This Sunday! 🌸
Join @ashacarrollmccullough (HHC, AADP, founder of @wellflowerco and Phasey) for a workshop conversation on the link between hormonal health and whole food nutrition .
This is part discussion and part hands-on workshop as we will create our own seed cycle blends to take home. We will explore the relationship between whole food nutrition and its ability to balance and support our hormones, and we will discuss the benefits that phase-based nutrition
can provide, including relieving period pain, balancing mood fluctuations, supporting cycle regularity, improving fertility, nourishing skin, and healing digestive health .
Our workshop will cover:
1) The magic of hormones through each phase of the cycle
2) The unique nutritional needs of each cycle phase
3) The balancing effects of phase-based nutrition
4) Simple, functional ways to incorporate phase-based eating into your everyday life
5) How to seed cycle (and make your own seed cycle blends)
6) Space for questions .

I think someone will need to read this. .
Seeds does the wonders for the body and it’s not even an exaggeration.
The most important thing I think is balancing Omega 3:6 ratio and also estrogen/progesterone balance.
Did I hear someone say ‘total hormone balance’ ..Yes!
But it also does much more.. #gramottwellness
One of the most common hormone imbalances is Estrogen Dominance. This can come from your body making too much estrogen, your body not eliminating the excess estrogen that it does not need, or not producing enough progesterone in relation to estrogen.
These are some of the common symptoms associated with Estrogen Dominance. A hormone test, such as the DUTCH test, can confirm this imbalance. When having hormone testing, it is important that your provider requests the test be done at the right time of your cycle for the results to be accurate.
In order to address Estrogen Dominance, clearing excess estrogen from the body more efficiently and limiting exposure to chemicals, products, and hormones that can mimic estrogen are two of the top strategies.
This should include:
1. Promoting good liver health so that it is able to detoxify and clear excess estrogen.
2. Working on gut health to promote a healthy balance of good bacteria vs bad bacteria, reduce inflammation in the body, and regular bowel movements to eliminate excess estrogen.
3. Avoiding hormones in conventional meat, pesticides in produce, chemicals in personal care products and cleaning supplies, along with other xenoestrogens (things that mimic estrogen in the body)
Need more help or would like more info on natural ways to reverse hormonal imbalance, such as Estrogen Dominance? Head over to my website for a freebie guide: Simple Strategies for Better Hormone Health. Link in bio.
Seed Cycling Phase 2: 1 tbsp daily of ground sesame and sunflower seeds are helpful during the second half of your cycle, known as the luteal phase, to support progesterone balance. This is typically from cycle day 14 (ovulation) until your next period. No menstrual cycle? No problem! These seeds can be done from the full moon until the new moon!
SEED CYCLING FOR HORMONES.
⁉️Does it work? Depends on the individual but there are MANY success stories…plus, plenty of benefits and zero risk in trying! Give it at least a few months though! Now, this won’t work if you have a shit diet around seed cycling nor is this usually the single thing needed for hormone optimization. It’s great to add (and easy to implement) if you’re up for it though.
⁉️How does it work? Seed cycling is a practice of eating various seeds at certain times of the menstrual cycle. These seeds have different nutritional properties (lignans, fats, zinc, fiber, vit E) and can support production and metabolism of hormones at the right times.
⁉️The science? The seed cycling practice is not studied BUT the impact and mechanisms of individual nutrients IN the seeds is studied. Example: lignans, a type of phytoestrogen in flaxseed can impact estrogen metabolism (aka can help shift the breakdown of estrogen to a healthy version).
⁉️How to seed cycle:
🔸Follicular phase: 1st half of cycle (day 1 of period to day 14ish or ovulation) ✨1 tbsp ground flaxseed & 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds daily
🔸Luteal phase: 2nd half of cycle (day 15ish or ovulation to onset of period)
✨1 tbsp sunflower seeds & 1 tbsp sesame seeds daily

