On the contrary, according to them, bee venom promotes healing of the whole organism and bears great health benefits. But the acting Health Minister Uliana Suprun cites other arguments.

Apitherapy – what is it?
This is an alternative method of medicine in which bee products are used for the prevention and treatment of diseases – honey, pollen, propolis, royal jelly, wax and bee venom. These products can be applied topically, taken orally or injected directly into the blood.
The website of the American Association of Apitherapists states that this method is used to treat multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, various infections, inflammation of the joints, burns, to heal wounds, reduce pain and other problems. Among other things, for the treatment of cancerous tumors, both benign and malignant.
In addition, there are no references to studies that would confirm the healing properties of bee products. And all because scientific evidence practically does not exist.
There are articles that indicate that bee products are useful for healing wounds, propolis for rinsing the mouth, and bee venom, which helps reduce swelling and pain in people with rheumatoid arthritis. Despite this, scientists need to conduct additional research to draw solid conclusions.
One of the most common methods of apitherapy is the treatment of bee venom (Bee Venom Therapy). They use either the bites of living bees or the injection, which is made from the venom of insects, in special points of the body. To reduce pain – apply ice. Studies indicate insufficient information to recognize this method as not only effective, but also safe.
One of the most common methods of apitherapy is the treatment of bee venom.
Studies on the treatment of bee venom rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis and different types of pain, as well as multiple sclerosis, are, but their sample is small. Therefore, it cannot be argued that such methods are safe for humans. In addition, the conclusion of a systematic review of treatment with bee venom warns of a high probability of side effects.
There is another method of treatment with the help of bees: people are offered to spend several hours or even spend the night in a specially equipped house. They can lie on the bed, under which there is a hive with insects. This method is used only in Ukraine and again no scientific evidence of its effectiveness exists.
People are offered to spend several hours with insects in the same room.
The doctor Uliana Suprun “Most likely, such a“ treatment ”will not bring any particular harm to the body, but also the promised benefits. The founders of this method, to put it mildly, exaggerate its health effects. And they promise healing for literally the whole organism, for example, eliminating circulatory disorders, normalizing blood pressure, clearing the bronchi and reducing the likelihood of tuberculosis, normalizing metabolism, slowing down the aging process and some other effects. And all this thanks to the buzz of bees and their healing biofield. ”
When bee products can be beneficial
Uliana Suprun advises to make sure that the person is not allergic. You also need to know the potential risks from their use. Add honey to tea looks much safer than purposefully injecting bee venom or using bee products or their buzz to treat serious diseases.
The expert cautions to think critically and to be very careful when it comes to alternative treatments.
