Best Way to Take Olive Leaf Extract for Herpes...



QUESTION:

I have 20% OLE. In your article it says to take the largest dose recommended on the bottle. It says just to take one a day. So how many caps should I take to flush this out? They are 750 mg's.

Thank You


ANSWER:

Hi, and thanks for your question regarding the olive leaf extract for herpes.

Now with the OLE it's important to first understand that you cannot overdose on it. It's very safe to use and will not harm you at all. For OLE to get rid of the herpes simplex virus it must be taken in a high enough dosage and it must be taken long term. This is crucial.

If you have OLE containing 20% Oleuropein at 750 mg's then taking one capsule daily for 2 weeks then increasing to two capsules daily after that for the next 12 months would be wise (remember, it can take 12 full months to completely rid your body of the virus). Starting with one capsule for the first two weeks then increasing to two after this should prevent herxheimers reaction (for a refresher on this please read our herpes article again).

In addition, try and use the OLE as a topical treatment on your sores and blisters as well (this is also talked about and recommended in our article). This helps to get rid of the virus quicker and prevent further outbreaks.

Finally, don't forget about the other recommendations we suggest such as the "foods to avoid, foods to eat" and staying calm tips. These are also extremely important.

Hope this helps you.


Good luck and all the best,


Regards

Troy.

Best Cure for Herpes
by: Anonymous

After doing the olive leaf extract for a year. Can I go for a blood test? And am I going to get a negative result?
Thank you

Hi. Whether you get a negative result after taking the OLE for a year depends entirely on the strength and quality of the olive leaf extract you buy. We can't stress this enough. This is the reason why we only recommend Olivus OLE, because it's very high strength, laboratory tested and a very reputable brand. If you go with a brand such as this and you take it consistently every day without missing, then yes, you should test negative. there are no guarantees however. But we are yet to receive any feedback from clients telling us they've used the Olivus OLE and have still tested positive for the herpes virus after. Not one! On the contrary, we've received plenty of emails informing us that after taking the OLE for even just 6 months, and then getting retested, their results came back negative. That speaks in itself.

Once again though, do not purchase a cheap or low quality olive leaf extract supplement. It wont work. Here's the super strength Olivus OLE we recommend you use.

In addition to this, don't forget to follow our full protocol. Here it is if you haven't already viewed it... Natural Herpes Cure.

Finally, make sure the ONLY test you get is an IgG test. All other tests are not accurate and are a waste of time. You can also test yourself using the grapefruit/orange juice test. Have a read of this recent Q&A article for more information on this... Herpes Testing - What Works, What Doesn't, and Where to go From Here.

Hope this helps.

Good luck and all the best to you!

Will Test Results Come Back Positive After Being Off the Olive Leaf Extract?
by: Anonymous

After taking the olive leaf extract for a year and let say you do stop taking it, after being off of it for 6 months, if you get retested for the virus will it still come up negative?

Feb 03, 2016

by: Troy (Admin)

If you stopped taking the OLE after a year and then got retested 6 months later would the test still come back negative? It shouldn't, however, in all honesty we haven't heard from anyone doing this. Most people continue on a maintenance dose of the OLE just for insurance (they are probably too scared to stop taking it just in case).

As always though, the final choice is yours.

Hope this helps.

Combination of OLE & Oregano Oil
by: Edward L

Hello Troy, I have read from various sources claiming the use of Oregano Oil to eradicate the Herpes virus, along with a long term clean eating diet. From your experience, is it safe to use both Oregano Oil & Olive Leaf Extract as a combination to combat this stubborn virus? What's your take on Oregano Oil?

Thank you so much for your time.

Cheers,
Edward

Hi Edward. Oregano oil is essential for the eradication of the herpes simplex virus. When it's combined with olive leaf extract and colloidal silver, along with an organic raw food diet, it becomes a very powerful treatment. It does take time to work though, especially if you've had the virus in your system for a number of years. That's why we recommend a full 12 months to get rid of the virus. You can read our full article and protocol here... Natural Herpes Cure.

