What is Apitherapy?

Apitherapy is the use of Bee Products (such as honey, pollen, venom, etc.) for medicinal purposes. Bee products, rich in antioxidants and antibacterial properties, have many unique and beneficial uses.

Honey, used to successfully treat wounds in antiquity, resurfaces today in modern day hospitals, where it eliminates superbugs when prescribed antibiotics fail. Approved by the FDA in June 2007, honey helps heal chronic wounds, such as diabetic ulcers and MRSA infections.

While most people fear stings, some actually seek them out for relief. Numerous people swear bee venom helps alleviate the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Arthritis.

According to the American Apitherapy Society "Apitherapy is as old as beekeeping itself." The father of modern medicine, Hippocrates wrote about the benefits of honey, bee venom and propolis, a sticky glue-like resin bees gather from tree buds. The Bible, the Torah, the Koran, and the Vedas all mention curing properties of honey bee products. 

Although its roots lie far back in our history, apitherapy continues to be used today to treat a wide range of conditions and diseases. Many people consume bee products to enhance their general health, level of energy and well-being. In some European countries, the medical profession recognizes apitherapy as an approved treatment.

Many cultures see the six sided hexagonal shape of the honey comb as a symbol of stability and prosperity. It thus seems fitting that bees produce six products: honey, beeswax, pollen, propolis, royal jelly, and bee venom.  To learn more about each one, follow the links below.
