    Bee Sting Against Arthritis Pain
    July 30, 2007 in Home Remedy Q&A


    Q. I'm a nurse in a rural hospital. Some of the mountain folk I care for tell me that a bee sting every two years or so will significantly decrease arthritis inflammation and pain. They attribute this remedy to the Chinese who came to this area a hundred years ago to work on the railroads and in the logging industry.

    A. “Apitherapy,” or bee venom therapy, for arthritis goes way back in time. There are reports that it was used in ancient Egypt and China. Hippocrates (460-377 BC) is purported to have written about bee stings for painful joints.

    Doctors in this country used bee venom therapy to treat arthritis during the first part of the 20th century. Hospital pharmacies even stocked venom for injections. After World War II, this approach fell out of favor because it was considered unscientific.

    Proponents claim that honeybee stings can alleviate the pain of tendonitis, arthritis, multiple sclerosis and postherpetic neuralgia. This nerve pain lingers after a shingles attack and can be excruciating. The American Apitherapy Society can provide more information (www.apitherapy.org).

    I've heard about this before and people who seek out treatment this way. It really is supposed to help.

    I was always taught that when you get stung to put mud on it. So whenever I stepped on a bee, I'd immediately find a mud puddle and put my foot in it. Sure enough...it takes the sting away!

    Well that would be nice, but there are those like myself, who after experiencing over 37 bee stings by stepping on an underground yellowjacket nest while camping, are allergic. I have an epi-pen that I have to have with me if I am working outside in my garden at all times. Also, if I don't have one with me I do carry a medical tag that states that if I am having signs of anaphylaxis due to being stung to call 911 immediately. My physician told me after allergy testing that I have less than 15 minutes to get an injection of epinephrine into my system. Thankfully most of the fire department paramedics carry epi on their vehicles. I have thankfully never had to test this out. But I do take pretty good precautions to not get stung.

    Maybe that is why I have osteoarthritis in my lower back, with my L2-5 basically bone to bone.

    Have you tried MSM complex? That helps me a bit if I take it on a regular basis. I found out ten years ago I have scoliosis and a bone spur on one of my thoracic vtrb.. Am dealing with it better at times it is a real pain. How do you manage? That is a large area down there. Hubby has a few of those in the sacral and cervical area. We use intrasound powder and gel.. I am getting more next week!! Good to take a bath in the powder..
    It has been a life saver for us..blessings to you flower
