Thanks Wombat I am taking 500 mg per day will slowly increase. I am at my wits end because of the hair loss and now and wondering if it could be candida, I have always been adamant that it is not because I have never had a yeast infection but still many of the symptoms ring true for me. Going to take coconut oil as recommended on this site and other sites to help with the hair loss. I am reading up on natural cures for candida. None seem particularly challenging, my thought is to implement an anti-candida diet/protocol. See if anything positive happens. Possible that I may be barking up the wrong tree but i figure I need to work through one ailment at a time. Thanks for the help.
