When many people hear the word ‘diet,’ they’re immediately concerned that what follows is an extreme weight loss regime, a list of unpleasant and tasteless foods, and a host of other restrictions that will take all the enjoyment out of life.
Fortunately, the Dr. Budwig Diet and Food Plan is quite the opposite. Dr. Johanna Budwig’s focus was to encourage her patients, as well as all of us, to enjoy a balanced selection of foods that contribute to optimum health. So, in reality, the Budwig Diet is a healthy way of eating that everyone should adopt, not just cancer patients.
Simple and Easy
Dr. Budwig’s food plan allows you to enjoy many of your favorite meals. The principal factor is that now you choose quality food products and natural ingredients. For example, when preparing desserts, instead of using refined white sugar, you replace it with natural sweeteners such as stevia, honey, and fruits. Refined oils are replaced with cold pressed coconut, sunflower, safflower and olive oil. Rather than using white flour, try Spelt and whole grain flour. Instead of standard table salt, opt for Himalayan or Celtic sea salt. Steaming your vegetables is ideal because that way you retain most of the nutritional benefits. These are just a few examples.
A Natural Remedy
Because toxins are one of the main factors that contribute to various diseases, controlling them is essential. A regular intake of fruits and vegetables helps you to actively detoxify your body which is a fundamental part of our diet plan. We recommend you use organic produce whenever possible so that you can enjoy the full benefits of all the nutrients and vitamins. Dr. Budwig was a vegetarian, so most of her recipes focus on meals without meat or fish.

The Budwig Center Kitchen
At the Budwig Center, we have a dedicated kitchen area where we prepare dishes for our patients so that they can see firsthand how delightful it is to follow the Budwig food plan. We only use natural and organic ingredients. Our goal is to teach our patients how to make balanced meals so that upon returning home they are fully equipped to follow this healthy lifestyle and continue to give their body what it needs to thrive.
The Budwig kitchen is a separate area from the clinic but nearby. We decorated it in a way that makes you feel at home. It is not open to the public because we wanted this to be a comfortable space for patients and their companions to enjoy a meal in a relaxed environment. There is room for 16 people to eat at a time.
For all our patients we provide the complete Budwig Guide which includes details of the foods to avoid and foods recommended to follow her plan.
We have prepared a sample of the guide for all to enjoy. Click the link below so you too can follow the simple steps to healthy eating.
