In the treatment of coronavirus, programs should be developed in which bee products and herbs will dominate - my many years of experience in apiculture confirm this hypothesis. I pay special attention to propolis, honeydew honey, royal jelly and pollen. Tea from herbs - peppermint, sage, nettle, larch and pine syrup, plus bee putty, has health properties for coronavirus treatment. Nature cures all diseases and is a cure for coronavirus, shows us that products containing melanin (chokeberry, blueberry, blackberry, cranberry, red beet, wild elderberry, black currant, cope with fighting coronavirus. The second source of melanin is sunbathing in the sun A good therapy for coronavirus is also inhalation of air from the hive, The air filling the hive house is free of bacteria, viruses and pathogenic fungi. Prophylaxis and stay in such a room is called ulotherapy. The smell of fresh honey, propolis, wax, bee pollen has a beneficial effect on the central system nervous, respiratory, cardiovascular, sleep quality is completely improved.
