Interested in Working With Me As a Patient? 

"I don't heal my patients, I teach them to heal themselves." 

That's my philosophy when it comes to women's health and the guiding principle behind Rubus Health, my root cause women's medicine clinic. I've trained my Rubus Women's Health Team in my unique protocols and proven methods that help women balance their hormones, optimize their fertility, reverse their symptoms, and enjoy the benefits better health can bring. 

Navigating your own health is like reading a book that is too close to your face. You know all the answers are right there, but it’s just way too close to make out the words.

That’s Where We Come In! 

My team and I stand back at the right distance to clearly read those words back to you. We take your entire story, along with the data and paint a clear picture of how you got to where you are, what to do to fix it, and what’s coming down the pipeline if we don’t act now.

But make no mistake, while we are guiding you and giving you direction, it is YOU who takes the step. It is you who does the work.

So in our mind—we don’t heal people. They heal themselves.

And if we’ve done our job right, then you'll be feeling better and have a much better idea of what your body's unique needs are and how to meet them.

If you’re suffering from symptoms of hormone imbalance, post-birth control syndrome, or have seen everyone and tried everything, my team and I can offer you hope on your healing journey.

My practitioners and I successfully use naturopathic and functional medicine to treat women suffering from a range of issues like hypothyroidism, autoimmune disease, PCOS, hair loss, fatigue, infertility, digestive disorders and depression... to name a few.

We use the most innovative and advanced lab testing, along with a personalized treatment plan anchored in diet, lifestyle and natural therapies to get you quick relief and create long lasting health.

Functional Medicine Naturopathic Physician | Dr. Jolene Brighten |

In my clinic, we do things differently than your average doctor or health care provider.

I have a unique philosophy and approach to patient care and medicine, which is why my patients get better...and stay better!

I won't just help you feel better—I teach you how to be your own medical detective and provide you with the tools so you can heal yourself!

I don't just believe you have the power to heal your body...I know it! 

Curious if my team are right for you?

I invite you to read my about our core values. If theses values resonate with you too then you'll know we're right for you.

I've trained my entire team in my philosophies, protocols, and approach to women's health. Here's a bit about how we help women.

We want to hear your story.

We believe your story holds vital information that no lab value could ever reveal. Your experience is important to your case.

We want you to own the outcomes.

We recognize that you are the one taking steps every day towards your health. Our job is to teach you how to care for your body, feel better every day, and prevent disease.

We don’t judge the journey.

We all come to health and the feeling of being whole by our own means...and no two paths will look the same. We don’t believe in getting hung up on what we “didn’t do right” or “should have done better.” We’re more about the learning and the experiences that help shape who you become.

We believe in short-term and long-term solutions.

We believe in getting you feeling better ASAP! Long term resolutions require effort and that requires energy. One of our first goals is to help you start feeling better fast.

We’re all in!

We believe the only way true healing can take place is for all of us to be committed to the success of this relationship. We’ll do the investigating with your help and you’ll make the changes necessary to heal with our help.  You don't have to be perfect, but you do have to be willing to take ownership of your health and go all in on creating the life you want to live.

At the end of each visit, you will walk away with a greater understanding of your health, including which systems need to be addressed, and an actionable plan to help you attain your defined goals.

And we think differently than other health providers…

In order for you to unearth the root cause of your ailments and achieve lasting health, I’ve created a program that is both empowering and supportive.

Read what people have to say about our care.

Let me share with you what our Hormone Strategy Calls look like.

Your visit begins before you ever speak to your coach.

Prior to your appointment you'll complete a comprehensive health journey form, which your coach will spend time reviewing. We spend an average of 30 minutes preparing to meet with you in order to help us explore the details of your case when we meet.

In our visit, we'll get to know you, your goals, and what your journey has looked like so far.

Following this consult you'll receive a personalized plan targeted at helping you reach your goals, including nutrition, lifestyle, and supplement recommendations. We believe in helping your get back on track fast, which is why we do not delay in helping you kick start your hormones.

Your personalized educational plan may include:

  • Easy to implement dietary recommendations to begin immediately
  • Holistic lifestyle recommendations
  • Herbal and dietary supplement recommendations
  • Mind-Body and stress reduction techniques to meet your individual needs
  • Next phase recommendations to keep you moving forward! 

Here's what some of our ladies say about working with us:

“I finally have a clear path to health. I struggled for years with doctors who couldn’t tell me what was wrong. I am just so excited to know what is going on and how to heal. This is the first time I’ve felt really happy and excited about my health!” ~G.L.

"After years of experiencing PMS, anxiety and terrible stomach aches, I finally have relief after only a couple of visits with Dr. Brighten. I am no longer feeling anxious and I can finally spend my weekends out with my friends, instead of home with a stomach ache." ~A.L.

"Working with Dr. Brighten has helped me get my energy back and I’ve been able to lower my thyroid medication. I had been on thyroid hormones for many years and never really felt much better. She gave me a new prescription and helped me resolve a lot of the issues that were causing my hypothyroidism." ~J.K.

"Dr. Brighten helped me relieve the terrible gas and bloating I had following the birth of my second child. She suspected SIBO and it turns out she was right! After years of working with nutritionists and medical doctors I finally had an answer and within one week of starting treatment all of the bloating was resolved. I can now play with my children and no longer have to worry if the food I eat will make me sick. Dr. Brighten gave me back my life and I am so grateful!" ~K.R.
