Flaxseed oil and cottage cheese . .
Six time Nobel award nominated doctor says this
nutrient combination actually prevents and cures cancer!

author of "The Cancer Solution"
Dr. Johanna Budwig Mix:
Mix until creamy with your electric hand mixer (blenders may whip
too much air into the mix and oxidize the flax oil):
1 cup Organic 2% cottage cheese and 2-5 Tbsp. of flaxseed oil.
Make sure that you completely mix the cottage cheese and flax seed
oil before adding anything else. There is a synergetic effect that
is important. When this is creamy, you may add a little distilled or
spring water to thin the mix. Then add:
1-3 Tbsp. of
freshly ground up "Golden" flaxseeds (coffee grinder ($15) works fine)
and a little cayenne.
- Agave or honey
- little garlic little red pepper little champagne
- Make it very soft.
- Eat some of it every day.
- (P.S. Adjust quantities for your taste!)
Important: Flax oil must be fresh, kept in a dark bottle, and
refrigerated. After initially opening the bottle of flax oil to
remove the seal, you should not keep opening the bottle and allow
air in. One of the best flax oils and bottles are those sold by
Barlean's. You should always get the flax oil with lignans. Once
you have initially opened the bottle to remove the seal, never
remove the cap again. To dispense the oil, just turn the bottle
upside down, flip open the cap, and squeeze. This way, very little
air will get in the bottle.
THE BUDWIG FLAX OIL DIET
The Flaxseed (Linseed) oil diet was originally
proposed by Dr. Johanna Budwig, a German biochemist and expert on
fats and oils, in 1951 and recently re-examined by Dr. Dan C. Roehm
M.D. FACP (Oncologist and former cardiologist) in 1990. Dr. Roehm
claims: "this diet is far and away the most successful anti-cancer
diet in the world".
Budwig claims that the diet is both a
preventative and a curative. She says the absence of linol-acids [in
the average western diet] is responsible for the production of
oxydase, which induces cancer growth and is the cause of many other
The beneficial oxydase ferments are destroyed by
heating or boiling oils in foods, and by nitrates used for
preserving meat, etc.
The theory is: the use of oxygen in the organism
can be stimulated by protein compounds of sulphuric content, which
make oils water-soluble and which is present in cheese, nuts, onion
and leek vegetables such as leek, chive, onion and garlic, but
especially cottage cheese.
Ferments of cell respiration closely connected
with the highly unsaturated fatty acids, are also needed for proper
oxidation. It is essential to use only unrefined, cold-pressed oils
with high linolic acid content, such as linseed, sunflower, soya,
poppyseed, walnut, and corn oils. Such oil should be consumed
together with foods containing the right proteins otherwise the oils
will have the OPPOSITE EFFECT, causing more harm than good.
The best combination is cottage cheese and
linseed oil. The linseed should be freshly ground. Carbohydrates
containing natural sugar, such as dates, figs, pears, apples and
grapes, are also included in the diet. Honey is also beneficial.
Most of the synthetic vitamin A preparations are bad because they
contain oxidation products, but much carotine as provitamin A (from
carrot) is consumed. Vitamin B from buttermilk, yoghurt, and natural
yeast is beneficial.
A person requires daily about 4 oz. of cottage
cheese mixed well with 1.5 oz. of linseed oil and 1 oz. of milk. A
blender or egg beater works fine. The mixture an be sweeten with
honey or otherwise flavored naturally. Fresh fruits can be added.
Every morning 2 spoonfuls of freshly ground linseed oil should be
taken in luke warm buttermilk or yoghurt.
The diet is indicated for all kinds of chronic
diseases, especially heart ailments (corony thrombosis), gall
disorders, diabetes, arthritis, and malignancies. It improves
failing hearing and sight. It is the ideal nutrient for children and
infants. It is suggested that this diet be supplemented with lactic
acid ferments (4).
"What she (Dr. Johanna Budwig) has demonstrated
to my initial disbelief but lately, to my complete satisfaction in
my practice is: CANCER IS EASILY CURABLE, the treatment is
dietary/lifestyle, the response is immediate; the cancer cell is
weak and vulnerable; the precise biochemical breakdown point was
identified by her in 1951 and is specifically correctable, in vitro
(test-tube) as well as in vivo (real)... " (Roehm, "Townsend Letter
for Doctors", July 1990) GENERAL RULES
The patient has no nourishment on day #1 other
than 250 ml (8.5 oz) of Flax Oil with honey plus freshly squeezed
fruit juices (no sugar added!). In the case of a very ill person,
champagne may be added on the first day in place of juice and is
taken with the Flax Oil and honey. Champagne is easily absorbable
and has a serious purpose here.
