In her twenty years of practice Lara has learned that period problems respond incredibly well to nutrition and other natural treatments. Period problems can be fixed without the band-aid solution of hormonal birth control. Her mission is to bring that message to women everywhere. To empower women to have easy, symptomless periods and join the worldwide "period revolution."


Her book Period Repair Manual provides practical period solutions using nutrition, supplements, and natural hormones. Now in its second edition, it's been an underground sensation and has worked to quietly change the lives of tens of thousands of women around the world.
