No matter what stage of life you are in, there are so many things we experience on a daily basis that make us wonder…is this normal? 

Am I normal? 

And then if you’re like so many of us, you spin in anxiety, worry and overwhelm thinking about how you’re probably the only one experiencing it, leading to feelings of shame, isolation, frustration and perhaps fear.

That’s exactly why I am beyond thrilled to have a conversation with my guest today, because she literally wrote the book about what is normal, what’s not and exactly what to do about all of it. 

My guest today is the amazing Dr. Jolene Brighten, who is a hormone expert, nutrition scientist, and thought leader in women’s medicine. 

I knew I had to have Dr. Brighten on the podcast, because my daughter, YES! my 19yr old daughter asked me if I had read Dr. Brighten’s latest book, Is this Normal?, because she was halfway through it and loving it. 

The topics in this book and that we discuss in this episode are for everyone, at everystage of life, because you’re either a woman who may be experiencing things wondering if they are normal or you know a woman you care about who is.

In this episode we are taking the plunge, and stripping away all the myths, misconceptions and misinformation about sex, sexuality, and hormones, so that you’ll be able to answer the question…Is this normal, for yourself!
