Bladder cancer healing 1

Date: Thu Jul 17, 2003 6:14 pm

All I can say is that in September 2002 there was evidence of cancer in my bladder. I began the Dr Budwig treatment and followed it precisely. In April I had biopsy of my bladder. The pathology report shows no cancer. In June the urologist agreed with me that the flaxseed oil with cottage cheese was helpful for me. My next appointment is in December. My PSA is very low, 1.02. There is no evidence of CA in the bladder.

The only treatment I did was Dr Budwig's diet.

I will not add to that treatment or change it in any kind of way. I make a mixture in the morning, put it on my oatmeal, save some to use as my salad dressing for lunch. I am strong and feel wonderful.

Bladder cancer cure 2

(In the first year or so after I became aware of the flaxoil/cottage cheese I was very "gung ho". I thought it was the magic bullet. Now I am aware of the fact that it is a little more complicated than that. Cliff Beckwith)

A man in our Church had bladder cancer. The doctor said it had crystallized and had no flexibility. He had to be where he could go to the toilet about every 15 minutes. He began to use the flaxoil/cottage cheese but only at a tablespoon or two a day. Some time went by and he seemed to be somewhat better but was getting tired of the flaxseed oil/cottage cheese.

He had a check up coming up and told a friend that if there wasn't a marked improvement he was going to quit the flaxoil/cottage cheese. When the doctor examined him he said, "I can't understand it, but the bladder no longer seems to be cancerous. It is soft and pliable and everything seems to be back to normal.

He later told a friend that he hadn't felt this good in years.

Bladder cancer cure 3

I just spoke with my dear friend Mary Jo Baird and she asked me to relay a message to you. A year and half ago doctors found cancer cells in her urine. She started on your flax oil regime immediately. 6 months later, the number of cancer cells was greatly decreased. The last test, even though she had numerous other health issues, showed zero cancer cells. She attributes it to the flax oil. She had been taking 2 T. per day religiously. She now is maintaining with 1 T per day.

I knew that you would want to hear one more example that flax does work.... now why can't the medical profession admit it?!?!

Bladder cancer healing 4

My name is George XXX, age 71, and I live in Massachusetts, USA ...

In Jan. of 2004, I came down with Bladder Cancer. With frequent blood in the urine, I knew something was definitely not right with my body.

I was examined in late Jan. and the Urologist found a tumor at the base of the bladder near the urethra. Subsequently in late Feb., I had the tumor removed by cystoscopy. It was called a papillary transitional cell carcinoma grade 3/3 invasive into subepithelial connective tissue.

At that time I heard about the AMAS blood test for detecting any evidence of all types of cancer in the body. So I decided to use this as a marker to keep track of any recurrence of cancer. Well to my surprise, every time I took the test (each month) the test results were all over the map ... some good reports ... some bad.

I realized then it was not a reliable test to monitor cancer.

Compare Alternative Diagnostic/Screening Methods For Cancer Detection and Follow-Up: AMAS (Anti-Malignin Antibody In Serum) Test.

Around late May (2004) I heard of Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez and his enzyme therapy and at this time I started to have more blood occasionally in my urine. Dr. Gonzalez' office is in NYC and I went to see him to start on his protocol.

With 187 different types of pills to take each day, it was quite confusing at times. The main protocol was the Pancreatic Pork Enzyme and of course a strict Vegetarian Organic diet and his detox program.

I did this until November of 2004. During this time while I was on this program, I was still bleeding and it was quite frequent toward the end of November with lots of blood clots. I called Dr. Gonzalez and told him I was terminating the program because it was not working for me.

I'm sure it would have worked for other people, but not for me. He apologized and was sorry, and we parted.

For a complete remission and healing testimonial involving pancreatic enzymes, see for instance Successful Alternative Cancer Treatment: Transitional Cell Carcinoma of the Bladder.

I decided that it was time for a Rectal MRI to see what was going on with my bladder. Well, the results were that I had a tumor the size of a plum near the urethra. Well, I was scared at this point. I didn't want chemotherapy or the bladder removed and the doctors I went to all said the same thing... Chemo, then bladder removal.

In desperation I had a book on cancer by Burton Goldberg and I sat down one day and Prayed with the book on my lap and I Prayed to God to guide my hand to the right page to help me regain my health and remove this cancer. Well, to my surprise, when I opened the book and looked at the page, the title I saw was FLAXSEED OIL.

I've heard of flaxseed oil before but never put much emphasis on it. From then on I searched the internet for all the information I could get on Flaxseed Oil. I've talked with Cliff Beckwith, the Barleans people and I've also been on your [yahoo] site since, I believe, Feb. 2005. Anyway, I started taking the flaxoil & cottage cheese around mid-December 2004. (4 TBS flaxseed oil to 1/2 cup cottage cheese). I continued to follow an organic vegetarian diet and juicing carrots, celery and apples.

