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 to use Contrave for Weight Loss + Who should use it
Contrave is a newer weight loss medication that can be used to help certain people lose weight. Should you use it? Not necessarily, contrave is an "okay" weight loss medication but there are definitely better ones out there.
I use Contrave in my weight loss practice to help patients with the following conditions:
- Those with body set point malfunction.
- Those with insulin resistance.
- Those with thyroid problems.
- Patients with binge eating disorder or other eating disorders.
- Patients with autoimmune diseases.
- And lastly, patients with chronic pain.
If you fall into any of these categories then Contrave may be helpful for you.
You need to also understand exactly how Contrave helps with weight loss because each person has different issues that need to be addressed for lasting weight loss.
