I started using olive leaf 15+ years ago - it been used with horses for a long time. I "eat" FRESH leaf - no extract. There is all the effects of the good things as mentioned, PLUS there is a "nutrition for your body" in a way that the overall "neural" cognitive effect is . . . PEACE (within you). We would all be a better race for ingesting.Namaste.
it really works i alwalys take it when i get the first symptoms of a cold like a sore trout or runny nose and never get the full blown flue symptoms that last for weeks is a great immune booster

I have kicked some major infections with this. Sinusitis, UTI's, Bronchitis, URI's. Haven't and won't take antibiotics anymore.
Olive Leaf Is Truly A Miracle herb
Yes there is a reason the dove carried an olive branch in the story of Noahs Arc. There is a reason and a season for everything under the sun !!!
Had brast cancer sugery and three months later was hospitalized with mercer, there had been an out break in the during the time of my sugery, I thought I missed it because it showed three months later. The lab test had to be done twice, and when the test came back, I ask about the results, and the nurse said it was a good one. When the doctor opened the wound, clear fluid came out. I had been taking 1000mg a day after sugery. The doctor had not experience that in all his years of practice.
Andy, You need to start taking Milk Thistle. Nicknamed "Liver Transplant In A Bottle".
read the book - olive leaf extract by dr Morton Walker
Mia, Look into Blue Green Algae aka Hawian Algae. Studies have shown two groups of hiv+ patients taking BGA, The first group, the hiv load dropped. The 2nd group who took twice as much, their hiv load dropped so low that it could not be found in their blood test! LOOK INTO IT!!! :D
I have used olive leaf in a tea mixture teo or three leaves in hot water for about a year. During that time I was pregnant and nursing my new born child. She is 12 months now and doing very well. She has had all of her immunizations and not had one fever during the times that I have been nursing her. I am planning to stop nursing now and have been adding 1 teaspoon of my mild tea mixture to her bottle I add one scoop of formula and 1/4 teaspoon of coconut sugar and 1 teaspoon of the olive leaf. I only have the olive leaf one time per day r she is doing very well. Again no fevers in her entire life and all of her immunizations are up to date. I am very pleased with olive leaf and with its results I drink the tea every day only 2 to 3 leaves in hot water I make sure I drink the tea throughout the day just sipping on it after I make the tea in the morning.
Last year we moved to a colder climate with more native trees and weeds of every kind I suffered from Bronchitis and then got Pneumonia and really bad sinus infections as the beginning of this years winter I got another lovely viral infection and hit it with Olive Leaf Extract, I have been taking it for one month, I still got slight flu like symptoms, ie. slight cough and slight runny nose but the olive leaf basically killed it and stopped it turning into anything nastier that a virus. My son is 4 years old and had 7 double doses of antibiotics last year and he got the same virus as me and I put him on it and it hasn't been sick since he's been taking it, it did seem to clean his sinuses at first tho, the first few days not long after I gave it to him he sneezed some big boogers (as he calls them) out. He's been great tho with no ear infections or anything now for that whole month, which is a first for him!!!!! I love Olive leaf extract and am going to keep us on it for the rest of our lives!!!!
russian olive is unrelated and im not aware of any similar uses...
Oil Of Oregano, not just oregano. Look into Activated Charcoal and Psyllium Fiber. (youtube is awesome).
I was advised by the pharmacist to take olive leaf extract as I am suffering with my 2nd cold within a Month. I informed him that I am 2 months pregnant and he said that it was ok to take BUT when I googled it, it say DON'T take it! Does anyone know if I can? Has anyone taken it?
Wal Mart. It's where I get mine.
The idea is to start slow and move up in dose. The reason for this is the Herxheimer reaction, which can occur if a person who has a serious infection or heavy toxic load suddenly takes a large therapeutic dose of olive leaf. Its a flu caused by the death of millions/billions of pathogens that are both active and/or dormant. The immune system and body will experience great stress if you don't gradually move into taking way more than a recommended dose. But theoretically anything can be cleared from the body with high enough dose. I started taking 1 150mg capsule of 20% Oleuropein 3 times a day. Then i moved to 3 caps. Then 6 and then even 10 at once. If you take larger doses, the only negative i noticed was sleeplessness and dehydration. So I just increase my water intake if i increase my dose to really knock something out. I think there is a threshold for effectiveness against the more serious/ life threatening diseases. I'm not aware exactly what the threshold in mg is and I'm sure its different for each person. I think it becomes very effect for me at about 3-4 times the recommended dose. Also, if you take high doses you have to avoid alcohol and other blood thinners for the 4-8hrs of time that the olive leaf is in effect.
