There are also specific nutrients
that I add to each
that also lower the glucose levels. Therefore with a low carb diet,
exercise, and following the protocol described above with the
incorporation of the camel milk I have seen dramatic changes in glucose
I ordered some
powder camel milk
but have not seen any positive results for my autistic child.
Does it work as well as the fresh milk?
A: I have tested many patients on the powder milk and no patient has
had any positive results. The powder milk has not lowered
levels in my diabetic patients and I have not had even one autistic
child who had any improvement on the powder milk. Once we
them to the fresh milk they all have excellent results. Do not
waste your money on this milk. People selling the milk promise
that it works just as well, but that has not been the case at all in my
My child is
allergic to the camel
milk and breaks out in a rash every time he drinks it. Is
any other milk that might be good for him?
A: Yes, I am working with several other milks and some of them have
shown even better results with patients. The water buffalo
so very high in the good fats, with 50 percent more fat in the milk
than cow milk and 40 percent less cholesterol. For the last 28
years I have recommended water buffalo mozzarella cheese for patients
who could not tolerate cow or goat milk, with excellent
Many of my autistic patients use the cheese and yogurt. I am
working with the water buffalo dairies here in the U.S. to get more
milk production going for the consumer. The taste is
wonderful. It has a sweet taste. I am also testing
on donkey milk and I am seeing great results with this. Donkey
milk is the closest to human milk of any animal being
has 5 times the amount of vitamin C while camel milk has only 3 times
more vitamin C than cow milk. It is extremely high in vitamins
minerals and is an abundant source of proteins as well as calcium and
phosphorus. I am working with donkey farms across the U.S. to
and get them to start milking. I have had great success with
children I have been working with on an international basis with the
Are there other ways that you would recommend to remove heavy metals,
pesticides, and chemicals other than the chelating agents EDTA, DMSA,
A. Yes, but the chelating drugs you mentioned are best and I might add
that I have never had any negative reactions to the chelating drugs in
my office. I have received calls from parents of autistic children
saying that their child got worse on the drugs. This is normal, because
the heavy metals are being pulled from the tissues and put into
circulation to remove them from the body. When this happens the
symptoms may be slightly worse.
In my office I do not have these problems, because I use supplements
and homeopathics to alleviate these problems. Reduced L’glutathione
should be increased for two to three days after chelation and during
the chelation days. In my office I use sodium alginate, but not just
any alginate. There are many alginates on the market, but not all of
them test well with autistic children. I use a specific brand that is
organic as well. Alginate is derived from seaweed. You may call for a
consultation if you have further questions at 919-928-0821.
For many patients I have also had to incorporate apple pectin, and
again let me state that not all apple pectins test well. Each pectin is
different. Some autistic children have elevated levels of cholesterol
and apple pectin works well with many patients, but must be taken under
very strict guidelines. I do not use citrus pectin products, nor any
combination of citrus pectin and alginate, because they do not allergy
test well with my patients. Most autistic children do not tolerate
citrus or citrus pectin well.
Cilantro is not used in my office, because I have worked with doctors
who conducted before and after tests with cilantro and no significant
heavy metals were excreted. Alginate and pectin have been shown to
remove a large percentage of heavy metals over a relatively short
period of time from the body.
I also recommend trying to find a physician who practices Biosyntonics,
which is a practice that medical doctors use in France. I was trained
by doctors from France and this was so impressive. Within a short 30-40
minute biosyntonic session, large amounts of heavy metals were excreted
from the body and in some cases I witnessed over five times the normal
level in just one session. The sessions are noninvasive and are to be
done only once a week, because they are very powerful. The concept is
based on cellular fluidity and the levels in the bones, lymph and
blood, which is where heavy metals and other toxins are present.
Biosyntonic therapy helps to balance the meridians in the body,
eliminate large amounts of toxins, and reset energy
circuits in the brain as well as the body. Ceramic discs are placed on
and around the body and the patient relaxes to music or quiet for
about 30-40 minutes. There are no magnets involved and it is a relaxing
process. Call me for further details. There are very few doctors in the
U.S. at present who are trained to do Biosyntonics.
