The Truth About Essiac

Rene Caisse and her Herbal Cancer Treatment ESSIAC

 

On a fateful day in 1922 Canadian nurse Rene Caisse happened to notice some scar tissue on the breast of an elderly English woman.  The woman said that doctors had diagnosed her with breast cancer years before.  However, the woman didn’t want to risk surgery nor did she have the money for it.

The English woman had met an old Indian medicine man in the 1890s who told her that he could cure her cancer with an herbal tea.  The woman took the medicine man’s advice, and consequently she was still alive nearly thirty years later to pass on this herbal remedy to Nurse Caisse.

About a year later, Rene Caisse was walking beside a retired doctor who pointed to a common weed and stated:  “Nurse Caisse, if people would use this weed there would be little cancer in the world.”  Rene later stated:  “He told me the name of the plant.  It was one of the herbs my patient named as an ingredient of the Indian medicine man’s tea!”  The “weed” was sheep sorrel.  In a 1974 letter to Dr. Chester Stock of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Institute, Rene Caisse stated:  “Who in the world would ever think to find a solution to cancer in a common meadow?”

In 1924 she decided to test the tea on her aunt who had cancer of the stomach and was given about six months to live.  Her aunt lived for another 21 years, cancer free.

Rene Caisse (pronounced “Reen Case”) later gave the tea to her 72-year old mother who was diagnosed with inoperable cancer of the liver, with only days to live.  Her mother recovered and lived without cancer for another 18 years.

In the ensuing years Nurse Caisse refined and perfected the original “medicine man’s” formula.  She tested various herbal combinations on laboratory mice and on human cancer patients.  She eventually reduced the tea to four herbs:  burdock root, sheep sorrel (whole herb including the roots), slippery elm and Turkey rhubarb.  She called the formula Essiac, which is her surname spelled backwards.  [Read “I Was Canada’s Cancer Nurse” for more details.]

Rene Caisse devoted over fifty years of her life to treating hundreds of cancer patients with Essiac.

Burdock flower

For centuries burdock root has been regarded as an effective blood purifier that neutralizes and eliminates poisons from the body.  Burdock contains a volatile oil–especially in the seeds–that is eliminated through the sweat glands, taking toxins with it and alleviating skin problems.  Burdock contains niacin, which is known to eliminate poisons from the body, including radiation.  Burdock also supports the bladder, kidney and liver and has been said to dissolve kidney stones.  It also contains an abundance of minerals, particularly iron.  Studies have shown anti-tumor activity in burdock.  Japanese scientists have isolated an anti-mutagenic property in burdock, which they call the “B factor”.  The Japanese grow burdock root for food as well as medicine.  A memorandum from the World Health Organization revealed that burdock was active against HIV.  Extracts of burdock seed have demonstrated potent anti-cancer action against leukemia [HERBAL MEDICINE, HEALING & CANCER by Donald Yance].  Burdock is also a component in the Hoxsey herbal cancer treatment.

 

SHEEP SORREL (Rumex acetosella)

sheep sorrrel

Rene Caisse isolated sheep sorrel as the main Essiac herb that caused regression of metastasized cancer and reduction of tumors.  She used the whole herb including sheep sorrel roots.   In fact, she stated that sheep sorrel roots are a necessary part of the formula.  In spite of this fact, nearly all Essiac suppliers do not include the roots.  CLICK HERE to find out why.

 

Dr. Ralph Moss points out that sheep sorrel contains aloe emodin, a natural substance that shows significant anti-leukemic activity.  Sheep sorrel contains antioxidants, is diuretic and has been used to check hemorrhages.  Sheep sorrel is a traditional food of native cultures and is still served in fine restaurants along with other sorrels.  CLICK HERE for more information about sheep sorrel.

