Q AND A WITH SUE OCTOBER 2017
Q ) I have been using your Olive Leaf extract product for quite some time.
I have found it to be very effective.
I am a firm believer in your products and I have recommended it to many people that I know thus far.
My husband and I are going through the process of family planning.
I would like to continue using your Olive Leaf extract tablets during my pregnancy.
I would like to confirm the safety of doing so before, whilst and after pregnancy?
Thank you so much for producing such incredible products.
I am your biggest fan 🙂
A ) Thanks for believing and appreciating what grows on trees – God’s medicine! Here are links to provide more information about olive leaf and pregnancy. Although olive leaf remedies have been used by pregnant ladies to prevent malaria, I am not allowed to advise you. (MCC regulations stipulate that the product should not be used to diagnose or treat a condition.) Then why take it? Ha Ha. If you have been using it to overcome candidiasis and are worried about it returning once you conceive, type CANDIDA into our search box and follow alternative protocols, especially topping up on our Probiotic – 15 and Calcium complex that are very beneficial for pregnancy and lactation.
The general rule with herbs is: if in doubt, don’t. That applies to the first trimester. The exception being with a herbal remedy that is helping to raise progesterone levels, like chaste berry or the sweet potato tincture, for example. If they suddenly quit on these immediately after conception we have found that it terminates the pregnancy as progesterone levels are critical and need to be maintained. I hope that sharing this will give you a head start! All the best with a happy event, we look forward to another Healthy Happy baby! Love, Sue and the Nature Fresh Team.

ME chronic fatigue nutritionists did not help her 2010 Q & A
Q ) I was diagnosed with ME 5 yrs ago and was so ill that I couldn’t get out of bed. My diet has been quite bad. I noted the blood type diet, BEST test and also candida comments on your website. My husband has spent thousands on tests/nutrionists and nothing has worked completely therefore I’ve also given up on eating only healthy foods and eat gluten/wheat/sugar.
During all this time I haven’t managed to clear my vaginal thrush!!! Even when I eat healthily – if I just eat one wrong thing it’s back! I used to eat yoghurt every day and all my tests could not show up anything and now I read on your website yoghurt is not good???!!!
Please could you let me know whether I should go for a BEST or Scio test and if the live blood analysis works as I’ve spent a fortune on blood tests but all come back as negative. I’ve been had saliva tests and hair tests sent off with no results. My nutritionist in the UK who ordered the last tests recommended glutamine for my leaky gut/candida which I never took.
Any sound good advice will be much appreciated. Thanks a lot
A ) You are one of many that have this problem. You do get disillusioned, I know. It is not about the money you spend. One cannot buy good results with expensive doctors or treatments. All you need is the right direction and some common sense. I do research and write about it for free! But you have to work at the diet and discipline to get the results. You also have to start believing that you can do it. You can!
1 The best diet in the world is not going to get rid of microbes and parasites that cause ME. They may help though; if they suit you and your blood type. This principle is inconvenient for most of them. Most of the media touts “eating healthily”. Did it work for you? There is a lot of confusion but they can still charge a fortune for what they say or do. You pay regardless.
2 A typical “nutritionist” does not believe we have intolerances based on our different blood types. Some of them don’t even understand the gluten or wheat problem. They think whole wheat is even healthier! These days most wheat is heavily GM and generates universal gluten sensitivity in a lot more people. Dairy? Look what has happened to milk – hormones, antibiotics and even cannibalism.
3 Deal with parasites. Also get a zapper for daily control. People who use our olive leaf tablets are usually free of systemic candidasis within 2-4 weeks. The Parasite Remedy has helped ME and CFS patients to lead a better life. A school teacher found a big step up from taking the olive leaf tincture. I gave her a sample of Parasite Remedy and she found even greater improvement.
