Alternative Cancer and AIDS Treatments : Esseac Tea and 714X

I feel that cancer patients should have the right to decide on standard medicine or alternative medicine. It is very difficult to find the information on alternative therapies. Your doctor will not give you this information. In fact they will tell you there is no value in these alternative treatments. It is up to you to find the real truth.

So in my  blogs I will give you resources to do your own research so you then have knowledge to make that informed decision. No therapy standard or alternative can guarantee your life. You may still die using the therapies of either modalities.   You should have the right to freely choose your path in cancer treatment, not your doctor or the government.  

Please promote this blog to your friends who might be interested. Help me spread the word on this information!

The treatments I am presenting in this blog are for your education and research. I don't directly have experience with them other than Esseac for which I take but not for cancer. I have used it for over 15 years. I began taking it after a fall which caused kidney damage and compromised function. I use it to support my kidney function and health.  I take it every day and will continue to do so.

Legal Disclaimer below  I have to state on these blogs so I don't get hung by the Medical Authorities. The information presented in these articles is not approved by the AMA, FDA, or probably your doctor. This information is for education only. Please consult a holistic clinic or doctor if you  have cancer. You still have the right to review this information and research it for yourselves. That is my goal in these blogs, you give you access to other treatment information you may want to consider.

The Billy Best Story: Beating Cancer with Alternative Medicine. 

In 1995 Billy Best was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. After several chemotherapy treatments, he ran away from home.  A nation wide search was headline news at the time. He used Esseac Tea and 714X to treat his cancer.  He survived and has written a book titled, The Billy Best Story: Beating Cancer with Alternative Medicine.  It is an amazing book of courage. 

Children are not given a choice in this country. They are forced into chemo and radiation, taken away from their family if they object to the program. It is called Medical Kidnapping and is now escalating by the medical powers that rule this country.  

The two therapies he used along with diet were: 

Esseac Tea: 

It is a combination tea that Rene Cassie in Canada utilized with great success for Cancer. I sell the books on Esseac and her story of persecution by the Canadian government. There were many people who worked hard to legalize Esseac tea. She had thousands of successful cases. Her files were destroyed by the government. There are many patients who were healed by her treatment. The book should be read by everyone even if you don't have cancer. You may one day.

I do sell Esseac Tea in my store.  

The Naessens 714X Treatment

Gaston Naessens, his new microscope invention and  714X are extremely important in the fight against cancer.

714X is a non toxic health product, an immunomodulator, available for over 30 years now. It is particularly recommended for health conditions involving a weakened or totally exhausted immune system. This product acts directly upon the body’s natural defences and not on the affected cells. For this reason, 714X can be of assistance in many health problems.

Throughout the years, 714X has been successfully used in many cases of degenerative diseases (such as cancer or multiple sclerosis) and autoimmune diseases such as lyme, lupus erythematosus HIV. 

714X may also be used in a complementary fashion with conventional as well as non conventional treatments. Not only can 714X greatly improve quality of life, by increasing energy.  Better appetite and less pain can also be expected. 714X may also be used in a preventative health program

Unfortunately, the clinic cannot predict if 714X will extend the life of patients because the product doesn’t work on a specific disease, but rather on the immune system.

The history of 714X  

This treatment is today available in Canada. The information is shown at the end of this blog.  Here are some excerpts from a article written about this man and his treatment.  It is a horrible story of how any cancer treatment other than standard medicine is suppressed and destroyed if possible. This story ends in defeat of the medical systems that run this country and Canada.

Gaston Naessens was dragged though the court system and eventually Gaston Naessens was brought to trial in Quebec. He was acquitted and completely exonerated. His successfully treated cancer patients and some important people went to court to support his treatment method and success. His story is amazing on how he developed his treatment and the hell he went through so it could be made available to patients today. 

Excerpts below are from the article located on the link included in this blog. Please read the whole article on this man, his brilliance, his persecution, and triumph. 

You will find the detailed article on his microscope, what is seen in your blood, how he developed his treatment, and how it works.  It is one of the most valuable articles you could read on this treatment. I hope these excerpts will drive you to read the whole article. It could save your life someday or that of someone you love.

