Ever wondered if you need to take time off from essiac? The short answer is "No."
It's true that with many other herbal products it's recommended to take time off from using it so that your body doesn't "get used to it." In some cases with products like these, taking time off is even more critical because it's possible to overload your body with certain compounds if you never take a break. Other times, these products may simply stop working after a certain period of time, and they become a waste of time and money.
This information is based off of Rene Caisse and Dr. Charles Brusch's research on essiac tea at the Brusch Medical Research Center from the years of 1957 through 1967. You can read more about that here. The information is also documented in the book The Essiac Report by Richard Thomas.
So why don't you need time off from essiac exactly? Well, for one, essiac tea has much more in common food than it does with other herbal supplements. Many of the ingredients in essiac tea are found in the diet naturally, such as watercress and kelp. Like other healthy habits such as taking walks, taking a break from essiac isn't necessary or advised. Another reason is that the product is extremely gentle, and that's why it's designed to be taken for at least six months at a time - the opposite of a quick detox!
You may have encountered misinformation on other sites stating that it's best to take time off from essiac tea - but that doesn't mean it's correct information. We can assure you that there is no reason at all to take a break. Don't fall for this misinformation.
When you first begin using essiac, we recommend that you take it 3 oz. three times per day for at least six months. After the six months have passed, you can choose between the aggressive dose or the maintenance dose.
The bottom line is this: feel free to keep on using your essiac tea as long as you would like to receive the benefits! There is no reason at all to take time off. If you have any other questions for us about the need for an essiac tea break, please reach out and ask.
Our 13 4 oz. packet order size will last 6 months at the aggressive dose, or 9 months at the maintenance dose. It's a great value! The herbs stay good for up to 2 years from date of purchase. Order now.