A friend of mine was able to fully recover from the hell of multiple sclerosis. He began by changing their feeding almentação and followed according to your blood group. Then withdrew the dental mercury amalgams in a holistic dentist. He followed this with withdrawal infrared sauna. He wiped the body of parasites with Olveira extract, oil of oregano, Saccharomyces boulardii, woorwood, capsules and fresh cloves and black wallnut diatom earth. Then he took probiotic Dr. Ohhira's, Essential Formulas Inc., Probiotics, Original Formula. Then did a treatment with liver extract carrot juice made at home, n-acetyl cysteine took, took Alpha Lipoic Acid, took milk thistle, dandelion and artichoke, and selenium. Boldo then made into capsules that only 3 weeks. Did clearing liver and gall of Dr. Hulda Clark and then did a clean kidneys with nettle and chlorella. Excretory organs first cleaned and then started taking vitamins and nutrients when your body was able to absorb and metabolize them. The only supplements that remained from beginning to end and that it continues to take the pollen royal jelly capsules probiotics and olive leaf as well as cod liver oil and selenium and vitamin E. Once a week makes a deworming with wormwood, cloves and wallnut.A his full recovery took 4 years. Today 10 years have passed and he has a normal life.
I forgot to tell you about helminthic therapy and also he took and continue with B12 Methylcobalamine. Sorry about my english, I'm Portuguese and live in Portugal.Anabela
Surfergirl, Oil of Oregano has been proven to be more powerful at killing bacterial & fungal infections than ANYTHING, ANY Dr. can prescribe. If there's a viral infection, Drs. will say "There's nothing we can give You, You have to let it run it's course". Oil Of Oregano KILLS viral infections! Look into Doug Kaulfman. There is a lady on one of his programs who cured herself of ms. She wrote a book on it. The connection between fungus in the body and it causing ms is undeniable. STARVE fungus. Kill fungus. Corn and sugar are major contributors of feeding fungus, it thrives from it. This program will inspire, encourage, and inform you on how to win this battle. " Doug Kaulfman" "know The Cause",
Seems to help me with hayfever, no surprise.
I found that after 4 months usage it did not work for my viral load, it actually increased, my CD4 count was stable, but doubt that Olive Leaf works on the P24 of HIV as documented.
sometimes you get an increase at first because the virus is being dislodged from the nooks and crannies and goes on the run for its life. Thus a temporary spike in peripheral blood count. Sometimes something works only if you do it correctly and for long enough sustained therapy.The link below explains using the terms "Therapeutic dose"....which means a dose much higher than a label recommended dose. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pu...

I am a type 2 diabetic and also suffered from heart disease. Recently I experienced a hyper thyroid and my readings went for the worse. My thyroid is now under control but my readings were still not always so good. I started boiling olive leaves and the results were astounding. I am now consuming olive leaf tea every day and I feel great!
I have been taking olive leaf extract in capsule form for almost 2years now. One a day. I have not been sick once over this period despite my children being sick with colds and flu and colleagues at work also being sick. I lament the health benefits of olive leaf constantly. If I feel the slightest onset of a cold I will take 3-4 capsules a day for a few days and any symptoms will disappear. One of my daughters now takes it regularly whilst her identical twin sister is not so keen on swallowing capsules - so no surprise that the one that doesnt take it has had 2 bad doses of flu this year. I wouldnt be without it.
