What Is Seed Cycling (and Will It Help My PMS)?
Alisa Vitti is a holistic health coach and a best-selling author of WomanCode. She helps her menstrual cycle with a hormone-balance technique called “seed cycling.” This is simply eating different types of seeds during the different phases of your menstrual cycle. During the beginning of your cycle, your body needs more estrogen. Flax seeds and pumpkin seeds would be ideal to consume. The second half of your period, your body needs more progesterone. Eating a tablespoon of raw ground sesame or sunflower seeds would be best.
- As there are many different diets for a woman, this one is much more unique than others.
- Contrary to belief, there are many seeds out there that have excellent health benefits.
- Woman need to eat the things that work for them and they are the only ones who can decide that.
