A multidisciplinary approach should be applied in the treatment of chronic wounds.
It is necessary to be patient, professional and persistent in order to help these patients adequately.
The treatment is a long process that requires perfect control of the underlying disease; the therapy is systematic and local.
The aim of my workis to show the evidence of the successful treatment of chronic wounds with propolis.
Propolis has shown antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antioxidant and regenerative effects.
To share personal experiences in the treatment of chronic wounds using propolis orally and locally, high doses of vitamin C and mineral zeolite. The combination of such treatment has influenced rapid healing of chronic wounds and contributed to better quality of life.
Materials and methods:
15 patients, aged 40 to 90, with chronic wounds of different etiology were treated in 2013 and 2014. The patients took propolis orally, high doses of vitamin C, and mineral zeolite. The wounds were locally treated with propolis.
By using propolis in the treatment of chronic wounds with proper detoxification of a body, thus controlling the underlying disease, the wounds have been rehabilitated for a short period of time.
By adopting a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of chronic wounds using apitherapy - prololis and proper detoxification of the body, chronic wounds heal rapidly. Propolis has proven to be a bee product of the future.
