Holistic Healing Highlights-Bee Venom Therapy (BVT)


Healing qualities of bee venom have been used for a milenia around the world. BVT is the therapeutic application of honeybee venom through live bee stings or injection for relief of various spinal, joint, and musculoskeletal ailments.

Conditions responding to treatment include: arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis,lyme diseaese,MS,lupus,shingles,carpal tunnel,herniated disks, bone fractures and joint injuries. Bee Venom works by stimulating the adrenal glands to produce cortisol, a hormone with anti-inflammatory properties. In addition, BVT prompts the immune system to produce a healing response through the hypothalmus and pituatary, and spurs the production of endorphins, the bodys natural pain killer.
