A Native American Herbal Tea

What is Ojibwa Tea of Life?

herb_montage

Ojibwa Tea is an essiac tea four-herb blend that is pure, non-irradiated, organically grown and affordable. Essiac (pronounced “es-ee-ack”) is an herb tea formula attributed to Canadian nurse Rene Caisse (reen-case) of Bracebridge Ontario, Canada. Rene claimed a miner’s wife seemingly cured of a serious health malady by an herb recipe given to her by “a very old Indian medicine man.” In 1922 Rene named the formula “Essiac” after the backward spelling of her own last name, Caisse. Rene Caisse spent her life working with this herb tea; she died in 1978 at the age of 90. For a time, the Canadian Minister of Health allowed her to treat certain patients in her own Bracebridge clinic, if their doctors had certified them as terminal. According to Rene, many of the people she treated reported they experienced a positive change in their wellness from using this remedy. Others claimed living with a terminal illness was made more bearable.

Native American Medicine: Native Americans as well as most indigenous cultures believe Medicine, or the power to heal, is generated by Spiritual Practice. Medicine is prayer and ceremony. Medicine reaches into many modalities of healing – that is the use of massage, sweat baths, mud baths, mineral hot springs, decoctions of herbs, roots and barks, sunrays, pinewood air and smoke, and faith. Medicine is the respect for all life. The tea and packing are done the old way with the practice of giving back to Mother Earth and prayers for health. We treat this herbal formula as a gift of nature with the intention to help all on a journey to wellness. In Native American culture, nothing is done without prayer, whether one is beginning a new day, or conducting a ceremony. Treatment of oneself must first start with the Spirit, then the mind and lastly the body, according to how we were created. Resources and literature abound in regards to this healthful remedy.

Ojibwa Tea of Life Mission Statement: Our aim is to provide quality herbs and herbal products at the best value to the customer. Additionally, we strive to provide resources and information to assist people in making good decisions for self-responsible health care.

About our Formulas: Our herbal formulas are developed to share the elements of Native American and other indigenous remedies, as well as freshly created herbal teas and tonics.

When herbs are brought together in a formula, they enter into a relationship, creating something new, more than the sum of separate ingredients.

Rene_M_Caisse2

Our products are pure, non-irradiated, organically grown and affordable. Essiac (pronounced “es-ee-ack”) is an herb tea formula attributed to Canadian nurse Rene Caisse (reen-case) of Bracebridge Ontario, Canada. Rene claimed the formula was given to her by a miner’s wife who was seemingly cured of breast cancer by an herb recipe. These herbs were given to the woman by “a very old Indian medicine man.”

In the mid 1920s, Rene Caisse was head nurse at the Sisters of Providence Hospital in a northern Ontario town. While on duty, Rene was bathing an elderly lady and noticed that one of her breasts had a lot of scar tissue on it. Upon questioning the lady, she learned that the women had advanced breast cancer 30 years earlier. The woman further explained that she had met a old Indian medicine man who told her he could cure her cancer. She said that she had no money at that time, and didn’t want to have an operation anyway, so she went to see the Indian. He showed her certain herbs growing in the area and told her to pick them and make a tea and to drink it every day.

She had no reoccurrence of cancer to that day, 30 years later.

In 1922, Rene named the formula “Essiac” after the backward spelling of her own last name, Caisse. The recipe from “a very old Indian Medicine Man,” allows for many stories and theories. There has never been “proof” of the actual tribal heritage of the Medicine Man who offered this formula, as many Native American Tribes lived in the area at the time.

Rene Caisse spent her life working with this herb tea, until she died in 1978 at the age of 90. For a time, the Canadian Minister of Health allowed Rene to treat certain terminally ill patients in her Bracebridge clinic. According to Rene, many of the people she treated reported they were helped by the remedy while others claimed living with their illness was made more bearable.


Essiac Herbs Description

Original four herb Rene Caisse essiac tea

The four Essiac herbs

The original essiac decoction is a blend of four herbs in certain proportions.

