Alex and Megan are a duo of an MD and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner. After individually dealing with severe hormonal imbalances, they developed the 4 Phase Cycle Approach which helps women just like them take back their vital female health. By learning to work WITH the natural cycles of the body, rather than AGAINST them, Megan and Alex teach women how to stop continually searching for the next best thing and figure out exactly what should go in their personal health toolkit. They don’t believe in prescribed diets, food deprivation, or “fighting” illnesses. Instead, they’re all about having fun with the imperfections of life and overcoming trying to be everything to everyone.

This podcast consists of seasons which are made up of “podclasses”. Each season focuses on one particular topic and delving deep into the details. Season 1 has 24 podclasses, all focused on teaching women how to live in sync with their feminine cycles. More seasons to come!

Such great info on mould

The best there is!

These two provide so much assistance and value with their content but more than that they deliver it in such a connected and relatable way. As a pain patient and suspected mould issue suffer too, their work had been so helpful I can’t even explain! They have a deep understanding of the science and technical knowledge, but you really feel that they really know what it’s like and make suggestions that are realistic, achievable and compassionate! Thank you so much ladies!
