Eldi oils were a later addition to the protocol. They were Johanna Budwig’s creation of cold-pressed linseed oil and wheatgerm oil, and were designed to be used externally. Eldi oils are not designed to be used in isolation but rather in conjunction with the Budwig Diet.
The “Eldi” in Eldi Oils stands for Electron Differentiation; this refers to wavelengths of the light energy absorbed by the oil which is spectroscopically measured.
Eldi oils are used as enemas, for massage and for packs, used like compresses to help relieve pain in the afflicted part of the body.
Budwig Protocol: How to Use Eldi Oil as a massage or rub
Use twice a day, typically morning and evening:
- The Eldi Oil should be rubbed into the skin over the whole body with increased intensity on the shoulders, armpits, breast and groin to access the lymphatic vessels.
- Concentrate your efforts in the area(s)where there is a problem such as the breast, liver or stomach.
- Leave the oil on the skin for approximately 15-20 minutes.
- After that time have a warm shower to open the pores of the skin so the Eldi oil can be absorbed more deeply; do not use soap for washing.
- Rest for 15-20 minutes.
- Take another shower using mild soap to clean away any excess soap to prevent clothes or bedding becoming oily.
- Rest again for 15-20 minutes.
