The Paulhus family created this website as a way for people to obtain high-quality, genuine Essiac Tea at an affordable cost. Everyone in the household uses essiac themselves - Gina takes it for arthritis and for her autoimmune condition. Bryan takes it for Prostate health, and our cat Maggie takes it for her Stage 4 Lymphoma, which is now in remission!
Bryan's father used essiac and only essiac for his Stage 3 Lung Cancer. He tried chemotherapy but didn't have very good results. After using the tea for just over six months, he went back to his doctor and the cancer was gone! Bryan's father didn't change his diet (which unfortunately was super unhealthy) or do anything else besides take essiac.
***We use the entire sheep sorrel plant, including the roots, in our formula! It's 20% root.***
Bryan first started making essiac over thirty years ago as "just another job." His interest was piqued however as he witnessed firsthand many seemingly miraculous recoveries and was impressed with what he saw. He's worked with essiac every since.
Bryan now provides full-time customer service and oversees our other staff members. He is the one who will answer the phone if you call. He has spoken extensively with many cancer patients and with many diabetics who use essiac, as well as other individuals who use essiac as they seek to improve health. He can help pass their experiences onto you. Bryan learned all about essiac while working alongside Dr. Charles Brusch, Rene Caisse's research assistant in the 1980s. Read more about the research on essiac tea that Rene Caisse and Dr. Charles Brusch performed here. You can read more about Bryan on LinkedIn.

She has her Bachelor's degree from UMass - Lowell and is a two-time author. Her two books are Mind Over Fatter and Change Your Weighs. Gina owns a company called Home Bodies in-home fitness training and supplements and has thoroughly researched and studied essiac tea. Gina's lifelong interest in health and fitness making working with essiac a natural fit for her.
Bryan introduced Gina to essiac tea as a general health supplement back when they were dating (and now they just celebrated their 17 year Anniversary)! Gina experienced greatly improved health after initiating use of essiac tea including going into remission from SLE (Lupus) that affected her digestive tract to the point where she had to have portions of her intestines removed. She also saw a great improvement of her circulation disorder (similar to Raynaud's) that no doctors had been able to figure out. She was of course very interested in learning more about essiac tea and figuring out how she could help out with the business. Gina wrote all of the articles on this site and also produced many of the videos. She is the one who writes back when you send an email. See more about Gina on LinkedIn.
It is important to us that we stand behind our product with our own livelihood. We offer a Money-Back Guarantee to help prove to you just how much we believe in our essiac. It's highly unusual for someone to be dissatisfied with the product - but in the event that your health doesn't improve when using the product as directed for six months you'll get your money back. It's the least we can do in that instance. Read more about Our Guarantee here.
We understand all to well what it is like to be sick, or to have a sick family member and feel taken advantage of by alternative choices that don't really work. Bryan's brother Brent Paulhus suffered from ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) for many years. We blew through tens of thousands of dollars looking for a way to help him with his condition. We never found anything that actually helped (unfortunately, essiac doesn't do much for ALS).
It was Brent's dying wish that we made sure we never, ever take advantage of another family in need due to a health crisis. We honor that wish by providing the best essiac money can buy at the best possible price, and even giving essiac away for free or for reduced cost if someone has a dire financial need. All you have to do is ask. We also carry a 110% Price Match Guarantee to make sure you never overpay. You can also see for yourself how buying essiac from us is a much better deal than buying on Amazon!
We are available by phone, email and Facebook Messenger 7 days per week. We are passionate about helping each person one by one and will take the time with you that you need. We understand that choosing between herbal teas can be a confusing proposition - and that sometimes it seems there are no clear answers. We are here to support you and guide you so that you can make the absolute best decision for you, your family and your health. Reach out anytime by clicking here.

Dominic covers the phone on occasion so that Bryan can take a much-deserved vacation. Dominic has been with us almost since the company began, having started with us in 2006.

He began working with us in 2019.
