how to eat while using essiac tea

figuring out how to eat while using essiac doesn't have to make your head hurt!

Planning how to eat while using essiac tea can make some people afraid to even start. Some folks are concerned that, if they take Essiac on an empty stomach as recommended, they won’t have the opportunity to consume enough food, especially if they are underweight.

While it does take some planning, rest assured – it’s totally possible to have three meals AND three snacks a day while still following the essiac-on-an-empty-stomach rule. After seeing our sample schedule, you will never again have to try and figure out how to eat while using essiac tea.

recommended schedule for essiac tea

how to eat while using essiac

The schedule recommended when you wish to improve health is 3 oz. three times per day. Once you are 100% healthy then you can move to 3 oz. twice per day. 

There are still many opportunities to eat even when taking the essiac tea three times per day. You can have food 1 hour after essiac and 2 hours before your essiac.

For example, if you have Essiac at 6am, Essiac at noon, and Essiac at 6pm then your eating windows are 7am-10am, 1pm-4pm, and 7pm-11pm.


sample eating schedule.

  • 6:30am Wake up
  • 7:30am Take Essiac
  • 8:30am Have Breakfast, finish by 9am
  • 11:00am Take Essiac (you can bring it with you in a thermos with a few ice cubes if you are out and about).
  • 12:00pm Have Lunch
  • 3:00pm Snack
  • 6:00pm Have Dinner, finish by 7:00pm
  • 8:00pm Take Essiac
  • 9:00pm Snack

That is six meals/ you can have unlimited fruit or vegetable juice while taking essiac during the "empty stomach" time. Of course, if you don't require three meals and three snacks a day, it will be even easier to get your essiac in on an empty stomach.

What else can I have and have it be considered an "empty stomach" for essiac purposes? Glad you asked! You can also have black coffee, tea and water. Furthermore, you may take supplements and medications during the "empty stomach" time as well.
