Myeloma patient and bee venom: a case study

This morning, while taking a break to read a recent Science Daily article on bee venom tested as a “smart bomb” to target cancer cells (, I was reminded of a post I wrote, three years ago!!!, about an Iranian multiple myeloma patient who was treated, successfully it seemed (seems?), with bee stings. Here is the link to that post:

Well, at the time I didn’t have access to the full study. After checking online this morning, though, I found it…yes, the whole kit and caboodle: It is a short, easy and intriguing text, so I highly recommend that you go have a look at it.

Now, I am not suggesting that we should all go out and get stung by bees (ouchhh!), but we cannot deny that this is a thought-provoking case of a myeloma patient whose symptoms got considerably worse with chemotherapy, to the point where he was bedridden, but improved under the controlled administration of bee venom…


  1. Well if that’s the case, then perhaps homeopathic apis mellifica (bee venom), used to treat stings, might be of use here?

  2. Dear Margaret,

    Is there any evidence that Manuka Honey has any healing effects on myeloma?????

    Sincerely Robert Freeman
