Hi Vixen W.,RN,

 I am not familar with Nicosan. However in working with bloodless medicine and surgery, I have come across something that so far seems to be under the radar. If you do some research on Nicosan, it would be interesting to see what happens to the glutathione levels after treatment.

 Check out more about glutathione on and especially on the section on blood. Then, if you like, have your librarian do a doc search on cysteine, NAC, bonded whey protein isolate, glutathione, and sickle cell anemia. Have her narrow the search otherwise you will end up with thousads of studies.

My success till now was in consulting with doctors on treatment options with out the use of blood. This only makes it more  interesting as the options have increased expotentially. You see, the treatments already have thousands of studies and 2 of them are in the PDR and RED Book. 

 So, what do you think?
