Budwig Muesli

 

There is sufficient evidence to prove that there are certain healing foods, herbs and treatments that can prevent or benefit people with cancer, and other chronic health conditions. One of those protocols  is the Budwig Protocol or the Budwig Diet. I like to call it Budwig Muesli.

 

The Budwig protocol success rate has been claimed to be between 80-93% for chronic health conditions according to the Budwig organization.

 

Dr. Budwig found that the health of your cells can quickly be reversed by consuming a mixture of cottage cheese (quark), flaxseeds, and flaxseed oil.

 

Cottage cheese is rich in sulfur protein and saturated fats and flaxseed oil is high in electron rich unsaturated fatty acids.  When cottage cheese and flax are combined together it makes the fats more soluble and can now easily be absorbed into the cell membrane healing your cells.

 

Dr. Budwig discovered that her muesli protocol wasn’t just beneficial for people with cancer, but also for those with heart problems, diabetes, eczema, psoriasis, respiratory function problems, arthritis, hormone imbalance, and neurological conditions.

 

The Budwig Muesli Recipe

 

· Blend 3 Tablespoons of organic flaxseed oil (FO) with

 

· 6 Tbs low-fat organic (less than 2%) Quark or Cottage Cheese (CC) with a hand-held immersion electric blender for up to a minute.

 

The mixture should be like rich whipped cream with no separated oil. Remember you must mix ONLY the FO and CC and nothing else at first. Always use organic food products when possible.

 

• Grind 2 Tbs of whole organic flaxseeds and add to the mixture.

 

Please note that freshly ground flax seeds must be used within 20 minutes after being ground or they will become rancid. Therefore do not grind up flaxseeds ahead of time and store.

 

• Next mix 1 teaspoon of honey (raw non-pasteurized is recommended)

 

If the mixture is too thick you can add a spoon or so of milk or yogurt to thin it out.

 

• (Optional) For variety you may add other ingredients such as vanilla, lemon juice, chopped almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, cashews (no peanuts), pine kernels.

 

• (Optional) Add ground up Apricot kernels (no more than 6 kernels per day). Or you may decide to eat these apricot kernels on their own.

Breast Health

Appearance of one or more lumps in the breasts may evoke lots of worries, but that does not mean that these will result in breast cancer. To put your mind at ease it is always advised to have your lump examined by your doctor.

 

Breast tenderness and lumpiness occur commonly among women, either cyclically or episodically, for periods of varying duration, before, during, or after the childbearing years. It is so common that almost all general physicians see women with this problem.

 

WHAT CAUSES THIS

About 70% of women aged between 30-50 years experience breast tenderness and lumpy breasts due to hormonal imbalances during the menstrual cycle.

Seed Pancakes - Gluten and Carbohydrates Free

Well, honestly, who doesn't like pancakes? The only thing about pancakes is that they are usually made with flour therefore they are high in carbohydrates that the body turns into sugar.

 

I really love this recipe (courtesy of chef Shelley at the pH Miracle) as it has no flour at all and the pancakes are high in protein, not carbohydrates. They are delicious and can be eaten any time, either for breakfast or as a snack. You can make a big batch of them and freeze them. They taste as fresh after you heat them up using the toaster.

Holistic Detox

Detox or “cleanse” are very broad terms in today’s healthcare community. Many types of detoxification programs claim to help with a variety of health goals: losing weight, reducing fatigue, improving mental clarity, and much more. What does it mean to “flush out toxins”?

 

Our bodies are designed to get rid of toxins, so what are generic detox programs actually doing?  A basic detox can be achieved with a change in lifestyle and diet. No one needs a special kit for that. However, for a real holistic detox, our bodies need more.

 

With the intensive use of chemicals and pesticides in the past century, we are all now living in an environment that is contaminated by millions of different types of chemicals and pesticides. Arsenic-based pesticides and heavy metals such as mercury or lead are especially poisonous. It is almost impossible to inhale air, drink water, and ingest food that is toxin free. After many years of exposure to these environmental toxins, our body can become toxified and generate many health issues with numerous different symptoms.


Introducing the Wei Detox program. Not only does this program address the basics of flushing out toxins throughout every organ system, but it also addresses the damage those toxins have inflicted upon the body. The Wei Detox supports TOTAL body detoxification, while also clearing pathogenic bacteria and repairs organ structure to improve the overall functionality.

 

The Wei DetoxTM program employs Chinese herbal formulas that:

  • help facilitate the organs including the digestive tract, lungs, heart, blood and lymphatic systems, the urinary tract and female or male reproductive system to release the accumulated toxins,
  • assist the liver in processing the toxins to non-toxic compounds, and
  • support the kidneys to filter the toxins out the body. The herbal ingredients also help
  • support the repair of any injury or damage to the organs caused by the toxins and improve its functionality.

With Wei detox program, your body will become free of toxins and your health will be elevated to the next level.

 

Here are the two options that are available:

 

 

14 Day Detox Program for the Digestive Tract, Liver, and Kidneys

The Wei DetoxTM 14-day Program consists of the digestive tract, liver, and kidney detox using three products including WeiDetox-GITM, WeiDetox-LiverTM, and WeiDetox-KidneyTM. The detox is a two-week program which begins with the digestive tract detox for the first 7 days, followed by the liver and kidney detox together for the following 7 days.

 

28 Day Detox Program for the Blood, Lungs, Heart, Lymphatic, and Female or Male Reproductive System

If the toxins have not accumulated to a level which affects other systems, the GI, liver, and kidney detox should yield satisfactory results when the toxins are released. However, if the toxin level is kept too high for an extended period, toxins may have accumulated in other systems. In this case, the 28 day Wei Detox program is needed. In the 28- day program, each organ will be detoxed with the liver and kidneys being detoxed twice.

