How the Budwig Diet Protocol for Cancer Works
By Dr. David Jockers DC, MS, CSCS
Hippocrates might be credited with saying “Let food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food,” but biochemist Dr. Johanna Budwig is known for making this
belief a reality.
One of the top experts on fats and oils in the 1950s, Dr. Budwig found that the right combination of quark or cottage cheese and flaxseed oil has therapeutic
properties in preventing, treating, and even curing cancer. Known as the Budwig Diet, could this diet protocol beat cancer?
Dr. Budwig’s Discoveries
How did Dr. Budwig derive her understanding that this simple strategy has major therapeutic properties? While researching the pathogenesis of disease and illness
as a biochemist in Germany, Dr. Budwig observed that quark (a soft fresh cheese) contained the very same sulphydryl groups found in cancer treatment drugs.
These sulphydryl groups are cysteine and methionineamino acids.4
While researching fats and oils, Dr. Budwig further established that essential polyunsaturated fatty acids, referred to as PUFAs, are major components of cellular
membranes. Without a properly functioning cellular membrane, cells lose the ability to perform vital life processes such as cellular respiration and the ability
to divide and form new cells.
The two essential polyunsaturated fatty acids critical for cell membrane support are:
Linoleic Acid (LA): Better known as omega-6 fatty acids.
Linolenic Acid (LNA): Commonly referred to as omega-3 fatty acids. Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids have been recognized for their anticancer properties and
roles in preventing sickness and disease.
Cottage Cheese and Flaxseed Oil Work to Re-energize Cells
A chemical reaction takes place when the sulphydryl groups in very low fat quark or cottage cheese bind with the unsaturated fatty acids in cold pressed flaxseed oil.
This reaction allows the flaxseed oil to become water soluble and enter into a cell to supply energy.
The two components must be mixed very well, so that the reaction an take place.
Imagine the cells in your body are the same as the battery in a car. Our cells also require electrical energy in order to run and energize all of our life-giving
biological functions. In order for a dead car battery to be recharged, it requires jumper cables to supply an electrical current from a good battery.
The combination of quark or cottage cheese and flaxseed oil work together and function like jumper cables.