My child is on a diet that was recommended by his health care
provider, but it is so much trouble. I have to boil a chicken to make
chicken both, using even the bones. And the diet states that honey is
okay, but I thought honey was not good for children. The diet also says
that it is okay to reintroduce milk after a few weeks of being off of
it. Is there a better diet? I am spending all my time
A. Yes, I am aware of the diet you are describing. I have been in
practice for almost 30 years and have worked with many doctors and have
seen many autistic children recover from the symptoms of autism without
There are several things that bother me with this diet. First of all,
bones of any kind, even organic meat bones, can have residue of lead
and arsenic and to boil this and then drink the broth is not something
I would recommend for my patients. I have tested hundreds and hundreds
of patients and have found that the Whole Foods 365 Brand Organic
Chicken Broth tests very well with patients. I feel that parents of
autistic children have so much on their plate already that they do not
need to increase the stressful load with such a restrictive diet.
I do not recommend honey because it is a fact that honey can cause blood
sugar levels to spike in autistic children, and raw honey has been
found to have aflatoxins and mold if not handled properly. Honey has a
very high glycemic factor, and I recommend Grade B maple
syrup instead. I like the Whole Foods 365 Brand Grade B Organic
Maple Syrup. It tests well with all children. Some children (about 70%)
test well on agave, but I personally do not like the smoky taste of the
agave. It is fine if your child is not allergic. Both the maple syrup
and agave have low glycemic factors.
Many children have allergies to milk and staying off milk for just a
few weeks or even a few months will not change that fact. Camel milk
does not have the same casein or protein as is found in goat and cow
milk. Some children are also allergic to camel milk, but if they are
not allergic they can use it daily with great results.
I suggest that a diet free of casein, gluten, soy, caffeine, chocolate,
sugar, and rotating the foods every four days is a better and
less restrictive method. Whole foods that are high in fiber and fatty
acids, as well as nutrient-rich are the best. Try to incorporate as
many different fruits and vegetables as you can into your child’s diet.
Also, try to use only organic, and allow as much raw fruits and
vegetables as your child will tolerate to ensure getting the enzymes
that are needed, and always use only antibiotic-hormone-free meats.
I give my child camel milk before bedtime, but he still does not
sleep well. Any suggestions?
A. Several things may be going on, therefore let me run through the
list that I use with patients in my office.
1.) No snacks after dinner, except camel milk. Food puts stress on the
liver and pancreas and gallbladder. Not having to digest food while
sleeping gives the digestive system a rest. If you or your child
usually wakes up during the middle of the night around 3:00, it is
usually a sign that the liver is stressed.
2.) Absolutely no computer games after 3:00 in the afternoon. Studies
show that being exposed to a computer for extended periods of time can
affect the brain waves and melatonin levels. I have a video of a child
having seizures each time he is placed in front of a computer screen.
Children need to be in a calm state, not a hyper-excited state, for
sleeping. I am very concerned about parents who use computers as a
babysitting aid, especially for autistic children.
3.) No supplements or medications with the evening meal. All
supplements should be divided between breakfast and lunch. Taking
supplements at night puts more stress on the liver and pancreas at the
time the child needs to rest. Our bodies heal during our sleeping
hours. A child’s liver and pancreas and gallbladder need no additional
stress during this time. Some supplements, such as B vitamins, can give
you more energy, and therefore make you less likely to sleep.
4.) Make sure that the room is completely dark. If a nightlight is
required because the child is afraid of the dark, then try using a
sleep mask. Most children love these. They can be found in beauty
supply stores or in stores that sell luggage and travel accessories.
Make sure to wash them several times to remove any scents or chemical
residue. You may also just make your own out of organic cotton.
Children think these are special and soft and start to feel “safe” when
Weighted blankets can also help, but the child may get too warm during
the night and wake up, which defeats the purpose. Rugs can mute outside
noises. Reading before bedtime helps to calm and relax the child. Many
parents find that a “white noise” machine helps. Always make sure that
the head of the bed is facing north. Studies have shown that the pull
of gravity can move heavy metals while sleeping if the head is facing
south. Studies have also shown that cancer rates are higher in people
who sleep with their beds facing south. Do not use any mattresses with
magnets nor place any magnets around the child. Magnets can pull or
move heavy metals into the brain, and I have seen children who were
placed on mattresses with magnets develop seizures and when removed
from the mattresses the seizures disappeared.
