Alfredo Fachini, Scientific Director of B Natural, will speak at the conference “Apitherapy: quality, research, experience“, organized by the Associazione Italiana Apiterapia. The conference will be held in Apimell, the most important international trade show specialized in the beekeeping sector, that will take place at Piacenza Expo form the 1st to the 3rd March 2019. Participation is free and open to everyone.
Apitherapy encompasses the use of beehive products including propolis, honey, pollen, royal jelly and bee venom as alternative and integrative ways to treat many illnesses and to alleviate pain from injuries both chronic and acute.
Apitherapy is a consolidated and widespread reality in several European countries, mainly in Eastern (Russia, Romania, Hungary etc. but also in Germany, France and Spain it is increasing), as well as in the Americas. In Italy it is still at an early stage, fighting for escaping the stereotype of “grandmother’s remedies” and reaching the reliability that deserves, based on innovative medical researches.
The Associazione Italiana Apiterapia, founded and chaired by Dr. Aristide Colonna, was born with the aim of spreading the knowledge of apitherapy in Italy and to create a network of doctors, beekeepers, researchers and wellness operators interested in developing its practice.
B Natural’s focus on producing Propolis extracts able to retain all the natural power, but also to deliver a real, science-based therapeutic effect, can only lead to a strong understanding of the Association’s objectives. Dr. Fachini’s participation at the conference, with a speech about “Propolis Quality and Standarization”, is a concrete sign of this proximity.
