There are a variety of herbal programs that will assist the immune system and which are considered worthy in nutrition for cancer. However, the one particular formula that has stood the test of time is known to many as "essiac". This is a formula which many use in the hope that they are preventing cancer and more especially, the impediment of cancer cells from metastasizing.
In the early 1920's a young Canadian nurse by the name of Rene Caisse was given this herbal formula by a patient. The patient said she had cured herself of breast cancer by using this combination prepared by a medicine man from the Ojibwa tribe. Caisse used the same formula on patients who were terminally ill. She claimed many cures and a staggering success rate. She obtained permission from the Canadian government to use this to treat people who were hopeless cases. Many attempts were made to legalize Essiac as a "cure for cancer", including the submission of a bill to parliament, which was defeated by only a few votes. The affect was quite detrimental and Essiac was outlawed, to be used only as an underground remedy.
