Miseducated societies are fraught with confusion, nonsensical thinking, destructive behaviors, incessant turmoil, suffering, and, if carried too far, extinction. Does this sound familiar? Indeed, sadly, this is our reality.

But, with the human capacity to focus our indomitable will to overcome and prosper, the potential to achieve the reversal of the world’s perilous descent is in our hands. Correct education is the key.

All things good can come from efforts which are congruent with the Laws of Nature. Every man, woman and child needs an accurate education in natural living and health care. There is no greater need at this time! In his classic Natural Hygiene: Man’s Pristine Way of Life, the great Natural Hygiene educator/doctor Dr. Herbert M. Shelton wrote:

“‘Perhaps the greatest want of our age is a correct education of the physiology of our being and the laws that govern life, health and disease.”

We must think clearly if we wish to fulfill our wishes of improving every aspect of our lives and living well. It all starts with correct education, or, re-education.

At least 99% of the thoughts humanity entertains about health are wrong! Even those who have just begun reading about the promises of healthful vegan, rawfood, fruitarian and Hygienic living have a lot to unlearn. There is much to learn anew, and the new education must be accurate! This is the social imperative of our day.

Educational Excellence

Education can be distilled down to this quote by the famed 19th century English biologist Thomas Henry Huxley:

“Education is the instruction of the intellect in the Laws of Nature.”

This so true! With regard to health and ecology, every system of thought must be grounded in an accurate understanding of the true physiological and biological Laws of Nature, as well as an accurate understanding of humans’ true biological nature. All else is delusion, begetting turmoil and disease.

The only true system of thought with regard to healthful living, and the only basis of educational excellence, is Natural Hygiene, which we also call Vibrant Living.

Natural Hygiene is based upon an accurate understanding of physiology, biology and a huge, time-honored body of empirical evidence. It is the art and science of living healthfully, or vibrantly, fulfilling the Prime Requisites of Health, in accord with our natural biological mandates. Natural Hygienists / Vibrant Living Enthusiasts refer to Nature as our mentor and teacher.

Natural Hygiene teaches us the Natural Laws of Life: i.e., the nature and purpose of disease, how to restore health relying on our awesome self-healing powers, and how to live in optimum wellness. It can be considered to be “applied human physiology.” The Natural Hygiene teaching model holds that Vibrant Health is our God-given birthright and this is attainable via Vibrant Living. It embodies those principles which guide us to correct living practices. Natural Hygiene is timeless—it is simply the one and only science of wholistic natural health. No other health system has proven to be more effective in the restoration and preservation of health.

In Natural Hygiene: Man’s Pristine Way of Life, Dr. Herbert M. Shelton also wrote:

“Great responsibilities rest upon us. Hygiene comes as a savior of the race. If we are to fulfill our obligations, we must be teachers of the people. We must dispel the darkness of ignorance and superstition with the glorious sunlight of truth; we must spread a true knowledge of the laws which govern our being. Ours is a positive program that offers the people, as a substitute for the wrong ways of life, ways that are in strict accord with the Laws of Life.”

Natural Hygiene must be our sole teaching basis as all other health systems mislead us onto delusional, disempowering paths because they are unnatural, disconnected from our true nature. They are life-debilitating, rather than life-enhancing.

The natural way is best! Why? Because nothing can trump Nature, and the natural way begets the surest and most sublime results. As all living organisms and systems were designed by Nature, abiding by Nature’s “operating manual” is the only wise way to live!

The Vibrant Health & Wealth Academy teaches and trains Vibrant Health Teacher-Counselors in all of these precise hygienic principles.


Natural Hygiene

What is Natural Hygiene and what is so special about it? “Hygiene” is literally “health.” “Natural Hygiene” is the science and fine art of holistic, natural, healthful living. There are many approaches and “schools” of health, but the true nature of holistic natural health is presented in only one system or curriculum of study: Natural Hygiene. Based upon an accurate understanding of physiology, biology and a huge, time-honored body of empirical evidence, Natural Hygiene teaches us the Natural Laws of Life—i.e., the nature and purpose of disease, how to restore health and how to live in optimum wellness. Hygienic counselors have the greatest success in helping people recover from illness and create truly vibrant health, because we guide clients in the application of the true requisites of healing, primarily: fresh air and water, rest, sleep, nutritious pure foods to which we are biologically suited, appropriate exercise, and careful support which empowers individuals to heal via their own God-given ability. The world must learn Hygiene!

