Whois Dr. Johanna Budwig

Dr Johanna Budwig

johanna_budwigWho is Johanna Budwig? This is a interesting question, which I have a small feeling in a few years from now will be known all over the world.

The first interesting fact is that she has been nominated 7 times for the Nobel prize, unfortunately we have to take this on trust as nominees are kept secret for 50 years. Saying that judging by the scientific data available it wouldn’t surprise me if she was nominated, although I am surprised to see that she had not been nominated before 1958 and on this subject I will delve deeper.

Now if you are a believer in conspiracy theories or even politics then it wouldn’t be beyond the realms of possibility that the powers that be would want to suppress this deserved Laureate, still time will tell.

Whatever the case the more you digg deeper the more convinced you become of her credentials.

First I will start with an extract from Wikipedia

Johanna Budwig (30 September 1908–19 May 2003) was a German chemist, pharmacologist and physicist. She developed and promoted (from 1952) the Budwig protocol/Budwig diet, which centres around the regular consumption of foods rich in linolenic and linoleic acids.

The two unsaturated fatty acids have 3 high-energy double bonds (pi-electrons). These fatty acids affect the membranes of cells and are believed to affect oxygen transport and assimilation. Budwig’s concept was that the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids act to repair damaged cell walls and affect chemical communication of cancer cells to the point where they normalize.

Flaxseed oil (cold-pressed, unprocessed) and low fat cottage cheese are the mainstay of Budwig’s cancer diet (also used for heart disease) (cottage cheese has actually become to be used as a more readily-available substitute for the quark cheese which Johanna Budwig had used in her original work).

In addition to the above components, the Budwig diet advocates the consumption of organic vegetable juices (most prominently carrot juice) and polyphenols such as resveratrol(found in red wine). The diet bans consumption of animal and hydrogenated fats, foods high in preservatives, meats, and especially sugar. She advocated the consumption of whole foods which contain antioxidants in their natural form.

Budwig claimed this diet would cure or prevent many forms of cancers, particularly breast and prostate cancer, and a long list of other degenerative disease including cardiovascular diseases and skin diseases.

What did surprise me is how little is written about this remarkable women, particularly with 7 Nobel nominations!

So in my case there is more research to be done, but of the many quotes available on Johanna, the following is one of my favourites.

“Numerous, independent clinical studies published in major medical journals world-wide confirm Dr. Budwig’s findings….Over 40 years ago Dr Budwig presented clear and convincing evidence, which has been confirmed by hundreds of other related scientific research papers since, that the essential fatty acids were at the core of the answer to the cancer problem…You will come to your own conclusions as to why this simple effective prevention and therapy has not only been ignored—it has been suppressed!”

    I just found out that I have a type of lung cancer..3cm massa and numerous lymph nodes.
    I will find out tomorrow what type. I am so afraid of chemo and all that goes along with that plan. I have heard of the Budwig Protocol and am very interested as I am more interested in a natural solution to my situation.Can anyone help me with answers?

    Cancer is genetic in my family right through the maternal side…coming for me too, so I’ve done as much research as possible to fight it…since then my mother has beat it twice and my friend has beat it as well by following a few things below…both also did the traditional chemo/radiation, and then used the natural approaches as an adjunct. If you are 75 years of age and can risk it, go natural…if you are young and want to guarantee your life, you want to do both. Do the recommended cancer treatments (chemo),surgery, etc, and then also add the natural remedies…Diet is #1 to fight cancer and then for prevention…follow a low glycemic index diet (cancer is fed by high glucose spikes)…also consume foods that create an alkaline environment (research this)…eat organic foods when possible, or remove contaminants by natural washes. Take herbs, such as Essiac/florescence (removes toxins), Astragalas (immune system booster), coQ10, vit D, and a good mulitvitamin. Also look up ‘acrylamide’ and what foods you need to prevent that formation of the carcinogen produced when cooking foods. I’ve further been looking up some info on the Budwig diet…looks interesting. Do not go for the gimics out there…your life is valuable.
    I wish you the best.

    The cure is inside every living being,not out there in the murky world of pharmacuticals, and mainstream medicine.Study the great Bob Beck the great johanna Budwig.peoples champions to their last breath.Iam alive today thanks to these unsung heros.

    There needs to be more money spent on this type of research, as I believe we can cure almost any disease through diet.

    It’s a shame that governments prefer to reap billions of dollars in pharmacuetical profits than to find natural, much cheaper alternatives.
