Flaxseed Oil & Cottage Cheese – The Budwig Diet
This time, for the first time since November, 2000,
when I first began publishing this newsletter, I am
going to devote the entire newsletter to one topic.
Obviously, the reason I am doing this is to get your
attention. I feel that this topic is absolutely vital
to all cancer patients and those of us who want to pre-
vent cancer and maintain our good health. I hope you
In my research, I have run across Dr. Johanna Budwig’s
name several times. I always glossed over it when I
heard her “formula” — a little flaxseed oil mixed with
Thanks to one of you, my faithful readers, I was intro-
duced to the FlaxseedOil2 chat group. More about them
in a minute. Here is a quote which I hope will rivet
your attention on this topic.
Dr. Dan C. Roehm, M.D., FACP, an oncologist and former
cardiologist wrote an article in 1990 in the “Townsend
Letter For Doctors.” He said:
“This diet is far and away the most succesful anti-cancer
diet in the world. 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).
I only wish that all my patients had a PhD in Biochemistry
and Quantum Physics to enable them to see how with such
consumate skill this diet was put together. It is a wonder.
The champagne vehicle IS easier to assimilate and get some-
one 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
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, (i.e.
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 don’t want you to know
May those of you who have suffered from this disease (and I
include your family and friends) forgive the miscreants who
have kept this simple information from reaching you so long.”
[signed] Dan C. Roehm, M.D. FACP
Did you see that Dr. Roehm is an oncologist and cardiologist.
His views are based on his own observations of patients in
his practice. Also note that Dr. Budwig’s 90% figure does
not include chemotherapy recipients! Don’t lower your odds
by taking chemotherapy. See “Short shots” below.
Here’s another quote from a noted doctor:
“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.”
Robert Willner, M.D., Ph.D.
Have I abandoned my position that there is no single cure for
all cancers? No. However, would I sit up and take notice of
this particular treatment if I were you? Darn right! I hope
you trust me enough by now to know that I would not emphasize
anything to this extent unless I was thoroughly convinced that
you should try it. My wife and I are eating it every day.
WHAT IS IT?
It’s so simple that it seems ridiculous. After 30 years of
research, Dr. Budwig came up with cottage cheese and flaxseed
oil as an effective preventative AND CURE for cancer and many
Flaxseed oil/cottage cheese, or FO/CC as it is referred to on
the chat group, is very simple to prepare. You simply mix one
cup of organic cottage cheese (no preservatives), low fat, with
2-5 tablespoons of flaxseed oil. Both ingredients are readily
available at any health food store.
My wife and I use yogurt (live cultures, not the kind in the
supermarket) in place of the cottage cheese. This is a suitable
substitution, according to Dr. Budwig. It mixes much easier and
we like the taste better. She says that using yogurt, you should
triple the amount. In other words, about 3/4 cup yogurt to every
tablespoon of flaxseed oil.
We add a package of Stevia as a sweetener and some almonds. Dr.
Budwig says you can use a blender (pouring the FO/CC in AFTER
it is well blended by hand) and then add any fresh fruits you
like for flavor — bananas, strawberries, red raspberries
(remember ellagic acid?) — and even nuts, but not peanuts.
The theory behind this odd combination? Dr. Budwig says the
absence of linoleic acids in the average Western diet is res-
ponsible for the production of oxydase, which induces cancer
growth and is the cause of many other chronic disorders. The
use of oxygen in the body (one of the best ways to “erase”
cancer cells) can be stimulated by protein compounds of sul-
phuric content, which make oils water-soluble and which are
present in cheese, nuts, onion and leek vegetables such as
leek, chives, onions and garlic, and ESPECIALLY COTTAGE
The flaxseed oil and the cottage cheese (or yogurt) must be
blended and eaten together to be effective. They are syner-
gistic. In other words, one triggers the healthful properties
of the other. It is important to keep the oil in the refriger-
ator in the dark bottle it comes in. Light and heat quickly
make it rancid. It will keep for four months in the refriger-
ator but only three weeks at room temperature. A word to the
wise: Do not buy it if it has been stored on a shelf at the
store at room temperature.
So, you just eat the FO/CC mixture and wash it down with a
Whataburger, french fries and a chocolate shake…NOT! As you
might expect, the FO/CC is part of a lifestyle change which
emphasizes food that is not processed and contains no
“hydrogenated” anything. In addition, absolutely forbidden
All animal fats
All salad oils (including commercial mayonnaise)
All meats (chemicals and hormones)
Preserved meats (the preservatives block metabolism
even of flaxseed oil)
Dr. Budwig’s formula includes a complete diet plan, including
a flax oil “spread,” which can be used with fruits, vegetables,
potatoes or grains such as rice, buckwheat or millet. It can
also be added to sweet sauces and soups. There is also a flax
oil “mayo” which can be used for salads or healthy sandwiches.
