Bees are usually something most of us shy away from.
Not people in China though, report News24.
They’re rushing to bee sting acupuncturists because they believe the venom can prevent deadly cancers.
And it’s not as crazy as it sounds…
Could bee venom protect you from cancer?
It still remains to be seen just how much bee venom would bring on the best cancer fighting effects.
If being stung by bees multiple times doesn’t appeal to you, there’s another form of bee-cancer therapy you should try.
Propolis – the stuff bees use to make repairs in their hives – is good for cancer too!
Propolis has a strong reputation as a natural healer, writes Nutrition & Healing’s natural health specialist, Dr Jonathan Wright. It’s used to treat sore throats, allergies, burns, and a wide range of other illnesses and ailments… Including cancer.
A study by the University of Chicago Medicine reveals caffeic acid phenethyl ester, or CAPE – a compound in propolis – shows serious potential for early-stage prostate cancer treatment!
That’s pretty exciting news! And a whole lot less painful than fighting cancer with bee stings.
You can find a myriad of products containing propolis in many natural-foods stores and stores specialising in dietary supplements. If you’re at high risk of cancer, speak to your doctor about trying it.
