In slight contrast, Benedict Lust, who was Ehret's American publisher prior to Fred Hirsch, maintained that Ehret was "hastily making his way to the railroad station to board the train for his home in the Los Angeles suburbs." However, Ehret denounced coffee, as well as alcohol and tobacco, as "poisons" in his writings, even though in his visit to Egypt, he said people who smoked and drank coffee heavily, yet ate a light vegetarian diet, were not suffering the illnesses of western Europeans.
The war prevented him returning to Germany so he settled in Mount Washington, where he prepared his manuscripts and diplomas in his cultivated eating gardens.Benedict Lust distributed the books of Ehret, Kneipp, Kuhne, Just, and Engelhardt in the United States including "Kranke Menschen" which was a best-seller.
