Herbal medicine is used around the world to relieve a variety of ailments, diseases, and health problems.
Herbal medicine has been used for thousands of years to improve people's health. Essiac tea has been used in Canada to treat people with cancer since the early 1900s. The eight herbs that make up essiac help the body eliminate toxins, and by doing that they build up the body's immune system.
People with the following health conditions may benefit from the eight herbs in the essiac formula:
1. High Blood Pressure
2. Chronic Fatigue
3. Chronic Pain
6. Kidney and Bladder problems
8. Liver Problems
9. Colon Trouble
10. Sinus Trouble
12. Pneumonia and Chest Colds
13. High Cholesterol
Essiac tea has not been tested or proven to be effective in treating the above conditions. This is because essiac tea is a blend of herbs, not a drug, and therefore cannot be FDA approved.
However, the eight essiac herbs all are believed to have particular properties that may be beneficial to health. You can read a brief description of some of these beneficial properties here.
