Essiac is a herbal tea mixture that has been used for anticancer treatments over the last 100 years . Essiac was has been used to treat other conditions including diabetes, AIDS, and gastrointestinal diseases.

Essiac Tea is said to put cancer into remission , I have added the recipe below, if you prefer you can also buy essiac tea readymade versions online. I personally like om harmonics essiac tea,

Essiac tea mixture originally was used by the Canadian Ojibwa tribe, the “tea of life” was used by Nurse Caisse and given to her patients in the 1920s. Patients who were told there was no hope by their doctors or unable to pay for treatments were able to beat their cancer using the tea.

In 1934, nurse Caisse opened a cancer clinic in Ontario and gave Essiac tea to her patients free of charge. Nurse Caisse closed the clinic in 1942 , then continued to give Essiac tea to her patients until the late 1970s.

Side effects

Sheep sorrel — this antioxidant-rich herb may assist with targeting cancer cells and lowering risk of cancer development of cancers.

Burdock root — Animal studies showed that burdock root has apoptotic effects on cancerous cells and that the compound called benzaldehyde found in the root helped tumor prevention in animals.

Who Should NOT Use Essiac:

  • People receiving chemotherapy should use Essiac with caution. Always check with an experienced naturopath or herbalist to keep an eye on interactions and detoxification during or after chemotherapy.
  • Pregnant and nursing women should use great care with Essiac tea. Herbs in the tea can cause uterine contractions that could cause preterm labor or miscarriage. While nursing, the herbs will cause toxins to be released into the blood stream that passes into the mother’s milk and into baby.
  • People with kidney and liver problems should consult their doctor before using Essiac.
