The Definitive Guide to Cannabis Oil Treatment for Cancer (Infographic)

The Cannabis Oil Treatment for cancer is one of the most effective Alternative Treatments there are. However, it is very hard for people to access it freely and get accurate information due to marijuana’s condition as an illegal drug in many countries and states of the U.S.

Furthermore, it is necessary to research in depth this impressive plant, but the illegal condition of it makes it very difficult for the scientific community to do so.

How Cannabinoids works.

Marihuana is a very powerful plant which contains cannabinoids. Humans have cannabinoid receptors all over our bodies, which form a system by themselves. When this system is not in balance, the results are illness and physical complications.

The Cannabinoids found in Marijuana, mimic the body’s natural endocannabinoids, providing relief to those symptoms.

The two main cannabinoids in Marijuana are CBD and THC

 

Medical Benefits of CBD and THC

THC – Tetrahydrocannabinol

THC is the principal ingredient in cannabis, and the responsible for the psychoactive properties of the plant. It’s basically with what you get “high” with. Besides that, studies suggest that THC is effective for:

  • Cancer treatment and as aid for reducing the symptoms coming from conventional treatments
  • PTSD
  • Stimulates appetite for HIV/AIDS patients
  • Help reducing ill people’s pain
  • Inflammation and insomnia
  • Reduces spasms and spasticity in patients with Multiple Sclerosis

CBD – Cannabidiol

This is the second cannabinoid with more scientific research. Besides helping in balancing the “high” coming from the THC, it’s also famous to help with:

  • Epilepsy.
  • Genetics brain disorders
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Crohn’s disease.
  • Relief from anxiety, inflammation, psychosis, spasms, seizures and other conditions without the feeling of dysphoria or lethargy.

As Aquarius Cannabis explains “CBD vs. THC levels in marijuana influence the way the bud makes you feel.

First of all, strains that have high levels of THC and low levels of CBD will give you a strong “high” and minimal pain relief or anti-inflammatory properties.

There are also with high levels of both THC and CBD are best suited for serious medical conditions as these strains can provide both psychoactive highs to ease the mind and anxiety, as well as severe pain relief and anti-inflammation.

Finally, there are strains that are low in THC and high in CBD have minimal “high” effects; in fact you would probably barely feel as if you had consumed cannabis. The CBD, however, would be a great pain reliever, cramp-reducer, and anti-inflammatory.

Some people even report they feel more focused, less stressed, and experience less ‘mental chatter’ when consuming CBD-rich cannabis, so they hit a high CBD strain like AC/DC or Cannatonic before writing, reading, or tackling the long overdue email inbox.”

 

Cannabis can kill cancer cells

There are four ways cannabis (and most efficiently cannabis oil treatment) works killing cancer cells

[nbsp]

Anti-proliferative:

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of the Complutense University in Madrid, proved that THC, inhibit the growth of new human breast cancer cells.

In addition, other studies show (here and here), that CBD is a potent inhibitor of both cancer growth and spread of various types of cancer including: Breast, skin, pancreatic, bone, lung, colon, glioma, endocrine tumors and leukaemia/lymphoma and others.

[nbsp]

Anti-Metastatic:

Metastatic cancer (cancer that have spread from one place in the body to another), are among the most difficult to treat. Research suggests that cannabis prevents the cancer cells from spreading and adhering to other healthy cells.

[nbsp]

Anti-Angiogenic:

There are several studies that show (like these – 12) that in addition to the above-described anti cancer effects, cannabis oil treatment has been shown to normalize tumor vasculature. As a result, the tumor is not able to continue creating new blood vessels to steal oxygen and nutrients from other healthy cells of the body. Therefore, this cut the tumor’s food supply and encourages death by starvation.

[nbsp]

Pro-apoptotic:

In a healthy person, cells that are damaged or aged can undergo a process of programmed cell death (apoptosis). But, for some reason yet unknown to science*, cancer cells don’t respond to signals that would otherwise cause them to self-destruct. Nevertheless scientists found that cannabinoids are very effective in inducing cancer cells apoptosis in both in vitro and in vivo tests.

* Researchers at the University of Western Ontario have identified the protein (RanBPM) that regulates apoptosis, which is a huge first step to understand the process.

 

Types of Cancer that Cannabis Oil can treatThis is not the complete list, but the most common types of cancer that have being cured with cannabis oil treatment.

Cancer Symptoms Cannabis Oil can treatThe use of Cannabis Oil Therapy goes beyond treating cancer. It is also extremely effective in alleviating cancer-related symptoms. Hence, the why so many cancer patients, especially those undergoing chemo, turn into medical cannabis (either as oil, edibles, raw or smoked/vaporized) to relieve themselves from them.

2 of the most critical symptoms cannabis can alleviate in a cancer patient are pain and nausea.

[nbsp]

Pain

If you ask anyone who has ever smoked cannabis and had pain, any kind of pain, cancer related or non-related, this is definitely one of the things they would tell you: “It’s gone” or “It went down very much”.

Marijuana is very well known for its pain killer properties. But, is there any scientific research that supports what people in the streets are saying?

A selective review of medical cannabis in cancer pain management was published in Aug, 2017 by the University of Toronto, where they presented “a selection of representative clinical studies, from small pilot studies conducted in 1975, to double-blind placebo-controlled trials conducted in 2014 that evaluated the efficacy of cannabinoid-based therapies containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) for reducing cancer-associated pain”

Their conclusion goes as follows: “There is evidence suggesting that medical cannabis reduces chronic or neu-ropathic pain in advanced cancer patients. However, the results of many studies lacked statistical power, in some cases due to limited number of study subjects.

