Flax Oil As A True Aid Against Arthritis, Heart Infarction, Cancer,
And Other Diseases
"…Why have fats become so very significant today? … Anatomically speaking, heart infarction observation studies reveal nothing abnormal in the picture except for solid fat, which encircles the normally lean heart muscle, confining and disturbing the heart's action…In rheumatic disease, the only factor which distinguishes the diseased muscles from the healthy ones is isolated fat … the only substance which characterised the cancerous cells, as opposed to healthy ones, was isolated fat; the formation of fat in the cell nucleus, cell body and cytoplasm. It was the single distinguishing feature of cancerous cells in contrast to healthy ones.
…The majority of preservatives can be labelled as respiratory poisons in that their effect is to block the combustion of fat-its continued interaction with oxygen. When, in such a situation as described, we supply respiratory activating fats and prevent the ingestion of preservatives, which are respiratory poisons, then great numbers of patients who have been given up as hopeless cases by many clinics, will recover their health.
…In the formation of mucous secretions, it is the particular interplay of the unsaturated, surface-active fats, those fats which penetrate to the surface, and of protein, which is paramount. There is no gland, neither the liver, the pancreas nor the glands in the upper body cavities, the tonsils, salivary glands and others, nor the lower body glands, which can produce mucous, when a lack of unsaturated fats is present. The drying out of mucous membranes is nowadays widespread and often a course of complaint. This problem is easily remedied by reintroducing the body to natural, highly unsaturated fats, and this is significant. The fats which are alien to the body block the metabolism of other fat in the delicate glands, capillaries and filter stations. Such solidified, heat-treated oils must be avoided. Only then will the vital functions return to normal-the glandular secretions within a very few days, sometimes 24 hours.
…It is not correct to regard the problem of tumours simply as a problem of too much growth and thereby to instigate all manner and means of growth inhibiting treatments, such as radiotherapy, hormones and cortisone.* I am well aware, that this is a daring statement. I knew this when I said the same thing some years ago on radio in 1956. But these things must be said loud and clear so that those who are suffering can finally get effective help. In substantiation of what I've said, and to possibly facilitate the making of a difficult decision concerning, all this, I may add: When the Zentralausschuss für Krebsforschung (Central Committee for Cancer Research) in Germany, represented by three professors, tried to take legal action against me, for just this statement I have made before you, the presiding judge said: "Doctor Budwig's documents and papers are conclusive. There would be a scandal in the scientific world, because the public would certainly support Doctor Budwig." He advised the professors to withdraw their accusations but they were obstinate and did not comply. Then even the University's Chancellor, himself a jurist, became involved. The entire case was declared null and void in order to avoid a public outcry.
If that which I maintain to be true were too far-fetched, it would have turned out very differently. It is the only conclusion which can be drawn from the remarks I have made and I flatly declare that the usual hospital treatment today, in a case of tumorous growth, most certainly leads to worsening of the disease, or a speedier death, and in healthy people, quickly causes cancer. It is for these reasons that, when counseling on nutrition, which I often do with patients, I cannot allow other methods such as growth inhibitors, to be used. The oil and protein intake which I advise consists of simple food, mainly the most active fat I know-flax seed oil-in easily digestible form accompanied by cottage cheese and, as a consolation for the gourmets along you, in appetizing, tasty meals. It has been tried for many years by the Swiss who find it palatable when properly prepared. There is a cookbook available for those new to it. This simple food revises the stagnated growth processes thereby naturally causing the tumour or turnouts present to dissolve and the whole range of symptoms which indicate "a dead battery" are cured. In a short time the patient feels well again. It is preferable, however, not to wait until three or four doctors have pronounced a tumour as incurable—but rather your principal task is to recover your health completely by optimal nutrition.
* Note by Healing Cancer Naturally: This sentence can be interpreted in several ways, one of them being that "tumours are a problem of too much growth but not only". This is the exact opposite of what Dr. Budwig says in the German original, namely that cancer basically is never a problem of too much growth but rather a symptom of lack (of omega3s) on the one hand and of an overload of bad fats on the other, with their combined effect leading to incomplete cell division and subseqent "piling up" of incompletely divided cells. Correctly translated this sentence should read: "It is incorrect to interpret the problem of tumours as a problem of too much growth, and to subsequently use growth-inhibiting treatments, such as radiotherapy, hormones and cortisone."
