If the idea of drinking camel milk seems strange to you, how about camel milk as medicine? Scientists have found that a component of camel milk may play a significant role in colon cancer, a disease that is diagnosed in more than 102,000 people per year in the United States alone.

Camel milk inhibits growth of colon cancer and other health potentials

  1. 1. Camel Milk Inhibits Growth of Colon Cancer andother Health PotentialsIf the idea of drinking camel milk seems strange to you, how about camel milk as medicine?Scientists have found that a component of camel milk may play a significant role in coloncancer, a disease that is diagnosed in more than 102,000 people per year in the United Statesalone.What’s special about camel milk?Camels may not be plentiful in the United States (there are about 3,000, according to theAmerican Camel Coalition), but in many parts of Africa and the Middle East, they are a commonsight. Although they are a mode of transportation, camels also are a source of nutritious milkand, in recent years, that milk has been the subject of research for medicinal purposes.One such use came to light in a new study in which researchers found that a component ofcamel milk, called lactoferrin, may stop the growth of colon cancer cells. Lactoferrin hasantioxidant properties and also binds with iron, which could prevent DNA damage associatedwith cancer development.
  2. 2. Camel’s milk is lower in fat and cholesterol than cow’s milk, but contains five times as muchvitamin C. Studies in India show it contains high levels of insulin and is helpful to people withtype 2 diabetes. In India, it is used to treat a range of illnesses. Although it contains lactose, ithas lower amounts than cow’s milk. As yet unavailable in Britain, but Harrods is said to beinterested in stocking it.CONS:Rather watery and salty — an acquired taste.Most people may not have been too familiar with camel milk. But it turns out this milk hasmany benefits for the body and have a better nutrient content that is known as a superfood.Camel milk has been widely consumed in almost all Arab countries, this milk tastes slightlysaltier than other milk and is often produced as cheese.UN organizations dealing with food (Food and Agriculture Organisation / FAO) said that camelmilk is rich in vitamin B note, C and iron content 10 times faster than that of cows milk.In addition to mineral and vitamin contents are high, research has shown that antibodiescontained in the alleged camel milk could help fight cancer, HIV, AIDS, Alzheimers and hepatitisC."Camel milk could be a useful addition to food because it contains calcium and vitamin B andhas a saturated fat content less than cows milk," said a spokesman from the British NutritionFoundation.Another advantage of camel milk is not contain two powerful allergens that have been found incows milk, and has a component of the immune system that may provide benefits to childrenwho are allergic to milk and other foods.Potential components of the immune system in camel milk is expected to help fight somediseases. The researchers speculate that the small size of immunoglobulin or antibodies foundin camel milk is more easily allow it to target the disease-causing foreign substances (antigens)that damage a persons immune system.
  3. 3. Dr. Reuven Yagil, an expert on the physiology of Israel who conducted the study for 5 years saidthat camel milk can be overcome autoimmune disorders that suppress the immune system of aperson.But it still needed further research, because scientific evidence that there has not been enoughto prove the effectiveness of camel milk in the treatment of autoimmune diseases.Until recently, it was a felony to sell camel milk in the U.S. In April 2009, Dr. Hinkle introduced aproposal to the Food and Drug Administrations (FDA) Committee on Interstate Milk Shipmentsin Orlando, Florida. The proposal was to change the law to allow the "camelids" to be includedin the dairy laws governing the sale of milk. Dr. Hinkle gave an impassioned speech before thecommittee:"How would you feel if your loved one was afflicted with diabetes and was very ill from thedrugs prescribed for the diabetes? (A high amount of individuals react negatively to the diabeticmedication.) How would you feel seeing a loved one lose an arm or a leg and eventually theirlife to diabetes when just a small amount of camel milk could supply all the insulin they mightneed daily? (There are 52 units of insulin per liter of camel milk.)"What a joy it would be to see your autistic child act normally with just a little camel milk on adaily basis. The health benefits for diabetes, autism, cancer, and many more illnesses areendless. Please pass this proposal and allow us to begin the long road to getting camel milkhere and to finally conducting medically supervised studies here in the U.S."The proposal was passed. Dr. Hinkle says that this will now open the door for the testing ofcamel samples so that it can meet the FDA standards and for camel dairies to be set up here inthe U.S.
  4. 4. Alzheimers Study With Camel MilkDr. Hinkle has just completed a six-month study with a small group of Alzheimers patients andcamel milk. Dr. Hinkle worked with nine patients who were all in early stages of Alzheimers andthe results "were very promising," states Dr. Hinkle.Dr. Hinkle used a specific protocol that she developed in combination with the camel milk. "Theresults were evident within a few weeks," states Dr. Hinkle. The following positive results werenoted in all the patients:Sleep patterns improved.Eating habits improved.Patients became more vocal and interacted with others more and were able to participate inconversations as well as remember conversations from previous days.There was less confusion, less repetition, less aggression and less mood swingswithin the first month.Patients were able to complete tasks and remain on target until tasks were completed.Memory recall improved when patients were asked to remember specific dates or events.Physical activity improved."I am very pleased with the results of the study," states Dr. Hinkle. "But we need to see whatthe long-term benefits will be with patients and we also need to work with specialists involvinga long-term study with more patients so that we may track those patients for several years. Weknow from recent research completed that camel milk antibodies are able to cross the brainbarrier and therefore we can piggyback specific supplements and medications, etc., with eachpatient to cross the brain barrier in order to work toward improving the symptoms and tohopefully stop the progression of Alzheimers," says Dr. Hinkle.Lyme Disease Patients Experience Benefits of Camel MilkDr. Hinkle has been working with Lyme disease patients for the last three years and the resultshave been impressive for many of the patients. Patients see joint pain decrease, sleep patterns
  5. 5. improve, gut issues improve, rashes disappear and the ability to think clearly improves as “brainfog” lifts. Lyme patients are on antibiotics, which destroy much of the good gut flora, and thecamel milk helps in keeping it in balance. Camel milk is known for its antiviral, antifungal andantibacterial properties. Dr. Hinkle is studying the effects of the milk on the Lyme spirochetes.She utilizes a specific protocol with the milk to increase the opportunity for more favorableresults. Dr. Hinkle’s approach works to weaken the spirochetes so that more positive results areexperienced by patients as the milk also provides support to the immune system. The resultshave been amazing.Hepatitis Patients See Normal Liver Enzyme Panels on Camel MilkDr. Hinkle has been very pleased with the results she is seeing with hepatitis patients on thecamel milk. She has witnessed case after case of hepatitis patients whose liver enzymes havebeen normal for the first time in years while on the milk. One 80-year-old patient’s test resultswere normal after 40 years of elevated liver enzymes after being on the milk for only twoweeks. “The story is the same over and over and I am looking forward to working with morehepatitis patients and their doctors to hopefully give them a brighter future for their health.”Dr. Hinkle cautions that each case is different and that more studies need to be completed withlarger groups of individuals. She is seeking funding for a long-term study on the effects of thecamel milk in treating hepatitis and expects to see the same positive results she has noted sofar. "The antiviral properties in the milk seem to dissipate the inflammation of the liver and themilk also provides many of the nutrients needed for healthy liver function,” states Dr. Hinkle.