I’ve been open about struggling with my own health, even as a nutritionist.
When I tell people about my side hustle they often reply with comments about how my diet must be perfect, or I must not eat things like sweets or chips.
But I absolutely do.
And I’ve been open about how in the last 6 months or so my health has taken a back seat to other things going on in my personal life.
A break up
A move + packing my house
Not moving and unpacking my house
School start up
There has been a lot of stress in my life lately.
A lot of really great, beautiful, perfect things.
And also a lot of stress.
And because I haven’t been prioritizing my health I can really feel the effects of that stress.
I’m finding myself increasingly
I’m very much of the belief that I create my outcome.
I can’t always control my surroundings.
But I do have control over how I react and how I support my body so that it’s able to handle stressful situations.
I know that through a good diet and mindful exercises like yoga and meditation, I can support myself so that stressful events don’t completely derail me mentally and physically.
And this needs to become a priority again.
Because I know stressful things will come up in the future.
And I want to be strong enough to handle it.
I want to know that I’ve got this.
Instead of worrying that one more thing added to my plate will break me.
I want to feel strong again.
And I know I’m not alone.
We all have circumstances in our lives that are beyond our control.
And what we CAN do about it is arm ourselves with stress-reduction techniques, nutrition so our bodies are better able to handle the stress, and mindset shifts so that we feel strong mentally too.
In light of this, and because it’s what I’ll be doing for myself anyway, I’m thinking of putting together a week of FREE stress reduction education for anyone interested.
I would include ways you can arm yourself to be able to handle stress through:
And anything else I think could be beneficial.
If this is something you’d be interested in seeing let me know in the comments.💛

What is Seed Cycling?
It’s a remedy of naturopathic medicine said to be a natural way to balance your hormones using the benefits from flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds & sesame seeds at the follicular & luteal phases of your cycle to balance estrogen & progesterone levels. •
How to do about 𝒮ℯℯ𝒹 𝒞𝓎𝒸𝓁𝒾𝓃ℊ:
Follicular phase: days 1-14 you eat 1 tablespoon of pumpkin seeds & 1 tbsp of ground flaxseeds, whole flaxseeds don’t get digested as easily sometimes not at all, this helps support estrogen productions. (If you’re not on a 28 day cycle it’s phase your cycle)
Luteal Phase: days 15-28 or 30 you eat 1 tbsp of sunflower seeds & 1 tbsp of sesame seeds to support progesterone production. •
🌚 Seed Cycling helps: 🌛 Regulate Periods
🌛 Reduce Acne
🌛 Ease Menopause Symptoms
🌛 Hair Health
🌛 Weight Loss
🌛 Water Retention
🙋🏻♀️ Id love to hear from you if you’ve tried seed cycling. 🖤𝒞ℴ𝓃𝓈𝒸𝒾ℴ𝓊𝓈 ℳ𝒶𝓂𝒶 #seedcycling#seedsyncing#powerofnature#toxinfree#toxinfreeliving#healingthroughnature#naturopathicremedies

Pane tostato con crema di avocado e semi di sesamo (sullo sfondo, un bicchiere di kefir)
Colazione non è solo latte e biscotti, té con pane e marmellata, cornetto e cappuccino.. la colazione salata è decisamente migliore dal punto di vista glicemico e spesso riesce a saziare di più e più a lungo rispetto a quella dolce.
Ovviamente anche in questo caso bisogna stare attenti a bilanciare bene i macronutrienti e ad usare materie prime di qualità.

It’s that time of the year again😍!!
🍂Sweater weather, Christmas vibes slowly approaching and chestnuts roasting on open fires at almost every corner of the city🌰🔥.
😋In German ‘Kastanien/Marroni’ and in Spanish ‘Castañas’, these creamy nuts...
—can help improve digestion, thanks to their high content of fiber.
—predominantly contain complex carbohydrates, which our body digests slowly for a stable energy source.
—boost our immune system and support the formation of blood vessels, cartilage, muscle, and collagen throughout our body, due to their Vitamin C content.
—have a good amount of copper, a mineral that helps our body form red blood cells.
🤗🌑Chestnuts are ideal during our menstrual phase and can be eaten as plain snack, added to salads, soups, stuffings or pretty much any other fall/winter preparation☃️🍲. ❁ #bloommuesli#foodstoflow#eatintentionally

It’s taken me a long time to acknowledge the magic inside me.
I used to see it more as an inconvenience.
And now I absolutely love the qualities I once hated so much.
Recently I recorded a podcast episode with the amazing @kelseyreidl and we dive deep into this topic and how my mindset changed from self-hate to self-love.
Stay tuned for more information when this podcast episode airs!💛

