What you need to know about inflammation

Posted by Mia Murphy on

When your immune system detects a threat such infection, stress or harmful chemicals, it responds by producing inflammation to protect your cells from damage. Inflammation is usually beneficial, but it can backfire when the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissues due to autoimmune disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease and rheumatoid arthritis.

Here are five health conditions caused by inflammation and how emu oil can help treat them thanks to its powerful natural anti-inflammatory properties.

Ear inflammation

A promising study conducted at the University of Prince Edward Island in Canada found that topically applied emu oil significantly reduced the severity of acute ear inflammation in mice. If you develop an earache, put one or two drops of emu oil in the affected ear to reduce pain and swelling.

Arthritis

Emu oil applied topically or ingested may help relieve the pain of several forms of arthritis. Indian researchers found that a combination of curcumin and emu oil – two powerful anti-inflammatories – significantly improved joint pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis compared to curcumin alone.

Intestinal inflammation

Several health conditions can cause inflammation in the intestine, including inflammatory bowel diseases (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis) and mucositis, a painful inflammation of the mucous membranes in the digestive tract often due to chemotherapy or radiotherapy. In a series of studies, researchers at the University of Adelaide found that emu oil could help reduce inflammation in the bowel due to mucositis and ulcerative colitis. It was also shown to repair bowel damage caused by chemotherapy and it may even prevent ulcerative colitis from developing into bowel cancer.

Inflammatory skin conditions

Emu oil can relieve the pain and inflammation of eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, hives and other rashes. You can apply emu oil directly to the inflamed skin, take emu oil capsules orally or try a combination of both for maximum relief.

Injuries and wounds

The natural anti-inflammatory compounds in emu oil can help alleviate discomfort and swelling associated with sprains, strains and other injuries, as well as soothe minor burns, scrapes and cuts.
