Power of Seeds
These small, but mighty seeds work together with the rhythm of your menstrual cycle through the seed syncing (seed cycling) practice. Each seed contains a micronutrient or chemical compound that delivers hormone-balancing benefits through consistent, daily consumption.
Flax seeds contain a compound called lignans, which have phytoestrogen properties that can help detoxify the body of excess hormones, often calming period symptoms like breast pain. Flax seeds are also rich in Magnesium, Zinc, and Vitamin B1.
Pumpkin seeds are full of Magnesium and Zinc. Supplementing with these micronutrients has been shown to decrease the severity and duration of PMS symptoms, in particular cramps, inflammation, and menstrual migraines.
Sunflower seeds are rich in Magnesium and Vitamin B1, which have been shown to reduce cramps and menstrual migraines. Powerhouse providers of Vitamin B6, Vitamin E, and Zinc, sunflower seeds can also help minimize mood swings and breast pain.
Sesame seeds, like flax, are lignan-rich and can help promote cycle regulation. Full of Magnesium, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B6, and Zinc, sesame seeds can help reduce painful cramping and other uncomfortable PMS symptoms.
Benefits of Balanced Hormones
After being on the pill for 15 years and then not having any bleeding for 7 months, I finally had my first natural period. As an athlete and fitness enthusiast, seed syncing makes me feel empowered. My health is in my own hands and it is beyond exciting to effectively manage symptoms naturally.
I have been off of birth control for almost 2 years. Immediately after getting off of it my hair fell out in clumps, my skin broke out, had high testosterone, low progesterone, and my libido was non-existent. Fast forward about a year, I started seed syncing, and I now see maybe 10-15 strands of hair fall out daily, I do not experience hot flashes, my skin is glowing, my libido is high and my blood test results are in the normal range again. Seed syncing is the real deal!
After being on hormonal birth control for almost 18 years, I wanted a holistic way to aid my body as I planned to transition off the Pill in July 2018.
It’s been four months since I’ve been seed syncing and my new blood test result shows that my hormone levels increased significantly!
When I stopped taking hormonal birth control I stopped getting a period. I waited a few months to see if it would come back, but when it didn't, I started seed syncing in hopes it would help my period come back naturally... And after 161 days it came back!
I started using Food Period because my cycle length kept getting shorter (22 days). Seed syncing has lengthened my cycle, drastically helped my skin, and my cramps are very slight (only on the first day of my period). I barely notice my period these days and I never thought that would happen!