Therefore, there is a need for the conduct of further double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials with large sample sizes in order to establish the optimal dosage and efficacy of different cannabis-based therapies.”

[nbsp]

Nausea and vomiting

Back in 75 the New England Journal of Medicine published a study of the antiemetic (anti-nausea) effects of cannabis in patients undergoing chemotherapy. Here’s an extract of that study:

“No patient vomited while experiencing a subjective ‘high.’ Oral tetrahydrocannabinol has antiemetic properties and is significantly better than a placebo in reducing vomiting caused by chemotherapeutic agents.”

In a 2005 interview with newsweek, Dr. Donald Abrams, chief of hematology-oncology at San Francisco General Hospital and a professor of clinical medicine at the University of California in San Francisco, said: “A day doesn’t go by where I don’t see a cancer patient who has nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, pain, depression and insomnia.”… “Marijuana is the only anti-nausea medicine that increases appetite.”

[nbsp]

Improves Overall Quality of Life

Cannabis multipurpose quoteLoss of appetite is just another of the symptoms cannabis can alleviate in a cancer patient. Poor Sleep and depression are also part of the big list of these symptoms.

It helps patients sleep and elevates their mood—no easy feat when someone is facing a life-threatening illness. As Dr. Abrams says “I could write six different prescriptions, all of which may interact with each other or the chemotherapy that the patient has been prescribed. Or I could just recommend trying one medicine.”

Low doses of THC have also been found to boost serotonin levels, giving it an antidepressant effect.

For an in depth list of ways cannabis can benefit cancer patients read this article.

 

Rick Simpson Cannabis most medicinal plant
Rick Simpson is without a doubt the man who put the idea of using Cannabis oil Treatment for Cancer, back on the table.

He became worldwide known after the documentary “Run from the Cure: The Rick Simpson Story” came to life in 2008.

After a serious head injury in 1997, Rick Simpson sought relief from his medical condition through the use of medicinal cannabis oil.

In 2003 Rick was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma skin cancer. He had 3 spots of cancer on his body, 2 on his face and 1 on his neck.

 

Rick’s decision on how to handle this diagnosis would be world changing.

After not having much luck with surgery Rick decided to try something different. He remembered a radio headline he heard almost 30 years earlier.  The radio headline had stated that the University of Virginia had found the cannabinoid in cannabis THC could kill cancer in mice.  He figured that if it kills cancer in mice it would kill his cancer too.

Rick’s decision was to go for the cannabis oil treatment. So, he applied his cannabis oil to some bandages and put them on the skin cancer.  After 4 days of waiting he decided it was time to see if anything had happened under the bandages.  To Rick’s surprise the cancer was gone.  

His cannabis oil had cured his cancer.

After 4 days of waiting he decided it was time to see if anything had happened... his cannabis oil had cured his cancer Click To Tweet

When Rick re-discovered that the cannabis oil (with its high concentration of T.H.C.) cured cancers and other illnesses, he tried to share it with as many people as he could free of charge, curing and controlling literally hundreds of people’s illnesses…

But, when the story went public, the long arm of the law snatched the medicine – leaving potentially thousands of people without their cancer treatments – and leaving Rick with unconstitutional charges of possessing and trafficking marijuana!

It really is a documentary you must watch.

Here’s the documentary:

Make sure you also grab your copies of Rick’s Books, they are great resources:

The Rick Simpson Story

Rick Simpson Oil – Nature’s Answer for Cancer

 

Cannabis oil How to

There are many recipes out there to make cannabis oil, being Rick Simpson Cannabis Oil Recipe without a doubt the most famous one.

Rick Simpson oil is a Cannabis oil extract that you can make by soaking cannabis plant material in a solvent such as ethanol or isopropyl alcohol and then evaporating the solvent to leave only the pure cannabis oil behind. Typically, this oil is then put into small syringes in the fridge for storage and later medicinal use.

Full recipe here: How to make Rick Simpson’s Cannabis Oil

In addition, there is also a company called Endoca that sells CBD Extract, which has a foundation with the same name, which is bringing a lot of good information about cannabis as a medicine to the public for free.

They claim to have a more refined and safer procedure that the one Rick uses in his recipe.

Here is a video with the procedure:

Full recipe here: How to make Endoca’s Cannabis Oil

[nbsp]

According to cureyourcancer.org: “For most people it takes about 60 grams (or about 60ml) of cannabis oil to kill most cancers. For the average person it will take about 90 days to ingest the full 60 gram treatment of cannabis oil. It is important to remember that the 60 gram/ml 90 day treatment protocol is just a recommendation and starting point.  It can take some people a longer time to finish their treatment.”

[nbsp]

Common Cannabis Oil treatment protocol

  • First week: 3 doses of cannabis oil per day of about the size of half grain of white rice.
  • After the first week: Double the dose every four days until you get to 1 ml/1 gr. It can take up to 30-35 days to get there. Once there the dosage should remain the same until you heal the cancer.
  • After the cancer has gone: Continue the treatment for at least 2 more weeks.
  • To keep the good health: You can take 1 gr a month

It might be possible that the cannabis oil get into your bloodstream better through suppositories than orally taking the oil.

Organic cocoa butter makes an excellent medium for making the suppositories.

Add 1-2 gr of the oil per 100 gr of cocoa butter as a starting point. After that, you will increase the dose working towards having the same dose as taken orally.

