The tea that makes tumors shrink and cancer cells disappear. It has been used successfully for 50 years. Here is how to prepare it

Essiac is already well known for its ability to detoxify the body and boost immunity. Regular consumption of Essiac tea is linked to a reduction in the frequency of colds and flu as well as improvement in general health. However, did you know that this tea can even cure cancer?

The ingredients and recipe came originally from an Ojibway Native American medicine man in remote northern Canada and the tea is known as the “Ojibwa Tea of Life.”

It was first introduced in Canada during the 1920s by Rene Caisse, a nurse who used it to treat many terminal cancer patients from her clinic in the small Canadian village of Bracebridge.

Essiac tea is made of four herbs which grow in the wilderness of Ontario: Slippery Elm Inner Bark, Indian Rhubarb Root, Sheep Sorrel and Burdock Root.

As mentioned in the very beginning, Essiac tea detoxifies the body, boosts immunity, and attacks cancer cells with its potent antioxidants. Burdock root, one of the key ingredients in this tea, contains anti-oxidant anthraquinone which has been found to prevent tumor growth by reducing cell mutations.  A few studies on this topic have shown that Essiac tea helped patients see a reduction in the severity of symptoms. The patients suffered from various forms of cancer, such as the uterus, prostate, skin, and bowel cancer.

As reported by Gale Encyclopedia of Alternative Medicine, “Sheep sorrel is gaining popularity as an anticancer agent and for its ability to break down and reduce tumors. A poultice made from sheep sorrel is reported to have a drawing effect on tumors or cysts. Sheep sorrel’s rutins and polysaccharides act to prevent tumors and other cancerous growths. The beta carotene contained in sheep sorrel acts as an antioxidant, increasing the production of white blood cells and T-cells (cancer-killing cells). The chlorophyll in sheep sorrel acts to purify the liver, promote regeneration of tissue, decrease swelling of the pancreas, strengthen cell walls, cleanse the blood, and may increase resistance to x rays. The oxalic acid also has antitumor and anticancer properties. Sheep sorrel has also been used to treat the side effects of chemotherapy.”

According to a 2004 study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, Essiac may inhibit prostate tumor cell growth.
