One woman has eaten this mixture of organic cottage cheese and flax oil mixture every morning for the past four years along with a raw cancer fighting diet. In our Cancer Coaching Training, we review many alternative protocols such as the Gerson Therapy which has been incredibly successful at treating and curing many with cancer. In the Gerson therapy, patients consume 13 fresh vegetables juices (1 per hour) daily along with several coffee enemas to detoxify the body.
For the Budwig Protocol, Dr. Budwig herself states the importance in her book, Flax Oil As a True Aid Against Arthritis, Heart Infarction, Cancer and Other Diseases, that one who engages her protocol must continue on it for 5 years, or otherwise increase the likelihood of their cancer returning, perhaps with a vengeance. You are in it for the long haul and must become comfortable with Budwig preparation. We need to remember that the cancer-fighting science behind the protocol is to transport oxygen IN to the cancer cells to destroy them (cancer survives off glucose and HATES an oxygenated environment.)
In the 1950’s seven-time Nobel Prize nominee and biochemist, Dr. Johanna Budwig developed her “Oil-Protein” Diet to combat cancer. In following the work of Dr. Otto Warburg (himself a Nobel Prize winner) she studied how cancer cells are anaerobic- this means they cannot live in an oxygen rich environment. Instead, they rely on GLUCOSE (sugar) to survive (this is the reason that people with cancer should avoid sugar as much as possible !
Dr. Budwig discovered the reason why our healthy cells become anaerobic in the first place. According to her, in order for our bodies’ cells to process oxygen as fuel, they need certain enzymes to be present in the fat content of the foods we eat. However, because so much of the Standard American Diet (SAD diet) consists of chemically-treated, processed, sugar-laden, denatured foods, the necessary enzymes our bodies require for cellular respiration have been destroyed and in some cases even replaced by manufactured fats (i.e. trans fats). Over time, this sets up a whole host of problems from heart disease, to skin and lung problems, brain and liver problems, diabetes and immune deficiency syndromes, to cancer and more. In order to remain HEALTHY, our cells NEED to be able to process oxygen, and the Budwig diet provides this.
Dr. Budwig discovered that when she combined sulfur-rich proteins like cottage cheese with highly unsaturated fatty acids (rich in omega-3’s) like those found in flaxseed oil, the unsaturated fatty acids bonded molecularly with the sulphuric proteins. This bond made the flaxseed oil water-soluble, enabling it to be absorbed instantly and effortlessly through the cellular membrane. In turn, the instant flood of vital nutrients and essential enzymes to the cells acted as a spark that re-ignited their ability to burn oxygen, thus restoring ALL cells to a healthy aerobic state – INCLUDING cancer cells! Dr. Budwig discovered that this simple mixture, in effect, allowed cancer cells to ‘breathe’ again, returning them to their healthy, normal state, and thereby ridding the body of cancer!
Recipe Chocolate Pudding “CCFO”(Cottage Cheese, Flax Seed Oil)
2/3 cup organic 1%, 1.5% or 2% cottage cheese (Nancy’s brand is the best. After posting the above picture, I learned Whole Foods brand contains carrageenan which is not helpful for anyone fighting cancer.)
6 Tbsp organic flaxseed oil
10 drops of Stevita Chocolate Flavored Stevia
Directions: Mix cottage cheese and flaxseed oil using an immersion blender first. Make sure to scoop all of the cottage cheese mixture out of the blender head. Once mixture is completely combined (you shouldn't see any trace of standing oil,) add 10 drops of chocolate flavored Stevie and ENJOY.
If chocolate isn't your thing, Many others add the plain mixture to smoothies or add berries and nuts. One woman even says that she makes the CCFO mixture and adds salsa and loves it. Get creative and remember that the Budwig mixture can be eaten as a cancer PREVENTATIVE food also!