SUGAR IS ABSOLUTELY FORBIDDEN. Grape juice
may be added to sweeten any other freshly squeezed juices.
Other 'forbiddens' are: All animal fats. -
All Salad Oils (this included commercial mayonnaise) - All Meats
(chemicals & hormones) - Butter - Margarine - Preserved Meats
(the preservatives block metabolism even of Flax Oil)
Freshly squeezed vegetable juices are fine -
carrot, celery, apple, and red beet.
Three times daily a warm tea is essential -
peppermint, rose hips or grape tea - all sweetened as desired
with honey. One cup of black tea before noon is fine.
Before breakfast - a glass of Acidophilus milk or
Sauerkraut juice is taken.
Breakfast - Muesli (regular cereal) is overlaid
with 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of Flax Oil and honey and fresh fruit
according to season - berries, cherries, apricots, peaches, grated
apple. Vary the flavor from day to day. Use any nuts except peanuts!
Herbal teas as desired or black tea. A 4 oz (120 g) serving of THE
SPREAD (directions below). This is fine to eat 'straight' like a
custard, or add it to other foods taken in the day as you will see.
Morning tea (10am) - A glass of fresh carrot
juice, apple, celery, or beet-apple juice is taken.
Lunch - Raw salad with yoghurt-Flax Oil
Mayonnaise (directions below). In addition to 'greens' salads, use
grated turnips, carrots, kohlrabi, radishes, sauerkraut or
cauliflower. A fine powder of horseradish, chives or parsley may be
added for flavor.
Cooked Meal Course - Steamed vegetables,
potatoes, or such grains as rice, buck-wheat or millet may be
served. to these add either THE SPREAD or THE MAYO - for flavor and
to up your intake of Flax Oil. Also mix THE SPREAD with potatoes for
an especially hearty meal. Add caraway, chives, parsley or other
Dessert - Mix fresh fruit other than those used
for breakfast with THE SPREAD, this time (instead of honey),
flavored using cream of lemon, vanilla or berries.
Afternoon Tea (4pm) - A small glass of natural
wine (no preservatives) or champagne or fresh fruit juice with 1-2
tablespoons of honey-coated Fax Seeds.
Supper - Have this early, at 6pm. Make a hot meal
using buckwheat, oat or soy cakes. grits from buckwheat are the very
best and can be placed in a vegetable soup, or in a more solid form
of cakes with herbal sauce. Sweet sauces & soups can always be given
far more healing energy by adding THE SPREAD. Only honey or grape
juice can be used for sweeteners. NO white sugar (or brown!) Only
freshly squeezed juices and NOT reconstituted juices (preservative
danger) may be used. These must be completely natural.
How to prepare 'THE SPREAD'
Place 250 ml (8.5 oz) Flax Oil into a mixer bowl
and add one pound (450 g) of 1% Cottage Cheese (ie low fat eg Quark)
and add 4 tablespoons (60 ml) of Honey. Turn on the mixer and add
just enough low fat milk or water to get the contents of the bowl to
blend in together. In 5 minutes, a preparation of custard
consistency results that has NO taste of the oil (and no oily 'ring'
should be seen when you rinse out the bowl).
Alternatively, you can use Yoghurt instead of
Cottage Cheese in proportions of 1 oz (30 g) of Yoghurt to 1
tablespoon (15 ml) each of Flax Oil and of honey and blend as above.
NOTE: When Flax Oil is blended like this, it does
not cause diarrhea even when given in large amounts. It reacts
chemically with the (sulphur) proteins of the cottage cheese,
How to prepare 'THE MAYO' (Mayonnaise):
Mix together 2 tablespoons (30 ml) Flax Oil, 2
tablespoons (30 ml) milk, and 2 tablespoons (30 ml) Yoghurt.
Then add 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of Lemon juice (or
Apple Cider Vinegar) and add 1 teaspoon (2.5g) Mustard plus some
herbs such as marjoram or dill.
Next add 2 or 3 slices of health food store
pickles (no preservatives! - read label!) and a pinch of herbal
(The above mayonnaise plus lots of mustard and a
few bananas is very tasty!)
