The Essiac Tea Combo Program Kit

$ 123.00

It is finally here! The Essiac Combo Program Kit! Around a decade ago in about 2009 when The Complete Essiac Essentials book was written by Mali Klein, and even earlier in her work as founder of the Clouds Trust in England, an Essiac Charity still in operation, she was working with several patients using multiple Essiac variations, all different combinations of the herbs Rene Caisse was known to have worked with. She was also varying dosage amounts and times.  Several sample programs used by "Steve," "Pat," "Mike" and "Susan" were outlined in the earlier book. For a long time we at Bue Moon Herbs have been talking about putting together a package sufficient for a six-month regimen. With much interest from customers in knowing if there is a 'cancer protocol' or higher recommended dosage for Essiac for people with more serious issues, we decided it was time to put this program together.  Many Essiac manufacturers are recommending larger serving sizes, and are cutting the amount of water called for in half to make a more concentrated concentrate, but Rene Caisse was very much opposed to all of this, maintaining that it was the quality of the action of the herbs in combination, more than the quantity. Good all over again.  May we all be, in 2021!

Included in the Kit:

  • Four 20g packets Essiac Extra (4- herb Essiac with Sheep sorrel 50% root)
  • Two 10g packets Essiac with Red Clover tea
  • Two 10g packet Essiac Gold tea
  • The Essiac Essentials Handbook (Mali Klein,  2016, softcover)

This program will last approximately six months. One quart, (from 10g dried herbs) contains 16 two oz. servings. Based on the recommended average of one day/week off, this would mean that a 10g packet will provide about 2 1/2 weeks worth of tea if taken 2 oz. per day.  Multiply 18 days by 12  for the net total weight of the tea herbs (120g), and the Combo Program adds up a total of 216 days or over seven months. For folks who stay at the lower end of the recommended dosage of one oz. per day, that doubles the number of servings.

The Essiac Combo Program is designed to vary the basic Essiac formula. This helps keep the immune system on its toes and it keeps the body more engaged in the healing process in general, because it has to actively adjust to the variations. The Combo Program was designed by Mali Klein and includes the classic 4-herb Essiac Extra formula, with a higher ratio of Sheep sorrel root to Sheep sorrel aerial parts (50/50) for extra potency. Two additional herbs Rene Caisse is known to have worked with were Red clover and Goldthread. Goldthread is not commercially available and so Goldenseal has been substituted in, as it has very similary properties. Both plants contain Berberine. The Combo Program contains enough for one person to follow the entire 6-7 month protocol.

The classic 4-herb Essiac formula has no known contraindications or side effects besides detoxification symptoms. Red clover may be contraindicated if you are on blood thinners, as some of its properties include anticoagulation. Research indicates that Red clover’s phytoestrogenic properties have been shown to increase bone formation in postmenopausal women.  Red clover also has coumarins, which are showing effectiveness against lung and breast cancers. Red clover has a high isoflavone content and isoflavones are thought to provide benefit when treating hormone-related cancers. Essiac with Red Clover’s coumarin content may duplicate the action of the blood-thinning medication Always consult with your health care professional if you have any questions or concerns. In the case of Essiac Gold, there is a precaution for people who have high blood pressure, and Essiac in general is contraindicated for pregnant or nursing women.

Brewing instructions for all the formulae are the same with the exception of the boiling times. Essiac Extra is boiled slightly longer. See the included instructions or consult the Essiac Essentials Handbook for more detail.

  • Dosage is the same for all three variations: 1 to 2 oz. per day, all at once or divided into two half doses. You can take up to 4 oz. per day for short periods as necessary.
  • How to rotate the herbs: Feel free to adjust the rotation to suit your preferences. The main point is to vary the dosage using the Essiac 4-herb blend as a baseline, taking the Essiac with Red Clover/Essiac Gold in between. In any one day, take the Essiac Gold and Essiac with Red Clover teas instead of the 4-herb Essiac, for variation, but not in addition to it.

Here is the basic protocol: Taking 2 fl. oz. per day for six days per week should amount to enough for one quart to last for a total of 18 days. 8X 18 days = at least 20 weeks. If taking less than 2 oz. per day, it is recommended that you use 16 oz. (pint)  bottles or jars, so the +- three week shelf life window is not passed.
