A patient is stung by a bee as he receives an apitherapy treatment at a hospital in Zhengzhou, in China’s Henan province. Apitherapy is one of the ancient methods of curing diseases by using honey, pollen, bee bread, propolis, royal jelly, apilarnil and bee venom. The therapy is claimed to be of use in several types of arthritis, neurological problems such as insomnia, migraine headaches and neuritis, and skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and herpes.
