1. EmuMagic® Deep Pain Relief Lotion™
Q. How is DPR so effective as compared to off-the-shelf pain
A. DPR is a
concentrate that contains No Water! As such, you get
the full value of the ingredients in the product. Each ingredient was
chosen for the benefit it offers you.
DPR has 6 analgesics, not just 1 or 2.
DPR also contains a high concentration of
"Emu Oil", unlike other products. alone,
Emu Oil is a natural anti-inflammatory, deep penetrating, moisturizing
emollient and an excellent trans-dermal carrier of the other ingredients.
DPR couples 6 ingredients that work on
pain and discomfort in concentrations that work! Ingredients vary
in quality, effectiveness and cost. DPR uses the highest quality
ingredients, regardless of cost, including essential Lavender Oil, to
provide you with the best performing pain reliever for your dollar. We only
use New Zealand
Kanuka Tea Tree oil because of its superior affect on staphylococcus
Q. How is DPR different
from the Blue Emu® advertised on TV?
DPR is a natural product without artificial dyes or fragrances. It contains 40% Emu oil as its first
listed ingredient not its 6th. DPR
contains only the natural blend of oils and uses no wax fillers or
water. DPR uses only items in
effective percentages and does not use small amounts of ingredients to
enhance its label appeal. DPR is
based upon American Emu Oil, which comes from our own emu raised hormone,
steroid and anti-biotic free and is from Emu that are humanely raised using
premium feeds and never contained in feed lots. DPR relies on word of mouth
for advertising. Our customers sell
our product for us.
Q. How does the cost compare to over-the-counter products?
A. When you compare
the cost per month to achieve benefit, DPR
is an excellent value. With other
products, numerous applications are needed over a very long period of time
for mere moderate relief. DPR provides quick surface relief and then deeply
penetrates into the tissue for the more lasting deep tissue relief.
DPR with Emu Oil provides a cumulative
benefit. That is, sufferers of chronic pain report that DPR needed to be
applied less often over time to get the same benefit.
DPR was formulated to relieve chronic
pain from athletic activities, not just minor pains. It is provided in a
concentrate, rather than a watered down version to provide serious athletes
and serious pain sufferers with the relief they seek to maintain
performance levels and maintain lifestyles at a favorable per use price.
Applied according to directions, DPR
is an extremely economical pain analgesic per application.
Q. Will DPR burn my skin?
A. Very unlikely if you
follow the directions and shake it well before using. The warming
ingredients of DPR are natural ingredients. The principal analgesic is
provided by methyl salicylate from natural wintergreen oil. We do not use
capsicum or capsaicin, although the established medical community has
approved it for use combating arthritis, because capsaicin reportedly burns
the skin especially in the elderly.
DPR uses a natural heating
and cooling anti-inflammatory approach to providing relief. First you feel
the warmth and soon thereafter you feel cooling to the skin. The real benefit often occurs long after
the heating/cooling sensations have disappeared.
Q. Do you make a pain reliever without odor?
contains the natural aroma of its ingredients with no attempt to mask them.
To gain a similar effect, but with a lesser benefit, we would have to
substitute ingredients that are known to damage skin. As yet we have found
no way to deliver the same benefit without the natural aroma.
Q. I am allergic to aspirin. Can I use DPR?
contains methyl salicylate not acetyl salicylate (acetylsalicylic acid is
aspirin). Methyl salicylate comes from natural wintergreen oil.
We have not experienced anyone reacting
negatively to methyl salicylate. Unlike oral pain relievers such as
aspirin, acetaminophen or ibuprofen, the topical
application of DPR does not interact directly with your digestive system or your internal
organs and is not a pain blocker. Thus,
it avoids many of the side effects from pills or capsules.
Q. Since the product is a concentrate that lasts a long
time, what is its shelf life?
A. The manufacturer
suggests a shelf life of 2-3 years when kept in cool dark conditions. However exposure to heat can shorten the
shelf life of the bottle.
