A Special Message for Lyme Sufferers

Systemically, it is impossible for bee venom therapy to cure anyone of Lyme disease, just as it cannot cure someone with MS or AIDS.  This is something I learned in a 2003 CMAC conference (Charles Mraz Apitherapy Course), and it was part of the presentation given by the AAS (American Apitherapy Society).  Bee venom does have the ability to travel down a neural pathway when it comes from a live bee sting, but it cannot go to every nook and cranny of the human body where some bacteria, like the spirochete, and viruses, like AIDS, will habituate.  A concentration of bee venom in a particular area will kill these bacteria and viruses, but it will only be a matter of time until either the bacteria or virus return after remaining in another area of the body.  For these diseases, bee venom is very good at controlling symptoms, or repairing damage, like that can be found with myelin fiber in MS, or various neuropathies, but it is misleading to call this a cure.

Additionally, as recently reported in the Stamford Advocate (7/6/17),  professor Eva Sapi and her students in The University of New Haven’s Lyme Disease Research Group, have found that liquid, whole leaf stevia extract (not powder) reduced Borrelia burgdorferi biofilm mass in lab studies by 40 percent.  While this still needs to be proven in clinical trials, professor Sapi believes a product of nature, like liquid, whole leaf stevia extract can be an effective agent against B. burgdorferi spirochetes.