What you need:

Instructions:

  • Slowly melt the cocoa butter using the candle warmer.
  • Once the butter is completely melted add the oil and stir until the oil is evenly mixed throughout.
  • Pour the mixture into the suppository molds.
  • Let them cool at room temperature.

Getting the oil as close as possible to the cancer is a good idea. Hence, their use are a great idea for cancers in the lower parts of the body (but not only for those).

[nbsp]

Cannabis Oil Treatment for Skin Cancer:

  • You need an ounce of high quality Cannabis to make about 3-4gr of oil to treat skin cancer.
  • Apply the oil directly in the affected area and cover it with a clean bandage.
  • Re-apply oil and change bandage every 1 or 2 days
  • Continue until cancer is gone and two more weeks beyond that, to ensure killing all the cancer cells.

In most skin cancer cases, the cancer disappears in less than three weeks. In extreme cases it could take longer. Just continue the treatment until the cancer is gone disappears. In conclusion, the speed of healing will depend on your own rate of healing and how deep the cancer is.

An example of a Basal Cell Carcinoma being cured in only 35 days using Cannabis Oil Treatment:

[nbsp]

No matter which cancer treatment you choose to follow, this is a must in your journey. Your habits and diet must be in accordance with an attitude of healing, so you must acquire (if you don’t have them already) very healthy ones.

First of all, it’s to try to get your body into the normal alkaline PH levels every human being should have as cancer develops ONLY in acidic and poorly oxygenated environments.

[nbsp]

Some recommendations to achieve this are:

  • If smoking, QUIT! Quite possible you already know this anyways.
  • Incorporate as many dark green leafs to your diet as you can. They are rich in chlorophyll, which it is like drinking liquid oxygen.
  • Breathing exercises: We have forgotten how to properly breathe, so this is a good thing to do. Try doing the following exercises as many times as you can during the day, especially in the morning when you wake up, to give to your body a boost of very well needed oxygen and fuel.

[nbsp]

There have been people who have experienced withdrawal symptoms when the original cannabis oil treatment is finished.

They didn’t take a maintenance dose of oil nor did they ingest cannabis in any other fashion, such as vaporizing.

These people had symptoms like:

Extreme anxiety, panic attacks, repetitive negative thoughts, inability to focus, no motivation, racing mind, insomnia, loss of appetite, sweats, lack of sex drive.

The patients manifested symptoms that in some cases mimicked depression.

These symptoms were gone within 10-14 days. Not all patients experience these side effects after they finish the cannabis oil treatment.

 

  • They support the need for more scientific research on cannabinoids for cancer patients.
  • Recognize the need for better and more effective therapies that can overcome the side effects of cancer and its treatment.
  • In addition, the Society also believes that the classification of marijuana as a Schedule I controlled substance by the DEA imposes numerous conditions on researchers and deters scientific study of cannabinoids.
  • Federal officials should examine options consistent with federal law for enabling more scientific study on marijuana.
  • Medical decisions about pain and symptom management should be made between the patient and his or her doctor. Furthermore, the doctors should balance the evidence of benefit and harm to the patient, the patient’s preferences and values, and any laws and regulations that may apply.
  • The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), the Society’s advocacy affiliate, has not taken a position on legalization of marijuana for medical purposes because of the need for more scientific research on marijuana’s potential benefits and harms.
  • However, ACS CAN opposes the smoking or vaping of marijuana and other cannabinoids in public places because the carcinogens in marijuana smoke pose numerous health hazards to the patient and others in the patient’s presence.

Cannabis Oil Treatment Safety

Fatally overdosing on marijuana in its most commonly ingested forms is seemingly impossible.

In 1988, a DEA judge argued in favor of rescheduling marijuana in part because of its low harm profile. In his ruling, he wrote that a user would have to ingest somewhere between 20,000 to 40,000 times the amount of THC contained in a single joint to approach lethal toxicity.

“A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana within about fifteen minutes to induce a lethal response,” wrote Judge Francis Young.

Another recent study suggests a lethal dose of marijuana may actually be even higher.

To be at risk of fatal poisoning, a user would have to orally ingest more than half a gram of pure THC per kilogram of body mass, according to a 2014 analysis of the compound.

Therefore, at 88 kg, the average American man would have to down more than an ounce and a half of 100% Pure THC extract. That’s almost certainly not possible.

“That’s far more than most people will consume throughout their entire lifetime,” said Jahan Marcu, chief science officer at  Americans for Safe Access, an organization that advocates for cannabis as medicine.

 

Cannabis oil use may cause a decrease in concentration, memory, and the ability to learn and think. It is not safe to mix cannabis oil with other medications — such as antidepressants, anxiety medications, pain relievers, seizure medications and muscle relaxers — because it may cause drowsiness and fatigue.

Do not use cannabis oil, or any cannabis product, if you are pregnant, could become pregnant or are breastfeeding. You should play safe as there are very split conclusions around this topic. After all, it is your child’s and your quality of life on the line.

There are many strains of cannabis, and they are not all equal. Try to make the oil yourself with organic plant material grown by you or a reputable grower. Or if you buy it, make sure to purchase it through a reputable and lab-tested company.

Finally, go through the legal and safe means of obtaining it in order to ensure the health benefits and limit the side effects of the Cannabis Oil Treatment.

9 TYPES OF CANCER THAT CAN BE KILLED BY CANNABIS

Cannabis, also known as marijuana, is a plant grown in many parts of the world, and has been used for medicinal purposes dating back to ancient times. It produces a resin containing compounds called cannabinoids.

