Third round of chemo gone – yesterday. The ‘baby bottle’ still hangs from Ricardo’s side and will be there for 46 hours – until Sunday afternoon. What we did today? Spent the day outside, -6oC, watching our son in his first ski lesson of his life, in Norquay, Banff, AB! The same man who just 3 weeks ago spent his second day of chemo laying in bed and without eating for almost 12 hours…
This explains how Ricardo is dealing with his treatment and his cancer. A huge improvement from before – this last week was a relief after so much stress. A friend is here for two weeks and his presence is making Ricardo feels so much better that will be hard to let him go. But, as I said, it is ‘one day at a time’ – the easiest and only way to deal with life.
As the title of this post suggests, I want to talk about one of Ricardo’s ‘protocol’ recommended by the naturopath: The Budwig Diet. Budwig is named after Dr. Johanna Budwig, scientist (biochemist), author, lecturer, and 7 times Nobel Prize nominee – one of the best cancer researchers in Europe. Her formula? Flax seed oil mixed with cottage cheese!
‘I learned that this substance UNIQUELY kills cancer cells by the billions and makes every other cell in our body healthier – at the same time’, says Bill Henderson in his book Cancer-Free, Your Guide to Gentle, Non-toxic Healing. ‘The cottage cheese is a perfect carrier for the oil. Once the flax seed oil, with its high concentration of Omega 3 oil, gets to the cell wall (membrane), it surrounds it with little magnets which ‘suck in’ oxygen. This oxidation of the cells has been recognized since 1931 as the primary way to make healthy cells healthier and kill cancer cells’.
Yes, I know that it seems unbelievable. Well, I must say that it is far from the tastiest thing you’ll ever eat – you have to eat this thing almost religiously: as a medicine, a remedy that will cure you. Did I just say cure?
‘This diet is far and away the most successful anti-cancer diet in the world. What she (Dr. Budwig) has demonstrated to my initial disbelief but lately, to my complete satisfaction in my practice is: CANCER IS EASILY CURABLE. The treatment is dietary/lifestyle, the response is immediate; the cancer cell is weak and vulnerable; the precise biochemical breakdown point was identified by her in 1951 (yes, 1951!) and is specifically correctable, in vitro (test tube) as well as in vivo (real)’, said oncologist Dr. Dan C. Roehm, M.D., FACP (Fellow of the American College of Physicians), in ‘Townsend Letter for Doctors’, July 1990.
