Lara Briden - The Period Revolutionary

If you need help with hormones or periods, you’re in the right place. This site explores women’s health topics such as immune treatment for endometriosis and the 4 types of PCOS. You’ll also find information about natural treatments including iodine for breast pain, progesterone for heavy periods, and some of the best natural anti-androgen supplements for facial hair and acne.

You can read an essay about body literacy and learn about alternatives to hormonal birth control including the pros and cons of the copper IUD (Paragard).

For more information, check out my books Period Repair Manual and Hormone Repair Manual, which cover topics such as the benefits of magnesium and Prometrium for perimenopause. And my podcast for “everything women’s health in under 15 minutes.”

Inositol for Mood, Sleep, and PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome)

The supplement inositol is a superstar for treating polycystic ovary syndrome. It’s also been clinically trialled for weight loss, thyroid disease, anxiety, insomnia, and premenstrual mood symptoms.

In episode nine of my podcast/YouTube video, I look at “what is inositol?”, how you can get it from diet, the difference between myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol, and why it’s all a little confusing.

One thing I forgot to mention is that to get results with inositol, you need to commit to it for at least three months. And if it works, you’ll probably want to stay on it for years. Luckily, inositol can be quite inexpensive, especially if you choose straight myo-inositol powder.

If You’re Not Thinking About Ovulation, You’re Not Thinking About Health

Benefits of ovulation and ovulatory cycles.

This is my open letter to every clinician, personal trainer, and blogger who offers health advice without thinking about the importance of ovulation and natural ovulatory menstrual cycles.

Dear Sir,

Your restrictive dietary advice may cause young women to stop ovulating which is a problem because ovulation is how women make hormones.

That makes ovulation an essential part of human physiology and not just for making babies. Ovulation is not optional. Thank you.
