Today, I am grateful to have here with me, Dr. Jeff Matheson,
co-founder of an all-natural migraine and headache centre, which
promotes a non-narcotic approach to pain and headache management.
Plus, Dr. Jeff Matheson is the co-founder and medical director of
Pure Life Science.
Dr. Jeff Matheson successfully practiced medicine in emergency
departments across Canada and internationally, from Ontario,
Newfoundland, and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. He later
was appointed Medical Director of Med-EmergInc in 1998, a company
dedicated to staffing underserved hospitals in Canada.
Dr. Matheson has traveled extensively throughout Europe, the
Middle East, Africa, and South East Asia and well as Oceania.
According to Dr. Matheson, “traveling is the best education!” Dr.
Matheson is an enthusiastic believer, as well as being immersed in
other cultures. Similarly, if one does not listen to patients, one
won’t hear what is necessary to understand the patient’s problem,
i.e., the patient’s “culture.”
It is with this ability to listen and empathize with the
patients that Dr. Matheson allows an accurate diagnosis and develop
sustainable solutions, optimizing health, and patient outcomes. If
a solution cannot be determined, resources will be dedicated,
through the involvement of alternative care specialists,
ascertaining the best possible treatment for the patient by trying
to treat causes, not just manage symptoms.
In this episode, Dr. Matheson opens up the show discussing his
introduction to the ketogenic diet and how exactly quality fats
will promote health. Dr. Matheson dives deep into the relationship
between the cell membrane and our DNA. Plus, he speaks about the
troubles of fish oil and why we should never take the supplement.
Stay tuned to hear Dr. Matheson reveal other damaging fats for our
bodies and all about his Pure Form Omegas.

[05:45] About Dr. Matheson
- Matheson realized there was no standardization for pain
management in Canada. He created a standardization; now, all pain
clinics need to use his system.
- Matheson had all sorts of pain himself. After trying a specific
diet, all of the pain melted away. Then, he started prescribing the
diet to his patients, who had similar results.
- Now, Dr. Matheson wants to introduce people to the proper fats
for our bodies. Bad fats can harm you just as much as carbohydrates
[11:10] How Quality Fats Promote Health
- The structure of the cell is based on fat. The cell membrane is
a fatty membrane. If you do not have a membrane, then you do not
have a cell. If we are putting bad fats in our bodies, then we will
have a weak cell membrane.
- How does the cell membrane interact with the rest of the cell?
The mitochondria are also made up of fats – it is loaded with the
membrane. Unhealthy cell membranes will result in lethargy.
[13:40] Relationship Between the Cell Membrane and our
- 25% - 33% of your cell membrane is made up of omega-6.
- 40% of your mitochondria membrane is made up of omega-6.
- 100% of your cardiolipin is made up of omega-6. When you keep
DNA under repair, you need proper omega-6.
- Our brains take 20% of our metabolic energy.
- If our mitochondria have bad fats in them, it can’t produce the
energy that the nucleus requires to stay healthy. We are being
damaged by radiation, so it requires a lot of energy to keep it
repaired. If we can’t keep it repaired, we will run into mutations
and possibly cancers.
[16:20] What’s the Issue with Fish Oil?
- Fish oil became popular when researchers found out Inuit people
had low rates of heart disease. They assumed their pristine health
was because of eating so much fish. However, the Inuit people
didn’t eat that much fish. Their diets consisted mostly of seal,
whale, and blubber.
- Most fish oil studies are not very well done
- Fish oils are way too unstable for humans to be consuming. It
is taxing our ability to keep the oil from oxidizing. A majority of
the fish oil on the shelves are already oxidized – there is no way
that can be healthy for you.
- It turns out that you only need 4.3 milligrams of DHA a day for
a healthy brain.
- Matheson is amazed at how many punches the human body can take
and still function.
[22:10] How to Get DHA Without Fish Oil
- Most people get enough DHA.
- DHA can hang around the brain for about 18 months. There isn’t
a significant turnover, and we do not need tons of it.
- You have to have the right fats to make DHA in the first
[23:00] Where Does the Fish Oil End Up?
- The fish oil will get broken down. The body will recognize it
as a toxin.
- Most of the fish oil is artificial, and the body cannot even
recognize its chemical makeup.
- You can decrease the efficiency of mitochondria by introducing
[28:30] The Most Pristine Fish Oil in the
- Your body can get rid of the fish oil pretty fast.
- If you are on fish oil for a month, do you feel any better on
- If you feel good on the fish oil, then something positive is
- Fish oil can have a cortisol effect at first. However, it is
not a long-term or healthy effect.
[36:40] Damaging Fats
- Plant oils that are processed and rancid olive oils.
- When you oxidize an oil, it starts to smell bad. So, the
manufactures deodorize the oil. Now, the oil cannot take oxygen.
Putting that oil in your cell membrane will result in the Warburg
Effect. If you decrease the oxygen in your cells, then they will
- 60% of us will get cancer in our lifetime. In the 1900s, it was
[43:30] About Pure Form Omegas
- Pure Form is all organized and cold-pressed under a blanket of
nitrogen. The oil has not touched oxygen, and every capsule has a
bubble in it.
- We used to eat things straight from the ground. Now, we don’t
have a choice anymore.
- People will feel the difference, and they will feel it
AND MUCH MORE!
