Cuvinte ce ne rasuna in minte…

Am facut un exercitiu simplu, cu rezultate interesante si revelatoare. Ma tot intreb ce anume ii preocupa pe oameni cu prioritate, care sunt acele lucruri simple, mici si esentiale? au oamenii o tendinta catre negativitate, sau interior ei sunt de fapt profund pozitivi?

asa ca l-am intrebat pe prietenul Google ce gandesc oamenii, tastand cuvinte cheie, cuvinte puternice despre concepte esentiale, si am numarat cate pagini contin acel cuvant. Rezultatele sunt destul de interesante:

HEALTH – 2,5 miliarde pagini

LIFE – 2 miliarde de pagini

LOVE – 1,8 miliarde de pagini

FOOD – 1,4 miliarde de pagini

DEATH – 570 milioane de pagini

GOD – 381 milioane de pagini

CANCER – 334 milioane de pagini

NUTRITION – 100 milioane de pagini

DIABETES – 76 milioane de pagini

Mic dejun pentru campioni – reteta mea Budwig

Este mic dejunul meu zilnic,  ajustat din reteta de crema Budwig promovata de medicul Kousmine. Ii multumesc Cristinei pentru ca mi-a vorbit de aceasta reteta ce mi-a schimbat viata. Alimentul acesta mi-a redat energia zilnica, mi-a redus pofta de dulce si de carbohidrati si m-a inspirat la crearea unor sosuri noi pe baza de cereale crude si uleiuri de calitate.

Pregatirea lui in fiecare dimineata dureaza 3-5 minute. Recomandat a fi consumat in maxim 20 de minute de la pregatire, altfel se oxideaza. Eu prefer sa las ingredientele sa se aseze, sa se obisnuiasca unele cu altele cca 5-10 minute, pentru a se „impaca” si a-si amesteca aromele…

Ingrediente pentru 1 persoana:

– 2-3 linguri de lapte de soia sau iaurt de soia

– 1 lingura ulei de in presat la rece

– zeama de la o jumatate de lamaie

– 2 lingurite de amestec de cereale integrale si seminte rasnite proaspat, pe loc (9 cereale: grau, orez, ovaz, secara, mei, hrisca, orz, amaranth, quinoa si 6 seminte: de floarea soarelui, de dovleac, susan, in)

– 2 migdale crude, 2 alune caju crud, 2 alune de padure si 2 jumatati de miez de nuca – le adaug tot in rasnita, langa cele 2 lingurite de amestec de cereale, si rasnesc cu totul

– jumatate de lingurita de seminte de canepa

– 3-4 prune uscate sau alte fructe uscate, taiate marunt (smochine, stafide). Eu prefer fructe uscate dulci pentru a nu indulci amestecul cu miere. Insa puteti adauga miere sau  siropuri de indulcire naturale (de agave, de exemplu) pentru un gust mai dulce.

Amestec toate cele de mai sus intr-un pahar, las cerealele sa se umfle si sa absoarba restul lichidelor, si apoi mananc incet, savurand fiecare inghititura 🙂

La acest mic dejun imi place sa adaug un ceai verde (puternic antioxidant) sau un ceai laxativ. Daca simt nevoia de fructe (se pot asocia acestui mic dejun), le consum cu 30 minute inainte de a consuma acest amestec.

Energia pe care o primiti este miraculoasa, imi ajunge pana la 13:00 – 14:00 de-a lungul zilei. Imediat dupa ce am inceput sa consum acest mic dejun am avut nevoie de cantitati mai mari (1 pahar plin), insa in timp, pe masura ce organismul meu si-a tras energia necesara, cantitatea a scazut astfel ca azi necesarul meu energetic este extras din doar o jumatate de pahar. Reteta de mai sus este pentru o jumatate de pahar.

Pofta buna si energie de calitate!

Johanna Budwig

Johanna Budwig (30 September 1908–19 May 2003) was a German biochemist and author. She developed the Budwig protocol, a supposed anti-cancer diet.

Budwig protocol

The Budwig protocol (or Budwig diet) is an anti-cancer diet developed by Budwig in 1952. The diet is rich in flaxseed oil, mixed with cottage cheese and milk, and meals high in fruits, vegetables, and fiber. The diet also avoided sugar, animal fats, salad oil, meats, butter, and especially margarine. She claimed that within 3 months, some patients on this diet had smaller tumors, some had no tumors left, and all felt better.

Evidence for the effectiveness of the Budwig diet is limited as most research has only been done on cell culture studies and experiments on rats and mice with inconsistent results. Such studies suggest that flaxseed may possibly be beneficial for cancers in mice. Some small studies have been done in humans which suggest flaxseed may be beneficial in reducing the risk of prostate cancer but more studies would be necessary to confirm any effects. There is no reliable evidence available for the effectiveness of the full Budwig protocol, though it is said that „thousands of cancer patients” in Europe went on the Budwig diet after it was publicized.