SOLAR ENERGY AGAINST CANCER
Biological Prevention and Healing of Cancer | The Bio-chemical Reactions of Unsaturated Fats | Electron Biology and Resonance Absorption of Solar Electrons
A lecture held on 17 June 1966, during the Second Bio-technical Week in Neviges.
…While my latest book: Kosmische Kräfte gegen Krebs (Cosmic Forces against Cancer) was being printed, there had already appeared small hints in various journals, of how important solar electrons are. The book, Sonnenenergie und der Mensch als Antenne (Solar Energy and Man as Antenna), which has been announced, offers, as can be judged by the title, a theme for much discussion and pleasant anticipation. It appears that people do react very positively to the sun, despite the fact that many doctors today advise patients to avoid it.
Is the sun suddenly no longer of benefit to us? I do not believe that man's interventions in cosmic relationships, biological processes and our biological-dynamic balance, have gone so far as to negate the positive influence of the sun. That has to lie in the receiving antenna. It is quite possible that the human antenna for sunbeams is no longer functioning. Let us contemplate these relationships for a while, today.
…how far man has followed various commercial interests and carelessly interfered with his biological-dynamic balance-thereby cutting off his own life-nerve…we are severing our own life-nerve by using pesticides.
…With special reference to the disease of cancer, I would like you to consider from the outset, that every interference or intervention which disturbs man's biological-dynamic balance, his place in the cosmic scheme of things, in the dipolar field current of electro-magnetic powers which surrounds the world and its creatures and which govern the entire cosmos; that every interference with these far reaching relationships, promotes the disease of cancer: The small section which I wish to address today, "What can we do to prevent and cure cancer?" is really only a partial extract from the enormous whole; as cancer itself is only the most advanced developmental stage of this interference in healthy life.
So, when I say that I wish to speak of the healthy vital functions in man, within the cosmic scheme of matter, radiant energy and electro-magnetic fields, it then means the same as when I speak of the prevention or curing of cancer. …
At the end of my little book … Kosmische Kräfte gegen Krebs (Cosmic Powers against Cancer), in which I deal with sunbeams especially kindly, I wrote: "In the future, cancer research … will become a very simple matter, clearly and easily understood by everyone." … Max Planck, quantum physics great founder, said: "When someone thinks he has discovered something new but he cannot as a scientist so express it that everybody understands, then he hasn't discovered anything new at all." This is why I am so firmly convinced that those who really have something to say which concerns all of us, can so express it that everybody understands.
What is all this connected with? Professor Wellenstein, the Principal of Freiburg's Forestry Zoological Institute has said of himself, as published, that he is one of those people, perhaps even the main one in Germany, who has done more damage than any other, but at last, his Saul has seen the light and become Paul. He is horrified at how, when he says- he can no longer keep silent about the number of vintners who spray with calcium arsenic and are suffering from cancer, or about how many forestry workers who use DDT or Trinitrophenolin as insecticides are likewise suffering from cancer, the responsible authorities keep repeating that it is not his concern. It is the task of the Forestry Authorities. Professor Wellenstein says he can no longer close his eyes while the forestry and farm workers in this country are given such deadly poisons-insecticides-to handle, when alone in Stuttgart (according to Eichhalz) there are 120 official deaths from this cause. In larger districts for example … where insecticide was used over an area of 25 hectares, all the nesting birds died and 30% of the larger birds moved to other areas or died too. Deer, game, foxes and the like, were all found dead. It was observed–note the connection-that these dead creatures had all stored in their body fat, a wide range of insecticides, whether trinitrophenolin, Cresolin, DDT, calcium compounds or other insecticides used against oak pests. They are also stored in our own body fat, and have been proved to interfere with the living body's ability to assimilate that fat.
