Hippocrates said “Let food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food, too”, but it is Dr. Johanna Budwig that made this saying a reality. Dr. Budwig is a well-known expert on fats and oils since the 1950s. She discovered that a combination of cottage cheese and flaxseed oil can treat, cure and prevent cancer, commonly known as the Budwig diet.
Dr. Budwig’s discoveries
Dr. Budwig was studying the pathogenesis of cancer in Germany when she found out that cottage cheese has the same sulfhydryl groups found in cancer treating drugs – cysteine and methionineamino acids. While researching fats and oils, Dr. Budwig found out that PUFAs, or polyunsaturated fatty acids, are the main components of cellular membranes. Without proper function of the cellular membrane, cells cannot perform cellular respiration and they lose the ability to divide or form new cells.
The two main PUFAs for cell membrane support are Linoleic acid (LA) and Linolenic acid (LNA). Linoleic acid (omega-6 fatty acids), and linolenic acid (omega-3 fatty acids), are recognized for their potent anticancer properties.
Cottage cheese and flaxseed oil work to re-energize cells
When the sulfhydryl groups in cottage cheese and flaxseed oil bind, they cause a chemical reaction which allows flaxseeds to be water soluble and enter a cell in order to supply it with energy. Cells require energy in order to properly function and energize our biological functions. Think of it as a dead car battery that needs to recharge – you need jumper cables that will provide electrical current from a good battery. It’s the same with cells – the combination of cottage cheese and flaxseed oil functions just like the jumper cables.
In Dr. Budwig’s research, patients have restored oxygen supply to their cells and cured different types of cancer including gastrointestinal, brain, breast and skin cancer.
How to make the Budwig diet a lifestyle?
Dr. Budwig has certain recommendations for beating cancer. Here are some of them:
– Drink purified water only;
– Sunbath every day in order to stimulate mind and body healing;
– Eliminate processed foods from your diet;
– Don’t eat sugar, meat or animal fat;
– Prepare fresh fruit and vegetables;
– Don’t eat leftovers – consume only freshly prepared food;
– Avoid taking drugs and supplements;
– Consume only fresh flaxseeds within 15 minutes of grinding;
– Mix the cottage cheese and flaxseed oil in a 2:1 ratio and blend until the oil is fully dissolved;
– Don’t add anything in the mix until the end
Further recommendations for the Budwig diet
Dr. Budwig recommended taking 8 tablespoons of flaxseed oil daily for cancer patients, or 1 tablespoon of the oil daily to prevent cancer. Cancer is stimulated by environmental toxins so they should be eliminated – this means elimination of trans fats, GMO foods and carcinogen-ridden cooking tools like Teflon coated pans or various plastic appliances.
Dr. Budwig’s research was so revolutionary that other cancer experts introduced similar treatments for improving cellular health and function by improving the cellular respiration, strengthening the immune system, reducing the acidity and limiting the carcinogens in the body.
Cure cancer naturally with the Budwig diet
Thanks to Dr. Budwig’s research, science has been studying the effects of fats and oils on our bodies for more than 50 years. If you deiced to try the Budwig diet, however, you must buy organic ingredients of the highest quality. Barlean’s cold pressed flaxseed oil is best, and it is easily available in most markets. Remember to never use flaxseed oil after it expires!
Nancy’s brand of organic cheese is also a good choice for the Budwig diet. It contains probiotics and enzymes that are safe for lactose intolerant people. People living in Europe should have easier access to cottage cheese.
Buying cottage cheese of insufficient quality will inhibit the necessary chemical reaction between the fatty acids and sulfhydryl groups. The preservatives and hormones in this cheese along with the high heat pasteurization will destroy the protein that contains sulfur.
Step-by-step instructions for preparing the mixture
The Budwig diet will cure and prevent cancer naturally. Use the steps below to prepare the mixture, and remember, you need a tablespoon of flaxseeds oil and 2 tablespoons of organic low-fat cottage cheese. The recipe can be adjusted depending on the severity of cancer symptoms.
- Put the flaxseed oil into a glass container, then add 2 tablespoons of cottage cheese (2% fat or less). Now, mix the ingredients with a blender for a minute (never by hand!) until the mixture achieves whipped cream texture and consistency. Finally, grind 2 tablespoons of flaxseeds in a coffee grinder for a minute, put them in a separate container then add the oil and cheese mixture in. Stir well.
In the end, add some fresh fruits, nuts and spices to improve the taste.
