Hypothyroidism is more common than one might expect.

Currently, hypothyroidism is the most common pathological condition related to hormone deficiency. It is estimated that 3-5% of the entire population suffers from some form of thyroxine and thyroid deficiency. Getting to the root of your thyroxine deficiency is critical as many conditions can arise if hypothyroidism is not definitively diagnosed. Today, medical treatments for hypothyroidism are geared towards replacing the deficient thyroxine & thyroid hormones.

Although chances are you will eventually require thyroxine & thyroid replacement hormone medications, this does not mean that you should neglect the fact that your thyroid gland has nutritional needs of its own.

Thyax is a natural thyroid remedy that has been developed to help boost your thyroid hormone levels.

Thyax supplies the body with the nutrients needed by the pituitary gland to activate the production of sufficient amounts of circulating thyroid hormone, thereby allowing for normal functioning of the thyroid to take place including boosting thyroxine.


WHAT Can Help?

The following publications have reported how supplements (like the ones included in our natural thyroid remedy, Thyax) can help boost an underactive thyroid:
Will help reduce symptoms of hypothyroidism: A daily multivitamin, containing the antioxidant vitamins A, C, E, the B-complex vitamins, and trace minerals such as magnesium, calcium, zinc, and selenium. [Full Article]
Mary Shomon: Are there any particular supplements you think most people with hypothyroidism should probably be taking? Drs. Shames: I try not to generalize, as each patient is unique. That being said, it is a good bet that low thyroid people have a tendency for low red blood cells.

This can be helped with B-12, and folic acid, along with an easily digested iron source if they test low for iron as well...This usually covers the bases listed above, as well as the important minerals of zinc, magnesium, copper, and selenium.

I recommend supplementing with EPA, Omega-3, and GLA, Omega-6. Finally, a gram or two of free-form amino acids (L-Tyrosine is an amino acid included in Thyax) each day helps tremendously. [Full Article]

Dr. Mercola: While not a huge fan of supplements, preferring to encourage most people to optimize their diet, he feels the best supplement that one could possibly take to boost thyroxine and thyroid health would be some form of organic iodine. [Full Article]
In one study of children who exhibited symptoms of hypothyroidism, a deficiency of selenium was recognized. After Selenium supplementation, hormone levels returned to normal and symptoms disappeared. Another study found that a low T3/T4 ratio in healthy elderly subjects could be corrected by supplementation with selenium. [Full Article]


WHO Experiences Hypothyroidism?

Causes of Hypothyroidism:

The cause of hypothyroidism is the result of several factors, including underlying conditions. These include;

  • Hashimoto's Thyroiditis: This is the most common cause of hypothyroidism and is categorized as an inherited condition.

    Hashimoto's results from an underlying autoimmune disease, in which the body's immune system attacks thyroid tissues. This condition usually presents with an enlarged thyroid gland, or goiter, and inhibits the production of thyroid hormones.

  • Lymphocytic Thyroiditis: Thyroiditis is an inflammation of the thyroid gland. It is thought to be caused by a type of white blood cell known as a lymphocyte.
  • Severe Iodine Deficiency Hypothyroidism: This results from a dietary deficiency of iodine. Severe hypothyroidism resulting from iodine deficiencies are primarily seen in underdeveloped countries.

    Hypothyroidism caused by iodine deficiency is so prevalent, in fact, that an estimated 5-15% of the entire population in lesser developed countries (e.g. Chile and India) suffer from this condition.

    This condition is extremely rare in the U.S., due to the inclusion of iodine in table salt and bread products.

  • Pituitary or Hypothalamic disease: Pituitary disease is also referred to as "secondary hypothyroidism. "Hypothalamic disease is defined as "tertiary hypothyroidism."

    These two conditions result from the inability of either the pituitary gland or hypothalamus to signal the thyroid for hormone production. Even if the thyroid gland itself is normal, a decreased level of circulating T3 or T4 may still occur as a result of these underlying diseases.

  • Medications: Common medications used to treat hyperthyroidism (an over-active thyroid) can actually cause hypothyroidism.

    Psychiatric medications, like lithium, may also diminish thyroid hormone production. The administration of other drugs that contain large amounts of iodine can also lead to extremely low levels of thyroid hormone within the blood.

  • Destruction of the Thyroid: Thyroid destruction typically results from radioactive iodine treatments, radiation therapy, or surgical procedure.

