Customer Successes Using BEE Rescue

Psalms from the Hive, by Jeannie Saum

How can people not believe

That God did not create these little bees

Who create perfect hexagonal beeswax cells

And make treasures in the hive that can treat people’s ills?

We’ve been sharing some customer stories and pictures for several years at fairs and festivals, telling about their successes using propolis on wounds.  Though the pictures can be found on our Facebook page, it recently occurred to me that we have never shared them on this blog, where you can see the pictures AND read the story.  So, today, I am going to do this and here is a warning:

 IF YOU ARE SQUEAMISH ABOUT WOUND PICTURES, THEN SKIP THIS BLOG ENTRY. DO NOT SCROLL DOWN ANY FURTHER!

Now that you have been forewarned, if you want to see and hear about some amazing success stories about the Power of Propolis, keep reading.

Customer Story #1

Laurie heard on FaceBook about an old high school friend who had undergone elbow surgery and was having difficulty getting the little 2″ wound to heal.  It had been 2 months since the surgery, the doctors had tried all kinds of treatments, yet the wound was still gaping open and weeping.  This fellow, a law enforcement officer, was using up all his sick leave. Laurie sent him a tube of our BEE Rescue to try. He took pictures for us to document what happened.

This is what his wound looked like after 2 months of treatment by his doctors, trying to get this to close up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wound had closed up after five days of using BEE Rescue Cream.

 

 

He got the BEE Rescue and started using it, applying three times a day. He was able to go back to work at this point.

He continued using the BEE Rescue Cream and took this picture after one month.  He said he continued to use the BEE Rescue Cream after this and said it  diminished the scar into a almost indiscernible line.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Customer Story #2

Larry, a 60 something diabetic was working on his running lawnmower one day a few summers ago, when he fell over it.  he gashed his calf open and had to be rushed to the ER.  He received 20+ stitches.  Three weeks later, he called and asked for BEE Rescue.  At this point, his wound was black, oozing infection and gangrenous. It was strongly recommended that he go to the hospital, but he refused.  He stated he was going to use the propolis cream.  He also volunteered to have his wife take a picture each week to document his progress.

Larry had his wife put BEE Rescue Cream on his wound twice a day an re-bandage it.  This is the result, after one week!  All the gangrenous tissue is gone.
The infection is gone and a soft scab is starting to form. AMAZING! And look at the skin around the wound.  It looks better, too.

 

 

Larry’s leg after 4 weeks with BEE Rescue put on 2 times a day.

 

 

They continued to put BEE Rescue Cream on the wound twice a day.

 

 

 

 

Pretty amazing transformation using BEE Rescue Cream for 10 weeks.

 

 

And here it is after 10 weeks, with twice a day Bee Rescue Cream treatment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Customer #3

A young couple bought BEE Rescue from us at a festival a few years ago.  They used it on their chickens, on pecking wounds.  Here are the before and after pictures, 5 days apart.

Surgical incision open for 2 months

We continue to be amazed at the amazing effects of propolis!  An old friend of the Dotsons and recent BEEpothecary customer has had phenomenal help getting his two month old wound to close up, using propolis salve.  We want to share this success with you.

Several months ago, Thom, from Michigan, had surgery on his elbow.  After the surgery, the incision just would not heal and the doctors could not find anything that worked to close this wound.  When we heard of his plight, the surgical incision had been open for two months and he had missed two months of work because of this.
We sent him some propolis salve right away.  Thom started using it as soon as he received it and took pictures to document the wound’s progress.

Within five days, his wound had closed significantly, as seen in the next photo.

Wound healing progress after 5 days of treatment with propolis salve

Needless to say, he and we, were thrilled with this progress!  Thom continued to use the propolis salve and recently sent us a picture of his wound after a month of treatment.  This is what his wound looks like now!

Imagine what propolis can do for other kinds of skin ailments!  Acne, psoriasis, rosacea, shingles, eczema, bug bites, burns, rashes, etc.  There is clinical research to confirm the success of propolis treatment on these types of skin conditions.  You can find references to these studies in previous posts on this blog, or look up the research yourself at the National Institute of Health website, http://www.nlm.nih.gov or

Green Medicine’s Website at http://www.greenmedinfo.com.

Research is great, but personal experience is even better, as far as we are concerned!  Nothing thrills us more than our personal success  or the success of friends and customers, using the amazing BEE propolis!  Does propolis really work  – absolutely  YES! – CASED CLOSED!

Every week, it seems, I read about more research that is being done on propolis, honey and pollen.  I get a daily e- newsletter from Apitherapy News which reports the latest findings from apitherapy (the use of bee products for medicinal purposes) research.  If interested, you can sign up for this newsletter at http://apitherapy.blogspot.com.
The articles are sometimes difficult to understand, as they are medical abstracts.  I will attempt to summarize some here, in layperson’s words!

A study was posted in October 2013, titled “Total monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibition by chestnut honey, pollen and propolis” by researchers, O. Yildiz, F. Karahali, Z. Can, H. Sahin, and S. Kolayli,  from   the Department of Chemistry, Science Faculty, Karadeniz Technical University, Trabzon, Turkey.  This study was done to see if propolis, honey or pollen would function as MAO inhibitors (Monoamine oxidase), like many drugs on the market that are used to treat depression and other neurodegenerative illnesses, like Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.

They found that propolis, honey and pollen all exhibited substantial inhibition of MAO, with propolis having the highest effect. Their Image result for propolisconclusion states that bee products possess a sedative effect and may be effective in protecting humans against depression and similar diseases.  It is amazing to me that a substances created by God’s little creatures, the honeybees, could do such amazing things for us humans. And they do it without college degrees, and laboratories, and artificially made chemicals, and multimillion dollar pharmaceutical companies backing them!

Another study was published in October, 2013 showing that Manuka Honey (from the Manuka trees in New Zealand)  decreases the virulence of the super bug, MRSA! This study is titled, Proteomic and genomic analysis of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) exposed to manuka honey in vitro demonstrated down-regulation of virulence markers, (Whew, that’s a mouthful!), by J Antimicrob Chemother.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a dangerous pathogen. It is resistance to multiple antibiotics and is very prevalent in healthcare facilities and is easily spread.  It is a serious threat to human health that requires novel interventions.  Manuka honey is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent that is gaining acceptance in the topical treatment of wounds.  But the way it works is only partially understood.  This study set out to investigate the effects of manuka honey on MRSA at a molecular level.Honey
In laboratory experiments, they found that glucose, one of the major sugars in honey, altered the genes in the MRSA  bacteria, reduced its cell division ability and its ability to invade healthy cell tissues.  Authors of this study conclude that these effects of honey on MRSA  need to be investigated by more use on actual MRSA infected patients.  My daughters, who are nurses, tell me that manuka honey IS being used here in the Columbus, Ohio area, to treat wounds, bedsores, and MRSA infections in hospitals and nursing homes.  I also inquired about its use when caring for my mother in Wichita Kansas, and was told medicinal honey is part of their wound care protocol as well.  This is encouraging news!  Natural treasures from our Creator’s flora and fauna CAN be of incredible benefit to our health and well-being!  BEE Power!!

Isaiah 45

2 I will go before you  and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron.
I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the  Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
For the sake of Jacob my servant, of Israel my chosen, I summon you by name and bestow on you a  title of honor, though you do not acknowledge me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me,
so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting people may know there is none besides me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other.
I form the light and create darkness,  I bring prosperity and create disaster;  I, the Lord, do all these things.
