It has been 5 years 5 months on Budwig. Cancer was found Jan 2012.  They removed the right half of my colon and told me they got it all and cancer was gone.  All lymph nodes clear.  So, I went back to my regular diet..yuck. 

June 2014 they found 3 tumors in my liver. It traveled through my blood.  I had 1 chemo treatment and only 1.  Liver surgery got 1 of 3 tumors.  The other 2 have been stable all these years. 

I felt there had to be a better way.  Researched the net and found Budwig and another that I liked.
Decided on Budwig

Aug. 11, 2019 it was 5 years.  A few times I cheated and markers went up.  Went back to Budwig and markers dropped. 

I do add some milk keifer to the cc/fo but only after it is fully blended along with fruit, nuts, a bit of cinnamon and a smaller bit of cloves. less than a 1/8th tsp. (cloves.. anti-inflammatory,  cinnamon also anti-inflammatory.  Please check the internet for benefit of spices you like. There are many.   google .. “benefit of … spice you like.” ) 

Blessings and best of luck to all.

I am new to this group and was diagnosed with Colon cancer about a month ago.. I have been using Apricot pits since a few days after that and have only been on BP for a couple of weeks. I have lost 4 lbs. I am feeling great and find it hard to believe I am supposed to be sick. This has been a drastic change to my former diet. Is it normal to lose weight beginning the BP? I am going for surgery on Oct 3rd but whatever the outcome, I am determined that I will not do Chemo or Radiation.

…I am now 6+ years cancer free and remain on the BP.  I plan to remain on it for the rest of my life.  I’m not looking for particular results except to maintain good health and avoid any future cancer development.
However, I met a woman who achieved dramatic results with actually curing her advanced MS with the BP.  She was confined to a wheelchair as a result of the disease’s progression.  At that point, her prognosis was poor and the disease was advancing rapidly.  She made a decision to change everything and abruptly fired her numerous M.D.’s.  At the same time, she discontinued all of her medications and adopted the full BP.  I met her one year later while hiking on Mt. Shasta in California.  She and her husband were carrying full backpacks and were just embarking on a week long backpacking trip up to the mountain top in celebration of her full return to health.  She was middle aged and absolutely sparkled.  Not only was she fit and strong, there was not even the slightest evidence of a limp.

I was diagnosed with Stage IV colorectal cancer with liver metastasis in 2009.  I was given a 15% chance of surviving this long.  I had 1/2 of a course of chemo before my onc. and I agreed that more would likely kill me.  I also had a bowel resection and two separate liver resections.  At the point both my onc. and my liver surgeon told me I, “almost certainly have more liver tumors, they are just not large enough yet to detect”, I adopted the Budwig Protocol [BP].  I had no more allopathic treatment after that.  Now, six years after my last liver surgery, those tumors have never raised their ugly heads and I have been declared cured and released by my oncologist.  I remain committed to the BP, though I made some moderations to the exact protocol.  Nothing significant, just some quirks regarding my own body’s needs.

The colon cancer was discovered during a routine colonoscopy in Jan. 2012. It was stage 2a or b. They did a right hemicolectomy. (took the right half of my colon out). They told me they got it all and I could just go live my life. I did and I ate as I usually did.
In May 2014 it was back, 3 tumors in my liver. I had one chemo treatment and they stopped it to do surgery on my liver. They took part of the right side of my liver. Started part of Budwig when it came back. It has been 2 years Aug. 11 since the surgery. Started full Budwig then.

The cancer markers have gone up and down and up and down. I am so happy with the CT but know it is still lurking in my body and will stay on the diet.

BTW, the surgery only got 1 of the 3 tumors. Also I have had so many people praying for me. I am astounded by it and so grateful.

I have put the CT off for a year. Had it done Thurs. Here is what my oncologist wrote……………..“Great news! Your recent CT looked very stable, no sign of cancer. See you at next visit.”

Of course I know it isn’t gone but I am so happy.
I have been on Budwig for about 2 years. Pretty strict too. I have added Flor essence tea.
3 more years of being strict then maybe I will have 1 egg !   eehh maybe not.
Stage 4 colon Ca. Mets to liver.
I have had so many people praying for me and I am so grateful.

My 83 year old mother spent 5 weeks in hospital over the summer. She was very poorly and lost 28lbs…the medics found that she had a huge mass in her colon that had adhered to her pelvis, so they couldn’t remove it. A part of her small intestine had also stuck to the tumour. So they cut that bit of the intestine out, but had to leave the tumour. She also had mets to the liver. She was so weak, they said there was nothing they could do and sent her home to…you know what. She’s been on the Budwig since she came home and has put on a bit of weight. Six weeks ago she went back to the surgeon and he was so pleased…At that point they began monitoring her cancer markers….they tested her CA markers again…they’ve gone down. Her original markers were 7.8 and now they’re 6.2…. she has now seen the onc and they want to put her on Xeloda. She has decided it’s her only option….I can’t influence her. Only stand by.

I was diagnosed last July 2008 with neuroendorine carcinoma, the carcinoid tumor found in my colon with mets to my liver (about 75% – 80% of liver involvement).

I never even knew I was sick until I was diagnosed, just a small pain in my liver area. Was running up until 1 week before diagnosis.

Anyway, I was scared into chemo the very next week. 18 rounds of it (3X per week every 3 weeks). Following my first round of chemo, a friend recommended
Essiac tea which I started immediately. I also went to see a naturapath who put me on IP6 and Citrus Pectin, and also no sugar diet and organic vegetables. I never even knew about the Budwig plan until January of this year.

My Pet scan in December was negative but still showed some lesions on my liver and the Oncologist said it will come back very soon and she wanted me to continue with Chemo pills. I refused and went full Budwig plan with some supplements. I kept up with the IP6 and the Citus Pectin which has shown to stop metastisis. I also still take Fish oil, CQ10 and Beta Glucans.

I am very near 100% compliant with the budwig diet, just don’t take Sauerkraut juice.

I have never felt better, I juice every morning – carrot, celery & apple, sometimes beet juice. I drink wheat grass juice at night. I have a salad at noon with the second helping of FOCC. My last 2 Pet scans have been negative with the Oncologist being “shocked”. She said there was still some lesions on my liver but it could very well be scar tissue. I told her the last time that I wasn’t getting another Pet scan until at least 6 months – and maybe more. She was ok with that. I am back to running 3 miles a day and enjoying lots of sunshine (when it’s out 🙂 and meditating almost nightly.

Please don’t give up and listen to the Oncologists. Mine were soooo negative when I first was diagnosed. I refused to believe them – actually my family would not allow me to believe them! Small Cell Neuroendocrine Cancer, so they say, is a poor poor prognosis – so I was told! I don’t listen to “them”. I tell myself every morning that “I’m cancer free, I’m happy, I’m a child of God, etc…” Your body will listen to you.

Take care everyone and most importantly – don’t give up, never never never! Your body can and will heal itself!

Love you all!
