Hi, Katy.

Yes you can definitely take two drops of the Molybdenum a day.

Low blood pressure can be a die-off symptom, but so is an ‘elevated’ heart rate instead of a lowered one. But then again, a low pulse can be attributed to regular exercise, which if I remember correctly, you once were doing.

A low blood pressure can be caused by several things of course, and a lot of time it’s simply hereditary. But since you have Candida, you are almost certain to have a lowered immune system, and a lowered immune system is nearly always accompanied by chronic fatigue syndrome. To take it further, low blood pressure is a normal symptom of chronic fatigue syndrome. This could explain your tiredness as well as the low blood pressure.

According to some research that I remember reading; B12 has been used to raise low blood pressure, so it being a cause makes sense. In a way it also makes sense that you could be deficient in B12 because the foods that are abundant in this vitamin are eggs, fish, meat, poultry, milk, and milk products, all of which I believe you’re having rather limited amounts of?

The problem is, if you’re deficient in B12, you’re likely to be deficient in other B vitamins as well, so taking only a B12 supplement may not be the wisest thing to do. Do doctors test for particular vitamin deficiencies in the UK. If so, it would be great if you could have this done.

It would also be nice if you could eat poultry, fish and eggs on a daily basis. By the way, a serving of Greek yogurt contains about 10% of the MDR of B12. Of course the probiotic is going to create all of the B vitamins for your system as well.

Katy, the only connection I can find between Candida and the cold feeling in your stomach is if GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease) is present along with the Candida, which is quite common. It seems that sometimes the cold sensation can be felt by some people with GERD. The supplements you’re taking plus the diet are all working towards curing GERD along with the Candida. I can’t remember, do you use Grape Bitters after every meal? This is important for GERD problems.

You asked, “Where do you usually do your research? Books, internet?”

All of the above as they say, plus a few more. If I use the internet, I only use Google Scholar where I can pull up the journal articles by researchers and specialists or the actual research reports.
