The Australian Apitherapy Association hopes to encourage further research into the important health benefits of bee medicine.

Our role is to encourage understanding of how apitherapy is successfully used around the world to treat many difficult illnesses including cancer, skin cancer, arthritis, asthma and Alzheimer’s.

There is considerable research available on the benefits of bee medicine for these diseases. However, as these treatments are little known or understood it is the role of the Association to try to foster understanding and possible incorporation of bee medicine as complementary, integrative treatment.

We urge an interested medical practitioners, pharmacists and bee keepers to join us to learn about these benefits.

Alignment with International Apitherapy Associations.

The Australian Apitherapy Association has been developed to align with the goals and principles of the International Apitherapy Federation

The International Federation received some welcome publicity from CNN’s Dr Sanjay Gupta in 2019 about the treatment of arthritis with bee venom therapy:

The Australian President Dr Bridget Goodwin is presenting a peer reviewed paper at the fourth international Apitherapy Congress in May 2021. The paper is an Australian case study on the treatment of basal cell carcinoma using bee products and cold plasma.

This conference coincides with the Third Propolis in Human and Bee Health Conference of International Propolis Research Group

During Covid there has been considerable published research on the benefits of propolis in the treatment and prevention of Covid patients. Many articles can be viewed in the research pages of our website.
