Scientist discovered a cure for Cancer 50 years ago, which has been kept a secret till now

In the last decade, a number of research studies and discoveries of new cancer remedies have made headline news. Scientists have been fortunate enough to obtain amazing results in cures for brain cancer, leukemia and various cancers. But what most people don’t know or may have forgotten is that, one of the pioneers of cancer research, who found the most amazing cure for cancer, curing most of her patients, was Dr. Johanna Budwig.


Nominated six times for the Nobel Prize for cancer research, this remarkable lady scientist had formulated a fascinating remedy for cancer known as the Budwig Protocol in as early as 1950. But what’s unusual about this fact is that her own remedies earned the ire of pharmaceutical companies and as a result had her discoveries suppressed vehemently which is why nothing much is known about this incredible woman.

1 Doctor Joanna Budwig Believed In Natural Therapies As Opposed To Pharmaceuticals

Doctor Johanna Budwig effectively cured her own cancer patients using natural non-toxic ingredients. Although, she desired that her research be used for the benefit of the public, American doctors disagreed. After all, the commercial medicine market is a huge ball game which no one wanted to upset.


The Pharmaceutical industry thrives on deriving various formulations for cancer. Medicine is a big profitable business. But as ironical as it sounds, the pharmaceutical business thrives on disease without which there would be a big loss. Thus, it can safely be said that cancer is good business. Dr. Budwig’s protocol was simple yet effective. She believed in introducing healthy fats into the body and removing those that diminished oxygen in the body. She also believed in plenty of sunlight, which is a rich source of the anti-cancer agent Vitamin D3.

2 The Three Main Factors Causing Cancer

The three main causes of cancer are toxins caused by side-effects of medication, radiation and acidosis. Malnutrition is also a major contributor to cancer. Acidosis turns a body’s composition acidic, reducing the ability of the blood to contain and transport oxygen, which is then replaced by Carbon dioxide. Moreover, the intake of sugar results in a fermentation process that feeds mutated cancer cells, directly causing them to multiply and survive. Such a process was also advocated by scientist Otto Warburg, who won a Nobel Prize in 1931.

3 What Is The Budwig Protocol?

Joanna Budwig based her own Budwig protocol mainly on the effective stimulation of oxygen against cancer. She also endeavored to ensure a perfect alkaline balance within the body which was detrimental to cancer cells. The Protocol consisted of two stages. The first natural stage relied on the use of Omega 3 fatty acids from flaxseed and protein sulfur from cottage cheese. It is beneficial fatty acids within the body that increases oxygen within the body. Fatty acids are vital for a number of metabolic factors without which a person’s health can deteriorate considerably. The combination of flaxseed and cottage cheese was formulated as a medicine which was taken orally.

The second stage relied on a good diet of fiber, vegetables and fruits. The diet also suggested a total prohibition of certain items and suggested the consumption of various items as seen on the next page of this article.

7 An Important Fact You Should Know About the Budwig Protocol

What should be mentioned regarding the Budwig protocol is that despite being an extensive research study conducted by Doctor Joanna Budwig, it should not be combined with ongoing treatments. Moreover, it shouldn’t also be construed as the only remedy in advanced stages of the disease where advanced medicine is necessary.
