Budwig Center warning about Budwig Protocol
The Budwig Center in Spain was founded by Lloyd Jenkins after meeting Dr. Johanna Budwig in the year 2000. Dr. Budwig signed an authorization for Lloyd to set up a clinic in Spain using her methods. Since then, countless people from all parts of the world have benefited from the Budwig Center using the original Budwig diet and protocol. The Budwig Center has diligently tried to share the Budwig diet with the whole world so as many as possible can experience the benefits.
A warning about self-appointed Budwig experts!
The Budwig diet became very popular back in the 70’s and 80’s and as the Budwig diet seems fairly simple and straightforward, many clinics and individuals have added it to their cancer treatment program. However, many are not implementing the Budwig diet correctly and therefore are not getting the excellent results that Dr. Budwig achieved. This reminds me of the expression “a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing”. In fact, Dr. Budwig herself warned her patients not to combine any artificial mineral or vitamin supplements, and artificial oxygen therapies with her flaxseed oil and cottage cheese diet. However countless alternative clinics are doing just that. Dr. Budwig said that doing both at the same time will ‘cancel’ out the benefits and each therapy and you basically achieve nothing.
Budwig Center, warning about Budwig Protocol reporters or accredited researchers
Another warning needs to be giving in regards to people who claim to be reporters or accredited researchers offering information on the Budwig protocol in books and websites. Time and again we have come across information from these sources that are totally inaccurate. For example, Thomas and Sarah Corriher of www.HealthWyze.com have told all their subscribers to use full-fat cottage cheese or Quark along with the flaxseed oil. This does not work! The fat content cannot be more than 2% otherwise it will not properly mix with the flaxseed oil and become water soluble. This is a serious problem as the benefits of oxygenizing the blood to weaken cancer cannot take place.
Other websites claim that you can mix it with yogurt, kefir, eggs, or some special food supplements. None of this was approved by Dr. Budwig and therefore the Budwig Center does not recommend it. Cancer is a life-threatening illness and therefore it is a serious matter when a clinic or researcher tells a cancer patient to follow a certain procedure but gives them partial or totally inaccurate information.
Dr. Johanna Budwig was an avid biochemist striving to show cancer patients how to apply her research. She was open to sharing her findings with practitioners that sincerely wanted to continue helping people diagnosed with cancer. She wrote books and held interviews so that her research would not be kept secret.
The basic Budwig diet is based on her research and this information can be shared for free! Anyone trying to make money selling a part of her research that might have been kept secret or their take on this diet would have questionable motives. We are thankful that many writers are sharing her information for free on their blogs as do we offer a free downloadable guide on our homepage at www.budwigcenter.com
So why come to the Budwig Center if you can learn about the Budwig Diet for free?
We believe the Budwig diet is ideal for maintaining optimum health as well as an important pillar in keeping the body strong while treating cancer or a chronic illness. Having said that, there are myths online that Dr. Budwig used only flaxseed and cottage cheese in her protocol. This is a great abbreviation of what her protocol is about. In the event of a diagnosis and planning for the best treatment, having the correct information is the beginning, as is the need to personalize one’s therapies, including the diet!
In our many years operating the Budwig Center and helping patients apply the Budwig protocol, we have had this fact confirmed over and over again, that a personalized approach is the key. We cannot say that 100% of cancer patients will benefit from taking the flaxseed oil and cottage cheese, or sauerkraut, or other healthy ingredients included in her diet plan. We have seen patients fasting or doing enemas that were not appropriate for their condition. Others push themselves with too much exercise.
In Dr. Budwig’s interview with Lothar Horneise, she brought up other factors that certainly cannot be overlooked when a person has a cancer diagnosis. Here is an excerpt from this interview:
But shouldn’t all those people who eat these heated oils get cancer?
Dr. Johanna Budwig:
“It is very important to view the person as a unit consisting of body, soul, and psyche. However, the factor that is primarily effective at the moment can be quite different. I am still convinced today that if a woman has a very poor marriage, and has to deal with suppression and taunts from her husband day in and day out, then I cannot help her with quark-flax oil. All three factors belong together in a human person.”
We are very grateful for kinesiology testing and other tests like the Vega device and GSR scan to tell us food intolerances in a person, finding the foods which are beneficial for one’s body and being able to also provide the most effective food-based, natural remedies. In nature and in one’s local area a practitioner could easily be convinced of the amazing effects of a certain active ingredient and its effect on cancer patients. There are so many useful ingredients in nature (turmeric, Chinese and medicinal mushrooms, bee pollen, essential oils etc.) and in reading about others’ experiences one could easily hope for the same results another person has had. Dr. Budwig’s research showed her that taking food and herbal remedies as natural as possible were the key, but she never became an advocate of a certain active ingredient in particular when it came to herbal remedies.
Budwig Center relies on our test to make all the difference in helping a patient with a compromised digestive tract or the immune system that logically will not be able to process all types of food or remedies. No patients receive the same instructions about diet or remedies, even though they may have the same diagnosis. We are focusing on treating the ill, not the illness. Once a patient is strong, it is true that the Budwig diet is easy enough to follow as it is not an extremely restrictive diet.
Apart from getting tests to personalize your diet plan, we must acknowledge that depending on a diet only when you are a cancer patient is usually not going to be enough. It is important, but you will need guidance and support to know what else is affecting your health at such a crucial time. We have therapists that can address a patient’s energy and emotional needs, doctors to analyze pathogens affecting your immune system, naturopaths to help you apply what you are learning and nurse and other staff to administer detoxing therapies.
What did Budwig Center have to do to comply with Spanish law to be considered an oncological clinic by the ministry?
In 2015, after many years of operating as a wellness clinic and realizing we had a team that could treat cancer patients, we decided to take things one step further and become a recognized oncological clinic here in Spain. For this, we had to make quite a few changes and implement certain protocols to comply with Spanish law.
Spain is actually one of the most demanding countries when it comes to healthcare laws. We had to implement a software and data system to protect our patients’ sensitive information; we had to have formal contracts with doctors, a nurse, and an oncologist. We had to comply with inspections regarding our advertising, marketing and the standards of premises.
The inspections mean a thorough monitoring of the clinical operations and systems to comply with clinical standards. In the end, it is our patients that will benefit from this quality control and upgrade. This makes us proud as we notice the difference in the comments and feedback that we have been getting related to patients’ experience as well as the outcome after returning home. Here you can see the final document granting us permission to officially call ourselves an oncological clinic.
