This health boosting protocol was developed by doctor Johanna Budwig — a German biochemist and author. Budwig was a pharmacist and held doctorate degrees in physics and chemistry. Backed by her research on fatty acids, she produced a diet that she believed was useful in treating cancer.
Also: ALWAYS use organic everything whenever possible, always grind the flaxseed daily. Never buy pre ground flax seed. Organic turmeric, ground ginger & blackpepper
are things I like stirring in. Also Dr. Budwig also recommended taking 2 Tablespoons of
ground flaxseed mixed with 1 teaspoon of raw organic honey – then have a teaspoon of
that mixture throughout the day when you do your budwig meal of the cottage cheese
and flaxseed oil. Also if you use kefir you may need more of it than cottage cheese because it usually has less protein than cottage cheese (so may be 5-6 ounces of kefir
and 2 ounces of the flaxseed oil).
Note: at about the 35 sec. mark I pour in the flaxseed oil but call it flax
seed (instead of flax seed oil). Also this is meant to be a stand alone meal. So don’t
eat 90 mins. before or after the budwig meal. (2 full hours would be better) Also if using apricot kernels, it would be good to take them outside that time window also. Also high dose vitamin C is NOT
recommended when doing the Budwig protocol.
If not using a commercial immersion blender like I was, go a full minute!
Note: If using kefir for CANCER and it is too thick thin with organic milk rather than water.
Special note on strong antioxidants:
According to Dr. Budwig the reason for the anti-cancer activity is that flaxoil (combined with quark or cottage cheese or quark) promotes bio-oxygenation and that antioxidants interfere with that process, because they counteract the oxygen affinity of flax oil which is a basic requirement for this bio- or auto-oxygenation to take place.

Cliff Beckwith, who kickstarted the interest in Budwig in the USA (although fully concentrating on the flaxoil/cottage cheese component only) and who kept his “medium aggressive” prostate cancer under control for many years, reported in November 2006,
“On my 82nd birthday, about three years ago (Cliff turned 85 on January 5, 2007), my PSA was normal for a man my age. It was 6.7. It was then, totally unaware of the danger of heavy use of antioxidant supplements, that I began heavy use of ellagic acid and lycopene 5 months later. That canceled the value of the flax oil for nine months and that is not good with an aggressive cancer.
I will not argue that the amount of antioxidants in our natural food will probably not be a major problem with the protocol. But the way I was using it certainly has made a major contribution to my situation today.” Cliff Beckwith talked about his situation, the worsening of which he attributed to taking large amounts of antioxidants,
