Most people associate bees with honey or pollen. But another bee product—bee venom—is used to treat certain illnesses.
We all know about the medicinal effects of bee honey. Tea with honey has long been a remedy of choice for sore throats. And some nutritionists consider bee pollen to be a near perfect source of protein.
Bee venom, however, is looked upon with some trepidation, which is not surprising, given that most people’s only experience is via a painful bee sting. For thousands of years, though, the medicinal benefits of bee venom have been touted throughout the world. And while these medicinal effects have yet to be scientifically proven, the use of bee venom to treat various ailments (called apitherapy) is actively being studied.
Ancient Medicinal Uses
The medicinal use of bee venom dates back to ancient Egypt and is reported in the history of Europe and Asia. Hippocrates used bee venom to treat joint pain and arthritis. In more modern times, interest in the effects of bee venom was renewed in the 1888 with the publication of a clinical study conducted in Europe on its effect on rheumatism. Since then, interest in bee venom treatment has ebbed and flowed.
A review of studies did find that the venom may show some promise as an arthritis treatment, helps to improve skin disorders, may help treat pain, cancer, lupus, AIDS, and more.
Some large pharmaceutical companies use organic Bee Venom to produce cortizone. They claim the organic Bee Venom makes better, and more effective cortizone than synthetic cortizone.
Numerous conditions that bee venom has been proposed to treat, such as:
- Chronic injuries, such as bursitis and tendonitis
- Hay fever
- Removal of scar tissue
- And Much MORE
Components of Bee Venom
Scientists do not definitively understand how bee venom, which is a complex mixture of numerous compounds, acts on the human body. However, a number of components of bee venom that have been identified and studied include:
Rather than these individual components having an effect, it may be more likely that the body has an immune reaction to bee venom that proves beneficial in certain circumstances.
Bee Venom can be applied topically, orally, or injected.
Doctors are currently experimenting with bee stings to treat a wide range of ailments. Many people fear bees because they don’t want to get stung, but, despite the discomfort felt, bee stings can actually promote health, well-being, vitality, and longevity. When a bee stinger is activated, it releases more than just venom.
According to proponents of bee sting therapy, bee venom contains compounds with anti-inflammatory effects. By reducing inflammation, these compounds are said to promote healing and alleviate pain. One of the bee–venom compounds found to possess anti-inflammatory properties is called melittin.
Bee Venom cab also be applied topically and ingested. We sell only organic bee venom.
An estimated 18 to 20 naturally occurring antibiotics and antivirals can be found in the ensuing concoction, along with anti-inflammatory and pain reduction substances. Bee stings can also trigger reactions in the human body that generate healing properties that would otherwise remain dormant.
Consuming honey is believed to promote general well being and is thought to be effective against “insomnia, anorexia, stomach and intestinal ulcers, constipation, osteoporosis, and laryngitis, and much more”
There’s been a recent surge in interest around the medicinal purposes of bees, also known as Apitherapy, but humans have sought these therapeutic benefits for millennia.
Thousands of years ago the Egyptians used bee products to address arthritis. More recently, doctors in the US have turned to bees to treat multiple sclerosis and immune system disorders that attack skin or nerves.
Medicine professionals globally, researchers, and scientists are cultivating bees to treat health issues ranging from “hair loss to cerebral palsy to cancer, and much more”
A lot of research has to be done to determine just how effective apitherapy is, but there’s little reason to discount the possibility of widespread health benefits. After all, the majority of medicine used today is derived from naturally occurring substances or is modeled on the properties and behaviors of what can be found in nature. Since bees interact with wildlife, it makes sense that they would develop methods for combating pathogens, while also picking up beneficial substances.
Of course, not everyone can get stung by a bee. Some people will have harsh allergic reactions.
But at a time when fears of antibiotic resistant super bugs are on the rise, this hidden trove of medicine could help doctors discover new treatments.
Bees already provide humans with copious benefits, mostly by pollinating 30% of the world’s crops and 90% of the world’s flowers. So protecting them and restoring their ecosystems needs no further justification.
But if it turns out that bees can also treat a range of health problems, then their survival becomes even more important.
Research shows that bee venom has beneficial affects on many diseases and in some cases have proven complete healing. Bee Venom also boosts the human immune system, and individuals claim that it makes them stronger in many ways.
Bee Venom is used in the treatment of rheumatic diseases, multiple sclerosis, rheumatic fever, high blood pressure, sciatica, psoriasis, hematomas, hemorrhoids, prostate, for various skin diseases, burns, and the Russian Institute says that cures cancer and destroy the AIDS virus.
Bee venom is most utilized in Russia, America, Japan, New Zealand and eastern countries where apitherapy is irreplaceable, as we can see how many benefits people are experiencing with natural bee venom.
