When you think of the benefits of bees, honey and pollination are the first things that come to mind. But these industrious insects help humans in more ways that we can imagine.
Have you ever heard of Bee Therapy? If you’ve ever been stung by a bee, you already have firsthand experience of bee therapy. The only difference between the sting you got and the therapeutic kind is that yours was probably accidental.
While bee therapy is not a new thing, there’s an emerging trend developing as more and more doctors are recommending bee therapy to help ease the symptoms of a wide variety of diseases, including arthritis, multiple sclerosis, tendonitis, and fibromyalgia. The results are revealed in the video below.
According to HealthDay, one woman says that “80 stings every other day helped reverse her rheumatoid arthritis.” Another patient with multiple sclerosis found that the “leg spasms she’d been having calmed down after she started using bees to sting herself a few times each day.”
While personal testimonies may be taken with skepticism, careful scientific studies conducted on animals and in test tubes suggest that bee venom may have some ability to lessen the pain and inflammation of arthritis.
