Essiac Tea was promoted and popularized by a Canadian nurse named Rene M. Caisse, who named the formula with her last name spelled backwards. Born in 1888, Rene Caisse promoted the use of her tea in the treatment of a steady stream of cancer patients until her death in 1978 at the age of ninety. Caisse’s cancer cure was used by persons with prostate cancer, advanced bladder cancer, and advanced breast cancer who are documented to have gone into remission.
Today, if she were alive and promoting her cancer-curing tea, she would most certainly come under fire by American medical bodies who do not want people being healed from cancer and thus costing them hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The historic blend contains just four herbs: organic Burdock Root, organic Rhubarb Root, organic Slippery Elm Bark and organic Sheep Sorrel. The efficacy of Essiac against various cancers can be partially explained by the cancer-fighting properties of the herbs in the formula, i.e. emodin, asriamycin, platinol, rubex, and taxol, to name a few.
A report in August 2004 edition of the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine suggests that the greatest benefit of Essiac may be found in treating prostate cancer, more specifically prostate cancer in men with compromised immune systems. Essiac Tea has a mild and pleasant taste.
