    Budwig, Dr. Johanna

    Bei diesem Buch handelt es sich um ein weiteres Kochbuch von Dr. Johanna Budwig: z.B. Müsli als Rohkostsuppen, Salate aus Wildkräutern, besondere Getränke für Kranke und Gesunde. Brigitte Herold schreibt in ihrer Rezension zu Krebs – ein Fettproblem. Richtige Wahl und Verwendung der Fette, dass die großen Erkenntnisse von Frau Dr. Johanna Budwig ein Schattendasein führten. Sie habe mit ihrer Öl-Eiweiß-Kost ein wahres Stoffwechsel-Wunder entwickelt. Bis heute blieben ihre Erkenntnisse leider nur einer Minderheit zugänglich, ihre Bücher seien heute zum Großteil nicht mehr erhältlich. Daß Fettsäuren der eigentliche Lichtträger und Lichtspeicher im Organismus seien, werde nun von anderen Seiten der Wissenschft bestätigt (F. A. Popp). Auch neue Erkenntnisse der Diabetes- und Allergie-Forschung gäben ihr immer wieder recht.

Mrs. Lorimer learned about everything from cropping cycles to childrearing, food customs and dietaries, handling social malfactors (few) and having parties and dances. The rigors of their trek into Hunza and the Lorimer’s difficulties obtaining any additional supplies well-illustrates the isolation of these people.
