I am passionate about women’s health.

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

The site also includes several articles about alternatives to hormonal birth control including the pros and cons of the copper IUD (Paragard).

If you need more information, check out my book Period Repair Manual, now in its second edition. And stay tuned for my new book for women over 40, which will cover topics such as the benefits of magnesium and Prometrium for perimenopause.
