This plan has stopped cancer & other diseases for over 50 years

This can help you to follow Dr. Budwig's protocol. It is based
on her book, "Cancer - The Problem and the Solution" [1999], her
cookbook, "The Oil-Protein Diet" [1952] as well as on our Files
for this group and experiences of our members. The menu below is
Dr. B's SUGGESTED GUIDELINE, you don't have to consume all of it.

Most people begin gradually, adding healthy foods & liquids and
eliminating damaging ones. The diet seems simple, but foods are
powerful and can damage or heal a person. The Budwig plan has healed
people of many kinds of cancer and other diseases and conditions.

In liver, pancreatic, stomach and gall bladder disease it's best to
begin with a "Transition Diet" which is explained in our Files
Section, Folder 3. After the transition, begin the diet below with
small amounts of the oil & cheese as well as the other foods.

Dr.Budwig had over a 90% success rate with this protocol with
all kinds of cancer patients over a 50 year period. Many research
studies done in the last ten years support the cancer-fighting value
of the foods, juices, sun exposure and relaxation Dr.Budwig recommended.
There are many testimonials in the Files of this group written by
members who have regained their health by following this protocol
after being diagnosed with cancer - many of them terminal.

To start the diet, it helps to have 3 appliances:
1- A coffee bean grinder to grind the whole brown flaxseeds sold in health food stores or online. Freshly ground seeds are a must.

2- An immersion hand-held mixer (a stick-shaped mixer) to blend and bond the flaxseed oil [FO] & cottage cheese [CC] together so that they become one food, making the oil water-soluble and more absorbable. It's important to use an electric mixer rather than stirring the two.

3- A vegetable juicer. A masticating type juice is said to give a
more healthful juice than a centrifugal type. Research Green Star & Omega 8005.

Generally, each tablespoon of Flaxseed Oil (FO) is blended with 2 or more tablespoons of low-fat organic Cottage Cheese(CC)or quark. That is a ratio of approximately 1:2. Cold-pressed refrigerated liquid FO is used, for example, Barlean's & Spectrum. It's better to buy regular FO instead of High Lignan FO. Healthier lignans are obtained at a lower cost by using freshly ground flaxseeds. [used instead of Linomel]. Ground seeds must be used within 15 minutes.

TO START THE DAY - About an hour before breakfast, have a glass of raw sauerkraut juice. It has cancer-fighting benefits. Homemade is best in order to get the digestive enzymes [recipe in
Files - Folder 5 'Foods']. Go to this site for a video on making sauerkraut: Press the arrow to start video. To get saurkraut juice, run the finished homemade kraut through your juicer.

Also, you can order RAW sauerkraut juice at this link:
Anything pasteurized has lost its enzymes but still offers lactic acid which is important and helps with digestion. Biotta is a brand that is pasteurized but is a high quality juice, has lactic acid & vitamins C & K.
Biotta can be ordered online. One 17oz bottle offers 2 or 3 servings.

Start with a cup of green tea or herbal tea. It provides warm liquid required for the ground flaxseeds to swell properly. That is important. Then eat your Muesli [Muesli in the Budwig diet refers to the recipe below - we often call it FOCC]. Cottage cheese, quark, homemade yogurt cheese or kefir cheese is OK to use. [Recipes in Files]

Budwig FOCC[or quark]
Recipe: [Make enough for 1 meal only, avoid storing.
Eat immediately. Use organic foods if possible. JB's cookbook has varied recipes]
[1] Blend 3 Tbs flaxseed oil with 6 Tbs low-fat CC or quark with a hand-held immersion electric mixer for up to a minute. If needed, add 2 Tbs milk. Avoid adding water or juices when blending FO with CC or quark. The mixture should be like rich whipped cream with no separated oil.
Layer or stir in the following ingredients:

[2] Grind 2 Tbs whole flaxseeds and add. [This replaces Linomel] Freshly ground seeds become rancid within 20 minutes, eat recipe immediately.

