"The book my patients have been waiting for." Dr. Peta Wright, gynecologist and women’s health advocateHormone Repair Manual is a practical guide to feeling better in your 40s, 50s, and beyond. It explains how to navigate the change of perimenopause and relieve symptoms with natural treatments such as diet, nutritional supplements, and bioidentical hormone therapy.Topics include:Why everything is different after “second puberty.”How perimenopause can be a tipping point for long-term health.The four phases of perimenopause.The role of testosterone and insulin in weight gain.How to speak with your doctor about hormone therapy including natural progesterone.Treatment protocols for all common perimenopause symptoms including night sweats, insomnia, migraines, and heavy periods.Risk reduction for osteoporosis, heart disease, and dementia.Written by best-selling author and naturopathic doctor, Lara Briden, the book is backed by evidence-based research and real-world patient stories.
I wish I had known about the Period Repair Manual by Lara Briden years ago! Now, I am glad that I could pre-order her new book and get it as soon as it was out. So worth it! It’s empowering, it explains how our female bodies work, and a true gem. If you are >35 you’ll want to have it!
I can’t say enough good things about this book – I’ve learnt so much from reading it.First of all – the fact it is science based is great – Briden backs up insights with current studies, viewpoints from other doctors in the field and her own substantial clinical experience.It also draws on a wide related field of health. I’ve learnt the skin issues a close friend has been having are more than probably related to her perimenopause; the heavy bleeding I had several years ago WAS in fact related to perimenopause (when my gynaecologist had assured me I was too young for that – 42 at the time, NOT too young it turns out), and ways to deal with a variety of annoying symptoms that have been emerging of late. The general approach is holistic – she recommends supplements, gives advice on medications and hormone therapy, and talks about lifestyle changes / how to support one’s health.She never patronises the reader – she’s polite, insightful, straightforward and warm. I also enjoyed her re-framing of what this period can mean for us. Seriously, is anyone else tired of endless doom and gloom approaches to the whole darn thing? Why on earth is menopause endlessly discussed / raked over in the media and so on in such a grim manner (that is, IF it’s talked about AT ALL – which is crazy considering (as Briden points out) 51% of humans will go through it at some stage)?I feel generally more upbeat having read this book: more informed and a more positive outlook about it all.It IS quite sciency – but give it a go.
Very detailed yet simple explanation of what’s going on in the woman’s body. Full of useful recommendations. Highly recommend to all women in their 40s.