[click-to-summary_shortcode][/click-to-summary_shortcode]

These Cannabinoids are active chemicals in Cannabis that cause drug like effects throughout the body, including the central nervous system and the immune system. Some of these cannabinoids are psychoactive and act on the brain by changing mood or consciousness. Cannabinoids can be taken by mouth, inhaled, or sprayed under the tongue.

The Battle Between Cannabis and The FDA

In the United States, federal and state laws regarding the medical use of cannabis and cannabinoids are in conflict and have led to confusion among patients, caregivers, and healthcare providers. Currently, cannabis is legal for medical purposes in 50% of the states, and another seventeen states allow products that are high in cannabidiol (CBD) and low in THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) for medical use.

On the FDA’S website Questions and Answer about Marijuana, they said that cannabis has not be approved, because according to them, there’s not enough research that prove that can be safe or effective for the treatment of any disease or condition. Also, The FDA only supports researchers who conduct adequate and well-controlled clinical trials which may lead to the development of safe and effective marijuana products to treat medical conditions.

However, there is actually a lot of scientific research on cannabis and its effectiveness in curing not only cancer but many other conditions. So, the question remains the same: Why does the FDA not approve the use of medical cannabis? Perhaps the answer to that question is because it is something organic and natural that can not give it to them and Big Pharma, the income that they want.

Types of Cancer That Can Be Killed by Cannabis

There is no doubt that cannabinoids are interesting biological molecules. Hundreds of scientists around the world are investigating their potential in cancer and other diseases, brought together under the blanket organization The International Cannabinoid Research Society.

Researchers first looked at the anticancer properties of cannabinoids back in the 1970s, and many hundreds of scientific papers looking at cannabinoids and cancer have been published since then. Let’s take a closer look at the evidence!

#1. Brain Cancer

Cannabinoids decrease tumor progression by at least 2 mechanisms: apoptotic death (tumor cells) and the inhibition of tumor angiogenesis. A study published in the British Journal of Cancer, conducted by the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Complutense University in Madrid, determined that THC and other cannabinoids inhibit tumor growth. THC was found to decrease tumour cells in two out of the nine patients, and the delivery was safe and was achieved with zero psychoactive effects.

Also, according to a 2014 study conducted by oncologist Wai Lu at St. George’s University of London, cannabinoids like THC and CBD are highly efficient at destroying glioma cells. During a clinical study, Lu found that CBD and THC alone were capable of killing roughly half of the glioma cells present in affected mice. When these cannabinoids were used in conjunction with radiotherapy, however, the treatment caused the tumors in several of the mice to stop growing entirely.


Additionally, Lu found that when THC and CBD were used together to treat tumors, researchers could use less of each compound and still achieve the same effects. This is important because THC is psychoactive and can cause unwanted psychoactive side effects for people receiving treatment. Fortunately, when combined with CBD, THC can be used in smaller doses and patients receiving treatment can reap the medical benefits of the compound without any of the “high” feelings traditionally associated with it.

Cannabis can protect the brain from neurodegeneration

A study published in The Journal of Neuroscience, examined the biochemical events in both acute neuronal damage and in slowly progressive, neurodegenerative diseases. They conducted a magnetic resonance imaging study that looked at THC (the main active compound in marijuana) and found that it reduced neuronal injury in rats. The results of this study provide evidence that the cannabinoid system can serve to protect the brain against neurodegeneration.

#2- Breast Cancer

As remarkable as it may seem, there is reliable and growing for-real evidence suggesting that cannabis can slow the growth of tumors by hindering their ability to hijack blood vessels for their own nefarious purposes (angiogenesis), hamper the migration of cancer cells throughout the body (metastasis), and actually hasten the death (autophagy and apoptosis) of these otherwise uncontrollably proliferating rogue cells. In other words, cannabis really does fight cancer.

Photo credit: Pinterest

A study published in the US National Library of Medicine, conducted by the California Pacific Medical Centre, determined that cannabidiol (CBD) inhibits human breast cancer cell proliferation and invasion. They also demonstrated that CBD significantly reduces tumour mass. Another study published in the journal Molecular Cancer showed that THC reduced tumour growth and tumour numbers. They determined that cannabinoids inhibit cancer cell proliferation, induce cancer cell apoptosis, and impair tumour angiogenesis (all good things). This study provides strong evidence for the use of cannabinoid-based therapies to manage breast cancer.

#3- Lung Cancer

While smoking marijuana is never good for the lungs, the active ingredient in marijuana may help fight lung cancer. A study published in the journal Oncogene by Harvard Medical School’s Experimental Medicine Department determined that THC inhibits epithelial growth factor induced lung cancer cell migration and more. They go on to state that THC and other cannabinoids should be explored as novel therapeutic molecules in controlling the growth and metastasis of certain lung cancers.

Photo credit: Pinterest

Also, a study published in the US National Library of Medicine by the Institute of Toxicology and Pharmacology in Germany determined that cannabinoids inhibit cancer cell invasion. Effects were confirmed in primary tumour cells from a lung cancer patient.  Overall, data indicated that cannabinoids decrease cancer cell invasiveness.

#4- Prostate Cancer

The use of medical marijuana for prostate cancer is causing more men to look into this controversial treatment. One of the most common medical uses of marijuana is for cancer symptoms and the side effects of treatment such as chemotherapy, but studies on people who have used the drug are proving that marijuana may also have some anti-tumor effects.

Photo credit: Pinterest

A study in Italy analyzed the effect of cannabidiol (CBD) on prostate cancer. These chemicals are not related to THC, the component that makes one “high” with marijuana. The researchers found that CBD was effective in killing prostate carcinoma. It also prevented its growth and spread. They also found that the chemicals in cannabis enhance each other’s cancer-killing properties.

