Hi all! Thanks so much for your response.

I am already taking trace minerals from over three months now, but not iodine because it was out of stock here.

Also you may want to get your tyroid tested.
Hypothyroidism is common for those with Candida overgrowth/Leakygut/Gut Inflammation. Hair loss is a common symptom especially in women with Hypothyroidism.
I have got my thyroid tested over the years several times, but it was always fine with God’s grace, so I would rule out that possibility.

I’ve heard about people taking op to 2000mg a day of diflucan (Madness?!?!) loosing eyebrows too..
I have been taking Virgin Organic Coconut oil, Garlic cloves, and pills with allicin only as antifungals. I wonder if that can cause hairfall. Can it? In fact, I also apply coconut oil (traditionally) before a hair-wash to keep my hair healthy.

hmm…yeah…this could be one reason. Junniper Berry extract might not be available here, and I have got a year’s supply of Molybdenum imported from the US now…so any suggestion what can I do?

Sometime into the diet I stopped the selenium. (I figured I’m really sick, not leaving the house, have horrible bags under my eyes, who cares about the hair loss, I guess I got too sick to care and stopped) It took about 6 months on the diet for my hair loss to slow down on it’s own. Now I have mild hair loss and believe it’s only going to get better.
That really gives me hope. I am taking selenium. Maybe I can increase the dose. Any clue what does can help me?
I have had a previous experience of severe hair fall due to fungal infection of the scalp, but that was years ago. I was prescribed oral antifungals, antifungal shampoo and lotion. Maybe that is again the reason. I do not want to visit an allopath anymore.
