Day 1: Budwig Protocolby david on 12/25/2011
I will be posting all of the things I am doing to effect my own destiny and my research as to why I am doing it (or why not).
One of the things I am doing is the Budwig Protocol. It rang valid to me for a few reasons. First, on their Yahoo group FlaxseedOil2 they have almost 100000 posts in 10 years (about 1000 posts a month). What appears to be a lot of positive testimonials from general health improvement to curing untreatable Stage 4 cancer. No profit motive – no one makes anything from this – the diet is widely known and ingredients easily obtained.
The recipe? 1/3 cup flaxseed oil and 2/3 cups cottage cheese blended thoroughly.
Before you ask, yes, it is absolutely nasty. I actually don’t think I could’ve invented a nastier tasting and less appealing food combination. There is nothing I like about it.
Luckily I figured out that I could gather a pills size of ingredients with my teeth and chase it down with tea and without tasting it which made it much easier to swallow (though I still gagged).
Here is the interesting thing. It might be psychosomatic but I felt better today, better than I have for a while. More energy, more alert… it seemed that I was breathing deeper.
I say this as someone who has started this as a skeptic – and still is, but as someone who doesn’t tend to notice subtle (and not so subtle) changes in how he is feeling but did… well that was notable in and of itself.
I’m planning on sticking with it!
