Will Essiac Tea alone cure cancer?
The answer to this question is a matter viewpoint. It is my viewpoint that no herb "cures" anything. Drugs also do not cure anything. Drugs are usually just used to treat the symptoms of disease and they often have very negative side effects (including death).
It is actually the human body that "cures". Medicinal herbs, natural foods and supplements are merely tools which the body uses to remedy situations in which the body is out of balance. The physiological functions of the human body are extremely complex and "modern science" is just beginning to understand how the body uses food to manufacture specific compounds for an incredible number of microbiological functions to maintain health and keep our bodies from succumbing to bacteria, viruses, pollution, genetic weaknesses, etc.
Furthermore, it is not just the physical body that cures. Our mental, emotional and spiritual state of being plays a significant role in creating a condition of health or a condition of disease. We can decide to put toxic and destructive substances in our bodies such as tobacco, junk food, alcohol, sugar, etc., or we can decide to put pure water and fresh, organic food in our bodies and get plenty of exercise and fresh air. The choice is ours to make as individuals. For example, I provided Essiac tea to a friend who smoked cigarettes. She initially reported feeling better taking the tea everyday. However, she chose to continue smoking and then quit drinking Essiac tea. She later died of lung cancer. Although herbs can help mitigate side effects of unhealthy habits, it is not realistic to continue such habits believing that herbs will somehow magically cancel them out.
Essiac tea is food. The four herbs in Essiac tea have been used as food and medicine since time immemorial. More specifically, it is a very good natural food that addresses many of the conditions that plague modern society such as pollution, toxic food and water, over-processed food, unnatural food additives, unsustainable farming practices that use toxic substances to control pests and "weeds", etc. Before the industrial revolution people ate foods more directly from Nature and our bodies have genetically evolved with these natural foods. In the past hundred years or so "modern science" has brought us unnatural chemicals and products that our bodies have never had to process before. Consequently, degenerative "diseases" such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and obesity are at all-time highs.
Therefore, in my opinion anyone with cancer or other serious illness should look at how they can improve their diets overall because no vitamin, mineral, amino acid, flavonoid, enzyme, antioxidant, etc. functions alone. People should not rely on Essiac alone because we need all the nutrients that Nature has provided for human bodies for a very long time. A raw food vegan diet is usually recommended by naturopaths for cancer patients. From the testimonials that I have read over several years, the best results from Essiac tea are achieved when used in conjunction with a raw food vegan diet. The Gerson diet is a good example of a healthy diet for cancer patients. Click on the "Beautiful Truth" picture on the left to get a great movie on the Gerson diet.
Mainstream medical doctors are not trained in nutrition and medicinal herbs. Unfortunately, they are trained in prescribing drugs from powerful pharmaceutical corporations and these drugs often have insidious and often devastating side effects. Over 100,000 people die in hospitals every year from FDA-approved pharmaceutical drugs and millions more suffer adverse side effects from these drugs. Therefore, medical doctors often do more harm than good. If I had cancer or other serious illness I would seek out a competent naturopathic doctor, nutritionist and/or herbalist to find out what specific nutrients my body may be requiring and start on a strict nutritional program, preferably a raw foods/vegan diet, which would also include exercise, fresh air, meditation, visualization and positive thinking. I would discontinue any habits destructive to my health and I would give my body the tools it needs to maintain health. I consider Essiac tea to be one of those tools and that is why I drink it every day.
In the words of Thomas Edison: "The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."

The book HERBAL MEDICINE, HEALING & CANCER by Donald Yance is a very good reference for learning about many of the healing foods and supplements used for cancer treatment.
"We all have the right to benefit from Essiac because no one can stop us making it, no one can stop us taking it and no one can stop us deciding how and when we're going to do it." [THE ESSIAC BOOK by Mali Klein, 2006]
