Emu Oil

Emu oil has been used for thousands of years by Aboriginal people to reduce the pain and swelling of arthritis, heal wounds and burns (including sunburn) and to reduce the pain, itch and swelling from insect bites and stings.

Emu oil is an effective anti-inflammatory. The potency of its anti-inflammatory effect is similar to that of ibuprofen, without the negative side-effects common to conventional anti-inflammatory medications.

Emu oil is believed to be beneficial in the treatment of many conditions, including arthritis, gout, muscle fatigue, joint pain, burns (particularly sunburn), dry skin, psoriasis, eczema and wound healing and scarring. Many studies and testimonials indicate it may help to reduce cholesterol, probably because of its high levels of essential fatty acids.

Distributer Howard Fox says the products are amazing. "They can reduce the swelling of muscle and joint problems and are fantastic for eczema, psoriasis and dry skin problems."

However, Dr Len Rose, Director of the Melbourne Pain Management Clinic, says, "There are no cures for arthritis and eczema". He says buyers should be cautious.

But the emu oil users ACA spoke to said it worked well for them.

Expectant mother Debra Stavrinidis is a happy customer. "This pregnancy I have used emu oil, rubbing it on my stomach. I have not had any stretch marks whatsoever, whereas in my first pregnancy I was prone to stretch marks."

Howard Fox says that this is a natural product, so it will take four to five days to kick in.

Interest in emu oil has increased dramatically over recent years. It is currently involved in many trials and studies within the cosmetic and medical industries as they attempt to unlock the secrets of this unique substance.

 

Arthritis alternatives: managing pain naturally

It's estimated more than three million Australians suffer arthritis — a painful condition affecting the joints. For many people, managing the disease is a challenging case of trial and error but as ACA reports, some new alternate treatments are showing promise in helping to improve quality of life.

Bio-medical scientist, ergonomic consultant and arthritis sufferer David Cooper could be forgiven for being a little sceptical about "natural" remedies for pain relief. But now, after seeing his arthritis-riddled mother transform before his eyes, the 56-year-old swears by a balm whose active ingredient is emu oil.

"She was getting four to six hours' relief, in fact, she was getting a good night's sleep so I started on it when I started getting the pains and it's done wonders for me," David says.

David claims he can settle the pain in his neck and shoulders, even in his hands, within 10 to 15 minutes of applying the cream to the point where he can feel no soreness at all.

James Parsons, general manager of Emu Fire, the company which manufacturers the balm, says it's a combination of natural ingredients including emu oil, capsicum, black pepper and ginger.

"All these different ingredients are anti-inflammatory, they've all been blended into a special formula that penetrates deeply, gets right into the tissues and reduces the inflammation and swelling," he says.

While there is no cure for the condition, James says the arthritis balm is effective as part of a maintenance program to help people get through their day and improve their quality of life.

Tea-Tree Oil

 

For wounds and fungal conditions

 

The oil from Melaleuca alterniflora is the great Aussie cure-all.  Aborigines used the plant's crushed leaves to treat skin infections, and in World War II, Australian soldiers had tea-tree oil in their first-aid kits.  The oil has antibacterial, antifungal and antiseptic properties and effectively treats cuts, abrasions, cold sores, insect bites and fungal skin infections.  It's also a great gargle and mouthwash.