 

SLIPPERY ELM (Ulmus rubra/fulva)

The inner bark of the slippery elm tree is well-known for its soothing and healing properties.  It reduces inflammations such as sore throat, diarrhea and urinary problems.  It has been regarded as both a food and medicine.  Dr. Moss noted that “slippery elm contains beta-sitosterol and a polysaccharide, both of which have shown [anti-cancer] activity.”  [CANCER THERAPY, p. 147]

 

 

TURKEY RHUBARB ROOT (Rheum palmatum tanguticum)

Turkey Rhubarb has been shown to have anti-tumor activity.  It is diuretic, anti-inflammatory,anti-bacterial and has been used extensively to relieve constipation.  It is medicinally more potent than garden rhubarb root and is more palatable.

A while back I posted about a 19 year old collie cross called Kia we offered a retirement home to after her owners left her at the pound to be pts. She was very stiff and could hardly walk, she has been on Golden Paste for just over 2 weeks now.. These are the results!

 

 

  • This is the recipe I use. smile emoticon thank you for your kind words everyone it means so much to me. I had originally thought we may only have her for a few months but now I’m starting to wonder if she will outlive us all !

and a little more information :

GOLDEN PASTE

* 150g of turmeric powder

* 250ml of water, and a little more in reserve if needed

* 1 ½ teaspoons of freshly ground black pepper

* 70ml cold pressed olive or coconut oil.

Place the water and turmeric in a pan, stirring over a gentle heat until you

have a thick paste. This should take about 7-10 minutes but don’t panic if it

takes longer! If your paste goes a little to thick add some of the extra water.

Once you have got your paste take off the heat and add the pepper and oil, stir

well make sure it is all mixed together. Allow to cool then store in a

sterilised glass jar in the fridge. The paste should keep for up to 4 weeks.

This paste is for animals and humans, start off on about 1\4tsp and

gradually build up over a few weeks, until you see a difference in

yourself/animal. Feed morning and evening if possible. There isn’t a specific dosage

so what works for one may not work for the other.

Piperine, from fresh ground black pepper, will increase the absorbency of

other substances in your stomach- so if you are on regular medication, you may

experience a higher absorbency rate than intended for those drugs. Please

consult your doctor or pharmacist.

Diatomaceous Earth Recipes

Coupled with lower blood pressure, this study done by the University of Innsbruck in Austria found that DE may reduce blood cholesterol and positively influence lipid metabolism in people.

Some people are skeptical about eating diatomaceous earth for health benefits. It’s weird to think you can eat the same thing that you’re using to exterminate insects. But, isn’t that kind of a good thing? The pesticide you use in your garden, home, and yard is so safe you can eat it. Now, before we delve further into our discussion here, we have to talk a little bit about the different grades of diatomaceous earth. If you’re new to diatomaceous earth, this next section is a must read because it’s an important distinction to make. For our veteran diatomaceous earth-ers, feel free to skip the next section.

Stop! In the Name of Pool Grade Diatomaceous Earth
If the label on you diatomaceous earth says pool grade and your intending to eat it, just stop right there. Spit it out and throw it away. Or put it in your pool filter because that is it’s only intended use. Pool grade diatomaceous earth has been superheated so the diatoms form into crystals. This process turns the silica into crystalline silica. This process is necessary to make diatomaceous earth a more efficient filter for pools but makes it a big NO if you want to ingest DE.

Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is the Good Stuff to Eat
The title says it all really, but here is a bit of explanation for the newbies. Mined straight out of the earth, unaltered DE contains a high amount of amorphous silica. This is what makes it the good stuff and about 85 percent of diatomaceous earth is silica. Food grade diatomaceous earth contains other trace minerals, with “trace” meaning that it contains a quantity of less than 1 percent. The wonderful thing about food grade DE is it contains less than 1 percent crystalline silica.

