Can bee stings relieve inflammation of Rheumatoid arthritis?

If you want something natural to relieve inflammation in a matter of minutes I urge everyone to do bee stings! Google it! When I was crippled up in bed by flare ups it was my life saver!

Hmmm... I have RA and also neuropathy pain. About a month ago I got stung by a wasp. It felt like my finger was on fire for about 30 minutes! But I do remember later that day, I felt great!! No pain anywhere. It lasted about 2 days. Could the sting be the reason?

Hmm never stung with anything but honey bees. Hey if it works. Lol

Well it wasn't intentional! LOL All I know is I felt great afterwards. I may have to look into this!

Bee and wasp venom are two different types. My daughter is anaphylactic to wasp and hornet venom but not bees. I would allergy test prior to trying this treatment.

I used to be deathly allergic to al bee stings. Did shots for years as a kid & again as adult. I would love to try this but will have to get retested first obviously. How long does it work for though? Is it like a monthly treatment or something?

I will believe that. It gives your immune system something to attack other than its own cells! Good luck!!

There is a theory of swallowing pig parasites to help with autoimmune diseases as it gives it something else to attack

I ordered bee venom lotion, from http://www.dancingbeeacres.com/ I spoke with the guy who raises the bees and is so knowledgeable! I haven't tried it yet, but plan to. He says for painful joint areas like fingers, wrists or toes to use the venom lotion instead of bee stings.

Yes, if you're not allergic. Here in Texas, I have to take 2 Benadryls everytime that I'm in the yard it seems. Fire-ants and wasps

As usual many people comment with advice - non of whom have the first idea what they're talking about (sigh*)

I have been treating myself for RA with bee stings for 4 years (after getting accidentally stung and then feeling as though my joints were in heaven). It is (as far as my research has shown me) unheard of for anyone who has RA to be allergic to bee venom. If anyone IS allergic who has RA I'd be most interested to hear about it of course as never say never... I would recommend if anyone is interested in trying it as a natural therapy to get reversible Tweezers to focus the sting on target areas (acupressure points work best, not necessarily straight on the joint) and start with a test sting (epipen at the ready just incase) building up to no more than 40 stings/3 days and doing it for no more than a month at a time. Doctors will all tell you you're mad so dont bother 'checking with your doc' as someone else helplessly suggested, though this is a legit method of arthritis treatment known even to ancient Egyptians. There's not too much literature out there sadly but there is an (old) book by Charles mraz. Who's going to put up funding for something that can't be made into a multimillion dollar chemical pill anyhow(???).. I'd be happy to advise anyone on the practical way to do this if anyone is interested PM me. Please note this will kill all bees you use (so do it mindfully and put them out of their misery ASAP afterwards as they don't die immediately)...needless to say this is only for the absolutely desperate and you will need nerves of steel.

Ps wasps and bees are completely different and so is their venom

This sent my mind spinning. I have RA and I'm not allergic to bees. My twin sister is allergic to bees and doesn't have RA.

I was trying to get flowers into my garden accedently broke a beehive on the ground.. By the time i got up to run they were in my shirt in my air i was stung at least 10 times. İt did not take my pain away it caused it to hurt more. I read the same thing many years ago about bees. That did not work for me. I remember telling myself i got stung it should help with artrites. Dont belive everything you read.!

Here's a link about some basic info: http://www.healthline.com/health-slideshow/bee-venom-arthritis#7. So I ordered the bee venom last August but was too scared to try it - as I had a severe local reaction to a bee sting years ago. But yesterday after all this chat I decided to give it a go with people around, in case I had a reaction. I didn't have an adverse reaction, and in fact it helped. I'm also on a strict anti inflammatory diet, all kinds of supplements and detox methods. I used it in the morning and at night. This morning my usual problem joints are not as bad. My friend who uses bee venom therapy for lyme, injects bee venom (which is easier than stinging herself) - she gets it from the same guy I got the bee venom cream. I have researched a lot on this, Terry Wahls doesn't see a benefit in trying it. So I waited because I couldn't find any reputable doctor who supports it. But sometimes what works for one person may work for another - or not. And I wanted to try it. And I wanted to be safe about it. I think we all are willing to try things that aren't necessarily supported by doctors, so do what seems right for you...

Do the bees die after they sting someone?

Me too. I just read that the bee dies, not for me.

Yep, no thx!

If this actually works, it would be nice if they could harvest the venom and make it into an injectable. Instead on having to physically use bees and sting yourself. I don't think I could ever do it. And considering that bees are on the endangered species list, I'd be hard pressed to use them in this manner. You would think there would be an easier way to do this.

dora it works believe me. This has been done for centuries for arthritis.
