A Lyme disease sufferer gets her husband to sting her with bees 30 times a week as she believes it helps with her symptoms.

Ingrid Watt, 36, buys bees online and then asks her partner Darren to hold the bees against her back with a tweezer until they sting her. She leaves the stings in her back for 20 minutes to get the desired effect.

As strange as this practice sounds, Ingrid believes that the venom is bringing the symptoms of her disease under control, something that the medicines prescribed to her haven’t been able to do.

She insists that the pain is worth it and that she feels healthier than ever before. Ingrid believes that she contracted Lyme disease while helping with out with lambing near her home in Inverness.
