Emu oil is a natural anti-inflammatory that can be taken internally (orally) and externally to help relieve the symptoms of inflammation based symptoms such as arthritis, eczema, psoriasis and pain associated with sports injuries. Y-Not Natural’s Oil of Emu is a versatile anti-inflammatory that penetrates the skin quickly because it has a composition similar to hydrolipidic film of sound skin (healthy skin). Oil of Emu works by deeply penetrating all layers of the skin and relieving the actual source of pain and discomfort by reducing inflammation.
When used to treat psoriasis, Emu oil helps relieve redness and irritation, and in most cases, reduces the overall appearance and size of psoriasis.
Emu oil also helps keep your skin moisturised and encourages the growth of new, healthy skin.
"Psoriasis affects more than 6% of Australian adults. The predominant course of treatment is topical corticosteroids and retinoids; however these therapies impose a high risk of skin irritation and further side effects with longer term use. This study examines the efficacy of emu oil, a natural product with no known side effects, in reducing the severity of psoriasis, improving quality of life and decreasing psoriasis medication requirements
A double blinded, placebo controlled, six group repeated measures design with 91 participants was used to establish the effects of emu oil in comparison to a placebo, cottonseed oil, when applied topically; ingested; or applied topically and ingested. Patient-reported severity and quality of life measures were recorded at baseline and thereafter weekly and monthly, respectively, for twelve weeks. Psoriasis medication diaries detailing dosage and frequency of medications external to the trial were completed by participants weekly.
Emu oil participants showed a larger and more consistent decline in mean severity scores than the placebo groups. Statistically, emu oil severity scores were significantly lower than placebo;F(20.58, 52.0) = 2.0, p= 0.008 partial ŋ² = 0.161. There was no significant difference between the groups for quality of life. Overall, emu oil participants required less additional psoriasis medication....
Emu oil has been used by indigenous Australians to treat joint and muscular pains, skin ailments and burns for thousands of years. It is non-toxic and there have been no published reports of side effects with its use to date. Approved by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in July 2002, as Aust L 92158, emu oil has since been used as both a topical and an oral anti-inflammatory agent.
In 1998, Whitehouse et al., found emu oil preparations demonstrated anti-inflammatory activity equivalent to or greater than the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), ibuprofen and activity that rivalled the corticosteroid, prednisolone. In addition, no adverse effects were observed with any of the tested emu oil preparations...
"...the results of this trial suggest that emu oil may be effective in the management of psoriasis and reduce the need for additional, more toxic therapies."
