"Honey has been used for thousands of years to heal. It has a property of preserving things. It preserves itself because it's the bees' bank account. It's their energy," said Dr. Allen Dennison of the Medical Associates of Rhode Island.

Dennison, an internist and assistant bee keeper, said he's been a bee-believer for more than 30 years. And he's passing along his extensive knowledge to other health care professionals.