A similarly harmful aspect is found in the fattening-up of stock. While Senior Consultant Expert for fats, I investigated the high temperature treatment of fish oils, for the purpose of making them keep longer, and killing their fishy taste. I came to the conclusion that these oils then do great harm to the entire internal glandular system, as well as to the liver and other organs and are therefore not suitable for human consumption.
This was my official verdict prepared, by the way, for the German Ministry of Foods in 1951. In 1955 I received the answer: Banning these heat-treated fish oils is "being considered" as tests in other institutes have now shown that these fish oils are very harmful to both human and animals, as they disrupt the functioning of the glands and poison the liver, which rapidly leads to death (Today, these fats are still commercially available!).
When, after 50,000 tonnes of the above mentioned fats had been bought by the margarine industry and, in this situation, selling these fats became difficult, a cattle-feed firm was quickly called into being for the production of so-called ‘high-energy' for fattening pigs. This feed cake contained large amounts of barley edible, heat-treated fish oils, together with bone meal. Later, 50% of the pigs fatted on the feed cake turned blue and died on the way to the slaughterhouse. Furthermore, I also know of farmers whose young cattle have been harmed or have even died through such 'high-energy feed cake'. Through my consultation work with cancer patients I have met many trades people such as butchers, poultry breeders and bakers and, because of the situations which brought them such distress, I have learnt even more of these facts. I know that many butchers who are real experts at their job, are themselves aware of the fact that the meat, in the condition it often reaches them nowadays, is no longer fit for human consumption. If we, then, by the indirect method of such un-biologically fattened livestock, ourselves ingest these harmful substances which act as inhibitors on the fats metabolism, it should come as no surprise that this behaviour, based on a greedy addiction to "getting rich quick" boomerangs on us and we, ourselves, destroy our life-nerve.
How is it that these fats in particular are supposed to be so very harmful and wreak such havoc? In official cancer research, a book published by the well-known Nobel prize winner, H.V. Eider of Stockholm, states that if we were to reduce the many and varied forms of cancer to a common denominator, we would then have to say that the living body lacks the ability to assimilate fat. We have to discover the factors which enable the living body to once more cope with and integrate fat into the vital functions. The 'lipotropic substances' became a very topical theme in medicine. At that time I was the Central Government's Senior Expert (in the year 1952) both for fats and pharmaceutical drugs. As I had, in 1950, already developed new and sensitive methods, the very first of their kind, for detecting fats-before that time it had been impossible to differentiate between saturated and unsaturated fats-I was spurred on to investigate which fats had undergone testing in ‘lipotropic substance' studies. 'Lipos' means fat. 'Lipotropic substances' are intended to enable the living body to mobilize and activate fat again, to make it more soluble. I determined that the nature of the fats themselves had been completely ignored. It was mostly fat bacon which had been given in the animal tests. My findings that: Fat is not simply fat, led to focusing on unsaturated fats. I succeeded in proving, on a small piece of paper, that those protein substances which had been used to reactivate the living body's ability to assimilate fat, possess a 'haptophar', an adhesive capacity for fats, a sulphurous connection. Electrically, this has a positive charge and belongs to heavy matter. With this haptophar, the protein substances also have a corresponding haptophar in the fats. It is called the' electron-rich, double-unsaturated connection of fatty acids, e.g. linoleic acids. I put a drop of linoleic acid-15 years ago it had become modern–a minute spot of 1/1000th of a milligram, onto a piece of paper, and then allowed the various ‘lipotropic substances' to rise in the paper. I compared the reactions of these substances, e.g. the linoleic acids in the seed oils, and the reactions in pork fat. The results showed that in the seed oils, there is always present, in varying amounts, the haptophor for the lipotropic substances. The lipotropic protein connections, e.g. Cystein, as they are found in Quark, cottage cheese or nuts are able to make water-soluble the biological highly unsaturated vegetable oils in seed oils. And that is what matters. When you mix together Quark or cottage cheese and linseed oil in your blender the fat becomes water-soluble. If you prepare the same mixture with fat from a pig which has been fattened on totally wrong feed, the fat no longer combines with the protein. It separates. You can see this as an illustration of chemistry, in vitro, of what, takes place in all the organism's vital functions, and in its capillary activity, or in the rising of a plant's sap, that fat and protein do combine. That fat does become water soluble-but only when protein is in combination with highly unsaturated fats. Those highly, unsaturated fats are, essentially, rich in electrons. This is clearly measurable, physically.
