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
