Balance your hormones NATURALLY!
Try Seed Cycling…Seed cycling is a natural way to balance your hormones throughout the two phases of your menstrual cycle using the nutrients found in seeds. By boosting estrogen in the first phase and progesterone in the second, seed cycling can help relieve PMS, increase fertility, ease pain from conditions like ovarian cysts, endometriosis, and PCOS, and regulate irregular cycles. It can be effective for women who are menstruating, pre-menopause, postpartum, and post-menopause.
FOLLICULAR PHASE begins on the first day of menstruation.
Estrogen levels start low and steadily increase to prepare for ovulation. To keep estrogen levels in balance, we cycle with flax seeds that contain phytoestrogens which adapt to the body’s estrogen needs during this phase. If estrogen levels get too high, the lignans in the flax seeds can bind to the excess so it can be eliminated from the body. We also cycle with pumpkin seeds, which are high in zinc to support progesterone production in the next phase.
In addition to the seeds we add the following:
NETTLE: Nettle is a blood-purifier because it supports the liver and kidneys, while gently detoxing the body. Nettle helps to decrease heavy menstrual flow by making your period lighter and reducing the severity of cramps. It increases milk supply for nursing women, supports the adrenals, and supports the thyroid gland.
ASHWAGANDHA: Everyone knows the lovely symptoms associated with PMS! Ashwagandha helps to boost mood, prevents fatigue, irritability, mood swings, and anxiety by nourishing the adrenals and thyroid.
HOLY BASIL: Holy basil contains iron, which can help lower stress. It may also help improve circulation, reduce inflammation, bloating, irritability, and reduce anxiety. It also may help control blood sugar levels.
NUTRITIONAL YEAST: Nutritional yeast is chock-full of B vitamins, which help reduce stress, nervousness, and PMS symptoms.
HIMALAYAN SALT: We are all too familiar with the salty food cravings associated with PMS. Therefore, we included the nutrient-dense pink Himalayan Salt because it is rich in trace minerals potassium, calcium, and iron; helping the body get rid of the excess water retention associated with PMS symptoms.
