Dr. Jolene Brighten

Founder & CEO
Dr. Jolene Brighten is a Functional Medicine Naturopathic Doctor and the founder of Rubus Health—a root cause women’s medicine clinic where she specializes in the treatment of hormone disorders, including adrenal and thyroid conditions. She is the leading expert in Post-Birth Control Syndrome and the side effects and long term consequences associated with the use of the birth control pill.

Dr. Amy Eady

DNP, Naturopathic Assistant
Dr. Amy Eady is a Functional Medicine Lifestyle Educator who helps women struggling with hormone imbalances, including thyroid and adrenal dysfunction, PMS, PCOS, and other hormone related symptoms. Amy has experienced the first hand debilitating effects of hypothyroidism after her doctors surgically removed her thyroid, refused her replacement hormones, and dismissed her symptoms that resulted in her daily struggle with extreme fatigue and weight gain. When her doctors finally prescribed her medication she found that all of her symptoms didn’t just resolve. With doctors offering her little support, she turned to the power of diet and lifestyle intervention, which brought her greater energy, lasting weight loss, and improved fertility. She found her thyroid concerns being dismissed by her healthcare team once again as her hypothyroid symptoms came back with a vengeance during her pregnancy. It was then that she sought out the unique expertise of Dr. Brighten to aid in her thyroid condition and has been learning from her since. She continues to study under Dr. Brighten and is involved with all of her patient care.

She now helps women enjoy easier periods, better moods, and abundant energy.
