Bee venom acupuncture for PD?


Yes you heard it right-potential benefit from bee venom acupuncture in Parkinson’s disease (PD). What next you may say? But breathe easy, its from a study form the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine. The treatment, in addition to conventional PD treatment, shows significant improvements in gait speed, PDQL score, and activities of daily living.



I am not sure I will be in a hurry to send my patients for this unconventional treatment based on a this open labelled, prospective, uncontrolled study of 11 subjects.
