—Roadmap to Progesterone – Article by naturopathic doctor Lara Briden. I’ve found her information on hormones helpful to understand the menstrual cycle, perimenopause, and menopause, and how to support our bodies during this time to help with associated symptoms. **However, as for the information on her website about endometriosis, I have seen misinformation there, so take any of that info with a grain of salt.** Having said that though, some of her recommendations may be helpful for some people to manage endometriosis symptoms, but not to suppress the disease, shrink, or remove it. While she links to some studies on how X supplement etc can “reduce lesions” and other claims, these studies have design flaws. Remember – no matter the diet, lifestyle, herbs, supplements, etc, endometriosis still remains and can even progress leading to fused organs, bowel blockages, silent kidney death, etc, even if a person becomes asymptomatic.
