Who discovered the Original Essiac?
Essiac was discovered in 1922, when a patient spoke to Nurse Rene Caisse of a Canadian Ojibwa Indian herbal tea she took. She eventually named the formula Essiac, which is Nurse Caisse's name spelled backwards. Nurse Caisse ran her clinic on Dominion Street from 1934 to 1942 and continued to give Essiac to people until the late 1970's.*
Why purchase ESSIAC from Altramed in CANADA?
There are many counterfeits of ESSIAC in the marketplace. Whether they claim to be an improved formula, an enhanced product, or whether they claim to have ESSIAC under another name or spelling of the name, they are all counterfeits making false and irresponsible claims: IF THE BOTTLE DOESN'T SAY ESSIAC MADE ONLY IN CANADA WITH A CANADIAN FLAG ON ITS LABEL IT'S NOT ESSIAC
Essiac is sold in powder, liquid and capsules formulas.
The Essiac powder will need to be brewed and prepare the old fashion way. The Essiac extract formula is ready and can be used easily. The new Essiac capsule formula (vegicaps) are made of the same original Essiac formula - but they are more convenient and stay fresher longer than the Essiac liquid and powder formulas. Vegicaps can also be opened easily and added to juice or water. The 4 herbs used to manufacture Essiac pass strict quality control tests.
Essiac Canada Int'l is the only company who has the legal right to use the Essiac name which is a registered trademark in Canada. The Original Canadian Essiac has been world renowned since 1922.