Natural Hygiene is timeless—it is simply the one and only science of holistic, natural health. It stands alone as the proven way to help people heal and rejuvenate in mind, body and spirit. This course of study is the most empowering and yields the best results. Our clients love us because we teach the truth, they get results beyond their expectations, they save bundles of money, overcome suffering and sing new songs of joy. When our clients learn Nature’s laws and provide the true requisites of health, they unerringly meet with healing success and create happy outcomes. Now, that’s the hallmark of a truly excellent and fulfilling career!

The Hallmarks of Educational Excellence

A truly excellent teacher, such as a Vibrant Health & Wealth Academy Teacher-Counselor, embodies truth, integrity, compassion, wisdom and goodness, and radiates the glow of extraordinary vibrance. Natural Hygiene is his or her sole teaching basis, and the means by which consistently superb results are achieved—naturally!

The chief role of a truly excellent teacher-counselor is to:

• teach students and clients the principles of Natural Hygiene/Vibrant Living
• instruct students and clients how to avoid the traps of unhealthful habits which plague humanity
• empower students and clients with the ultimate natural precepts and guidelines for achieving the pinnacle of health—Vibrant Health
• instruct students and clients to think for themselves wholistically
• instruct students and clients to observe Nature and abide by her Laws
• instruct students and clients to be intuitive and apply natural common sense so that they become free of the common dogma of the ages regarding disease causation, healing and diet

A truly excellent teacher-counselor’s students and clients learn how their dietary and other lifestyle choices are key factors in the performance of their physiological functions and the preservation of their health. They are taught how to remove the causes of their diseases and apply Vibrant Lifestyle practices which will liberate them from disease. They are instilled with supreme confidence in their own intellectual capabilities, to find the information they need and to deduce the answers using true science and natural logic. They are informed of the supreme necessity of assuming 100% responsibility for taking care of their own health. They are empowered to become their own doctor, whereby they make health decisions based upon their own intuition and the common sense of the Laws of Life.

A truly excellent teacher-counselor imparts to his or her students and clients the proper understanding of the physiology of detoxification and what the body requires to rejuvenate. In turn, with skillful guidance, clients will rejuvenate and reach loftier heights in health and physical and mental performance than previously experienced. The teacher-counselor’s students and clients will understand that with an alkalized body which is no longer stifled by toxin-induced fatigue, stiffness, weakness and pain, and free of the misery of failing bodily functions and the effects of drug treatments, they will become energized, feel more alive and joyful, and get more out of life. They’ll discover what a magnificent self-healing, high-performance, energetic marvel their body is when it’s bathed in an alkaline environment which is fed the Vibrant Diet.


The Vibrant Diet model of healthful eating is a key element taught by a truly excellent teacher-counselor—it sets him or her apart from virtually all other schools of diet and nutrition. The Vibrant Diet is humans’ natural biological diet. It has proven to be the most health-promoting of all dietary models for humans, and the only logical way to go when we consider human nutrition, health restoration and health maintenance. It brings people back to life!

The Vibrant Diet is based on conclusive evidence that we are biologically and physiologically frugivores. As such, fruit stands as our natural and healthful food. The Vibrant Diet consists of our most naturally healthful, delicious and satisfying foods: raw fruits and vegetables with minimal amounts of seeds, and nuts. The Vibrant Diet is comprised of 90% alkalizing foods, averaging the following caloronutrient ratio: 80% carbohydrates, 10% protein, 10% fat. Eating 75% raw is a good place to start, with the goal of working one’s way up to 100 percent raw. The Vibrant Diet reverses and prevents acidosis, the predominant underlying condition which causes most diseases and the physical degeneration humanity experiences. This vivifying diet promotes complete healing of most disease conditions and complete rejuvenation, attended by peak strength, endurance, longevity and a joyful sense of Vibrant Health. Many have realized these wonderful benefits for themselves, and many more need to receive our vital message and our help in adopting the Vibrant Diet.

Truly excellent teacher-counselors have the greatest success in helping people recover from illness and create truly vibrant health. They are living examples of the highest level of health attainment, and will stand out as a beacon of Vibrant Living and educational excellence. Their clients love them because they teach the truth, they get results beyond their expectations, they save bundles of money, overcome suffering and sing new songs of joy. When their clients learn Nature’s laws and provide the true requisites of health, they unerringly meet with healing success and create joyously happy outcomes.

