Topics Discussed:

  • How to work with your body’s natural hormone phases before, during or after baby 
  • What the four phase approach is and it can help balance hormones
  • What emotions to expect during the four phases and how to use them to your advantage
  • Support for moms who haven’t had their cycle back postpartum
  • When you can expect your cycle to return postpartum and how to nourish this transition
  • Support for moms who have new difficulties with their cycle postpartum

Show Notes:

Dr. Alex Golden (M.D.) and Megan Blacksmith (Health Coach & Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner) of Zesty Ginger work with pre-menopausal women in an online group format.  We focus on balancing hormones and supporting detoxification by teaching women to use the phases of their menstrual cycles to their advantage.  

The natural ebb and flow that happens to our hormones, organ systems, and bodies overall as women is there to renew and strengthen us. When we work with the natural cycles of our bodies, we allow ourselves to heal and recover on a level that few of us ever reach when we operate within the “rules” of the hectic modern world. Even the alternative medicine world has lost its connection to how the female body operates. Most protocols and health programs out there show no regard for the cycles that govern the flow of our bodies as women. By focusing on different activities, elixirs, foods and rituals each week of your cycle we can help the body to detoxify naturally.

They are the founders of the PMS Project and Healthy Hormones group as well as hosts of the 4 Phase Cycle Podcast.
