The bee has a lot to offer

The “Apis” is the honeybee, which is essential for our environment and especially for us humans. It pollinates about 80 percent of all plant species.

Man lives embedded in his environment and needs a healthy environment for his well-being. The bees make a special contribution to this! They have health-promoting resources that Api therapy tries to research and that are applied in our practice in Frankfurt am Main.


Honey in Apitherapy - here are the benefits

For example, the honey has disinfectant and wound-cleaning effects, dissolves the phlegm in connection with tea drinks and promotes digestion. It has served as a “carrier” for medicines and made them durable, for thousands of years. The respective honeys can also be specifically used in therapy: Dandelion honey, for example, is well-suited for use in liver diseases. Thyme or fennel honey is used for colds.

Bees collect bee pollen for their offspring in order to be able to pass on the “power of a tree” in bee bread. For example, pollen in humans is used in situations of exhaustion, deficiency symptoms and unfulfilled infertility.

Apitherapy based on wax and royal jelly

Wax, on the other hand, forms the basis of many ointments and can also be helpful as a supporting layer. Ingested, it binds fats and can contribute to their excretion.

Royal Jelly represents the Queen Bee’s food, which is the only one that regulates hive reproduction and can lay up to 2000 eggs a day. The queen bee is significantly bigger than the workers and lives for about three to four years, thanks to the royal jelly, not just two to six weeks like the other bees.

Bee venom and apitherapy a special combination

Bee venom has a rather negative image, which is wrong. Over millennia, for example, it was recognized that some diseases improved as a result of apitherapy due to bee stings. The treatment hereby, as offered in our practice in Frankfurt am Main, belongs to well-trained hands, but is an additional option for a few illnesses.

But that’s not enough! For example, those who inhale the purifying hive air during apitherapy often feel better. This is full of cleansing and soothing active ingredients that can be used meaningfully, for example, in connection with respiratory diseases. Of course, it is not good for everyone and people with allergies must be careful. Nevertheless, personal experience and initial clinical trials show an interesting effect. Currently we are still looking for ways to offer this form of therapy.

We will keep you up to date.
