Essiac Tea For Children: Dosing guide

Here is a guide for you to find the correct essiac tea dosage for a child. 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 any longer!

However, if the effect is too uncomfortable, feel free to start with a smaller dose. After a few days increase the dose 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.
