Essiac A Modern Folk Remedy – FULL LENGTH

At long last, the full-length version of this October 14, 2010 seminar given by Mali Klein, Essiac researcher and author of the companion bookThe Complete Essiac Essentials (softcover, 192 pages), is being made public.

Essiac is a four herb tea that was developed from a Native American formula by Rene Caisse in the 1920s. The formula contains Burdock (Arctium lappa), Sheep sorrel (Rumex acetosella), Slippery elm (Ulmus rubra), and Turkey rhubarb (Rheum palmatum).

Together with her writing partner Sheila Snow, Mali has authored a total of five books on Rene Caisse and Essiac, that stand unparalleled as the most factual, accurate account of Rene Caisse’s life and work. The latest one, Black Root Medicine the Original Native American Essiac Formula, was released September 2014. It focuses on the original Native American formula, which contained 8 herbs – the above four plus Red clover (Trifolium pratense), Watercress (Rorippa Nasturtium-Aquaticum, Periwinkle (Vinca major), and Goldthread (Coptis trifolia), all roots except for the Slippery elm, which uses the inner bark.

Mali shares practical information on how to grow and harvest the Essiac herbs and how to make and take the various Essiac formulae in The Complete Essiac Essentials, which was released in 2011. Both books can be found on or at

Mali experienced Essiac’s positive impact on her husband’s quality of life as they journeyed together with his cancer diagnosis. She set up the UK Essiac charity, Clouds Trust, which has now been in operation for over 15 years. Enjoy this recording as Mali shares information and insights on how to live with a tough diagnosis and even be empowered by it!

  1. iceland? where near volcanoes I wonder, tho not that important. Inspiring
    work thx!

  2. Please type the name of the herbs in the information, because I cannot
    understand the name of the first one.

  3. I don’t understand…did her husband take the Essiac tea? can the recipe
    be written as a recipe…I can not find it anywhere.

  4. Mali’s husband did take the tea. The quality of his life during the time
    he had left was transformed. The full story is contained in Mali Klein’s
    book A Future Beyond the Sun (1997). The best place to find the formula,
    tea preparation instructions, and much more is in Mali Klein’s book The
    Complete Essiac Essentials (2010). With Essiac information it is best to
    get one of the Snow/Klein Essiac books because they provide
    well-researched, first hand information and are very well-written. The
    internet can be really time-consuming and is definitely rife with
    misinformation about Essiac and Rene Caisse – but has
    good info ;)

  5. Much is made of the indian origin of this blend of herbs. They can’t have
    known about it long – if at all – since other than elm, they are not native
    species of Canada.

  6. She mentions 8 herbs? i’m thoroughly confused… 4 or 8 ?!
    ah.. Thanks for explaining in the video comment.

  7. brain tumor use essential oil frankincense, base of neck roof of mouth
    along the front of the neck. often.

  8. The Indians did not have a mode of injection. So what is the difference?
    All the herbs?

  9. Yep, Rene Caisse refined it to be injectable, so that it could be more
    widely available. The Indians made a decoction (concentrate), which Rene
    Caisse also did, sometimes giving both the injection and the oral dose, and
    sometimes one or the other.

  10. To prepare this : All you have to do is gather any number of “Medicinal
    Herbs” combine them in any proportion and try not to kill your self by
    “over medicating”.
    I absolutely guarantee, Your concoction will be as “Beneficial” at Curing
    cancer as Essiac Tea. -{ Posted , ON Behalf of the Thousands of people who
    put their Faith in this and died. }

  11. I have a friend with MS. I got her on this tea. She burst with energy from
    the first or second day and she is full of energy at our very physical job
    and has lost much weight because of that energy level. She pushes herself
    at work which is ten hours a day, picking orders for am extremely busy
    dot-com company. She looks very very good. After two months or so on this,
    she went for an MRI. To her great surprise and with tears of joy, she
    received the news that she had no new lesions and there was no growth in
    those that exist. I am excited to know what mystery this tea will continue
    to perform for her.

  12. Oates ? do not eat oats, check what Dr Peter Glidden has to say about whole
    grains and oats.

  13. Essiac doesn’t cure anything, it simply returns the immune system to a
    healthy state where it can do it’s job properly. If we go back to our old
    ways and stop taking Essiac then the cancer will return.
