Budwig diet and protocol: tips and frequently asked questions

ctd. from previous page

Question 135: Can I dilute the quark/flaxseed oil mix with freshly pressed juices? My mother refuses to drink the required juices that I prepare from carrots, grapes, etc. I think she might accept them better if I mixed some - say - carrot juice in the already mixed quark/flaxseed oil.


While Dr Budwig never mentioned "diluting" her basic mix into a "smoothie"-type drink, cases such as the above seem to call for flexibility. So by all means "disguise" the juice within the cottage cheese/flax oil mix and add whatever may make it more enticing to your loved one's taste buds, such a fresh fruit etc. (Also see How can one overcome a lack of appetite? and Dr. Budwig’s Treatment Advice for Very Ill Cancer Patients.)

Generally, try to "eat" a smoothie, i.e. don't gulp it down but make sure to mix it with saliva before swallowing. The importance of proper mastication (= pre-digestion) can hardly be overestimated (compare e.g. Dr. F.X. Mayr’s research into the link between nutrition, dietary habits, intestinal/digestive function and overall health & beauty). (credits: Healing Cancer Naturally and Lothar Hirneise)

Question 136: Can I use sodium bicarbonate (such as one or two teaspoons a day in a glass of water) with the Budwig protocol?


The time-honoured standby bicarbonate of soda more recently has been popularized by Italian oncologist Dr. Tullio Simoncini (see Treating Cancer & Destroying Tumors with Baking Soda). While no reason springs to mind while taking small amounts of baking soda (as far apart from meals as possible) should interfere with the Budwig diet, this question likely could only be settled by Dr Budwig herself.
