Essiac Tea Preventive Dose: The preventive essiac tea dosage is 6 oz. of tea per day, and should be taken in two separate 3-oz. doses.
Administer the preventive dose for at least 6 months after your test results have returned to normal and/or your symptoms have resolved. Many people choose to continue the preventive dose indefinitely to maintain their good health. Essiac tea is abundant in many minerals and is a healthy part of the daily diet.
The length of time you should remain on a preventive dose of essiac will ultimately be your decision. At Discount-Essiac-Tea.com, our entire staff chooses to stay on essiac just about at all times to maintain our good health, and we encourage our friends and family to do the same. There is no need to take a break from the tea, so it's up to you to decide whether to continue on the maintenance dose or to stop using essiac you've achieved good health.
Try it and see. Go off essiac if you wish and compare how you feel to when you're on the tea and when you're off. If you feel better when you're on, or you're simply concerned about future health issues, you can stay on the tea forever!
Note: The dosages that we're suggesting are measured in ounces of brewed tea.
All doses should be taken on an empty stomach. Essiac was tested on people who had an empty stomach when they took it, and 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.
The main side effect we've had reported for some people when taking essiac tea preventive dose is looser than usual stools, or stools at a more frequent rate than usual. This is a good sign that your body is getting rid of what shouldn't be in there. However, if it is too uncomfortable for you, feel free to take less essiac than suggested. You can build your way up to tolerance.
Occasionally people will report unusual symptoms such as headache, feeling tired, feeling stimulated, or experiencing nausea. In most cases, these symptoms pass fairly quickly and are not a long term problem. Our suspicion is that most of the people reporting the issues have these responses as a matter of daily life and it happens to coincide when they start the essiac.
If you are concerned about any symptoms, certainly speak with your medical professional. We just want you to know that there is nothing in essiac that will inherently cause these responses, and if you have them, they should not be severe or long lasting.
