Ours is the only pre-made formula that contains the Sheep sorrel roots (25%) and not just the plant! Remember,a vital part of the Essiac decoction according to all accounts by those closest to and working with Rene Caisse, was the sheep sorrel ROOT (whole plant). No one and I mean virtually no one is including it in their “genuine” “original" formulations. Don’t be fooled! If it says sheep sorrel (but not root) it doesn’t contain the root!
We sell pre-made 32 oz Essiac with whole sheep sorrel plant (75% plant parts n 25% root). All herbs organically grown or wildcrafted in unpolluted areas in the U.S.
Dr. Frederick Banting, the co-discoverer of insulin became interested in Essiac and even offered Nurse Caisse research facilities to test it. According to Rene, Dr. Banting stated that "Essiac must actuate the pancreatic gland into normal functioning". Even today diabetics are using Essiac to improve their condition and many have gone off insulin entirely. (For more information on diabetes and Essiacread the Dr. Marijah McCain interview.)
