The benefits of camel milk for autistic children
(NaturalHealth365) There are many benefits of camel milk – especially for autistic children. In many parts of the world, camel milk is used to treat many ailments and now some are using it to treat autism. Camel’s milk is non-allergenic and is given to premature babies in hospitals in the Middle East.
Parents are utilizing camel milk on their children with autism and reporting improvements in symptoms such as, better sleep; increased motor planning and spatial awareness; increased eye contact; better language and improved gastrointestinal function.
Finding ways to reduce inflammation and eliminate disease
Scientist Amnon Gonenne believes that inflammation is a key component in autism and states that camel milk is beneficial in calming the inflammation associated with autism. The owner of Milk from Eden, a camel milk farm, agrees with Dr. Gonenne. He states that better results are seen in children with milder diagnoses of autism as well as those with ADHD – however some parents are reporting gains in children who are more severely impacted.
Camel milk shown to kill cancer cells
A study published in 2012 by the Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology states that camel milk (but not bovine milk) induced cancer cell death in HepG2 and MCF7 and oxidative stress mediated mechanisms. The scientists believe this could explain the anecdotal evidence for the successful use of camel milk in the treatment of various medical conditions. Another study published by BMC Immunology explored camel whey protein on diabetic mice and demonstrated the benefits of improving the healing and closure of diabetic wounds and restoring the immune response.
The Journal of Allergy and Asthma Proceeding published a study in which children who had allergies to cow’s milk were tested for reactions to camel milk. They discovered that 80 percent of children were not allergic to camel’s milk making it a viable alternative to cow’s milk.
Food Chemistry published an article in which phospholipids of human milk, cow’s milk, mare milk and camel milk were compared. Camel milk had the highest content of phospholipids and can be among the considered types of milk for infants and toddlers who need alternatives or fortifiers and suggested it could be used for functional food for adults as well.
Hope for hepatitis C patients
The most recent study published in Virology Journal in September of 2012, Camel IgGs showed ability to recognize Hepatitis C virus peptides with a significant titer in comparison with human IgGs – which failed to do it. Camel lactoferrin was capable of inhibiting the intracellular HCV.
Finally a paper published in the International Journal of Human Development discusses several cases of children and adults with autism who made wonderful progress while on camel’s milk. The writers state that children under 10 has phenomenal benefits while children over 15 had wonderful gains, but once the camel milk was stopped, their symptoms returned prompting parents to keep the teens on it long term.
Can we get camel milk in the United States?
The short answer is it’s difficult to find and the laws vary by state. In most states, the dairies are allowed to sell the milk directly from the farms to customers – not on store shelves. Milk is allowed to be sold, depending on the state, in raw form, pasteurized, or cow share program.
