We are what we eat – 100 years ago people had a lot mote essential food Oils in their diets i.e. Fish, Hemp Seeds, natural foods etc.

The 6 times Nobel nominee Dr Budwig’s “Cancer Cure” diet used Hemp Seed Oil and cottage cheese. Hemp Seed Oil is an essential food Oil (packed with Essential Fatty Acids) and cottage cheese holds sulphur.

The initial diet used Flax Oil, but as Hemp Seed Oil contains a naturally more balanced ratio between Omega 3 and Omega 6, it is more sustainable over longer term use.

The Budwig Diet

The “Flax Seed Oil” diet was originally proposed by Dr. Johanna Budwig, a German biochemist and expert on fats and Oils, in 1951. Dr. Budwig holds a Ph.D. in Natural Science, has undergone medical training and was schooled in pharmaceutical science, physics, botany and biology. She is best known for her extensive research on the properties and benefits of Flax and later Hemp Seed Oil combined with sulphurated proteins in the diet and over the years has published a number of books on the subject, including “Cancer – A Fat Problem,” “The Death of the Tumour,” and “True Health Against Arteriosclerosis, Heart Infarction & Cancer.”

Dr. Budwig found that the blood of seriously ill cancer patients was deficient in certain important essential ingredients which included substances called phosphatides and lipoproteins, while the blood of a healthy person always contains sufficient quantities of these essential ingredients.

She found that when these natural ingredients where replaced over approximately a three month period, tumours gradually receded, weakness and anaemia disappeared and life energy was restored. Symptoms of cancer, liver dysfunction and diabetes were alleviated.

Dr. Budwig then discovered an all natural way for people to replace those essential ingredients their bodies so desperately needed in their daily diet. By simply eating a combination of just two natural and foods not only can cancer be prevented but in case after case it was actually cured. Initially Dr. Budwig used Flax Seed Oil, but found that the oil’s essential fatty acids were not in balance and that people started experiencing some side effects. Working with Udo Erasmus, she then switched to using Hemp Seed Oil instead of Flax. The two foods Dr. Budwig recommends – organic Hemp Seed Oil & cottage cheese – must be eaten together to be effective since one triggers the properties of the other to be released.

After more than 10 years of solid clinical application, Dr. Budwig’s natural formula has proven successful where many orthodox remedies have failed. Dr. Budwig’s formula has been used therapeutically in Europe for prevention of: cancer, arteriosclerosis, strokes, cardiac infarction, stomach ulcers (normalizes gastric juices), Prostate (hypertopic), arthritis (exerts a favourable influence), eczema (assists all skin diseases) and even immune deficiencies.

Thousands have been helped by her protocol. Testimonials can be found for almost every type of cancer and tumours, even late stage. Dr. Budwig has assisted many seriously ill individuals, even those given up as terminal by orthodox medical practitioners, to regain their health through a simple regimen of nutrition. The basis of Dr. Budwig’s program is the use of Hemp Seed Oil blended with low-fat cottage cheese.

Dr. Johanna preaches against the use of what she calls “pseudo” fats – “hydrogenated,” “partially hydrogenated” and even “polyunsaturated.” The chemical processing causes the Oils to become a harmful substance deposited within the body. The heart, for instance, rejects these fats and they end up as inorganic fatty deposits on the heart muscle itself. They end up blocking circulation, damage heart action, inhibit cell renewal and impede the free flow of blood and lymph fluids.

Science has proven that fats play an important role in the functioning of the entire body. Fats (lipids) are vital for all growth processing, renewal of cells, brain and nerve functions. Our energy resources are based on lipid metabolism. To function efficiently, cells require true polyunsaturated, live electron-rich lipids, present in abundance in raw Hemp Seed Oil.
Lipids are only water-soluble and free-flowing when bound to protein; thus the importance of protein-rich cottage cheese. When high quality, electron-rich fats are combined with proteins, the electrons are protected until the body requires energy. This energy source is then fully and immediately available to the body on demand, as nature intended.

