Antivenomous Herbs

Antivenomous herbs used as antidotes to animals, vegetables and mineral poisons or agents that counteract venom as from a snake bite, and poisonous stings (bees, wasps, scorpions) and bites (spider).

Antivenom is produced naturally when a small amount of venom is injected into an animal; the immune system responds to the venom by producing specialized antibodies: small proteins designed to counteract the effects of the toxic proteins in venom.

Western medicine has relied on the process of scientists collecting the antibodies from animals and using them to treat people who have been bitten by a venomous animal. Because each type of venom produces a slightly different immune response and therefore a slightly different antibody, we only have a handful of antivenoms available for use on humans. A huge variety of toxins may lead to many different effects on your body, depending on what kind of cells they target.

Antivenomous herbs work entirely differently and are more likely indicated for less serious and non-life threatening situations where the body's natural antibodies are allowed and encouraged to do their work. Certain herbs known as 'blood cleansers', improve the immunity of the person, thereby reducing conditions related to venomous sting and bites. Antibiotic herbs are useful in inhibiting the growth of germs, harmful microbes and bacteria associated with bites and stings.

Antivenomous herbs and herbs with an antivenomous property that relieves bites and draws out poisons from the body include
