According to This Walkabout Emu Oil User, Magic is Real!

Walkabout_Emu_Oil_Sale

We recently received a rave review for Walkabout Emu Oil and wanted to share it with our readers.

Walkabout Emu Oil Testimonial – “Magic is Real!”

This testimonial is courtesy of one of our customers, John Giustra.

“My daughter, Jennifer Kozek, gave me 4 bottles of your Emu oil. I’ve used two bottles so far. I’m 73 with severe pain in my hips and arm, and most debilitating for me in the neck. After 10 days, I noticed a remarkable improvement in all areas. I’d been using traction for my neck, not needed now – well only used it once since the 10 day period. I have enough to get me through 2 months taking 6 pills a day. I believe I can then go to 4 pills a day. We will see. You can use any part of this or all of this in any ad you publish free of charge. My daughter was very impressed by you and I trust her. A US believer, magic is real! lol”

What is Emu Oil?

Emu oil is the nutrient dense fat reserved by emu before they go into torpor (it’s like hibernation) and before they sit on their eggs for three months prior to hatching. It is a life sustaining fat, considered a sacred food, that has been used by Aborigines for over 40,000 years!

Why is Walkabout Emu Oil Better?

Walkabout Emu Oil comes direct from Australia where the animals are free to roam and live a normal life, eating what emu in the wild eat. The farmers who work with Walkabout care for herds of genetically-unique emu, chosen because their oil is especially high in vitamin K2. There are many commercial uses for emu products including meat and leather, and for many farmers, the oil is a by-product. At Walkabout, the birds are bred for their high vitamin K oil.

Another reason we love Walkabout Emu oil is because of the minimal processing of the oil – it is never heat or chemically treated or pasteurized. Their motto is “Nothing is added to our oils and nothing is taken out. Our emu oil is assembled and balanced by nature.” This makes it extremely bioavailable, nutrient dense, and very good for us.

Health Benefits of Walkabout Emu Oil

Emu oil is recommended by the Weston A. Price Foundation because it’s a sacred food with a dense nutritional profile. Here are some of the many nutrients you’ll find in Emu Oil:

  • Omega-3
  • Omega-6
  • Omega-9
  • Vitamin K2
  • Vitamin D3
  • Vitamin E
  • CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)

Try Walkabout Emu Oil for yourself and see how it benefits you! It comes in liquid, capsules and topical forms for your convenience.

Why We Stopped Using Green Pasture Butter Oil for Vitamin K

Highest_Vitamin_K2_in_Emu_oil

High Vitamin Butter Oil has been a staple in the supplement market since the Wetzel family launched Green Pasture in 2000. Moreover, the Vitamin K-rich superfood has been hailed by Dr. Weston A. Price and his followers as a complement to cod liver oil since 1930. It is no wonder that Green Pasture Butter Oil, along with Green Pasture Fermented Cod Liver Oil has been one of our most popular products for many years. And when Rosita Real Foods Extra Virgin Cod Liver Oil hit the market, we quickly added it to our product line as an alternative to the Green Pasture line.

In 2016, Is High Vitamin Butter Oil Still the Best Source of Vitamin K2?

In November of 2015, Sally Morrell of the Weston A. Price Foundation sent samples of several known sources of Vitamin K2 to be tested by VitaK, an independent laboratory. The results surprised the entire industry–High Vitamin Butter Oil was not the best source of Vitamin K2…not by a long shot.

And the Winner is…Emu Oil!

When Walkabout Health Products debuted their flagship product in 2013, we knew there was something special about their unprocessed, untreated, unpasteurized Emu Oil. Once our customers started using it as a capsule supplement and a topical cream, the rave reviews poured in. That’s why we were thrilled to see our trusted Walkabout Emu Oil listed as the richest source of Vitamin K2 M-4–with more than 5 times the Vitamin K2 as Green Pastures Butter Oil!

 

Does That Mean that Green Pasture Butter Oil is Unnecessary?

Of course not! The results of the VitaK study revealed that Walkabout Emu Oil was a better source of Vitamin K2 than High Vitamin Butter Oil. However, Green Pasture’s Butter Oil has an array of health-boosting benefits that make it a great fit for certain situations.

  • Delivers a natural, organic source of Vitamin A, Vitamin E, & Vitamin K.
  • Includes natural CoQ enzymes
  • Promotes regularity and can help relieve constipation.
  • Provides an Antioxidant boost for maintaining overall good health.
  • Strengthens Teeth and Bones, preventing decay and breaks.
  • Moisturizes skin and balances natural oils to prevent breakouts.
  • Contains the Dr. Oz-recommended weight loss booster, Conjugated Linoleic Acid, (CLA).
  • Enhances absorption of digestive nutrients.

