The Budwig Diet - Fighting Cancer Naturally
by Robert Griggs
a normal, healthy life. There are no drugs, no surgical procedures, just a simple and
healthy diet that has been proven time and again to be a powerful antidote to the
nightmare of cancer. Here we will explain a bit about the diet to help you make the
right choice of treatment for you, should you be affected by cancer.

History Of The Budwig Diet

The origins of the Budwig Diet go back to 1908, with the birth of its creator, Dr
Johanna Budwig. Throughout her long life - she died in 2003 at the age of 95 - the
German doctor became one of the top cancer researchers in Europe. She carried out
a significant amount of research into cancer and its causes, and her vast body of
work led her to being nominated for the Nobel Prize seven times, although she never
won it. Throughout her lengthy research, she came to a startling conclusion. It was
her expert opinion that all forms of cancer in the body are caused by our diets, and
that rising cancer levels could be put down to the processed foods and the
hydrogenated fats that are so prevalent in our modern diets. As a result of this, she
devised her famous diet, and began to test it out on cancer patients. The results
would change the medical community forever.

Amazing Findings

It was clear to Dr Budwig that the diet was the fundamental cause of cancer. She
discovered throughout her research that trans fats found in our diets had a negative
effect on our cell membranes by targeting the electrical charge found within them,
and that this was the main factor in the development of cancer. She also did
research into a large number of cancer patients, and found that their blood revealed
some surprising signs. One of these was that they had far lower levels of Omega 3 in
their blood than healthy people. Another was that they had much lower levels of
phosphatides and lipoproteins than healthy people. And she even discovered a
strange substance that was green and yellow in color found only in the blood of
cancer patients.

The Idea Behind The Budwig Diet

The idea behind the Budwig Diet was actually quite simple: to reverse the harm
caused by the bad elements of the modern diet by cutting them out completely. Dr
Budwig decided that if she could create a diet that would counter the effects of the
modern diet, it could help people to live a healthy life and could actually reverse the
problems caused by that diet. By providing a diet that was high in nutrients this could
help to combat the cancerous cells and increase the level of red blood cells in the

Main Foundation Of The Budwig Diet

Dr Budwig set about creating her famous diet, and came up with two main
ingredients that would be the foundation of the diet: flaxseed oil and quark (similar to
cottage cheese and common in Germany). She believed that these two ingredients
were key in reversing the damage caused by the previous diet and preventing the
development of cancer. She decided on flaxseed oil due to its high levels of Omega 3,
which was lacking in the blood of cancer patients, as well as being tolerated by most
people. Quark added the high levels of protein, and she found that the two
ingredients complemented each other perfectly.

Other Elements Of The Diet

Because no one could be expected to stick to a diet of just two ingredients, Dr
Budwig included a long list of other ingredients to make up the diet that would not
only counter the effects of the cancer, but would also provide enough variation for a
tasty diet that would be easy to stick to. There are numerous ingredients allowed on
the diet, and many recipes can be made from them, including: lentils, brown rice, raw
vegetables, porridge and many others besides.


Dr Budwig trialled her diet on numerous cancer patients, and it soon became clear
that she had found a solution to the rising number of cancer cases across the world.
She began to witness improvements after just a few months of the trials beginning,
with the blood of the cancer patients returning to normal. It is for this reason that
people all over the world are now benefiting from the Budwig Diet and the lifetime of
research that went into its creation to cure cases of cancer by a natural method.
