A long time ago I talked directly to you by phone
You told me that you had your Mother on Emu Oil and that it seemed to stabilize her blood pressure. I gave it a try because no matter how much the doctor increased my medication/water pill my blood pressure would not come down and too much of the one medication put too much strain on my one and only kidney.
You suggested that I may be eliminating the medication through my urine and to try the Emu oil capsules.
Well, I am happy to announce that faithfully taking Emu oil daily has stabilized my blood pressure at 120/80 and just to try an experiment myself I stopped taking the Emu Oil only to have my blood pressure elevate again. Amazing!
My husband recently went in for a physical and complete blood work and his cholesterol was out of the ballpark so to speak and the doctor wanted to put him on medication immediately. I said, "No" and to please give us 12 weeks to see if we could lower the numbers by diet and exercise and my husband now takes Emu oil capsules as well. I am so excited about this and thank you for the latest write up on cholesterol.
I will keep you posted on the results. I changed his diet drastically, eliminating all milk products substituting soy and rice milk and he eats absolutely no eggs. Oatmeal is served in the mornings with blueberries, or bulgar wheat, or bran wheat cereal. For dinner, lean cuts of meat, chicken, and soy protein is now served and he stays within the recommended 300mgs of cholesterol daily intake. White flour and starches has been eliminated and he enjoys mashed sweet potatoes. Rice a Roni is a favorite with no cholesterol, lucky for him.
We are excited to see what the results will be upon the next doctor's visit. The doctor was not happy with the game plan my husband presented to him but agreed to let us do our own thing first, medication will be considered as a last result. At least through a change in diet there won't be any adverse side effects !
Thank you Nettie for your wonderful products and your customer service.
Sincerely yours, JoAnn M
DEAR AEA MEMBERS,
RITA, N.D. EMU ASSOC. AND AEA MEMBER
TWO YEARS AGO I HAD A HEART ATTACK. I HAD BEEN ON A LOW FAT DIET AND MY HDL DROPPED TOO LOW. WITH A 30 HDL THE BLOOD HAD THICKEDED AND CAUSED A BLOCKAGE. I WAS TOLD BY THE NURSE PRACTIONER THAT I WAS A WALKING TIME BOMB AND TO GET THE HDL UP. DRINK THE OIL IN THE SARDINE CANS AND EAT ALL THE FISH I CAN. I ORDERED SOME EMU OIL GEL CAPS INSTEAD AND IN THE SHORT OF TIME I GOT MY HDL UP TO 85. MY NURSE PRACTIONER TOLD ME IT WAS UNHEARD OF TO GET IT UP SO FAST AND SUCH A SAFE AND NATURAL WAY. SHE HAS TOLD OTHERS ABOUT EMU OIL AND IS A FIRM BELIEVER.
I HAVE JUST PROCESSED 12 ADULT BIRDS SO I CAN BE EATTING A HEALTHY MEAT ALONG WITH THE OIL GEL CAPS. TAKE CARE ALL OF YOU OUT THERE IN EMU LAND.
I ordered your Blemish Control as well as your Redness & Blemish Control and your Super-Rich Moisturizer last summer. Now I have to write to you and thank you for these excellent products!
Back in the mid nineties, my husband, who is an insulin dependent diabetic, had an HDL of only 35. When we purchased our first emus and became familiar with the emu products, he started taking emu oil gel caps.
His doctor only checks for cholesterol once a year but, the next blood test after he started taking emu oil gel caps, his HDL was up to 65. This past Spring his HDL was 85 while his triclycerides are only 51. Not bad!
We are totally amazed since, though he does eat a good diet most times, peanut butter, ice cream and cookies are a staple in his life.
Also, his resting blood pressure averages 85 over 65 sometimes even lower.
My numbers have been very good through the years but, I have not had them tested recently.

This product (Gel-Caps) has done wonders for me. I have gone off prescribed medication. My overall cholesterol has lower along with the bad and the triglycerides. My good is still a little low. It has also lowered my blood pressure from about 130/75 to 114/70. The later reading has been the same at the last two office visits. My Dr. say keep on taking it. (My doctor kidded me about it jokingly saying he hated for me to take emu oil because he liked emus. I just looked at him a little funny and he laughed and said he was only kidding. He was referring to how some people say you shouldn't eat beef or some other meat because they like the animals and we shouldn't eat them. He told me to keep taking them).
It not only has helped lower my cholesterol and blood pressure it has helped ease the pain in my left leg and hip. It is a wonderful product. Taking these and not taking the statin drugs have really made a difference in the pain in my legs When I saw the capsules and really ordered them for the joint pain, then found out they help lower cholesterol and the blood pressure.
I have recommended it to my friend to whom this is being shipped.

My doctor has tried for 15 yrs to get my triglycerides down, but to no avail. Since I take 2 Emu Gel capsules or more daily not only has it made the triglycerides drop but has balanced all levels of my cholesterol counts. I am happy to report the latest Cholesterol reading was perfect! Total Cholesterol:199 LDL (bad): 107 Triglycerides: 109 and HDL (good):70. He told me he was amazed, never has he seen such remarkable readings. I did NOT change diet, in fact, ate many foods I shouldn't have.
I originally ordered this product to control the pain from my fibromyalgia. Since, I have discovered that it helps the pain for the fibro but also the pain from arthritis. It also is wonderful for cuts, bruises, etc for a speedy recovery with no scarring.
I'm so happy I discovered this product! Thank you Nettie!

Research Proves Emu Oil Claims Valid
Lowell, MASS - For years people have touted the homeopathic benefits of emu oil. Healing, penetrating, anti-aging and cholesterol lowering testimonials have been used to promote this food by-product from the emu, a domestically raised livestock in the U. S.
Dr. Robert Nicolosi, Director of the Center for Health and Disease Research at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell , has been conducting research to evaluate these claims. "Animal trials indicate that emu oil does have cholesterol lowering, anti-inflammatory and transdermal properties," reports Nicolosi.
Two different trials were done to evaluate the transdermal qualities of emu oil. In both trials, a preparation of emu oil containing either tocopherol (Vitamin E) or DHA (docosahexanoic), an omega 3 fatty acid was topically applied to the shaved surface of hamsters. Periodic blood samples taken over a seven day period demonstrated rather convincing evidence that emu oil has transdermal properties suggesting it may be utilized for transdermal delivery of compounds such as fat soluble nutrients, drugs or over-the-counter prescriptions.
Inflammation studies with mice indicated that emu oil significantly reduced croton oil-induced inflammation from 42% to 71% depending on when it was applied. A comparison with other oils in the omega 3 family oftentimes used to alleviate arthritic pain due to inflammation indicates that emu oil may be at least as good and possibly better at reducing inflammation. These anti-inflammatory properties of emu oil as well as the transdermal qualities indicate emu oil may have a place in topical applications.
Cholesterol research with hamsters fed a hypercholesterolemic diet followed by inclusion of emu oil provided significant results. Emu oil reduced the total cholesterol over 30%. Low Density Liprotein (bad cholesterol) was reduced 25%. With over 100 million Americans suffering from high cholesterol, cholesterol lowering drugs make up a major part of the pharmaceutical products market. If results from future human clinical trials of Emu Oil support the animal findings, it may become a very attractive additional cholesterol-lowering treatment for some consumers.
"Our research continues to investigate the many intriguing aspects of this oil. The most recent conclusions are very promising for millions of Americans," said Nicolosi.
