Homeopathy for bug bites and bee stings

Your outdoor fun can be disrupted by a variety of insects including ants, bees, black flies, chiggers, fleas, horse flies, mosquitos, spiders, ticks, and wasps. Homeopathic remedies can decrease the pain and swelling of a bite as well as lessen your chances of being bitten in the first place.bees in hive

If you experience an intense allergic reaction—including but not limited to
• Difficulty breathing or swallowing
• Swollen tongue
• Dizziness
• Generalized Hives
• Pallor
• Rapid pulse
• Chills and shivers
--seek emergency care immediately even if you used an EpiPen.

Otherwise, consult your homeopath about the remedy that most closely matches your symptoms. Possibilities include
• Cedron for stings, particularly if you are prone to headaches.
• Hypericum for stinging feelings from stings, as if the nerves are irritated.
• Ledum palustre for the pain itching and swelling from stings better from cold applications.
• Staphysagria for the redness and swelling from insect bites, with urinary symptoms.
• Urtica urens for itchy hives associated with bites

If you are planning outdoor activities, be proactive. A small dose of a homeopathic remedy taken before your outdoor adventure may minimize your desirability to pests. Unlike some insect repellants, homeopathic treatments are
• Safe for children, adults, and pets
• Free of harmful chemicals
• Easy to use
• Odor–free

Wouldn’t you like to be free from the nuisance of bug-bites?
