Linseed oil and cottage Cheese help to tackle some 50 common illnesses, budwig mix

Linseed oil, cottage cheese, budwig mix

At the BUDWIG CENTER, we have accumulated several testimonials from people all over the world with various types of cancer and many other common illnesses. These individuals are now living healthy, normal lives because of following the Dr. Budwig program of linseed oil and cottage cheese. This program, as well as other vital lifestyle changes,  has made all the difference in their fight against chronic illness.

The world famous linseed oil and Quark (Cottage cheese) mixture of Dr. Budwig has proven helpful with all types of Cancer, as well as; Arthritis, Asthma, Heart Infarction, Irregular Heart Beat, Infertility, Psoriasis, Eczema (other skin diseases), Immune Deficiency Syndromes (Multiple Sclerosis and other Auto Immune Diseases), Diabetes, Lungs (respiratory conditions), Stomach Ulcers, Liver, Prostate, Strokes, Brain Tumors, Arteriosclerosis and other chronic diseases.

Omega 3 Is Essential For Good Health

There was a study done in 1994 with 121 women who had advanced breast cancer that spread to the lymph nodes. The study revealed that they had very low levels of omega-3 fatty acids in the breast tissue. Another study from Boston University using the very same type of tissue profiles demonstrated that patients with coronary artery disease also had low levels of EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids found in Omega 3 oils).

Dr. Johanna Budwig discovered that adequate amounts of omega 3 oils and sulphurated protein, which is contained in the Linseed oil and Cottage cheese combination, was a tremendous anti-cancer prevention and treatment strategy.

There are many plants that are rich in Omega 3, but linen or flax oil is the richest source of these fatty acids (naturally occurring variations not considered, 100g of oil contain 72g of polyunsaturated fatty acids, 54g of which are omega-3 acids).

When linseed oil is combined with protein (or more precisely, sulphurated amino acids, which is found in abundance in quark/cottage cheese) there is a chemical reaction that takes place that allows the highly unsaturated fatty acids to become water-soluble, enabling them to more easily enter the cells and flood the body with life-giving oxygen.

Dr. Budwig recognized the need to oxygenate the body because harmful microbes cannot live in the presence of oxygen. Every day we are exposed to microbes and pathogens, such as parasites, viruses, fungus, as well as harmful toxins that cause illnesses. However, these microbes and pathogens cannot survive in an oxygen-rich environment.

For example, products such as commercial cooking oils and margarine actually shut down the natural electrical field of our cells. Dr. Budwig stated that “artificial oils and trans fats (or partially hydrogenated oils) such as oils used in our kitchen….are extracted from corn, sunflowers and other plants, by extreme heat, chemicals or other artificial processes, and not a natural process for cold extraction.”

As you know, our bodies produce over 500 million new cells every single day. Dr. Budwig pointed out that in producing new cells, there is a dipolarity between the electrically positive nucleus and the electrically negative cell membrane that contains high unsaturated fatty acids. Now when cell division takes place, the original cell, and the new daughter cell must contain enough electron-rich fatty acids in its surface area to divide off completely from the old cell. When this process is interrupted by highly refined cooking oils and unhealthy fats, the body begins to allow chronic and terminal diseases to take hold of our bodies.

How to prepare Dr.Budwig’s oil-protien muesli

with Quark/Cottage cheese/Ricotta and Flaxseed (Linseed) Oil

Linseed oil, cottage cheese, budwig mix
  • STEP 1

    Mix 2 tablespoons of low fat milk with 3 tablespoons linseed oil using an electric stick type blender until nice a smooth. (an electric blender is preferred as you can be surer the oil blends well with all the other ingredients)

  • STEP 2

    Next add 1 teaspoon of honey and mix all 3 ingredients well together.

  • STEP 3

    Now slowly add the low-fat quark or cottage cheese or Ricotta 2 tablespoons at a time and keep mixing until it is mixed well, putting in a total of 6 level tablespoons of Low Fat Quark/cottage cheese/Ricotta.

  • STEP 4

    In a separate bowl put 2 tablespoons of freshly ground flaxseeds that you have ground up with a coffee grinder and covered with 1 teaspoon of honey.

  • STEP 5

    Put some fruit or nuts over the seeds and honey.

  • STEP 6

    Then finally pour the creamy mixture of quark, honey and oil over the flaxseed and honey and fruit. That is the original way Dr. Budwig liked to prepare it for her patients.

