Apitherapy

The medical use of honeybee products. This can include the use of honey, pollen, propolis, royal jelly, and bee venom. Claims of apitherapy have not been proved to the scientific standards of evidence-based medicine and are anecdotal in nature. A wide variety of conditions and diseases have been suggested as candidates for apitherapy, the most well-known being bee venom therapy for autoimmune diseases and multiple sclerosis. These products are used for a broad spectrum of natural health care for animals and humans.