5.) Make sure that all electrical gadgets, such as computers, are not
near the child. Make sure that anything electrical is at least six feet
or more from the child’s bed, and no scented fragrances are in the room
or on the sheets. Organic cotton sheets really make a big difference in
the ability to relax. There is pesticide residue in sheets that are not
6.) Do not use any scented soaps or body lotions on your child before
bedtime or at any time for that matter. They overstimulate the nervous
system and can cause reactions that you may be unaware of in your child.
7.) Fluorescent lights and the new energy-efficient light bulbs are not
good for autistic children. The new energy-efficient light bulbs have
mercury in them, and I have had comments from parents who state that
their children’s symptoms were worse after they installed the bulbs,
and when they removed the bulbs, the children’s symptoms lessened.
8.) I also encourage parents to allow their autistic children to wear
tinted sunglasses. Bright light affects autistic children’s sensory
system. Make sure that you leave any new plastic sunglasses out in the
sunlight for several days, so that any smells or chemicals will out-gas
from the glasses.
My child was on camel milk and doing great, but then the dentist
filled a cavity in one of his teeth and he has regressed. The filling
was not amalgam (mercury). I was careful not to allow a mercury filling
in my child’s mouth. Could the filling be causing a problem?
A. Just because a filling is not mercury does not mean that it is
nonreactive to your child. Many composites (white fillings) are as bad
or worse for causing reactions as the mercury.
In my practice I recommend that each patient have a dental
compatibility test done. This is a blood test that will determine the
least-reactive and the most-reactive dental materials for your child.
This is extremely important. Many patients have had the same reaction
as your child and have demanded the fillings be removed and replaced
with one that was more biocompatible and the symptoms disappeared
A medical doctor friend of mine had his fillings done with a new
composite material recommended by his dentist, and he became so ill
that he was bedridden and could not work and lost over 20 pounds in
just two weeks. His wife called to ask for my help. I tested him and
found that the dental fillings were the culprit. I called his dentist
and asked that he remove the fillings and replace them with one that I
recommended. The dentist agreed, and the doctor was immediately
relieved of his symptoms and was back at work the next day.
As someone who has had extensive training in the dental field (I have a
degree in dental hygiene), I feel that I am qualified to speak on the
topic of fluoride treatments as well. I personally had to be detoxed
because I had elevated levels of fluoride in my body due to fluoride
treatments. I would not want my autistic child to have fluoride
treatments. Children should use a safe toothpaste, such as one found in
health food stores. The brush should be soft, and be sure to replace
the brush every 30 days to prevent fungal and bacterial growth.
Soak toothbrushes in hydrogen peroxide overnight to help with any
bacteria buildup, and be sure to rinse the brush thoroughly before
using it again. Always floss the child’s teeth daily to remove food
debris and plaque buildup. All of these preventative measures will help
your child’s teeth.
I read that Amish children do not get autism. Is this true and why?
A. Absolutely not true!!!! I have several Amish children I am
presently treating for autism. There may not be as many Amish children
with autism as the general population because many Amish parents do not
believe in vaccinations and avoid them if they can. Not only do Amish
children have autism, they also have another autoimmune disorder
similar to autism that children outside the Amish communities do not
seem to have. Research is being conducted to determine why Amish
children develop this immune disorder.
I was told that I had to pay a membership fee and sign papers to
join a private club before I could get the camel milk. Is this legal?
A. No, it is not legal according to the FDA and the USDA. The FDA has
stated that it is not legal to charge anyone a fee to sell raw milk and
ship it across state lines. Several dairies across the U.S. have been
shut down and even the members (parents) were taken to court because of
this practice. I suggest that you check with your FDA and USDA
representatives and report this if you are being required to pay a fee
or sign papers to join a private club in order to obtain camel milk.
You may contact Camel Milk USA at 919-928-0821 for a dairy that does
not demand a fee.
Let me again state that the law in the U.S. is that many states are
allowed to sell milk raw within a state, but the milk is required to be
pasteurized if it is shipped across state lines. I personally feel that
anyone who wants milk, whether it be raw or pasteurized, should be able
to buy it as long as they are aware of the possible dangers, and
whether I drink pasteurized or raw milk, I would want to be sure that
it is free of pathogens.