(See Optional) for more things you can add to the Muesli mixture.

IMPORTANT! Please be advised that step 2 (adding the flaxseeds) is not applicable to patients with cancer of the colon, rectum and especially patients who have had a colostomy as the seeds could irritate the intestinal wall.


If you are not able to get fresh pressed flaxseed oil or you would like to benefit from the nutrition that the flax shell provides then you can make the muesli using flaxseeds instead of flaxseed oil.

  • Put 12 tablespoons of organic flaxseeds into a bowl and triple the amount pure water to cover the seeds and then soak overnight.
  • Using an upright stick type electric blender, grind and blend up half the amount of soaked seeds (you need to consume the muesli twice a day thus the other half of presoaked seeds will be used in the afternoon).
  • Add to 6 tablespoons of low fat (2% of less) cottage cheese or quark (organic if possible).
  • 3 tablespoons of low fat skim milk (avoid UHT milk) and blend with electric stick type blender for a minute.
  • Now add 2 teaspoons of raw honey and add fruit or nuts of your choice. (see Optional)


Add the juice of ½ a lemon makes it very palatable and a great fresh taste. Also, fruit, especially berries can be added. Be creative and for a change some days try adding things like parsley, garlic, dried fruits, ground hemp seeds, ground almonds, ground sunflower seeds, Brazil nuts, and pumpkin seeds (do not use peanuts), vanilla, cinnamon, raw cocoa or grated coconut. Some prefer a touch of cayenne peppe.


This muesli turns rancid after 20 minutes, so it must be ingested immediately. Do not grind and store seeds to be used later.  The flaxseed oil must be kept cold, so store it in the fridge. Try to purchase directly from the manufacturer, (e.g. Barlean´s, N. America, or Linovita, Europe), or from an herbalist/health food shop. The cottage cheese/quark can be frozen if necessary.

    I use black seed oil 1 tbl to 3 tbl quark. I keep both in the frig. Believe this is similar.

  2. Kathy Jenkins October 27, 2016 at 3:11 pm

    Dear Anne,

    To get the benefits of the Budwig mixture one must use flaxseed oil or chia oil. Other oils have their nutritional benefits but would not be used to replace the flaxseed oil in the mixture.

    How many times a day do I eat this combo?

  4. Kathy Jenkins November 22, 2016 at 11:41 am

    Dear Tamara,

    Thank you for contacting us with your question. You should take the mix once a day. Some patients with cancer take it up to twice a day. That would be the maximum amount.

    Kind regards,

    Kathy L.J.

    I cross somewhere information of much larger doses, how come ?

  6. Savana February 14, 2017 at 2:14 am

    Hi, I make a sort of “parfait” with a similar mixture, layering it with frozen blueberries and raw walnuts. It ends up tasting like cheesecake, the ingredients are as follows: cottage cheese, flaxseed oil, MCT oil, small pinch of vanilla bean powder, xylitol, and stevia. Is the MCT oil counteractive or beneficial? My initial thought was that it was beneficial but it can easily be taken out of my recipe. Thank for your time, Savana

  7. Kathy Jenkins February 14, 2017 at 4:07 pm

    Dear Savan,

    Thank you for contacting us with your question. MCT oil can contain fat from animals which can be a concern. Animals store toxins in their fat so dr. Budwig discouraged animal fat. We recommend extra virgin coconut oil as a healthy source of fat instead to make this recipe. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    Kind regards,

    Kathy L.J.

  8. Patrice February 22, 2017 at 1:19 pm

    Hello, I have a question about the Flaxseed oil. Usually do find it in stores but they are not refrigerated. in the stores. Is that all right? Does it need refrigerating before or once I buy it and open it?
    Thanks a lot

  9. Kathy Jenkins February 22, 2017 at 4:07 pm

    Dear Patrice,

    It would be ideal if the store kept them refrigerated and it would be worth it to ask them to do this for you if they have a fridge to store other items they are selling.
    If you worry about the oil not being fresh, you can make the mixture with twice the amount of seeds and soak them before blending them all together. The problem is that the texture will be quite different. Very thick. So you will need to add some oat milk, almond milk or even water to make it easier to take.

    Kind regards,

    Kathy L.J.

    My name is Ann is this good for parkingsons?

