What You Need to Know About Taking Essiac and Radiation At the Same Time

If you're thinking of combining essiac and radiation, you're not alone. Whether you begin radiation and then discover essiac or you start with essiac and then add radiation, it's important to understand how the two affect one another.

The good news is that essiac and radiation can go hand in hand. If you are on radiation, know that the essiac will not interfere with the results from that treatment. It's totally fine to add essiac tea to a radiation protocol. In fact, many folks report that when they add essiac, some of the unpleasant side effects are reduced. In particular, many report that they experience less in the way of side effects of nausea, reduced appetite, and lethargy that can occur from radiation.

What about looking at it the other way? Does radiation interfere with essiac? The answer is: yes it can. Radiation can reduce the effectiveness of essiac tea. However, the good news is that this is easily remedied! The solution is to increase the amount of each essiac dose. Increase the dose from the 3 oz. per dose it is normally to 6 oz. with each dose. This will bring the effectiveness of essiac back to the usual level.

Go Ahead and Get Your Medical Practitioner's Take on Essiac and Radiation

We encourage you to work with your doctor regarding all the treatments you are pursuing. It is important that your doctor is aware of what you are doing for your health. However, please be advised that most medical schools don't cover herbal teas such as essiac. It's very possible that your doctor doesn't know much if anything about essiac. Even still, we suggest mentioning that you use essiac to your doctor when he/she asks what you are putting into your body. It is harder for them to help you and guide how you use essiac when they don't know the full story. Be prepared for them to not know about it though and possibly discourage you from continuing essiac. 

We certainly want you to follow your doctor's suggestions, but at the same time it isn't their fault they don't always get the information they might need about herbs in their educational process. With that in mind, be aware that consulting with an expert on alternative medicine (not us - we are just people who sell the tea) might be in order if you are serious about combining herbal teas with traditional medical treatments. Licensed naturopaths can be a great resource in instances like this. 

Today there are so many options for health care - be sure to pursue all avenues in the name of your health, and seek out the experts you need to achieve the outcome you're after!
