    Essiac Tea
    caseyatbat16 posted:
    In June, 2006 I was DX'd with PCa and formulated my own diet, opting to go the Watchful Waiting route. The diet was replete with herbs, ocean fish (wild Salmon and Tuna packed in oil), vitamin supplements, Selenium, Lycopene, Essiac Tea and plenty of vegetables - especially cruceiform (Brussel Sprouts, Cauliflower, Broccoli). 13 months after my initial Prostate Biopsy I underwent a second and the results? No cancer was found. Naturally my Urologist stated that any Prostate Biopsy was like looking for a needle in a haystack (don't they All say that?).
    Does anyone out there drink Essiac Tea? To combat PCa? Or merely for good health?

    It's good to hear you are doing well.

    My diet is similar to yours, except for the Essiac Tea.

    It would be helpful to know your age,PSA at diagnosis, current PSA and Gleason Score,etc.

    Wonderful to hear your story, have you been able to have the PC go into remission? Are you still taking Essiac tea?
