Question about nausea.
Last year I took six 500 mg. OLE capsules per day with no side effects. Went off for a few months and then started again. This time I took one and after two hours became violently ill for a few hours; until it was gone, I think. Tried it again with part of a capsule - same result. Any suggestions? I'd like to use it again if I can stop the vomiting.
Assuming the capsules are the same brand that you took previously, and have not been contaminated in the mean time somehow, (even the outer capsule), and you have not started taking any other medication, I'd guess you have become intolerant to olive leaf.
I have never heard of this happening before, even with people who take it permanently but it may be possible.
A similar thing happened to my whole family taking organic chlorella powder. We were fine for a week then suddenly all of us started throwing up on the same day. I tried a smaller dose again a week later in case it was something we all ate and I had the same result. The powder may have had some organism growing in it that reached a toxic level, although intolerance to chlorella is fairly common.
Perhaps other people will comment when they see this post and we can ascertain if yours is an isolated incident or something that others have experienced.
I can only otherwise suggest you try a tincture - in a much diluted small dose - to see if it could be the product itself.
