Summer is almost upon us. Long sunny days to enjoy many outside activities of sports and leisure. These activities are often hampered, however, by the many creepy, crawly, flying critters that share our summer days and often cause us injury or discomfort! Commercial bug sprays and medications often carry many dangers, but homeopathy can easily come to the rescue in the event of an insect bite or sting.
Let us first look at the most broadly capable insect remedy, Ledum pall. It covers the reactions from the stings and bites of all bees, mosquitoes and ticks, as well as unidentified crawly creatures. It eliminates pain and the nasty swelling as well as remote swelling from allergic reactions. Ledum has been shown to reduce the reaction even in an allergic person. In fact, in the compendium of homeopathic medical literature, it has been credited for having reversed anaphylaxis reactions.
However, not all reactions to stings are alike. Occasionally, the site of the sting is hot and puffy in an edematous way. This would be a call for the remedy Apis mell instead of Ledum. Generally, Apis mell is the second choice, but if the site has a look as though the area is holding water, then Apis is the better remedy to begin with. If, after choosing a remedy that appears to be insufficiently addressing the problem, give the next best remedy. Do this after at least 3 doses have been tried.
Make homeopathy your family’s choice of health care and creepy, crawly creatures will no longer threaten the fun of summer.
