FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTONS
ABOUT ESSIAC ®
Why should you purchase Essiac® when there are cheaper alternatives on the market?
While it is true that Essiac® is slightly higher priced than some counterfeit products available in the market, Essiac® is the original Rene M. Caisse herbal formula and it is of premium quality herbs*.
How can I tell if the product is a counterfeit?
Rene Caisse's picture and her authorized signature must be on the box or bottle. The prices will most likely be lower on the counterfeit products. The original recipe consists of Indian Rhubarb (Root Rheum Officinale) and not Turkey Rhubarb (Rheum palmatum). Many companies claim to have an improved formula. There is no such thing because only Essiac with the registered trademark is the original proprietary formula from nurse Rene M Caisse.
Many of the alternative products, which are available in the marketplace, boast of having formulas the same as Essiac®. Why should you choose Essiac®?
There are many counterfeits of Essiac® in the marketplace. Whether they claim to be an improved formula, an enhanced product, or whether they claim to have Essiac® under another name or spelling of the name, they are all counterfeits making false and irresponsible claims. The manufacturers of these counterfeits are not selling Essiac®. Remember, it is impossible for a counterfeit manufacture, let alone improve upon a proprietary formula that they do not possess.*
How much Essiac® should you use?
The suggested amounts are listed on the product labels and on the secure order page.*
Can Essiac® be used with other products?
Please consult your healthcare practitioner for more information.*
How does it taste?
Essiac® tastes like a herbal tea. It can be sweetened with honey, if desired.