Seed cycling is recommended all over the internet for "hormone balancing" and getting your period back. But there is very little actual evidence for this being effective. The rationale given to support it also varies from site to site, in some cases not even being logical (like claiming to "block excess estrogen" during both the follicular and luteal phases).
It's also promoted to help restore missing periods, in which case you're supposed to alternate seeds based on the phase of the moon.
As a scientist I wanted to dig deeper and find out where this protocol might have originated, and what evidence there really is to support it.
The answer to the first question as far as I can tell is that it was just made up because it sounded good. If anyone knows more about the origins please share!
The answer to the second question is covered in my blog post http://noperiod.info/seedcycling #linkinbio - the short version is that while each of the seeds contains nutrients that your body can use, there is NO evidence to support switching between seeds.
For period recovery, the seed with the best evidence for benefit is flax seed which is why I recommend that and that alone for period recovery purposes.
For PCOS there is evidence that sesame seeds decrease DHEAS and also increase levels of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) which is typically low in women with PCOS and contributes to high levels of free testosterone. Therefore eating sesame seeds may be beneficial for women with PCOS.
Eat the other seeds as you like. But for period recovery, 10g flax every day (1.5-2 Tbsp) is most evidence supported.
(You should probably NOT eat daily flax while pregnant as there was a rat study that showed some concerns with reproductive system development in embryos.)

Red or “purple” cabbage has easily become one of my favorite vegetables 💜
Red cabbage is great for our immune system because it’s packed with vitamin C
It also contains important anthocyanins and phytonutrients that have antioxidants to help fight chronic inflammation (and truth be told, we ALL need help in this area! Inflammation leads to disease)
And when fermented, cabbage is GREAT for your gut health & helps protect us against leaky gut syndrome
Slice thin, Sauté some with ghee or avocado oil, and add to your breakfast bowl for a powerhouse of nutrients ☺️
Yewww! 😍 Chickpea pancakes layered with sautéed veggies and avocado 🥑💚😍 Incorporating more fats into my diet was critical in my ED recovery, especially around my orthorexia 🙅♀️ A few years ago, I got in this mentality that all fats (even nuts and seeds) were bad 🧐 It’s crazy to think back to that time; I was so intense, judgmental, militant, anxious, and just scared 😣 I was scared of myself, of others, of the world 🙈 Restricting fats was a way of denying myself of basic nourishment - and essentially in a space of fear where I shunned away from my full capacity of who I was and what I can do 🌟 Stepping out of the fear and into a place of love isn’t easy - it’s a daily practice 💕 But with each action that we take towards love (and that action can be as simple as including more food on your plate!) counts! You are worthy 🤗

SEED CYCLING FOR HORMONE BALANCE
I want to share with you a little secret that I personally use in my journey to healing from exacerbated PCOS and hormone imbalances.
SEED CYCLING! It’s so secretive that I bet you haven’t heard of it or maybe you don’t know what it is.
Seed Cycling is a gentle and natural way to balance your hormones throughout your menstrual cycle by using nutrients found in seeds.
In a healthy cycle you have two phases: Follicular and Luteal.
Follicular phase starts on the first day of your bleed and here estrogen is dominant. Once ovulation occurs, around day 14, the Luteal phase begins with progesterone being dominant.
By consuming seeds that support these hormones we are essentially encouraging our body to produce the amount of hormones we need, as well as helping our body to eliminate what we don’t need. How cool is that?
Using food as our medicine we can help minimize and heal from challenging symptoms that arrive from hormone imbalances such as PCOS, PMS, initiate absent menstruation, regulate menstrual cycle, reduce endometriosis symptoms, enhance ovulation, improve menopausal symptoms, and more.
Lucky for us- it’s easy! Use the guide here that shows you which seeds to use during your different phases of your cycle. Toss in 1tbsp of each seed into your daily nutrition. Allow your body time to adjust and the seeds to work their magic so this may take a few months- Don’t Give Up!
Check my story for more info and tips- PLUS my absolute favorite way to consume seeds during my cycle☺️