[3] Add various fruits such as fresh [or thawed-out frozen if necessary] berries, all kinds, which contain strong cancer-fighting ellagic acid.

[4] Add other fresh fruit if you like, totaling 1/2 to 1 cup of fruit.

[5] If mixture is too thick, add 1 or 2 Tbs of fruit juice [e.g. dark grape, blueberry] or milk. Fruits & their juices are proven cancer fighters.

[6] Add organic raw nuts such as walnuts or Brazil nuts [no peanuts] and a bit of raw honey and, if you like, vanilla, cinnamon, lemon juice, etc. Try various fresh organic fruits & flavorings.
[This recipe is one example of how FO can be mixed with cheese. If you don't like this recipe, you can make yogurt cheese, kefir cheese, goat cheese. You also can add veggies/spices rather than fruit & eat the fruit at another time.]

Here's a link to a video of the FOCC recipe being made.

Here's a 2nd video of the FOCC Introductory Recipe

Freshly-pressed vegetable juice from carrots and/or beet, celery, lemon, apple as well as green vegetables - lettuces or spinach[carrot & beet juices are especially helpful to the liver & are strong cancer fighters] Vary vegetables. Chart comparing juicers:

GO OUTSIDE FOR SUNLIGHT - Dr. Budwig emphasized that being in sunlight is very healthful for vit.D and other benefits [even in winter]. Avoid burning & avoid sunscreen & sunglasses.

If you feel up to having some exercise, individualize it according to your strength - DON'T OVERDO IT. Some quotes by Dr.Budwig regarding exercise: "Often yoga or sport is very important, but sometimes the patient should not do this" and "I would never allow a cancer patient with metastases to jog, ride a bicycle, or to practice yoga. His body must relax."

One form of exercise that is beneficial for most people is using a rebounder [a mini-trampoline] because it helps clear the lymph system and promotes better drainage. See www.healthbounce. com & www.needakrebounder .com]

A cup of warm green or herbal tea. Use honey if desired (no sugar). Also suggested, one Tbs whole flaxseeds, freshly ground and added to a glass of champagne, known to help digestion & absorption. [1999 book]

RAW vegetable salad with various home-made salad dressings which may include one or more Tbs FO blended with 1 or 2 Tbs organic low-fat CC plus one Tbs organic apple cider vinegar or lemon juice and spices. Or, for sweeter dressing, try FO & grape, orange, apple or another juice. You can vary the salad dressings based on the recipes in the Oil-Protein Diet Cookbook. Several recipes do not include cottage cheese at all. The body can utilize 1 or 2 Tbs oil without cottage cheese. Avoid commercial salad dressings. Pumpkin seed oil can also be used. Experiment with spices or honey for variety.

If still hungry, make baked or steamed veggies and grains. [See "DINNER"]

LUNCH DESSERT: It's IMPORTANT to have a SECOND SERVING of FOCC with varied fresh raw fruits (organic if possible). Again, use 3 Tbs FO & 6 Tbs CC with fresh fruit but NO flaxseeds. If there are problems digesting this amount of oil, begin with smaller amounts of FOCC and increase it slowly. Chew very well to optimise digestion. Predigestion starts in the mouth by mixing saliva with the foods. Try to have meals in a peaceful atmosphere. Relaxing is important.

Two Tbs whole flax seeds, freshly ground, stirred into a glass of sparkling wine or Champagne OR one Tbs flax seeds, ground and stirred into a glass of fruit juice: grape, cherry or pineapple.
Chew the ground flaxseeds for better digestion. Repeat 1/2 hour later.

RELAX, in sunlight if possible, TO RELIEVE STRESS. Empty the mind of worries, angers, fears. Focus on nature, music, chat, laughter, or what pleases you. Think kind thoughts about yourself & others. Dr. Budwig said that relieving stress is extremely important. Many research studies support this idea.

