Thyax Questions?

Pin it
Find answers to common questions about Thyax.

 


I haven't been officially diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. Can I still take Thyax?

Yes. Thyax may be taken without a definitive diagnosis. Although we recommend you get the tests needed to diagnose hypothyroidism, Thyax can be used to support the current health of your thyroid, while ensuring that the specific nutrient deficiencies related to this condition are eliminated. [top]


I hate going to the Doctor! What are some signs I can look for on my own to assess my personal risk?

Hypothyroidism symptom list: as detailed by the Merck Manual, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, and the Thyroid Foundation of America. You can use this checklist as a personal reference. If you find that you have checked off a majority of this list, you may want to print this page and take it to your health care provider as part of your comprehensive thyroid evaluation.

If I'm currently taking synthetic medications for my thyroid problem, will Thyax still help?

Yes. Because Thyax is not a drug, the risk of interaction is extremely minimal. Thyax works to support the health of your thyroid gland by adding those nutrients needed by the thyroid for optimal functioning. In fact, most of our customers use Thyax as an adjunct to their existing treatment protocols. However, Progressive Health always recommends speaking with your health care provider before making any nutritional modifications while taking prescription medications. [top]


Men vs. Women; who is diagnosed with thyroid deficiency more?

Statistics vary, but out of every 10 people diagnosed with hypothyroidism 7 or 8 of them will, most likely, be female. Researchers attribute this to the fact that women have more autoimmune disorders than men, and because of the continual hormonal and inflammatory fluctuations taking place with menstruation. [top]


I've heard that you can lose your hair if hypothyroidism is not treated. Is this true?

Yes, hair loss can occur and is a dreaded consequence of this condition. A deficiency of thyroid hormone affects all metabolic processes within the body, including the hair system. Thyroid sufferers lose hair as a result of the decreased metabolism in the scalp follicles and impairment in the intestinal absorption of nutrients needed for hair health. Both factors adversely impact our hair's natural growth and release cycles, causing hair to become brittle, develop severe split-ends, breakage, and fall out. [top]


If I decide to order Thyax, are Progressive Health's products sent discreetly?

Yes; Progressive Health respects your privacy. All orders will be shipped in a plain, unmarked envelope with a return address from Progressive Health Nutraceuticals Inc. (For more information about our shipping and billing policies, see Shipping and Billing below) [top]


What results should I expect?

Every person's body chemistry is different and results vary. Some notice dramatic results within the first few days, others notice gradual differences over a period of time. The average time span for starting to achieve results reported by our customers is between 30-60 days of taking our products.

Due to the fact that our products are all-natural, there is no way to accurately determine the outcome of taking our products for every customer. Our products are made from herbs, vitamins, and minerals, and you will achieve the greatest results when combined with a healthy diet and light to moderate exercise. [top]


Are there any side effects when taking Thyax?

As with all nutritional supplements, there is potential for reaction. Progressive Health ensures that all potential conflicts and side effects are listed on the product information pages. However, we strongly recommend consulting with your physician if you suffer from any pre-existing conditions (other than an underactive thyroid), known allergies, or if you are currently taking any medications. Based on customer feedback, order history, and regular product overview, there has yet to be a report of any serious side effects resulting from the implementation of Progressive Health products into existing treatment programs.

Do I need to use this supplement forever?

As with any supplementation program, it is wise to keep using the products on a daily basis to maintain results. [top]


What type of facility are your products made in?

Our products are manufactured in a GMP (good manufacturing practices) compliant facility. Our facility is also certified to produce pharmaceutical grade products.

We have naturopathic physicians that work in conjunction with our product formulators to come up with the formulas for our product.

Every batch is tested for safety and assigned a batch number which is printed on the bottle. We keep product samples from each batch for 10 years for testing and questions. If you ever experience an unusual reaction, stop taking the product and send us the batch number so we can test the sample for safety. [top]


Do your customer service representatives have medical training?

