I have found that olive leaf extract in the capsule form is supposed to be good for the immune system and that it has helped people recover quicker from infectons even from viruses... I was wondering if you had heard of this herbal medicine or if you have others that you like to use for your own health issues. Please share what herbal medicine you take, in what form you take it (tea, tincture, capsule, pill, etc.), what you take if for and its effects... Thanks.

I take tons of herbal remedies. I take Biphidopalus or something like that. It is a Pro-biotic to boost the immune system. I also take Arabanogalacin which boosts the immune system too. And, I take two things for allergies. One is Nettle root and the other one is Feverfew. I take some other stuff that I just started taking too but, I don't know how they work, if they work yet. I also take something called HCP-X and, it also boosts my immune system. Some of them have ginger which I understand is healthy for the immune system and, one of them has olive leave extract in it too. Unfortunately, I caught the cold the hubby brought home and there was nothing I could have done to stop it. But, I will continue to take my immune meds as I know they have helped me before.

Hi I include some herbs and spices as part of my regular diet. This is very good for general health. My family uses Ayurveda for the primary medical needs. Ayurveda is based on herbal medicines.
