I am so thrilled and honored to welcome Udo Erasmus to the show today. I have been a fan of his for years (decades?!) since discovering Udo’s Oil, which first got me interested in living a healthier lifestyle. He has a wealth of knowledge, and I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation; I hope you do too.
We mainly talk about the elephant in the room: seed oils!
Are they truly *bad*?
Why are some seed oils better than others?
How do we achieve an ideal balance between Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids? Why is it important?
Super fascinating stuff. Stay tuned for another interview with him where we discuss his 8-step process 🙂
Here is a little more about Udo and his background:
The legendary Udo Erasmus is the co-founder of the Udo’s Choice line, available in Whole Foods and other health food stores worldwide. Udo designed the machinery to make oils with health in mind and was a pioneer of the flax oil industry, a billion-dollar industry. However, Udo went through a challenging journey to become the man he is today. As a child of war, Udo’s life started with intense struggles. As an adult, he suffered from pesticide poisoning in 1980, leaving doctors baffled about the treatment. Udo decided to take his health into his own hands, leading him to research. His discoveries lit a passion in him to find answers to life’s big questions that would hopefully bring peace to him and the world one day.
Today, Udo is a celebrated speaker and the author of numerous books, including the bestseller Fats that Heal, Fats that Kill, which has sold over 250,000 copies. He teaches at events with Tony Robbins and Deepak Chopra, was the main speaker at an international brain health conference, and has traveled to over 30 countries to conduct thousands of live presentations, media interviews, and staff trainings, impacting over 25,000,000 lives with his message about oils, health, peace, nature, and human nature. Udo has an extensive education in biochemistry, genetics, biology, and nutrition, including a master’s degree in counseling psychology.
You can connect with him on his website and on Instagram.
