Essential Fatty Acids Needed for Energy Production

Dr. Johanna Budwig

the first to realize the significant role of natural, unaltered
EFAs in creating
energy at the cellular level. She focused on how

man’s vital energy back to the sun and

by attracting oxygen and increasing
cellular oxidation in metabolism (the “burning” of food). After decades
of painstaking research, she determined that, in contrast to healthy people,
cancer patients always have low blood

affect cellular oxidation / energy production?
fatty acids are fundamental to the make-up of our cell membranes. The
polyunsaturated fatty acids (EFAs
only obtained from food), contain electron “clouds” (called pi-electrons) at
their closely-spaced double-carbon bonds. These chemically reactive electron
“clouds“ attract oxygen to the membrane, thereby increasing oxidation and energy
production in the cellular respiration cycle.
Random, uncontrolled oxidation in the body is prevented by the body’s
antioxidant enzyme systems, and also by dietary

need EFAs - In a speech in 1959, Dr. Budwig said,
referring to the essential oils,
"Without these fatty acids, the respiratory enzymes cannot function and the
person suffocates, even when he is given oxygen-rich air.”
EFAs were the “missing piece“ in Cellular Respiration
In 1960, the
renowned Dr. Linus Pauling described the function of the hydrogen bridge
in cellular respiration, but was unable to identify
the electron donor for its function. Dr. Budwig was the first to recognize that
EFAs were the sought-after substance
responsible for electron displacement,
and also recognized that not only protons, but also electrons
flow over the hydrogen bridge.
is especially concentrated in membranes of the highly active brain/nerve cells,
retina, inner ear, adrenal glands and sex glands - With its 6
double-carbon bonds, DHA has 6 sites with electron “clouds“ that can attract
oxygen to the membrane, thereby increasing oxidation and energy production in
the cellular respiration cycle.

Hemoglobin (Hgb) is the iron-containing, oxygen-transport
metallo-protein in red blood cells;
Restoring cellular respiration could
possibly reverse the cancer cell back to normal -
Cancer cells are in "survival mode“, to create at least a small amount of energy
using fermentation, a process which does not use oxygen. Dr. Budwig reversed
cancer in even end-stage patients using flaxseed oil and cottage cheese (which
makes fats more soluble).
“ Here Comes the Sun !“ - EFAs Absorb Sunlight
And God said, Let there be
light: and there was light.”
God designed man to be “in tune” with the rest of His creation
Resonance Law - Physicist, Niels Bohr, determined the basic
physical law, that matter can not change its condition without either ABSORPTION
or RADIATION of electromagnetic waves of a frequency corresponding to its own
The food we eat should contain electrons, with a vibrating frequency which
attracts the electro-magnetic waves of sunbeams. An undamaged, highly
unsaturated, fatty acid source, such as in ground flax seed, cold-pressed
flax seed oil or spirulina, contain many electrons which originated from the
sun, in an unaltered form. These sun-source electrons are incorporated into cell
membranes in fatty acids, where they have a natural resonance with the sun’s
energy (think of an antenna “tuned into” the sun). These electrons not only act
as receivers, but also as amplifiers, transmitters and storage for the sun’s
photon energy, governing many of the
body’s vital functions.
Sunlight absorption increases the ability of EFA electrons
to react with oxygen about 1000-fold!
Sunbathing thus enables
in cell membranes to resonate with and harness the sun’s energy
Note on Skin cancer -
undamaged, polyunsaturated essential fats (EFAs)
in the diet beneficially absorb the suns energy, consequently using up
its burning /skin-damaging power.
Fatty Acids Combine with Sulfur-based Protein -
stressed that fatty acids become water-soluble, free-flowing and more easily
absorbed, when combined with sulfurated amino acids: methionine, cystine or
(best sources in U.S. are cottage cheese
and yogurt). The double bond sites of EFAs
readily incorporate this protein to become lipoprotein.
By bypassing the need for the liver (often impaired or diseased in ill health)
to breakdown the unsaturated fat, water-soluble fatty acids are thus available
for the body’s immediate use.
Dr. Budwig reported a
very effective therapy for many serious ailments (including
cancer) - by using a blended combination of electron-rich, fresh flax seed
oil and low-fat cottage cheese as part of a prescribed diet.
The BUDWIG PROTOCOL
Methionine, cystine, and cysteine and
their derivatives owe their designation of “sulphurated amino acids” to the fact
that they contain sulfur in addition to
carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen.
EFAs are weakly basic and form weak, oscillating
hydrogen bonds with weak acid groups such as sulfhydryl groups in proteins. The
system of unsaturated fats in association with protein is in fact a dipolar
system in its nature, where a continual exchange or movement of electrons is
able to take place.
