THE BUDWIG FLAX OIL DIET
The Flaxseed (Linseed) oil diet was originally proposed by Dr. Johanna Budwig, a german
biochemist and expert on fats and oils, in 1951 and recently re-examined by Dr. Dan C.
Roehm M.D. FACP (Oncologist and former cardiologist) in 1990. Dr. Roehm claims: "this
diet is far and away the most successful anti-cancer diet in the world".
Budwig claims that the diet is both a preventative and a
curative. She says the absence of linol-acids [in the average western diet] is responsible
for the production of oxydase, which induces cancer growth and is the cause of many other
The beneficial oxydase ferments are destroyed by heating or boiling oils in foods, and by
nitrates used for preserving meat, etc.
The theory is: the use of oxygen in the organism can be stimulated by protein compounds of
sulphuric content, which make oils water-soluble and which is present in cheese, nuts,
onion and leek vegetables such as leek, chive, onion and garlic, but especially cottage
Ferments of cell respiration closely connected with the highly unsaturated fatty acids,
are also needed for proper oxydation. It is essential to use only unrefined, cold-pressed
oils with high linolic acid content, such as linseed, sunflower, soya, poppyseed, walnut,
and corn oils. Such oil should be consumed together with foods containing the right
proteins otherwise the oils will have the OPPOSITE EFFECT, causing more harm than good.
The best combination is cottage cheese and linseed oil. The linseed should be freshly
ground. Carbohydrates containing natural sugar, such as dates, figs, pears, apples and
grapes, are also included in the diet. Honey is also beneficial. Most of the synthetic
vitamin A preparations are bad because they contain oxidation products, but much carotine
as provitamin A (from carrot) is consumed. Vitamin B from buttermilk, yoghurt, and natural
yeast is beneficial.
A person requires daily about 4 oz. of cottage cheese mixed well with 1.5 oz. of linseed
oil and 1 oz. of milk. A blender or egg beater works fine. The mixture an be sweeten with
honey or otherwise flavoured naturally. Fresh fruits can be added. Every morning 2
spoonfuls of freshly ground linseed oil should be taken in luke warm buttermilk or
The diet is indicated for all kinds of chronic diseases, especially heart ailments (corony
thrombosis), gall disorders, diabetes, arthritis, and malignancies. It improves failing
hearing and sight. It is the ideal nutrient for children and infants. It is suggested that
this diet be supplemented with lactic acid ferments (4).
"What she (Dr. Johanna Budwig) has demonstrated to my initial disbelief but lately,
to my complete satisfaction in my practice is: CANCER IS EASILY CURABLE, the treatment is
dietary/lifestyle, the response is immediate; the cancer cell is weak and vulnerable; the
precise biochemical breakdown point was identified by her in 1951 and is specifically
correctable, in vitro (test-tube) as well as in vivo (real)... " (Roehm,
"Townsend Letter for Doctors", July 1990)
The patient has no nourishment on day #1 other than 250 ml (8.5 oz) of Flax Oil with honey
plus freshly squeezed fruit juices (no sugar added!). In the case of a very ill person,
champagne may be added on the first day in place of juice and is taken with the Flax Oil
and honey. Champagne is easily absorbable and has a serious purpose here.
1) SUGAR IS ABSOLUTELY FORBIDDEN. Grape juice may be added to sweeten any other freshly
2) Other 'forbiddens' are:
- All animal fats.
- All Salad Oils (this included commercial mayonnaise)
- All Meats (chemicals & hormones)
- Preserved Meats (the preservatives block metabolism even of Flax Oil)
3) Freshly squeezed vegetable juices are fine - carrot, celery, apple, and red beet.
4) Three times daily a warm tea is essential - peppermint, rose hips or grape tea - all
sweetened as desired with honey. One cup of black tea before noon is fine.
Before breakfast - a glass of Acidophilus milk or Sauerkraut juice is taken.
Breakfast - Muesli (regular cereal) is overlaid with 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of Flax Oil and
honey and fresh fruit according to season - berries, cherries, apricots, peaches, grated
apple. Vary the flavour from day to day. Use any nuts except peanuts! Herbal teas as
desired or black tea. A 4 oz (120 g) serving of THE SPREAD (directions below). This is
fine to eat 'straight' like a custard, or add it to other foods taken in the day as you
Morning tea (10am) - A glass of fresh carrot juice, apple, celery, or beet-apple juice is
Lunch - Raw salad with yoghurt-Flax Oil Mayonnaise (directions below).
