i haven't used it, but i know someone who has... my understanding is that it's primarily for cancer patients - that's what my friend was. if i remember the formula correctly, it does have a lot of blood purifiers in it, so that would make sense.... don't know if that helps or not......

eek! when i hear the words essiac tea i always immediately think cancer. sensitive subject for me.

i gave it to my mom when we found out that she had cancer. i have read a lot about it and have some info on it somewhere around here, i'll look for it. very interesting stuff.

as far as how it works though, i believe it made a difference. unfortunately it seems to work against some of the cancer drugs commonly prescribed. i can't recall exactly which ones but there was some debate over whether she should keep drinking the tea or taking the drugs. she ended up taking the tea. i would say that she had a relatively painless death. tea or not? who knows, but for my part i would take the natural route any day. and it seems that it would be good for you no matter if you happened to be sick or not.

i'll post more when i find the literature.

not just for terminal illness. However, the brand sold as essiac is only half the formula, the four strong cleansing herbs. The other four ingredients are more nourishing, to help put nutrients back in the body. Flora sells the complete formula under the name FlorEssence. I know people who've tried both & found the full formula to taste better & to be generally gentler on the body.
Here is more info http://www.florahealth.com/flora/hom...cts/R68090.asp and if you want a brief history & info on each ingredient http://www.florahealth.com/Flora/Hom...68090_More.asp

and good luck with whatever ails you, if you want more detailed info, you can post here or pm me.

you probably don't wanna be taking this while nursing, it helps to pull toxins out of the body's storage areas & gets them into the bloodstream, where they can readily be passed into your milk.