Hemp seeds are one of my favourite sources of energy, they are full of fatty acids, dietary fiber and and great source of plant based protein.🌱 These balls are seed cycling friendly too for those who love seed cycling as much as I do! 🧡
Seed Cycling Phase 1: 1 tbsp daily of ground flax and pumpkin seeds are helpful during the first half of your cycle, known as the follicular phase, to support estrogen balance. This is typically from the first day of your period until cycle day 14 (ovulation). No menstrual cycle? No problem! These seeds can be done from the new moon until the full moon!
So ihr Lieben mir ist es ein Anliegen mehr Frauen darüber aufzuklären, weil ich nicht möchte, dass ihr denkt ihr hättet einen zu langen, zu kurzen, unregelmäßigen oder irgendwie unnormalen Zyklus, wenn dem eigentlich gar nicht so ist.
Dieser im Trend liegende "Verbesserungswahn" sorgt dafür, dass Frauen sogar den Zyklus optimieren wollen... gerade im Bereich Ernährung gibt es aktuell Bücher, die suggerieren, dass mit bestimmten Lebensmitteln der Zyklus gesteuert werden kann. .
Ich möchte euch liebevoll ans Herz legen, dass es dafür keinerlei fundierte Hinweise gibt. Entscheidet selbst, was für euch passt und was nicht.😌
So nun kommen wir mal zum Punkt: ➡️WIE LANG DARF EIN NORMALER ZYKLUS SEIN?⬅️
‼️In der Medizin gelten alle Zykluslängen zwischen 23-35 Tage als NORMAL.‼️ Ich hoffe, dass jetzt schon mal viele von euch aufatmen. Jetzt kommt noch dazu, dass aufeinander folgende Zyklen, die stehts die GLEICHE LÄNGE haben, SELTEN sind!❗️
Diese beiden wichtigen Tatsachen möchte ich mit folgenden Studienergebnissen untermauern. 📚Für diese Studie wurden 35.000 Zyklen ausgewertet: .
🦄 nur knapp 13% der Zyklen sind 28 Tage lang .
🦄 nur kanapp 3% der Frauen haben extrem regelmäßige Zyklen von 1-3 Tagen Unterschied .
🦄 bei 58% der Frauen varrieren die Zyklen zwischen 8 und mehr Tagen (die Mehrheit!) .
Ist das nicht spannend? Also ich fand es total spannend🙊😅
Nun zu dir:💚
War dir das schon vorher klar oder ist das neu? Sind diese Informationen hilfreich? Markiere eine Freundin, wenn du denkst, dass diese Info interessant für sie wäre.

Crostoni con broccoli, mozzarella e semi di girasole
Un pranzo completo, semplice e soddisfacente!
Il pane è di Grani antichi (Verna), buonissimo... Si trova facilmente al supermercato.
I broccoli sono di stagione, e (come tutte le verdure a foglia verde) sono una vera miniera di vitamine e minerali funzionali per tantissimi processi del nostro organismo.
I semi li ho aggiunti perché sto facendo il #seedcycling (quelli di sesamo li ho mangiati a colazione). Spesso consiglio i semi alle mie pazienti, possono essere aggiunti in tante preparazioni anche solo per dare una consistenza diversa.
La mozzarella fornisce la fonte proteica che completa il pasto.
Il tutto "annaffiato" da olio EVO.. che non ha bisogno di presentazioni!

Do you ever make plans when you’re feeling super outgoing and social and then when you get to the day you just want to stay home?⠀
Do you find yourself wanting salads and light meals one week and then stodgy food the next?⠀
Are there times where you love working out and feel unbelievably strong and energetic but then a week later you just want to stay home on the couch?⠀
If any of these have happened you might want to look into cycle syncing. Our cycles hold amazing wisdom into what we need but most of us don’t even know what cycle syncing is.⠀
If you’d like to learn more about this amazing insight, reach out and I’ll share my favourite resources with you.⠀
Let’s stop going against ourselves and start working in sync with our cycles.⠀

