Description

A practical guide to understanding your cycle and balancing your hormones with nutrition and yoga, for a calm and pain-free period. Written by Le’Nise Brothers, a nutritional therapist, yoga teacher and popular women’s health, hormone and wellbeing coach. 

You Can Have A Better Period is a straight-talking resource to help women understand their  menstrual cycles and finally get answers to questions such as: “why am I so moody right before my period?”, “are periods supposed to be so painful?”, “why is my period so heavy?”, “is it normal to get headaches right before my period?”

Le'Nise Brothers takes us through each phase of our cycle, including a clear programme of nutrition and lifestyle changes. The book explains which supplements work and the key stress management habits we can implement, to bring long-lasting and sustainable changes to our hormonal balance and menstrual health. 
 
In Western society, we have accepted a cultural narrative that periods are supposed to be painful, emotional and messy. This book will be a practical guide that helps women change the way they look at their period, and finally harness the power of the fifth vital sign.

This is a valuable resource and full of fantastic information. It has easy to implement strategies and ideas to have an improved period. This is one I'll return to again and again. Many thanks to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for the advanced copy of the book.

This is a must read for anyone that feels like they don't understand as much as they should about their menstrual cycle. I went into this book with limited knowledge of my menstrual cycle and now I feel like I have a much better understanding of what goes on inside my body each month. If you struggle with any element of your cycle (pain, PMS etc) this book will encourage you to see that there are ways to combat these symptoms - through nutrition, stress management etc. This book is extremely scientific and can feel quite heavy at times so I would recommend to dip in and out of it where appropriate.

I wish this book had been around 20 years ago and I had read it then because it would have made all those years of pain, discomfort and embarrassment. Le'Nise Brothers provides advice on what can be a taboo topic for many women in a calm and friendly voice. She explains the science of menstruation in simple terms and what changes happen with our bodies during each phase of the monthly cycle.

I really liked the chapters on painful periods and why we may get moody, along with suggestions on how to relieve these problems. This is a book I am going to gift to my goddaughter and nieces so that they are well informed. A must read for all menstruating people (and those in their families)!

Great book to learn all about the menstrual cycle. Easy to understand medical processes that should be required reading in a health class. Detailed lists of lifestyle ways to improve menstrual health are provided inculing diet, exercise, and sleep habits. The book even contains a thorough list of resources for further reading including recommended products and podcasts. This is a book to gift your girlfriends and daughters.