Begin Correctly & Learn For Life


A thorough education in Natural Hygiene / Vibrant Living is the pathway to achieving elite status in educational excellence. There is no truer or more empowering way to go! The true beauty of life and its highest joys can only be realized via correct thinking and Vibrant Living. To truly know yourself and fulfill your true potential, become a student and practitioner of Vibrant Living. You’ll love the results and will likely become highly inspired to share your knowledge and positively affect the lives of many. That’s human nature—the world needs just that!

Would you like to create a superior and truly fulfilling career as a holistic natural health professional, helping people to become truly healthy?

Why I Created the Vibrant Health and Wealth Academy


Why I Created the Vibrant Health & Wealth Academy

by David Klein, Ph.D.
Dean and Program Co-Director

Last year, the 30th anniversary of my natural health awakening and grand healing, an exhilarating vision embraced me, sparking a momentous life decision. Sensing that the time was ripe to “give my all” as an educator-counselor-career mentor, and heeding this calling as my moral duty, I decided to share all I have learned and began to establish the ultimate online health school with my wonderful wife Annette. The Vibrant Health & Wealth Academy—the culmination of my life’s work—has been born!

The Vibrant Health & Wealth Academy was launched in January of this year. Its mission is trifold: 1. to teach the Natural Laws of Life and empower the health seekers to heal and live vibrantly, 2. to train Vibrant Health Teacher-Counselors to be exceptionally effective wholistic health professionals, and 3. to provide Vibrant Health Entrepreneurs with my digital ebook and magazine products, guide them in setting up their own web-based businesses, and mentor them throughout their Vibrant Health Teacher-Counselor-Entrepreneur careers.

I think that the Vibrant Health & Wealth Academy stands as the most innovative health school in the world. Its truth-illuminating curriculum will power health counseling careers like no other program. Our graduates will shine and stand tall among the most highly-educated and well-trained wholistic health professionals in the world.

The world needs brilliant, correctly educated trained, wholistic health teachers and counselors like never before! I am aiming to enroll hundreds of students this year.

The Preamble to the Constitution of the United States states:

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

To me, “welfare” refers to the health, happiness, and fortunes of the people of the USA. Since the governments of the USA and most other countries in our world are not doing their jobs of promoting the general welfare of their people, I’ve created the Vibrant Health & Wealth Academy to do just that!

These golden words by Natural Hygiene great, Dr. Herbert M. Shelton, impelled me like no other to create the Vibrant Health & Wealth Academy:

“The first need of our world is education.”

“Perhaps the greatest want of our age is a correct knowledge of the physiology of our being and the laws that govern life, health and disease.”

“In the consciousness of our great duty to the people of the world and to posterity, in the knowledge that we are right in all essentials, in everything that matters, and that mankind must ultimately accept Hygienic principles and practices, in the certainty that no other program will or can serve the well and the sick and the cause of humanity at large in this critical hour, and in the full realization that in the rightness of our principles lies our strength and drawing our fortitude and stamina, our resolution and our irresistible determination from this realization, we must not falter in our work.”

“Great responsibilities rest upon us. If we are to fulfill our obligations, we must be teachers of the people. We must dispel the darkness of ignorance and superstition with the glorious sunlight of truth; we must spread a true knowledge of the laws which govern our being. Ours is a positive program that offers the people, as a substitute for the wrong ways of life, ways that are in strict accord with the Laws of Life.”

My commitment to carrying forward the grand legacy of Dr. Shelton and the other great Natural Hygiene educators is more passionate than ever. As Dr. Shelton said, “there is much to do.”

While the name “Natural Hygiene” never caught on, I am hopeful that its synonym, “Vibrant Health,” will take root. I also hope that you and many others will either partake in our program or support the mission via social networking, word-of-mouth referrals and/or benefaction. If you agree that the world needs a multitude of Vibrant Health Teacher-Counselors, I’d love to hear from you.

Eating to Maintain Mind-Body Purity

Eating to Maintain Mind-Body Purity

by David Klein, Ph.D., Naturorthopathic Doctor

Fresh as a daisy, inside and out. No more waking up groggy-headed with morning breath, crusty eyes and headaches. No more foul body odors, indigestion, intestinal wind, skin rashes, oily and falling hair.

