If You Don't Follow the Empty Stomach Rules, Your Essiac Results Will Be Less than Optimal

If you are wondering about whether or not you need to follow a special diet while using Essiac Tea, the answer is no. You can learn more about diet suggestions and Essiac tea by clicking here. However, there are still some tips on how to eat while using Essiac that you should know about.

To start with, I want to emphasize that eating healthy is always a good idea! Keeping a low sugar diet as well as a diet abundant in organic fruits and vegetables and healthy fats is a great idea and very smart.

At the same time, we have heard countless success stories from folks who didn't change their diet at all and still had an amazing outcome. There is no special diet required when you follow Essiac Tea, other than that you need to take Essiac Tea on an empty stomach.

What Do You Mean By an Empty Stomach?

In terms of Essiac, this means no food 2 hours before Essiac and no food until 1 hour after you've taken Essiac. For an example, if you finish lunch at 12pm you could have Essiac if you wanted to at 2pm (that way you had lunch 2 hours before), and then you could have a snack at 3pm (one hour after Essiac).

Worried you won't get enough to eat? Don't be! This sample schedule will show how you can get three meals and three snacks if you want to and still pull it off. It will take a little bit of discipline, but it's certainly achievable. Once you settle into a routine, it's a snap.

Sample Eating Schedule When Using Essiac Tea

6:30am Wake up, Take Essiac

7:30am Have Breakfast, finish by 8am

10:00am Snack

12:00pm Take Essiac

1:00pm Have Lunch, finish by 1:30pm

3:00pm Snack

5:00pm Have Dinner, finish by 5:30pm

7:30pm Take Essiac

8:30pm Snack

There are a lot of other ways you can break it down, but this is a sample of how to eat while using Essiac to give you an example day.

Using an Alarm System

It might be easier if you set an alarm to go off 1 hour after you take Essiac. Once it goes off you can eat again. Then you could set an alart for 2 hours after you complete eating. When it goes off you can take Essiac again. This way, you will be able to follow the guidelines without a second thought.

What You Can Have During the "Empty Stomach" Time

You are permitted to have black coffee, plain tea, herbal tea, supplements, and medications during the "empty stomach" time, as well as as much water as you like. You can even add natural fruit and/or vegetable juice to your Essiac if you prefer! None of that affects the results from the tea.

  • Hi, I hope you’re well. I have 6 small meals per day, 3 are food and 3 are smoothies (combo of spinach/kale/chard/fruit) and I take pancreatic enzymes about an hour before 3 of those meals. I have these meals at 2-2.5 hour intervals. Can I take the essiac tea when I take the pancreatic enzymes? Please advise and thank you kindly.

  • You may take amino acids half an hour before essiac or one hour after if it’s liquid or capsule. If it’s in a bar form then wait 1 hour before and after.

  • Hi Vernon, some people take up to 6 oz. at a time, but most take just 3 oz. at a time. It’s a pretty small cup in the picture, but it might not be exactly 3 oz. shown.


  • Thank you for Essiac! I’m On my second month. I’m Trying to shrink a pituitary tumor. My question is: when can I take my amino acid supplements?

  • Gina,
    I noticed the picture of someone holding what looks like a GLASS of Essiac Tea attached to the article titled “How to eat while using Essiac”. From Feburary 9th, 2022.

    Do people drink that much in one setting? Is there added benefit to drinking a cup or more per settin? Or rather 3 cups per day?

    That glass looks like its way more than 3 oz.
