Flaxseed Oil & Live Culture Yogurt -- The Budwig Diet

Dr Johanna Budwig is one of the Germany"s premier biochemists and an expert on fats and oils. She holds a PhD in natural science, has undergone medical training, and was schooled in pharmaceutical science, physics, botany and biology.

In her 90s, Dr Budwig is well known for her extensive research on the properties and benefits of flaxseed oil combined with sulphurated proteins in the diet (cottage cheese and yogurt for example), and has published a number of books on the subject, including Cancer - A Fat Problem, The Death of the Tumour, and True Health Against Arteriosclerosis, Heart Infarction and Cancer.

Dr. Dan C. Roehm, M.D., FACP, an oncologist and former cardiologist once wrote an article in 1990 to comment on Dr Budwig Diet. He said: "This diet is far and away the most succesful anti-cancer diet in the world. What she (Dr. Johanna Budwig) has demonstrated to my initial disbelief but lately, to my complete satisfaction in my practice is: CANCER IS EASILY CURABLE. The treatment is dietary/lifestyle, the response is immediate; the cancer cell is weak and vulnerable; the precise biochemical breakdown point was identified by her in 1951 and is specifically correctable, in vitro (test-tube) as well as in vivo (real). I only wish that all my patients had a PhD in Biochemistry and Quantum Physics to enable them to see how with such consumate skill this diet was put together. It is a wonder."

What? So Simple!?
After 30 years of research, Dr. Budwig came up with cottage cheese and flaxseed oil as an effective preventative and cure for cancer and many other ailments. Yogurt (live cultures, not the type in the supermarket) in stead of the cottage cheese is a suitable substitution, according to Dr. Budwig. About 3/4 cup yogurt to every tablespoon of flaxseed oil. Use spoon or egg beater to blend it together before using the electric blender, then add in fruits if necessary. We recommend you do your own live culture yogurt using organic milk...

The theory?
Dr. Budwig says the absence of linoleic acids in the average urban diet is responsible for the production of oxydase, which induces cancer growth and is the cause of many other chronic disorders. The use of oxygen in the body (one of the best ways to "erase" cancer cells) can be stimulated by protein compounds of sulphuric content, which make oils water-soluble and which are present in cheese, nuts, onion and leek vegetables such as leek, chives, onions and garlic, and ESPECIALLY COTTAGE CHEESE.

The flaxseed oil and the cottage cheese (or yogurt) must be blended and eaten together to be effective. They are synergistic. In other words, one triggers the healthful properties of the other. It is important to keep the oil in the refrigerator in the dark bottle it comes in. Light and heat quickly make it rancid. It will keep for four months in the refrigerator but only three weeks at room temperature. A word to the wise: Do not buy it if it has been stored on a shelf at the store at room temperature.

So, you just eat the FO/CC mixture and wash it down with a Whataburger, french fries and a chocolate shake...NOT! As you might expect, the FO/CC is part of a lifestyle change which emphasizes food that is not processed and contains no "hydrogenated" anything.

In addition, absolutely forbidden are:
  • Sugar
  • All animal fats
  • All salad oils (including commercial mayonnaise)
  • All meats (chemicals and hormones)
  • Butter
  • Margarine
Preserved meats (the preservatives block metabolism even of flaxseed oil) Dr. Budwig's formula includes a complete diet plan, including a flax oil "spread," which can be used with fruits, vegetables, potatoes or grains such as rice, buckwheat or millet. It can also be added to sweet sauces and soups. There is also a flax oil "mayo" which can be used for salads or healthy sandwiches.