4 The BEST and SCIO systems can list your microbial / parasite load. People are strange about candida. It is a species of benign yeast that all people have. It grows and feeds our friendly bacteria known as probiotics. So if you are deficient in probiotics you get too much yeast. The body then converts it into fungal or mould-like forms. 72 types of infections then can manifest as a result of being deficient in effective probiotics. (Please see the information about PROBIOTIC-15 to understand why we need more strains to grow inside us.)
5 Now you will be asking about the yoghurt! It only provides one measly strain: lactobacillus acidophillus. Coming with that is a lot of extra nutrition, the favourite food of two pathogens that cause leaky gut namely giardia and gardenerella lambus. How do we get rid of these nasties? Olive leaves! How do we control the microbes that “morph” from the surplus candida? Olive leaves! When I challenged a therapist to only give olive leaf and cut out the yoghurt, his patients immediately improved. A doctor had over 20 long term “candida” patients. Within 1 month of olive leaf tablet treatment they came right. Some of them still took yoghurt – oh well, not everybody has leaky gut.
6 As for vaginal thrush, this is interesting. We make tea tree based cleansers and lubricants that are helpful in most cases. Alkaline soaps exacerbate the problem. The friendly bacteria can only survive in an acidic medium, so I formulated these products to be acidic. Liquid probiotics are provided in a lactic acid medium. This is ideal for vaginal health. PROBIOTIC-15 can be diluted 5ml to 500ml and used as a douche in addition to the intimate products we make.
7 Glutamine is brilliant for the digestive system, especially the damaged gut lining. The body uses glutamine from expensive supplements the same way it does MSG. Both get converted to the alkaline chemical called glutamate. Yes, both the “evil, alien Chinese poison MSG” and your glutamine becomes the same thing so what does one believe? Please refer to the article I wrote about it. Taking the supplement on an empty stomach is risky because it can cause hypoglycaemia. (Yes, people don’t want to know this.) I have an article on suite 101 about MSG with all the links and facts. Google: sue visser suite 101 msg.
I hope this clears up the problems. Please also look at my articles on candida and probiotics on the suite 101 link on the website. Also see the notes about vaginal problems. I worked as a researcher for a gynaecologist for over 10 years and he supervised the writing of this material, based on the questions he asked me on a constant basis about this little place.

Natural gut bacteria?
Only about 10% of is actually human DNA. That is, the “microbiome” that surrounds us and includes our DNA is 90% made-up of microbes!
As a natural antimicrobial, olive leaf extract offers benefits over pharmaceutical antimicrobials because it does not kill beneficial bacteria, which can lead to an overpopulation of harmful bacteria. Nor does it exert any harmful side effects. (but it can lower blood pressure – too much!)
Even just a few surviving bacteria that develop resistance through genetic mutation or by having picked up genetic material from another antibiotic-resistant organism, these “superbugs” can quickly become a major problem. As you can see, the use of antibiotics actually helps create “superbugs” resistant to them. So, the overuse of antibiotics in counterproductive to health.
The zika virus and olive leaf?
“It is clear that microcephaly is known to be caused by pesticide exposure, and could just as easily be caused by vaccinations during pregnancy as it was likely to be caused by Zika infection.
These CDC scientists were only looking for causation from infectious agents. Nothing else seemed to matter. This exclusionary mindset was present since the very beginning of the Zika propaganda campaign.
They ignored the effect of the Tdap vaccine given to pregnant women in Brazil in 2015. They ignored the side effects of medications. They ignored the consumption of GMO food, glyphosate, and Pyriproxyfen that were widely used in Brazil. They ignored chemical exposure from Brazil’s large chemical manufacturing facilities. They ignored alcohol and drug use. They ignored the effects of extreme multi-generational nutritional deficiencies and extreme poverty. They ignored the introduction of genetically modified mosquitoes that were released in Brazil. They ignored exposure to rubella, toxoplasmosis, or cytomegalovirus. They ignored the combined effects of all these factors as well as multigenerational modifications to the local gene pool from these potential causes.
In other words, the US microcephaly incidence is much higher than Brazil, and our babies didn’t get it from Zika.”