  • 35% Sheep Sorrel (leaf, stem, root and seed)
  • 54% Burdock Root (and seed)
  • 9% Slippery Elm bark
  • 2% Turkey (or Indian) Rhubarb

Some manufactures add other herbs, such as Kelp, Milk Thistle, Red Clover, and Cat’s Claw, among others.

However, ask your nutritional consultant if the essiac brand you are purchasing contains irritating or stimulating herbs. You need to know, because these types of additives cannot be safely taken every day, whereas brands without stimulating or irritating additions can be safely taken every day. Each of the original four herbs has been used for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Unlike many herbal formulations, these herbs have no irritating effect as used in this formula. General properties of each herb are listed here.

Sheep Sorrel (Rumex acetosella)

herb-sheepsorrel2

Carotenoids, a component of Sheep Sorrel, are present at a concentration of approximately 8 – 12%. Beta carotene (a strong antioxidant member of the carotenoids) is converted to Vitamin A in the liver. Vitamin A has been shown to strengthen the immune system by aiding production of white blood cells. White blood cells are what attack many of the body’s harmful intruders, including cancer.

Sheep Sorrel is rich in Vitamin A, B complex, C, D, K, and E. Its minerals include significant levels of calcium, iron, magnesium, silicon, sulphur, zinc, maganese, iodine, and copper.

Sheep Sorrel is also rich in chlorophyll, which increases oxygen content in the blood. High levels of blood oxygen can increase the body’s action against many invasive conditions. Research at the Linus Pauling Institute and a M.D. Anderson Cancer Hospital has shown chlorophyll enhances the body’s immunity against certain carcinogens (cancer-causing substances) and has been shown to strengthen the immune system. According to these studies, it appears to be effective against chromosome damage — which is considered to be a precursor to cancer.

Sheep Sorrel is rich in potassium oxalate. It aids digestion, and has been reported to relieve stomach hemorrhage and jaundice.

We include the whole plant – root, leaf, and seed – in our formula.

Burdock Root (Arctium lappa)

herb-burdock2

This herb is the best known for its beneficial effect on the skin. It increases circulation to the skin and helps to detoxify (cleanse) the epidermal tissues. Many users report exceptional beauty and glow of the skin from its use. “Some of the conditions which may benefit from the root are: psoriasis, eczema, acne, boils, sties, carbuncles, ulcers of the stomach…” Similar to garlic, the root has been reported to destroy bacteria and fungus cultures. Anti-tumor properties have also been noted. Nagoya University researchers in Japan found that the root helps reduce cell mutations.

Another beneficial feature of this root is its action as a “blood purifier.” This term means the formula helps eliminate toxins for the blood and lymphatic system. Its action is also reported to work on the respiratory and urinary systems. The liver, gall bladder, kidneys, and digestive system benefit from the properties of Burdock Root. It may also help with elimination of excess fluids from the body.

Burdock Root is rich in vitamins B-complex and E. Its trace minerals include potassium, phosphorous, chromium, cobalt, iron, magnesium, silicon, zinc and sodium.

Because of its diuretic action, conditions of arthritis, rheumatism, and sciatia may be improved. Many users report a rapid decrease in swollen ankles even if the condition hasn’t responded well to other treatments.

Burdock Root contains inulin (not to be confused with insulin) which helps regulate sugar (glucose) in metabolism. Diabetics may be helped and Inulin has also been shown to possess exceptional restorative properties. It increases immunity by improving the efficiency of white blood cells.

Slippery Elm Bark (Ulmus fulva)

herb-slipperyelm2

This herb’s main constituent is mucilage. Mucilage is a gum dissolved in the bark’s juices. This material has extraordinary cleansing properties. It has been reported to reduce the pain of ulcers – the mucilage coats any area it passes through.

Slippery Elm Bark has a lubricating property which helps protect membranes linings and joints. Relief of inflamed areas is commonly reported. An antibiotic and anti-microbial effect has also been reported along with an ability to remove toxins from the body.

Turkey Rhubarb Root (Rheum palmatum)

herb-turkeyrhubarb2This root has been used in China for more than 2,000 years! Turkey Rhubarb has impressive detoxifying properties, especially for the liver. The root also has antibiotic, anti-microbial, and anti-tumor properties. Although the original formula called for Indian Rhubarb Root (Rheum officianale), that particular variety typically can’t be obtained in the USA without chemical contamination. Turkey Rhubarb is a good substitute.

