For the millions of menstruating women who suffer from debilitating pain, erratic periods, heavy bleeding, or the effects of premenstrual syndrome every month, this book explores a crucial missing link: stress. Drawing on personal experience of overcoming crippling period pain and clinical expertise as a medical herbalist, Natasha Richardson gives practical advice on using simple herbal remedies and how to change the way we approach our daily schedules - from sleep to nutrition. Common menstrual problems are explored with advice on how to treat their underlying causes. Heavy bleeding, erratic cycles, missed periods, painful cramps, acne, breast tenderness, PMS, migraine, and anxiety are featured plus the red flag symptoms to watch out for. Conditions such as endometriosis, PCOS, and fibroids are looked at in depth with accompanying treatment plans.

I'm a slow reader, but working my way through this book in no time - even though I'm highlighting passages and taking notes too! It's such a treat to read, full of invaluable knowledge, and the author's unique voice comes through in the best way possible. I love that you're basically picked up where you are with your knowledge about periods (which for me, I had to realise, was basically non-existent), and learn more with every page without feeling overwhelmed. Also need to mention the recipe section, which is filled with recipes you can totally try, without needing to go out and find a bunch of fancy ingredients. I'll be recommending/gifting it to everyone with a period!
