MS Patient Uses Bee Stings To Treat Her Condition

April 5, 2010

UK (ChattajBox) – A woman who had lost sensation in her body and her mobility is back on her feet after undergoing a treatment known as Bee Venom Therapy (BVT), a process that involves regular bee stings over the course of several months.

Sami Chugg, a 45-year-old MS sufferer, had lost the ability to move on her own, and her body was almost completely numb. She couldn’t even walk.

But the charity worker took a chance on BVT, and it paid off.

Now, 18 months after starting the treatment, she has regained her mobility and can feel her body again.

“Most people would be terrified by the prospect of being stung by a bee,” Chugg said.

“But when you have a condition like MS, that involves the numbing of the body, any kind of sensation is welcome – even if it’s from a bee sting.

“You use a pair of tweezers and get hold of a single bee. Then you gradually desensitize your body to the sting by injecting it in and out of your skin a few times.

“You have to build it up slowly – you start with two, then four, then six. Ten to 14 was my average for each session.

“It had an immediate effect because it has a kind of psychological, mental effect. I used to feel elated for about two hours after the treatment.”

Chugg estimates she received around 1,500 stings over the course of 18-months, and she doesn’t regret it for a moment.

“It’s changed my life and my approach to life. It is manna from heaven.”

Her success with the treatments lends further credibility to claims of the power of bee venom.

Georgetown University is currently conducting a year long study on the effects of BVT, funded by the MS Society of America.