Quality of Essiac Herbs in our Ojibwa Tea

Our Ojibwa Tea  is pure, non-irradiated, and certified organic or wildcrafted.

herb_montage
The herbs that the Native people used were gathered mostly from the area in which they lived. However, the Ojibwa were one of the few tribes that traveled to obtain whatever herbs necessary for their medicinal needs. We work with a network of certified organic domestic farms and growers to ensure the best possible organic/non-irradiated herbs. Our herbs are gathered with respect, at the proper time of day and season. They are either used immediately or carefully dried and stored. All of our products are crafted form the finest ingredients and with the highest integrity!

Our Ojibwa Tea of Life™ (herb tea) is hand-packed and our Essence Of Ojibwa Tea™ (extract/tincture), processed with hand press, never allowing electromagnetic frequencies to pollute the extract. Our preference is to batch small lots of herbs or essence at a time and to order herbs frequently to achieve maximum freshness for our tea drinkers. The facility used for our products is inspected by the State of Colorado and is a GMP, FDA-approved clean room to ensure cleanliness of the environment. Our labels are environmentally friendly using water or vegetable inks. Many individuals or companies do not follow the laws in their state – some don’t even know what the laws are! Before you purchase herbal products you may want to ask questions about packaging procedures! Crude products can be effective in small amounts if the raw herb or crude product has maintained its energetic (life force) quality.

We use herbs grown in the United States because many imported herbs undergo fumigation (gassing) and “protective” radiation. These processes can virtually destroy the potency of the herbs. The important point is to use no pesticides. Any of the following growing methods are acceptable:

  1. “Certified organic” herbs are cultivated crops grown without man-made chemicals. Many times, this certification is unavailable because certification is a complicated governmental procedure and takes significant time for the approval process.
  2. “Organic” herbs are cultivated as above, but without accreditation.
  3. “Wildcrafted” herbs grow in the wild (without man-made chemicals, of course). We feel this produces a heartier plant than a cultivated crop. We feel wildcrafted Sheep Sorrel is best — it is heartier and more nutrient-rich.
  4. “Commercially grown without pesticides” is self-explanatory.

Therefore, growing and harvesting techniques are as important as manufacturing. Exposing a plant to harsh growing environments or harsh processing can alter or damage it. A processed plant whose integrity has been maintained will possess attributes far beyond chemical constituents alone. These wonderful plants must be harvested from the earth with great respect and reverence as we receive the gifts of health and healing. Using plants in the freshest, most vital form possible is life enhancing for the entire planet. To retain the spiritual and life force of the plant energies, Ojibwa Tea of Life™ and packing are done the old way with the practice of giving back to Mother Earth and prayers for health.

We treat this herbal formula as a gift of nature with the intention to help all on a journey to wellness! Thank you for allowing us to share your process of health. We urge you to always seek the advice and support of your chosen health care practitioner!

Quality vs. Quantity

You may find cheaper herbs, but are they a better choice? Were they grown and processed by people dedicated to preserving the optimum potency and biological action after harvest? Is using five times as much of a cheaper herb to make a tea the same as using less of a quality herb? No. Lesser grade herbs are sometimes so inactive that even large amounts may lack the medicinal constituents.

Why “certified” organic?

Today there are hundreds of synthetic poisons available to agriculturists. Why put a toxically sprayed herb into your body? Years ago this was not a concern but now many health conditions may be from effects of pesticides themselves!

Usage Guidelines for Essiac Herbs

Specific brewing instructions will arrive with your order. These are only guidelines for suggested amounts of tea.

tea_cup

The formula is based on a decoction originally developed and used by Canadian Indians. A decoction is a very special type of “tea.” Specific barks, roots, and leaves must be boiled, then carefully simmered for at least 6 hours in a special process.This is no simple tea. No synthetic preservatives, flavorings, alcohol, glycerin, or other ingredients should be added.