He invented a new microscope which shows elements of the blood not seen in a normal microscope. They are called Somatids. These elements show the state of your health and the vitality of your blood, its life force. His treatment was then developed.

"1992 -- A growing interest in Naessens' approach to cancer, AIDS and other such diseases continues to grow. As of October of this year, 210 MD's across the country (Canada) were administering it to patients. Naessens was also invited to the controversial conference on alternative treatments for AIDS held in Amsterdam in May. This conference was attended by such notables as Luc Montagier, the French scientist who is credited with the discovery of the so called "AIDS virus." In Europe, the Philippines, New Zealand, Australia and the U.S., physicians are using 714-X with the conclusion that barring total destruction of the immune system, this may be the most promising treatment for AIDS and cancer ever seen. In the U.S. an independent study on 714-X using human patients has been under way since last May.

"This new microscope is being used as part of a program for cancer patients available to Canadians. After deciding that 714-X is a treatment that the patient would like to pursue, then it is necessary to convince the medical doctor this is the treatment of choice.

"Among the growing number of physicians who are recognizing the efficacy of 714X is Dr. Dietmar Schildwaechter, a former faculty member of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine who now directs a cancer rehabilitation center in his native Germany. He came across Naessens' treatment in 1990 through one of his own patients, who showed marked improvement when, unbeknownst to him, she began taking it. When he found out what she was taking, he began looking into the unconventional treatment himself. He "realized that Naessens had discovered and identified what others had only partially seen."

Schildwaechter is now the chief investigator of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) that is documenting the successes of 714X with the goal of obtaining FDA approval for its use in the United States as an experimental treatment.

How to Get Access to 714X in Canada

Having established that, then the physician is to notify the Emergency Drug Program in Ottawa at (613) 993-3105. A history of the patient is required, and the serum and instructions on administering it will be sent directly from the Naessens clinic to the doctor. 

Details on how to obtain the Somatoscope, or requests for information on the 714X therapy, can be addressed to: The Naessens Clinic C.O.S.E. 

5270 Fontaine Rock Forest, 
Quebec J1N 3B6 or telephone 

(819) 564-7883 or FAX (819) 564-2195. 
Or, send $15 to HANS [to help cover costs] and we will send you an information package on this topic."

Note : I called the 819-564-7883 (Canada) to verify it was still open.

If you call them, they will send you information on their 

program for your review.

Compelling Reasons Why You Should Use Alternative Therapies Over Standard Medicine

I am 64 years old. I became a Master Herbalist when my youngest was a toddler to find the answers to her health problems that the doctors I worked with, could not.  My life at that time was entrenched in the standard medical system. I worked for a clinic whose outreach was Indian reservations, before the money that casinos brought in. I was trained as a medical assistant performing x-rays, blood tests, and many of the things today that are outsourced to labs. One of my jobs at the clinic was to keep track of the drugs used and to meet with drug manufacturing reps. I got taken out to lunch often, hoping I would use my influence with the doctors to buy their products. I did that for 5 years until I stopped work to have my second child. The doctor I worked with delivered my son at home.  So I know how the standard medical system works. I worked with the drug salesmen so I have experience in knowing how that works as well. It isn't good. At the time, it did not phase me for I was entrenched in the medical system.  Very few herbalists out there, worked in the standard medical system as I have. It gives me experience that in the basis for some of my blogs.

So why does one turn from being entrenched in the system to being a rebel against it? The doctors had no answers to my young daughter's declining health and their drugs which did not work. 

So today's blog is the compelling reasons  why you should use herbal medicine and see holistic doctors instead. In doing so I need to present the case against standard medicine.  Standard medicine does well in putting your hand back on after a car wreck. It does well in critical care situations where a few minutes time is the difference between life and death. It has excelled in creating answers for people who have lost limbs. It has advanced in saving people's life where surgery is the only option.

There are areas of medicine where I support standard medicine and its success. But............

In the US standard medicine does a poor job in preventing disease or stopping metabolic problems in the early stages, before they turn into a disease which shows up in lab tests. They don't have much to offer you when you have a cold or flu. They now know that antibiotics are not working and instead causing super bugs and antibiotic resistant diseases such as TB, Staph, and gonorrhea. Vets commit suicide every hour because standard medicine does not have answers for their PTSD except drugs. So in many areas, their treatments are not working. Certainly not in preventive medicine.  Here are some stats below:

440,000 people die each year from medical mistakes! 

