Do You Need to Take a Break from Essiac?

taking a break essiac

Many herbal products come with the recommendation of taking a break from using it so that the body doesn't "get used to" it. In other cases with some of those products, if you don't take a break, your body could overdose on the active ingredient or ingredients.

However, essiac tea has none of these factors at play. You don't ever need to take a break from taking essiac!!



Essiac tea falls more into the category of a food than an herbal supplement. Many of the ingredients are in fact found in healthy diets, such as watercress and kelp. Like other healthy habits such as brushing your teeth, taking a break from Essiac isn't necessary or advised. 

You may have read some misinformation stating that it's best to take a break from Essiac tea on other websites, but that doesn't mean it's correct information. We can assure you that there is no reason at all to take a break. We personally have been taking it for over 20 years and many of our customers are in the same boat.

So you just keep on using your essiac tea as long as you would like to receive the benefits! There is no reason at all to take a break.


You can order your own supply of Genuine Essiac Right Here.

All orders come complete with the easy-to-follow instructions and suggested use. This tea is simple to make and takes just ten minutes to make a two-week supply.

  • I recently read online that essay tea should not be taken continually because it can damage the kidneys. Is there any truth to that. The reason I ask is that I have a bit of pain in the kidney area of my back. Thanks for a reply. Have you ever heard of such a thing:

  • Thank You for that clarification. I had read we needed to take a break; so we often go a couple of weeks in between brews. So we won’t be doing that any longer.
