Can bee pollen help relieve pain in my elbow?

by melissa

I decorate pottery for a living using my right hand to hold the pots, my left to decorate. My right elbow feels like "tennis" elbow when we are very busy. I use my right arm alot, walking my 100 lb. rottweiler, which i hope will keep it strong. Has anyone gotten any relief from taking bee pollen? Also my fingers in my right hand get numb sometimes when i am sleeping. I use honey and no white sugar in my coffee, which had helped some.

Angela's Comments:

Great question! I have not known anyone to directly get pain relief from bee pollen. It certainly won't hurt to consume as it will only help supply vital nutrients for health and healing. I would suggest trying royal jelly or propolis instead, as both have shown a strong anti-inflammatory effect in animal studies. Royal jelly in particular is being studied for arthritis. Also, the main compound in propolis, Caffeic Acid Phenethyl Ester or CAPE, has very strong anti-inflammatory properties.

You may also want to try a product called MyoMed, which is a topical pain cream and works very well. If you can't source it, contact The Vitamin Store at and they can ship you a bottle.

how about a bee sting for that elbow?

If you have access to honey bees, you may want to try a bee sting in that elbow. I know it sounds strange but we've helped many people with various aches and pains with a simple sting. Visit the American Apitherapy Society website for more information or feel free to contact us on Facebook at
