A person suffering from mental illness can, through a long fast, relieve congestion of the brain. One man on the verge of insanity was cured by a four-week fast. There is nothing easier to heal by fasting than insanity. The insane lose their reason, and their natural instinct tells them not to eat. When using the Mucusless Diet Healing System to heal other illnesses, most people are relieved of certain mental conditions as well. After a fast, the mind becomes clearer. If you have a medical condition, look first at the stomach. A mentally ill person suffers physiologically from gas pressure on the brain.

Fasting has been known for over a thousand years as a treatment for disease, as Nature’s only and infallible law, and the same applies to a mucusless diet. But why has it never come into general use and achieved universal success? Because it has never been used systematically in accordance with the condition of the person. The average person does not have the slightest idea what the necessary eliminative process is; how much time is required; how and how often one’s diet must be changed; and what it means to cleanse the body of the terrible quantities of waste it has accumulated over the years.
