There IS a cure for brown recluse Spider Bites! In the fall of 2007 I suffered three brown recluse spider bites. One on the back of my arm, one near my eye, and a third on my foot. These bites seem like nothing at first then over the course of a few days become extremely inflamed and necrotic tissue can develop. For those who don't know, the brown recluse spider bite is among the most serious of spider bites. It usually causes tissue necrosis (death) resulting in huge gaping sores several inches across going down into the muscle tissue. Reports of amputations due to the bites are fairly frequent.
At first I didn't realize what the bites were. Although I will use commercial drugs, I prefer to try supplements first, due to well known drug side effects. This paid off for me big time with the bites, determining the effective diagnosis and cure as there is no cure for these bites in allopathic medicine that I am aware of after doing internet searches.
I awoke one morning with an itchy swollen eye. I tried taking a combination of curcumin, quercetin, and bromelain capsules. These three anti-inflammatory supplements worked to keep the swelling down but I had to take them frequently to keep it under control. The following afternoon, when the swelling had not gone down as quickly as I had hoped, I went to an urgent care clinic. The MD there tried to convince me that these were not bites but a case of shingles emerging and wanted me to start treatments for shingles with him. Fortunately, I disagreed with his diagnosis pointing out inconsistencies in the diagnosis, especially the lack of a rash elsewhere, and history of a previous bite. Eventually, he perscribed prednisone and Clarinex and a topical steroid.
I stopped the curcumin and bromelain and took the drugs instead. The next morning my eye was FAR WORSE nearly swollen shut! I returned to taking the curcumin and bromelain and made an appointment with an alternative medicine doc who specializes in stings and bites. He gave me an IV of Meyers cocktail (a vitamin and mineral mix) and said the severe swelling and bite would disappear in 7 hours and it did! Completely! This was no fluke. I had the same results a couple weeks later with the third bite on my foot.
I shudder to think what would have happened if I had accepted the urgent care doc's diagnosis of shingles and subsequent (mis)treatment. If the bites had not been intercepted by alternative means I could have been in really bad shape! And yes, I did find and identify brown recluse spiders in the house.
