Sometimes the simplest things work the best
If you have cancer or know someone who is fighting cancer you should READ THIS.
My husband is fighting kidney cancer and I recently found out about this healthy disease fighting protocol that’s been around since before I was born. It’s called the Budwig Diet (but it’s not really a diet per se). My brother Brad King (a nutritional researcher, best selling author & keynote speaker) first told us about this. After reading up and learning more about it I decided to add it to his morning health ritual and mine too, as a preventative. After all, it comes from an excellent source and is backed by scientific research.
I’m not very good with science or chemistry however this makes sense even to me. It made perfect sense to my husband who has a natural knack for both chemistry and science. It’s worth trying out. And it costs very little.
You’ll need two kitchen essentials: a coffee grinder + an immersion blender (the electric hand-held kind). You’ll need three food items: organic cottage cheese (the best you can find with bacterial culture) or; you can substitute organic goat kefir for those who have a problem with cottage cheese, organic unrefined flax seed oil (I use Flora) and organic whole brown flaxseeds (I use 365 whole foods brand). Whatever kind you buy make sure they do not contain added lignans). Brown flaxseeds are cheaper than golden and better for you because they have the husk and contain less lignans.
First off, who the hell is Dr. Budwig?
Dr. Johanna Budwig was a seven-time Nobel Prize nominee. She was a top European cancer research scientist, biochemist, blood specialist, pharmacologist, and physicist.
Dr. Budwig was born in Germany in 1908. She passed away in 2003 at the age of 95.
In Germany in 1952, she was the central government’s senior expert for fats and pharmaceutical drugs. She’s considered one of the world’s leading authorities on fats and oils. Her research has shown the tremendous effects that commercially processed fats and oils have in destroying cell membranes and lowering the voltage in the cells of our bodies, which then result in chronic and terminal disease. What we have forgotten is that we are body electric.
Our Bodies & Our Brain
Most people do not realize that the dry weight of the human brain is sixty percent fat. Many of these fats are of the unsaturated variety and this protocol is what helps the brain function optimally.
This process requires the highly unsaturated, particularly electron-rich fatty acids found in a type of omega-3 fat called ALA (ALPHA–LINOLENIC ACID) of which flax seed oil is one of the highest sources of.
The Budwig diet appears to allow cancer cells to start breathing again.
This has to be one of the greatest discoveries ever made as this combination promotes healing in the body of chronic and terminal diseases. In her book, Dr. Budwig states “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.”
The mixing of the oil and cottage cheese allows for the chemical reaction to take place between the sulfur protein in the cottage cheese and the oil, which makes the oil water soluble for easy absorption into your cells.
The cells of our body fire electrically. They have a nucleus in the center of the cell which is positively charged, and the cell membrane, which is the outer lining of the cell, is negatively charged. We are all aware of how fats clog up our veins and arteries and are the leading cause of heart attacks, but we never looked beyond the end of our noses to see how these very dangerous fats and oils are affecting the overall health of our minds and bodies at the cellular level.
Dr. Budwig discovered that when unsaturated fats have been chemically treated, their unsaturated qualities are destroyed and the field of electrons removed. This commercial processing of fats destroys the field of electrons that the cell membranes (60-75 trillion cells) in our bodies must have to fire properly (i.e. function properly).
The fats’ ability to associate with protein and thereby to achieve water solubility in the fluids of the living body—all this is destroyed. As Dr. Budwig put it, “the battery is dead because the electrons in these fats and oils recharge it.” 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.
Without the proper metabolism of fats in our bodies, every vital function and every organ is affected. This includes the generation of new life and new cells. Our bodies produce over 500 million new cells daily. Dr. Budwig points out that in growing new cells, there is a polarity between the electrically positive nucleus and the electrically negative cell membrane with its high unsaturated fatty acids. During cell division, the cell, and new daughter cell must contain enough electron-rich fatty acids in the cell’s surface area to divide off completely from the old cell. When this process is interrupted the body begins to die. In essence, these commercially processed fats and oils are shutting down the electrical field of the cells allowing chronic and terminal diseases to take hold of our bodies.
A very good example would be tumors. Dr. Budwig noted that “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 polarity 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.”
She pointed out that this can be reversed by providing the simple foods, cottage cheese, and flax seed oil, which revises the stagnated growth processes. This naturally causes the tumor or tumors present to dissolve and the whole range of symptoms which indicate a “dead battery are cured.” Dr. Budwig did not believe in the use of growth-inhibiting treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation. She was quoted as saying “I flat declare that the usual hospital treatments today, in a case of tumorous growth, most certainly leads to worsening of the disease or a speedier death, and in healthy people, quickly causes cancer.”
Dr. Budwig discovered that when she combined flaxseed oil, with its powerful healing nature of essential electron rich unsaturated fats, and cottage cheese, which is rich in sulfur protein, the chemical reaction produced makes the oil water soluble and easily absorbed into the cell membrane.
The Budwig Protocol
The mixing ratio is two tablespoons of cottage cheese to one tablespoon of oil. Mix only the amount you are consuming at one time so it is mixed fresh each and every time. One example would be to mix (4) tablespoons of cottage cheese to (2) tablespoons of flax oil, consumed twice daily or more depending on the severity of the health condition, one is attempting to address. One should probably start slowly with the oil, maybe just once a day and work their way up letting the body adjust to the protocol. The oil and the cottage cheese must be thoroughly mixed at a low speed, using an Immersion Blender, blending until a creamy texture with no standing oil is achieved.
The mixture should then be immediately consumed.
Do not add anything to the mixture until after it is mixed.
Then you mix in by hand two tablespoons of freshly ground flaxseed over the top of the freshly mixed flax oil and cottage cheese mixture. This supercharges the protocol. Do not buy pre-ground flax seed as the flax seed goes rancid 15 minutes after grinding. You may grind up the fresh flax seed with a small coffee grinder.
Then place in bowl, mix fresh berries over top (raspberries, blueberries + blackberries are best), chopped walnuts and/or brazil nuts (brazil nuts contain selenium), a little cinnamon and a bit of organic raw honey if you feel you need to sweeten it slightly.
You can mix it up a bit. I’ve tried probiotic goat milk Kefir instead of the cottage cheese and I’ve also tried mixing half cottage cheese & half Kefir so the consistency is not so thick. Also a bit of turmeric, cinnamon…
Also here is a very good YouTube video which actually shows how to make the flax oil and cottage cheese mixture correctly. When starting the protocol you would not want to make such a large amount at first, as shown in the video.
