Generally, you will choose your essiac tea dosage based on whether or not you currently have a health conditon that you'd like to improve. Always adjust your dosage according to your individual needs and tolerance if necessary. Sometimes folks feel best when they start with one dose per day and build up to two or three over a week's time, but most tolerate the initial 3 oz. of tea three times per day right away just fine. Most people don't need to build up, they can start on 3 oz. three times per day right away.

All doses should be taken on an empty stomach. Essiac tested best on people who took it with an empty stomach, and this will ensure maximum absorption of your essiac tea dosage. 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...
Most individuals choose to take the aggressive 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 dramatically. 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 it takes others up to 6 months to notice an effect. We also cover our product with a six-month Money Back Guarantee.
Aggressive PLUS Dose
Aggressive PLUS dose is 6 oz. of brewed tea taken three times per day. This dose 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, but essiac does not interfere with those treatments).
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 program that you started taking essiac for is all better.
Recommended maintenance dose of essiac tea is 6 oz. per day, taken in two separate 3 oz. doses.
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 again.
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"). It's important to get some of these particles into each and every dose. The most effective way to do this for most people 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.Click here to read about the top risk factors for developing cancer
