The Rudolf Breuss Cancer Cure is the most wildly acclaimed treatment for cancer. His book has sold over 900,000 copies, been translated into five languages, offering simple and effective healing prescription for cancer and chronic disease boasting of over 45,000 testimonials from cured sufferers.
Hilde Hemmes: “What convinced me most about the book, apart from the simple and effective cures, were the convincing testimonials written by those who were cured of disease” said Hilde. “Over 45,000 people attest to the fact that Breuss ‘s simple treatment had cured them, often after they had been ‘given up’ by the orthodox medical establishment. This evidence was hard to ignore! I just had to let my herbal friends in Australia share with this man’s extraordinary gift for healing.”
Rudolf Breuss was a healer from Austria, an educated man who had an incredible understanding of, and love for, his fellow human beings. Born in 1899, he turned his attention to finding an alternative and more gentle treatment for cancer and other diseases than that offered by conventional medicine. It was a simple German book written over 300 years previously that expounded the value and use of fruit and vegetable juices which was to capture his attention and direct his work for the rest of his life.
Cancer Theory of Rudolf Breuss
Breuss maintained that cancer, whenever it occurs in the body, feeds and grows from protein. He therefore deduced that if one fasted for what has now been confirmed as an ideal period of 42 days, during which various herbal teas and juices are taken to detoxify, cleanse and eliminate, the cancer would starve, be absorbed and subsequently pass out of the body one way or another. Radical thinking that flew in the face of the accepted medical wisdom, but is now used all over the world and known as the Breuss Total Cancer Treatment.
Raw fruit and vegetable juices have always been used and recommended in natural medicine as part of the healing system for many ailments and chronic complaints. Raw juices contain antioxidants and living enzymes that science has identified as an imperative part of everyone’s diet if they wish to stay healthy and maintain a defense against all the toxins of today’s environment.
It is against this backdrop that Rudolf Breuss developed his Total Cancer Treatment, utilising the therapeutic properties of vegetable juices and herbal teas that have been implicated in the cure of many types of cancer.
The Breuss Tea mix and a specific mixture of organically grown carrot, beetroot, celery, Chinese radish and potato worked wonders on his patients. His mixture provided, in liquid form, all of the minerals and vitamins required by the body during the 42 day fast, whilst the body’s own resources are used in dealing with the diseased tissue. Testimonial after testimonial confirmed that his treatment worked.
The same blend of the Breuss Vegetable Juice is used in all manners of diseases, taken for a lesser period of time or with food, depending on the severity of the condition. Breuss’s book outlines cures for a variety of ailments – serious and those not so serious.
Various cancers, leukaemia and prostate disorders – even hay fever and infertility – have a cure according to Breuss! Cancer can only live on the protein of solid food. Therefore, if you drink nothing but vegetable juice and teas for 42 days the cancerous tumor dies off while the body continues to do well.
When he was in his eighties, Breuss was taken to court by the Austrian medical fraternity who considered his simple and inexpensive cure to be too simple and inexpensive! He was acquitted when his defense lawyer, a cancer sufferer cured by Breuss, presented an entourage of cured patients who all attested to the success of his Total Cancer Treatment. The Austrian President, Rudolf Kirchschlaeger, even intervened on his behalf!
It is easy to see why Hilde Hemmes was so inspired when she heard his story. “Rudolf Breuss was a shining example of what a natural healer should be and he has been an inspiration to me. I have tried his six day vegetable and herbal tea cleansing diet and recommend that everyone should give their bodies a rest every six months. I felt absolutely fantastic and re-energised” said Hilde, who often works 14 hours a day.
Breuss Vegetable Juice Mixture
- 55% red beet root, 300 grams
- 20% carrots, 100 grams
- 20% celery root, 100 grams
- 3% raw potato, 10 to 30 grams options
- 2% Black Radish, 10 to 30 grams The potato is optional except for liver cancer where it plays an important part.
This therapy can be done with either homemade juices or with fermented vegetable juices from a health food store. Do not drink more than half a liter a day. The cocktail is made up with beets, carrots, celery roots, black radishes and potato.
Mix all these vegetables in a juicier and then strain to get rid of any sediment. Any solids may provide a breeding ground for cancer. Before starting the cure try one quarter liter of juice per day with your normal meal. Take this juice by the spoonful.
Don’t swallow right away and salivate it well. The instructions are to take one half cup of cold kidney tea first thing in the morning.
Then 30 to 60 minutes later take two cups warm herb tea made from St. John’s Wort, Peppermint and Lemon Balm. After another 30 to 60 minutes take a little vegetable juice and salivate well before swallowing.
Fifteen to 30 minutes later take another sip of vegetable juice. You should take some juice 10 to 15 times throughout the morning but only when you feel like it.
In between, drink warm or cold sage tea without sugar, as much as you like. At noon take one half cup of kidney tea and again before retiring at night. In the afternoon take a few sips of tea.
Any liquid should be sipped and well salivated. Kidney tea should be taken only during the first three weeks of the treatment. Along with this and throughout the time of therapy drink one cup of cold Cranesbill tea (geranium robertianum) per day.
Cranesbill contains a little radium. Sipping small quantities of tea and juice stimulates the flow of saliva and reduces the workload of the intestines.
For cancer of the bones and lungs, prepare a tea of Plantain (plantago major), Icelandic Moss, Lungwort, ground Ivy and Mullein. It does not matter if you can’t get them all.