 

The program begins with the GI detox for the 1st week followed by liver, kidney and lung detox on the 2nd week; and the blood, heart, and lymphatic system on the 3rd week. The 4th and final week of the detox involves the male or female reproductive system detox together with the 2nd detox of the liver and kidney. Since almost all of our organ's toxins released from the detox process will be dumped into our blood circulatory system, a second detox of the liver and kidneys is necessary during the 4th week to support the liver and kidneys in processing and secreting out these toxins.

 

If you need help to assess which of these two option is best for your individual case, schedule a free phone consultation.

Kidney disease ... a silent killer

According to the National Kidney Foundation, more than 26 million Americans either have kidney disease or are at risk of developing one. Untreated kidney disease leads to chronic renal failure (CRF), also known as chronic kidney failure.

 

The underlying cause of kidney disease may vary. Hypertension and diabetes are common contributors, but genetics, chronic infection, lupus and kidney stones are other causes of kidney disease.

 

Kidneys are not a mere organ of excretion or selective filtration and should always be evaluated in relation to the individual as a whole. Kidneys have a generalised function–the fluids coming to it and going from it, influence every organ, tissue and cell of our body. Kidney function influences the complete vital economy of our body.

 

 Modern, conventional medicine does not have a cure for kidney failure. Drugs, kidney transplants and kidney dialysis procedures are not definitive cures. Drugs simply delay complete failure while dialysis and transplantation only act as substitutes for the normal healthy function of the kidneys.

 

Kidney disease is a silent killer... Since early stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD) often do not present themselves with any symptoms, so a patient is often shocked to find out that he/she has CKD. Their blood test reveals a decline in their kidney function (low GFR) and higher level than normal of waster products (mainly creatinine, and urea nitrogen), which the kidneys are not able to remove from blood.  Often, their doctor watches their GFR to decline with time, and their creatinine and BUN levels going up in each routinely performed blood tests. But, since they don't have anything much to offer to those patients in the early stages of CKD, they wait until the kidneys function deteriorates to the level that indicates the end stage of the disease, and only then they can offer to them either the dialysis or kidney transplant procedures.

 

At this time many patients look for alternatives to those scary medical interventions. The good news is that there are other options that are available to patients, that are out of the scope of the mainstream medicine - options, which are safe, natural and able to stimulate the body's immune system to heal the kidneys. My only wish is that those patients knew about those options earlier, as it is of course easier to help the body to heal at the early stage of disease than it is at its end stage. Often the patient needs to be educated on the proper nutrition, on how stress and emotional health affects the health, how to handle the stressors, and they need to commit to necessary lifestyle changes appropriate to their own case.

 

It is good to know your blood test results. So, next time you visit a doctor please ask for a copy of your blood results and learn what those results mean. See how the results change with each visit. It is your life, your blood so knowing what's going on in your body should be of interest to you, too, not only to the doctor.  Here you find the basic explanation of some kidney blood test results that are important to your kidneys' health. 

 

It is advisable to work with a holistic health practitioner, like Ela Corcoran, who can support you in your journey to better health, who spends time explaining and answering questions related to the supplements and lifestyle changes that he/she might recommend to you, additionally to the treatment and care you receive from your primary physician or nephrologist. 

 

Ela will be happy to talk to your about your individual case and she will answer questions you might have prior to working with her. The first 15 min consultation is free.

Know your kidneys

If you have kidney disease your doctor will decide which tests you will have and how often they will be done. Speak to your doctor about your results. If your numbers are not in the normal range, ask what he can recommend to improve them. Additionally, you can also consider some natural supplements (like Wei Labs) and some lifestyle changes that would promote the health of your kidneys. Contact us to get more info on these options.

 

Here are some of the tests and measurements that people who develop chronic kidney disease may want to know about. 

 

Serum Creatinine: Creatinine is a waste product in your blood that comes from muscle activity. It is normally removed from your blood by your kidneys, but when kidney function slows down, the creatinine level rises. 

 

Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR): Your GFR tells how much kidney function you have. If your GFR falls below 30 you will need to see a kidney disease specialist (called a nephrologist), Your kidney doctor will speak to you about treatments for kidney failure like dialysis or kidney transplant. A GFR below 15 indicates that you need to start one of these treatments.

 

Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN): Urea nitrogen is a normal waste product in your blood that comes from the breakdown of protein from the foods you eat and from your body metabolism. It is normally removed from your blood by your kidneys, but when kidney function slows down, the BUN level rises. BUN can also rise if you eat more protein, and it can fall if you eat less protein.

 

Stages of Chronic Kidney Disease 

Different stage of CKD will reflect in different results of the above blood tests.

 

Stage 1-2 CKD have mild kidney damage with GFR above 60 and elevated creatinine and BUN levels. Patient may experience low energy, some swelling, bubbling of urine, low appetite and sleep issues. 

 

Stage 3 CKD have moderate kidney damage with GFR between 30-60 and blood creatinine and BUN levels further elevated. Patients may also develop high blood pressure not responding well to medications, anemia, and/or early bone disease.

 

Stage 4-5 CKD have advanced kidney damage and severe decrease in GFR at 15-30 and severe increase of BUN and creatinine levels.

 

It is advisable to work with a holistic health practitioner, like Ela Corcoran, who can support you in your journey to better health, who spends time explaining and answering questions related to the supplements and lifestyle changes that he/she might recommend to you, additionally to the treatment and care you receive from your primary physician or nephrologist.
