I’m so excited to jump back into the world of hormones with a returning guest – Dr. Jolene Brighten! Dr. Jolene Brighten is a functional naturopathic doctor, nutritional biochemist, and the author of the newly released book, Beyond the Pill. Within this episode, we discuss the science behind hormone imbalances and natural ways that we can fix such imbalances. Just a few factors that can throw your hormones out of balance include gut health, liver health, stress, sleep, and food. In addition, we also face environmental factors, such as toxins in cleaning and beauty products, that can also cause hormone imbalances. If you find that you’re struggling with an imbalance, you can look into the hormone detox kit offered by Dr. Jolene Brighten, which takes you through a full-body detox involving small changes in food, lifestyle, and supplements.

Key Takeaway: By understanding any hormone imbalances you may have, you can make small changes in your lifestyle that will ensure that you’re healthier later in life.



  • Discussing ways to naturally balance your hormones without the use of hormonal birth control
  • Gut health, liver health, exercise, sleep, stress, postpartum, and food all contribute to causing imbalances with our hormones.
  • Adrenal glands, thyroid, and sex hormones play a huge role in hormone production. You need to have strong foundational health within your adrenal glands and thyroid before focusing on sex hormones.
  • In addition to toxins in beauty products and cleaning chemicals, hormonal birth control can also cause your liver to work overtime.
  • By over exercising or overtraining and not consuming enough calories, it may be more difficult to lose weight because your body goes into starvation mode.
  • Jolene Brighten provides a hormone reset detox, which is a program that takes you through a full-body detox involving food, lifestyle, and supplements. This detox also highlights small everyday changes and your mindset.
