Essiac Tea
Essiac tea is made from a blend of herbs. Legend has it that this blend was passed down through the Ojibwa medicine men. In 1922, it landed in the hands of an Ontario, Canada nurse named Rene Caisse. Although Rene was not ill at the time, she asked for the formula in case she might ever need it. Unfortunately and ironically, a member of her family had been diagnosed with cancer and was given six months to live. Sensing that she had "nothing to lose" Rene decided to test Essiac on her dying aunt. The result: the woman went on to live another 21 years, eventually dying of natural causes.

Inspired by Essiac's success with her aunt, Rene began to offer the remedy's recipe to anyone who asked for it. Soon thereafter, Dr. Charles Brusch (personal physician to former President John F. Kennedy) learned of the successes of Essiac Tea and became a research partner with Rene.

The original formula apparently had eight herbs. The common blend today contains Burdock Root, Sheep Sorrel, Turkish Rhubarb Root, Red Clover, Watercress, Blessed Thistle, Kelp and Slippery Elm bark. Although no formal, clinical studies have been performed to support the merits of Essiac Tea, many people have praised its effectiveness for relief from ailments which include cancer, arthritis, circulatory problems, urinary tract infections, prostate irregularities and asthma.

Green Tea
