(NaturalNews) Cancer therapy is a controversial subject, both for traditional medicine and alternative therapists, particularly because no universal treatment, one that works equally well for everyone, has yet been found. However, an array of alternative and experimental cancer recovery strategies exist, many of which have helped real people beat cancer, strategies like medical cannabis, acupuncture, and medicinal mushrooms. The obscure Budwig diet was named after German biochemist Johanna Budwig, who sought to overcome cancer naturally, through a holistic eating protocol. In 1951, Dr. Budwig claimed she found a way, and that the secret lied in flaxseed oil and cottage cheese.

Largely ignored by the scientific community, the Budwig protocol has neither been confirmed nor officially refuted by any medical authority, and all that remains to attest to its validity is a heap of testimonies from cancer survivors, as well as its mention is several books, including "The Cancer Recovery Guide: 15 Alternative and Complementary Strategies for Restoring Health," published in 2008, which outlines its core principles. Today, the Budwig protocol is being implemented at the Budwig Center in Spain, and a handful of other cancer recovery resorts around the world.

The DOs

The Buckwig protocol is based on the assumption that flaxseed fats support blood health, and healthy blood can then carry healthy nutrients to the body's cells. To make flaxseed fats bioavailable, Dr. Buckwig suggested blending or crushing the seeds, and mixing them with a calcium and sulfur rich protein, like cottage cheese. She proposed a flax-based meal, consisting of six to ten tablespoons of standard organic flaxseed oil (not enhanced in any way), cottage cheese, and a bit of cayenne pepper or garlic. To complement the regime, Dr. Buckwig recommended a largely vegetarian, high quality plant-based diet, and plenty of exposure to sunlight. Modern variations of this meal include the addition of fruits, nut butters and raw Hunza Goji berries for more flavor and better nutritional content.

The DON'Ts

The Buckwig protocol warns against the use of any kind of supplements, as they could interfere with the effectiveness of the flax oil. Dr. Buckwig specifically mentioned that fortified flaxseed oils and vitamin C supplements are to be avoided. Other food items that should be left out of an anti-cancer regime include sugars, meat, animal fats (including most dairy products other than cottage cheese), seafood, processed foods, soy products, as well as margarine (which contains harmful hydrogenated fats associated with heart disease). Using aluminum and teflon cooking pots is also to be avoided whenever possible, as is the use of microwaves to heat food.
