(NaturalNews) After Johanna Budwig's groundbreaking research, detailed in Part I of this Natural News Budwig series, she put the Budwig Diet to the test on 4500 cancer victims over 50 years in Germany. She had a 90% or more success rate, even with terminally ill patients. However, getting her diet out to the world was not as successful. Now that Johanna has passed on in 2003, she is not available to monitor her cancer curing protocol.
Of course, the medical establishment has made sure hardly anyone would use the Budwig Diet. Only word of mouth, and now the Internet could spread news of the Budwig diet enough for a few to take advantage of it. But there are times when Budwig's cancer cure diet is not used properly, leading to failure of curing cancer. So it is important to get the right information from good sources.
Some Good Sources
Johanna Budwig was approached by medical doctors and authorities from different areas of the world to obtain the rights for her Budwig Diet. The terms were never satisfactory. She perceived that others would exploit her regimen for big profits while she wanted her cure to be available to everyone. This is typical with virtually all medical establishment offers for inexpensive cancer cures.
Then there was Johanna's concern over the protocol's integrity. It is always legally possible to obtain exclusive rights to procedures; cut out the originating source and then shelve it so no one can use it. Or pervert the therapy so that it doesn't cure, thus rendering it easily discreditable. But in the year 2000, Johanna was visited at her home by a small group of English speaking doctors creating a Cancer Cure Center in Spain.
After negotiating an agreement with her that was satisfactory on her terms, they were granted permission to officially use her protocol. Johanna Budwig's terms were to make it affordable and available to all who needed and wanted it, and to ensure the Budwig Diet's integrity. These conditions are very similar to the conditions proposed by other humane healers with valid alternative cancer cures. In memory of her great work, the center in Spain was renamed The Budwig Center.
Although the Budwig Center does incorporate other alternative therapies that do not interfere with the Budwig protocol, including Rife Technology and Essiac Tea, the Center is very strict with the Budwig Diet guidelines. They even point out that many who say they are doing the Budwig Diet cure for cancer are misguided or only partially informed. But there is very little, if any, margin of error with this diet.
For example, a family website, Flax Oil and Cancer established by Clifford Beckwith, explains how he cured himself of fourth stage prostate cancer using the Budwig Diet. And Clifford tells the tale of how a friend was getting positive results from the Budwig Diet for his cancer, but then he got lazy and careless. Instead of using the proper flaxseed oil, he switched to flaxseed capsules. Months later, he died from his cancer. Johanna Budwig did not approve of oils or even most vitamins and minerals in pills!
Also in keeping with their pledge to Johanna Budwig, The Budwig Center has several different fee options to include different budgetary allowances. They had a recent case of a woman who had brain cancer. When the cancer was discovered, her husband abandoned her with 5 kids! Somehow she found out about the clinic in Spain. The Budwig Center provided her with the herbs needed and guided her through the dietary protocol with no charge! She has recently completely recovered from her brain cancer with the Budwig Diet!
In the States, Robyn Hanisch has a site called Surviving Cancer Naturally. She recently shunned chemotherapy for her breast cancer and used the Budwig Diet mostly on her own. She has completely recovered, and from her own experience deals not only with the Budwig Diet, but how to be brave and walk away from the AMA doctors who use fear to intimidate you into harmful, expensive treatments that often kill the cancer's host!
A Few Budwig Diet Basics
The following is an excerpt from a Budwig Center document explaining the Budwig Diet therapy for cancer:
"NO hydrogenated oils, NO trans-fats, NO olive oil (sunflower seed oil is the best choice), No animal fats, NO meats, NO chicken, NO fish, NO eggs, NO butter, NO ice cream, NO cane sugar, sugar, molasses, maple syrup, preservatives, NO processed foods (NO pastries), NO Soy milk or Soy products (unless fermented) pesticides and chemicals, even those in household products & cosmetics. NO microwave, NO Teflon or aluminum cooking ware or foil. Drink chemical-free water. Avoid leftovers - food should be prepared fresh and eaten soon after preparation to maximize intake of health-giving electrons & enzymes. Please do not add to the Budwig program any Oxygen therapies or Laetrile (Vitamin B17 injections) or Vitamin C infusions or any supplements NOT approved by the Budwig protocol." [End of excerpt from www.BudwigCenter.com]
Using a slow speed masticating juicer for juicing organic fresh vegetables is a good way to obtain minerals and enzymes for rebuilding your health with or without cancer. Coffee enemas are useful also. These procedures are taken from the Gerson Therapy for Cancer and can be safely used in conjunction with the Budwig Diet to enhance renewed health.

In addition, there is a list of Budwig Diet recipes that offers some tasty variety while adhering to the diet's strict regimen available at no cost from the Center in Spain.
