It’s not just one ingredient, but the combination that is the key.
Dr. Budwig is a famous German biochemist. She found that a combination of cold pressed flaxseed oil and cottage cheese successfully treated cancer and other diseases caused by fatty degeneration. So, it’s not about one ingredient, but the key combination.
The action is based on the return of cancer cells (as well as all other cells) in normal aerobic process – burning sugar in the presence of oxygen. This diet is fundamentally changing the way cancer cells breathe.
To help flax seed oil get effectively transported through the bloodstream to the cells, Dr. Budwig has recommended mixing it with low-fat cottage cheese. Why low-fat cottage cheese? Because it contains the amino acids methionine and cysteine, which are composed of a sulfhydryl group (SH – sulfur atom and hydrogen), which is easily associated with fatty acids. So linked amino acids and fatty acids make up the so-called lipoprotein, which is easily soluble in water, thus soluble in blood.
Dr. Budwig also advises the consumption of freshly grounded flax seed. This is because some substances of the flax seed are not present in the oil, and their presence is very important (especially lignans, and some vitamins and minerals). You can grind 3-6 tablespoonds of flax seed in a coffee grinder (5-10 seconds) and add them to the mixture of cheese and oil, or make a new mix without oil. After they’re grinded, the seeds should not stand for longer than 15 minutes (due to oxidation). Never buy previously grinded flax seeds.
Here’s Dr.Budwig’s Recipe:
- 2-6 tablespoon of flaxseed oil
- Half a cup of cottage cheese
- 3-6 tablespoon of ground flaxseeds
The daily dosage for the seriously ill should be 6 tablespoons (40-50 grams) of flax seed oil well mixed with 100 grams (half a cup) of fresh low fat cottage cheese. This daily amount can be eaten at once or you can spread it out on several occasions, but then you need to make a fresh mixture every time. Interestingly, this mix causes no side effects with the lactose intolerant.
Because of the taste you can add a teaspoon of honey or pumpkin oil. You can also add ground walnuts, hazelnuts or almonds, fresh fruits and vegetables, berries, and fresh fruit and vegetables. So you get a real nutritious meal.
The mixture needs to be eaten immediately after mixing. No storage in the refrigerator.
