This isn’t going to help much, Mstewart, but no one on the forum can tell you the source of the itching for absolute certain. If I had to guess, it would be die-off, but as I said, that’s only a guess. If you had the product Candida made by Native Remedies, you could test it since Candidate is able to stop die-off symptoms right after taking it. If it caused the itching to go away, then there’s a better chance that’s coming from die-off as opposed to Candida. By the way, Molybdenum doesn’t normally work this quickly, but on the other hand, Molybdenum will build up more and therefore offer a steady protection for the liver and kidneys.
