Arnold Ehret 29 July — 10 October was a German health educator and author of several fhret on diet, detoxification, fruitarianism, fasting, food combining, health, longevity, naturopathy, physical culture and vitalism. Ehret was a founder of vitalism in dietetics, and pioneer of Ehretism.

He claimed to have discovered that the human body is an “air-gas engine” that is powered exclusively by oxygen and that a diet consisting of fruits, starchless vegetables and edible green leaves “herbs”which he dubbed ‘mucusless’ foods, is the optimum food for human consumption. Ehret maintained human health was determined by the state of the milieu interior, a term and principle espoused earlier by Louis Pasteur.

He attempted to demonstrate that mucusless foods were the key to peak health and produced a treatise entitled The Mucusless Diet Healing System. Ehret was born inin St. His parents were veterinarians and his grandparents were zyuno His raclonal was a farmer who crafted all of his own farming equipment. Both his father and brother died of tuberculosis and his mother suffered from nephritis.

Ehret’s interests were physics, chemistry, drawing and painting. He also had an affinity for linguistics and could speak German, French, Italian, and English. Inaged 21, he graduated as a Professor of Design from a college in Baden, and was drafted into the military only to be discharged after 9 months of service, because of heart disease. After studying in Frankfurt, he then taught there at a technical school for 15 tacional. At 31, he was diagnosed with Bright’s disease aynuo of the racionxl by Dr Gustav Riedlin, and pronounced incurable by 24 of Europe’s most respected doctors.

He visited several sanitariums in Europe to learn holistic methods and philosophies including the Sebastian Kneipp sanitarium. Inhe traveled to Berlin to study vegetarianism, and where he visited 20 vegetarian restaurants, and the Lebensreform co-operative at ‘Eden’, a vegetarian fruit colony in Oranienburg. He took a arnolc at a university of medicine, physiology and chemistry, ehhret explored natural healing, and later, courses in naturopathy, physical culture, anti-medicine, magnetic healing, mental healing, Christian Science and reform movements.

Still without health, he went to Nice, in France, where he adopted a fruit and milk diet, with mixed results, as he was still unsure about fasting which he had heard about but was unfamiliar with.

After returning to Germany, he reverted to “good eating”. The next winter, he took a trip to Algiers in northern Africa with a French bicyclist, called Peter where he experimented with fasting and a fruit diet.

In a desperate attempt to end his health problems, Shret decided to stop eating, and was surprised to find that he did not starve, but gained in strength and vitality. Due to his new lifestyle, Ehret claimed to have cured himself of his diseases and to be able to perform feats of physiological strength, including a mile bicycle trip from Algiers to Tunis which he undertook with the trained athlete in under 14 days.

Returning to Germany, his sister discouraged him from continuing with fasting. InEhret wrote his article denouncing the “Metabolic Theory”. On a separate journey through southern France to northern Italy where he walked continuously for 56 hours, he ehhret reached the island of Capri which Anita Bauer, Ehret’s stated secretary, later claimed Ehret regarded as “the isle of the blessed”with a follower born in called “Mr B.

They then took a boat to Egypt, traveling on to Palestine, Turkey, Romania, Hungary and Austria, to practice his system. He also allegedly travelled to Persia and India. He then travelled to California, which syuno of special interest to him, since it was undergoing a horticultural renaissance due to botanists like Luther Burbank, who later paid tribute to Ehret.

At the time, the University of California owned the world’s largest collection of rare fruits. The war prevented him returning to Germany so he settled in Mount Washington, where he prepared his manuscripts and diplomas in his cultivated eating gardens.

Ehret worked at Lust’s Yungborn Sanitarium for 5 years. Carl Schultz, a pioneer of naturopathy in California, owned two sanatoriums and teaching institutes. Ehret continued the trend by opening a sanitarium in Alhambra, California, before embarking on a lecture tour.

His course on The Mucusless Diet Healing Systembecame a book of 25 lessons for his students, and later, his most important book. Ehret also developed and marketed the Innerclean Herbal Laxative. Just two weeks after he completed The Mucusless Diet Healing Systemon 9 Octoberhe finished a series of four lectures on Health Thru Fasting and the grape cure, at the Assembly Room of the Angeles Hotel on racionsl and Spring Street, where “at least a hundred persons were unable to secure seats”.


