From sunburns to poison ivy, Emu oil has properties which promote wound healing. It is gentle for all skin types and does not clog pores. It is natural and hypo-allergenic, making it great for people with sensitive skin and allergies. Emu oil may be used for the whole body. Its basis and benefits are derived from Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs).
Emu Oil contains both Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are good for the heart. The Omega-3 oils increase the concentrations of good cholesterol while decreasing the concentrations of bad cholesterol. Omega-6, or Linoleic acid, is a polyunsaturated fatty acid that produces prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are substances that are found in every cell and are needed for the body’s overall health maintenance and must be replenished constantly. Fatty acids help to maintain the health of cell membranes, improve nutrient use, and establish and control cellular metabolism. They also provide the raw materials that help in the control of blood pressure, blood clotting, inflammation, body temperature, and other body functions.

|Aging Spots||Diaper Rash||Moisturize Dry Skin|
|Arthritis Pain||Eczema||Reduce Scarring|

TheraTears Nutrition supports eye comfort and healthy tears from the inside. Omega-3 oils are called “essential” fatty acids because good health requires that they be in your diet. The problem is that virtually all of us don’t get enough Omega-3s in the food we eat. Your body uses Omega-3 oils to support healthy tear production that improves eye comfort by keeping the eyes moisturized. TheraTears Nutrition provides all of the Omega-3s your eyes need, so as you continue to take it, your eyes will continue to feel their best.
The oil glands in your eyelids use essential fatty acids to manufacture the oil layer of the tear film. TheraTears Nutrition provides the Omega-3s you oil glands need to make the healthy oil that coats your tear film to reduce evaporation. This healthy oil protects and moisturizes the eye and supports healthy tear function.
At the same time the two types of Omega-3s in TheraTears Nutrition from flaxseed oil and fish oil, also protect your lacrimal gland and help it make healthy amounts of tear fluid. As a result TheraTears Nutrition supports healthy, comfortable eyes throughout the day.
Made for chronic dry eye sufferers, this kit stimulates natural tear production and enhances the benefits of artificial tears, Restasis, ointments, punctual plugs and supplements. Each kit also includes a set of instant Thermoeyes™ gel packs, which can be used for moist heat therapy or soothing cold therapy. For dry eye relief, the moist heat therapy is the most effective. It helps loosen oils in the meibomian glands and stabilizes tear film, further reducing evaporation of natural and artificial tears.