Medical mistakes are the 3rd leading cause of death in the US  

#1:    "Washington, D.C., October 23, 2013 – New research estimates up to 440,000 Americans are dying annually from preventable hospital errors. This puts medical errors as the third leading cause of death in the United States, underscoring the need for patients to protect themselves and their families from harm, and for hospitals to make patient safety a priority."

"Released today, the Fall 2013 update to The Leapfrog Group (Leapfrog) Hospital Safety Score assigns A, B, C, D and F grades to more than 2,500 U.S. general hospitals. It shows many hospitals are making headway in addressing errors, accidents, injuries and infections that kill or hurt patients, but overall progress is slow. The Hospital Safety Score is calculated under the guidance of the Leapfrog Blue Ribbon Expert Panel, with a fully transparent methodology analyzed in the peer-reviewed Journal of Patient Safety."

Here is another link on the subject above,

12 million Americans are Misdiagnosed each year!
Visit the article below to read it yourself!
  1. 17, 2014 ... Each year in the U.S., approximately 12 million adults who seek outpatient medical care are misdiagnosed, according to a new study published ...
  1. Nearly 1 million children potentially misdiagnosed with ADHD  
    1. Article and stats  by the National Center for Education Statistics.

  1. 2015 Cancer Death Rates from the American Cancer Society  (despite chemotherapy, radiation, drugs, and surgery)

  2. 312,000 women die from cancer per year despite standard medicine treatment of chemo, radiation, and drugs

  3. 277,000 men die each year

  4. 86,000 men die of lung cancer

  5. 71,000 women die of lung cancer

  6. 40,000 women die of breast cancer

So these published stats prove how dangerous it is to go to the hospital and get standard medical care. It is not effective in many cases and there are 400,000 mistakes and 12 million misdiagnosis.  

That is why in the last 30 years I have stayed away from doctors except for a few occasions, mostly when I needed tests or a general exam.  I have been in the hospital once in my life, other than having my two other children. I have treated myself for 3 blood clots in my legs over the years with herbal medicine. I use herbal medicine for my kidneys that are compromised from one car accident and a fall that could have killed me.  I deal with phlebitis on a daily basis which it genetic from my mom.  I have used herbal medicine on some real tough health problems. So I walk the talk.  I do use standard medicine to get tests when I need to know what I am up against as recently. I have taken antibiotics three times in the last 15 years. One was for an abscess in my jaw which caused my face to swell up like a balloon. I was working a job and in horrible pain. Once was recently for a skin infection that for two weeks seems unrelenting and unstoppable. 

Despite the facts above is herbal medicine a better choice?

"According to the U.S. National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (part of the National Institutes of Health), about 38 percent of Americans currently avail themselves of some form of complementary/alternative medicine, which can also include dietary supplements, meditation, chiropractic services, Pilates, and Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine."
This number has increased since this report.

"Doctors and nurses were found to be more than twice as likely as non-clinical health-care support workers to have tried out a practitioner-based complementary or alternative medicine service (such as a chiropractor) in the past year."

So many doctors will not prescribe herbs or alternative

therapies  to their patients but are secretly using it for 


Here are 10 healthy reasons to use alternative therapies:

  • Alternative medicine focuses on prevention and early correction of metabolic imbalances before they become a disease state.   Holistic doctors look for signs in the skin, the tongue, your nails, subtle signs that point to occurring imbalances.  They spend more time with their patients and they listen to what the patient is telling them. They do not treat just on a lab test result.

  • Herbal and alternative therapies seek to get to the base cause of a problem such as acid/alkaline imbalance. Chiropractic restores circulation and healing through correcting spinal misalignment.  This benefits nerves, bones, and organs.  Holistic doctors want to find the base cause such as diet problems that result in metabolic problems later. They read between the lines.

  • Herbal and alternative therapies strengthen and support the body and its systems, so those systems can effectively work better. If your pancreas is healthy, you won't need medicine. If you correct blood sugar problems in the beginning you won't have to take insulin later. Herbs that support the pancreas build this gland up, strengthen, and support its function.

