Find Solace in Camel Milk
“Water is the soul, milk is the life.”
– Old Algerian Nomadic Proverb
If you’re amongst those who have a family member or friend suffering from ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) or lactose intolerance, camel milk is just the thing you’re looking for. The sheer power of its constituents makes it rank it amongst the top superfoods in the world.
Here’s looking at why camel milk is widely recognized as a potent consumable around the globe.
Blessing in fluidic disguise – For the lactose intolerant
Everybody in India drinks milk. But can everybody digest it? Research suggests only 18% Indians can.
Lactose intolerance is a widespread digestive crisis. Approximately 75% of the Earth’s populace is affected by this problem. People plagued with lactose intolerance are recommended to steer clear of dairy products.But hey! Completely removing these from your daily intake is quite a daunting task (and an unwise thing to do).
Fortunately for you, we have the perfect substitute
Hundreds of scientists have conducted research on the subject and concluded that camel milk is flawlessly fit for consumption for those allergic to traditional dairy products. Here’s why:
No side effects or undesirable reactions.
No traces of beta-lactoglobin, a protein that triggers allergic reactions
Easy to digest.
The levels of lactose, despite being almost the same as those in cow milk, do not have any effect on lactose intolerant patients
Yes, it contains some percentage of lactose, but the primary difference lies in the proteins that are:
Lesser in numbers than cow or goat milk proteins
Easier to digest since the intrinsic proteins get squeezed out in the ageing process (like aged cheese)
What the experts reckon (and recommend!)
“Camel milk also contains lactose but of the non-allergic variety, so any lactose-intolerant person who can’t drink cow’s milk, can drink camel milk.”
– Ruquiya Alusmanim, Consultant Chief of the Nutrition and Dietetics department and a Diabetic Educator at Baksh Hospital in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
“Camel milk has a little bit of a salty taste but generally it looks and tastes like any milk. It is pure white milk and is low in fat, so it has no yellow color on it. The big difference is when you digest it. You do not get a heavy pitted feeling in your stomach and it is quite refreshing.”
– RLauren Brisbane, Chair of the Australian Camel Industry Association
ASD – Autism Spectrum Disorder
Autism is an awful disease to be born/diagnosed with. And we understand the magnitude of the ailment and the difficulties it brings with it:
Auditory processing delays, expressive/receptive language delays.
The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention states that most ASD patients experience simultaneous other disorders.
Many people around the globe who tried camel milk for autistic patients have experienced unprecedented results. They reckon that autism, like celiac disease, is a byproduct of autoimmune problems. The patient’s immune system attacks his or her own strong cells.
The hoofed beast has a stout immune system unlike ours. Camel milk adds nanobodies and antibodies to the human bloodstream – they can reach inaccessible areas to kill infections – and revitalizes the body.
Yes, research suggests that camel milk can take the edge off ASD symptoms.
Here’s what the experts have to say
“My son, Jonah,was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) at three years of age. He suffered loss of language at 15 to 18 months, hyperactivity, and sensitivity to noise and fixation on objects and water. He had difficulty interacting with others, while biting and engaging in aggressive behaviour which led to dismissal from two pre-schools. The rest is history… the morning after my son ingested camel milk, he demonstrated astonishing improvement in behaviour including eye contact, communication, emotional expression (“I really love you”; “You do so much for me”) and self-organisation.”
