In July 1956, Prf. Fang Zhu started his apitherapy healthcare practice with experiments, observations and researches at home and abroad. Then on February 14, 1958, he wrote the paper “Bee—the Friend of Health” and published it in the newspaper “People’s Daily”. In August 1959, the Chinese Medicine Association compiled and published People’s Health Care and Chinese Magazine on Dermatology, which presented papers on treating diseases using bee venom and propolis respectively. Dr Fang Zhu was the first person to come up with the technique of bee acupuncture combining meridians and points.
