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. Spira has sold tens of thousands of books to health-seekers since becoming a publisher, with his annotated version of the Mucusless Diet frequently making it into Amazon's Top 10 best seller's list for Naturopathy, Health, Fitness, Dieting, Alternative Medicine, and Healing.
