    «Good health is a global state which depends on one’s being
    in harmony with one’s natural,
    social and spiritual environment »
    Edgar Pacheco, Guérisseur Kallawayas


    Beehive products can help us to protect ourselves from infections and to fight against them.




    There are two aspects to be considered: health prevention and fight against perverse factors.

    Among these, having a healthy well-adapted diet, breathing in a good quality air, maintaining correct life hygiene; harmonious and loving social relationships and youthfulness of mind, reinforce our acquired Jing and preserve our inborn Jing which all of us have inherited.

    This healthy life will be source for our chidren and grandchildren to have a powerful Yuan Qi. The Chinese estimate that everyone is responsible for one’s descendants up to the seventh generation. Number 7 is symbolic, but it reminds us of a responsibility that, I think, we are not always aware of.

    The marvellous beehive products help us with this prevention.

    The royal jelly:

    • Stimulate the basic metabolism (proteins of very high quality)
    • Tone up the reproductive organ and the sexual functions (by the hormones which it contains).
    • It is regulating of the immunity (wealth in enzymes, amino acids, flavonoïdes).
    • Supports the cardiovascular system and the blood (white blood cells, red, blood platelets)
    • Regulates the production of adrenalin (action on theadrenal glands)

    The propolis

    • Supports the respiratory system; (it is thus useful for all those who use their voice: singers, comedians, teachers, salesmen!)
    • Regenerate tissues and cells by favoring cellular metabolism (action on cellular membranes, in particular)
    • Strengthen the immune system (effect of flavonoïdes on granulocytes and lymphocytes T); it inhibits the bacterial growth and its flavonoïdes has an antiviral action.
    • Action favorable to the cardiovascular system (regulate the bloodpressure, and cholesterol)


    Royal jelly and propolis will strengthen our defense energy Wei by favouring the production of lymphocytes B and T, warming up tissues, stimulating the lungs, skin and mucous membranes; they will oppose penetration and development of germs.

    The honey:

    • Very energizing and defender against the cold (the glucose and the fructose which it contains are very quickly available in the blood)
    • Facilitates osseous growth (by the wealth in minerals: calcium and magnesium)
    • Strengthen natural defences (it contains factors germicides factors : inhibines)
    • Facilitates digestion and absorption of nutriments (by stimulating the gastric juice and the pancreatic juice)
    • Regulates the functioning of the cardiovascular system (role of the acétylcholine on the muscular fibres) and supports the qualitative production of the blood (by the presence of the iron and the cobalt: red cells)
    • Protect the respiratory system (Feng Mi, the honey, is very present for it, in the Chinese pharmacopoeia)
    • Supports the regeneration of the skin

    The pollen and the bee bread:

    • Tone up plastic and psychic vitality (very big wealth in proteins, minerals, vitamins)
    • Tone up sexual functions ( vegetable hormones)
    • Supports the cardiovascular system (role of the rutine) and the blood (production of red cells by, in particular, the lysine and the histidine)
    • Favor the functions of the digestive system (by the méthionine and the leucine, in particular)
    • Protect mucous membranes intestinal (by substances antibiotics substances which it contains, active against some germs of the intestinal flora)
    • Strengthen immunizing system (by its caroténoïdes, the excellent proteins)

    To see more on this subject, the very complete book of Patrice Percie du Sert " Ces pollens qui nous soignent ", last edition 2010, Ed Guy Trédaniel.



    Honey, pollen and bee bread will support our Ying energy by making nutrition of tissues easier, the production of Qi, blood red cells and organic fluids.


    The last two products associated with royal jelly will tone up our vital energy.

    Fen Zang : « Children have no care », 1998

    « Children have a privilege: they are not asked to justify their existence.
    A child is not asked about what he does as a living.
    It is well known: he plays, he cries, he laughs.
    He is alive and that is a good enough reason for living … »

    Christan Bobin, « La merveille et l’obscur » Ed Paroles d’Aube, 1992


    « The alternance Yin/Yang of the seasons is the basis of the creation.
    That is why the alternance of the seasons is the alpha and the omega of things,
    the axis of life and death.
    If their ways are followed, no serious disease can appear»
    Su Wen, chapter 1.


    The Yang, at its maximum during the summer solstice, decreases progressively, nights become longer, parallelly to the increase of Yin.
    Since the 6th of august autumn appears first discreetly, then more significantly: the leaves turn yellow, it is harvesting and transformation period. Have we not all noticed that the storms about the 15th of august state the end of summer? The decrease of Yang energy, the growth of Yin energy, both get balanced at the autumn equinox on the 21st of September. 

    The Lung is the organ whose energy (the Qi) is at its maximum in autumn.  

    The Lungs lead the respiratory Qi through out the entire organism to nourish all the tissues from the very beginning of the day. (about 5 o’clock in the morning). If the Qi of the lungs is insufficient, respiratory, ORL, skin and mucous membrane problems, sadness and melancholy, asthenia, might appear. Some persons realize the occurrence of these problems every autumn.  

     The Lungs energy diffuses the organic liquids in the whole body, the muscles, the skin and the mucous membranes. While this diffusion is badly done, the skin is dry, the nose is blocked, there is sneezing … 
                                                                                                                                                                                         The Lung is « the mother» of Kidneys (see table at the « Home » page). If the energy of Lungs is powerful, the vital energy, whose place is in the Kidneys, will be well fed and prepared for winter.

    The Lungs shelter our « life instinct », from « the very first shout » at our birth to our « last breath ».
    The excess of sadness, pain, worries, anxiety, block and weaken the energy of Lungs. Breathing becomes superficial, of poor quality, and disorders of the respiratory apparatus, skin or mucous membranes may appear.
    Letting free one’s emotions allows, sometimes, their total solving.
    On the contrary, an insufficient respiratory Qi provokes the autumn depressive states, well known facts of sadness and melancholy. 

