Bee Venom Therapy Photo Essay

By Karl Rabe, Poughkeepsie Journal (USA), 2/14/2007

Claudia Naccarato rubs ice on the spot she just stung her self with a bee Tuesday, February 13, 2007, in her kitchen in the Town of Saugerties. Naccarato utilizes apitherapy, the use of bee venom and bee byproducts such as pollen and honey, to treat Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and arthritis. She has been doing this about 3 times-a-week for about 15 years but less so in the past 5 years. During one particular session she had her self stung 42 times. She keeps one hive in her backyard and in the winter she keeps a number of bees at hand in a box, left, with a mesh screen.
