Essiac tea dosage is based on your health condition. For example, individuals with cancer will take the aggressive dose while those who are healthy and want to prevent illness will take the preventive/maintenance dose.
It is advised to consult your health practitioner for dosage recommendations after reviewing this guide. Your dosages will change on your road to optimal health.
The Aggressive Dose is recommended if you are trying to improve your health. This is the standard recommended dosage if you have (or suspect that you have) cancer or another health problem.
We recommend 9 oz. per day, taken in three separate 3 oz. doses. 6-12 oz. may be used based on body weight, taken in three separate doses of 2-4 oz. each.
You should continue with the aggressive dosage for a minimum of five months, or until your test results return to normal. If your test results have returned to normal, you may reduce your tea to the maintenance dosage of 4 oz. just once per day. If at any point your symptoms return, we recommend that you return to the aggressive dosage of three 3 oz. doses per day.
If the original condition persists even while you drink the tea, continue on the aggressive treatment dosage until your condition improves and you're satisfied with the results. Keep in mind that many conditions worsen if they are not taking this tea, so sometimes just staying the same is a positive step.
All doses should be taken on an empty stomach. This product was tested by people with an empty stomach, and this will ensure maximum absorption of your tea dosage. For best results, avoid eating two hours before and one hour after.
*If you are currently taking chemotherapy and/or radiation, or you have been given a terminal diagnosis, we recommend the Aggressive PLUS Dose.
Aggressive Dose PLUS:
Essiac can be taken during cancer treatments without compromising that treatment. If you are currently on a chemotherapy or radiation regime, please note that these treatments can diminish some of the strength of the tea. Taking "extra" tea to compensate for this ensures that the tea you're taking will be able to do its job. Many people on chemo and/or radiation have tried up to 18 oz. per day or three 6 oz doses, with good results. However, those who have remained with just 9 oz. per day, have also had good results. This decision is between you and your practitioner. We do recommend the aggressive dose PLUS for those who are currently receiving chemo and/or radiation, or who have been given a terminal diagnosis.

This tea dosage is 4 oz. of tea per day, and can be taken all at once. Remain on the maintenance dose for at least 6 months AFTER your test results have returned to normal. Many people choose to continue the maintenance dose indefinitely to maintain their good health. Some also take a maintenance dose as a daily preventive supplement, even though they have no health problems. This powerful tea is a ‘superfood’, rich in nutrients which will help prevent illness. The preventive dose continually detoxifies your system, improving overall health.
The Detoxification Dose:
Those interested in detoxifying the body to prevent illness or if you are recovering from an illness, you can use this tea dosage. Use 4 oz. per day, the same as the preventive dose.
The length of time you should remain on a maintenance dose is entirely up to you. I take the maintenance dose daily. With our busy lifestyles today, the tea gives me the added energy I need. The tea can be taken indefinitely without harm, so it's your decision whether to continue on the maintenance dose or to stop altogether once you've achieved good health.
