Hmmmm I tried oliv leaf but it didnt help me in any dramatic way. But then as with all herbs sometimes you ned to stay on for three to six months to build the effect and I am too impatient for that. I know peopel who swear by it for herpes though so it is worth a try. If you find that herpes stresses you out alot try siberian ginseng, I found it a great help when I was going through my darker days of living with herpes and was worrying all the time. Worrying is the BIGGEST immune killer of them all. Siberian ginseng chills you out and relxation is an invaluable tool in not getting outbreaks/them clearing up quicker of you do get them.
One thing is if you do try the olive leaf you need to get the ones with at least 17% oleurpein which is the active ingredient. I think its solgar or solray that does the one that I got.
