Abstract

Bee Venom therapy, as bee honey has long contributed to human life as a luable fancy food since human history began. It can be found in the literature back up to a housand years as a form of therapy for mangement of apin of various origin. Even to the present, there are some physicians and medical personnel who believe in the effects of bee sting therapy throughout the world. However Bee Venom therapy remains somewhat controversial and there are very few controlled studies avalable to guide clinical practice. We administered apitherapy (Bee venom therapy) against pain of musculoskeletal origin in thirty one patients from october 1988 to october 1990 and got successful results in seventy one percent of patients. Our results suggest that Bee Venom therapy can be one of the methods for conquering pain caused by true inflamation.