Dr. Budwig claims that the diet is both a preventative and a curative. She says the absence of Linoleic-acids [in the average western diet] is responsible for the production of oxydase, which induces cancer growth and is the cause of many other chronic disorders.

The theory is: the use of oxygen in the organism can be stimulated by protein compounds of sulphuric content, which make Oils water-soluble and which is present in cheese, nuts, onion and leek vegetables such as leek, chive, onion and garlic, but especially cottage cheese.
It is essential to use only unrefined, cold-pressed Oils with high Linoleic Acid content, such as Hemp Seed- & Oils, Linseed, sunflower, soya, poppyseed, Walnut and Flax Oils. Such Oil should be consumed together with foods containing the right proteins otherwise the Oils will have the opposite effect, causing more harm than good.

The best combination is cottage cheese and Hemp Seed Oil. The Hemp Seed Oil should be organically grown, cold pressed and fresh. Carbohydrates containing natural sugar, such as dates, figs, pears, apples and grapes, can also be included in the diet. Honey is also beneficial. She feels most of the synthetic vitamin A preparations are bad because they contain oxidation products, but it is recommended that carotene as pro-vitamin A (from carrot) should be consumed. Vitamin B from buttermilk, yogurt and natural yeast is also beneficial.

A person requires approximately 4 oz. of cottage cheese mixed well with 1.5 oz. of Hemp Seed Oil daily. A blender or egg beater works fine. The mixture can be sweetened with honey or otherwise flavoured with natural additions like Fresh fruits and Honey.

Dr. Johanna Budwig’s mix:

Put in your blender:

  • 1 cup Organic low fat cottage cheese and 2 to 5 tablespoons of Hemp Seed Oil and enough water to make a soft blend.

Optional :

  • 1 to 3 Tablespoons freshly ground up Hemp Seeds (a food processor works fine). For those who can’t eat dairy products, you can substitute the cottage cheese with “Companion Nutrients” available through Nature’s Distributors in Arizona, USA. These are capsules containing dried sulfurated proteins and enzymes which activate the essential fatty acids. They guarantee that one capsule will activate one tablespoon of Oil.
  • Make it very soft and eat some of it every day.
  • Some people just add the above to their diet, while others follow a Program that she recommends:

The Program is as follows :

The patient has no nourishment on day 1 other than 250 ml (8.5 oz) of Hemp Seed Oil with honey plus freshly squeezed fruit juices (no sugar added)! In the case of a very ill person, champagne may be added on the first day in place of juice and is taken with the Hemp Seed Oil and honey. (Champagne is easily absorbable). (The champagne vehicle is easier to assimilate and get someone almost on their death-bed going again. A retention enema of 250 ml (8.5 oz) of Hemp seed Oil is another route to get this precious life-furthering, electron-rich Oil into the body. It can also be applied to the skin for trans-dermal absorption.)

SUGAR IS ABSOLUTELY FORBIDDEN. Grape juice may be added to sweeten any other freshly squeezed juices.

Other ‘forbiddens’ are :

  • All animal fats
  • All Salad Oils (this includes commercial mayonnaise)
  • All Meats (as they may contain chemicals & hormones)
  • Preserved Meats (the preservatives block metabolism of the EFA rich Oils)
  • Butter & Margarine

Must haves:

  • Freshly squeezed vegetable juices are fine – carrot, celery, apple and red beet.
  • Three times daily a warm tea is essential – peppermint, rose hips or grape tea – all sweetened as desired with honey. One cup of black tea before noon is fine.

Daily Plan

Before breakfast – a glass of liquid Acidophilus or Acidophilus tables are taken.


Muesli (regular cereal) is overlaid with 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of Hemp Seed Oil and honey and fresh fruit according to season – berries, cherries, apricots, peaches, grated apple. Vary the flavour from day to day. Use any nuts except peanuts! Herbal teas as desired or black tea. A 4 oz (120 g) serving of The Spread (directions below). This is fine to eat ‘straight’ like a custard, or add it to other foods taken in the day as you will see.

