Budwig Protocol - Powerful therapy to restore health (used to cure cancer)

1-2-3 CANCER PLAN:   (2) Eliminate Cancer Cells  - STAGE IV / ADVANCED

(Also used as a part of the Cancer CORE Treatment)

This healing protocol is one of the few that does NOT produce inflammation and swelling, making it ideal for treating cancers where swelling would be potentially life-threatening. e.g. In the lung or brain


Enhances cellular oxygen uptake and boosts the immune system.

In addition to cancer, the BUDWIG PROTOCOL is used to cure arthritis, heart disease, arrhythmia, psoriasis, eczema and other skin diseases, MS and other auto immune diseases, diabetes, respiratory conditions, stomach ulcers, liver dysfunction, IBS and more.

What is the BUDWIG PROTOCOL and Why do it?

Who was Dr. Johanna Budwig?    Born in Germany in 1908, she lived until the ripe age of 95, passing away in 2003. She was a top European Cancer Research Scientist, Biochemist, Blood Specialist, German Pharmacologist, and Physicist. In Germany in 1952, she was the Central Government's Senior Expert for fats and pharmaceutical drugs and was considered one of the worlds leading authorities on fats and oils.

The BUDWIG PROTOCOL utilizes a simple Therapeutic Dose of Flaxseed Oil and Cottage Cheese as a deceptively POWERFUL CURE for Cancer and other health problems.    Dr. Budwig's protocol provides a natural healing approach utilizing fresh flaxseed oil blended with cottage cheese (Note: More recently, people have been substituting other sulfurated proteins, such as yogurt or kefir, which requires higher amounts, or whey concentrate powder) and fresh-ground flaxseed to enhance oxygen delivery to the body's cells, and thus increase cellular energy production. This boosts immune system cell function to deal with cancerous or otherwise unhealthy cells, microbial presence, toxins, etc. and equally importantly -protects and energizes the body's healthy cells. The protocol includes organic fresh fruit and vegetable nutrition, sunlight, and not-to be-overlooked - emotional and spiritual healing. It would be unwise to ignore this seemingly unimpressive therapy -which has surprisingly potent effects on the body's well-being -both for general health and for potentially fatal health issues, including cancer, heart disease and diabetes -even in advanced stages.

-   In the 1950's, Dr. Johanna Budwig used a high dose (several tablespoons /day) of fresh flax oil with cottage cheese and a specific diet plan, sunbathing and relaxation for shrinking tumors.   High blood triglyceride and cholesterol levels were significantly decreased, reducing the risk of blood clots. Done properly, this therapy has healed thousands of people with chronic diseases (some terminal), which invariably demonstrate a shortage of energy-enhancing electrons in cell membranes. Around the same time, Dr. Max Gerson began using flax seed oil to restore health after reading about Dr. Budwig's success;

-   Dr. Budwig's protocol has successfully been used to cure cancer (lung, colon, breast, ovarian, brain, others, with a 90% success rate,according to Dr. Budwig, and those who studied and reported on her work in Germany over a 50 year period), arthritis, heart disease, arrhythmia, psoriasis, eczema (other skin diseases), MS and other Auto Immune Diseases, diabetes, respiratory conditions,stomach ulcers, liver dysfunction, IBS and more

-   Observing blood analyses of seriously ill cancer patients, Dr. Budwig noted a strange greenish-yellow substance in the place of the healthy, red, oxygen-carrying hemoglobin.   Without exception, she found that their blood was deficient in phosphatides and lipoproteins, which resulted in a reduced oxygen level in the cells.

After 3 months of using her protocol, which allows hemoglobin to carry more oxygen, Dr Budwig found that cancer patient's blood returned to bright red, tumors began disappearing, weakness and anemia were history and life energy was restored. Symptoms of cancer, liver dysfunction, and diabetes were completely alleviated.

Dr. Budwig understood the enormous benefits of undamaged, polyunsaturated fatty acids in the body's cellular health

Dr. Budwig focused her research on the connection between cellular energy and fats

Cold-pressed polyunsaturated linoleic and linolenic fats (found in flaxseed oil) have an abundancy of high energy-producing pi-electrons which have an affinity for oxygen.   This promotes the body's assimilation and transfer of large amounts of oxygen into cells, enabling efficient energy-production and detoxification of cellular waste. Additionally, these polyunsaturated fatty acids provide cell membrane integrityby their necessary undamaged presence in the membrane, important in intra- and extracellular balance. Saturated fats (by definition) inherently lack pi-electron shells but serve their own beneficial purpose in the membrane;

-    Dr.Budwig demonstrated how the fatty acids in commercial polyunsaturated fats and oils have had their pi-electrons removed by processing.   When consumed, these damaged fatty acids:

•  Destroy cell membrane integrity.   Affects cellular transport of ingoing nutrients and outgoing waste

•  Lower the cellular “Battery” voltage, leading to chronic /terminal disease.    A cell “battery” level is determined by the difference in charge between the positively-charged nucleus and its negatively-charged membrane, which relies on pi-electron clouds present in undamaged polyunsaturated fatty acids (these pi-electrons vibrate at the natural energy frequencies received from the sun while they were growing,and thus enable the cell membrane “antennae”to “tune in”to solar electromagnetic fields (EMFs)to be used for increasing the cell “battery”voltage).

