Essiac Tea Myths and Misconceptions

There are so many myths and misconceptions about essiac tea. Read on to learn about essiac tea myths and what the real truth is.


Myth #1:  Essiac tea needs to be stored in amber bottles. 

Truth:  Essiac tea is stored in your refrigerator, where it is dark! Therefore it doesn't matter whether essiac is stored in an amber bottle or a clear one.


Myth #2:  Essiac tea needs to be boiled twice. 

Truth:  Our essiac tea is formulated as according to Rene Caisse, and she created the formula so that it only needs to be boiled once.


Myth #3:  After brewing essiac, it's ok to strain the herbs. 

Truth:  The herbs themselves contain medicinal properties. It is similar to the idea of having orange juice or eating the whole orange. You'd miss out on some of the health benefits from only drinking the juice and never eating the entire fruit. This is why you should ingest the essiac herbs.


Myth #4: Essiac has 4 herbs.

Truth: Eight herb essiac is actually the formula that Rene Caisse and Dr. Brusch found worked best in their research. Click here to read more about 4-herb versus 8-herb essiac.
