i forgot one thing. i dont understand at all what Ehret meant by the lungs pumping the blood and the heart being the valve. can you state your oppinion on this? what am i not seeing correctly?

    • Spira says:

      Greetings Ben! For some contemporary insights on the heart being the valve, and lungs the pump, check out this link: http://www.arnoldehret.us/demo/ehret-library/overview/more-research-tools/heart-pump/. Also, the only way that I personally know that the mucoid plaque is real is because I had great quantities of it come out of my body throughout my practice of the diet. Some of what came out actually looked worse than what is in some of the pictures above. As I learned to combine lemon enemas with the transition diet, I had remarkable quantities of waste leave my body. I wish I had pictures of some of that mess, or better yet, some way to convey how terrible it smelled. At any rate, Ehret’s paradigm is quite different than the 80/10/10 and other raw-food/vegan concepts that are built upon standard Western dietetic and medical concepts, such as caloric intake, vitamin theory, and protein myth.

  5. Good explanation. Thanks a lot.

  6. Sunny Brainerd says:

    Well stated in simple easy terms! Thank you!! I first ran across Ehret’s books in 1988, seven years after I had started transitioning over to raw foods in 1981. Ehret’s books made complete sense to me. I started practicing the mucusless system, very slowly and did some fasting, colonics and enemas. Got to the point where I was satisfied with only one apple a day. After a few years I fell away from it for awhile due to family issues and then started yo yoing between Ehret’s teachings, the raw foods diet and a mucus-filled veg diet, for many years. Finally after checking out & experimenting with several different versions of vegetarian & raw food diets, including more recently the 80/10/10 diet, I began to get very confused and very frustrated with all the different teachings. Started feeling like I did not want to eat at all! I starting thinking that maybe I should just go back to the mucusless diet, do it and then teach it to others, but was still not sure, so night before last I said a very sincere, intense, SOS prayer for help! The very next morning I quite by “accident” was led to this site and to your videos where I enjoyed listening to your readings from Ehret’s book and decided right there and then this was the way for me to go. I was led here through my prayer request! I had gone full circle and ended up right back to the mucusless diet system and became convinced more than ever that this was the way for me to go! As soon as I had this realization, a big weight was lifted off my shoulders and I begin to feel lighter instantly and the confusion and frustration left me immediately. This is it now for life! A million thank yous for all your great posts on this subject! Love your music too by the way!!

  7. Sunny Brainerd says:

    I would like to add that I have read 100′s of books on the subject of health and nutrition and nothing compares to Ehret’s message. To me the mucusless diet means freedom! When I was doing the 80/10/10 diet I felt like such a slave with that lifestyle, having to count calories and worrying about getting in enough each day; not to mention all the time & energy I spent seeking out all the food that way of life requires. With the mucusless plan I can eat as little as I want and fast when I want as well. This is so liberating! The 80/10/10 teachings does not understand that less calories is not starving (if done correctly)but actually helps to extend ones life span and not shorten it with eating too much food. I understand the principles that we live on air and that eating is just an acquired habit.

  8. Daniel says:

    Dear Friend, Thank you for writing and compiling a good introduction into Ehret’s efficacious and profound; well being fostering principles.

    A few comments:

    I personally advice and follow a raw, low fat, plant based diet.
    However, Hess (California, USA) Avocados, if ripe, are almost devoid of starch; and I do not find such Avocados to be mucus forming! Following A. Ehret’s conceptions; one would not consider them mucus forming, since their texture is not glutenous; neither in a cooked nor raw state.

    Amounts Per 100g: Hass, Avo

    Total Carbohydrate8.6g3
    Dietary Fiber6.8g
    Starch0.1g
    Sugars0.3g
    Sucrose60.0mg
    Glucose80.0mg
    Fructose80.0mg
    Lactose0.0mg
    Maltose0.0mg
    Galactose80.0mg

    Furthermore, fully spectacled, naturally ripened, Bananas are practically completely starch free and none glutinous (I think you’ve mentioned bananas in some other relation, as well).

    With regards to nuts and seeds wherein Ehret’s writings does he state that nuts and seeds are mucus forming? I recall his statement relating the inefficaciousness of too much fat in general ((M.D.System:) i.e: recipe with coconut) for optimal health and well being, yet as far as I remember he did not state that such foods were mucus forming, per say. Personally, from my experience, I’m quite sure some nuts and seeds are not mucus forming, whilst some may well be; particularly if not soaked properly.

    We may discuss other matters in the future concerning Ehret’s wonderful work; what a pity that he died when he was really starting to formulate, ground breaking, herbal remedies…

    Kind regards.

