A website for those interested in experimenting with the Budwig Protocol.
What is the Budwig Protocol?
This protocol arose from the researches of Dr. Johanna Budwig, starting in the 1950's, into oils and fats that resulted in the discovery of Omega 3. At the heart of this protocol is a blend of Omega 3 rich flax seed oil and quark, a kind of soft cheese. The mixing of these unlikely foods results in the conversion of the oils in the flax oil from hydrophobic to water soluble. When ingested, this has been related to many beneficial effects. Originally introduced by Joanna Budwig as an anti-cancer treatment it has since been associated with waist-line reduction, healthier skin, increased energy levels and decreases in blood sugar (diabetes 2).
But more importantly... this mixture is really nice! A bit like nutty yogurt and something you will enjoy and want to do. It also provides quite a 'buzz', especially when freshly mixed.
What is The Budwig Club?
The Budwig Club is a simple pre-research resource for those who are interested in experimenting with this Protocol. It is mainly for people in the UK so that they can find out where to get the ingredients to try this out. If this protocol has been of benefit to you, then do drop me an e-mail and let me know your story. There is very little information on this so it would be good to assemble anecdotal evidence to form the basis of future research.
