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.
