Bee Venom Therapy

Bee Venom Therapy (BVT) is the therapeutic use of honeybee venom, through live bee stings, to bring relief and healing for various ailments. It is one component of Apitherapy – the healing properties of the hive. Also included in Apitherapy is the use of honey, pollen, propolis, beeswax and Royal Jelly. BVT was practiced in ancient Egypt, Greece and China and is still used in many cultures today.

What is BVT used for?

People report finding benefit from BVT with conditions such as arthritis (both rheumatoid and osteo), bursitis, tendonitis, Lyme disease, MS, Parkinson’s, shingles, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel, cancerous tumors, herniated discs, bone fractures, sprains, neuralgia (diabetic, post-herpetic), scar pain and more.

The healing capabilities of bee venom is due to:

  • Its ability to decrease inflammation, stimulate a healthy immune response, improve circulation and affect the biofilm of spirochetes (Lyme) and other cells (AIDS, cancer).
  • The sting stimulates the adrenal glands to produce cortisol, a natural human hormone that has anti-inflammatory properties. Bee venom is comprised of 18 compounds, one of which, melittin, has been found to be an anti-inflammatory 100 times stronger than cortisone. Another component, adolapin, acts as both an anti-inflammatory and as a pain blocker.
  • Bee venom therapy stimulates the body’s natural immune system to produce a healing response to the injured or affected area as well as causing the production of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killer. The antibacterial and antiviral properties of bee venom can help treat conditions where this is needed.
