Camel's milk

popcorn,

My son tested negative on Quadros test. I would like to try Camels millk. Can you pm me the information where to purchase? Also have you cooked with it? Can you cook with it? My son doesn't drink milk but I cook with rice milk in several of his recipes.

 

Thank you for the info... it looks very promising.

 

 

I haven't formally introduced myself. I've been quite the lurker and have gotten so much information from you folks here. I am so grateful. I don't often chime in because most here seem to know so much, and I feel I don't have much to add to the wealth of knowledge here.

 

I'm a mom to three boys (6, 8, 11) with PANDAs--all at varying levels of severity. My oldest has had it probably since toddlerhood, but it went undiagnosed for 8 years. We don't know what his baseline is. Before the PANDAs dx, he was dx'ed with aspergers, ADD, dyspraxia, disorder of written expression, sensory issues.....you name it. Under PANDAs treatment we're seeing the layers peel away. It's a miracle to see him coming back to us. My middle son went undiagnosed for 3 years, and in my youngest, we probably would not have caught on if he'd been an only child.

 

All members of our family have had T&A now (we did one surgery a month Jan - April, myself included--hubby already had his out as a child, so he got off lucky!), we're all on prophylactic antibiotics, are on the GFCF diet to keep down inflammation, and are taking lots of supplements to deal with methylation issues and address gut health.

 

Anyway, for 2 of my boys, this has been enough to keep them at 90%. DS8 had a really bad summer, though--lots of phobias, anxiety, OCD, a couple of 2 hour crying/exorcist jags...all this while on antibiotics. We did biofilm treatment for us all, and that seemed to help a bit. We started biocidin and botanifuge, uncovered MARCONs and dealt with that, but he still wasn't himself. Then our doctor brought up IVIG, which is what kicked us into high, high gear. I started researching chelation and purchased a rife machine and an EMF shield for our home. Please, Lord, let him get better without an IVIG!!!

 

About six months ago, I had bought some powdered camel's milk on amazon/ebay (I can't remember). I tried it and wasn't crazy about the taste (the instructions were in Dutch and I probably didn't get the proportions right). I figured I wouldn't be able to get my kids to drink it--they're very picky, so I didn't push it. Then a couple of weeks ago I was on a facebook group discussing Andy Cutler chelation, and some moms really encouraged me to try camels milk (along with chelation, which we are starting this weekend!). I ordered it frozen from a farm in Michigan. My kids absolutely LOVE it! We're not rich, so we split one pint between the three of them per day. My kids have been on it for almost 2 weeks now, and I cannot tell you the difference.

 

DS8 doesn't need someone in the room with him to fall asleep anymore! His anxiety is gone. He can go upstairs on his own to look for something if he needs to. He will go in the garage to look for stuff (never used to do that b/c of his fear of spiders). He's happy at school. Homework used to be such a huge source of stress for him, yesterday he did it in a few minutes (on his own with the door closed!)--this kid doesn't even close the shower door, that's how much he hates/hated closed doors. He used to have such a short fuse, and now he's the most laid back, easygoing guy around.

 

DS11 is a changed boy. At recess, he used to wander the perimeter of the playground with his hood on. Yesterday I went to school and he was playing soccer with other kids and high-fiving them. When the bell rang, it took him awhile to get in line because he was so busy talking to someone.(!!!)

 

DS6 is holding strong too. It's harder to gauge him, b/c he's been making the transition from this sweet nurturing preschool to all day kdg. with lots of kids and big adjustments, and with him we're dealing with some yeast, so when we get that under control I'm excited to see what unfolds.

 

I'm kicking myself for not trying it sooner--if I'd had my kids on CM, we could have had a fantastic summer. Oh well. If anyone has been on the fence about trying CM, maybe this will encourage you. It's kind of expensive (around $10/pint), which is what held me back. But it's all in the way you frame it. If buying your kid a Jamba juice every day would keep their PANDAs symptoms at bay, would you do it? At 1/3 of a pint per day, CM is actually cheaper.

 

Hugs to you all! Thanks for reading. :)

We have been on it for two weeks now. What I have experienced is that our morning routine is much smoother. No more morning meltdowns over going to school or taking medicine. She has been very cooperative in the mornings. Evenings have been about the same. When my daughter is tired she doesn't do as well. More moody and irritable with potential to meltdown over small things. I'm giving credit to the CM, but I guess you never know for sure. One other thing to mention is that she has started have frequent tics again. She hasn't had tics in a while. Its a sniffing / blowing tic and it is very frequent. Again, it's hard to know if this is related in any way to the CM or if it would have happened anyway. It started about a week ago. I think we will stick with it and see where things go. We are supposed to be increasing her antibiotics for Lyme treatment soon and I don't like changing too many things at once. Not sure if I should do that right after starting the CM or if I should wait a little longer. Pondering that one....

DS has been drinking 8 ounces of camel's milk per week - a very small amount - mixed in milkshakes. His most recent labs show a 55 point increase in overall IgG - no idea if there is causation here or simply correlation. We are going to order again and bump up to 4 ounces per day and see what the next labs show.

Forgot to mention, this is the 1st time in 2 yrs that white blood count has been in the normal range.

I'm interested in hearing any results from this that you all may have had. Anyone who has started camels milk care to share what results they've seen with it?

I tried it with my son for 2 weeks but it really bothered his stomach which was still not great from last flair. He had a difficult time digesting it so supplemented heavily with digestive aids. Then, he started getting diahrea so stopped (not sure if it as the camel milk that did it). I tried 1 tsp. (and cannot drink cows milk) and my stomach had a fit!

 

On the flip side, I have heard from another mom that it has worked wonders for her sons. So probably worth a try for the low cost. Our dr. also said to try it.
