The Budwig Diet

Scientific: The Budwig Protocol has it its heart a diet with its roots in a phenomenon known as the “Warburg Effect” discovered by 1931 Nobel Prize winner, medical doctor and biochemist, Otto Heinrich Warburg. Through his work on respiration he discovered that, in the absence of oxygen, cancer cells would metabolise sugar which enabled them to multiply. In the same era, Dr Johanna Budwig, another eminent German biochemist, found that highly unsaturated cold-pressed linseed oil would carry oxygen into the cells to fight cancer. Increasingly modern scientific research supports the benefits to health of the diet.

Holistic: Dr Johanna Budwig developed this into the natural, holistic, diet-based Budwig Protocol also called the Budwig Diet it was scientifically way ahead of its time.

Modern Health Discoveries: The protocol incorporates what we think of today as leading edge health/diet discoveries; the Budwig protocol addresses: sunshine and vitamin D; gut health and its flora of “good” bacteria; acid-alkali balance; “superfoods” including green tea and improved levels of all nutrients; hormone balancing phyto-nutrients; ketogenic diet; exercise and sleep; the importance of the spiritual and emotional side of healing. The Budwig protocol can be of benefit in many areas of health from the digestion to fertility as well as being used to treat many serious conditions including arthritis, cancer, diabetes and heart disease…continue reading at www.budwig-diet.co.uk/

Does the Budwig protocol work for all types of degenerative diseases and tumors?
Dr Johanna Budwig explained in her books that her healing plan works on improving the cells of the body. It doesn’t matter where the diseased cells are located or what name if given to your degenerative disease because the Budwig program gives cells what is needed (the essential good fats/oils) in order for them to normalize in their functioning process. However that does not mean we use exactly the same diet and therapies and herbal remedies for each person. Blood test, Quantum testing and a Health Check Questionnaire needs to be completed beforehand to tailor the treatment to the type of illness you have, your immune system, toxics levels, your energy status, etc.

Dr. Budwig had not only excellent results with even advanced degenerative diseases and tumors but also some 50 other common serious illnesses such as Arthritis, Asthma, Fibromyalgia, Diabetes, Blood Pressure, Multiple sclerosis, Heart Disease, Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne, …

At The Budwig Center we have over 30 years of research behind us and the Johanna Budwig protocol has 50 years of research and countless Case Studies to back it up…continue reading at www.budwigcenter.com/

Scientific evidence

A well-respected scientist, Dr Budwig conducted much research to test her theories. However no clinical trials of the Budwig diet exist at this time. However, there are lots of patient testimonials backing it’s effectiveness.

Budwig Protocol Led to Dramatic Comeback for Mesothelioma Survivor

Tim Povtak

When they left the hospital in June, Marilyn B. was told that her husband, James, belonged in a hospice facility, where they could make him as comfortable as possible through his final weeks with malignant pleural mesothelioma.

Fortunately, she didn’t listen, taking a detour to their home instead, arriving with her own shot-in-the-dark plan, unwilling to accept the medical advice that previously led to the chemotherapy regimen that almost killed him.

Thank goodness, she didn’t listen this time. She just started feeding him.

The couple, whose last name is being withheld over privacy concerns, turned to the Budwig Protocol, a radical change of diet that revolves around a special oil-protein mixture that includes cold-pressed flaxseed oil and cottage cheese. It provides the essential omega-3 acids that become the sparks for cells to detoxify, fill with oxygen, and function optimally.

It has worked miraculously for James.

“When we left the hospital, all they talked about was palliative care, that he needed to be where they can take care of you when you’re dying,” Marilyn said from their home in Ottawa, Ontario. “I said no, no, no. There has to be something else out there. We just weren’t ready to give up. I don’t know exactly why this works, or how long it will work, but it’s remarkable how well he is right now. He went out and shoveled some snow off the drive the other day.” Read the full story at Asbestos.com

Subject: Dramatic results from Budwig
FOCC dissolving stage three breast cancer

Hello Budwig Staff:

I have a dramatic testimony that is medically documented as I have been seeing an oncologist at Northstar Cancer treatment center in Yakima Wa. USA since Sept. of 2014 until now. My stage three breast cancer that involved a high grade large tumor about 9 cm in the right breast is now all but dissolved and almost gone. I have dramatic before and after MRI reports. I can’t say that prayer by many people was not a big part of it, it was! But I was directed to use the Budwig protocol when I had never heard of it before. It brought amazing results.

