“Lesson 19” Mucusless Diet #1
Fasting Video Series Part 3

In this above video, I continue my 2017 discussion on Arnold Ehret’s methods for fasting. The text I read can be found in both the Mucusless Diet Healing System and Rational Fasting. Click HERE to get all of Ehret’s and Spira’s books on Amazon:

Text Discussed from Lesson 19 on “Fasting” and “Rational Fasting” Part 1

As long as the waste is in the circulation, you feel miserable during a fast; as soon as it is through the kidneys, you feel fine. Two or 3 days later and the same process repeats itself. It must now be clear to you why conditions change so often during a fast; it must now be clear to you why it is possible for you to feel unusually better and stronger on the 20th fast day than on the 5th, for instance.

But this entire cleansing work, through continued contracting of the tissues (becoming lean) must be done by and with the original old blood composition of the patient; and consequently a long fast, especially a too-long fast, may become in fact a crime if the sick organism is too greatly clogged up by waste. Fasters who died from too long a fast did not die from lack of food, but actually suffocated in and with their own waste. I made this statement years ago. More clearly expressed: the immediate cause of death is not a poverty of the blood in vital substances, but from too much obstruction. “O” (obstruction) becomes as great as or even greater than “P” (air pressure) and the body mechanism is at its “death point.”
I gave all of my fasters lemonade with a trace of honey or brown sugar for loosening and thinning the mucus in the circulation. Lemon juice and fruit acids of all kinds neutralize the stickiness of mucus and pus (acid paste cannot be used for sticking purposes).

If a patient has ever taken drugs over their entire life period—which are stored up in the body like the waste from food—their condition might easily become serious or even dangerous when these poisons enter the circulation, when they take their first fast. Palpitation of the heart, headaches, nervousness may set in, and especially insomnia. I saw patients eliminate drugs they had taken as long as 40 years before. Symptoms such as described above are blamed on the “fast” by everybody, and especially doctors.

Ehret’s Lemonade fasting methods, as well as other drinks Ehret recommends, are discussed further in Lesson 20 of the Mucusless Diet Healing System.


Throughout the next couple months, I’ll be going through Ehret’s fasting lessons. Be sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel here so that you do not miss any of them:
