Olive Leaf--Effective Therapy Against Viruses, Bacteria

  [ 38 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • September 11, 2000


A natural alternative to antibiotics and for treatment against immune deficiency ailments such as CFS and FM may be as close as the nearest olive tree. Although picking a leaf won’t get you better, a powder made from this common tree has been used for centuries for its healing properties.

One of the ways Olive Leaf Extract works is to act as a virucide--a virus killer. Many viruses are known to plague people with CSF and FM. The powdered extract of the olive leaf contains elenolic acid, a component that effective fights both viruses and retroviruses.

Olive Leaf Extract also is a powerful anti-fungal. This means it can aid in the battle against common yeast that many consider to be the root of many symptoms suffered by those with CSF and FM. The way it works is by disrupting viral amino acid production. By not allowing replication of the virus, Olive Leaf further acts as a viral killer.

The extract also combats bacteria. Studies in Israel have found that the substance was even effective against streptococcus.

Those undertaking a regimen of Olive Leaf will undergo a temporary side effect called the Herxheimer reaction or “die-off.” In this reaction, olive leaf’s medicinal properties are killing off organisms. This in turn creates an immune response in the individual’s system. While this response is occurring, a person’s symptoms may temporarily worsen.

However, despite this temporary effect, Olive Leaf is non-toxic. According to biochemist Arnold Takemoto, olive leaf extract works for fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome by slowing down organisms’ reproductive cycle and letting the patient's immune system take over.