In addition to 'greens' salads, use grated turnips, carrots, kohlrabi, radishes,
sauerkraut or cauliflower. A fine powder of horseradish, chives or parsley may be added
Cooked Meal Course - Steamed vegetables, potatoes, or such grains as rice, buck-wheat or
millet may be served. to these add either THE SPREAD or THE MAYO - for flavour and to up
your intake of Flax Oil. Also mix THE SPREAD with potatoes for an especially hearty meal.
Add caraway, chives, parsley or other herbs.
Dessert - Mix fresh fruit other than those used for breakfast with THE SPREAD, this time
(instead of honey), flavoured using cream of lemon, vanilla or berries.
Afternoon Tea (4pm) - A small glass of natural wine (no preservatives) or champagne or
fresh fruit juice with 1-2 tablespoons of honey-coated Fax Seeds.
Supper - Have this early, at 6pm. Make a hot meal using buckwheat, oat or soy cakes. grits
from buckwheat are the very best and can be placed in a vegetable soup, or in a more solid
form of cakes with herbal sauce. Sweet sauces & soups can always be given far more
healing energy by adding THE SPREAD. Only honey or grape juice can be used for sweeteners.
NO white sugar (or brown!) Only freshly squeezed juices and NOT reconstituted juices
(preservative danger) may be used. These must be completely natural.
How to prepare 'THE SPREAD'
Place 250 ml (8.5 oz) Flax Oil into a mixer bowl and add one pound (450 g) of 1% Cottage
Cheese (ie low fat eg Quark) and add 4 tablespoons (60 ml) of Honey. Turn on the mixer and
add just enough low fat milk or water to get the contents of the bowl to blend in
together. In 5 minutes, a preparation of custard consistency results that has NO taste of
the oil (and no oily 'ring' should be seen when you rinse out the bowl).
Alternatively, you can use Yoghurt instead of Cottage Cheese in proportions of 1 oz (30 g)
of Yoghurt to 1 tablespoon (15 ml) each of Flax Oil and of honey and blend as above.
NOTE: When Flax Oil is blended like this, it does not cause diarrhoea even when given in
large amounts. It reacts chemically with the (sulphur) proteins of the cottage cheese,
How to prepare 'THE MAYO' (Mayonnaise):
Mix together 2 tablespoons (30 ml) Flax Oil, 2 tablespoons (30 ml) milk, and 2 tablespoons
(30 ml) Yoghurt.
Then add 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of Lemon juice (or Apple Cider Vinegar) and add 1 teaspoon
(2.5g) Mustard plus some herbs such as marjoram or dill.
Next add 2 or 3 slices of health food store pickles (no preservatives! - read label!) and
a pinch of herbal salts.
(The above mayonnaise plus lots of mustard and a few bananas is very tasty!)
Concluding remarks by Dr. Roehm - "I only wish that all my patients had a PhD in
Biochemistry and Quantum Physics to enable them to see how with such consummate skill this
diet was put together. It is a wonder. The champagne vehicle IS easier to assimilate and
get someone almost on their death-bed going again. A retention enema of 250 ml (8.5 oz) of
oil is another route to get this precious life-furthering, ELECTRON-RICH oil into the
body. It can also be applied to the skin for transdermal
absorption. I'll answer your questions and give you "special orders" for you
You will have to remain on this diet for a good 5 years, at which time your tumour may
have disappeared. Persons who break the rules of this diet, Dr Budwig reports, (ie eating
preserved meats, candy, etc) will sometimes grow rapidly worse and cannot be saved after
they come back from their spree (bon-bons mean bye-bye).
In 1967, Dr Budwig broadcast the following sentence during an interview over the South
German Radio Network, describing her incoming patients with failed operations and x-ray
"Even in these cases it is possible to restore health in a few months at most, I
would truly say 90% of the time".
"This has never been contradicted, but this knowledge has been a long time reaching
this side of the ocean, hasn't it? Cancer treatment can be very simple and very successful
once you know how. The cancer interests dont want you to know this.
