Podcast #129 Dr. Jolene Brighten on Postpartum Health and RecoveryToday's Guest

Enter Dr. Brighten:

Hi. I’m Dr. Jolene Brighten, a licensed Naturopathic Doctor, entrepreneur, writer, wife, and mother.

Like so many, I’ve experienced the feelings of fatigue and stress that come with a busy, rewarding life. In fact, most of us aren’t functioning and performing at our best. The good news is there’s a reason you’re feeling fatigued, frazzled, and weak. There is a root cause to fertility issues, brain fog, chronic pain, and digestive disorders.

Together, we’ll take a look at your whole health story, from your diet and stress triggers to your lab values, all of which help me to create an individualized plan that fits your specific needs and unique lifestyle. We’ll work together to navigate the science behind the way you feel and find a balance between conventional and alternative medicine.

Before earning my Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine at the National College of Natural Medicine, I received a BS in Nutrition Science and completed graduate coursework in Molecular Nutrition at Cal Poly, SLO. I am a Holistic Pelvic Care™ specialist and have trained extensively in Biotherapeutic Drainage, Integrative Women’s Health, and chronic disease management.
