Today’s guest I had on the show previously, although we only had a brief conversation since it was recorded live at the Health Optimization summit in London. I knew I had to have her back on the show to go much deeper into her expertise and the vast knowledge she shares in regards to women’s health and our biology.

My guest, Dr. Jolene Brighten is a board certified naturopathic endocrinologist, clinical sexologist, and prominent leader in women’s medicine. A fierce patient advocate and completely dedicated to uncovering the root cause of hormonal imbalances, Dr. Brighten empowers women worldwide to take control of their health and their hormones. She is an international speaker, clinical educator, medical advisor within the tech community, and considered a leading authority on women’s health. Dr. Brighten is also part of the MindBodyGreen Collective and a faculty member for the American Academy of Anti Aging Medicine. Her work has been featured in the New York Post, Forbes, Cosmopolitan, Huffington Post, The Guardian, and ABC News.

Her mission is to give you all of the resources you need so you can take control of your hormones and health. Her most recent book, Beyond the Pill, walks you through the steps needed to figure out your particular hormonal imbalance and offers guidance on her signature protocols to get you on your way to a healthy cycle, quickly.
