How to Seed Cycle to Support Your Hormones

While it may be a bit of a stretch to say that every woman you know is having menstrual cycle issues, it’s not terribly far off. It seems like reproductive issues are incredibly common these days, doesn’t it? Up to 10 percent of women—roughly 5 million Americans—suffer from PCOS, or polycystic ovary syndrome. Writer and director Lena Dunham recently went public about her struggle with endometriosis. It’s great that women’s health issues are getting more attention in the national dialogue.

If you have minor hormonal issues, are trying to conceive, need to balance your hormones during menopause or just want to support your natural cycle, you may want to consider seed cycling. Seed cycling is a gentle and natural way to support your body as it moves through the various stages of your monthly cycle.

The Female Hormonal Cycle

First, here’s a bit of background on how the female cycle works. During the first half of the cycle, estrogen is the dominant hormone controlling your reproductive system. Estrogen stimulates the growth of the uterine lining to prepare for a potential pregnancy.

The second half of your cycle is dominated by progesterone. This hormone supports the lining while preventing your ovaries from releasing another egg in case of pregnancy.

How Seeds Support Your Cycle

You may already know that synthetic chemicals called xenoestrogens mimic the body’s natural hormones. Many women have also spent time on hormonal birth control pills, which can lead to estrogen dominance and other hormone issues.

By supporting the manufacture of the correct hormones at the proper time in your cycle, you may be able to balance your hormones and restore its natural rhythm.

How to Seed Cycle

To seed cycle, all you have to do is consume estrogen-balancing seeds during the first 15 days of your cycle and progesterone-supporting seeds during the second half.

Days 1-14: Consume ground flax and pumpkin seeds. According to One Green Planet, flax seeds contain lignans, which help block excess estrogen. Pumpkin seeds support progesterone balance so your estrogen-progesterone levels remain at a healthy ratio. Most importantly, both of these seeds contain high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for the manufacture of all hormones.

Days 15-the end of your cycle: Consume sunflower and sesame seeds. These seeds contain selenium and zinc, which support hormone balance by keeping estrogen levels in check and support the production of progesterone.

Bonus tip: Look for unsalted, ground versions of your seeds. Take 1 tablespoon of each seed per day when it’s meant to be consumed.

I have used spell casting to get my ex husband back to me and also get pregnant with twins through the help of a great and trusted spell caster. When I came online last year, I met a testimony about Priest ODUNGA who has been helping people and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and he said he would also help me get Fredrick back after 3 years of no contact. When your spouse leaves you, you feel your whole world start crumbling down. There is nothing that seem right anymore. When I met Priest Odunga, he is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours and when I received herbal medicine for fertility, I became fertile. I and my husband reconnected, had sex and I became pregnant. I am happy today to be the mother of twins girls and this is ALL THANKS TO PRIEST ODUNGA. If you need help, you are saved with this spell caster, contact his email at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you too will give a testimony too to help others
