A Healthy Curiosity

Exploring strategies for holistic health, happiness, and personal evolution: what it takes to be well in a busy world. Blending the wisdom of Chinese Medicine, functional medicine, Ayurveda, neuroscience and psychology, you'll get practical tips you can use right away. You know that health and happiness aren’t things you can outsource. You’ve also got a full plate, and making the time to take care of yourself can be challenging. A Healthy Curiosity is here to support you. Host Brodie Welch, L.Ac., is an expert in Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, a holistic health coach, as well as a teacher and practitioner of qi gong, meditation, yoga, lifestyle and diet counseling who tries to walk her talk about health and mindfulness as a recovering Type-A, parent, and business owner. You'll find interviews with fellow experts in Chinese Medicine and natural health care about the conditions we treat and strategies we use clinically; simple self-care tips to help you feel calm, centered, and energized; and personal chats where we explore what gets in the way of our best intentions: perfectionism, big goals, habits and routines, chronic pain, overwork and overwhelm, boundaries, limiting beliefs — and what it takes to overcome such obstacles mindfully.

Beyond the Pill

with Dr. Jolene Brighten

Hormonal birth control pills can mean freedom from unwanted pregnancy, but this freedom often comes at the cost. These days, hormonal based birth control pills are commonly prescribed for symptoms from painful periods to acne, often before a woman gets a chance to understand her own cycles, without much discussion of possible side effects, alternative treatments, and other non-hormonal methods for preventing unwanted pregnancies. Dr. Jolene Brighten spent years working with woman identifying Post-Birth Control Syndrome, and then learning how to help women heal from the use of hormonal birth control. On today's episode we discuss:

  • controlling vs. listening to our natural cycles
  • the side effects every woman considering or taking The Pill should know 
  • how our symptoms are signals from the body and why masking them might not be a great idea

Dr. Jolene Brighten is Functional Naturopathic Medical Doctor 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 also the author of, "Beyond the Pill: A 30-Day Program to Balance Your Hormones, Reclaim Your Body, and Reverse the Dangerous Side Effects of the Birth Control Pill." She is a speaker and a women's health advocate.
