Nature’s Secret: Pure, Prime Emu Oil

Debra Murray

  Treat Yourself to the Best Natural Moisturizer for Skin  Save money and forget about abrasive skin peels and microdermabrasion treatments. Like our skin, emu oil contains no phospholipids. A moisturizer with phospholipids is rejected by the skin so part of the moisturizer is never absorbed.    Emu oil quickly and easily absorbs through all of the layers of your skin, hydrating even the deepest layers. Over time, it can also help thicken your skin, making it smoother, softer, and suppler.   But it does much more than just moisturize and soften the skin.

Debra Murray

  Everyone has heard the medical axiom that strains and sprains can be worse than breaks. This is true primarily because when the body experiences a bone break the affected area of the body becomes immobile. With strains and sprains, pain is present, but extensive damage can be done because the body is still able to flex, bend and move. Movement of an injured area can result in great internal damage and possible irreversible harm.   Whereas breaks and tears are obvious, sprains and strains are not. Bones and muscles are joined through complex rubbery ligaments and tendons that allow...

Avoid Frozen Shoulder

Debra Murray

Adhesive Capsulitis or Frozen Shoulder is an immobilizing and painful condition attacking the shoulder joint and surrounding ligaments.

Joint Health Studies Prove Benefits of Opti-MSM

Debra Murray

Opti-MSM is just one of the key ingredients in Joint Support Formula by BLUESPRING.   Osteoarthritis, or OA, is believed to affect more adults annually than any other disabling illness. Knee, shoulder and even elbow pain are common hallmarks of OA flare-ups, and each of these symptoms can easily turn a productive day into one devoted to pain management. Although analgesics and anti-inflammatories can provide some relief, they fail to exert any medicinal effect beyond simple palliation (relieving pain without dealing with the underlying cause). Opti-MSM, however, reduces symptoms by attempting to restore connective tissue and healthy joint functioning.   Any substance that...