I installed a reverse osmosis water system. I drank lots of green tea, ate white fish occasionally (once every 3 weeks) and lots of prayers from relatives, friends and church groups.

At this time I was doing guided imagery and lots of affirmations such as saying LIFE IN MY BLADDER, because I felt at that time when I opened the cancer reference book that the only way to beat this affliction was to do it in a Holistic way... BODY, MIND AND SPIRIT. And believing with all your heart and soul that this will work.

The one sad part of this testimonial was with the mounting pressure from relatives to do the conventional method, which I buckled under to do the chemo from mid-Jan. 2005 to early April 2005. It was terrible, but I continued with the flaxoil & cottage cheese, but now with 8 to 10 TBS of flaxseed oil to 1/2 cup of cottage cheese and I included a drink of organic apple juice with freshly ground flaxseeds mixed in.

Between those months (Jan-April) I had a Ct Scan that showed the tumor had shrunk by 2/3 size. I was overjoyed at this news knowing the flaxoil & cottage cheese was working its magic. I stopped taking the chemo around the 2nd week of April, much to the doctor's dismay.

In May I had an MRI and the results showed no tumor but indicated a non-enhancing plaque-like area in the previously described area of the bladder tumor. These changes could be due to benign prostatic hypertrophy, but residual tumor cannot be excluded. Another CT scan in June (the last CT scan I'll take) showed that part of the plaque had disappeared. My next MRI will take place mid-Dec. 2005.

Compare Whole-body CT scans can increase cancer risk.

I've had no incidence since late Feb. and I feel great. I feel confident that with constant prayers, guided imagery and the Budwig Protocol, I will do just great. God Bless Johanna Budwig... she is an inspiration to all of us here.

PS. Via e-mail I contacted Anton Kummer in Austria. I did purchase some of the cytochrome paper from him for detecting the presence of cancer. I made some tests for myself and it showed it to be pre-cancerous. Whatever that means.

Note by Healing Cancer Naturally: Anton Kummer’s address is Widerinstr. 5, 3100 St.Pölten, Tel. Austria 2742 / 79594, lebendige-kraftATaon.at, naturheilpraxis-kummer.at


8 to 10 TBS F/O to 1/2 cup of Horizon 1% organic cottage cheese
15 frozen raspberries (or fresh in season)
a little organic apple juice to thin the mixture and 1 teaspoon of honey and blend thoroughly.


400 mg. COQ10 1 per day
Wobenzyme N Enzyme 3 after each meal (9 per day)
IP6 6 in the evening
MGN-3 5 in the evening (no longer taking this)
Beta Glucan 5 in the evening (no longer taking this)

Note by Healing Cancer Naturally: Dr. Budwig does not endorse the use of supplements with the exception of nutritional yeast flakes. See Budwig FAQ. From reading her German books, however, it seems to me that she does endorse plant-derived digestive ennzymes which help break down proteins and fats.

Drink plenty of Good water and most of all BELIEVE, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF THAT ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

Bladder cancer & flaxoil enemas

Thanks for talking to me on the phone and sending 10 tapes (recordings of “flaxoil” cancer healing and success stories which Cliff Beckwith has been distributing at no cost) free to me. I gave one to a scientist and the following is an email from him to me. It was on Wednesday that I gave him the tape. The story is what happened from that moment until Saturday. Hope you can use it.
Love, Ron

“Dear Ron,
Not only did I enjoy the tape.... I only got to the first three minutes before I realized what I was hearing. I have a very close friend that is in a coma from complications of bladder cancer. I took the tape to his wife. She immediately called a friend in Tyler [TX] to go by the grainery and get some cold pressed flaxseed oil. The first three 'doses' had to be administered by enema, but today Bill was able to eat the oil and cottage cheese himself!!!

They had already called the 2 grown daughters to his bedside and the hospice personnel did not expect him to live through the night!! That was Wednesday evening and this evening he got up and sat in his recliner in the living room for an hour. HIS ways are far above our ways! What are the odds that I would just happen on to that information in just the nick of time?”

Note by Healing Cancer Naturally

The flaxoil/cottage cheese or quark mixture is indeed one of the backbones of Dr. Johanna Budwig’s natural healing protocol for cancer and other degenerative disease. But compare Is the Budwig Protocol “just flaxseed oil and cottage cheese”?

Those who want to put all the chances of success on their side are advised to read

"Budwig Diet — How To Get It Right — The Ultimate Guide":

Written by German Budwig scholars Michael Bierschenk and Ulla Schmid to "fill in all the gaps" and rectify the many misleading errors spread by self-appointed Budwig "experts", this important book was published in 2023 on Amazon as a Kindle and a paperback. It is also available as a downloadable PDF at a special introductory price.
