Healing From Insect Bites

Insect bites-such as mosquito and spider bites or bee stings-can be concerning for many people. Some fears are justified, since some bites and stings can be fatal if untreated. Although this is rare, it can still be frightening.

However, insect bites are a reality of life. It is impossible to eliminate the possibility of ever getting another bite or sting. Fortunately, just like with everything else related to sickness, disease, and injury, there’s a natural remedy for insect bites and stings.

Before we get to natural remedies, here are a few explanations why some insects bite people.

Why Insects Bite People

Believe it or not, insects pick up on your energy. If you are fearful, then you are asking to be bit. Your fear of the insect attracts them to you. If you try to wave it away, it increasing the likelihood of getting bitten or stung, simply because the insect feels it needs to protect itself. If you remain calm and still, you have a much lower chance of getting bit.

Just like with animals, insects are just as afraid of us as we are of them. But these creatures too can pick up on energetic vibrations that we can send out with our 6th chakra.

Like with animals, we can communicate with insects too, if we believe we can. By opening yourself up spiritually, you make it possible to communicate thoughts and feelings without using words. Animals and insects can recognize and respond to the emotions you are emitting.

Healing Naturally From Insect Bites

After you have been bitten or stung by an insect, run cold or warm water on the bite. Take a Q-tip or a wet cloth and apply tea tree oil to the wound/bite. Let the area naturally dry.

Never use isopropyl alcohol as it’s a petroleum-based product. Tea tree oil is always a better choice. Also, though doctors are known prescribe antibiotics for insect bites, it’s not recommended since the drugs can create side-effects worse than the bite or sting.

Apply bentonite clay (which should be wet and moist) to the wound and let it dry. Let the clay stay on for a few hours (applying retouches of the clay throughout the day as need be). If bentonite clay isn’t easily available, try an all-natural, chemical-free toothpaste.

The area of the insect bite may swell minutes or hours after the initial bite or sting and this okay and normal. Your body is simply reacting to the bite or sting and has begun the defense/healing process. Apply ice to help remove the ‘heat’ from the sting and to reduce redness around the affected area.

Drink a glass of water with a teaspoon of activated charcoal, which will help to draw out toxins. Continue to drink at least 3 liters of water a day to flush out other toxins that accumulate in the body.

Most importantly, think positively. You will be all right! Believe that!

If you are bitten or stung by a poisonous snake or a scorpion, you’ll need to seek allopathic medical assistance as this profession specializes in poison (posionopathy) and they collect poisonous snake venom for homeopathic reasons and purposes.

And if you have any questions or concerns about possible poisons, it is always appropriate to call a poison control hotline or your doctor. Although the bite is probably not too harmful (especially if you follow the natural healing recommendations), it is always better to be safe than sorry.

Be careful in areas that are known for having lots of insects. Don’t wear perfume or scented deodorant-they attract bugs of all kinds. Wear clothing with long sleeves, pants or long skirts to help protect your skin.

But after reading this article, you should feel prepared to tackle any situation, and empowered to live your life in the way you want – regardless of insect behaviors!

    Q: I have a situation. I am allergic to shrimp (yes insects of the sea), and even though I don't eat them. I was told that this is due to the high amount of iodide in shrimp, etc. At one point I was told that I have an over active Thyroid as well. My question to you is, if one needs Iodide to balance out an overactive thyroid but they are allergic to Iodide how can this be solved without causing discomfort?

    A:

    Natural iodine will not cause a problem with human health, only man-made (unnatural) pharmaceutical iodine. The Matrix has really confused us, beloved. Let us turn back to Nature!

    Any thyroid condition can be fixed with natural iodine (Iodine Phosphate) which we sell at Dherbs!

    Q: Good Morning, hope all is well. My 11 yr. old son has a serious problem! The skin between his toes on both feet are peeling, and he has sores. The rest of his feet look fine. Also, on his arms & legs he has black spots. As if he had a mosquito bite, and scratched it. But that's not the case. What is this? I've tried tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar, and a cream from our local herb store for his feet. To this day nothing has helped. I don't give him meds from our so-called doctors. However, I am considering taking him to get a diagnosis. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thanking you in advance and have a wonderful day!