Concluding remarks by Dr. Roehm - "I only wish
that all my patients had a PhD in Biochemistry and Quantum Physics
to enable them to see how with such consummate skill this diet was
put together. It is a wonder. The champagne vehicle IS easier to
assimilate and get someone almost on their death-bed going again. A
retention enema of 250 ml (8.5 oz) of oil is another route to get
this precious life-furthering, ELECTRON-RICH oil into the body. It
can also be applied to the skin for transdermal absorption. I'll
answer your questions and give you "special orders" for you
You will have to remain on this diet for a good 5
years, at which time your tumour may have disappeared. Persons who
break the rules of this diet, Dr Budwig reports, (ie eating
preserved meats, candy, etc) will sometimes grow rapidly worse and
cannot be saved after they come back from their spree (bon-bons mean
In 1967, Dr Budwig broadcast the following
sentence during an interview over the South German Radio Network,
describing her incoming patients with failed operations and x-ray
"Even in these cases it is possible to restore
health in a few months at most, I would truly say 90% of the time".
"This has never been contradicted, but this
knowledge has been a long time reaching this side of the ocean,
hasn't it? Cancer treatment can be very simple and very successful
once you know how. The cancer interests don't want you to know this.
May those of you who have suffered from this
disease (and I include your family and friends in this) forgive the
miscreants who have kept this simple information from reaching you
for so long".

"The best, purest, most carefully prepared Flax
Oil in America is, in my opinion", said Roehm, "is Omegaflo.
Arrowhead mills label is most often seen in Florida (USA). Look for
"FLAX (LINSEED) OIL is readily denatured by
oxygen, heat, and light. That's why it is used in paint. Rancid oil
is bad for health, so oil MUST be carefully produced, packed under
nitrogen in light-proof containers, refrigerated until used, used as
fresh as possible, and stabilised with protein (THE SPREAD, etc)
promptly once the container is opened..."
Flax Seeds may also be used. Seeds need only be
cracked in a food blender, or they may be ground in a coffee
grinder. One needs three times the amount of seed to get the oil
equivalent. Seeds are high in calories, so one may gain weight. The
seeds are also high in soluble fibre, so blending with liquid tends
to produce ever-hardening "jellies". Fresh-cracked seed sprinkled on
muesli & eaten promptly tastes great.
Ed McCabe (p85, "Oxygen Therapies") discusses his
point of view on essential fatty acids:
"The red blood cells in the lungs give up carbon
dioxide and take on oxygen. They are then transported to the cell
site via the blood vessels, where, they release their oxygen into
the plasma. This released oxygen is "attracted" to the cells by the
"resonance" of the pi-electron" oxidation-enhancing fatty acids.
Otherwise, oxygen cannot work its way into the cell. "Electron rich
fatty acids" play the decisive role in "respiratory enzymes, which
are the basis of cell oxidation...".
"Dont eat anything hydrogenated like (like
margarine, or fried foods) as it defeats oxygenation. Avoid products
that say "hydrogenated".
"We should eat essential polyunsaturated fatty
acids to enhance oxygenation. They can be found naturally in
Carotene, Saffron, and Flaxseed oil."

Who is Dr. Johanna Budwig?
Dr. Johanna Budwig is known and highly respected
around the world as Germany's premier biochemist. In addition, Dr.
Budwig holds a Ph.D. in Natural Science, has undergone medical
training, and was schooled in pharmaceutical science, physics,
botany and biology. In all courses, this brilliant scientist
She is best known for her extensive research on
the properties and benefits of flaxseed oil combined with
sulphurated proteins in the diet, and over the years has published a
number of books on the subject, including "Cancer--A Fat Problem,"
"The Death of the Tumor," and "True Health Against Arteriosclerosis,
Heart Infarction & Cancer."
Dr. Budwig has assisted many seriously ill
individuals, even those given up as terminal by orthodox medical
practitioners, to regain their health through a simple regimen of
nutrition. The basis of Dr. Budwig's program is the use of flaxseed
oil blended with low-fat cottage cheese.
In the mid 1950's, Dr. Budwig began her long and
meticulous research on the importance of essential fatty acids (linoleic
and linolenic) in the diet. Her subsequent discoveries and
announcements sparked mixed reactions. While the general public was
eager for this astounding information, German manufacturers of
commercial dietary fats (margarine, hard shortening, vegetable oils)
went to extremes to prevent her from publishing her findings.
Fortunately, while Dr. Budwig's vital announcements were initially
met with resistance backed by those with financial stakes in the
commercial fats industry, her persistence paid off. Today, Dr.
Johanna Budwig is world renowned for her important discoveries on
the benefits of flaxseed oil. Her fame precedes her as she lectures
all over Europe.
Fats-Good and Bad Dr. Johanna preaches against
the use of what she calls "pseudo" fats. In order to extend the
shelf life of their products, manufacturers use chemical processes
that render their food products harmful to the body. These harmful
fats go by a number of names, including "hydrogenated," "partially
hydrogenated" and even "polyunsaturated."
