'Food experts' without exception give the advice: 'Yes, you require more protein to overcome your weakness.' This faulty advice is partly the 'tragedy of nutrition'.

"Pythagoras, an immortal mathematical genius, vegetarian and founder of a high-standing school of philosophy, went to Egypt to learn more about the "secret sciences" of that country. Before he was allowed to enter into the school of the learned, called High Priests at this time, he had to undergo a fast of forty days, under supervision, outside of the city. Believing that this was a test of his willpower and energy, he was told this: 'Forty days' fast is necessary in order that you may grasp what we will teach you.'"

Meanwhile, the majority of vegetarians "slimes" on. Vegetarian representatives of both sexes are undifferentiated from "Munich Beer-bellies", a result of cramming in all that "mucus-food" on a daily basis. Compared to this, indicted poisons like meat, alcohol, coffee, and tobacco are relatively harmless, consumed in small amounts. Are there not thousands of people living to advanced age, who are habitual smokers with a fondness for alcoholic beverages? They are just small eaters! This is the solution! Even these habitual toxins are less harmful than stuffing oneself regularly with good old "comfort" foods. As professor Sylvester Graham puts it: "A drunkard can get old, a glutton never."

I will present some explanations here to prevent misunderstandings among teetotalers and vegetarians. Meat is not a food. Rather, it is a stimulus that putrefies in the stomach. This putrefaction does not start in the stomach, however, but immediately after the slaughter of the animal. Graham has proved this for living humans, and I add to this fact that meat works as a stimulant through the toxins of putrefaction, and is therefore perceived as an energy providing food. I do not believe that anybody can find chemical-physiological evidence that a putrefying protein-molecule gets transformed in the stomach to be revived in a person's muscle as available energy. Similar to alcohol and other stimulants, meat initially appears to give strength and energy until the whole organism is contaminated by it and inevitably breaks down.

The basic evil of all non-vegetarian diets is the overconsumption of meat, which leads to other evils, such as craving for alcohol. Eating a fruit only diet avoids the craving for alcohol, while carnivores constantly have to fight the lust for it, because meat calls the demon "thirst" into the great plan of life. Evidently alcohol servers as some kind of counter-toxin for meat. City gourmets, primarily living off meat, need wine, coffee, and tobacco as partial counter-toxin for their meat poisoning. It is a ironic matter of fact that one's physical condition after eating an opulent dinner will be better if the meal is consumed with small doses of such toxic stimulants than without them.

I absolutely declare war against meat and alcohol; eating fruit and generally eating little vigorously counteracts the consumption of meat and alcohol. Nevertheless, there is great irony in the fact that people who consume both meat and alcohol, but in small portions, are in a better position by far than vegetarians who eat too much.

In the final analysis every disease is a clogging of the tiniest blood vessels, the capillaries, with mucus. If the pipes of a city's water supply have dirty water pumped through them because of clogged filters, nobody would think of cleaning these pipes without stopping the flow of dirty water during the repair work. More importantly, wise people would immediately direct their attention to the reservoir, the distribution center, and the faulty filters and malfunctioning pump. But these can only be fixed when the dirty water stops running."I am thy Lord, thy healer" translates ihn our time as: 'Only nature heals, purifies, and de-clogs infallibly and totally-but only if you stop supplying your body with mucus-forming food'. Every physiological machine, whether human or animal purifies itself instantly and automatically, dissolving the mucus in the clogged pipes as soon as the intake of solid food stops. During a fast, even the healthiest person will eliminate mucus, which can be detected in the urine if collected in a glass and allowed to cool. Whoever denies, ignores or suppresses this fact because it is inconvenient or not "scientific" enough, carries the responsibility of covering up the discovery of the main cause of every disease, bur more so, inflicts the worst injury on himself.

After almost two years on living on fruit only, with intermittent fasting periods, I attained a state of health hardly imaginable in today's world. For example, I was able to conduct experiments such as I described in my article "A 49 Day Fasting Experiment" (published in Vegetarische Warte" (Vegetarian Observer) 1909/10), with the following results:

When I made a cut in my forearm with a knife, there was no bleeding, because the blood coagulated immediately. The would closed instantly-no inflammation, no pain, no mucus and no pus. In three days the wound was totally healed and the scab had fallen off. Later I repeated the experiment after eating vegetarian food including mucus-forming carbohydrates, but without eggs or milk. The result was that the would bled a little; I had some pain and some pus oozed out of the wound. There was some inflammation and it took quite a while for the wound to heal. Some time later I conducted the same experiment while on a diet including meat and moderate alcohol. The result was an extended period of bleeding. The blood was light, red and thin, and thee was inflammation, pain, and several days of pus. The wound only healed after two days of fasting.

My first major point is that every illness, without exception, is an attempt by the body to eliminate mucus and, in advanced stages, pus (disintegrated blood). Every healthy organism of course must contain a certain amount of naturally occurring mucus, called lymph, the fatty mucus-like substance of the colon. Every medical expert dealing with cathartic problems, from a harmless runny nose to pneumonia and tuberculosis, will attest to this fact. But we are examining here a very unnatural and unhealthy mucus condition which is epidemic in modern society. The body's attempt to eliminate excess mucus is not always obvious in diseases of ears, eyes, skin diseases, stomach problems, heart trouble, rheumatism, arthritis, etc., not to mention in mental disturbances. And yet excess mucus is the main cause of the problem. Mucus, which can no longer be eliminated through natural means, enters the blood and reappears at a location where the blood circulation is reduced (perhaps because of a strong chill) as a heat symptom, an inflammation, a pain, or maybe a fever produced by the body.

If you put a sick person on a mucusless diet, say fruit, or even just water or lemonade, the energy usually used for digestion (and now free for the first time in decades) will immediately attack and try to dissolve the hardened masses of mucus that have accumulated in the body since childhood. And what is the result? With absolute certainty this mucus will manifest itself in the urine and feces. I call these hardened masses of mucus, present at the center of every pathological abnormality, the common root cause of every illness. If the disease is in an advanced stage, to the degree that there are pathological tissue changes deep inside ht body, you will also see the elimination of pus. As soon as the mucus-forming artificial food, like fat meat, bread, potatoes, pasta, rice, milk, etc. are discontinued, the bloodstream will attack mucus and pus and will eliminate both through the urine. In people with a high degree of mucus the body will use each and every body opening and elimination channel to rid itself of the poisons.

If you cook potatoes, flour, rice or meat long enough you will end up with gelatin-like, thick mucus substance. It looks very much like the glue that bookbinders and woodworkers use as adhesives. This mucus-like substance soon turns acidic, starts to ferment, and becomes the breeding ground for fungi, mold, and bacteria. In the digestive process, which is, chemically speaking, nothing but a kind of cooking and brewing process, this mucus-this glue-is separated out, because blood can only absorb the glucose which has been extracted from the carbohydrates. The remaining byproduct, the mucus or glue, is an alien substance for the body which must be eliminated completely from the earliest stage of life on.

Now it becomes clear that, in the course of a lifetime, the digestive tract and the colon are increasingly clogged up with mucus. This glue-like substance, the residue of plant and animal material, continues to ferment, and finally clogs up the arteries and affects the blood's ability to regenerate the whole system.