These electrons enable fats to be surface-active at capillary level. Capillary activity is, quite simply, enormously important. In the centre of the earth as in the centre of the atom, there is much heavy matter. In the sky and in the outer envelope of the atom there are active, orbiting electrons. When we eat, electron-rich foods tend to move towards the surface which is of extreme importance for all the vital functions for the secretion of mucous, for the capillary activity of both the blood, the lymph fluid, and also for excretion through the bladder and intestines.
I often take very sick cancer patients away from hospital where they are said to have only a few days left to live, or perhaps only a few hours. This is mostly accompanied by very good results. The very first thing which these patients and their families tell me is that, in the hospital, it was said that they could no longer urinate or produce bowel movements. They suffered from dry coughing without being able to bring up any mucous. Everything was blocked. It greatly encourages them when suddenly, in all these symptoms, the surface-active fats with their wealth of electrons, start reactivating the vital functions and the patient immediately begins to feel better. It is very interesting to ask how this sudden change is possible. It has to do with the reaction patterns, with the character of electrons. I will return to these electrons later. In the last two years I have come to be very fond of them. A friend of my work in Paris wrote to me how wonderful it is that you have discovered the original birthplace of the electrons in seed oils to be the sun. That's how these connections are made!
We must ingest these electrons in our food for the vital functions … When patients of mine-even very sick cancer patients-have, after consultation with me; followed my "Oil-Protein Food Plan" for as little as only one or two days, they, these people who have never read a single book of mine, and without knowing my theory, come and quite spontaneously report: "I suddenly feel so light in myself, no longer so heavy."
How is it that electron-rich nutrition makes one so light? Why do we need it so urgently? Electrons consist of light matter. They take away weight from heavy matter, which drags us down. They lighten the pull of the earth and make us suitable for the heights.
Electrons have a great affinity for oxygen-they love it. That is why, in us, they thrust for the surface. They attract oxygen and stimulate our breathing-our entire being.
Electrons also quickly lead to decay in many foods, particularly when the natural preserving agent of the seed or fruit is damaged. The destruction of the light, activating, electron oxidation system is the reason behind preserving processes which treat food to make it keep longer, and change the nature of fats so that they can be stored for years.
Such food acts as if it were stone instead of bread. It loses the feature of being properly nourishing. Testing on animals and humans has shown that when these preserved fats, poor in electrons, are ingested, animals and humans eat six times their normal amount of food. According to this, as I often tell housewives, they could save 5/6 of their housekeeping money, if they chose the right kind of fat. … Man's hunger for meat is only proof that he has lost his instinct for the right kind of nutrition. I do not forbid patients meat, unless they are on the edge of the grave. I do not eat meat. Someone wrote to me from Switzerland that they know I do not eat meat myself, but allow patients to do so, and he asks why? I answered: Kind-heartedness. But it is better, especially nowadays, to live without meat. It is good to observe that people who eat the right kind of nutrition–electron-rich foods–tend to avoid heavy food, preserved food, and interestingly, these people gradually begin, of their own accord, to stop wanting meat, until they finally say that meatless nutrition does them more good.
