Why brew essiac tea at home? For one, you must brew essiac tea if you're looking to benefit as much as possible from essiac tea. The other reason: it's so much more affordable!
***We use the entire sheep sorrel plant, including the roots, in our formula!***
No one is exactly sure how it works, but laboratory results show that nothing works as well as the freshly brewed tea. Pre-brewed teas, capsules, and tea bags haven't been as effective from our experience. When you use a tea bag, you're not going to get the herb particles in the brew. These particles are super important for your results from drinking the tea. Therefore, we advise you to brew your own essiac tea using our proven formula--and be sure you brew a fresh batch every two weeks. Some people ask, 'why brew essiac tea?' Well, if you buy it pre-made, it's going to cost you 8-10 times as much per bottle! Yikes.
Although many of the formulas that claim to be "essiac" are similar, all of them are not the same. There are many reasons for this. Unethical marketers, pricing wars, and false claims about which is the "true/original" essiac and which are fakes have made it difficult for people to know what they are buying. There is a four herb essiac that is widely sold. In our experience, the eight herb essiac is superior. Our eight herb essiac contains the original four herbs in the original ratios, but is combined with four additional herbs that helps enhance the effectiveness when the tea is taken orally.
Also, anyone who markets any supplement under the name "essiac" (or one of the several variations of the name), in any of the following forms is not selling you the most effective product:
--Pre-brewed teas or juices
We only carry the eight herb formula because that is what we have found to yield the best results. The eight herb formula we use was researched and tested by Dr. Brusch and Rene Caisse in his Boston (Cambridge) medical clinic. We believe this is the most effective formula available.
