Essiac-20, named after Canadian nurse Rene Caisse spelled backwards, traces its origins to Caisse's fortuitous encounter with a breast cancer survivor treated by an Ojibwa Indian medicine man in 1922. This potent blend features the four original herbs: Burdock Root, Slippery Elm, Sheep's Sorrel, and Turkey Rhubarb. Dr. Max Barlow, who collaborated with Caisse in the mid-1960s, enhanced the formula by incorporating Watercress and Blood Root in precise proportions, amplifying its effectiveness. Burdock Root, a core ingredient from the Ojibwa tradition, purifies the blood, fortifies the lymphatic system, acts as a natural diuretic, and promotes skin healing, while also exhibiting anti-diabetic, anti-cancer, and anti-arthritis properties. Slippery Elm aids in gastrointestinal health, alleviating constipation, bloating, and diarrhea, and may offer benefits in weight loss and stress reduction, potentially combating breast cancer. Sheep's Sorrel, esteemed for its blood-purifying qualities and mineral richness, was regarded by Caisse as a potent cancer fighter, acting as a detoxifier and diuretic. Turkey Rhubarb, known for its astringent properties, supports gastrointestinal health, regulating bowel movements without cramping. Blood Root contributes to cancer prevention, infection protection, heart health, skin enhancement, wound healing, and circulation improvement. Watercress, rich in phytochemicals, may safeguard against cancer by preserving cell integrity and thwarting genetic mutations, while also possessing anti-inflammatory properties crucial for cancer risk reduction.
