Organic Essiac Tea is a blend created and made famous by Rene Caisse. This version follows the original recipe and uses only premium quality certified organic herbs for maximum effect.  Reduces heavy metal deposits in tissues.  Increases the body's ability to utilize oxygen by raising the oxygen level in the tissue cells.  Relieves pain. Essiac tea is also used by many people for all around health and prevention.

The herbs which are used in Essiac tea are abounding in natural vitamins and minerals.  Not to be left out are the antioxidants which are known to protect against cell damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are not what we are wanting in the body, as it can lead to cell injury and death.

This product contains Rhubarb Root (Rheum palmatum). Read and follow directions carefully. Do not use if you have or develop diarrhea, loose stools, or abdominal pain because Rhubarb Root may worsen these conditions and be harmful to your health. Consult your physician if you have frequent diarrhea or if you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition. Individuals with a history of kidney stones should use this herb cautiously.


The Sheep Sorrel controversy:   To Root or not to Root, that is the question.

Sheep Sorrel in this blend by Starwest Botanicals is the "Herb" which means stem, or stem, leaf and twig.  For some reason there is a controversy over if you want true Essiac Tea it MUST use Sheep Sorrel Root.  This is not true.   If though you look up the history of Nurse Rene Caisse you will see that the Sheep Sorrel which she was taught to use by a Canadian Ojibwa Indian, was the herb, and not the root.  Again if viewing the documentation, it states very clearly that the authentic Essiac contains Sheep Sorrel Leaves, the conterfiet contains Sheep Sorrel Root. Why this debate continues over the root or leaves is foolish, yet it is important to bring the truth to the forefront. Sadly many people will tell lies just to make a dollar, instead of caring about the quality and integrity of thier herbs and formulas.
