The Wellness Shop Presents Biteaway

The Wellness Shop Presents Biteaway,A Heat-Based Natural Remedy That Instantly Relieves Insect Bites

Online Health Store and Portal Offers Compact,Easy-to-Use,Fast-Acting Medical Device Dermatologically Tested to be 100%Safe and Reliable

Waiheke Island,Auckland,New Zealand – The Wellness Shop www.Wellness-,an online health store and portal providing a wide range of natural health products and information,today announced that it is offering Biteaway,a safe and natural remedy that uses the principle of heat to relieve the annoying problem of insect bites and stings.Manufactured in Europe,this compact device will now be sold to consumers and distributors worldwide through The Wellness Shop web site.

Using concentrated heat placed on the specific area that has been affected,Biteaway helps remove the protein from the bite or sting venom that causes pain,irritation or allergic reactions.It contains a single-chip thermostat that is heated to approximately 50 °C —the temperature at which insect protein molecules has been shown to become decomposed — thus helping neutralize the bite or sting venom.

The patented Biteaway apparatus works in just three seconds to alleviate the bite along with any itching,swelling or soreness that has occurred.The heat in the device provides immediate relief for many types of insect bites and stings,including bees,wasps,ants, horseflies,mosquitoes,gnats and others.In doing so,Biteaway precludes the use of first aid treatments such as ointments,creams or cold compresses,which have traditionally been used to treat bites and stings.

“Although most insect bites and stings are not inherently dangerous,everyone knows how irritating and even painful they can be,” said Toby Ruckert,co-founder of the Wellness Shop.

“With Biteaway,you get a safe,natural,painless remedy that works in just three seconds to stop a bite from itching or swelling —even helping reduce the risk of infections and allergic reactions.”

The device can be used either immediately after a bite has occurred or several hours afterwards to produce effective results.When applied directly after the event,it actually prevents the bite from causing itching or swelling.If it is used later,the device will still help minimize the resulting itching and swelling,and will cause the bite to eventually disappear.

Biteaway contains a built-in safety device that turns the instrument off once it has reached the proper temperature.And unlike other insect bite apparatuses,Biteaway is hygienic,so it does not cause any wounds or scars,and there is never a chance of infection.The device has been dermatologically tested,is chemical-free and does not have any side effects. “With summer coming,people wear less clothing and are more susceptible to insect bites,” said Margit Brusda,co-founder and health consultant for the Wellness Shop

.“Biteaway is the ideal product to keep oneself prepared.And because it emits an acoustic signal,the user knows exactly how long he or she needs to apply the device to ensure its effectiveness, so there is no guesswork involved.”