Herbs should be natural and unadulterated — organically grown or ethically wildcrafted — so taste and color may vary slightly from batch to batch. For example, herbs grown in Washington state taste different from those grown in California! Sheep Sorrel’s taste varies greatly from sweet to mellow depending on the growing area, and can even “deepen” and develop a smoother flavor after a few days in the refrigerator. Also, the amount and appearance may vary from bottle-to-bottle.

Distilled water is best for brewing the essiac formula. A lower standard of purity would decrease effectiveness of this product. With today’s high water-pollution levels, city tap water, bottled spring, or even “purified” drinking water can often leave much to be desired.

This decoction should be prepared with stainless steel vessels and instruments. Stainless steel, while much more costly than other metals, is the most sanitary and nonreactive. No harmful preservatives should be used. Preparation must be meticulous. Herbs are light-sensitive, so amber-colored glass bottles should be used to retain maximum potency and value.

Many users take the decoction as a “preventative” tonic, even if they are in good health — they want to stay in good health. It must be remembered that each of us has a different level of wellness. For example, a smoker will have a different accumulation of toxins than a non-smoker. Time to see results will vary with each user. Depending on your specific conditions, this could take as long as a year, although the majority of users report significant results within the first week.

Be reasonably patient when waiting to notice effects from taking the decoction; allow at least 60 days for a fair evaluation.

For all its possible positive benefits, we know of no negative side-effects reported over a 50-year period!

Many users have conducted their own personal tests by ceasing to take the decoction for a short time, only to find their physical condition returns to a “pre-tea” state. The decoction functions as an optimizer and detoxifier; it apparently has the unique ability to improve the efficiency of most of the body’s natural mechanisms.

Native American Healing

Native Americans, as well as most indigenous cultures, consider Medicine, or the power to heal, to be generated by Spiritual Practice.

Medicine, is prayer and ceremony.

Medicine, takes into many modalities of healing – that is the use of massage, sweat baths, mud baths, mineral hot springs, decoctions of herbs, roots and barks, sunrays, pinewood air and smoke, and faith.

In Native American culture, nothing is done without prayer, whether one is beginning a new day, or conducting a ceremony. Treatment of oneself must first start with the Spirit, then the mind and lastly the body, according to how we were created.

Resources and literature abound in regards to this healthful remedy.

The Native American Medicine Wheel

A guide to balancing the elements

indianwheel

Ojibwa tea is a formula that was given to a Canadian nurse named Rene Caisse by an Ojibwa medicine man (whose name seems lost to obscurity) as a cure for her mother’s cancer. It is also called Essiac, which is Caisse spelled backward.

The medicine man was probably a member of the Mide (the Grand Medicine Society). Perhaps he envisioned the formula; perhaps it had been passed on for generations. Whichever the case, it is a remarkable example of how the wheel may be used to create an herbal formula. The blend is made of four herbs, and four is the number of balance on the wheel. Notice how the formula’s components visually increase in increments of four. We have roughly 1 part (by volume) of rhubarb root to 4 times that amount of burdock and slippery elm, to 4 times that amount of sheep sorrel.

Burdock and rhubarb root would be placed in the west, as they are gathered in the fall and their medicinal qualities follow the body’s deep internal rhythms. Slippery elm would be associated with the north simply because bark is one of the few things that can be gathered during the long frozen winters of the Far North. Also, the medicinal action of slippery elm affects the breath (spirit). Gathered in mid-spring and healing to the skin, sheep sorrel leaves bring the aspect of the east to the formula.

What is missing from this formula? A plant aspect from the south. Why? Because cancer is an imbalance of excessive growth, and the energy from the south is growth. Not only physical growth, but also the emotional, mental and visionary excesses of growth. To add herbs from the south (as some formulas add red clover blossoms) renders it less effective on a metaphysical level, according to the cosmology of the wheel.

The ultimate beauty of Native American herbalism is that it allows for your own personal preferences and differences. I have been told endless times when I ask about an herb, “Well, this is what worked for me, but I don’t know if that will help you any at all.” And if you choose to follow another theory of healing, do so – but follow it well.