  • Some Herbs focus on cleaning out different body systems of the body so that they function more effectively. A bowel works much more effectively when it is not clogged up. The blood system is healthy when not clogged up with plaque or other clogging material. The blood system works better when not contaminated with heavy metals and other contamination such as pollution. 

  • Herbal medicine is safer and has few side effects than drugs whose side effects include heart attacks and death.  Herbs contain nutritional components, as well as medicinal factors that act together to improve health.  

  • Herbal medicine and alternative therapies do work and are effective. They often need the guidance of a holistic doctor to be used properly and effectively.

  • Herbal Medicine and Alternative Therapies are used by doctors in many countries, not just third world countries.  Why is it suppressed here? Money and power!
           The view of doctors in the US is NOT the view of doctors in other countries.
  • "Empirical and scientific evidence exists to support the benefits of acupuncture, manual therapies and several medicinal plants for chronic or mild conditions. For instance, the effectiveness of acupuncture, a popular treatment for relieving pain, has been demonstrated both through numerous clinical trials and laboratory experiments. As a result, 90% of pain clinics in the United Kingdom and 70% in Germany include acupuncture as a form of treatment. Equally, some medicinal plants have shown efficacy for life-threatening conditions; medicine combinations containing the Chinese herb Artemisia annua are now considered amongst the most effective remedies against malaria."

  • "For instance, Ginkgo biloba is a popularly used herbal medicine worldwide whose main function is to prevent vascular disease and to increase blood circulation. "

There are more countries that use herbal medicine than countries that do not.  They are not just third world countries that do not have money to buy standard medicine. Germany is an example below.  I have brought in quotes that are very important to this discussion.  It is thought by most Americans that herbal use only is used in countries like Africa that are poor. That is not true and a lie presented by articles here. Read the article listed below in full so that you realize how you are being brainwashed by the medical system here. Many of the articles that tell you herbs don't work are out and out lies. They will tell you there is not research to back up the use of herbal medicine and alternative therapies and it is a lie.  You are being lied to with full intent to mislead you. 

  • "Germany
    The German people are so supportive of natural medicine that the German government mandated that all medical school curricula include information about natural medicines. Approximately 10 percent of German doctors specialize in homeopathy, with approximately 10 percent more prescribing homeopathic remedies on occasion. In 1993, there were 1,993 medical doctors who had formally qualified in homeopathy, while in 2006, this number jumped over 100 percent to 6,073 (20). In Germany there are 9,000 natural health practitioners called heilpraktikers in 1993 and over 20,000 in 2007. Approximately 20-30 of heilpraktikers specialize in homeopathy."

  • "In most developed countries—also in Germany—patients have access to HM via physicians, nonmedical CAM practitioners and on a self-initiated basis. Consequently, diverse healthcare professionals mainly doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and nonmedical CAM practitioners are involved in HM. In Germany, HM is known as one of the five main elements of classic naturopathy (phytotherapy, hydrotherapy, exercise therapy, dietetic therapy, and “life style regulation” therapy) also known as Kneipp therapies. The overall percentage of Germans using HM increased from 52% in 1970 to 70% in 2010 [2]."
HM refers to herbal medicine in these quotes above and below
  • "German doctors can obtain a postgraduate qualification for “naturopathy,” which includes HM. At the end of the year 2011, 15.949 German doctors had the qualification “naturopathy,” with 70% thereof working in the outpatient sector [4]. However, recent data suggests that far more doctors prescribe or recommend HM to their patients. In a cross-sectional study, more than half of the responding general practitioners (GPs) recommended HM in their day-to-day practice, most of them having no additional qualification for “naturopathy” [5]."  same article as above

