Essiac Tea

Essiac Tea has been used for many years to purify and balance the body. The herbs combined to formulate Essiac Tea work synergistically by stimulating the production of antibodies.

Essiac Tea is used to supplement, support and strengthen the immune system of individuals suffering from cancer. Essiac Tea is a combination of burdock root, sheep sorrel, slippery elm bark and Turkish rhubarb root.

Essiac Tea has been used to treat individuals who suffer from cancer, AIDS and diabetes. In addition, it may be used to treat inflammatory skin problems, liver ailments, thyroid conditions, stomach ulcers and other degenerative diseases.

Essiac Tea is beneficial for alleviating pain, purifying the blood and increasing energy levels. It also promotes the healing of wounds and helps lower cholesterol levels and relieve diarrhea.

Women who are pregnant or nursing should consult their health care practitioner before using Essiac Tea.