I read about your maple syrup and camel milk study. How much should I
give my child? And my mother is diabetic, how much should she take?
Each individual is different and each illness requires a different
amount. You must mix the maple syrup with specific nutraceuticals into
a paste and then you must wait a specific amount of time before taking
the camel milk. The maple syrup paste must take effect, then be
followed by a protein such as the camel milk, for the results we have
obtained in my office. Just combining the camel milk and maple syrup
will not get the best results. I have used maple syrup in my office for
more than 28 years, and with the milk for the last five years, and the
results are even more impressive with the maple syrup paste.
I read on a blog that you recommended 4 ounces of milk three times a
day. Is this the best starting dosage?
Absolutely NOT!!!! I would never recommend that as a starting
dosage for the milk. Anyone can blog anything, but I can assure you
that I would never recommend that as a starting dosage to anyone. Also
keep in mind that every patient is different and therefore the dosage
is different depending upon the age, weight, supplements and
prescriptions a patient is taking. If you have questions or are not
sure, please call the office and we will try and help, or you may set
up a consultation by calling 919-928-0821.
My mother has early stages of Alzheimer’s. Would the camel milk be good
We have had good results with the Alzheimer’s patients that we have
been able to work with. There are several things I would recommend: the
maple syrup, camel milk and the right fatty acids, such as avocados,
olive oil and walnuts. Try drizzling a little maple syrup over an
avocado for breakfast. I would recommend working with a doctor that is
a member of ACAM. These doctors can test for heavy metals, vitamin and
mineral deficiencies, and amino acid levels. These tests will give you
a lot of answers. Also very important is that the individual be on a
gluten-free and casein-free diet. Many patients are diagnosed with
dementia or Alzheimer’s who have gluten or casein intolerance and most
have elevated heavy metal levels. I have spoken with doctors who have
followed this protocol and Alzheimer’s patients return to a normal life
outside of a care facility. There needs to be more research done on
more advanced stages of Alzheimer’s and dementia with this protocol.
autistic child has elevated
levels of mercury, lead and arsenic. I am worried about using
chelating drugs. Is there anything else I can do?
First, I always recommend chelation if it is done correctly. I
have never seen any negative cases in my practice. I have
parents blogging that their child got worse on chelating drugs, but
when I have questioned some of these parents, it is just the symptoms
of the heavy metals being chelated out of the tissues and circulated in
order to eliminate them from the body. Many times the child is
on the supplements needed to support the detoxification process.
are several new things in combination that are having good results in
the elimination of heavy metals, including the Paleo Diet,
specific supplements, chelation with DMPS, DMSA, or EDTA. But
parents who do not wish to do the traditional chelation drugs, we are
seeing excellent results with heavy metals being excreted in the urine
using specific supplements, then following them with BioSyntonie and
waiting 15 minutes and following with FIRS (Far Infared Sauna)
for only 10 minutes. For the best sources, call my
919-928-0821 for a recommendation. Saunas can be loaded with
glues, etc., and very expensive. We can recommend the one that
use as well as the BioSyntonie.
have seen camel milk for sale at very high prices ($18 per
more) and I cannot afford this for my child. Is there any
with lower prices?
A. I understand that there
are some distributors who buy the milk at a reduced price from the
dairy and then raise the price for sale to the customer to make a
profit. I believe in the right for anyone to have a business
have nothing against anyone who is trying to make a living, but I work
with parents of autistic children and other patients every day who are
struggling financially to make ends meet due to the high cost of
medical care, and I personally do not believe in gouging them
further. I recommend you call my office for a dairy that sells
milk at the usual price of approximately $10 per pint. Would
buy groceries for almost twice the price at one grocery store when you
could get it for much less at another?
child has been on camel milk for 8 months, but in the last few
weeks seems to be getting worse. Could it be the camel milk?
During spring and summer, most autistic children’s symptoms
worsen. Why? Pesticides, insecticides, fungicides,
herbicides being sprayed could be one explanation. Another
possible reason for the symptoms is if any new supplements or
medications have been introduced, or even any home repairs, such as
painting, new carpet, etc. Also, we do see many children that
after being on the milk for a period of time need to reduce their
dosages. I suggest stopping any new supplements that have been
added for 72 hours; if this does not work then also stop the milk for
72 hours. If the symptoms still persist, then check to see if any lawns
have been sprayed in your area or farm crops. No home or lawn
any autistic child should be sprayed or treated with
my office, we have each of my patients on a pesticide and insecticide
remedy for the spring and summer months, which seems to help.
there any clinic or doctor that you recommend for treating autism? I
live in California.
