Dr. Westin Childs Podcast: Thyroid | Weight loss | Hormones
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.

How Does the Thyroid gland Work?
Your thyroid gland is highly regulated at multiple steps in the body.
In order for the thyroid gland to function optimally there are no less than 6 important steps that must work correctly.
These steps include:
1. TRH secretion
2. TSH secretion
3. Thyroid gland secretion of thyroid hormones
4. Thyroid hormone conversion
5. Thyroid hormone cellular activation
6. Feedback loop
Problems can occur at all 6 stages and may not be picked up with standard lab tests.
