The air of well-being, a gift of bees

Patrice Percie of Sert is an agricultural engineer. After 15 years of professional beekeeping in the Lot et Garonne with 400 hives, he set up a company that sells mainly fresh pollen and propolis. In 2011, he sold the structure which now has twenty employees, including a researcher working on propolis and nutritional properties of fresh pollen. Patrice Percie of Sert is passionate about science and scientific research. He was particularly interested in the volatiles of the hive that come from beeswax and propolis, the resin that bees collect our country on the buds of poplar and sterilizes the air hives.
Bees communicate with each other using the “dance” as Von Frisch discovered early last century; but also use of hormonal substances: Pheromones are also natural and volatile chemicals.

All the social functioning of the hive depends particularly on more than 50 pheromones that have effects on the physiology and / or behavior of colonies that use these chemicals to constantly adapt to the environment. Royal pheromone emitted by the queen is the most famous; She maintaining social cohesion in the hive. Brood also emits substances that express and anticipate the needs for care and food.

These hormones could justify all or part of the therapeutic effects observed in humans by several institutions in Austria, Germany and several countries in Eastern Europe. The goal is then to scientifically confirm the effects seen by a clinical double-blind study against placebo and to determine their origin.
This ongoing research work will continue during the beekeeping season 2015, with the medical community participation. Collaborating in the research program of prestigious institutes such as CESAMO-CNRS in Bordeaux, INRA Avignon, the Faculty of Science and Medicine of Fez in Morocco. These programs are supported by the Aquitaine region whom we thank, by the department and by Europe.
The aim is to offer the public a therapy wellness through air hives for migraine courses and trends as respiratory failure have specialized Austrians and Germans centers. All with scientific prop that allows secure and reliable, this new practice.
