In 1922, Rene Caisse, a Canadian nurse, made a discovery that would change her and the course of cancer therpy.

Caisse received the formula for an herbal remedy through a patient who had been successfully treated for breast cancer by a Native American medicine man. With this remedy, which she called Essiac, Caisse would go on to treat thousands of patients at an incredible recovery rate of 80%!

"I have taken ESSIAC every day since my diagnosis and my recent examination has given me a clear bill of health. I endorse this therapy, for I have in fact cured my own cancer, the original site of which was the lower bowel, through ESSIAC alone."

Charles A. Brusch, M.D.
President John F. Kennedy's personal physician

"In this compact and intelligently presented book, Cynthia Olsen goes a long way toward giving Essiac its proper due 'as prehaps not a universal cure, but a recognized remedy' in the treatment of cancer. [This book] provides the historical context of this herbal treatment along with a materia medica on the four herbs that make up Essiac. She never bullies her readers. Instead, she provides enough information so that the individual can make up his or her own decisions regarding use of Essiac. In this vein, Olsen correctly, I think provides a framwork for working with herbs (as opposed to pharmaceutical drugs) in the treatment of disease."
