yes, it is a miracle. it doesn't really surprise me though. i saw a thing on TV a few years ago about "bee sting" therapy. supposedly it does wonders for all sorts of ailments and afflictions.

I forgot about that. I remember watching a thing about bee sting therapy too.

I think it's incredible?

Great article though, especially since it was about one of the more deadliest spiders I've ever heard of.

I think I'll always be surprised by healings or partial healings of this nature.

Wow, that's pretty incredible. I wish they'd given more information about the nature of his paralysis in general though. I'd hope that scientists are looking into this recovery to find out if this is something that could assist others. There are so many different medical causes for paralysis that it's hard to tell, without the medical background, if this is a real result of the bite, of if it's a side effect of getting therapy for the bite. Having a couple of friends who are parapeligic, quadraplegic and even affected by stroke, this would be interesting to me.

I've told you many times people, spiders are our friends.. :tu:

If they bite you, don't worry, it's just their way of showing affection.

Some of them can be cute, why....look at this little fella...

Thats simply amazing, Most brown recluse bite victims has the flesh getting eaten away and in some cases will eat an entire leg muscle out forming an abcess so huge its next to impossible to get it to heal, My sister inlaw was bitten on her finger by a recluse a month ago and she still has the abcess trying to heal up, She came close to having her finger amputated because of it, So happy for this man that walks again,

Good find SF

Here are some photos of what a brown recluse bite can cause, NOTE; Not for the weak hearted, It shows open abcesses from the recluse bites,

good god man, i think i would rather not be able to walk :blink: . obviously, i'm kidding. they will mess you up though. a friend of mine's sister got bitten by one 3 or 4 years ago and it was quite an ordeal. it got her good. she STILL has some pretty bad scarring from it.

Maybe they should run some more tests on spider venom and its effects on paralysis.

It makes me wonder how this man took a bite from a recluse and didnt have any tissue damage, Or maybe he did and they just left that part out,

would you choose avoidance of scarring rather than able to walk again?

Those pictures where just examples of what a recluse could do :yes:

When I was younger, my little brother got bit by one right on the side of the face.

Aside from it growing extremely large (looked like a golf ball on the side of his face)

there wasn't any open wounds, the swelling went away, and there wan't any permanent scaring.

I seem to remember reading an article that aprox. 1 in 10 bites are severe cases, depends on how much venum is injected,,

http://ohioline.osu.edu/hyg-fact/2000/2061.html

Bite Symptoms

The physical reaction to a brown recluse spider bite depends on the amount of venom injected and an individual's sensitivity to it. Some people are unaffected by a bite, whereas others experience immediate or delayed effects as the venom kills the tissues (necrosis) at the site of the bite. Many brown recluse bites cause just a little red mark that heals without event. The vast majority of brown recluse bites heal without severe scarring

does a spider bite contain that much hemotoxin to do that kind of damage?!

Yes it can cause that kind of damage if the bite injects enough venum in a person,

See the post just above here about how a recluse bite is more toxic to some than it is to others,

I live in the south of the usa and they are everywhere here along with black widow spiders which is not as bad as a recluse but I check my clothes every time I change,