  •  France is another progressive country who uses alternative therapies

"Homeopathy is particularly popular in France, where it is the leading alternative therapy. In 1982, 16 percent of the population used homeopathic medicine, rising to 29 percent in 1987, and to 36 percent in 1992 (8). In 2004, 62 percent of French mothers used homeopathic medicines in the previous 12 months (9). A survey of French pharmacists was conducted in 2004 and found that an astounding 94.5 percent reported advising pregnant women to use homeopathic medicines (10).
Homeopathy is popular not only among the French public but also among the French medical community. As many as 70 percent of physicians are receptive to homeopathy and consider it effective, at least 25,000 physicians prescribe homeopathic medicines for their patients. Homeopathy is taught in at least seven medical schools: Besancon, Bordeaux, Lille, Limoges, Marseille, Paris-Nord, and Poitiers, and there are numerous postgraduate training programs. Courses in homeopathy are taught in 21 of France's 24 schools of pharmacy, and also taught in two dental schools, two veterinary medical schools, and three schools of midwivery. "
Please read the full article at the link above.  You need to really see the truth for yourself.
  • There are thousands of double blind research studies from many different countries that prove herbs and alternative therapies do work. Germany, Japan, and Russia are just three of them with published double blind research papers.These research papers are not accepted by the FDA or the AMA in this country. They are ignored or discredited. This is wrong and their suppressing this information is costing patients their lives. 

What about the articles and headlines stating alternative medicine is dangerous and ineffective?

Statistics from the U.S. National Poison Data System prove otherwise. According to a 174-page report just published, the number of people killed in 2009 across America by vitamins, minerals, amino acids or herbal supplements is exactly zero.

Side Effects Possible from herbal medicine

Most of the adverse reactions are due to weight loss supplements and muscle building supplements that are adulterated with drugs or contain caffeine. Other adverse reactions are due to people taking too much of an herbal formula, combining it with prescription medicine, or using it without proper knowledge or guidance.  Too much of cleansing herb will cause loose bowels or irritation in the stomach. Try eating too many prunes and the same thing will happen.  Adding fiber to your diet, when you don't normally eat those foods, will cause stomach distress.  Allergies are possible to any food you eat. You may also be allergic or sensitive to the weeds, dirt, or added fillers found in some junk supplements. Junk supplements are manufactured  by companies who cut corners and offer low quality products.

Deaths Blamed on Alternative Medicine is misleading and false.

Most of the deaths attributed to alternative therapies, are because the patient did not using standard medical therapies. Steve Jobs is an example. Jobs died of pancreatic cancer, a cancer with very few survivors. So using standard medicine he would probably have died too.

Jobs did not die from alternative medicine but from a cancer that did not respond to treatment period.

Pancreatic Cancer is a killer most of the time.  Any death when people are using alternative therapies is stated to be the result of alternative medicine, as if there are no deaths by standard medicine.  Look at the stats above to see that is a lie.

When people die from cancer after chemo and other drugs, they just state they died from the cancer not the standard medicine treatment. The US is blatantly biased toward any treatment other than standard medicine. Parents are put in jail here for using alternative medicine. They are held responsible for their child's death if they did not use standard medicine.  It is fine if they die after using standard medicine, even in cancer where it is known that chemo and radiation are not effective. This is not so in other countries, where is it used by doctors and hospitals such as Germany.

The cancer or bacteria is the cause of the death whether standard or alternative medicine failed to defeat it. 

Here are the stats for pancreatic cancer with standard medicine:

"Pancreatic cancer is one of the faster spreading cancers; only about 4% of patients can expect to survive five years after their diagnosis. Each year, about 44,000 new cases are diagnosed in the U.S., and 37,000 people die of the disease."

"Standard treatments for pancreatic cancer include the common tumor-fighting strategies — surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and, most recently, targeted anticancer drugs that may slightly extend patients’ lives. In 2005, the Food and Drug Administration approved erlotinib, a drug that specifically targets growth factors found on cancer cells, for the treatment of patients with advanced pancreatic cancer who are receiving chemotherapy. The drug has been shown in trials to improve overall survival by 23% after a year when added to routine chemotherapy. The tumors in patients being treated with erlotinib and chemo also develop more slowly than those in patients receiving chemotherapy alone."

This does not tell the whole story. Often cancer patients did later from a different cancer, because their immune system is devastated by the chemo and radiation therapy.  Some therapies are known to be a causative factor in new cancers forming several years later.

So the outcome for pancreatic cancer is not good.  He chose to try alternative therapies which in his case did not work.  He was a liver transplant case as well so his chances were slim on living long period. Liver transplants give the typical patient two years more to live.  Neither standard medicine nor alternative medicine always works on cancer.   You still die.   There is a choice on how you live your last days. Chemo and radiation has horrible side effects. You throw up for days or weeks with the treatments. There is bone pain and memory loss that does not go away. Your immune system is shot so most people succumb to a second bout of cancer later.   People die every day after chemo and radiation.  Cancer often goes undefeated, no matter what therapy is used.

