Anti-Inflammatory Emu Oil

By Ali Wetherbee

Psst... Have you heard about Emu Oil? Follow me on a Walkabout to learn more!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:

  • 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

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 species 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. Their emus are bred for the high vitamin K oil – not for meat or other purpose. This doesn’t mean it is wasted, but the Activator X rich oil is the main product, not a by-product like with other emu oils.  This supplement will benefit the whole family for general health, and can be consumed in higher doses to remedy various ailments. And Walkabout Emu Oil comes in three convenient forms, liquid and capsules for internal use or topical liquid for external use.

Recommendations from Dr. Oz Part 3: Nature's Remedies

Dr.Oz_natural_remediesBy Ali Wetherbee

Most of us have aches and pains and or various ailments, but prescription pharmaceuticals or over-the-counter drugs can have serious short and long-term side effects. In Part 3 of our Dr. Oz series, we’re giving you the rundown of Dr. Oz’s natural remedies for pain, heartburn, IBS, and more. If you missed Part 1 or Part 2, be sure to go back and take a look at our burnout busters and weight loss advice.

Probiotics for Pain Relief

More than 100 million Americans live with chronic pain, including back, neck, and facial pain, arthritis, and severe headaches or migraines. Persistent, unmanaged pain can lead to lost productivity, poor sleep, low energy, disability, depression, poor physical health, and an overall lack of enjoyment of life. Probiotics may help those with chronic pain by reducing inflammation, according to a recent study on patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Dr. Oz recommends 1 probiotic capsule a day for improved pain management. Mercola Complete Probiotics contains 10 strains of beneficial bacteria, has no artificial ingredients, and is free of dairy, gluten, corn, and soy. Other pain relief advice from Dr. Oz includes arnica gel, which has been found to be as effective as ibuprofen in relieving pain, and ice massage. Ice massage involves freezing ice in a paper cup and then wrapping it in a towel and massaging the painful area, reducing swelling and encouraging the removal of toxins from the area. Dr. Oz also recommends those with chronic pain take a daily omega 3 supplement to reduce inflammation. Green Pastures Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil is an excellent source of omega 3, is raw and all natural, and comes in a variety of flavors. It’s also available in unflavored or orange-flavored capsules.

Turmeric for IBS

If you have pain and digestive issues that come and go — but never really go away — you could have irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS. IBS symptoms include diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating, and abdominal pain. Attacks can be triggered by certain foods or stress and anxiety. Turmeric has been used to treat intestinal issues in Chinese and Indian medicine for thousands of years, and recent studies have shown it to reduce symptoms of IBS by 50%. The curcumin in turmeric reduces inflammation and abnormal contractions of the bowel muscles. Dr. Oz recommends 60mg, 3 times a day, taken before meals. Mercola Curcumin Advanced is 100% organic and made from raw turmeric with no fillers.

Manuka Honey for Heartburn

Manuka_Honey

Over 20 million people suffer from heartburn, the burning sensation caused by stomach acid traveling up the esophagus. Dr. Oz recommends taking a teaspoon of manuka honey at the first sign of heartburn. The anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties of medicinal honey can ease your symptoms. Pacific Resources UMF 15+ Manuka Honey is raw, organic, medical grade honey harvested from New Zealand, where manuka flowers are bountiful. Dr. Oz also cautions that skinny jeans may worsen heartburn. Tight clothing puts pressure on the abdomen, slowing digestion and causing acid reflux. Carbonated beverages, salt, chocolate, caffeine, citrus, tomatoes, as well as pain relievers and cigarettes, can all trigger heartburn flares. In addition to manuka honey, Dr. Oz suggests eating a banana a day, which thickens the mucosal lining of the stomach and esophagus to create a natural protective barrier. Orange peel extract can also help by speeding up digestion — take 1000 mg every other day, up to 20 days.
