10/31/2009: Lisa from Atlanta, Georgia, USA: "I have never had cancer and don't want it. I have read all of Johanna Budwigs books and they are facinating. She recommends eating this mixture once a day as a preventative measure. I have been eating this once a day either for breakfast or as a desert and it is delicious! I would recommend that everyone look this up by following the link to the yahoo group that someone posted here.She also recommended saurkraut juice first thing in the a.m., which is why everyone is having great success with the acv, I believe. And sunlight, everyday. No sunscreen! You don't need to bake in it, just a healthy amount of sunshine. Light excercise like walking, is beneficial (if you are not too sick). And vegetables, vegetables, vegetables! Both raw and cooked. I eat about 8 ounces of protein (meat) a day because I feel better when i do, but I am a healthy person, if you are sick, no meat that includes fish. I recommend that people buy one of her books, the woman was brilliant! She was not only a scientist, but a pharmacist, doctor and more, because she needed first hand knowledge of these sectors. I hope this helps someone who is desperate for answers. Lisa"

04/04/2009: Charles from Willingboro, New Jersey USA: "I would like to try the Budwig Diet. I've had success with the The Grape Cure I used it for high blood pressure, but was unable to last longer than 3 weeks. It really worked and reduced my blood pressure from 180/140 down to 120/80 in three weeks, but shortly thereafter I faltered and began eating a regular American Diet again which has caused it to rise once again. Please send me the specific protocol so that I may give this regime a try and see if it can help with my blood pressure. Thank you ever so much. Stay well, Charles"
04/03/2009: Lloyd from Torremolinos, Malaga, Spain: "I personally visited Dr. Johanna Budwig in Germany in the year 2000. She passed away in 2003 at the age of 95 from a fall. Dr. Budwig was nominated 7 times for the Nobel Prize Dr.Budwig had over a 90% success rate with this protocol with all kinds of cancer patients over a 50 year period. Dr. Budwig worked with many patients who were terminally ill and some who had only hours to live. Dr. Budwig explained in her books that her healing plan works on improving the cells of the body. It doesn't matter where the cancer cells are located or what name if given to your cancer because the Budwig program gives cells what is needed in order for them to normalize in their functioning process. Her approach successfully treated the cause of all types of cancer, such as breast cancer, lung cancer, brain cancer, prostate cancer, Bone cancer, Carcinoma, bladder cancer, cervical cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, Leukemia, Hodgkin's disease, skin cancer, etc., and other common serious illnesses such as such as Arthritis, Asthma, Fibromyalgia, Diabetes, Blood Pressure, Multiple sclerosis, Heart Disease, Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne, and so on. She used a unique formula of cold pressed flaxseed oil and low fat cottage cheese with a little honey. Many people of heard of Dr. Budwig and may even have tried to follow her recipe. However unfortunately there is a lot of misinformation on her protocol on the Internet and if it is not followed exactly as she discovered and explained in her research the results could be very disappointing. As I obtained copies of all her research and have shared it with many others todate I would be happy to share her exact formula with any who request it on this forum. I often write about Dr. Budwigs formula for a local English Newspaper here in Southern Spain.

[YEA] 07/22/2007: Mare from St. Louis, MO: "You need to find out about the Budwig Diet. Read the information at www.cancertutor.com/Cancer/Budwig.html.
Dr. Johanna Budwig was the foremost expert in the world on fats and oils. She was able to heal people even from their deathbeds using flaxseed oil and cottage cheese. (It's all about the electrons!) She also recommends veggies and fruit. (no meats, animal fats, or sugar.) She lived into her 90's. and was a nominee for the nobel prize many times. Earth Clinic should be all over this one. It helps all sorts of diseases, Heart Infarction. arthritis, cancer etc, and is good for athletic performance and in fact, the whole family. I have done oil pulling for only a short time and it has helped the floaters in my eye get smaller & less dark. (they were the result of a burst capillary.)"

