Essiac Tea and the Cure for Cancer

Cancer used to be a very rare thing. Some like to claim that it was rare because people died from so many other illnesses before they could develop cancer. If that is the answer, then why has the rate of occurrence of childhood cancer increased as dramatically or even more dramatically than adult cancers?

The question that really bothers me is that there have been cancer cures in existence as far back as the Biblical days. These cures come from many places and many cultures. Many are found because there are certain groups of people who have significantly lower rates of cancer than others. On the other end of the spectrum is the people of the United States who have the highest rates of cancer of anywhere in the world. The exception may be the area around the Chernobyl nuclear reactor. The question is, why are the medical professionals in the U.S. not trying these treatments and cures?

A example of this is a cure that was introduced by a nurse, Rene Caisse, who learned about the herbal treatment from a prospector's wife who had survived breast cancer. The recipe originally came from Ojibway Indians, Native Americans of the area and was based on 4 main herbs. These herbs were burdock root, sheep sorrel, slippery elm bark, and Indian rhubarb root ( some sources say Turkish Rhubarb root ), all of which grow wild in North America. Other recipes add ingredients such as kelp.

When she found out about the healing properties of these herbs, Caisse started treating people, using the recipe, for free. She never charged for her work. Once word spread, she was allowed to set up a clinic in Ontario and with the assistance of doctors, continued to treat patients, producing many testimonials. She did not have any clinical trials and there has not been any serious clinical trials to date. The reason for this is that Essiac Tea, no matter how powerful or effective, is not profitable to the cancer industry. In laboratory tests, Sheep Sorrel and Burdock Root have been shown to kill cancer cells.

While I am not fighting cancer, I have used Essiac as a herbal immune supporter, on and off, for many years. I would consider Essiac Tea as a good choice for stage 1,2, or 3 cancers but it is not likely strong enough for a stage 4 treatment on its own. I certainly would not hesitate adding it to whatever stage 4 protocol that I was following. I certainly think that it would be beneficial to those who are recovering from chemo-therapy or radiation treatments. Essiac Tea works slowly to help remove some of the actual causes of cancer so do not expect an overnight miracle or dramatic tumor shrinkage in short time.

Even if it does not cure cancer, Essiac Tea is beneficial because it contains many nutrients and helps to support your immune system without major side effects. So just buy Essiac Tea for its health benefits and for your happiness.

The place where I buy my Essiac Tea has been suppressed by the FTC and no longer sells Essiac as a cure but if you call them, you can get it as a herbal supplement. Their web site is and you can either e-mail or call to ask about pricing. They provide a good quality product at a good price.

My site:

This formula is a transcription of Mary McPherson's affidavit:

6 ½ cups of burdock root (cut)*

1 pound of sheep sorrel herb   powdered

1/4 pound of slippery elm bark   powdered

1 ounce of Turkish rhubarb root    powdered

Mix these ingredients thoroughly and store in glass jar in dark dry cupboard.

Take a measuring cup, use 1 ounce of herb mixture to 32 ounces of water depending on the amount you want to make.

I use 1 cup of mixture to 8 x 32 = 256 ounces of water.  Boil hard for 10 minutes (covered) then turn off heat but leave sitting on warm plate over night (covered).

In the morning heat steaming hot and let settle a few minutes, then strain through fine strainer into hot sterilized bottles and sit to cool.  Store in dark cool cupboard.  Must be refrigerated when opened.  When near the last when its thick pour in a large jar and sit in frig overnight then pour off all you [can] without sediment.
