On WebMD, Date at June 18, 2014 — Both acupuncture and bee-venom acupuncture improved symptoms in people with Parkinson’s disease, a small study shows.
Acupuncture has been used in Asia for many years. Studies have shown that it can help protect nerve cells like the nerve cells destroyed by diseases and reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Researchers have also been studying whether bee venom can relieve nerve cell inflammation. This is one of the first studies to test whether acupuncture and bee venom acupuncture can help Parkinson’s disease.
How Bee-Venom Acupuncture Might Help and what is Bee venom acupuncture？
Humans use the stinging organs of bees as needles to perform different methods of acupuncture along the meridian skin and acupuncture points to prevent and treat diseases, which is called bee venom therapy. The liquid medicine of the bee needle can be automatically injected into the human body.
Some Parkinson’s symptoms include muscle spasms that can cause pain and trouble moving. Bee venom may help relax these muscles.
In this study, 35 Parkinson’s disease patients who had received a stable dose were randomly divided into three groups. One group received acupuncture, the other received bee venom acupuncture, and the third group did not. The final study showed that the symptoms of patients receiving bee venom acupuncture or conventional acupuncture improved, and there were no serious side effects in both groups, while the symptoms of those who did not receive treatment did not change.
The results are promising, but more research is needed before drawing any firm conclusions.
These findings were presented at a medical conference, They should be considered preliminary as they have not yet undergone the “peer review” process.
