Thanks to our young friend, Amber W., , who did some searching about this topic, I decided to look for some research on propolis and endometriosis.  I am amazed daily at what God’s little creatures, the honeybees, have been designed to do.  Turns out that propolis and its anti-inflammatory properties help with the pain of endometriosis,  but also produce an unexplained increase in conception among women with enodmetriosis, who take propolis!

In a study from way back in 2003, as reported in Fertility and Sterility it was found that:

  • Women with endometriosis who have been unable to get pregnant may have a more successful outcome by taking bee propolis, according to a preliminary study in Fertility and Sterility (2003;80:S32). This is encouraging for the millions of women with endometriosis who are suffering from infertility.
  • In the new preliminary study, 40 women with mild endometriosis and primary infertility (i.e., they had never been pregnant) who had unsuccessfully tried to get pregnant for at least two years were assigned to receive 500 mg twice a day of bee propolis or placebo for nine months. The number of pregnancies was recorded during the treatment period.
  • Women taking bee propolis had a significantly higher pregnancy rate than those taking the placebo. The number of women who became pregnant in the treatment and placebo groups was 60 and 20%, respectively. No adverse effects were reported by the women taking bee propolis.

I always wonder why this kind of research doesn’t get more press, and why further studies have not been done.  Could it be that since propolis is a natural substance, no one will make millions on it??  People in other countries all over the world us it and much research is being done on propolis in Europe and Asia.  We need to get the word out about this amazing natural healer!

Isaiah 43

8 Lead out those who have eyes but are blind, who have ears but are deaf.
All the nations gather together and the peoples assemble. which of their gods foretold this and proclaimed to us the former things?  Let them bring in their witnesses to prove they were right, so that others may hear and say, “It is true.”
10 “You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,  “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me  and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed,  nor will there be one after me.
11 I, even I, am the Lord, and apart from me there is no savior.

12 I have revealed and saved and proclaimed— I, and not some foreign god among you. You are my witnesses,”  declares the Lord, “that I am God.
