Apitherapy for the 21st Century

Apitherapy is the use of all the Honey Bee products - venom, honey, pollen, propolis, royal jelly, wax - for medicine. It has been used by many people for thousands of years all over the world. We have written records, cave drawings and modern scientific studies validating the efficacy of Apitherapy. 

In 2011 Ellie Lobel was told by her doctors she had 4 months to live because her organs were shutting down from the Lyme she had suffered with for 15 years. She made medical history when she was attacked by a swarm of killer bees and then subsequently went on to develop the first systematic Bee Venom Therapy treatment to eradicate Lyme disease (and possibly other chronic conditions). Using herself as a guinea pig, she eventually eradicated the infections from her body for good.

Her story:

Honey Bee Venom has long been used to control chronic symptoms - pain, stiff joints, paralysis, seizures…there’s an extensive list. Traditionally, apitherapists sting many times all over the body, usually wherever the patient is having pain & issues. There has been no consensus nor fixed system, treatments can vary widely from one apitherapist to another.

Ellie’s method is a whole new approach using the Central Nervous System (CNS) to deliver the venom to every part of the body, deep into the tissues (even bone) where the bacteria hide. Live stings are applied to either side of the spine, rarely stinging the extremities or other parts of the body. We start slowly and build up over time to the desired level. This regimen keeps the venom levels high enough to kill pathogenic microbes, but low enough to not damage the organs. Consistent application with very precise dosing over a long enough time period is the key. 

This Bee Venom Protocol is an elegant treatment that kills the pathogens, heals the damage they caused, and remodulates multiple functions that have gone haywire. There are now many people using this Bee Venom Therapy (BVT) to treat Lyme as well as a number of other chronic health issues. We are sharing our journeys here:

Both of these Facebook groups feature the BVT Protocol pinned to the top of the Page, and both have extensive info in the Files Tab, including testimonials.
