Another great study from Eva Sapi and her group, this time on bee venom and Lyme persisters.

QUOTE- "Our findings showed that both bee venom and melittin had significant effects on all the tested forms of B. burgdorferi.

In contrast, the control antibiotics when used individually or even in combinations had limited effects on the attached biofilm form."

Thanks, Tincup!

I notice the article states that Daily Doses of venom are more effective than otherwise, because, probably, of the half life.

How is the bee venom administered?

My acupuncturist who has lyme catches bees in the spring and puts them in the fridge to make them easier to handle.

He then has the other acupuncturist use chopsticks to pick up the bees and has her sting him at certain acupuncture spots.

Yep, I guess that is one way, Terv!!

You can also do on your own (just google youtube videos), no need of therapists.

Dr. K. is claiming about bee venom therapy for decades, that it helps lyme.

So he used to have some products, like bee venom creams to use topically, for example, on painful joints.

I used that too, but I guess, bee stings are better (?).

What I had used for lyme was Apisinum D6, bee venom in homeopathic form. It did help too, in my experience.

My lyme doctor still uses that for his lyme patients.

Good that the article Tincup published showed antibiofilm effect of bee venom.

And plus, it seems to work better than single AND combined antibiotics for all species of Bb analyzed.

Another positive point for nature!!

thanks for posting that, TC!!

i know someone who made significant gains doing bee venom therapy. the problem with doing this is how many folks can have a bee hive, take bees and sting themselves for long periods of time?

there needs to be a better way of getting the venom and administering it.
