April 28-29, 2012
York Harbor Inn, York Harbor, ME
480 York Street York Harbor, ME 03911

Please join us in York Harbor, just one hour north of Boston, MA for this event. You will be able to learn from three experienced Apitherapists, and intereact with them and other people interested in Apitherapy. This ancient form of medicine with products of the beehive (honey, pollen, propolis, bee venom, and royal jelly) is used for health and healing throughout the world. The use of these products to maintain health is currently becoming well recognized in mainstream as well as scientific publications, and their power to heal when illness or accident occurs is also documented. Conditions such as arthritis, MS, pain, and wounds are known to respond well to Apitherapy. Come learn more at this Symposium in Southern Maine.
