We went to BD’s Mongolian Barbeque for my birthday lunch, and boy was it tasty. Sometimes it is hard to find Paleo friendly food at restaurants, so it was great to make a giant bowl of meat and veggies fried up to perfection with the sauce of my choice.
While enjoying my tasty creation, I noticed my oldest son developing a rash around his mouth while he was eating. We all kind of took notice of his face getting red and blotchy. I remembered that as a baby on his allergy test, he was sensitive to shellfish. While there was none in his lunch, the grill is a common area for cooking, and some residuals must have gotten in his meal.
Ironically, I had just opened my birthday present from my sister, and she had given me a new homeopathy emergency kit. From past experience, I knew that Apis was the go-to remedy for swelling and redness resembling a bee-sting.
Apis is made from heavily diluted bee venom. Read more about how remedies are made here. In homeopathy, “like cures like” so if bee venom would cause redness and swelling, if you have redness and swelling, apis will complete the cure.
I grabbed my birthday present, opened it up, and diluted one pillule in some water and gave him a sip. In less than 15 minutes, you could hardly tell he had a reaction. An hour later we gave him a follow-up dose, and he was completely fine the rest of the day.
Another example that HOMEOPATHY WORKS!!
I didn’t think to take a close up picture of his face at the time, but I zoomed in on a picture of him that we took before we realized what was going on. You can see the redness forming around his mouth and lips.
Apis is also a primary remedy for any insect sting or bite resembling a bee sting with red, puffy skin, and in anaphylaxis from any source resulting in swelling of the throat. Read my article about treating bug bites and stings here.