Summer’s on her wayyyy 💦
I find breakfast the strangest meal of the day. Either I’m not quite hungry or I don’t want something cold and sweet, but also find making a savoury breakfast takes longer.
Sometimes a quick halfa’ Papaya and I’m done. Easy, frickin’ delicious and healthy.
What’s your go to?
When you can no longer justify spending $16 on your favorite lunch salad, so you go into the kitchen and figure out how to make it yourself. Roasted parsnip, carrot, fennel, leek, pine nuts, butter lettuce, arugula and lemon honey vinaigrette. #seedcycling
Seed cycling? What the heck is that?
You might’ve heard about this buzzy term. Seed cycling is a method of matching certain seeds in our diet with the stages of our monthly cycle to help balance our hormones naturally🍃:
1️⃣Follicular Phase (days 1-14): Flax seeds and pumpkin seeds
2️⃣Luteal Phase (Days 15-28): Sunflower seeds and sesame seeds
The key is to eat approximately 2 tbsp of the above seeds depending on the phase of your cycle. After doing this for a full cycle, you may start to see improvements, but to maximize results, you can continue to make this a daily habit for as long as possible👏🏼 Do you practice seed cycling? #thetmbmovement

SEED CYCLING...what is it? A natural way to balance your hormones during the different menstrual phases. 🌱
Seed Cycling can help to reduce PMS symptoms like pains, acne & headaches. Balancing your hormones is also the best way to treat PCOS and endometriosis. All from a little seed!😍
WHICH SEEDS DO WE NEED??
I'm in the first half of my monthly cycle which means LOTS of flax & pumpkin seeds. 🎃Flax seeds are high in Omega 3s and lignans (which help reduce estrogen) while Pumpkin seeds support fertility and immune system function. For the second half, bringing sesame and sunflower seeds🌻 into your recipes will do the trick. IIN posted a really helpful article about seed cycling, I've put it in the comments below.⬇️ Oh and yes, send me a DM for this ridiculously simple & delicious roasted pumpkin seed recipe.🤗

Sweet potato hash hit the spot for me this morning!
Eggs are a great source for choline, which is a water-based essential nutrient that supports energy and brain function, as well as keeping the metabolism active. Vegans can also get choline from plant sources like spinach and other cruciferous vegetables, legumes like garbanzo beans, and some nuts and seeds.
Cinnamon helps regulate blood sugar and strengthens the Kidney Meridian in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Always use Ceylon versus Cassia cinnamon to avoid excess heavy metals like coumarin or lead.
Sweet Potatoes are packed with vitamins. They have no fat, relatively low sodium, and fewer calories than white potatoes.
Sweet Potatoes are high in:
Vitamin A (Beta-Carotene)
Vitamin B1 - Thiamin
Vitamin B2 - Riboflavin
Vitamin B3 - Niacin
THIS COULD CHANGE A LIFE. 📢
Be honest, how often are you thinking about your blood sugar? 🤔 Are you worried about how high or low it is all day? Are you constantly in search of healthy snacks to keep it balanced? 🍎 Do you wake up in the middle of the night just to eat, even though you’re not hungry? Have you ever had to walk out of a workout to get in quick sugars because you’ve dropped too low? 👎 For a lot of us, the answer is no. But for millions of Americans, this is a daily routine. And millions more of us are living with prediabetes, but are completely unaware of it. 🤯 The good news is… Superseed Life products are helping - big time! •
November is Diabetes Awareness Month, and in support of treatment for this disease, we want to share all about how Superseed Life can replace carbs and help level blood sugar in an amazing way… we’re talking about staying in range up to 97%! 🙌 Experts @whitnessnutrition and @typeoneday have tested the effects of eating Superseed on blood sugar and shared the results with us— they’re incredible! Make sure to check out our blog this week and Whitney’s stories archived above. ⬆️ And if you know if anyone living with diabetes, do them a huge favor and tell them about the blood sugar balancing snacks from Superseed Life! 🤜🤛 We love you! •

Here's an example of an #antiinflammatory#noaddedsugar breakfast. Green tea fights inflammation in the brain, and my "cereal" is walnuts, sunflower seeds, white and black sesame seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, blackberries, blueberries and strawberries topped with #Oatly low fat oat milk. I'm also #seedcycling which is so easy -- basically adding in sunflower seeds and sesame seeds during this part of my cycle.
Ok, so why am I eating this? Well, we have an enormous amount of sheet cake left from our girls' bday party this past wknd 🎈, and the littlest 👧 woke us up 4 times last night (thank you #daylightsavings 🙎♀️🥱). The hubs + I had a date night last (tks to our big girl's Pre-K), and I drank 2 glasses of 🍷 whilst eating tons of food + drinking lots of water... BUT, even w food and lots of hydration, my head is POUNDING this morning. I feel like I spent the whole night at the club.🕺SO, that cake looks pretty enticing this morning for quick energy!
BUT, here's the GREAT part, I'm finally slowing down, tuning in and learning the effects of different things I consume. So long story short, I know to avoid that cake and get some actual #nutrition and #antiinflammation going in my body to start my day. .
I rarely drink alcohol, but I've been eating too much sugar lately, and I've been paying the price.
If this sounds like you too, feel free to join me on a 3-day #noalcohol#lowercarb#norefinedsugar challenge. 😁 I'll continue posting what I eat through this personal challenge! Cheers to your health! 🍵✨

