Hello I’m the son of a Cancer patient. I’ve 2 boxes of Inj Iscador available for cancer treatment which I could not use for my father. Iscador is a recognized therapy for Cancer treatment to balance the side effects of Chemo and other standard treatment options. Researched and manufactured in Europe, the Injections are normally prescribed by most Cancer specialist Homeopaths and a few Oncologists. These injections have to be taken regularly over a period of 2-3 months for the desired effects. But one can consult a fellow Homeopath for the exact medications. In India, these inj have to be imported from Waleda and are available only at a few select places. The available medications are 2 boxes each of Iscador Q Series 0 and 1 @ Rs. 4500/- per box. Please read : http://www.iscador.com for more details. Also consult Dr. Kasad [Mumbai] or Dr. Navneet Rastogi (Delhi) for more info. Mail me : sniphadkar@gmail.com for more details
