Drugs that rob you of your EFA:

Cholestyramine, Colestipol, Orlistat, or Prolonged use of Mineral Oils


Disclaimer: EFA can interact/compound the effects with blood thinner such as but not limited to warfarin, dabigratran, pletal, plavix, aspirin.  Consult your physician, pharmacist or coumadin clinic before starting.


Do you suffer from any of the following:

Acne AUDIO or Ance VIDEO Dementia Low Libido
ALS Dermatitis Low Sperm Count
Alopecia/Loss of Hair Extended Menopause AUDIO Miscarriage
Alzhiemer’s Dementia AUDIO Eczema Multiple Sclerosis
Asthma AUDIO Fibromyalgia AUDIO Muscular Dystrophy AUDIO
Blood Clots Fried Food Cravings PMS/cramps
Brittle Hair Gallstones Psoriasis
Cholesterol & Heart Disease AUDIO Growth Retardation Kidney Dysfunction AUDIO
Cracked Heels/Dry Skin Infertility Split Cuticles/Heals

Then you probably have an Essential Fatty & Cholesterol Deficiency and will need EXTRA Omega-3, 6, & 9 and EXTRA Selenium supplementation.



There is a difference between [Good Oils = Essential Fats] vs [Bad Oils = Non-essential] vs [Other Oils = Semi-essential, either made by our body or can be used to bodies advantage].
Believe it, Fat’s are the PREFERRED energy source for all cell in the body, especially fast moving organs like the heart!!!  Except for the Brain and the RBC, Mitochondria burn fat’s Slowly!!  As oppose to carbohydrates or sugars which the mitochondria burn  FAST and VERY FAST, respectively. 

1999 Dead Doctor Don’t Lie by Dr. Joel Wallach and Dr. Ma Lan: “The primary food source of lipids are butter, animal fat, nuts, seeds, whole grain, olives, avocados, eggs yolks.”

So you DO need a daily dose of OILS to maintain health.  Approximately, ~ 30% of dietary calories should be from fats.  With AT LEAST 3% to be ESSENTIAL FATTY ACID’S (EFA) also known as Omega Fatty Acid’s OR “GOOD OILS”.

Lets do the math. NOTE: (every 1gram fat produces 9 kcal energy)
2000 kcal/day X 3% = 60 kcal/day EFA divided by 9  = 6.67 GRAM/DAY EFA needed in diet
1500 Kcal/day X 3% = 45 kcal/day EFA divided by 9 = 5 GRAM/DAY EFA needed in diet
1200 kcal/day X 3% = 36 kcal/day EFA divided by 9 = 4 GRAM/DAY EFA needed in diet…etc.  This is baseline.  Will need more if deficient (i.e. having any sx mentioned above).

Because, I am here to tell you, EFA = Good Oils, directly make our bodies prostaglandins (a.k.a hormone-like regulators) and eiconsinoids (a.k.a. master hormones)!

1999 Dead Doctors Don’t Lie by Dr Joel Wallach and Dr. Ma Lan: “Essential fatty acids cannot be manufactured by the body.  The essential fatty acid have important roles in fat transport and metabolism and in maintaining the function and integrity of cellular membranes.  The essential fatty acid are the building blocks and raw materials for a group of hormones like compounds including prostaglandins, thromboxanes, prostacycylines, that participle in the regulation of blood pressure, heart rate, vascular dilation, blood clotting, lipolysis, then central nervous system, and airway dilation.  They function in fat transport and metabolism, and maintaining the integrity of cell walls.  Serum cholesterol can be lowered by the consumption of EFA.”

1993 Fats the Heal Fats that Kill by Udo Erasmus There are only two ESSENTIAL Fatty Acids (EFA).  The rest either come from these two or can be made by our bodies. Or you don’t need.
Essential: Can NOT Be Synthesized by Humans
Omega-3 Fatty Acid
Omega-6 Fatty Acid
α-Linolenic acid or ALA (18:3) Linoleic acid or LA (18:2)
Flax seed, Hemp seed, Canola, Soy Bean, Walnuts, Green Leafy Vegetables Safflower, Sunflower

Semi-Essential: Can Be Synthesized from ALA and LA

eicosapentaenoic acid or EPA (20:5)
gamma-linolenic acidor GLA (18:3)Borage (20%), Black Currant Seed (15%), Evening Primrose (6%)
docosahexaenoic acid or DHA (22:6) dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid or DGLA (20:3)
 Fatty Fish arachidonic acid or AA (20:4)
Semi-Essential: Can Be Synthesized by Humans
Omega-9 Fatty Acids
Oleic Acid or OA
Mediterranean Oils, especially OLIVE, Almond, Avocado, Peanut, Cashew, Filberts, Macadamia

Semi-Essential: Body will convert to other Monounsaturated fats.

