Cautions for Drinking Camel Milk

I am often asked if there are any reasons for not consuming camel milk.  There are several points that should be considered:

  1. Iron Levels – If your iron levels are elevated, then you will need to monitor them if you are consuming camel milk on a regular basis.  I suggest lowering the iron levels slightly before beginning the camel milk if you have serious health issues.  On the other hand, if iron levels are low and you are taking an iron supplement, then levels should also be monitored.  Patients with low levels of iron are often able to reduce their dosages of iron supplements after consuming camel milk for a period of time.  (This is not an immediate issue, but one that will take months of consuming the milk on a daily basis.)
  2. Casein Allergy – If a patient has been tested for allergies to dairy and they have been shown to have an allergy to the casein in milk, then there is an 85% chance that they will develop an allergy to the camel milk.  If they have a lactase allergy, they will usually be fine.  I have seen children develop an allergy to the camel milk over and over if they have tested positive for casein allergies.
  3. Anesthesia – You absolutely must discontinue all camel milk before any surgery requiring anesthesia.  Patients who consume camel milk on a regular basis have shown to require elevated levels of anesthesia while undergoing surgery.  This can become a life-threatening issue when elevated levels of anesthesia are administered.  Doctors have become very concerned.  The same thing applies with a local anesthetic, such as novocaine, carbocaine, lidocaine and others, when used for such things as dental work.  The pain medication wears off quickly and more is needed.  This is not safe nor healthy and could cause problems.
  4. Plateau Dosage – Most patients start the camel milk gradually and build up to a maximum dosage for their specific health problem.  I have found that after 6-10 months on an elevated dosage, the patient often begins to feel unwell.  The dosage must then be reduced to a maintenance dosage.  The patient continues to experience excellent results once this is regulated.
  5. Immunotherapy Drugs – If a patient has had an organ transplant and is on immunosuppressive medication, then they must check with their physician before consuming camel milk.  Most organ transplant patients must avoid anything that can boost the immune system so that their body does not reject the transplanted organ.
  6. Kidney Disease – Many physicians advise patients with serious kidney disease to avoid dairy products.  If a patient has a serious kidney disease, then they should check with their doctor before consuming camel milk, especially patients who are on dialysis.
  7. Drug Interaction – There are drugs that should not be taken with milk.  If a patient is consuming medication that should not be taken with milk, then they should consult their physician or pharmacist to make sure it is acceptable to consume camel milk.  If a medication is to be taken for only a short period of time, then once the medication is finished, it is usually acceptable to resume the camel milk after consulting your physician.

Vaccines Without Your Knowledge

Did you know that hospitals can vaccinate you or your child without your knowledge?  Let me refer you to:

If this doesn’t give you nightmares, then I do not know what will!  One report comes from a nurse whistleblower in a neonatal intensive care unit of a hospital.  Nurse Michelle Rowton revealed that premature infants were being given CDC’s recommended vaccines causing severe life-threatening results.  Since the Affordable Care Act, it is now hospital policy that if a patient has not had a flu or pneumococcal vaccine, they are automatically administered to the patient without their knowledge or permission.  It is hospital and health department policy!

When you go to the hospital for surgery and sign the consent form required by all hospitals, you should be careful what you sign.  Be aware of the word “biogenics” in the text of the consent form.  This means that you will be given any vaccine deemed “necessary” by the hospital without  your direct knowledge!  When you sign any hospital consent form you should always write, “I Do Not Want Any Vaccines.”  “No Vaccines!”  And then be sure to initial each and every page of the form.  Also make your statement verbally in front of a friend or family member who will later be able to testify that you requested “No Vaccines.”

Let me tell you of a hospital that I worked with on a case of a very sick baby.  The baby had been born with heart problems and had undergone five operations within his short 7 months of life.  He had never been out of the hospital since his birth.  The hospital told the parents that the child would not eat on its own.  Each time they tried the baby cried and they had to use a feeding tube.  The parents asked the doctors to consult with me on camel milk.  The hospital agreed and the baby was started on the camel milk.  It was amazing!  The baby loved it and the crying stopped.  The hospital agreed to finally let the baby go home.  The day before he was to go home the doctors decided to suddenly, with no explanation, stop the milk and give the baby a group of vaccinations.  Within a few hours the baby died!  The hospital staff could not understand why the baby had such a drastic reaction to “recommended vaccines!”  This is supposed to be one of the top children’s hospitals in the U.S.!

