The new Swanson-certified Organic Essiac is an improved Ojibwe Sister Caisse tea used for personal use. Developed in the 1960s with Dr. Charles Brush in his laboratories in Cambridge, MA, this tea contains an original recipe of four herbs passed down to him by the shamans of the Ojibwe tribe, plus four other powerful synergistic herbs. Each certified organic Essiac tea package contains enough to produce 36 ounces of tea liquid.
Preparation: Boil 4 1/2 cups (36 fl oz) of water in a stainless steel, glass or enamel pot. Do not use aluminum. Add one packet (1 oz) of Essiac tea to boiling water and cook for approximately 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and let stand in the pan for 12 hours. Finally, stir and pour into a 1 liter glass jar. Store in the refrigerator for no longer than three weeks.
Suggested use: Shake the bottle before use. As a dietary supplement, drink 4 tablespoons (2 fl oz) of prepared tea twice a day on an empty stomach. For aggressive use, drink 6 tablespoons (3 fl oz) three times a day on an empty stomach. Do not exceed 18 tablespoons (9 fl oz) per day.
WARNING: Do not take this product if you are pregnant, or breastfeeding, or if you have or have diarrhea, abdominal pain, or intestinal obstruction. Talk to your doctor before use if you are taking prescription drugs or if you have ulcers or kidney stones.
