Lecture Room A

Did you know there were other products you can steal from the bees besides honey? We focus on the health & nutrition aspect of the bi-products of the beehive. Learn about the health benefits of raw honey, propolis, royal jelly, and wildflower pollen.


Take a lesson from the honeybees. The honeybees are keen experts at producing everything they need to sustain their colony. Thank a beekeeper and scientists who discovered that humans and animals can benefit from the products the honeybees produce. Join us and learn how raw honey can help you sleep better and assist with regulating blood sugar. Learn about propolis and where it comes from. We will explore the benefits of propolis for its anti-inflammatory properties and use against viral, bacterial and fungal infections. If Royal Jelly makes a worker bee the queen of the colony what can Royal Jelly do for us? We have all heard that honey helps with seasonal allergies. What many people don’t realize is that it’s the wildflower pollen in the honey that assists with allergy symptoms.

My adult life has been devoted to studying health and nutrition. I began with first studying vitamins. Naturally with studying vitamins, food comes into play. Thomas Jefferson said, “Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food”. The old adage, you are what you eat is true. If you eat crappy food you will feel like crap. It is not just what you eat, it also what you can digest. When I met my now husband, we made a 40’ diameter herb garden based on the native American Medicine Wheel. This necessitated the need for me to learn about the benefits of herbs. Once we became beekeepers a whole new world of products to explore became apparent. We have been incorporating the use of bee products in our daily life for 10 years.
