Similarly, Bee Venom is also a wonderdrug. More specifically Bee Venom Therapy is the therapeutic application of honeybee venom, through live bee stings and topical creams, which bring relief and healing for various spinal, neural, joint, or musculo-skeletal ailments. From circulation issues and high blood pressure to arthritis and rheumatism, bee venom stimulates the adrenal glands to produce cortisol, a natural human hormone that has anti-inflammatory properties. In addition, Bee venom jump starts the immune system to produce a healing response through the pituitary, and adrenal glands, and activates the production of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killer.
I recently read a book by Fred Malone titled “Bees don’t get Arthritis”, where after a road trip across the United States interviewing as many beekeepers as possible the author concluded that the low percentage of beekeepers facing chronic health issues can be attributed to their frequent ingestion of bee venom. He also notes the overall vitality and longevity of beekeepers in general and directly correlates it to the commonness of sting on the job.
Just as in all bee products, allergic reactions are possible with the treatment of bee venom and therefor its important to take precaution in their administration. If further interested in Bee Venom Therapy, seek out your local apitherapist for a consultation!
