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! 

What are you going to do with it?

Healthy Food for Humans: What Really Belongs in the Human Body?

  I thought there was so much useful information in this video that will help you get started or continue on your raw vegan fruitarian diet. I am including here, in this post a summery of everything I learned watching this video, plus a lot of my own thoughts and knowledge. All you have to do is be open to this information and then implement it for best results. 

The first thing we need to remember here is, out of all the thousands of wild animal species we are the only ones who have been consuming an unnatural diet. Animals in the wild don't over eat, and they don't eat anything not natural to their species and available in their natural environments.

All natural animals eat according to their own species and all members of that species eat the same basic diet. Likewise we humans all have the same digestive tract, the same organs, and the same basic needs. Why do we think that we are all so different? And, need to eat different foods than our species would allow?

We are the only species on the planet that flavors, and spices our foods before we eat it. We are also the only species on the planet that feels we need to eat cooked foods. Now there is a lot of reasons for why we feel this way, but I am not getting into that here. Bottom line is we must eat what is designed by nature and or God for us to eat. The fact that we as a human beings are so sick is because we have become accustomed to consuming an unnatural diet. A diet not designed for us! 

So, What should you eat as a human being? 

As you have learned in the video we humans must eat a human diet. There are some things we can observe that tells us what foods our species is designed to eat. In the video Loren mentions that animals and humans only want to eat what is naturally appealing to them. He talks about how the vibrant colors of fruit makes us simply want to eat it. This is why fruit is so colorful. When rip on the tree fruit calls to us and speaks to the primitive natural side of us. Fruit is easy for a naturally fit human to obtain. And it's sweetness is something we all crave. Fruit is also easily digested for the specific digestive systems human have.

In school we are told that humans are the combo of the herbivore/carnivore species, and the word omnivore was then applied to humans. But, we simple do not have physical bodies and digestive tracts which tell us this. Think of the true herbivores you know of, such as a cow, goat, horse, rabbit, etc... Do we have the same digestive systems as they do? NO we don't. Do we graze with our heads to the ground all day long? NO we don't. Do we see grass and think this is food for me? NO we do not!

Think about the true carnivores you know of, such as a cats like lions, and tigers. Also look at the wolf, snakes and polar bears. Do we have the same digestive systems as these animals? NO. Do we find killing our food with our teeth, ripping out their arteries and drinking their blood appealing? NO, and if we do we are labeled as deranged. Wouldn't we rather pick some fruit off of a tree and eat our fill then do that? Yes we would! 

Now let's look at the animals that closely resemble us and in fact have the same digestive systems as we do. I am talking about primates. Science has told us that are closest animal cousins are in fact primates. More specifically Bonobos and chimpanzee. In fact we share 96% of our DNA with chimps and as much as 99% of the DNA that a bonobo has.

We are wrongly taught that primates are herbivores but this is just not true. Primates are actually fruit eaters. We call this frugivore, and for some reason this is a fact left out of science class. I believe that is because the powers that be do not want us to know what our true diet is. The Medical, Pharmaceutical and Animal agriculture Industries don't want us to know that the key to health and vitality is as simple as eating a fruit diet. Image how much money they would lose if we all began eating a diet specifically designed for our bodies, a diet that is designed by God to keep us as vital as Adam and Eve in the garden. Imagine how much money these capital I industries would lose if we got healthy?

Ok, back to the bonobos...

The bonobo's diet is largely fruitarian. Foraging in small groups, bonobos feast primarily on fruit, but when necessary they also eat leaves, flowers, bark, stems, roots, insect larvae, worms, crustaceans, honey, eggs, and soil. Occasionally they hunt small mammals like flying squirrels. Bonobos eat a diet natural to them from their natural environments.

Now, we are not bonobos that is why we don't eat everything that they do, although we certainly could handle it as long as our primary food was fruit. The problem is instead of eating lots of fruit and implementing a fruit based diet we as humans typically consume a junk food and animal based diet. If you take a bonobo and feed him the standard American diet he will become sick with the standard American diseases that afflicts most Americans. In fact animals in captivity fed an unnatural diet will and do in fact develop cancer, diabetes, and heart disease just like we do.

If you are a Christian you should read Gen 1:29, which outlines God's original diet for man. The diet he intended for us. The diet that was intended to sustain the optimal health and vitality Adam and Eve first enjoyed. I think you get the point. Feel free to do your own research. This makes sense to me and that is my focus. 

Junk food! 

Junk foods are foods that contain fat, complex sugars, salts, spices, natural and artificial flavoring. Also preservatives, especially chemical preservatives. For the record I do not believe we should be eating anything that has chemical preservatives, and artificial anything in it. But, even a raw vegan who consume whole plant based foods can fall into a junk food frenzy of high nut fat, highly flavored and seasoned foods. Yes there is such thing as raw vegan fruitarain junk food, and that is something I personally try to avoid. Sure those foods are great for once in awhile when you just want your food to entertain you, but if you are going for disease elimination or prevention it is best to stay off of any food that is complicated. That is also Loren's message. 

We are addicted to these complicated foods. That is why we "feel fine" or "feel better" when we eat them. This doesn't mean however that what we just ate is good for us. Food addiction is no different than an addiction to any other substance that only satisfies the craving it creates, but damages the body in the process.  In other words; When we consume a substance we are only satisfying the need, that the substance has created. It only cures the problems that it has created, ie; the call to consume it again. This can manifest as stomach grumbling, or discomfort which most people think is hunger. A headache, or just an insatiable desire to consume again. This in no way means that the substance is good for us! 

