Wax moth - well-known to each beekeeper pest of hives. The butterfly itself is practically harmless, and does not eat anything, but the larvae of the wax moth eat honey, pergue, wax, litter in the hive, sometimes even the larvae of bees and smaller caterpillars of their own kind. They also entangle the honeycomb with silk, not allowing bees to care for the larvae and leading to the death of part of the brood.
For treatment of different diseases wax moth larvae are used - medium-sized (up to 20 mm) light yellow caterpillars, inactive and very voracious. Of these, home-made tinctures are prepared, which when taken are taken internally.
It is interesting
It is not known to whom and when the first one came to mind was to make a tincture of wax moth larvae. Perhaps it was a way for the beekeepers to gain at least some benefit from the hated pest. And then those who prefer to be treated with nontraditional drugs, the patients actively spread the rumor about the miracle cure of the medicine.
The rationale for the effectiveness of wax moth tincture in the treatment of diseases is small. Among them:
- several scientific papers devoted to the study of the composition of the larvae themselves. They found substances that improve the functioning of the cardiovascular and endocrine systems of the body, but in such modest amounts that the tincture of wax moth is inferior in properties to various plant preparations, and treatment of wax moth diseases in calculating only these substances is irrational.
- Investigations of the "professors" unknown in scientific circles, who discovered in the larvae an enzyme of ceramics (still not known to chemists), which effectively destroys bacterial cells in the body.
Officially, it is considered that the tincture of wax moth is a placebo, the expediency of the appointment of which for the treatment of any diseases is ensured by the patient's conviction of a successful outcome (a person believes that the remedy will help him heal). However, this does not prevent thousands of traditional healers from prescribing tincture from the larva of wax moth to trusting patients, regardless of the severity of the disease, and the patients themselves - to drink this remedy instead of the medications proven by many years of medical practice and really effective.
"When my daughter discovered asthma, we decided to go first to the local grandmother - the folk healer. She advised us to begin treatment with a wax moth, she said that this is the most reliable remedy. First we were confused by the price of pleasure - for the full course it was necessary to pay 3000 rubles - and then the fact that after two months of treatment the child's condition only worsened. Cough became permanent, choking daughter began and at night. We went to the hospital, they told us that it was still on time, otherwise it could have ended badly. "
Tincture of wax moth as a means of treatment
Initially tincture of wax moth was intended for the treatment of tuberculosis. Even there have been attempts to scientifically explain its effectiveness - allegedly, the same enzyme of ceraza that breaks fats and allows larvae to feed on wax, safely splits also the lipid envelopes of Koch's rod and leads to the death of the pathogen of tuberculosis.
Even though there is no "ceraza" enzyme in nature (there is no scientific evidence of its existence), there are questions about its penetration into the lungs themselves and selective effects on Koch's wand. Why, for example, the enzyme does not destroy as effectively the phospholipid walls of other cells: for example, cells of Escherichia coli, brain cells or heart, finally.
However, shortly after the success, the wax moth funds were used not only to treat tuberculosis, but also to fight diseases not associated with bacterial infections. For example, the means are carried out:
- cancer treatment
- treatment of varicose veins
- treatment of prostatitis
- treatment of atherosclerosis
- fighting with nervous disorders
- treatment of impotence and infertility in men
…and many many others.
It is obvious that one remedy can not effectively treat such a variety of diseases - traditional healers simply exploit the well-known name of the drug and faith in it. In this case, patients themselves willingly check the healing properties of wax moles on themselves and their relatives, which creates scope for charlatans.
No certified doctor or licensed clinic prescribes tincture of wax moth even as a supporting or prophylactic agent.
It is useful to draw a conclusion for themselves: treatment with wax moth larvae is possible only as an additional measure to the basic treatment. To refuse treatment by recognized methods in favor of wax moth tincture, especially when dealing with such serious diseases as oncology and tuberculosis, it is impossible.
But even when deciding whether to use the product, it is necessary to consult a doctor who is ready to take responsibility for the result of applying the remedy to yourself.
"I never knew what it was and what the wax moth was treating. Her son was treated for tuberculosis, as it turned out, and they prescribed me for varicose veins. In parallel - leeches three times a month and heating with mustard plasters. This is very tiring. The second month I am doing, there is no living place on my feet. But something must come out. "
Indications and how to use the tincture
There are some theoretical premises to say that treatment with wax moth tincture can be shown in the following cases:
- with atherosclerosis
- with diseases of the cardiovascular system
- at a lowered arterial pressure.
It is the substances useful in these diseases that were reliably found in the larvae themselves. All other indications are solely the initiative of the people's healers:
- premature ejaculation
- disorders of the nervous system
- premenstrual syndrome
- cardiac ischemia.
Especially doubtful is the treatment with a wax moth of varicose veins - no relation either to the larvae or to the alcohol in the tincture to the expansion of the veins do not have.
It is also necessary to be sure that the tincture will not cause an allergic reaction when applied, which is typical for many beekeeping products.
Judging by the responses in the network, the medicine from wax moth larvae is prescribed by folk doctors even with viral infections - influenza or poliomyelitis. Following such recommendations can be dangerous, because the tincture does not affect the virus itself, and without proper treatment, the clinical condition may worsen.
Dosage in the treatment with wax moth extract is usually prescribed depending on the strength of the tincture itself. 25% tincture is drunk 6-8 drops three times a day, diluting them with any amount of water. 10% of the drug use 10-15 drops three times a day. From the specific nature of the disease, the dosage usually does not change.
"There is no equal in the treatment of tuberculosis of wax moths. I myself have cured it and advise everyone. I had tuberculosis in both lungs in the upper lobes. He could neither breathe nor move normally. Medicines were prescribed so much that there was simply no money to buy them. For two months I drank a wax moth without a single pill, on the X-ray showed that there was a small hearth in the upper lobe of the right lung. This tool really works, a few more months, and I will be a healthy person. "
Tincture wax moths own hands: recipes and cooking rules
Tincture wax moth is usually made by beekeepers or private beekeeping companies. They also usually can directly buy a wax mole for treatment.
To prepare tincture wax moth used fairly large caterpillars of the penultimate age. On the medicinal properties of the tincture, the age of the larvae does not affect almost in any way (it is impossible to use only the most adult larvae that have stopped feeding and ready to pupate), but the larger each individual larva, the less it will be required for the preparation of the medicine.
Larvae of wax moths are simply poured with alcohol (sometimes vodka) in a mass ratio of 1:10 for a 10% tincture or 1: 4 for a 25% tincture. The vessel with the tincture is tightly and hermetically closed and placed for 2-3 months in a dark cool room for infusion.
Possible side effects and contraindications
To date, it is not known about side effects when treating a large wax moth. Healers usually warn patients that during the reception, sometimes there may be allergic reactions and worsen well-being. In these cases, the tincture should be discontinued.
"Even when I was tormented by my heart, I learned that I was curing a tincture of wax moth. It turned out that it is good for preventing heart attack and stroke. I tried to drink it, I drank three vials according to the instructions, but did not feel a particular result. Although the pain began to happen less often, the state of health did not improve. "
Unambiguous contraindications to the use of tincture of wax moth are pregnancy, breast-feeding and children's age - up to 14 years. Also, one should not use tincture for people with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.