    For instance, Grave's disease patients (caused by hyperthyroidism) may receive radioactive iodine therapy, resulting in the destruction or impairment of some, or even all of the existing thyroid tissue. Removal of the thyroid gland during surgery is also accompanied by hypothyroidism.

Signs and Symptoms

The signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism often take years to surface and are solely dependent upon the severity of hormone deficiency.

Moreover, detecting hypothyroidism in infants, children, and teens can prove even more challenging. Classic symptoms include lethargy and extreme fatigue.

However, a greater decline in metabolism usually presents more obvious signs and symptoms of the disease, and may include;

  • Pale, dry skin
  • Hoarse voice
  • Elevated blood cholesterol levels
  • Muscle aches and joint stiffness
  • Muscle weakness
  • Heavy menses in females
  • Increased sensitivity to climate change; particularly the cold
  • Constipation
  • Depression

Symptoms of hypothyroidism usually become worse if not accurately diagnosed.

Depression, anxiety, insomnia, and forgetfulness are classic symptoms that can result if not treated correctly. Additionally, advanced hypothyroidism, or myxedema, can be life-threatening.

Although this condition remains extremely rare, persons with intense drowsiness, intolerance to cold, profound lethargy, and periods of unconsciousness warrant immediate medical intervention.

Are You at Risk?

Anyone can develop hypothyroidism. However, women older than 40 years of age have the greatest chance of onset.

Generally, for both sexes, risk factors do increase as our metabolic rates continually decline with age.

Other potential risk factors and at-risk populations include; having a close relative with an autoimmune disease, diabetics, pregnant women, those who are taking anti-thyroid medications or have received radioactive and radiation treatments, as well as persons who have had thyroid surgery (thyroidectomy).



WHO gets it?



Conventional Treatments:

The most common treatments for hypothyroidism are prescription medications. Existing as synthetic thyroid hormone, these popular medicines are intended to replace the T4 hormone, which the body naturally produces.
However, many patients have failed to respond to such treatments. Many physicians point to the lack of T3 in such medicines as the cause for little or no symptom relief in a large number of persons with hypothyroidism. Because of this, a growing number of individuals within the medical community have supported the use of natural or alternative therapies for hypothyroidism support.


Naturally Regulate Your Thyroid - Thyax:

As mentioned, the thyroid does require its own nutritional support for optimal health. Thyax accomplishes this by supplementing nutrients into the body that can support thyroid functioning on a permanent basis.


B vitamins are essential for energy production, mood, nervous system function and wound healing.

One of the main complaints of hypothyroidism is fatigue, which is mostly caused by low levels of thyroid hormone but may also be the result of low B vitamin status.

Amino Acids

Tyrosine is required for the synthesis of thyroid hormones, and deficiency of phenylalanine and L-tyrosine has been associated with hypothyroidism (1).

As a precursor to the amino acid tyrosine, phenylalanine plays an important role in thyroid function. Deficiency of phenylalanine and L-tyrosine has been associated with hypothyroidism and thyroxine deficiency.


Iodine is a trace element that is required for thyroid hormone synthesis.

Deficiency of iodine causes goiter, thyrotoxicosis and developmental disorders in children (8,9).

Even mild iodine deficiency can result in hypothyroidism and thyroid disorders, especially in at-risk populations (10).

By stimulating the thyroid with natural supplements, Thyax may help restore normal thyroid levels.

Based on returns, testimonials, complaints, and feedback

*"My wife has had a borderline thyroid problem for years. Recently it started to get worse. We found out about your product and she has had great success.

I have been on Synthroid for over 5 years. I did not perceive any real problems. When my wife had success with your product, I decided to switch. I decided that I would stop Synthroid one day and start your product the next. The only side effect that I noticed was on the first evening. I had a "buzz" of "high". This did not continue after the first night.

To date, neither of us has had any additional side effects. I did not realize the side effects that I was having from Synthroid: excessive sweating, falling asleep watching TV, lack of ambition. My wife says I am a different person. My wife's thinning hair has begun to thicken up.

One effect that we both noticed is that our allergies seemed to have disappeared. My wife was taking 3-5 antihistamines per week and I was taking 2 or 3. Since the first week, neither of us has taken an antihistamine."

Thank you.

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 taking any nutritional modifications while taking prescription medications.

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.

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.
