A very effective cancer cure, and it is a cure, is being used quietly and extensively by alternative physicians. Since it is cheap and involves only diet, with no expensive drugs required, the conventional medical community has no interest in it and has virtually been ignoring it for the past 55 years. So ridiculously simple that it seems unbelievable, it has cured thousands of cancer patients, including a U.S. President, and it has brought hope to people who no longer had any. The diet is based on omega-3 fatty acids and sulfur rich protein. It can be constructed by anyone without need for a doctor, although this is highly inadvisable and most certainly not recommended.
At the time of her discovery in 1950, Dr Johanna Budwig was the German Central Government’s Senior Expert on fats and pharmaceutical drugs. Dr Budwig found that when unsaturated fats are chemically treated, their unsaturated qualities are destroyed. Dr Budwig also noticed that tumors often form in areas of the body which normally host many growth processes, such as in the skin and the GI tract, and the lack of highly unsaturated fats disturbs proper cell growth, ultimately resulting in the formation of tumors.
Dr Budwig went on to discover that a few simple foods could fix the problem. She found that the combination of cottage cheese, rich in sulfur protein, and flaxseed oil, rich in unsaturated fats, produces a chemical reaction which makes the oil water soluble and easily absorbed into the cell membranes.
STUDIES SUPPORT THE CLAIMS
Many studies have subsequently been done on this factor; most of them judiciously buried beyond the public view. Researchers have found that a diet supplemented with flaxseed reduced the formation, growth, and spread of prostate cancer, breast cancer, and skin cancers in mice. In a study with rats, flaxseed was shown to reduce the formation of precancerous colon polyps, and in a study of 15 men, it was determined that a low fat diet along with flax seed slowed the growth of benign prostate cells, thus reducing the risk of developing prostate cancer.
The death rate of prostate cancer cells was shown to increase dramatically on the introduction of a low fat diet along with ground flaxseed. And in another study on mice, those on a diet which included flaxseed oil experienced a much slower rate of tumor growth than mice held to a standard diet.
BOTTOM LINE – THE BUDWIG DIET PROTOCOL WORKS!
If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer and want to try the Budwig Diet by yourself, and this would seem to defy all common sense, then get your flaxseed oil from the refrigerated section of your local health food store. Try to avoid the high lignan flax seed oils as they don’t taste all that great. A very very good label is Barleen’s Flax Seed Oil.
Dr Budwig recommends mixing 2 tablespoons of cottage cheese with one tablespoon of oil, working your way up gradually to the full daily protocol of six to eight tablespoons of oil. Anyone with pancreatic cancer will need to very carefully and slowly work up to this amount, just one teaspoon at a time. Also, eat lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, and whole grains. You can indulge in cocoa, organic shredded coconut, and cinnamon too.
Avoid sugar and animal fats like the plague. No meat, margarine, butter, salad oils, and stay away from foods high in preservatives. They impede healing. You can have Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar. And do not eat leftovers! All food must be prepared fresh! And you need to eat this immediately on preparation – that’s important; you need the electrons before they escape and the enzymes before they die.
BUT IT AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN OVERNIGHT…
Unlike powerful prescription drugs, where one usually feels the effects immediately, natural cures take time and this one is no exception. Expect it to take six months before you see any real positive results. Afterward, when the cancer has resolved itself, it’s important to stay on a maintenance dose of one tablespoon of oil for every 100 pounds of body weight daily, in order to head off any recurrence. And again, have a good alternative physician following you the whole time you’re on this regimen and always discuss any changes you might be tempted to make with your doctor before making them.
