Ever wondered if you need to take an essiac tea break? The short answer is "No."
We are aware that many herbal products come with the recommendation of taking a break from using it so that the body doesn't "get used to" it. In some cases with products like these, if you don't take a break, your body could overdose on the ingredients and it's possible the substance could cause more harm than good.
You may, however, wish to change the amount of essiac you take over time. When you first begin using essiac, we recommend that you take it 3 oz. three times per day for at least six months. After the six months have passed, you can choose between the aggressive dose or the maintenance dose.
The aggressive dose is appropriate if you are interested in improving your health. You can take the Aggressive PLUS dose if you have been given a terminal diagnosis. The maintenance dose is for - you guessed it - those who wish to simply maintain their health (stay the same).
If you wish to stay on the aggressive dose even if your goal is simply to maintain health, that's certainly fine as well!
Hopefully you now are reassured that there is no need to take an essiac tea break, and that taking a break would likely be a mistake. If you have any other questions for us about the need for an essiac tea break, reach out and ask.
