Johanna Budwig was born on September 30, 1908. Her parents were Elisabeth and Hermann Budwig. Her father worked as a mechanic and her mother was a housewife who died in 1920. After graduating, she joined the Deaconess institution of Kaiserswerth in 1926 and worked as a deaconess.

Over many years, she developed the Oil-Protein started to treat cancer patients. Up in the 70s she held more than 200 lectures worldwide, and retreat then more and more from the public, because the attacks against her became massive. Meanwhile pulled out of Bad Zwischenahn to the Black Forest, she focused on the treatment of cancer patients that she treated in her practice in Dietersweiler, just a few kilometers away from the Hotel Lauterbad, in which she also applied the laser therapy for many years.

Together, they held several lectures both in 1998 and 1999 on alternative cancer therapies and the Oil-Protein Diet in particular and published two books together.

The Oil-Protein Diet

2003 – today

Extract from the book: The great cookbook and textbook of the Oil-Protein Diet by Lothar Hirneise

This book was written by me because I felt it was urgent to educate people about what I was able to learn about the Oil-Protein Diet by Dr Budwig. After the death of Dr Budwig in 2003, a dynamic developed, which I consider was very negative. Since her death, around the world numerous experts came forward, writing books about the Oil-Protein Diet, publishing new recipes and inventing supposedly improved…. READ MORE
Founded in 2006 and run by Dr. Budwig’s only pupil, Lothar Hirneise, who studied with Dr. Budwig for 4 years before her death and who is the only person who wrote two books together with her.

In our Budwig Center Germany we offer the 3E-Program. The Budwig Protocol is offered in addition to natural detoxification measures and various types of energy and mind work and applications.
This is the only place worldwide where you are guaranteed to receive Dr. Budwig’s Oil Protein Diet in its completely original form, i.e. the form which Dr. Budwig taught and with which she reaped unusual cancer treatment successes.

The 3E-Program is a 4 week residential program delivered in our Center in southern Germany – the place in which Dr. Budwig lived and worked. The entire program is offered in English language and is ideal for people with cancer interested in implementing the Budwig approach. We offer an excellent track record for helping an impressive number of so-called terminal cancer patients recover and/or to dramatically extend their lifespan.

Unfortunately we have observed that several years after Dr. Budwig’s death in 2003, some health professionals have rebranded themselves as „Budwig Centers“ or have become self-appointed „Budwig Experts“ or „Budwig Therapists“ and thereby misleading cancer patients.
With our center and our program we want to make sure that you have access to the only place worldwide deserving to be called „Budwig Center“ and to offer the original Budwig Therapy Program for people with cancer.


“The Budwig Center Germany is not associated in any way with the Budwig Center in Malaga / Spain. In our opinion, the protocols and recommended treatments of that Center, are not consistent with the teachings of Dr Johanna Budwig, which we follow very strictly. Our co-founder Lothar Hirneise worked closely with Dr Budwig for several years and the protocols used by our center are faithful to her teachings. It was those specific teachings that gave her great results.”
