Essiac Tea Cancer Treatment

Written by Webster Kehr, Independent Cancer Research Foundation, Inc. | Last updated on | Filed under: Supplemental Treatments

TREATMENT RATING: By itself, this cancer protocol is rated ONLY as being effective on newly diagnosed cancer patients who do not have a fast-growing cancer and their cancer has not spread significantly.

For advanced cancer patients Essiac Tea should only be a supplemental protocol to one of the major protocols, such as Cellect-Budwig, Cesium Chloride, the Photon Protocol, the Dirt Cheap Protocol (if you cannot afford one of the other major protocols), etc.

Essiac Tea may also be useful in protecting the liver.

If you are an advanced cancer patient who has had a lot of chemotherapy, radiation or surgery or you have a potentially fast-growing cancer, do not use this protocol as your primary cancer protocol; use one of the major protocols just listed:

Chapter on Treatments Rated For Advanced Cancer Patients


How It Works

Essiac is a product that is composed of 4 or more herbs, two of which (Sheep Sorrel and Burdock Root) are known to kill cancer cells. The other two herbs build the immune system and deal with detox and protecting the organs.

Essiac Tea

Essiac Tea is a long-proven method of curing cancer. It dates back to the 1920s and before.

While the basic components of Essiac are well known, the exact proportions of the herbs in Essiac are the matter of much speculation. The cancer patient should be far more concerned with the quality of the herbs, and the quality of the processing, than with the exact formula. Some brands have 4, 6 or 8 herbs (e.g. Flor-Essence has 8 herbs). The extra herbs won’t hurt, and may be of some help. But again, the quality of the herbs, and the quality of the processing, is the most important issue.

It should be mentioned that it is the Sheep Sorrel that is the main cancer killing herb in Essiac. Sheep Sorrel has been known about for more than a hundred years as a cancer-fighting herb.

Several Important Notices

Warnings: Avoid using plastic and aluminum while preparing formula or storing formula. If a green mold appears, discard contents. Sunlight destroys aspects of formula. Do not Freeze.

Currently, Essiac Tea is considered to be a “Phase III cancer treatment,” meaning it is not considered strong enough to be at the core of a “Stage IV” treatment. This does not mean, however, that it would not be an effective addition to a “Stage IV” treatment.

When Rene Caisse was treating patients, she would make her own tea and have it to her customers usually within 48 hours of making it. However, when you order Essiac Tea by mail, it may be several months old.

The reason it is not a “Stage IV cancer treatment” is because of the way some of the Essiac Tea products have been dehydrated, processed and stored.

This treatment would be higher rated if people grew their own herbs or knew someone who did grow their own herbs.

Here is an excellent article on who should NOT take Essiac Tea (e.g. pregnant women):

Brain cancer patients could probably take Essiac Tea if some temporary swelling would not put them at risk.

Supercharging This Treatment

The value of Essiac Tea would be greatly enhanced by combining it with the Bill Henderson Protocol. The Bill Henderson Protocol, by itself, is a Stage IV treatment, and it includes the diet that should be used when taking Essiac Tea. NO alternative cancer treatment should be used without a good “cancer diet” which does not feed the cancer cells. See:

Bill Henderson Protocol

An alternative cancer treatment should be a complete treatment protocol. Do NOT forget to study the complete treatment protocol for Stage I, II and III cancer patients and the complete treatment protocol for Stage IV cancer patients:
