Why brew essiac tea at home? There are a couple of reasons. 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!***
It's not clear yet exactly 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 to 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. This is the same formula that Rene Caisse found worked best in her research.
We carry the eight herb formula exclusively 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 Medical Clinic in Cambridge, MA from 1959 through 1967. We believe this is the most effective formula available. Click on the link to learn more about the eight herb essiac formula.
