Emu Oil Offers Hope to Burn Victims
Some Physicians Using Emu Oil To Assist In Burn Treatment
(EMAILWIRE.COM, June 18, 2007 ) San Angelo, Texas – Burn victims, more so than many other accident victims, face a multitude of roadblocks on the road to recovery. Beyond the shock and trauma of the initial incident, they must endure agonizing pain, the ever-present risk of infections and the excruciating treatment of their wounds which often entails scraping the burn site to promote new skin growth. The likelihood of extensive scarring without and sometimes even with numerous plastic surgical procedures is an ever-present anxiety. However, some physicians are finding that the addition of emu oil to the treatment regime for burn victims affords a ray of hope to the promising recovery of their patients.
Emu oil, with a fatty acid composition very similar to the requirements of the skin, may promote new skin growth and lessen the extent of the prolonged and painful traditional treatments of debridement and numerous skin grafting in burn cases. Dr. Dan Dean, a Mount Pleasant, MI physician, states that his use of emu oil has shown promise. “I have used emu oil extensively in the treatment of first, second and third degree burns,” the doctor said. “In my opinion, emu oil greatly contributes to skin health, providing major benefits to the patient. The complex properties and makeup of emu oil are exceptional for overall assistance to burn victims. I repeatedly see positive results even in those with third degree burns,” Dean states.
Dr. Dean will be presenting Emu Oil Use in Family Practice during the Emu Oil Seminar for Medical Professionals on July 7th at the Holiday Inn Downtown at the Park in Missoula, MT. The seminar is being held in conjunction with the 17th Annual American Emu Association National Convention.
