Who discovered the Original Essiac®?
Essiac® was discovered in 1922, when a patient spoke to Nurse Rene Caisse of a Canadian Ojibwa Indian herbal tea she took. She eventually named the formula Essiac®, which is Nurse Caisse's name spelled backwards. Nurse Caisse ran her clinic on Dominion Street from 1934 to 1942 and continued to give Essiac® to people until the late 1970's.*
