Nature. Nutrition and Rhythm

Three things that I've known and acknowledged for a long time now:

  1. Nature provides.

  2. Nutrition is key when it comes to supporting your hormones

  3. I feel my best when I am in sync with the rhythms of nature: the 24 hour circadian rhythm, the rhythm and weather of the seasons and the rhythm of the planets, especially the moon. For a long time now, I've been aware of how the moon affects my physical, mental and emotional energy and since I ceased menstruating, and hence no longer experiencing my own 28-day cycle, the phases of the moon have provided the rhythm that I desire and crave.

Nutrition, nature and rhythm are exactly why I love "Seed Cycling" and if you follow me on Instagram you may have already seen a glimpse of what I'm excited about right now! So what exactly is seed cycling? To begin with, Seed Cycling is nothing new! It has been used for hundreds of years to alleviate symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance. Seed cycling supports the body's production and elimination of key female hormones using 4 of nature's superfoods: flaxseeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds. Seed Cycling has been shown to alleviate symptoms of hormonal imbalance such as:

  • Migraines (especially before your period)

  • Persistent weight gain

  • Low libido Irritability

  • Fatigue

  • Fertility problems

  • Excessive sweating

  • Trouble concentrating

  • Digestive issues (constipation, diarrhoea, bloating, cramping, pain)

  • Hot flushes associated with menopause

The concept behind seed cycling is that there are 4 key seeds that carry important oils, vitamins and minerals which can assist your body to support the production and elimination of key hormones, as well as unlock optimal hormone balance. The blends are high in vitamins and minerals such as zinc, magnesium and selenium which can help support hormonal regulation. By eating these specific see

ds in specific quantities you are nourishing your body according to what it needs at specific times of the month, whether it be during your own menstrual cycle or your cycle in accordance with the phases of the moon.

Here's how it works: Days 1-14 are referred to as the Follicular or New Moon Phase Phase 1 begins on your first day of men

struation and continues through to ovulation or begins at the time of the new moon through to the full moon Seeds consumed are flax and pumpkin seeds providing abundant Omega 3 fatty acids, magnesium, manganese, iron, selenium and zinc Days 15-28 are referred to as the Luteal or Full Moon Phase Phase 2 begins on day 15 of your cycle or at the time of the full moon Seeds consumed are sesame and sunflower seeds providing abundant vitamin E, magnesium, calcium, iron, selenium and zinc. You simply sprinkle 1 scoop of the appropriate mix over your granola or yoghurt, into your smoothie or even over your roasted veggies and consume daily. OR you can bake cookies using the seed mix and enjoy a healthy cookie each day!
