Just the mention of fresh milk, whipped cream, cheese, and butter can make a dairy lover swoon. However, if you’re among the almost 75% of the population that suffers from lactose intolerance, it’s a whole different feeling. One significant yet often missed correlation is that lactose intolerance, for many is often related to Candida.
If this is a problem you face we invite you to watch the following video and then keep reading to learn more about candida and lactose intolerance:
Candida Vs Lactose Intolerance
Candida is healthy bacteria in our gut that has grown out of control due to excessive amounts of refined white sugar, processed foods, and the use of antibiotics. This ordinarily healthy bacteria under these conditions morphs into a damaging fungus, which we call Candida.
For many, it’s the Candida that exacerbates the dairy intolerance. Once the Candida fungus is under control, many have been surprised to realize they are once again able to enjoy a measure of dairy products.

At the Budwig Center, we encourage all our cancer patients, as part of the Budwig diet, to consume quark or cottage cheese along with flaxseed oil. This mixture is the famous recipe of Dr. Joanna Budwig.
However, from time to time, we encounter patients that are not able to handle the dairy. Inevitably these patients suffer from Candida, and interestingly to note, we have found that many cancer patients suffer from different levels of candida infection.
Treat The Cause Not Just the Symptom
Once we complete personalized testing using our Vega and GSR scan systems, we often detect the level of Candida in a patient and are then able to provide a natural solution specific to them. What seems to work best for many with lactose intolerance and Candida infection is the consumption of diatomaceous earth.
Food grade diatomaceous earth puts a thin coating over the Candida fungus as well as over other harmful bacteria, parasites, and pathogens, allowing the body to expel them later. Within about 2 to 3 weeks of consuming diatomaceous earth, most people see a dramatic improvement with their Candida symptoms.
Restore Gut Flora
The next step is to restore gut flora. One fundamental way to do so is by the consumption of fermented foods such as organic kombucha and sauerkraut. Dr. Budwig specifically had all her patients consuming sauerkraut and sauerkraut juice as part of the Budwig diet. Especially for the last meal of the day, which aids with digestion.
After about 30 days of naturally treating Candida, many patients can then enjoy the flaxseed oil and cottage cheese Budwig mix. We recommend the patient starts off slowly with just one serving per day, and if all goes well, then increases to two servings per day as prescribed by Dr. Budwig. The flaxseed oil and cottage cheese (Quark) is not only beneficial for people with cancer but also helps with some 50 common illnesses, so try including this famous Budwig recipe in your diet today!
