Autism or Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), a disease that delays development in the first three years of a child’s life, is characterised by problems related to social skills, repetitive behaviour, speech and non-verbal communication, as well as exceptional strengths and differences. It is estimated that almost 1 in 100 people suffer from this disease. ​

Persons with diagnosed autism are highly likely to be associated with food intolerance. Sensitization to a given food activates the human immune system, causing rash, hives, inflammation, headaches, eczema and others. It is therefore obvious that people with autism often have a weakened and excessively sensitive immune system. As a result of the frequent allergy to milk in children with autism, camel milk can be a natural solution! ​

Research results show that camel milk is rich in enzymes, antibodies and vitamins that benefit children with autism. Parents report better sleep, increased motor skills, better spatial orientation, more visual contact, better expressive language skills, improved skin problems and less gastrointestinal problems. ​

A study by the Baba Farid Center for Special Children (BFCSC) together with the National Research Center on Camel (NRCC) revealed that autism is a biomedical disorder and that camel milk is beneficial for autistic babies!​

Furthermore, camel milk contains nano-antibodies, which are powerful immune cells found only in camels. These immune organisms can penetrate into human cells because of their very small size and can defeat antigens previously unrecognized by the body. ​

Harmful properties of milk, such as beta-casein and beta-lactoglobulin, can be an important contribution to symptomatology. When these two properties are broken up, they form a casomorphin, which can cause the symptoms typical of autism. Camel milk does not contain beta-casein or beta-lactoglobulin. Due to the effects of balancing immunity, some people think it can even improve allergic reactions to products such as cow’s milk!​
