Is the Original 4 Herb Essiac Better than 8 Herb?
The original 4 herb essiac is a good product. However, it's an outdated formula. That formula was improved upon during research at the Brusch Medical Research Center from the years of 1959 through 1967. During that research, which was the most extensive research ever performed on essiac tea, Rene Caisse and Dr. Charles Brusch were able to determine the most effective formula.
That formula was determined to be one made with powdered herbs. It included eight herbs: the original four in the exact same ratios as before, but with four additional herbs designed to enhance the effectiveness of the original four. Because of the addition of the four herbs, the newer formula had a higher serving size of 3 oz. each time instead of 2. That way, the original four herbs would still be given in the same amount - just with the four additional herbs added on top.
This research is all documented in the book The Essiac Report by Richard Thomas, available on Amazon.
Hear directly from Dr. Charles Brusch on the effectiveness of essiac and the safety of essiac. Dr. Brusch passed the formula onto our family. You can see that document here.