    A:

    Please read the article on our site entitled "Skin Disorder = Blood Disorder" as your son is dealing with a blood disorder. Let his feet breathe which can be done by allowing him to wear sandals, or open air shoes. Allow him to soak his feet in warm water with about half a cup of sea salt, and 1 ounce of hydrogen peroxide (for about 30 minutes). After the soak, rub his feet down and in-between his toes with our Healing Skin Oil. Perform daily! Consider having the child completing the Children's Liquid Cleanse.

    Q: Thanks for your response. I forgot to mention that he stepped on a carpet nail, which created a small puncture wound on his right foot several weeks ago. His doctor has him on antibiotics. The wound continues to drain and is foul smelling. I want to mention this so you can get a clear picture of what is happening. However he had problems with water retention in this leg due to renal problems way before the injury. He feels the injury made it worse. Are there any specific juices or poultices which would speed healing? Thanks for all your help. I have been reading all your articles and information with interest.

    A:

    Country Comfort makes a great healing salve. Or, make some Comfrey Root tea and let him soak his feet in the tea (while tea is warm).

    Q: Hi I am back. Thanks for your article and herbs. I have 10 days left on my Detoxing and I am feeling good. I can't wait to take the FIBRIOD BUSTER CLEANSE AND REGIME. I also want to ask you about the French green clay and the Moroccan red clay that is mentioned on your site. I break out alot and because of that I use a lot of makeup. I always wear foundation to cover the bumps and spots. I would love to get this product so please let me know where I can purchase it. I just want to go natural like I use to. Years ago I had a healthy head of hair now it's thinning out. Please let me know if this will help me.

    A:

    These clays are not yet available but will be very soon. Right now, go to a good health food store and purchase Bentonite Clay and use this clay on your face which will really help you. We have a facial skin healing kit coming out soon! Stay tuned to Dherbs. Try our HEALING SKIN OIL and OZ OILon your face. They're very therapeutic!

    Q: Unfortunately, we never got a chance to begin the FULL BODY DETOX because the wound became badly infected and he was hospitalized and given large doses of i.v. Antibiotics to control the infection. After a week of this, he was discharged with an oral antibiotic, levaquin, to continue taking with also a wound-vac attached to the huge gapping hole in his leg. This machine sucks out the extra fluid and infectious material which, according to them, will assist in tissue regeneration thus closing and healing on its own without performing a 3rd surgery to try and close it. HERE LIES THE PROBLEM, as a result of the poisons, he's developed an oral thrush and a rash in his groin area. Keep in mind that before now, he's a man who would never take any drugs not even an aspirin and even refused the pain killers post surgery. One of your customer service reps advised to move forward with the FULL BODY DETOX 1st before I proceed to order the : CANDIDA BUSTER. He also advised to check with you on this approach. Additionally, what do you think of using a colloidal silver to assist with killing off any infectious bugs that may be lingering? He has discontinued the levaquin and all of their completely.

    A:

    I WOULD SUGGEST BEGINNING WITH THE FULL BODY DETOX AND USING THE COLLOIDAL SILVER ONLY AFTER COMPLETING THE FULL BODY DETOX. ONE THING FOR SURE, HE HAS THE RIGHT FRAME OF MIND. SOUNDS LIKE HE'LL BE ALL RIGHT IF HE PERFORMS THE NATURAL THINGS AND ENTIRELY LEAVE THE DRUGS ALONE!

    Q: Unfortunately my child did get vaccinated due mostly in part to my ignorance to the law. I must admit the administration wore me down with the threats and medical exam fee that kept stating that their immunization was low. I don't believe the hype!!! I did give them charcoal and Bentonite clay right after the shots. I also took them both off of the meats and dairy completely (as we were transitioning into a raw food diet). They are looking at me long faced now but I believe that they will appreciate it later. :-) What I can take from this experience as a learning lesson and help others that maybe in a similar situation and simply do not know what to do. All the information that you have on your website is amazing (I am a Dherbs junkie). You said it best that knowledge is power and I truly understand that statement now. Thank you for all that you do and just know that your works are appreciated.

