1-on-1 Coaching - Dr. Westin Childs | Your #1 Resource for Weight Loss & Thyroid Management

1-on-1 Health & Nutrition Coaching with Andrea

Get individualized 1-on-1 help with a functional medicine health & nutrition coach trained by Dr. Childs.

You know that changing your diet, reducing your stress, detoxing your liver, exercising the right amount (not too much to damage your adrenals but enough to influence your hormones), taking supplements, and using the right hormones are all important... 

But do you know where to start or which area you should focus on first?

Do you know how to eat to lose weight while maintaining muscle mass while still reducing insulin and leptin levels? 

Do you know which foods can make autoimmune diseases worse (but which may be necessary for short periods of time)? 

Do you know how to balance your diet to account for your hormones (to lower insulin & leptin levels)?

Do you know how to properly diagnose and treat GI related issues which may be reducing your thyroid function? ​

Do you know how much is too much exercise (or how to determine if reducing your exercise may lead to weight loss)?

The point is - navigating these questions can be almost impossible on your own. 

That's why having a health coach who actually UNDERSTANDS these conditions and who has treated patients exactly like you before is invaluable. 

Dr. Childs has worked with an personally trained health coaches to tackle the problems you see outlined on this blog. 

Here's how Andrea can help YOU: 

  • Help you with weight Weight loss - Weight loss will be impossible unless you know which hormones to evaluate and treat. The secret to long lasting and sustained weight loss is putting together all of the missing pieces. Few providers (doctors included) understand how this process fits together. 
  • Help put you on the right direction with your diet - How many carbs should you eat? How much protein? How much fat is too much? Should you eat low carb if you have adrenal problems? Will nightshades increase your antibody levels? Will the ketogenic diet help with weight loss? The right dietary advice is crucial for success and unless you have an understanding of all of these components, fixing your diet can be very difficult. 
  • Help put you on the right track to healing your thyroid - This complicated topic includes which medications may be best for your body, how to determine if you are converting T4 to T3 appropriately, which supplements to take to boost conversion/production and how it fits in to the bigger picture. 
  • Help balance your hormones for weight loss and more energy - While your thyroid is important you can't forget about estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, pregnenolone, testosterone, cortisol, insulin and leptin. All of these hormones need to be balanced and in sync to get results. 
  • Help guide you in ordering and understand your lab results and what they mean for your body -  Your lab tests are critical to understanding the "big picture". Dr. Childs goes over all lab studies with his health coaches to help optimize treatment plans and make sure everyone is on the right track. 
  • Help guide you in using the RIGHT supplements and nutrients - Supplements will be a required and necessary step to a complete healing program. We target supplements toward the underlying cause of your issues. 
  • Heal and manage your GI function - Despite the importance of the GI function in health many providers miss the important connection between your GI tract and your hormones. Fixing bacterial overgrowth syndromes and dysbiosis is necessary for complete healing. 
  • Help heal your Metabolism - So many patients have a damaged metabolism from years of dieting and years of untreated hormone imbalances. If you don't fix your metabolism you will never lose weight and keep it off. We will use Dr. Childs protocols to help heal your metabolism and increase your fat burn. 
  • Help reduce and manage your stress levels - Reducing and managing your stress is essential to improving your energy levels long term. 
  • Help you understand what medications may be beneficial for your body based on your results - Certain medications can actually be helpful if used for short periods of time. We will help determine if these medications will help boost your results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this program refundable?

No, because we spend a lot of time formulating individual treatment plans (and because it can take months for some people to get results) we do not offer a refund option for this program. 

We suggest that only very serious patients purchase and undergo this program. 

What happens after you purchase?

​You will receive a detailed welcome email which includes all of the information to get started. From there you will be able to schedule your first appointment and given instructions on what information we need to get you started. 

In addition you will be given a comprehensive functional lab analysis which includes testing for all hormones in your body (including leptin, full thyroid panel, estrogen/progesterone/testosterone, sex hormone binding globulin, etc.) to get prior to your first visit.

Together, Andrea will discuss your results with Dr. Childs prior to your first visit which will be approximately 2 weeks after you get your labs drawn.

Andrea will then create a treatment plan for you which will be reviewed by Dr. Childs to ensure you are on the right track.

Andrea and Dr. Childs will communicate with each other about your case as necessary after each visit, but all visits will be with Andrea (your functional nutrition health coach). 

Who will I be consulting with?

All of your visits will be with Andrea (your functional health coach) who has been trained by Dr. Childs. Andrea will discuss your case with Dr. Childs and together Andrea and Dr. Childs will create a treatment plan that is individualized for YOU. 

Will this program work for me?

We have yet to have a patient that didn't improve in our program, but like anything in life we cannot guarantee results.

We can assure you that we use the most advanced treatment guidelines available and we put you front and center in the treatment plans.

Our treatment plans require effort and energy on your part and you will be an active member during the healing process.

Please do not sign up if you aren't ready to make the changes necessary in your life to finally feel better. ​

Do I still need a Doctor if I use this program?

Yes, you should maintain care with your PCP and/or current provider. This program is designed to work with or without physician assistance, however. 

Will Dr. Childs treat me if I use this program?

All of your visits will be with Andrea, but the case will be reviewed and discussed with Dr. Childs before your first visit and after each phone visit.

Andrea (the health coach) talks and discusses cases with Dr. Childs almost daily, but this program does not offer 1-on-1 help with Dr. Childs.

*Please note that this program does not include prescription medications. 

​How do I get labs and are they included in the price?

You will be given a comprehensive lab form that includes diagnosis codes to take to whichever lab you prefer. Most of the time these labs are covered by insurance but we can't guarantee that they will be. It is up to you to determine if your insurance will cover the labs. ​

You will receive this lab form prior to your first visit so that when you have your first visit Andrea and Dr. Childs will have your labs to discuss with you.

We can recheck labs throughout your program as necessary as well. ​

We can also use an existing set of comprehensive labs if they are within the last 3-6 months. 

Are supplements included in the program?
