Almost every part of a bee is said to provide some form of health relief for humans.
Honey & Wound Healing
Cancer officials say that honey has become a ‘game changer’ in the oncology world.
““Sometimes antibiotics don’t do enough, and you don’t have a good blood supply all the way down to the base wound,” she said. “If arteries are damaged and the wound has a very poor blood supply, I can give them all the antibiotics I want, but it is not going to reach it. So we have to get something topical on top of doing something systemic,” says Patrice Dillow, who has been a registered nurse for more than 20 years.
“I’ve never had a wound that I would have avoided using honey on,” she says.
According to Epoch Times, honey can reduce the buildup of fluids, soften hardened skin tissue and pull out infection, while repairing skin tissue on a deeper level.
“Honey lowers the pH of a wound, and when the pH of a wound is lower we have better wound healing,” Dillow adds. “This also makes the patient more comfortable, because when the pH is higher, the patient usually has more pain.“
Bee Venom & HIV
According to Medical News Today, bee venom contains the toxin Melittin which has shown to destroy HIV cells in studies.
“Melittin is a powerful toxin found in bee venom. It can poke holes in the protective viral envelope that surrounds the human immunodeficiency virus, as well as other viruses,” says Medical News Today.
However, melittin in large quantities may cause internal damage, according to sources.
Bee venom has also shown promising results in studies surrounding the eradication of tumid growths.
Propolis & Cold and Flu
Some believe the biological components of Propolis may help shorten the length one suffers from the common cold or flu.
“Propolis is rich in bioflavonoids that may be responsible for its reputed antiviral properties,” says NYR Natural News.
“Try taking 500 mg once or twice a-day to treat viral infections, sore throat, pain and fever associated with colds and flu…” the site recommends.
Royal Jelly & Fertility
Royal jelly is a milky white substance fed to the Queen Bee.
Other than being said to improve organ function and fertility, the site Healthy with Honey says the following of royal jelly’s salubrious composition:
“Royal Jelly is rich in amino acids, lipids, sugars, vitamins, and most importantly, proteins. It contains high levels of vitamins D and E, good amounts of B-vitamins, including high levels of vitamin B5 and vitamin B6, and amino acids, including all eight essential amino acids, and also has ample levels of iron and calcium. As all of these are essential to proper health and organ function, it is very easy to understand how Royal Jelly can help in assisting with fertility.”
According to this site, royal jelly helps to promote both sperm and egg health, while fighting internal and external signs of aging.
