From Lupus to Vibrant Health - My Essiac Tea Journey

I know what it’s like to have my health failing me and to feel desperate, helpless and alone. When you have exhausted option after option and you no longer know where to turn, you’ll try anything. And for me, that anything was Essiac tea.

My diagnosis was SLE, or Lupus. I was 26 and after going in and out of hospitals, doctor’s offices and emergency rooms for a few years, getting the diagnosis was both a relief and a nightmare. I was relieved someone knew what was wrong with me, but it was a nightmare because I knew the condition was very difficult to manage and, because it was autoimmune, the approach would not necessarily be easy or straightforward. Doctors told me not to expect a cure, but to accept managing the symptoms as a win. They warned me that it would not be easy and that I would have to accept that I wouldn’t always feel well, and that’s just the way it would be. They told me that I was not the sickest one could be with Lupus, and for that I should be grateful.

I agreed – I saw how sick some of the other patients in the rheumatology office were. However, I was pretty sick with Lupus myself. I had endured multiple rounds in the ER, some of them involving overnight stays, for severe abdominal pain. I saw some world-renowned gastroenterologists in Boston who had absolutely nothing to offer me. It appeared that the autoimmune condition was attacking my intestines the most. I had a surgery for an emergency bowel obstruction, and then a second one. My entire body broke out into an angry red rash when I ate any food that was warm, and some foods that were cold. I became afraid to eat not knowing what would and would not affect my skin. I had joint pain that prescription pain medicine couldn’t take away. And I was 26.

Luckily for me, my boyfriend at the time worked with this product called Essiac tea. He explained that most people take it when they have Cancer, but that it had other uses. Cancer ran in my family, so I was interested in preventive. However, I asked him if he thought it would help me. He said it was worth a try, and that it couldn’t hurt me! I decided to try it. After all, I was at the end of my rope and doctor after doctor had come up with nothing for me.

I began taking Essiac tea at 3 oz. three times per day. I became more regular pretty quickly, but I was still battling with abdominal pain. The Lupus rashes began to go away after a couple of months, and after about the four-month mark my abdominal pain had become quite a bit better. Things weren’t perfect, but there was an obvious improvement. The joint pain lifted and I was able to resume strength training and impact activities. I was able to go off my Plaquenil, a prescription designed to treat autoimmune (with mixed results).

At the same time as I started Essiac tea, I recommitted to my autoimmune diet, which was to avoid dairy and gluten. I am sure that helped quite a bit, too. My food cravings went down quite a bit after starting Essiac tea, which I think had a lot to do with the improvement in blood sugar control I got from the tea.

I am now 42 and my autoimmune condition has not been a problem for years and years. The doctor I was seeing for Lupus even told me I didn't need to check in anymore.

Essiac tea isn’t always effective for autoimmune conditions of every kind and for every person, so it’s hard to prove it was the Essiac that did it. However, looking back at everything I tried and everything I have been through - when I started Essiac that was when everything began to turn around for me.

I take it daily (at the maintenance level now of 3 oz. twice per day) because I want to keep the benefits I have received, and I continue to use it as a Cancer preventive. My aunt had Breast Cancer in her 30s, and it was drilled into me at a young age that the family history could leave me susceptible. With Essiac on my side I don’t have fear of developing Cancer anymore, and that is huge.

That boyfriend I mentioned? He’s the Bryan you know from calling in with your Essiac questions. :) We ended up getting married and joined forces working with Essiac tea together. Now I can enjoy many activities with him including going to the beach, hiking and traveling. These are things I would have never been able to do without Essiac tea.

Since Essiac tea is so simple to make and take, and it costs less than $1 per day to use, why not try it? It’s like an insurance policy for your health, even if you aren’t sick. I recommend it to all my friends and family. My dad is currently taking it for Heart Disease. My husband took it for his PSA levels, and my father-in-law took it for his Stage 3 Lung Cancer. All of them achieved remission while using Essiac tea. We have a friend who used it successfully with Prostate Cancer and another who used it successfully for Lung Cancer. With a track record like this, and research behind it that you can see in the book The Essiac Report by Richard Thomas, Essiac is an obvious choice for anyone who wants to preserve or improve their health in a simple, safe and affordable way.

It's critical that you purchase Essiac tea that is the genuine formula, the same one that Rene Caisse used and endorsed. Most of the brands out there are overpriced and are not the correct formula. Genuine Essiac is a brand you can trust, and you know that because we are the only Essiac tea company out there that offers a Money Back Guarantee. If your health doesn’t improve, you don’t pay!

Be careful when comparing price with companies who sell only a couple of weeks' worth at a time - we sell enough to last months at a time which saves you a ton of money.

It costs less than $1 per day to use our Essiac - the best price you'll find anywhere!

  • Libby,

    You may take Essiac tea alongside any supplements or medications.


  • Essiac tea is safe to take by women who are breastfeeding or pregnant.

  • Is Essiac safe to take for women who are pregnant?

  • I take my morning vitamins, supplements and prescription pills with some black coffee right after I drink my first cup of essiac. Is this ok? Or should I wait one hour before taking my pills? My vitamins are moranga leaves crushed into capsules.