Since beginning this journey over a year ago I have learned just how addicted I am to foods. I never considered myself addicted to anything, or having an addicted personality, but going through this and eliminating everything, but fruit and simple salads, I now know that I am addicted real bad, to foods. It gets better with time, but I realize we must never feed the addiction, or it sets us back. The hardest thing about this life is getting over these addictions. But, once you have gotten off of these addicted foods, the body can then begin to cleanse and heal. 

Complicated foods are stimulants! 

Like Loren said in this video salts, flavorings like herbs, complex sugars and even proteins are stimulants. Stimulants are not good for us! Stimulants are addicting and as already mentioned only fix the problem it creates. Eating more of a food that only stimulates your body will not lead to health and will in fact lead to body breakdown from overburdening the Adrenal glans and other body systems.

A raw vegan fruitarian diet if not properly is a diet free of these stimulating foods and or only in very low quantities such as protein. We get our protein from fruits and simple salads but when we over eat we tax the system. You heard him say that when we eat more protein than we need we age and die faster. This just one reason why we should avoid concentrated complicated foods such as meat, dairy, eggs, and processed foods. Fruits, and vegetables contain everything we need in the proper balance for a human being and it is virtually impossible to over eat when you only consume fresh ripe fruits and veggies in their whole natural state.

The only way to over eat on a raw vegan fruitarian diet is to eat blended foods, dehydrated foods, and those gourmet style raw meals with all of the nuts, seeds, salts, and spices. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you will see that I often only eat whole fruit, but getting off of my daily smoothie is something that I am working on myself. I also don't do the gourmet raw meals, but I will create a blended raw dressing for my evening salads. I have been eating a little more nuts and seasoned dressings for my salads this winter for building up my energy stores, getting ready for the summer. But, my diet is always and has been for the last year and a half whole fresh raw fruit! I will do a smoothie and fresh raw fruit all day. And salads in the evening several days per week if not a little more if I have the ingredients. 

Anyway I hope you watched the video and enjoyed it as much as I did. I also hope you enjoyed my comments and summery here. Feel free to leave a friendly comment. If you have any questions and or would like support while you begin changing your diet to a raw vegan fruitarian diet please contact me or leave a comment via my Facebook page. 

Today is the first day of the rest of your life! What are you going to do with it?

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope this helps you in some way!

Raw Vegan Fruitarain | Understanding Cravings

   If you are struggling to understand your cravings this is a great video to watch. During my twelve months so far, as a fruitarian I have to say that I hadn't realized just how addicted I was to foods. I never considered myself a food addict, but I quickly learned just how much I am. The good news is the more you resist temptations the easier it gets I promise. 

It is important to listen to our bodies, but not all cravings are telling you what you NEED to be eating, but is actually just an addiction. Learn how to tell the two apart for best results. Obviously your body is not telling you to eat pizza or anything else not good for you. If you are craving fat for example it isn't your body telling you to eat high fat dairy products or pizza, but avocados or possibly even some seeds or nuts. Or if you always crave sweets it isn't your body telling you to eat candy and sweet baked goods, but fresh, raw, and ripe sweet fruits. 

 Also many cravings that we are experiencing aren't coming from a true need, but the parasites that are within us fighting to stay alive! This is where getting your body cleaned out by staying away from bad foods, and sticking to the raw fruits will help. As you cleanse the system, depriving the parasites of their food, the parasites start to freak out and fight for their lives. This parasite die off will actually cause you cravings, and make you want to eat sugar, bread, yeast, fats, etc... Don't give in! Get the body clean, and the cravings also will disappear as the parasites also disappear from your gut. 

Here are some craving rules...

  • If you crave sweets, eat lots of fruit. Fill up on fruit at every meal.
  • If you crave salt eat more raw veggies such as celery, carrots, green leafy vegetables. Adding vegetable juice or a big salad at the end of the day will help you with those cravings for salt. You can even top it with some celery chopped up real fine. 
  • If you crave sweets after you eat a savory meal, such as a salad, then you didn't eat enough fruits throughout the day. (note it is best to eat your sweet fruits all day, and then end your day with a savory meal such as a salad)
  • Loren Lockman suggests you do fruits, berries and melons all day. And for your evening meal do a big salad of spinach, avocado, tomatoes, and possible cucumber. If you need to add salt I would do celery, or a pinch of pink salt if you really need it.

How Cooked Food affects the Body

   Learn about how cooked foods actually effect your body. I suggest limiting your exposure to cooked foods, focus on raw fresh fruits, berries, melons, raw salads of dark greens and some veggies every day for optimal health. This video is helpful for understanding what it is cooked foods are really doing to you. The only time you should be eating cooked vegetables is if you are trying to slow down a detox, and or need to work your way up to a raw diet because of the weaknesses you have developed in your body. Other than that Go RAW!  

Every time we eat cooked foods our body says, "this is a problem."  

The immune system responds with digestive leukocytosis. 

White blood cell count spikes as if the body was injured.
The only other time the body experiences leukocytosis is when there is an injury to the body. 

Cooked food produces toxins that you do not want in your body!
