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 MD. 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 diet is both a preventive 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 chronic disorders.
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 assimilation of oxygen in the organism can be stimulated by protein compounds containing sulphur, 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 present in cottage cheese.
It is essential to use only unrefined, cold-pressed oil with high linoleic acid content.
Such oil should be consumed together with foods containing the right proteins
otherwise the oil will have the OPPOSITE EFFECT,
causing more harm than good.
The best combination is cottage cheese and linseed oil.
The diet is indicated for all kinds of chronic diseases, especially heart ailments (coronary 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.
SUGAR IS ABSOLUTELY FORBIDDEN, (white and brown) as well as:
Refined White Flour
- Herbal Tea
- Dr. Johanna Budwig Cream:
1 cup (4 tbsp.) Organic cottage cheese (low fat, not too hard) or yogurt
2 Tbsp. of flaxseed oil
2 Tbsp. of freshly ground up flaxseed (coffee grinder works fine)
- Juice of half lemon
- One banana or honey
- Fresh fruit in season
Put everything in a blender. Make it soft.
Note: When Flax Oil is blended like this, it does not cause diarrhoea when given in large amounts. It reacts chemically with the (sulphur) proteins of the cottage cheese.
- Herbal Tea
- A glass of fresh carrot juice, apple, celery, or beet root
In addition to ‘greens’ salads, use grated turnips, carrots, radishes, beetroot, or carrot. A fine powder of horseradish, chives or parsley may be added for flavour.
- Steamed vegetables
- Grains as rice, buck-wheat, or millet may be served
- Lean meat, fish or cheese
- Herbal Tea
- Fresh fruit juice
- Fresh fruit according to season
Note: All cakes, biscuits, ready made cereals and sweets are made from refined sugar, flour, and oils which give you only empty calories!
Have it as earlier as possible, at 6pm. It is suggested to have light dinner without meat.
- Stem vegetables
- Vegetable soup
- A hot meal using buckwheat, oat, millet, barley or soy
- The SPREAD
This is fine to eat ‘straight’ like a custard, or add it to other foods as salad, steam vegetables, or grains.
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 and add 4 tablespoons (60 ml) of Honey. Turn on the mixer and add just enough milk (rice, almond, soy) or water to get the contents of the bowl to blend in together. In a few 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.
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 Infraction & 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 (linoleic and linolenic essential fatty acids) blended with low-fat cottage cheese. 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 “psedo” fats. In order to extend the shelf life of their products, manufacturers use chemical processes that render their food products harmful to the body. This harmful fats go by a number of names, including “hydrogenated”, “partially hydrogenated” and even “polyunsaturated”.
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 and 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 alike.
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 Pouring In
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.
Backed with all this extensive researches, 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, has 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, six time 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 includes 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 substances in place of the healthy red oxygen carrying hemoglobin that belongs there. This explained why cancer patient weaken and become anemic. This starting 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 replace those 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.)
“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 don’t 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”

After more than 10 years of solid clinical application,
Dr. Budwig’s natural 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 Infraction,
Heartbeat (irregular), Liver (fatty degeneration),
Lungs (reduces bronchial spasms) Intestines (regulate activity),
Stomach Ulcers (normalizes gastric juices), Prostate (hypertopic),
Arthritis(exerts a favorable influence), Eczema (assists all skin disease),
Old age(improves many common afflictions),Brain(strengthens activity),
Immune Deficiency Syndromes (multiple sclerosis, autoimmune illnesses).
