The information was analyzed and processed by means of the hypothesis tests of Mann Whitney and that of means comparison, with an error of 5%, and it was obtained that bee therapy was more effective than the application of the habitual drugs in the rehabilitation of those affected, so that the generalization of its use was suggested to other health services.