You can go to Germany and other countries to get alternative cancer treatment. Does it always work? NO. Neither does chemo, radiation, and surgery. Again look at the cancer death stats. One of the underground alternative therapies is Esseac.   Look it up to see the history of its use.   Look past the articles that say it is a scam, because it is not.  Look at her original success in Canada before the government went after her. There was a movement by many important people to make it a legal treatment in Canada. Instead the government powers when after her.  

You will find for input from people on the links below who are using Esseac tea for cancer with success but their success is not reported for fear and reprisal from the medical system. Yes, some still die but many do  live or live longer because of it.   It is underground.  

Here are some reports below by people who are using it with success at sites below.  This is not my site, nor is it the Esseac that I sell.   I use a different brand with cat's claw. I think you will be interested in the input at this site.  There is a second site below where people have beaten cancer with alternative medicine. You won't find this page easily.  

Standard Medicine does not want you to know there is any answer other than theirs.  
Billions of dollars is made off of chemo and radiation treatments. Cancer doctors grow rich even as patients die.  Even in cancer patients that are given no chance of survival with standard medicine, that patient will be told not to try alternative medicine.  The American Cancer Society does not want a cure for cancer, for they make millions off the contributions and research money.

"The cancer industry is probably the most prosperous business in the United States. In 2014, there will be an estimated 1,665,540 new cancer cases diagnosed and 585,720 cancer deaths in the US. $6 billion of tax-payer funds are cycled through various federal agencies for cancer research, such as the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The NCI states that the medical costs of cancer care are $125 billion, with a projected 39 percent increase to $173 billion by 2020. 

The simple fact is that the cancer industry employs too many people and produces too much income to allow a cure to be found. All of the current research on cancer drugs is based on the premise that the cancer market will grow, not shrink."

Some sites where cancer survivors have told their story of success:

An interview with a holistic doctor on Esseac

Esseac is one of the alternative therapies used against cancer.  It does not work on some, others it does. Standard medicine is not successful either as evidenced by the death stats above.

So I hope this blog gave you reason to review your stand on herbal medicine and alternative therapies.   It may save your life at some point.  If I ever get cancer, I will take my chances and life with alternative therapies not standard medicine.  We all have choices on how we will live and how we will die.  It should be our decision to make, not some doctor or the government.

Essiac Tea-Its History and Health Benefits

I want to tell you about Essiac tea. I have been using it for years just to support my liver and it seems to give me energy.  I don't even put it in juice anymore. 

The original formula came from Rene Caisse in Ontario, Canada in 1888. Yes, it has been around for a long time. She learned about it from a patient who had received help from a Chippawa Indian neighbor for her cancer. She began giving the formula to her sick patients with cancer. Many were cured. Several physicians using her formula successfully tried to get it cleared for general use in the government. This failed. She eventually turned the formula over to the Resperin Corporation of Ontario for $1.00, hoping they could get the clinical trials and studies needed to get it cleared. They never did get it cleared as a drug but its use has helped thousands over the years. It is one of the best bets in alternative medicine for cancer.

Does it always work? No.  Neither does chemo or radiation work in many cases and destroys the immune system in the therapy.  Nothing is 100 per cent a cure. I would place my bets on Essiac any time.

Have I used it? Yes, but not for cancer. I have talked to others who have. I used Essiac with the addition of Cat's claw to reduce my fibroid tumors. It took time but it worked. I avoided a hysterectomy. I still take it often to keep my liver and blood cleaned out. I fell off steps years ago onto a wrought iron plant stand. I swelled up and was in severe pain. I had no insurance so treated myself. That fall damaged my kidneys and liver function. I took Essiac for a year after than fall and I recovered for the most part. On occasion, I still  need it to keep them working properly. I know it works and it is very effective. If I ever do get cancer, I will take it for that. You either believe in alternative medicine or you just talk about it. I live that view. I use alternative medicine and know it works. You must use the right herbs for the right problem. So lab tests can be useful and exams as well. You must take enough of the herbs, often enough, and for enough time to secure healing. Your body does not heal on your time table. The quality of the herbs cannot be understated. It is all necessary to get the end result....healing. I am going to be talking about herbs and alternative cancer treatments. It is hard to find on websites. You should have options even if you choose not to use them. You have the right to that knowledge in making your decision.So over the next few weeks, we will go over some of these.