    A:

    Did you read our article on â€THE DANGERS OF VACCINATIONS†I have created a NEW vaccine waiver kit that folks will be able to order from Dherbs and give to all administrations. It includes an affidavit of objection, an affidavit to the nurse assuming 100% full responsibility for the inoculation, and a request for chemical ingredient of the vaccine. Have the child perform CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) too (within the next 30 days). Stay strong and move forward more knowledgeable than you were.

    Q: I recently considered the possibility that I might have epididymitis from an untreated STD. If this is the case, than the situation has progressed for a couple of years. I read a post in the Q&A section about problems, which resulted from excessive masturbation. The symptoms described are similar to the ones I have experienced, but also my symptoms are similar to ones I have researched as a result of epididymitis from an untreated STD. Because of the possible effects of the condition and my reluctance to seek help, which is probably why I am in the situation, I am even more reluctant to seek medical attention now. But still, I am at the point where I must do something. I am coming to you with this situation because I have tried a few of your products and have respect for your opinion, and there is no one I can get advice from about this. Again, I am reluctant about going to a doctor because I am simply embarrassed and feel like a fool for not dealing with a problem that could have probably been easily solved, which might have now turned into anything.

    A:

    Number one, perform the Full Body Detox first and foremost. After this kit, perform the Total Male Cleanse.

    Secondly, change your diet!

    Thirdly, FORGIVE yourself. Release any regret and other negative emotions as they don't serve you, Beloved! They prevent you from healing. Let go of the past!

    Fourth, THINK POSITIVE! Know that you will be healed and soon!

    Fifth: Try dipping your penis into a bowl of cold (or room temperature) aloe vera GEL to give it some relief.

    There is healing and help for you, Beloved!

    Q: I am committed to taking the FULL BODY DETOX, my husband however, is unable to make frequent restroom stops during his day, he makes deliveries. Is there anything you can suggest for him to use in order to be cleansed? Or does he have to "bite the bullet" so to speak?

    A:

    Have him drink 2 cups of DETOX TEA daily instead. His occupation does not hinder him. You know, he wouldn't be frequenting the bathroom all day (believe it or not) based upon how we formulated the FULL BODY DETOX.

    Q: I was online searching for some natural treatments for hair growth in Black Men when I came across your article. I must say that I believe it was so on point that I decided not to look any further. I'm 44 years of age and started noticing my hair thinning when about 12 years ago. I was one of those that you wrote about in your article chasing a lifestyle that is no longer an interest to me. I did fall into some bad habits that were not good for my health off and on over the past 15 years or so more off than on. My body type I would describe as athletic. I'm tone, and strong when I exercise regularly. I'm about 150lbs @ 5'11". My diet is mostly vegetables but from time to time I feel I have to eat fish or chicken. Not necessarily prepared in the healthiest way I'm sure. I just got out of one of my "on" spells so to speak. Meaning the drinking of beer and cigarettes. I've been smoking and drinking beer now since September 2006 after not having done anything but live healthy for six years before that. As soon as my wife and I came back to the states and started working and runnign again these old destructive habits appeared again in my life. I only blame myself though. Right now my hair and skin suffer from the chemical poisoning from the habits that I just mentioned. I am prepared to take your advice about righteous living to heart and start fresh again. Is there a mild remedy that can work with me to stimulate the re-growth of my hair in the spots where it is balding in that classic balding pattern? I am generally very healthy when I doing right and even now rarely get sick. But my sickness manifest in stress and bad habits to num the pain of having to live this way when don't really want to. I quit the job that I've been working for the past 4 years for that reason and have been blessed to have some time not to grind everyday chasing after money. Now is a crucial time of healing for me, and I must take full advantage of the time. Moderation is in order for whatever you can suggest for me in the way of herbal remedies. I am sure that you can prescribe a simple overall regiment for my overall health based on what I have shared with you with an emphasis on the hair and skin. Again, thank you for writing the article. Call or write. The sooner the better.......Thank You!!

