Essiac

 

 
  Essiac is the name of its discoverer spelled backwards. Rene Caisse was a Canadian nurse who as fate would have it met the husband of a breast cancer patient who attributed her survival to four herbs used by the Ojibwa Indians to treat malignant conditions. Ms. Caisse took a serious interest in the treatment and observed that the herbs seemed to have a direct effect on the pancreas, reducing or eliminating the need for insulin among diabetic patients.

Essiac® Liquid Extract, 10.14 oz.

This extract contains the herbs used in making Essiac® Tea, but the herbs are extracted in a solvent, such as alcohol, that is removed at the end of the process. It is therefore very concentrated compared to a tea.

For adults, take 2-4 tsp (10-20ml) twice daily, preferably one hour before or after meals. As a reminder, discuss the supplements and medications you take with your health care providers. One bottle will last 1-2 weeks if taken as suggested. Use within 2 weeks after opening.

Ojibwa Detox, 4 oz.

This is our version of the well-known Essiac formula used by Rene Caisse after learning about it from the husband of a breast cancer patient who attributed her survival to four herbs used by the Ojibwa Indians to treat malignant conditions. The name is Caisse spelled backwards. According to the those who have studied the formula, all four herbs normalize bodily systems by purifying the blood, promoting cell repair, and aiding effective assimilation and elimination. When combined, their separate beneficial effects are synergistically enhanced. We have named this Ojibwa Detox to give credit to those who passed the recipe to others and to emphasize that our view is that the formula is primarily detoxifying.

Contains: Proprietary Extract: Burdock (Arctium lappa) root, Sheep Sorrel (Rumex ocetosella) leaf, Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra) bark, and Turkey Rhubarb (Rheum palmatum) bark in Organic Cane Alcohol, Distilled Water, and Vegetable Glycerin.