What does such food consist of? The "Oil-Protein Food Plan" I have developed contains electron-rich oils, seed oils and beneficial protein which, in combination with the oils can activate the body's vital functions. Additionally, this food plan contains large amounts of fresh vegetables and fruit. Anything can be eaten which has not, through man's chemical intervention, been blemished or 'deactivated', leaving only the food's heavy matter. Why is this simple question of nutrition in connection with fats so important? In 1911 a Swedish researcher had already published: "Fats are the substances which govern all aspects of life". ‘Protein' is unjustly called ‘protein'. Proteos =I come first. A cell's living and dying are revealed in how fat and protein associate within it. This is also known from narcosis research. All the poisons which harm the living organism narcotically or toxically, including the benzopyrin in cigarettes, are stored in the fat and divide the fat and protein association process. The following animal tests are very conclusive: When animals breathe in relatively large amounts of cigarette smoke i.e. benzopyrin; it is proved that cancer does occur. In parallel tests, animals were concurrently fed with flax seed or flax seed oil. These animals did not become ill. By that, I'm not telling you to take up smoking heavily. With this example, I want to indicate how important it is to recognize not only where harmful and poisonous substances affect us, but also how these effects can be overcome. The latter aspect seems to me more important than simply busying ourselves with the "toxic situation overall". At present we can neither hinder radioactive fallout, nor make the margarine industry, with a yearly turnover of 21 billion deutschmarks, change its fats production methods. … What we can do personally, for ourselves, our surroundings and environment, for our friends, is find a method which helps to overcome most of this harm and damage. Today, just because it can mostly compensate for the above mentioned harmful influences, electron-rich nutrition is more important than ever before. I have explained in detail the reasons for these links between the detoxification functioning of the body, and the water solubility of electron-rich fats in the booklet Kosmische Kräfte gegen Krebs (Cosmic Powers against Cancer). I already emphasized, 15 years ago (in 1951 & 1952), the limiting effect on breathing when there is a lack of electron-rich fats, in which case, all glandular functions are reduced, and the secretion of mucous in the body's upper and lower cavities, including that of sexual functioning, are choked. This is also of importance in stockbreeding. It is worthwhile considering whether it is really profitable for farmers to give harmful feed cake in an attempt to make quick money, but which leads to infertile stock. … couples too, can solve the problem of marital infertility by changing the foods they eat. A farming family in Buchau on Lake Federsee had been wanting a son for over ten years. Would you believe that ten months after they consulted me on food and nutrition, I received a photograph of their first son and heir!
These related aspects, standing as they do, at the very start of life, are affected by the cardinal question of the interplay between fat and protein. Here is one example of how important this inter-reaction is, this central function of the association of fat-biological unsaturated fat-and protein, in connection with the division of the cell and every other vital function: The male spermatozoa contain over a thousand times more sulphurated protein than any other cell. The female ova are, due to their lecithin content level, rich in highly unsaturated fats and therefore determine the female sex. Warburg has described how, at the instant of fertilization, respiration increases a thousandfold and how the synthesis within the ovum, like all structure formations of its kind, is in this sense, as we see now, dependent on the interplay between fat and protein.
As a result of my work's incorporating modern quantum physics, which I have done during the last few years, evolutionary, and enormously important and beautiful perspectives have been revealed. … The more developed plants or animals are-up to and including human beings-the richer the substance is in its level of electrons. No animal is so badly harmed as is man, when electrons are withheld.
… The more highly evolved a creature is, the more sensitive the animal, the organism, the living body and thus the human is, to the withholding of electrons or to the harmful effects of chemicals which disturb the exchange of electrons. The system of unsaturated fats in association with protein is in fact a dipolar system in its nature, where a continual exchange or movement of electrons is able to take place.
And now for something really beautiful! In this bipolar system between highly unsaturated electron-rich fats and protein, the presence of sunlight activates a depositing and storage of solar electrons. [The physicist] Dessauer writes: If it were possible to increase the concentration of solar electrons tenfold in this biological electron-rich molecule, then man would be able to live 10,000 years. It is, in any case, true that all so-called mutations which damage the genetic factor, which have a negative effect on man and which cause disease, indicate a withholding of electron energy, while the concentration of solar electrons-stored in the bipolar molecule between unsaturated electron–rich fats and protein can greatly increase the depository effect of strength and power as well as the subjective health condition. A wealth of electrons means an increase in happy well-being. This result of a positive sum of strength and power was also recognized by Aristotle.
I keep observing that the subjective condition of those patients I have treated with massive doses of flax seed oil-sometimes I give an enema of 500 ccs of an oil mixture right at the start of therapy—that their subjective awareness of well-being, increases immediately. The concentration of electrons means an increase in man's feeling of happiness. Everything is relative, this statement also, but it is still correct. We can include Einstein's theory of relativity here. These interconnections, these facts, can be readily proved.
Why is that? The living mass of mankind derives its being-as does all life in nature-from the sun! This has been forgotten until now in biology and medical science. The living body can only take in and store solar electrons through resonance absorption. To absorb the electrons into the living body, we must already have in the body's electron system either the same wavelength or a multiplicity of wavelengths. Thus, the human who eats refined foodstuffs or food which lacks electron not only cuts off his oxygen enough to suffocate himself, he also cuts himself off from the effects of the sun. When such people cover their skin with a layer of paraffin as sun protection oil, and then lie in the sun, the burn damage is very great, because the electrons, which cannot be stored, and the electron-rich biological molecule, are missing. It has been proved that all the poisons which affect the action of enzymes, including paraffin and the benzopyrin in cigarettes, have an irritative effect on the entire system of electron absorption, storage and further conduction.
This storage depot of solar electrons, of energy … is brought about by the action of sunbeams in the biological living body-and can be drawn upon and passed on according to the situation and demand. In clarification of these inter-relationships, modern quantum theory in physics is of particular interest and highly illuminating. … Through the establishing of quantum theory by Max Planck and further development and work done by Einstein, and last but not least, through the work of the Frenchman, Louis de Brogue, the following is incontestably recognized in physical science today:
Solar energy electrons are both wave and matter! De Brogue writes that light is the fastest, purest, lightest and most beautiful form of matter we know, as well as the fastest and purest form of energy we are aware of. As the fastest emissary from star to star, sunlight electrons are always, whatever their condition, both wave and matter. The electron is a form of matter always surrounded by magnetism: according to the measurement methods used, it can be measured as either matter or wave. This borderline situation between energy and matter overturns all classical physics, and is extraordinarily interesting as well as of vital importance in respect of physiological, medical and biological problems—and will, I am very confident, give our biological goals and our biological thinking great support and a strong impetus. We can store the sun's energy and the living body is then in a position to summon, depending on the situation, energy from this storage depot of electrons. When these depots are empty, the person then feels irritable, tired, and his limbs become heavy. But we are able to replenish these storage depots by taking in electron-rich seed oils. These are set to receive solar energy.
You cannot, by selective seed cultivation, force the level of unsaturated fats in oil seed to rise, without also raising its level of protein. The harmony between fat and protein, between beneficial fits and beneficial protein is of immense significance for all the vital functions and life processes in this dipolar, biologically important system which controls everything in the life processes themselves. There, in the harmony between beneficial fat and beneficial protein, there is a continual easily influenced and directable biological molecule prepared to store the sun's radiant energy, to absorb and radiate it, according to the individual's need for energy, strength or power. Without any doubt, every function of the brain-and this has been scientifically proved-needs the very easy activation effect of threefold unsaturated fats. A Swede has proved that no brain function can take place at all without threefold unsaturated fats. The same applies to nerve functions, and for regeneration within the muscle after strenuous muscle activity, in the so-called oxidative recovery phase during sleep. This process requires the highly unsaturated; particularly electron-rich fatty acids in flax seed oil. So, when I wish to help a very sick patient, I must first give the most optimal oil I have. Given the climate in which we live, my opinion is-Flax Seed Oil. All other oils can be given later. In every case they should be natural, untreated oils.
