Budwig Cancer Cure: Did Johanna Budwig Really Cure Cancer Naturally?


Cancer. The very word causes a recoil, a visceral awareness that our statistical probability of “catching” this “disease” is astronomically high. Current statistics tell us 1 out of 2 men and 1 out of 3 women will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetime. More than 1 million Americans are diagnosed each year, and this number does not include all forms of cancer.

Johanna Budwig was a brilliant scientist who did in fact develop a protocol that cured cancer.

The problem with her protocol is that there’s no money in it.

We run for the cure, we walk for the cure, we donate more than a billion dollars a year to the American Cancer Society in search for a cure, but still no cure is found. There’s no shot, no magic pill, no elixir that will wipe out cancer. Well, actually, there might be one. We do keep hearing about miracle cures from cannabis oil, but it isn’t available to the one million American citizens who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. Big Pharma has not yet figured out how they can package and sell it without decimating their lucrative cancer treatment income. So the cancer industry chugs along, with annual spending on medical care for cancer treatment totaling around 125 billion a year. Big business. Very big business. Through this conventional treatment, how many will die horrible, painful deaths, their bodies as ravaged by the “treatment” as by the disease? And why? Because there is no cure for cancer? Actually there is.


Johanna Budwig

“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.” These are the words of Johanna Budwig. No, she was not a charlatan or a quack. Johanna Budwig was a German scientist, a six time nominee for the Nobel Prize, who held two doctorates, one in medicine and one in pharmaceutical chemistry. She also studied biochemistry, physics, and psychology. Johanna Budwig found the cure for cancer in 1951.

Budwig had been appointed by her government to lead research into the process of hardening oils into solids–in other words, how to make margarine. Through this work, she was the first to discover that trans fatty acids (hydrogenated oils) are detrimental to health. At the same time, she discovered how to cure cancer, along with other diseases including diabetes, liver dysfunctions, cardiovascular problems, and arthritis.

Budwig discovered that cancer cells are simply cells that did not have the nutrients needed at a molecular level (with the right photons and neutrons) to properly mature. She also discovered that unlike the red blood cells of healthy people, the red blood cells of cancer patients did not contain a fatty layer. This discovery led to her cure, a cure with a 90% success rate. (It is good to note that many of her cancer patients were stage 4, sent to her after failed surgery and radiation. One can’t help but wonder if she would have achieved a 100% success rate with early state cancer or even late state cancer without earlier conventional treatment. )

She cured cancer through diet and nutrition. Her diet is a nutritionally dense, additive free, diet without animal products with the exception of quark (a cheese) or cottage cheese that is mixed with flaxseed oil. This mixture of oil and protein gives the body the needed nutrition to heal itself on a molecular level. Cancer cells are sloughed off or absorbed and the body is restored to health within three months.

Budwig wrote and published six books and many articles. She would have contributed more, had she not spent many exhaustive years in litigation with margarine companies and was restricted through the courts, at times, from publishing.

A Simple and Natural Cure for Cancer

Most people dismiss the idea that you can cure any cancer simply, easily, and naturally with a 90% success rate. People in general do not put much faith in alternative medicine or natural cures. Even those who subscribe to the idea of a natural and organic lifestyle tend to dismiss natural cancer treatments, thinking that cancer is too big, too strong, and too deadly for alternative medicine.

Meet Dr. Johanna Budwig

Believe it or not, Dr. Johanna Budwig, a German biochemist with a Ph.D in natural science, cured cancer with a 90% success rate with a very simple, natural, and inexpensive treatment. She was nominated for the Nobel Prize in medicine six times.

Dr. Budwig underwent medical training, was schooled in pharmaceutical science, physics, botany, and biology, and was one of the foremost experts in fats. She lived to the ripe old age of 94.

What Have You Got to Lose?

What many people do not know is that most cancers progress very slowly.  Dr. Budwig said that her protocol can restore health to most people in less than three months. Some people have seen cancer completely eradicated in just a few weeks or even days. While conventional doctors typically try to rush their patients into chemotherapy as soon as possible, consider this: cancer typically kills very slowly. Chemotherapy, on the other hand, kills very quickly.

Why not try this alternative cure?


Quark and Flaxseed Oil

Dr. Budwig’s protocol includes a proper diet, which for the unhealthy is likely to be a radical lifestyle change (but so are chemotherapy treatments). Dr. Budwig allows no refined sugars and no animal proteins except for quark (a type of cheese) or cottage cheese.  But the most important part of her program, and certainly the most well known, is the mixture of quark and flaxseed oil.

In the video on the next page, Sandra Olson shows the recipe for the Budwig Protocol. She uses cottage cheese instead of quark.

Fat is fat soluble, which means it has to be processed by bile from the liver and gallbladder. When someone is sick enough to have cancer (or any other inflammatory disease for that matter), their ability to process and absorb fats is drastically reduced. Quark and cottage cheese are rich in sulphurated proteins. When these proteins are mixed with fat, the fat becomes water soluble and no longer needs the liver’s help to be absorbed into the body’s cells. Furthermore, even a healthy body can only assimilated so much fat at once when the fat is not water soluble. Dr. Budwig’s method saturates the body with omega 3 anti-inflammatory fatty acids, a process which oxidizes the cells and restores health at a cellular level.

It’s Not Just for Cancer

Diseases thrive on unhealthy cells and inflammation. In fact, disease is the symptom of unhealthy cells. Raymond Francis put it best, “There is only one disease (malfunctioning cells), and only two causes of disease(nutrition deficiency and toxicity).” Most of our modern diseases from diabetes to cancer to arthritis are inflammatory diseases.


Budwig’s Recipe

You will need organic, cold pressed flaxseed oil and organic quark or organic cottage cheese and a blender (since you are mixing a small amount, an immersion blender works best, or you can use a mixer with a single beater). If you can get cottage cheese or quark made with fresh raw (unpasteurized and non-homogenized) milk, then get it as long as it is organic.

The ratio is 1 tablespoon of flaxseed oil to 2 tablespoons of quark or cottage cheese thoroughly blended so that the oil is no longer visible. Using more quark or cottage cheese is fine, and preferable to not using enough. A total of three to six tablespoons of flaxseed oil a day one is recommended.

Budwig’s Muesli Recipe

Blend 3 Tablespoons of organic flaxseed oil with 6 Tablespoons of low-fat (less than 2%) organic Quark or Cottage Cheese .  Blend until the oil has disappeared. If the mixture is too thick, you can add 1-3 tablespoons of goat’s milk. Do not add water or juice while blending the oil and cheese.

Grind 2 tablespoons of flax seeds and add to the mixture. (Use only freshly ground seeds.)

Mix in 1 teaspoon of raw (non-pasteurized) honey.

Add fruit, nuts or seeds (soak first!), and spices as desired.

Quark Alternatives

Organic cottage cheese can be used in place of quark. Yogurt or kefir can also be used in place of quark but are considered less optimal. The ration is also higher: 3 tablespoons of yogurt or kefir to 1 tablespoon of oil.

Vegan Alternatives

We at OLM tried to find a vegan substitute for quark, but were unsuccessful in finding one high enough in sulphurated protein. There were some vegan sulphurated protein capsules, but the company that we would have recommended quit making them and now we can’t find any available.

Bionatures.com offers “companion nutrients” with sulphurated protein already mixed with flaxseed oil. It should be noted that Dr. Budwig was not a fan of supplements and she believed the quark/oil should be eaten immediately after mixing.
