Ingrid Werner, Germany, November 10th, 2016.
“Thank you Dr. Jenkins at the Budwig Center. My life was saved with the Budwig Protocol when I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 11/2013 and even today I think of Dr. Budwig when I eat my Muesli every morning. I am now cancer-free for more than 1 year but still enjoy the organic cottage cheese, Flax Oil and Seeds, and fruits and will continue with this for the rest of my life. Whenever I meet someone with cancer I tell them about your service and give them all the information that they can heal themselves if they followed your advice. Thank you for continuing with Dr. Johanna Budwig's work. I lived in Hamburg, Germany until 1957 when I came to America but never knew about her success in Germany. Keep up the great work you are doing. Kind regards, Ingrid
P.S. and if someone wants more information they can e-mail meat: firstname.lastname@example.orgMay 7, 2017 at 3:21 pm #87071
Can you please tell us whether you had estrogen positive breast cancer or not. Estrogen positive breast cancer thrives on estrogen and Flax seed is an estrogen replicator.May 8, 2017 at 3:38 am #87092
Candy we get this question often and there is a lot of confusion in regards to hormones and cancer. I would like to share this important research on this question you raised: Flaxseeds: A Humble but Powerful Cancer-Fighting Grain
Anticancer Benefits from Flax Seeds
By Pam Stephan
Updated May 30, 2012
Flaxseed, or linseed, is an ancient grain that may have originated in Egypt. The seeds, oil and seed meal can be used in many ways. Flaxseeds contain phytoestrogens, which may reduce your risk of breast cancer and possibly prevent a recurrence. The fibers from the flax plant have been used in linen fabric, yarns and bandages.
Anticancer Action of Flaxseeds
Several studies have been done to determine how the phytoestrogens in flaxseeds may help cancer. One theory compares the estrogen-receptor blocking ability of flaxseeds with estrogen-receptor modulation drugs. The weak plant-based estrogens block the estrogen receptors on cells within breast tissue, starving them of full-strength female estrogen, possibly stopping tumor growth and preventing cell damage. This effect may be most effective for younger, premenopausal women with estrogen-receptor negative cancers. A clinical trial combining flaxseeds with a macrobiotic diet has been done by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Among other goals, the study hopes to find out whether a macrobiotic diet that includes flaxseed will be beneficial during and after breast cancer therapy.
Dietary Benefits from Flaxseeds
Flaxseeds have two anticancer components: lignans and an omega-3 fat called “alphalinolenic acid” (ALA). You may be familiar with flaxseeds as they are used as a natural laxative, a good source of dietary fiber and in preparations that help lower your cholesterol. Flaxseeds may also be helpful in reducing your risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, breast and endometrial cancers. Flaxseed oil has been used for the relief of hot flashes, breast pain, arthritis pain, and pain related to constipation.
ESTROGENS and BREAST and OVARIAN HORMONES
Concern has been expressed that flaxseeds contain a lot of estrogen and concern is that it could feed breast cancer cells causing them to grow. Should the flaxseed oil and cottage cheese mixture be avoided if you have breast or ovarian cancer?
We need to understand how the natural occurring estrogen in flaxseeds work. They actually help improve the body’s ability to metabolize the estrogen which is what we want to achieve
Flaxseeds contain a weak plant estrogen called lignans. Lignans can help improve the way your body metabolizes its own estrogen. This, in turn, can reduce the development of fibroid tumors. The recommended intake is about two tablespoons of ground flaxseed per day. By doing this you can reduce the development of those tumors by 20%. Flax contains lignans, which may have an antioxidant effect and block or suppress cancerous changes.
Dr. Budwig did not encourage the consumption of flaxseeds on their own but always with some other food product. The cottage cheese or Quark when mixed with the flaxseed oil and freshly ground flaxseeds creates a powerful anti-cancer formula. Dr. Budwig noticed that it created a lot of natural oxygen which of course greatly helps destroy cancer causing pathogens. People with estrogen driven breast cancer are also encourage to consume plenty of cruciferous vegetables as they contain anti-estrogenic nutrients the body needs to win the battle against excess estrogen and its related weight gain and disorders.
Vitamin D controls 2000 genes acting as a switch that turn them on or off. Vitamin D protects the breast from the gene that is responsible for estrogen driven breast cancer. Every woman should be getting enough vitamin D . Vitamin D can prevent 77% of all cancers!!! Spend time in the sunshine when UV-B is best.
There is a common myth that our hormones can cause cancer. Now if you stop and think about
that statement, if it were true, everyone when they reached puberty would get cancer.
The correct understanding is that it is not our hormones that directly cause cancer but it is what
our hormones are exposed to is the problem.
In the year 1900, only 5% of the population reportedly had cancer. In 2016, 46% of the world’s
population are fighting cancer. Women and men had the ‘same’ hormones as we do today, so
if hormones caused cancer why the huge difference now in increased cancer rates?
What has changed from 1900 to now? We are literally living in a “toxic soup” and these toxins
literally play havoc with our hormones. Our environment exposes us up to dangerous
xenoestrogens (xeno meaning “foreign) from the chemical estrogens all around us. Things like
herbicides, pesticides, the amalgam (silver) fillings in our teeth, antiperspirants and certain
types of plastics, to name a few. Read this article by Dr. Axe on how to reduce the dangers of
toxins that seriously disrupt our hormones.May 8, 2017 at 3:39 am #87093November 25, 2018 at 11:46 am #112518
So to make it clear with estrogen receptive positive breast cancer the budwig protocol is good and can be done without fear or adding to the problem??