Alan Ketover, M.D., at The Valley Clinic in the Phoenix, Arizona area
has been working with autistic children for more than 20
I had a child on the autism spectrum or a child with diabetes or with
gut problems, Dr. Ketover would be the first person I call.
started my child on a new fatty acid a few days ago and
on camel milk about the same time. His behavior has
much worse. Could it be the camel milk?
I am aware of the specific fatty acid that you are giving your child
and have seen quite a few autistic children’s symptoms worsen on
certain brands of fatty acids. I suggest stopping the
for 72 hours to see if the symptoms lessen. If not, then try
stopping the camel milk. Based on the many cases I have seen,
is probably the fatty acid. The symptoms you describe are what
have seen in other autistic children who have reacted negatively to
this specific supplement. Most autistic children do better on
one fatty acid at a time instead of a combination. Also,
fatty acids should be taken with protein meals for better assimilation.
Q. I have started on the camel milk for diabetes but my blood sugar levels have gone up instead of down. I feel great on the milk but could the milk be a problem?
A. First, make sure that you do not have a casein allergy. If you are allergic to casein then you might be allergic to the casein in camel milk. If you have a lactose allergy then you should be okay on the milk. Do not combine the camel milk with other dairy products such as cow or goat. Some medications and herbal remedies can raise blood sugar levels. Some heart medications list diabetes as a side effect of the medication. Supplements such as chondroitin and glucosamine have been shown to raise blood sugar levels. Finally, have a heavy metal challenge test done to determine if there is a problem with heavy metals. I have seen several patients blood sugar levels go up for a short period of time once they start the milk and then the levels return to normal; I suggest you set up a consultation with my office if you have further concerns.
Q. My autistic child is on a gluten free and casein free diet but when I give him gluten-free products he seems to get worse. Could they be a problem?
A. Of course he gets worse! I have seen this over and over in my practice with autistic children and diabetes who switch to gluten free products when I ask that they remove gluten from their diets. Gluten free products are usually higher in carbs than gluten containing products and this can cause blood sugar levels to spike. There are usually additives in gluten free products to enhance the taste. Gluten free products are not good for diabetics, autistic children or cancer patients. Try a modified Paleo diet and I think that you will see better results. When patients maintain a diet free of packaged and processed foods and eat a diet that is loaded with fresh fruits, vegetables and meats; I see amazing results.
Q. I gave a family member with cancer three 8 ounce glasses per day of the camel milk for 4 days and she developed a rash. The doctor tested her iron levels and they were elevated. Could the camel milk be the problem?
Yes and no. Most cancer patients need elevated dosages of camel milk but it should be started in low dosages and then gradually increased. I think that you introduced too much too quickly and caused a “die off” effect. The rash may be a symptom of that. Second, I test all cancer patients in my office for elevated iron levels and if the levels are high then I do not start the patient of the milk until the levels are lowered. High levels of iron can make certain types of cancer grow. I also do not recommend any sweetener; not even organic maple syrup; for cancer patients because sugar can make cancer cells grow. There is also the possibility that your relative might be allergic to the casein in the milk and this may have caused the rash. Test for casein allergies.
Q. My autistic child has had 2 seizures in the past 3 years. I realize that is not often but I worry that I am overlooking something. Do you think the camel milk would help with his seizures?
A. I have seen many autistic children in my practice stop their seizures once they are on the correct dosage of the camel milk. It usually takes 4-8 weeks but may be longer for some children. Since your child’s seizures are so infrequent I would be interested to see if it was an exposure to a toxin like a pesticide or insecticide. I also check each child that comes into my office to determine if their atlas is misaligned. If that is a problem then I refer them to an atlas orthogonist. Many autistic children have their atlas’ out of alignment. This is a simple procedure to remedy and the results can be amazing. I will warn you that this is not a manual adjustment and a true atlas orthogonist does not use his hands to “adjust” the atlas. make sure you are going to a professionally trained doctor to adjust the atlas properly. You may contact my office if you have any questions. Adjusting an atlas that is misaligned can stop seizures if they are related, improve sleep patterns and help with behavioral and coordination problems. I also recommend weekly sessions witha crainosacral massage therapist. Crainosacral massage is a great therapeutical procedure for calming the child’s nervous system and improving sleep and behavioral patterns.
