Essiac or Essiac Tea is a blend of herbs used to make a tea that is believed by some and questioned by others to have cancer-treating properties. It was discovered by a Canadian nurse, Rene Caisse, who named it after her last name spelled backwards.
The original formula is believed to have its roots in native Canadian Ojibwa medicine and contains greater burdock root (Arctium Lappa), Slippery Elm inner bark (Ulmus Rubra, formerly known as Ulmus fulva), Sheep Sorrel (Rumex Acetosella), and Indian or Turkish Rhubarb root (Rheum Officinale)
¼ cup powdered Slippery Elm Bark

Currently, there is not enough evidence to recommend for or against the use of this herbal mixture as a therapy for any type of cancer. Different brands may
contain variable ingredients, and the comparative effectiveness of these formulas is not known. None of the individual herbs used in Essiac has been tested in rigorous human cancer trials (rhubarb has shown some anti-tumour properties in animal experiments; slippery elm inner bark has not; sheep sorrel and burdock have been used traditionally in cancer remedies). Numerous individual patient testimonials and reports from manufacturers are available on the Internet, although these cannot be considered scientifically viable as evidence. Individuals with cancer are advised not to delay treatment with more proven therapies. However there is also no evidence to say that this therapy is not effective in the treatment of any or all cancers, but providing that your health care professional do not object, what can be the harm in trying it, is just a tea after all.
Side Effects and Cautions -- Possible, Not Probable
Cynthia Olsen wrote in her book Essiac, A Native Herbal Cancer Remedy, 2nd Edition page 61,
Though side effects are rare when taking Essiac, there are three general ones:
Sheila Fraser Snow wrote in her book Essence of Essiac on page 48,
Here are three possible causes of adverse reactions:
"When any discomfort occurred, Rene always cautioned her patients to stop taking the decoction for several days until they felt better. Then they were told to begin again with just half an ounce every other day and gradually to increase the dose to one ounce each day. This usually corrected the problem." For more info click HERE
Another alternative receiving quite a lot of attention now is Graviola.
Graviola, the powerful herb from the Amazon Rainforest, is helping millions of people fight through their cancer treatment. Graviola extract has been shown to have an effect on the actual cancer cells, which can be of great benefit to someone who is fighting cancer. See research on Graviola at PubMed!
Graviola is very aggressive at breaking up tumours. It appears that, as with many health problems, the body (in its wisdom) is trying to protect itself by creating a tumour to encase the toxins that can harm the body. Breaking up the tumour releases toxins back into the body, making the person feel very sick. When tumours are surgically removed, this also takes out the toxins which why this is the most effective medical treatment for cancer. So it is important when taking Graviola to also take immune booster natural remedy to aid your body get rid of toxins faster so that you don't feel so ill when taking Graviola.
Graviola has also been known to kill intestinal parasites, calm nerves, reduce blood pressure and help with arthritis, heart and liver. Gravizon a remedy containing Graviola, claims to have already included other supplements that aids getting rid of toxins and aid the immune system (click here for more info)

Another interesting alternative
Miracle Chinese Cancer Cure Chinese pearl barley the latest cancer cure (Coix lachryma-jobi, or Jobs’s tears, a relative of maize). (report bellow is an extract from ISIS)
Yi-mi is used in soups and porridges and is a common ingredient in many herbal medicines for treating a variety of ailments including cancer. It has also been widely used as a diuretic, analgesic and antispasmodic.
Pharmacologist Li Dapeng began extracting the anticancer compounds out of the seeds of Job’s tears (Coix lachryma-jobi) and experimenting with the compounds since 1975. Twenty years later, he won his government’s approval to market an extract that he calls Kanglaite, to help fight cancer and to reduce the side effects of conventional treatments. Li Dapeng has set up his own company in Hanzhou, the Zhejian Kanglaite Pharmaceutical Company Ltd, in order to market this drug.
Kanglaite has gone through a four-month clinical trial on 15 to 18 volunteers in a hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah, making it the first drug derived from a traditional Chinese herbal remedy to go into clinical trials in the United States. The drug is patented in China, United States, Canada, Japan and the European Union.
No one knows exactly how Kanglaite works, but the drug has been taken by more than 270 000 patients in some 2000 hospitals in China, and has proven effective against malignant tumours such as carcinomas in the lung, liver, stomach and breast.
It appears to fight cancer on many fronts, inhibiting the growth of cancer cells and killing them directly, it also stimulates immune functions that get rid of cancer cells, and improves the quality of life for cancer sufferers, by decreasing cancer pain and preventing the loss of body weight. It has no harmful side effects on vital functions of the heart, liver, kidney and blood. It also reduces toxic side effects of radio- and chemotherapy, and increases the effectiveness of these conventional treatments. When used in combination with surgical intervention, it helps kill tumour cells. It is, to all intent and purposes, the perfect cancer cure, or so is claimed.
Having said all the above, I believe that the ingestion of this barley as part of a persons diet could be an effective way of preventing cancer as well as killing pre-cancerous cells, it may even be good at healing cancers depending on length of time that it is allowed to be part of the cancer sufferer's diet.
