Approximately eight years ago I had tendonitis so bad I could not even lift a single piece of paper. As a new beekeeper I had heard that beekeepers do not get arthritis and read a little about bee sting therapy.
Not wanting to take pills or get a cortisone injection I decided to start with some bee-stings.
I could feel three very distinct locations on my elbow that were especially tender to the touch so decided that was a good place to start. I marked them with an X and held an ice cube to the spots one at a time.
I harvested the bees the day before and had them in a jar with a toilet paper holder cut on an angle at the bottom to give them something to cling to and a small amount of honey and water.
Initially I picked the bees up by the head and tried to place them on the X but they’d turn their bodies on me and sting my fingers which is not where I wanted my bee sting therapy!
