How Raw Camel Milk Helped Her Daughters

In Kuwait, raw camel milk is commonly known to be a medicinal remedy for children who don’t speak. In the US, one stay-at-home mom discusses how it helped treat her daughters’ chronic health problems.

Lauren, whose name has been changed due to the controversy surrounding raw milk, is the mother of two girls. The older daughter has severe allergies to an array of food, seasonal and chemical irritants. The younger daughter had autism spectrum disorder (her diagnosis was cleared following her consumption of raw camel milk).

Lauren originally learned about raw camel milk in her research of natural remedies for treating autism spectrum disorder. She found a camel farmer in her area and went to meet with him to discuss the product and check out the farm to ensure it had safe handling practices. She brought home a small amount and began giving it to her younger daughter medicinally, in small doses. Within weeks, Lauren began to notice that her daughter had begun talking more, making more direct eye contact, and socializing with other children.
Shortly thereafter, Lauren’s older daughter experienced a severe outbreak of hives. Remembering that camel milk was also mentioned as a natural remedy for allergies, Lauren gave her older daughter a glass to drink – and the hives cleared up within 20 minutes.

Now, Lauren keeps raw camel milk in her freezer to have on hand when one of her daughters requires it. She credits the raw milk with helping to heal her children’s autism and allergies and, although worried about the possible legal ramifications of buying the milk says that, first and foremost, her job is to be a good mom and care for her daughters – and this is what helped them.

The Campaign for Real Milk is a project of the nutrition education non-profit, The Weston A. Price Foundation.

  1. Camel milk has been used for centuries as a source nutrition in the Middle East, Asian and North African cultures. Nomads and Bedouins still rely on camel’s milk nutritional properties, while generations of tribes have lived on camel milk entirely with a few dates for months in the harsh desert climate. Desert Farms has now captured their ancient knowledge and locked camel milk tight in a bottle. Desert Farms’ camels live in small family farms in the USA where the average herd is about 6 camels. All Desert Farms camels are pasture-raised and eat a complex diet of hay, grass and alfalfa pellets.
    Containing only milk from USA-based camels and bottled entirely in America, Desert Farms – Camel Milk is available in several distinct varieties: Raw Camel Milk; Raw Camel Milk (Frozen); Raw Camel Milk Kefir; Pasteurized Camel Milk and Raw Camel Milk Colostrum.
    You can buy camel milk directly from Desert Farms website.

  2. My son is 3.4 ..He is autistic. I star to give him long life whole camel milk .250ml..A day. Is it too much..and how long it’s take to notice some change.thanks

    • Sally Fallon Morell responds: Any kind of raw milk is good for autistic children–I assume it is raw camel milk you are giving him?

      You should start slow with the milk–just a couple of spoonfuls, and then build slowly. The milk should be at room temperature. You can build up to 1 quart per day if the child likes it. (Camel milk would be very expensive at these amounts.) I am guessing you should see improvements within 2-3 weeks.

      Other dietary changes that would be helpful is to eliminate processed food/sugar, and feed lots of eggs, bone broth, meat, and give cod liver oil and occasional liver.
