Dr. Johanna Budwig’s Story

Johanna Budwig B-W

Johanna Budwig was born on September 30, 1908.

Shortly after completing her doctorate in 1949, and beginning her secular career as State Expert for Chemical Research on Drugs and Fats, she made some important discoveries that revolutionized the study of fats and eventually led to her development of the Budwig Protocol in 1952.

Budwig’s groundbreaking discoveries clearly demonstrated the health hazards of margarine and other highly processed oils. Additionally, her protocol offers an effective solution to so many health issues. Dr Johanna Budwig did not fear speaking openly about her discoveries and the fantastic protocol that she had developed. As a result, the Central Committee for Cancer Research took her to court.

Through the years, Johanna Budwig won over 30 court cases. Unfortunately, this robbed valuable time that she needed to do more research and clinical studies. Even though she lacked the definite clinical data that would prove the effectiveness of her diet, when the Central Committee for Cancer was fighting her in court, the judge could clearly see that Budwig’s research was clear and conclusive. Many were already following her protocol and sharing their incredible results. Her patients – many of whom were terminal – were recovering thanks to following her protocol; the success of her diet spoke for itself!

Dr. Budwig was considered an expert in several fields, such as pharmacology, physics, and chemistry – more specifically, the chemistry of fats. Today, her discoveries are still held in high regard.

She sadly passed away on May 19, 2003, after a fall in her bathroom. At the time of her unfortunate passing, she was 95 years of age.

She had conducted over 200 lectures worldwide and was very popular in the United States.

Her death was a great loss, not only for Germany but for the whole world. She continued her research and studies up to the time of her death, leaving some incomplete.

Her records indicate that, over the last few decades of her life, she treated some 2500 people with very positive results.

Meeting Dr. Johanna Budwig

In August 2000, Dr Lloyd Jenkins, the founder of the Budwig Center, had the wonderful privilege of personally meeting Dr. Johanna Budwig in Stuttgart, Germany.

When Dr Jenkins met her, she was in her early nineties; she was very alert and coherent, which resulted in an enriching discussion.

During Lloyd’s visit with Dr Johanna Budwig, they discussed numerous patients from different parts of the world, who visited her to receive her therapies – some in a very weakened state – and how her protocol helped them.

After Lloyd’s visit, which included a detailed analysis of her research, therapies, and protocols, Dr. Budwig agreed to grant Dr Jenkins the authorization to use her program and treatment methods. She confirmed this in writing in the agreement that appears on this page
