Natural Health Mucusless Diet Healing

   In this post I want to put it all together for you. Sometimes I feel like this blog isn't focused and or I am not focused. Let me explain. On this blog you will see information from Dr. Robert Morse, Loren Lockman, Dr. Herbert Shelton, Arnold Ehret, and likewise Prof. Spira. All of these men teach what is seemingly a different approach to a natural diet. So sometimes I listen to one, then the other, and the other. And find myself feeling unfocused. But the more I learn and implement the more I see the similarities and choose to focus on that. 

So what I want to do here is put it all tougher for you and outline the basics of what all these men teach. That way you and myself can have a bit of a guide through it all. I will also include a list of mucus free foods both cooked and uncooked. I am all about simplicity so I am going to keep it as simple as possible. I will provide links to my other posts about these other teachers so that I can keep this post as short as possible. 

Arnold Ehret and Prof. Spira

I have learned a lot from Arnold Ehret's book The Mucusless Diet Healing System first published in 1920. But also from a man of our own century, Prof. Spira who is the leading authority on Ehret's system. I highly recommend his videos and website. 

What I love about The Mucusless Diet Healing System is the simplicity of it. And the variety of mucus free foods there is to choose from. You are not bound to just raw fruit. And you can eat from a wide range of cooked fruits, as well as plants. By fruits I mean all sweet, sour and savory fruits. A fruit is simple a plant based food that has seeds surrounded by the flesh, or fruit. I will go over these in the Mucusfree food list. 

Arnold Ehret also has a pretty good transition diet. I think that is pretty important. If you're not used to eating a whole food, grain free, mucus free, raw or mostly raw vegan diet than a transition program is a very important step. A good transition program can save you years of cheat eating, or what I call "I don't give a fuck" moments or the "I have been doing good" rewarding your self with disease forming food moments. 

A mucus free diet can consist of cooked and raw seasonal foods. The system teaches that there is a good way and a bad way of cooking foods. Fasting is also highly recommended in times when you need to be resting and not eating. Fasting can be an excellent tool in the recovery of illness. Ehret himself was cured of a so called incurable disease. It was fasting and a fruit based mucus free diet that helped him for it and was the cause of developing his system. 

Ehret's system is really about the science and art of health. No fads just simplicity, common sense and getting out of the bodies way. Transitioning to a healthy plant based mucus free diet along with mastery over the art of fasting, over time. 

Arnold Ehret was really one of the most influential people of the natural health movement. Like Morse and Shelton they were in a lot of way ahead of their time but right on time. So all their teachings really goes hand in hand with Ehrets work. More on Arnold Ehret and The Mucusless Diet Healing System! 

Need I not forget to again mention the invaluable source of Mucusless Diet Healing System knowledge, that we get from Prof. Spira. Like I said he is the leading authority of today on Ehret's work so I recommend that you learn from him too. Especially if you really want to get into The Mucusless Diet Healing System.

Dr. Herbert Shelton

Moving on to the next century from Arnold Ehret is Dr. Herbert Shelton. After Ehret, Dr. Herbert Shelton was one of the best natural health authorities of the 20th century. He operated many fasting clinics in which he helped thousands of people get well through what he called Natural Hygiene. We could say he is the Father of the Natural Hygiene movement. Like The Mucusless Diet Healing System, Natural Hygiene is the science of health. 

The principles of Natural Hygiene are very similar to what Ehret taught. Certainly Shelton was a student of Ehret's work. It's about letting the body do it's thing. The one thing that it's always trying to do, HEAL ITSELF, if only we didn't get in the way. The body is designed to heal, designed for life! And symptoms of disease are only the bodies way of communicating the dis-ease in the body. 

Both of these men promoted fasting and not just a quick fast but extended water fasts when needed along with lots rest. They also both promoted a natural whole food plant based, mucus free diet. Both Shelton and Ehret taught about the art of health and fasting. Loren Lockman follows in both these men's foot steps and operates a successful fasting center in Costa Rica called, Tanglewood. If you are looking for a place like this to go away and heal, this is a place you should look into. 

Other practices of Natural Hygiene include eating a raw or mostly raw, whole foods plant based diet, sun bathing, drinking pure water, pure air, staying calm and get plenty of rest. Life, God or Nature whatever you please has already provided everything we need to live a healthy well adjusted lives with no disease. It's human beings choosing to live outside of that which creates the dis-order that we experience and call disease. 



Dr. Robert Morse

Like Prof. Spira Robert Morse is a man from our own century and full of natural health knowledge. I am certain that he too is a student of Shelton and Ehret's work. What Morse teaches is the same basic principles of health as what all of these men teach. And that is eating a clean mucus free diet, along with fasting when the need be. Robert Morse is a big promoter of the fruit diet to help the body heal. He understands that fasting is not a good long term plan but a fruit diet for the purpose of healing can definitely be. 

