Re: Apitherapy on ankle
Does the bug catcher help control the bee so you can get stung where you want?
I am a believer in sting therapy. I have a shoulder problem that flairs up from time to time. At least 6 months ago, maybe more, I started using bee stings to see how that would work. With the help of my sweetie, I would sting the area about every 5-7 days, 2 stings, took only 3 times and pain has been gone since then. At the time I started, the pain had been constant for over 2 weeks, unlike the come and go I'd experienced before then.
Since then, I had a finger injury that I got some ligament damage and the pain wouldn't go away. I read about "inflammation therapy" that described why inflammation heals damaged tissues--I can't find the article now. It was using drug injections to cause inflammation, whereas we can use bee stings.
My problem is I am trying to find a way where I can get the bee to sting exactly where I want, as I am usually working with just one hand. It seems I cant get the bee to sting unless I tap on it once I have it on the site of sting. I also have chronic headaches due to neck injury, and I would love to start bee sting therapy on my neck...if I can find a way to get them to sting without always having to get a second person's help.
Another thing, I have mild arthritis and I always feel good the day after bee stings.