Doesn’t that all sound appealing? By eating properly, you can achieve a clean, attractive and youthful body, and improve your mental alertness and self-esteem to boot! Your entire body can rejuvenate, you can slow down the aging process to a crawl and feel great all of the time!

The Joys of Vibrant Eating

Fasting-and Eating-3-inEating in a manner whereby food does not digest completely will ruin our health. Eating in a manner which enables perfect digestion is the pathway to flourishing health!
When we eat in a manner whereby everything digests completely, we derive outstanding results! When our natural foods digest completely, we can experience these major benefits and more:

* a clean internal bodily environment,
* a silent, unnoticeable digestive system,
* a clear mind and stable metabolism, unfettered by chemical imbalances caused by toxemia (a toxic blood stream),
* pleasant or no body odors,
* pleasant or no body waste odors,
* effortless, pleasant, regular bodily waste evacuation,
* freedom from most illnesses and strong resistance to environmental pathogens,
* the promotion of excellent, dynamic health, physical beauty and longevity.

The Miseries of Unhealthful Eating

When we eat unwisely, whether in our choice of food or in our manner of eating, nutrients decompose in our gut via the action of bacteria. We do have digestive limitations! Under this scenario, fermentive and putrefactive bacteria decompose the food matter, weakening the intestinal tract, impairing nutrient absorption, defiling our entire body with pathological substances, impairing our mental functions and causing fatigue. This condition is known as “toxicosis” (general bodily toxicity or “auto-intoxication”) or, less formally, as “food drunkenness”; it impairs our health and eventually imperils our life. Indigestion (flatulence, belching, bloating) and foul bowel and body odors are just some of the unpleasant warnings signaling the beginning of illness.

Undigested protein (chiefly from meat, dairy products, beans, nuts and seeds) will readily putrefy (rot) in our warm gut, just as milk spoils at room temperature on a warm day. Putrefactive byproducts are highly toxic and carcinogenic. They include: methane, hydrogen sulfide and mercaptans (which yield the rotten egg odor when carried out by the methane gas), cadaverine, putrescine, ammonias, indoles, skatoles, leukomaines and host of other toxic and carcinogenic gases and substances. Just as hydrogen sulfide gas will decompose concrete, iron and steel sewer pipes, it will irritate and destroy the flesh inside our intestines and colon.

Under haphazard eating conditions, simple carbohydrates (from fruit) and complex carbohydrates (starches from grain products and white potatoes) are readily fermented by fungi and bacteria in the gut. The result is the production of alcohol and vinegar which is dozens of times more toxic than alcohol. These ravage bowel tissue and can cause painful ulcerations.

Furthermore, the overeating of slow-digesting, fatty, high-protein foods causes the stomach to secrete and retain copious amounts of acid. When this hyper-acidic condition occurs chronically, the stomach and intestines can become inflamed and ulcerated and the pylorus sphincter, which normally allows food to enter the duodenum, can become swollen shut. This typically leads to fermentation and putrefaction of the stomach’s contents, GERD (gastroesophogeal reflux disease), vomiting and great pain. Chronic inflammation and ulceration lead to cancer.

It is imperative to avoid operating our gut as a composting bin filled with odoriferous, rotting, acidic wastes at all costs! The toxicosis that results from indiscriminate, haphazard eating accelerates aging, causes disease, including gastritis, irritable bowel, colitis, Crohn’s disease and ulcers, and is the cause of most deaths! We don’t really want to endure chronic, incomplete digestion and toxic bowels. Sadly, most live this way and accept it as “normal.” Happily, there is a way to create perfect bowel health.

The Formula for Perfect Digestion and Vibrant Health

Via the science and fine art of selecting our natural biological foods and eating them correctly–i.e., only when we are truly hungry, alert and relaxed, in proper sequence and combinations, in quantities which do not exceed our digestive limitations or point of satiation, in their fresh, ripe, raw state and chewed to the point of liquefaction–we can enjoy complete, perfect digestion and all the wonderful benefits of a well-nourished and clean body!

Here are basic, time-tested, scientifically proven Vibrant Diet eating guidelines for promoting optimum digestion and gut health.

