Doc Loco Posted May 3, 2011 Share Posted May 3, 2011 (edited) The Johanna Budwig Cancer Diet LINK TO DR BUDWIG Alternative CancerFree Lifestyle Website The Johanna Budwig Diet was developed by German biochemist and physicist Dr. Johanna Budwig in the 1950’s. Dr. Budwig discovered the blood of those with cancer always had gross deficiencies of phosphatides and lipoproteins, while healthy persons did not have this deficiency. This deficiency resulted in reduced oxygen levels in the cells. Normal cells only become cancer cells when they have these reduced oxygen levels. [see: Cancer-Stress Link] Dr. Johanna Budwig then developed a simple diet to re-oxygenate the body’s cells. She discovered the saturated fats we were using in our Western diets did not contain pi-electrons. Pi-electrons are like spark-plugs for our cells to help them to “breathe” properly. Pi-electrons allow the body’s cells to assimilate and transport oxygen, and to detoxify cellular waste. Dr. Johanna Budwig discovered the best source of Pi-electrons was found in two unsaturated fatty acids of flaxseed oil. These unsaturated fatty acids (linolenic and linoleic), not only re-oxygenate the body’s cells, they also repair and restore the lipid membranes of all cells in the body, and they do this by replenishing the loss of critically needed phosphatides and lipoproteins that are always – as stated earlier - grossly deficient in cancer patients. But there was one problem. How could Dr. Johanna Budwig get the unsaturated fatty acids of the flaxseed oil into the cells of cancer patients? Only water-soluble solutions can enter cells, and an oil, however fantastic it is, is not water-soluble and therefore cannot enter our cells. After many years of clinical research, Dr. Budwig found that by combining flaxseed oil with the sulphurated amino acids found in cottage cheese – the flaxseed oil would become water-soluble, and immediately available for use by the body’s cells. What has also recently become apparent is just how important the cottage cheese is in the Johanna Budwig Diet. Not only does the cottage cheese make the flaxseed oil water soluble to re-oxygenate the body’s cells to prevent cancer mutations, it contains two ingredients that fight cancer in the best possible way. The first ingredient is sulphur. Sulphur helps to detoxify the body and prevent the growth of cancer cells. According to the National Cancer Institute sulphur compounds make cells vulnerable to the stress created by products of cell division. Because cancer cells divide very quickly, they generate more stressors than most normal cells. Thus, cancer cells are damaged by the presence of sulphur compounds to a much greater extent than normal cells. The other important ingredient in the whey (the liquid part) of cottage cheese, is dextrorotatory lactic acid. This positive form of lactic acid – when given in high doses - normalizes the cell’s pH to healthy levels of around 7.4pH. Normalizing pH of the body’s cells is critical in cancer recovery. [see: pH and Cancer] Secondly, normalising the pH balance also stimulates adrenaline production, preventing a build up of glucose in cells. Preventing this glucose build-up in cells is critical in cancer recovery, as viral-bacterial-yeast-like fungus feed on and ferment glucose, breaking the cell’s Krebs (oxygen) cycle, causing cells to mutate into cancer cells. Thirdly, dextrorotatory lactic acid of the whey in cottage cheese neutralizes the toxic, levorotatory lactic acid of the tumour into a non-toxic, racemic form. This is of utmost importance, as it removes the stimulus for an increase in the cell division rate. Fourthly, the whey of cottage cheese has powerful anti-microbial and anti-viral properties. Lactoferrin and lactoferricin in whey inhibits bacteria, yeast, fungi, and parasitic protozoa. As normal cells lose their ability to exchange oxygen due to the presence of viral-bacterial-yeast-like fungus - causing them to mutate into cancer cells - killing these microbes is also paramount in cancer recovery. Finally, the whey of cottage cheese stimulates the growth of various cells of the immune defense system including lymphocytes, macrophages/monocytes, humoral immune response, and antibody response. The Johanna Budwig Diet is considered by alternative cancer authorities as the premier anti-cancer diet in the world today – and they are not alone. So impressive is the Johanna Budwig Diet’s ability to treat cancer, even aggressive cancers like brain cancer, the two active components of the Johanna Budwig Diet – flaxseed oil and the whey of cottage cheese – are currently being studied