About beehive air inhalation

Beehive air has been used to treat illnesses for many years. Since World War II there have been continual improvements and the Austrian family Hüttner played a notable role in this. In recent years especially, there have been more and more people, some medical doctors among them, who have built on their insights. They have engaged vigorously with this—in all its simplicity—incredibly efficient application.

The Austrian Heinrich Hüttner played a significant role in the development of the different possibilities for treatments using beehive air. In 1986 already he realized the beneficial effects on a common cold. For Hüttner this was the start of continual research and further development of the forms of beehive air inhalation, finding a wide scope for application in spa facilities and even in veterinary medicine.

Special milestones on this road were various steps in the development of the technical implementation of the applying beehive air. Decisive in this were the initial good experiences with a childhood friend of Hüttner’s, whose huge respiratory problems were sufficiently relieved through inhalations that he could once again take part in working life. This experience was the push Hüttner needed to further the potentials of beehive air inhalation. From here on it was only a minor step to the building of the first Kurhaus (spa) in 1989. More were soon to follow. With its development—from the technical foundations up to the computer control of the inhalation apparatuses—the flourishing business grew rapidly. A museum for beekeeping and natural remedies was even opened in Tyrol in 2004. The occasion for this was Hüttner’s ever intensifying occupation with the deeper historical background and early documentation of bee-related medicine.

Since then many different innovations in the areas of healthcare and land cultivation have been developed, from antibodies against the varroa destructor, to fertility treatments, to cancer fighting substances.

In the actual beehive air inhalation too new insights are made. Meanwhile for example a long list of illnesses exists which are noticeably improved after application of beehive air treatment. Among other things, the combatting of some types of pain has shown to be successful. Beehive air inhalation has proven to be very effective against respiratory illnesses, but the most effective has turned out to be the fight against immune disorders, such as allergies, susceptibility to infections, or chronic sinusitis. The dependable efficacy of beehive air has by now caught the attention of noteworthy representatives from the medical research community. Presently, people from the whole of Germany and other countries are treated with beehive air and the decisive success of the inhalation draws people from beyond Germany, and even Europe.


Beehive air inhalation Beehive air inhalation One drills a hole in the top a beehive and attaches a ventilator, blowing the air from the hive through a hose into a mask from which the client breathes. After approximately 20 sittings of half an hour each the maximum effectiveness is reached. Generally at this stage the client feel a clear improvement in their affliction.

With certain illnesses, like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (“smoker’s lung”) no full recovery is to be expected, but only a partial easing of symptoms. In this case beehive air inhalation must be repeated yearly.

Beehive air inhalation, despite already being a success story, is still in its initial phase. Much scientific investigation is still required. There are no results yet from long term studies, so for the time being one must mainly rely on the statements of clients regarding successful recoveries.

Meanwhile a research centre has been set up, which is to scientifically underpin the effectiveness of the beehive air inhalation. This is taking place under medical supervision.  A detailed account of medical history and continuous monitoring of conditions before, during, and after the inhalation are vital factors in treating patients responsibly. This includes regular checking of respiratory parameters.

Of course there is the issue of possible contraindications and incidents in the course of the inhalation. The answer is simple: the inhalation can be immediate interrupted should any adverse reactions occur. Fortunately, in the long history of beehive air inhalation there has not a single instance of contraindication, side effect, overdose, allergy, or intolerance.

Especially with respiratory illnesses like COPD, bronchitis, asthma or sinusitis the inhalation shows itself to be very efficient. With immune disorders like allergies, rheumatism, or neurodermatitis a marked improvement in the level of discomfort can be observed.

For clients the special website is also of interest, because it allows them to virtually estimate the extent and duration of their inhalation course in advance.

In this sense beehive air inhalation provides reasons to be hopeful that in the near future an effective, natural, simple, cheap, and also very efficient inhalation for young and old will be available.