    • Spira says:

      Greetings Daniel! Thank you for your reply. There does tend to be confusion about the mucus-forming status of avocados and nuts. They are both mucus-forming—as they are fats. Ehret makes clear that all ‘fats’ create mucus/obstruction and are not to be eaten by humans. Mucus-free ‘raw foodism’ from Ehret’s perspective would include mucusless fruits and greenleaf vegetables, and exclude all fats. Although there does seem to be a contradiction in the MDHS regarding nuts, they are fats and mucus-forming. I talk more about why this contradiction exists elsewhere, but, briefly, the author remarks “all fruits, raw or cooked; also nuts and green-leaf vegetables are mucus-free,’ but later says “all nuts are too rich in protein and fat and should be eaten only in winter, and then only sparingly” because they “are too rich in protein and will produce, if continually used, mucus and uric acid (Trans. Diet pt. II).” Although not part of an ideal mucus-free diet, nuts may be used during the transition if combined properly with dried fruits (raisins, etc.). There are several explanations for this apparent discrepancy. The two main ones are that, in comparison with meat, nuts are virtually mucus-free. The other thing to keep in mind is that Fred Hirsch took editorial liberties during the assemblage of the Mucusless Diet book as we know it. Many of these changes, or contributions, can be easily identified. The greatest example might be in the section “Vegetarian Recipes,” whereby the editor, presumably Hirsch, explains why he added the mucus-lean menus, although Ehret resisted requests to do so.

      Ehret did not discuss avocados because they had yet to become an abundantly available food source. Avocados did not really begin to gain in popularity until the 1950s when they became a more commercial crop. Many ‘raw foodists’ adopted the item, along with nuts, as their primary ‘raw’ mucus/fat-forming foods. I find the advice given for fats during the discussions about nuts to be applicable to avocados—although from my experience they are much more addictive than nuts and primarily used with vegetables. There is an in-depth discussion about this topic on the Facebook Ehret support group. If you are not a member, feel free to join and check it out. Just ask the moderator to direct you to it. Also, I will post an article on this blog in the near future that addresses deceptive mucus-formers like avocados in greater detail. Peace, Love, and Breath!

      P.S. Nothing wrong with very ripe bananas. The key is to avoid the unripened green bananas, which is perhaps what you are referencing.

      • Daniel says:

        Thank you for your reply :)

        I do not use facebook.

        I understand Ehret’s principles as being testable and related to the glutinous texture; inherent structure of foods and their residues; Ehret delves into great detail on this regard, as you very well know :) (MDHS).

        Nuts and avocados may certainly reduce the efficacy of the detoxification process, nevertheless, concluding on that basis, that none glutinous, strachless, avocados (or certain nuts and seeds) are mucus forming may be premature or incorrect; particularly viewed in relation to Ehret’s research and principles; as detailed in MDHS.

        If such dietary items are consumed immoderately they may however, naturally, cause immunological (mucus forming) reactions…

        I hope we may stay in touch; and conjointly further develop a superior program of detoxification and regeneration (although I do not personally use facebook :) )

        Much love.

    Great website!

    Can this system cure HIV/AIDS?

    Thx!

    • Spira says:

      We don’t deal with the concept of “diseases” or “curing disease,” as this is for people who believe in allopathic medicine. Our realm is human illness and health. I will say that people who have suffered from the symptoms of such illnesses have overcome them using the system.

  10. Didmitri Karalis says:

    Hello all to all Ehretist
    I wonder if any one knows the fate of Teresa Michel, as she reached the final state of a complete internaly cleanness, free of all pathological obstaractions. ASfterwords she maired with 2 children and wrote nothing more beside “my road to health and happiness”.
    it will be of great interest to hear from some one, how she lived and ended her life there after.
    with much apreciation
    Dimitri karalis

    • Spira says:

      Unfortunately, I have not been able to find any current information about Teresa Mitchell during my years of researching Ehret and his followers.

  13. Amigo says:

    Dear Prof Spira!

    are you 100% sure that starches are mucus forming? I mean all asians eat rice on a daily basis! People in europe always ate potatoes and carrots. Asians would not have dark black hair IF rice would have so much mucus. Remember, they also eat some meat, bot not dairy products. So maybe it is dairy which is many times worse than starch?

    • Spira says:

      Yes, I’m 100% sure. Fatty and starchy foods both are mucus/acid-forming. Yet, there are some types of starches that are better to eat during the transition period than others. For instances, baked acorn squash or baked sweet potatoes are slightly starchy when cooked properly, but will eliminate much better than something like rice. Peace, Love, and Breath!

  14. Chardonnay says:

    Hi Spira,

    So happy to have found this page.
    I was wondering if you could perhaps shed some light on fasting in the case where a person has mercury fillings. I know Ehret mentions that special precaution should be taken if there are traces of mercury in the body. I have been on 2 or 3 veg & fruit juice fasts, and am slowly transitioning to the mucusless lifestyle, so just want to find out if there are any precautions that you know of.

    Love & light
    Chardonnay

    • Spira says:

      Sorry for the delayed response. They key is to maintain a slow transition with a lot of green leaf vegetables. Juiced vegetables along with salads can help to purify the blood less aggressively than fruit. If you feel negative symptoms that greens don’t handle, then you can move to “mucuslean” meals. The key is just to monitor your progress and know how to use food to slow down or speed up your elimination when necessary. Peace, Love, and Breath!

  15. Joackim says:

    Great information. Kindly tell me the average lifespan of people on the mucus less diet.
    Thanks
