Natural Hygiene Diet

The Natural Hygiene Diet is as easy to understand and to adopt as it is beautiful to see and delicious to eat. The NHA recommends a plant-based diet derived almost exclusively from whole natural plant foods with minimal use (or exclusion) of animal products such as meat, fish, fowl, eggs and dairy products, as well as added oil, salt, sugar, and most processed foods.

These recommendations alone would not make the Natural Hygiene Diet special. Natural Hygiene stands apart from other vegetarian, flexitarian, vegan, and natural food diets in that it recommends that you eat a large portion of your diet uncooked, use a minimum of spices, salt, and other stimulants, and center your diet around fruits and vegetables, seeds and nuts. The dietary recommendations emphasize foods in their natural state to maximize the full symphony of nature's fragile micronutrients and phytochemicals.
