I have been working with the different aspects of the camel since last 2 decades. One of the most important aspects of the camel to me is the precious milk, which I call as “natural pharmacy“. It gives me immense pleasure when I see any development and scientific findings or a review of the published work regarding the camel, especially the milk. Here in this article, I shall be sharing a review work, published in the journal of Taibah University Medical Sciences. In this article, the scientific published material regarding the therapeutic properties of camel milk and urine are reviewed and discussed in a very good manner. The therapeutic properties of the camel milk have been admired and well accepted for different complex ailments. Though, personally, I have never been convinced of using camel urine (raw) for the treatment of a certain diseases. Moreover, any constituent can be traced out and may be used for the treatment of the ailments if proved scientifically.
The Science’s Interest in the Camel
Beginning in the early 1980s, more orthodox publications began identifying specific diseases and medical conditions that have been treated by camel milk or urine, including cancer, chronic hepatitis, hepatitis C infection and peptic ulcers. Even more recently, it has been reported that camel milk has cured severe food allergies in children who were unresponsive to conventional treatments and diabetes mellitus. Furthermore, camel milk is endowed with anti-malignant, antiplatelet and anti-thrombotic properties in addition to a host of anti-bacterial and viral properties suggesting, among other things, the existence of a very strong immune system, which was recently shown to be equipped with unique light-chain-only antibodies.
These claimed therapeutic actions have recently been the subject of numerous studies, and there is now mounting scientific information detailing the constituents of camel milk and urine as well as their therapeutic components. These revelations lend scientific evidence to support the current practice of using these camel products for their therapeutic benefits. The following review summarizes the current knowledge in these areas.
The camel milk is a real hero for the health goodness and I’m the living story of the camel milk consumption and wellness. I was used to be very sick with rheumatoid Arthritis, unable to walk and move properly. I started living with the camel pastoralists, consuming camel milk daily for a period of 3 months. I recovered in the camels’ county and enabled to climb the mountains. https://camel4all.blog/2015/06/16/my-camel-story-and-world-camel-day-22-june/.
