This was a very quick read for anyone who is interested in the history and benefits of Essiac Tea. It is a very thorough and well written book. I have purchased and brewed my first batch of Essiac tea and it is pretty darn tasty. I will add this to my morning routine because even if you don't have cancer, it is very healthy for you.
Covers all the bases by concisely and clearly addressing key questions and concerns facing cancer patients and their caregivers when evaluating promising complementary/alternative therapies. This is a compassionate and compelling account of the efficacy of Essaic Tea. Caroline DeHarde Bennett did what any cancer patient would love for someone to do for them when they are faced with the diagnosis of cancer and then the daunting task of trying to discern the best treatment path. This is an easy read, a great reference, a creation of hope, love, and encouragement for the benefit of anyone with cancer or anyone seeking to prevent it.
I have been a personal trainer in the fitness industry for over 15 years and have seen various types of cancer destroy peoples lives and break their spirits. I now recommend this book to all my clients, relatives, friends and loved ones who are diagnosed with cancer or know someone who is. The author, Caroline Bennett, has made an extremely compelling argument, backed with scientifically validated information, individual testimonies, the history of essiac tea, and undergird it all with a passion for the truth. At the very least, I feel as though anyone who is in a battle for their life with cancer or knows someone who is should strongly consider using the information in this book regarding essiac tea as an adjunct to any conventional cancer treatments. This book is informative, practical and well written for the general public to understand. I would strongly recommend it!
The author examines the history and efficacy of a safe and compelling alternative to conventional cancer treatment that offers too much favorable evidence to ignore. It is a powerful and important continuation of Rene Caisse's mission, and in reading it, you will be arming yourself and loved ones with an invaluable defense against the devastation of cancer.
This book explains the story of a nurse who made great efforts to help cancer patients with an herbal tea mixture. This is an excellent book for anyone who has or knows someone who is fighting cancer. I highly recommend it.
A beautiful and complete history of Essiac tea: it's discovery, use, science, political controversy, efficacy, and compelling stories of it saving countless lives. This book reviews not only powerful anecdotal evidence of the tea's ability to treat numerous forms of cancer, but it also covers the scientific studies that were done to investigate, and in the end support, these claims. This book makes an unimpeachable argument for the worth of trying this treatment for anyone who has cancer. It investigates the components in the tea and their ability to supplement and support your body's own natural defenses against cancer, as well as inflammation and other autoimmune issues. It also tears down the dismissive attitudes in the medical community towards Essiac tea, tracing such prejudices back to motivations that had more to do with greed and competing products than any science.
We are our best health advocates. This is an empowering book.
A nice composite summary of the literature on Rene Caisse's life, this book combines info from all of the various and sundry folk who have ever put a pen to paper about Essiac, lol, folks who have never and never would all choose to be in the same room together. It paints a good picture for us to remember Rene Caisse by. However, it does read a little bit like a college paper. One glaring omission was the author's failure to note Sheila Snow's discovery of the little-known central importance of Sheep sorrel root in the Essiac formula (as opposed to just the arial parts), as documented in correspondence between Rene Caisse and the Sloan-Kettering folks when they were researching Essiac in the 1970s. They gave Snow copies of the correspondence when she was writing her first Essiac book, The Essence of Essiac, and they are now part of the Sheila Snow Fraser Essiac Archive collection, the world's largest remaining body of Essiac history and memorabilia. Snow went on to co-author a total of four more books on Essiac with Mali Klein. Ms. Bennett did cite the first two Snow/Klein books, Essiac Essentials, and Essiac the Secrets of Rene Caisse's Herbal Pharmacy, but completely overlooked the two most recent ones, The Essiac Book (2006) and The Complete Essiac Essentials (2010). The latter is a must-read for any serious Essiac researcher, or anyone who wants the perspective of someone who personally knew and worked with Rene Caisse. (Snow worked directly with Rene and her long-time friend and helper, Mary McPherson, and was involved in much of the Essiac history that happened in the 1970s.) Its great to see Rene Caisse and Essiac honored. It behooves anyone interested in regaining or improving their health, regardless of whether or not they have cancer, diabetes, or any of the other illnesses that the anecdotal record has documented as being responsive to Essiac. Its great to see information about this herbal remedy remaining in the public consciousness. Essiac is something we can all make and take for our well-being as either an alternative or together with more conventional therapies.