Claimed Nobel Prize nomination

Proponents of the Budwig protocol often claim that she was nominated for a Nobel Prize either six or seven times. However, the names of the nominees are never publicly announced, and neither are they told that they have been considered for the Prize. All nomination records for a prize are sealed for 50 years from the awarding of that prize.

Prosecution

After creating and utilizing the „Budwig Protocol” on a number of patients, Budwig was „prosecuted by the medical establishment for malpractice” in Germany for having used flax oil on patients, even though they had untreatable cancers. Though there were many court cases filed against her, there were never any charges brought to bear, as she was acquitted each time.

Catherine Kousmine

Catherine Kousmine (September 17, 1904 in Hvalynsky, Russia – August 24, 1992 in Lutry, Switzerland) was a Russian scientist who believed in nutritionally based medicine. Kousmine focused her research on the following diseases: Cancer, Multiple sclerosis, Rheumatoid arthritis, and other auto-immune diseases.

Life

Born in 1904 into a well-to-do family in Russia, Catherine Kousmine and her parents fled the country in 1918 during the Russian revolution. They settled in Switzerland, on the shores of Lake Geneva. The young Catherine went to the Ecole Supérieure of Lausanne where she graduated in sciences. She then went on to medical school. Upon graduation in 1928, she moved to Zurich, in professor Guido Fanconi‘s unit, to specialize in pediatrics, then worked in Vienna, Austria, where she got her degree in pediatrics.

Back in Switzerland, she had to resume her work as a general practitioner because her degree in pediatrics was not recognized by Swiss authorities. Dr. Catherine Kousmine spent most of her life in Switzerland. She set up a foundation in her name in Lutry, Switzerland, to promote her methods (Fondation Catherine Kousmine). This foundation has sister foundations in France, Germany and Italy. There is also a Kousmine Medical Center in Vevey, Switzerland.

Research

She decided to conduct research in cancer, mostly because of the death from cancer of two children in her care while she was working as a general practitioner. For seventeen years, working in a makeshift laboratory in her kitchen, she studied a special breed of mice that develop mammalian cancer at four months of age. She believed she discovered a correlation between a healthy diet and a remission of their cancer and became convinced that the cure for diseases sometimes labeled „incurable” involves the return to a healthy feeding habit – one that provides all the nutrients that the organism needs to function properly. Consequently, she focused her attention on healthy diet. In 1949, she claimed to have treated with success her first of many cancer patients, this one suffering from reticulo-sarcoma, thanks in part to the use of a healthy diet.

Her work on cold pressed (virgin) oils

Catherine Kousmine took a particular interest in vegetable oils because their quality had been greatly altered during World War II. Producers used new methods of oil extraction with heat (320°F – 392°F), the only goal of which was to produce half the quantity of oil again. The extraction with hexane, a hydrocarbon solvent with carcinogenic properties,[citation needed] allowed the production of almost twice the amount of oil.

The major problem with these methods, compared to the cold pressed method that produces what is commonly called virgin oil, is that the quality is poor: many of the cis molecules are transformed into the infamous trans molecules.[citation needed]

Dr. Kousmine became a strong opponent of processed food, white sugar, refined flour and refined oil, margarine and butter, believing each of them being harmful to the body cells and providing only „empty calories”, as she called them.

Trans-fatty acids have been the object of several studies worldwide. These studies showed that, even at small doses, the trans molecules are a health hazard. These studies lead some countries (Canada, USA, France for example) to make health recommendations. In 2003, Denmark reduced the proportion of trans-fatty acids to 2 grams per 100 grams of cooking oil. Trans-fatty acids were forbidden in New York in 2006. In the Netherlands, following an advertising campaign in the eighties, the amount of trans-fatty acids in margarine went from 50% down to 2% today.

Theory about cancer

She sought to understand what would cause a tumor to form and invade healthy cells, and not how to destroy a tumor. After many extensive studies on mice, she came to the conclusion that cancer is a need of the organism to ward off a toxic aggression (1). Briefly put, Kousmine believed a tumor, first benign, then malignant, is just a particular form of a defense mechanism of the body. A tumor is not a freak and isolated accident, but a coherent reaction to a state of alarm. Her method focuses on how she believes a cancer can be disengaged from its source and made useless.

Basic treatment

„The measures that I recommend start to be effective after about two months, and develop their full benefits only after two years,”² Dr. Kousmine said.

Dr. Kousmine believed that by consuming RAW virgin vegetable oil, such as cold pressed flaxseed and sunflower oil rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and in vitamin E, it is possible to reduce the permeability of the intestinal membrane and to prevent toxins from invading the blood and overloading the kidneys and the liver, thus preventing the formation of a tumor and reducing the severity of any degenerative disease, like multiple sclerosis or rheumatoid arthritis.

She proclaimed the importance of organic sunflower oil and of whole grains. Her prescriptions for her patients included: Dr Johanna Budwig‘s Budwig Cream, a mixture of freshly ground cereals, flax and sunflower seeds, fruit, cold pressed sunflower or flaxseed oil and cottage cheese) along with essentials vitamins (C, E, F, etc.), alkalizing minerals to restore immunologic balance in ill patients, all of which she believed to be suffering from acidic blood, chamomile enemas for colon cleansing followed by an instillation of cold pressed sunflower oil, and in some cases vaccines she believed could be effective against rheumatoid arthritis.

