Seed Cycling for Fertility and Hormone Balancing

Diet - Seed Cycling

Seed cycling is a fantastic addition to the diet to help increase fertility.  According to Chinese Medicine Food Therapy seeds can help balance the menstrual cycle, hormones and the reproductive system.​

Flax and sesame seeds can help block excess estrogen, which is important for ovulation!

Sunflower seeds are high in selenium for liver detoxification.  We need a clean liver to have balanced hormones!

Pumpkin seeds supports progesterone release​!

Acupuncture is a safe effective and natural way to successfully turn breech babies

Acupuncture is a safe effective and natural way to successfully turn breech babies

Clinical studies have shown that acupuncture can be successful in turning breech babies to their optimal position for birth using the Traditional Chinese Medicine technique moxibustion or more commonly called ‘moxa’.

The optimum time for turning a breech baby with moxa is at 34 weeks in your pregnancy, this is when it is most efficient but moxa may be effective as late as 38 or 39 weeks in your pregnancy.