Omega-7 Fatty Acids
Palmitoleic Acid or POA
Tropical Oils, especially coconut and palm kernel oil.


Stearic Acid or SA

Palmitic Acid or PA

Butyric Acid or BA

Arachidic Acid
(not arachidoic acid)

Beef, Mutton, Pork, Cocoa Butter, Shea Nut Butter

Tropical Oils, coconut, palm, palm kernel



The OPTIMAL ratio of omega 6:3 should be no more than 4:1.  Both fats complete for the same enzymes so excessive omega-6 fats interfere with the health benefits of the omega-3 fats.

Best /Anti-Inflammatory

Slightly Inflammatory

Really Bad/Inflammatory

Flax Seed 1:4 Macadamia Nut 6:1 Pistachio 37:1

Did you know that fats/EFA’s are absorbed in Colon?

So if you have Crohn’s, IBS, or gallbladder removal then you are going to have a malabsorption of fats  symptoms include burping up EFAs.

Treatment Plan:

First must treat and/or fix and/or rule out fatty nutrient mal-absorption issue!

How To Test if you have a fat mal-absorption issue by eating a bolus of oil (either olive oil or EFA or fatty fish).  if you have any sx of bloating, abdominal cramping or discomfort, nausea, fatty stools, then you know you have a fat mal-absorption issue, especially if history of gallbladder removal, hysterectomy, crohn’s or IBS or taking Cholestyramine, Colestipol, Orlistat, or Prolonged use of Mineral Oils which rob your of EFAs.

Second must treat fatty malabsorption by taking lipase or pancreatin (fatty digestive enzyme), lecithin, bile salts and apple cider vinegar (help absorb fats), and take your fatty nutrients in smaller doses with protein, water and probiotics (helps improve absorb of fats)

Third must supplement, eat or get all fatty nutrients 1) Vitamin D; easily obtained from 15 min in direct sun daily 2) Vitamin E as mixed tocopherols, @ 400 units per daily; take with OPC Selenium @ 300 mcg per day for maximal effect.  3) Vitamin A; especially, from animal product, single most important vitamin for skin @ 20,000 units per day ORALLY; also good for liver, eyes, bones, digestive health (can be use topically); *beta-carotene (from plants) is a precursor to vitamin A via thyroid metabolism; *lutein is a carotene type product (from plants); >yellow, orange, red have lots of vitamin A; >seaweed have lots of Vitamin A; >VISION-FX from Youngevity; ****must take with zinc to absorb vitamin A**** 4) Vitamin K, from sun or best as Vitamin K2 200 mcg per day ORALLY AND 5) EFA; especially Omega 3, 6, & 9 all together!!!

Fourth make sure taking collateral nutrients required for conversion of EFA into prostaglandins, eiconsinoids, etc which include Vitamins B3 (Niacin), B6 (Pyridoxine), and C and the minerals Magnesium (as 1000 mg of Aspartate, Glycinate, or Malate) and Zinc (as 50 mcg of Picolinate daily)


1993 Fats the Heal Fats that Kill by Udo Erasmus (paraphrasing and “exact”)

CAUTION: All oils when exposed to oxygen turn into a carcinogen.  Refrigeration will retard the process but will not eradicate it. 


Remove all oils – cooking and salad dressing – from you kitchen and your diet that are open and old!

CAUTION: Most oils when exposed to heat (temp > 150 degree) will also turn into a carcinogen.  They say there are a few oils that can be used for cooking but olive oil is not one of them!!!  While no oil can safely be used for frying, solid oils like COCONUT OIL or BUTTER are more stable and can be used iF you need a COOKING oils.

Remove fried foods from your diet!

