Essiac Tea Dosage
Recommendations in Metric

Take your essiac tea on an empty stomach for best results. This means: Avoid eating for 2 hours before taking essiac. Avoid eating for 1 hour after taking essiac.

Example: Wake up and take essiac at 7am (you weren't eating while sleeping). You can then eat at 8am. You can take essiac again at 10am. You can then eat at 11am. Etc.



If you have cancer or another illness, we recommend that you take 270 mL of tea per day, divided into three 90-mL doses.

If you are currently being treated with chemotherapy and/or radiation, we recommend that you take 270-540 mL of tea per day, divided into three 90-180 mL doses.

If you are simply trying to maintain good health, take 90 mL once or twice per day.

Do not brew essiac tea more than two weeks ahead: it will stay good for about 14 days, but after that you should make a fresh batch of tea.

If you do not like the taste, you may mix essiac tea with fruit or vegetable juice. Most people consume essiac tea cold.