Q. How long does DPR take to work?
A. Normally to feel
the effect of DPR takes at least 15 minutes although you may experience an
immediate topical sensation of warming and cooling. The full benefit of DPR
occurs over several hours and accumulates with use. We have reports from chronic
pain sufferers of receiving their first relief in years within 20 minutes
and it lasting several hours.
When DPR is used on joints and severe
deep tissue injuries, benefit may take a much longer period. Reported joint
relief for some has taken numerous applications.
Q. Does DPR heal the
A. No. DPR works on
reducing inflammation and discomfort allowing your own healing mechanisms
to work for you. Pain indicates a problem requiring medical attention. DPR
should not be used as a symptom reliever to allow you to exacerbate the
underlying medical problem causing the pain.
Some preliminary announcements from
immune system studies involving Emu oil indicate that Emu oil may be a
synergistic participant in healing through its relief of inflammation and
its high content essential fatty acids.
By reducing inflammation, natural blood
flow is returned and natural healing is allowed to progress.
Q. How should I use
A. Roll-on or spray
on a small amount to the clean affected area at the source of the pain.
Lightly massage it in to receive the quickest benefit. [A
little goes a long way so there is no need to pour it on.]
Professional athletes have covered the affected area,
especially involving joints and deep tissue bruises with plastic wrap to
focus the heat. Caution is recommended when following this practice.
Removal of the plastic allows the skin to breathe and cooling to occur.
People with sensitive skin should not attempt to increase the
use DPR either before taking a sauna nor just before or just after a hot
shower. Cool down after exercise before applying DPR. Allow the pores to close.
Q. How often can I use DPR?
A. Every 3-4 hours is suggested.
Q. What can I use DPR for?
find new uses for it every day. We provide a list from what our customers
Q. Who currently uses DPR?
Athletes, Senior Citizens, People suffering from pain, marathoners,
joggers, bicyclists, weekend athletes, walkers, soccer players, high school
sport participants, swimmers, trainers, massage therapists, chiropractors,
hockey players, truck drivers, chronic pain sufferers, fibromyalgia

Q. Do you use DPR yourself?
yes. It was originally developed to
alleviate the pain from two torn rotator cuffs.
2. Pure Premier Emu Oil™
Q. Why is Emu oil in all of your products?
A. Emu oil was
discovered by the Australian Aborigines to be an excellent source for
healing. Science has discovered that Emu oil is rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6
essential fatty acids and Omega-7 and Omega-9 critical fatty acids. It is
non-comedogenic (it doesn't clog pores like most oils); it is a natural
anti-inflammatory; it is a deep penetrating trans-dermal carrier, meaning
it deeply penetrates the skin layers; it penetrates quickly; it is a
natural moisturizer; it aids in cell regeneration; it aides in reducing
wrinkles; it retards scarring; it favorably impacts the human immune
system; it is hypo-allergenic and bacteriostatic; and it is odorless.
Being rich in so many ways, we found that
adding Emu Oil to our products increased their effectiveness and created a
synergistic benefit that positively impacted other ailments and maladies.
Q. There are many Emu oils on the market. What makes your
oil different from the others?
A. EmuMagic is
fortunate to have control over the product from its inception. Emu oil
comes from the fat of the Emu. By controlling the feed quality and intake,
we are able to maximize the beneficial properties of the fat. Through
control over the harvest, storage, processing, refining and packaging we
assure the efficacy of our oil and preserve its quality. And by storing our
oil in cold temperatures, we prolong the life of our products.
Every batch undergoes laboratory analysis
so that it complies with our MSDS (material safety data sheet), and so that
you receive a product that is of consistent quality.
We are pleased
birds are all hormone, steroid and anti-biotic free, and that they are all
treated in a humane manner and never subjected to feed lots, cramped or
All of our products are prepared and
manufactured in accordance with all Federal Drug Administration
regulations, and processing of consumer meat occurs under USDA inspection.
The diet of the Emu determines the
chemical content of the fat it produces.
