All the Essiac Tea Dosage Information You Need is Found Right Here.

Generally, you will choose your essiac tea dosage based on whether or not you currently have a health condition that you'd like to improve. Always adjust your dosage according to your individual needs and tolerance if necessary. Almost everyone tolerates the initial 3 oz. of tea three times per day right away just fine. In rare instances however folks prefer to start with one dose per day and build up to two or three over a week's time. Another option would be to start with less than the 3 oz. each time, and build up the size of the dose from there. Again, this is very rarely necessary as this is a very gentle and well tolerated product.

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

Essiac Tea Dosage Information: Guidelines

essiac tea doseOur dosing guidelines are the same as recommended by Rene Caisse.

All doses should be taken on an empty stomach. The essiac research by Rene Caisse showed best results when people took it with an empty stomach, and 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. An aggressive regimen is required if you expect your health to improve. It doesn't matter what your condition is - all are considered equal for this purpose*.

Recommended aggressive 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 aggressive dose for 6 months before you determine whether 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 Six-Month Money Back Guarantee. Read more about the aggressive dose.

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. It is appropriate 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), or 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 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.

Recommended maintenance dose of essiac tea is 6 oz. per day, taken in two separate 3 oz. doses, still on an empty stomach.

Most people choose to remain on the maintenance dose indefinitely. If a health problem develops they 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.

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

No matter which dosage level you choose, this paragraph 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 dose. 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 dose. 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.