What’s in your body lotion? The Best Natural Skin Care Products

natural_skincareBy Ali Wetherbee

The skin is our body’s largest organ, accounting for about 8 pounds of the average adult. Because our skin is so porous, it absorbs nearly everything that comes in contact with it. That’s why natural skin care products are so critical to our health. Studies have found that skin absorbs more than 64% of chemical contaminants (up to 100% in sensitive areas such as the underarms) and 100% of chemical fragrances. More than half of skin care products contain chemical ingredients designed to enhance penetration, which means even more of these toxins are absorbed into our bloodstream.

Why Choose Natural Skin Care Products?

In one day, the average person is exposed to 126 different chemical ingredients via skin care products, including sulfates (including sodium lauryl sulfate), parabens, glycols, dioxin, dimethicone, PABA, formaldehyde, chemical sunscreens, diethanolamine, monoethanolamine, triethanolamine, triclosan, plus chemical dyes, pigments, and fragrances. A whopping 95% of personal care products contain pthalates, endocrine disruptors linked to developmental disorders and neurotoxicity as well as cancer. Even skin care products labeled “natural” often contain synthetic ingredients and toxins — one estimate found 35% of “natural” children’s products contained synthetic preservatives linked to health problems such as allergies, nervous system issues, and hormone disruption.

Many of these dangerous skin care ingredients are banned in other countries, but here in the U.S. we each have to actively work to eliminate these ingredients from our homes and our bodies. Switching over to natural skin care products that are safe and non-toxic can be a daunting process, but it is completely worth it to ensure that only the best natural and organic ingredients are absorbed into our bloodstreams! Check out these safe natural skin care products from Peaceful Planet.

GPBeautyBalmGreen Pasture Beauty Balm is made from nutrient-dense oils including high vitamin butter oil, fermented cod liver oil, and organic coconut oil.

The Natural Remedies Your Natural First Aid Kit Is Missing

Natural_First_Aid_Remedies

By Ali Wetherbee

So you have the basics — some bandages, gauze, tape, scissors, and a thermometer — but what are some natural remedies you can include in your natural first aid kit or medicine cabinet? What can you use to replace chemical-laden over-the-counter medicines and ointments from the drugstore? Below we have some of the best natural, herbal, and homeopathic remedies to help you build a natural first aid kit to be prepared for common injuries and ailments. Keep a small kit of essentials in your car, bag, or backpack to naturally treat minor injuries on the go. At home, consider creating a “healing basket” full of your favorite natural remedies, herbs, salves, teas, tinctures, and hot/cold packs or hot water bottles, so you’ll have everything on hand when anyone in your family becomes ill or injured.

Sovereign Silver First Aid Gel: A Natural Antibiotic

Sovereign_Silver_First_Aid_SpraySovereign Silver is the top-selling colloidal silver nationwide. Silver is a natural antibiotic, making this homeopathic First Aid Gel the perfect substitute for OTC antibiotic ointment, burn cream, and calamine lotion in your natural first aid kit. Use it on cuts, scrapes, burns (including sunburns), bruises, rashes, acne, and bug bites and stings, to prevent infection, soothe pain, and reduce swelling, redness, and inflammation. While you’re at it, grab a bottle of Sovereign Silver Fine Mist Spray, too, and keep it in your natural first aid kit for internal use in treating bacterial, viral, and parasitic infections.

Blue Ice Calm Balm: Natural Remedy for Muscle & Joint Pain, Colds & Congestion

Blue_Ice_Calm_BalmPetroleum-based vapor rub does not belong in a natural first aid kit. Toss the vapor rub and replace it with this all-natural Calm Balm from Green Pasture. Rub it into the chest to ease stuffiness and chest colds, or use it on sore muscles and joints for relief of aches and pains. Blue Ice Calm Balm is made from nutrient-rich oils (high vitamin butter oil, coconut oil, fermented cod liver oil) and menthol, camphor, and eucalyptus oils. Plus, you’ll get a dose of vitamins A, D, and K right through your skin!

Bentonite Clay: Draws Out Toxins

Bentonite_Liquid_ClayLiving Clay Bentonite Clay is an excellent product to have on hand in your natural first aid kit because it can treat a variety of ailments. If you’re suffering from nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or food poisoning, take some bentonite clay to speed recovery. Bentonite clay is able to bind to or absorb toxins and bacteria so that your body can eliminate them quickly. Bentonite clay can also be used for heartburn, acid reflux, bloating, and indigestion, as it has an alkalizing effect, reducing acidity in the body. Use bentonite clay externally on burns, cuts, stings, and bites (including bites from bugs, spiders, and snakes) to help draw out toxins. This is also a soothing, natural anti-itch relief for those with rashes, chicken pox, poison ivy, or skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and acne.

Natural Calm: Natural Relief for Constipation

Natural_Calm_PacksMagnesium is a gentle, natural laxative, and these Natural Calm packs will fit neatly into your natural first aid kit. Natural Calm magnesium is better absorbed than milk of magnesia, and much safer than OTC habit-forming laxatives. No one enjoys being all stopped up, so this is definitely one you’ll want to add to your natural first aid kit! Start with a small dose and work your way up until things are moving along well again. As a bonus, magnesium can also reduce stress, tension, and anxiety, helping you relax and sleep better, and it can ease muscle pain and stiffness.

