What is Essiac?
Essiac consists of four common herbs that include Burdock Root (Arctium Lappa), Sheep Sorrel (Rumex Acetosella), Slippery Elm (Ulmus Fulva) and Turkey Rhubarb (Pheum Palmatum). It is said cancer nurse Rene Caisse obtained the formula and directions for brewing from an Ojibway Indian medicine man in the 1920's. These four herbs were blended and cooked in a fashion which caused the concoction to have greater medicinal potency than any of the four herbs by themselves.
In more recent studies Essiac Tea has been reported to help Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's and AIDS.
