Here are just a few of the responses we have received about this products:

Dear Sir,
Thank you for sending the Emu oil I ordered. I am 74 yrs. old and can't get around too well - I'm diabetic & use Emu oil on my feet & legs for the pain I get. I do highly recommend it to others for pain in their joints and bones. I want to buy these products for my own use because it's the only oil I've found to take the pain away. I use it every day - as for the lip balm - it also is the best I've found for my lips. Thanks again,
Sincerely, Mae I M., Lykens, PA

Thanks to EMU OIL, my husband and I can walk again without pain! I just can't believe what it has done for us! Many, many thanks for your wonderful products!

I think it is just great the way you acknowledge your e-mails! It makes me, as your customer, feel special.
Shirley A M., Mendon, MA

Many thanks for your Purple Rub pain relief cream. I purchased it for pain control with my degenerative disk disease in my neck. Imagine my surprise when I found it works for all sorts of pain. A sore muscle, a tender elbow, my achy arthritic hands. I haven't found anything it does not work for.

Thank you again for this marvelous product.

Peripheral Neuropathy - An Alternative Treatment for the Pain

By Myra Charleston
"He couldn't stand for anything to touch his leg. Even when you would just wave your hand above it enough to touch the hair on his skin he would cringe." Barbara is talking about her 72-year-old father, Leeman West of Tennessee. Mr. West was diagnosed with diabetes in 1985 and is currently on insulin twice a day. According to his doctor, his neuropathy is from having prolonged diabetes.

Peripheral neuropathy - damage to peripheral nerves, which lead from the brain and spinal cord throughout the body, sometimes occurs as a complication of a generalized illness such as diabetes mellitus. In this disease, slow damage to the nerves is manifested in a tingling sensation in the feet and/or hands, spreading slowly to the trunk. Numbness may develop or the skin may become very sensitive. As in Mr. West's case, there may be extreme pain. Because this slow damage to the nerves may become irreversible, early diagnosis is important. One of the major risks associated with this disease is the possibility of damaging a body part and being unaware of it due to the numbness.

Mr. West describes the pain as being like someone sticking an ice pick in his leg and twisting it around and around. He couldn't stand for anyone to touch it and despite the strong pain medication, most of the time the pain was unrelieved. Barbara has noticed a connection between his sugar level and the pain. "When he is in great pain the sugar level seems to be higher."

No child likes to see an elderly parent in pain, so Barbara was on the lookout for anything that might help. "I found the oil in a local drug store where I live. The druggist always has something new for people to try in there. It's not a chain store so he has more freedom to put things in there." Barbara says "I first bought a sample of the cream and Dad said it helped some but we never got any more of it. He was trying everything he could, from Ben-Gay to Avon Moisturizer. Of course nothing helped. In fact, the Ben-Gay made his leg raw like it was burning it!" The next time she went to the drug store, she bought a bottle of emu oil for him to try; telling him that it couldn't hurt to try. "It seemed to help. By this time the pain was so bad he really couldn't stand to touch it (the leg) to put the oil on it. But he sat still and suffered through it" Barbara recalled "The more he used it the better it felt. He wasn't even able to sleep at night for the pain waking him up. He began to be able to sleep better; the more he used the oil. He said now after about 4 months of using the oil his leg feels a whole lot better. He can even touch it now." Barbara went on to tell us that getting her father to try the oil was not difficult. " He told me yesterday they couldn't pay him to give up his emu oil for anything. He said he swears by it now."

Diabetic Physician Competes in Marathons
and he gives EMU Oil the credit

Reprinted from Emu Today and Tomorrow, October 2000

Dr. C Fandrich, a corporate physician and diabetic provided the following testimony of what EMU Oil has done for him.
As an insulin dependent diabetic for the last 36 of my 47 years, I have been looking for any advantage available to prolong what has been fairly good health in spite of my chronic condition.

I have run at least 10,000 miles since medical school, having started long distance running at 24 years of age. I have run and completed 26.2 mile marathon races as well as a half marathon, dozens of 5K and 10K races along with roller blade races and a 26 mile mountain bike race. The last two summers I and some friends have bicycled across Michigan (Pentwater to Bay City) in two days and also this summer I participated in the Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa (495 miles in 7 days).
As you can see I follow a fairly consistent exercise pattern to help control my blood sugars. I come from a family history that is strong for diabetes, heart disease, hypertension and asthma. My father also is an insulin diabetic and the survivor of a 5 vessel cardiac by-pass operation at 67 years of age. His only surviving brother had a similar by-pass operation at 62 years of age. My mother is asthmatic and hypertensive. I did not pick my genes well!

After completing the Detroit Marathon last fall it became apparent that the daily application of EMU Oil to my feet was a very real advantage. In past marathons I usually had a blister or two and these took some time to heal because of my diabetes. After the last marathon I had no blisters and virtually no foot pain.

I had been fighting a fungal infection of several toenails and the EMU oil seems to be helping that as well. The daily application of the oil has contributed to the circulation of my feet and my toenails are growing faster and I am now free of the fungal infection (this took over a year)!

Prior to using the EMU Oil on my feet on a daily basis (I've been faithfully doing this for about 18 months) my feet were quite dry and at the end of the day my socks would also be dry because I was losing the ability to sweat (at least my feet were). Now I have normally sweaty feet when I get home from work, the hair on my feet and toes is thriving as well. Both these changes indicate improved circulation of which the EMU Oil has been an integral part.

I understand that the control and management of insulin dependent diabetes is a multifaceted process which includes proper diet, routine exercise, and medication (insulin which is dictated by regular blood sugar testing). However, every additional method or tactic should be explored and EMU Oil has offered some tangible advantages for me.

Emu Oil Offers Hope to Diabetics
Some Physicians Using Emu Oil To Assist In Diabetic Wound Care

San Angelo, Texas - Diabetic wound care has been of great concern to physicians for many years and with good cause.  Even simple wounds can take twice as long to heal and they always have the potential to deteriorate into something severe.  Over 150 million people worldwide have diabetes and the number is expected to double by 2010.  Of these, it is estimated that at least 15% will develop foot ulcerations and that related complications will require 3% to have a lower limb amputation.  However, some physicians are finding that the addition of emu oil to the treatment regime for diabetic wound care offers some hope in the battle to save limbs. 

 Dr. Robert Winston, a Jackson, Tenn. physician, states that his use of emu oil has shown promise. "I have treated several diabetic wounds with antibiotics using emu oil as a transport from the outside in,” the doctor said.  “The results have been amazing."

The use of emu oil as a carrier for antibiotics may offer diabetic patients and attending physicians aid in the battle to promote healing and find ways to lessen the extent of the prolonged and painful traditional treatments usually involved in the treatment of decubitus ulcers.  Dr. Winston will be a guest speaker at The 2006 Emu Oil Seminar for Medical Professionals on Saturday, July 15.  The seminar is being held in conjunction with the American Emu Association National Convention, held this year at the Madison West-Marriott Hotel in Middleton, Wisconsin.  Area medical professionals are invited to attend the event which takes place from 1 to 5 PM.

A board certified internal medicine practitioner at the Eastside Medical Center in Jackson, Tennessee, Dr. Winston has practiced medicine for over 25 years.  He enjoys staff privileges at Regional Hospital of Jackson, Jackson-Madison County General Hospital and Meharry Medical College Dept. of Continuing Education.
