For Sickle cell Anemia. Take Raspberry juice every day, fresh.
Eat Burdock capsules, one daily for 30 days.
Not Niger Seeds, but Moringa Seeds are very effective in curing this disease. You may give it a try.

Madhu. Why do you want to take Niger Seeds ?
You need to be very cautious. Or should not take it if you have completed 3 trimesters of pregnancy. Over use of Niger seeds can cause bleeding disorders by slowing blood clotting process and this may increase the risk of bleeding. So, it might not be safe to be used during Pregnancy. AVOID it.
