Conference participants will have the option of registering for a two-day “Practical Intensive Apitherapy and Apipuncture Course and Workshop.” The theme of this year’s intensive course is “Practical Applications of Apitherapy in the Prevention and Treatment of Human and Animal Diseases.”

Api-Expo 2007, held in conjunction with the conference, features Apitherapy-related companies from Europe and around the world.

Apitherapy is the use of bee hive products such as bee venom, bee-collected pollen, royal jelly, propolis, beeswax, and honey to maintain good health and in the treatment of a variety of medical conditions. Propolis is a resinous substance collected by bees from plants and trees and is used to coat the inside of the bee hive and the honeycomb cells with an antiseptic layer. Royal jelly is a substance produced by young worker bees and fed to queens.

March 30, 2007, will mark the 2nd annual celebration of “World Apitherapy Day," an event designed to enhance international understanding of the therapeutic use and health benefits of bee products.