May those of you who have suffered from this disease (and I include your family and
friends in this) forgive the miscreants who have kept this simple information from
reaching you for so long".
(signed) Dan C. Roehm, M.D. FACP
"The best, purest, most carefully prepared Flax Oil in
America is, in my opinion", said Roehm, "is Omegaflo. Arrowhead mills label is
most often seen in Florida (USA). Look for the Omegaflo".
"FLAX (LINSEED) OIL is readily denatured by oxygen, heat, and light. That's why it is
used in paint. Rancid oil is bad for health, so oil MUST be carefully produced, packed
under nitrogen in light-proof
containers, refrigerated until used, used as fresh as possible, and stabilised with
protein (THE SPREAD, etc) promptly once the container is opened..."
Flax Seeds may also be used. Seeds need only be cracked in a food blender, or they may be
ground in a coffee grinder. One needs three times the amount of seed to get the oil
equivalent. Seeds are high in calories, so one may gain weight. The seeds are also high in
soluble fibre, so blending with liquid tends to produce ever-hardening
"jellies". Fresh-cracked seed sprinkled on muesli & eaten promptly
Ed McCabe (p85, "Oxygen Therapies") discusses his point of view on
essential fatty acids:
"The red blood cells in the lungs give up carbon dioxide and take on oxygen. They are
then transported to the cell site via the blood vessels, where, they release their oxygen
into the plasma. This released oxygen is "attracted" to the cells by the
"resonance" of the pi-electron" oxidation-enhancing fatty acids. Otherwise,
oxygen cannot work its way into the cell. "Electron rich fatty acids" play the
decisive role in "respiratory enzymes, which are the basis of cell
"Dont eat anything hydrogenated like (like margarine, or fried foods) as it defeats
oxygenation. Avoid products that say "hydrogenated".
"We should eat essential polyunsaturated fatty acids to enhance oxygenation. They can
be found naturally in Carotene, Saffron, and Flaxseed oil."

Who is Dr. Johanna Budwig?
Dr. Johanna Budwig is known and highly respected around the world as Germany's premier
biochemist. In addition, Dr. Budwig holds a Ph.D. in Natural Science, has undergone
medical training, and was schooled in pharmaceutical science, physics, botany and biology.
In all courses, this brilliant scientist excelled.
She is best known for her extensive research
on the properties and benefits of flaxseed oil combined with sulphurated proteins in the
diet, and over the years has published a number of books on the subject, including
"Cancer--A Fat Problem," "The Death of the Tumor," and "True
Health Against Arteriosclerosis, Heart Infarction & Cancer."
Dr. Budwig has assisted many seriously ill
individuals, even those given up as terminal by orthodox medical practitioners, to regain
their health through a simple regimen of nutrition. The basis of Dr. Budwig's program is
the use of flaxseed oil blended with low-fat cottage cheese.
In the mid 1950's, Dr. Budwig began her long
and meticulous research on the importance of essential fatty acids (linoleic and
linolenic) in the diet. Her subsequent discoveries and announcements sparked mixed
reactions. While the general public was eager for this astounding information, German
manufacturers of commercial dietary fats (margarine, hard shortening, vegetable oils) went
to extremes to prevent her from publishing her findings. Fortunately, while Dr. Budwig's
vital announcements were initially met with resistance backed by those with financial
stakes in the commercial fats industry, her persistence paid off. Today, Dr. Johanna
Budwig is world renowned for her important discoveries on the benefits of flaxseed oil.
Her fame precedes her as she lectures all over Europe.
Fats-Good and Bad
Dr. Johanna preaches against the use of what she calls "pseudo" fats. In order
to extend the shelf life of their products, manufacturers use chemical processes that
render their food products harmful to the body. These harmful fats go by a number of
names, including "hydrogenated," "partially hydrogenated" and even
The chemical processing of fats destroys the
vital electron cloud within the fat. Once the electrons have been removed, these fats can
no longer bind with oxygen, and they actually become a harmful substance deposited within
the body. The heart, for instance, rejects these fats and they end up as inorganic fatty
deposits on the heart muscle itself.