Why fruit? Dr. Morse teaches us to eat a fruit diet. More specifically fruits, berries and melons! In order to help the body heal from the inside out. This is because fruit is the easiest to digest, energetic, pure water rich, and nutritious. The perfect food! Morse teaches that a fruit diet for a time will help the body heal by speeding up the detoxification process and allow the body to cleanse effectively. 

A lot like what Loren Lockman teaches us to do as well. We eat a fruit diet or a fruit based diet along with greens to give the body everything it needs and nothing that it does not! Fasting is used in the short term to give the body a rest and a jump start into a clean fruit based diet. 

Loren Lockman has had people at his Tanglewood retreat fast as much as 50 days! But he has stated that the typical individual will fast for about 20 days. Dr. Morse knows that most people can't go to a retreat to fast in the safety of an expert so a fruit diet is the safest and most logical step to take for most people. This is exactly what I recommend too.

Fasting certainly should be included in your day, every day but most of us can't afford or take the time to do it for 20 days. I do recommend however that you start small with one day, every week and build up to more. In the mean time eat a clean plant based diet. If you have cancer you may want to go more over to the vegetable side of things. There is some evidence that sugar, even contained in fruit may make it more difficult to heal from cancer. But Dr. Robert Morse will teach us differently. 

Morse is a big promoter in a fruit diet to heal from cancer and claims to have seen it in many of his patients. Certainly both scenarios can be possible depending on the situation. I will leave that up to the individual and their own judgment. See Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida. 

Loren Lockman

Like I said before Loren Lockman has a very successful fasting retreat in Costa Rica called Tanglewood. People go there to do long fasts in order to heal from a chronic disease. The principles are simple and a lot like what all of the other men can teach us. We learn from Loren how to get out of the bodies way through fasting. Removing stress, and get rest in the pristine environments of Costa Rica. 

Like Natural Hygiene fresh air, sunshine, clean water, and fresh raw food like fruit and greens is all the body needs to heal. I will also add a positive mental out look on life. Loren teaches us that nothing outside the body can heal us. Our body will heal itself if given the proper environment. This principle is a common theme in the teaches of Loren Lockman as well as, Shelton, Morse, Ehret and Spira alike! 

Also fruit is humans perfect and most natural food! The human diet is supplemented with the baby leaves of soft tender greens. Which are easy to digest and offer us the nutrition our body needs to heal itself. Loren has taught me that health is simple daily fasting, fruit diet along with simple salads is the perfect diet scenario for humans. 

I know when I stick to this myself I feel my best. It is what keeps me going! According to Loren a simple salad is spinach, lettuce, tomato, avocado and lemon juice. If you have not had a salad like this you are missing out on the perfect simplicity. I love my salads like this! 

You can learn more from Loren Lockman on his YouTube channel. I love the simplicity of what he teaches and this common sense approach to health. Anyone who can take the time and money to go fast with him in Costa Rica is indeed blessed. He also does online fasting consultations too. 

Bringing it all together! 

The message that all of these men bring is that of simplicity, common sense, basic scientific principles about how the body works, and good old fashion implementation. Don't knock it till you try it! Certainly these men would not agree with each other on every little thing. This article is not to point out the differences but the similarities. 

The message is clear and can be customized to fit your own lifestyle and diet goals. The message is; eat a clean mucus free diet, of fruit, greens, and vegetables. Some seeds and some nuts may be added in moderation and eaten with your greens/veggies. Organic is always best if you can get it. I love homegrown best myself when it is available. 

It is really the diet of man, human kind before sin and death entered into the world, Genesis 1:29. The original plant diet, that is not only cleansing but nutritious too! I also love the message of fasting daily. That is what I do. Read more about that here in What am I doing to Help my Body Heal?

I am still working on a 24 hour fast once per week. For now I am working on perfecting the art of daily fasting about 15-20 hours daily. I heard Prof. Spira say the other day that following The Mucusless Diet Healing System and fasting is really an art. I like that and it is so true. Like art we are all unique individuals, in a situation some what unique to us. 

We need to find what speaks to us and fit that into our lifestyle. Always learning to techniques and improving along the way. This is why I love to learn and implement what makes sense to me in my life without compromising my health. I certainly want to fit into the standards that I have learned from these men. I believe they are right on the money with their message and I have experienced the truth in it but putting it to practice in my life. 

I hope this post has helped you make sense out of what these men can teach us. If you don't know who these people are I suggest you look them up and see what it is you can learn from them. Apply this message to your life and see what can happen. 

Check out my posts for Herbert Shelton. There is an audio there that you have got to listen to and it is one that I love. I have also written a lot here about what I have learned from Dr. Robert Morse. I have also posted quite a bit about Loren Lockman. All of these posts have videos in them for your convenience. 

To recap what we have learned here...

Having a positive mental attitude!

Eat high water content, fiber rich, mucus eliminating plants! 

Getting out of the bodies way to make room for health! 

Letting the body do what it's designed to do, heal!  

Eating living foods that promote life and vitality in your body. 

Not death, decay, stress and trauma! 

Eating in a way that can help your body heal as well as the planet! 

Eating health rather than disease! 

It's your choice! 


Today is the first day of the rest of your life!