Accepting our innate differences is an intrinsic part of healing. Medicine is and always will be an art as well as a science. The best we can do is to follow the Great Law of Peace and agree that if we can’t agree on anything else, at least we can agree to get along with one another.

Directions for Use according to the book Essiac Essentials:

1 fluid ounce (30 ml) essiac tea per day, diluted in 2 fluid ounces (60 ml) hot water.
This should be sipped, preferably at bedtime on an empty stomach.
Food should not be eaten within one hour before/after drinking the tea.

As a daily tonic or to enhance the immune system:

Take half a fluid ounce (15 ml) per day, diluted in one ounce hot water.

According to Sheila Snow and Mali Klein on page 38 of their book Essiac Essentials,
"It is very important to use the dosage as Rene recommended, which was based on more than 54 years' experience. Rene was very concerned about this, which is why she personally administered the dose to her patients. Depending on special circumstances, very occasionally in her later years, she would sometimes advise an initial dose of one fluid ounce twice daily for the first five, ten or (rarely) thirty days before reducing to one fluid ounce once a day."

Rene Caisse is quoted as saying, according to the same book,

"There is no need to to exceed this dose."
"People will not stick to the dose I give. They'll decide on their own
-- if a little's good, a lot's better. That's the way they think."

Sheila Snow's article "Old Ontario Remedies - 1922: Rene Caisse ESSIAC" (which appeared in the Canadian Journal of Herbalism, July 1991) says these are Rene Caisse's instructions:
 

Take one ounce of Essiac with two ounces of hot water every second day at bedtime, on an empty stomach two or three hours after supper.

Do not eat or drink anything for at least one hour after taking Essiac.

Continue the treatment every other day for thirty-two days, then take the treatment every three days.

Always keep Essiac refrigerated but never in the freezer.
Notes about side effects, although side affects are rare when taking essiac:

Diarrhea, headache, lower-back kidney ache, flu-like symptoms or upset stomach are usually caused by too high of a dose and not drinking enough water. Cut dose back to half the amount of essiac or stop for a few days, drinking a gallon of water every day to flush out your system (not juice, tea or other beverages). Anyone taking essiac should increase their water intake.

Allergy to essiac tea can also develop (rash and itchiness) if you take too much for too long. Some herbalists recommend using a "5 days on, 2 days off" rule with any herbal concoction.

Notes about who should not use essiac, and who should use caution:

Kathy Sedler has pages about Side Effects and Who Should Not Take Essiac Tea on her site at motherearthherbs.com (she quit selling essiac herbs to devote herself to research and writing).

According to Kathy Sedler's research, do not take essiac if you are pregnant, nursing or trying to conceive, if you have kidney disease, are prone to kidney stones or kidney infections, have ulcers or colitis, have a history of increased levels of iron in your blood, or have tumors that are encroaching on a major blood supply. Children under the age of 12 should not take this tea.

On the same page, Kathy Sedler's "When To Use Caution In Taking Essiac" is for those taking anticoagulant prescriptions, cardiac glycosides (like Digoxin), those with a cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder) and osteoporosis. Kathy has this caution for people with diabetes,

"Diabetics who are insulin dependant may need to adjust their dosage, also those on anti-diabetes medications. All diabetics should monitor their blood sugar closely while on this tea. Some of the constituents in this tea can affect the way glucose and insulin are taken up in the cells and utilized. Many people find they need less medication while taking this tea. This is not always the case, but is worthy of mention."
Rene Caisse discussed diabetes here and also here in her "I Was Canada's Cancer Nurse"

Other Recepies
To make
1 cup of mix to brew with 2 gallons of distilled water:
Burdock root (cut)  =   1/2 cup
Sheep Sorrel (powdered)  =   3/8 cup
Slippery Elm bark (powdered)  =   2 Tablespoons + 2 teaspoons
Turkey rhubarb (powdered)  =   1 teaspoon

Approximate number of bottles of tea made, depending on water loss

1 cup herb mix + 2 gallons of water = about 224 liquid ounces of tea
will fill fourteen 16-ounce pint bottles, or seven 32-ounce quart bottles.