by the US government to determine their anti-cancer benefits, with excellent results being shown to date, and with the flaxseed oil even reaching clinical trial stage. National Cancer Institute - Clinical Trials on Flaxseed Oil The National Cancer Institute, a division of the US Government, is currently conducting clinical trials using flaxseed oil on stage 1 & stage 2 breast cancer patients. The objectives of the clinical trial are: 1. Compare the effect of flaxseed and placebo vs anastrozole vs flaxseed and anastrozole vs placebo on breast tumor growth as measured by changes in tumor biomarkers from initial tumor biopsy to tumor resection in postmenopausal women with newly diagnosed, estrogen receptor-positive, stage I or II breast cancer. 2. Compare rates of proliferation (i.e., Ki-67) and apoptosis (i.e., caspase) in tumor biopsy and resection specimens from these patients. 3. Compare growth factor and signaling pathway protein expression (i.e., ERa, ERß, PgR, HER2, IGF1, IGFIR) in tumor biopsy and resection specimens from these patients. 4. Compare antibody-screen-derived recurrence scores in tumor biopsy and resection specimens from these patients. 5. Compare changes in steroid (i.e., estradiol, estrone, SHBG, DHEAS, testosterone, and androstenedione) and growth hormone (i.e., IGF1, IGFBP3) profiles from initial tumor biopsy to tumor resection in these patients. US Department of Agriculture finds Whey Prevents Cancer A team of Agricultural Research Service funded investigators from the US Department of Agriculture — Reza Hakkak, Martin J.J. Ronis, and J. Craig Rowlands — led by neuroendocrinologist and nutritionist Thomas M. Badger, has found that a modified whey protein, which Badger developed, prevents breast cancer in some laboratory rats. It's an important medical discovery, considering that 180,000 U.S. women develop breast cancer each year—and 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer over her lifetime. Whey is notably present in the liquid component of cottage cheese. The researchers studied an animal model of breast cancer. Over 3 years, female Sprague Dawley rats were fed one of two diets—one containing casein, the major protein found in milk, the other containing processed whey protein, which is found in the watery liquid that separates from milk during cheese making. The researchers have filed for a patent on the modified whey protein. "One hundred percent of the rats fed the casein diet developed mammary tumors, but only about 50 percent of the whey-fed rats developed tumors," says Badger, who is based at the Arkansas Children's Nutrition Center in Little Rock. "In addition, it took longer for the mammary tumors to develop in the whey-fed rats, and they had fewer tumors." "This data is extremely important," he says, "because it demonstrates that in the animal model most used to study human breast cancer, a common dietary factor reduces the incidence of developing such tumors." [united States Department of Agriculture – Agricultural Research Service] I find it odd that flaxseed and whey are studied apart from each other, yet the combination of the two are not. It is the synergistic effect of the fresh compounds mixed together and tested in the fresh state allowing no decomposition which should be researched in a double blind format as a possible and viable cure for many forms of cancer. Why has no one in researching for cures for cancer done this heavy lifting in over 60 years??? The Johanna Budwig Cancer Diet - Easy To Prepare The Johanna Budwig Diet is not only considered by experts as the best cancer diet in the world today, it is also one of the simplest and best tasting! Below is a 5 minute video that demonstrates just how easy it is to prepare the Johanna Budwig Diet for those with cancer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZgLvg1ixhk&hl=en_US&feature=player_embedded&version=3"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZgLvg1ixhk&hl=en_US&feature=player_embedded&version=3" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="640" height="390"></embed></object> Use flaxseed oil (ideally) from the refrigerated section of your health food store. Refrigerate and check the expiration date to make sure it has not expired. Do not use High Lignum flaxseed oil. Mix two tablespoons of cottage cheese to one tablespoon of oil. Prepare the amount you are consuming at one time so it is mixed fresh each time. Start slowly with the oil, maybe just once a day and work their way up letting the body adjust. The flaxseed oil and the cottage cheese must be thoroughly mixed at a low speed, using a Hand (Wand) Blender. Blend to a creamy texture with no flaxseed oil remaining. Consume the mixture immediately after preparation. You can flavor the mixture each day (if you like) adding nuts (pecans, pine nuts, almonds or walnuts - not peanuts), banana, organic cocoa, shredded coconut, fresh pineapple, blueberries, raspberries, or cinnamon. US National Institute of Health Finds Flaxseed Halts Cancer Growth A new US study suggests that flaxseed, which is rich in omega 3 fatty acids and lignans, can stop prostate cancer tumours from growing. The study was presented at the 43rd annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in Chicago on Saturday by researchers from Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina. The researchers think that flaxseed, which has similar properties to sesame seed, probably interrupts the chain of events that eventually makes cells multiply out of control and become a tumour. Dr Wendy Demark-Wahnefried, a researcher in Duke's School of Nursing and lead investigator on the study said that: "Our previous studies in animals and in humans had shown a correlation between flaxseed supplementation and slowed tumor growth, but the participants in those studies had taken flaxseed in conjunction with a low-fat diet." However, she explained that: "For this study, we demonstrated that it is flaxseed that primarily offers the protective benefit." The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health, and researchers at the University of Michigan and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill also took part. Demark-Wahnefried and colleagues recruited 161 men who were due to have surgery for prostate cancer (prostatectomy: where all or part of the prostate gland is removed). The patients were randomly assigned to one of four groups. One group took 30 grams of flaxseed a day for an average of 30 days before they had the operation (the flaxseed only group). Another group did the same but also followed a low-fat diet (20 per cent or less of their calories from fat). A third group did not take the flaxseed and only followed a low-fat diet, while the fourth group, a control, had none of the interventions. After the surgery, the researchers examined the tumour cells under a microscope to assess how quickly they had multiplied. They then compared the men who had only flaxseed, with or without following a low-fat diet, with the men in the other two groups: no intervention and low-fat diet only. They found that the slowest rate of tumour growth occurred in the two flaxseed supplemented groups. Demark-Wahnefried said: "The results showed that the men who took just flaxseed as well as those who took flaxseed combined with a low-fat diet did the best, indicating that it is the flaxseed which is making the difference." The flaxseed supplement was given in ground form because in the whole form the seed coat is hard and undigestible. The patients took the flaxseed either in drinks, sprinkled on food, or with yogurt. Flaxseed is thought to stop the growth and spread of cancer cells. This could be because the omega-3 fatty acids it contains interferes with the ability of cancer cells to cling onto other body cells, said Demark-Wahnefried. The lignans it contains may also have antiangiogenic properties, the ability to stop the blood supply to the tumour. Demark-Wahnefried said that they were "excited that this study showed that flaxseed is safe and associated with a protective effect on prostate cancer". In next phase of their research the team hopes to study the preventative properties of flaxseed, and its effect on patients with recurrent prostate tumours. As well as being antiangiogenic, the lignans in flaxseed, one of the richest sources of these fibre-related compounds, are thought to interfere with or prevent cell division and affect hormones. They are antimitotic, affect androgen metabolism and have estrogenic effects, said Demark-Wahnefried. It has been 61 years since Dr Budwig's discovery...why so long do the ACS & NCI wait to test this? Again: I find it odd that flaxseed and whey are studied apart from each other and found to be beneficial alone, yet the combination of the two are not studied at all. It is the synergistic effect of the fresh compounds mixed together and tested in the fresh state allowing no decomposition which should be researched in a double blind format as a possible and viable cure for many forms of cancer. Why has no one in researching for cures for cancer done this heavy lifting in over 60 years??? Could it simply be that there is no money to be made if simple cheap cures are proven to be valuable?
