Neurologist Recommends Health Benefits of Honey, Bee Venom Therapy

No Rest For Busy Bees
Diane Stoneback, Knight Ridder-Tribune Newspapers (USA), 6/7/06

"Honey's role in health and nutrition keeps expanding, too," observes Dr. Robert Roeshman, an Allentown, Pa., neurologist who also is a master beekeeper and tends 20 hives as a hobby.

"Eating a teaspoon of honey a day can help ease allergies," Roeshman says. "Just make sure you buy a local honey (not processed honey) containing local pollens or buy some pollen from an area beekeeper." He explains, "Eating either will desensitize a person to local pollens."

Roeshman considers a bee sting to be good luck and adds, "Bee venom therapy is used to treat arthritis, multiple sclerosis and pain problems. Some honeys have healing properties. Manuka honey from New Zealand is used to treat peptic ulcer disease and burn patients' ulcers. Honey also helps control bacteria that causes peptic ulcer disease."
