Too many in the natural health field, especially writers, scoff at the Budwig Diet’s core protocol as unreal and unsuited for reversing cancer. There are other dietary requirements that are part of her protocol. Lots of sunshine and stress management are also part of Johanna Budwig’s approach to healing the whole person. – Watch the Video on Page2
That core protocol is flaxseed oil and cottage cheese. Originally it was flaxseed oil and quark, a crumbly textured white cheese resembling ricotta that is common among German speaking nations, Scandinavian countries, and much of the Eastern European region. But quark is not available in America. So here it’s cottage cheese instead of quark. Even Dr. Andrew Weil was quoted as criticizing the Budwig Diet with “curing cancer with cottage cheese is wishful thinking”. Yet over a 50 year period, Johanna Budwig had a 90% plus cancer cure rate in Germany among 4500 patients afflicted with all types of cancers. Some cancer victims that she cured with her protocol were considered terminal.
THE SCIENTIFIC BASIS OF USING FLAXSEED OIL AND QUARK OR COTTAGE CHEESE TO CURE CANCER
As a biochemist and physicist in the early 1950`s, Johanna was a senior scientist in the German Federal Health Office, comparable to the American FDA but with less bureaucratic corruption. Her task was to help determine what might be appropriate for cancer curing medication from German pharmaceutical companies.