I used a tincture at first, then found out that raw dried leaves are excellent for tea. I never sweeten it or add anything, I get about a 1/2 cup or so of leaves and grind them down to about 1/4 cup in a coffee grinder and I put some distilled water on the stove until it wants to simmer but doesn't quite simmer, then pour water over the ground material in a funnel fitted with a coffee filter. It is very bitter but tolerable and I hold a large gulp in the mouth for about 15-30sec before swallow. It creates, for me, a similar sensation that a shot of whiskey does, that tingly rush in the back of the neck and top of head. Of course it doesn't intoxicate me at all, its more like coffee, except that the energy you get from it doesn't come from a altered brain chemistry, but rather from the 400X more powerful ORAC than the 2nd best antioxidant known, purging my body of every toxin and pathogen known. I used to have tooth aches from bad teeth becoming infected. I used to get cold's seasonally. I used to be lethargic and have mental fog. I used to wake up groggy. I used to have very smelly sweat. I cannot even focus long enough to list all the benefits I have personally experienced from taking this herb in significant quantities. I have about 40 or so other herbs that I also revere greatly, but I think olive leaf has won most of my attention. I am surprised it is not illegal: i.e. hemp.
To Dory (who is pregnant), I used olive leaf extract (30 drops in a shot of water, 1 to 3 times a day) throughout my pregnancy when ever I felt a cold coming on, which was frequently as I worked in a preschool at the time. My daughter was born in June of 2011 with no apparent side affects except that she has not been sick once in her whole 1 1/2 years. Whether or not that is just a coincidence, we will never know. A few weeks ago, she sounded a little stuffy so I gave her 10 drops in a shot of juice 3 times for 2 days and it completely went away. Good luck!
Don't know if any one else has experience this...I feel the circulation in my reproductive area stimulated! I have high blood, and needless to say the meds stop the "feelings"! I am feeling the "flow" NOW!
I hope I have the same effect! I have hbp and circulation problems too, as well as Raynaud's and Prinzmetal's Angina. Nothing doctor's have recommended have helped so I'm going to start with olive leaf extract. I'm glad I found your posting!
How long did it take for you to notice that change?
Why did it say not to use if you are a diabetic, if the first use is to stabilize blood sugar?
they want people to keep buying insulin, which costs an arm and a leg!
Live in Scotland Constantly fatigued --took it for 2 months 2 a day felt better then stopped to give my body a rest.
Started taking it again about one month later 1 cap first thing and was violently sick. 24hrs
Got over that and about two weeks later tried again same thing one cap made me so ill is was unbelievable. Constant puking for 24 hrs, wretched my gut up until nothing left but the retching continued even tho there was nothing left or so I thought- then about 14 hrs in I puked up about a gallon of bile this came out like a pressure hose.I was totally incapacitated and had to crawl to the toilet as my bowel was about to erupt at the same time.Lucky I made it. During the first 6-12 hrs my complete body was freezing I have never been so cold -and this was in front of a coal fire all wrapped up in many blankets and a sleeping bag but still freezing .( I have been in Chicago at -54 so I do know cold.After all that managed to get some sleep and woke up feeling great. Can anyone explain what happened.
Same thing happened to my brother in Canada after I introduced him to the miracles of Olive Leaf extract except he took it month on month off for 6 months before he developed a reaction same as me- All the best and would welcome any rational explanation
Sounds like die off. I have experienced this as well. Most likely if you take a small amount like 1/3 to 1/2 cap for a few days the increase by the same increment for a few days and so on, slowly increasing you will avoid this. Most likely it is this not an allergy. Even if you were taking more without these symptoms you can at some point hit a time where you have a big die off and have to back down. It can help to quit altogether and then start small and slowly increase.
Thank you Meagan. Very interesting response to John's enquiry. Best regards
Your symptoms sound extreme to just be die off. I would visit the doctor to see if something else is going on. You must have a recurring infection or something else was going on. Hope you never have a reaction like that again!
Can you please explain die off in more detail all the best from Scotland
John, Die off is when the poisonous microbes die. When they die, they excrete poisons into the body. That's what makes us feel so horrible. If we take too high of a dose of ole... we'll feel like we're dying!
I am into Olive leaves Extract now Please pray for my successBecause I have Hepatitis Beby the way how about the interaction between olive leaves and Milk thistle and Black seed Oil?
