I know its anti-candida, but not very strong. I always bought it in capsules.

olive leaf extract is an anti-everything (bacterial, fungal, microbial, viral, protozoan, malarial, oxidant, inflammatory) and an immune booster.

careful with this stuff it can hit you hard and you must pulse it. check the old posts for more info.

Here is a read for you in case you are interested:

/draxe.com/olive-leaf-benefits/

I tried olive leaf extract. I have read here how powerful it is on this board. Unfortunately for me, it didn't appear to do anything for me (I didn't react to it at all). But that seems more uncommon experience though!
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but doing great now!
Kid#2: Still sick now despite being treated for years but doing better (not well yet).
Kid#3: Generally good but relapsing off/on.
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids)-not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue and yeast issues (heart/kidney issues resolved)
Treating with herbals now.

Yes.

Oil of Oregano capsules were found to be just as effective against persistors as IV Daptomycin in the John Hopkins side by side study so that's an option too.

from the link: "In Moroccan medicine, olive lead is infused in order to stabilize blood sugar and control diabetes.

Oleuropein, one of the primary compounds in olive lead, has attracted attention since the early 1900s because of its antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties. Studies have found that oleuropein, which is a polyphenol, is a potent antioxidant that lowers blood pressure naturally and prevents cardiovascular disease. Oleuropein proved to be powerful when it made tumors in animals regress or disappear within 12 days."

I think I'll try it again since candida tried to come back and say "hello", plus my BP and BS could still go a little lower. I'll test my blood sugar to see after a few weeks.

Dr Axe needs to improve proof reading. Anyway I think I'll try this again and watch BP and blood sugar.

I bought some Olive Leaf capsules from Nature's Way after reading about it in one of Buhner's books. He made it sound like a good thing, but after I bought it, I couldn't remember why I bought it or what it was as supposed to do.

Anyway, two nights ago I took some. Bottle said 3 capsules daily and Buhner said 3 capsules after eating a fatty meal, so I took it after supper. Yesterday I noticed I had more joint and foot stiffness and when I squatted down, I could hardly get up as my muscles were weak. I didn't make too much of it at the time.

Took the olive oil again last night same way - 3 capsules after supper. Woke up at 5:30 this morning with a headache, stiff joints, soreness in back of head, and feeling dehydrated. After a while, I started having bowel movements - looser than usual and multiple trips. Felt better after that but kind of wiped out.

I recently started d-limonene and also have been taking more Candicid Forte, so I wasn't sure which one was making me feel bad. After searching for posts on Olive Leaf, seems like this might be the one. What do you think?

Should I not be taking it at all, or should I stop and start slower? Does it have to be taken daily or can I take it randomly?

It's not a cyst buster or biofilm buster is it?

Olive leaf is indicated for klebsiella infections, sometimes yeast and Buhner recommends it for mycoplasma. It's also a strong antioxidant.

Only contraindication is that it raises histamines, so if you're histamine sensitive be aware.

When i first started taking OLE i was having major liver and gallbladder pains. Liver flushes helped. I take this as the OLE was killing stuff off and my sluggish bile flow was backing up more with toxins.
What you describe could be die-off, or like i mentioned in the previous post, it could be a histamine reaction if you are sensitive to that as OLE raises histamines, though your symptoms sound more die-off to me.
Try easing up on the dose and upping your detox, see ifvthat helps. If it does, start back up slower, olive leaf can be potent for some

Aerose,

Thank you so much for responding. This sounds exactly like what I'm experiencing. Later today, after I posted this, I was having upper abdominal pain and it was sore to the touch. Not sure if it's the liver or stomach organ, but it feels like it has something to do with stomach acid or bile.

I laid down, and it got worse. When I got up, I started having terrible, relentless belching. I took 2 GasX before supper, but I'm still suffering. I hope I can stop it before bedtime. It's giving me chest pain, too. Feels a lot like the silent reflux that preceded the sudden onset of IBS-C going on 3 years ago.

I'll skip the Olive Leaf and the D-limonene tonight. I think the d-limonene reduces stomach acid, so I think it's playing a part in this too.

When it all passes, I'll try the Olive Leaf again and go lower and slower. I don't want to lose my liver.

I have taken it before and also felt nothing as compared to the Lysine which I feel healing a cyst. I have been taking it for a couple months in conjunction with. I would feel the Lysine aggravate the cyst within an hour. This used to be a bit discomforting but I feel the cyst less and less over time so I know the Lysine is working.

I have read Olive Leaf should be standardized at 24% oleuropain to be effective but it is difficult to find over 18% so I just take more.

Gallbladder is the upper right quadrant of your abdomen, right under the top part of your rib cage. It's not uncommon for us to have slow bile flow due to gallstones

Aerose,

Yes. That's the spot where it feels sore. I did have a Hida scan on my gallbladder 2.5 years ago when those symptoms first started and were the worst. They said the results were normal. I'll try the olive leaf again and go lower and slower. It definitely cleaned out my bowels somehow.

Thank God your HIDA scan came back normal. Their solution is never lets try to heal the gallbladder but to cut it out of you.

There is an acupuncture meridian that is strictly gallbladder. If your gallbladder needs support many of these points will likely hurt so good when stimulated with massage or acupressure. Acupuncture can stimulate healing as part of a balanced treatment which includes optimized nutrition but even a foot massage focused on the meridian points can feel amazing.

My favorite trouble spot is GB43 (Xiaxi) located on the dorsum of the foot between the fourth and fifth metatarsals 0.5 cun proximal to the margin of the web at the junction of the red and white skin. In English that's the top of the foot about an inch below where your pinky toe meets your fourth. There are a few located along this line that runs in between the bones.

If I get needled there the stress just melts away and I get so relaxed I have fallen asleep on the table. What a wonderful way to dive deep into your favorite meditation!

I dont really understand the effects you mention this can have on the gallbladder, I have been eating raw olive leaves for a while now and it may have helped a little without any issues but the thing is I have no gallbladder.
