As a technique, it is the medical use of the products of the honey bee hive:
Honey, pollen, propolis, royal jelly, and bee venom. These products can be used individually. More frequently, several of those are used together. Essential oils, already present in honey and propolis are often used in conjunction with the products of the hive.
As a philosophy, it is a form of harmony between the individual and the environment.
As a medical principle, it is primarily the cultivation of health and its re-establishment when sickness interferes.

Currently the most popular and well known uses of honey bee venom in the United States are for people suffering from MS and many forms of arthritis, post-herpetic neuralgia, it might have some usefulness in the treatment of infectious, auto-immune, cardiovascular, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, neuropathic pain and other chronic pain conditions.

Bee Venom, in synergy with other bee products, is the major therapeutic agent. Live bee stings or a commercially available venom extract which can be injected by doctors are used in conjunction with one or more of the products of the bee hive mentioned above.
Practitioners include physicians, nurses, acupuncturists, naturopaths as well as interested laypersons including bee keepers who can provide persons who want bee venom therapy with bees and instruct them how to treat themselves.


Contrary to popular belief allergy to honey bee sting is relatively rare: about 7 in a thousand persons is allergic. Of this proportion only a small percentage risks anaphylactic shock. Never the less bee venom treatment is always to be preceded by a test of sensitivity. A sensitive person can be de-sensitized to bee venom, thus allowing Apitherapy to proceed. Any one that uses or administers bee venom have readily available an Epinephrine kit to be used in case of anaphylactic response and know how to use it. Erroneously, many people consider swelling after a sting to be an allergic reaction. Swelling is a normal response of the body as are localized redness, swelling and itching.
