 My thoughts

I came across Dr. Budwig healing protocol while I was researching Omega 3 therapeutic properties. I have used the Budwig mix for over a few years for anti aging purposes, despite the fact that dairy products are not part of my diet.

I had to choose between my nutritional ideology and the proven healing benifits of this mixture (2-4 oz of cottage cheese with flaxseed oil daily).
Covid-19 global crisis have  reminded me how important it is to strengthen our immune system by practicing daily and mindfully one of the best self care home treatment that exists.

I am now back to using the cottage flax seed oil mixture because I miss its benefits including a younger-looking skin,vitality and improved eyesight. But before listing all the great benefits of this special mixture lets dive into Dr. Budwig's scientific research which lead for her Nobel Prize nomination in 1973. 

 I hope that the information in this article will convince you to consume daily this mixture as it protects against cancer and inflammatory diseases, 


Dr. Joanna Budwig (1908-2003) is one of the pioneers in the research and understanding of fatty acids, back in the 1950's she was able to differentiate between saturated and unsaturated fatty acids way before her scientists peers.

Dr. Johanna Budwig discovered that flax seed is a significant source of highly unsaturated fatty acids. Herprimary interest was in the regulation of cellular oxygen uptake, along with any factors which might interfere with the process.  She proved that the essential polyunsaturated fatty acids linoleic and α-linolenic acid are vital  for cellular oxygen uptake. 

How significant is this ?

The significance of these polyunsaturated fatty acids is their enormous electron potential. The energy contained in this special molecular structure make them an optimal partner for binding with sulfur-containing amino acids which are present in the cottage cheese. Together they form a preventive as well as healing ecosystem against cancer and other diseases by increasing the oxygen density in the cells.

The absence of these highly unsaturated fatty acids in our diet causes many vital functions to weaken, and ultimately will change the cell environment to more acidic now that it has no means by which it can draw the oxygen in. .


The Cottage Flax Seed Healing benefits 

A dietary imbalance between Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids can lead to an increase of inflammation in the body. The relationship between good fats and bad fat such as trans fat is the main reason for diseases while the consumption of essential fatty acids is central for our health.

The problem with Trans-fats 

Following the discovery and usage of trans fats in the modern food-diet such as margarine, refined oils, and all the other high-heated fats (these process stripes off their electric charges) Dr. Johanna Budwig saw a clear relationship between impaired oxygen uptake and the synthesis and/or structure of cell membranes. These membranes lacked polyunsaturated fatty acids- the regulating, energy-rich, and, thus, life-giving and driving force behind the normal cellular function.

The importance of Omega-3

But omega-3 fatty acids are not only necessary for good oxygenation of the cell. Other functions such as metabolic processes, a strong immune system, and mental balance are also facilitated via communication between the cell membrane and the cell interior. The fluidity and flexibility of the cell membrane affects its functions. Omega-3 fatty acids contributes to the proper fluidity of the membrane and, thus, have a direct influence on its function.There is a direct relationship between  impaired oxygen uptake and the structure of the membranes.These damaged membranes lacked polyunsaturated fatty acids- the regulating force behind every normal cellular function. 

The development of the Budwig protocol -the cure 

 In this nutrition protocol, natural plant based foods and energy-dense foods play the leading role. Essential fatty acids, in particular omega-3 fatty acid and alpha-linolenic acid, and sulfur-containing amino acids, such as methionine and cysteine, are paramount for a healthy lifestyle.

Flax seed oil, a vegetable oil contains nearly 60 % omega-3 fatty acids, and quark or cottage cheese 5% contains sulfur amino acids, Dr. Johanna Budwig found the perfect pairing to form the foundation of her diet. The bond generated between these two components allows them to form lipo-proteins, which increases their shared solubility and ability to transport a long-chain fatty acids. and amino acids in a homogeneous mixture as in quark with flax seed oil ensures the timely incorporation of valuable nutrients into the body.

The basis of the Budwig diet is a mixture of flax seed oil and either cottage cheese or quark, another bland cheese. 

To prepare the Mixture combine the following ingredients and mix them well until the oil is no longer visible:

  • 1.5 ounces (oz) of flax seed oil
  • 4 oz of 3-5% cottage cheese or low-fat quark
Once blended thoroughly -you can  add honey or fruits such as blueberries. You should aim to eat 1.5 oz of flax seed oil and 4 oz of cottage cheese or quark per day always as a mixture.


Best of health ,
