Lara Briden, N.D.

Naturopathic Doctor

Dr. Lara Briden is a naturopathic doctor and women’s health activist currently working in Christchurch, New Zealand. She first worked as a researcher and evolutionary biologist at the University of Calgary. Then she went on to graduate as a naturopathic doctor from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto.

Dr. Briden's love of science and the natural world has informed the way she works with patients. She views the body as a logical, regenerative system that knows what to do when it's given the right support. And in her 20 years of practice, she has seen that simple principle in action with thousands of patients. Her book Period Repair Manual is a compilation of lessons from her practice that work for periods and specifically for coming off birth control.
