Today I have Dr. Jolene Brighten, a Naturopathic Physician and one of the few guests who have been a second-time guest on the Thyroid Strong podcast. She shares her new book, “Is This Normal?” and how to get your libido back, your hormones in balance, and where to start when you feel overwhelmed with your Hashimoto’s diagnosis. 

Her new book is informative, entertaining, and all the things you wish you knew when you were first diagnosed.

In This Episode:

• The things women are told are normal that aren’t when it comes to health and hormones

• Why many of the things women are told about our bodies are wrong

• What foods help balance your hormones

• What are the symptoms of thyroid and adrenal imbalance, especially in relation to hormone problems

• What to understand about libido and how to support it

How sexual desire differs in women and men
