It was Dr Budwig's research surrounding differentThe Lost Book Of Remedies types of fat that were the trigger for her research into the cure for cancer. Most importantly, Dr Budwig became aware of the potentially serious problems with the modern diet. Namely, that it was composed of a great quantity of over-processed foods that contained high levels of hydrogenated fats. According to Dr Budwig, this and the lack of essential fatty acids in the diet were likely to be one of the major causes of serious illnesses in the developing world.
As a result of this research and discoveries into the presence of fats in the modern diet, Dr Budwig set about researching how these could be affecting cancer patients and sufferers of other serious diseases. She was sure that not only could diet help people to lead more healthy lifestyles, but that it could actively help to treat those people who were suffering from diseases. Now all she had to do was prove her theory.
So began Dr Budwig's research into cancer patients in her attempt to discover what was making them ill and how they could be potentially cured. The majority of her research was made into the blood of the cancer patients. She analysed this because she was sure that it held the secret to her ideas surrounding a potential cure for cancer.
After years of research, she had made a number of important discoveries into the blood of cancer patients and how it differed from that of healthy people. The main findings she made were that the blood of cancer patients lacked the same levels of lipoproteins, phospatides, haemoglobin and Omega 3 as those found in the blood of healthy people.
In addition, she discovered that cancer patients had a strange greenish-yellow substance in their blood that she could not find in the blood of healthy people. She realised that getting rid of this substance was key to the recovery of cancer patients. And it was through the diet of the patients that she was adamant the process could take place, allowing her to reverse the process.
