The mind instinctively governs all organic action of the physical body. Mucus-forming and puss-forming foods are unnatural and harmful for humans to consume. The author experimented with fasting, where he found strength and vitality, rather than starvation. Disease is a response from the body to discard infectious wastes. All disease is sourced in the colon, constantly attempting to clean itself out. Food consumption is for the purpose of cleansing, rather than energizing one’s body. Naturopathy ...more

Recommends it for: anyone who would likes natural food
I thought this was an excellent book. The author was a dietician and is also known for his books "Rational Fasting" and "Thus speaketh the Stomach". Even though he gives a lot of information about how fasting and mucusless diet are best, he continually emphasizes that there is no one way to fast, and cites examples of people who have fasted incorrectly and paid for it with their lives.

But what is the most useful about this book is that Ahret can tell you the reason why his method of fasting wo

People who gave his books a low rating, have really no idea what they are talking about! Most people are not ready for his teachings, they are scared of changing their food habits and their life. This is more than just a diet, this is a lifestyle change, this might include your friends and families even becoming more spiritual.
Yes his books are written almost a hundred years ago but they are still accurate. I surged and read many books over 10 years and found his books to be the best in healing

I agree with Ehret's ideas about nutrition and health. The only point that made me raise an eyebrow was his opinion of women. I realise he wrote this in a time when women were not as emancipated as they are today. But still. Ehret's philosophy on health is bulletproof. His personal beliefs on other matters, well, nobody's perfect and you can't agree 100% all of the time with everything someone says. That's when you take what you agree with and find of value, and ignore that which doesn't hold wa ...more

In one of Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories, the great detective observed that one could best understand and solve crimes through knowledge of similar skulduggery in the past. The same can be said for medical quackery.

Arnold Ehret was a late nineteenth and early 20th century naturopath whose bizarre and unfounded ideas about nutrition had a brief vogue in his time, were later revived by counterculture enthusiasts in the U.S. in the 1960s, and appear to have gained a limited following in the

Originally published in 1922, The Mucusless Diet Healing System by Arnold Ehret is a “scientific” inquisition into the cause of disease, although this question seems to already be convincingly answered by Ehret himself. Arnold Ehret, a Naturopath, dietetic researcher, and health educator, theorizes that all diseases, which require no use for names because they all have a common origin, essentially are caused by the food we eat.

Throughout the book, Ehret claims and emphasizes among many other th

“True healing is not a "quick fix" but a regeneration that comes from removing all waste from the body.”

When it comes to healthy living, it comes down to your diet, how you eat, when you eat, what you eat. As they rightly say, you become what you eat, Prof. Ehret, through his lifetime of experiments and experiences shows that this is a fact nonetheless, we truly are what we eat indeed.

No one really understands a proper diet, and the generation now keeps mindlessly stuff food that feels and tas

Very logical and good book even it's old, you have to agree with Prof. Ehret and with his idea.
Back to the root, what is the food we were born to eat, but we forgot on our way to the new age? And what is the reason more and more people are getting sick?
This book is timeless I want to read other books on the same topic from the current era, but after reading this book you can get enough motivation to change something in your eating habits.

Though somewhat lacking the advanced scientific and medical perspective of our times, this book has some advices/reasonings/views that are very important to consider and think about. His opinions about fasting, the mucusless diet, exercises, sex, the "superior (mental and physical) state", etc. are all too interesting to ignore I think (the most interesting material is at the end of the book in my opinion). Someone interested in this stuff should give it a go. ...more

Incredibly simple, intuitive explanation of the nature of disease. Includes the basis for transformation from a modern, overfed, and latently diseased "healthy individual" to the highest potential possibility of qualitative health.

Very easy to judge the book on parts that include less than ideal scientific and more than currently accepted anecdotal explanations. Personally, I'll be judging the results, not the unbelievable parts of the text which are most likely so due to cultural, intellectual

Some interesting takeaways about diet and his assertion that food alone is chiefly to blame for all diseases. Ehret’s ideas about fasting (natures method of cleansing/healing) has given me food for thought. He also states that, “the lungs are the pump and the heart is the valve.” He kind of lost me when he started saying that humans skin color/race reflects our health and purity.
Found a few interesting thoughts and ideas in the book which made me think rationally about personal diet and nutrition. However, the book seems very outdated from the medical point of view, all-in-all, a hundred years have passed from the time it was written.

An eating regime based on fruit and fasting. Written in the early 1900’s before fasting became trendy like it is today. Well worth a read, particularly if you have health issues or are overweight and open to a radically different take on the human body and what foods it may run best on.

Better stuff out there on plant based

Some good nuggets overall about plant based diet and fasting but there are too many contradictions and very whacky claims.

Provides a great foundational text for plant based eating. A good source of knowledge to draw additional conclusions from current sources and research.

This book is amazing. So powerful and way ahead of his time. I really loved his no non sense method of writing. He clearly knew what he was doing and found the power of nature to be so profound. This book has really impacted my view on food and diet. I have been vegan for over a month and this book only affirms what I have discovered. I really believe this book has the power to transform our world.