The chemical processing of fats destroys the
vital electron cloud within the fat. Once the electrons have been
removed, these fats can no longer bind with oxygen, and they
actually become a harmful substance deposited within the body. The
heart, for instance, rejects these fats and they end up as inorganic
fatty deposits on the heart muscle itself.
Chemically processed fats are not water-soluble
when bound to protein. They end up blocking circulation, damage
heart action, inhibit cell renewal and impede the free flow of blood
and lymph fluids. The bio-electrical action in these areas slows
down and may become completely paralyzed. The entire organism shows
a measurable loss of electrical energy which is replenished only by
adding active lipids to the diet. These nutritional fats are truly
vital for man and beast alike.
Science has proven that fats play an important
role in the functioning of the entire body. Fats (lipids) are vital
for all growth processing, renewal of cells, brain and nerve
functions, even for the sensory organs (eyes and ears), and for the
body's adjustment to heat, cold and quick temperature changes. Our
energy resources are based on lipid metabolism. To function
efficiently, cells require true polyunsaturated, live electron-rich
lipids, present in abundance in raw flaxseed oil. True
polyunsaturated fats greedily absorb proteins and oxygen and pump
them through the system.
Lipids are only water-soluble and free-flowing
when bound to protein; thus the importance of protein-rich cottage
cheese. When high quality, electron-rich fats are combined with
proteins, the electrons are protected until the body requires
energy. This energy source is then fully and immediately available
to the body on demand, as nature intended.
Proven Benefits Still Pouring In Since Dr.
Johanna Budwig's findings on the benefits of flaxseed oil have been
widely publicized, scientists around the world have eagerly jumped
on the bandwagon. Studies conducted using flaxseed oil on numerous
disorders have been pouring in from all over the world, showing
impressive results, including anti-tumor activity, increased
metabolism, greatly boosted immune system, reduced cholesterol
levels, normalized blood pressure levels and inhibition of cancer
cell growth. Books research reports, articles and testimonials
abound, all touting the healthy benefits achieved by supplementing
the diet with organic, raw, cold-pressed flaxseed oil with low-fat
cottage cheese. Dr. Budwig's research was based on using the ratio
of 2 tablespoons flaxseed oil mixed with one-quarter cup of low fat
Backed with all this extensive research, the
indisputable fact is: Supplementing your diet daily with flaxseed
oil combined with sulphurated proteins could very well be the most
important thing you do for yourself every day.
A top European cancer research scientist, Dr
Johanna Budwig, has discovered a totally natural formula that not
only protects against the development of cancer but people all over
the world who have been diagnosed with incurable cancer and sent
home to die have actually been cured and now lead normal healthy
After three decades of research Dr. Budwig,
sixtime nominee for the Nobel Award, found that the blood of
seriously ill cancer patients was always, without exception,
deficient in certain important essential ingredients which included
substances called phosphatides and lipoproteins. (The blood of a
healthy person always contains sufficient quantities of these
essential ingredients. However, without these natural ingredients
cancer cells grow wild and out of control.)
Blood analysis showed a strange greenish-yellow
substance in place of the healthy red oxygen carrying hemoglobin
that belongs there. This explained why cancer patients weaken and
become anemic This startling discovery led Dr. Budwig to test her
She found that when these natural ingredients
where replaced over approximately a three month period, tumors
gradually receded. The strange greenish elements in the blood were
replaced with healthy red blood cells as the phosphatides and
lipoproteins almost miraculously reappeared. Weakness and anemia
disappeared and life energy was restored. Symptoms of cancer, liver
dysfunction and diabetes were completely alleviated.
Dr. Budwig then discovered an all natural way for
people to replace those essential ingredients their bodies so
desperately needed in their daily diet. By simply eating a
combination of just two natural and delicious foods not only can
cancer be prevented but in case after case it was actually cured.
(These two natural foods, organic flax seed oil & cottage cheese)
must be eaten together to be effective since one triggers the
properties of the other to be released.)
After more than 10 years of solid clinical
application, Dr. Budwig's natural formula has proven successful
where many orthodox remedies have failed. Dr. Budwig's formula has
been used therapeutically in Europe for prevention of: Cancer!
