If you are experiencing arthritis pain or you know someone who has had to endure such, then you understand how uncomfortable and inconvenient it is.

When the inflammation and pain flares up, it becomes difficult to go for your evening walks, garden, play with your grandkids, or care for yourself on a daily basis.

Things you used to do in the blink of an eye have you on the edge due to the restrictions caused by the pain and difficulty moving.

Though it is not limited to elderly persons, the symptoms typically worsen with age. It is especially limiting to people over 60. 

There is no exact cure for arthritis, but it can be treated and managed.

Besides the conventional ways of treatment, the use of emu oil or cream has proven to be effective in reducing arthritis pain.

Emu oil contains anti-inflammatory properties that can help treat your arthritis symptoms and improve your quality of life.

This stuff really works! I've bought some for my sister who has RA and got some for myself. It really works. Now I'm getting another for my elderly mother.”

What Is Arthritis?

This is a degenerative disease marked with inflammation, pains, stiffness, and swelling in the joints.

Of the 5 different types identified, the most common ones are rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis occurs when the tissue connecting the end of two bones wears out and causes them to rub together.

The effects are evident in the muscles, knee pain, hip aches, hand discomfort, and even in the spine.

Like many health conditions, doctors prescribe medications for pain relief. However, the resulting side effects tend to outweigh the health benefits. 

Arthritis Symptoms

When a person is affected by the disease, these are some of the common symptoms to look out for. 

  • Joint swelling
  • Joint tenderness
  • Joint pain
  • Loss of range of mobility of the joint
  • Stiffness
  • Weakness of muscles

Once identified, applying emu oil to the affected area helps a great deal. The anti-inflammatory properties of emu oil are key to arthritis pain relief.

While arthritis has no cure, emu oil contains natural ingredients that can treat and drastically improve your arthritis symptoms.

The application of emu oil to the affected surface area ensures pain relief. 

As people begin to explore the possibilities of alternative medicine for healing, the use of olive oil, emu oil, and other animal oils has become popular.

I am really enjoying the product. It seems to be helping with my knee arthritis. The oil is helping with my skin as well. -Charity R.

Here is how emu oil works to bring relief to the pain in your joints: 

  • Emu oil penetrates the skin barrier to provide relief to the joints.
  • Emu oil, due to its anti-inflammatory properties, helps to reduce swelling, pain, and stiffness. It also aids wound healing. 
  • The reduction of the inflammation around the joints prevents scar tissue formation which tends to worsen the condition of your joints.
  • With the reduction of the swelling, the muscles around the joints improve mobility and help you get things done.

According to the CDC, over 54 million people are affected by arthritis in the US. Despite the care provided by doctors, many have turned to alternative medicine to get better.

These include the use of creams and oils (olive oil, croton oil, animal oils, and natural oils). Pure emu oil, a natural oil, has proven to be effective in treating arthritis symptoms.

Emu oil contains vitamins as well as fatty acids in its natural composition. To achieve the purposes of the emu oil in treating arthritis symptoms, here’s how to effectively use it:

Massage With Emu Oil

  • Get your emu oil and apply a small amount to the affected joint. You could mix the oil with your cream to aid faster absorption into your skin.
  • Ensure that the oil is rubbed across the surface of the skin. Massage the sore joints and muscles gently.
  • Do this at least 2–3 times daily to improve to get maximum results.

Use a Topical Cream

  • The Banish My Pain cream contains emu oil enhanced with arnica and camphor, two ingredients well known for their pain relieving properties.
  • Use the cream alongside the emu oil to relieve aches and pain during the day and before bed.
  • Massage on the joint surface using your hands. 
  • Do this at least 2–3 times daily. 

Use the On the Go Stick

  • This is a portable pain reliever to use when you’re out and about. 
  • It can be applied topically to relieve pain. It also takes the sting out of bug bites.

The combination of these three products contributes immensely to managing your arthritis symptoms on a day-to-day basis.

“Everyone loves it

I gave the stick to a gentleman age 80 who suffers from low back pain from spina stenosis. After putting it on his back before bed he was able to sleep all night with no pain at all. A friend of mine age 60 was packing and moving. She came to me in unbearable pain around her left knee and left side.

She rubbed in 3 drops of emu oil in both areas. A few moments after she felt no pain and was able to continue her move and packing her storage unit. She said she was going to share the website with friends and family. One of her movers was suffering with chronic hand pain. I gave him 3 drops on each hand.

I am waiting to hear from him on how it worked. I use it on scratches from my cat. It gave me a quick forming scar and started healing faster than normal. Being a diabetic I usually heal slow. Not any more! Thanks emujoy!”

Why Should You Use the Arthritis Pain Relief Cream?

Like emu oil, there are pain relief creams that also help reduce pain in the joint.

The Banish My Pain cream is enhanced with emu oil to reduce inflammation and prevent skin irritation.

The deep penetrating ability of emu oil ensures it reaches your joints and muscles to ease swelling and provide soothing comfort.

Unlike other pain creams, this cream has a mild scent, not medicinal. This is due to the additional botanical ingredients included to relieve pain, including arnica and camphor. 

Why Is Emu Oil the Best to Treat Arthritis?

Emu oil is obtained from the emu bird dromiceius novahollandiae, which is indigenous to Australia.

For thousands of years, the by-products (especially the oil) from the emu bird have served to treat many health conditions thereby increasing the quality of life.

Research has shown that the oil drawn from the emu bird contains fatty acids which are beneficial to wound healing, skin conditions, and pain relief.

The anti-inflammatory properties contained in the oil easily break through the skin barrier to soothe the skin, heal the tissues and minimize pain.

Emu Oil has no side effects and is easy to use. 

Other Uses of Emu Oil to Improve Your Health

Emu oil isn’t limited to the treatment of joint pains and aches. There are other beneficial uses of emu oil that help improve your health.

 

It is an excellent facial skin moisturizer, especially when applied at night. Use alone or add a drop to your favorite moisturizer to improve its penetration.

The oil can is also used to treat conditions like fibromyalgia, scars, burns, lichen sclerosus, and hemorrhoids.
