Essential Fatty Acids-The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

Biomega3Ola!

No, not hello, but O for oil, L for low and A for acid.

Put that with Can and we have Canola, Canada Low Erucic Acid Rape (LEAR). Canola sure sounds better than rapeseed oil.

The oil from the rapeseed is the most toxic of all food oil plants. It is part of the mustard family, from which came mustard gas as a chemical warfare agent and blistered the lungs of many World War One soldiers. Canola oil contains large amounts of isothiocyanates, cyanide. It is an industrial oil used as a lubricant, synthetic rubber base and as an illuminant for the slick color pages in magazines.

Rapeseed oil was in widespread use in England and Europe between 1986 and 1991 till it was thrown out because of cows, pigs and sheep going blind, lost their minds and attacked people; they had to be SHOT!!! Remember Mad Cow; right. It wasn’t scrapie, it was canola oil :(.

It does not belong in the human body.

Here son, take this, it’s good for you! Yuk Dad, it tastes awful. Yes son, but it’s good for you.

Remember that? It was CLO or cod liver oil. Who sold my Dad on that? Grandpa did. Our Van Dueck ancestry has been traced back 8 generations to the areas of the North Sea. My metabolic profile is a parasympathetic fast. If we divide the earth latitudinally from zero at the equator to 10 at the north pole, I’m a 9! I need the ocean fish fats and the animal and land ones as well.

50 years later I understand what my Grandpa was doing. And I finally found a way to explain it to myself and patients. Fish oils, specifically the deep ones or Omega 3’s act like… believe it or not…ANTIFREEZE. Think about it for a sec, those fish live in frigid water, yet thrive. Some toads can freeze and thaw months later. That’s what antifreeze does. Compare it to the radiator in your vehicle; same thing. It keeps the motor hot in freezing temps and cold in hot temps. The oils in our body keep our blood and lymph moving, but the omega 3’s ‘radiate’ our temp control thermostat, which by the way is in the brainstem. So neck problems plus antifreeze issues can cause temperature fluctuations.

So check your antifreeze levels by contacting (Contact Reflex Analysis) the oil and salt (dehydration ) reflexes. Trace a finger along your collarbones towards the breast bone. You will come to a notch and a bump. Press hard down into these notches. If tender, it could be an indicator of deficiency of oil and/or salt. 50% of our brain and nerves are DHA or Omega 3. The brain is essentially a glob of cholesterol in a pool of salt water. When doctors convinced the food industry to restrict salt and fat; they made a powerful monetary move to keep us sick. No salt, no fat equals a shrinking brain, aka dementia, alzheimers, MS etc. Add some canola or other irradiated trans fats and voila MadHuman Disease.

*Just a note…get good salt like Grey Salt, Celtic Salt, Himalayan etc.

I was born in Vancouver and love seafood. I have startled many of my fishing buddies by eating eyes, roe and raw liver at the dock! But I can get my 3’s easily from our product company, Biotics, Omega 111 liquid. It has a pleasant lemon flavour to it. No longer is it YUK Dad.

You can’t lose fat unless you eat fat, but the right fat. If your cholesterol is above normal, eat Omega 3 liquid 2 grams/day if slightly elevated and up to 4 gm/s day if severe. If you have arthritic conditions you will need 5 or even more/day. Contact us for more information.