To get all the details on Dr. Budwig’s diet and the “spread”
and “mayo” recipes, just click on:
In a book called “Oxygen Therapies” published in 1991, Ed
McCabe offers this point of view on 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 a decisive role in
respiratory enzymes, which are the basis of cell oxidation…
Don’t eat anything hydrogenated (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. [emphasis added]”
Dr. David Williams, my favorite health guru, has recently added
four essential fatty acids (EFAs) to his Daily Advantage formula
(see pages 29 and 30 in my book). An article in his newsletter
urges us to drastically increase our intake of Omega-3 fatty
acids, the exact formula of flaxseed oil.
Here’s a quote from a “promo” I received recently on it:
“In case you haven’t heard the great news, Dr. Williams just
added a powerful, new Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) complex to
Daily Advantage. These EFAs, particularly the omega-3s, are
critical for you cardiovascular system, cholesterol, blood
pressure, brain function, immune system, joints, and just about
every other system in your body.”
Don’t concern yourself with the difference between Omega-3,
Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids. Just realize that Omega-3’s
should be about four to one to Omega-6’s in your diet for your
body to work properly. The ratio of our “normal” diet today is
just the opposite…lots of Omega-6’s and not nearly enough
Omega-3’s. Dr. Budwig’s work has confirmed that this imbalance,
caused by the “hydrogenated” fat in processed food, is the cause
of most infirmities we suffer from. Several studies have shown
that our typical Omega-3 level in our bodies is 80% below normal.
The flaxseed oil, when mixed with cottage cheese or yogurt,
restores that balance…period. End of scientific story.
…BUT DOES IT REALLY WORK?
Being skeptical of any new idea which makes bold claims is
healthy. When you have cancer, it is essential. I was quite
skeptical of this treatment at first. I joined the chat group
and pawed my way through the 20-25 e-mails a day. You may, of
course, do the same, if you are so inclined. All you have to
do is send a blank e-mail to:
Maybe I can save you a lot of trouble. After reading the
messages of this group for the last three weeks, I have become
thoroughly convinced that they are onto something significant
for ALL cancer patients.
First, almost all of the participants are recovering from cancer
and other diseases (strokes, diabetes, etc.) Second, all of
them, without exception, are thoroughly convinced that their
recovery is the result of the Dr. Budwig protocol. The founder
of the chat group, Clifford Beckwith, was cured of Stage IV
prostate cancer in the early 90’s by Dr. Budwig’s protocol. He
has been a missionary for this treatment ever since.
Here are a few words from the transcript of an audio tape made
by Cliff Beckwith in July, 2001:
“Shortly after I found out I had trouble, we learned that a
friend of ours had been having trouble since 1987. He’d been
to the doctors; they had done various operations and tried
different treatments but he didn’t seem to be getting any
One day my wife and I visited him and talked about the oil. He
decided to use it and began taking 2 tbsps a day [Now we know
that probably was not quite enough]. The doctor said his bladder
had crystallized and lost its elasticity. He couldn’t stay out
of the bathroom for 15 minutes. He couldn’t go to church or
carry on other normal activities. The doctor said it was a
condition he’d just have to live with.
One day he went to the doctors for a physical and he told his
wife that if he didn’t get a good report he was going to quit
using the oil. The doctor examined him and said, ‘Mr. C, you’ve
had cancer in your bladder but it’s gone. The bladder is
elastic again and everything is back to normal.’
In December, 1993 we were having a tree cut and the contractor
and I were discussing the oil. His assistant said, ‘I’ve heard
of that. I knew a man out west who found out he had colon
cancer. He didn’t let the oncologist do anything. He just used
Flax oil and cottage cheese and the tumors disappeared.’
I have a cousin in California who lost his wife to cancer a
number of years ago. He is militantly trying to get American
doctors to look at this approach. He’s talked to a group in
Spain using an Omega-3 approach that is getting a 95% cure
rate. Nothing in American medicine approaches that degree
In 1994, I talked to Dr. Budwig. She said ‘I have the answer
to cancer, but American doctors won’t listen. They come here
and observe my methods and are impressed. Then they want to
make a special deal so they can take it home and make a lot
of money. I won’t do it, so I’m blackballed in every country.’
