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 Amazon.com or at ReneCaisseTea.com.
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!
