Flaxseed Oil and Dr Budwig Diet for Cancer
Can flatseed oil help to fight cancer? Should we all start eating flaxseeds and using flaxseed oil in our salads? Dr Joanna Budwig has been treating cancer for 16 years with flaxseed oil and cottage cheese and nothing else.
I would recommend to read Dr Budwig’s book about how good fats can affect our metabolism and our body. The book had a great impact on medical community and nitritional science.

Recent research on flaxseed oil and health benefits of flax promises good results. Flaxseed oil is sold mostly at health-food stores. Like olive, canola, and most other plant oils, it is highly unsaturated and heart-healthy. Flaxseeds have another very interesting component—lingams—which may have anti-cancer properties.
Despite all the concern about fat in our diet, the body does require healthy fats and oils to function.
The problem is that most people are getting the wrong kinds of fats in their diet and are lacking the good, healthy fats. Besides being an energy source, healthy fats and oils are nutrients used in the production of cell membranes, as well as in several hormone-like compounds called eicosanoids.
These compounds help regulate blood pressure, heart rate, blood vessel constriction, blood clotting and the
nervous system. In addition, dietary fat carries fat-soluble vitamins — vitamins A, D, E and K — from your
food into your body. Fat also helps maintain healthy hair and skin, protects vital organs, keeps your body
insulated, and provides a sense of fullness after meals (satiety). The human body cannot function properly
without two polyunsaturated fats – linoleic and alpha-linoleic acid. These fatty acids, which are found in flaxseed oil and other healthy oils and are truly to normal cell structure and body function. Flaxseed may prove useful in the nutritional management of patients with autoimmune diseases.
Dr. Budwig, has been treating cancer of all kinds with nothing but cottage cheese and Flaxseed Oil for over 16 years. She says that people with cancer have blood that is low in Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids and the blood has a greenish cast. Flaxseed oil is 56% Omega 3 and 16% Omega 6. Recently I read that most people have blood that is 80% deficient in Omega 3. Dr. Budwig has taken patients sometimes given only hours to live and restored them to health. Doctors had attempted to treat patients with sources of Omega 3 but had not been
Dr. Budwig’s research found that in order for these fatty acids to be fully available to the body, they must be tied to a sulfur based protein; the best source of which is cottage cheese. Depending on the severity of the condition she had her patients use 3 to 6 Tbsps. of flaxseed oil a day, with at least 4 oz or 1/2 cup of cottage cheese per day.
