Flaxseed Oil Diet

Flaxseed Diet


This is not a recommendation.

My Personal Recipe

I personally use 1 tablespoon of Barlean’s Omega Swirl (flax oil – strawberry flavored) plus 1 teaspoon of ground flaxseed with dried berries by Spectrum [both can purchased at “the Vitamin Shoppe” for the cheapest price] with either 1/2 cup of honey greek yogurt from Trader Joe’s or 1/2 cup of lowfat cottage cheese. I use this once every other day and it’s a tasty breakfast.

When something usually sounds too good to be true … well you know the saying. However, I had read the information on the flaxseed oil diet and I gave it to my father because he had two types of cancer, but interestingly his cholesterol dropped in half in one month. Since then I have seen many people drop their cholesterol just by adding this to their diet.

According To Dr. Budwig

According to Dr. Budwig a combination of flaxseed oil, ground flaxseed and cottage cheese produces an effect which aids the immune system. It was suggested by Dr. Budwig that that there are anti-cancer, anti-heart disease and anti-arthritic properties to using this flaxseed oil combination. Interestingly enough after being on this diet for one month my father’s cholesterol dropped in half from high to low normal. Since then I have seen clients try the flaxseed oil with cottage cheese or yogurt and also have beneficial effects on dramatically reducing their cholesterol levels in 1 to 3 months. I have not heard or personally seen any amazing results with regard to cancer. [Please email me with your results.]

From a nutritional perspective Omega 3 (fish oils – alpha-linoleic oils) and Omega 6 (flaxseed – linoleic, amongst others) are beneficial to the body by reducing inflammation as they are precursors to our body manufacturing the non-inflammatory hormones PG-1 and Pg-3. Most of are diets are skewed towards the animals fats or arachidonic acids which a precursors for the inflammatory hormone Pg-2.

On a practical level if you are looking at increasing your consumption of essential fatty acids, (omega 3 and 6), to reduce inflammation and lower cholesterol levels; I wouldn’t really recommend more than 1 to 2 tablespoons of ‘good’ oil’ per day (i.e. flaxseed oil) mixed with 2 to 4 tbsp. of 1% fat cottage cheese (or yogurt – and 1:2 mixture) and also eliminating the ‘bad’ fats (saturated/animal fats) and sugars from your diet.

Headaches and Migraines
Tension headaches are the most common headaches helped by a chiropractor. Tension headaches usually arise from trigger points in the muscles behind the neck, at the base of the skull or in the upper back. Activation of these points refer pain which goes up the neck often up and around the base of the head to the eye. Trigger point therapy and adjusting the neck by a chiropractor gives relief to these factors. Migraines and their origin may be more difficult to pinpoint, often arising from emotional, food sensitivity or other allergy triggers.
