    Default Need help in Amarillo

    A lady called me yesterday and her son has MS and he is interested in trying bee venom therapy. I told them that I couldn't do it since I'm not trained and that there could be potential risks involved but that I'd check on Bee Source. Do any of you know someone in West Texas, Oklahoma or Eastern New Mexico who might be able to visit with this lady and/or apply apitheripy to her son? Let me know and I'll pass on the info.

    thanks,

    Charlie

    I don't personally know anyone but if you don't get a response from anyone try http://www.apitherapy.com. The American Apitherapy Association maintains a list of apitherapists in different areas.

    Well intentioned professional help is nice, but if all else fails any one can rustle up a few bees out of the bushes and sting themselves.

    Dangerous? Not nearly as dangerous as an injection of a licenced medicine.

    Health is our natural state. Animals in the wild organise their own health. It is only homo-sapiens who think they need some one else to hold their hand when they are sick.

    Cheers,

    I agree whole heartedly, John. I suggested the American Apicultural Society because I don't know any beekeepers in Texas who will provide the bees or their stings and the American Apitherapy Society maintains a list of beekeepers who will.

    I just went through a similar situation but with carpal tunnel. I asked if everyone who would be around the bees had been stung before and they all had with no negative side effects. I then told them how we go about it and then sent them off with a few bees to do the stinging on their own.
    Just because they want stings doesn't mean you have to accept the liability of doing it for them.
