Multiple Sclerosis (Encephalomyelitis)
I have two questions.
First, is there any research or statistics related to the effects of Olive Leaf Extract on Multiple Sclerosis?
If this would help, which type of Olive Leaf product would you recommend?
I have found one experimental study done on rats
which showed a strong beneficial effect, although this is no guarantee it would be as effective in humans. The conclusion is annotated below. EAE is experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis and DOLE is dry Olive Leaf Extract.
I would suggest capsules if you wish to try it.
The results presented in this paper strongly suggest that DOLE-enriched diet has a beneficial effect in EAE in rats. Further studies in humans are required in order to investigate if DOLE could be a useful supplementary dietetic for the patients suffering from multiple sclerosis and other neuroinflammatory disorders.

The whole abstract can be seen here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?term=olive%20leaf%20extract%20encephalomyelitis
Second, is there any research or statistics related to the effects of Olive Leaf Extract on Lyme's Disease? Again, which product would you recommend?
Lyme's disease is listed in Dr. Morton Walker's book as one acted against by Olive Leaf Extract, but I am not aware of any research done which demonstrates this.
There is some anecdotal evidence, also on this website, but again, one would have to try it to find out.
A strong ethanolic tincture or capsules or half-doses of both would probably be a good way to go.