After leaving the building, between According to Ehret’s business partner and publisher, Fred S. Hirsch did not actually witness the fall but found Ehret lying on the street. Some Ehretists have doubts about the official cause of Ehret’s death, including his s German publisher Carl Ayino who questioned whether Ehret’s fall was an accident. Ehret’s powerful healing successes along with his influential and racionxl new lifestyle challenged the medical and agricultural industries, and his writings on racionap and family were regarded as contentious.

In the decades following Ehret’s death, Fred Hirsch had many legal battles with the medical authorities, over the word ‘mucus’, and the Innerclean laxative. Saltman claimed Hirsch’s wife Lucile, had recounted to her that a mystery lady, possibly Anita Bauer, the stated author of the biography about Ehret called The Story Of My Lifeaccompanied Ayhno and Hirsch, that evening.

Saltman concluded that Ehret had slipped in his new shoes on spilled car-oil in the street on the foggy night. In slight contrast, Benedict Lust, who was Ehret’s American publisher prior to Fred Hirsch, maintained that Ehret was “hastily making his way to the railroad station to board the train for his home in the Los Angeles suburbs.

Another theory was that Ehret was in fact with Los Angeles medical doctor John Dequer that night but suffered heart problems due to coffee drinking. However, Ehret denounced coffee, as well as alcohol and tobacco, as “poisons” in his writings, even though in his visit to Egypt, he said people who smoked and drank coffee heavily, yet ate a light vegetarian diet, were not suffering the illnesses of western Europeans.

The day after, Hirsch ordered a medical report, conducted by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office, which confirmed a basal fracture of the skull as the cause of death, and Ehret was cremated and interred at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California; his ashes preserved in a bronze acorn on Coleus Terrace. For 65 years, Fred and Lucille Hirsch published Ehret’s literature and the torch symbol found on Ehret’s books became the logo of the Ehret Health Club.

Inthe Ehret Literature Publishing Company Inc, in New York, inherited Ehret’s publications and archive of unpublished German manuscripts on nature cure, natural diet, physiology, history, philosophy, religion, metaphysics, spirituality and Nietzsche including The Ascona Lectures and About The Healthy Human. A 5 stanza poem entitled “Ehretism”, also in the archive, has appeared at the Breathairean Ensemble website.

The new book featured new photos of Ehret, Ehret’s birth certificate, his death certificate and the advertisement in the Los Angeles Times of 8 October, advertising the final ‘free lecture’. Ehret claimed that pus- and mucus-forming foods were the cause of human disease, “schleimlose” slime-free foods were the key to human health and “fasting simply eating less is Nature’s omnipotent method of cleansing the body from the effects of wrong and too much eating.

InWilliam Cullen referred to mucus as ‘butyraceous matter’ and inGustav Schlickeysen referred to a mucus layer beneath the human skin in Obst Und Brod. It was later termed ‘mucin’ by Dr.

Teofilo De La Torre in the s, ‘mucous’ by Morris Krok in the s, ‘impacted fecal matter’ by Norman Walker in the s ‘mucoid matter’ by Robert Gray in the s, and ‘mucoid plaque’ in the s. In the s, Daniel Reid re-introduced the term ‘mucus’. Gray made a further distinction between healthy and unhealthy mucus, and how certain substances left an internal residue which the body suspended in mucus, in contrast with a fruitarian diet. AroundEhret engaged in a series of public lectures and fasts monitored by German and Swiss officials.

Within 14 months, Ehret fasted for days without food. Inhe fasted, in total, for days. Inhe wrote an article for a German vegetarian magazine about his day fasting experience, which gained the public’s interest, and which later appeared in his book Lebensfragen Life Questions.

Having denounced the nitrogenous-albumin metabolic theory inEhret learned of a contemporary, Thomas Powell M. Powell had set out his beliefs in the book “Fundamentals and Requirements of Health and Disease”, published in Ehret claimed alkaline foods, which were also mucusless, formed the natural diet of humans.

His findings about food values and pH values, were supported by chemist, Julius Hensel, and Swedish chemist, Ragnar Berg. InEhret conducted seminars and conferences in Germany, Switzerland and Monaco, about his discoveries, gaining support from Dr.

Katz, the owner of a natural healing center in Stuttgart who wrote about Ehret in Lebeskunst magazine in Along with his sister, Ehret was brought up as a Roman Catholic.

