     What is the Kemetic Diet? The Kemetic Diet is a program of conscious living that is based on the teachings and lifestyle of the Ancient Africans who lived in Kamit, the land today is referred to as Ancient Egypt. The ancient Kamitans were the healthiest people in the ancient world and their medical knowledge was renowned in ancient times. It is no wonder that in modern times medical doctors are failing to cope with the alarming rates of disease in modern society since they do not take into account the higher wisdom of the mind and soul when trying to heal the body only. Now there is growing interest in "alternative health approaches." But it is quite ironic to notice that what many people are now calling by names like "dietetics," "naturopathy," reflexology," "hypertherapy," "colonics," "detoxification," "mind-body healing" and more, were actually originated and practiced in Ancient Africa by the Swnus or doctors of ancient Kamit.

History Lesson: A brief history of Medicine:

2000 B.C.E. Here, take this root.
1000 A.C.E. That root is for a heathen. Here, say this prayer.
1850 A.C.E. That prayer is superstition. Here, drink this potion.
1940 A.C.E. That potion is snake oil. Here, swallow this pill.
1985 A.C.E. That pill is ineffective. Here take this antibiotic.
2000 A.C.E. That antibiotic is artificial. Here, eat this root.

     The book Kemetic Diet chronicles, outlines and explains the Kemetic system of health and the deeper causes of disease which begins in the soul and in the mind first so that anyone may adopt the path of health and self healing. This is why healers must take into account the spiritual and intellectual aspects of disease. The concepts now being discovered by western culture are not new but only recently rediscovered by modern culture which had turned away from natural health in favor of science and drugs. The ancient recognized early that human beings are not machines but a complex of body mind and soul. So they devised certain regulations that promote health and bring the entire personality into balance when it becomes diseased. The art of the Kemetic Diet is also being taught to those who would like to adopt it for themselves and to those who would lie to teach it by becoming Teachers of the Kemetic Diet Program or Pastoral Health Counselors of the Kemetic Diet.

     The Kemetic Diet program guides an individual to everything from what foods to eat every day to how to pursue mental sanity ad peace and how to attain spiritual enlightenment, the ultimate food for the soul.

     The following is a summary of the essential principles of the Kemetic Diet Health System, based on the Ancient Egyptian teachings of Health. These were extracted from the book The Kemetic Diet, Food for Body, Mind and Soul by Dr. Muata Ashby, which is a study of (Ancient African) practices and writings in the area of preventative health and healing, engendered by the first medical doctors in history…the Sunus or Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian) physicians.

Health For Body, Mind and Soul

     The main principles of the Kemetic Diet encompass the understanding that the personality is a complex which includes, but is not limited to the physical constitution. As such a human being requires more than just physical nourishment in order to survive and thrive as a healthy person. Therefore, a protocol has been enjoined to promote the purity of the body, mind and soul. There is a proper type of food for the body, a proper type of food for the mind and a proper type of food for the soul. If any of these foods are missing a human being will be malnourished and the personality will develop spiritual, mental or physical ailments.

Kemetic Principles of Disease and Health: Ukhedu, Mettu and Swadj
     The Ancient Egyptian concept of physical disease holds that it is due to indigestion. That is, some impurity has been digested that compromises the digestive system which in turn deposits impurities into the Mettu or vascular systems. This has the effect of weakening the immune systems. This process is called Ukhedu. The way to restore health is by Swadj or cleansing the mettu, to make it green again. This greening is accomplished by means of a vegetarian diet. However, there are obstructions for the mind and soul and a human being is not considered healthy until all the "bodies" (physical, mental and causal) are restored to their original state. The cleaning of the mind and soul requires a different kind of greening. All of this process leads to Ankh, Udja, Seneb or Life, Vitality and Health.


The Kemetic Diet Guidelines

In "The Kemetic Diet: Food for Body, Mind and Soul, A Holistic Health Guide Based on Ancient Egyptian Medical Teachings," Muata Ashby outlined the modern precepts followers of Kemetics use for their diets. According to Ashby, one of the basic concepts that guided the ancient Egyptians was their belief that good health was more than an absence of disease symptoms, but rather something that could be promoted by treating food as a sacred spiritual connection to the gods and to their ancestors. To keep this connection intact and to prevent the development of diseases, followers of Kemet focus on eating staple foods in a set manner and avoiding other foods and eating habits.

Staple Foods

The Kemetic Diet dictates that an individual's staple foods -- the ones they eat on a daily basis -- should be vegetables and starches. The ideal starches are grains such as millet, corn, wheat or rice; beans or legumes such as lentils; and root vegetables like potatoes or yams. One of these starches, plainly cooked, should be part of every single meal, and should be accompanied by vegetables. According to Kemetic beliefs, vegetables must be eaten with starches in order for the starches to be digested properly. Fresh spices can be used as a seasoning. A typical staple food meal on the Kemetic Diet would include a vegetable-based sauce or broth flavored with spices and served on a cooked starch.

Occasional Foods

In the Kemetic Diet tradition, foods considered acceptable for occasional consumption are items that followers believe are beneficial in very small amounts but that strain the digestive system if eaten in large quantities. These foods include meat and any form of animal product such as dairy products and eggs; nuts; and fruit. Fish may be eaten more often than meat, but should still be kept as an occasional meal item. Followers of Kemet believe in consuming these foods more for medicinal purposes; for instance, fruit -- especially citrus fruit -- should be eaten if you are ill, and meat when a woman is pregnant. At no time, however, should these foods become regularly eaten staples.

Foods and Habits to Avoid

Followers of the Kemetic Diet believe that consuming processed foods, sugar, salt and any vitamin or mineral supplements leads to health problems and should be eliminated from the diet completely. Additionally, they contend that you should only eat when you are hungry, ideally two meals a day with one small meal in the morning and a larger meal in the evening, focusing on eating only a small variety of foods since, according to Kemetic followers, eating many different types of foods puts unnecessary strain on the digestive system
