What kinds of conditions are treated with Apitherapy?
Currently the most popular and well known uses of honey bee venom in the United States are for people suffering from MS and many forms of arthritis. There is some scientific data supporting the use of Apitherapy for treatment of post-herpetic neuralgia. There were several articles written in the first half of the 1900’s about using bee venom in the treatment of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis and there is some ongoing research now looking at it’s effect in Multiple Sclerosis. Anecdotal reports suggest that it might have some usefulness in the treatment of infectious, auto-immune, cardiovascular, pulmonary, and gastrointestinal diseases and in neuropathic pain and other chronic pain conditions.
