Using bee venom

Bee venom is a unique product with a number of properties beneficial to the human body. It is able to rapidly dilate blood vessels, providing an unobstructed blood supply to inflamed areas. And also actively participate in the production of synovial fluid, which is responsible for lubricating joints.


Treatment of arthrosis of the shoulder joint by bees gives good results. Puffiness disappears, pain syndrome is eliminated. If the disease is at the initial stage, there is every chance to completely get rid of the pathological condition of the joints in several courses of bee sting in the problem area. The poison is equally effective on the ankle, knees, elbows and shoulders.

The amino acids that make up this bee product, when they enter the human body, start the process of regeneration of bones and cartilage tissue. And the high content of peptides helps the body to cope with inflammation.

The stinging procedure is absolutely safe – the insect venom is sterile. The only problem is a possible allergy to apitoxin. It affects 5% of the world’s population.


Bites or stings are more effective as the venom penetrates directly into the area of ​​inflammation. This treatment is performed once a day, preferably in the evening, shortly before bedtime. One course takes 1,5-2 months.

At the same time, it is necessary to ensure that the bees do not bite in the same place for at least 3-4 days! The stings are constantly changing. The break between courses is at least a week.

The treatment regimen is as follows:

  1. The number of bites gradually increases from one to ten. The sting is kept in the body for one minute. The stinging is carried out at intervals of a day! The course consists of 10 sessions of apitherapy.
  2. There is a break of 5-7 days.
  3. The second course takes two months. The patient should be stung by three bees every four days.

In total, about 200 bites will have to be endured during the treatment period – 55 for the first and up to 150 for the second course of therapy.


A more gentle and painless method is the use of pharmacy ointments containing apitoxin.

Apitherapist’s opinion on treatment with bee venom:

The problem area is washed with warm water and soap, wiped dry. Then a hot compress is applied for a few minutes. Then 2-3 g of ointment is rubbed into the heated skin.

The main problem with such treatment is the impossibility of precise control. An insufficient amount of poison will not bring the expected relief, and an overdose is dangerous for the occurrence of an allergic reaction.


An overdose of bee venom is fraught with the occurrence of anaphylactic shock, Quincke’s edema, severe itching and edema at the site of the bite, respiratory failure, severe weakness and dizziness.

Bee sting is prohibited:

  • with oncological ailments;
  • with diseases of the heart and blood vessels;
  • with chronic infections, including tuberculosis;
  • with hepatic and renal failure;
  • with diabetes mellitus.

Before starting the course of treatment, it is necessary to perform a test bite with control of the composition of blood and urine in a medical laboratory! Ointments are also used with caution – the first time a half dose is applied to the skin (approximately 0,5-1 g).

For the entire period of treatment of joints with beekeeping products, it is necessary to refuse to take alcohol and products that can cause food allergies. These include eggs, citrus fruits, chocolate, coffee, sugary and carbonated drinks.