Lise, just because I like your Nordic Name, and you like olive leaves, I would like to send you some olive leaves that I fresh pick from my trees...free of charge, a gift of good will. Let me know if you would like this green goodness from Gold Country, California...
hi, i have been taking ole for about 1 week and got really sick fatigue muscle pain in legs arms like an acid build up in the body but just hurt all over started to feel faint on the edge of collapsing,then vomitted once thought i was dieing. i went to the hospital they said my bloods were fine and sent me home said i was dehydrated,so i went to a accupuncturist he said all my mouth tongue everything was so dry,dehydration.my tongue colouring was all off, he said there was something not right inside,,But after reading the die off afect maybe that is what it was,see i was taking the ole, but my body was not ridding itself of anything my bowels are all blocked up, so would it be maybe i should have bean taking something else as well to flush out the body quicker, please help as i am in so much pain i even thought i am about to have a heart attack or something...
how much did you take? we need to up our H2o big time.Activated Charcoal will whisk that garbage away. Psyllium fiber is great too. YOU NEED TO TAKE IT WITH A LOT OF H2O... (not quite a gallon a day.
It sounds like you did not completely kill off the problem. When you stopped the problem developed and unpleasant defense against the Olive leaf. So for a while you haad to cope with the defense of the bug. When you finally did him in you felt good again.
I had been having blood pressure problems for a few years and had been using nattokinase, potassium and magnesium to little avail. I went to the doctor, had tests and was scheduled to see him again in a month. The test shot my bp way up and so I decided to try olive leaves because I had read about them on line. I used dried leaves and every evening I made tea for my husband and me. I boiled the water and crumbled the leaves into the hot water, let it steep for about 7 or 8 min. then poured it through a strainer into our cups. I added a little stevia to sweeten and we drank it ...quite pleasant! When I went back to the Dr. he was surprised that my pressure was 125/75. Now it hovers between that and 135/85, mostly lower. My father had high blood pressure for many years and consequently had strokes and heart attacks. I guess I have a propensity too, but I won't let it happen. When I think of all the other good effects olive leaves have I will use them till I die of old age (hopefully).
Lise, because I love your Nordic name, you like olive leaves, and I have 15 olive trees...I will send you a bunch of fresh picked olive leaves, if you would like some free green goodness from Gold Country, California...just let me know. I've found a great way to eat 25 leaves a day by adding them to citrus smoothies...sour lemon balances the bitter, so does the creaminess of adding almonds and sesame and pecans...and a dash of maple syrup helps, too. I've had unexpected major improvement in the neuropathic numbness in my feet for just a month of eating fresh olive leaves daily. I have seen nobody else post that they eat these amazing leaves in the manner or quantity that I do. It's your choice to try this, too...I will help you.
hi, i'm in the valley and like to get some olive leafs, were about in gold country can i find the trees and some one to give me some?
HepC-2b infection from Hong Kong tatoo, 1976. Viral load Oct 2012- 15 million.May 2013 started olive leaf, 4- 150 mg caps, 3 times a day. 1000 mg Milk Thistle X 2. Viral load Sept 2013- 5 million. I will understandably continue, hope to reduce further. Fantastic
I had continuous sinus infections, UTI's and bronchitis. I haven't been sick with sinus infections or bronchitis in years now. I still struggle a little with UTI's but they are fewer and farther between. I have not had a cold in years either because of the olive leaf extract I've been taking. It really works and works great!

developed a UTI over the past few days. read about the Olive leaf extract and decided to try it. the taste is not good but I could see the results the very next day. if you have high blood pressure, you may want to be careful as it lowered my BP as well. I guess everyone's body is different. as far as energy, you will get that as I needed it for my Thanksgiving feast I am about to start. overall, I feel it works for a lot of things and I would recommend it to anyone
I have three olive trees in Florida and tea from the leaves is good, like any herbal tea, but I got the greatest benefit when I bought capsules from a local store where the guy gives advice. He said that properly extracted olive leaf preparations have thousands of times more effectiveness. I had no side effects in either case. I drink the tea from time to time and use the capsules for a specific case of infection. Today it's dental.
I got my capsules in today to start taking for EBV, I pray it does the trick and fixes me right up.
