Which is Really Better – Four Herb or Eight Herb Essiac?
The reality is that the four herb formula is an outdated formula that didn’t prove to be most effective in Rene Caisse’s research. Like many things in life, the original isn’t always the best.
With new information and additional research, most products are changed and improved over time - and essiac is no different!
Those in-the-know always choose eight herb essiac. You see, eight herb essiac contains the same four herbs in the same ratios as the four herb tea, but it also contains four additional herbs that were added during the time when Rene Caisse and Dr. Charles Brusch studied this formula from the years of 1959-1967. This work was performed at the Brusch Medical Research Center in Cambridge, MA, which is right near where our headquarters is located today.
The other important thing is know is that Rene Caisse has always used powderd herbs for her eight essiac formula. Yes, powdered herbs are messier than whole herbs, and yes they are more expensive, but Rene Caisse knew that they were the best form of essiac herbs to use. The Ojibway Medicine Man that she learned the formula from made it clear she was to use powdered herbs, just as they did. They used grinding stones to pulverize their herbs. While today we have slightly more modern equipment, we are still using the very same powdered herbs that the Ojibway did when they made this formula.

You may wonders why our serving size of eight herb essiac is higher than the four herb brands. It's an easy explanation! Since our formula contains the same four herbs as theirs plus four additional herbs, we have to have a higher serving size in order to leave the original four herbs at the original serving size and still have room for the additional herbs. Many four herb blends list 2 oz. as the serving size, and ours is 3 oz. The extra oz. is to account for the extra herbs! It's as simple as that.
Did you know that the four herb essiac is actually cheaper to make? In spite of that, we never have chosen to sell it, even when customers ask for it. We simply will not sell anything that we don't believe in, and we know the eight herb formula is superior. We use it for ourselves and for our family. We refuse to sell anything that is sub-par.
The eight herb formula was never released to the public, which is why it's harder to find. Our family was given the formula because Rene Caisse and Dr. Charles Brusch trusted that we would continue their mission of making essiac tea available to all at an affordable price. They also trusted that we would not alter the formula or method of preparation in any way. Here is the document showing our connection to Rene Caisse and Dr. Brusch.