Wedderspoon Manuka Honey: Natural Remedy for Infections

Wedderspoon_Manuka_HoneyHoney in your natural first aid kit? Yes! Wedderspoon Manuka Honey Active 16+ is a highly bioactive manuka honey with antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties.

Externally, you can apply a layer of manuka honey to wounds or skin infections or rashes to speed healing, prevent infection, and reduce scarring.

Anti-Inflammatory Emu Oil

By Ali Wetherbee

Emus, native to Australia, are flightless birds similar to small ostriches. They are a good source of high-protein, iron-rich red meat, with the added benefit of being low in fat and cholesterol. After the meat has been processed, the fat is used to make emu oil, an antioxidant-rich oil that can be used topically or internally to relieve a variety of health and inflammatory conditions. Aboriginal Australians have long used emu fat as part of their traditional healing practices.

Emu oil is used both internally and topically for a variety of purposes, including:Emu_Oil_web

  • Reducing pain and inflammation of conditions including gout, carpal tunnel, sciatica, hemorrhoids, diabetic neuropathy, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and earaches
  • Increasing omega 3, 6, & 9 essential fatty acid consumption
  • Improving cholesterol and triglycerides
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Weight loss
  • Cold & flu relief
  • Managing diabetes
  • Relief for sore muscles and joints, strains, sprains, and shin splints
  • Speed healing of cuts, burns, bruises, and bites and minimize scarring
  • Healing surgical wounds and radiation burns
  • Moisturize hair, nails, and skin
  • Ease skin conditions including diaper rash, eczema, psoriasis, and dandruff
  • Reverse sun damage including sunburns, wrinkles, and age spots

Numerous Testimonials

Those who have tried emu oil are amazed at the results. Former runners who were incapacitated by aches and pains found that emu oil relieved their pain and got them back on the running trails. People with arthritis report being able to resume normal activities including sports and gardening after starting emu oil use — and no longer need prescription pain killers. Adults and children with skin problems praise the oil for its ability to clear up previously untreatable rashes, eczema, and psoriasis. Doctors who have prescribed it to their patients have found remarkable results in improvement of a variety of inflammatory conditions. Here is an excerpt from an email written by one of many happy emu oil users:

I really want to thank you for marketing Walkabout Australian Emu Oil, it has really helped me.

I have had two major surgeries (back for ruptured and bulging discs and knee for a badly torn meniscus) over the last eight years and had lived with constant pain. I refused to take prescription pain pills and survived by taking daily doses of Back and Body aspirin just to get through the day (other over the counter pain killers did nothing for me). I tried physical therapy but the pain was too much.

A dear friend of mine sent me a bottle of your product and told me to just try it for a couple of weeks. Always the sceptic but willing to try anything I took the pills. As I told him, I didn’t know if it was coincidence or if they really worked but within ten days I could walk virtually pain free. Within a few more weeks my chronic back pain went away. I was astounded! I got several more bottles and took them religiously with no more pain.

One month ago, I ran out of my Emu oil right before a long trip with lots of walking and carrying heavy loads. I thought that I would be OK but one week in my knee started to give me some trouble. By the time I got home there was the old pain back and I had to revert to heavy doses of aspirin again. I am so glad to have the Emu Oil again and look forward to being as active as possible again.

Thank you for providing an outlet for this wonderful product. I am a firm believer in its claims.

Sincerely
Neal

Emu Oil Research

Studies on rodents have shown emu oil to be effective in reducing the inflammation associated with arthritis, ear infections, burns and wounds, and chemotherapy-induced mucositis (an inflammation of the digestive tract). In vitro analyses comparing emu oil to other avian oils have found emu oil to be strong in antioxidant properties and protect against oxidative damage. Although there isn’t yet much human research on emu oil, results of recent studies suggest that it may be beneficial for healing injuries, inflammation, and infections and treating digestive tract disorders, and may be a safer alternative than NSAID medications.

Walkabout Emu Oil

Walkabout Emu Oil is a rich source of…

  • Omega 3
  • Omega 6
  • Omega 9
  • Vitamin K2 (especially the isoform K2 MK-4, menatetrenone)
  • Vitamin D3
  • Vitamin E
  • CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)

Walkabout Emu Oil is derived from a line of emus especially high in vitamin K2, dubbed “Activator X” by Weston A. Price. Activator X works in synergy with vitamins A and D to support bone and tooth development and general health, and has been used to prevent and heal cavities. The healthiest, longest-living primitive peoples had diets rich in Activator X, as it helps the body absorb and utilize minerals. Walkabout Emu Oil is 100% natural, with nothing added or removed, and not pasteurized or chemically processed. This supplement will benefit the whole family for general health, and can be consumed in higher doses to remedy various ailments. The capsules can be taken as is, or for children, broken open and mixed into a favorite food such as yogurt. We also have a topical Walkabout Emu Oil for external use.
