BUDWIG DIET IN CANCER
The Budwig Diet principally consists of a lacto-vegetarian regimen involving fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and the special Budwig core mixture of freshly ground flaxseed (Linum usitatissimum) and low-fat cottage cheese or quark. According to the Budwig diet, foods should be fresh, preferably organic, and eaten raw whenever possible or only lightly cooked. Refined sugars, meat, fish, hydrogenated and animal fats, distilled alcohol, caffeine, refined flours and grains, preservatives, processed foods, and smoking are prohibited.
Budwig's theory postulates that cancers are caused, among other things, by inadequate cell maturation and incomplete cell growth as well as impaired cellular respiration.
Budwig also hypothesized that industrially processed fats and oils play a critical part in carcinogenesis. The key element of her diet regimen is a special blend of the polyunsaturated fatty acids found in flaxseed and the sulfhydryl-containing proteins found in cottage cheese or quark. This mixture is said to re-establish normal cell growth and restore the normal function of damaged cells by re-oxygenating damaged tissues.
Today there are numerous websites and blogs promoting this diet. They state that the Budwig Diet should be able to successfully reverse most types of cancers. However, the testimonials nearly always include untraceable sources, are inconsistent in quality and contain pitfalls such as short follow-up periods, subjective endpoints, concurrent conventional treatment, etc. and are hence unreliable.
Flaxseed is contraindicated in patients with ileus or stenoses in the gastrointestinal tract.
Flaxseed can absorb orally administered medication and thus have an impact on its efficacy.
Allergies to components found in flaxseed have been reported but are very rare
The hull of flaxseed contains a mucilage that binds water in the intestines, expands and has a laxative effect. As a result, adequate hydration is necessary. To know more:- https://zenonco.io/diet-for-ca....ncer-patients/budwig
