Bee Venom is a traditional folk remedy that has been used since ancient times for arthritis and other degenerative diseases. Now it’s being used as an alternative therapy to treat multiple sclerosis, Lyme disease and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Bee Venom contains active compounds that have therapeutic properties. It is a rich source of enzymes, peptides and biogenic amines. Michael Simics says in his article entitled Bee Venom Therapy, “There are at least 18 active components in the venom which have some pharmaceutical properties. The effect mechanism of the venom is not entirely known yet. Scientists believe it can modify the way the immune system functions in the body and contribute to increased cortisol production.”
Testcountry.org says that cortisol is a hormone that is essential to proper body function. It is produced by the adrenal cortex in the adrenal gland and is one of the primary factors in the body’s stress response.
Bee venom is administrated by stimulating the bee to sting on the desired point, the affected area, trigger points or acupuncture points Bee venom is the most beneficial if it comes straight from the live bees.
