Health benefits and uses in medicine of bee venom

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

Bee venom has been used since ancient times as a healing treatment for various disorders. Whether humans began keeping honey bees to harvest honey or to use their stings as a therapeutic tool, we do not know. Bee sting is probably one of the first natural cures for certain symptoms. Since the first known publication of bee venom’s effect on rheumatic disorder in the late nineteenth century, scientific research has confirmed its biological properties as a therapeutic treatment against numerous diseases over the past few decades. The role of bee venom in the advancement of knowledge of human function is undeniable and further research may prove invaluable in the design and development of new therapeutic drugs.
