The day you start menstruating is day 1 of your cycle. This is the first day of the follicular phase. The follicular phase continues on until the day you ovulate. Once ovulation occurs it is called the luteal phase. The luteal phase continues until the first day of bleeding, and then the whole cycle starts again!

Most women do not have 28 day cycles. Let ovulation and bleeding be your guides of when to switch from one seed combo to the next. 

If you have low progesterone, heavy periods, painful periods, endometriosis, menstrual migraines, or hormonal acne; Seed cycling may help!

Phase 1: Follicular phase

Day 1 of your cycle until ovulation (or when the moon is FULL)

Flax seed and pumpkin seeds, 1 tbsp of each freshly ground and mixed into yogurt, oatmeal, or on a smoothie.

Phase2: Luteal Phase

Day 1 of bleeding (or when the moon GONE)

Sunflower and Sesame seeds, 1tbsp of each freshly ground and put on salads, top your warm bowl of soup, or mixed into hummus.
