Has anyone out there tried Essiac Tea. It comes in tea and capsule forms that I know of., My other half had severe acid reflux and it was probably leading to something worse if we let it go. His sister-in-law had it so bad that a friend of hers told her about the Essiac. She tried it and was it helps to repair the damage done. My man tried  and hadn't had any problems in almost a year. Recently, he started having a beer or two and it is starting back up so I'll get him back on it before any damage is done.     Check it out.

Thank you Nana for sharing.  I have not heard of
Essiac Tea but there are a lot of things I have never heard surprises there  :)
Perhaps one of our other members has heard of this tea.

Wishing you the best,

I've been trying it for the first time,
in tea form.  I make the tea myself
from a mix that a local health store sells.
I don't know yet what to make of it.
I know that in Canada they've used it a
lot, as it came down through a native
Indian custom then through a Canadian
nurse of decades ago.
I seemed to have had however, a
rapid "de-tox,"  event, or so it seemed,
as I slightly upped my intake in the
first 2 days that I took it.   That's ok,
because Essiac is supposed to work
well and is meant as a gradual detox
for cancers.   But I'm not experienced,
nor have I known of anyone personally
whose used it for cancer, which is why
I'm taking it.
I do know that in general, it's a good
detoxer, gentle, and is supposed to
be in general, an overall energy-lifting
tea to drink.   I imagine however, since
it does detox systems, that in the first
week or two, if taken regularly, you will
probably have the experience of body detox,
and that makes you feel bad;   so don't mistake
that feeling for the Essiac.    That would happen
with any type of "cleansing" product.
John F. Kennedy used to take it regularly,
daily, as he suffered much physical sickness,
so he took it as a "regulator" of his energies.
Anyway, that's all I know...
will keep in touch as time moves forward
in my taking of Essiac...

Looks like it came out as a "cancer cure". One of the ingredients is slippery elm, which may be why it helps. I find all forms of tea aggravate my symptoms as they are so acidic, but it would be interesting to hear from anyone else who has tried it.

I haven't tried it. but I purchased licorice and rooibos teas recently. Both have claims of easing heartburn, and I found them in my local grocery store (Wegman's).

I have not tried essiac tea for reflux. I have tried rooibos and camomile teas, and both of them are helpful to some extent. I also use green tea with ginseng for energy since I stopped drinking coffee.

I'm curious about green/herbal tea. I see many ppl on here that drink it and I was (for whatever reason), under the impression that green/herbal tea is not stomach-friendly.

Chamomile is all I drink as I'm fearful of causing more problems. I've never heard of essiac or rooibos teas but I will get some.