Hope this helps.

Recommended Highest Dose P/Day of OLE?
by: Edward

Hello Troy, I am in the midst of planning my first purchase to eradicate the herpes virus. However, I'd like to what is the highest recommended dosage P/Day as I could not find the info at Olivus that I should be taking over the course of 6 months before going on the maintenance dose?

Moreover, is Olive Leaf Extract safe for those with weakened kidney function on a long term basis?

Thanks so much for your time.

Regards.
Edward

by: Troy

Hi Edward. The recommended amounts for the OLE are listed on the side of the bottle, but here they are anyway... The recommended maintenance dose for the super strength OLE (OliveLeafMAX) is one capsule per day. The highest recommended dose is two capsules per day, which is taken for the first 6 months. However, if you have weakened kidney function then start on one capsule per day and stick with this for 4-6 weeks before moving up to two capsules a day for the 6 month required period. OLE is perfectly fine for long term use, but in the beginning the "die off" effect (herxheimers reaction) can put extra stress on the liver and kidneys, so this is why it's better to start off with the lowest dosage and build up. You can read more about this here... Cautions for OLE.

Hope this helps Edward.

All the best to you.

We are required by law and the FDA to put that statement in.

Taking 66mg in 15ml doses
by: Barnabus

I have been advised to take a daily dose of 15ml (oil form, not tablet) of OLE with 66mg of Oleuropein for 6 months to a year to cure herpes. Can you advise if this is enough?

No Barnabus, this is nowhere near enough. You need at least 250 mg's of PURE oleuropein each day. Please take the time to read our full article on treating herpes for more information on this. Also remember, olive leaf extract is only one part of the herpes protocol... Natural Herpes Cure.

Taking OLE supplement. Is it safe while pregnant?
by: Anonymous

Is it safe to take this supplement to get rid of herpes while pregnant? I'm currently 7 wks pregnant and just found out I'm carrying the virus through a blood test. Never had an outbreak though. I don't want to wait for the virus to strike so I would like to start taking the supplement while it's still inactive. Any advice?

Outbreak while taking Olivus MAX
by: Anonymous

Hello, I purchased the Olivis MAX and have been taking 4 a day for about a month. However, recently I have had another outbreak. Is this a normal reaction? Should I expect more outbreaks for a couple more months? Or should I continue to up the dosage to keep symptoms at bay until the virus is completely eradicated?

-Thank You!

Jul 27, 2016
Reply
by: Troy

It's not uncommon to still get outbreaks in the beginning, however, the recommended maximum dosage for the Olive Leaf Max is two capsules per day. Four is definitely too much in the beginning while your body is detoxing. Back off the dosage to two per day (one in the morning and one at night on an empty stomach) and you'll likely be fine. And don't forget to combine the OLE with the other recommendations as well!

All the best to you.

OLE
by: Edward

Hello Troy. Do u think Olive Leaf Extract & Oregano Oil work just as well in eradicating the virus without Colloidal Silver? I am aware these 3 are the recommended protocol but I am trying to minimise exposure to too many types of health supplements & also due to financial constraint.

Thanks so much for your time.

Jul 29, 2016
Reply for Edward
by: Troy

All 3 are certainly the ideal Edward, however, if you were to only use the OLE and oregano oil, at least make sure these are the highest quality you can find. And following a raw food diet is extremely crucial to the success of this protocol so make sure you adhere to this 100%.

Hope this helps.

Lead in Olive Leaf Extract?
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy,

You write in one of your first answers that in order to test negative you need to detox your body completely of all heavy metals. What strikes me is the lead contained in the Olivus olive leaf extract (have not looked for it in their other products) which is tested for up to 3 ppm - this is over the limit in California. That should cause some concern, don´t you agree? California-Prop-65 Law.

