Empirical research shows that autism is not necessarily a genetic or mental disability. It may be simply a biomedical disorder that can be treated and managed.
Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that begins in childhood. If not treated early, it can become a permanent disability.
Autism individuals have difficulties communicating and interacting with others via social media.
They have a different social response to the world, and their perception of it. This causes them to have difficulties in interacting with other people on a daily basis.
The number of people with autism is increasing according to research done in India and the United States (American Psychiatric Association 2013).
One out of three hundred people used to have autism in the past. However, that number has fallen so much that one out sixty people are autistic today.
Research is needed to discover a lasting solution to the rising incidence of autism.
Research has shown that camel milk is one of the best medical options to combat autism.
This research examines the benefits of camelmilk to autistic children (Dumont Mathieu 2005).
The research objectives will be to answer the question “Can camel milk cure autism?”. This is done through extensive literature reviews and a mixture of qualitative and quantitative methods.
Every day of a person’s life is marked by many events.
These events include interpersonal interactions and communication among people.
Good communication and social interaction are essential for a society’s ability to function effectively.
Autism sufferers have difficulty fitting into the daily routine of their lives because they can’t keep up with the demands of everyday life.
Autism can affect individual behavior and interests.
Autism sufferers perceive, hear and feel different things than normal people.
Medical researchers are constantly searching for ways to combat autism because of its difficulties.
Kira (2014) states that most medical experts have concluded that there is no cure for autism.
However, the author states that recent advances in medicine and technology have allowed for widespread research which has led to some surprising medical solutions.
This article describes a study that was conducted among European children who had autistic behavior (Myers 2007).
The children were fed camel milk daily and then subjected to an autism evaluation checklist to determine if there had been any changes in their behavior or interaction with the environment.
Study concluded that camel milk was associated with a significant reduction in autism-related characteristics.
The National Centre for Special Children’s 2016 annual report shows that the number of autistic children continues to rise.
This figure is much higher than the one that was available in the last few decades. It indicates that controlling autism in the future will be difficult for medical professionals (Peacock 2009).
However, the report does mention possible solutions that have been identified in relation to this matter and are still awaiting implementation.
According to the report, research on autism children has shown that camel milk contains a variety of antibiotics which can help improve immunity.
Study that specifically focused on autism children showed that those who ate camel milk for a long time had remarkable improvements in their immune systems. They also experienced significant changes in communication and social interaction with their surroundings (Persico 2013).
Research on the medicinal benefits of camel milk has been reviewed in literature.
This research result is incomprehensible, but it does not indicate that camel milk can cure any specific medical condition.
Volkmar (2009) states that autism should not be considered a disease or condition outside of the world. Instead, it should be seen as a medical problem which can be managed and controlled while long-term solutions are developed.
Numerous studies on this topic have shown the hope for a solution to autism as a medical or health issue.
These studies show a direct link between camel milk’s ability to treat or manage autism.
Justification For The Study
The key research has shown that more advanced approaches are needed to solve the problem.
Although camel milk has been shown to have many health benefits, no scientific evidence is available.
To improve research in this area, camel milk should be subject to various medical examinations and analyses to determine the components that may be beneficial to autistic individuals (Persico 2006).
These components could then be added to other medicines and drugs.
Another gap revealed by the research was the fact that prior studies were done while children received other forms of medical treatment.
It would therefore be incorrect to attribute all improvements in conditions to camel milk intake.
Therefore, it is essential that the research be done so that the subjects are not registered for any other medication during the examination (Wong 2004).
It would be possible to draw a direct correlation between intake of camel milk, and autism.
The previous research on this topic was limited to specific areas, especially those with sufficient supply of camelmilk.
The findings will not be of benefit to areas with low supply, especially those that have low infrastructure and development (Zachor 2006).
Therefore, the research process must be improved and adjusted to ensure that findings are not just beneficial for a particular community but also the entire world.
This could be done by identifying the medicinal components in camel milk and using them to make drugs that can be easily distributed to the rest (Waltz 2013, 2013).
To determine the exact relationship between camel milk, and autism.
In order to determine if there are any behavioral changes in autistic children in response to daily intakes of camel milk, we will use them as subjects.
To identify medicinal properties of camel milk.
Both qualitative and quantitative methods will be used in the study.
An extensive review of the relevant literature regarding autism and the health benefits of camel milk will be done.
A total of 20 sources will be analyzed to determine the depth of coverage. From these, various concepts can be drawn.
To determine consistency, validity, and relevance of the data, the concepts will be analysed (Schmitz 2008).
The research process will also include medical examinations and surveys to gather data related to the research question.
A sample of 50 children with severe autism will be used in the research process.
The samples shall be divided according to the gender and ages of the subjects.
This will allow us to determine if gender has any effect on the results of our research.
Each child will receive 500ml of camelmilk daily.
A concurrent evaluation will be done during this time.
An autism evaluation checklist that includes approximately 80 items measuring communication, social, and behavioral skills shall be used to evaluate the child.
The evaluation shall be done against a total score of 100 (Stefanatos 2008).
Over a 5-month period, any indications of improvement in the skills to be tested shall also be recorded.
These results will be used to create a trend graph, where variables are the number of days and percentage improvement in skills tested.
The parents of the children will be interviewed and asked questions to support this data.
These tools will allow parents to respond to questions and answer questionnaires about the children’s behavior changes over the course of the study.
Both cases will be analysed to determine if there is a link between autistic behavior and camel milk intake.
During the research process, there are no expected ethical concerns.
The questionnaires should not contain names or addresses to protect the privacy and confidentiality of the subjects.
The research process will be the only use of the respondents’ responses.
The increasing incidence of autism around the world is a wakeup call for the medical community.
This problem needs to be addressed long-term.
Camel milk’s potential benefits could be a good idea. This could lead to more research to find tacit counter methods for autism.
