What is Apitherapy?

Apitherapy is the art and science of making therapeutic use of products of the honeybee hive, including honey, pollen, propolis, royal jelly, bee bread, bee wax and bee venom. Bee stings, or bee venom therapy (BVT), is the use of live bee stings or bee venom injections to help people suffering from a variety of ailments. I personally use live bees only.

Note: Apitherapy is not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration, or any other regulatory agency in the USA.

What do you treat with Bee Venom Therapy (BVT)?

Some of the more common maladies that BVT has been used to treat include: arthritis, asthma, bursitis, bronchitis, cancer, corns, cysts, eczema, herpes, irregular periods, low back pain, lupus, multiple sclerosis, myalgias (muscle pains), menstrual cramps, neuralgia, psoriasis, sciatica, tennis elbow, varicose veins, and others. I have heard it said that if everything else failed, try BVT.

Note: This list does not imply that these conditions are cured by BVT. Further, this list does not address the totality of conditions that Apitherapy addresses.

What if I am allergic to bee venom?

Contrary to popular belief, allergy to honey bee venom is relatively rare; about 7 in a thousand persons is allergic. Of this proportion only a small percentage risks anaphylactic shock. Never the less, your health is my priority, therefore all bee venom treatment is preceded by a sensitivity test.

Ear Cone Candling

Ear cone candling is a painless therapeutic procedure consisting in connecting a wax made cone to the ear. The cone is lit and a vacuum is formed. Because of the differences in pressure created, the excess wax and debris is removed. At the same time, the vacuum stimulates blood and lymph circulation. In my experience, the recipient generally feels lightheaded. Ear cone candling can help relieve chronic ear infections in children and adults, alleviates the head and upper respiratory area and it is a tonic for stress reduction. Ear cone candling is almost unknown today but ancient Egyptians, Chinese, Tibetants and Greeks used this method for centuries.
