I recently was told about something called the Budwig Diet. It was developed by a German doctor who claims remarkable success treating cancer patients. It consists of combining flaxseed oil, cottage cheese and ground flaxseeds into a mix. Not very appetizing, I admit.
Dr. Budwig claims a ridiculous success rate of 80%+ if used regulalrly in conjunction with a strict, healthy diet. I also noticed a few reports that use of flaxseed may indeed have some possibilities in cancer treatment. But any significant results seems to be in the early phases.
I am a skeptic by nature, but am wondering if anyone has tried this diet, know someone who has, or knows anything about it. I would never consider using this as a replacement for legitimate, proven treatments. But given the relatively tame ingredients of cottage cheese and flaxseed, I don't imagine it could do any harm.
Any thoughts appreciated.
