If you've had trouble conceiving for some time, you might want to try apitherapy, otherwise known as bee-sting therapy, in Moyudan, Sleman regency in Yogyakarta.

It is believed apitherapy can make nerves in the body act normally, thanks to substances found in bee stings.

Wawan and Maria, who have been married for five years and were having trouble conceiving, have faith in the alternative therapy.

The couple from Prambanan in Klaten regency, Central Java, were still unable to conceive after going through many procedures and treatments with specialists.

"We saw some specialists and the results were always negative. We were so frustrated," said Maria.

After undergoing bee-sting therapy on 20 different occasions, she became pregnant and the couple now has a one-year-old child…

As a medical treatment, the use of bee stings has been recognized by the World Health Organization. At the second World Acupuncture Therapy Conference on Bee Stings in Nanjing, China, in 1993, the WHO recognized apitherapy as a legitimate alternative treatment. It is now used in many countries, such as China, Korea, Romania, Bulgaria and Russia…

The benefit of bees has been explained in the Koran. It says the material from a bee's stomach can be medicinal to humans and honey can be used to treat physical diseases…

As a devout Muslim, Hendro wanted to prove the truth of the Koran's An Nahl verses 68-69, which explain how the bee can benefit human health...
