Advice & Tips: My last shipment of bees died prematuraly. Within the 6th day of not stinging, the inflammation I experience from MS became very intense. I managed to desperately find another local beekeeper who was kind enough to give me 10 bees. I stung myself and immediately felt better, the inflammation was gone.

Advice & Tips: I am now up to 2 bee sting sessions a week, 10 stings per session. The bee stings are more tolerable and the on-site reactions now mild. I typically don't feel any better the following day after the bee sting session. However, the following 2-3 days after I do feel pretty good. I will continue increasing the number of stings.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Major
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 6 other Weekly
Advice & Tips: I am new to apitherapy (i.e., bee stinging). My initial day-long flu-like reaction stopped after three weeks. My on-site reactions has slowly been going away and are more tolerable. Most of my daily inflammation and right leg drop has also gone away. Of all medication/herbal remedies, bee venom has provided the most drastic positive results for me. I don't at all advise starting this treatment without first determining whether you are allergic to bee venom.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

About Bee Venom (apitoxin) (Supplement)

Bee venom therpy, or apitherapy, uses the stings of live bees to relieve symptoms of MS such as pain, loss of coordination, and muscle weakness. Apitherapy researchers suggest that certain compounds in bee venom, namely melittin and adolapin, help reduce inflammation and pain.