What’s in the jar, Allyson?
I’m so glad you asked. They are a combination of various seeds, more specifically, pumpkin, flax, chia, and hemp seed. I have been following the @minimalistbaker for some time. When she first mentioned seed cycling, I was intrigued. The premise is simple; consuming seeds during a specific time in your cycle support healthy levels of estrogen and progesterone production. Since Taner has been born, my cycle has changed and not for the better. I feel at this point, I don’t have anything to lose. I am going to be giving it a go until spring to see if I notice a change. I know this isn’t an overnight thing. Even if don’t see a chance in my cycle, I am still supporting my body with a healthy source of protein, fibers, and healthy fat (omega 3). Bottoms up!

Create balance in your body naturally, simply by adding raw seeds to your diet🌱
Eating a combination of seeds during your natural period cycle or following the moon ( if your cycle is inconsistent or nonexistent) can help bring this balance
Seed Cycling is a popular way to promote estrogen in the first half of the cycle and progesterone in the second half of the cycle. .
Ladies in Phase 1 & 2: Add 1 Tbs each of ground Flax seeds & Pumpkin seeds .
Flax and pumpkin seeds contains high amounts of lignans and zinc, and are typically the best foods to include in the diet to try to boost estrogen or relieve symptoms of estrogen deficiency.
For example, In studies, a dose of 30 grams (4 Tbsp) of flax per day has been shown to be effective for hot flashes. The seeds must be ground, and can be mixed into smoothies, sprinkled on food (such as salads), added to soups, etc. .
Ladies in Phase 3 & 4: Add 1 Tbs each of ground Sesame seeds & Sunflower seeds .
Sesame seeds (high in zinc) and sunflower seeds (high in vitamin E) help with progesterone production during the second half of the cycle. Low progesterone relative to your estrogen levels leads to lots of unwanted symptoms such as breast tenderness, painful periods, acne, weight gain, hot flashes and more. .
Not to mention that progesterone is incredible calming to our brain and we feel much better with adequate amounts. .

“The Earth is the Body -
our bodies are reflections
of the Earth.
In the Earth are all the body parts
which give our body their power.
All body parts are Relationship,
connected by energy meridians
through which flows the life force,
the weave of Creation,
of which we are reflections.
The Earths body gives our bodies
The Earth is Mother,
gestating, birthing, renewing life.
The Pattern of Earth is Father,
giving Law and structure to life.”
“We and Earth are woven together,
Belonging to each other,
Reflections, energetically connected.”
a beautiful little snippet from the “Creation” story from “Men’s Business, Women’s Business” by Hannah Rachel Bell.
From birth we feel this, we know this and we commune with this knowing. We know our place in the totality of life, not through the mind or intellect but through our deepest, inner most Self.
Born into this magnificent body we are. One microcosm of a “human”, made up of a multitude of intricate cycles, all working together internally for the greater good of one another, and externally in constant communion with the laws of Mother Earth. Gestating and nurturing us for the greater good of the whole Earth... and universe...
...somewhere along this journey... this knowing was lost... and we were constantly taught otherwise...
Yet, when we come back to this knowing, we are reminded of nature’s power to heal us. To heal us not because we are “broken” but simple to heal us from that time in our life when we had forgotten her power. Through Nature we are born, through nature we reside and flourish, and through Nature we shall return.
Nourish your knowing, nourish your Self and nourish Mother Earth.

Seed cycling is one of my (Dr. Amy Dobbie ND) favourite food-based ways to balance hormones! It's great for anyone with irregular cycles or who experiencing hormonal or PMS symptoms through different phases of their cycle.
What is it? A rotation of seeds consumed during different phases of your cycle to help support hormone balance. In the follicular phase (Period Day 1 until Ovulation), ground flax and pumpkin seeds are used to support estrogen. In the luteal phase (Ovulation-Period), sesame and sunflower seeds are used to support progesterone.
As a bonus - these seeds are all full of healthy fats and fiber, which are great for hormone balance too!

