I have read a lot about ESSIAC tea but never tried it until two months ago.They say that at the beginning the cancer cells will swell but that after 3 months they start shrinking. I had finished my chemo in April and went back to see my naturopath at the end of July. When I mentioned ESSIAC to him he said that in fact it was the thing he was going to suggest to me. The cancer had been stable since last January and I had been hoping for some shrinking so I thought I would try this tea. My last CT scan showed a slinght increase in cancer size in some of the nodules in my lung ( I guess there are swelling). I hope they will also shrink eventually. I am going for another CT scan in November I will let you know what happens.
I am also taking a heavy dosage of amino acids (Whey powder). This too is supposed to boost up the immune system, although some doctors do not like it because they contain growth factor. I guess when you find different opinions you have to try things and pray God. Prayer is very important! I also do some meditation read : GETTING WELL AGAIN by Dr. C. Simonton. I liked it. good luck to you. LIL