Morning Tea (10am)

A glass of fresh carrot juice, apple, celery, or beet-apple juice is taken.


Raw salad with Yogurt & Hemp Seed Oil Mayonnaise (directions below). In addition to ‘greens’ salads, use grated turnips, carrots, kohlrabi, radishes, sauerkraut or cauliflower. Horseradish, chives or parsley may be added for flavour.

Cooked Meal Course

Steamed vegetables, potatoes, or such grains such as rice, buck-wheat or millet may be served. To these add either The Spread or The Mayo – for flavour and to up your intake of Hemp Seed Oil. Also mix The Spread with potatoes for an especially hearty meal. Add caraway, chives, parsley or other organic herbs.


Mix fresh fruit other than those used for breakfast with The Spread, this time (instead of honey), flavoured using cream of lemon, vanilla or berries.

Afternoon Tea (4pm)

A small glass of natural wine (no preservatives) or champagne or fresh fruit juice with 1-2 tablespoons of honey-coated Flax and/or Hemp Seeds.


Have this early, at around 6pm. Make a hot meal using buckwheat, oat or soy cakes.

Cakes made from buckwheat are the very best and can be placed in a vegetable soup, or in a more solid form of cakes with herbal sauce. Sweet sauces & soups can always be given far more healing energy by adding The Spread. Only honey or grape juice can be used for sweeteners. NO white sugar (or brown!) Only freshly squeezed juices and NOT reconstituted juices (these contain preservatives) may be used. These must be completely natural.

‘The Spread’

How to prepare :

Place 250 ml (8.5 oz) Hemp Seed Oil into a mixer bowl and add one pound (450 g) 1% low fat Cottage Cheese and add 4 tablespoons (60 ml) Honey. Turn on the mixer and add just enough low fat milk or water to get the contents of the bowl to blend well together. In 5 minutes, a preparation of custard consistency results that has NO taste of the Oil (and no Oily ‘ring’ should be seen when you rinse out the bowl).

Alternatively, you can use Yogurt instead of Cottage Cheese in proportions of 1 oz (30 g) of Yogurt to 1 tablespoon (15 ml) each of Hemp Seed Oil and of honey and blend as above.

NOTE: When Hemp Seed Oil is blended like this, it does not cause diarrhoea even when given in large amounts. It reacts chemically with the (sulphur) proteins of the cottage cheese, yogurt, etc.

‘The Mayo’ (Mayonnaise)

How to prepare :

  • Mix together 2 tablespoons (30 ml) Hemp Seed Oil, 2 tablespoons (30 ml) milk and 2 tablespoons (30 ml) Yogurt.
  • Then add 2 tablespoons (30 ml) Lemon juice (or Apple Cider Vinegar) and add 1 teaspoon (2.5g) Mustard plus some herbs such as marjoram or dill.
  • Next add 2 or 3 slices of health food store pickles (no preservatives! – read label!) and a pinch of herbal salts.

This is a recommended diet and should be followed as a way of life. For people in remission, according to Dr. Budwig, you need to remain on this diet for a good 5 years. If you break the rules of this diet, Dr. Budwig reports, (i.e. eating preserved meats, candy, etc), the tumours will sometimes grow rapidly worse.

Hemp Seed Oil is readily denatured by oxygen, heat and light. Rancid Oil is bad for the health, so Oil must be fresh and refrigerated until used.
Hemp Seeds may also be used. Seeds need only be cracked in a food blender, or they may be ground in a coffee grinder or Hulled Hemp Seeds can be used. One needs three times the amount of seed to get the Oil equivalent. Seeds are high in calories, so one may gain weight. The seeds are also high in soluble fibre, so blending with liquid tends to produce ever-hardening “jellies”. Fresh-cracked seeds can be sprinkled on muesli and should be eaten immediately.
