Some things are lost in the translation. But it helps to confirm that she really knew what she was doing.
I heard about this diet from a customer with cancer who has been treating his cancer for 5years. So I wanted to learn more as the internet has a lot of people adding there own theory's to what she was doing and you need to have the real science of how it works. This explains that there was real tested science behind it. But also it needs to be administered properly for it to work, it is not as simple as eating the right foods.I would like to know where all her research is. Her research needs to be published and available for Doctors that truly care about there patients and understand there oath, ( to do no harm).

This is the only regimen that positively affected my son's cancer. He felt better and his blood test readings improved significantly while taking the regimen but unfortunately my son was had a dairy intolerance and couldn't continue with the regimen.

Basic text of innovative scientist and healer, disappointing translation May 3 2010
By Leigh Glanville - Published on
Format: Perfect Paperback
This volume provides both an introduction to and a summary of over 50 years of cancer research and treatment. Johanna Budwig (1908-2003) who was nominated for the Nobel Prize seven times was one of Germany's leading scientists of the 20th Century, a biochemist and blood specialist with a special interest in fats. Working with Otto Warburg's research into cancer and cellular oxygen-deficiency, she identified in 1951 the precise biochemical breakdown point which results in cancer. Studying the blood of cancer sufferers, she identified cancer principally as a "fat" problem.

She was one of the first to help define the categories of fats into the types that are accepted today. Dr Budwig theorized that restricting the ingestion of the "bad fats" (trans-fats, hydrogenated and saturated fats), while at the same time ingesting plenty of the "good fats" (along with a diet of fresh living foods and juices) would rejuvenate even cancerous cells, oxygenating them once again and healing the sufferer in a healthy way from the inside. Her work therefore stood in opposition to medical orthodoxy with its preference for chemotherapy and irradiation and to the interests representing these.

She chose flax oil as the source of the most abundant supply of the good fats. She knew also that these must be bonded to sulpherated proteins for them to be made water-soluble and easily assimilated by the cells of the body. For this she used quark or cottage cheese (which contains an abundance of such proteins) in a certain ratio to the oil.

In using this Oil-Protein formula with her patients what she found was gratifying indeed. Over a period of approximately 3 months tumours gradually receded. The blood became a healthy red colour, anaemia disappeared and life-energy was restored. Because of the influence of the powerful oil-processing industry in Germany, Dr Budwig was denied publication in medical journals. Nevertheless she continued to publish her research and to treat seriously ill patients with a Protocol that she specially designed. In 50 years of treating cancer sufferers (including many given up by conventional treatment as "terminal") she claimed a success-rate of greater than 90% as long as the Protocol was used correctly.

This volume collects various presentations, interviews and letters to and from Dr Budwig over a 50-year period. Some scientific explanations for her theories and practices are presented which may be difficult to comprehend for the non-scientifically-minded. It is clear that Dr Budwig understood the human being as a being of body, soul and spirit... and that she fully understood that Science and Medicine must learn once again to speak the language of Nature's laws and to cooperate with them if true and lasting healing is to be achieved in the realm of illnesses such as cancer.

Dr Budwig published 15 books in German but only three have so far appeared in English. This volume complements the other two which are currently available, namely "Flax Oil as a True Aid Against Arthritis, Heart Infarction, Cancer and Other Diseases" and "The Oil-Protein Diet Cookbook".

However, sadly in terms of the translation from the German and basic editing this volume falls somewhat short of the standards expected of modern scholarship and publishing (hence only 4 stars given). One hopes for the sake of Johanna Budwig's legacy and her most important contribution to humanity that any future editions will have addressed these shortcomings.

Health breakthrough ignored by most hospitals and all drug companies Aug. 20 2009
By Joseph D. Marcinuk - Published on
Format: Perfect Paperback
This is written by europe's top physisist, researcher, scientist, and doctor of the 20th century. I don't think I'm exagerating even a little bit. Dr. Johanna Budwig completed the research that Pullitzer prize-winners started and concluded that proper use of highly unsaturated oils would re-energize every cell in the body, disolve tumors, and recharge our "dead battery". She went further by curing thousands of cancer and other serious conditions, many considered incurable and terminal. She has earned the gratitude and respect of many patients and doctors, and earned the hatred of medical officialdom and drug companies. She dared to cure and revitalize people with items as simple as flaxseed oil and cottage cheese. Genius

Dr. Budwig Evaluation March 29 2010
By D. Martin - Published on
Format: Perfect Paperback Verified Purchase
I thought this was an excellent explanatory book detailing just how Dr. Budwig arrived at her findings regarding the flax seed oil and cottage cheese potential cure for cancer. It reads like more like a documentary of her experiences, but it still reveals quite a bit of valuable information for those wanting to know how things work.

I admire Dr. Budwig Aug. 17 2010
By Danka Tasevska - Published on
Format: Perfect Paperback Verified Purchase
I admire Dr. Budwig! This is a good book to start with - to get an idea about her discoveries. However, it is a pity that her other books are not translated in English! What I wish I had right now in my hands is detailed instructions on how to put in practice her discoveries!

Her discoveries are more than 50 years old, and it's such a pity the medical community does not put any of it into practice, as an official protocol to treat cancer! In fact, it's a pity that this knowledge is not a must-read for every human being, for every student. If we all knew these facts, we would make other choices about food and lifestyle, and not so many people would not get cancer and many other diseases, to begin with.

I'm convinced that not only the cancer patients, but everyone should be following her diet and advices, in order to have a healthy lifestyle. My current diet is about 80-90% as that of Budwig's recommendations, and it is really not a difficult thing to do - I enjoy my diet and my choices!
And I recommend this book - Budwig's discoveries and recommendations - to every human being!
