I've heard some good things about taking Olive Leaf to help with Lyme. Has anyone else heard or taken this and if so- can you take with Doxy?
Thanks and Happy New Year!

People take olive leaf for a lot of different things. It is an anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-septic.

Technically, you should talk to your LLMD before adding anything. However, olive leaf is not known to interact with anything.

I only took it for a little while and didn't notice it doing anything. Maybe I didn't use it for long enough or at an effective dosage.

I took it with Doxy for 9 months per my doctor's instructions. I'd like to think it helped!

Oilve Lead was one of the main herbs I used when I got off abx. It's an amazing herb that kills all sorts of pathogens. It's also really helpful in systemic Candida. One of the products I used and also recommend to all my lyme clients has olive leaf extract in it and we have amazing results.
It's also safe to take with abx. Best bet, take half the recommended dose and start slow

I use olive leaf as it gets rid of my chronic UTIs. My LLND was fine with me substituting it for the Lyme herbals as needed for the bladder. I got crazy die off! But I'm not on doxy.
