is probably the most important article on cancer you will ever read.
Just recently I sat and interviewed a genius who has continued and
expanded on Johanna Budwig’s work. I returned to my office to do some
homework (research, reading, etc.) and finally, I fully understand
what's going on, and I'm passing it on to you.
there was Otto Warburg who was awarded the 1931 Nobel Prize for medicine
for his describing the metabolism of a cancer cell. He stated that the
cell suddenly became anaerobic (without oxygen) and required massive
amounts of glucose (sugar) to metabolize in a form that could only be
described as fermentation:
prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the normal oxygen
respiration of body cells by an anaerobic cell respiration." -- Otto
is only the beginning.
cell takes in glucose (sugar;
cancer loves sugar)
and gives off lactic acid which creates an acidic environment. Again,
this is something that has been known for years. Cancer needs an acidic
environment to flourish, and conversely,
survive in a balanced alkaline environment.
again, this is
only the beginning. As Dr Garnett discovered in his research for Poly-MVA,
there is an electrical connection to cancer too.
Chinese medicine for centuries (some 4 to 6 thousand years ago) has
described the life force as energy. They mapped the meridian system that
was re-mapped in 1994 by conventional medicine (using high-tech
instruments that measured the tiniest amount of electricity). Along
these meridians travels our life force: Chi (Qi) according to the
Chinese, though we can call it energy.
aside, in 1968 it was discovered that living cells produce light. The
amount of light determines the health of the cell. The brighter the
light, the healthier the cell. Interesting stuff, eh?
fifties, Johanna Budwig added her two cents to the cancer equation. She
said that in normal, healthy cells "we find a dipolarity between the
electrically positive nucleus and the electrically negative cell
membrane with its highly unsaturated fatty acid."
goes on to state that, "Electrons have a great affinity for oxygen—they
love it. They attract oxygen and stimulate our breathing…." By
"breathing" she’s referring to the breath of life in each living cell.
have the picture of the healthy cell, a cell that will grow, thrive, and
replicate in a normal manner. Budwig then goes on to describe the
formation of cancer by first describing the changes to the cell
cell membrane consists of lipids, or fats. The highly unsaturated fatty
acid she refers to are called omega-3 fatty acids. These are related to
the "fish oils" that even conventional medicine has picked up on. You
won’t find a drug store in America that doesn’t have a row of fish oils
on sale. These oils are also found in other foods (as we will show you
below), but mostly in flax.
Another lipid in a cell wall is cholesterol. And you thought it was a
terrible thing. The cholesterol in each one of your cells forms a
"hydrophobic" bond within the cell wall. Hydrophobic means "fear of
water." It’s a cute way to describe this function of our cells, but in
our lives it simply describes the reason we don’t melt in a rainstorm or
fall apart when we take a shower or bath. Our cells resist water.
Without this resistance, we would be water-soluble and we'd all dissolve
in a rainstorm.
diets in this country (and in Budwig’s country at the time) lack these
highly unsaturated fatty acids and contain an excess of man made oils
known as trans fats (or partially hydrogenated oils). These oils are
very much like cholesterol and our bodies cannot tell the difference.
These oils get into our cell walls and destroy the electrical charge.
Without the charge, our cells start to suffocate. Without the oxygen,
the only way the cell can replicate is anaerobically. (They also are
very tough oils and have a 20-year shelf life. They impede the process
of cellular exchange, or letting nutrition in and letting wastes out.
Trans fats are also responsible for Type II diabetes, since insulin is a
very large molecule it has a difficult time passing through a cell wall
created with man made fats and not cholesterol.)
see what’s happening?
take a minute to look at our diets. I once went to the store with a
naturopath who took along an instrument that measured very small amounts
of electricity. It was so sensitive that before we went he measured the
charges along my meridians and acupuncture points.
store, he measured the energy inside various foods. Yes, everything has
energy and the better the food, the more the energy. He showed me that
organic vegetables contained more energy than conventionally grown
foods. When we got outside, he opened a few cans of vegetables we’d
picked up. The beans and tomatoes (both canned) had more energy than the
asparagus and canned fruits (which were nearly dead). He said that
tomatoes and beans are the only vegetables to buy canned.
