Bee venom therapy is given as a shot for rheumatoid arthritis, nerve pain (neuralgia), multiple sclerosis (MS), reducing the reaction to bee stings in people who are allergic (desensitization) to them (venom immunotherapy), swollen tendons (tendonitis), and muscle conditions such as fibro myositis and enthesis’s.
Apitherapy is a type of alternative therapy that uses products that come directly from honeybees. It’s used to treat illnesses and their symptoms as well as pain from acute and chronic injuries.
Illnesses that apitherapy may treat include:
- multiple sclerosis (MS)
Injuries that apitherapy can treat include:
Bee Venom’s medicinal usage dates back to ancient times especially for treatment of joint pain and arthritis. Bee Venom is used for immunotherapy and help our immune system to become more active.
Science has proven that Bee Venom is used as a shot for alleviating symptoms of nerve pain or neuralgia, multiple sclerosis or MS, swollen tendons, or tendonitis, rheumatoid arthritis or RA, wounds, pain, gout, shingles, burns, and muscle conditions like fibro myositis and enthesis’s.
Bee Venom can be either injected or applied topically. Research done on Bee Venom (BV) and it major bioactive substances along with their potential medicinal effects are listed below:
- Melittin – anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritis, anti-tumor, antimicrobial.
- Apamin – anti-neurodegenerative, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor.
- Phospholipids A2 – anti-tumor, neuroprotective effect, immunomodulatory.
- Adolophine – anti-inflammatory, anti-rheumatic, anti-pyretic, analgesic, anti-coagulant.
- MCD – histaminergic or anti-histaminergic.
- Secapin – anti-microbial.
- Tertiapin – parasympathomimetic.
- Cardio pep – antiarrhythmic.
Firstly, Apis Mellifera(Italian Bee) Worker bees are in good health secondly when an appropriate time for bees are placed on bee venom collector, thus collecting bee venom without any way affecting them. The process of bee venom collector is most human without affecting bees.
After venom extraction also Bees do their normal work. Their venom is regenerated in the body within 2 to 3 days. The sting remains in the body of bees after bee venom collection.
26 amino acids — comprise about 50% of the dry weight of the venom and has been shown to have antiviral, antibacterial, and anticancer effects in some studies are contained in Melittin
You can purchase bee-venom products, such as moisturizers, lotions, and lozenges, online or in specialty stores.
