Evolving Concepts Of Medicines

Many countries have experienced a significant increase in  the use of traditional medicines including bee products since the advent of COVID 19 pandemic.

Clinical Research

Clinical research in several countries using bee products as a treatment or adjunct treatment for COVID 19 is illustrating the long-held knowledge of what modern medicines refers to as  anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties.

A Difference Of Approach

But bee medicines do not work like pharmaceuticals. Their action relies on extraordinarily complex chemical interactions rather than single molecules. They work more by balancing and  disabling rather than  by targeting and destroying.

An Important Time For Medicine

the International Federation of Apitherapy  and The International Propolis Research Group see the present time as a real and important opportunity to present  and promote the compelling  body of  scientific evidence relating to the therapeutic  value of Bee Medicines in relation to the diseases of time.

A Coming Together

Together the IFA  and IPRG have formed  The Global Bee Medicine Group  to promote scientific and medical  research  into the use of Bee Medicines – Apitherapy and Apiceuticals

The GBMG invite academic, scientific,  health and medical research groups and individuals to join our global online community to help collate, coordinate, and disseminate research  knowledge about the remarkable properties of bee products : Honey, Propolis, Bee Venom, Pollen, Royal Jelly and more .
