Followed Budwig protocols at various levels of compliance over the years …and very healthy today. Perfect scans and levels for 7 years now . It works!
However, don’t forget spirituality, sunshine, exercise and positive outlook ! They are all important factors in creating and sustaining health… Jan 11, 2012 Here is my story: I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in June after emergency surgery to remove a large pelvic mass. My levels were very high for CEA and based on the original pathology that I would need chemotherapy as the tumor had ruptured and I was Ovarian Cancer Stage 1B. I took a few weeks to recover from the surgery, and then had another blood test done in mid July -levels had gone up post the surgery.
I went in for a second opinion, where the pathology was reviewed. I was feeling very good and really didn’t want to go in for the chemotherapy. I was advised at that time by the second opinion that chemo may not be necessary. I had just found the Budwig diet and started it the week before the good news second opinion. Since I had such a large tumor that had ruptured, I didn’t want the cancer to have any chance of return so I totally converted to Budwig diet and my whole family and I have been on it since the last week of July.
The results have been phenomenal. After 3 weeks on Budwig protocol, my levels started coming down — from 1000 in July, I dropped to 635 in August. By September I was in the 70’s and by October I was below 2 and normal and below 35 respectively, and I had returned to work. I was told that my levels originally would take several months to drop and that during chemo they would actually increase for awhile before going down.
I met with my original oncologist in late December as a courtesy feedback appointment – everyone deserves the right to learn! When he looked at my labs, his jaw dropped. He wanted to continue the discussion with me about why chemo, but couldn’t as the numbers spoke for themselves. He stumbled for a moment, and then said “Congratulations!”
He had never seen numbers come down that rapidly before (mostly because everyone he saw was having chemo). He didn’t pursue my comment about my new food program — I’m sure he has heard everything on that score — he frankly was a bit too per-occupied with the stunning charts and his embarrassment over a mistaken treatment recommendation. As I consider myself well now, it was important for me to close the loop with the physicians who had helped in the beginning with the surgery and original diagnosis — I felt I needed to stay positive about them and help them help others in the future — versus calling their patients up who decided on a different direction and fostering fear, uncertainty and doubt.
I attribute my healing to God’s good grace – and am very thankful for the work of Budwig and others that provide us with the insight that we need to support our health and healing. In my view, I do believe Dr Bernie Segal’s proposition – there are no incurable diseases – only incurable people. It takes a holistic approach ( I did Budwig, spiritual exercises, physical exercises, and worked on all my relationships with my family and friends and colleagues).
When healing comes, I have realized that it not only heals the body — many other aspects of one’s life are healed as well. As for continuing the Budwig diet, I’m all in. We all love the approach, and I actually love to cook now. Have come up with sorts of new recipes for soups, FOCC cream, salads, etc. Only problem now is that diet has caused me to gain a few pounds, so working on getting the right balance between exercise and the program so that I don’t gain any more weight.

I’ve been using a zapper for almost 10 years and following Budwig for over nine years (ten year cancer survivor anniversary is next month:-) I’m still here, still in remission from stage 1V Ovarian cancer…it works.

In Sept 2005 my wife came to me and said she would rather die than continue with more chemo. She had undergone many operations for her granulose cell tumor(ovarian) and lots of chemo. She appeared very sick and was weak… people that came to visit us at the house were usually very frightened at what they saw. I knew nothing about cancer or its treatments but I knew about the Internet so I started to look. It didn’t take long for me to find the Budwig site and it just made too much sense to me. I’m a simple person and like things that make sense.
We started in Sept 05 and continued on up until christmas time of 2005. We followed the program and juiced even more than BP called for. My wife fought me all the way. It seemed like every other day she would want to quit. I went along for the ride and ate everything she did. She went to a x-mas party (2005) and all the ladies asked my wife what she was up to. She had gone from deaths door to looking better than when I married her in 1997. The transformation was amazing. One weird thing that happened to both of us was our teeth got really white… so white that people started to ask where we had them whitened.
My wife had made an appointment with the doctors back in Sept for the end of Dec. I asked her why she wanted to go and what she would gain. My wife enjoyed the results of BP but never fully got on board mentally. She said that curiosity had gotten the best of her and that whatever they said she would continue the BP. When she came home that day I thought something terrible had happened at the hospital. Her face was white and she wouldn’t talk to me.
Finally, the next day she said the doctors couldn’t find anything wrong with her and insisted that the chemo from the summer must have worked.
Her usual doctor couldn’t get thru to her so they brought in 2 other doctors. They insisted that she would die if they didn’t continue forward with the chemo… and that she looked so good now was the perfect time to continue(while she was strong). It took me 3 days to calm her down. Then to make matters worse she got into a 2 week argument with my sister and it was all down hill from there. Those two emotional events changed my wife’s attitude.
I warned her what Dr. Budwig said about going back to the drugs and the 2nd time around the BP may not be effective. She had her fears so I supported her in her decision to go back to the hospital. 2006 I saw things happen to my wife’s body that made my friends cry when they came to the hospital to visit her. She changed so dramatically that I wouldn’t have believed it if didn’t see it myself. We buried her on 2/25/07.
I’ve been on the BP since and can’t believe there are people who try and discredit it… that it doesn’t follow any “known” scientific protocol. Why not put it in your body for a few months and find out? I’ve decided to start telling everyone I know and don’t know about the BP. It’s about time that more people know about this healthy lifestyle. I’m not sure how and where this is all going but I have the time to do it. People need to stop suffering.

I received the results of my CT scans last Thursday. There is NO EVIDENCE of DISEASE!! Every single tumor is gone! I had seven – one was almost 7 cm big!!
My doctors called the results a miracle and said they had only hoped at best to see some shrinkage! While I do have a strong faith and absolutely believe God’s Hand was on me – and that this had nothing to do with chemo- I also have always believed God lead me to BP and that this protocol is SO much a part of my results! Needless to say, my family who was always condemning me for “taking all that oil” and “not eating enough healthy meat” are today wanting to make sure I don’t stop my FO/CC smoothies!! I am so amazed – I cannot stop crying.