is electrical. To the Oriental physician, disease begins with a blockage
or disruption in energy flow. In this country, disease begins with
symptoms. The blockage or disruption in energy flow is about 7 or 8
steps before symptoms. So, as you can guess, preventative medicine is
practiced in the Orient, and not here in our western, conventional
to our little cancer cell and Dr Budwig: she states there are many
reasons for a cell to lose its charge, but peanut butter is a very
common one. Can you believe it? Something as simple as peanut butter
causing your cancer? Most peanut butters are hydrogenated. Why? To keep
from separating. Go look at your natural peanut butters. Many are kept
in the refrigerator section because that is how they keep them from
way, she also went on to describe some of the collateral damage from
chemotherapy: she said that chemotherapy causes this loss of energy in
healthy cells too; that chemotherapy and radiation destroyed the normal
energy flow in healthy cells making them ripe for cancer. She attacked
the cancer industry for killing the cancer when they should focus on
healing the healthier cells so they could over grow the cancer cells. In
other words, take care of the healthy cells and the cancer will take
care of itself.
little aside here: as a writer, I must be responsible for all I write.
If I make a claim that the National Cancer Institute buried hydrazine
sulfate by killing off the cancer patients in a study, then I’d better
be able to back this up. We have laws in this country. We are not free
to lie about a business and in doing so cause them monetary damage. If
you pass on a chain letter that libels a specific company, you are
guilty of libel and can be prosecuted (there’s a case already on
record). So, anything I say at my web site or here in these newsletters
had better be backed up with facts or I can be sued.
what happened to Dr Budwig when she attacked the cancer industry.
She attacked them thusly: "It is not correct to regard the problem of
tumors simply as a problem of too much growth and thereby to instigate
all manners and means of growth inhibiting treatments…."
Central Committee for Cancer Research that was studying and creating
these chemotoxic drugs didn’t like this woman running around making
these statements that surely injured their industry and so they sued her
in court for libel: for telling lies and hurting the wonderful people
making these wonderful drugs.
court, the judge, after having reviewed the evidence from both sides,
pulled the cancer research people aside and told them not to take on
this woman. The court records quote the presiding judge: "Doctor
Budwig’s documents and papers are conclusive. There would be a scandal
in the scientific worlds, because the public would certainly support
understand the import of this? This woman had a documented method for
healing cancer and the medical community did not. They could kill cancer
cells, but they couldn’t cure it. Budwig could help heal cancer by diet
the real sad part is, science has known the cancer/fat connection for
years. Years prior to Budwig’s research they knew there was something in
the fat. Years after her initial work we know that a high fat diet can
lead to cancer. We also know that the Mediterranean diet is 60% fat, but
they have a very low incidence of cancer. So we know that not all fats
are the same. The Mediterranean diet is high in olive oil.
now, you know about highly unsaturated fatty acids, commonly referred to
as omega-3 fatty acids. They are also called Essential Fatty Acids
(EFAs). They are called
not because they are optional. They are not optional. They are essential
to health because the body cannot make them itself.
though they have been essential to health since the beginning of time,
it is only recently that a group of international experts gathered at
The National Institute of Health in Washington, D.C. to discuss the
importance of Omega 3 fatty acids to human health. They came up with a
recommendation for AI (Adequate Intake) of 2.2 grams of LNA (Alpha
Linolenic Acid, the EFA found in flax, fish, olive, and other oils). AI
is different from the RDA (Required Daily Allowance) which is determined
by our government. Many nutritionists feel that the RDAs, as
established, are just enough to keep us all on the verge of illness.
can we get this requirement into our diet?
people take flax oil pills or brave a spoonful of the oil itself.
Apparently, this is not the best or most effective way to take flax oil.
Taking flax oil creates an acidic environment. Next, flax oil alone is
missing all the co-factors to potentiate its benefits: magnesium, zinc,
B vitamins, etc. Co-factors are those things that help something to
work. Vitamin C is not ascorbic acid; vitamin C is ascorbic acid with
the co-factors bioflavanoids, copper, and calcium.
finally, taking flax oil capsules is not the best way to take it because
the oils are not "body-compatible:" water-soluble and bio-available.
