蜂医学已经引起医学研究者和生物学家的广泛关注。蜂疗主要是把源自天然的蜂产品应用于人类营养 和医疗保健事业中。蜂疗或蜂医学涉及从王浆到蜂毒等各种蜂产品。蜂疗（蜂产品的治疗性作用）的应用 历史可以追溯到古埃及、中国及古希腊。蜂医学（Apimedica）一词是拉丁语的apis（意为蜜蜂）同英文medica（意为医学）两个单词的组合，因此使用蜂医学这一概念反应了蜜蜂这一宝贵天然资源同人类营养学及医 学实践之间的重要联系。特别是在古埃及和中国，传统医学中已将其应用了千年之久。圣经新旧约书中提到蜂蜜及蜂产品的地方超过40 次。旧约哈巴谷书43 次提到蜂蜜是一种礼物。而先 知苏莱曼使用蜂蜜，也让人们使用它。同时可兰经中有一整章内容是以蜜蜂的名字命名的（16 章，蜜蜂，奈哈勒）。古兰经16 章68-69 节记载，“你可以筑房在山上和树上，以及人们所建造的蜂房里。然后，你从每种果实上吃一点，并驯服地遵循你的主的道路。将有一种颜色不同，而可以治病的饮料，从它的腹中吐 出来；对于能思维的民众，此中确有一种迹象。”在圣训（默罕默德言行录，古兰经的补充）一书中，先知 默罕默德曾23 次提到蜜蜂。他也描述了喜爱蜜蜂的摩门，同时他也喜爱将蜂蜜作为食物。他曾将蜂蜜作为 献埃及王的礼物。同时他也建议人们不要伤害蜜蜂，因为蜜蜂在农业、医药、营养方面具有重要作用。最近有很多研究都报道了利用蜂医学治疗系统性免疫疾病、自身免疫失调症、过敏、病毒性疾病及组 织特异性炎症、前列腺疾病、慢性疲劳综合症、关节炎、慢性疼痛、多发性硬化、心血管疾病及癌症。
