Healing fats are among the necessary nutrients needed to prevent and reverse degenerative disease, heart disease, cancer, and Type 2 diabetes. They can also help reverse arthritis, obesity, PMS, allergies, asthma, fatigue, skin conditions, and yeast and fungal infections. At the same time, more health problems come from damaged oils than any other part of nutrition.
Udo Erasmus exposes the manufacturing processes that turn healing fats into killing fats, explains the effects of these damaged fats on human health, and discloses the knowledge you need to avoid the damaged ones and choose health-promoting oils. He also explores the therapeutic potential of flax, hemp, olive, fish, evening primrose, borage, and black currant.
"Peace is the deepest state of being and out of that comes love. On that level, love is the superlative state of being because love is all about giving." - Udo Erasmus
"When you're fully present in the space that you occupy and you're not lost in your thoughts, it feels so good to be alive." - Udo Erasmus
"While we're here on this planet, knowing that it's temporary, why don't we push to thrive rather than just try escaping from the pain by chasing carrots? We were made to thrive." - Udo Erasmus
"Peace is the deepest state of being and out of that comes love. On that level, love is the superlative state of being because love is all about giving. Giving doesn't happen until we feel full or more than full with love. When that feeling happens, there's nothing else to do but to give and help others." - Udo Erasmus
"Oils are the most sensitive of all of our nutrients so they should receive the most care including protection from light, oxygen, and heat. Unfortunately, we're mostly giving them the least amount of care. We're just throwing them into a frying pan and turning them into smoke. When we burn the oils, they burn us. When we fry the oils, they fry our health. They're vindictive and treat us like we treat them." - Udo Erasmus
"How can food not be medicine? Your entire body is made out of light, oxygen, water, and nutrients. Nothing else. According to nature, drugs are not part of making human body's that already work. No one has ever had a drug deficiency. We throw drugs at problems to suppress symptoms but that is not fixing the cause. We can fix the cause by coming back aligned with nature. People aren't well, they're either out of line with their awareness, life energy, inspiration, movement, relationships, or the big picture." - Udo Erasmus
Udo Erasmus is a nutritionist, lecturer, and writer specializing in fats, oils, cholesterol, and essential fatty acids. He was born in Poland during the Second World War to parents from Latvia and Estonia. His family emigrated to Canada when he was ten years old. He began his university studies at the age of sixteen and gained a B.Sc. in Zoology with a major in Psychology. This was followed by graduate studies in Biochemistry and Genetics at the University of British Columbia.
In 1980, Erasmus was poisoned by pesticides, and, as a result of the experience, began to research the relationship between nutrition and health. He gave special attention to the effects of fats and oils on human health. Erasmus had become intrigued by the fact that Eskimos consumed largely fats, such as whale blubber, yet remained relatively healthy well into later life. In his research he discovered what he considered "healthy fats", that is fats which were beneficial rather than harmful to health. His thesis for his Ph.D. in nutrition was published with the title Fats and Oils in 1986. It was revised and expanded under the new name, Fats That Heal Fats That Kill (1993).
Udo Erasmus has partnered with natural foods company Flora Inc., of Lynden, Washington, and Burnaby, British Columbia to produce the essential fatty acid blend called Udo's Choice Oil Blend as well as a line of probiotics and nutritional supplements.
