  • Only honey, dates, figs, fruit juice [Verma: stevia leaf powder] are used as sweeteners.
  • Choose organic products to a reasonable extent.
  • The flaxoil must be organic and cold pressed.

The following contains various sections that explain the procedure for Budwig diet.

Starting phase

Budwig indicated several options depending on the degree of disease.

For the slightly stronger is consumed in addition to the below in the morning fresh carrot juice, and otherwise fresh juices as needed e.g. from carrots, celery with apple, beetroot with apple.

The severely ill have the most benefit from sticking to the simplest, oat soup and herbal tea.
At most three days with oat soup or porridge as needed with freshly ground flaxseeds possibly. sweetened with a little honey. Every day at least three meals with a total of up to 200 g of freshly ground flaxseed.
In addition, a hot drink at least three times a day. day, for example herbal tea or green tea, if any. sweetened with a little honey. Peppermint, rosehip and cheese are good herbs in a tea.
If food is difficult to ingest, freshly ground flaxseed mixed with honey in juice can be used in a transitional phase. See Linomel.

Before breakfast

1 glass of sauerkraut juice improves fat absorption through the intestinal wall and digestion as a whole, and which has many other excellent properties.
See sauerkraut .


Freshly ground flaxseed under the cream.

First one cup of herbal tea or occasionally green/black tea. You may sweet with little honey. Lemon juice can be added.

Omega3 cream for breakfast is described on the intro page.

Now the Omega3 cream is made with 15 g (2 tablespoons) freshly coarse ground flaxseed, and also with, e.g., seasonal berries, fruit pieces from, e.g. apple, banana, peach, abricot, pear, etc. As variation with e.g. fruit juice, rosehip juice, sea buckthorn juice, a few (grinded) nuts, fruit pulp from blending, raisins, etc.
If it is possible, the meal should be eaten immediately, as the freshly ground flax begins to become rancid in the air after 10-15 minutes. The flax seeds can be partially protected underneath – or mixed with Omega3 cream.


Late morning

One glass of fresh vegetable juice e.g. from carrots, variations with apple or celery, celery with apple, beetroot with apple, radish, nettle juice with lemon. Carrot with beetroot is good for the liver and a strong cancer combatant. Beetroot alone is too powerful. Balance is important.


Before lunch

14 g (1 tablespoon) of flaxseeds freshly grounded is stirred into pure fruit juice or perhaps in champagne or sparkling wine.

Can be seasoned with lemon juice, mustard powder [cautious], cress, oregano, thyme, dill, parsley etc. furthermore e.g mustard, sour pickles – according to your own taste. Himalayan salt can be used. By varying with different herbs and spices, new surprises that can make the dish particularly appealing are always possible.
