ESSIAC TEATO MAKE ONE GALLON, CUT THIS RECIPE IN HALF. ONE-HALF CUP HERBS TO ONEGALLON WATER To make 1 cup of mix to brew with 2 gallons of distilled water:Burdock root (cut)= 1/2 cupSheep Sorrel (powdered)= 3/8 cupSlippery Elm bark (powdered)= 2 Tablespoons + 2 teaspoonsTurkey rhubarb (powdered)= 1 teaspoonApproximate number of bottles of tea made, depending on water loss1 cup herb mix + 2 gallons of water = about 224 liquid ounces of teawill 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 teawill 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 teawill 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 sieveLarge stainless steel or wood stirring utensilStainless steel funnel or 2-cup glass measuring cupGlass bottles can be amber, colored or clear glassSizes 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 usedistilled water. Nice but not vital, you can "re-energize and re-oxygenate" distilled water by shaking it wellor 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 freezeessiac or warm it up in a microwave (use hot water to dilute and warm it).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 41 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, Rene would sometimesadvise an initial dose of one fluid ounce twice daily for the first five, ten or (rarely) thirty days beforereducing to one fluid ounce once a day. In the same book Rene Caisse is quoted as saying,"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." 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 toohigh of a dose and not drinking enough water. Cut dose back to half the amount of essiac or stop for a fewdays, 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.If you become itchy or develop some rashes when you take essiac tea, that is an allergy to the sheep sorrel.People who take too much essiac tea for too long can also develop this allergy. Many herbalists recommendusing a "5 days on, 2 days off" rule with any herbal decoction.Cynthia Olsen Notes (from Essiac, A Native Herbal Cancer Remedy, 2nd Edition page 61)Though side effects are rare when taking Essiac, there are three general ones:nausea and/or indigestion, generally caused by eating or drinking too soon before or after drinking the tea,severe intestinal or digestive discomfort, caused principally because as toxins dissolve, the body tries toeliminate them quickly,an increase in the size of an existing tumor, caused by the metastasized cells gathering at the original site, before the tumor softens and reduces in size.Sheila Snow Notes (from Essence of Essiac, page 48)Here are three possible causes of adverse reactions:
