Ouch! I Got Stung!

What to do when confronted with a bee sting?

Turn to Ledum  & Apis*-these are premier bee sting remedies. If there’s coldness to the site, but ironically, the stung area feels better with cold, look to Ledum 30. The protocol is to give one dose, every 1-2 hours, until improvement or for up to 3 days.

Apis, on the other hand, is perfect for stung areas that are warm to the touch, burning, red and swollen.  The swelling might also be edematous and remote.  That is, if the sing is on the foot, the ears may swell. Try 1 dose every 1-2 hours, until improvement or for up to 3 days.

You may also administer two cell salts: Ferr phos 6x and Kali mur 6x, every 1- 2 hours, until improvement. Use these on alternating hours from Ledum or Apis.

Remember, if the reaction is severe or if there is anaphylaxis, seek medical care immediately. Along the way, administer the appropriate remedy.  Generally, Apis in a high potency is best suited for allergic reactions.

*Pregnant women in the first trimester should not take Apis repeatedly.

 

I am a homeopath with a worldwide practice working with families and individuals via Zoom. I'm also a teacher and most importantly, a mom who raised my now-adult children depending on homeopathy over the last 31 years. I lived decades of my life with food intolerances, allergies, and chemical sensitivities until I was cured with homeopathy, so I understand pain, anxiety, and suffering. You may feel that your issues are more severe or different than anyone else’s, but I have seen it all in my practice and in my work in India. My opinion is that nothing has come close to the reproducible, safe and effective results that my clients, students and I have achieved with homeopathy.

Call today and learn how homeopathy might just be the missing piece in your health strategy.

It is fully the client's choice whether or not to take advantage of the information Joette presents. Homeopathy doesn't "treat" an illness; it addresses the entire person as a matter of wholeness that is an educational process, not a medical one. Joette believes that the advice and diagnosis of a physician is often in order.

    My mother always used to put a white paste all over our bee stings when I was younger. It wasn’t until recently that I found out it was baking soda & water mixed together as a paste! So simple & right from the kitchen!

    Glad to learn now — that I have a Homeopathic means to care for my stings too! Thanks for sharing!

    being very allergic i was told to do that paste with meet tenderizer. don’t know if it helped. always just took benadril or such. Have just gotten 200c apis for hubby who is worse with it. told him take it and was going to say and head for H but he said it before I could. lol need to get me some as soon as store gets more.

  5. Carla says:

    Does this work for wasp stings? My son is allergic.

      It’s specific for stings of all insects. Allergic reactions might need to be approached from a more personalized approach. I cover this fully in my course “Allergic!”
