Olive Leaf for Cancer

Buy olive leaf powder
Freshly dried olive leaf has been shown to eliminate cancer tumors in relatively short periods of time.  Some tumors in mice were eliminated with the oil of the olive tree also in as little as 12 days.  There have been many stories and studies done on the olive leaf extract and all were found to be successful except with the combination of chemotherapy treatment.

A man from Athens, Greece cured his cancer using fresh olive leaves and water.  He used approximately 1 1/4 cups of fresh leaves and 750 mg of water and blended the lot thoroughly.  He was recommended to do this by his doctor who showed good luck with this and she advised there was no interaction with other medicines or therapies.  The remedy must be kept in the refrigerator all day and drank in 3 sessions on an empty stomach. Newer leaves are better than the older ones as they contain more nutrients.

1 1/4 cups of fresh leaves equals approximately 1/3 cup of dried leaves.  Each capsule contains 1/4 teaspoon, so in essence he was taking 80 capsules a day of olive leaf.  It took him 1 year to cure his cancer.  This was reported 6 years ago. The man who cured his cancer suggested following this routine for life.  

Side Effects and Drug Interactions with Medicines

Olive leaf does have side effects and may interact with prescription medicines and increase their reactions.  Side effects of olive leaf are:
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Muscle and Joint pain
  • Feverish
  • Sore throat
  • Vaginal irritations and/or yeast infections

These side effects usually last temporarily and associated with a herxheimer's reaction.  Prescription interactions are definite though.  Olive leaf lowers high blood pressure; do not take olive leaf if you are on blood pressure medicine.  Do not take olive leaf if you are pregnant and do not take olive leaf if you are on diabetic medicine or medicines that inhibit blood clotting and platelet aggregation, such as warfarin (Coumadin®), heparin, clopidogrel (Plavix®), pentoxifylline (Trental®). It is better to contact your doctor before beginning any herb when you are taking prescription medicine. 

Olive Leaf Dosage for Cancer

There are many opinions on the proper dosage of olive leaf. I have taken olive leaf for years and have never had any die-off effect, but sometimes the herxheimer reaction will be due to a large amount of toxins and microbes being eliminated at once.  To eliminate and/or reduce the side effects increase fluids.  If the reaction is still strong stop the dosage until the side effects leave. You may want to start out slow and increase gradually over time.

My prescription for the flu and colds is 21 capsules of dry leaf powder all at once and then 9 capsules per day. This remedy will eliminate the flu or cold in 4 hours or less (usually).  This is also the prescription that the Barefoot states on his supplements too. Other doctors suggest 500mg to 1000mg of olive leaf extract given 3 times a day.  Each capsule has approximately  360mg of olive leaf extract.  

The man above who cured his lung cancer used 80 capsules of olive leaf though.  In my opinion 9 capsules of the dried leaf has been found to have the best results.  Extracts are made with 8 parts water.  Keep in mind that dried olive leaf is less potent than the full extract.  So my remedy is for the dried leaf only.  You can read a very good article on how to prepare a dried plant extract: Making Extracts

Recent Studies on Cancer and Olive Leaf

Recent studies have shown that taking olive leaf extract has been seen satisfactorily with cancer elimination, but one study warned that using olive leaf in combination with chemotherapy was not adviseable.

Olive leaf has been shown to eliminate cancer tumors in skin, colon, lung, breast and leukemia.  It has been shown to be a broad spectrum cancer fighter.  

 "Olive leaf extract improves your white blood cells' ability to kill cancer cells and carry them away to be eliminated from your body," according to Russel L. Blaylock, M.D., in his book, "Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients." He further stated, that the cancer patient should concentrate more on changing his diet rather than increasing supplementation.
