Good Day, Thinkers and Revolutionaries! If you’ve been a part of the Thinking community for a while now, you have probably heard about the spectacular benefits of camel milk.

An excellent source of calcium and vitamin B1, camel milk has been used for centuries in nomadic and Bedouin cultures for its natural medicinal properties. According to an article published by, “A study published in the 2005 edition of the “International Journal of Human Development” observed the effects of camel milk consumption, instead of cow milk, on autistic people. Researchers discovered that after a 4-year-old female participant drank camel milk for 40 days, her autism symptoms disappeared. A 15-year-old boy also recovered after 30 days of drinking the milk. In addition, several autistic 21-year-olds consumed camel milk for two weeks and were observed to be quieter and less self-destructive.”

Christina Adams, celebrated author of A Real Boy, reports in Autism File magazine,“Dr. Reuven Yagil, a veteran Israeli camel expert who first described the use of camel milk to treat autism, says, “Autism is not a brain affliction but an autoimmune disease afflicting primarily the intestines.” American-Israeli scientist Dr. Amnon Gonenne agrees that while autism is not defined as an inflammatory disease, it appears that in some cases of autism that exhibit allergic symptoms, there is an active inflammatory component.”

She goes on to say, “Nomads in Algeria have long said, “Water is the soul, milk is the life.” They may be proved right by emerging reports that camel milk, the drink of nomadic peoples from Mongolia to India, may have a healing effect on various diseases. Now parents from around the world, as I did in 2007, are also reporting reduced autism symptoms and increased skills in their ASD children. Better sleep, increased motor planning abilities and spatial awareness, more eye contact, better language and lessened gastrointestinal problems are now celebrated in global internet posts.” 

Many families have implemented camel milk as a part of their child’s biochemical nutritional regimen and have experienced remarkable results.

    thank you for the information

  2. Mary says:

    There is a Facebook camel milk group that can answer your questions Mindy. Lots of autism parents there that have tried camel milk. And yes, you can have an allergic reaction to camel milk. My son doesn’t react to certain farms, and does better with frozen milk.

  3. Mindy Gould says:

    My son is 15 years old and would like to try camels milk. The parents whose kids have responded to camel’s milk – how much are they consuming per day? Thanks very much!

  4. Jen says:

    Is this open to contestants worldwide or just USA?

  5. Kerry Sellers says:

    I tried camels milk from the camel milk association, my son had an allergic response. 🙁
    Someone mentioned it could actually be an allergy to what the camel is fed.
    Is that possible??
    I’ve heard such wonderful things about cm.

    • Martina says:

      Kerry – depending on what you mean by allergic response, it could be due to Cerebral Folate Deficiency (CFD). My children did not do well with Camel milk, and that was my first clue that CFD could be involved. We are now treating for CFD and finally seeing some results. 🙂

    Thanks for this amazing opportunity! Can you clarify the terms of this a little please? Should the essay be about your experience with camel milk or with autism? How long should be it be and when is the deadline? Do you want the families to blog after, or is the blog the essay? Sorry if I missed the part that answers these (it was another night of little sleep!).
