Seed Cycling

Seed cycling involves a methodical rotation of specific seeds in your diet based on the different phases of your menstrual cycle.

It is a natural approach that aims to balance the levels of estrogen and progesterone in your body, which fluctuate throughout your cycle. By consuming two specific seeds during the first half of your cycle and switching to two different seeds after ovulation, you can provide your body with essential fatty acids crucial for hormone production.

Incorporating seed cycling into your diet offers various health benefits, such as alleviating symptoms of PMS and menopause, regulating your menstrual cycle, improving fertility, promoting ovulation, and reducing acne.

There are numerous creative ways to include seed cycling in your meals. You can blend the seeds into smoothies, sprinkle them over salads, toast, or oatmeal, use them as a base for pesto, create homemade seed crackers, energy balls, or granola, or even make a batch of seed butter. However, if these methods seem overwhelming, simply consuming the seeds whole is also an option.

Follicular Phase

The follicular phase marks the initiation of your menstrual cycle and concludes with the occurrence of ovulation. It is the phase when your body undergoes preparations to release an egg, signifying an important stage in your reproductive cycle. Following the release of the egg, the follicular phase is considered complete. 

While there is a general pattern to menstrual cycles, it’s important to note that the length and duration of a woman’s cycle can vary.

Did You Know?

Some women refer to their period as “the moon” because the menstrual cycle is approximately 28 days, which is similar to the length of a lunar cycle. The lunar cycle is the period of time it takes for the moon to go through its phases, from new moon to full moon and back to new moon again.

In some cultures, the menstrual cycle is also associated with the moon’s phases and is considered to be a symbol of fertility, transformation, and renewal. In these cultures, the menstrual cycle is often celebrated as a natural and normal part of a woman’s life, rather than a taboo or shameful topic.

Using the term “moon” to refer to the menstrual cycle can also be a way for women to reclaim their bodies and their experiences, and to create a sense of connection with other women who share similar experiences.

It can also be a way to communicate about menstruation in a more subtle or coded way, especially in situations where the topic is considered taboo or inappropriate.
