- The Diet -

To Repeat, Don't Misinterpret The Word 'Diet' to Mean That Just Eating Better Foods is The Answer

There is no use in putting good, clean, healthy food into an already-existing body clogged and obstructed with mucus, pus, drug residue and other toxins.

"You can now realize how wrong and insufficient it is for people to think that all there is to the "Mucus-less Diet" is knowing the right foods!" - Professor Arnold Ehret, 'The Mucusless Diet Healing System

"Vitality does not descend primarily and directly from food, but rather from... how far and how much the function of the human engine is obstructed..." - Professor Arnold Ehret, 'The Mucusless Diet Healing System'

"Only through a mucus-free diet can we expect to eliminate the accumulation of waste and obstructions deposited in the body tissues during a lifetime of wrong eating." - Professor Arnold Ehret, 'The Mucusless Diet Healing System'

To repeat from my homepage, think of The NEW CellularRestorationDiet as 

  • a quest - a long, sometimes arduous, process or journey to get to, or seek out, a more healthy future - motivated by your strongly felt, fervent desire for positive change; or as
  • a campaign - wherein you work in an active and organized way to achieve better health; or as
  • a Strategic Master Plan - a comprehensive, far-reaching, intentional course-of-action to work in an active way to achieve your goal. 


Refining the Whole Foods Plant-Based Diet to Maximize Detoxification

The food plan below is simple. It consists of eating specific acidic and sub-acidic fruits, berries, melons, herbs, the roots turmeric and ginger, and to a lesser degree... less dense green leafy vegetables, sea vegetables, and red clover sprouts. The fruits, berries, melons, herbs and roots intensify detoxification, and the other foods slow and control aggressive detox. Additionally, there are specific supplements to enhance the detoxification process regarding purging parasites and fungi.

Eat ONLY Less Dense, High Water Content, More Energetic, Non-Complex Foods.

Eat Nutrient-Dense Foods, Not Nutrient-Deficient Foods.

Remember: Foods either feed, clean and rebuild, or they fill you with mucus, congestion and inflammation.


A Little Truth Can't Hurt...

“You cannot heal disease… without stopping the eating of the foods which produce disease…” - Professor Arnold Ehret

It's worth repeating from my home page in case you missed it... “All disease, no matter how it manifests or what name it is given, is caused by localized constipation, and/or mucoid plaque or sulfur accumulation and/or lymphatic stagnation, and/or fungal or parasitic overgrowth - most of which inhibit nutrient absorption and all of which are caused by:

  • poor dietary choices
  • poor food combining at the same meal
  • ingestion of meat and/or dairy products
  • ingestion of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides used in agriculture
  • ingestion of sulfur, fluoride and plastics
  • ingestion of heavy metals such as lead, mercury, aluminum and arsenic
  • fermentation and putrification caused by eating bad foods
  • gluten intolerance
  • food/juice pasteurization
  • dental appliances and amalgam fillings
  • applying toxic chemicals to your skin
  • acceptance of toxic vaccines
  • using toxic cleaning chemicals and dryer sheets
  • sleeping on toxic, off- gassing mattresses
  • inhaled substances including cigarette and pipe smoke and/or airborne pollutants
  • chewing tobacco
  • consumption of alcohol and drugs 
  • taking (most) supplements and stimulants, thereby adding to the body's accumulated waste, and/or
  • inadequate physical movement (exercise).” - Doug Hines

"Our diets are dysfunctional on a cosmic scale! We sicken ourselves with the foods we eat, and then spend billions [of dollars] on massive amounts of over-the-counter and prescription medications and other 'health products' to try and counteract the baleful effects of our unhealthy, unnatural diets." - Dr. Milton Mills, M.D.


Misc. Notes About Foods

1: In the 'Choosing and Combining Foods' list below, at first glance one would wonder why a food like lemons would be categorized below as a sub-acidic fruit instead of an acidic fruit. Categorization is based on how a food is digested, not on how a food tastes. Miscombining foods is the source of putrification or fermentation within the intestinal tract. For example, if you were to eat melons on a green salad, the melons would become putrid (rotting) in the time it takes for the salad to digest (a simplistic example).