Danielle Baethge: Recipe Mastermind

We caught up with our good friend Danielle whose blog It’s a Love/Love Thing covers many topics like family, school, natural care, and homemade, natural recipes. She’s used diatomaceous earth for a few years as well and has even written a blog post about making Homemade Diatomaceous Earth Toothpaste. Here’s her DE story:
“I first found out about diatomaceous earth several years ago, when our house had a flea problem. Back then, DE was not easy to find and I don’t think I would have even thought to look for it on Amazon. I never did get a gold of any until about 2 years ago, when I started hearing about its interest detox properties.”
“The most remarkable effects I’ve noticed are increased energy and sugar cravings disappearing. I don’t know how to describe it; I just felt like my system was running cleaner and smoother. I also had an infection on my hand that would come every winter when my skin would get really dry. I started drinking kombucha and taking diatomaceous earth, and within a few days, this rash was gone. It was pretty amazing.”
One of the thing’s Danielle focuses on in her blog is nutrition and food preparation. She was kind enough to give us some alternative beverages for people to take their DE with. Have you ever had it with just water? It’s a bit gritty, which is fine, but it’s tasteless. Danielle’s recipes will enlighten the committed diatomaceous earth users and newbies alike, so take a look. You might even find new beverages you’ve never heard of.

DANIELLE’S 5 SIMPLE DRINK RECIPES FOR TAKING DIATOMACEOUS EARTH:

1. Coconut-Honey DE

If you’ve never heard of coconut water then you’re missing out. Not to be confused with coconut milk and oil, it’s the water found at the center of a coconut, and it’s harvested from young, green coconuts. Some people have referred to it as “Mother Nature’s Sports Drink”, and it has less calories, sodium, and contains more potassium than your run-of-the-mill sports drink. Read this article by WebMD about coconut water. When you’re out shopping for coconut water, read through the label and look for the most natural coconut water with no added sugars or juices.
Ingredients
6 oz coconut water
1 tsp honey
1 tsp diatomaceous earth
Directions:
Purchase coconut water from your local grocery store. Heat up some honey and mix it into the water and add the DE. Make sure you mix it as often as you drink.

 

2. Kombuchalk

kombucha tea

Alternatively it’s known as the mushroom tea, even though it’s not made out of mushrooms, but because the bacteria and yeast in the tea float to the top and look like a mushroom. This doesn’t sound too appetizing, but it’s actually quite a popular drink and has recently gained in popularity in the United States. People have found that adding diatomaceous earth to their diet can help with better digestive help, more regular bowel movements, stronger teeth and gums, healthier hair and nails, and clearer skin.
Ingredients
1 cup of Kombucha Tea
1 tsp diatomaceous earth
Directions
If you feel brave, you can try and make your own Kombucha Tea, or you can head to your local grocery store and purchase it there. Then just add a teaspoon of diatomaceous earth and give it a shake.

 

3. Banana Berry Smoothie

strawberry banana smoothie

This is a classic way to enjoy diatomaceous earth, and you won’t even know it’s in there. This is just one example of a smoothie with simple ingredients almost everybody has in the kitchen. If the movie Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves taught us anything, it’s that bananas are loaded with potassium, (I know, I shouldn’t make references to outdated 90s movies), but bananas are recognized by the FDA for their ability to lower blood pressure and protect against heart attack and stroke. Coupled with lower blood pressure, this study done by the University of Innsbruck in Austria found that DE may reduce blood cholesterol and positively influence lipid metabolism in people.
Ingredients
2 cups milk
1 Banana
Handful of assorted berries
1 tsp diatomaceous earth
Directions
Add all the ingredients into a blender and mix together. Refrigerate any unused portions.

 

4. DE Juice

carrot juice

Carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A, providing 210% for what an average adult needs per day. They also provide vitamin K, potassium, folate, manganese, phosphorous, magnesium, and zinc. Read on MedicalNewsToday.com to learn about other possible benefits of adding carrots to your diet. With juicing, you do lose the pulp of the fruit and vegetables so you lose some fiber, so be sure you get fiber in some other way. If you have a juicer and kids who are picky eaters, this is a great solution. When you juice carrots, they have a sweet, mild flavor that’s easy for the whole family to enjoy.
Ingredients
6 medium to large carrots
½ Granny Smith apple
Small chunk of red beet
1 tsp diatomaceous earth
Directions
Juice the carrots, apple, and beet together. Add 1 tsp of DE and enjoy!

 

5. Diatomaceous Coffee

If you’re too busy to take diatomaceous earth then simply add to your morning coffee. As you know, diatomaceous earth is loaded with silica, and we’re learning more about the exact correlation between silica and its potential health benefits. While this correlation is still being established, we know that bad things happen when the body is deficient in silica.

