Linseed (Flaxseed) Oil and Cottage Cheese Help to Tackle Some 50 Common Illnesses

At the BUDWIG CENTER, we have accumulated several testimonials from people all over the world with various types of cancer and many other common illnesses. These individuals are now living healthy, normal lives because of following the Dr. Budwig program of linseed oil and cottage cheese. This program, as well as other vital lifestyle changes,  has made all the difference in their fight against chronic illness.

The world famous linseed oil and Quark (Cottage cheese) mixture of Dr. Budwig has proven helpful with all types of Cancer, as well as; Arthritis, Asthma, Heart Infarction, Irregular Heart Beat, Infertility, Psoriasis, Eczema (other skin diseases), Immune Deficiency Syndromes (Multiple Sclerosis and other Auto Immune Diseases), Diabetes, Lungs (respiratory conditions), Stomach Ulcers, Liver, Prostate, Strokes, Brain Tumors, Arteriosclerosis and other chronic diseases.

Omega 3 Is Essential For Good Health

There was a study done in 1994 with 121 women who had advanced breast cancer that spread to the lymph nodes. The study revealed that they had very low levels of omega-3 fatty acids in the breast tissue. Another study from Boston University using the very same type of tissue profiles demonstrated that patients with coronary artery disease also had low levels of EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids found in Omega 3 oils).

Dr. Johanna Budwig discovered that adequate amounts of omega 3 oils and sulphurated protein, which is contained in the Linseed oil and Cottage cheese combination, was a tremendous anti-cancer prevention and treatment strategy.

There are many plants that are rich in Omega 3, but linen or flax oil is the richest source of these fatty acids (naturally occurring variations not considered, 100g of oil contain 72g of polyunsaturated fatty acids, 54g of which are omega-3 acids).

When linseed oil is combined with protein (or more precisely, sulphurated amino acids, which is found in abundance in quark/cottage cheese) there is a chemical reaction that takes place that allows the highly unsaturated fatty acids to become water-soluble, enabling them to more easily enter the cells and flood the body with life-giving oxygen.

Dr. Budwig recognized the need to oxygenate the body because harmful microbes cannot live in the presence of oxygen. Every day we are exposed to microbes and pathogens, such as parasites, viruses, fungus, as well as harmful toxins that cause illnesses. However, these microbes and pathogens cannot survive in an oxygen-rich environment.

For example, products such as commercial cooking oils and margarine actually shut down the natural electrical field of our cells. Dr. Budwig stated that “artificial oils and trans fats (or partially hydrogenated oils) such as oils used in our kitchen….are extracted from corn, sunflowers, and other plants, by extreme heat, chemicals or other artificial processes, and not a natural process for cold extraction.”

As you know, our bodies produce over 500 million new cells every single day. Dr. Budwig pointed out that in producing new cells, there is a dipolarity between the electrically positive nucleus and the electrically negative cell membrane that contains high unsaturated fatty acids. Now when cell division takes place, the original cell and the new daughter cell must contain enough electron-rich fatty acids in its surface area to divide off completely from the old cell. When this process is interrupted by highly refined cooking oils and unhealthy fats, the body begins to allow chronic and terminal diseases to take hold of our bodies.

How to prepare Dr.Budwig’s oil-protien muesli

with Quark/Cottage cheese/Ricotta and Flaxseed (Linseed) Oil

Mix 2 tablespoons of low fat milk with 3 tablespoons linseed oil using an electric stick type blender until nice a smooth. (an electric blender is preferred as you can be surer the oil blends well with all the other ingredients)

Next add 1 teaspoon of honey and mix all 3 ingredients well together.

Now slowly add the low-fat quark or cottage cheese or Ricotta 2 tablespoons at a time and keep mixing until it is mixed well, putting in a total of 6 level tablespoons of Low Fat Quark/cottage cheese/Ricotta.

In a separate bowl put 2 tablespoons of freshly ground flaxseeds that you have ground up with a coffee grinder and covered with 1 teaspoon of honey.

Put some fruit or nuts over the seeds and honey.

Then finally pour the creamy mixture of quark, honey and oil over the flaxseed and honey and fruit. That is the original way Dr. Budwig liked to prepare it for her patients.

(See Optional) for more things you can add to the Muesli mixture.

IMPORTANT! Please be advised that step 2 (adding the flaxseeds) is not applicable to patients with cancer of the colon, rectum and especially patients who have had a colostomy as the seeds could irritate the intestinal wall.


If you are not able to get fresh pressed flaxseed oil or you would like to benefit from the nutrition that the flax shell provides then you can make the muesli using flaxseeds instead of flaxseed oil.

  • Put 12 tablespoons of organic flaxseeds into a bowl and triple the amount pure water to cover the seeds and then soak overnight.
  • Using an upright stick type electric blender, grind and blend up half the amount of soaked seeds (you need to consume the muesli twice a day thus the other half of presoaked seeds will be used in the afternoon).
  • Add to 6 tablespoons of low fat (2% or less) cottage cheese or quark (organic if possible).
  • 3 tablespoons of low-fat skim milk (avoid UHT milk) and blend with electric stick type blender for a minute.
  • Now add 2 teaspoons of raw honey and add fruit or nuts of your choice. (see Optional)


Add the juice of ½ a lemon makes it very palatable and a great fresh taste. Also, fruit, especially berries can be added. Be creative and for a change some days try adding things like parsley, garlic, dried fruits, ground hemp seeds, ground almonds, ground sunflower seeds, Brazil nuts, and pumpkin seeds (do not use peanuts), vanilla, cinnamon, raw cocoa or grated coconut. Some prefer a touch of cayenne peppe.


This muesli turns rancid after 20 minutes, so it must be ingested immediately. Do not grind and store seeds to be used later.  The flaxseed oil must be kept cold, so store it in the fridge. Try to purchase directly from the manufacturer, (e.g. Barlean´s, N. America, or Linovita, Europe), or from an herbalist/health food shop. The cottage cheese/quark can be frozen if necessary.
