Learn the Power of the Bee with us, Today's subject,  What is Apitherapy

What is Apitherapy

I have been keeping honey bees for over seventeen years. This endeavor has brought more knowledge than I could have ever imagined.

 What is Apitherapy ...

Api or apis is the latin word for bee. Therapy comes from the Greek word  Therapeuein and means, a method to treat humans and animals against different diseases.

 In other words Bee-therapy.

 What is Apitherapy

Simply put, Apitherapy is the use hive products to prevent, heal or recover man, animals even plants from many diseases and conditions.

"Apitherapy is the Art and Science of treatment and holistic healing through the honeybee and her products for the benefit of mankind and all the animal kingdom."

(Tina Drakes, A.I.C. student, U.K.).

In my twenties I was diagnosed with Fibromyaigia. It is very painful and the older you get the more painful it becomes.

In my late thirties I began keeping bees, but the pain was becoming worse each year.

What is Apitherapy

One day a friend called me and said he had a swarm of bees in his tree. He asked if I would come get them.

Of course I said and I headed to his house.

I did not know they were killer bees. As I went to cage them i got stung close to 100 times.

I looked like I just went swimming in poison oak. It was real ugly.

Two weeks later i noticed that the muscular pain of my Fibromyaigia was gone and I needed no more pain meds.

Please do not try that at home.

What are the different hive products...

Royal jelly, propolis, honey, beeswax and bee hive air. All of these have healing properties That we will discuss in later post.

Needless to say there is also bee venom. Mainstream science has proven that bee venom kills HIV and cancer cells.

 Amazing healing honey

Amazing healing honey

Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Would you like to reverse ageing, loss weight or just run circles around your children? How about restoring your liver, defeating depression and bringing a sense of well being to your life?

Amazing healing honey

Yes you can, And it is in a microbial ooze we call honey!

This is my story, I am a beekeeper not a doctor or herbalist. All my life I suffered with cedar pollen allergies. The reaction was so bad the doctors thought it was the flu and gave me poison to take. I was a little boy then and did not know any better. I did not know that it was an allergy until 1998. All I knew was that every time the Santa Anna wind blew I got sick. 103 degree temp. Muscle pain coughing, sneezing and a little pneumonia to boot.

Amazing healing honey

As I got older I started to hurt bad, getting worse every year. Crushing body pain so bad I would wake up and night screaming in pain. Doctors could not do shit, They kept wanting me to take their meds. ( LIKE, THAT WOULD MAKE IT BETTER )

If that was not bad enough my liver began to hurt I knew I was dying. But I could not give up.

I began beekeeping in 2000 And started eating a lot of raw honey straight from the hive. Soon I noticed that I did not get sick when the cedars bloomed. The body pain was gone and my liver stopped hurting.

I eat about 3 tablespoons of honey that comes from my hives every day. It has changed my life.

Before you run out and buy a bunch of honey there are a few things you need to know. I only know of one type of Raw unfiltered honey that will not crystallize and that is Clarey Sage. Honey that dose not have pollen in it will not crystallize because pollen is the nucleator of which crystallization begins. The higher amount of pollen in your honey the faster it will crystallize.

Why is pollen  in honey so important? Because of all that is brings to the honey. Honey without pollen basically sugar. ( see list at bottom of page.)

Not too forget the enzymes. There are over 5000 different LIVE WORKING ENZYMES  in Raw honey working for you. That are killed with the filtering process.

Make sure you know the beekeeper you are getting your honey from. Some Beekeepers feed their bees hfcs and we know that most corn is gmo. Most, but not all beekeepers medicate their bees with mitecides and antibiotics. This will also contaminate  the honey!

All beekeepers will know the nectar flow and will know the plants their honey comes from. Please note that soy, corn, cotton and alfalfa ARE gmos now!

In case you are wondering the honey my bees produce is from Mesquite Trees there is no cotton grown in my part of Texas and the only food corps are backyard gardeners. And those are very few. Yes, I live in the middle of NOWHERE.

As we all know all honey is not the same. In fact the Big Country has diverse honey flows. In the early spring is mostly wild plum and pear honey both are nice and are light and clear. Next comes the mesquite flow.

Beginning after the fruit bloom, the mesquite blooms this is our main honey flow. The mesquite bloom sometimes last all the way to labor day. Mesquite honey is a golden yellow honey and is almost see through. Sometimes peppers and or horehound will get mixed in somewhat clouding the honey.

But, my subject today is cotton honey. Cotton honey is extremely dark, almost black. We have lots of acres planted in cotton. We need to very careful with cotton honey.

Most if not all cotton planted today is GMO, bt or roundup ready. These toxins and insecticides are in the genome of the plant and therefore in the nectar also.

I can't tell you if cotton honey is safe. I can tell I will not feed it to my family or my bees. Furthermore I will not knowingly sell it!

When buying Honey buy it from a bee Keeper. That is the only way to know the nectar source of the honey.

Beware of cotton honey
