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.

    • Toobawassim –

      You are in my thoughts. As camel’s milk is a natural food and not usually thought of as doses I would give however much a child will take. Start small and see how it goes. We gave about 4 ounces twice a day. We didn’t add anything but friends did for their kids and I think that is fine.

      From my friend who lived in Kuwait… “Yes they’re now selling camel’s milk in some grocery stores, which is pretty recent. I think Sultan Center sells it and I believe another store called, “Arth altabi3a” sells it too. That’s the arabic name. Not sure what it’s called in English. I’m pretty sure that Sultan center in Sha’ab sells camel’s milk. If not, she can ask them and they may be able to direct her.”

      Best of luck. Your child is blessed to have you.