  11. Kathy Jenkins March 2, 2017 at 4:18 pm

    Dear Ann,

    Thank you for contacting us. We treat all types of illnesses in Budwig Center so we can certainly see about helping you with your Parkinson’s.
    I’m attaching a health report for you to complete and tell us more about your physical condition. This way we can personalize the treatment for your needs. Our philosophy is to treat the mind, body and soul addressing the cause of illness. Dr. Johanna Budwig’s research found that the causes for all illness is a combination of some or all of these factors: toxins not eliminated properly, microorganisms (virus, bacteria, fungus and parasites), lack of nutrients and oxygen in our cells and a weakened immune system due to emotional factors.

    Kind regards,

    Kathy L.J.

  12. Deepika March 11, 2017 at 7:38 pm

    hello, can i use a manual hand whisk to make the mixture or do i need an electric hand blender?

  13. Kathy Jenkins March 13, 2017 at 4:52 pm

    Dear Deepika,

    Thank you for contacting us with your question. Dr. Johanna Budwig recommended using the hand blender to ensure that the mixture is homogenous and to obtain the chemical reaction desired. If you were able to obtain whipped cream with a hand whisk in cream, that would be about how much effort it would take to obtain the chemical reaction. With the hand blender it takes almost a whole minute. I hope this answer has been helpful. Let me know if I can help further.

    Kind regards,

    Kathy L.J.

  14. Ami March 13, 2017 at 11:11 pm

    Hi, can I replace the cottage cheese with homeade kefir?

  15. Kathy Jenkins March 15, 2017 at 3:36 pm

    Dear Ami,

    Thank you for contacting us with your question. Dr. Johanna Budwig encouraged fermented foods like sauerkraut, sauerkraut juice and therefore Kefir and Jun Kombucha tea would be good to have before a meal, to help digestion. Having said that though, Kefir is not a replacement for the cottage cheese in order to obtain the desired results when mixing with flaxseed oil. We have this FAQ in case it is helpful:

    Kind regards,

    Kathy L.J.

    Is the dosage the sane for toddlers, children and teens? Wanting to put our whole family on the protocol for heath and wellness.

  17. Ochau August 1, 2017 at 8:32 am

    Hello Kathy.
    I have chronic hepatitis B and now am told I have primary liver cancer. A friend advise I take the protocol which I have been on for 3 weeks now. I now have jaundice. Could it be that the protocol is not for liver cancer?

  18. Kathy Jenkins August 2, 2017 at 11:50 am

    Dear Ochau,

    Thank you for sending us your question. The Budwig diet and protocol is beneficial for ALL types of cancer but applying it personally there is a possibility that one isn’t doing it correctly.

    At the clinic we have also seen that we need to personalize recommendations. We have found patients that don’t react favorably to taking the Budwig mixture with seeds.

    We have seen patients that until they detox and eliminate parasites in their digestive system, sometimes they have intolerances to buckwheat, Dr. Johanna’s favorite grain, or oats, which should be consumed in the transition diet…

    So to know exactly what is happening in your case, we would need to do a proper evaluation and give you personalized advice for your case. We have sent you an email privately so that you can get in touch with us to see how we can help you. Please have a look at your inbox for an email from: and also look in your spam folder just in case it went there.

    Kind regards

    Thank you for this question Charity,

    You can prepare a large portion and simply serve each person according to their appetite. Some days they will eat more and others they will eat less. Teenagers usually eat as much or more than adults so for children and toddlers calculate about ½ a portion. As long as you remember the ratio of 1:2 of the oil to the cottage cheese or quark when preparing it you will be fine.

    Kind regards,
    Kathy L.Jenkins

  20. Donna August 20, 2017 at 3:04 am

    Hello Kathy,
    Fighting stage IV colorectal cancer with mets to the liver, I noticed that the website said we should not use flax seed in the recipe for Flax oil and cottage cheese. Why shouldn’t we use Flax seed in the mixture. What kind of cottage cheese should we use (any with 2% fat)? Is it recommended to eat this while on Chemo? Lastly, I wanted to start with eating this 2x day, how many days should we do this protocol?

  21. Kathy Jenkins August 31, 2017 at 8:09 am

    Dear Donna,

    Thank you for sending us these questions. The flaxseeds can be too irritating to the colorectal area so simply add 1 extra tablespoon of the oil. The cottage cheese would not have added sugar but other than that there are no specifications. If you are not nauseous you can eat it while taking chemo. Once a day minimum and twice a day maximum. Even after you don’t have cancer anymore you should continue eating it 3 times a week or so for maintenance. Meanwhile try to eat it every day.

