How To Get Out Of A Health Rut with Udo Erasmus


“In life, there is no more important agenda than taking care of your body.” – Udo Erasmus


Co-Founder of Udo’s Choice and Author of several books including Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill, Choosing the Right Fats, and The Book on Total Sexy Health: The 8 Key Steps Designed by Nature, Udo Erasmus, joins me this week to discuss the power of being present, his own health transformation, the proper way to use healthy oils, and experience finding inner peace after a traumatic childhood.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • Easy hacks to get you out of a health rut.
  • Why so many of us are struggling to live in the current moment.
  • The power we have to shift our current state of being and the world we live in.
  • That you are the only person responsible for putting the time and work into taking care of your health.
  • Why he began investigating how to make healthier oils for mass consumption.
  • How to properly cook with healthy oils and why we should never fry with them.
  • Why psychedelics are door openers but not necessarily a quick fix during the inner work process.

Udo ErasmusHealing 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.



About Udo Erasmus

Udo ErasmusUdo 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.
