My Essiac Tea Story
Since 1998, I have been distributing Essiac Tea. My first findings with Essiac happened when my father had been stricken with cancer. As we all know the devastating news that stops the world around you and sets everyone in a panic. After things settled a bit my brother Gary, who lives in Florida, and I decided to investigate alternative treatments. By this time, my father had received surgery, radiation and starting chemo. He looked worse after all that so we needed to get things going if we wanted to get him some relief. We had searched out many Essiac dealers but I found one nearby and that was perfect. I purchased some Essiac and got it to my brother to brew. My father was so weak in his body and mind that the doctors suggested that he go to a hospice for care since they didn’t expect him to be around much longer, so we got him there and settled. My brother would have to sneak the Essiac in every day since the hospice regulations do not allow any type of medicine other than what prescribed to him by his doctors. Upon doing so, my father had been taking Essiac for about 3 weeks and his health was improving, so much so that after about a month and a half the doctors and the staff recommended he be released and go back home. Apparently he was driving them crazy too so we knew he was feeling better. This was unusual since a hospice seemed to be one of the last stops in life. Getting home, he continued the Essiac for quite some time until his will to live had been diminished and he stopped everything. I felt very sad and also angry that he let go but that’s a personal decision we all have an option to make.
After some time went by, I contacted the Essiac dealer and told him our story. He said that he hears these stories often. I was very pleased with hearing this. I shared my story with many people and most of them asked me where I can get this Essiac Tea. I talk to my dealer friend and he suggested I become a dealer and sell it them myself, so I did. One of his wishes is that I don’t overcharge for the tea. This was the wish of Rene Caisse and since he got the final Essiac Tea formula from Dr. Brusch himself that he would always honor her request. In doing so, this is why my pricing is so fair. Our herbs are always organic and fresh. Please visit my website at www.reneshealthytea.com and see what Essiac can do for you. Please feel free to contact me, I am always willing to help.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story. Eric

Below are the eight herbs that are used in our Essiac Tea Formula:
Blessed Thistle: is used for digestive problems such as gas, constipation and upset stomach. This herb is also used to treat liver and gallbladder diseases.
Burdock Root: is a mild diuretic. It increases the production of both urine and sweat, potentially making it useful in treating swelling and fever. The exact reason for this protective effect is not known, but it is thought to involve opposition of a chemical process called oxidation, which is a reaction that occurs in the body during normal metabolism. One result of oxidation is the release of free radicals, which are chemicals that may suppress immune function and have been linked with cancer. Antioxidants such as Burdock Root may protect body cells from damage caused by oxidation.
Kelp: is a sea vegetable that is a concentrated source of minerals, including iodine, potassium, magnesium, calcium, andiron. Kelp as a source of iodine assists in making thyroid hormones, which are necessary for maintaining normal metabolism in all cells of the body. This increases energy levels, boosts the immune system and makes it easier to maintain a healthy body weight.
Red Clover: is a source of many valuable nutrients, including calcium, chromium, magnesium, niacin, phosphorous, potassium, thiamine and Vitamin C. Red Clover is also a rich source of isoflavones, which are water-soluble chemicals that act like estrogens in the body.
Sheep Sorrel: (INCLUDING THE ROOTS) contains an abundance of oxalic acid, sodium, potassium, iron, manganese, phosphorous, Beta Carotene and Vitamin C. Sheep Sorrel is a mild diuretic, mild antiseptic and a mild laxative.
Slippery Elm Bark: This herb also helps to alleviate sore throats. Slippery Elm Bark is an active ingredient in throat lozenges. Since sore throat and cough are often linked, Slippery Elm Bark has also been used in cough remedies. It also can alleviate both constipation and diarrhea by regulating the digestive tract.
Turkish Rhubarb Root: is a detoxifying herb. According to Mary Mcpherson, Rene Caisse switched over to using the Turkey root in the later years, claiming it is less bitter and more palatable. Supporters of the Turkey variety also draw on its rich history of Chinese medicinal uses over the centuries. It is widely regarded as the most potent variety of rhubarb, known in China as Dahuang. One advantage of using the Turkey (also known as the Chinese) rhubarb is that the Chinese uses six year old roots for maximum potency. Such old plants are hard to come by in North America.
Watercress: is abundant in Vitamin C and is used as a general tonic; its bitter taste is thought to stimulate the appetite and improve digestion.
