What is Apitherapy?

Apitherapy is a treatment with bee products such as honey, pollen, propolis, royal jelly and bee venom in Turkey. Apitherapy is originally bee venom treatment practised in Eastern countries such as China, Korea and Japan and it is also commonly known as “bee venom therapy” in English.
