Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
there is no way to extract been venom from your body
but you can get shots to help desensitize you to the bee venom over time
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8703250
is an article about it.
it sounds like you have gotten shots before.
you might need steroids to help suppress your immune system when you have these bee stings.
you might have to try to find a clinical trail studying patients with severe bee allergies
let me know if you have questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
