Re: Transport of Honey bees approx 1000 miles
It's good that you are feeling much better. Sorry to hear you had to deal with Lyme disease.
FWIW: I would like to add what I have read about Lyme disease to help anyone that may be interested.......
Lyme disease is difficult to treat as many drugs do not cross the blood/brain barrier and are not effective in ridding joints of the Lyme spirochete. Lyme likes to "hide" in both of these areas. Bee venom, however, will reach these areas and is effective. IMO, if I personally got Lyme, I would error on the side of caution and do BVT and take the antibiotic treatment. I would also take propolis and royal jelly.
I just had a discussion with a lady I met up north about Lyme and she said she had it for 10 years before she was diagnosed by a doctor. She treated it herself with herbs. She pulled up her book from behind the counter that she used as a reference. Don't remember the title, but something to the effect of treating Lymes with herbs. She had been considering doing BVT to help with the damage/effects due to having it for 10 years. There are people she knows that do this.
Many bee products of the hive are anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal and that includes bee venom.
