My wife has cancer and she is losing too much weight. Does drinking tea make you lose weight?


Craig, I am sorry to hear that your wife has cancer.

Yes, drinking tea does cause weight loss, and sometimes this can be undesirable. For most people, the effects is small, cumulative and wholesome.

But for a small population of people, and especially when combined with exercise or with illness, the effects can be rather drastic. As a natural thin person, I have always found drinking too much tea can cause me to lose too much weight.

Herbal teas such as the Essiac, and especially the Sheep Sorrell tea, is popularly used by cancer patients as complementary treatment. Essiac teas are not known to cause weight loss.

Cancer weight loss NEW
by: Anonymous

Cancer causes weight loss. I've lost 33 lbs since January. Taking Essiac which I took 9 years ago in high doses to cure breast cancer. Worked but I put on little weight.
Auto immune disease caused recurrence and in spine. Essiac going for cancer and amazingly helping auto immune. Wondered about that.
Don't drink green tea with cancer.
