A rare glimpse of the humble Canadian nurse, Rene Caisse, who brought "Essiac" to the world in the 1920's. Filmed in the 70's. Essiac (Caisse written backwards) was her herbal cancer remedy. It works by re-building the immune system. She struggled for 50 years to get it recognized and widely available, but was let down by the Canadian government by 3 votes in parliament. She is the unrecognised "Florence Nightingale"of our modern generation.

The formula:

  • SHEEP’S SORREL (Rumex Acetosella) - 16 ounces as powder
  • BURDOCK ROOT (Arctium Lappa) - 6 1/2 cups in cut form
  • INDIAN RHUBARB ROOT (Rheum Palmatum) - 1 ounce in powdered form
  • SLIPPERY ELM BARK (Ulmus Fulva) -.4 ounces in powdered form

Complete 27min video embedded below with volume re-edited, as previous upload had poor audio (only known video of Rene Caisse).

See this website for a wonderful testimony of a nurse's cancer cure in 2004 within 60days with herbs, oxygen, protease enzymes, heat, and an alkaline diet! --

"I beat my cancer in just over 60 days, without chemotherapy or radiation. I had lab results taken every 2 weeks that were better every time. After 30 days there were no smudge cells present and my white count and lymphocyte count dropped until normal.
Again I used:

Total body detoxifier Flor- Essence, also known as Essiac tonic, everyday until my Leukemia was gone! I found it very interesting that President John F. Kennedy knew about this product!" -End Quote-

I don't know when this battle between Orthodox and Alternative Medicine will stop; as well as the dumbing-down of everything not done in a "normal" hospital. I don't see any quick solutions in the future, but I pray and hope that it ends soon -because patients are suffering & dying from all the wrangling. Both groups must work together for the benefit of all.

If you don't trust it or are sceptical, at least use it for your loved ones with cancer pain - which was Rene's original intention, but the wonderful side effect of cancer regression was noted!

Stay blessed,

2. Take a measuring cup, use 1 ounce of herb mixture to 32 ounces of water depending on the amount you want to make.
