The natural hygiene diet was founded during the natural hygiene movement, which started in 1830. This primarily vegetarian diet advocates the many health benefits of eating a mostly raw diet through consumption of uncooked, unrefined and organic foods. To this end, following this diet involves eating mostly uncooked foods, limiting the use of spices and salt, avoiding stimulants such as caffeine and primarily eating plant foods such as vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds.


The Natural Hygiene Diet has many advantages for both losing weight and improving overall health. Firstly, the diet helps in disease protection, increasing energy levels, improved digestion and weight control. The diet is also attributed to improved health since research has shown that beneficial components required by the body are optimal when food is as close to its living state as possible. Also, natural foods contain enzymes, energy and a life force that are destroyed whenever food is exposed to high temperatures. Eating raw foods also helps prevent diseases like headaches, allergies, high blood pressure and asthma.


Studies have also shown that by following a strict natural hygiene diet, one is in a position to discover that the body is self-healing and self-maintaining system whose natural lifespan can be extended to more than 120 years. The detoxification that is enjoyed by a user of the diet is also beneficial in the general enlightenment and spiritual awareness of a person. The diet assists in overcoming illness the more natural way hence helping rejuvenate the body. Further, the diet helps one avoid colds and suffering thus preventing pain and suffering and in the process avoiding medical bills that would have otherwise been incurred.


The natural hygiene diet minimizes the risk of exposure to toxins in foods by avoiding the consumption of most meats. Fish is the only meat permitted in this diet and must be eaten raw and bought organic or wild. Compared to other meats, such as beef, pork and poultry, fish contains more nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, minerals and vitamins.


One of the benefits of the natural hygiene diet is it is easy to prepare most meals. Many foods in this diet are fruits, vegetables, nuts and dairy that requires no preparation before they can be eaten. One of the drawbacks of the natural hygiene diet is that it is somewhat restrictive and some people may find it difficult to follow for longer periods of time.
