“Perhaps the most striking finding … those taking flaxseed oil regularly had over 60% fewer relapses!”

Benefits of linseed/flax oil to MS patients

Reading Dr Jelinek’s book Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis he suggests reasons to prefer linseed (flax) oil.   Dr Budwig recommended against fish oils and of course based her whole diet and protocol on linseed oil.  It all comes full circle and shows yet again Johanna Budwig was way ahead of her time.



I see there is worldwide support for the Budwig protocol through various forums. This website shares information that makes it easier to follow the Budwig Diet in the UK and keep it as close as possible to Johanna Budwig’s original diet. Linseed oil and ground linseed has certainly helped me, to take more control of my own health and seeing my health improve by doing so. This is why I feel this protocol needs to be more widely known. This Budwig diet is too good not to share. I hope it helps you as much as it has helped me. I highly recommend Flax Farm for all of the products I use for my recipes.
