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.
