How Long Should I Take Essiac?

One of the most common questions we get is, "How long should I take essiac?" This article explains all you need to know. While it is an individual decision, there are certain guidelines that you will surely find helpful.

how long should I take essiacFor most, taking essiac for at least six months is the way to go.

In general, essiac takes six months of consistent usage to show full results. That doesn't mean it won't start helping right away - it just means that it can take up to six months to realize the full benefit. Therefore, you should not judge how well essiac is working until you've taken it as directed for the full six months. It would be so sad to give up right before the huge payoff!

The basic rule of thumb is that you should take essiac at the aggressive dose as long as you want your health to improve. After you have achieved your desired level of health, we still recommend you finish off your six-month time frame. After six months, if you simply want to maintain your health, we recommend that you continue to take the maintenance dose of 3 oz. twice per day. If you want to improve your health after the six-month time period, continue on at the aggressive dose.

Sometimes people take essiac just as a quick detox. In that case, you might only need to take essiac for 2-4 weeks, but we have not been able to substantiate that such a short usage length has any lasting benefit. Essiac is a nice detox because you can continue your usual meals and work while doing it (it's very gentle).

If you decide to go off essiac and maintain your good health, congratulations! If you go off essiac and find that your health is beginning to suffer, try going back on the essiac.

There are no side effects or problems with remaining on essiac for the long-term. Many people take essiac every day of their lives and there is no issue at all. Some decide to take it for 9 out of the 12 months of the year, and that can work well, too.

If you are undergoing chemo or radiation, we recommend staying on the essiac at least until your treatments are done. The essiac will help your body tolerate the side effects from the treatments.
