I take the Flax Seed Oil every other day or so in a shake but was wondering if I'm not getting enough Omega 6's and this Udo's 3-6-9 Blend says it takes care of that dilemna.

Here is a link to it:  http://www.florahealth.com/flora/home/canada/products/R7980.asp

What do you all think?

thanks!

Sunflower oil, coconut oil, and evening primrose oil are all avoids for O secretors, so no, this is not the best choice for you.  

Research what foods have omega 6 oils in them to assess whether your diet is lacking.  If so, choose oils or nuts with omega 6 and add these to your diet.

BTW the majority of the western world get far more omega 6 than needed...
most people have a very bad omega 6 omega 3 balance.

Right you are, but it is listed in Typebase as an avoid for all Os, so I'm not sure what to think.  My personal experience with it has not been good.

I like Udo Erasmus' books and ideas, as well as the Flora company - but not this particular product.

Certain Blood-Types and Secretor Statuses do better with the seed powder or sprouts, rather than the oil itself.

Evening primrose oil is only a type O Tier 2 avoid.
Quoted from On The Diet: Heidi Merritt
http://www.dadamo.com/bloggers/otd/archives/00000169.htm
About evening primrose oil: the description lists it as a blood thinner and blood vessel dilator. That is the basis for the original "avoid for Os" status. If your girls have no heavy bleeding or broken capillary problems, then I'd say EPO is fine for them as part of their "female balancing" protocol -- but let them be aware of those potential effects of EPO on Os.

Quoted from On The Diet: Heidi Merritt
http://www.dadamo.com/bloggers/otd/archives/00000273.htm
Evening primrose oil has been found to be OK for all types, and is listed as such in the BTD Complete Blood Type Encyclopedia under the "female balancing" protocols. The earlier caution about it has proven unnecessary, so go ahead with it if it works for you!

In Typebase 4 the reason listed for the avoid status is "Enhances effect of other food toxins", not blood thinning.  I'm just unclear what is the best info at this point - Type base 4 is newer, but there are several sources saying that it is good for Female Balancing.

It was due to this confusion that I used it anyway when it was recommended to me, but it had detrimental effects on my cycle, so my clinician and I decided to stop using it.

This is exactly what I was thinking.  Most of the western world needs to supplement or eat more Omega 3's.

I'd say just based on my own experience as an O secretor, go for the omega 3s and don't worry too much about omega 6. You should get plenty of the latter in the meat you're eating. Not sure about omega 9, but I believe it is also present in flaxseed oil. You might also try a modest amount of fish oil caps taken once or twice a week.

To mime oil intake with season swings evening primrose oil(EPO) suits SPRING; extra  virgin olive oil and almond oils + omega-3 flax and chia seed, and walnut oils for alfa linolenic acid .... SUMMER; all omega-3 as flax /chia + fish/seal oil .... AUTUMN; all omega-3 fish/seal oils + (if very cold) cod liver oil ... WINTER.  This is only for the northern hemisphere ... omega-3's are for the cold. EPO mimes the oil in human breast milk with GLA.

Of note: ghee is likely best in spring-summer-fall to support microbe flora.
            coconut oils are likely best in tropical locals
            hemp oil is likely the ideal summer-fall oil for temperate-zone dwellers

for nonnies it is likely best to intake all oils in their 'complexed' form - as food or with lecithin

Evening primrose oil (EPO), contain gamma
linolenic acid (GLA), a fatty acid that the
body converts to a hormone-like substance
called prostaglandin E1 (PGE1). PGE1 has
anti-inflammatory properties and may also act
as a blood thinner and blood vessel dilator.
In type A and Ab's this is a functional
supplement but in O's it's problematic due to
the risk of hemorrhagic strokes.

Omega 9 is highly present in olive oil.