 Beneficial Energy “Charges” the Cell “Battery”

The Cell “Battery”

“The battery is dead because the electrons in these fats and oils recharge it.”

- Dr. Budwig (referring to damaged essential fats)

A healthy cell “battery” level is about -60 to -90 mV.   When a "cell battery” voltage falls to -40mV, the sodium / potassium pumps will malfunction, cellular energy production will stop, and the cell will either struggle to heal itself or die. In the case of a cancerous cell, the survival mechanism “kicks in”, enabling it only to multiply, but no longer perform its assigned task.

•  Prevents the cell from “breathing”.    Lack of oxygen-attracting electrons leave cell with insufficient oxygen for oxidation processes essential to cell function;

•  Destroy the ability of essential fats to associate with protein and so achieve water solubility in the body's fluids.   When the electrons are destroyed the fats are no longer active and cannot flow into the capillaries and through the fine capillary networks. This is when circulation problems arise.

•  Affect production of new cells.   During cell division the cell and new daughter cell must contain enough electron-rich fatty acids in the cells surface area to divide off completely from the old cell. These damaged fatty acids don't have the necessary electrons, which results in bringing healthy growth processes to a standstill. Dr. Budwig considered this inactivity to be involved in tumor formation.

“The formation of tumors usually happens as follows. In those body areas which normally host many growth processes, such as in the skin and membranes, the glandular organs, for example, the liver and pancreas or the glands in the stomach and intestinal tract --- it is here that the growth processes are brought to a stand still. Because the dipolarity is missing, due to the lack of electron rich highly unsaturated fat, the course of growth is disturbed --- the surface-active fats are not present; the substance becomes inactive before the maturing and shedding process of the cells ever takes place, which results in the formation of tumors.”

- Dr. Johanna Budwig

Dr. Budwig pointed out the connection between the human body and the sun - demonstrating that when the body is nourished with health giving oils and proteins, the pi-electrons serve as a resonance system for the sun's energy.

A German to English translation of a review of Dr. Budwig's last book Cancer-the Problem & the Solution describesthis aptly:

"We should never forget that we are heliotropes who require light with its electrons (photons). The human tissue is exceptional insofar as it is capable of storing exactly these electrons and release them again as required. The absorption happens through the so-called resonance, which means, that our tissue vibrates in the same bandwidth as the incoming rays. You can compare it to a TV antenna which must be tuned. In order for this to happen, our cells require unsaturated fatty acids like linoleic acid and linolenic acid. These fatty acids form a combination together with sulphur proteins, whose dipolarity and inherent resonance allow the human body to accept these electrons, store them and release them as required.It is this energy which ensures that we 'live'and which controls all life functions, such as PH level, protein utilization, etc. “

Dr. Budwig sees the human body as an antenna which is capable of receiving these vital healing electrons when the two 'antennas' named sulfhydryl and unsaturated fatty acids are 'properly tuned'.

-    Dr. Budwig emphasizes that EXCESSIVE amounts of antioxidants counteract the vital oxidation/ cellular oxygen uptake process of the flax oil fats in her protocol (i.e.works against the utilisation of oxygen in the body).   In her book "Der Tod des Tumors" (The Death of the Tumor) she writes that antioxidants added to oils are (respiratory) poisons. In the same book she writes on page 161: "Overdosing with isolated Vitamin E works as an antioxidant, thus it opposes the oxygen utilization in the organism." Dr. Budwig writes in her book Cancer - The Problem and the Solution, p. 50: "Fats that have industrially been made stable against oxygen acceptance, also oppose the oxygen uptake by the living tissue through auto-oxidation."

Excerpt from Dr Budwig's book - “Flax Oil As A True Aid Against Arthritis, Heart Infarction, Cancer And Other Diseases”, translated from German to English - a must read for anyone trying to heal themselves from a terminal or chronic disease.

Dr Budwig states, “What we need in Europe today, in Germany as well as in Switzerland, America, and France, what we really need are electron-rich, highly unsaturated fats. The moment two unsaturated double links occur together in a fatty acid chain, the effects are multiplied and in the highly unsaturated fats, the so called “linoleic”acids, there is generated a field of electrons, a veritable electrical charge which can be quickly conducted off into the body, thus causing a recharging of the living substance---especially of the brain and nerves. It is exactly those highly unsaturated fatty acids which play a decisive role in the respiratory functioning of the body. Without these fatty acids,enzymes can not function and we asphyxiate, even when given extra oxygen, as for example in hospital. The lack of these highly unsaturated fatty acids paralyses many vital functions. Primarily, it cuts off the air we breathe. We can not survive without air and food and we cannot survive without these fatty acids---that was proven long ago.”

“Various highly trained and educated individuals are dismayed and irritated by the fact that serious medical conditions can be cured by cottage cheese and flaxseed oil.”

