I'm new here and about to embark on the John of Ohio regimen. However, after a lot of reading, I'm wondering whether anyone has any more recent information / experience with olive leaf extract, as opposed to Lysine. I'm intrigued by the possibility that olive leaf seems to attack both the viral and fungal fronts, as opposed to Lysine which seems only to address the viral. I believe I even saw a post from a couple of years ago where John mentioned giving olive leaf a trial in place of Lysine, but despite multiple searches I haven't found any more recent information. I'm considering trying both simultaneously, because my main concern is preventing the disease from becoming bilateral. However, I have doubts about being able to take all the dosages on an empty stomach and far enough apart to prevent the reported conflict between Lysine and olive leaf. I'd appreciate it if anyone with more experience could offer any information or advice regarding these two approaches.
