Propolis, a substance processed by bees from resin which they gather from trees and plants, is used to safeguard the health of the hive, and research studies have shown that its powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agents can be beneficial to humans too. It has proved effective in treating skin complaints, wounds and burns, respiratory problems such as asthma and bronchitis, and in alleviating arthritis, rheumatism and gastro-intestinal complaints. Most importantly, it has shown that it could be a natural alternative to antibiotics and that it may have the ability to boost the immune system. The author explains how to use it as part of everyday care, what products are available and how to make your own preparations. Full resources and references are included.