ACTUALLY: Butter is Better than any oils if you have to fry.  “Butter is a natural fat, not good, not bad.  Useful for frying and easy to digest.  But not necessary and in excess, dangerous.”  (Did you know butter is just chilled and whipped heavy cream with a pitch of salt.  Takes 5 minutes to make fresh.)

NOTE: As for margarine, it’s name come from a thin ‘margin’ between considering it a plastic (non-natural, chemically altered fat) and a food.  Don’t eat, not healthy.  Do not fry, unsuitable for frying.

CAUTION: Unless you are using fresh pressed, “VIRGIN”, unrefined (“crude”) oils, you are ingesting toxins.  “ALL oils found in the supermarket, corner groceries, and conveniences stores are fully refined and deodorized.  Don’t expect to find oils labeled “non-virgin” or “refined”.  If an oil is NOT labeled “UNREFINED”, they ARE refined, deodorized oils which have sufficient nutrient losses and molecular changes that negatively affect human health”.
“THE EXCEPTION: VIRGIN OLIVE OILs are THE ONLY MASS market oil taht have not been heated above 150 degrees C.” Note: OLIVE OILS contains ~0.6% omega-3, ~10% omega-6 (making them a poor source of EFAs and do not account for the health benefits of olive oil).  OLIVE OILS also contain ~75% omega-9 and ~2% omega-7 which are stable – important in Mediterranean climates before refrigeration – accounting for part of olive oils prominence throughout history.  Omega-9 and omega-7 neither raise nor lower blood cholesterol – therefore do not account  for olive oils health effects.  OLIVE OILS contains ~10% Palmitic Acid (unsaturated/bad) – will raise cholesterol (obviously this does not account for the protective nature of olive oil) and ~2% Stearic Acid (unsaturated/bad)- will neither raise nor lower cholesterol.  “ALTHOUGH ALL OF ITS FATTY ACIDS ARE COMMON TO ALL OILS AND ARE USED BY OUR BODY IN CELL MEMBRANES STRUCTURES AND AS FUEL, THE BENEFICIAL EFFECTS OF OLIVE OIL CANNOT BE ASCRIBED TO ITS FATTY ACID PROFILE.  OLIVE OIL contains little lecithin (a.k.a phospholipid) which is good for health – still does not explain olive oils health benefits.  IT IS THE MINOR COMPONENTS IN OLIVE OIL THAT BRING ABOUT THE HEALTH BENEFICIAL EFFECTS.
   * Beta-sitosterol lower high cholesterol levels
   *Triterpenic Acids have a healings and anti-inflammatory effect.
   *Caffeic and Gallic Acids stimulate the flow of bile.
   *Gallic Acid also inhibits lactic dehydrogenase activity in the liver (a sign of live malfunction)
   *Phenolic compounds protect against peroxidation of fatty acids and cholesterol.
   *2-phenylethanol (present in many unrefined oils) stimulate the production of fat-digesting enzymes in the pancreas
   *triterpenic acids (oleanolic and maslinic – found only in olive oil) also stimulate these pancreatic enzymes.
   *cycloartenol, stored in the liver, lowers the amount of circulating cholesterol and increases bile excretion (in studies done with rats).
   *A combination of 2-phenylethanol and triterpenic acid slows down cholesterol digestion (cholesterol ester hydrolysis) and decreases cholesterol absorbption from foods.  SUMMARY: OLIVE OIL is a poor source of EFA’s but an exceptional source of stable monounsaturated fatty acids and a rich source of unique minor components with health value.  IF OUR EFA REQUIREMENTS HAVE BEEN MET, OLIVE OIL IS EXCELLENT FOR IMPROVING AND MAINTAINING HEALTH BECAUSE OF ITS NATURAL MINOR COMPONENTS.”


Cholesterol Drug Alert

if you have to take cholesterol lowering medications, because maybe you have already experienced an acute heart attack or had a stroke, then you must supplement with coenzyme q10!   HMG CoA Reductatase Inhibitors, aka drugs that end in -statin, will rob you of a NON-essential raw nutrient known as Coenzyme Q10 from you body to the point that it will become a deplete resource and manifest troublesome symptoms, including: fatigue, muscle pain.

Must Supplement with coenyzme q10 while on -statins!
