    I recently heard about something called the Budwig diet. Naturally, I decided to dig a little deeper into this. I understand it has been around for a few years and there was quite a bit of hype about it. Has anyone tried it and did it do anything?

    Hi. I am actually currently on this diet. I too heard that it is good. I don’t know if it will cure the cancer or stop it from spreading, but I’ve heard positive things about it. Hope this helps.

    I have used the Budwig protocol to some success, but I have to say that I also think it will affect people differently. It may help some people, while for others, it may not do anything at all. However, the good thing is that it is natural stuff that you can and should be taking anyway.

    For the benefit of those who do not know, this diet was developed by a doctor named Johanna Budwig to help treat cancer. She developed this based on her research and came up with a diet that is rich in flaxseed oil, cottage cheese and fruits.

    So here’s the thing; I decided to try it anyway, but I tried it not in the hope of curing cancer, though, if I am honest, it was in the back of my mind. I thought it was good stuff anyway, so I stuck with it. However, I should warn people that they should not use this on its own, nor should they think of it as some miracle that can help them.

    There is no harm in using this protocol in conjunction with conventional methods, but do run this by your oncologist. Perhaps they can help set you up with a dietitian to come up with a plan for you.

    If you just took this, it could be risky, so you need to have a proper diet to get the full nutritional value of other foods. The thing is, there are certain restrictions with this diet. For example, one should refrain from sugars, meat, margarine, even salad oil!

    Wow, that is interesting. Thanks for the pretty extensive information. I am not sure I can give up my meat!

    Well, someone desperate will do whatever it takes, right? There are claims that some tumours became smaller and others disappeared. While this may be amazing, there is no scientific proof. I mean, think about it. Otherwise everyone who has cancer would be recommended the Budwig diet, right?

    Yes, I see your point.

    You mentioned having some success?

  • at July 18, 2018

    Yeah, but it’s hard to say it is because of the diet, since I was seeing my oncologist (I cannot seem to recall her name) at the time. But it is a good diet, with things you need anyway. Right now, I am seeing someone who deals with alternative cancer therapies, Dr. Sean Ceaser, who is a naturopathic physician. I have been doing quite well and I would not want to change anything, in case I jinx it!

    Good for you! Keep up the great work! I wish you every success.

    Well, thank you both for your responses. For what it’s worth, I think you have the right attitude. All the best to you.
