Studies on Essiac Tea

Cancer Treatments- Dr. Charles Brusch and Rene Caisse (a Canadian nurse) collaborated to conduct clinical trials on Essiac in 1959. This video is a tribute to a woman who for 40 years tried to bring a natural cancer treatment to the people.


Rene Caisse discovered the health benefits of Essiac tea (her named spelled backwards) in 1922 through a Native American remedy that was given to her by a woman she treated. The main ingredients in Essiac are Sheep Sorrel, Burdock Root, Rhubarb root, and Sippery Elm Bark. She used this special tea to successfully treat hundreds of people through the years yet the FDA never let it become a "legalized" cancer treatment.

Unfortunately, Rene Caisse passed from this world on the day after Christmas, 1978, at 90 years of age. An amazing woman!

You can find Essiac tea and information all over the internet but make sure it contains all four of the above certified organic herbs!

PS: People have used Essiac successfully on pets with cancer also.

Change in Essiac Formula?
by: Colin

The Essiac I have used for more than 12 years has recently changed it's formula. Instead of 'Turkey Rhubarb it is now using 'indian rhubarb.'
Does anyone know what difference this may make? The manufacturer refuses to respond to my emails and phone calls which makes me very suspicious.
I'll be happy to share the brand and address if invited to do so by this site owner.

Turkey Rhubarb vs Indian Rhubarb
by: HFHR

Hi Colin,
From what I've read Rene Caisse used both Indian Rhubarb (Rheum officinale)and Turkey Rhubarb (Rheum palmatum) with success. BUT neither Indian rhubarb nor Turkey Rhubarb are native to Canada and since her orignal formula was from a Native American medicine man there's much controversy. (Though both of these herbs were available by order in the 1800's) Herbalists claim both of these are about the same medicinally. Your average garden rhubarb however does not have these same properties.

There is an herb of the Rumex genus that is known to North American indigenous peoples as "Indian rhubarb". Its latin name is Rumex occidentalis and is commonly known as Western Dock. It is also known as Rumex fenestratus or Rumex aquaticus (Water Dock) since it grows in wet areas. Some believe this was the orginal herb in the formula and since Rene was very secretive about it we may never know for sure. But, you can take heart in the fact that both Indian rhubarb and Turkey rhubarb have about the same medicinal qualities and combined with the other herbs in the Essiac Tea formula, well, you know it's good stuff!