1/2 cup herb mix + 1 gallon of water = about 112 liquid ounces of tea
will fill seven 16-ounce bottles, or three and a half 32-ounce quart bottles.

1/4 cup herb mix + 1/2 gallon of water = about 56 liquid ounces of tea
will fill three and a half 16-ounce bottles, or almost two 32-ounce quart bottles.

Supplies Needed  Do not use anything made of aluminum.

Stainless steel kettle with lid (or glass, UK unchipped enamel, CND granite pot)
Stainless steel sieve
Large stainless steel or wood stirring utensil
Stainless steel funnel or 2-cup glass measuring cup
Glass bottles can be amber, colored or clear glass

Sizes of kettle and how many bottles depend on amount of tea prepared.
3 gallon kettle and 14 bottles are ideal for 1 cup herb mix + 2 gallons of water.

Bottles and lids can be sterilized by one of these methods:

1)  Boil for 10 minutes with a little food grade peroxide or Clorox.
2)  Boil bottle caps, put bottles in 250 degree oven for 10 minutes.
3)  Soak for 5 minutes in 1 ounce 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide plus 11 oz. distilled water.
4)  Soak for 5 minutes in 1/2 teaspoon Clorox plus 1 gallon distilled water.
5)  16 oz. size bottles can be sterilized in a microwave oven carefully.

The water you use for making essic tea should be as pure as possible. Don't use tap water. Most people use distilled water. Nice but not vital, you can "re-energize and re-oxygenate" distilled water by shaking it well or setting it in the sun for a few hours.

Preparation is pretty much the same in essiac books by Snow/Klein and Cynthia Olsen:

Mix dry ingredients thoroughly.
Measure out desired amount of dry ingredients.
Pour proportionate amount of water into pot.
Bring water to a rolling boil with the lid on.
Stir dry ingredients into boiling water.
Replace lid and continue boiling at reduced heat for 10 minutes.
Turn off stove. Scrape down sides of pot and stir mixture thoroughly.
Replace lid, let pot sit and cool undisturbed for 10-12 hours (overnight).

Reheat to steaming hot, but do not let it boil.
Turn off heat and allow herbs to settle for a few minutes.
Pour hot liquid through sieve to catch sediment.
Use funnel to fill sterilized bottles, put lids on.
Allow bottles to cool, then tighten lids.
Store in dark cool place, always refrigerate an opened bottle.
Essiac contains no preservatives, discard if mold develops. "When in doubt, throw it out".

Unopened bottles can be stored in a cool, dark place, or keep all the bottles in the refrigerater. Don't freeze essiac or warm it up in a microwave (use hot water to dilute and warm it).

Rene Caisse Herbal Remedy made by Michael Miller is an 8 herb formula. "We have used and studied both the 4 herb formula and the 8 herb formula, and have decided to manufacture and sell the 8 herb formula. We consider it slightly better than the 4 herb formula."
Michael Miller formula
Burdock Root 60.5%
Sheep Sorrel 19.5%
Rhubarb Root   4.8%
Slippery Elm bark     4.8%
Kelp    4.8%
Blessed Thistle   2.4%
Red Clover    2.4%
Watercress    0.3%
Rene Caisse formula percentages according to Snow and Klein
Burdock Root   53%
Sheep Sorrel   36%
Rhubarb Root     2%
Slippery Elm bark      9%
Rene's recipe has significantly more Sheep sorrel, which may be the important herb. Rene's recipe also has less Rhubarb root (too much of that herb will cause diarrhea). As for marked differences of Burdock root and Slippery Elm bark, who really knows their value? As for the value of the added 4 herbs, who really knows for sure?

This makes a year's supply for $5.00 or ?3.72, according to Essiac Essentials.

Herb Volume Weight Form % of Recipe
Burdock root   4.25 ozs. 120g pea-size cut 53%
Sheep sorrel   2.8 ozs. 80g powdered 36%
Slippery Elm bark   0.7 ozs. 20g powdered 9%
Turkey rhubarb root   0.18 oz. 5g powdered 2%

Another approach is to use volume measurements, if you are allergic to metric measurements. The trouble with volume measement is that herb volume can vary widely depending on supplier.
