    Would there be any interest in a forum on Apitherapy?
    Give me your opinion.

    Yes i would be intrested,we had a lady come to our bee club and gave a talk on Apitherapy.She had a clinic in Ava, Mo. and also went to peoples homes to give treatments.She had many people she treated for different things that said she cured them or helped them. It needs more study. :confused: Jack

    PS. I hear she is still around.I would think the malpratice insurance would cost more than she made,if she could get it. :confused:

    How about a forum for "Bee Medicinals" or some such name?
    This could encompass apitherapy, but also the preparation and use of propolis tinctures, homeopathic apis preparations, pollen supplements, royal jelly, the benefits of local honey for allergies, etc.

    I like the direction omie wants to take this. There is a lot of medical benifits derived from products of the hives and bees. This would open it up for all areas instead of limiting it to apitherapy

    Ok but can you spell 'benefits' right? Then we'll all look real smart! :lol:

    Also I think it should be 'medicinal' instead of 'medical'.

    How about:
    The Hive and Your Health-
    medicinal benefits from the beehive

    I kind of liked Omie 'Bee Medicinals'.... which I am certain I could misspell if I worked at it long enough.

    Doesn't the term "Apitherapy" encompass all of that already?
    The definition from the American Apitherapy Society is " the medicinal use of products made by honeybees.... Products of the Honeybee include bee venom, honey, pollen, royal jelly, propolis, and beeswax."

    I would love to hear more about the use of bee medicinals, but I vote for the most concise name possible. I like either "Bee Medicinals", or just "Apitherapy".
