Herbal Tea made famous by Rene Caisse (aka Essiac).
Rene Caisse brought an ancient remedy into modern use
The original formula is thought to come from the native Canadian Ojibway Indians. The nurse Rene Caisse learned of the natural herbal formula directly from these indigenous people. Rene Caisse had great feeling for suffering people. As a caring and compassionate nurse she desired her legacy to reflect her life's endeavour to make this herbal tea available to any who might need it. Rene treated people at her clinic for over 40 years without charge.
The four main herbs that make up the tea are Burdock Root 84g, Slippery Elm 16g, Sheep Sorrel 64g and Rhubarb Root 4g.
Instructions for preparation:
You will make 1/3 pack at a time.
The powders (Slippery Elm and Rhubarb Root) are packed separately to ensure that your herbs are in the exact proportions for the formula.
Open the powder pack to let air in, close again and shake the pack to ensure an even mix of both powders. There is 21g of powder in total, so place 7g in a glass or ceramic bowl.
There is 150g of dried bark/herb mix. Add 50g to the bowl with the powder.
Boil 4 pints (2.27 litre) of filtered water in a pan (not aluminium, preferably earthenware or heat-proof glass).
Remove from heat and stir, scraping herbs from side of pan back into the liquid.
Cover and let stand for 6 hours.
Stir well, replace lid, and leave for a minimum of 6 hours.
Stir, cover, and bring to the boil. Remove from heat and stand for 5 minutes before straining.
Funnel liquid into brown sterile glass bottles with screw tops and seal immediately. Once cool keep refrigerated. This amount will fill just under 3 x 500ml amber bottles.
Directions for use:
Heat 4 tablespoons (57ml) of filtered water to boiling.
Add 4 tablespoons of the decoction.
Sip slowly on an empty stomach - no food for 2 hours before dose and 1 hour afterwards.
Pack contains approximately one month's supply if used daily.
