List of Mucusless Foods – Acid-Binding, Non-Mucus-forming, Mucus-Free Foods

The overeating of pus, mucus, and acid-forming foods is a problem of epidemic proportions around the world! But many people do not realize how harmful mucus-forming foods are to their health and well-being. Further, few people know what foods are truly mucusless (mucus-free) and how vital they are in healing human illness and maintaining life. In the following article we will explore what foods are mucus-free.
The word “mucusless,” or mucus-free, refers to foods that are not pus or mucus-forming inside the human body. Such foods digest without leaving behind a thick, viscous, slimy substance called mucus in the gastrointestinal tract. These foods include all kinds of fat-free, and starchless, fruits and vegetables. The term was coined in the early 1900s by dietitian and healer Prof. Arnold Ehret in his book the Mucusless Diet Healing System. 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 as a Healing System is a combination of individually advised long and short-term fasts, menus that progressively change to non-mucus-forming raw foods, and other therapies such as sun-bathing, exercise, colon irrigation, etc. Ehret observes that the accumulation of uneliminated waste materials by eating pus, mucus, and acid-forming foods, is the foundation of human illness.

healing systemThe full list of acid-binding and acid-forming foods will be found in the soon to be released Arnold Ehret’s Mucusless Diet Healing System: Annotated, Revised, and Edited by Prof. Spira. This is the first critical edition of the Mucusless Diet that is designed for a 21st century reader. The following list is certainly not exhaustive, but these are some of the most common mucusless (mucus-free) foods. This list includes a section for vegetables that are all, or relatively, starchless. Although they may contain a little starch, some of them have been identified to be great vegetables to use during the ‘transition diet,’ and good for this list. In the Mucusless Diet Ehret explains how cooking some starchy vegetables “improves” their cleansing abilities, as much of the starch is eliminated.

Understand that the Mucusless Diet as a healing system is not just about what foods we should eat, but how to systematically eat less harmful foods to transition away from the worst ones. Although this list does consist of mucusless foods, the Mucusless Diet practitioner does eat some mucus-forming foods that are not on this list.