Steep for 10 minutes and drink as much of this tea as you like, the more the better. In the case of tuberculosis you should also take one teaspoon of plantain seed along with a little water or tea.
During the complete treatment you should not take any food other than the vegetable juice mixture.
Rudolph Breuss was born in Austria in 1899. First he worked as an electrician, then as a naturopath. He developed the Breuss Cancer Cure or Breuss Total Cancer Treatment (ref 1-3). Breuss died in 1990 (ref 4).
Breuss Cancer Cure Theory
Breuss postulated that cancer cells live exclusively on solid foods (“…the only patients that died were patients that were given something to eat.” (ref 1-3)). He claimed that cancer cells are not able to feed upon vegetable juices and the cancers will die if patients ingest only vegetable juices and special teas for 42 days. Breuss quoted Bruno Vornarburg who said that the carcinogenic process was fed by proteins and that if there are no proteins in food, the tumor is unable to survive (ref 1-3). Furthermore, Breuss claimed that after a diet free of proteins, the body attacks and destroys the tumor like an “operation without knife”. Breuss also believed his intervention was not only a cure but also a protection against cancer (ref 1-3).
Breuss Cancer Treatment
The treatment is described in three books written by Breuss (ref 1-3), but it is not clear whether the publishers have changed, added or left out original statements. For example, the English translation of Breuss’ book does not mention that he did not allow radiation treatment and injections during his cure (ref 2). Further amendments were written by Thomar (ref 5,6).
Breuss rigidly stipulated that cancer patients are not allowed to drink or eat anything other than his juices and teas for 42 days. Breuss gave strict instructions about the preparation and taking of the juices and teas. Juices include beetroot, carrots, celeriac, black radish and potatoes if the patient has liver cancer. All vegetables used have to be organically grown and sediments of the vegetables must be removed. The maximum ingested amount of juice is 500 ml per day.
“He (Breuss) claimed that cancer cells are not able to feed upon vegetable juices and the cancers will die if patients ingest only vegetable juices and special teas for 42 days”
Breuss allotted three teas for all types of cancers: sage tea, kidney tea and cranesbill tea. Sage tea includes sage (Salvia officinalis), St. John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum), peppermint (Mentha piperata) and balm (Melissa officinalis) in a special ratio. It could be taken when desired. Kidney tea includes horsetail (Equisetum arvense), stinging nettle (Urtica dioica), knotgrass (Polygonum aviculare) and St. John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum), in a special ratio and must be taken only for the first three weeks. Cranesbill tea includes red cranesbill (Geranium robertianum) and only one half cup of cold tea should be ingested per day. For special types of cancer, additional teas are recommended. All teas have to be taken without sugar.
For leukemia, Breuss stated that the patient had to drink the teas and juices but could eat everything except for meat soup, beef, pork and reheated food (ref 1-3) (the English translation mentions beef soup, pork, chemical food additives, burnt food and fats (ref 2)).
Breuss further stipulated that patients can not start the Breuss Cancer Cure immediately after surgery, but have to wait at least two to five months. No concurrent treatments are allowed during the treatment. He recommended fresh air and exercise and that smoking should be stopped. Furthermore, the patient must not sleep above so-called “water veins” (sources of ground radiation) and should avoid moth powder, insecticides, sprays or air fresheners in the house. Breuss claimed that patients who had completed the Breuss Cancer Cure should never again eat reheated food but should be allowed to gradually start eating salt-reduced, light food and to drink approximately 60 ml of the vegetable juice per day for a further two to four weeks.
Additional instructions were added in 1987 (ref 1, 2): patients should take one or two bowls of onion broth a day (only the liquid). To support the heart, patients should take 20 to 40 drops of hawthorn tincture (Crataegus oxyacantha). People with diabetes should continue insulin treatment.
Additional instructions were added in 1990 (ref 1): for substitution of calcium and potassium, patients should drink a tea made from plantain lance (Plantago lanceolata), broad-leaved plantain (Plantago major), Iceland moss (Cetraria islandica), lungwort (Pulmonaria officinalis), ground ivy (Glechoma hederacea), mullein (Verbascum thapsus) and Meum mutellina herb (Ligusticum mutellina). Patients with liver or gall bladder problems should drink a broth of bean pods instead of onion broth.
Breuss Cancer Cure Claims of Efficacy
Breuss claimed, that since 1950 he has treated more than 2,000 patients successfully. He estimates that since 1986, a further 40,000 patients with cancer and other “incurably sick persons” have been healed through his methods. As proof he cited testimonials and letters of thanks from the years 1971 to 1985 (ref 1-3) . Breuss claimed that treatment failures could only occur if his instructions were not followed strictly (ref 1-3) . He believed that about one million people could be healed, “if the so-called cancer research and the orthodox medicine would be with me instead against me” (ref 1).
Breuss Cancer Cure Prevalence of Use
Although the book the “Breuss Cancer Cure” was translated into Chinese, Croatian, English, French, Greek, Italian, Polish, Russian, Serbian and Spanish (ref 1, 2), no exact data on prevalence of use have been published. Internet searches located several patients reporting their experiences with the treatment (ref 6-8), and an internet homepage reported 14,820 visitors between August 2004 and the middle of September 2005 (ref 6). The Internet search also found one physician (ref 9) and one spa hotel (ref 10) offering the Breuss treatment.
Breuss Cancer Cure Costs
The juices are produced and promoted by Biotta INC. (ref 11) and Zwicky GmbH (ref 12). The juices can be bought in health food stores, drugstores and through the internet. The required 21 litres cost between €89 and €122.