Also, in 2009, a team of researchers from the University of Alcalá in Spain published a study in the British Journal of Cancer that adds merit to the thought. It suggests that cannabinoid treatments could inhibit prostate cancer cell growth through activation of the CB2 receptors. All in all, the study involved three human prostate cancer cell lines – PC-3, DU-145, and LNCaP. Results show that a chemical similar to anandamide (the body’s natural version of THC) inhibited PC-3 cell growth. They experienced the same results with JWH-015, a synthetic CB2 receptor agonist.

#5- Blood Cancer

Blood cancers affect the production and function of your blood cells. Most of these cancers start in your bone marrow where blood is produced. Stem cells in your bone marrow mature and develop into three types of blood cells: red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets. In most blood cancers, the normal blood cell development process is interrupted by uncontrolled growth of an abnormal type of blood cell. These abnormal blood cells, or cancerous cells, prevent your blood from performing many of its functions, like fighting off infections or preventing serious bleeding.

Common treatments are chemotherapy, radiotherapy and, in some cases, a stem cell or bone marrow transplant. However, cannabis is also a natural alternative that can kill cancer cells.

In 2016, an experiment published in BioMed Central Cancer found that the psychoactive component in cannabis, THC, successfully halted the proliferation of leukemia cell cultures. The study used the drug dronabinol, which is a synthetic drug designed to resemble and mimic the effects of THC. The researchers found that the drug was most effective in  acute lymphoblastic and myeloid leukemia cells.

Also cancer research has shown that cannabis compounds can trigger apoptosis in tumor cells, which is a hallmark of an effective cancer drug. In 2006, a study published in Molecular Cancer Research found that THC treatment successfully triggered apoptosis in cultured leukemia T cells.

Additional research has shown that cannabis compounds are anti-metastatic, which prevents tumor cells from infecting other areas after a tumor develops. In the laboratory, cannabis compounds also prevent tumor cells from establishing blood vessels. Without blood vessels, the tumors starve.

#6- Oral Cancer

Due to an increase in national marijuana usage, state-by-state legalization, and an overall laissez-faire societal view, questions have arisen relating marijuana use to oral cancer development. Does the smoke from marijuana or the properties associated with its chemical nature lead to oral cancer?

Photo credit: Pinterest

The overall consensus among researchers is no. According to Norml.org, cannabis smoke — unlike tobacco smoke — has not been definitively linked to cancer in humans. Cannabis smoke contains many of the same carcinogens as tobacco smoke … but just not the cancer-causing carcinogens. In fact, cannabis also contains cannabinoids, such as THC, which contain anticancer properties. A study published by the US National Library of Medicine shows that cannabinoids are potent inhibitors of cellular respiration and are toxic to highly malignant oral tumours.

#7- Liver Cancer

The liver is the body’s primary detoxification organ. The filtering factory for all of our blood, it is particularly susceptible to certain kinds of cancers. Fortunately, recent research has found that cannabinoid therapy may halt the progression of the disease.

Photo credit: Pinterest

In 2015, Chinese researchers tested a synthetic cannabinoid called WIN55, 212-2 against HCC tumor cells. Cannabinoid is a man-made model of THC, the primary psychoactive in marijuana. The tumor cells were cultivated and treated outside the body.

Researchers observed that when cannabinoid is applied to the cells, the tumor growth seemed to stop. Cannabinoid stopped the development of the cancer cells by activating special receptors in the tumor. It engaged the cannabinoid receptor 2, which is a site that acts sort of like a lock, waiting for specific instructions from a chemical trigger.

#8- Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer is a particularly aggressive form of cancer and is very difficult to treat. Unfortunately, the devastating condition is also on the rise. However, a study published in 2006 by a team of Spanish researchers, who found that cannabinoids – including natural and synthetic versions of THC – were able to reduce the growth of tumors in two different animal models of pancreatic cancer. Interestingly, the study found that while cannabinoids were able to induce apoptosis (cell death) of tumor cells, normal pancreatic cells were left unaffected.

Photo credit: Pinterest

#9- Ovarian Cancer

As the name implies, ovarian cancer is cancer of the ovaries, and as such, only affects women. As the seventh-most common form of cancer for women, this is treated very seriously, particularly because it attacks such a vital part of the body, making surgery more complicated and dangerous.

Photo credit: Pinterest

Like most types of cancer, there is a wide variety of potential treatment options for ovarian cancer, including immunotherapy, chemotherapy, etc. However, there can be debilitating side effects to some treatments, as well as inherent risk, so, many people have turned to more natural forms of treatment for ovarian cancer: Cannabis.

A study with medical marijuana support a new therapeutic approach for the treatment of ovarian cancer. It is also conceivable that with available cannabinoids as lead compounds, non-habit forming agents that have higher biological effects could be developed.

Final Thoughts

As you can see cannabis is excellent for combating various types of cancer and even for fighting other diseases! Every day there is more and more research, which proves the effectiveness of this natural plant, although the FDA still does not see it as safe.

There is no doubt that the natural is winning its battlefield in medicine, it is time for us to start using it. Heal yourself naturally!

