Essiac Tea Herbal Blend
Essiac tea is a special herbal blend inspired by the Ojibwa native American Indians of Ontario, Canada.
It is widely known for its remarkable ability to boost the immune system & detoxify the body.
Based on the original recipe, the Essiac herbal formula has an interesting history dating back to the early 1920’s when Nurse Rene Cassie formulated the herbal blend based on a recipe from an old Indian medicine man.
Nurse Cassie’s formula, which she tested on laboratory mice and human cancer patients, included sheep sorrel, burdock root, slippery elm bark powder and Turkish Rhubarb. Under the supervision of doctors, Nurse Cassie operated a cancer clinic in Ontario where she treated hundreds of cancer sufferers.
Based on the original recipe, I have used Burdock root, which is an effective blood purifier that neutralizes and eliminates poisons and toxins from the body. Burdock has a well- established reputation for detoxification and support of the liver and organs of elimination. Burdock contains niacin, which is known to help eliminate radiation from the body.
Sheep Sorrel contains aloe emodin, a natural substance that shows significant anti-leukemic activity.
Slippery Elm bark powder is well known for its soothing and healing properties. Slippery Elm is derived from an American deciduous tree and it can be helpful for inflammatory irritations, from a sore throat to urinary problems.
Turkish rhubarb root has been shown in research to have anti-tumour activity. It is diuretic, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial and can help to relieve constipation. It is medicinally more potent that garden rhubarb root.
In this 100gm packet, I have used the milled roots to enable you to make the tea as an infusion rather than boiling as a decoction. That means you can make my blend by adding the herbs to a teapot and pour over boiling water. It makes it very easy to manage. Milling roots does not detract from the potency so you can be assured that the organic herbs used are just as potent whether boiled as a decoction or brewed as an infusion.
(An infusion is what you make when you put a tea bag in a cup with hot water.) Infusion will extract vitamins and volatile oils from leaves and flowers. A decoction will extract these components from hard materials such as un-milled roots, bark or seeds.
Nurse Cassie’s story is well worth looking up as she had support from some very eminent medical people, including Dr Frederick Bantin, the co-discoverer of insulin who offered Nurse Cassie research facilities to test her herbal blend.
