Hi! I read a review once about someone who got good results taking Essiac tea for Tinnitus. I have suffered from it for decades... and decided to give it a go. I purchased the herbal mix (4 herbs) from a local UK seller on Ebay - very 'homemade', not commercially packaged. And followed the strict preparation guidelines as demonstrated on a youtube video hosted by "Essiac Facts" channel. This was only 2 days ago 09/11/2017. Coincidentally, I happened to have a lump on my chin, like ingrown PIMPLE (since stopping the contraceptive pills a couple of years ago, I started getting bad Acne on my chin monthly...I'm in my mid 30's. Something for a separate post!). I instinctively decided to place the left over herbs, "the sludge" you are left after brewing the herbs and passing the tea through a sieve, on top of the lump. and left on it for around 4-5 hours. I was amazed to see how the herbs pulled the 'infection' out so quickly and gently, I had a small white head, which soften after a warm shower.Sadly I had put the sludge on the bin when clearing the kitchen.... So I decided to apply the herbal residues that is left on the bottom of my mug when I'm actually drinking the tea for Tinnitus... I used a cotton pad to apply it on my chin before bed - then this morning I was amazed to see that the huge lump was practically gone,no more tenderness,fluid or red color. When using conventional medication topically it would take me at least a week to manage and bring such a massive eruption to this stage. I am SO impressed by the power of the herbs, so as well as drinking this miracle tea for my tinnitus, I will keep applying the herbal residues on my chin before bed and hope to keep the area clear. I will keep the herbal sludge when I prepare the next tea batch... Each batch of drinking tea are made with 15g of the Essiac herbs combo + 1.5l of water and is meant to last around 30-45 days, if I drink 15ml a day. I will report back once I finish drinking my 3 batches - around three months time. Hope it's helpful!
