Should I avoid all fruit, juices, honey etc… because sugar feeds cancer?

Refined sugar is bad for you, without a doubt it feeds cancer and a host of illnesses. Dr. Budwig made that clear. She did however allow berries, fruit and some fruit juices because of their nutritional value. When taken in small quantities all natural sugars enter the body slowly and provide important energy and nutrition. Fruit is more nutritious when consumed blended, whole instead of juiced. Raw honey that has only been heated to 20ºC so that it can be poured into necessary containers is also very good for the immune system but once it has been boiled (pasteurized) it loses its valuable enzymes and nutrients, therefore acting like refined sugar in the body. Other acceptable sweet options are: Stevia, Xylitol from Birch trees and dried fruit.

Can yogurt or kefir be substituted for cottage cheese?

Can yogurt or kefir be substituted for cottage cheese?

Dr. Johanna Budwig was concerned about consuming too much animal products in general and Dairy products are not encourage in the Budwig Diet, especially if you have cancer or any chronic illness. For a healthy person consuming the occasional amount of dairy, goat or sheep dairy would be the best option.

As for the best ingredient to be used to mix with the flaxseed oil, the cottage cheese, quark or requesón are the only types of cheese that have the sulfurated protein (not found in yoghurt, kefir or other dairy products)

Remember to use a cottage cheese or quark with NO added sugar and no more than 2% fat. Once the mixture has become homogenous, some do add a little goat or sheep kefir or yoghurt to the mixture for texture and this would be OK.
