Ciara and Linda, thank you. I've had huge success in just a few weeks with Olive Leaf Extract. After 1 week I had a little fever and then a strong headache and sore throat, then in 2 days it passed and I've felt very clean and energized since, and my creativity has exploded in just 1 week.
Ciara great sites for Olive Leaf. It really appears to be a truly natural super medicine in it's ability to disable so many bacteria, virus's, and immune harming bugs so the body can do it job and defend. Just amazing! I'm in winter also and I've never felt better, so much energy.
And Billy, thank you for sharing. You brought back some memories with your story. I too had 2+ terrible years dealing with symptoms and allergies and then a year+ of healing and experimenting when I was 7-10. My mum too helped me a great deal and did all she could to solve my mystery which was much appreciated. Back then she helped my symptoms clear with a wheat/sugar free diet, yogurt, with lots of fresh vegetables.
I just want you to know I am know expert, I only know what has worked for my body through trial and error, and later made observations and guesses as to why. How virus's and allergies are connected is so complicated I think, and relates a lot to emotional health which directly impacts organ effectiveness.
In years of testing and experimenting Olive Leaf has had a truly profound effect on my body. My symptoms have completely disappeared in just 3 weeks, though in all honestly my health has been improving vastly this year.
What has worked for me the most:
- lots of exercise, especially walking, riding, swimming, and yoga/pilates.
- a vegan/fish diet, though now I'm mostly vegan. I eat for health, and respect anyone's choice of food as we are all different. For me, a dairy/meat free diet was very powerful in detoxing my body. Dairy and eggs (for me) restrict my toxin release, and the mucus (undigested proteins from which is common with dairy) clogged my body, chest and nose.
But only with healthy vegan food have I truly felt amazing. I can only describe it as feeling really clean and light, yet strong. (For men, beware of processed tofu and soy milk that perhaps influence testosterone levels and so your energy, and can also influence protein absorption. The high energy is also addictive.
- physical meditation, as a tool to release unpleasant emotions. I've found Vipassana very very helpful.
- vegie soup cleanses/herbal tea/green tea - as toxins are cleared from the liver the intestine and bowel can get pretty dirty. Green veggie soups (or a healthy vegan diet in general) are great for a clean. Herbal teas also do this powerfully.
I wish you well with your son's healing,
