What is the Essiac Amount Per Day That I Will Need?

Wondering the Essiac Amount Per Day That is Best For You?

The essiac amount per day that's best isn't the simplist thing to answer. One reason is because there is such a fluctuation on suggested serving size and number of servings per day among popular brands. A lot of the brands of essiac tea come labeled with a 2 oz. serving size, however you will see that we have a 3 oz. suggested serving size listed. In addition, some of those brands will ask for you to take the tea at a maximum of twice per day whereas ours can vary between twice per day and three times per day depending on the status of your health.

The number of herbs in your essiac formula is one reason why the serving suggestions vary from brand to brand.

With many other brands you're getting the outdated 4 herb formula. Ours is an 8 herb formula.

The four herb formula is the older one that Rene Caisse used prior to completing her research at the Brusch Medical Research Center in 1967. Rene Caisse and Dr. Charles Brusch, who also happened to be President Kennedy's physican, performed the most extensive research ever done on essiac tea and determined that the 8 herb formula outperformed all the others. You can read more about that research on this page.

The 8 herb formula is made up of the original 4 essiac herbs, plus 4 additional herbs. The original 4 herbs were:

  • burdock root
  • sheep sorrel
  • slippery elm bark
  • turkish rhubarb root

Rene Caisse and Dr. Charles Brusch added these 4 additional herbs after completing their research:

  • blessed thistle
  • kelp
  • red clover
  • watercress

The Reason Why the Number of Herbs Affects the Serving Size

essiac how much per dayBe sure you purchase eight herb essiac if you want the formula that outperformed all others in the research.

The recommended essiac amount per day of 4 herb essiac is 2 oz. because there are fewer herbs in that formula. In order to preserve the original ratios of the 4 herbs but also have room for the 4 additional herbs that Rene Caisse added, there is another 1 oz. of tea added to the dose for the 8 herb formula. This leaves you with a 3 oz. essiac dose!

There Are Two More Reasons Why The Essiac Dose May Be Different from Brand to Brand

You may have an eight herb essiac on your hands that still lists the serving size as 2 oz. Why might that be?

Reason Number 1.

Some brands will provide you with a more potent product that you are required to add 1 oz. of water to in order to dilute it. Sometimes this is due to a costs when the product is already premade in liquid form - you certainly don't want to pay for extra water. That makes sense. On the other hand, when it's recommended that you add more water to a tea you have already brewed yourself, in our opinion this simply adds unnecessary complication. In that case we think it's best to brew it at the correct potency right at the start, just as Rene Caisse did.

Reason Number 2.

It's common practice for some supplement companies to lower a recommended serving size so that you think you're getting more for your dollar. It's important to know the serving size the research says is necessary and not always simply follow what the packaging says.

For example, if a supplement that is in capsule form says to take 1 capsule per day, yet the research for that product shows three capsules per day is what it takes to produce a measurable result, you want to know the truth versus blindly following what's on the label. The company in question may think you won't bother buying the product if you have to take too much of it since that costs more. However, it's truly a waste of money to take lower than the required minimum dose of something, so be sure to do your homework before buying and using supplements. You want to commit to taking the amount that is necessary for change, otherwise you're really throwing money down the toilet.

How Many Doses of Essiac Tea You'll Take are Based on Condition.

Hopefully now you are clear on the essiac amount per day that you need! In summary, be sure that you are taking 3 oz. three times per day if you are looking to improve your health. You can take 3 oz. twice per day if you are looking to maintain health (stay the same, or use preventively). Keep in mind, you may have a company that says you only need to take essiac twice per day no matter what. That is simply false and not based on any research as you will see documented in the book The Essiac Report by Richard Thomas.
