Bee Venom Therapy for MS - Bee Sting Therapy and Multiple Sclerosis - Apitherapy for MS

Posted Aug 24 2008 9:06pm

This is an Interesting article all about bee venom therapy and the treatment of multiple sclerosis. I agree with the author of this article there's no way I would try this for any reason. Link: Bee Venom Therapy for MS - Bee Sting Therapy and Multiple Sclerosis - Apitherapy for MS .

I’ll put my disclaimer right up front: I would not get bee sting therapy. Period.

I probably wouldn’t have ever done it if I hadn’t written this article. After doing some research, I know I definitely won’t do it. It is simply too unproven, and in a couple preliminary trials (both animal and Phase I safety trial), subjects showed worsening of symptoms. Besides that, you have to do it for a long time for it to work. Besides that, it would hurt. Besides that, "yuck."

That is just my opinion, of course. It is estimated that between 5,000 to 10,000 people with MS in the United States use bee sting therapy, so some people must find that it helps them and isn’t unbearable. Read on for more details.
