Diabetic Physician Competes in Marathons
and he gives EMU Oil the credit
Reprinted from Emu Today and Tomorrow, October 2000
Dr. C Fandrich, a corporate physician and diabetic provided the
following testimony of what EMU Oil has done for him.
As an insulin dependent diabetic for the last 36 of my 47 years, I have been
looking for any advantage available to prolong what has been fairly good health
in spite of my chronic condition.
I have run at least 10,000 miles since medical school, having started long
distance running at 24 years of age. I have run and completed 26.2 mile marathon
races as well as a half marathon, dozens of 5K and 10K races along with roller
blade races and a 26 mile mountain bike race. The last two summers I and some
friends have bicycled across Michigan (Pentwater to Bay City) in two days and
also this summer I participated in the Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride
Across Iowa (495 miles in 7 days).
As you can see I follow a fairly consistent exercise pattern to help control my
blood sugars. I come from a family history that is strong for diabetes, heart
disease, hypertension and asthma. My father also is an insulin diabetic and the
survivor of a 5 vessel cardiac by-pass operation at 67 years of age. His only
surviving brother had a similar by-pass operation at 62 years of age. My mother
is asthmatic and hypertensive. I did not pick my genes well!
After completing the Detroit Marathon last fall it became apparent that the
daily application of EMU Oil to my feet was a very real advantage. In past
marathons I usually had a blister or two and these took some time to heal
because of my diabetes. After the last marathon I had no blisters and virtually
no foot pain.
I had been fighting a fungal infection of several toenails and the EMU oil seems
to be helping that as well. The daily application of the oil has contributed to
the circulation of my feet and my toenails are growing faster and I am now free
of the fungal infection (this took over a year)!
Prior to using the EMU Oil on my feet on a daily basis (I've been faithfully
doing this for about 18 months) my feet were quite dry and at the end of the day
my socks would also be dry because I was losing the ability to sweat (at least
my feet were). Now I have normally sweaty feet when I get home from work, the
hair on my feet and toes is thriving as well. Both these changes indicate
improved circulation of which the EMU Oil has been an integral part.
I understand that the control and management of insulin dependent diabetes is a
multifaceted process which includes proper diet, routine exercise, and
medication (insulin which is dictated by regular blood sugar testing). However,
every additional method or tactic should be explored and EMU Oil has offered
some tangible advantages for me.