Aug 24, 2016
Reply
by: Troy

The California Prop 65 law does nothing except create mass confusion (why are they the only state that has this law?) The reason Olivus and other supplement companies say their products contain lead is because ALL supplements, natural foods, herbs, etc, contain trace amounts of lead (organic lead, mind you, not the heavy metal form). They are all required by California law to put this statement in. 3 ppm is a minuscule amount anyway. There's actually a push to try and get this ridiculous law changed...

"The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment is considering a petition to repeal or amend the safe harbor level for lead. This would be a great help for natural product manufacturers and marketers since lead is in all natural products and the required warning creates more fear and confusion than good. Lets hope this amendment passes."

Remember that the lead contained in natural foods and supplements is ORGANIC, not heavy metal lead. The two are completely different. Our body's actually need trace amounts of organic lead (along with other organic trace minerals such as nickel, arsenic, cadmium, mercury, etc) to function. Organic trace minerals are 100% safe and actually help in the detoxification process. So once again, organic trace minerals are NOT heavy metals! Don't confuse the two. Hopefully the California Prop law gets amended very soon.

There is no cause for concern.

Dosage

I've been taking olive leaf MAX, the one you recommend, for a year (two a day). I became pregnant and stopped taking them then when my ob gave me the okay I started taking one a day. I just upped my dose because I'm close to my due date and I had an outbreak. Is this normal? Does this mean it's working? I've only had one OB until now.

Increased Outbreaks
by: Tiffany

Hi Troy,

After reading this page regarding the OLE, I went ahead and purchased it. Previously I have been using Acyclovir over the years. I haven't had a cold sore in almost 2 years and very seldom get genital lesions. I started the OLE 2 weeks ago at a higher dose and was fine but suddenly I have been having OB's now back to back. One lesion or cold sore clears then another appears. Could the OLE have "awakened" the virus and be "driving" it out? I stopped my antiviral meds as I could tell they were just suppressing the virus. I am also on an alkaline diet along with taking OLE and L-Lysine. I just want to know could my body be going through what is called a healing crisis? I also became ill a few days ago (cough, sore throat, runny nose). It's like my body is going haywire.

Hi Tiffany. Having increased breakouts after starting on the OLE (and oregano oil and colloidal silver) is very common. When your body is detoxing, heavy metals, toxins AND viruses that are residing in your body are being driven out. Unfortunately, this can result in the phenomenon known as herxheimers reaction... Olive Leaf Side Effects - A Temporary Worsening of Symptoms. When you are infected with the herpes virus, this will also cause more breakouts (a temporary worsening of symptoms) as the virus is being eradicated. My good mate James from Destroy Diseases says... "As time goes on, the outbreaks will become less and less aggressive and last only a few days. This is a general rule of thumb and everybody is different. This will occur until the body is completely detoxed and the virus has been destroyed". (DestroyDiseases.com.

The best course of action would be to back off on your current dosage and slowly build it back up again over a period of several weeks. There is no rush with this. Try and also incorporate the oregano oil and colloidal silver into your plan too if you can... Natural Herpes Cure Protocol.

Stay on the alkaline diet, and remember, organic raw foods are the key!

Hope this helps.

All the best to you.

It's important to remember that the olive leaf extract is not a silver bullet. Taking it on it's own and not following a raw food/clean eating diet will not work. Artificial chemicals and pesticides contained in regular supermarket fruits and vegetables, along with processed foods, interfere with the effectiveness of the OLE, as well as other detoxing foods such as the oregano oil and colloidal silver. If you took the OLE for a year and now after going back on it, are getting outbreaks then the virus was only suppressed, not destroyed. The full protocol is needed to completely eradicate the virus... Natural Herpes Cure Protocol. However, it can be difficult to follow this exact regimen when pregnant. Although there is no harm in taking the OLE when your pregnant, I would recommend you begin the full protocol properly after you give birth (and things are back to normal) to destroy the virus for good.

Hope this helps.

All the best.

High dosage OLE
by: Anonymous

I found an olive leaf supplement at GNC that's 1000mg with 97.5mg OLE. I haven't seen anywhere else that it comes in such a high dosage. Is this right? Would it be OK to take it?

