Dr. Beth Westie is a woman on a mission to change the way women view their health. She is the Founder and creator of the 12-Week Female Fat Solution Challenge and the author of the bestselling book The Female Fat Solution. Dr. Westie travels the country educating and empowering women to take their health into their own hands, using nutrition and information about their natural cycles to achieve lasting weight loss – but most of all, to start thriving in their bodies again.
Many women don't realize that their bodies go through many phases. What your body needs at 25 is different than 35, or 45, or 55. But when you can actually get to the root of what high-functioning looks like, at each phase, you really do get to perform at a higher level in all that you do.
Many of us only come to this realization when we stop functioning, unfortunately. For Dr. Westie, that manifested as horrific ovarian cysts. The pain was crippling at times, and it went on for 18 months.
“Nothing to me was more frustrating than that point in my life because, every month, I would have a cyst. Every month, I would have a cyst that would burst, and I couldn't figure out what was going on. I couldn't figure out what was happening. And I mean, I'm a health care practitioner! This is what I do... I was eating super clean, doing all these detox days, and I was taking a basket full of supplements, like 35 different supplements every day, to try and keep from getting a cyst all the time, but nothing was working.”
What Dr. Westie learned was that she had a buildup of hormones in her body. In an effort to regulate her hormones, she started learning even more about Eastern medicine. She shifted how she ate to better align with her hormones and help her liver flush some of that excess hormone out, which led her to develop the nutrition program that she teaches today.
We are all consistently learning, we're constantly evolving, and so I think it’s really cool that there are people like Dr. Westie out there helping people navigate these transitions into that next body phase, especially women, so that they can find alignment and thrive in their bodies again.
We all deserve to thrive – and thanks to the hard work of badasses like Dr. Westie, we all can.