2: Bold (in the list below) = non-mucus producing foods - Mucus is an aqueous secretion that serves to isolate harmful elements (including bad foods) and protect epithelial cells in various bodily systems. It is most produced in the gastrointestinal tract where mucoid plaque can accumulate on intestinal walls, often for years, thereby inhibiting nutrient uptake and causing disease. Eat less mucus-causing foods and become healthy.

3: "Transition Foods" (those within this paragraph) should be eaten sparingly. Except where you are purposefully using these foods as a transitional diet preceding a more healthy diet, because of their density, complexity and/or because of their sulfur content, you should curtail eating these foods. Avocados, Olives, Oils (fats of any kind), Salad Dressings, Processed Foods, Complex Sweets, Chocolate, All starches (such as carrots, parsnips, potatoes, beets, squashes, yams), Beans, Nuts, Pastas or Grains, Rice, Onions, Garlic, Leeks, Scallions and Cruciferous Vegetables (such as cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kohlrabi, broccoli, cauliflower, turnip, and radish). 

4: The foods in this paragraph cause/promote digestive system fermentation and associated off-gassing, and the sludge of pus, mucoid plaque and/or sulfur buildup. You would be wise to not eat these foods - ever. Refined Sugar, Fried Foods, Oils (any kind), Fish and Seafood, Meat, Dairy and Dairy Products, Poultry or Eggs - all of which, including farm and pasture raised - have high amounts of hormones / steroids / growth stimulants / antibiotics / medicines / tranquilizers / preservatives / pesticides / chemicals / toxins / and parasites. Animals either ingest, or get injected with, these poisons. Then you eat the animals. Where do you think the poisons wind up?

5: Allow more time between meals containing different food groups. Food may not be entirely digested when you think it may. Obviously, different foods have different densities. They, therefore, have different transit times through your digestive system.

Repeating something from my 'Parasites and Fungi' page - Simplified, prolonged transit time, the amount of time foods stays in your digestive tract, creates the conditions wherein food sits in your gut and 'cooks.' This situation is sometimes referred to as a 'culturing medium' enabling fermentation. You overeat bad foods, your digestive tract can't handle the load, and the food sits inside you too long and begins to ferment, decay and rot. Taking advantage of this digestive lag, critters like candida (and parasites) begin to multiply, i.e. overgrow, and live off the ill effects.

6: Juicing vs. Smoothies.  "Juicing is a process which extracts water and nutrients from produce  and discards the indigestible fiber.  Without all the fiber, your digestive system doesn’t have to work as hard to break down the food and absorb the nutrients. In fact, it makes the nutrients more readily available to the body in much larger quantities than if you were to eat the fruits and vegetables whole." - from an article entitled ‘Juicing vs. Blending: Which One Is Better?’ from Food Matters®

I believe there is a downside to Juicing. Juicing results in too much sugar concentration. The nutrient dense juice is absorbed into your blood stream too quickly causing unstable blood sugar levels. - Doug

"Unlike juices, smoothies consist of the entire fruit or vegetable, skin and all, and contain all of the fiber from the vegetables. However, the blending process breaks the fiber apart (which makes the fruit and vegetables easier to digest ) but also helps create a slow, even release of nutrients into the blood stream and avoids blood sugar spikes." - from an article entitled ‘Juicing vs. Blending: Which One Is Better?’ from Food Matters®


The NEW Cellular Restoration Diet - Choosing and Combining Foods

Below are the  best foods. This is the diet you want to aim for after (1) having stopped putting bad foods in your body, and after (2) cleaning out your body's sludge and obstructions via techniques like eating a transitional diet, fasting, exercise, yoga, colon hydrotherapy, and enemas.

