I've been losing a lot of hair the last couple months. What are the potential causes of hair loss? I'm wondering if there's a particular nutrient that I'm low on (or have too much of??). I switched which supplements I'm taking about 3 months or so ago per dr.'s orders. I'll ask at my next appointment, but I thought I'd ask here meantime. It seems possible to me that there's a connection, given the timing. I'll admit that my health hasn't been really good lately, so maybe all it is. I don't want to assume that, though, and not look for other reasons.

I read one time, if you have any unusual problems, get off all supplements and see if it resolves itself. Then start back up one at a time.

Olive oil on the scalp is supposed to help.
