Hello - I have just started taking olive leaf extract to try and get rid of recurrent/persistent UTI (last test showed e coli). I also take D Mannose and am on nightly dose of Nitro. I have read that olive leaf extract is effective against e-coli. Has anyone tried it? I have also read that it might have a herxheimer(?) effect when you first start taking it - I think this means that you might feel worse as the bacteria start to break down but need to look it up again . It sounds right if that is the case as I have felt worse since starting it yesterday. Does anyone know anything about this?
