Dr. Johanna Budwig developed a testing system in her work as a German biochemist working for the German government. Based on her research on fatty acids she developed a diet that she believed was useful in the treatment of cancer.
Today we have additional blood tests that can be done. The blood morphological test enables us to evaluate the shapes and other properties of your blood cells and analyze your state of health. We can detect nutritional deficiencies which can be adversely affecting your health.
We ask all our cancer patients to bring with them, recent blood test not more than 3 months old.
However, at times we may need more in depth tests that have not been included in the original blood work.
In addition to these standard blood tests the morphological test can better detect chemical changes in the blood, and other disorders sooner, in its infancy stages. This enables us to better ‘balance’ your diet and offer lifestyle recommendations that will greatly improve your health.
So, although the Budwig diet is the same for everyone, we need to always personalize it, as you may have some specific needs and/or food intolerances or allergies at the moment that need to be addressed.
Our blood is often referred to as the ‘River of Life’ as it transports oxygen, nutrients and other life-giving agents to some 37 trillion of cells in our body. Our blood also removes cellular waste from our cells to the liver or kidneys where they are naturally eliminated.
