Method Kousmine


Description of the Method

The Kousmine method is a dietary system based on the experience that Dr. Catherine Kousmine has gained in the field of nutritional insights and applications.
The Soviet researcher – born in 1904 in Hvalynsky, and qualified in medicine at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) – dedicated her life (which ended in 1992) to finding ways to fight cancer, degenerative and autoimmune diseases, through nutrition; right from the start, in her experiments with mice (and subsequently also on humans), Dr. Kousmine perceived that cancer increases its destructiveness thanks to a so-called “devitalized” nutrition model, while it is negatively affected by beneficial (forgive the pun) of good foods, defined as “alive”.
Thus was born the Kousmine method, a nutritional regime based on foods rich in functional and active molecules (especially vitamins), considered useful as prevention and (according to the Doctor) as a real therapeutic weapon; obviously, Kousmine admits that food treatment has very different effects based on the stage of the various diseases; the gap between functional disorders in the initial phase and severe degenerative ones is not easy to bridge. However, the Kousmine method has been (and still is) applied obtaining notable improvements in the state of health, even of subjects characterized by advanced clinical pictures, through the aid of selected foods and reinforcement with: food supplements, intestinal hygiene, maintenance of acid-base balance and immuno-modulation.
Due to her tendency to analyze pathology in an alternative way and to apply medicine in an equally alternative way, Dr. Kousmine and her method have been the subject of strong contrasts from the world scientific community (especially oncologists and neurologists), who he never agreed to validate the method; nevertheless, over the years and with the increase in experimental knowledge, several doctors have undertaken the Kousmine system by coming together in theKousmine International Medical Association.

Kousmine method: the practice

The Kousmine method aims to combat tumor, degenerative and autoimmune diseases (multiple sclerosis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, ankylosing spondylitis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus erythematosus, etc.) through nutrition. The practical objective of the Kousmine method is to:

  • Eliminate the body's acidosis which, according to Dr. Kousmine, is the main source of organic imbalance
  • Decrease toxins that aggravate immune system fatigue through intestinal hygiene
  • Provide the body (through a balanced supply of lipids) with the substances necessary for the construction of natural anti-inflammatory substances and cell membranes
  • Guarantee (through correct nutrition) the optimal raw material for tissue replacement
  • Supplement vitamins that are deficient due to insufficient absorption, caused by intestinal disorders, antibiotic treatments, chemotherapy, etc., adding the microelements that the body needs
  • Eliminate risk factors such as smoking, alcohol abuse, exposure to pesticides, toxic substances and electromagnetic waves
  • Reduce stress from excessive fatigue, hectic pace of life and exposure to serious emotional situations.

In summary, the Kousmine method is based on 4 pillars plus 1:

  1. Healthy nutrition: provides essential and necessary nutrients, minimizes the flow of toxic substances, relieves the immune system of the workload
  2. Intestinal hygiene: restores functional integrity to the colon, reduces putrefactive phenomena and moderates absorbed toxins
  3. Complementarity of foods: introduces the substances that should be produced by a healthy organism and provides all the nutrients that are lacking in foods impoverished by the work/conservation processes of the food industry
  4. Fight against acidification of the body: restores the intestinal bacterial flora, promotes intracellular exchanges and decreases the production of free radicals
  5. Optional: produces immuno-modulation of the immune system

From the point of view of food choices, the Kousmine method requires: consuming a maximum of one glass of red wine per day, minimizing animal and hydrogenated fats, eliminating hot-pressed oils, preferring fortified extra virgin olive oil polyunsaturated sugars, eliminate added sugar, eliminate all light foods, prefer (if necessary) whole sugar or honey, prefer (as a drink) natural fruit juices, eliminate ALL industrial pastries (including pure dark chocolate), reduce the meat consumption, favor fish and white meat, reduce milk consumption, favor vegetable milks, reduce dairy products and mature cheeses, favor legumes associated with cereals as a protein source, favor whole grains, reduce coffee, granted tofu and tempeh, drink at least 1.5 liters of water a day, reduce salt consumption, avoid all preserved and therefore “dead” foods: flours, cereal flakes, pre-cooked foods, etc.
Obviously, it is not possible to summarize the Kousmine method in a few lines but, those reported above are certainly the general nutritional indications to understand the intent of the Doctor and theKousmine International Medical Association.
