  • I have crohns disease. Should i start keto diet with organic healthy fats like olive oil, nut butters, butter, coconut oil… Also eating a lot of easy to digest nutrient dense vegetables. I also that to do keto+ low lectin foods. Or is paleo diet better. Please help. Thank you

  • By the way, very deep massage to a sprained ankle will usually have it healed in about an hour.   I had a very bad sprained ankle, and was in so much pain I could not put my foot on the floor without excruciating pain.   My boyfriend grabbed my foot and deeply massaged my ankle and foot for just over a minute.   I was yelling at him and struggling the entire time because it hurt so much.   But we’d been into massage and he thought it might help me.  After that I went to sleep for about and hour, and when I woke up, 98% of the pain was gone and I could walk just fine!    I did have a slight stone-bruised feeling on the bottom of my foot, but it was nothing compared to the sorry state I’d been in just an hour earlier.   Then I began to tell other people with sprains about this massage treatment for sprains and every one of them had the exact same results.  When we were in Mexico, I met an American lady whose father was a doctor, and also living there.   We talked about the sprain treatment I’d “discovered” and she told me about a little old man who lived in the town there where she and her dad lived.   She said he sat on a corner all day, and all he did was massage sprained ankles and wrists…something that could never happen in this country!   The reason this massage “heals” a sprain is because it breaks up the blood that has become congested around the sprained ankle.  It’s actually that clogged-up blood that is causing the intense pressure and pain, and when that’s broken up, and is able to flow away from the injury, all that pain “miraculously” goes away!   The majority of our doctors tell their patients to wrap the sprain and stay off it and on crutches for a couple weeks…exactly the opposite of what they should do!    That “treatment” only keeps all that dead, congested blood packed around the sprain, making healing take forever.   I’m sure many sports doctors know about massaging a sprain, but the average doctor hasn’t a clue!   This is really sad.   Also, this massage treatment works on a sprain that may be a week old, and the person was doing the wrapping-and-crutches thing, because I’ve had it work for a friend of mine.   I told her I wasn’t sure if it would work for her because it had been a week since her injury, but she had her husband do the massage that evening and the next day she came by, sans the crutches, praising the massage treatment, saying she was going to tell all her family and friends about it.   This knowledge could save a life if an accident happened on, say, a hiking trip.   There are just a couple things to remember…make sure it is a sprain…and have another person do the massage…because it hurts so bad, we cannot do it to ourselves!   It will hurt like hell to have this massage treatment, but would you rather hurt for a minute… or for two weeks?   Also, the entire foot, ankle and lower leg should be very deeply massaged…and not just some light strokes… but really deep, firm massage needs to be employed.   I hope this information helps some people out there, because sometimes our doctors don’t know it all!     kristi

  • Would love it if u recommended a specific product or brand of the supplements you don’t offer in your store. It’s hard to know what is good quality.

  • I really love your ability concisely explain things in a down to earth manner. I try to watch one of your videos every day. Any thoughts on emu oil’s benefits on improving the appearance of scar tissue?

  • My pharmacy sells an emu cbd cream..it’s worth every penny…I was handed a sample to try at home on my face..I had salivary cancer and have major scars on my neck and side of my face that are tight and pull on my muscles..as will as my “11” lines between my eyes..the cream relaxes those tight muscles and the oil in the cream soaks in and moisterizes my skin…it’s great. My eleven frown is half as deep as it used to be and my eye crinkles better… love it!!!

  • Dr. Berg, my Amazon cart can’t hold any more of these amazing supplements. Lol. Thanks for the video! More please. These are amazing.

  • Its also loaded with Vitamin K2 MK-4! (second only to NATTO) Its long been used for a skin cream, but you can take it internally.

  • @ Rich Astle thanks mate just checked the Aussie Emu Peak website and ordered some emu oil looking forward to it arriving in the mail! Thanks a bunch Rich

  • I am going to get me some emu oil. Didn’t realize it had these great benefits. Where is the best place I can find this? TFS Dr. Berg❤️

  • Wow I didn’t check my YT last night, used my Emu oil for the first time in like 6 months before bed and thought “I must use more often” and this morning I see this in my Subscriptions. The collective unconscious.