To make the most of the unsaturated fatty acids in flaxseed oil, especially if you are seriously ill, they should be blended with sulfurated protein.    Dr. Budwig discovered that a chemical reaction takes place between them when they are blended that makes them water-soluble. This allows easy transport through the blood and other body fluids, making the unsaturated fatty acids and other ingredients immediately and widely available to the body's cells.

-   Sulfurated proteins.   Include low fat cottage cheese, yogurt, whey protein concntrate, kefir, ricotta cheese, and milk;

-   By-passes liver.   Blending flaxseed oil with sulfurated protein enables omega-3 fatty acids to bypass the liver (whose function is often impaired in ill health) and travel to where they are needed throughout the body.

-   In addition to flaxseed oil and cottage cheese or yogurt, the BUDWIG PROTOCOL requires:

•  A Specific Diet

•  Daily sunbathing - such that the sun's energy will resonate with and energize the electrons in the highly-active, unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids (Budwig used undamaged, fresh/unexpired, refrigerated flax seed oil, which resonates with the sun because the seeds from which the oil was produced were grown in the sun). Such vibrating Omega-3 fatty acids in the cell membrane enhance cellular energy production, by attracting oxygen to the cell

•  Relaxation

•  Attention to emotional well-being - the best “tool” for addressing deep-seated emotional issues, which may actually be the root cause of your physical health problem(s) is a simple DIY “tapping”therapy, called:

Meridan Tapping Technique

•  Dr. Budwig added Eldi Oils for external massage to the BUDWIG PROTOCOL.  Dr. Budwig created these unique oils after performing precise spectroscopic measurements of the light absorption in different oils, specifying that the oils contained “pi-electron clouds from alpha-linolenic acid (ALA, an omega 3 fatty acid) and linoleic acid (LA, omega 6) plus vitamin E in its natural complex, etheric oils and sulfhydryl groups.”However, they are not cheap, and thosewho choose to omit them should not be too concerned, since success was achieved before they were introduced to the protocol.


The BUDWIG PROTOCOL responds within days, but tumors may take several weeks or months to disappear -in the meantime you should not feel as ill as you do withradiation and chemotherapy, your hair does not drop out and you should be able to live a quality life

Chemicals, including those in medications can interfere with the BUDWIG PROTOCOL.  Includes growth-inhibiting drugs, barbiturates and analgesics

A cautionary word on taking large amounts of flax oil.   Dr. Budwig herself said that an excessive intake of flax oil WITHOUT the sulfurated protein (such as cottage cheese) can be dangerous. For example, there are some reports of how prostate cancer growth increased by those taking flax oil, but the men in these cases were not combining the oil with sulfurated protein, which enables the body to use the flax oil fats beneficially for oxygenating the body.

Overview of Budwig Meal Plan for Cancer or Serious Health Problems

The Budwig Meal Plan.  In addition to nutrition-packed whole foods, the following mixtures are consumed for a total daily intake of 4-8 Tbsp.flaxseed oil, depending on the severity of your problem:

•  Budwig flaxseed spread.  Added to vegetables and/or grains

•  Budwig dressing.  Made from flaxseed oil to dress salads or vegetables

•  The Standard Recipe.    LOW-FAT cottage cheese, yogurt and/or whey protein concentrate ) with perhaps a little honey, fresh fruit, garlic, cayenne, herbs, fresh squeezed fruit juice, ground flaxseeds, or a little water.

Daily Budwig Meal Plan for Cancer or other Serious Health Problems

Dr. Budwig advised that the following foods NOT be eaten on the Budwig meal Plan:

•  Sugar.   To reduce the cancer cells'food supply and slow down their production of lactic acid, which otherwise promotes an acidic environment in which cancer cells can prosper. Use fruit, fruit juice or a little honey for sweeteners.

•   Animal fats

•   Processed/Commercial/Typical Grocery-store Oils.  All salad oils including commercial mayonnaise, margarine; use only cold-pressed oils (usually obtained from a health-food store)

•  Meats.  Meat digestion uses up precious enzymes needed to break down fibrin coating on cancer cells so that the immune system can “get at”them.As you improve, organic meat from 100% grass-fed animals can be slowly introduced.

•   Foods containing chemical preservatives.    Preservatives block the metabolism of flaxseed oil's fatty acids.

BUDWIG PROTOCOL helps Cancer patients, even on their death-bed

It doesn't matter where cancer cells are located or what name is given to your cancer, since as Budwig explained,  her protocol gives cells the essential good fats/oils they need for them to normalize their function.

In one of her books, Dr. Budwig says: "I often take very sick cancer patients away from hospital where they are said to have only a few days left to live, or perhaps only a few hours. This is mostly accompanied by very good results. The very first thing that these patients and their families tell me is that, in the hospital, it was said that they could no longer urinate or produce bowel movements. They suffered from dry coughing without being able to bring up any mucous. Everything was blocked. It greatly encourages them when suddenly, the surface-active fats, with their wealth of electrons (from the flaxseed oil and cottage mixture and flaxseed oil enemas), start reactivating the vital functions and the patient immediately begins to feel better. . ...”
