Advice from a Pioneer in the Health & Wellness Space:


Udo Erasmus was born to a family of 6 on a 'confiscated' farm during World War II in Europe where his family lost everything twice. Also, he was a war refugee--fleeing from the fire power of the Communists and Allies alike. Consequently, fear, anxiety and terror were constant companions. He lived without electricity, running water, radio or TV. Ultimately, it took six years after the war ended and then finally Udo's family was able to emigrate to British Columbia, Canada

After arriving in Canada, Udo would go on to combine higher education with his self-taught knowledge and life experience. Furthermore, he took the trauma of his early life and transformed it into a gift. A gift that resulted in his life work and purpose.

After a personal health crisis of pesticide poisoning in the 80s. With allopathic medicine unable to help him, Udo began studying medical research journals. Also, Udos’ background in biological sciences, biochemistry, genetics and psychology was pivotal in his discovering the benefits and fragile nature of healthy fats/oils including Omega 3’s. He made predictions that later were proven to be true.


Healthy Fats/Oil Industry:


Udo became super-inspired and found the solution. Ultimately, the result was Udo inventing the machinery to first bring FlaxSeed Oil to the market and create the current healthy fats/oil industry.

After a full recovery using healthy oils, he also went on to write the best-selling classic book, Fats That Heal Fats that Kill to share his new found knowledge with the world. In addition, he founded UDO’s CHOICE oils that are still sold in health food markets around the world and was responsible for the current healthy fats/oils industry.
