Esiac capsules are a more convenient way to take Esiac rather than spend hours preparing the tea.
By the way, I removed the other ‘S’ from the title Essiac because some company seems to have a copyright issue over it! You can be assured that this is the original recipe that Rene Caisse formulated.
- Supports immunity.
- Helps detoxify the body systems.
- Provides a convenient capsule form of Essiac Tea.
Rene Caisse was head nurse at the Sisters of Providence Hospital in Ontario, Canada. Ms. Caisse claimed that in 1922 the formula had been given to her by a patient whose breast cancer had been cured by taking a traditional native American herbal remedy given to her by an Ojibwa herbalist. After witnessing its curative effects on a member of her own family, Rene Caisse developed her Essiac formula as an herbal cancer treatment. Essiac is Caisse spelt backwards.
The ingredients in Esiac capsules may help support immunity, detoxification of the body and purification of the blood. Sheep sorrel is viewed as detoxifying because it has pronounced laxative effects and benefits the gastrointestinal tract. It has several reported health benefits, including treatment for cancer, fever, generalized inflammation, and scurvy. Its ability to help treat these conditions stems from sorrel’s abundance of disease-fighting molecules, such as vitamins (A, B complex, C, D, E, and K) and natural molecules used to make many drugs, including anti-cancer medications.
Burdock is a cleansing and detoxifying herb.
Some studies suggest that Turkey rhubarb may exert powerful immuno-supportive effects, especially with regard to integrity of cellular membranes. Slippery elm is a great help for support of the mucous linings. It can help maintain healthy mucous surfaces while drawing toxins away.
