  1. I just purchased and read your book. I have thrown out all the gluten, dairy, sugar and vegetable oil in my house. I was already unable to drink any alcohol. I have had regular periods since my cycle began, but they have always been painful and they have always been accompanied with a migraine. The migraines are intense and can last up to a week. I’ve been on every course of pill therapy imaginable, including Botox. Nothing works. Your theory of inflammatory foods has made more sense than anything anyone else has come up with so far. Now I am perimenopausal. The migraines are worse and are hard to predict because my periods are unpredictable. I pour drugs into my system when I have one…..sumatriptin, naproxen, tornadol, hydrocodone, Pepcid… and then take weeks to recover. I just removed the gluten and sugar from my diet and I’ve been diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I started taking Magnesium as you suggested, but I’m not sure what else I should be doing. Please, any suggestions for diet and supplement would be welcomed. The book was terrific and eye opening. If the change in diet works, it will be a life changer for me.

  2. Dear Dr. Briden,
    I’m wondering whether your book covers uterine fibroids and how one might treat them naturally, if this is even possible.
    Also, do you explore Autoimmune Progesterone Dermatitis/Autoimmune Progesterone Anaphylaxis at all in your manual?
    Thank you so much.

    • Yes, I do discuss fibroids in the book. I do a survey of conventional treatments and I offer some natural treatments. Fibroids are not likely shrink substantially with natural treatment, but they will stop growing, which is enough for many women. If you can just get through to menopause, they should then shrink by about 50%.

      • Thank you, Dr. Briden. I sincerely appreciate your input.
        If I might ask again, do you happen to have any knowledge of Autoimmune Progesterone Dermatitis/Anaphylaxis, or might you be able to direct me to a source that would?

        • I have treated autoimmune progesterone dermatitis, but No, I don’t discuss it in the book. My experience is that it responds to treatments that correct autoimmunity generally (such as correcting intestinal permeability). I think that’s a better approach than the conventional treatment of suppressing ovulation and progesterone.

          • Thank you again, especially for having simply acknowledged the reality of APD, which many medical professionals do not. This is perhaps a long-shot question, but do you ever make it out to the US for treatment sessions overseas? I would see you in a heartbeat in Australia if I could, but it’s not in the cards for me right now. If you have any colleagues or referrals in the States, I’d be happy to receive those suggestions as well. I have had five years of my life compromised by APD, and I am in all honesty desperately trying to find a safe, sustainable, preferably natural means of management so I can get back on the wagon and live my life the way I’d like to.

            I sincerely appreciate your time, patience, and helpfulness, Dr. Briden. Many thanks for making yourself so accessible.

  3. Hi Lara
    I love your book!
    Such a great resource for a mum with daughters, Thank you.

    I would like to ask you for any natural suggestions for night sweats on day 1 to 3 of a period.

    • Hi Karyn,

      Thanks for your feedback.

      Estrogen is lowest on day 1 to 3, so nights sweats are not uncommon. One of the best ways to prevent estrogen from dipping too low is to avoid other things that deplete or block estrogen such as stress, smoking and excess soy products. It also helps to stabilise adrenal function (or hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis — HPA axis). I explain that in the book.

  4. Hi, I am not on facebook or twitter or youtube so posting a Q here. I have requested to go on wait list for consult with you when you next visit Sydney but before then can you let me know what the best day to get a blood test for checking hormones re period issues is? Is it day 21?
    I plan to get your book and Suzzanne Somers I’m Too Young For This is on my list also although I get the impression the latter is mostly about HRT for menopause.
    I hope you visit Sydney soon, thank-you!

    • The best day to test progesterone is about 1 week before your period is due (that’s day 21 in a standard 28 day cycle, but not everyone has a 28 day cycle). Early menopause (younger than 45) is not common, but you can test for it with FSH and LH blood test.

  5. Any help on what to take for woman with complete hysterectomy? Stage 1 a, believed was bio identical hormone over dose to much estrogen, slow growing .no chemo, no radiation.

  6. Thanks, Lara! I just bought your book and have had a read. It has clarified a few things for me and given me a sense of reassurance about a few things. 🙂 Great information, thank you so much.
