Apitherapy or Bee Venom Therapy (BVT)
Bee Venom for centuries has been thought to have a beneficial effect in the treatment of arthiritis, and is partially based on the observation that beekeepers are seldom afflicted.
While venom treatment is the most publicized component of apitherapy, there is a growing number of studies confirming the healing quality of honey when used for wounds. Propolis, manufactured by bees starting with the resins of new or damaged plants and then mixed with pollen, enzymes and wax, has been found in laboratory tests to contain antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties.
Currently under investigation is the potential benefit in some instances of Muscular Sclerosis (MS) and in the desensitization of hypersensitive individuals. The selections below are being provided to assist you to follow up on your interest in these areas.
