There are so many benefits in taking Essiac Tea but here are just 5.
1. Purifies the blood. 2. Increases red cell production and prevents them from rupturing. 3. Increases the body's ability to utilize oxygen by raising the oxygen level in the cells. 4. Maintains the balance between potassium and sodium within the body so that the fluid inside and outside each cell is regulated; in this way, cells are well nourished with nutrients and are also cleansed properly. 5. Converts calcium and potassium oxalates into a harmless form by making them solvent in the urine. This regulates the amount of oxalic acid delivered to the kidneys, thus reducing the risk of stone formation in the gall bladder, kidneys and urinary tract.
Essiac tea's primary actions are to remove heavy metals, detoxify the body, restore energy levels, and rebuild the immune system, all act to restore the body to a level to where it is able to better defeat the illness using it's own resources. In other words, essiac rebuilds the immune system and improves the illness-defeating ability of the body so that the body can rid itself of the illness.
It Works Synergistically
Essiac is blend of eight herbs in particular ratios, all of which are known to have immune-boosting, gentle detox and health-promoting properties. When taken together in the form of a brewed tea, essiac is believed to strengthen the immune system and purify the body of toxins. As a result, the body becomes more capable of fighting off illness and disease using its own resources - just as nature intended!
Essiac contains eight herbs. They are: blessed thistle, burdock root, kelp, sheep sorrel (including the root), slippery elm bark, red clover, turkish rhubarb root, and watercress. The formula is a synergistic one, meaning that the combination of the herbs in specific ratios creates a result beyond what you'd get when you just take the herbs one by one. The herbs work together in a way that increases the effects.
If you encounter four herb essiac, please be aware that it's an outdated formula that was since improved upon by Rene Caisse. Rene Caisse learned through her research at the Brusch Medical Research Center from 1959 through 1967 that the eight herb tea worked better and that was her final suggestion on what essiac formula was best to use moving forward.