According to the Journal of Nutrition, Health & Aging when there is a deficiency in silica, it induces deformities in the skull and peripheral bones, joints are poorly formed, cartilage contents are reduced, and there is a disruption of mineral balance in the femur and vertebrae.
Ingredients
1 cup of coffee
1 tsp diatomaceous earth
Directions
Simply add DE to your cup of coffee in the morning!
If you decide to eat DE, it should be a part of a healthy diet, and a commitment to live healthier. Check out Danielle’s blog for even more recipes and remember to comment below to let us know how your thoughts and questions.

Top 10 Ways To Manually Check Your Health

Yippee

Top 10 Ways To Manually Check Your Health

1. The color of your urine – if you’re getting enough water, your urine will be clear. Urine that’s constantly yellow indicates de-hydration and increased toxic load. The answer is to drink more water in-between meals.

2. Coffee addiction – a lack of energy is often masked by coffee addiction. Take a day off coffee and meet the real you. Malnutrition and a lack of proper relaxation causes fatigue that leads to caffeine and other stimulant addictions. Don’t hide from the effects of an unhealthy lifestyle by using addictive chemical stimulants. It will only hit you harder later.

3. Amount of daily fecal discharge (pooping) – you’re supposed to move 12 inches of fecal material daily. This can be with one bathroom visit but moving your bowels after each meal is optimal. If you’re not moving 12 inches of fecal material per day, the toxins in the body will be high and disease could be coming to visit. The answer is less stress and more whole live organic foods.

4. Headaches – having one headache ever week or once every 2 weeks indicates a high level of intestinal distress from either toxins, unhealthy gut flora, excessive stress, alcohol consumption, food allergies, de-hydration etc. Headaches mean you need to clean up your lifestyle and reconnect with the message your body is sending. Most headaches start in the intestines.

5. Skin rashes or red skin blotches – when the body can’t move poisons out through the bowels or the bladder, it uses the skin next. These toxins often turn the skin red and when a hot day comes around, more of these toxins move out to the skin from sweat. The answer is greater dedication to a healthy lifestyle.

6. Acne – acne again is a sign the body is in toxic shock, moving the excessive poisonous load out through the skin. An unhealthy diet and unhealthy lifestyle habits are often the culprits. The answer is empowering yourself to a healthier lifestyle and not relying on your doctor to drug the body, so it stops telling you what you really need to do. Disease is a guardian, not a goblin. Listen to the message.

7. Common colds and a stuffed up nose – a weakened immune system will succumb to a cold a 1-2 times per year. A truly healthy immune system can go years, if not a decade without catching a cold or runny nose. Catching a common cold, sore throat, running nose etc means your tissues aren’t strong enough (with nutrition) to keep foreign invaders out. Eat a healthier diet to make your internal tissues strong enough to keep disease outside of yourself.

8. Joint pain – a toxic body is in chronic pain, especially in the joints……especially after the sun goes down. If your joint pain flares up in the early evening, it’s a sign the body is cleaning the toxins out of the joints and expanding them with inflammation to get the job done. Painkillers not only increase toxicity in the body, they lead to other secondary diseases. The answer is health and dealing with reality.

9. Hunger cravings – hunger shouldn’t come on fast and it should not lead to fatigue and aggressive changes in mood. If someone is experiencing extreme hunger cravings, they most likely are consuming excessive carbohydrates and will need to consume higher quality whole organic foods and healthy fats to maintain more even blood sugar.

10. Cellulite, weight gain and water retention. – all three of these items occur when the body is toxic and no amount of exercise will be able to control the negative effects of an unhealthy diet. A toxic body stores toxins in fat cells and increases water retention, in an attempt to decrease overall toxic load. If you poison yourself, a bigger you is a safer you. That’s how the body protects you from the poison. People today aren’t “fat”, they’re toxic. The simple answer is to build health daily, using the rule of baby steps and take control of your destiny.

Don’t react to disease. Build your health. Enjoy your week.
