How would you react if you were told that a simple cheap 4-ingredient herbal tea can be miraculously healing, and can even cure cancer and AIDS?
The ingredients and recipe of this miraculous tea came originally from an Ojibway Native American medicine man in remote northern Canada. However, the name is related to this decent nurse that used it. Essiac, was derived from spelling her surname -Caisse backwards.
Initially, her treatments cost as much as patients could give, an egg, or two, and various products, and rejected none. After 1937, her services were made absolutely free, she accepted no fees!
Therefore, her reward for her successful treatments was only the health of the patients. Eventually, she was even tormented by the Canadian Health Ministry, and betrayed by a private corporation while she tried to legalize this tea as a cancer cure.
In 1922, when Rene worked as an RN in a Canadian hospital, she had an elderly patient who had survived breast cancer 30 years earlier and was living with her husband in remote northern Canadian mining camp at that time.
She claimed that her breasts should have been removed, but she rejected the surgery and returned to her husband. In the area where they lived, she had earlier come upon an Ojibway medicine man who promised that he could cure her cancer.
