About the Author
Udo published his best-seller Fats That Heal Fats That Kill in 1993, which became recognized as the bible on fats. To set new standards for food oils and other health-supporting consumer products, Udo partnered with Flora Manufacturing and Distributing Ltd. in 1994 to create the Udo's Choice® health product line which includes EFA-rich oil blends and other blends of supplements (see udoschoice.com.
In 2005, Udo was inducted into the Canadian Health Food's Association Hall of Fame for his tireless efforts educating the public about the difference between good oils and bad oils and for pioneering higher production standards of unrefined flax and other polyunsaturated fat-rich oils.
Other titles include Choosing the Right Fats (2001)and Omega-3 Cuisine (2008), co-authored with vegan chef Alan Roettinge. Udo resides in Vancouver, B.C., and is currently working on his latest books, including two on fats and oils, due out in 2017.

Through Erasmus' well exacuted details of the biological and functional processes of the omega-3s and the many ways the body utilizes it, including the activation of prostaglandins-2-the master regulator of fatty acid metabolism-our best efforts is to try to incorporate them into the diet daily. Taking a naturopathic approach, Dr. Erasmus sees the use of fresh seeds and their oil derivatives as healers of the many ailments now griping the modern American. Since this book was written and published in the 80's, the lessons are still relevant today and I believe deficiencies are far worse well into the 21st century.
What I enjoyed most from reading is that Erusmus' persuasion could be felt through his passion of this subject and is genuinely believable. He provides us with the real natural prescription to the many diseases and degenerative conditions, which is through natural dieting. True healers of modern illnesses and diseases are not pharmaceutical drugs, but is, through time, making the effort to consume organic whole foods.
Unlike many dozens of other tomes in this enormous field, it is filled with truth, and Udo's prescriptions actually work.While not an easy read,this book is well worth the effort expended to understand it, even at its most basic and practicable level.
The Omega 3-6-9 oil formula [flax seed versus fish oil based], whether Udo's brand, Flora brand, or other comparable brands, is the all around wonder supplement for health. Some results, such as healthy and moist skin [the body's largest organ], can be seen immediately, and others, such as overall vitality and energy, are noticeable in days or weeks.
I have even used it on a 12 year old dog with liver, thyroid, and other health issues with great success. She is dancing around with restored energy and appetite within a few weeks, after having had minimal success with expensive veterinary care for several months.
Omega oil, in my case either Flora or Udo's, is undoubtedly the single most effective supplement Iof 7] that I take, with no close second!
I highly recommend Udo's book, his originally discovered formula, and I highly commend Udo Erasmus to you.

As a holistic veterinarian, I have long advocated home cooked meals for dogs and cats. Processed pet foods, like the processed foods that people eat, are deficient in essential fatty acids--destroyed by heat and exposure to light and oxygen. These same essential fatty acids should also be added to the diets of our pets.
