Buzzing About the Health Benefits of Bee Products
Surprisingly, bee venom, which comes from its sting, can be used to treat arthritis and multiple sclerosis.
What is useful for bees can be good for humans too.
Apitherapy - a word with Greek origins - is the use of products produced by honeybees, such as honey, royal jelly, pollen, propolis and even bee venom, for therapeutic and pharmacological purposes.
Dr Andreas Daugsch, 33, a German with a PhD in food chemistry, calls himself an apitherapist. He has studied propolis in Brazil for 11 years. This is a resinous substance which bees collect from the buds and sap of certain trees to use as a kind of cement in the construction of their hives.
He was in Singapore earlier this month to promote the use of apitherapy as a form of natural healing in a talk at Pharmaplus at Camden Medical Centre