Why is the other kind of radiation which is given to cancer patients today, wrong? This, in the light of physics research, is of great interest. At an International Radiation Therapists' Congress-very up-to-date-which took place in Switzerland in 1956 and brought together scientists from all over the world, it was reported that the effects of electrons had been tested in a solution which contained dead, inert matter dissolved in water. The physicist Dessauer, Dr. med. h.c. and Dr. theol. h.c., has written that the absorption of all radiation, sunbeams and the other cosmic rays which can be measured in the living body as well as in inert areas, differ in a fundamental way. Cosmic rays which contain protons, heavy matter or neutralized electrons are neither absorbed nor conducted by the living organism. The organism has a kind of filtering procedure for separating suitable and unsuitable radiation. When the body is exposed to too much unsuitable radiation, burn damage results. These un-biological, unsuitable kinds of ray, whether from synthetically manufactured radioactive substances such as radium or cobalt, or in the form of unfavourable cosmic rays, only serve to destroy the living body. All attempts, undertaken by doctors, to localize the currently employed form of radiation treatment to the tumour are bound to fail due to the basic nature of the physical occurrence taking place, which is that the wavelengths of these rays find no answering resonance in the wavelengths of our body's own biological electrons, which we are able to store in quantity from the sun. These ‘black rays', according to Max Planck and the 'incompatible rays' according to Dessauer, are in no way to be used as therapy on any living organism. At the Cancer Research Congress in Moscow in 1962, this was also publicly emphasized by the President of the Scientific Committee. There were 150 German scientists present. We had a long discussion on this over Crimean champagne in the German embassy …. The defenders of the old, obsolete methods which use the wrong, injurious kind of rays are in fact aware of these new scientific findings and related comments made by the Head of the Scientific Committee at the major congress in Moscow: We have to see that radiation treatment and operations are regarded as obsolete in our era. We do not find these methods convincing and there is not one scientific argument which justifies the use of this kind of unbiological radiation. We have to turn to immuno-biological methods.. It has been scientifically proven (by Professor H. V. Euler of Stockholm), that every operative measure undertaken in cancer cases only make the end more unbearable, causes faster formation of metastasis and can no longer be at all advocated. [Spontaneous applause followed.] … Here we have a treatment; recognized as wrong, but which is still given dogged and obstinate credence. I can say this because numerous representatives of this school of thought have been to me seeking help with members of their families. They found that help but still continued to support such obsolete methods in the medical journals." [Great applause.]
I, too, have often been taken to court. The cases were decided in my favour. All these cases were brought by various General Medical Councils. … When juristic methods had no success, attacks were made through the newspapers. I had my chance to answer them. Through these public attacks, more patients than ever before came to me for consultation and treatment. I am now in the fortunate position of being able to say to you that among general practitioners, most of them, the sensible ones—-so many are so wide-awake these days–firmly declare for what I do. Only the institutions and their managers still defend the obsolete methods.
And what do I actually do? I give cancer patients simple, natural foods. That is all. I take sick people out of the hospital, when it is said there that they do not have more than an hour or two left to live, that the scientifically attested diagnosis is at hand and that the patient is completely moribund. In most cases I can help even these patients quickly and conclusively.
What can we learn from this? Firstly, when the simple restoration of our fundamental nutrition–oil, protein, fruit and vegetables-is so very important, it is up to us to see that they are on offer in unadulterated form. Secondly, when maltreatment by chemical means, preservation methods, antibiotics or refining processes make certain foods such a source of danger, we should take great care to avoid them.
A point of cardinal importance in the maintenance of healthy vital functions has been found in research into the metabolism of fats and its connection with the taking in of oxygen and the absorption, storing and activating of the sun's radiant energy.
From the cardinal viewpoint of the body's vital functions, one suddenly becomes aware of just how dangerous is so much of our interference in the biological-dynamic balance of Nature. It doesn't matter whether it has to do with methods of insecticide usage, or with the antibiotics given in the fattening of stock, or with methods of preservation which utilize respiratory poisons or with the destruction of our wealth of electrons. These methods all turn fats into [cellular] breathing inhibitors, when they should be breathing activators. The fats then become storage depots for these poisons, becoming in that action of storing, a disturbance factor which acts in opposition to the storage process of lifegiving solar electrons. This means man is brought low, degraded and hindered in his positive evolution.
If we want to survive, as a species of man and as an Occidental race, and to live in contented happiness, it is then time for us to reconsider the biological fundamentals of our being. A Chinese principle in research and philosophy is: "The secret of all wisdom is science in harmony with the ways of nature." … It is high time for us to finally start thinking, and acting, like responsible beings.”