 Bold = non/less mucus producing foods

#1:  MELONS:

(Eat alone - Not with other foods)

Non/Less mucus producing:  Watermelon, Cantaloupe, Honeydew

Other:  Casaba, Canary, Charentais, Crane, Crensha, Hami, Horned Musk, Gailia, Korean, Persian, Tiger

#2:  SWEET FRUIT can be combined with SUB-ACIDIC FRUIT & BERRIES

(But not with melons, vegetables or acid fruit)

Non/Less mucus producing:  Dates, Figs, Raisins, Bananas (all of which can slow detox. not for breaking a fast.), Prunes

Other:  Jackfruit, Baby Jackfruit, Longan, Sapodilla, Persimmons, Mamey Sapote, Sharon Fruit, Jujube

#3:  Non-Fatty, SUB-ACIDIC FRUIT & BERRIES  can be combined with SWEET FRUIT and/or ACIDIC FRUIT 

(But not with melons or vegetables)

Non/Less mucus producing:  Lemons, Blackberries, Blueberries, Raspberries, Mangos, Plums, Apricots, Papaya, Cherries*, Apples* (sweet), Grapes*,  Pears*, Peaches*, Strawberries*  (* use organic only - heavy pesticide used in growing non-organic)

Other:  Cherimoya, Currants, Elderberries (cooked), Huckleberries, Guava, Kiwi (Gooseberries), Surinam, Lychee, Mangosteen, Purple Mangosteen, Pizzutello Nero Grapes, Loquat

 #4:  ACIDIC FRUIT  can be combined with SUB-ACIDIC FRUIT & BERRIES

(But not with melons, vegetables or sweet fruit)

Non/Less mucus producing:  Oranges (any kind), Tangerines, Limes, Clementines, Tangelo, Grapefruit, Pineapple (fresh only, others too acidic), Apples* (sour), Nectarines*  (* use organic only - heavy pesticide used in growing non-organic)

Other:  Kumquat, Pomegranates, Pommello, Satsuma, Tamarind, Soursop (Guanabana), Ugli Fruit

Note:  Cranberries are too acidic. Tomatillo is a nightshade. Tomatoes have too much sulfur, and too much pesticide is used in growing.


(But not with melons or any fruit) 

(Can slow, prolong, delay and impede detoxification)

Non/Less mucus producing:  Spinach*, Celery*  (* use organic only - heavy pesticide used in growing non-organic), Lettuce (any kind), Cucumbers, Asparagus, Beet Greens, Kohlrabi Greens, Fenugreek Greens, Mustard Greens, Collard Greens, Endive, Rhubarb (not the leaves. although Rhubarb is a vegetable, it is often put to culinary uses as fruit.), Sea Vegetables (pulse, kelp), Only Red Clover Sprouts (All other sprouts have too much sulfur).

See the notes above: Common foods like Peppers, Cabbage, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Onions and Leeks have too much sulfur. All starches cause mucoid plaque.

#6:  NUTS


(Eat alone - Not with other foods. Exception: Nuts can be eaten with dried, sweet fruits such as dried raisins and/or figs, but never with juicy fruits, because water and fat do not mix.)

(Can slow, prolong, delay and impede detoxification)

(Eat only in moderation. Nuts are high in fat and calories.) 

Although they contain fats and oils, and although some are acidic, I believe a small amount of some nuts and seeds are, overall, good for one's health.

Mildly mucus forming - Moderately alkaline forming:

Macadamias, Almonds, Chestnuts

Mildly mucus forming - Moderately acidic to unsatisfactorily acidic:

Brazil Nuts, Pecans, Walnuts, Hazelnuts, Cashews, Pine Nuts, Pistachios, 

Soy Nuts: (obviously from soybeans)

Peanuts (a legume, not a nut): Peanuts are acidic, create congestion, and are susceptible to mold, while growing, during storage, during shipping, and even while on grocery store shelves.

#7:  SEEDS: Pumpkin, Sesame, Sunflower, Chia, Flaxseeds (ground), Hemp

#8:  ROOTS: Turmeric and Ginger

#9:  Herbs: Plantain and Dandelion (and many others not listed here)

(the entire dandelion plant is edible - the roots, the stem, the leaves, the buds and the flower. If you have a latex allergy, don't eat the stem.)  Watch as Markus Rothkranz discusses 'The Amazing Edible Dandelion.'

"Eating requires responsibility on our part. We must be responsible for choosing quality, life-enhancing foods, that the food's energy may be transformed into some positive, life enhancing result." - Doug Hines

"We've developed a mass-market food production/distribution system that is more dedicated to shelf life than to human life." - Doug Hines

"One day we will come to recognize that plant-based nutrition is not only the foundation of a healthy existence, it is the cornerstone of all of our future achievements." - Doug Hines
