Nicosan Skeptics—I need your story!

I got a question from one of my readers that I couldn’t answer. I used to be a skeptic and require facts, figures and statistics; but I think I’m too much of a Nicosan believer to be able to answer this.

My baby is also on NICOSAN. Can’t dream of taking her off it!!!! My elder sister has an 8-yr old who has been on hydroxyurea for the last 6 years. She has had two major strokes affecting the right side and a minor one affecting the right shoulder. I have tried time and again to get her to allow her daughter take NICOSAN but she’s refused. Unlike me who leans more to herbal she prefers {Westernized} real medicine which comes with statistical information on success rates, what the medicine actually targets in the body etc. Would you by any chance know of anyone who has had a similar experience and moved to NICOSAN with successful results? I really need to get her on this.

So to other users out there…how did you cross the great divide from Westernized ‘real’ medicine to herbal remedies and Nicosan? Drop me an email or share your comments.
