If you are suffering from a chronic illness or an ongoing health issue, improving your food choices will be one of the cornerstones to support your health. Drink only pure water and herbal teas. Go on YouTube and look for some good stretching exercises to do daily. 2 or 3 times a week, get a good workout, and walk 20 or 30 minutes a day at a good steady pace.
The Budwig Vegetarian Approach
Have you heard of Dr. Budwig’s Vegetarian Protocol?
Put simply, if you eat good, healthy food, you will be healthier. That’s why we believe in the Budwig vegetarian approach.
On the Budwig plan, we encourage you to make small, achievable, practical changes, like switching out unhealthy food for fresh, nourishing options. You don’t need to go hungry, and your calorie intake is up to you.

The Origin Of The Budwig Protocol
Dr. Johanna Budwig, was an insightful clinician with a passion for developing an evidence-based, natural, and effective approach to health. Her research into essential fatty acids and the impact of food choices and holistic health on disease progression and prevention has inspired the works of conventional medics and naturopaths alike.
Dr. Budwig created a blueprint for health, based on a complete understanding of an individual’s physical and emotional needs as well as the benefits of nutrient-rich foods and lifestyle.
What Is The Budwig Approach?
As already stated, a lot of it is just common sense: eating natural, fresh food and focusing on nutritious organic fruits and vegetables. Add to this an attitude of respect – respect for the body’s ability to maintain and mend itself, given the right tools; respect for the food we eat, seeing the value in good food; and respect for our emotions, along with an understanding that every part of the body and mind is interlinked.
The Budwig approach includes simple healthy switches such as:
- Cutting out refined sugars for naturally sweet ingredients such as raw honey, pure stevia, or ripe fruits.
- Replace animal proteins with seeds, nuts, spirulina, plant sources of protein, and Budwig muesli.
- Reduce your dairy intake – try swapping cows’ milk for oat, almond, or rice milk.
- Reduce your wheat intake; gluten-free flour is now readily available, and rye, spelt and oat-based flours and baked products are naturally low in gluten.
- Swap processed or animal-derived oils and fats for cold-pressed, virgin or extra virgin plant oils.