They will not be stored in the body as well as if they were
water-soluble. The health benefits that are potentially received via
fatty acid metabolism will be limited or absent without the conversion
Johanna Budwig solved this problem with her simple recipe that made the
oils water-soluble: three tablespoons of flax oil to a third of a cup of
cottage cheese. It tastes terrible, but I’ve experimented with this
recipe and added all sorts of good stuff to make it even better.
this form, mixed with the sulfured protein, the oil becomes
water-soluble. Now the oils will stay with your body. They will bring
the charge back into each cell. Healthy cells will flourish and
unhealthy cells will starve. The oxygenated healthy non-acidic
environment will, as Budwig points out in her lectures, knock out the
get these oils from our foods? Yes, but to get 2.2 grams of LNA, you
would have to eat….
cups of Wheat Germ
cups of Alfalfa Sprouts
of Mixed Nuts and Peanuts
slices of Whole Wheat Bread
cup English Walnuts
cups Tuna Salad
Eggs (6 Free-Range Eggs!)
quarts Milk 2%
cups Frosted Mini Wheats
you can see, it's going to be difficult to get your daily requirements
from your diet alone. And here I have a very special surprise for you.
interviewed the man who has continued on Johanna Budwig's work, here in
Minnesota. Omega-3 fatty acids (EFAs) have a long history here in
Minnesota. They were first discovered at the University of Minnesota in
the late twenties, and some 20 years later were named "Omega"-3 fatty
name is Stan Mann, and he has not only discovered a process for
stabilizing milled flax seed (it normally goes rancid in just fifteen
minutes), he's created a product from this process that adds rice bran,
many other nutritional co-factors to aid in fatty acid metabolism such
as magnesium B6, B12, Vit C, Vit E, zinc, and others.
Even greater amounts of antioxidant spectrums are added
to help control the living fire that is created when your cells are
suddenly hit with this "super" oxidative nutrition (Additionally, when
cells find super nutrition, they dump their toxins immediately and
without antioxidants to help clean up, you could get sick and feel
terribly rotten from this process).
Working with the University Scientists, Stan has also helped to create a
blood test that will measure how your body is storing these essential
fats in addition to or in place of unhealthy fats. They've even
trademarked one blood test whose results are called the Inflammation
Index. It actually measures the body’s potential to produce
Inflammation should interest all of you, since the medical news lately,
as well as television commercials, are hot with Cox2 inhibiting
anti-inflammatory drugs like Celebrex or Vioxx. Next time you see their
ad on TV, pay attention to the side effects. Science cannot inhibit the
Cox2 without side effects. Your NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory
drugs like Aspirin or Motrin) all have terrible side effects and if you
use them over a period of time you WILL feel the effects, because they
are not just "side" effects, they ARE the effects of these drugs.
see, when you inhibit the Cox2 enzyme using NSAIDS this same process
inhibits Cox1 production and hence all prostaglandin production, even
those prostaglandins that are protecting the stomach lining and kidney
This produces the side effects.
was supposed to be fixed with the new Cox2 inhibitors that do not
inhibit Cox1 production, but sadly, look at the side effects.
go back a bit here to Johanna Budwig. There is a book available by her
called: Flax Oil As a True Aid Against Arthritis, Heart Infarction,
Cancer, and Other Diseases. I used this book to help write this
article. Now I want you to note that she aims at three disorders: heart
disease, cancer, and
Yes, there are the other diseases (like behavioral disorders: ADD, ADHD,
and a host of others), but note the arthritis. This is just one more
connection between her work and Stan Mann's work. With continued intake
of water-soluble omega-3 fatty acids, your Inflammation Index drops and
you need less and less NSAIDS or Cox2 inhibitors; the EFAs increase the
effectiveness of NSAIDs and Cox2 inhibitors, but reduce their damaging
side effects. This was proven by the good Dr Budwig, and Stan, with his
new product, Omegasentials™; he's taken it
all one step further creating a product that is easily taken daily (you
can put it on your cereal, in your yogurt, or in your morning breakfast
juice). His company is also about to print an educational book that
provides recipe ideas for all kinds of ways to incorporate the valuable
supplement in your normal dietary habits like cookies, breads, muffins,
tell you right now, in all my years of researching cancer,
Omegasentials™ is the single most exciting product I have found to date.
