Benefits Of Essiac Tea
Essiac Tea has been very helpful alleviating my skin and sinus problems. It has even helped improve my asthma and has kept me healthy over a nearly 20 year period. I very rarely suffer from colds or or the flu and my blood sugar levels have always been normal. While it is impossible to say that my good health is due entirely to taking Essiac, I do not doubt that it has helped. On the rare occasions I do get get a cold, I seem to heal faster and my symptoms don't seem as intense as they were when I got colds before taking the tea.
My energy levels also improved when I started taking the tea. I did not get tired as fast or as easily, I felt more alert and awake and was able to work out at the gym for longer periods of the time.
Below is a list of herbs found in the traditional Essiac Tea formula as well as a short description of the benefits of each herb. I hope this information will be helpful in determining whether you might want to try Essiac Tea.

Who Was Rene Caisse?
Rene Caisse was the Canadian nurse credited with discovering or re-discovering the Essiac formula in the 1920s. It was then that Caisse herself had been diagnosed with breast cancer. After having been given the four-herb formula by an elderly Native American man, Caisse prepared the tea according to the man's instructions. After taking the tea everyday, the pain and swelling in Caisse's breast went away and the breast cancer never re-occurred.
In her capacity as a nurse, Rene Caisse had to challenge the traditional medical establishment in order to help her sickest patients with the tea the Native American man had shown her. She opened a clinic in Ontario, Canada where she helped thousands of cancer patients. Caisse even helped cure her own mother of cancer when she was diagnosed with the disease at age 72 and given only days to live. 18 years later, Caisse's mother died at age 90 of natural causes.

Essiac Tea Ingredients
The ingredients in Essiac Tea are what make it so powerful. The original formula contains only four herbs. It is that formula that I have always taken and that formula that I recommend. Here is a list of the four Essiac herbs and their powerful benefits.
- Burdock Root: Burdock root has long been known for its many healing properties. This herb contains many anti-oxidants, such as quercetin, luteolin, and phenolic acids. If you drink alcohol or smoke, live a stressful lifestyle or do not always eat good foods, these and other anti-oxidants contained in burdock root can help eliminate these harmful substances from your body. Burdock root has also been noted for its cancer-inhibiting properties, which is one of the most common reason why many people have take Essiac tea. Burdock root may inhibit tumor growth and slow the progression of certain types of breast cancer.
- Slippery Elm Bark: Like burdock root, slippery elm bark is another herb that has long been known for its healing qualities. It is said that Native Americans would peel off the bark and use it to treat many common ailments, such as..."sore throats, fevers and wounds". The inside of the bark, is literally slippery and soothing and can be applied topically or taken internally. Because of this, slippery elm bark has often been ingested to help soothe all kinds of stomach ailments. For example, it is reported that slippery elm helps regulate bowel movements. The same slippery, soothing quality that is said to help the stomach, may also help the throat. Slippery elm bark can be used to help sore throats, soothe coughs and help alleviate breathing problems.
- Sheep Sorrel: Sheep sorrel is the third ingredient in in Rene Caisse's four herb tea. A member of the buckwheat family, this herb contains vitamins such as vitamin E, vitamin C and beta carotene. Although the FDA disagrees, it is this herb that Caisse believed was the most important active ingredient in her tea. She thought that sheep sorrel killed the most cancer cells. One of the most remarkable benefits I have experienced from Essiac is the dramatic improvement of my sinus condition. In addition to slippery elm bark being effective in soothing and coating mucous membranes, sheep sorrel is said to help slow the production of mucous in the body. So, the improvement I experienced may have been the result of these two herbs.
- Indian Rhubarb: Indian rhubarb is an herb that is known to help constipation and stomach problems. In the right quantities, it can be used as a laxative, and to promote the good health of the liver and gall bladder.Indian rhubarb has also been know to promote healthy cholesterol levels and be effective in soothing certain skin conditions, such as burns and sores. This powerful herb also helps carry oxygen to all parts of the body, helping the body use its own natural healing powers.
As you can see, each of these herbs alone posses incredible healing properties. Each can help clean harmful substances out of the blood. When brewed together in a tea, and when the healing properties are released through the brewing process, the result is the life-giving elixir known as Essiac.
