This blog started as a place to chat from a Christian perspective about a variety of topics. Today it is mainly a natural health blog, but I will share other topics worth mentioning. The older I get, the more I want to simplify, and I have a passion for sharing the thoughtfulness of our creator.

God created oils from plants that have potent medicinal properties. Many of us ignore these natural gifts and reach for man-made remedies. I'm on a mission to honor the physical, emotional and spiritual healing that's possible through the power of nature.

Today I'm continuing my blog from yesterday about Essiac, a cure for cancer that's been hidden from the general public since 1922.  The message of Essiac is beginning to be heard worldwide, but only by word of mouth.  My information comes from an interview with Dr. Gary L. Glum that was conducted by Elisabeth Robinson.  In that interview, Glum offers several examples of how Essiac has been withheld from the public as a cure for cancer.

Dr. Charles A. Brusch was a personal physician to the late President John F. Kennedy.  Dr. Brusch worked with Rene Caisse from 1959 to 1965.  Caisse discovered the original herbal formula known as Essiac through a patient who was cured of cancer.  The formula originated from a Ojibway herbalist.  After ten years of research, Dr. Brusch concluded "Essiac is a cure for cancer."  All studies done at laboratories in the US and Canada supported his conclusion.

After he made this announcement that a cure for cancer had been found, the federal government issued a gag order and said he has two choices: keep quiet about his findings or be hauled off to military prison.  The public hasn't heard from the good doctor since.  Ted Kennedy's son who had a sarcoma on his leg was one of Dr Brusch's patients.  At that point, no one had ever survived with that type of sarcoma.  Dr. Brusch put him on Essiac and after that he didn't have a cancer cell in his body.  But his healing was never made public.

Dr. Glum is trying to get this information out to people so they can make their own decisions about Essiac.  "You have the right to make this remedy and use it in the privacy of your own home without anyone's approval," he says..."without the approval of the AMA or FDA or anybody else."

"What will keep Essiac know is its effectiveness," said Dr. Glum.  He mentions findings that Essiac normalizes the thyroid gland, heals stomach ulcers, and regulates the pancreas in cases of diabetes mellitus.  He even claims that dying AIDS patients were brought back to health by taking Essiac three times a day.  "This information isn't being disseminated," said Glum.  "AIDS is on the horizon as another big moneymaker.  The chairman of the AIDS project in Los Angeles makes over $100,000 a year."

Dr. Glum has been taking one ounce of Essiac a day for seven years and hasn't had a cold, flu, or virus in seven years because Essiac elevates the immune system.  This simple Native herbal remedy contains Turkish rhubarb root, burdock root, the inner bark of slippery elm, and Sheep's sorrel.  The sheep's sorrel destroys the cancer cells and the other three herbs are blood purifiers.  Glum claims that Essiac has shown no negative side effects and up to six ounces a day can be taken (two ounces, three times a day-- morning, noon, and evening).
My husband and I just ordered our first batch of Essiac.  It has to be brewed like a tea in stainless steel pots then poured through a strainer.  The herbs are all organic and prepared by healing arts people if you order them from  The Herbal Healer Academy is based in Arizona.  Ordering requires membership, but membership is free.  You can become a member by following the instructions on the website.  We heard about Essiac from family members who are taking it daily with good results.  They claim Essiac has healed their acne, skin cancer, and other ailments.

So there you have it, a cure for cancer and many other ailments.  Only you can decide if you want to believe it.  What you do with this information is up to you.  I'm just passing it along like Dr. Glum is trying to do.  The Bible says we suffer for lack of knowledge.  Essiac could be the ultimate example of that.

Please note: In cases where there was severe damage to life support organs, Rene Caisse's patients died.  She was only allowed to treat those who had been given up by the medical profession as untreatable.  The Ontario government had not legalized the use of Essiac, which limited her ability to administer it.