Essiac, the original formula, contains Sheep Sorrel (Rumex acetosella), Burdock (arctium lappa), slippery elm (ulmus fulva), and turkey rhubarb or rheum palmatum.  

The version I take contains Cats Claw and Watercress as well. I personally feel the addition of Cats claw and the watercress makes the formula even more effective.

Sheep Sorrel is used to clean out the blood. It helps a weak stomach, stimulates appetite, and is used against nausea and vomiting.

Burdock medicinal properties lie in the roots of this plant. It acts as a diuretic and diaphoretic. It also cleans out the blood and aids digestion.  It is used with sore throats and coughs.

Slippery Elm is a tree where its bark is medicinal. Slippery elm helps heal gut and digestion problems. It soothes and helps ulcers. It can be made into a gruel and eaten for food. It is nutritious. It heals mucous membranes in the gut and stomach. It is gentle enough to give to babies or baby animals with diarrhea.

Turkey Rhubarb grows in China and Tibet. It root is medicinal. It contains tonic and digestive properties. It has been used successfully with dysentery.

The Ezzeac I usually take is by Nature's Unique. It is the brand I used when I had problems with fibroid tumors.

I do sell it  here on this page, Ezzeac Plus with Cats Claw in 32 ounces concentrated on my website......its the best brand on the market, in my opinion.

A treatment plan for cancer involves dietary changes and immune system support. Essiac is one part of that plan I would use if I had cancer. I would go to a holistic doctor and have his help with my treatment. There are treatment centers that  use herbs and alternative therapies.....and can give you help to beat cancer.The main problem with them is that they do not take insurance. Most people do not have the cash to do that. That is the sad part. They are kept from help through alternative medicine because they have no money.  It is the way it is here in the US. In many other countries, standard and alternative therapies are used together to treat patients by doctors. They combine the best of both to give the patient the best chance for healing.

Why the FDA is Still A Huge Threat to Alternative Medicine

I am reprinting this News Release so that you understand that we are still in a war with the FDA and its overreach of power.  We may have won a small battle, but the big battle is still ahead.



