I recently saw a friend in London who is minefield of information on all things holistic and healthy. I make sure I always have pen and paper ready when I see her because she gives me so many ideas to google…
She introduced me to the famed Dr. Catherine Kousmine (1904-1992), – a Russian (her family was well-to-do and fled the country during the Russian revolution) scientist based in Switzerland who believed in nutrition-based medicine. Dr. Catherine Kousmine devoted her life to medical research in Switzerland, with special interest in the effects of food on overall health, and cancer and disease prevention.
The diet she recommends is rich in cereals, raw foods and essential fatty acids, and has thousands of faithful health-conscious followers around the world.
The highlight of Dr Kousmine’s diet is her power breakfast, the infamous Kousmine cream- based on a mixture of ingredients that she developed with the German doctor Johanna Budwig. It is also known as: Crème Budwig. Crème Budwig is an excellent way to kick off the detoxification process every morning, while giving your body all the nutrition it needs for glowing skin and robust immunity.
Dr Budwig (born in Germany in 1908- 2003) has been referred to as a top European Cancer Research Scientist, Biochemist, German Pharmacologist, and Physicist. She was a seven-time Nobel Prize nominee. She is considered one of the world’s leading authorities on fats and oils.
Her research has shown the negative effects that commercially processed fats and oils have on destroying cells, and their food-processing function in the body, resulting in chronic or terminal disease.
She confirms that the commercial processing of fats destroys the field of electrons that allow the cell membranes in our bodies to function properly. Without the proper metabolism of fats, every vital function and every organ is affected. This includes new cell regeneration, and the elimination of waste and toxins, which triggers various chronic diseases.
Not only is Dr. Kousmine’s breakfast recipe delicious and highly nutritious, but it also enables your body to kick start the detoxification process upon rising.
Kousmine-Budwig breakfast recipe
(choose organic ingredients)
- 4 tablespoons quark (or yoghurt)
- 2 tablespoons organic flaxseed or organic sunflower oil
Mix the quark and the flaxseed oil in a bowl with a fork, until you obtain a rich, white and creamy blend.
Add to this mixture
- 2 tsp honey or banana
- ½ lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons freshly ground flaxseeds or 6 almonds, 6 hazelnuts, or any other type of nuts, excluding peanuts
- 2 tablespoons fresh whole-wheat rice, millet, buckwheat, oats (not oatmeal)
- 1 portion of seasonal fresh fruit. (strawberries, raspberries, cherries, grapes, grated apple etc..)
- Optional : add fresh mint
Grind the nuts, or flaxseed and the cereals. Crush the banana with a fork. Add all the ingredients to the quark and mix well.
Apart from being a rich source of calcium, iron & zinc, this breakfast is rich in linolenic acid (healthy fats) and provides substantial levels of vitamins and minerals. The combination of these ingredients is what makes this recipe particularly efficient.
Dr Kousmine’s diet is based on 5 principles, amongst them a healthy diet and a healthy colon. She recommended intestinal cleanses, including enemas and colon cleansing.
The benefits of this simple technique are numerous and include:
- Toxin, fat and cellulite elimination
- Improved digestion and natural constipation relief
- Improved natural restful sleep,
- Mood and energy boost
- Clear skin and radiant complexion.
