Can I used Seed Cycle Blend on the pill?
You can use Seed Cycle Blend on the pill and gain micro and macro nutrients. However, Seed cycling's effectiveness comes from taking nutrients at different times of hormonal fluctuations. When you are on the pill your hormones do not fluctuate - to reduce fertility.
There is a lot of nutritional value in the seeds, It just may be harder to track your cycle and therefore your results from Seed Cycling.
What if I'm pregnant or breastfeeding?
You can consume both packs at the same time instead of alternating them. Mix both packs together in a jar/container (stored in the fridge) and take 2 TBSP of the blend each day during pregnancy and breastfeeding until your period returns.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding hormones fluctuate differently to menstrual hormones. In pregnancy the nutrients in these blends will support the healthy development of the fetus and stock-pile your own nutrients after birth when you are normally heavily depleted. In breastfeeding these nutrient dense blends will provide a healthy dose of essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.
It’s important to consult with your natural practitioner to understand other nutrients that directly support pregnancy and breastfeeding hormones.
When will I start seeing results?
Some people can start noticing a difference in the first month. Others can take up to 3 cycles to notice changes. It's completely dependant on each person's body, sensitivity and medical history.
Bottom line - we're in it for the long haul baby! And that means being patient as your body adjusts and integrates the regular nutrients.
We recommend consulting with a naturopath or natural health practitioner for professional advice.
When do I start?
Start with FOL blend on day 1 of cycle signified by your first full day of bleeding (your period) until ovulation (or approximately day 14 of your cycle) or start with LUT blend from ovulation until day 1 of your period.
How do I track my cycle?
There are many different cycle tracking apps out there - but the most effective way to accurately track your cycle is by using the sympto-thermal method. More information on this here. You would need to record your temperature every morning on waking - if this is a difficult habit to maintain we recommend using the Tempdrop arm band.
A tracking app like Kindara can help to record this temperature and other details like your cervical mucus. It will generate a chart to help you understand what is happening with your cycle.
What if I have irregular periods?
There are many reasons for period irregularity in women who are not on hormonal contraception. In the first instance we advise consulting with a naturopath or natural health practitioner.
If seed cycling is prescribed as one of the therapies, then we recommend starting to use Seed Cycle Blend with the moon or estimate how many days your cycle is, divide it in half and switch blends in the middle. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on this.
