In 1952, Johanna Budwig, Ph.D first described her Budwig Diet or Budwig Protocol as an effective way to address the nutritional deficiencies she believed led to the growth of cancerous tumors. Over the succeeding decades, her own and followers' findings claimed a better than 80% effectiveness rate in reducing the size and symptoms of tumors with several common forms of cancer.
The Budwig Diet at its core is extremely simple. Flaxseed and cottage cheese are consumed regularly to provide the body with lipoproteins and phosphatides, a healthy supply of which can allow the body to heal itself--reducing tumor size and even curing cancer completely.
Some clinical studies have supported the use of flaxseed against specific cancers, and the diet is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which have been found to have numerous health benefits.
Natural Cures: The Budwig Diet is recommended for prostate cancer, breast cancer, bone and lung cancers among a long list of other cancerous conditions. Additionally, the protocol is said to improve cardiac health and can fight diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and arthritis.
I researched the Budwig Protocol after I read about on a yahoo group about 4 years ago. To help control my asthma AND terrible psoriasis. I consumed the foundation meal (flaxseed oil/cottage cheese - focc) religiously for 5 months. My psoriasis totally cleared and my asthma improved immensely. This diet, once you get used to it, helps many conditions but is used primarily for cancer. This is a "great anti-inflammatory diet."
Till this day, I eat it 3 to 4 times a week for breakfast. Be sure to follow the exact guidelines if you are on a quest to cure cancer. Also, be careful to stop consuming "focc" 3 to 4 days before any surgeries as it thins your blood nicely. I am a true believer in this diet as a "cancer preventative".