    A:

    I would say first detox with the FULL BODY DETOX and get your diet right CONSISTENTLY! Constantly clean your temple! This is key! Next, perform the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. After this, do a daily regimen of HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, KHEMETIAN GOLD, and MSM SULFUR. Forgive yourself of past self-inflicted harm! Stop worrying about your hair loss. Start visualizing your hair growing back. If you can see it, you will achieve it! The mind is all and problems and remedies begin in the mind! BTW: we offer phone consultations if you're interested.

    Q: Hi, I have been suffering from a dull pain the testicular area for over 2 years now. I have seen 2 urologists that have confirmed that I have enterococcus bacteria in either the prostate of genital area based on semen culture. I have also done testicle ultrasound and CAT scan of the area with good results. One of the urologist said that I have an inflamed prostate (prostitis) there was some varicose veins when ultra sound was done but the urologist continues to give me long term antibiotics. Some my symptoms have been dull pain in the testicular area when I need to have a bowel movement. low energy, moody, memory loss, irritable, confused, brain fog etc. I use to have a health sex drive but now my sex drive is really low. A bit of erectile dysfunction but I think that comes more from having the pain all the time and anxiety. I don't know if this is possible but my penis seems to have reduced in size when erect. The doctor ask me to try some cialis for the ED which I did for a short while but decided I needed something natural because of the long term problems of using those medications. I have had long periods of stress from a bitter business relationship about 2 years ago. My concern is that every time I go to the urologist all they want to do it give me antibiotics and that doesn't seem to be working. I am concern of the other organ damage caused by taking long term antibiotics. Is there an alternative you recommend? I have been looking at your Anti- virus treatment. I am 30 years old.

    A:

    I would suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOXfollowed by the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. Read some of our free health articles too on male reproductive health. Healing begins with knowledge!

    Q: I am in need of cleansing my body and weight removal! (Removal and not loss because I don't want to find it again)! I need to remove about 80 pounds of unhealthy weight from my body and would like to do so in a natural way. I looked at both your Female Cleanse and the Full Body Cleanse, but don't know which is a better option for me to follow right now? I eat a lot of organic foods, I juice (some) but need to increase my water intake (A LOT). I don't drink much soda at all and when I do it is organic carbonated lemonade. I realize carbonated drinks are not good for us and limit how much I drink. My body lets me know when I have eaten something that is not good for me by causing my hands and feet to swell. To reduce this I drink water. I am allergic to wheat and try to stay away from it as much as possible. I have few ailments and have started working out again (cardio and weight training). I also looked at your weight loss products, but thought I should maybe detox first. What do you think? Any assistance you can offer on your products and which ones I should take is of great appreciation.

    A: The best thing for you is the Full Body Cleanse. The Full Body Cleanse will allow you to remove unwanted weight, while also optimizing your entier body so that you can maintain that weight and live a healthier lifestyle.

She owns 2 restaurants in the Chicago area. She's an alternative health practitioner. I've been to her spot in Chicago.

    Q: The supplement that you have for herpes, it's really not a remedy to heal and kill the virus but control it correct? Please I believe that there is some remedy out there that will cure this disease that doctors claim there will never be a cure for. I have the HSV2 I believe in healing so I am hoping I have come to the right place as to a natural healing to take place. I am 26 and it has put a dent in my life as to being in a relationship, I was open and honest with a young man but he slowly drifted away once I broke the news. Please help me. I was willing to travel to see an herbalist but I heard of your sight on Gospel 95.3 and felt it was not a hoax but something real and works.

    A:

    Herpes can be healed if you understand the truth of healing that healing comes from the mind. Please read the following articles because healing starts with knowledge followed by belief: please read these ARTICLES: â€GENITAL HERPES (HSVII)â€, â€IS GENTIAL HERPES REALLY CURABLE?â€, â€HERPES OUTBREAK ON THE BUTTOCKSâ€, â€WOE IS ME I HAD A HERPES OUTBREAK!â€.
