Apitherapy Gains Popularity in Oman

Oman Observer, 12/28/2014

Have you ever wondered how many products the honeybee provides and what wonderful benefits they hold out for humans? Honey is just one of the many products the honeybees produce. Dr Hassan Talib al Lawati, who was the first in the Sultanate to do research on bee products, says all bee products including honey, pollen, royal jelly (also called bee saliva, spit or milk), propolis, venom, beeswax, beehive smell (as nebuliser), bee larvae and even bee sound are used as medicine. Honey, pollen, propolis, and royal jelly are in maximum use.

Five years of success of this clinic show that bee products have great healing powers and apitherapy, which involves the use of bee products as medicine, has been growing in popularity in Oman.

He uses all bee products in the form of cream, soaps, syrups and bee sting for healing a host of conditions related to muscle, nerve, skin, hair falling, cough, throat, eye infection, flue, and sinuses. Honeybee products are also used for multiple sclerosis, arthritis, wounds, pain, gout, shingles, burns, tendonitis, and infections.

Located in Al Khuwair at Al Amal Medical and Health Centre (7th floor), the Bee Products Healing Centre provides a perfect platform to see apitherapy in action and all bee products which are used for various healing purposes. It is also a chance to speak to others who may have already benefited from this therapy…
