Budwig and fatty acids?

And this...

This rise in depression parallels the Western diet’s simultaneous decrease of omega-3 and increase of omega-6 fats. Notably, studies show that depressed patients have lower levels of omega-3s in their bodies. Some experts believe that the skew of too much omega-6 fat with too little omega-3s accounts for the decadeby-decade increase in major depressive disorders.

Interesting, if Stress is going to be a major contributing factor for cancer (depression) in future it seems that Omega's in the raw diet are going to be essential for cancer prevention.
Flax oil isn't used in the Budwig diet to alleviate depression! Stress and depression are definitely killers, but I already mentioned the crucial part to Budwidg's diet and that it is an extension of Warburg's epic work dealing with respiratory pathways (oxgyen) - essentially, this is all going into the electrical nature of cells and like the article I posted - Cancer is a REDOX disease whether you like it or not by any cause - fungus, stress, toxins, etc... That is the bottom line of what happens to cells by every cause.

Here is your answer as I already mentioned:

In 1952, in a paper entitled "On Fat Biology V. Paper Chromatography of Blood Lipoids, the Tumour Problem and Fat Research," Dr. Budwig wrote, "It is basically proven that highly unsaturated fatty acids are the heretofore undiscovered decisive factor in respiratory enzyme function, i.e. constitute the second part of the “equation” that nobelist Otto Warburg had been unable to find."

Dr. Otto Warburg, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1931 for his research on cellular respiration, explained: “The growth of cancer cells is initiated by a relative lack of oxygen. Cancer cannot live in an oxygen-rich environment.” Warburg could not find a way to restore oxygen to the cells.

In 1952, Dr. Budwig developed her Oil-Protein-Diet which was able to revitalize the cells through oxygenation as a result of highly unsaturated flaxseed oil combined with quark or cottage cheese along with a healthy vegetarian diet. Also included in her plan is sun therapy and reduction of damaging stress. This plan proved to be very successful in treating cancer as well as various other illnesses. Dr. Budwig worked with many terminal cancer patients. Her rate of success was over 90%.


So Ash, what does the sun therapy do? You should know this if you're going to promote the Budwig protocol. Much of the electrochemistry involved was UNKNOWN to Budwig but I'll spell it out. No matter which way you turn, you're going to find out that at the foundational level, what works will work because of corrections to electrical imbalances at the cellular level and they are all resting on the foundational cellular water and its electrical balance and that water is of course made of a combination of multiple redox signaling molecules, which mathematically equal salt water if you add them together.

The wavelengths of red and infrared light/heat are in the same range as the size of mitochondria in the cells - 660~924 or so nm (nanometers). So the mitochondria are like tuned antennas to red and infrared light. As the mitochondria are stimulated by red and infrared (as virtually every cell is photosensitive), they go into super effective mode.

They produce more ATP, which is the main energy molecule and simultaneously, the mitochondria produce an increase in redox signaling molecules - a mixture of negatively charged "reduced species" molecules that activate antioxidants (but are not antioxidants themselves) and a mixture of positively charged "reactive oxygen species" that attack pathogens and give other oxygenating benefits.

These redox signaling molecules are what the body uses to FIND damaged cells and then these molecules help determine if they can be REPAIRED and if not, these molecules signaling the apoptosis gene to kill them off and get reabsorbed so that a healthy cell next to it can divide and REPLACE it. FIND-REPAIR-REPLACE.

That encompasses EVERY cellular repair mechanism in the body and they are 100% dependent on redox signaling molecules. Someone can have the best raw food diet in the world but if they don't have enough supply of redox signaling molecules because of having too many damaged mitochondria from oxidative stress over the years, they will only be able to benefit from the food proportionate to the amount of healthy mitochondria they have that can make enough ATP and redox signaling molecules.

The fatty acids are needed to help with cellular oxygenation and combined with the sun, there is a synergy that creates an increased supply of reduced species AND reactive OXYGEN species that work in a balance to destroy bad cells and promote good ones.

Promoting the Budwig protocol as working because of reducing stress has nothing to do with the actual point, which is really about OXYGEN pathways - as I said, an extension of Warburg's work. Reducing stress is a part of almost EVERY therapy to turn one's health around.
