Period Repair Manual: Natural Treatment for Better Hormones and Better Periods
About this deal
A luteal phase is the approximately 10-14 days between ovulation and the period. It’s named after the corpus luteum, which is the temporary ovarian gland that forms after an egg is released. Having a healthy corpus luteum is the only way to make progesterone. For those teens who need birth control, there are a couple of good non-hormonal methods. The advantage of a non-hormonal method is that it permits healthy ovulatory cycles and hormone production. Lara Briden is a board certified naturopathic doctor who qualified from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in 1997. She currently runs a busy hormone clinic in Sydney, Australia, and posts regularly at Lara Briden’s Healthy Hormone Blog. Early in 2015, Lara released her book Period Repair Manual: Natural Treatment for Better Hormones and Better Periods.

This book will not mention when a study is done in mice or in vitro. Even if this book is for the layperson, it is still important information. To give one example, the book states, “endometriosis has been linked to dioxin exposure in the womb.” Yet the reference is an article about mice (which do not menstruate).

It also reduces inflammation, regulates immune function, and supports healthy thyroid, brain, bones, and breasts. This book states too much insulin causes weight gain. This has been disproven (PMID: 27385608). You may also consider the fact that GLP-1 receptor agonist medications increase insulin secretion and are associated with weight loss (PMID: 22236411).

The second half of the book is a comprehensive treatment guide including General Maintenance, and treatment protocols for specific period problems such as PCOS, PMS, heavy periods, endometriosis, and more. This book also covers the multiple different kinds of PCOS (admittedly I had no idea there were multiple kinds of PCOS!) and how to treat each one.
Better Birth Control
Briden's second book, Hormone Repair Manual,  on the topic of perimenopause and menopause, was published by Pan Macmillan in February 2021. What does natural treatment entail? Sleep, Diet, Exercise, and Supplements. A side note about sleep...The way Briden talks about periods while on the pill (what she calls "pill bleeds") not being real periods, reminded me of the way Matthew Walker talks about sleeping pill induced sedation not being real sleep in his book Why We Sleep, which I highly recommend. Period Repair Manual and Why We Sleep were both eye-opening for me. I was happy when Briden mentions the importance of sleep in this book: Your period is not just your period. It is an expression of your underlying health. When you are healthy, your menstrual cycle will arrive smoothly, regularly, and without symptoms. When you are unhealthy in some way, your cycle will tell the story.
