Honey Bee Therapy (also known as bee sting therapy or apitherapy, involves the injection of honey bee venom subcutaneously, either naturally (using the honey bee and its sting), or artificially (injecting the venom extracts via syringe).

Honey bee venom contains anti-inflammatory substances that are believed to be responsible for the beneficial effects seen when they are allowed to sting patients with severe pain syndromes (for example, rheumatoid arthritis), and some neurological syndromes (for example, multiple sclerosis).

Many other illness are being treated with honey bee stings, and active research is defining the optimal clinical indications and mechanisms underlying the benefits of honey bee sting therapy. Other bee products are also used in medicine.
