The Budwig Diet: A Protocol that can cure Cancer

There are several alternative treatments for cancer, which have proven to be effective. One of them is the Budwig diet protocol. Dr Johanna Budwig was a maverick doctor who used a simple mixture of quark and flaxseed oil as a potent, holistic cancer treatment. To her colleagues, this was seen as a ridiculously naive way of treating something as serious and potentially lethal as cancer.

Because they refused to look at it, or accept her scientific reasoning for why these simple foods could have such a potent healing effect in cancer, she was scoffed at and denigrated for decades. Yet basic, sound science exists to back up her holistic cancer treatment approach, sometimes called the Dr Johanna Budwig cancer diet.

How The Budwig Diet Works?


Dr Budwig realized that by simply giving to cancer patients some flaxseed oil was not going to solve the problem of electron deficiency in their abnormally functioning cells. Oils are not water-soluble – unless you do something to them to alter this inherent property. Johanna Budwig realized that if you mix an oil like flaxseed oil, with a sulfurated protein source such as quark, cottage cheese or yogurt, then that oil becomes more water soluble.

In this more water-soluble format, the electron-rich essential fatty acids, provided by the flaxseed oil, are better assimilated, not only through the digestive system, but into the very structure of cell walls and membranes too. Over time, these core nuts-and-bolts fatty acids, constituting the cell walls and membranes in each and every cell of a cancer patient's body – including cancerous cells – start to be replaced by the more electron rich, omega 3 fatty acids. As this replacement occurs, the electrical potential of such cells slowly return to normal.

The exciting point, however, is that the function and behavior of a person's damaged cells normalizes as its electrical nature stabilizes. Instead of remaining an out-of-control cell, cancer patients find that their malignant cells can start to return back to normal.

The Transition diet in the Budwig Protocol


Dr. Budwig put a great emphasis on the transitional phase from a patient’s normal diet into the Budwig Diet. A patient, who drinks lots of coffee, must scale down on the coffee to avoid headaches and withdrawal symptoms. The same applies to sugars and carbohydrates in the form of processed foods.

Dr. Budwig recommended eating “soft” food during the transitional period which can vary from days to weeks. She pointed out the importance of chewing of the food to activate digestive enzymes that help to digest the food.

One should include at least one meal with flaxseed oil every day and increase the dose slowly. If you experience side effects (detoxication), go one step back and maintain the previous amount until symptoms have improved or disappeared.

Dr. Budwig writes in her books that even very ill patients tolerated the transition diet. She followed the principle: The sicker the patient, the faster it is important to consume the flaxseed oil. For patients with cancer of the liver, pancreas, stomach or gall bladder, she recommended a transition of just a few days.

To accustom the body to the flaxseed oil you can have a transition day and grind 250 grams of flaxseed, make fresh juice from fruit or vegetables and mix in the fresh ground flaxseed. This is also a tip for people who feel tired and need to recharge during the day. Dr. Budwig recommended especially juices from carrot, beet, celery and apple.

 

For very ill patients Dr. Budwig had three different proposals for transitional diet:



  • Porridge with fresh ground flaxseed every hour. In the “Oil Protein Diet Cookbook” Dr. Budwig provides a variety of recipes on a thin porridge with flaxseed which she recommends for infants and very sick people.

  • Oats Soup is easily digestible food for those who are sick, with freshly ground flaxseed 3 times daily.

  • Add 250g freshly ground organic flaxseed into juice for drinking throughout the day. Papaya or fresh pineapple juice is recommended and very important because these contain a lot of enzymes.


For all three variants of the transition diet, the following is additional:



  • Hot drinks at least three times a day, such as green tea or herbal tea.

  • Sweetening only with natural honey.

  • After 1-3 days transition most patients are ready to follow the entire diet.


The Budwig Diet Protocol


Making the Budwig mixture is remarkably easy to do, once you have some basic kitchen implements to help you mix the various ingredients.

Ingredients:

The basic proportions are 3 dessertspoons (about 55 ml) of cold-pressed, organic flaxseed oil, (which has always been cold-stored in a fridge) to 6 dessertspoons of quark or cottage cheese.

Place the desired amounts of both ingredients in a small jar or glass bowl, and mix thoroughly with the hand-held blender for about a minute. If the mixture is too thick – especially when using quark – then you can add a small amount of milk to dilute the mixture. Goat’s milk would be best.

If you have ended up using too much flax oil for the amount of dairy product chosen, then you will find that, upon standing, the oil will separate out from the Budwig mixture. Simply use less oil next time, or add some more quark or cottage cheese to the present mix in which this separation is occurring.

And that's it! No wonder her colleagues thought she was mad to suggest that something as simple as this could be a major factor in reversing cancer.

 

Additional Ingredients


Firstly, you can add quite an array of other nutritious things to the Budwig diet, such as a range of fruits or nuts, even finely shredded, desiccated, organic coconut.

You could also add certain spices such as cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, aniseed, caraway, or cardamom, and you can add about 1 teaspoon of raw, unprocessed honey to the proportions given above.

Note: the best honey is one that crystallizes. If, after standing for some months, honey won't crystallize, it inevitably means it has been heat-extracted, causing much of the nutritional value – especially its enzymes – to be destroyed. In that case you have nothing better than a form of sugar candy, with all the attendant immune suppressive effects of processed sugar.


However, if you do wish to add other things to the Budwig mixture, then this must always be done after the initial mixing of the flaxseed oil with whatever dairy product you choose to use – i.e. quark, cottage cheese or yogurt.

 

Tools Needed


An electric coffee grinder to grind the whole brown flaxseed. Flaxseed is an important part of the diet and freshly ground flaxseed is important because ground flaxseed can become rancid after 15 to 20 minutes.

 

A hand held blender to mix and bind flaxseed oil and low-fat quark together so that they become a creamy mixture that makes the oil water soluble. This allows your body to absorb the oil better. It is important to use a powerful electric mixer or blender.

 

A vegetable and fruit juicer. Any type is OK but try to have one with masticator or slow processing, as the heat generated with the high potency juicers can destroy the fruits and veggies nutrition.

How to consume The Budwig mixture?


The above mixture of the Budwig diet, made from 3 dessertspoons of flaxseed oil and 6 dessertspoons of quark could be taken once to twice daily, depending on the severity of your health issue. If you were to take this amount twice daily, that would require quite a lot of oil, and for some people this could cause nausea or other digestive upsets, especially if they have coexisting gallbladder or liver problems, or pancreatic or liver cancer.

 

How Long Can the Budwig mixture Be Stored?


The best choice is to consume the Budwig mixture as soon as you have made it. Flax oil is remarkably prone to oxidation - (as happens when oxygen and iron combine to form rust). Hence, the longer you store the finished product - especially after it has been well and truly belted around with oxygen in the blending process - the more likely it is that the flaxseed oil will go rancid. A rancid oil is a potent source of free radicals – not something a cancer patient needs!

So, as you can see, only two simple ingredients can make the best cancer fighting foods and is very easy to make! But, if you want to know a little more, here is a video about the Budwig diet protocol. Also, this video show you some recipes, so, you can do it at home. Enjoy!
