Essiac Tea For Children:  Dosing

Here is a guide to the correct essiac tea dosage for children. Sometimes the child might experience loose stools when first using essiac. This is a good thing as it is helping expel what should not be in there. However, if the effect is too uncomfortable, feel free to start with a smaller dose and after a few days or a week gently increase to tolerance. This side effect is normally short-lived and certainly should not be uncontrolled diarrhea--it is usually just an increased frequency in the need to use the bathroom.
