On Today’s podcast, we’re discussing the impact of hormonal birth control on your skin and overall health. Many women are put on birth control pills for managing symptoms, such as acne, irregular cycles and perimenopausal symptoms. But, did you know that this approach could be doing more harm than good?
My guest today is Dr. Jolene Brighten who is a Naturopathic Physician and nutritional biochemist with a focus in women’s endocrine health. She is recognized as a leading expert in Post-Birth Control Syndrome and the long-term side effects associated with hormonal contraceptives. Dr. Brighten is the author of Beyond the Pill, a 30 day plan to support women on birth control, help them transition off, and eliminate symptoms of post-birth control syndrome. She is a speaker, women’s health advocate and a medical advisor for one of the first data-driven apps to offer women personalized birth control recommendations.
On today’s episode, Dr. Brighten explains how hormonal birth control works, how it impacts your health in ways that you probably were not aware. And, she explains alternatives for both birth control and symptom management.
So, I hope you enjoy this interview…
