we will teach you how to deal with timing when you are taking essiac with supplements or medications

It can be tricky to figure out how to take Essiac with supplements or medications that state they must be taken on an empty stomach. The good news is that you can take your Essiac tea right along with supplements or medications. There is no need to space them apart. This makes life a lot easier when you have a number of things you need to take on an empty stomach. 

So, if you are instructed to take a medication on an empty stomach, know that you can wash it down with Essiac - Essiac is like water in that it counts as an empty stomach. On the same token, if you are taking a supplement that says on the bottle to take it on an empty stomach, you can take that right with the Essiac, too. In other words, all of the empty stomach things can be taken at once. Since Essiac tea isn't considered food, it makes it easy to adhere to empty stomach protocols with other things. So taking Essiac with supplements or medications is a snap!

learn why it's so important to take essiac tea on an empty stomach

Essiac must be absorbed fully into the intenstines without being mixed with food in order to provide you with the best possible results. Food interferes with the completion of the absorption and would wisk away some of the beneficial compounds before they had a chance to access the areas in your body they need to.

This means you will need to wait 2 hours after a meal to have your Essiac tea. You'll also need to wait 1 hour after your Essiac tea to eat again. Most people have Essiac upon first waking, and then they eat breakfast an hour later. Most people then set a timer for 2 hours after lunch to have their second serving of Essiac, and then they take their third serving right before bed (2 hours after dinner or a snack). 

Feel free to find a schedule of your choosing, however be sure to space each Essiac serving at least 4 hours apart for best results. Taking your Essiac tea sometime in the morning, sometime in the afternoon, and sometime in the evening tends to work well. Some of our customers keep Essiac tea by their bed and if they wake up in the middle of the night they will take a serving. That works perfectly fine, too.

If you are a grazer, you can find a sample schedule of how you can eat six times a day and still take your Essiac tea on an empty stomach here.

essiac tea is a commitment worth making

We understand that taking Essiac tea as directed requires some effort and planning. Like with most things in life, at first it might feel challenging, but as you adopt Essiac tea into your regular routine you will find that it doesn't take much thought or effort at all.

If you are out and about during the day, taking Essiac with you in a thermos with a few ice cubes is a great hack. And if you take Essiac at the end of the day, it will serve as an easy way to cut down on late night snacking, which probably will be beneficial for your health, too. If you will be traveling, you can check out our one cup at a time method, which should be reserved only for special occasions since it is not as effective as the regular way to brew Essiac tea.

Research shows it takes 4.5 to 6 months for Essiac to work for many people. This is because it takes time to clean out the body which will then allow the body to return to it's natural, pristine state - just as nature intended. In this state, your body is far more capable of healing itself. And that's what we all want, because it provides a way to heal without side effects.

Be sure to give Essiac the time it needs to work. However, you will be rewarded for your commitment with our 6 Month Results Guarantee. If you don't experience improved health by the 6 month mark, you don't pay! It's that simple. Learn more about Our Guarantee.
