What is Essiac?
Essiac is a blend of natural herbs, discovered by Rene Caisse in the 1920s, that has been reported in several cases to cure cancer as well as aiding many other ailments in illnesses. Over the course of her life Rene Caisse cured countless people of cancer who had been told there was nothing that medical science could do to save them.
The History of Essiac
Essiac was discovered by Rene Caisse in the 1920s. Rene Caisse was a nurse during this time and a chance encounter led her to what some describe as one of the most important discoveries of the 20th century. After examining a patient Rene had noticed a scar on one of her breasts, when asked about the scar the patient explained that she had survived cancer thanks to a herbal remedy that was shared with her by an Indian Medicine Man. After taking this herbal remedy the breast cancer had completely disappeared, despite having no intervention from medical science as she could not afford the surgery at the time; thirty years later she was still alive to tell the tale. A year or so later a conversation with a doctor lead to Rene being introduced to Sheep Sorrel, one of the herbs the patient had named in the herbal tea, with even the doctor claiming that there would be little cancer in the world if people were to use it.
A short time later, Nurse Caisse was informed of the terminal cancer diagnosis of her aunt, who had been given just six months to live. Nurse Caisse acquired the necessary ingredients and made a batch of this wonderous new potion, which eventually bcame known as Essiac, to be tested under the watchful eye of the doctor who delivered the diagnosis. Her aunt went on to live another 21 years with no reccurance of cancer.
Rene Caisse went on to treat hundreds, if not thousands of people during the course of her lifetime, including her own mother whom, despite given merely days to live as a diagnosis from liver cancer, went on to live for another 18 years. There were, of course, many trials to overcome with offering such an incredibly powerful cancer treatment with Essiac, but Nurse Caisse overcame all of her challenges and ran the whole operation as non-profit until she was no longer allowed to treat patients due to doctors refusing to make the diagnosis of cancer – meaning Rene Caisse could not treat them with her Essiac formula. During her life time she gained enormous support from not only patients but also doctors, whose watchful eyes ensured the patients were being treated appropriately – proving that even the medical profession was intrigued by this miraculous discovery.
There is a great deal of detail on Rene Caisse’s story on other websites, my aim is not to replicate that level of detail here but to give and insight and overview to who Nurse Rene Caisse was and how significant her work was with the treatment of cancer.

What else does Essiac do?
Essiac doesn’t have to be taken if you’re hoping to contain the growth of cancer, it’s also taken across the world to aid diabetes, lower blood pressure and work as an anti-inflammatory. It is widely regarded as being very good at detoxifying the body, as well as aiding with joints and bones that need a little lubrication or even an immune system that needs a little boost. Essiac is perhaps best known as being very effective against cancer cells, but even those in good health can feel the benefits from Essiac as it is an excellent cleaner of the body and blood.
So what is Essiac made of?
Essiac is a herbal formula, nothing more. It contains – as you’d expect – natural ingredients that have been provided to us by the Earth. I am a great believer that all we will ever need is already here in one form or another, and Essiac is no exception. The ingredients are:
- Sheep Sorrel – The key active ingredient if you want to use Essiac to treat cancer. Contains antioxidants and works as a diuretic.
- Burdock Root – Blood purifier, releases toxins through sweat. Supports kidneys and liver and shows anti-tumour qualities.
- Slippery Elm – Anti inflammatory, good for assisting diarrhea and urinary problems.
- Turkey Rhubarb – Also an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and good for easing constipation.
These are the four ingredients that Rene Caisse managed to perfect the formula to, and these are the four that any true Essiac formula must include. Sheep Sorrel is regarded as the main ingredient of Essiac’s power and is a powerful antioxidant. If you are looking into Essiac in hopes of treating cancer with it then you must make sure your formula includes the sheep sorrel root. Too many formulas are reported to include just the leaves and the stem as including the roots will destroy the plant, meaning it can’t be harvested again until it is regrown. This will be reflected in the price of your potion, but don’t assume that the pricey stuff is going to be what you need – or that the less expensive options are not. Remember, root is key for the potion to be effective – in the same way that hemp oil must include THC to be effective against cancer.
So where can I get Essiac?
Good question. Essiac is readily available from a lot of retailers online such as Amazon but it is not easy to establish the exact formula in products so be careful when you order. Amazon however is an excellent place to pick up a book on Essiac, it’s history and even the story of Rene Caisse if you’re looking for some further reading. Again, it’s important to make sure that you get the right mix for what you need, I would do some extensive research before you buy and even consider making your own (see the video below). Essiac is available as either a concentrated potion, as tablets, as capsules or as Essiac Tea. Essiac Tea is the most popular form of using Essiac; I would advise against ordering Essiac as tablets as the processing of the herb to get it into tablet for can reduce the potency of the herb whereas capsules and tea are fine.
If you are going to order Essiac I would recommend you try Clouds Trust. They are a small UK based charity who send Essiac out all over the world. They are completely public funded and a donation is optional (a suggested donation is £10 which will cover a month’s supply of Essiac Tea as well as detailed instructions on how to prepare and use it). They are not in the game to make a load of cash from the product, and having ordered from them personally I would seriously consider approaching them for advice, I spoke to a lady named Felicity who was very helpful and fully prepared to offer advice and answer any questions I had.
Make your own Essiac
It’s worth remembering that you can always try making your own Essiac tea, there is an excellent video on youtube that will tell you everything you need to know on making your own. You can watch it below:
Please Note – Essiac is a powerful cleanser of the body. If you are hoping to use Essiac to treat cancer then you need to make sure that your potion contains everything it needs to, with a good concentration of Sheep Sorrel roots and not just the leaves and stem. It is believed to be very powerful and effective against cancer but we do not guarantee results from anything (please see our disclaimer page), in the same way that we do not guarantee results from medical science. Everyone is different. Listen to your own body, it’s an incredible tool and a wonderful gift from the Earth, and you must act upon our own intuition.
