Dr. Johanna Budwig was a German Biochemist, an authority on fats and nutrition and who has been nominated for the Nobel Prize 7 times. She used her methods to successfully heal terminal cancer patients, people with heart diseases, arthritis, ulcers, as well as other ailments even when conventional medical practitioners had given up on them.
Dr. Budwig found that the blood of seriously ill cancer patients was deficient in certain important essential ingredients which included substances called phosphatides and lipoproteins, while the blood of a healthy person always contains sufficient quantities of these essential ingredients. She found that when these natural ingredients where replaced over approximately a three month period, tumors gradually receded, weakness and anemia disappeared and life energy was restored. Symptoms of cancer, liver dysfunction and diabetes were alleviated.
Dr. Budwig then discovered an all natural way for people to replace those essential ingredients their bodies so desperately needed in their daily diet. Based on her observations, Dr. Budwig began treating her patients by giving them a combination of high quality flax seed oil, which is rich in Omega3 oil, and quark, which is something similar to cottage cheese or yogurt in that it is rich in high quality protein. Quark is difficult to obtain in the U.S, but either yogurt or cottage cheese is an adequate substitute.
The flax seed and quark are the foundation of the diet but are not the only foods allowed. Nutritionally important foods, unprocessed and organic, foods as close to nature as possible are allowed in this diet. Avoided are meats, sugars, harmful fats, and chemically processed foods.
Utopia Cancer Center is proud to collaborate with the original Budwig Center in Malaga, Spain. Dr. Lloyd Jenkins, Certified Naturopath and owner of the Budwig Center has endorsed Utopia Cancer Center as an approved Budwig Center in the United States. Dr. Jenkins paid us a visit in 2017 where he gave our patients a demonstration on the preparation of the flax seed and quark recipe as originally created by Dr. Budwig.
