API Appointment text boxTherapies involving the honey bee have existed for thousands of years and some may be as old as human medicine itself. The ancient rock art of early hunter-gatherers depicts the honeybee as a source of natural medicine. Bee venom therapy was practiced in ancient Egypt, Greece, and China—three Great Civilizations known for their highly developed medical systems.

Hippocrates, the Greek physician known as the “Father of Medicine”, recognized the healing virtues of bee venom for treating arthritis and other joint problems.

Today, growing scientific evidence suggests that various bee products promote healing by improving circulation, decreasing inflammation, and stimulating a healthy immune response.

It is important to note that Apitherapy is not only the use of the venom for healing, often called Bee Sting Therapy, but the use of all the hive products, and usually a combination of them. These products are also sometimes mixed with other ingredients, specifically different essential oils, and dependent on the condition being treated.

API-THERAPY, “Bee Therapy”

(From the Latin apis which means bee) Is the use of products made by Honey Bees. Products of the Honey Bee Hive include:

  • Raw Honey
  • Bee Pollen
  • Royal Jelly
  • Podmore
  • Propolis
  • Hive Air
  • Beeswax

Just as a myriad of plants have given humankind some of our most valuable pharmaceutical drugs, many of the bioactive ingredients produced in the Honey Bee Hive are a treasured, but little known, part of Nature’s pharmacy of active compounds that have therapeutic properties without harmful side effects.

Bee Venom Therapy (BVT)

Bee Sting Therapy (BST):

An alternative healing application of Honey Bee venom, through live bee stings, to bring relief and healing for various spinal, neural, joint, or musculoskeletal ailments.

Bee venom is a rich source of enzymes, peptides and biogenic amines. There are at least 18 active components in the venom which have pharmaceutical properties.

The healing potency of bee venom is initiated after a sting, when it stimulates the adrenal glands to produce cortisol, a natural human hormone that has anti-inflammatory properties.

In addition, BVT jump starts the immune system to produce a healing response through the hypothalamus, pituitary, and adrenal glands, and spurs the production of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killer.

The antibacterial and antiviral properties of bee venom make it a unique weapon in fighting bacterial and viral ailments of the central nervous system and elsewhere.
