I just happened to be watching an old “Unsolved Mysteries” episode today, and they were talking about Multiple Schlerosis, (MS) and bee sting therapy.
Now, what this means is, taking honey bees, and actually letting them sting you, in the affected areas (if you’re having trouble with your feet, for example, you sting on the foot). You do a very intensive regimen of this (pretty much all the time, although frequency varies, I would imagine), and it’s supposed to help stop the symptoms of MS, or even reverse them.
There were quite a few who said it had worked for them, and even the MS Society of America (or whatever the name of the organization) is funding research into this area.
Is there anything to it? Or is it more homeopathy-like quackery?
