Two Alternative Treatments (Essiac and Ava or Avemar) Used By Interviewed Guest

Friday, July 24th, 2009

linda-wilson2One of the guests, Mrs Linda Wilson, interviewed by Dr Carl O Helvie on the Holistic Health Show used the herbal tea Essiac, and Ave successfully in her recovery from kidney cancer.
Essiac Tea has been used since the early 1900’s. In 1922, Rene Caisse was told by one of her clients about her breast cancer recovery using what was later named essiac tea (caisse spelled backwards). It had been given to her by an Ojibwa Indian Medicine man 30 years earlier and was made from 4 herbs -sheep sorrel, burdock root, slippery elm bark, and turkey rhubarb root. When her aunt developed stomach cancer that had metastasized and her doctors gave up on her, Rene collected and brewed the herbal preparation and her aunt lived another 21 years. She continued using the preparation with her cancer clients and eventually started her own cancer clinic under the supervision of physicians who supported her work. She treated thousands of patients who traditional medicine had given up on and turned away.
Because most of her patients came as a last resort and were in advanced stages of cancer the treatment was not successful with everyone. For some it controlled the cancer, for others it mainly alleviated the pain. However, thousands of clients reported complete cures. In 1937 the Royal Canadian commission of Canada held hearings and concluded that Essiac was a cure for cancer.

Ava (in the U.S.A.) or Avemar (outside the U.S.A.) is also an older cancer treatment developed by a scientist in Hungary who was awarded the 1937 Nobel Prize in Medicine for describing the essential role of vitamin C in the life sustaining processes of cellular metabolism. This work has continued by scientists in Hungary who have refined an all natural produce by fermenting wheat germ with baker’s yeast.
