What is it?
The core of the Breuss Cancer Cure is a rigid diet consisting of a 42-day fast in combination with special
vegetable juices and teas. Additional recommendations are included, for instance, to avoid so-called water
Rudolph Breuss was born in Austria in 1899. He first worked as an electrician, and later as a naturopath. He
developed the Breuss Cancer Cure..
Ingredients, application and dosage
Breuss allotted three teas for all types of cancers: “sage tea”, “kidney tea” and “cranesbill tea”. “Sage tea”
includes Salvia officinalis (sage), Hypericum perforatum (St. John’s wort), Mentha piperita (peppermint)
and Melissa officinalis (balm) in a specific ratio. The tea could be taken as desired. “Kidney tea” includes
horsetail Equisetum arvense (balm), Urtica dioica (stinging nettle), Polygonum aviculare (knotgrass) and
Hypericum perforatum (St. John’s wort), at a special ratio and to be taken only for the first three weeks. ”
Cranesbill tea” includes Geranium robertianum (red cranesbill) and only one half cup of cold tea should be
ingested per day. For special types of cancer, additional teas are recommended. The use of sugar was not

Understanding What A Cancer Diet Is With regards to a cancer treatment, every food that we eat or drink can be
categorized into several different categories:
• 1) Foods that feed and strengthen the cancer cells and/or the
microbes in the cancer cells and body. Examples would be: refined
sugar, refined flour, soda pop, dairy products, etc.
• 2) Foods that cause cancer (e.g. trans fatty acids [margarine, french
fries and virtually every other processed food you buy], aspartame
[Diet Coke, NutraSweet, Equal, etc.], MSG, polyunsaturated oils
[e.g. corn oil], etc.)
• 3) Foods that directly interfere with alternative treatments for cancer
(e.g. chlorine, fluoride, alcohol, coffee, etc.)
• 4) Foods that occupy and distract the immunity system from focusing
on killing the cancer cells (e.g. beef, turkey, etc.)
• 5) Foods that contain nutrients that kill the cancer cells, stop the
spread of cancer, or in some other way help treat the cancer (e.g.
purple grapes with seeds and skin, red raspberries with seeds,
strawberries with seeds, broccoli, cauliflower, several herbs, carrots,
pineapples, almonds, etc.)
In addition there are things like cooking vegetables. The cooking destroys the enzymes in the vegetables and make them far less digestible and farless effective in treating cancer. Pasteurizing any food or drink also does
Ideally, during a cancer treatment, if foods are allowed on a particular diet, 100% of everything you eat should be in the category of “Foods that contain nutrients that kill the cancer cells, stop the spread of cancer, or in
some other way help treat the cancer.” Whenever you eat a food that is not in that category, you are interfering with your cancer treatment!
This is why so many cancer diets are very high in certain raw vegetables and certain raw fruits.
