This author is an incredible resource for reproductive health and dare I say a "trailblazer" in the field! I love the way Dr. Briden makes it clear that you don't have periods when you are on the pill. Bleeds do not equal periods. Pills do not "regulate" periods, they hijack them and suppress ovulation. Bleeds are a result of withdrawing off the synthetic hormones. Most people (including doctors) do not understand this crucial point. She has great dietary advice as well. Her herbal knowledge is admirable.
Overall, the book is an excellent read for women looking to improve their periods and their health. I look forward to future editions with more information on Fertility Awareness Method because it is a vital component to cycle health; a woman's fifth vital sign.
Lara Briden advocates for the woman's body and makes me proud to have a uterus. You have a right to painless periods, she says. I am encouraged to help my body function better and attain better health rather than knock it down with artificial hormones and cut off its processes.
The author's simple prose was at first insulting, and then necessary as she layered concept over concept. I read chapters over so I would have a good grasp of the concepts to explain them to my friends because that's what women do--we educate and pass it on.
Lastly, I found the section on "how to talk to your doctor" helpful, yet, awkward. I'm not sure I could keep the confrontational tone out of my voice and ask those questions. I have experienced the one-size-fits-all pill prescription solution from doctors. They told me to take the pill and offered nothing beyond that. But there's so much more. To Lara Briden, Thanks for opening my mind to the complexity of my body. I love you for writing this book.
The book provides an amazing insight into different topics. How much I wish doctor Briden would consult via Skype but since she isn't able, this is the closest thing you can get to her advice on many important issues. I love how simple yet insightful her writing is.
Truly a source to keep home for references.
