MEANING: Conservation, Endurance, Stamina

Native American Camel Animal Medicine

Camel Medicine is most famous for their humps and their ability to go long periods of time without water. Contrary to popular belief their humps are for fat storage, not water storage. They metabolize this fat for energy use, which is another reason why their can endure a harsh climate. Their fat provides them stamina and endurance in addition to their ability to conserve water.

Camel Medicine is known for their conservation because they can withstand 20 to 25 percent weight loss due to sweating where other mammals can other withstand 3 to 4 percent dehydration before they experience cardiac failure. Human have round RBCs (red blood cells) and Camel Medicine has oval shape RBCs. This makes Camel Medicine RBCs more stable and thereby able to handle osmotic variation because they will drink 20 to 25 gallons of water in one setting and then conserve it. They can also handle changes in body temperature that would kill other animals.

Camel Medicine is telling you to recognize your limits and conserve where physiologically necessary and reminding you of your own stamina, endurance and energy.
