Step 1 - MultiOmega Gel Caps
Step 2 - Topical Pain Relief Cream
Frequently Asked Questions.
How soon will I feel pain relief?
Step 1 DuoFlex Multi-Omega
Gel caps give most people relief from inflammation within 3-4 days. However,
depending upon the depth of deficiencies of EFA's in your system and in your
diet it may take a couple of weeks before you notice results. Many people find
that the changes are so subtle they don't recognize them until they suddenly
realize that "aching spot" just doesn't ache like it used to – or
they just did some activity or movement that "used to" make them hurt
and now doesn't. But the results of the Multi-Omegas are so far reaching,
wide-spread and long term that we shouldn't discount them because they take
more time to work.
That's where Step 2 comes in. Applying the DuoFlex Topical
Pain Relief formula will give you results within minutes. The Menthol will very
quickly work to redirect your nerves to send an overriding message of
"coolness" to the brain in place of the pain message it was sending.
Then the Emu Oil and other ingredients will begin to relieve the inflammation,
increase the blood flow and boost overall tissue health.
How often do I have to use these products?
Multi-Omegas should be taken once a day (2 gel caps) and it's best done 30
minutes before or 30 minutes after taking other supplements, medications or
food to ensure the optimum absorption into the digestive track and blood
system. DuoFlex Topical Pain Cream should initially be applied at least twice a
day. Recommended before going to bed at night so that you can get a good
night's sleep and first thing in the morning to get the blood flowing and the
muscles loosening and relaxing. If you are experiencing continuous, deep pain
apply the cream as needed up to 4 times in a 24 hour period. Additional
application may cause skin irritation. The reduced pain and increased mobility
from the cream will build over time. When you have achieved a plateau of pain
relief – start to decrease the applications. Most people will find over time
that they need less and less of the Topical cream (as long as they continue
with the Gel Caps) and will only need to apply it if they overwork the area.
Are there any harmful side effects?
This is our favorite
question. To date there are no known harmful side effects from either of these
products. There is one area of possible concern though that should be discussed
with your Doctor. If you are taking any blood-thinners like Coumadin you should
be aware that essential fatty acids can thin the blood as well as reduce
cholesterol and triglyceride levels. At these dosages the results will not be
sudden – but you will want to share this information so that your Doctor can
monitor changes and possibly decrease other medications over time. There are in
addition many, many healthy side-effects.

Will this interact with any of my current medications?
are no known interactions however we do recommend that you check with your
Doctor first. If you are taking anti-coagulants continue to test your blood
levels regularly under your Doctors supervision because Essential Fatty Acids
thin blood naturally.
What do all these natural ingredients do?
Emu Oil - the
first and foremost natural ingredient in these applications has a number of
properties. In Step 1 its naturally occurring Omega 3, 6 and 9 Fatty acids and
ATP work to relieve inflammation from the inside-out (without the worry of
mercury contamination and fish-burps that Fish Oils carry) as well as boost
many other body functions to ensure greater overall health. In Step 2 it works
the same to relieve inflammation and additionally as a superior trans-dermal
delivery system to transport the other natural ingredients through the skin and
into your system.
Arnica herb - commonly called leopard's bane. Arnica works
by stimulating the activity of white blood cells that perform much of the
digestion of congested blood, and by dispersing trapped, disorganized fluids
and bruised tissue, joints and muscles. This homeopathic medicine
has been used for hundreds of years to reduce inflammation and decrease pain.
– genus of plants which produce fruit known as
chili peppers. Seeds from the chili peppers contain a compound called Capsaicin
which causes a warming sensation. Capsaicin works by depleting your nerve cells
of a chemical called substance P, which is important for sending pain messages
from trauma, arthritis and muscle or cartilage problems to your brain. Reduce
substance P and reduce the pain signal.
- contains a number of bioactive
steroid-like compounds which have anti-inflammatory properties. A recent report
indicated that pro-inflammatory mediators were inhibited by these compounds.
The report further went on to report that these were attractive molecules to
study as a potential anti-arthritic agent.
- an organic and naturally
occurring form of sulfur. It is an essential mineral meaning one which your
body cannot produce and must be brought in through diet. MSM plays an important
role in tissue structure and cell permeability allowing oxygen into the cell
and toxins out.
- contains salicylic acid which lowers the
body's levels of prostaglandins, hormone like compounds that can cause aches,
pain, and inflammation. Witch Hazel Extract – long used by Native Americans to
relieve swelling and pain. Recent studies indicated that compounds isolated
from witch hazel inhibited inflammatory mediators. When these "mediator
compounds" were quelled, so was inflammation.
Do I have to use this product forever?
Because of all of the
health benefits to be derived from increasing your intake of Essential Fatty
Acids we believe that you should consider taking the DuoFlex Multi-Omega Gel
Caps forever or at least for an extended period of time. It is our greatest
hope and we will look forward to working with you further to insure that
through the short term use of the DuoFlex Topical Pain Relief Product and an
increased focus on lifestyle choices such as diet, exercise and stress
management you will not need to use the Topical Cream for long. You will
probably always want to have some on hand for tough days, short term injuries
or just to warm up muscles and joints before heavy activity. As you continue
with your automatic delivery you will be able to adjust the amount of DuoFlex
Topical Pain Cream shipped according to your specific needs.
Hear what our customers have to say!
"I have been using Emu products purchased from Songline for
over three years. Initially I got the pure Emu oil for tendonitis and elbow
joint pain, both subsided in about 6 mos, applying morning and night. I have
since used same for burns and surgical scars from skin cancer. Early this year
I started with the DuoFlex 2 part, prior to foot surgery to remove bone spurs
in both feet. I believe my recovery time was cut in half, walking rigorously in
three weeks. My surgeon was quite impressed that a 63 year old who had been
dealing with bone spurs for 20 years would make such a rapid recovery. I
continue to take the triple omega and apply pure Emu oil to the scars which
have all but vanished. I firmly believe in alternative therapies; acupuncture,
chiropractic, herbal supplements etc.; proper balance diet to maintain an
active lifestyle. I have meant to write to Songline for sometime, but have been
quick to share my success with Emu products to family and friends, who have
since enjoyed same" Jennifer, Chicago
