Homeopathic Bee Venom Remedy Used to Treat Teething

Old Fashioned Teething Remedies
By Robin O'Brien, American Chronicle, 9/24/2007

Homeopathic remedies can be a safe, non-toxic way to help relieve the pain of teething. However, you should only use a homeopathic remedy in conjunction with expert advice and guidance. First discovered in 1835, by the Rev. Brauns, in Thuringia, Germany, Apis mellifica has been used to ease teething discomfort. Apis mellifica actually means whole honey bee. It became popular due to its ease of preparation and because it just seemed to work. Over the succeeding years, the preparation has gone through several changes to improve its efficacy.

These improvements involved the introduction and use of Apium virus (removed venom sack) and later Apis Venenum Purum (pure bee venom). You can still buy this preparation today. Other homeopathic products can also be bought, Hyland’s Teething Tablets being the most well known.
