Essiac Tea Aggressive Dose/improvement of health dose Instructions

This is the amount recommended by Rene Caisse based upon her research. Take 9 oz. per day in three separate 3 oz. doses. If you have been given less than six months to live, we suggest you use the aggressive dose plus.

Essiac tea aggressive dose is the recommended essiac tea regimen if you wish to improve your health.

how long should i take the essiac tea aggressive dose/improvement of health dose?

You should remain on the aggressive dosage (improvement of health dosage) program for a minimum of six months, or until your test results return to normal. If your test results have returned to normal, you may reduce your essiac tea to the maintenance dosage of 3 oz. just twice per day. If at any point your symptoms return, we recommend that you return to the aggressive dosage/improvement of health dosage of three 3 oz. doses per day. It's OK to remain on this dose indefinitely. There is no need to take a break.

what if i'm still sick after taking Essiac for six months?

If the original condition persists even while you take essiac tea, continue on the aggressive dosage/improvement of health dosage until your condition improves and you're satisfied with the results. Keep in mind that many people would have kept getting worse and worse with no intervention, so sometimes just holding steady with your health (not slipping) is a victory in and of itself. Don't lose hope! Six months is a minimum length of time. 

essiac aggressive doseThe dosage suggestions we provide are the very same that Rene Caisse recommended.

what if i get worse while taking the essiac?

It's not uncommon for people to get worse before they begin to get better, as things take time to turn around. Think about when you take an aspirin because you have a headache. It might take about 30 minutes for the aspirin to kick in. Your headache might get worse for the initial 20 minutes before the aspirin kicked in. That doesn't mean it won't work - it just hadn't started working so that you can feel the difference...yet.

The essiac works on the same idea - just stretched over a longer period of time. The 30 minute length you need to wait for aspirin to kick in is equivalent to the 6 months n the case of essiac. That means you need to wait the 6 months before assuming it didn't work. Most begin experiencing benefit between the 4 1/2 and 6 month mark.

Note: The dosages that we're suggesting are measured in ounces of brewed tea.

All doses should be taken on an empty stomach. This will ensure maximum absorption of your essiac tea dosage. This means you should avoid eating for 2 hours before and 1 hour after taking essiac for best results.*