Q. What is GcMAF and why is it so important?
A. GcMAF is a D-binding protein in humans responsible for a healthy immune system. Viruses, bacteria and cancer cells send out an enzyme called nagalase. This enzyme can prevent production of GcMAF. Low levels of GcMAF can result in the spread of cancer cells and viruses and bacteria can grow. GcMAF replacement therapy can help rebuild a suppressed immune system. Almost all patients with leaky guts have elevated levels of the enzyme nagalase and low levels of GcMAF.
Q. Where can I find GcMAF for my autistic child?
A. Contact Dr. Hinkle for a consultation at 919-928-0821. Dr. Hinkle has developed a special formula and is accepting all patients into her newest study. She is looking for patients with a variety of ailments to determine the overall effectiveness of the GcMAF formula for each illness.
Q. What is GcMAF enhanced camel milk?
A. GcMAF enhanced camel milk is Dr. Hinkle’s formula that she has tested on patients with autism, Lyme disease, and cancer. Specific probiotics are grown in a camel milk culture for 48 hours. Specific vitamins and a lipid are added to the culture, which is then combined with a measured dosage of fresh camel milk. There is a specific ratio of GcMAF milk to fresh milk. The dosage is taken twice daily. The dosage must be specific or the patient may become overactive.
Q. My child has been on the camel milk for 5 days and seems to be doing well, but has developed a runny nose and mucous. Could it be the camel milk?
A. Possibly. It is spring, and there is much pollen in the air. I suggest that you stop the milk to see if the runny nose and mucous disappear. It should take about 3 days (72 hours). I place my patients on homeopathic remedies for seasonal allergies. Patients are given the homeopathic remedy for the region of the country in which they live. For instance, patients in Arizona are given seasonal remedies for the southwestern part of the U.S. If the child improves on the remedy, then you may try the milk again. If the runny nose and mucous return, then your child probably has developed an allergy to the milk. I would also suggest testing your child for a casein allergy.
Q. My 12 year old autistic son has been drinking the camel milk for the past 11 months. He was doing well, but now he is constipated all the time. Could it be something in the milk?
A. Possibly. You may need to ask his physician to check his iron and magnesium levels. Low levels of magnesium can cause some patients to be constipated, and elevated levels of iron can also cause constipation. Check any supplements the child is taking for iron. Camel milk is high in iron, and if the patient is taking a supplement with iron added, it may be too much. Many children reach a plateau on the camel milk, and if they have been on the milk 10 months or more, they may need to have their milk reduced to a lower maintenance dosage. Many autistic children are on prescription drugs for seizures, etc. These drugs can also cause constipation. To determine the correct maintenance dosage, you may call my office for a consultation.
Q. My father was just diagnosed with Alzheimers. He is still active with very few symptoms. Would the camel milk help him?
A. Yes, I am seeing some amazing results with the camel milk and Alzheimer's patients. There are other factors that I also consider when working with these patients. First, they need several tests such as an amino acid panel,a heavy metal challenge test with mineral analysis as well as vitamin levels evaluated and they need to be tested for food allergies. All of my patients are on specific diets and supplements with the camel milk and an exercise program as well.
A recent study completed by a U.S. medical university demonstrated that Alzheimer's patients who performed aerobics exercises were able to actually change their lab results for the better where as those patients who only did basic exercise such as walking, weights, or yoga had no significant change in their test scores. When we are able to combine the camel milk protocol with the exercise we see amazing results.
Q. My wife and I are from Somalia but now live in the U.S. We are trying to start a family but my wife has had 2 miscarriages. Do you think the camel milk would help her?
A. I have actually worked with a physician who was seeing a high rate of miscarriages in his patients from Somalia. He asked for my help with the camel milk. I worked with 5 women who had previously miscarried. I determined the correct dosage of milk for each of these patients and started them on a camel milk protocol and all 5 of the women delivered health full term babies with no complications.