One Tbs whole flaxseeds, ground & added to blueberry or papaya juice. Both papaya & pineapple [above] have digestive enzymes if they are fresh. Most bottled juices have lost their enzymes but still have valuable nutrients. If making the juice, drink it immediately after preparation before the enzymes are lost by air and light. You want to get as many natural enzymes as possible [as well as electrons from flax seeds & oils]. [Note: Instead of the fruit juices, some members heal using homemade vegetable juices as described at 10 a.m.]

Vegetable soup or a variety of veggies and starch-containing foods, well spiced. Add Oleolux and nutritional yeast flakes after cooking. Nutritional yeast adds important B-vitamins which boost energy & mood. Choices of cooked starchy foods - buckwheat (JB's top choice-digests well & very nutritious), millet, brown rice, lentils, beans, peas, yams & potatoes. Add lightly cooked vegetables such as kale, tomatoes, spinach, beets, carrots, chard, cabbage, brussel sprouts, broccoli, onions, artichokes, asparagus, peppers, green beans, etc. Also, add healthful spices such as cayenne pepper, paprika, turmeric & others. AFTER COOKING, add homemade Oleolux 'to taste,' which adds more nutrition and satiates appetite. [Oleolux recipe in File 5].
Use also as a spread on bread [whole or sprouted grain, homemade or Ezekiel].

A glass of organic red wine if desired.

The above diet can be varied by the many recipes in Dr. Budwig's book "The Oil-Protein Diet Cookbook," sold on Amazon and Barlean's websites for about $10.

Dr. Budwig stressed that we must AVOID UNHEALTHY FOODS and SUBSTANCES such as hydrogenated fats, trans-fats, animal fats [other than in cheese]; avoid butter, sugar, white flour, preservatives, processed foods, pesticides and chemicals, even those in household products & cosmetics. Drink chemical-free, filtered water if possible.

++ Avoid leftovers - food should be prepared fresh and eaten soon after preparation to maximize intake of health-giving electrons & enzymes.

++ At least 3x a day drink warm green or herbal teas, unsweetened or sweetened only with honey.

++ Stress is damaging. Avoid stress and anxiety; take time to relax & enjoy each day. Listen to beautiful music, laugh, do deep breathing, connect with nature, spend time with people you like.
Eliminate anger and sadness through EFT, counseling, support group or some method of letting go of it.

++ ELDI oils are oils for external application or enema. Dr.Budwig had her patients use them extensively. [See Files for information] .

++ Dr.Budwig did not include drugs or supplements in her protocol guidelines. In her 1999 book, she spoke against them. Flax oil is known to thin the blood, be careful about using blood-thinning drugs, including aspirin. It could be dangerous. Some supplements, especially high amounts of man-made antioxidants, can seriously interfere with how well the diet works, as can some drugs and treatments such as chemo and radiation, cortisones, hormones & pain killers. She also warned against the dangers of oxygen therapy for the cancer patient & said that the cells are not ready to absorb oxygen but are healed through diet.

++ The foods in the Budwig Protocol give your body what it needs daily to stop cancer. Dr. Budwig warned that you should follow the diet strictly for three years before relaxing a little, but
you can never stop these foods for more than a few days, and you cannot regularly include damaging foods or supplements. Doing so may allow the cancer to return. This has happened to some members.

++ Take care of your teeth. If there are hidden infections, they could interfere with your improvement.

Dr.Budwig's book "Flax Oil as a True Aid Against Arthritis, Heart Infarction, Cancer and other Diseases" offers an understanding of the scientific principles behind this protocol. Her cookbook
"The Oil-Protein Diet" gives practical diet information and recipes. Both of these books can be ordered from or from for about $10. Excerpts are in our files section.

Her newest (and last) book, "Cancer-The Problem and The Solution," written in 1999, is available from Excerpts from this book are in the Links Section of our group along with Frequently Asked Questions [FAQ]& other information.
