Not everyone can use live bee venom (specifically diabetics as an example) but they can use the propolis, royal jelly and pollen.
Does this mean diabetic beekeepers shouldn't get stung. I get stung a lot. This is something which my Dr. and I are not aware.

Could you give me more info on this so I can bring it to her attention.

Thank you,
Alex

No, it is not to say that a diabetic shouldn't keep bees, they just discourage apitherapists from intentionally applying bee stings to a diabetic person. I've not seen the reasoning spelled out, even with the older textbooks on apitherapy, so I'm not sure why.

Thanks for the response. I don't know much about apitherapy.
