Essiac tea is a mixture of roots, bark and leaves sold worldwide as a health tonic. While it has been most notably been used as an anticancer treatment, it’s also used to treat other serious health problems like gastrointestinal diseases, diabetes and even AIDS. (1) The original Essiac mixture is made up of four ingredients: burdock root, sheep sorrel, slippery elm and Indian (or Turkey) rhubarb root. A similar product known as Flor Essence has the same Essiac ingredients plus four additional ones: watercress, blessed thistle, red clover and kelp.

Typical Aggressive Treatment Dose: Brew a 2-week Supply(Using the most typical dose of 3 oz. taken three times per day) 1. Bring 132 oz. (1 gallon plus 4 oz. to account for evaporation) of spring water or distilled water to a boil and reduce to a simmer. 2. Add 4 oz. of the essiac herbs blend. Typical Maintenance Treatment Dose: Brew a 16 day Supply(Most commonly the dose is 4oz. taken once per day) 1. Boil 68 oz. of spring water or distilled water in a large pot. 2. Add 2 oz. of the essiac herbs blend Here are the rest of the brewing instructions(in any size batch): 3. Turn the heat down to medium and let the tea simmer for ten minutes, stirring occasionally. Keep a cover on the pan with just a bit of air exposed to reduce evaporation. 4. Turn the heat off, cover the pan completely, and leave the mixture sitting at room temperature for twelve hours. 5. The following day, stir the tea vigorously to disperse the remnants of the herbs throughout the mixture* and funnel it into a clean standard plastic spring water gallon container (or a glass bottle, if you prefer). Refrigerate. *We STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you leave the herb particles in the tea and DO NOT strain the herbs. Because these are powdered herbs, you don't have to strain anything--the herbs are fine enough to be taken as you drink the tea. The herbs increase the efficacy level of the treatment. Do not try to brew essiac tea much more than two weeks ahead: it will stay good for about 16 days, but after that you should make a fresh batch of tea. (Two quarts will last 16 days for an individual on the maintenance dose) Shake the container well before pouring your dosages to disperse the herb particles throughout the tea. If you find it difficult to drink essiac straight, you may mix your essiac tea with vegetable juice or add some stevia to it, no sugar because sugar feeds cancer. Most people consume essiac tea cold. The most consistent results over the years come when the doses are taken on an empty stomach. This means to avoid eating two hours before and one hour after drinking the tea. However, if you must eat and take essiac at the same time, by all means do this. It is certainly better than missing a dose. Please be sure to shake vigorously before each use and do not strain anything.
