Who is Prof. Arnold Ehret?

Professor Arnold Ehret was a German healer, dietitian, philosopher, teacher, visionary, and one of the first people to advocate fasting and a plant-based, mucus-free lifestyle as a therapy for healing. For over 120 years, his written works and teachings have touched the lives of thousands of health-seekers pursuing higher levels of vitality and healing. Ehret's most famous books, Mucusless Diet Healing System and Rational Fasting, continue to increase in popularity as plant-based, vegan, and raw-food diets become more prevalent. Ehret believed that pus- and mucus-forming foods were unnatural for humans to eat, and suggested that a diet of fruits and green leafy vegetables (i.e., mucus-free foods), are the most healing and powerful foods for humans. Ehret offers a sophisticated yet simple and safe transitional system for those who endeavor to stop eating pus- and mucus-forming foods.

Spira's journey with the Mucusless Diet Healing System began when he met a jazz drummer named Willie Smart Jr. (aka Brother Air) who told him about Arnold Ehret's books. Within 6 months of reading them he lost over 100 pounds and overcame major ailments that had plagued him since childhood. People soon started asking him to help them learn about the Mucusless Diet, and Spira realized that he had a gift for explaining and helping others understand Ehret's Healing System. In 2014, Spira started Mucus-free Life LLC, which currently publishes several books related to the mucus-free lifestyle.

Brother Air (aka Willie Smart Jr.) is a professional jazz drummer, percussionist, long-term Mucusless Diet Healing System practitioner, fasting expert, and visionary. Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, Brother Air's health journey began when he attended a presentation given by the civil rights activist and plant-based eating advocate Dick Gregory at the age of 15. In the early 1980s, Brother Air came into contact with a group of people in Cincinnati that practiced Arnold Ehret's Mucusless Diet Healing System.


After almost 20 years of practicing the mucusless diet, he began to gain profound mastery of the System. In 2001 he did his first year of eating nothing but fruit, and then starting in November of 2003, he began doing periods of long-term juice fasting (8+ months per stretch). Yet, Brother Air does not advocate or teach long-term fasting, but how to learn and live the fundamentals of practicing the Mucusless Diet. 


Brother Air is an incredibly dynamic speaker that leaves his audiences electrified and inspired. As an educator, he has personally taught hundreds how to practice the Mucusless Diet, and his innovations and advocacy has inspired hundreds of thousands to consider traveling down the mucus-free path.
