So excited to share part two of my interview with Dr. Brighten! If you missed part one, be sure to give it a listen here. Dr. Brighten is a Functional Medicine Naturopathic Doctor, entrepreneur, best selling author, speaker and mother. I had recently read her book, “Healing Your Body Naturally after Childbirth” and knew I had to have her on the podcast. I’m so glad I did!
In this second episode, we talk about postpartum depression and the difference between that and baby blues. Also, placenta encapsulation, thyroid and the adrenals and how they’re connected, and nutrition. You don’t want to miss it! Dr. Jolene shares so many nuggets. You will literally feel like you’re in her office and she’s talking right to you. If you’ve had a baby, plan to have one or know someone who has, this podcast is for you!
Dr. Brighten practices in Oakland, CA as well as recently opening an office in Portland, OR. She has a specialized clinical focus in autoimmune disease and hormonal health. I love the quote Dr. Brighten has on her website:
“I help women balance their hormones, reverse their autoimmune disease and fall back in love with life!”
