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!

    Last week, Megan talked about the ups and downs of your cycles. In this episode, Dr. Alex talks about what tends to happen during phases 2 and 3 in our brains and physiologically

    She covers the problem we usually face during these phases: 

    - When we attempt to ovulate, we can have issues with kicking up histamine [anxiety, bloating] people can feel very bad at this part of the cycle.

    - PMS symptoms show during phase 3 and tend to snowball up to Phase 4.

Where are episodes 2/3 of season 1?

Great podcast love that you’re empowering women to take control of their own bodies. I’m listening to season 1 and can’t find episodes 2 and 3 though.
Thanks for the podcast and hope you can re post those!

The best hormonal health podcast!!

I’ve listened to many, many podcasts about hormonal health and came upon this one last week. I’m binge listening to all the episodes and taking copious notes because not only will you get the best and clearest explanations for what actually happens inside your body through the cycle, you will also get super simple and easy action steps to implement in order to really get control over your health and thrive! These ladies are the bomb. A truly spectacular and empowering resource for women, full of information, knowledge, wisdom and tips. The best.
