New Treatment for Chronic Non-healing Wounds Unveiled

Transdermal delivery eliminates the danger of liver or kidney damage

(EMAILWIRE.COM, July 28, 2008 ) San Angelo, TX--There are a number of different types of non-healing wounds, including those from diabetic complications (neuropathic ulcers), trauma, burns, bed sores, pressure sores and amputations. Wounds of this type often have exposed muscle, bone and tendons resulting in extreme pain for the patient. The usual treatment of these non-healing wounds is through IV administration of antibiotics, which may cause damage to the liver or kidneys. According to Robert Winston, M. D., using a transdermal delivery system allows antibiotic dosage 40 to 60 times greater than achieved by IV administration, without the danger of liver or kidney damage. Winston uses emu oil in his product, Wound Tech.

"When developing Wound Tech, I chose to use emu oil to assist with the transdermal delivery because it is faster than anything else on the market,” stated Dr. Winston. “It also reduces the inflammation, which helps speed healing.” He went on to say that Wound Tech acts as a moisturizer and provides nutrition, vitamins, trace elements, anti-oxidants to the wound, along with antibiotics, which are added to the product by the physician at the time of treatment.

Winston discussed the new product during the 2008 Emu Oil Seminar for Medical Professionals held at the Holiday Inn East, Harrisburg, PA. As part of their mandate to educate the public about the uses of emu oil, the American Emu Association (AEA) sponsored the event on July 19, 2008. The seminar was held in conjunction with the annual American Emu Association National Convention. "We were delighted to be able to host this event which allowed the first hand sharing of emu oil experiences among health care providers," stated AEA Board Member, I. Michael Eppley. This is the third year that an Emu Oil Seminar for Medical Professionals has been held during the annual convention.

As a Board Certified Internal Medicine Practitioner, the Tennessee physician has practiced medicine for over 25 years. Dr. Winston enjoys staff privileges at Regional Hospital of Jackson, Jackson-Madison County General Hospital and Meharry Medical College Dept. of Continuing Education.

Plans are currently underway to hold a fourth Emu Oil Seminar for Medical Professionals during the 2009 American Emu Association National Convention. The convention will be held in Orlando, FL.
