Health and the Honey Bee, by Charles Mraz
By C.Tallon

 Printer friendly page
A Middlebury, Conn., beekeeper named Charles Mraz pioneered apitherapy in the U.S. in the 1930s. Beekeepers began experimenting with apitherapy to treat symptoms of a number of ailments, but it was most commonly used to treat arthritis, acute and chronic injuries such as bursitis and tendonitis, to soften scar tissue and to ease symptoms such as muscle spasms and fatigue associated with multiple sclerosis.

Sweetness in a New Hope for Arthritis Victims:

A recent broadcast of "It's a Miracle" featured the story of a young woman stricken with a debilitating disease.  Her miracle came in the form of a small, fuzzy black and yellow insect known as the honey bee and its stinging power. Yet, this is no surprise.


For centuries, individuals stricken with some debilitating diseases, have been treated with bee stings in order to effectively treat their symptoms.


Health and the Honey Bee (Queen City Publications, 1995) is the personal story of Charles Mraz, the American patriarch of Bee Venom Therapy (BVT) – a 20th century process which has been documented to treat the disease of arthritis by stimulating the adrenal glands to produce cortisol, a hormone that has anti-inflammatory properties.


From his days growing up in the busy metropolis of New York City to his life as a healer living within the serenity of the Vermont mountains, Mraz offers case studies as he describes his fascination and amazement at discovering the mysteries and wonders behind the world of the honey bee – a world which eventually placed him on the path of becoming one of the world’s greatest pioneer healers and renowned personalities of the agricultural and homeopathic worlds.


The book also describes Mraz’s sting application process along with BVT’s effects on other diseases including cancer and multiple sclerosis.  Mraz’s fellow BVT supporters, namely several medical researchers and their work are also discussed, along the brief yet enlightening description of this history, behind the use of BVT, which dates back to ancient times.


Although Charles Mraz is no longer with us to help others combat disease, his words and wisdom lives on in Health and the Honey Bee.  The book may serve as an important catalyst for anyone searching for an alternative method to gain relief and piece of mind in knowing there are alternative ways to take back one’s own health.