According to Dr. Michael Whitehouse, Emu Oil chemistry varied
significantly in relation to the effectiveness of the oil. EmuMagic® oil
comes from birds that are consistently fed the best premium feed
diet to produce a consistent fat chemistry. It is not blended with
fats from birds on lesser feed programs.
Q. Do you have to kill the birds to get the fat?
A. The birds are
raised commercially for human consumption. We waste very little of the
birds, in fact we recover about 95-97% of the bird for by-products.
Unfortunately, we have found no effective way to extract the fat without
harvest. Therefore, our birds are always humanely harvested and we are
present at each harvest to ensure our standards are met.
Q. Why do Emu oil prices vary so greatly?
A. The information
provided in the studies of Dr. Michael Whitehouse indicates that the
beneficial properties in Emu oil vary greatly. The testing our processors
have provided verifies the variance in fat qualities. Therefore, the birds
we accept must be on specific feed programs, which we designate. We will
not accept any others unless scientific proof of fat quality accompanies
Emu Oil is of consistent quality to provide the maximum benefit to you from
this marvelous creation--the Emu.
entry of the East Indians and Chinese in the market, emu oil quality has
varied and prices have also.
Unfortunately, the consumer is not cognizant of variations in emu
oil quality and stability and they can fall prey to vendors of substandard
products offered at premium market prices.
Q. How much Emu oil should I use?
A. Emu oil is very
viscous--very thin and spreads out. One drop goes a very long way! We
recommend you use the oil sparingly, although excessive amounts will not
hurt you-but they may be greasy and slow to penetrate the skin..
Q. Are there different grades of Emu Oil?
A. The American Emu
Association Oil Standards Committee has set minimum standards, which oils
must meet. Therefore, officially you have oils that meet this standard and
those that do not.
Various companies and groups have
described a number of different Emu oil grades, often based upon their own
We use three definitions of Emu Oil
quality: Ingestible; Cosmetic and Animal Grade. Ingestible is the highest
grade and is intended for internal human nutritional or dietary
supplementation. It must meet exacting USDA quality standards to be used
for human consumption. Cosmetic Emu Oil contains the same chemical makeup
but it does not undergo the same extensive refining or certification.
Animal Grade Emu Oil is quality oil, which is solely intended for animal
topical use. It is clean, pure and filtered, but it is not as highly
filtered or refined as human use products are. We do not use substandard
fat for any of our products. For our
products we only use ingestible highest grade emu oil.
Our MSDS is published under consumer
information on this web page: www.emumagic.com/msds.htm.
Q. Is there definitive scientific proof of the effectiveness
of Emu Oil?
A. Some, but not a
lot. Remember there isn't that kind of evidence for many products you use
regularly, like aloe or even aspirin.
We would like such studies to occur, but
the pharmaceutical companies do not have incentives to fund them. Dr. John
Lee describes the problem in his books and lectures: natural products
cannot be patented. Therefore the potential for a drug company to make
profit from natural products is less than from man or chemically altered
and patentable products. Take progesterone for example. Progesterone occurs
naturally in hundreds of plants. Instead of marketing natural progesterone
which cannot be patented, companies chemically alter (enhance as they say
it) progesterone from wild yams and mare urine.
They then patent these man-made products
and market them to the medical community for HRT (hormone replacement
The studies performed on Emu Oil to date
have primarily been product support studies. In other words, testimonial
evidence indicates a benefit from Emu Oil, and a company performs limited
testing to verify that its products do produce that benefit. Most of these
studies are proprietary and not generally available to the public.
Q. Have any patents been issued for Emu Oil?
A. Yes several. Emu
Man Oil Co patented a formula for Emu Oil in combination with methyl
salicylate for the relief of arthritis pain. A formula for Emu Oil with a
topical anesthetic has been patented. Emu oil use for healing, immune
systems and other maladies have been patented. Emu Oil in combination with
products like natural progesterone have current patents applied for.