    The energy of the lungs (Yin) is connected to that of the Large Intestine (Yang). Both contribute particularly to the quality of our immunity.

     Propolis is the hive product which sustains the energy of lungs. 

    • Here are some acupuncture points to massage in autumn et during winter :

    P7( Lieque), P9 (Taiyuan), sustain the energy of the lungs. To be massaged with propolis (as oily solution or cream)

    Are you perplex in front of the hive products stand?!
    - You should prefer the products labelled Organic product

    - Watch out for the dates of expiration and choose those whose date is the latest. 


    A cycle ends, nature is at rest
    and in the depths of the soil another one prepares.
    In the first days of February Yang will again make quiver the branches
    and make sing the birds.
    It is the time of insights, of introspection, in view of a to-come.

    « He who welcomes, gets richer
    He who excludes gets poorer

    He who looks up, looks up at himself
    He who looks down, looks down at himself

    He who forgets unties himself
    He who remembers succeeds

    He who lives perishes of death
    He who lives survives

    According to Chinese traditions, the rise of Yang, which announces the arrival of spring, is done every year about the 6th February. It comes out of Yin on which winter is based. At the moment of the spring equinox, the 22nd of March, the Yin and the Yang are balanced.

    The Liver is the organ whose energetic activity is at maximum in this season.
    It helps energy (the Qi) to freely circulate through the entire body.

    While Qi circulates correctly,
    our energy is mobile, we have « the drive »,
    and digestion is good:
    the bile, necessary to digestion, flows well.

    If the Qi stagnates: aches may appear (articular, muscular, pains of hypochondrias, head aches), the eyes become wet and there is a greater sensitivity to wind....

    The free circulation of Qi is influenced by our emotional state:

    Irritability, anger, frustration slow down the circulation of energy. Spring depression, tiredness, sensation of knot in the throat, distension of breasts and premenstrual pains with women may manifest then (the meridian of the Liver surrounds the genital organs both with women and men).

    The Qi of the liver blocked, it generates emotional tensions and the other way round, emotional tensions block the energy of the liver.

    In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Liver has numerous important functions:
    It stocks the blood, it makes it circulate and regulates it through the entire body; self regulation is favoured by physical activity.
    It nourishes and humidifies all the tissues: muscles and especially the eyes. It assures thus a better protection against infections.
    It manages the tendons and the muscles: consequently if the energy of the liver is not at the « top » this may provoke: cramps, contractions and even tendon tear, tetanus...

    The Liver filters the toxics out of the body: the portal vein drains all the rejects and, after a passage by the kidneys, it throws the waste, the strange substances, the medicines to the liver whose role is to eliminate by the bile.
    In case of excess, the liver does not succeed in doing this job and there is need to be helped.

    • Some acupuncture points to be massaged in spring with propolis (oily solution with propolis or cream with propolis):
    Liver 3
    (Trae Tchong) and Liver 2 (Sing Tsienn)
    Gall bladder 40 (Tsiou siu)
    Apply your thumb on these points and turn on the spot in the apposite clockwise direction (dispersion).


    • Cleaning the Liver with Propolis to detoxicate it

         Propolis "controls" the liver according to the Chinese law of the 5 elements.
    It acts on the blood and the cardio-vascular system: high blood pressure, hypercholesterolemia...
    It acts on infections: bacteria, virus, and fungi.
    It diminishes the desire to drink alcohol and to smoke.
    It has a direct action on liver detoxication.

    How to use it:
      Propolis water:

    - prepare a glass of water, add 60 to 70 drops of hydro-alcoholic propolis solution at 30% or 30 to 35 drops of base tincture.
    - stir: wax deposits on the sides.
    - pour everything into one liter water. To be drunk during the day. Propolised water may be mixed with birch sap.
    Renew the operation for a month.
    Accompany this cure with light eating, essentially season vegetables.

    • Tonifying the Liver with pollen:


    Pollen regulates the metabolism of the liver.
    It acts on the pathologies of the liver: lithiasis, hepatitis, cirrhosis, alcoholism, medicines or other drugs addiction, hyper cholesterolemia, hyper lipidemia, atherosclerosis.
    It has a repairing action on hepatic cells following radiotherapy, chemotherapy.
    It calms anxiety, irritability, stress, insomnia.
    It improves sight.
    It offers the necessary vitality to make projects and to accomplish them. 

    How to use it:
    - 1 to 2 coffee spoons a day, preferentially in the morning, diluted in a liquid (water, fruit juice,) or mixed with compote, yoghourt.
    - Wait 15 to 20 minutes before drinking so that the micro-grains of pollen open into the water.
    Pollen should be taken all spring long.
    Pollen may be replaced by Bee Bread: pollen transformed by bees in the hive.

    • Sustaining the energy of the Liver with royal jelly

    The royal jelly tones up the vital energy of the kidneys which are, in TM, the « mother » of the liver.

    The action of the royal jelly has a lot of common points with pollen, on blood, cardio-vascular system, and mood.
    1 cure of 3 weeks

    Thus your liver in spring is in full energetic form and you may, as, so gently, Chinese tradition says,

    « Stride forward in the morning, hair in the wind »!

    The correct balance of your Liver prepares you also a nice summer, as the liver is the "mother" of heart whose energy must be at maximum in summer.


    If you open your eyes
    here are the irises
    If you reach out your hand
    here are the peonies
    If you spread your hair
    Here are, from fragrance to fragrance
    All the ways of fragrance
    leading to the infinite herbs
    To the fountain
    springing from the tomb

    If you are thirsty yet
    the new garden
