Customer Question
Generally how quickly does...

Generally how quickly does Olive Leaf Extract take to prevent "breakouts" and shedding?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Will begin taking OLE in a few days. Visiting doctor tomorrow. Feel OLE can destroy virus and antivirals only suppress.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

He knows me. I never had STD before and want my life back asap.

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. Olive leaf extract is not effective in prevention of breakouts of asymptomatic shedding of the herpes virus. It does not work at all. Zovirax and valtrex can be used daily to prevent outbreaks and can almost eliminate asymptomatic shedding

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
