The reality of reactions

A science book, talking about what causes contact with the bee picket, says: "There is great painful irritation. The bite zone becomes inflamed, which can lead to serious circulatory disorders. The victim soon palms slightly, feels dizzy, and feels like vomiting.

Soon his heart begins to bark wildly, his face flushes, and his blood pressure experiences a dangerous descent. Then, the body begins to swell - not only in the place of the bite, but practically everywhere, until the deformation.
If it does not receive immediate medical help, it can be very dangerous. "This fragment allows us to perceive the distorted and even exaggerated vision of what could be an allergic reaction. It seems that the transformation is described to an abnormal being. However, I would like to emphasize that, in Mexican Apitherapy, THERE ARE NO EXACTLY REACTIONS.

I have discovered, on the basis of study and research, the main causes that produce them. Taking this into account, when I first receive a patient, I try to see the situations that might induce a reaction. In this way, I establish a complete and precise treatment, without any complication. This methodology has been shared with all my students, who now make up the Mexican Society of Apitherapy. So that when they apply bee stings to their patients, they avoid any adverse effects to the patient. It is true that the bee sting produces a reddish lift of the skin, with a central point where the insect acted.

However this is a normal irritation due to the dispersing and dilating agents, which allow the therapeutic substances of the bee to penetrate to the bloodstream.


In other countries, a sensitivity test is still applied, which consists in applying the sting of a bee and removing it almost instantaneously, observing the response of the organism. In some of them, the presence of a simple erythema or redness around the picket, for many apitherapists is indicative that the person is allergic and not suitable for treatment with bees. However, here in Mexico and only in the association that I lead, this technique of sensitivity test we do not occupy it, because we consider it unnecessary, besides that from my point of view, it has no scientific or practical foundation. They only create distrust of the patient in the treatment, because we give him to understand that his body could respond aggressively to the substances contained in the sting and if he did not have this preconceived idea, with this methodology we implant in his mind this fear, doing That his body make it a reality. Taking into account what I have mentioned, I invite all apitherapists to know more about the behavior of the human body in front of the chemical elements injected by each bee stinger, taking into account the close mind-body relationship.

Providing his patients with basic information that erases any wrong and negative concept about the bee, since one of the paradigms that people have is that the bee itches, swells, sends you to the hospital or even causes death. So if we change all this negative information, based on ignorance and we provide a positive one based on scientific study, mentioning all the benefits provided by the chemical elements injected by each stinger -mallow called bee venom- we will avoid any kind of reaction Adverse effects.

I want to emphasize that the body is going to reflect a response to the chemical elements that inject each sting. As in small children, when they are vaccinated, their body reflects an immune response that is actually a mechanism of assimilation, but which is not strange and unknown by the body, because it is external. Therefore, this answer is NORMAL. By this I mean that all patients who are subjected to treatment with bee stings, sooner or later may reflect a reaction. I consider that out of 10 patients, nine give them.
