Cure And Prevent Disease With The Budwig Diet

Have you heard about this simple yet remarkable approach to curing and preventing many types of disease? Check out this list of ailments which all respond favorably to the Budwig protocol:
  • Heart Ailments 
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Strokes
  • Skin conditions
  • Parkinson's Disease
  • Alzheimers
  • And Many More!
This diet is named after the German cancer research scientist Dr. Johanna Budwig.  It is one of the natural healing methods that I personally use.  The more I read about the Budwig diet, particularly the flax oil and cottage cheese combination, the more I am convinced that so many others could be experiencing better health and healing as a result.  How could I learn of something so simple and powerful and not pass it on?!  Well, I couldn't. :)  

Simply put, what happens when you make this mixture is that the sulphur-rich protein compounds in the cottage cheese chemically react with the flaxseed oil (rich in Omega 3's btw), making it water soluble.  This makes it easily absorbed into our cells where it oxygenates and restores our cell health.  Cancer cells cannot live in the presence of oxygen, so they are starved to death.  For more information, including a more thorough scientific explanation, click here

Budwig's signature FO/CC combination alone has had excellent results in clinical trials, with up to a 90% cancer recovery rate in as little as 10-13 weeks!  Improvement will often be seen within a few days to weeks for less severe problems.  Note that it is important to cut out ALL hydrogenated fats and oils, and to avoid sugar, bleached flour, all commercial meat, and dairy (except for cultured products) for the program to be most effective.  For those who are interested in learning more about Johanna Budwig's discoveries and her specific diet guidelines, this website has tons of great information.

So how do you do it?  The ratio is 2/3 cup of cottage cheese to 6 Tbsp. flaxseed oil per day. You may also substitute yogurt for the cottage cheese, but 3x the amount is needed; thus you would have to use 2 cups of yogurt per 6 Tbsp. flaxseed oil.  This is the therapeutic dose, and what I am currently doing.  If you want a preventative dose, you just cut the measures in half.  Take a stick blender or mix by hand until the oil is fully incorporated.  Then you are supposed to wait a few minutes before eating.  You may eat it plain, or mix it with fruit and yogurt or kefir to create a smoothie, which is what I do.  Just make sure to mix the oil thoroughly first before adding other ingredients.  If taking this much oil at once makes you a bit queasy, you can split it up over the day, but it is best to mix it fresh right before consuming so it doesn't get a chance to oxidize and lose it's effectiveness.  

A word concerning ingredients: It is best to buy organic cottage cheese or yogurt, or make your own from raw milk if possible.  I hope to demonstrate how to do this shortly.  The flax oil you buy should be from the refrigerated section of your health food/ grocery store and not just hanging out on a drug store shelf, as it is susceptible to heat damage.  For a great online source, check out  Their oil is organic, pressed fresh daily, and they have frequent sales which make their products the most affordable I have found anywhere.  

This is a fabulous, cost effective food that will fill you up for hours and keep you running strong.  Try it and you will see for yourself.  Enjoy being healthy!