Spraying for Zika Virus Affects Autistic Children

I have received call after call from parents of autistic children who are frantic about the spraying of insecticides and larvicides for the zika virus.  These children have developed seizures, rashes, insomnia, and behavioral issues that started with the spraying of the insecticides and larvicides used for mosquito control relating to the zika virus.  Children in states such as Florida, Texas, and Arizona are especially hard hit by the spraying.  The effect it is having on the immune system of these already fragile children is very serious.  My office has been able to develop homeopathic remedies for the specific larvicides and pesticides being sprayed in each area and this has helped.

Autistic children in the areas where there is heavy spraying are going backwards, not forwards.  I am absolutely appalled by suggestions from medical officials who advise pregnant women to “spray their body down” with insecticides every day before going outside.  Not one of those so called officials have bothered to alert these women about the negative side effects of insecticides on the unborn fetus or the mother’s health. Insecticides mimic hormones, and therefore could possibly cause a rise in hormone related cancers, such as breast cancer.  There are many natural mosquito repellants, but I do not hear any government official promoting these.  (Some of the most influential lobbyists in Washington represent pesticide and insecticide manufacturers!)  I urge expectant mothers and anyone with a weakened immune system to seek alternative, more natural, insect repellants.

Camel Milk in Cosmeceuticals

Cosmeceuticals are the combination of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals and include products such as anti-dandruff shampoos, moisturizers, acne creams, anti-aging creams and more.

Camel milk is a perfect component for these products.  The immunoglobulins in camel milk have powerful antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties.  This makes the milk an excellent choice for developing creams and lotions for the treatment of acne and psoriasis.  The therapeutic properties of the antibodies in the milk are able to reduce inflammation as well as repair scar tissue from acne.  It reduces “on site” inflammation to acne pimples and restores the skin to a healthy appearance.

The cosmetic advantages from the milk come from the minerals and electrolytes which can slow down the aging process, fight free radical damage to the skin, and stabilize the skin’s RNA and DNA.  Because camel milk antibodies act as carrying agents they are able to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin for ultimate benefits.

The lactose in the milk acts as a skin conditioner by retaining the moisture.  The high level of vitamin C found in camel milk offers antioxidant and tissue repair properties.  Vitamin C is also necessary for the production of collagen which adds firmness and suppleness to the skin.

Billions of dollars are spent annually on cosmetics.  Camel milk is beginning to be recognized worldwide and many pharmaceutical companies are developing new lines of cosmeceuticals based on the amazing properties found not only in camel milk but camel urine as well.

Camel Milk for Athletes

Athletes are encouraged to drink camel milk in countries such as Kenya.  It is considered a super food.  How does it affect an athlete’s performance?  Milk is perfect for rehydration.  The proteins and amino acids in the milk and the rate of digestion gives camel milk a unique role as a performance enhancing nutritional drink for athletes.  One university study concluded that milk was much more effective than other sports drinks after exercise.  Some studies show that adding chocolate to the milk further increases endurance and shortens recovery time in such sports as cycling and running.  Camel milk with its high levels of lactoferrin supports weight loss efforts while maintaining lean muscle mass.  Therefore, athletes who consume camel milk after training sessions are able to protect their lean muscle mass, shorten their recovery time and increase their endurance.  Camel milk has higher levels of lactoferrin than either goat or cow milk, thereby making it the best choice as a sports drink.  So after that next race have a delicious glass of chocolate camel’s milk!

Benefits of Camel Milk Versus Soy Milk

Over the past 28 years some of the sickest patients I have seen have been vegetarians.  Many have abnormal levels of thyroid and reproductive hormones.  Soy has long been touted for its great health benefits.  But when it comes to choosing a milk, camel milk wins over soy every time with my patients.  Why?  Isoflavones found in soy milk can suppress thyroid function.  Camel milk can actually improve thyroid function due to the elevated levels of thyroxin found in the milk.  Soy isoflavones can raise estrogen levels and suppress progesterone levels.  Camel milk does not.  Did you know that just one soy drink twice a week can lower a male’s sperm count by as much as 40%?

I have seen children in my office with goiters who had consumed soy milk for years.  Once the milk was removed from their diets the goiters resolved themselves.  As early as the 1950’s experts knew that infants on soy milk had 3 times the thyroid problems as children not consuming soy milk.  As little as 4 ounces per day of soy milk can have a negative effect on the thyroid.  The government of Israel has issued warnings against soy milk and voiced concerns over the negative effects of soy on the developing brains and reproductive systems of children.  Camel milk supports the immune system of infants with the high levels of antibodies, immunoglobulins and lactoferrin.  The thyroxin in camel milk supports thyroid function in patients.  I will always recommend patients try camel milk over soy if they do not have an allergy to the casein in camel milk.
