Thought I would share some amazing effects of bee venom (bee stings) for anyone on the forum that might be interested.  :D

 

 

Bee venom is produced mainly in Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia, and America. Western Honey Bees (apis mellifera) are used for production of bee venom due to availability and certain chemical makeups. Honey bee venom contains anti-coagulation factors therefore it is extremely effective against blood clots. Bee venom also has a noticeable effect on the central and peripheral nervous systems which makes it an ideal choice for treating certain heart conditions. Reports have been published on the use of bee venom being used to treat degenerative diseases of the nervous system such as multiple sclerosis (MS), Alzheimer's Disease, and Parkinson's Disease. Honey bee venom has also been reported to act against different types of cancers in cell and animal experiments. Bee venom acupuncture has been used to control neuropathy caused by cancer chemotherapy. The venom of the honey bee has long been utilized to prevent and treat inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, rheumatism, herniation, and skin diseases. Bee venom therapy is also known to have positive effects on certain allergic disorders such as asthma, allergic rhinoconjuctivitis, and atopic eczema. 

 

This was a quick summary of two articles for convenience of the reader. If you would like to know more I have included links below.
