Episode Info:

This week on the podcast I am bringing you a guest episode with Dr. Lara Briden (author of Period Repair Manual) and I am SO excited to share this interview. Lara answers my 10000 questions on all things periods, hormones, birth control, and more.

In this episode we dig into what a healthy period looks like, symptoms of HA and PCOS (and how sometimes the two can be confused), how low carb diets could lead to a lack of ovulation and why ovulation is SO important for our health as women, an honest conversation about hormonal birth control and how it affects the body, endometriosis, PMS and so much more.

A little about Lara: Lara Briden is a naturopathic doctor and the period revolutionary—leading the change to better periods. Informed by a strong science background and more than twenty years with patients, Lara is a passionate communicator about women's health and alternatives to hormonal birth control. Her book Period Repair Manual is a manifesto of natural treatment for better hormones and better periods and provides practical solutions using nutrition, supplements, and natural hormones. Now in its second edition, the book has been an underground sensation and has worked to quietly change the lives of tens of thousands of women.

I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did