  • A study published in the US National Library of Medicine, conducted by the California Pacific Medical Centre, determined that cannabidiol (CBD) inhibits human breast cancer cell proliferation and invasion. They also demonstrated that CBD significantly reduces tumour mass. Another study published in the journal Molecular Cancer showed that THC reduced tumour growth and tumour numbers. They determined that cannabinoids inhibit cancer cell proliferation, induce cancer cell apoptosis, and impair tumour angiogenesis.  (study #1, study #2)

#3- Lung Cancer

  • While smoking marijuana is never good for the lungs, the active ingredient in marijuana may help fight lung cancer. A study published in the journal Oncogene by Harvard Medical School’s Experimental Medicine Department determined that THC inhibits epithelial growth factor induced lung cancer cell migration and more. (see full study)
  • Also, a study published in the US National Library of Medicine by the Institute of Toxicology and Pharmacology in Germany determined that cannabinoids inhibit cancer cell invasion. Effects were confirmed in primary tumour cells from a lung cancer patient.  Overall, data indicated that cannabinoids decrease cancer cell invasiveness. (see full study)

#4- Prostate Cancer

  • A study in Italy analyzed the effect of cannabidiol (CBD) on prostate cancer. These chemicals are not related to THC, the component that makes one “high” with marijuana. The researchers found that CBD was effective in killing prostate carcinoma. It also prevented its growth and spread. They also found that the chemicals in cannabis enhance each other’s cancer-killing properties. (see full study)
  • Also, in 2009, a team of researchers from the University of Alcalá in Spain published a study in the British Journal of Cancer that adds merit to the thought. It suggests that cannabinoid treatments could inhibit prostate cancer cell growth through activation of the CB2 receptors. (see full study)

#5- Blood Cancer

  • Blood cancers affect the production and function of your blood cells. Most of these cancers start in your bone marrow where blood is produced. In most blood cancers, the normal blood cell development process is interrupted by uncontrolled growth of an abnormal type of blood cell. Common treatments are chemotherapy, radiotherapy and, in some cases, a stem cell or bone marrow transplant. However, cannabis is also a natural alternative that can kill cancer cells.
  • In 2016, an experiment published in BioMed Central Cancer found that the psychoactive component in cannabis, THC, successfully halted the proliferation of leukemia cell cultures. The researchers found that the drug was most effective in  acute lymphoblastic and myeloid leukemia cells. (see full study)
  • In 2006, a study published in Molecular Cancer Research found that THC treatment successfully triggered apoptosis in cultured leukemia T cells. Additional research has shown that cannabis compounds are anti-metastatic, which prevents tumor cells from infecting other areas after a tumor develops.  (study #1, study #2)

#6- Oral Cancer

  • Mouth cancer (sometimes known as oral cancer) mainly affects the tongue, cheeks, throat and lips. However, it can also develop in the tonsils and the salivary glands. A study published by the US National Library of Medicine shows that cannabinoids are potent inhibitors of cellular respiration and are toxic to highly malignant oral tumours. (see full study)

#7- Liver Cancer

  • The liver is the body’s primary detoxification organ. The filtering factory for all of our blood, it is particularly susceptible to certain kinds of cancers. Fortunately, recent research has found that cannabinoid therapy may halt the progression of the disease.
  • In 2015, Chinese researchers tested a synthetic cannabinoid called WIN55, 212-2 against HCC tumor cells. Researchers observed that when cannabinoid is applied to the cells, the tumor growth seemed to stop. Cannabinoid stopped the development of the cancer cells by activating special receptors in the tumor. It engaged the cannabinoid receptor 2, which is a site that acts sort of like a lock, waiting for specific instructions from a chemical trigger. (see full study)

#8- Pancreatic Cancer

  • Pancreatic cancer is a particularly aggressive form of cancer and is very difficult to treat. Unfortunately, the devastating condition is also on the rise. However, a study published in 2006 by a team of Spanish researchers, who found that cannabinoids – including natural and synthetic versions of THC – were able to reduce the growth of tumors in two different animal models of pancreatic cancer. Interestingly, the study found that while cannabinoids were able to induce apoptosis (cell death) of tumor cells, normal pancreatic cells were left unaffected. (see full study)

#9- Ovarian Cancer

  • Ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer death among American women. In 2014, it killed more than 14,000 women, because it is a hard disease to detect and treat. However, a study with medical marijuana support a new therapeutic approach for the treatment of ovarian cancer. It is also conceivable that with available cannabinoids as lead compounds, non-habit forming agents that have higher biological effects could be developed. (see full study)

Oncologists Don’t Like Baking Soda Cancer Treatment Because It’s Too Effective and Too Cheap

Even the most aggressive cancers which have metastasized have been reversed with baking soda cancer treatments. Although chemotherapy is toxic to all cells, it represents the only measure that oncologists employ in their practice to almost all cancer patients. In fact, 9 out of 10 cancer patients agree to chemotherapy first without investigating other less invasive options.

Doctors and pharmaceutical companies make money from it. That’s the only reason chemotherapy is still used. Not because it’s effective, decreases morbidity, mortality or diminishes any specific cancer rates. In fact, it does the opposite. Chemotherapy boosts cancer growth and long-term mortality rates and oncologists know it.

Now:

A few years ago, University of Arizona Cancer Center member Dr. Mark Pagel received a $2 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to study the effectiveness of personalized baking soda cancer treatment for breast cancer. Obviously there are people in the know who have understood that sodium bicarbonate, that same stuff that can save a person’s life in the emergency room in a heartbeat, is a primary cancer treatment option of the safest and most effective kind.

Studies have shown that dietary measures to boost bicarbonate levels can increase the pH of acidic tumors without upsetting the pH of the blood and healthy tissues. Animal models of human breast cancer show that oral sodium bicarbonate does indeed make tumors more alkaline and inhibit metastasis. Based on these studies, plus the fact that baking soda is safe and well tolerated, world renowned doctors such as Dr. Julian Whitaker have adopted successful cancer treatment protocols as part of an overall nutritional and immune support program for patients who are dealing with the disease.

