Before the invention of artificial light, women’s periods were linked with the lunar cycle. That’s why an “ideal” menstrual cycle is 28 days, corresponding to the rhythms of the moon.
Today, it is not uncommon for women to experience irregular cycles. Not only has artificial light thrown off our circadian rhythm, but environmental toxins and the stressors of modern life make it challenging to know when to expect your period, plan for pregnancy, and even follow the Seed Syncing protocol.
But just because an irregular cycle is common, doesn’t mean that it’s normal. In fact, having a regular, balanced cycle- without extreme symptoms or pain- is the best non-invasive, natural indicator of a woman’s internal health. And incorporating our Moon Bites into your daily routine can help to improve cycle regularity and calm unwanted period symptoms.
If you’re having an irregular cycle or your cycles are too short/long, we recommend syncing up with the lunar cycle. Start eating Phase 1 Moon Bites daily at the New Moon and then switch to Phase 2 at the Full Moon (or vice-versa). According to a study published by Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica (a peer-reviewed medical journal covering gynecology, female urology, gynecologic oncology, and fertility) 28% of women start their period around the New Moon.¹
Although following the lunar cycle may not be for everyone- it seemed a little “out-there” to us in the beginning too- it’s interesting to learn about all the links that connections humans and other mammals have to the moon. For example, more births, amongst humans, cows, and sheep, occur near the Full Moon.
