Megan Hallett Period Party Podcast

Megan Hallett is a practicing nutrition and holistic health coach currently studying to be a nutritional therapist at London’s college of naturalistic medicine. She’s a huge wellness enthusiast, recipe developer, and voice behind the blog Plant-Based Londoner. Megan’s interest in hormone health came when she was diagnosed with PCOS as a teenager and was left frustrated to find doctors simply prescribed pills to mask the symptoms, rather than providing any information to enable her to tackle the root cause. Megan is also the author of The Happy Balance: The Original Plant-Based Approach For Hormone Health, which features a chapter I contributed on hormonal health and periods throughout the lifecycle. It is now available in bookstores everywhere.

In this episode, we talk about how Megan’s health journey led to her fascination with hormonal health, our motivation to write The Happy Balance, what you can learn from the book, why every diet doesn’t work for everybody, how to take a healthy approach to starting a plant-based diet, and so much more!