Sodium bicarbonate becomes a first-line medicinal for the treatment of cancer also kidney disease Click To Tweet

The Whitaker protocol uses 12 g (2 rounded teaspoons) of baking soda mixed in 2 cups water, along with a low-cal sweetener of your choice. (It’s quite salty tasting.) Sip this mixture over the course of an hour or two and repeat for a total of three times a day.

When taken orally with water, especially water with high magnesium content, and when used transdermally in medicinal baths, sodium bicarbonate becomes a first-line medicinal for the treatment of cancer, and also kidney disease, diabetes, influenza and even the common cold. It is also a powerful buffer against radiation exposure, so everyone should be up to speed on its use. Everybody’s physiology is under heavy nuclear attack from strong radioactive winds that are circling the northern hemisphere.

Dr. Robert J. Gillies and his colleagues have already demonstrated that pretreatment of mice with baking soda results in the alkalinization of the area around tumors. The same researchers reported that bicarbonate increases tumor pH and also inhibits spontaneous metastases in mice with breast cancer.

[nbsp]

What is Baking Soda?

Photo credit: Pinterest

Baking soda is a white crystalline solid that appears as fine powder. It is also called cooking soda, bread soda and bicarbonate of soda. Its chemical name is sodium bicarbonate or sodium hydrogen carbonate.

Baking soda is different from washing soda (sodium carbonate) although they share the same slightly salty and alkaline taste.

This widely used soda is commonly dissolved in mineral water and used as a leavening agent in baking. It works as a leavening agent by neutralizing the acidic components of batter. The neutralization releases carbon dioxide and leads to the “raising” or expansion of baked foods.

Baking soda has also been used to soften vegetable and to tenderize meat.

As a household chemical, baking soda is used as a cleaning agent. It is included in toothpastes for similar reasons where it serves as an antiseptic, acid-neutralizer, whitening agent and plaque-removing agent as well as a cleaning agent.

Other common personal hygiene products in which baking soda can be found include deodorants and shampoos.

[nbsp]

Baking Soda and pH Medicine

The pH of our tissues and body fluids is crucial and central because it affects and mirrors the state of our health or our inner cleanliness. The closer the pH is to 7.35-7.45, the higher our level of health and wellbeing.

Staying within this range dramatically increases our ability to resist acute illnesses like colds and flues as well as the onset of cancer and other diseases. Keeping our pH within a healthy range also involves necessary lifestyle and dietary changes that will protect us over the long term while the use of sodium bicarbonate gives us a jump-start toward increased alkalinity.

The pH scale is like a thermometer showing increases and decreases in the acid and alkaline content of fluids. Deviations above or below a 7.35-7.45 pH range in the tightly controlled blood can signal potentially serious and dangerous symptoms or states of disease.

 

When the body can no longer effectively neutralize and eliminate the acids, it relocates them within the body’s extra-cellular fluids and connective tissue cells directly compromising cellular integrity. Conversely when the body becomes too alkaline from too much bicarbonate in the blood, metabolic alkalosis occurs, which can lead to severe consequences if not corrected quickly.

Hydrogen ions tie up oxygen. That means that the more acid a liquid is, the less available the oxygen in it. Every cell in our body requires oxygen for life and to maintain optimum health. Combine that with what we know about hydrogen ions and we see that the more acid the blood (the lower its pH), the less oxygen is available for use by the cells. Without going into a discussion of the chemistry involved, just understand that it’s the same mechanism involved when acid rain “kills” a lake.

The fish literally suffocate to death because the acid in the lake “binds up” all of the available oxygen. It’s not that the oxygen has gone anywhere; it’s just no longer available.

Conversely, if you raise the pH of the lake (make it more alkaline), oxygen is now available and the lake comes back to life. Incidentally, it’s worth noting that cancer is related to an acid environment (lack of oxygen)–the higher the pH (the more oxygen present in the cells of the body), the harder it is for cancer to thrive.

[nbsp]

Understanding this is important for two reasons:

1- It reveals one of the primary benefits of alkaline water–more “available” oxygen in the system.

2- It explains why alkaline water helps fight cancer.

How Baking Soda Can Help to Cure Cancer

Basically, malignant tumors represent masses of rapidly growing cells. The rapid rate of growth experienced by these cells means that cellular metabolism also proceeds at very high rates.

Therefore, cancer cells are using a lot more carbohydrates and sugars to generate energy in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate).

However, some of the compounds formed from the energy production include lactic acid and pyruvic acid. Under normal circumstances, these compounds are cleared and utilized as soon as they are produced. But cancer cells are experiencing metabolism at a much faster rate. Therefore, these organic acid accumulate in the immediate environment of the tumor.

The high level of extracellular acidity around the tumor is one of the chief driving force behind the metastasis of cancer tumors.

[nbsp]

This is crazy:

Basically, cancer cells need an acidic environment to grow and spread rapidly.

The researchers determined that sodium bicarbonate works by raising the pH outside cells and not within cells.

Some cancer experts, therefore, believe that by buffering the tumor microenvironment with an alkalizing compound, the pH of tumors can be raised enough to starve them and stop their growth and spread.

Photo credit: Pinterest

This rather simple solution to cancer has been proven right

What is even more remarkable is that there is no need to cook up some fancy synthetic drug to lower the acidity in the immediate environment of the tumor. A simple, commonly obtained compound like sodium bicarbonate will do.

