Ladies! Buckle up because today we're chatting all about PERIODS. Yup, every woman's favorite monthly gift. But in all seriousness, menstruation is a huge indicator of a woman's overall health and when things are off, well the whole body is off. So I figured, let's not tip toe around the subject and get down and deep into women's menstrual health. Who better to bring on to talk about it than the author of Period Repair Manual and women's health naturopath Lara Briden.

Over the course of the last 68 episodes we've had a lot of really important conversations, but for women I think this one might be the most important. We've had conversations around Hypothalamic Amenorrhea and PCOS and from those episodes I've heard from you about how helpful these conversations have been so I thought we would talk about some of the challenges with menstruation but also how it benefits us. And well, we get down and dirty into birth control...this is definitely a great conversation!

Here are some other things we chatted about:

  • Lara's journey and how she became a naturopath
  • What is a naturopath and how is their approach different from conventional medicine?
  • What is a period and how can you benefit from it?
  • What are the types of reasons your period may not be normal
  • PCOS vs. HA and is it possible to have both?
  • The positive benefits of ovulation and menstruation and why you should be experiencing a cycle
  • Endometriosis and signs that you may have it
  • Why the birth control pill may actually be hindering menstruation
  • Alternative options to the pill and how they compare
  • Menstrual products and Lara's recommendations for a healthy vaginal biome

It's been a long time coming getting this beautiful human on the show today. Some of you may know Bettina Bogar, but many of you may not even know that you know her. Bettina is an insanely talented photographer and behind pretty image every image you've seen on THM (with the exception of the one's C takes for me!). Just look around this entire website - I have B to thank for all these images! So today I'm getting her out from behind the camera and putting her in the hot seat to answer all of my burning questions.

Bettina and I have known each other for several years now and besides being THM's official photographer, she's also one of my dear friends. I am eternally grateful to have her wisdom, work ethic and inspiration in my life. So it was due time I get to pick her brain and share all that wisdom with you. Since B and I know each other super well this episode is an especially fun one since it's a lot more relaxed and well, you'll also get to know me better too.

Here are some other things we chatted about:

  • Bettina's childhood and growing up in Budapest, Hungary
  • When she started to learn photography and how she knew she wanted to pursue it as a career
  • What prompted her move to Canada
  • Starting a creative business in a foreign country and building it from scratch
  • How she built her client base and her best tips for networking
  • What happened when her Instagram got taken down and what she learned from it
  • Why she doesn't work for exposure and neither should you
  • How she's working on self-care and finding balance between work and life
  • The one health habit she can't live without