I’ve definitely had moments when I first started learning about nutrition where I truly believed if everyone knew the same information, they’d make changes to their lifestyle.
Boy was I wrong!
I used to get so frustrated, and even angry, when I saw people complaining about their health and yet make absolutely no changes to better their situation.
Honestly, it still rubs me the wrong way.
And yet there I was, a nutrition student, raging inside from imbalanced hormones, hitting up the drive thru every night.
Maybe a little hypocritical.
I’ve learned over time that you can hear something over and over and over again, and until it hits you the right way, or until you’re in a certain situation where you can understand it properly, nothing will change.
I can talk to you about connecting with yourself until kingdom comes but if you don’t have the space to receive it, it won’t penetrate.
This is why I keep doing it anyway.
Because I know one day something I’ve said a hundred times will hit you differently, and there will be a shift in mindset.
And really, that shift in mindset is an incredibly powerful catalyst for change.
Until then, I’m going to keep loving you.
I’m going to keep attempting to teach you.
And maybe I’m not for you.
Maybe you’ll hear it from someone else, and that’s what you’ll need.
And that’s absolutely perfect!
Because if you can get to a place of peace with yourself, you body, your health.

All about seed cycling! I've been doing it for over 10 months now and it has literally changed the game for me. After 10 years of not getting my period and my hormones being all out of whack, I'm happy to say that I've had a period for 8 months in a row! And as time goes on, my cycle has gotten better and better. I attribute this to the diet and lifestyles changes I've made and seed cycling.⠀
This post explains everything you need to know about seed cycling - what it is, how it works, what seeds to use, the benefits, ways to incorporate seeds, and more. It is pretty much and amazing natural and inexpensive way to balance your hormones and have a healthy menstrual cycle. To break it down:⠀
days 1-14 – eat one tablespoon each of pumpkin and flax seeds, freshly ground⠀
days 15-28 – eat one tablespoon each of sesame and sunflower seeds, freshly ground⠀
I asked you guys what you wanted to know about it and I hope I answered all your questions in the post. If not, let me know! And if you have/are seed cycling, what benefits have you seen from it?!⠀

Seed cycling is a naturopathic remedy that claims to balance hormones during your menstrual cycle through THE POWER OF SEEDS.
I hope by the use of capital letters you’ve registered the sarcasm and guessed what I’m about to say.
If you look in the medical literature, there are no published studies comparing seed cycling with any kind of control, or looking at alterations in hormone levels when using the variation of seeds. Zero. Nada. Zilch. Interesting that. I wonder why that is.
Now before someone goes off at one in the comments that the studies haven’t been done because doctors want to prescribe more pills and big pharma are hiding the truth... I don’t validate conspiracy theories on here.
Until the evidence exists, scientific logic states we must default to assuming placebo and confirmation bias as to why people claim (anecdotally) that seed cycling works. I know that some people aren’t going to be happy with me saying that, and it can appear frustrating at times, but it’s very important that we stick to it. The burden of proof is paramount.
Now does that mean you can’t try it? Absolutely not. If you’re privileged enough to buy different seeds and only eat them at certain times of the month, you are perfectly within your rights to do so. However, always remember what Occam’s Barber says:
“You are completely entitled to opinions that are not supported by evidence, but the moment you spread said opinion as fact you become a liar. If you continue to do so after knowing it’s not supported by evidence, you become both a liar and a fraud.”
To finish, reductionist nutrition is never a good idea, and food isn’t medicine. Love you all.
SEED CYCLING is one of the methods of resetting the hormones by consuming certain seeds according to the phase of menstrual cycle you’re currently in. Our body produces hormones corresponding to the stage of menstrual cycle. The specific micronutrients in the seeds and their fat profile helps to nourish the body and provide minerals that are required to produce particular hormones as per the phase. This is how seed cycling aids in release of the right hormones, at the right stage of the cycle and in the right amounts.
Once the hormones are balanced, a lot of issues like PMS, infertility, absence of your period, peri-menopausal symptoms resolve. Seed cycling also plays a very important role in healing conditions like PCOS, ovarian cysts and endometriosis.
Our menstrual cycle has 2 phases and traditionally each phase was of 14 days making it a 28 days cycle. However, now our cycle could range from 21 to 35 days.
Day 1-14 (starting from menses)
- Flax seeds
- Pumpkin seeds
Rules of seed cycling:
1. Have 2 Tbsp of the mixture of seeds everyday.
2. The seeds should be unroasted, unsalted and freshly ground.
3. Store the seeds in dark and cool environment as the essential fat can get oxidised.
4. Seeds can be consumed as it is or mixed in smoothie, salad, soup or breakfast cereal.
I’m going to try my best to get some recipes developed for me. I’m going to start seed cycling for myself soon. I use to have endometriosis and I’m always trying to find ways to keep my hormones balanced to avoid a relapse. Hope this will help you guys too :) #nutritionistdubai#nutritionistmumbai#seedcycling