12/26/2011: Allie from Aurora, Co: "Our angel baby, Schugar had this tumor on her spleen too. She left us on 12/10/11.. But I think that it was secondary to another cancer possibly her liver? She was an 8 1/2 yo pug that I loved with my entire being...
She showed no symptoms other than on Nov 16, the inside of her ears were super RED and then a bright red scratch appeared on her tongue and spots followed. The Vet sent us home with Mometamax and told me to pick up some Benadryl in the event she was having allergies. It cleared up, then on 12/02 the spots came back, called the vet and was told to rinse her mouth w/hydrogen peroxide and water & to call on Monday if she did not get better... The spots started to turn black but I took her to the Vet anyway... He thought that maybe she had "Immune Mediated" disease put her on steroids and an antibiotic "in case" she had an infection. No blood draws, no x-rays, nothing. That was on 12/05.. I told hubby that I was giving it until Wed to see improvement and would ask for a referral to a specialist.
I did not see improvement, and a dear friend told me about a vet about 100 miles away. Drove her up on 12/08 (thurs).. She did several tests (and mentioned something about the BROWN tinge in her black fur... ????) She wanted to do an ultrasound as well... Of course, of course! she found the mass on her spleen and her liver looked "mothy"... So we scheduled to have the surgery for the next day. We got home that evening and her back legs got "wobbly" or weak (I might add that she was bruising EVERYWHERE)... So we rushed her to the Emergency Hospital, where we were told about the hemangioscarcoma... So blood transfusions and even some chemo... It was not enough for her poor little body... we said goodbye on 12/10...
HOW DOES THIS START? What could I have done differently??? My heart is shattered... She did have her baby vaccinations but we did not do anything after that until this last January when we lost another pug... I was frantic and had our two remaining puggies given the once over... I also want to add that Schugar had "bad" teeth... I would brush them and even scale them myself, between dental vet cleaning... I think this might have been a sign of illness as well. From Jan to Nov, she lost almost 4 lbs, but was eating well and probably more than usual... I am not a Vet by any stretch but should some of these things been SIGNALS???? ugh!!"
12/05/2011: Courtney from Fairhope, Alabama, Usa: "Hi Kirsten, I have a 4 yr. old boxer with same cancer and he has huge tumor on his side, we are using the same protocol but would love to discuss further with you. Many thanks, Courtney"
11/06/2011: Csingleton24 from Mandeville, Louisiana, Usa: "I just found out my dog has cancer. I have spent many hours researching the best way to combat this issue. I see that ACV and Budwigs Protocal are highly recommended. My question is can I do both of these at the same time? Also, will there be any reactions with his current meds the vet gave him (antibiotics and steroids)? I am also cutting out all dry foods and grains and will be making his own organic foods (chicken, organs, etc).
Thanks for any and all answers in advance.
10/24/2011: Kerstin from Emeryville, Ca, Usa: "In February this year 2011, I had to bring my 8 year old Great Dane to UC Davis emergency and they found a huge mass on his spleen. They did surgery on him and removed his spleen and he was diagnosed with hemangioscarcoma and told me without chemo he would have 19 days to 2 months to live and with chemo 5 to 6 months.
At the time I was in a state of shock and agreed to do chemo but after doing some research and seeing what my poor dog had to go through (5 people holding him down and him crying howling 30 minutes straight!! ) Anyway, long story short, I decided to hell with chemo, I'd rather see him live a quality life for a shorter time than live longer in misery.
When researching the internet I came across "the Budwig Protocol". Basically what it is is Organic Flaxseed Oil (the kind you find in a bottle @ Whole Food's refridgerated section) and Organic Cottage Cheese Lowfat.
I hope you will check in to this because all I know is that it's been 8 months now since my Great Dane was given max 2 months to live and he is doing GREAT!!
Twice a day I give it to him and I will continue doing so all his life. In addition to the cottage cheese and flaxseedoil, I feed him raw meat (chicken turkey necks tripe etc) supplements like Glutamine, Arginine (spelling?), milkthistle, garlic, multi vitamin). What I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT feed him is dryfood, carbohydrates, rice, processed food etc.
I think the reason for his Hemangiosarcoma has to do with genetics and the toxic environment we live in but I blame in particular all the vaccinations that I unfortunately gave him the first years of his life. If I knew then what I know now.. but I didn't.
I have come across a Great Dane breeder who has a litter of puppies that are 4th generation with no vaccinations! That is the way to go! In the meantime I am loving and appreciating every single day that I get to enjoy with my wonderful companion!
Good Luck! Oh by the way, I have started the Budwig Protocol myself to hopefully prevent any future cancer or other desease.
Yes please do your own research! You will not regret it!
11/04/2011: Ferman from Aumsville, Oregon: "I have had prostrate cancer and leukemia for over 20 years and have kept both in control with the Budwig diet. One thing many have overlooked is that the purpose of mixing the cottage cheese and oil is to make the oil water soluble so it can be absorbed. I don't know how many people I have talked to who do not add any water. I use 1-2 TBS flax seed oil with 3 heaping TBS of cottage cheese 3-4 large strawberries and enough water to make as thick as thin milkshake. (if you use a Magic Bullet Mixer this makes 1 container full) if berries are not to sweet add a little stevia (stevia by the way is only sweetener that is alkaline)
Good Health To All,
Ferman Aumsville, OR"
[YEA] 10/18/2005: Ron from Johnson City, TN: "How I Reduced My PSA Level by over 50% without Prescription Drugs: From November 1998 to early November 1999, my PSA level climbed from 1.7 to 5.1, and a month later jumped to 6.15. My doctor made an appointment with a urologist, who said that my prostate was slightly enlarged and scheduled me for a biopsy to test for prostate cancer in early December 1999. During my discussion with the urologist, he indicated that there was considerable research that showed a high correlation between consumption of red meat and that of cancer, in general, including prostate cancer.
In the meantime, I became aware of the work of Dr. Johanna Budwig, a German biochemist and Nobel prize nominee, who did extensive research in the benefits of flaxseed oil combined with sulphurated protein in the diet. She helped many seriously ill individuals, who had been given up as terminal, to regain their health. The program that she used was flaxseed oil blended with quark, the German form of cottage cheese.
In early December 1999, I began a program of flaxseed oil and low fat cottage cheese. Specifically, in the morning, I took five doses, each consisting of two 1,000 mg softgels of flaxseed oil with one teaspoon of low fat cottage cheese. I repeated this in the evening, so that my total daily dosage was twenty softgels of flaxseed oil and ten teaspoons of low fat cottage cheese. In the one year since I began this program, my PSA level has dropped from 6.15 to 2.4. I have now reduced my total daily dosage to two softgels of flaxseed oil and one teaspoon of low fat cottage cheese.
The source for the flaxseed oil that I used is Nature's Distributors, Inc., phone number 1-800-624-7114, or on the internet at www.naturesdistributors.com. This company often sells many of their products at a 2 for 1 price. If you call them, ask about their new Vita-Flax product, which is available in 1 lb. containers. This product is not only more economical, but it also replaces both the flaxseed oil AND the cottage cheese. It is also claimed to be superior in many ways to the flaxseed oil, since it is lower in fat and is rich in soluble fiber and also contains lignans, which reportedly have significant anti-cancer properties.
CONCLUSION: In my case, I was able to reduce my PSA level by over 50% without surgery or prescription drugs. The only change that I made besides the program described above is that I reduced my intake of red meat in favor of fish and poultry."
