Emu Oil: Sacred Healing Food Revealed

The Australian Aborigines are one of the most ancient and still living primitive societies on the planet. For eons they have utilized traditional health practices and retained their robust health. The Aborigines prized emu fat as one of their “sacred foods” for health and healing and have long incorporated it into their mythical “dreamtime” spirituality. Because the emu shares the inhospitable Australian Outback environment with the Aborigines and manages to survive well on only its fat reserves, the fat was revered as a precious food and medicine by the traditional culture. Weston A. Price, the famous dentist and nutritionist of the 20th century who studied the Australian Aborigines as well as other indigenous groups, proclaimed their diets to be rich in fat soluble vitamins and activators which accounted for their low incidence of chronic health problems as compared with people in the developed world. Perhaps the time has come to bring a little “sacred” healing oil into our own lives?

Walkabout Emu Oil

Emus are large birds, native to Australia and similar looking to Ostriches. They cannot fly, but they can do something perhaps even more amazing!  They can go without food, essentially fasting, for months at a time usually while sitting on their nest. In order to endure this long period of nutritional deprivation, emus have an ability to store nutrient dense fat in a special fat pocket on their back. Until recently, Emus living in the wild had higher quality oil than those raised commercially. Now Walkabout has been able to replicate this potent wild emu oil by raising emus on Australian farms using their natural habitats and food sources. Raised as genetically distinct groups with no crossbreeding, Walkabout emus are specific genotypes ensuring the highest quality oil. Walkbout Emu Oil is guaranteed to meet strict standards for purity and quality. It is registered with the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), which oversees the production of natural supplements. Walkabout imports the Aborigine’s life-sustaining emu oil from Australia to treat your myriad of health and beauty needs.

Emu Oil can be taken orallyas  liquid or in capsules or applied topically and allowed to penetrate the skin with it’s healing qualities.

Emu Essentials

Emu oil is a whole food, not a manufactured vitamin compound. As such the miraculous benefits come from the synergy of nutrients found in precious combination in the oil. Nevertheless, it is possible to test for and quantify some of the components in order to better understand the harmony of vital healing agents. Walkabout Emu Oil has consistently shown to be higher in nutrients compared to other brands due to their free-range farming and feeding practices.

  • Omegas 3, 6, and 9: essential fatty acids necessary for growth, life energy, and skin regeneration.
  • Vitamin K2: the “Activator X” vitamin identified by Dr. Weston A. Price as potentiating many other nutrients. Recently, Sally Fallon of the Westin A Price Foundation tested many popular whole food oil supplements and Walkabout Emu Oil came out on top for having more vitamin K2 than the rest, sometimes 10 times as much!
  • Vitamin D3: critical vitamin for immunity, maintaining healthy bones, cognitive ability, and preventing multiple diseases.
  • Vitamin E: antioxidant for immunity, healthy skin and eyes, and physical performance
  • Vitamin A: antioxidant that repairs skin and provides antiseptic abilities.
  • CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid): decreases muscle and joint pain as well as assisting in fat metabolism and healthy weight maintenance.
  • Sapogens: skin softening agents

Walkabout Emu Oil is refined by combining the best of traditional practices with modern day science. The unadulterated oil assures the best absorption and assimilation possible.

Emu oil is a traditional, nutrient dense, life sustaining food carried with them on this quest. Its pure and unadulterated power is now available to help transform your life as well.

  1. I have extreme inflammation in my gut. A Mayo Clinic surgeon said he’s only seen one person’s CT scan with more. I have two diseases, non-Hodgkin’s follicular lymphoma stage IV and Sclerosing mesenteritis. I need to reduce inflammation. Any ideas?

    • I’m no doctor, but I’ll let you know what I think. Emu Oil is excellent for reducing inflammation as well as turmeric supplements https://www.nourishingworld.com/superpure-turmeric/ . Processed white sugar (beet sugar and cane sugar) and wheat flour often contribute to inflammation and disease. Eliminating those from your diet and eating real, unprocessed food has done wonders for many people suffering from many different diseases. My new favorite sugar alternative is Pur Monk powdered monk fruit simply because it is very low carb, also. But, when I first switched to a Paleo diet, I loved coconut sugar, honey and maple syrup – still do! We have lots of recipes on our blog that have no sugar or flour, but you can look up any Paleo or Primal recipe and there won’t be flour or sugar. I have met people who reversed severe diseases with drastic diet changes. It isn’t easy and it is time consuming at first, but when you get the hang of it, it gets easier. And the benefits far outweigh the hassle of cooking real food. Give it a try and see if you feel better.

    • Look into the carnivore diet, eating lightly cooked grass-fed beef, lamb, goat and raw pasture-raised eggs. (Duck,Chicken,Quail)

      Emu oil would be the only supplement I would use. Make sure daily to try and get as much sunlight exposure on your bodies surface as possible.

      Dry fasting is also highly beneficial. Try 12hrs and build from there, up to 72hrs at a time.

      Cutting down on computer and cell phone usage would also help reduce EMF and blue light exposure. Turn off your router at night Find out if you have a smart meter and try to always stay away from it. Grounding/earthing 20 minutes daily, barefoot on grass,helps greatly.

      May you have healing!

  2. I am trying to decide between a vitamin K and E supplement and emu oil. Can anyone tell me how much mcg of K and E are in each serving?

    • Hi Brian! Walkabout and other healthy oil supplement companies tend to not publish the amounts of specific nutrients for a few reasons. The most important being that they want people to take them for the plethora of nutrients working synergistically in a symbiotic relationship with one another. You get much more than just two nutrients and they believe the whole is significantly more than the sum of it’s parts.
      That being said, Sally Fallon of the Westin A. Price Foundation did measure the vitamin K content in Walkabout Emu Oil, as well as a variety of other real food sources of vitamin K. We wrote a blog on this and show the chart of their findings. It is called “Why We Stopped Using Green Pasture Butter Oil For Vitamin K”. I don’t believe anyone has done a test like this for the vitamin E content in Walkabout Emu Oil. If they have, please let us know. 😉

      I hope this helps,


  3. Thank you for this wonderful article! I will buy the Walkabout Emu Oil and add it to my wellness arsenal. I’m in need of more vitamin K.
