2 Day Cure For A Bruise: A Bee Sting

I had to post these as it was my first experience with treating a bruise with a bee sting. Many of you may know this about me, that I recently begin doing Bee Venom Therapy on myself for arthritis in my hands and feet. 

Yes, I'm serious. I sting myself Monday, Wednesday & Friday each week (beginning last week). To reduce pain, inflammation and turn back the clock on arthritis - my knuckles are beginning to get deformed and I'm losing range of motion.

So ANYWAY, I had a bruise on my arm on Monday from who-knows-where and I decided to sting it and see what happens. The results were pretty amazing.

Bee Venom Therapy might not be fore everyone - but it's worked for my Mother, who has severe RA and was on some of the works drugs out there for years. She is now pharmaceutical free, still works and is a total and complete ass-kicker.

She looks younger than ever too - I could handle that! Cheers friends!

Bee Venom Therapy With Jerry Catana

Jerry has been a practicing Apitherapist for 40 years! Apitherapy is the use of all components of the hive for human and animal healing. This includes Bee Venom, Bee Propolis, Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly and of course Raw Local Honey. 

Here's a video of my first official sting session. I've been stung before but only sporadically. Now I'll be stinging every week, Monday Wednesday & Friday for arthritis in my hands and feet.

My Mother has been doing this for 1 year and 2 months now and is off all medications for RA including some of the nastiest ones available like infusions and methotrexate. Methotrexate incidentally is a cancer drug that actually causes cancer.

Enjoy the video and reach out with questions!

PS: Jerry is shirtless in the video as I had just  stung him 9 times in his back. 

And So It Begins; My Journey With Bee Venom Therapy For Arthritic Pain & More


Last night I did it:

I bought a box of bees and some tweezers. From now through the foreseeable future I'll be stinging myself Monday, Wednesday & Friday to reduce inflammation and pain in my hands and feet, hopefully slow or stop the gradual deforming of my knuckles and perhaps I'll even look a little younger. The likelihood is high.

I'll begin small, doing just 6 stings last night on my back, I'll do 9-10 on Thursday. Perhaps I'll do 12 or so on Saturday.

This is how it's done. I've seen it work.

My Mom began Bee Venom Therapy or BVT (in conjunction with juicing and taking all products of the hive such a Royal Jelly, Bee Propolis, Bee Pollen and Raw honey. She consumes these daily and stings now only every other week.


At first she stung A LOT. Doing as many as 35-40 stings 3X's a week. But now since she is off all medications for RA and since she is doing so well- she's been able to reduce quantity and frequency of stings and achieve the same result.

It's a beautiful thing & I want some of it!

Did I mention my Mother also reversed her allergy to dairy in the last year? (unintentionally) Either from the stings or juicing- or both.She also looks 10 years younger easily. Between her beautiful skin and her long shiny hair - damn, my mom is kinda hot!

I'm excited about what BVT will do for me. Perhaps improve my skin in addition to decreasing inflammation? I'm game.The challenge will be stinging myself as I have a hubby that is deathly afraid of bees. It's usually easier to have someone else sting you. I'll have to get creative.

Here's a list of conditions I know have been treated with Bee Venom Therapy & Apitherapy. Apitherapy is ALL products of the hive used to benefit health.


Cancer - all kinds.
Broken Bones
Holes in the heart - (congenital)
Amputee problems with nerves & pain.
Reproductive problems
Menopausal problems
Chronic Pain of any kind
Animals with hip dysplasia (it works great on animals!)
All trauma, car accidents, sprains, strains.
Colds and bronchitis
HIV (this was shown very recently)
These are just the ones I know about- I'm sure the list is 3 times this size. I believe that all human disease & illness can benefit.

Lets do this!
