Today I’m so thrilled and honored to welcome Udo Erasmus to the show. I’ve been a fan of his for years (decades?!) since I discovered Udo’s Oil, which I first started to become interested in a healthier lifestyle. He’s a wealth of knowledge and I enjoyed our conversation so much; I hope you’ll take a listen.
We talk mostly about the elephant in the room: seed oils!
Are they actually *bad*?
Why are some seed oils better than others?
How do we get an ideal balance of Omega 3s and 6s? Why is it important?
Super fascinating stuff. Stay tuned for another interview with him where we discuss his 8-step process 🙂
Here’s a bit more about Udo and his background:
The legendary Udo Erasmus is the co-founder of Udo’s Choice line, which can be found in Whole Foods and other health food stores worldwide. Udo designed the machinery for making oils with health in mind and pioneered flax oil, a billion dollar industry. However, Udo walked a difficult path tobecome the man he is today. Being a child of war, Udo’s life began with intense struggle. As an adult, he got pesticide poisoning in 1980, leaving doctors at a loss regarding treatment. Deciding to take his health into his own hands, Udo began researching, and his discoveries led him to a passion for finding the answers to life’s big questions which would hopefully one day bring him and the world peace.
Today, Udo is an acclaimed speaker and author of many books, including the best-selling Fats That Heal Fats That Kill, which has sold over 250,000 copies. He teaches at events hosted by Tony Robbins and Deepak Chopra, has keynoted an international brain health conference, and has traveled to over 30 countries to conduct thousands of live presentations, media interviews, and staff trainings impacting more than 25,000,000 lives with his message on 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.
