apitherapyFolk medicine has always been demanded and reputed and throws back to the old times. The nature is the first pharmacist to open a natural drug store for all who want to be healthy. This medicine proved by many generations, with all the techniques and approaches served for the needs and purposes of nations healing various diseases. Among the techniques is the treatment of diseases with the help of apiculture products. Apitherapy the complex of treatment techniques that apply apiculture products, namely apitoxin. The treatment with apitoxin is performed when bees sting you directly onto your body, with the help of medications based on apian dead bees and processed apitoxin as special ointments. All this procedures are good to rehabilitate the health and do with various human body impairments.

When a bee stings you, a dose of apitoxin comes into your organism that has biologically active substances causing various changes in the organism.

Apitoxin and the structure

The apitoxin is the white liquid with the sharp smell similar to honey aroma and bitter taste. The scientists have not studied its structure fully though it is known to consist various biliologically active substances, including proteins, amino acids, peptides (which are the compounds of protein), neuromediator (like histamine, acetylcholine), the substances that stimulate the data communication from cell to cell, fats, carbohydrates, minerals (copper, magnesium, calcium, phosphor and so forth), non-organic acids (like formic acid, phosphor acid) and other substances.

The protein complex of the apitoxin is differentiated into three basic fractions, namely zero, first and second fractions. Proteins of zero fraction are not biologically active.

The protein complex of the first fraction has an active toxic effect. The peptide melittin prevails in the protein complex which possesses anti-inflammatory, bactericidal (killing pathogenic bacteria) effect. On the top of it, it widens the blood vessels, invokes the breakup of erythrocytes in blood, stimulates the nervous system (in concert with the other peptide apamine) and stimulates the tissue in the puncture point which causes the local inflammatory response and activation of the human immune system. Peptide adolapine causes strong analgetic action, while cardiopeptide balances the function of the cardiovascular system.

The second fraction consists of mainly amino acids and has not that intensive toxic effect. Though, it has two active enzymes which may bring to disorder interacting with the organism cells (thus, evoking break up of erythrocytes, that is haemolysis) and increase the vascular permeability which results in the elated adsorption of toxins. The enzymes of this fraction evoke the reduction in coagulation which can lead to bleeding.

Affect of the apitoxin to the organism

The effect of the apitoxin to the human organism depends on the number of stings, place of sting and individual reaction of the organism. The reaction the organism shows to the toxin may be local and general.

The local reaction is showed as the blushing, edema and burning that go away in several days by themselves.

The sensitiveness to the apitoxin is different from person to person, and thus, the general reaction is different. The reaction may be seen as the slight malady, high temperature, and headache. Nettle rash may appear, and in some cases followed by short breath, elevation of the pulse, drop of the arterial pressure, vomiting and diarrhea. Some severe cases can cause loss of consciousness, convulsions, hemolytic anemia (agglutination and breakdown of erythrocytes). With the increased sensitiveness to the apitoxin, the severe health condition may be caused by the sting.

Talking about the beneficial effect of the apitoxin onto the human organism, we may consider the widening of the blood vessels, strengthening of vessel walls, reduction of cholesterol in blood, increase in the tonus of the nervous, muscular and cardio-vascular system, improvement of the sleep, control of the endocrine gland functions, relief of arthrous and muscular aches and increased allergic background.

Indications for Apitherapy

Apitherapy is good to use in treatment of diseases of the central nervous system (postinsult conditions, Parkinson's disease, infantile cerebral paralysis and migraine) since the apitoxin rehabilitates the physical and psychical functions.

Apitherapy relieves the pain and inflammatory processes in joints and in muscles with neuralgia, osteochondrosis of the spine column, including the radiculitis, lumbago and so forth.

Apitherapy is actively applied in treatment of chronic dermatological diseases (psoriasis, neurodermatitis, eczema, etc.), with slowly indolent ulcers and wounds, with trombophlebitis, obliterating endarteritis (strong narrowing of vessels) and a number of other diseases.

Apitherapy is good with particular allergic diseases, as bronchial asthma.

Contraindications to the apitherapy

The contraindications to the apitherapy are as follow:

  • individual intolerance to the apitoxin;
  • any tumors;
  • severe infections;
  • severe liver diseases and kidney diseases with function impairment;
  • anemia;
  • essential hypertension;
  • diabetes mellitus;
  • infancy;
  • pregnancy and lactation;
  • mental disorders.

Apitherapy procedure

You'd better do the test for the tolerance to the apitoxin prior to the procedure.  

The skin is cleansed with the warm soapy water before the procedure, then take a bee to the back with a pincers and put to the skin with the belly, wait until it stings and leave the sting in the skin for a few minutes, then remove it and the wound is treated with the boracic vaseline. Duration of the therapy lasts for 2 to 3 weeks.

Apitherapy is the perfect technique of treatment, but only if performed by the specially trained health worker who knows all the indications and contraindications and complications of this treatment technique.