Dr. Budwig has been nominated for a Nobel prize 7 times, but
her methods have incurred the wrath of the establishment and
she is passed over. Especially upsetting to the conventional
cancer establishment is her refusal to use radiation or chemo-
In the vast majority of the cases we have known about, there
has been apparent recovery. Where it has not been successful,
those with cancer have not used enough in the first place, or
switched to Flax flakes or capsules.
Capsules scare me. In the first place, it takes a number of
capsules to make a Tbsp. and the sulphur-based proteins are
still needed. Also, bottles of capsules are likely to sit
around on shelves at room temperature. I know of one man
who was quite badly off and began using the liquid oil and
began making dramatic improvement. About a year later, I
learned that he had died. I later learned that he had switched
In a Christmas letter in December, 1993, we heard that a friend
of ours in Wooster, Ohio, was having a bout with ovarian cancer.
The blood test for that condition is CA 125 and the normal is
35 or below. Her count was 75. Later I learned she’d visited
my sister in September and was very apprehensive. She’d had
about four rounds of chemo and couldn’t take that. We sent
information about Flaxseed oil in our Christmas letter.
Joanie is an RN and she and her husband had been missionaries
in Sri Lanka. They bought the books and started using Flax oil.
In February she was feeling fine. On May 12, 1994, she had a
checkup and the count was 2 and she was praising the Lord. In
October, 1994, she had another physical and now the count was
1. Since then there’s been no further indication of cancer.”

WHAT DOES IT TREAT?
Dr. Budwig’s formula has been used therapeutically in Europe
for prevention and treatment of: Cancer; Arteriosclerosis;
Strokes; Cardiac Infarction; Irregular Heartbeat; Liver (fatty
degeneration); Lungs (reduces bronchial spasms); Intestines
(regulates activity); Stomach Ulcers (normalizes gastric juices);
Prostate (hypertropic); Arthritis (exerts a favorable influence);
Eczema (assists all skin diseases); Old Age (improves many common
afflictions); Brain (strengthens activity); Immune Deficiency
Syndromes (multiple sclerosis, autoimmune diseases such as
Here are a few more convincing testimonials:
Siegfried Ernst, M.D.
Seventeen years ago Dr. Ernst had developed cancer for which he
had major surgery requiring removal of his stomach. Two years
later he had a recurrence of the cancer and was offered chemo-
therapy 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. He is 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 skeptical
but 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 to an
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. Budwig’s formula to Sandy’s attention. Sandy
“Since I went on the Budwig regimen, the paralysis 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 prog-
nosis: There was no hope or help for Timmy.
At this dark hour the miracle the family had prayed for happened!
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 Dr. Budwig.
In just five days, (on the Budwig regimen) Timmy’s breathing became
normal for the first time 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
WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO DR. BUDWIG?
Well into her 90’s, Dr. Budwig is still active. She lectures on
this subject all over Europe.
Don’t quibble. Don’t put this off. Don’t “wait to tell your
doctor.” In short, just do it!!
It’s food. It’s fairly inexpensive. It can’t hurt you, unless
the oil is rancid, which is pretty obvious. It’ll smell. If it
smells or tastes awful, don’t use it. Take it back and get some
Lots of trivia on the chat board…high lignan oil vs. plain oil;
ground flax seeds in addition to the oil or not; mix it by hand
or in blender; flavor it with…..well, you get the idea. None
of the people above worried about this stuff. They just ate the
mixture and got well.
It’s simple: Just buy 1% organic cottage cheese or “plain” yogurt
(with live cultures). Both should be without preservatives of any
kind, so we’re talking health food store, not supermarket. Buy
the flaxseed oil (it’s also called “linseed oil”), high lignan or
not. Be sure the oil is fresh and cold, says “cold pressed” and
is in a dark bottle.
Mix 5 or 6 tablespoons of the oil (shake it first if it is “high
lignan”) with 1 1/2 cups of the cottage cheese or 4 1/2 cups of
the yogurt. Once it is thoroughly mixed by hand (or with an
electric beater – not in blender), add whatever fruit or nuts
(no peanuts) you like for flavor and put the whole thing in the
blender to make a smoothie. Refrigerate it and eat it throughout
the day. This is a one day dose for a cancer patient (any stage,
any type of cancer).
Next, take a look at Dr. Budwig’s diet. See Chris Turner’s article
“Budwig Flax Oil Diet” (link above). Don’t continue on your “normal”
diet and expect to get well. This is a lifetime commitment. If you
drop it after the 3-12 weeks it takes to cure you, you will be very
sorry. Don’t do that!
