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!

Sensigirl ,

One of my go-to’s!

I’ve followed Megan and Dr. Alex on Instagram for quite some time, but have finally started to venture into the podcast world a bit more. Have loved learning about hormone health and now all about mold! What a partnership of knowledge. Highly recommended you give it a try.

Missing Link!

When it comes to women’s health, we often have to fight for ourselves over and over until we find answers. Awareness is everything, and Megan & Dr. Alex are doing the vitally important work of digging deeper into women’s health issues and sharing their hard-earned knowledge with the world. I’m so grateful to have found them.
