Parimal, if you want to take Drumsticks, you may take it in the form of powder, or tea. I do not think it is available in the injection form. Why don't you directly order it from the vendors over the internet. For tumor the best herbs are--- Cleavers and Shiitake. Buy Cleavers from any herbal store. It is known as Gallium Aparine in homeopathy. Take 5 drops of this mother tincture in a glass of water. And Shiitake capsules can be taken directly. One capsule, per day for a month.