He believed in God, but took issue with the Church because of its dietary requirements in a letter to the Pope, and subsequently quit the Church, though his faith in God remained.


After his death, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, who was aware of his writings on Jesus, wrote to Fred Hirsch to confirm he would ban Catholics from reading Ehret’s religious writings, if published.

Prior to this, Ehret was popular with the bishop and the Catholic fraternity, due to the strong tradition of fasting within the Church. According to Hirsch, in Ehret’s unpublished book about Jesus, and letter to the Pope, Ehret described his belief that Jesus had not died on the cross, but had been taken down alive and revived with herbs and ointments.

Ehret believed his proposed diet led to absolute communion with God. The Mucusless Diet Healing System MDHS consists of various kinds of raw and cooked fruits, starchless vegetables and edible green leaves, to re-alkalize the body and ehtet new blood.

It uses a combination of long and short-term rational fasts, menus that arnole change to non-mucus-forming foods, and colonic irrigation.

Ehret believed that by using his transition diet system, any serious practitioner could move away from mucus-forming foods to non-mucus forming foods, especially using mineral-rich organic produce. However, he recommended caution and rationality during the transition program, since too rapid detoxification could lead to various illness symptoms depending on the individual’s constitutional weaknesses and approach to the system.

When toxemia or mucus entered the blood circulation system too quickly or where food combining was not followed, elimination of toxins and assimilation of nutrients, could be hindered.

This was later affirmed by Jethro Kloss and Henry Bieler. Ehret also claimed the lungs were the pump in the body while the heart acted as a valve, with the blood controlling the heart – a concept also mentioned by Dr M. Ehret further believed that white blood cells were the result of ingesting mucus-forming foods.

Ehret maintained new tissue was built primarily from simple sugars in fruits, not metabolised from protein and fat-rich foods. Ehret only favored nuts and seeds during transition to the ideal fruit diet, and even then, only “sparingly”, condemning high-protein and fat-rich foods, as “unnatural”; further writing that “no animals eat fats” and “all fats are acid forming,even those of vegetable origin, and are not used by the body” Later editions of his Mucusless Diet Healing System published by Fred S.

Hirsch, claimed nuts were “mucus-free”. Ehret specifically renounced meat, eggs, milk, fats, cereals, legumes, potatoes and rice, whilst recognizing the transitional value in some of these.

Ehret, citing Ragnar Berg, stated that fats and proteins were acid-forming and were to be consumed in moderation, as did Ehret’s contemporary Otto Carque. This may increase calcium excretion and weaken bones.

Ehret believed a fruitarian diet was the ideal diet, however he was unable to demonstrate the long term viability of this diet, due to his sudden death at age 53 after he slipped and fell. In his writings, Herbert Shelton claimed Ehret had admitted in a public lecture that he had little experience or understanding of fasting. Shelton also claimed Ehret made no distinction between mucus and pus, even though Ehret explained blood vessels can be obstructed with mucus-forming foods, which decompose, ferment and degenerate into pus.

Johnny Lovewisdom claimed that Shelton claimed that Ehret enjoyed coffee, wine and cigarettes, and that coffee drinking caused his demise. In “Lebensfragen”, Ehret described his use of coffee, alcohol and cigars, prior to his detoxification path, and use of meat, during his early dietary experiments.

Lovewisdom also maintained that Ehret promoted grains, nuts and seeds as ideal foods, even though Ehret described them as part of “The Destructive Diet Of Civilization”.

In his writings, Ehret differentiated his method from natural hygiene orthopathynaturopathy, rawfoodism, vegetarianism, the mineral supplement movement, and other systems, since his knowledge of disease and other concepts contrasted with theirs. Natural hygienists have criticized Ehret for renouncing nuts and seeds as ideal foods, whilst advocating other foods in transition such as sauerkraut.

Rawfoodists have criticized Ehret’s use of cooked foods, which are applied selectively, in his transition program. Another common criticism is that a diet low in protein and carbohydrates, would lead to a drop in blood sugar, causing decreased insulin sensitivity, leading to a state of excitability. Mucusless diets were critiqued in the book “Diet and Die” by Carl Mamberg in Ehret was criticized by Herbert Shelton who did not distinguish between natural and unnatural mucus, unlike Robert Gray.