Arteriosclerosis, Strokes, Cardiac Infarction, Heartbeat
(irregular), Liver (fatty degeneration), Lungs (reduces bronchial
spasms), Intestines (regulates activity). Stomach Ulcers (normalizes
gastric juices), Prostate (hypertopic), Arthritis (exerts a
favorable influence), Eczema (assists all skin diseases), Old age
(improves many common afflictions), Brain (strenghthens activity),
Immune Deficiency Syndromes (multiple sclerosis, autoimmune
Thousands have flocked to hear Dr. Budwig lecture
all over Europe. The many people Dr. Budwig's formula has helped
testify to the benefits of her remarkable discovery. Following are a
few examples: In one of my interviews with Dr. Budwig I was
introduced to Siegried Ernst, M.D.. He is a rare and dedicated man
who counts among his personal friends the current Pope as well as
many other dignitaries.
Seventeen years ago Dr. Ernst had developed
cancer for which he had major surgery requiring removal of his
stomach. Two years later he had a recurrence of the cancer and was
offered chemotherapy as the only available remedy. There was little
hope for survival as virtually all individuals with recurrence of
this type of cancer rarely last a year. Dr. Ernst knew that
chemotherapy was not only ineffective for his type of cancer but
completaly destructive of the quality of life, so he refused. He
turned to Dr. Budwig and her formula for help. He religiously
followed Dr. Budwig's formula and fifteen years later has not had
any recurrence of cancer. As a matter of fact he seemed to me to be
in perfect health and is tireless for a man in his late seventies.
Maria W. tells her story in her own words: "I was
told by the most expert of doctors that I would have to be operated
on to cut out the cancerous tumor that was causing a swelling under
my eye. They explained that the size of the tumor was much greater
inside and that there was very serious bone involvement. The
malignancy was too far advanced to respond to radiation treatment.
The doctors planned to remove considerable facial tissue and bone. I
was afraid for my life, but being a young woman, couldn't bear the
thought of such disfigurement.
When I heard about Dr. Budwig's natural formula,
I was skeptical but desperate for help. After four months on this
regimen, the swelling under my left eye completely disappeared. The
doctors at the University hospital gave me many exhausting tests.
One told me, 'If I didn't have your previous x-rays and medical
history in front of me, I wouldn't believe that you ever had cancer.
There is hardly any indication of a tumor remaining.' I never
thought using Dr, Budwig's formula would be so successful. My whole
family and I are very grateful."
An examination of Sandy A. revealed arachnoidal
bleeding due to an inoperable brain tumor. The doctors informed
Sandy that he was beyond medical help. At his expressed wish, Sandy
was discharged from the hospital and sent home to die in peace.
A friend brought Dr. Budwig’s formula to Sandy’s
attention. Sandy writes. “Since I went on the Budwig regimen, the
paralysis is of my eyes, arms, and legs has receded daily. After
only a short period of time, I was able to urinate normally. My
health improved so rapidly that I was soon able to return to my work
part-time. Shortly after that, I was again examined at the Research
Center and my reflexes were completely normal. The Budwig diet saved
my life! Ten years later, I was given a thorough examination at the
Center as a follow-up. My incredible recovery has been written up In
many medical journals and I have become what they call a 'textbook
case,' and all because of Dr. Johanna Budwig's simple diet."
Seven years ago Timmy G. was diagnosed as having
Hodgkins disease. The child was operated on and underwent 24
radiation treatments, plus additional experimental therapies that
the experts hoped would be of some small help. When Timmy failed to
respond favorably to these heroic measures, he was discharged as
incurable, and given six months to live and sent home to die. The
desperate parents contacted specialists all over the world. A famous
newspaper took up Timmy's cause and ran editorials pleading for
someone to come forth who could offer hope for the life of a child.
All the specialists who replied confirmed the cruel prognosis: There
was no hope or help for Timmy.
At this dark hour the miracle the family had
prayed for happened! Timmy's mother told her story to the press: "A
friend sent me a printed piece about one of Dr. Budwig's speeches.
This material gave us hope and I contacted Dr. Budwig. In just five
days, (on the Budwig regimen) Timmy's breathing became normal for
the first lime In almost two years.
From this day on, Timmy began to feel good again.
He went back to school, started swimming and by winter he was doing
craft work. Everyone who knows him says how well he looks." At age
18 Timmy is showing great promise in his university work. He knows
he owes his life to Dr. Budwig and thanks her daily in his prayers.
One of the two foods in on Budwig's formula, cottage cheese, is
available in nearly every grocery store in America. The other, pure
organic linseed oil, however comes primarily from Europe and can
only be found in certain health food stores throughout the United
By simply mixing these two delicious foods
together and eating them you will be providing yourself and your
family with the optimal preventive nutritional protection against
cancer and other disease.
Today, fresh expeller pressed flaxseed oil is
available in most countries in the world, including USA and Europe.