  • He forgot to mention it’s one of the best k2 sources available!
    Also it’s rather funny at how no one blinks an eye at the idea of using fish oil but go berserk over emus. They have been eaten and their oil used for thousands of years. And as the crow2332 commenter mentions below keeping the population down is necessary. Kangaroos and wallabies are the deer of Australia, growing to huge numbers (and get into everyones’ yards) just like deer in North America. No one appears to have an issue with venison from a cute deer.

  • I have never heard of Emu Oil and didn’t know it was a thing, definitely going to buy this, hope I will find some that delivers to the UK.

    I suffer from Dry Eye Syndrome, Blepharitis and Eye Floaters, this may help:)

    Thank you Dr Berg for another insightful and helping video:)

  • Thing is when I DO what Dr. Berg Says then the Results are EXACTLY what Dr. Berg Promised they would be. Dr. Berg Never Lies to me!
    That’s Basically a Better Track Record than Jesus!

  • Hi rich, i have a 4yr old daughter who recently had a bad fall at the local park, she has a 1 inch cut from eyebrow to mid forehead in diagnal angle, it was very deep and had opened wide. The doctors have glued it together and she now has bandages holding it to heal. I am extremely worried about the scarring and how it will effect her when the bandages are removed.
    Can your product help with fading the scars? Also is it safe to use on a child?
    Thank you and kind regards.

  • This is very true. Been using this as an antiseptic for wounds & burns for years, pretty sure that the Aborigines use it for burns too. Mine has Manuka honey & Tea tree mixed in with it though, it’s a roll on. Very good to have in your medicine cupboard. Beware though, only ever buy Pure oil from Australian Emus, they’re raised much better, oil from other Countries are not well raised at all, unless things have changed.�� Thanks for sharing, & take care. ❤����

  • Emu oil isn’t any different from snake oil. They are both infamous scams. There hasn’t been enough research done on emu oil to back up any of the claims made in this video and none regarding the long term negative affects of its use. Anyone can get the same relief from topical applications of fifty other more scientifically tested and cheaper skin care products without smelling foul. Pun intended. There is even less proof of the claims made about ingesting the stuff. It’s hard to believe that “Dr.” Berg wouldn’t point this out to viewers unless he is just part of the chicanery. Really, hard to believe.

  • First I have to say thank you for posting this video. I would like to know the proper way to apply the oil. Do I use it like a serum? Also would like to know would this oil faded 8 yr old stretch marks? They are still purple, not white. Only say that from being old that white scars are very hard if not impossible to remove. I would be so grateful for Emu oil for helping me get a healthy glowing face and for my stretch marks to be gone.

  • The very sad truth about emu oil is that the emu has to die in order for them to extract the oil. I won’t use it ever again for that very reason.
    “Emus are unfortunately killed to produce the emu oil. However, the emus are also killed for their meat. Many emu farmers raise and slaughter the animals then the byproducts are then used for food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical purposes.”… and many only slaughter the emus for their oil��

  • I got my emu oil in the mail today took a capsule and rubbed one on my knees. Will keep coming back to let you know how my old bones are doing

  • I �� Emu Oil and used is for all the above except for shingles, I’ve never had that lol. I started using it after I had a Hysterectomy in 2014 and omg I also discovered it’s amazing for wrinles too. �� yup

  • Dr. Berg, my Amazon cart can’t hold any more of these amazing supplements. Lol. Thanks for the video! More please. These are amazing.

  • Dr berg I why are you promoting this oil. This bird has to be killed to get the oil. Their are many oils that do the same thing. I will not be watching anymore of your videos

  • Sure, it isn’t mostly a marketing thing? After being asked by a friend I tried to research a little. I didn’t find too much evidence besides one or the other great sounding benefits that you can easily achieve with more common stuff as well.
