What is Apitherapy?

APITHERAPY, or "bee therapy" (from the Latin apis which means bee) is the medicinal use of products made by honeybees.  Products of the Honeybee include bee venom, honey, pollen, royal jelly, propolis, and beeswax.

Some of the conditions treated (not in any special order) are:  multiple sclerosis, arthritis, wounds, pain, gout, shingles, burns, tendonitis, and infections.

Therapies involving the honeybee have existed for thousands of years and some may be as old as human medicine itself.  The ancient rock art of early hunter-gatherers depicts the honeybee as a source of natural medicine.  Bee venom therapy was practiced in ancient Egypt, Greece, and Chine - three Great Civilizations known for their highly developed medical systems.  Hippocrates, the Greek physician known as the "Father of Medicine," recognized the healing virtues of bee venom for treating arthritis and other joint problems.  Today, growing scientific evidence suggests that various bee products promote healing by improving circulation, decreasing inflammation, and stimulating a healthy immune response.
