5 Reasons to Own a Homeopathy Kit (and My Favorite Remedy for Soft Tissue Infections)

Homeopathy Remedy KitIn one of my most recent blogs, I told the story of a late-night drive to my son’s when he called on me for help.

When the call came, I quickly gathered my red Top 100 Remedy kit, a couple of my homeopathy books, a Ball canning jar of my bone broth and off I went.

After administering a few different remedies from my kit, I finally fell asleep in the chair by his bed.

The reason I could fall asleep was that, after six hours, a few missteps and finally the correct remedy, my son, was enough improved that he, too, fell asleep and the worst of his illness was over.

It should be noted that I was able to try a few different remedies because I had my kit.

There is nothing like having healing at your arm’s length.

It was my kit, my son, and me. (A few prayers too.)


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.

Bug Bites and Homeopathy


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.
