Here’s the latest from Gordon Watson, west-coast correspondent for The Bovine, and guardian angel of Home on the Range cowshare in Chilliwack, B.C.:
“…We’re on to something really big here — fresh, whole, unadulterated raw milk from grass-fed cows as an anti-dote to cancer. This lady [see photo] has the science to back up that statement.
When I attended Simon Fraser University in the late 60s, Buckminster Fuller spoke to us. He explained that various disciplines have a lag between the leading edge of research, and when that understanding is generally applied. Nowhere is that more evident than with the cancer racket. In fact, there are cures, yes cures, for cancer. But they are being deliberately hindered.
Sixty years ago, Dr. Joanna Budwig was on to the concept that processing food de-natures the fats so badly that the stuff then causes cancer.
With this understanding, real milk is not just a gourmet item, a flavour of the month for epicures and health food faddists. It is vital for securing our existence, and the future for our children.” — Gordon S. Watson www.freewebs.com/bovinity
And now here are some brief excerpts from an introduction to Dr. Budwig’s work:
“Extract from Dr. Johanna Budwig’s book “Cancer – The Problem and The Solution”, published in autumn 2005. Lothar Hirneise, eminent holistic researcher into orthodox and non-conventional cancer therapies and author of “Chemotherapy Heals Cancer and the World is Flat”….”
“Eminent Natural Hygiene proponent Dr. Herbert M. Shelton devotes a large section of one of his books (Orthotrophy, freely available from soilandhealth.org) to the enormous difference in health value existing between pasteurized milk (not health- and in fact disease-promoting) and unheated raw milk.
Additionally, the value of raw milk is very different according to soil quality and the way in which the animals are kept. This is described in some detail by dentist Dr. Heard in his book “Man Versus Toothache” [which you can also download from soilandhealth.org]. He describes how RAW milk from cows that have grazed on grass rich in minerals and trace elements, constitutes an excellent source of all elements needed for maintaining and restoring dental (and likely other) health, while pasteurized milk has lost all tooth-building and -protective (as well as possibly all other health-giving) values.
These are the factors I would look out for (not isolated substances such as casein).
Generally, if one wants to have milk of the best health-promoting quality, I would look for raw Demeter (bio-dynamic) or at least organic milk from grass-fed happy (well-treated) cows.
In general, it seems to always be the natural, unprocessed food obtained (directly or indirectly) from mineral- and trace-element-rich and balanced soil that is the most health-promoting….”
Here’s a testamonial to Dr. Budwig’s protocol, from another story on the same site:
“Terminal colon cancer: when all hope seemed lost
I am a 42 year old male and was diagnosed with colon cancer in May 2004. I went the surgery, chemo and radiation route and almost said goodbye to everybody. There was no hope left by September 2004, I was very fatigued, by then bleeding constantly – not to mention the excruciating pain I felt due to the cancer having spread to my bones. In fact, I was busy getting my affairs in order. My son was 9 and my daughter only 2.
Enter Dr. Johanna Budwig, Cheryl – and my determination to heal
Then a friend told me about Cheryl. I had realized by then that the allopathic doctors I had been dealing with knew nothing about the healing of cancer. Wasting no time indulging in self-pity, I phoned Cheryl and after talking with her realised that I would have to do this myself. Cheryl immediately got me started on the Budwig protocol.
At first I never thought I would be able to do this protocol… but by October I could feel life returning to my body. I was able to walk normally again, most of the pain was gone and in November I went back to work. My oncologist reckons that I am a miracle – imagine that!! It was in fact simple work and dedication – I had to learn how to eat properly etc., but Cheryl trained my wife and myself and made it all easy and simple. We had to learn how to make kefir, our own bread and sprout our own seeds [see Explanatory notes re kefir and sprouting], .…not to mention the juicing, correct foods and of course the flaxseed oil and cottage cheese mix and sunlight (which I took in the nude to the extent possible) on a daily basis. I used the Eldi oil rubs we purchase from Germany as well as body brushing and a mini trampoline (rebounder)[to activate the lymphatic circulation] every day.”
Interesting to see that rebounding is part of the treatment recommended here. I’ve been exploring that [rebounding] recently and it’s amazing how a little gentle bouncing for a couple of minutes every hour or so can affect one’s sense of well-being. You’d think “Nah, what could that do?” but it cleared up my father’s swollen lower leg in two days, helped him move his bowels, and noticeably reduced his need for sleep. He’s over 90. Simply amazing!
Of course this is not to diminish the importance of raw milk in this particular therapeutic regime. I know that at least one of Michael Schmidt’s cowshare members has credited raw milk with helping her recover from cancer. Her testimony is included in Norman Lofts’ documentary “Michael Schmidt: Organic Hero or Bioterrorist”. CBC Newsworld broadcasted it again this year around the time of Michael’s trial in January.
There’s another documentary on Michael Schmidt now being put together by ichannel, and of course, Norman Lofts is working on a part 2 to the raw milk story as well.
