What is Essiac Tea?


Essiac is a traditional, pleasant-tasting four-herb tea which was developed from a native American tea by Canadian nurse Rene Caisse.  According to the research of Sheila Snow and Mali Klein the original, native formula consisted of eight herbs


Essiac is not a "drug" nor is it a "supplement"--two words which have "legal" ramifications.  Essiac is simply a traditional herbal tea and as such is not subject to government regulation under common law.  Also, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), like the Social Security Administration, is a corporation and is not authorized under the Constitution of these United States of America.


Rene Caisse tested the tea on mice and used it on cancer patients in her cancer clinic in Bracebridge, Ontario.  After fifty years of testing various herbal combinations Nurse Caisse modified the original native formula and eventually reduced it to a decoction of the following four herbs:  cut burdock root, sheep sorrel powder, root included, slippery elm bark powder and turkey rhubarb root.  According to Rene Caisse, sheep sorrel roots  are "very essential" to the formula.  Therefore, if sheep sorrel roots are not included, it is not authentic Essiac tea.  Unlike Chinese green tea or black tea, Essiac tea does not contain caffeine. 


Rene Caisse called her tea "Essiac"--her surname spelled backwards.  Click here to read The Truth About Essiac for more information.  The picture on the right visually shows the proportions of each herb according to Mary McPherson's affidavit of the Essiac tea formula:


Burdock Root (Arctium lappa), upper left

Sheep Sorrel Leaf & Root (Rumex acetosella), upper right

Slippery Elm Bark (Ulmus Rubra/Fulva), lower left

Turkey (Chinese) Rhubarb (Rheum Palmatum Tanguticum), lower right


Rene Caisse stated:  "My decoction is a non-toxic drink made from herbs which are of definite benefit for cancer."  [THE ESSENCE OF ESSIAC, p. 122-3]



Rene Caisse also referred to whole herb sheep sorrel as "Essiac".  Rene sometimes treated patients with sheep sorrel solution (decoction) alone, apart from the tea.  She referred to sheep sorrel decoction as "Essiac" in her letters to Dr. Chester Stock.


Rene Caisse found that Essiac tea could also help diabetics.  In fact, Essiac tea is a foundational tea that supports the body's immune system, helps to detoxify the body, soothes and supports the digestive tract, helps certain skin problems like psoriasis, supports the liver, kidneys, pancreas, lungs and other organs and is regarded by many as a cancer preventive.

"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]

CAVEAT:  Some people have referred to Essiac tea as a drug.  However, ESSIAC IS NOT A "DRUG" NOR IS IT A "DIETARY SUPPLEMENT".  Essiac is a non-toxic tea.  Essiac does not disable or kill people like FDA-approved pharmaceutical drugs do.  Also, many people drink Essiac tea simply because it is a pleasant-tasting beverage.  Essiac is food.  Eating food and drinking tea is a human right.  No government agency has the right to interfere with that right.
