Can stevia, other sweetener or other herbs be added to Essiac tea?


Essiac tea should not be altered in any way before drinking except to dilute it with water.  Rene Caisse researched and developed this formula over a period of 50 years with real cancer patients.  She did not use a sweetener with it.  She reduced the original First Nations formula to just four herbs.  When anything is added to these four herbs it no longer can be called Essiac.  Also, if one puts these herbs in capsules or makes them into a tincture, it can no longer be called Essiac because Essiac is a decoction.  Rene Caisse stated:  "If it works, don't change it."   [ESSIAC ESSENTIALS, p. 84]

On the other hand we all have the freedom and right to experiment on ourselves.  Many people have altered the Essiac formula to fit the needs of their body.  The Sovereigns' Health Freedom Network website supports freedom to "self-medicate" because we all own our bodies.  The government cannot lawfully dictate what we put in our own bodies.  The government is supposed to serve the people, not poison them with dangerous pharmaceutical drugs while attacking people who sell safe, health-giving herbs.

People like Dr. Charles Brusch who altered Rene Caisse's formula certainly have the natural right to do so.  However, it is unethical for people to market it as Rene Caisse's Essiac tea.  CLICK HERE for more information on Dr. Brusch's and Elaine Alexander's eight-herb formula.

"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]
