The York County Beekeepers Association will be sponsoring an Apitherapy workshop and symposium in co-ordination with the American Apitherapist Society. The event will take place at the York Harbor Inn, in York Maine, April 28, Saturday and 29, Sunday. This workshop has 3 instructors that are of the highest regard in their field. They are all from the American Apitherapy Society. Two of them have claim to speaking Internationally on the topic of Apitherapy. We are so fortunate to have them all come to Maine, right here in York County.

Allen Dennison, MD, graduated from Harvard University in Biology and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1980. He is currently working with the Depts. of Microbiology, Pharmacy and Wound Care (Division of Nursing) at Brown University’s R. I. Hospital, to re-establish honey as a preferred dressing component for all surgical wounds, with special attention to antibiotic-resistant bacteria. He is an active clinical teacher at Brown University and Boston University Medical Schools.
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. This will be an enlightening and informative event for all in attendance. To learn how to use the products of the hive to improve your own, your families and friends health is something you wont want to miss. There is even a segment on Veterinarian Apitherapy for the pets. Come learn more at this Symposium in Southern Maine. Once your convinced you don’t want to miss this workshop, you can fill out the registration on the Flyer and mail it to Peggy Pride. The information is all on the flyer. You can get more registration information from the Flyer.