Obviously, it is desirable to deliver the sodium bicarbonate as close to the tumor as possible since its pH-raising effect is needed in the microenvironment of the tumor. Therefore, directly injecting sodium bicarbonate in the tumor site is considered a better solution than oral administration. However, oral sodium bicarbonate is just safer and can be readily used at home.

A 2009 study published in the journal, Cancer Research, is among the first to confirm that the alkalinizing effect of sodium bicarbonate can indeed stop cancer.

By injecting sodium bicarbonate into a group of mice, the authors of the study were able to determine how the growth and spread of cancer tumors were effected by raising the pH of the organ affected by the cancer.

The study results showed that baking soda indeed raised the pH and reduced spontaneous metastases in mice induced with breast cancer.

Want to know the best part?

The researchers also determined that sodium bicarbonate works by raising the pH outside cells and not within cells. This is an important finding because it suggests that sodium bicarbonate does not interfere with cellular metabolism even as it makes the microenvironment conducive for tumor growth.

Other findings from this study show that baking soda:

  • Reduced the involvement of the lymph node on the transport of cancer cells.
  • Does not lower the levels of circulating tumor cells.
  • Reduced the involvement of the liver and, therefore, the spread of tumor cells to other organs.
  • Inhibit the colonization of other organs by circulating tumor cells.

The Baking Soda Formula for Cancer

Photo credit: Ebay

To make the baking soda natural cancer remedy at home, you need maple syrup, molasses or honey to go along with the baking soda.

In Dr. Sircus’ book (Sodium Bicarbonate: Nature’s Unique First Aid Remedy), he documented how one patient used baking soda and blackstrap molasses to fight the prostate cancer that had metastasized to his bones. On the first day, the patient mixed 1 teaspoon of baking soda with 1 teaspoon of molasses in a cup of water.

He took this for another 3 days after which his saliva pH read 7.0 and his urine pH read 7.5.

Encouraged by these results, the patient took the solution 2 times on day 5 instead of once daily. And from day 6 – 10, he took 2 teaspoons each of baking soda and molasses twice daily.

By the 10th day, the patient’s pH had risen to 8.5 and the only side effects experienced were headaches and night sweat (similar to cesium therapy).

The next day, the patient had a bone scan and too other medical tests. His results showed that his PSA (prostate-specific antigen, the protein used to determine the severity of prostate enlargement and prostate cancer) level was down from 22.3 at the point of diagnosis to 0.1.

Another baking soda formula recommends mixing 90 teaspoons of maple syrup with 30 teaspoons of baking soda.

To do this, the maple syrup must be heated to become less viscous. Then the baking syrup is added and stirred for 5 minutes until it is fully dissolved.

This preparation should provide about 10-day worth of the baking soda remedy. 5 – 7 teaspoons per day is the recommended dose for cancer patients.

 

Precaution: Care should be taken when using the baking soda remedy to treat cancer. This is because sustaining a high pH level can itself cause metabolic alkalosis and electrolyte imbalance. These can result in edema and also affect the heart and blood pressure.

One does not have to be a doctor to practice pH medicine. Every practitioner of the healing arts and every mother and father needs to understand how to use sodium bicarbonate. Bicarbonate deficiency is a real problem that deepens with age so it really does pay to understand and appreciate what baking soda is all about.

So, as you can see, baking soda is just another alternative cancer treatment that can help you to cure cancer naturally, but is not the only natural treatment that you can use for cancer. In fact, there’s a list of cancer fighting foods that you definitely should read.

And is that, just by making some changes in your diet and lifestyle, you can cure not only cancer but many other diseases.

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.

[click-to-summary_shortcode][/click-to-summary_shortcode]

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.

Photo credit: Pinterest

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.

[nbsp]

Benefits of the Budwig Diet Protocol

  • It’s easy to prepare and to follow.
  • It can make medication unnecessary.
  • It’s food from the supermarket and the health food store.
  • It’s an affordable and effective health food.
  • Strengthens your immune system.
  • Anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Prevents and reverts diseases such as cancer, arthritis and heart disease.
  • Improves your overall health.
  • It can be implemented in your daily diet.
  • Cancer treatment without the negative side effects like hair loss, nausea, fatigue, injuries, etc.
  • No burden on your immune system (such as with chemotherapy and radiation).
  • Provides energy and “recharges your batteries”.
  • It’s easy to administer and can be administered at home.
  • Can save the society for unnecessary expenses.
  • Suitable for children, adolescents, adults as well as the elderly.
  • Suitable for all types of cancer.
  • Increases the oxygenation of the body.
  • Increases production of blood cells.
  • Makes the blood ow easier.
  • Helps to adjust your body’s pH.

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.

 

Photo credit: Pinterest

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.

[nbsp]

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.

Photo credit: Pinterest

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.

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.

[nbsp]

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!

Key Takeaways

  • 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.

What is The Budwig Diet Protocol?

  • Dr Johanna Budwig realized that if you mix an oil like flax 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, so too does the electrical potential of such cells slowly return to normal.

The Transition diet

  • Dr. Budwig put a great emphasis on the transitional phase from a patient’s normal diet into the Budwig Diet.
  • 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 food to activate digestive enzymes that help digest 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.
  • For very ill patients Dr. Budwig had three different proposals for transitional diet:
  • Porridge with freshly grounded 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 fresh ground flaxseed into juice for drinking throughout the day. Papaya or fresh pineapple juice is recommended as 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.

The Budwig Diet Protocol

Ingredients.

  • Cold-pressed organic flaxseed oil
  • Quark or Cottage Cheese

Method

  • 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.

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.
