The rigid diet consisted of a 42-day fast in combination with special vegetable juices and teas is the core of the Breuss Cancer Cure. Besides that, certain recommendations are included, for example avoiding the so-called water veins.
The Breuss’s theory is that the cancer needs solid food in order to survive in the human body. It is important to mention that these claims of efficacy actually are not supported by any acceptable evidence and also there aren’t reliable scientific data that will support them.
Another recommendation for cancer patients is to avoid fast as it could be dangerous due to the potential risk of general malnutrition. While the patients undergo his treatment, Breuss bans the conventional cancer treatment, but because of that there is a risk that the patients will discontinue conventional treatment.
In addition to this, there is lack of scientific investigations about the benefits and dangers of Breuss Cancer Cure.
What is it?
As it is mentioned above, the Breuss Cancer Cure is rigid diet and it lasts 42 days along with special vegetable juices and teas.
Rudolph Breuss was born in Austria in 1899. His first work was as an electrician, but later he became naturopath. Breuss developed his Breuss Cancer Cure or Breuss Total Cancer Treatment. He died in 1990.
Ingredients, application and dosage
It comes to unique juice that is able to provide exceptional outcomes for dealing with cancer. With his method, Breuss has treated over 45, 000 people who suffered from cancer and some other incurable illness. As Brojs stated, the cancer is able to endure only with the help of proteins.
This diet is specially designed and really unique eating regimen which lasts 42 subsequent days. He recommends consummation of tea and his special vegetable juice, in which the beetroot is the main ingredient. In a period of these 42 days, all cancer cells will starve and furthermore will die, but in same time the overall health is enhanced.
It is important to mention that for the preparation of this special juice you should use organic veggies. Here is exactly what you need:
- Beetroot (55%)
- Carrots (20%)
- Celery root (20%)
- Potatoes (3%)
- Radishes (2%)
Put all of the above mentioned ingredients in blender and blend them all well. After that, you can start the treatment.
You should be aware that you should not exaggerate it with the consumption of this combination. Drink as much as your body needs.
Beetroot is abundant with anti-oxidants, C, B1, B2, B6 vitamins, folic and pantothenic acid and the minerals– potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, sodium, iron, zinc. It is considered as one of the most health useful veggies. Magenta pigments provide the red color in beets and is referred as betacyanins.
There are numerous research studies which have proved that beetroot is incredibly beneficial in treatments against leukemia and cancer.
The beets are rich in betaine, an amino acid with efficient anti-cancer properties. In addition to that, it is strong anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and detoxing representative. The studies verify that betaine is able to damage the cells in the growth tissue.
You can use beetroot for treatment of different types of cancer and the findings of one study exposed that 100% of topics dealing with cancer favorably responded to beet treatment.
This plant is beneficial for pregnant women and the reason for that are the high levels of folic acid. It also can enhance the function of the liver and gall bladder, without constipation. Beetroot assists with headaches, toothaches, dysentery, bone issues, skin problems and menstrual discomforts. We can say that it is real all-purpose medical plant which should be an essential part of the diet of all people.
This treatment for cancer is described in three books written by Breuss. However, it is unclear if the publishers have changed, added or left out any of the original statements. For instance, in the English version of Breuss’ book it is not mentioned that he did not allow radiation treatment and injections concurrently with his treatment. The further amendments were written by Thomar.
It is of extreme importance to mention that Breuss rigidly stipulated for cancer patients to drink or eat anything other than the juices and teas he recommended in that period for 42 days. Moreover, he provided strict instructions about the method of preparation and ingestion of specific juices and teas. In cases where the patient has been diagnosed with cancer of the liver it is recommended to include beetroot, carrots, celeriac, black radish and potatoes. All of the vegetables utilized during the treatment must be organically grown and vegetable sediments were to be removed. The maximum ingested amount of this juice is 500 ml daily.
Breuss allotted only three teas for all types of cancer: “sage tea”, “kidney tea” and “cranesbill tea”.
Namely, the “Sage tea” includes Salvia officinalis (sage), Hypericum perforatum (St. John’s wort), Mentha piperita (peppermint) and Melissa officinalis (balm) in a specific ratio. This tea can be consumed as desired. The “Kidney tea” includes horsetail Equisetum arvense (balm), Urtica dioica (stinging nettle), Polygonum aviculare (knotgrass) and Hypericum perforatum (St. John’s wort), at a special ratio and it is allowed to be taken only in the first three weeks. The “Cranesbill tea” includes Geranium robertianum (red cranesbill) and just ½ cup of cold tea can be consumed per day. When it comes to special types of cancer, additional teas are recommended. Use of sugar was not permitted.
Patients that suffer from leukemia, would have to drink the recommended teas and juices, but can eat anything else. Meat soup, beef, pork and reheated food (the English translation mentions beef soup, pork, chemical food additives, burnt food and fats) are excluded.
In addition to this, Breuss stipulated that patients should not start the Breuss Cancer Cure immediately after their surgery. Instead, they should wait at least 2 to 5 months. During this treatment, any other concurrent treatments were not permitted. Breuss highly recommends fresh air and exercise, while the smoking should be stopped. The patient should avoid to lay above so-called “water veins” (sources of ground radiation) and also should avoid moth powder, insecticides, aerosol cans or air fresheners in the house.
As Breuss stated, patients who had followed the Breuss Cancer Cure never again should consume any reheated food, but gradually are allowed to start to eat salt-reduced, light food and should drink approximately 60 ml of the vegetable juice per day for another 2 to 4 weeks.
In 1987 certain additional instructions were added. The patients should take 1 – 2 bowls of onion broth on daily basis (only the liquid). In order to support their heart, patients should take 20 – 40 drops of Crataegus oxyacantha (hawthorn) tincture. Those people who have diabetes should continue with their insulin treatment.
The uInstructions published in 1990 say that as substitution of calcium and potassium, patients should consume tea made from Plantago lanceolata (plantain lance), Plantago major (broad-leaved plantain),Cetraria islandica (Iceland moss), Pulmonaria officinalis (lungwort), Glechoma hederacea (ground ivy), Verbascum thapsus (mullein) and Ligusticum mutellina (Meum mutellina herb). Patients who have liver or gall bladder problems instead of onion broth, they should drink a broth of bean pods.
Claims of efficacy
Breuss claimed that since 1950 successfully he had treated over 2000 patients. Additionally, he had estimated that since 1986, additional 40 000 patients with cancer and other “incurable diseases” were healed with the help of his methods.
With intention to prove that, he cited testimonials and letters of thanks written in the period from 1971 to 1985. Breuss explains that any failures could occur if the instructions are not strictly adhered. He is convinced that more than 1 million people could be healed, “if the so-called cancer research and the orthodox medicine would be with me instead against me.”
Mechanism of action/alleged indications
As Breuss postulated, cancer cells live exclusively on solid foods (“…the only patients that died were patients that were given something to eat.”). Moreover, he claimed that cancer cells don’t have the ability to feed on vegetable juices and cancer cells die in case when the patients take only vegetable juices and special teas for a period of 42 days.
It is interesting that Breuss quoted Bruno Vornarburg. Vornarburg said that the carcinogenic process feeds on proteins. Furthermore, the tumor cannot continue to exist in case if patient lives on a protein-free diet. Breussadds that after a protein-free diet, human body attacks and destroys the tumor on specific way “surgery without a knife”. Last, but not least, Breuss was convinced that his intervention is nly a cure, but it also serves preventively against cancer.
