I brewed Essiac Tea * cups of water to half cup of the mixed dry herbs. My little minature pincher had a boil on his groin. It was frightening looking with a bright red ring around it about an inch out. I made a compress of essiac tea dreges (the leftovers you strain out). I put it on him for the first night for about 20 minutes. The next night the same and it started to weep. We put 3% h202 on it and it sizzled, we did this twice with a q tip. then I gently squeezed it and lots of gross white stuff came out. previous to this this lump was hard. It seems the essiac tea liqufied it and allowed it to come out.
Just to see, I offered my dog a taste of the tea dreges right from the bag not mixed in his food and he took a bite and actually ate it. I am going to start giving him the tea to get rid of a lump on his lip that I am concerned about. Will let you know.

Our cat, Jacob, was diagnosed with osteocarcoma (bone cancer) in 2000, and was given 3 months to live. We were told the cancer would metasticize and spread to his lungs very quickly, as this was the most aggressive kind of cancer. We started giving him Essiac tea, one teaspoonful in his wet food twice a day, and the cancer did not metasticize. Jacob in fact lived a happy life until November 2005, when he passed from cardiac arrest at age 15. I have always wanted to share this information, but until I found Earth Clinic, I was never sure how to get the message out there! This is an amazing resource tool - thank you for being there!

What dosage of Essiac tea have people been successful with? The website essiacfacts.com says most people had more success with higher than the recommended dosage for pets.I have seen other post here which say you should stick to the recommended.The dosage for adults on the bottle of Floressence says 2ounces of water to 2 ounces of tea. For my cat's weight, the website says it should be a little under a teaspoon of this.
Anyone know something definitive on the dosage? Thx
Essiac Tea for Cats
Hi - I am trying to purchase the right form of essiac remedy for my 13 year old cat with a tumor originating from his jawbone. I am using cortizone as a painkiller at the moment - he is still in fine form. I decided not to opt for surgery, reconstructive jaw surgery and chemo as the vet said he would have 6 more months at most. the link you mention to buy doesn't work - and as the use of his jaw is reduced by the tumour - I think powder onto food will be better than syringe. Thanks in advance for your help, Rachel
Hello fellow members. I have read the posts about the Essiac 8-herb tea as being the cure for pet cancer. Yet I have found that the Original Essiac company has a Beware disclaimer warning people that the 8-herb tea is NOT the original Rene Caisse's product or formula.
Brusch - Paulhus 8 herb formula is not Essiac by Nurse Rene Caisse. So why are the Paulhus' calling their product Essiac?
The true Canadian Rene Caisse formula called ESSIAC consists of only 4 herbs. Don't be confused by the 8 herb formula developed by Dr. Brusch years after Rene Caisse had passed away in 1978.
Do your homework.
Our pets lives are at stake. If people are posting untruthful information as a way to promote their home business base, that is really sad.
I just discovered that my loving cat has cancer and I sure don't want to be messing around with a knock off of the original Rene Caisse's formula. I called my health food store and they only cary the original 4 herb formulas. That speaks volumes to me and it also should to you.
I hope the Earth Clinic staff looks into this info and sorts it out, as it could cost our lovely pets their lives.
Wish me luck, I want to save my kitty's life.

Hi. Our 14 year old cat has been diagnosed with a High grade Lymphoma on her neck. It is (was) Huge. She was diagnosed 4 weeks ago and has had a couple of rough years with lots of immune system problems which we have been managing with Prednisolone only. I bought some 4 herb Essiac Tea last week and she has been taking it with food. I keep her on chicken or fish with occasional cat foods. She is obviously hungry because the Prednisolone ups the appetite. She has been a little up and down and yesterday I kept a close eye on her because she wasn't eating. Later on however she ate 3 small meals. This morning she was up and ready for breakfast and has had 2 small meals since. Her behaviour was brighter. I had checked the lump yesterday and it was hard and so massive in her neck. I can feel some very small soft nodules in other parts of her neck too. However this morning this tumor is not as big (I think I'm going mad!! ). I can still feel other small lumps but she is so much brighter today. I don't know what's going on but I do have little hope for her but I will keep going and update.

I posted in here a couple of weeks back and have got no replies. I am desperate for some help and answers. Maloo my 8/9yr old cat was diagnosed with lymphoma. Not too sure which type. He was sneezing and had blood coming out his nose. Vet put it down to uri as he had one last year. He has also got fiv. Anyway after antibiotics which cleared the blood and sneezing for a week or two it came back. So back to vet and $1,600 later after nasal exploration and biopsy sent off I get a phone call to say it's lymphoma. I refused chemo. I have been reading all the great results of Essiac. So I started him on it. 5ml with 5ml water twice a day. He had a fair bit of blood come out first two days. Still sneezing and some mucus snot. Saturday just gone he came out with blood all over his nose. He started to eat after taking him off antibiotics which caused him to not want to eat. Put some weight back on. However last few days he has been so lifeless, lost weight again, fur looks dull and his third eyelids are coming out more and won't really eat.
Help!!!! Please what can I do? Continue the tea? Tomorrow will be his 3rd week on it. I want my baby boy to be around for many more years. Please
Hello, I just got the results from my vet of the x-ray she sent to a lab. It confirms that my little Honey Bee, part Chihuahua, that the lump on her hind leg is a mast cell tumor. I have some Essiac capsules that say two twice a day (for humans) for daily use. Then it adds, three, three times a day for "other situations". I'd like to start her right away. Does anyone know how to dose a sixteen pound dog with the capsules? Thank you!
p.s. Has anyone had a mast cell removed surgically, and how did that go?
Hi, my 9yo dog is diagnosed with tumor in his bladder. I changed his diet to home cooked brown rice and simmered free ranged chicken and blended broccoli and shitake. I read many grave things about this kind of tumor, I am thinking to try essiac tea on him but confused where I should get it from? I live in Asia, I will need to order online either from US or Canada and shipped it to my country. So want to make sure I get the best essiac tea for my baby.

