The Budwig Protocol
The Budwig Protocol is an alternative cancer treatment which is natural and gentle through diet and supplements.
Visit the Budwig Centre website to find out more information. I am not affiliated with the Budwig Centre in any way, I just want to raise awareness of what options are available to you.
A recent testimony from a cancer survivor
“I was diagnosed with a tumor 16 months ago and the hospital told me I only had 7 months to live. I wanted to be treated naturally, so I went to the Budwig Center in Spain. I am still here! I STRONGLY RECOMENED THEM!”
Kerry is using the Budwig Protocol to successfully heal her stage 4 bone cancer. Please take a look at the video to see how she is doing this.
If you have used the Budwig Protocol please let us know so we can share your story with other cancer patients.
The Budwig diet has been successfully helping people with cancer, but also Arthritis, Asthma, Fibromyalgia, Diabetes, Blood Pressure, Multiple sclerosis, Heart Disease, Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne and other chronic conditions.
To start the diet, you will need to have 3 appliances:
· A coffee bean grinder to grind the flaxseeds.
· An immersion hand-held blender (a stick-shaped mixer) It’s important to use an electric mixer rather than stirring by hand.
· A Juice Machine. The BLENDTEC or a masticating type juicer is said to give a more healthful juice than a centrifugal type. If you do not have this type of juicer the BUDWIG CENTER can help you locate one.
Budwig Diet Flaxseed Oil and Cottage Cheese (FOCC):
Generally, each tablespoon of Flaxseed Oil (FO) is blended with 2 or more tablespoons of low-fat organic Cottage Cheese (CC) or quark.
Note: Whenever Tablespoons are mentioned it is the standard US tablespoon, which is the equivalent of the British “dessert” spoon.
1 US Tablespoon = 15 ml and 1 British Tablespoon is 18 ml – 16 tablespoons = cup and 4 tablespoons = 1/4 cup.
· To make the Budwig Muesli, blend 3 Tablespoons (British dessert spoons) of flaxseed oil (FO) with 6 Tbps low-fat (less than 2%) Quark or Cottage Cheese (CC) with a hand-held immersion electric blender for up to a minute If the mixture is too thick and/or the oil does not disappear you may need to add 2 or 3 Tablespoons of milk (goat milk would be the best option). Do not add water or juices when blending FO with CC or quark. The mixture should be like rich whipped cream with no separated oil. Remember you must mix ONLY the FO and CC and nothing else at first. Always use organic food products when possible. Organic flaxseed oil can be found in most UK health food shops.
· Now once the FO and CC are well mixed grind 2 Tbps of whole flaxseeds and add to the mixture. Please note that freshly ground flax seeds must be used within 20 minutes after being ground or they will become rancid. Next mix in by hand or with the blender 1 teaspoon of honey (raw non-pasteurised is recommended)
· (Optional) For variety you may add other ingredients such as sugar free apple sauce, cinnamon, vanilla, lemon juice, chopped almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, cashews (no peanuts), pine kernels, rosehip-marrow. For people who find the Budwig Muesli hard to take these added foods will make the mixture more palatable.
· (Optional) Add ground up Apricot kernels (no more than 6 kernels per day). Or you may decide to eat these apricot kernels on their own.
Nausea – Some people get nausea from the ground flaxseeds, to counter this by taking a small bowl of papaya immediately afterwards or some fresh peppermint tea. Also, put a lot of papaya into the morning muesli too.
The Basic Rule with the Budwig diet
“if God made it, then its fine and try to eat it in the same form that God made it”. Here are some foods that many are not sure of, but they are accepted on the Budwig diet.
· Stevia, raw non-pasteurised honey, Xylitol (from Birch trees), dates, dates, figs, berry and fruit juices serve as sweeteners.
· Herbs in their natural form (pure nothing added)
· All nuts (raw unroasted) are fine except peanuts
· All seeds good, sunflower seeds are very complete and filling
· Raw un processed cocoa, shredded (unsweetened coconut)
· Cup of black tea is accepted (coffee beans are toxic and not recommended)
· Any flour is permissible as long as it’s 100% whole grain. Corn is best to avoid because of mold/fungus and genetic manipulation
· 2 or 3 slices of health food store pickles (no preservatives! – read label!)
