Apis is a homeopathic remedy from bee venom it is used for
swelling from insect bites or allergies. Things that respond well
to Apis tend to be better with cold and worse with heat kind

have been used for many years. They are very popular in England
the Queens doctor is a homeopath. Homeopathics fell
out of favor with the rise of allopathy around the time penicillin
was introduced. However, they are making a comeback because they
are safe and effective. Another factor that makes homeopathics popular
is that they work within minutes.
There is a
homeopathic remedy for just about every condition known to man.
If you pick the right one, you will be amazed at the results; however,

references to help you match the symptom specifics to the right
remedy. Best of all, the single remedies cost $6.99
