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.
I want to thank this author for writing this book & I'm already recommending it to people referring them to Amazon. I have been stirring on this battle getting the word out & this book helps with a significant piece to add to the information. I use Ojibwa Essiac Tea with Willard Water Ultimate Concentrate because it greatly increases the potency - significantly, & with Red Palm Oil. I also use the Grape Cure by Johanna Brandt when ever I can get the discipline to start & stay on it faithfully. The Grape Cure is hardest the first 4-5 days, then you get used to it & are never hungry because of eating the grapes every 2 hours. It has WONDERFUL benefits. There is SO MUCH cancer in my family! It is a nightmare funeral after funeral. My grandmother had 14 children. Of those 5 have had cancer including my mother. Of those 5, 4 are deceased from it, & 3 adult children of one of the deceased uncles have had it with one of those adult children deceased from it. I do not take small amounts, after reading in Essiac An Indian Herbal Cancer Cure Remedy that an Ojibwa man said to take more, & to not dilute it. I always questionned the small amounts taken in the face of serious life defying disease. I take a full cup up to 4 times per day undiluted, that is 8 full undiluted ounces 1 to 4 times per day. I have a cup prepared by my night stand so it is the first thing I can grab in the middle of the night & early a.m. to keep empty-stomach dosing. If I'm wrong for taking that much, someone that knows, please let me know on the comment board here. It is a blessing to others getting the word out like this. I hear so many people pray at church openings for those members with cancer on radiation or chemo, ailing terribly, & I've been getting together things to post on their websites & copies of information for their entrance information tables to help get the word out, as we all should do. I will add be adding this book to the Word color book roster I have made with a colored picture of its cover included now. Thank you for much, for writing this book & working hard to get it out to the public.
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!
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.