June 22, 2012

          The decision of the FDA has not been officially announced, but Senate staff confirms that Senators Tom Harkin, and Orrin Hatch were informed in a personal meeting on June 19th with FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg and Deputy Commissioner Mike Taylor that a revision may be attempted in the future. The NPA and several others immediately sent out news releases claiming it as their victory while also applauding this FDA reconsideration; but the National Health Federation and other health-freedom organizations are not applauding for several reasons:
  • Let’s Not Applaud the FDA for Doing What They Should Have Done Years Ago.  We all knew the FDA had this card to play. Amazingly, one industry association is proclaiming that “This action by the FDA shows that they are committed to an open dialogue” and that the FDA will be releasing a revised draft guidance that “the agency hopes will provide greater clarity and address concerns that the document is not in line with the intent of the DSHEA statute.” Really! So where has the FDA dialogue been for the past 17 years on issuing a Guidance? Why weren’t supplement stakeholders, industry, and consumers consulted in the first place before the July 2011 Guidance was issued?
  • This is No Time to Beg for Crumbs.  With the backlash the FDA received from consumers, manufacturers, health-stores, and supplement manufacturers after its incredibly off-the-wall July 2011 draft Guidance came out, this option of revision (no matter how small the revisions), was anticipated by the NHF. This was exactly why the Federation came out with H.R.3380 legislation in August 2011, so that we would not have to beg for “crumbs” from the FDA during its (if any) revisions.  H.R.3380, the Dietary Supplement Protection Act (DSPA) introduced by Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN), moves the defining date of October 15, 1994 (separating “old” supplements from “new” ones), to a more realistic and recent date of January 1, 2007. By this one simple act, the Bill encompasses within that previous grandfathering clause all of the “new” dietary-supplement ingredients that have appeared in that 13-year interval and that would otherwise be subject to the onerous requirements of the FDA Guidance.  The bill drastically narrows the arbitrary power the FDA wants to exercise over new supplements and thereby protects thousands of supplements that have been safely consumed from being removed from the marketplace.
  • The Industry Historically Loses at the Negotiating Table.  Typically, the FDA wins over health freedom whenever there are simply negotiations between it and the industry or between it and consumers.  Do we really expect it to be any different this time?  How many times do we have to be slapped in the face before we realize that we will be slapped yet again?  Make no mistake about it: The FDA’s goal is to usurp our health rights as they have continuously done for decades.  The FDA at revision time is still ignoring the true intent of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA).  Any revisions to the draft Guidance will just be cosmetic changes. More lipstick!  Every time we let the FDA do this to us, we set a precedent and their strength gets stronger and ours weaker.  In the Federation’s comments submitted to the FDA in December 2011 (found here) about the July draft Guidance, we urged the FDA to withdraw the Guidance.  We knew the odds of this actually happening were slim as the Guidance is nothing more than the FDA’s further efforts to help its pharmaceutical-industry friends by squelching supplements and the competitive threat they pose to drugs.
  • The Regal FDA Has Thrown Us a Crumb and Industry Cheers. This latest development sets the stage for the continuation of regulatory misinterpretation, confusion, and misguided enforcement by the FDA. H.R.3380 is a longer-term solution to effectively addressing these issues – not a band-aid or begging with hat-in-hand approach.  It also keeps the pressure right where it belongs – on the FDA.
  • It’s Way Too Early to Announce Victory.  What is now being touted as a “monumental breakthrough” in FDA cooperation is in reality just the old Washington cliché’ of “you are either at the table or on the menu” with an out-of-control FDA bureaucratic and Federal government anti-individual liberty philosophy at play. More importantly, being “at the table” ensures that you can also have your seat at the table pulled out from under you and wind up as the entrée anyway. For example, the FDA announcement singled out the issue of establishing an agreed-upon list of “grandfathered ingredients” as an area where the FDA would like to “begin working with industry” to resolve. Industry has already admitted that the records of ingredients on the market before 1994 no longer exist. Supplements and their ingredients on the market before October 15, 1994 were “grandfathered in” by DSHEA and therefore exempted from having to prove in any way that they are safe.  So what happens when agreement is not reached with the FDA in these upcoming talks? Obviously, the FDA position is that these new dietary ingredients will have to be removed from sale to Americans until they have been “proven” safe to consume. We lose, not the FDA.
  • We Still Need to Keep The Pressure On FDA.  Recently, the FDA decision to send out warning letters to ten companies with “new” dietary ingredients, even though the draft Guidance had not even yet been finalized, is just another example of why our Dietary Supplement Protection Act (H.R.3380) is needed and needed now.  Just hoping that negotiations with the FDA will produce tangible results is foolish.  Even attorney Jonathan Emord has acknowledged that “substantial changes are rare” on the part of the FDA.  Pressure must be kept on the FDA.
          The Federation asks that true supporters of health freedom not settle for FDA crumbs during the revision time (and who knows how many years that will be?), but support H.R.3380 and request that your Representative co-sponsor our Bill.  This does not mean that Industry should not talk with the FDA, only that it should do so from a position of strength and not weakness.
          We sincerely hope that talks with the FDA will produce results, but does anyone really think that they can trust the good intentions of the FDA? As NHF President Scott Tips says, “To pin all of our hopes on the good graces and good will of the FDA is the height of folly.  If they had such good will, then where were they for the last 17 years?  In fact, where were they in ‘listening to the Industry and consumers’ prior to drafting their Guidance on NDIs?   Nowhere.  They were MIA. And so, now, just because they have thrown us a scrap, we are to believe that they have suddenly seen the light?  Are we really that gullible?
          The Federation wants more than revisions to this draft Guidance and we don’t want to settle.  Remember, as we’ve always said, “politicians don’t see the light, they only feel the heat.”  It’s time to renew the pressure on the FDA by passing the Dietary Supplement Protection Act (H.R.3380).  Contrary to rumors, H.R.3380 can pass.  Keep up the pressure!
