Imagine this scenario without effective treatments, such as homeopathic remedies for stings:
Your outside with a couple of friends hiking through a forest. The sky is beautiful, the trees are majestic, and the air is fresh. As your traveling along the path that you’re embarking on, you hear a faint buzzing sound.
You continue walking. You again hear again the same sound, but now it’s growing louder and louder
And then, you feel a little, stingy nibble on your skin. You just got stung!
What do you do?
A Brief Overview of Animal and Insect Stings & Bites
Animal and insect stings and bites are actually more common than we think and are caused by actually more types of animals and insects than we believe.
According to the World Health Organization (W.H.O.):
- Animal bites and stings are one of the biggest causes of diseases and death in the world
- About 5 million people are bitten by snakes every year, the majority of which include residents of Southeast Asia and Africa
- Poisonous venom bites require immediate emergency treatment
- Tens of millions of people worldwide are bitten by dogs; most victims include children.
- Rabies is one of the most critical health concerns we face today, besides for animal bites.
The extent of animal bites depends on the type of animal and species that is attacking the person. The most common animal bites nowadays usually occur via dogs, cats, snakes, and even monkeys.
Some will simply result in an injury, some will result in contract an illness or disease such as rabies, and some may be fatal, such as certain snake bites.
Additionally, men, women and children are medically and psychologically affected each year by animal and insect bites and stings, and thousands are deaths are reported each year. The vast majority of deaths are caused by poisonous snake venom bites, which as mentioned above, are most common in parts of Asia and Africa.
As is commonly known, if one is allergic to certain insects such as bees, or does not momentarily treat an infected area from an insect bite, it can lead to dire consequences and possibly death, Heaven forbid.
In any fatal emergency, one MUST seek emergency hospital aid as soon as possible!!
Homeopathy vs Stings = Great Results!
For any acute, non-fatal bites and stings homeopathy offers several acute remedies for a range of different types of bites and stings, depending on the origin of the attack and the person’s individual symptoms.

Unless recommended otherwise by a professional homeopath, all of the following acute remedies should be administered consistently at a 30c.
Here are the acute homeopathic remedies for stings as well as bites:
Derived from the western/European honey bee, Apis is effective for when the bite or sting gives off a hot, red, swelling sensation. Apis of the most commonly used acute remedies for bites and stings.

Cedron, which is derived from the rattlesnake bean, is a prominent acute remedy used for snake bites of all sorts.
Lachesis is derived from the South American pit viper, known to be extremely venomous. Like few other snakes, the pit viper has huge fangs can be controlled by its neck.

Alternatively, a person needing Lachesis will feel worse when clothing or other objects constrict around the neck.
Lachesis should also be considered when there is either a blue or purple swelling in the area of the bite or sting.

Silica, as an acute remedy, is nicknamed as a “Homeopathic scalpel.” It can remove any foreign physical entities of any sort out of a person’s body. Anything that intrudes into the body can get pushed out.
