Now I believe
on May 21, 2014
I am not a big believer in pop science, and I didn't read the book word for word, but it cited so many studies from so many well-regarded sources that I gave olive leaf a try...and I am now a believer. Three capsules every three hours for three days cured an infection under my dental implants.
I was dreading having to undergo the removal of these implants to get to the problem, not to mention the expense. Olive leaf truly works and will now be the first thing I reach for when I need an antibiotic.
May 30, 2014 - it's 21 days later (review was written May 9 but published May 21) ...I was a little too enthusiastic, the product DOES work but takes longer than 3 days, actually took about 14 days for me to wake up one morning and realize that even the slight tingling of pain was gone. I really think that if I stopped taking olive leaf today the infection would be back in a few days. But I am still a believer and will continue to take this stuff daily, tho I am down to 2 capsules 3X per day.
It also seems to have managed the considerable inflammation from arthritis that causes me so much grief. I have seen a clear improvement in mobility since beginning olive leaf, a benefit that was unexpected and truly beneficial. I am just amazed that taking powdered leaf each day has had this effect. I know that 90% of our meds come from plant sources, but I am surprised and delighted that taking powdered leaves each day has had such a profound effect...thank you, Mother Nature!
