    Default Works wonders!!!

    Hello all,
    I recently did Apitherapy for arthritis and bone spur in my left hip. I got stung 2-3 times once weekly for 3 weeks. It is going on the 3rd week with no pain and no problems with my hip. I stupidly took prednesone prescribed by my doctor and will never, ever take it again. If I get to where I am in pain again, I know what to do: make a trip to the bee yard and take care of business. It works for me. That is all I can say.

    I wish more people would believe it works. I don't talk about it cause folks mostly look at you like you are from Mars.

    wished it worked. I have severe arthritis in my foot from an injury and about a month ago stupidly got stung 3 times right where the arthritis is. It blew up like a balloon and ached for days. Maybe not enough room to allow swelling? I've been stung muliple times in my hands which are also arthritic...did nothing to help. Maybe that is why people don't really believe. But I do believe we all react differently to different things and anything is possible!

    Apitherapy is one of those alternative methods that depends a lot on what you believe. If you have faith in the proceedure it will probably work and vice versa. It works about the same as a Dr giving you a placebo.

    A few months ago I had shoulder joint pain that had been going on for several weeks. I did a sting treatment with 2 stings on my upper arm, then about 5 days later another single sting, right at the shoulder joint, and the same 5 days after that.
    I've had no pain since then. I used a medical clamp/forceps to hold the bee to where I wanted to be stung. I think you can get them in fishing supply stores as they are used to remove hooks from fish' mouths.

    I have a son-in-law that is a real pain. He followed me around a hive in his back yard. Several of the girls hit him betwixt the eyeballs. He in no longer a pain, around the bee yard.
