#26: New Look at Women's Health with Dr. Beth Westie
“The scariest part of the journey is before you actually start.”
Dr. Beth Westie is the founder and creator of the 12 Week Female Fat Solution. She has made it her mission to change the way women view their health. Alongside my wife and special co-host, Sara Gove, we have a wide-ranging conversation with this fascinating entrepreneur who is full of passion, charisma, and knowledge.
Dr. Beth talks about her mission to educate women about the nuisances of the female body and how that affects their health differently than men. She explains that most of the information about diet and nutrition in circulation today has been based on the male body, and that women have been left without a proper roadmap. Dr. Beth addresses the frustration a lot of women feel in trying to live a healthy lifestyle.
We also explore the challenges that Dr. Beth has faced in charting this new path. For many years, she ran a successful chiropractic medicine practice, but when she realized “the pull” toward this new area of women’s health was too powerful to ignore, she sold her practice. This decision tested old friendships she had in the industry, but it also dared her to live a more fulfilling life.
