Few people are aware of the vast importance of the honeybee to our everyday lives. While most think of honey, it is estimated that thirty-three percent of everything that reaches the table owes a debt to the honeybee. Over 90 fruits and vegetables including apples, melons, nut crops, cherries, berries, avocados plus alfalfa and clover seed for cattle feed are dependent upon honeybee pollination. As well as the importance of pollination, honey and other bees products have been linked to an amazing array of health benefits.
Patients experiencing the side effects of chemotherapy have been given hope in the form of a unique food supplement called LifeMel.
Developed with over 30 years of research, LifeMel, made by honeybees, is proven in a number of cases to boost immunity before, during and after chemotherapy.
A low white blood cell count or Neutropenia, a common side effect of chemotherapy, is a blood disorder that diminishes the number of infection-fighting cells which destroy bacteria in the body, leaving sufferers open to developing illnesses and facing the potentially life-threatening situation where they are no longer well enough to carry on with the treatment needed to fight their cancer.
LifeMel is 100% natural and has been shown in a significant percentage of people to improve low white blood cell count. It is produced by honeybees in Israel, which are fed on a specific diet including selected herbs such as Siberian ginseng, echinacea and calendula.
LifeMel costs £37.50 and is available through pharmacies and health shops nationwide. For more research and information visit www.lifemel.com
ARTHRITIS & JOINT PAIN
When Bill Flynn's daughter developed an arthritic hip, he turned to his beehives for inspiration. He treated her condition with the reddish-brown scraps he collected from inside the hives, which emerged as an extraordinary means of curbing the pain of stiff joints. This chance discovery has earned Bill and his bees the thanks of thousands of people. This remarkable remedy is called Propolis - a sticky, antiseptic resin used by bees to seal and clean the inside of their hives.
- Every dot of propolis is different because it is gathered by many bees from many plants in all sorts of places on different days.
- Many beekeepers suck a small piece to soothe sore throats, mouth ulcers and coughs.
- Propolis was highly prized by "The Father of Medicine" Hypocrates.
- In recent medical trials, scientists have found propolis to have amazing properties: anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, antibiotic properties and it actually boosts our immune system.
