Bee products?

My friend Norm is into herbs,vitamins,and alternative medicine. He has been gushing about bee products-royal jelly ,honey,beeswax ,propolis,etc.

He DOES have a lot of energyand he's pretty healthy. So what do they do,exactly? I'm thinking of getting a supply of royal jelly!

I'm a great supporter of bee products. I make my own herbal remedies and use beeswax as the base for a lot of salves. Unless it is related to diabetis, honey ointment is amazing for ulcers.

Cool! In the tradition of another famous Welshman,Brother Caedfael!

Beeswax also makes a good chapstick,or chapped lips preventative.

Do you grow your own catnip?

Yep! And all sorts - my family have been traditional herbalists for centuries (although I am now illegal).

Actually, that mostly has A LOT to do with a persons state of mind, if they dig some ayurvedic medicin and crap like that it may help them in that sense that it'll make them feel good, because they THINK that they do something good for themselves, though by the fact that i called it crap i laid out plain what i think of alternative medicine; water ain't got no memory! As long it doesn't harm (keeps them from seeing a doctor for example) it's fine i'd say.

BUT: I'm a great friend of bee products, we used honey for thousands of years for basically everything, bees wax is a wonderful alternative to regular candles, it smells and looks just a lot nicer, and it's generally rather useful stuff. Einstein once said that when the bees die, people would die, and they really are ESSENTIAL to our lives, though we may not always recognize that, i'm not familiar with royal jelly though, it's to expensive for me and my doctor said i should cut down on the sweets.

This reminds me...I just saw an episode on TLC of "My Strange Addiction" and this lady was addicted to giving herself bee stings like 15 times a day....It was so weird!
