This combo pack includes (2) 16-ounce bottles of our artisan cold-pressed organic flax oil and Dr. Johanna Budwig's book, Flax Oil As a True Aid Against Arthritis Heart Infarction Cancer and Other Diseases, in paperback. This is perfect for those wanting to start the Flax Oil & Cottage Cheese (FOCC) diet protocol. A great resource for this diet is the Yahoo Groups FlaxSeedOil2 (details below).
The purpose of this group is the discussion of Dr. Johanna Budwig's Diet and Protocol for cancer, heart disease, arthritis & other conditions. Members give personal experiences and information for educational purposes. This should not be taken as medical advice. If medical advice is needed, it should be sought from those who are qualified. Everyone is responsible for their own decisions and choices.
FlaxSeedOil2 is one of the best sources of reliable information on the Budwig Protocol in the English-speaking world. In 2001, this group was started by Cliff Beckwith who overcame advanced prostate cancer while in his 70's. In 2002, Cliff transferred ownership to Wilhelm Hansen, who developed our file system. Wilhelm, a native German, studied Dr. Budwig's German-language books as well as those in English. He wrote excellent posts which can be read in the archives by using the search box. After years of writing messages both men retired from the group. In 2007, Wilhelm transferred ownership to Sandra Olson, a moderator for several years and the creator of www.budwig-videos.com We have many Budwig experts in our group.
Flax Oil: 8 months
What is the difference between gold and brown flax seed?
Nutritionally, not much. Our reason for using golden flax seed is taste. Golden flax seed has a fresher and nuttier flavor, while brown flax seed can often have a bitter flavor.
Are the plastic bottles BPA-free?
Yes, we use BPA-free bottles made of Polyethylene and the main difference is that our bottle is black to protect it from light which can degrade the oil.
Do your artisan cold-pressed oils need to be shipped refrigerated? Does the shipping time affect the oils?
Very high heat (over 300 degrees) or prolonged heat over a very long time can degrade the omega-rich oils. However, the relatively short shipment times and variable seasonal temperatures encountered during shipment have been found to be irrelevant when tested. Even shipments arriving during the summer heat waves can be guaranteed as being potent and unharmed.
Can I cook with your artisan cold-pressed oils?
Cooking with our artisan cold-pressed oils is not recommended and really defeats the purpose of Foods Alive taking such great care in pressing the oil at a low temperature. The omega essential fatty acids are very delicate and really high heat will destroy them. But you can use it after cooking on a number of dishes by adding it your dish once it's on your plate and ready to consume.

Foods Alive believes the freshest and best tasting seed grows in the most nutrient-dense & mineral-rich soil. Before we purchase each batch of seed, we receive a sample and test it to make sure it sprouts and then we press it into oil to find the lightest and most pleasant-tasting one. It must pass these tests before we choose a batch of seed.