Nov 21, 2016
Reply
by: Troy

The most important ingredient in olive leaf extract for destroying any virus or pathogen, and what you need to concentrate on is a substance called Oleuropein. The GNC brand of olive leaf extract only contains a dismal 10% or 97.5 mg's of Oleuropein. You need at least 25% or 250 mg's of pure oleuropein (see our "natural herpes cure" article for more information on this). That's why we recommend the OlivusMax olive leaf extract... OlivusMAX capsules. This contains a solid 25% Oleuropein PER CAPSULE (50% per serve). It's the strongest and most absorbable OLE available anywhere in the world. We advise you don't bother with the GNC brand. It's not strong enough, and when you do the maths, it still costs around the same price as the Olivus OLE anyway?

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Need Guidance
by: Struggling

Hello. I have HSV2. I have been taking the Olivus Oliveleaf MAX 25% for 7 weeks, 6 pills a day (usually all at one time in the morning on an empty stomach). I still have been getting outbreaks since starting the pills. I've had three since I started. They are significantly less intense (4 days in length) and don't require anything topical for them to go away. However, they are actually more frequent now. I was having maybe one outbreak a month (outbreaks would usually be one or two small blisters). I'm unsure of how I should be taking the pills, if I'm taking them properly, and if I'm taking too many. Is what I'm experiencing with the more frequent outbreaks likely viral shedding? I know I can be cured of herpes if I take the olive leaf consistently for up to a year. Is it too soon to expect a stop in outbreaks?

Nov 28, 2016

by: Troy (Admin)

Initially you can get more frequent outbreaks as the virus sheds a goes on what we like to call "a rampage at your expense". These will lessen over time. The amount of Olivus OLE you are taking is excessively high, which would account for the more frequent outbreaks. Two capsules in the morning and two capsules at night would be more than enough. Always try and break up the dosage. Taking them all at once could also be what's causing your frequent outbreaks. In addition, remember that the OLE is only one part of the protocol. The oregano oil, colloidal silver and BHT all combined work exceptionally well together. The BHT is excellent for stopping any outbreaks. You should definitely be taking this. Don't forget also that what you eat every day is crucial. Plenty of raw foods. It would be a good idea to have a read of our Natural Herpes Cure article once again for a refresher.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you. :)

Herpes

I was diagnosed with the herpes virus a couple of months ago. I've never had an outbreak but sometimes I used to have a lot of itching down there. I read up on herpes and I have the symptoms. I've been taking olive leaf extract, BHT, lysine and colloidal silver together for 2 months now. I also watch carefully what I'm eating. I know it says that it takes 12 months for the virus to be gone but I was wondering when should I go and get retested to make sure it's working.
When I visited the doctor and took the test the doctor told me I had the virus in my butt not my vagina. How is that possible? Plus, I used to have sexual intercourse in my butt and didn't lubricate and I development soreness. I ask the doctor to look at it and she said it was herpes. It went away and was better after 2 to 4 days though? I didn't take the acyclovir meds they gave me. I went back a couple of days later and they took blood work. They told me it shows I have the herpes virus and if I don't have any outbreaks then don't worry or don't take any meds. But if I do then come back for meds and counselling and stuff. I never received any results in writing in the mail about that test?

Firstly, yes, you can get the symptoms of herpes in and around your anus. What you need to do, however, is make sure that you had the correct herpes test done. ONLY the IgG test or Western blot test is accurate. These are the only tests you should consider. Ask your doctor to see the test results and ask what test was done. This is your right as a patient. You may want to consider being retested by an independent lab such as Labcorp or STD Check... STDcheck.com. Have a read of this recent Q&A we did on herpes testing so you have a full understanding on the different tests available, along with where you need to go from here... Herpes Testing - What Works, What Doesn't, and Where to go From Here. It would be wise to wait at least 6 months before getting retested, at least. However, you may not have been tested correctly in the first place so this may make it difficult to review against your current IgG test (if that's what you had done).