Chemically processed fats are not
water-soluble when bound to protein. They end up blocking circulation, damage heart
action, inhibit cell renewal and impede the free flow of blood and lymph fluids. The
bio-electrical action in these areas slows down and may become completely paralyzed. The
entire organism shows a measurable loss of electrical energy which is replenished only by
adding active lipids to the diet. These nutritional fats are truly vital for man and beast
Science has proven that fats play an
important role in the functioning of the entire body. Fats (lipids) are vital for all
growth processing, renewal of cells, brain and nerve functions, even for the sensory
organs (eyes and ears), and for the body's adjustment to heat, cold and quick temperature
changes. Our energy resources are based on lipid metabolism. To function efficiently,
cells require true polyunsaturated, live electron-rich lipids, present in abundance in raw
flaxseed oil. True polyunsaturated fats greedily absorb proteins and oxygen and pump them
through the system.
Lipids are only water-soluble and
free-flowing when bound to protein; thus the importance of protein-rich cottage cheese.
When high quality, electron-rich fats are combined with proteins, the electrons are
protected until the body requires energy. This energy source is then fully and immediately
available to the body on demand, as nature intended.
Proven Benefits Still
Since Dr. Johanna Budwig's findings on the benefits of flaxseed oil have been widely
publicized, scientists around the world have eagerly jumped on the bandwagon. Studies
conducted using flaxseed oil on numerous disorders have been pouring in from all over the
world, showing impressive results, including anti-tumor activity, increased metabolism,
greatly boosted immune system, reduced cholesterol levels, normalized blood pressure
levels and inhibition of cancer cell growth. Books research reports, articles and
testimonials abound, all touting the healthy benefits achieved by supplementing the diet
with organic, raw, cold-pressed flaxseed oil with low-fat cottage cheese. Dr. Budwig's
research was based on using the ratio of 2 tablespoons flaxseed oil mixed with one-quarter
cup of low fat cottage cheese.
Backed with all this extensive
research, the indisputable fact is: Supplementing your diet daily with flaxseed oil
combined with sulphurated proteins could very well be the most important thing you do for
yourself every day.
A top European cancer research scientist, Dr Johanna Budwig,
discovered a totally natural formula that not only protects against the
development of cancer but people all over the world who have been diagnosed
with incurable cancer and sent home to die have actually been cured and now
lead normal healthy lives.
After three decades of research Dr. Budwig, sixtime nominee for the Nobel
Award, found that the blood of seriously ill cancer patients was always,
without exception, deficient in certain important essential ingredients
which included substances called phosphatides and lipoproteins. (The blood
of a healthy person always contains sufficient quantities of these essential
ingredients. However, without these natural ingredients cancer cells grow
wild and out of control.)
Blood analysis showed a strange greenish-yellow substance in place of the
healthy red oxygen carrying hemoglobin that belongs there. This explained
why cancer patients weaken and become anemic This startling discovery led
Dr. Budwig to test her theory.
She found that when these natural ingredients where replaced over
approximately a three month period, tumors gradually receded. The strange
greenish elements in the blood were replaced with healthy red blood cells as
the phosphatides and lipoproteins almost miraculously reappeared. Weakness
and anemia disappeared and life energy was restored. Symptoms of cancer,
liver dysfunction and diabetes were completely alleviated.
Dr. Budwig then discovered an all natural way for people to
essential ingredients their bodies so desperately needed in their daily
diet. By simply eating a combination of just two natural and delicious
foods not only can cancer be prevented but in case after case it was
actually cured. (These two natural foods, organic flax seed oil & cottage
cheese) must be eaten together to be effective since one triggers the
properties of the other to be released.)
After more than 10 years of solid clinical application, Dr.
formula has proven successful where many orthodox remedies have failed. Dr.
Budwig's formula has been used therapeutically in Europe for prevention of:
Cancer! Arteriosclerosis, Strokes, Cardiac Infarction, Heartbeat
(irregular), Liver (fatty degeneration), Lungs (reduces bronchial
spasms), Intestines (regulates activity). Stomach Ulcers (normalizes
gastric juices), Prostate (hypertopic), Arthritis (exerts a favorable
influence), Eczema (assists all skin diseases), Old age (improves many
common afflictions), Brain (strenghthens activity), Immune Deficiency
Syndromes (multiple sclerosis, autoimmune illnesses)
Thousands have flocked to hear Dr. Budwig
lecture all over Europe. The many
people Dr. Budwig's formula has helped testify to the benefits of her
remarkable discovery. Following are a few examples: In one of my interviews
with Dr. Budwig I was introduced to Siegried Ernst, M.D.. He is a rare and
dedicated man who counts among his personal friends the current Pope as well
as many other dignitaries.