Better But With Side Effects

Thank you very much. Barb

To receive all the benefits of Essiac tea, it must be left to steep 12 hours in a covered pot.
Hi! I am loving this website and am so appreciative of the helpful information it contains! Thank you!!
In December of 2016 my almost 12 year old male terrier mix was diagnosed with a mass in his "cheek"... a terrible place to try and treat because he won't let me near it! He had the mass removed the week of Christmas and I opted to not have it biopsied because I knew I would not subject him to chemo/radiation, and the cost was already very high for the surgery. Prior to the surgery, I started making his food and treating him with turmeric, coconut oil, medicinal mushroom powder, food grade H2O2, and everything I could think of to try and boost his immune system and possibly shrink the mass. After the surgery, I continued with the same routine. At his last check up, the mass had already started to come back... so I started Rascal on essaic tea. This was about a month ago. I thought at first that the tumor was drying up, but then it seemed to grow larger and he had a very stinky clump of fur/dried blood... that formed and drove him crazy. Every time I tried to get near him to try and treat it, he would run. Fortunately, it fell off (FINALLY) the beginning of this week, and underneath is a VERY bright red spot that seems to be "swelling". Should I continue with the essaic? I am trying to get him to sleep on the side where I can see it so that I can try and drop some castor oil on it... I have also ordered Artemisinin and K9 Immunity which will be here tomorrow! Please help! He has a GREAT appetite, his eyes are bright and he doesn't appear to be in pain, although he is licking his paws incessantly... my funds are limited, but I am desperate to try and get rid of the cancer. We just moved back to Nashville 6 months ago and lost our sweet female dog 10 days after we got here... we were devastated. The thought of losing another beloved pet makes me so sad.
My 11 year old Boxer mix has been coughing for almost two months. X-rays show a "mass" on her right lung, most likely "primary pulmonary neoplasia". Did anyone had any experience using the Essiac Tea on these types of lung tumors? I would appreciate any feedback!
My Journey with Jinx and Her Cancer
May 2015 noticed large lump - came up overnight about the size of a half golf ball; took Jinx to vet next day. She thought it was an abscess so cut it open to drain and put in drain tube. When she started she noticed that it didn't have the consistency of an abscess and sent the tissue to be biopsied.When the results came back it turned out to be a very aggressive type of fibrosarcoma. Possibly vaccine related.
One week later I took Jinx to the Oncology specialist, Dr. Macy, He said they could remove the left hind quarter; but, there was a 50/50 chance it would come back. We decided to try to slow it down with medication (Proxicam) and keep her comfortable. She was put on Proxicam and given a chemo drug (Lomastine) one every 3 weeks along with blood tests to check her white blood cell count.
This caused the tumor to shrink substantially; but it started to get bigger again after about 3 months. I had started her on 1/2 capsule of Essiac tea, twice a day, at the same time. They tried three other chemo drugs during the next 4 months; non of them seemed to slow the growth of the tumor. She was taking the essiac all through this. She never had any adverse reaction to any of the chemo.
In December 2015, when the tumor was getting very large(about the size of my fist) I decided to gradually increase her dosage of Essiac and the Dr. stopped the chemo treatments and said he didn't think there was any more they could do. I was told to keep her on the Proxicam and that I would know when it was time to put her to sleep....... she would stop eating and groonming.
It is now January 2016
I had increased the dose of essiac to 1 1/2 capsule twice a day. The tumor started to get very soft in the center (it had been a hard solid mass) and in a few days started to open and seep. At first it was a light clear reddish fluid, then turning clear. At first there was no odor at all. After a couple of days it seemed to start to smell and she got quite lethargic. Still eating though. It is now completely open and the tumor looks to be receding.
I called the vet and started her on Amoxicillin. She immediately improved and the odor of the drainage went away. It continuing to drain and has decreased in size by about 1/3 (2 weeks after the chemo was stopped.) I have been spraying it with Veterycin a few times a day to help keep it from getting infected. I really think she had the infection in her body before this started to drain; but I'm not sure.
She is acting so much more normal and it appears to me that this tumor is purging itself. The hole are filled with a substance that looks very much like chicken fat only white. It doesn't seem to hurt and Jinx is cleaning regularly. I think this is removing the necrotic skin as it dies. She has really had a boost energy in the last few days.
Has anyone else had a similar experience? I would like to see what I might expect next.

I have a 11 years old Golden Retriver Tahoe. She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma on her right front leg two weeks ago. After the initial diagnosis, shoe couldn't walk anymore and limped badly. The only time she would stand up and walked a little bit is two meal time and potty time. She lost weight, had reduced appetite even though I started to feed her homemade meal after the diagnosis. Most time she just lie in her bed and seemed in pain and listless. Three days ago, I started to give her 60ml Essiac tea twice daily on empty stomach. I can see her condition improved just after one dose of the tea. After two doses of the tea, she walked outside with me for two blocks after dinner. This was the first time she ever walked since the initial diagnosis. Now, after three days of taking Essiac tea, her limp improved a lot. She walks twice a day, finishes her meal completely, go potty twice a day, and seemed gain back some weight. I am so grateful of the site caninecancer introducing Essiac tea to me and my lovely dog Tahoe. I am keeping my fingers acrossd and hoping Tahoe will make a full recovery and put the cancer into remission.