· Freezing cottage cheese /Quark as well as fruits and vegetables is ok.
· VERY IMPORTANT: The flaxseed oil must always be kept in the refrigerator.
· Drink only distilled water or reverse osmosis water.
Foods to avoid according to Dr. Budwig
· NO hydrogenated oils, NO trans-fats, (instead consume all cold pressed oils, such as sunflower seed oil, olive oil, etc)
· NO animal fats NO pork (pigs are the cleaners of the earth and their meat is loaded with toxins. ham, bacon, sausages, etc should be avoided)
· NO seafood (lobsters, clams, shrimp, all fish with a hard shell are cleaners of the sea and are loaded with toxins..)
· White regular pasta is eliminated, as is white bread, (Kamut or Spelt pasta and bread is a better choice than wheat) many patients have an intolerance to wheat, whole Rye, Oat, Multigrain bread is good. Corn is very discouraged (because of mold and genetic modification issues).
· NO ice cream or dairy products (other than the cottage cheese)
· NO white sugar, molasses, maple syrup or preservatives.
· NO processed foods (NO store bought pastries), make your own with our recipes
· NO Soy products (unless fermented or used for 2 or 3 weeks at the beginning if you cannot tolerate the cottage cheese)
· Avoid pesticides and chemicals, even those in household products & cosmetics. Good old vinegar, as well as baking soda are excellent household cleaners (look on the Internet for more info)
· NO microwave, NO Teflon or aluminium cooking ware or aluminium foil. We recommend and provide during your stay at Budwig Center enamel cooking ware. Stainless steel, ceramic, cast iron, glass and corning cooking wear are fine.
During research it was found that the blood of seriously ill cancer patients had deficiency of unsaturated essential fats….I also noticed that cancer patients had a strange greenish-yellow substance in their blood which is not present in the blood of healthy people. I wanted to develop a healing program for cancer. So I decided to straight way go for human trails and enrolled 600 patients from four big hospitals in Munster (Germany). I started to give flax oil and cottage cheese to the cancer patients.
After just three months, patients began to improve in health and strength, the yellow green substance in their blood began to disappear, tumours gradually receded…I treated approximately 2500 cancer patients during last few decades. Prof. Halme of surgery clinic in Helsinki used to keep records of my patients. According to him my success was over 90%…”
What Is the Basis of Her Cancer Program?
The basis of Dr. Budwig’s protocol is the ingestion of a special oil-protein mixture in the form of organic cold-pressed flaxseed oil plus cottage cheese or quark. When you mix together, cottage cheese and linseed (flaxseed) oil in your blender the fat becomes water-soluble and thereby immediately available for use by the body. In this manner, the necessary “spark plugs” are provided for cells to “breathe”, optimally detoxify and function.
Does Her Protocol Work for All Types of Cancers and Diseases?
Dr. Budwig explained in her books that her healing plan works on improving the cells of the body. It doesn’t matter where the cancer is located or what name is given to your illness because the Budwig program addresses the basic cause of the illness in the first place.
The lack of adequate oxygen in the body enables harmful viruses, fungus and parasites to live and enter the cells of the body causing a host of illnesses. Cancer is a virus and when it metastases it creates an ideal environment for fungus to also cohabit within the diseased cells.
The flaxseed oil and cottage cheese enables the body to produce high doses of natural oxygen. Cancer cannot live in the presence of natural oxygen. So no matter where the cancer is in the body the Budwig approach will be a tremendous complementary tool in the fight against cancer. Her program also helped with some 50 common illnesses.
These oils get into our cell membranes and destroy the electrical charge. Without the charge, our cells start to suffocate due to a lack of oxygen. No wonder, Dr. Budwig found that patients often displayed a greenish colour to their blood before she gave them the good healthy flaxseed oil mixture.
