Dr. Bee Sting

The sting of a honey bee held by Haj Omar Abulhassan, a health practitioner, is seen during a treatment session of a patient suffering from neck problems in the treatment room of his home in Cairo, Egypt, November 10, 2018. After reading about the benefits of bees in the Koran, Abulhassan, 30, decided five years ago to raise the insects and use the venom in alternative therapy. He believes bee stings can relieve pain and cure illnesses such as rheumatism.
