Abstract

Background: Food allergies in children are often very serious and can lead to anaphylactic reactions. Observations that camel milk ameliorates allergic reactions were noted over the years. The effect of the camel milk is probably related to its special composition.


Objectives: To investigate the effect of camel milk in several children with severe food (mainly milk) allergies.


Methods: We studied eight children with food allergies who did not benefit from conventional treatment. Their parents, or their physicians, decided to try camel milk as a last resort. The parents were advised by the authors – who have considerable experience with the use of camel milk – regarding how much and when the children should drink the milk. The parents reported daily on the progress of their children.


Results: All eight children in this study reacted well to the milk and recovered fully from their allergies.


Conclusions: These encouraging results should be validated by large-scale clinical trials.
