What is apitherapy ?

Bee venom has a long tradition as a folk remedy for arthritis and other degenerative diseases. As in the case of many natural folk treatments used for millennia throughout the world, bee venom contains active compounds that have therapeutic properties. Just as myriad plants have given humankind some of our most valuable pharmaceutical drugs, many of the bioactive ingredients in bee venom are a treasured, but little known, part of Nature’s pharmacy active compounds that have therapeutic properties. Bee venom is administered by properly trained therapists in the form of a direct bee sting or a variant of it, or else by injection of a Venom extract. In several studies, including research conducted by Andrew Kochan MD, bee venom therapy was successful in treating diseases which conventional pharmaceuticals can only partly help. Bee venom has potent analgesic and immuno- modulatory properties that help reduce inflammation and promote healing. It also contains several anti-inflammatory compounds including melittin and adolapin.

Medical researchers in Russia reported that bee venom helped restore the normal function of the endocrine system in patients. Other studies reveal that melittin stimulates the endocrine system to produce cortisol, the body’s own cortisone-like, anti-inflammatory substance. Melittin is a peptide that appears to be more powerful than hydrocortisone in decreasing inflammation. It is free of the serious side effects linked with hydrocortisone. A November 2004 article published in the journal Arthritis and Rheumatism explores the mechanism of this anti-inflammatory property of Melittin. The growing list of therapeutic benefits and overall safety profile of bee venom therapy have made it one of the most remarkable complementary treatments currently available for relieving intractable pain.

Preliminary case studies suggest that bee venom improve symptoms of :

  • Rheumatoid Arthitis
  • Gout
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Post herpetic neuralgia
  • Painful or keloid scars
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome

Why we promote apitherapy?

Since May, 2010, we have apitherapy specialist from P.R. China to teach and demonstrate the use of apitherapy at Big Bee Farm, Pattaya, Chonburi.

As we believe this is a very valuable method for health care. Apitherapy may be mastered by the Thai and benefit Thai people. We wish our effort can attract interest from the general society, especially the medical professionals. Our goal is to hold training course of apitherapy for the Thai people, so that the practice of apitherapy may continue in Thailand.
