In the 1950s, Dr. Johana Budwig was a leading expert on oils and fats. She invented the Budwig Diet which is the right combination of quark or cottage cheese and flaxseed oil. This diet is known for having therapeutic properties in preventing, treating and curing cancer.
Dr. Budwig’s Discoveries
Dr. Budwig was working as a biochemist in Germany, when she discovered that quark (a soft fresh cheese), has the very same sulphydryl groups found in cancer treatment drugs- cysteine and methionineamino acids.
The PUFAs or polyunsaturated fatty acids are major components of cellular membranes. When these membranes are not working well, they can not perform vital life processes such as- cellular respiration and the ability to divide and form new cells.
The two essential polyunsaturated fatty acids critical for cell membrane support are:
- Linolenic Acid (LNA) – also known as omega-3 fatty acids. Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids have been recognized for their anticancer properties and roles in preventing sickness and disease.
- Linoleic Acid (LA) – also known as omega-6 fatty acids.
Cottage Cheese and Flaxseed Oil Work to Re-energize Cells
When the sulphydryl groups in quark or cottage cheese binds with the unsaturated fatty acids in flaxseed oil – a chemical reaction occures which allows energy to be suplied into a cell when the flaxseed become water soluble.Our cells need energy to perform daily biological functions which is provided by quark or cottage cheese and flaxseed oil.
Note: Dr. Budwig’s cancer patients had improved oxygen supply to their cells and found relief from all forms of cancer including cancers of the gastrointestinal tract, brain, breast, and skin cancers.
How to Make the Budwig Diet Protocol a Lifestyle
- drink only purified water
- always receive a good amount of sunshine to stimulate healing in the mind and body
- eliminate all processed foods from your diet
- do not consume sugar, meat, or animal fat
- cook only fresh and organic fruits and vegetables
- make and eat foods immediately, never use leftovers
- you must avoid all drugs and supplements
- always grind flaxseeds fresh and consume within 15 minutes of grinding
- mix quark or cottage cheese and flaxseed oil in a 2:1 ratio and blend until no visible oil remains floating
- do not mix in added ingredients until final cheese mixture results
Further Recommendations for the Budwig Diet
Daily eat 8tbsp of flaxseed oil (in the mixture) if you’re suffering from cancer. To prevent it eat 1spoon daily. Toxins in our environment and all sources of these toxins can stimulate the pathogenesis of cancer,even trans fats, genetically modified foods, and carcinogen-ridden cooking tools such as Teflon coated pans and plastic.
After this discovery other researchers introduced similar cancer treatment with the aim to stimulate cellular health and function by improving cellular respiration, strengthening immunity, reducing body acidity, and limiting carcinogens in the body.
Reverse Cancer Naturally with the Budwig Diet
Purchase high quality ingredients for optimal health and healing. Chemical reaction may occur between the sulphydryl groups and fatty acids if you use lower quality cottage cheese. Preservatives and hormones in poor quality cheeses coupled with high heat pasteurization processes destroy the quality sulfur-containing protein.
Step-By-Step Instructions for Preparing the Budwig Diet Mixture
1 Tablespoon of flax oil plus 2 tablespoons of organic low fat cottage cheese or quark is recommended for every 100 pounds of an individual.
Into a glass container put 1tbsp of cold pressed flaxseed oil. Use an immersion blender to mix 2 tbsp of organic, low fat (2% or less) cottage cheese OR quark. In a coffee grinder grind 2 tablespoons of golden or brown flaxseeds. Put ground flaxseed in a separate glass bowl and add the previous mixture. You can add organic fruits, nuts and spices if you wish.