Seventeen years ago Dr. Ernst had developed cancer for which
major surgery requiring removal of his stomach. Two years later he had a
recurrence of the cancer and was offered chemotherapy as the only available
remedy. There was little hope for survival as virtually all individuals with
recurrence of this type of cancer rarely last a year.
Dr. Ernst knew that chemotherapy was not only ineffective for his type of
cancer but completaly destructive of the quality of life, so he refused.
He turned to Dr. Budwig and her formula for help. He religiously followed
Dr. Budwig's formula and fifteen years later has not had any recurrence of
cancer. As a matter of fact he seemed to me to be in perfect health and is
tireless for a man in his late seventies.
Maria W. tells her story in her own words: "I was told by the most expert of
doctors that I would have to be operated on to cut out the cancerous tumor
that was causing a swelling under my eye. They explained that the size of
the tumor was much greater inside and that there was very serious bone
involvement. The malignancy was too far advanced to respond to radiation
treatment. The doctors planned to remove considerable facial tissue and
bone. I was afraid for my life, but being a young woman, couldn't bear the
thought of such disfigurement.
When I heard about Dr. Budwig's natural formula, I was
desperate for help. After four months on this regimen, the swelling under my
left eye completely disappeared. The doctors at the University hospital gave
me many exhausting tests. One told me, 'If I didn't have your previous
x-rays and medical history in front of me, I wouldn't believe that you ever
had cancer. There is hardly any indication of a tumor remaining.' I never
thought using Dr, Budwig's formula would be so successful. My whole family
and I are very grateful."
An examination of Sandy A. revealed arachnoidal bleeding due
inoperable brain tumor. The doctors informed Sandy that he was beyond
medical help. At his expressed wish, Sandy was discharged from the
hospital and sent home to die in peace.
A friend brought Dr. Budwigs formula to Sandys
attention. Sandy writes.
Since I went on the Budwig regimen, the paralysis is of my eyes, arms, and
legs has receded daily. After only a short period of time, I was able to
urinate normally. My health improved so rapidly that I was soon able to
return to my work part-time. Shortly after that, I was again examined at the
Research Center and my reflexes were completely normal. The Budwig diet
saved my life! Ten years later, I was given a thorough examination at the
Center as a follow-up. My incredible recovery has been written up In many
medical journals and I have become what they call a 'textbook case,' and
all because of Dr. Johanna Budwig's simple diet."
Seven years ago Timmy G. was diagnosed as having Hodgkins
disease. The child
was operated on and underwent 24 radiation treatments, plus additional
experimental therapies that the experts hoped would be of some small help.
When Timmy failed to respond favorably to these heroic measures, he was
discharged as incurable, and given six months to live and sent home to die.
The desperate parents contacted specialists all over the world. A famous
newspaper took up Timmy's cause and ran editorials pleading for someone to
come forth who could offer hope for the life of a child. All the specialists
who replied confirmed the cruel prognosis: There was no hope or help for
At this dark hour the miracle the family had prayed for
Timmy's mother told her story to the press: "A friend sent me a printed
piece about one of Dr. Budwig's speeches. This material gave us hope and I contacted
In just five days, (on the Budwig regimen) Timmy's breathing became normal
for the first lime In almost two years.
From this day on, Timmy began to feel good again. He went
back to school, started swimming and by winter he was doing craft work. Everyone who knows
him says how well he looks." At age 18 Timmy is showing great promise in his
university work. He knows he owes his life to Dr. Budwig and thanks her daily in his
One of the two foods in on Budwig's formula, cottage cheese, is available
in nearly every grocery store in America. The other, pure organic linseed
oil, however comes primarily from Europe and can only be found in certain
health food stores throughout the United States.
By simply mixing these two delicious foods together and eating them you will
be providing yourself and your family with the optimal preventive
nutritional protection against cancer and other disease.
Today, fresh expeller pressed flaxseed oil is available in
most countries in the world, including USA and Europe.
