olive leaf extract

Recommended Posts


I wanted to know if anyone has had any good experience with olive leaf extract. I was using oil of oregano for three months but then i got an outbreak..so i'm not sure if it was working or not. But, I was just curious if anyone had any success. Thanks!

I LOVE Oil of Oregano for the viral part of this disease. Oral HSV (1 or 2 who knows) seems to respond well to Oil of Oregano for me!!

Red wine also Rocks for me for any Oral Sore.

Down below - cool and dry works for me. I use Rubbing Alcohol (91%) Seems to stop the crawling in it's tracks. Hurts but goodness I think when we have this hell we are sorta used to pain at this point - lol. I'll let you know next time.

I'm trying being off suppressive and zinc blocking. Hmm. Jury out so far. Less of an OB this time.

Monolaurtin - total crock of shit so far.

Olive Leaf - take it - feel pretty good with it. Like it better than Lysine so far. Lysine did nothing for me.

Valtrex - lol. Yeah I want my immune system to deal at this point. Haven't gotten anything to write home about with this renal toxic drug that sorta kinda but doesn't totally work and costs a lot.

I tried olive leaf extract and i had a really bad "die off" from it, the ob was worse than my primary and tbh i just suffered from near constant prodomes for the time i was taking it - this caused me constant anxiety and thus caused me more obs. For some people its fab but for me not so good.

I'm using OoO and i think its brilliant some people take a high dosage of it but i'm just taking between 2 - 4 drops per day. I think i had the smallest ob ever last week no bump or redness, no lesion i just know it was there and it lasted 2 days tops. I put a bit of OoO on a Q-tip and wiped the area. (NOT RECOMMENDED) but for me i think it helped.

Let us know how you go on if you do, good luck.

      I had my first outbreak in June, very close to the date of your post. I healed up before the end of the month and it was about as many as you mentioned. I have gHSV1. The test was done on the left under the head of my penis because I had mostly healed by the time I made it to the doctor. There has been pain ever since in that one spot, but there hasn’t been any outbreaks. There are visible red spots that seem to linger forever. I’m a little concerned about this. Overall I’m lu it it is bite type 2 and I am doing my best to manage it. I hope you are doing well also since June. My wife and I (who I think I got it from) use condoms to prevent her from contracting it genitally. It’s a much more serious problem for women than men, as it can be internal for them and affect childbirth. Condoms are critical until a cure comes around, and there looks to be promising research. Hope you are well.

      I have been suffering from nerve pain after my first outbreak in June. Today I tried a charlotte’s web salve product and it took the pain away. I wouldn’t use it during an active outbreak though for risk of spreading it.

      Unfortunately that is the most common place men get infected!

      They are not the yardstick that you measure your worth with! It also tells you something about each and every one of them! To the ones you treated you well before I would personally talk to them and see if that was actually what he said to them? Maybe he said something different?

      I just disclosed to a man who works in the medical field and he didn't make a big deal at all. He shared his sti results w me I didn't see HSV1 on the test report, so I asked him about it and that opened up the discussion. The discussion of it was maybe 2 sentences tops. That was reassuring. We've since had sex and there was no hesitation or weirdness. So I recommend dating people w medical knowledge
