Camel’s milk is newer knowledge to the general public. I did not use it with my son because it wasn’t around then, or I didn’t know about it yet. I listened to a lecture when I was recently at the Autism One conference from Barry Smeltzer, who specializes in this field.
Camels’ milk can be used anytime, but carefully. It is used like medicine, as in only a few drops or teaspoons to begin with. It is not to be used as a bovine milk substitute. I believe this is due to the probiotic strains that cause similar changes and increasing the benefits are similar to increasing any good bacteria and giving quality probiotics. Too much will cause die off reactions.
Camel’s milk does not have the same beta-casein structure as bovine milk, so it does not cause the same reactions as casein. This means it should be tolerated by most who are sensitive to casein, (the protein in cow’s milk). As with anything new, always muscle test first to be sure your child’s body is accepting of it and to know what dosage to begin with.

Some of the benefits of Camel’s milk he noted are:
It contains good fats
It contains probiotics that inhibit pathogenic bacteria and increase immunoglobulin
It heals the mucosal matrix
It prevents adhesions (as in leaky gut adhesions)
It has 3 times the amount of vitamin C than dairy
It has more minerals than bovine milk and higher protein
It has two times more antibodies than breast milk with smaller molecules to help cross the gut/brain barrier
Symptom changes noted from Camel’s milk:
can reverse allergies for people with cow’s milk allergies
increased words and speech
reduces acid reflux
It is very hard to get quality Camels milk now. They only have a small herd to supply a large demand. They are working on increasing this, but it will take time. If you do purchase some be sure it is grass fed, was low heat pasteurized (not high heat which kills the probiotics and many of the benefits), know that fresh raw is best, and it should not be a powdered source because the water used to make the powder form is often not pure, has toxins, and may be sprayed with chemicals.
