CHRONIC WOUNDS AND PROPOLIS

Dear Apitherapy lovers, we have one great information for you. Dr Verica Milojkovic is author of a new book CHRONIC WOUNDS AND PROPOLIS printed by LAMBERT Academic Publishing.




My   Experience  in  the Treatment of  Chronic Wounds

ABSTRACT
The problem of conventional medicine in the treatment of chronic non-healing wounds
can be solved by using propolis. The aim of my work is to give evidence on the
successful treatment of chronic wounds with propolis. Propolis has proved to have
antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antioxidant and regenerative effect. The
introduction of propolis in the treatment of wounds has given the encouraging results
and it has been a challenge for the doctors-apitherapists.

MATHERIALS AND METHODS
After treating the wounds by using the methods of conventional medicine with no
success, propolis has been introduced as a therapy. The patients have taken propoplis
orally and applied it locally on the wound. They have also taken high doses of vitamin C.
Vitamin C is important for the collagen synthesis. The patients have been elderly people
with chronic diseases and atypical wounds in autoimmune diseases. The introduction of
propolis in the treatment of wounds has provided quick therapeutic effect, rehabilitated
the infection of the wound, stopped inflammation and accelerated regeneration of
damaged tissue. For some wounds, it has taken only 30 days to create a scar, while the
larger wounds have healed in 3-4 months. Such results indicate the possibility to make
a clinical study including a larger number of patients.

CONCLUSION
Propolis, a medical miracle from a hive, has given encouraging results in the treatment
of chronic wounds. It is a safe and cost-saving treatment; it enables the wounds to heal
in a shorter period of time, faster recovery and better quality of life.
