    EP222: Beyond the Pill with Dr. Jolene Brighten

    EP222: Beyond the Pill with Dr. Jolene Brighten

    Most people understand that hormonal birth control can increase the risk of blood clots and breast cancer, but what most people aren’t told is that its use has also been linked to…
    An increased risk of suicide...
    A 330% increased risk of Crohn's Disease…
    And maybe even an increased risk of Alzheimer’s.
    Scary, right? The last time I took it, I felt SO anxious, I had to stop after only a few days. When I called my doctor to tell her what happened she said...
    “That would definitely NOT have anything to do with birth control - call a psychiatrist and get some help.”
    Turns out - she was wrong. Birth control DOES cause unwanted side effects for many women.
    In fact, recent research and the clinical experience of this week’s BRILLIANT podcast guest, Dr. Jolene Brighten (author of the best-selling book, Beyond the Pill), has shown that birth control comes with a litany of side effects we’re just beginning to understand.
    So if you’re taking birth control, if you’re thinking of taking it, or if you’re wondering what you can do instead to support healthy hormonal balance, do yourself a favor and tune into this week’s awesome podcast. Here’s what we cover...
    When fasting is NOT a good idea for women The digestive benefits of fasting The best time in your cycle to fast Great foods to break a fast A simple sign you have blood sugar issues The link between Alzheimer’s are birth control The hormone that makes you tired and hungry (and why that’s ok!) What Post Birth Control Syndrome is and why you need to know about it Where birth control exerts its main effects (This will surprise you!) The 3 prescription medications that often follow the use of birth control The link between suicide attemps and birth control The autoimmune disease that birth control increases the risk of by 300% Why birth control can increase suicidal attempts in teens Why synthetic progestin and progesterone are NOT the same thing How hormones affect our mood The link between “bad” cholesterol and birth control Why those with the MTHFR mutation should be weary of birth control The 3 tests you will definitely want to have before taking birth control The type of birth control that everyone should avoid How to talk to your doctor about your symptoms so they understand you The best 3 steps you can take to heal your hormones And. So. Much. More. Don’t forget to SHARE this podcast and tag someone in the comments who needs to understand this very important topic.
    Thanks for watching, friends!
