Essiac, given its name by Rene Caisse ("caisse" spelt backwards), consists of four main herbs that grow in the wilderness of Ontario, Canada. The original formula is believed to have its roots in native Canadian Ojibway medicine.
Essiac Tea has been used for many years to purify and balance the body. The herbs combined to formulate Essiac Tea work synergistically by stimulating the production of antibodies.
The four main herbs that make up Essiac are Burdock Root, Slippery Elm Inner Bark, Sheep Sorrel and Indian Rhubarb Root.
The four herbs may help normalize body systems by cleansing the blood, purging toxic build up, promoting cell repair and aiding in effective assimilation and elimination. When combined, it is believed that their separate beneficial effects are enhanced.
Given modern interest in naturopathic medicine and progress in scientific understanding of the human immune system, Essiac remains at the forefront of alternative formulas.