Já foi dito aqui que as sementes tem um grande poder de melhorar a fertilidade segundo a medicina chinesa pois tonificam o Rim
A semente de abóbora, conhecida como Nán Guā Zǐ (南瓜子) e pumpkin seed, tem uma característica quente, doce e faz parte das ervas que expelem parasitas, podendo ser utilizadas para o tratamento de alguns vermes intestinais. Age principalmente nos meridianos do Estômago e do Intestino Grosso. Como tem característica quente, ajuda no tratamento do frio do corpo (útero receptivo é útero quente, lembram?). Também ajudam a tonificar o Qi (energia) e o sangue ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
É rica em aminoácidos, vitaminas, carotenóides, gordura insaturada e outros nutrientes. Contém também fósforo e pode auxiliar na prevenção da osteoporose. Estudos mostram uma melhora da hiperplasia da próstata por fito hormônios que dificultam a transformação da testosterona em di-hidrotestosterona. Pode ser usada também na enurese noturna, estímulo da produção de leite materno e para a melhora do inchaço ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Além disso, seu outro componente, o zinco, pode ajudar na melhora da morfologia dos espermatozóides no homem, e na mulher, ajudar na regulação do ciclo menstrual. Alguns autores recomendam o seu uso apenas na fase folicular (motivo de outro post), uma a duas colheres de sopa por dia, junto com a chia e a linhaça. Mas, do ponto de vista prático, indico o seu consumo durante todo o ciclo, principalmente durante a fertilização in vitro ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bora comer a semente de abóbora 🎃😉

I know, blood sugar isn't sexy. 🙄 And it isn't a "magic pill" of any kind. When I talk to patients about how to balance their hormones naturally, we always discuss blood sugar & insulin.
Article on Balancing Blood Sugar for Better Hormones in my profile link👆.
Insulin is a hormone that helps your cells take in the sugar (glucose) they need. Insulin is an important hormone for so many reasons, but just like every hormone, excess can be an issue.
In women with PCOS (and PCOS only), insulin stimulates the ovaries to make a lot of testosterone (androgen), which leads to hair growth where you don't want it and hair loss on your head. Plus, some cystic acne, oily skin, and missing periods.
In non-PCOS women, blood sugar dysregulation & insulin resistance can be at the root of HPA dysfunction (commonly referred to by patients as adrenal fatigue), anxiety, hot flashes, headaches, and fertility struggles. BTW, all of this can happen in women with #PCOS too.
How do you know if you have a blood sugar issue? You test! Go back and read my post on insulin in PCOS women to see the list of labs.
How do you structure meals to avoid blood sugar spikes? See my article in my bio @drjolenebrighten because there is only so much I can fit in an IG post!
Aim to eat fat, protein and fiber at every meal. If you're struggling to find plant based proteins, see my last IG post on this.
Healthy fats help build healthy hormones. These include:
✨Cold pressed olive oil
✨Avocado oil or whole avocado
✨Macadamia nut oil
✨Grass fed butter
✨Grass fed ghee
✨Seeds (see my #seedcycling articles on www.drbrighten.com)

Such a great summary of all the little things... That add up to give big relief.
And no one dose of fish oil doesn't help... Nor does 1 glass of water.... It's doing these small things consistently!
Now I will also say.. Doing these consistently will also help you feel more in control of your pain and cravings! And as we just discussed in my last post the period wins way to much.