Camel milk is a staple in the diet of many Somalian women. Camel milk is also a complete food with elevated levels of thyroxin which supports thyroid function and thereby other hormones.This could be another reason these women did so well on the milk. I suggest you contact my office for more information.
Q. I had a phone consultation with you last month about my autistic child. I have been so amazed at the progress he has made in just a month that I wish I had contacted you sooner. My concern is that he likes the milk so much that he wants to drink much more than the dosage you recommended. Can he drink too much of the milk? Will he get sick?
A. I am delighted to hear of the progress he has made due to the camel milk dosage I recommended for him. I placed your child on a specific dosage based on his specific health issues and supplements he needed to take and even some he needed to discontinue. If he drinks too high of a dosage he may develop diarrhea or even constipation or he may experience a "die off" effect that can be unpleasant. Therefore it is best to keep him on the specific dosage recommended for him. Each dosage is specific for each child.
Camel milk is a staple in the diet of many Somalian women.

Q. My 9-month-old baby has a case of severe eczema. He was on the camel milk for 1 month and his eczema got 80% better. Three days ago I started him on a probiotic with 50 billion CFU’S. Now he has an ear infection and is crying all the time. What should I do? Should I stop the milk?
A. Stop everything!! You have him on too high of a dosage of probiotics. 50 billion CFU’s is too high for an infant. Wait 3-5 days or until his ear clears up. Then restart only the camel milk again at a low dosage and gradually work up to the maintenance dosage. In my office I use probiotics with 5 billion CFU’s for infants who are also on the camel milk protocol. The camel milk also has probiotics and children can have negative side effects with elevated dosages of probiotics.
Q. Is it O.K. to take supplements with the camel milk?
A. It is best to take the camel milk on an empty stomach. Camel milk acts as a carrying agent and combining it with some supplements can actually help, but combining camel milk with any herbal supplement can affect the effectiveness of both. Call my office for a consultation if you have questions regarding this issue.
Q. I want to try camel milk for my autistic child, but I am not sure where to purchase it? How can I trust that the milk I am purchasing is safe for my child?
A. Great question! Of course you should be concerned! First of all beware of dairies that demand you pay them a fee to join some club to purchase their milk. According to the FDA this is not legal!! I always recommend that my patients purchase any milk from a Grade A dairy. These dairies test their milk daily and are subject to random government onsite inspections. The dairies that are not Grade A do not allow onsite government inspections of their facilities. Therefore, you have no way of knowing if the milk you receive has met the strict guidelines of local, state and federal sanitation procedures. Dairies can blog or advertise anything they wish. There is no way that you will ever know if they are meeting all the rules and regulations regarding proper sanitation procedures unless they are certified Grade A. Grade A dairies are also subjected to random inspections which means that inspections can be done without any notice at any time. That is why you know that all the Grade A dairies meet the strict sanitation methods to be able to retain their Grade A rating. Grade A dairies also sell raw as well as pasteurized milk here in the U.S. Call my office for one near you.
Q. I have been diagnosed with Mast Cell Disorder. Would camel milk be good for me?
A. Mast Cell disorder is an autoimmune disorder. Patients exhibit methylation imbalances with oxidative stress. Diets high in copper make this condition worse. Heavy metals and radiation can contribute to this disorder. Camel milk has elevated levels of zinc which counteracts elevated copper levels. The lactoferrin in the milk lowers oxidative stress markers. Camel milk should help. But I also recommend that you have a heavy metal challenge test to rule out heavy metals. This is a specific test and must be done correctly utilizing a chelating drug to determine heavy metal overload.
Q. My child has PANDAS and has tested positive for IgG FRA. Can he drink the camel milk?
A. There has been no established correlation between the intake of camel milk and inhibited folic acid binding to FR alpha. Folinic acid, not folic acid is recommended. Antibiotics have been shown to block enzymes that convert folic acid to folinic acid. Many PANDAS children have been on antibiotics. Methylfolate would be recommended instead of folic acid for your child. Although, I have seen some children become worse when place on methylfolate. I have also seen many children get much better within a very short period of time on camel milk. Although, if your child has a diagnosed casein allergy, he may not do well on the milk.
