How to never again get attacked by an insect (black flies, mosquitoes, horse flies, even lice)

I've been exercising and working outdoors all spring, in clouds of black flies, and I don't have a single bite. In a normal year, my face, neck and arms would be covered in red welts that itch and burn and swell, in spite of wearing long sleeves AND a ridiculous hat made of netting that the bugs always infiltrate.  (Once you've got a black fly INSIDE your net hat, you're just a big meat sandwich to that little dork.)

But this year I've been using a Canadian homeopathic preparation called Mozi-Q (one small tablet dissolved under the tongue a few minutes before going outside).

I have no bites. They don't even LAND.  Horse flies, mosquitoes, black flies, deer flies.  Apparently it even works on lice and bed bugs. The homeopathic effect is so thorough that you'll think irrational thoughts like, "Well, maybe the bugs just aren't biting this year."  

Then you'll make your friends try it.  And when they come back to you and say, "My god, I don't have a single bite, even after gardening all weekend", you'll maybe start to believe it really IS working.  

I've given it to 3 people besides me and they all said the same thing, "My god, I don't have a single bite!" 

So if you're suffering with the bugs this season, give Mozi-Q a try. (where to buy)

P.S. I've been using homeopathic treatments for 30 years and even took courses in homeopathy because it's such a fascinating and cool science.  Homeopathic remedies are prescribed extensively in England by physicians. The members of the royal family are huge fans of homeopathy. You can read about the origins of homeopathy in the lovely little book, "Heal Thyself" by Dr. Edward Bach. (available as a free PDF

To the extent this works, it's not the "homeopathic" aspect, which is based upon the absurd idea that the more you dilute something, the stronger it gets. (No wonder it is "safe": the resulting goo sold is indistinguishable from the solvent.)

You don't know till you try it.

Mag, this is so interesting, thanks for sharing! I know there is definitely something from inside that either attracts or repels insects and that fascinates me! Happens ever summer: my family goes camping with my parents and two of us come home covered in welts that itch like crazy and last for weeks, some of us come home with a bite or two, and me...I'm the one who comes home with not even a single bite! For some unknown reason! We use the same outer products such as soap and shampoo, so it's gotta be something internal about our body chemistry. This homeopathic approach makes perfect sense to me. :)

To be exercising and working outdoors all spring, in clouds of black flies, and not have a single bite. Without; Red welts that itch and burn and swell, in spite of wearing long sleeves AND bug spray. OK!
