Nature has been providing medicines to treat our disease and relieve our suffering for many thousands of years. Most prescribed, synthetic medicines used around the world today still are derived from, or patterned after, natural compounds from plants, animals, and microbes. This is particularly true for drugs that treat infections and cancers. At Hive Health we believe the honeybee is our doctor, who gathers the finest medicines.