„If the patient is too ill, it is better to prepare him for surgery over a few weeks or months with the described measures. We then observe that the tumor stops growing, that it even shrinks in size, and that the general state of the patient improves, sometimes dramatically. Then, the result of delayed surgery or radiotherapy can be excellent.””³

There is no evidence that diet can prevent the development of a cancer which has been already diagnosed, and for the best results orthodox medical treatment needs to occur as quickly as possible.

Criticism

„It is important that the treatment that I recommend is a beneficial COMPLEMENT to current medical treatments.”(4)

Dr. Kousmine herself stated many times that eating Budwig Cream and taking vitamin pills weren’t the magic bullet to cure a disease like cancer. Contrary to what some critics have said, she always insisted that her method was a complement to, and not a substitute for mainstream treatments. Advocates of her method claim that it dramatically improves the results of chemotherapy and reduces its side-effects.

Some cancer specialists stated that their critically ill patients who followed her treatment and then went into complete remission, some of them for more than thirty years,[citation needed] had been simply „misdiagnosed”. Today, physicians who treat patients with her method are still not well viewed by the orthodox medical community. Dr. Kousmine repeatedly stated that the dramatic results (long – term remission, dramatic improvement of the quality of life for the most desperate patients) were not miraculous, but instead the result of a holistic approach to the disease, compared to the limited approach in orthodox medicine that focuses on the symptoms of the disease, providing the patients only with palliative treatments.

At the time of her death, criticism included that the benefits of raw, whole foods and cold pressed vegetable oils were not supported by scientific literature at all and that her theory has never been scientifically proven. Other critics say that her monitoring of patients with MS was not scientific. Her study rested on no control group nor did she ever test her diet on healthy people to determine any protective effect.

Awards

In 1985, the Société d’Encouragement au Progrès – whose headquarters are in Paris (France) – gave her the Médaille de Vermeil for her outstanding accomplishment with multiple sclerosis.

In 1989, she was made an honorary citizen of the City of Lutry, Switzerland.

Books

Her books contain anecdotal accounts of patients with severe pathologies, documented with complete clinical and anamnesis of the patients and their kin, the treatment provided and its results, successes as well as failures. These books also provide explanations about her beliefs about intestinal flora and processed food, with chapters about instinct and ancestral feeding habits and an hypothesis on the connection between cancer, toxins and stress.

Critics say that the explanations are too simplistic and complain that some rants against chemical products are caricatural and/or lack any solid data (for example aspartame and milk). Experts also complain that her books give the feeling that doctors don’t understand anything „except me”.

Publications

These books, that include a full description of her method, are available in French but have not yet been translated into English.

Seminar de Nutritie Constienta

Seminar de Nutritie Constienta in Bucuresti

29 septembrie 2010

Am uitat ca in secolele trecute cultivarea, prepararea si consumarea hranei erau acte sacre, am uitat ca in casele din vechime bucataria reprezenta centrul casei, „vatra”, cu rol in consolidarea relatiilor familiale. Am uitat ca starea de spirit a stapanei casei se transfera in hrana in timp ce ea gatea. Am uitat ca Hipocrate spunea „fie ca hrana sa-ti fie leac si leacul sa-ti fie hrana”.
Am uitat sa ne hranim constienti de importanta acestui act. Consumam hrana haotic, din motive total diferite decat acela de a ne ajuta trupurile si mintile sa ne poarte prin lume in mod armonios si sanatos.

Acest seminar nu este un curs teoretic despre nutritie, gastronomie sau slabire. Este un seminar nascut dintr-o experienta personala de intelegere a bolii si a rolului acesteia de a transmite un semnal de alarma. Este un seminar nascut din practica, din alegerea constienta, zi de zi, de a consuma hrana ce place corpului si nu hrana ce place poftelor. Este un seminar despre experienta personala a reimprietenirii corpului cu hrana, mintea si emotiile, ca urmare a unor alegeri nutritionale noi.

Acest seminar este dedicat tuturor celor ce cauta remedii la disfunctionalitatile corpurilor lor, celor ce se simt din ce in ce mai obositi fara cauze evidente, celor ce au devenit constienti de importanta hranei dar nu au informatii concrete despre punctul de plecare sau locurile concrete de unde isi pot procura hrana ideala. Dar este dedicat si celor ce simt intutiv ca e timpul sa adopte noi obiceiuri alimentare si nu stiu cum si de unde sa isi ia puterea de a schimba ceva, cat si celor asaltati de informatii adesea divergente pe aceasta tema, care cauta acum repere noi, simple, de bun simt, care sa rezoneze cu fiinta lor. Este dedicat tuturor celor ce simt ca simplul act de a manca e mai mult decat un automatism, fiind de fapt un act perfect constient de armonizare cu energiile intregului univers.
