Seed cycling is an all-natural eating cycle that promotes menstrual health, hormone production and reduces symptoms commonly associated with periods and menstrual disorders. Not only can it help with your cycle, but it can also improve your mental health and day to day life, making it a great practice to implement into your life if you are looking for more balance and clarity.
While it’s completely normal and natural to experience PMS such as cramps, mood swings and hormonal acne, these symptoms can be extreme for those suffering from Endometriosis, PCOS or Ovarian Cysts. Menstrual cycles can also affect your mental health as well, leading to anxiety and depression in many women across the globe. Even those suffering from irregular (or absent) periods and infertility can benefit from this hormone-balancing practice as well.
To get started seed cycling, begin on the first day of your cycle (during your follicular phase). If you don’t have a consistent cycle or if you are trying to bring back an absent cycle, it’s suggested to seed cycle according to the phases of the moon to get your hormones on a new and consistent schedule. The team at Snap Kitchen put together this handy guide that covers everything you need to know about seed cycling, who it is best suited for, and other healthy practices you can implement into your life to help boost and balance your hormones.
