“BEE IN BALANCE: A Guide to Healing the Whole Person with Honeybees, Oriental Medicine, & Common Sense” by Amber Rose. This is an updated version of the 1994 edition, to be released on November 2, 2013 – many updates since last printing. Amber has a PhD.,L.Ac., LMSW and has been a healer all her life.
After graduating with special honors from the Universities of Chicago and Iowa, she went on to study at the Traditional Acupuncture Institute in Columbia/Laurel, Maryland. Just as her psychotherapy experience alerted her to the value of acupuncture, Amber’s acupuncture experience led her to Bee Venom Therapy (BVT) or Bee-Acupuncture.
Amber believes that the bee sting was the first acupuncture needle. She feels that modern day acupuncture is an attempt to recreate the bee sting: the needle being the stinger and the use of moxibustion being the heat or burning sensation from the venom. In this unique book, Amber shares her discovery of the healing miracles available with honeybees and all their products.This approach to healing is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. It is a synthesis of her experience with psychotherapy, acupuncture, spirituality, and the remarkable healing power of honeybees. This book is the Bible of Bee-Acupuncture. It has already become a classic!
In the last few years there have been several double blind studies with injectable venom examining the healing components of bee venom for MS, HIV/AIDS, and cancer. There are even studies using “nanobees,” tiny particles delivering cell-killing bee toxin to cancer cells, while leaving healthy cells intact. This is very exciting but not surprising to Dr. Rose. Amber, who uses live honeybees, has known for a long time that bee venom helps the body heal itself. The original version of “Bee In Balance” was written in 1994, less than a year after Amber began her healing journey with the bees. It has been out of print for many years.
This brand new updated 4th edition to be released in November 2013 includes over 20 years of experiences and anecdotes, bee-acupuncture for humans and animals, as well her keynote speech in Vancouver, B.C., Canada on HIV/AIDS research that she conducted herself with live bee stings from 1994-97. If you know anyone who has an auto-immune disease, a chronic illness, or chronic pain, this book is a MUST READ!
