How to Make Essiac Tea: The 4-Ingredient Cancer-Fighting Tea

Every year, approximately 14 million people are diagnosed with cancer. This is often a combination of poor diet, stress, and lifestyle choices.

Fortunately, natural cancer cures are taking the nation by storm, with many people looking for alternative treatments.

Rene Caisse, a Canadian nurse, treated her patients with an inexpensive, natural cancer-fighting tea for fifty years (free of charge, too!). She had the support of many renowned scientists, respected doctors, and cancer survivors until she died in 1978.

The biggest respect should be given to the Ojibwe people of Canada (Turtle Island), who shared this secret recipe with her. After meeting with an Ojibwe medicine man, Rene discovered that she could cure her patients cancer with an herbal tea he prescribed. After taking his advice, the cancer patient was surprisingly still alive, thirty years later.

To this day, thousands of people swear by the results they get from this Essiac cancer-fighting tea recipe. It is a strong anti-cancer agent, possesses strong anti-inflammatory compounds, and strengthens the immune system. It also helps detoxify the body by acting as a natural liver cleanse and lymphatic-mover, and improves digestive function.
