Natural Skin Care for Diabetics
There are over 150 million people suffering from diabetes worldwide. Of these, approximately 15% will incur foot lacerations, and sadly, 3% will lose their limbs to amputation as a result. But doctors have discovered a new, natural treatment that could be the answer to preventing such tragedies: emu oil. We have learned that it presents a highly effective diabetic foot wound care option.
Pure emu oil, free of impurities and harsh chemicals or toxins, has a molecular makeup that is very close to that of human skin. Because its pH balance is so similar to the human dermis, emu oil is absorbed quickly, deeply, and thoroughly. Emu oil has natural pain relieving, anti-inflammatory, and moisturizing capabilities. As such, it has been shown as a great option for natural wound care for diabetics. Doctors are now looking at these capabilities as a form of prevention, not just relief.
Emu oil is so thoroughly absorbed into the skin that it can be used as a means to soothe the skin. Dr. Robert Winston, a Jackson, Tennessee physician, is excited about emu oil’s potential. “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."
Diabetic wound care has long been a challenge to doctors who struggle to heal wounds and prevent infection. Due to poor circulation, wounds in the extremities take longer to heal for diabetics. Wounds that start out small can eventually lead to amputation. Even dry skin can be dangerous to diabetics. Dry skin can lead to cracks that become sores. Emu oil helps soften and moisturize the skin completely, preventing such sores.
The presence of linoleic and oleic acids in emu oil gives it a natural anti-inflammatory rub that effectively aids in temporary relief of arthritis, joint aches, and bruised muscles.
Through the process of molecular distillation, emu oil is refined to its purest state and fit for use either by itself or in other skin care products. Emu oil is bacteria-free, odor-free, and steroid-free, making it an easy alternative to most over-the-counter lotions and creams. And now, emu oil might be the solution to a problem that has long challenged doctors and plagued diabetics. The possibilities are exciting. Dr. Barry Sears, researcher and author of Zone Diet books, says, “Emu oil is an untapped resource and currently now is where aspirin was in the early 1900s.”
