Modern scientific research is still discovering for us many of the wonders of the camel
With regard to the health benefits of drinking the milk and urine of camels, they are many, and they are well known to the earlier generations of medical science and they have been proven by modern scientific research.
Camel’s urine has numerous uses which are beneficial for man. This is indicated by the Prophetic texts and confirmed by modern science … Scientific experiments have proven that camel’s urine has a lethal effect on the germs that cause many diseases.
Camel’s urine is efficacious in the treatment of skin diseases such as ringworm, tinea and abscesses, sores that may appear on the body and hair, and dry and wet ulcers. Camel’s urine brings the secondary benefits of making the hair lustrous and thick, and removing dandruff from the scalp.
Among the uses of camel’s urine, many women use it to wash their hair, to make it longer, and to make it lighter and more lustrous. Camel’s urine is also efficacious in the treatment of swelling of the liver and other diseases such as abscesses, sores that appear on the body and toothache, and for washing eyes.
Laboratory tests indicate that camel’s urine contains high levels of potassium, albuminous proteins, and small amounts of uric acid, sodium and creatine.
Camel’s urine acts as a slow-acting diuretic, but it does not deplete potassium and other salts as other diuretics do, because camel’s urine contains a high level of potassium and proteins. It has also been proven to be effective against some types of bacteria and viruses.
Its success has been proven in treating those who are affected by dropsy and swelling in the liver diseases.
Camel’s urine contains a number of healing factors such as antibiotics (bacteria that are present in it, salts and urea). The camel possesses an immune system that is highly equipped to combat funguses, bacteria and viruses, because it contains antibodies. It may also be used to treat blood clots and fibrinolytics may be derived from it, and it may be used to treat dropsy (which is caused by a deficiency in albumen and potassium, as camel’s urine is rich in both). Camel’s urine may also provide a remedy for abdominal complaints, especially those of the stomach and intestines, as well as asthma and shortness of breath. It caused a noticeable reduction in patients’ sugar levels.
It is a remedy for low libido, and it aids in bone growth in children and in strengthening the heart muscles. It may be used as a cleansing agent for cleaning wounds and sores, especially the urine of young she-camels. It also helps the hair to grow and become strong and thick, and it helps to prevent hair loss and baldness, and can be used to treat dandruff. Camel’s urine may also be used to combat disease by using bacteria extracted from it.
It was used to treat a girl who was suffering from an infection behind the ear, that was accompanied by pus weeping from it and painful cracks and sores. It was also used to treat a girl who was unable to extend the fingers of her hands because of the presence of so many cracks and sores, and whose face was almost black with pimples.
Camel’s urine may also be used to treat the digestive system and to treat some cases of cancer.
Allaah calls upon us to ponder the creation of the camel, as He says (interpretation of the meaning): “Do they not look at the camels, how they are created?” [al-Ghaashiyah 88:17]
The saheeh hadeeth about drinking camel’s urine:
The hadeeth referred to by the questioner is a saheeh hadeeth, in which it says that some people came to Madeenah and fell sick. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told them to drink the milk and urine of camels, and they recovered and grew fat. In the story it also says that they apostatized and killed the camel-herder, then the Muslims caught them and executed them. Narrated by al-Bukhaari (2855) and Muslim (1671).
Market Research process
The identification of a problem is often more essential than its solution, and to solve a problem we need to identify it well.
Assessing the target market acceptance to camel urine as an alternative treatment to many diseases .
|Decision Problems||Possible Research Problems|
|Discovery – Oriented|
|Why is the concept of drinking the camel urine as an alternative disease treatment not acceptable?
|-Investigate target consumers lifestyle.
-Measure the target market satisfaction to other Medical treatments.
|What is required to accept the camel urine as a disease treatment by the target customers?
|-Determine target consumers awareness
-Compare the health benefits for drinking camel urine with other medical products.
-Determine consumers problems with other Medications.
|Strategy – Oriented|
|How to increase acceptance to alternative treatments as camel urine?
|-Determine the numerous uses of camel urine that are beneficial for target customers.
-Measure the success results for patients that were treated by camel urine.
-Run test market to determine the target consumers preferences for different types of treatment.
-Determine if a reasonable percentage are satisfied with such alternative type of diseases treatment.
|How to introduce the camel urine as an alternative treatment.|
Research problem: The awareness towards the health benefits of camel urine.
- Then comes the step of Research Request Agreement that prepared by the researcher after meeting with the decision maker where it summarizes the problem and the information that is needed to address it.
- The Research proposal should cover the following three main issues:
- Area of research : Alternative treatment
- specific research topic within that area : Camel Urine.
You should provide a brief definition of your specific research interest in relation to the problems and issues defined in 1 above and by making reference to any prominent research findings or literature.
- research method(s). it will go for Exploratory method and Descriptive method as the therapy with urine is known from old ages and is inherited through generations.
