Learn How to Decide on the Essiac Tea Dosage That is Right For You

You will choose your essiac tea dosage based on whether or not you currently have a health condition that you'd like to improve. The Improvement of Health Dosage is by far the most common and we suggest you start there if you are new to essiac or if there is something about your health that you wish to improve.

The only reported side effect while using essiac for the first time is an increased frequency in needing to use the bathroom. This side effect doesn't happen to everyone and, while it can be an inconvenience, it's part of how the product works. For that reason, we like to think of it not as a side effect, but as a desired effect. If it's too bothersome for you, you may start with one dose per day and build up to two or three doses per day over a week's time. Another option would be to stick with three doses per day but start with less than 3 oz. each time, and build up the size of the dose up to 3 oz. from there. Again, this is very rarely necessary as this is a very gentle and generally very well tolerated product.

The essiac dosages Rene Caisse made that we are passing along to you are in liquid ounces of brewed tea.

Essiac Tea Dosage Information: Guidelines

essiac tea doseOur dosing guidelines are the same as recommended by Rene Caisse, the Canadian nurse who first brought essiac into widespread use.

All doses should be taken on an empty stomach. The research by Rene Caisse showed best results when people took essiac on an empty stomach, as this will ensure maximum absorption of your essiac tea dose.

What does having an empty stomach mean for our purposes? This means you should avoid eating for 2 hours before and 1 hour after taking essiac for best results.

Example: Finish eating breakfast at 7am. You can have essiac at 9am. Have a quick snack at 10am. You can have essiac again at 12pm. You can have lunch at 1pm. Etc...

Aggressive Dose/Improvement of Health Dose

Most individuals choose to take the Aggressive dose/Improvement of Health dose because they are drinking essiac tea in an attempt to improve their health. It doesn't matter what your condition is - all are considered equal for this purpose, aside from thise given a terminal diagnosis or those undergoing chemo and/or radiation treatment. In that case, see our Aggressive Plus Dose information below.

Recommended Improvement of Health dose of essiac tea is 9 oz. per day of brewed tea, taken in three separate 3 oz. doses. You cannot take 4.5 oz. twice per day and expect the same results.

You should commit to the Improvement of Health dose for 6 months before you determine whether or not essiac is of benefit to you. Some people notice a benefit almost immediately, but for others it can take up to 6 months to notice an effect. We also cover our product with a Money Back Guarantee. Read more about the Improvement of Health dose here.

Aggressive PLUS Dose*

Aggressive PLUS dose is 6 oz. of brewed tea taken three times per day. This dose is the only exception to the rule that everyone wishing to improve health needs 3 oz. three times per day. Aggressive PLUS is for anyone that needs the strongest possible dose due to being told they have less than six months to live (as essiac can take up to six months for full benefit to appear). This is also the best dose for anyone that is currently receiving chemo or radiation treatment. Those treatments can interfere with essiac's ability to work hence the extra dose recommended, but essiac does not interfere with results from the chemo or radiation. 

Maintenance/Preventive Dose

You might choose to take the maintenance dose if you are currently enjoying good health and simply wish to maintain your health. You can also use this dose once your health problem that you had when you started taking essiac is all better.

The recommended maintenance dose of essiac tea is 6 oz. per day, taken in two separate 3 oz. doses. The maintenance dose still needs to be taken on an empty stomach.

Most people choose to remain on the maintenance dose indefinitely. If a health problem develops they can then switch to the aggressive dose for a little while until their test results return to normal once again. There is no reason or need to go off of the essiac or to take a break. Click here to read more about why a break from essiac is not necessary. You can take it for the rest of your life if you like with no problems. That is exactly what we do for ourselves as well as our family!


essiac tea dosageReal essiac is always a thick, brown liquid. Don't accept any imposters!

No matter which dosage level you choose, this next part is important!

Why is there "sludge" at the bottom of my container after I've brewed my tea? Can I throw it out?

The herbs are important to consume as part of each essiac tea dosage. Therefore, please do not strain and throw out the particles at the bottom (some describe it as "mud" or "sludge"). It's important to get some of these particles into each and every dose. The most effective way to do this is to use a large wooden spoon to stir the pitcher before pouring each essiac tea dosage. You can leave the lid off your container while it's stored in the fridge to make this more convenient. Stirring tends to work better than shaking - especially when the pitcher is full. You can store your essiac in any type of pitcher that you'd normally use to make iced tea. Glass bottles or mason jars are not necessary, but you may use them if you wish. You may use any pitcher that you'd normally use to store iced tea.

Please follow our essiac tea dosage instructions even if other brands you encounter use different dosages. Many of the four herb essiac brands will call for 2 oz. of tea per serving, but since our brand has the eight herbs that Rene Caisse found to be the most effective, there is an extra oz. in each serving, making it 3 oz. per serving.
