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​!

New Beginnings for Women’s Acupuncture in Bundaberg

Nurture Acupuncture Sign

I opened Nurture Acupuncture in Bundaberg officially on the 1st of July 2015. 

Most appropriately our sign is located next to Embrace Midwifery which is where we are located.

​I look forward to working with the women of Bundaberg who are seeking a natural and effective approach to the treatments for pregnancy related conditions, natural fertility, women's health, cosmetic acupuncture and general health and wellbeing.
