Frequently Asked Questions

We compiled a list of questions we frequently receive from our Seed Cycling customers

What is in the pouches?

Each pouch contains specific combinations of Sunflower Seeds, Sesame Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds and Flaxseeds. All of our seeds are raw & non GMO

Do the seeds have hormones in them?

Seeds do not contain hormones but are packed with the power to nourish and support your body to find hormonal balance in a gentle and effective way.

What if my cycle is not 28 days?

If you are seed cycling with your natural cycle, you may find that your cycle is longer or shorter than 28 days. It is completely normal. We pack The Seed Cycling Kit for 28 days as this is the length of both the average cycle and the full cycle of the moon. If your cycle is shorter, you will start with your new kit at pouch 1 on the first day of your cycle and set the remaining pouches, from your current kit aside. If your cycle is longer you will finish your pouches and await your next cycle. On the first day of your next cycle, you will start your new kit on pouch 1.

 

Can I seed cycle while I am on birth control or HRT?

You don’t need to go off the pill off any form of synthetic hormone therapy or birth control to seed cycle as it will not negatively affect your current medication. Although is it commonly used to support women who come off birth control or want to come off hormone replacement therapy, it can be used in conjunction. However, due to the way in which birth control works, not all of the benefits will be felt.

Birth control uses synthetic hormones to stop the communication from the brain to the ovaries and therefore stops the body’s production of certain hormones and ovulation i.e. no egg is released. The period experienced is a pill or withdrawal bleed.

The seeds we use to seed cycle do not contain hormones but rather support the natural hormone functions in the body and assist in the removal of surplus hormone waste. The benefits that you may find by seed cycling whilst on the pill are:

  •  Better detoxification of surplus estrogen and other hormones due to the increased fiber intake and iron found in sunflower seeds
  • Improved sleep and mood due to tryptophan, which the body uses to create serotonin (happy hormone) and melatonin (sleep hormone). This is found in pumpkin seeds
  • Glowing skin and better collagen production in the skin (wrinkle prevention) – sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and flax seeds
  • Increase minerals that are depleted by the pill - folic acid, vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B6, vitamin E, magnesium, selenium, and zinc
  • Thyroid support – zinc and selenium
  • Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc which supports healthy testosterone levels and are rich in antioxidants which protects your reproductive system

 How long should I Seed Cycle for?

Seed Cycling is all natural and can be part of your daily routine long term to support your body as you move through all the stages of life. There is no need to stop or take a break as it is all natural. 

Can Men Seed Cycle?

Absolutely! Men will follow the cycle of the moon but use The Seed Cycling Kit backwards (from pouch 28 to pouch 1). There are no hormones in seeds but they are full of nutrients to support the body and promote prostate health

New Moon to Full Moon - pouch 28 to pouch 15

Full Moon to New Moon - pouch 14 to pouch 1

What do I do after pouch 28?

You start again with a new The Seed Cycling Kit at pouch 1

How long will it take before I see results?

Seed Cycling is a natural approach vs a pharmaceutical one, so results and time to feel improvement is varied from person to person. Give your body some time to heal and find better balance. Usually results can be seen after three to four months with some benefits being noticed faster than others. Some clients have reported results within a few days.
