How This Plant-Based Beverage Healed Ted Kennedy’s Son From Incurable Cancer

Reading the story of this unselfish, caring and warm-hearted nurse, Essiac, who had funnily enough became famous by her name spelled backwards “Caisse” was really like being immersed in a thriller. Her lifestory was characterized by healing so many people from terminal cancer by using a plant-based remedy that had been kept secret for over 100 years. She had been harassed and tormented by the Canadian authorities because of her success with curing cancer patients permanently. Moreover, after her death in 1978 these authorities didn’t even shy away from ransacking her home and burning her records just to make sure this plant-based remedy would not become public. Being so devastated and desperate, Caisse stated at the end of your life that she had never thought her lot to be facing such strong opposition and persecution in her selfish attempt to help suffering people without any thought of personal gain. However, later it became obvious that the Canadian authorities could not prevent her secret from becoming known to some people who tried to pass it over despite being threatened to end up in prison for the rest of their lives. One of those people was Dr. Brusch who treated Ted Kennedy’s son successfully who had been suffering from incurable cancer. Do yourself a favor and read the entire story. You will never repent it!

“How would you react if you were told that a simple cheap 4-ingredient herbal tea can be miraculously healing, and can even cure cancer and AIDS?

Essiac tea was introduced in Canada during the early 1920’s and it was practiced by a humble nurse, Rene Caisse (pronounced Reen Case) for half a century in various kinds of treatments.

The ingredients and recipe of this miraculous tea came originally from an Ojibway Native American medicine man in remote northern Canada. However, the name is related to this decent nurse that used it. Essiac, was derived from spelling her surname -Caisse backwards.

The nurse effectively treated and cured terminal cancer patients at her clinic in the tiny Canadian village of Bracebridge, north of Toronto.

Initially, her treatments cost as much as patients could give, an egg, or two, and various products, and rejected none. After 1937, her services were made absolutely free, she accepted no fees!

Therefore, her reward for her successful treatments was only the health of the patients. Eventually, she was even tormented by the Canadian Health Ministry, and betrayed by a private corporation while she tried to legalize this tea as a cancer cure.
Essiac’s Origin

In 1922, when Rene worked as an RN in a Canadian hospital, she had an elderly patient who had survived breast cancer 30 years earlier and was living with her husband in remote northern Canadian mining camp at that time.

She claimed that her breasts should have been removed, but she rejected the surgery and returned to her husband. In the area where they lived, she had earlier come upon an Ojibway medicine man who promised that he could cure her cancer.

When she returned home, she asked him to help her, and he revealed the mixture of herbs she needed to use and how to prepare the healing tea. Following his instructions, she succeeded to cure her cancer and lived happily for another three decades.

Rene was vividly interested in this tea, as her aunt and step father had cancer at the time. Her patient gave her all information on the preparation of the tea. Thus, the nurse tried and cured the members of her family who were affected by this serious disease.

Afterwards, Rene decided to help all cancer- patients she came across. Her treatments were so effective, that in 1933 the small town of Bracebridge allowed her to use the defunct British Lion Hotel as a clinic for virtually no rent, one dollar per month.

There, she continued her work from 1934 to 1942, and treated hundreds of patients, in most cases, for free. Rene started cultivating the needed herbs for the tea, brewed the tea in the kitchen, and administered it both orally and by injection.

Yet, during this period of her flourishing work, she was constantly in the center of controversy and harassment from Canadian authorities. If she didn’t have the support from Bracebridge’s Town Council, several prestigious doctors, and her numerous cured patients, she would have been imprisoned.

Moreover, one of her patients was cured of both cancer and diabetes, and the latter surprised even her!

However, enjoying the support of these people, since 1937, this nurse was allowed to treat cancer under certain conditions, and of course, she accepted them all. Namely, she needed to treat only terminally ill patients, using an established medical doctor for prognosis and diagnosis, and she wasn’t allowed to accept any fees for her treatments.

Being tormented for more than 5 decades, Rene stated: “I never dreamed of the opposition and the persecution that would be my lot in trying to help suffering humanity with no thought of personal gain.”

Popularity in the USA

The work of Rene gave fantastic results, and she has cured numerous cancer patients. However, the remarkable tea still remained unknown to the public.

Caisse tried to get it out into the public light in 1977, a year before her death, by making a deal with a company called Resperin. She hoped they will legalize it, but at the end, after the agreement, she was told she was no longer needed.

However, this company was governed by the Canadian government and medical authorities, so the future of the tea seemed dark.

At the same time, a famous California chiropractor who specialized in treating world class athletes of all types, Dr. Gary Glum, became interested in the tea, as he has heard of its efficacy and healing qualities. Therefore, he started his research on the Essiac tea.

After some time, he met a person in Detroit who has been cured with Essiac, after he has been diagnosed with an incurable cervical cancer. Gary bought the formula of the tea from her, and went to Canada to interview Mary McPhearson. She was an assistant to Nurse Caisse before she died in 1978, as well as her close personal friend.

After the interview and after the authenticity of the formula he had bought was confirmed, he decided to write a book. He discovered important information about Rene Caisse and her work and it was enough to start writing the” Calling of an Angel”. The book explained the life of the nurse Rene Caisse, as well as the recipe of the tea, which has been distributed throughout the world.

As the book itself, as well as the formula of this powerful tea, represented a threat for the cancer industry, Gary Glum also faced some unpleasant attitudes. Therefore, he published his book by his own.

There was the danger of slam dunk wrongful death lawsuits on publishers since Essiac was not FDA approved, so no publisher would risk publishing it.

His second book, Full Disclosure, reveals the true source of AIDS as being a human product, due to the depopulation agenda. His two books actually endangered him and he was also harassed by US Marshals and almost completely financially ruined by bogus IRS claims. Furthermore, a  Naval Intelligence operative later even threatened his life and the lives of his family if he continued publishing his two books.

Nowadays, very few of his books are still available, but you can read them online in summarized pdf versions. In 1999, Dr. Glum was interviewed on the effect of Essiac in the case of AIDS, and he claimed:

“I also worked with the AIDS Project Los Angeles . . . . They had sent 179 patients home to die. They all had pneumocystis carinii and histoplasmosis. Their weight was down to about 100 pounds. Their T-4 cell counts were less than ten.The Project gave me five of these patients. I took them off the AZT and the DDI and put them on Essiac three times a day. Those are the only ones alive today. The other 174 are dead. But this information is not being disseminated either, because AIDS is on the horizon as another big moneymaker.”

    I’m more than sorry to hear that. However, fortunately it worked in so many other cases, so there must be definitely something to it!

    I’m a big believer in food healing the body and nautral remedies but this article is spreading junk science. It’s dangerous and irresponsible to spread misinformation.

    That’s a great attitude. Honestly, I don’t care if this remedy is scientifically proven and acknowledged or not. So, it may be for some people “junk” science. The only thing that matters in the end is that it worked in so many cases but unfortunately not in all of them. You can read more about the story of this nurse here if you want

    By sharing these types of stories, you are spreading false hope to a group of people (cancer patients) who are desperate to find any sort of magical cure. It’s unconscionable to share these snake oil tales.