Johanna Budwig, in her life time, according to Stan Mann's research, had
a better success rate against cancer than any therapy to date.
know she helped more than her chemotherapy counterparts at the time. The
German judicial system helped to demonstrate that.
new product, Omegasentials™, takes Budwig's work a step further. Mix it
with water and you'll see that it is already water-soluble. The oils do
not rise to the top. It contains all the co-factors that potentiate
(make work better) the action of omega-3 fatty acids, and they add the
antioxidants needed to help control the healing oxidative energy created
by bringing healthy oils into the body
(not to mention cleaning up dead cancer cells).
added bonus, they include Tuna Oil to the formula. Stan Mann happens to
be a vegan. Vegans do not eat fish products. However, he felt so
strongly about how our bodies need the DHA (docosahexaenoic acid;
important for maintaining the fluidity and function of cell membranes,
particularly in the retina and the brain) from fish oils, that he felt
he had to include it in this product. Why? Because the average American
either drinks too much caffeine, alcohol, or smokes too much and uses up
their stores of DHA. Even those of us who don't smoke take in enough
second hand smoke that depletes our DHA.
when stored in your body, fights depression. It is theorized that
Postpartum Depression is caused by the developing fetus, who needs DHA
for brain development, during the last stages of pregnancy, pulls all
the DHA from the mother (there usually isn't all that much to begin with
since our diets are so poor) leaving her bereft of DHA, hence the
massive depression after giving birth. Increase the stores of DHA and
you help prevent that depression and possibly get off your Prozac or
whatever other drug that's helping you with one hand and killing you
with the other.
all the brouhaha (because they're non toxic) about anti-angiogenesis
drugs (the drugs that stop the growth of new blood vessels to a tumor)
lately, perhaps you should know this: You already know that I prefer
natural anti-angiogenesis substances to the drugs (because they are
cheaper and safer) but did you know that your polyunsaturated oils (corn
oils sold in supermarkets everywhere) promote the growth of small blood
vessels (by promoting the production of "bad" prostaglandins)?
No To Drugs
Omega-3 oils, the oils found in Budwig's recipe and in Omegasentials™
inhibit angiogenesis by inhibiting the prostaglandins that promote it.
there you have it. Omegasentials is the best product I've yet to find to
prevent and fight existing cancers, reverse heart disease, prevent and
treat arthritis, prevent and treat depression and a variety of mental
disorders, and it has one more added benefit to you athletes out there.
Remember back where Johanna Budwig talked about how electrons loves
oxygen? Well, the company making Omegasentials™, Integrity Direct, Inc.,
is receiving letters from their users. And these letters are confirming
what Stan Mann theorized all along.
you've ever worked out, you've probably felt that "burn" you get from a
good work out whether you're lifting weights, playing tennis, or running
long distances. It's caused by using up your oxygen stores. The muscles
then produce lactic acid by burning glycogen without oxygen,
and this lactic acid is what causes the burn.
letters from users tell a different story. No matter how much they work
out, lift, or run, they feel less and less of the burn; not during, or
even after their workout. Recovery is much, much quicker too:
Mike and Kati who successfully participated in the World Duathelon
Championships held in October 2000 in France: "I was third overall and
Mike was first in his age group too, and the amazing thing is we weren’t
hurting afterward! Mike said, ‘My gosh, my legs just don’t hurt,’ and we
both were expecting them to the next day, and they didn’t! So, it’s
going exactly the way you said it was, and we can’t thank you enough…."
come back to the basics: "Let your food be your medicine." When your
body gets the nutrition it needs you stay healthy. If you are sick, you
get better. This is the best food product I've yet to discover and you
will not ever find my home without it.
