This book is a no frills, frank discussion of the use of essiac to build up the immune system so the body can fight cancer and many other immune related diseases. The history of the discovery of native use of essiac by Rene Caisse and how she was able to use it successfully to help a large number of people is very encouraging to potential users of essiac today. I have purchased several copies of this book and given them away to cancer sufferers who have immediately began using the tea with great trust and hope. The odds of being helped by essiac presented in this book are so much better than most cancer patients could imagine that they are eager to try it. Every cancer patient should read this book and then make up their mind about how they wish to combat their disease!

This book is very easy to read -- gives a history of how the tea was "adapted" from a native American herbal recipe, the struggle to get the word out and the battle with the established medical community regarding its use. Would highly recommend to any person diagnosed with cancer or anyone with a family member affected by the disease. Read the book before medical treatment begins and certainly, do not give up hope, even if the doctors say "there's nothing else we can do". THERE IS HOPE -- PLEASE READ THE BOOK!

Western Medicine is a tremendous resource...Some parents would walk 2 days to get to a hospital for antibiotics for a sick child. What a miracle! Yet even there, it is easy to forget that even Penicillin is produced by Penicillium chrysogenum, a type of Fungi, i.e. it was developed by studying Nature.

We need to re-embrace nature-based solutions to health care, and we desperately need to protect our Rain Forests, where so many natural medicines are still waiting to be discovered. ( See the inspired genius PAUL STAMETS, Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World, for more on this topic)

What does this have to do with this book? Well, this book clearly and fairly discusses a fairly unknown herbal treatment, which has remarkably helped many, many cancer patients; it can even be taken together with conventional treatment. There is no silver bullet for all cancers, but everyone should know about this beautiful elegant herbal remedy!

ESSIAC TEA was used to treat Cancer patients by RENE CAISSE, a beautifully dedicated nurse in Canada who discovered that one of her patients had been cured of Breast Cancer, from this traditional Ojibwe, First Nation tonic. The story of RENE CAISSE, is extremely moving. She only treated people in late stage cancer, who had a note from their doctors, saying there was nothing more Western Medicine could do, AND SHE DID IT FOR FREE!

Still, she was hounded by the Government, and the Conventional Medical Establishment, even though some doctors, including President Kennedy's personal physician, honored and recognized her work.

Read this book if you or a loved one is dealing with Cancer. Read this book if you want to see a prime example of herbal natural treatments being suppressed instead of honored and embraced. We need all sorts of treatments to help us be well. May we honor the new age of Complimentary Medicine...honoring technological advancements, yes, but also Honoring the gifts of our Indigenous Cultures, and also HONORING the amazing gifts of Nature, which must be protected much more fiercely than we are doing now. PLEASE PROTECT THE RAIN FORESTS & MOTHER EARTH!...

BLESSINGS ON YOUR HEALING JOURNEY!

This unique book by Cynthia Olsen, a veteran and respected researcher and author of natural health, and a pioneer in the field, details a remarkable natural remedy with a history of use concerning cancer; this book also details essential health concerns for those facing cancer in themselves or loved ones in a compassionate, caring, and useful way that makes this, in my opinion, a classic in natural health publishing and an essential reference for all interested in vital health. Excellent resources, detailed history, correct and respectful attribution to native amerian sources, and direct and personal style of writing also make this a highly readable, useful, and interesting work.Of all the existing works on this subject, articles and books, I rate this the highest on the topic, after years of my own research and publishing work in the area of health and natural healing.Members of my own family have succumbed to cancer and I believe this book would have helped them maintain a higher quality of life if they had had it then.

I was diagnosed with stage IV melanoma and had three tumors removed from my lung and brain. My doctors told me that there was nothing they could do further, "go home and die", I had three or four months! I searched the web and found Cassie's book and took Essiac for a year. I am still alive 12 years later. I have given the book to anyone with cancer who will try it. In spite of doctors it seems to work.

My PSA was 5.4 and my physician could not lower it. Essiac lowered it to 0.00 where it has remained. I continue to take Essiac and will take it the remainder of my life. It worked wonders for me, and it will for others who take the liquid from Canada.

This inexpensive little guide to the basics about this wonderful healing tea is all you really need to get started. The four herb original Indian medicine really works! We will probably drink it for the rest of our lives. Yes, it's that healing!
