Essiac Extract Blend - C-Cleanse: ESSIAC (Extract Blend) is a combination of six herbs originally brewed very laboriously into a tea. Together they normalize body systems by promoting cell repair, purifying the blood, aiding in effective assimilation and elimination and treating degenerative diseases. As with many who experience the frontiers of knowledge, Rene Caisse speculated what many still do not understand. She felt there was an undiscovered gland that was affected by this blend of herbs in Essiac, one that acts to inhibit the supply of substances that nourish cancer cells. When combined, their separate beneficial effects are synergistically enhanced.
SHEEP’S SORREL: René Caisse, who popularized Essiac tea as a cancer cure, felt sheep sorrel was the most active cancer fighter among all the herbs present in her formula. Caisse believed sheep sorrel acts as blood purifiers, carrying away destroyed tissue as well as infections thrown off by the malignancy.
TURKEY RHUBARB: Molecules available in rhubarb root have potential effects on cancer cells. The general anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects of anthraquinones and tannins have cancer-fighting roles. In addition, though, anthraquinones have specific tumor cell killing capabilities. The most highly concentrated anthraquinone in rhubarb root, emodin which prevents cell-cycle progression and induces cell death in cancer cells, with preference to cancer cells over healthy cells. Emodin has also been said to prevent cancer metastasis or spreading of cancer to different organs. Another anthraquinone in rhubarb root, rhein, inhibits glucose uptake in cancer cells and alters cancer cells’ cell membranes to induce death. Anthraquinones also can reduce radiation-induced lung damage while improving lung function in patients with lung cancer.
BURDOCK ROOT: Known for anti-fungal and antibacterial action. It’s blood purifying effects are powerful. Burdock Root prevents cellular mutation by blocking dangerous chemicals from causing damage to cells, suggesting to help decrease the risk of developing cancer from toxic chemicals.
SLIPPERY ELM: One of the most nourishing and protective herbs nature has to offer. The health benefits of Slippery Elm are rooted mainly in its soothing properties. It is effectively used as an adhesive type herb to internally coat and soothe mucous membranes while also absorbing toxins which can cause cellular imbalances.
WATERCRESS: Studies have consistently shown that a compound in cruciferous vegetables known as 3,3'-diindolylmethane (DIM) has protective effects against cancer. Watercress is full of DIM which in this case is used as a shield to protect healthy tissues.
BLOOD ROOT: An important constituent found in Blood Root is Berberine (also found in Goldenseal, Oregon Grape and Honeysuckle). Berberine directly fights cancer cells.
Suggested Dosage: 15 drops, 3 times daily in pure water or unsweetened juice.
