Research Shows How Broccoli Can Protect Your Arteries

The Dr. Budwig’s healing protocol was very well known for it ability to prevent and even reverse cardiovascular disease. Though the Oil-Protein recipe is central in her nutritional therapy, Dr. Budwig also indicated eating generous amounts of vegetables, multiple times per day.
Some of the most of vegetables come from the “cruciferous” family. This includes vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and cauliflower. Throughout history, many like Dr. Budwig have talked about the healing properties of these vegetables. Yet scientists are now discovering how and whythese vegetables are so good for your health, especially for your cardiovascular system.
Researchers from the Imperial College in London are researching a chemical found in broccoli and other green leafy vegetables. Sulforaphane,as it is called, naturally occurs in cruciferous vegetables and is being studied for its ability to protect against clogged arteries and heart attacks.
There are thousands of miles of arteries in the body but certain areas clog more easily than others. There are special proteins that protect our blood vessels, but these proteins are not active more vulnerable blood vessels. This study found that Sulforaphane boosts our natural defense mechanism by “switching on” this protective protein.
Researchers are now looking to see if these vegetables themselves, rather than the purified chemical have the same effect on the body. They will also have to conduct the study with humans, as this particular study was done with mice.
Modern scientists are working to understand the complex mechanisms behind nutritional therapy. Yet, Dr. Budwig was basically conducting “practical” trials of her nutritional therapy by documenting the outcomes of her over 2000 patients in Germany. But unlike many studies that look to “isolate” single mechanisms, Dr. Budwig took the whole body approach in helping her patients heal from disease. Your body is a complex system with many, many parts. All of these parts interact with each other in so many ways that we are just beginning to understand it in all its complexity.
The Budwig Protocol has so many aspects that it may take decades to understand them all. Nevertheless, Dr. Budwig already demonstrated a 90% success rate (verified in court) and many people around the world have been helped by her wonderful healing protocol. We should all learn from Dr. Budwig and benefit from her incredible wealth of knowledge.