Unfortunately, we do not have any medical training to diagnose a condition or symptoms you may have.  We can only suggest our all-natural products, each of which was designed for certain conditions.  For specific information about a condition, you may want to contact your medical professional or visit one of these websites:

Do you offer free samples?

We do not have any free samples at this time, but we do have a risk free 6-month money back guarantee if you would like to place an order. [top]


Can I stop taking my prescribed medication and start taking your supplement?

Your doctor is best suited to answer this question. [top]


Do you do clinical studies?

Although there have been no clinical studies on Progressive Health products as a whole, there are literally thousands of clinical studies that have been completed on the individual ingredients. We use the information for these individual studies on the ingredients to formulate our products. [top]


How do you come up with your formulas and where are your offices?

All of our products are formulated according to independent clinical studies that test the individual ingredients. We then cross-reference those studies with even more references. Once a formula has been born, it is then carefully evaluated to make sure the ingredients are in the right balance for your body.

Our company utilizes corporate offices in Ohio, Idaho, and California. All products are manufactured in a GMP (good manufacturing practices) compliant, FDA approved pharmaceutical-facility.

The people who work for our company are friendly and knowledgeable. All of our employees in the manufacturing facility are trained under strict guidelines to adhere to safety regulations. [top]


I'm afraid my doctor won't approve of your supplement, what should I do?

Let's face it, sometimes doctors just can't keep up with all of the research coming out on every product, drug, and ingredient. If your doctor is too busy to do research on questions he may have about our products, please have the questions forwarded to us. We have extensive resources we can access to look up drug interactions, disease conditions, and supplements. [top]


I have trouble taking pills.  What is the size of the capsule and can I mix it with food?

Some do consider the capsules large. However, the capsules can be easily broken apart and mixed with juice, pudding, yogurt, peanut butter, etc. [top]


Can I use this supplement for my pet?

Our products have not been tested for or on animals. Please consult your veterinarian before you give this product to your pet. [top]


Can I use this supplement while on birth control?

Some yes and some no. Please email us if you are on birth control and we can look up the ingredients in our products to check for interactions. [top]


Is there Bovine in the supplement?

If you have concerns about Bovine, Mad Cow, or if the gelatin used in our capsules, read this article from Colombia University:

It thoroughly discusses everything you ever need to know about gelatin. An interesting fact from this article points out that gelatin used in capsules like ours is the same gelatin used in ice cream, cream cheese, sour cream, packaged gravies, sauces, chewing gums, and marshmallows. [top]


Do your supplements expire?

Every bottle has an expiration date on the back of the bottle near the supplement facts. [top]


What are the ingredients in this supplement?

Are the supplements FDA approved?

In 1994 the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act permitted the sale of all safe supplements in the USA. Therefore no FDA approval is needed. If the FDA feels like an ingredient is too dangerous to be sold in supplements, they will place a ban on that particular ingredient. To learn more about this act, please visit the FDA's website here:

Can I use this product while I am pregnant?

Due to the interactions with various medications and the health of your new child, we recommend avoiding this supplement while pregnant and nursing. However, we DO recommend taking 400 mcg of folic acid during pregnancy to prevent neural tube defects. [top]


Can I give this supplement to my children?

We do not recommend supplements for children under 6. Talk to your healthcare professional about the appropriate use of vitamins and minerals in children before you start them on a supplement program. [top]


Can I take this product while taking another supplement?

When taking multiple supplements, be careful that you are not getting too much of the same ingredient. Compare the ingredients before you start two or more supplement programs, here is a helpful site that lists tolerable dosages for virtually every supplement and herb: http://www.supplementnews.org/. Always consult your healthcare provider or pharmacist before starting a supplement program. [top]


Can I use Thyax if I no longer have my thyroid?

Thyax is a supplement that causes your body to naturally increase production of thyroxine and stimulate your thyroid. Our product is only for those who have a sluggish thyroid. If you no longer have a thyroid, our product will have no effect. [top]