Exciting. I went to having a 90 percent high grade cancer which was filling up 1/2 to 3/4 of the right breast in my first MRI in Sept. 2014 to having dramatic improvement in my latest MRI here the end of May. The surgeon told me that I was to have surgery then (Sept. 2014) it would need to be a mastectomy. The same surgeon, Dr. Bernfield was amazed at the new report. I only went back to him as a referral from my oncologist, Dr. Vicky Jones, as a comparison, and what would surgery look like today if I had any. However it looks like it is dismantling and going away!

Doctors these days do not know what to do when somebody’s cancer appears to be going away. He said he needed to talk to the radiologist. “IS HE SAYING IN THE REPORT IT IS GREATLY IMPROVING…IS HE SAYING IT’S NOT THERE? I’LL CALL YOU.” Then he promptly went on vacation for a week, so I have not heard back from him. When we parted he said that he hoped that it would keep shrinking.

Some quotes from my MRI report.

Right breast: The areas of marked signal alteration in the right breast that were present previously on 09/08/2014 are markedly less prominent on today’s study. There is no obvious skin thickening identified. We note that there is no evidence for any enhancing lesion in the retroareolar glandular pattern or the more posterior glandular pattern. Both of which have diminished significantly in signal size and content. There are no areas of abnormal enhancement in the right breast.

I originally had a tiny lump, about 1/4 the size of a pea (5mm) which was spotted in an area of calcification. The large 9 cm one was not picked up on the mammogram at all, and had to be evaluated through ultra sound and MRI. So apparently both have diminished.

I also use mushroom complexes such as AHCC and Turkey Tail extract, and modified Pectin-C such as Pecstisol (eco Nugenics), but the Budwig Protocol has been the main core treatment. I take the mixture, 4 TBS flax seed oil to 1/2 cup of lowfat cottage cheese, I envelope Stevia, a few strawberries fresh or frozen. I often double or triple the recipe, blend well in the electric blender. Serve with blueberries or a little more fruit of choice. Wild blue berries are the most anti-oxidant, and can be obtained frozen through various venders. I drink green tea in the morning, plus a green tea supplement Tegreen, equivalent to 7 cups of green tea in one capsule (Nuskin)

I have not completely eliminated meat, but eat less meat and more steamed or raw vegetables and do juicing and vegetable drinks in the Nutri-Bullet. The meats are Buffalo, steaks or burger (no hormones) wild salmon, organic chicken or grass fed beef, no hormones. The meat is a small helping more green salads and veggies.

Hakon came to the BUDWIG CENTER for the full 2 week Gold Program in Jan 15, 2015. After following the Budwig program carefully the doctors declared his cancer had gone into remission in March 2015. Hakon came back to the BUDWIG CENTER in May 2015 for additional VEGA tests and maintenance treatments. No cancer was found in the tests.

My brain tumor was discovered when I was 11 years old (14 years ago this December). It was discovered, because all of the sudden, I developed Bells Palsy (paralysis of the face). A scan showed that the tumor was blocking the brain fluid from draining so it kept building up and eventually caused too much pressure on my brain. I had no problems with it otherwise.

After the tumor bled out on June 30, 2010, I had brain surgery. On October 1, 2010, 90% of the tumor was removed. They could not remove all 100% because the doctor did not know where the tumor ended and my brain began. They recommended that I have Chemotherapy and radiation, but we chose not to go that route.

After being treated at the BUDWIG CENTER, the biopsy showed that the tumor was not cancerous, but it has been about eight months since my last treatment at the Budwig Center. My cancer has totally gone into remission and I want to tell the world about this good news.

Potential side-effects

Plant-based foods contain only minimal amounts of Vitamin B12. For this reason, those who pursue a vegetarian diet or another kind of diet such as Budwig should make sure they take Vitamin B12 supplements to ensure an adequate supply.
Adverse events
The hull of flaxseed contains a mucilage that binds water in the intestines, expands and has a laxative effect. As a result, adequate hydration is necessary.
Flaxseed is contraindicated in patients with ileus or stenoses in the gastrointestinal tract.
Flaxseed can absorb orally administered medication and thus have an impact on its efficacy. Consequently, flaxseed (not flaxseed oil) should only be taken a few hours before or after taking medication by mouth to prevent decreased absorption.