    Kind regards,
    Kathy Jenkins

  22. Christy September 19, 2017 at 6:19 pm

    Hello Kathy,

    I have a question about the type of cottage cheese used for this recipe. I read your saying that it can only have a “maximum 2% fat,” but am curious how the cottage cheese we buy in the store decides what is 1%, 2%, 4%, etc fat. How do they determine this? I only ask because I’d like to make my own drained (and possibly pressed) cottage cheese from grassfed and finished raw milk, but am unable to find information about how much of a fat % that would be considered, nor anything else much about the calories, carbs, etc found in such.

    Thank you in advance, for your help!

  23. Kathy Jenkins September 21, 2017 at 5:24 pm

    Thank you for contacting us with this question. The fat content of food is determined by the ingredients that can contain fat, which in this case would be the milk used. We haven’t become chemists nor do we elaborate our own quark or cottage cheese so we only help you with recipes that follow the Budwig diet, but not with elaborating homemade quark or cottage cheese. We do recommend trusting professionals when it comes to getting the fat content and sulfurated protein percentages correct as this is done in laboratories and other equipment to ensure it is analyzed and labeled correctly.

    Can you eat the cottage cheese mix at night instead of morning will it work the same.

  25. Kathy Jenkins January 3, 2018 at 1:51 pm

    Thank you for sending us this question Wilma,

    We would recommend you eat it in the morning or at some point before 5 pm. After this hour one’s digestion slows down and it is best to eat steamed veggies or creams soups, things that will be easy to digest.

    Kind regards,
    Kathy Jenkins

  26. Krista January 29, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    Can you make a batch of the oil with cottage cheese mix ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for quick use. Or should it be made fresh each day? Thank you!

  27. Peggy January 30, 2018 at 8:17 am

    What if after consuming this, there’s extreme pain in the stomach? I mixed 6 tablespoon of flaxseed oil and half a cup of cottage cheese. After the 3rd tablespoon serving.. My Father started having extreme pain in the stomach. Is it too strong?

  28. Kathy Jenkins January 30, 2018 at 6:54 pm

    Dear Krista,

    Please do not store, please eat it within 20 minutes of preparing it for ideal absorption.

    Kind regards,
    Kathy Jenkins

  29. Kathy Jenkins January 30, 2018 at 6:57 pm

    Dear Peggy,

    Thank you for getting in touch with us with this question. This symptom is certainly not a good sign. Was it mixed using a hand blender or only a whisk? did you also add honey and seeds? some don’t react well to the mixture unless they add the seeds and honey. The diet is about more than just taking this recipe too but if your father would be able to come to the clinic and get tested to get advice regarding foods and options that work for him, that would be ideal.

    Kind regards,
    Kathy Jenkins

    I am dealing with 2 autoimmune disorders with 2 family members. They may have more but these are the known diagnosis. 1 with Hashimotos and the other Graves. Both are said to be diseases but I only see them labeled as such to attach a drug or supplement to it for profit. 3 months on natural protocols from Endocrinology and previous patients who became Natural Drs. Both are medicated 1 the medication ceased to he effective and led to a complete immune shut down (hashimotos) the other is progressively getting worse she now has no energy and the diet she is on is all cooked vegetables only no lectins or gluten most of the do not eat on the Budwig Diet. So considering this diet/protocol. Would it be appropriate to do since neither has energy and it’s Winter time less sunlight. Both have tumors on kidneys and thyroid nodules. I personally used and successfully coached someone 10 years ago using this diet and Protocol but that was for stage 3 lung Cancer. Should we consult with you or just let our advisors know of the decision to pause or stop their treatment and go right into Dr Budwig’s system?

  31. Kathy Jenkins February 5, 2018 at 5:56 pm

    Dear Patrick,

    Thank you for contacting the Budwig Center where we offer personal one on one service in a caring environment using integrative therapies. We have found in our clinic that using the Budwig Protocol has been very successful with many types of cancer as well as other chronic health conditions. Starting on the diet is the first step and then, if they could receive personalized help at the clinic during a wellness program as a minimum, that would help them know how to continue taking care of themselves upon returning home. We will email you directly to provide more information so please keep an eye on your inbox as well as spam folder.

    Kind regards,
    Kathy Jenkins
