Thanks. I had a bad toothache recently so I am drinking
urine mixed w/propolis to rid myself of the infection. Pain and
swelling is gone. I put propolis in old urine today for my hair and
skin. The smell was still pretty pungent even though I used a dropperful,
I doubt anyone can detect it now, but I am using perfume just in case. :-)
Thanks again, I really appreciate the info. I did some research on propolis,
Although the fact that bee's propolis has been used for thousands of years may be enough to convince most people about it's health benefits, we dig scientific journals to satisfy some skeptics.
Let's see how medical Science conforms ancient wisdom.
Improving Immune System
Professor S. Scheller, the head of a team of four doctors at the Institute for Microbiology at the Medical Academy in Poland found that propolis is able to stimulate the immune system.
It stimulates the formation of antibodies to build body resistance to many diseases. It also helps the body in releasing substance against cellular deterioration.
He also concluded that other propolis health benefits may include improved physical, intellectual and sexual performance and makes injured tissue heal faster.
The study also concluded that propolis is non toxic.
Another benefits of propolis is in treating second degree burns. Research showed that propolis cream gave about the same result as currently prescribed cream.
However, propolis cream reduce patient's inflammation and lead to a faster healing.
Various studies have confirmed that propolis stimulates enzyme systems, cell metabolism, circulation, collagen formation and improved healing of burn wounds.
It is believe to be a result of a substance called arginine.
