What is Seed cycling?
Seed cycling is hormone supporting and balancing practice. The idea is that certain types of seeds, such as pumpkin, flax, sunflower and sesame seeds, can help regulate the levels of estrogen, progesterone and other hormones.
It is believed that seed cycling can regulate periods, reduce acne, PMS symptoms, treat PCOS, endometriosis, and infertility. It can also help stimulate menstruation if it’s absent and ease symptoms of menopause as hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, and mood swings.
Phase 1(menstruation to ovulation, approx. day 1 to day 14 of your cycle): eat 1-2 tbsps of ground pumpkin and ground flax seeds daily.
Phase 2(ovulation to menstruation, approx. day 15 to day 24 of your cycle): eat 1-2 tbsps of ground sunflower and ground sesame seeds daily.
You can mix the ground seeds into a smoothie or sprinkle them on your oatmeal.
