This is an online slide show and audio recording of my beehive medicine seminar. The course is comprehensive and covers bee mythology, history, bee biology, environmental issues facing the bees and an introduction to apitherapy, the medical application of products from the beehive. The course presents the clinical use of bee pollen, royal jelly, propolis, beeswax, honey and bee venom along with research, indications and applications for their use. The course includes clinical footage, client interviews and a demonstration of how to make natural medicines using beehive products.
Honeybees have played a vital role in traditional medicine. Bee products have been used to enhance human health as far back as the Mesolithic era (circa 10,000-3,000BC). There is growing scientific evidence suggesting that bee products promote healing by improving circulation, decreasing inflammation and stimulating a healthy immune response. We will look at how traditional medicine has approached these bee products along with modern research to suggest convincing evidence for using them as an integral part of a natural medicine toolbox.

Tamara graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. in research psychology and completed a second major in mental health psychology at Southern Connecticut State University. She attended Tristate Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine; a three-year Chinese medical institute in New York City and received her first diploma in acupuncture. She obtained a second degree, an M.S. in Oriental Medicine after attending a four-year program at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco.
Her training continued with extensive experiences in community medicine in clinics such as the Sidney Hillman Healthcare Clinic in New York City, Fourteenth Street Methadone Clinic, Oakland and the Zen Hospice Project in San Francisco. She has trained extensively with Mark Seem, Kiiko Matsumoto, Bob Flaws, Honora Lee Wolfe, Ted Kaptchuk, Chip Chase, Jeffery Yuen, Arya Nielson, Jim McCormick, Peter Thompson, Eric Stevens and Donna Finnando.
Her osteopathic training has been an integration of two Japanese based neuromuscular reeducation systems, Sotai-ho and Anma, and the powerful Chinese system of Tui-na. These modalities are all focused on returning natural body alignment by working with the breath and moving toward comfort rather than adjusting toward pain while untwisting muscular holding patterns.
Tamara has been practicing natural medicine for over 20 years. Her clinic is located in Marin County, California. Her practice of osteo-acupuncture includes the utilization of counterstrain, myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy (trigger point release), soft tissue manipulation, visceral manipulation, lymphatic flow support, skeletal manipulation and the incorporation of apitherapy and Bee Venom Therapy (BVT), extensive herbal medicines and nutritional support offers her clients a comprehensive natural medicine foundation for assisting in the healing processes of most conditions.
