Psalms from the Hive

by Jeannie Saum

So many years, the word’s been hidden

Across the ocean, curtains closed.

Propolis’ power kept unbidden.

Bees’ best kept secret,

Should no longer be forbidden,

Clover, Bee, and Revery

Reverie (revery) –(n.) state of dreamy meditation or fanciful musing; a fantastic, visionary, or impractical idea

 

I am continuously amazed at the research I find about propolis.  My latest discovery is an article on the National Institute of Health Website, entitled, ” Stan Scheller: The Forerunner of Clinical Studies on Using Propolis for Poor and Chronic Nonhealing Wounds”.   This study was done back in the 1960’s and 70’s by a researcher in Poland, Stan Scheller.  He collected his own propolis and made extracts the same way we do.  He soaked propolis in alcohol, shaking it occasionally, for 4 days, then filtered it. He then used it to treat poor and chronic nonhealing

wounds.

In 1975, poor and chronic non-healing wounds, in 100 patients, were treated between 1972 and 1974.  The target group, consisted of 12 patients with burns, 30 with venous crural ulceration, 10 with local sacral bone pressure ulcers, 23 with suppurative osteitis and arthritis, 15 with suppurative postoperative local wound complications, and 10 with infected traumatic wounds. All the 100 patients, described in the research had been unsuccessfully treated in the previous hospitals. Some people had suffered with the wounds for months and years.  All the patients were treated with 3% ethanol propolis solution. The patients with osteitis and fistulas underwent wound rinsing every day, whereas on the rest of the patients the propolis extract dressings were applied, which were changed every day.

The use of propolis on many kinds of serious burns and wounds showed incredible healing results and this report shows amazing before-and-after pictures.  What amazes me is that nothing seems to have ever come of this!  Propolis showed 80-100% healing of the serious burns and wounds, except for bone infection, which I understand is one
of the most difficult to get rid of.   Just more proof of the amazing power of propolis.

Psalm 91

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,  so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
