About This Show
Are you suffering from weight gain, low energy or overall just not feeling well?
Sit back and relax because this podcast is dedicated to you!
I'm Dr. Westin Childs and I practice functional medicine in Gilbert, Arizona. My passion is for helping people lose weight and KEEP it off by balancing hormone levels, especially the thyroid.
More than that though, I'm interested in making you feel HUMAN again to REGAIN control of your life and your health.
I take a "whole body" approach to medicine that has allowed for some amazing results in my patients and that's what I want to share with you...
These podcasts will go over patient case studies, how I approach patient care, and how to properly diagnose and treat these imbalances.
I will specifically be discussing thyroid problems, leptin resistance, insulin resistance, weight loss resistance, estrogen dominance, adrenal fatigue and gut problems/imbalances.

WP Thyroid Weight Loss
7 days ago
This video will walk you through a thyroid case study in which I show you how WP thyroid lead to weight loss in a patient of mine with before and after pictures.
The combination of the right type of thyroid medication, plus managing hormones leads to significant weight loss in hypothyroid patients.
Many patients wrongly believe that adding in thyroid medication will lead to significant weight loss and that is rarely the cause.
In this example I walk you through:
- How to decide which thyroid medication is best for your body, including going over the differences between WP Thyroid vs naturethroid vs armour thyroid
- How to properly evaluate your blood tests to determine what is causing weight loss resistance in your body
- How to address hormone imbalances other than hypothyroidism
- What supplements to use to help with weight loss
- How important diet, exercise and lifestyle interventions are for helping hypothyroid patients lose weight (hint: not as important as you may think)
I use the lab results from this patient case study to show you how I look at hypothyroid patients including what lab values I use and what does of medication I use.
I hope you find this article helpful as you try to lose weight with hypothyroidism!