Food Selection: Choose fresh, ripe, raw, organic, whole, vegan foods. Base your diet in fruits and vegetables and eat only those foods which are attractive to your senses, especially your sense of taste. Obtain enough calories from fruit to maintain sustained peak energy and internal cleanliness. Avoid animal-derived foods–they are poorly digested and toxic when cooked. If you choose grains and legumes/beans (neither are recommended, since they also digest poorly), select them in their whole state and either sprout or cook them lightly. If you choose to cook vegetables, light steaming is the least deleterious method; however, they won’t digest perfectly, either. Fashion a diet with close to 80% of the calories from carbohydrate, 10% from protein and 10% from fat. Deriving more than 10% of your calories from fat and/or 10% from protein will invariably exceed your digestive limitations, resulting in toxicosis and disease.

Food Combining: Follow food combining guidelines to a “t.”

Eat fruit only on an empty stomach, alone or with leafy greens, celery and/or cucumber. Eat melons alone. Eat citrus fruits at least one-half hour before non-acidic sweet fruits. Starchy foods (squash, potatoes, grains and old carrots) combine well with all vegetables and bell peppers; they do not combine well with tomatoes or other acidic or sweet fruits, nuts, seeds and avocados. Fatty, high-protein foods (nuts, seeds and avocados) combine well only with non-starchy vegetables (greens and celery), cucumbers and minimal amounts of acidic fruits including tomatoes; they do not combine well with starchy or non-acidic sweet foods.

Meal Sequencing: The best sequencing is fruit-and-greens meals during the day, then, optionally, a glass of raw vegetable juice followed at least one-half hour later by a dinner of vegetables with one fatty food, i.e., avocado, nuts or seeds. Note: it is not necessary and, in many cases, unhealthful to eat a fatty food every day. Furthermore, it is OK to have a dinner of simply more fruit and greens.

Meal Spacing: It is most beneficial to space meals as long as is comfortably possible. Assuming you are not so fatigued that you need to take a nap to restore your energy, a slightly uncomfortable feeling in the back of the throat and a dip in your physical and/or mental energies are the signs that it is time to eat again. Sweet, juicy foods, eaten in sufficient quantity, will quell hunger, rehydrate you and supply your caloric fuel needs. To put it simply, eat sufficient quantities of nutritious, simple carbohydrate-rich, whole foods–primarily fruit–to keep your blood sugar and hydration at a level which assures sustained physical and mental performance.

Daytime Diet: Eat one or two types of juicy, sweet fruits for breakfast, or have a glass of fresh juice made of fruit and celery and/or greens, or a smoothie made of the same. Follow that with different types of fruits for each of the following one to three meals, eaten with or without greens, celery and/or cucumber, taking them in sufficient quantity for satiation and sustained energy.

Dinner Diet: If desired, drink raw vegetable juice, then at least one-half hour later follow it with a simple salad of vegetables and fruit-vegetables such as tomato and bell pepper. If you include carrot in your vegetable juice, avoid having tomato with your dinner. If you desire a fatty food, have one to two ounces of nuts or seeds, or two to four ounces of avocado. The fatty foods can be salad additions in whole or blended dressing forms. Caution: it is generally imperative to avoid fatty foods if you are fatigued and/or experiencing illness. If you prefer a meal of more fruit and greens instead of vegetable juice and salads, that is generally a healthful choice–follow and trust your senses when they call for raw, delicious foods!

Chew Chew Chew Your Food Well

This greatly enhances digestion!

Breathe Fully While Eating

You need plentiful oxygen to digest food!

Space Out Your Meals

Allow your body to digest the food and utilize the nutrients. Avoid recreational eating.

Avoid Food Within 2 Hours of Bedtime

Food cannot digest properly during sleep. Late night eating leads to toxemia, as evidenced by morning sickness.

Don’t Make Food an Infatuation

“Eating can be dangerous,” said my fruitarian health writer friend Morris Krok. He meant that you can ruin your body by eating when there is no need for food and by overeating. Too much food soils your body and leads to illness, even if it’s raw food! Eat simply and eat less to create and keep a pure body!

You Can Do It!

These guidelines may seem tedious in the beginning, but within a week or two they become easy and “first nature.” Listening deeply to the body’s signals and eating simple, whole-food meals are the keys. As we experience digestive ease and the great revitalizing benefits, this way of eating becomes simple and most pleasurable. So, dig in! Digestive maladies will soon become a thing of the past. You’ll love eating, your tummy will love you and vibrant health will blossom forth!
