I should have stopped reading this book when I read the most vapid sentence ever uttered by human beings The Universe has got your back UGH.There were some helpful hints in this book, but nothing new if you know about the female menstrual cycle Then there s some psychobabble I really do want to read a good book with new research on the psychological changes during the menstrual cycle. So Much Woo Save your money and look for a book about the menstrual cycle that sticks to facts and evidence There are portions of this book, like the first section, which provide a genuinely helpful insight into how our cycles work from a biological perspective I did learn a lot about my body.But and it s a big one beyond that there is so much woo and quackery that I almost couldn t finish the book I held out in case there were any nuggets of useful information there weren t Beyond the pseudoscientific treatments I also find it unhelpful to suggest restricting one s life and work according to a largely arbitrary set of seasons Who in the real world can reorganise all public speaking to land on a handful of days in the month Or to restrict creativity, socialising, introspection, developing plans etc etc according to someone else s imposed timetable I really do find it odd in 2019 to be restricting women to be slaves to the monthly calendar Feels like a real step away from equality.And if you don t believe me about the cycle seasons being largely arbitrary, try the section for those not menstruating trans post menopausal etc which explains how you can just map the seasons into the phases of the moon How about this gem There hasn t been much research on cod liver oil packs , but it s been used by women for over 100 years and is proven to work proven without research If it sounds like a duck Have you ever wondered what your body is doing while you re on your period Have you ever experienced a change in your cycle or symptoms and been unsure what it meant Period Power is a fantastic guide to your body, your cycle, and ways to improve your relationship to menstruation Maisie Hill strikes a great balance between accessibility and scientific background, making this book both readable and reliable Don t let the casual tone fool you Period Power is full of research, experience, and practical advice The biggest takeaway from this book is the life changing influence of keeping a menstrual journal and tracking your personal patterns during your cycle Period Power will have you saying, Wow, I had no idea at least once per chapter.
