Seed Cycling Reviews
“Bia helped my period come back after months of amenorrhoea!!”
"The itchy skin that I've had on and off for the past 10 years, which tends to flare up in my luteal phase (which I put down to a progesterone sensitivity), has been non-existent since I started seed cycling. I'm keen to keep going, especially through autumn and winter, as these are the drier months that can make it worse."
"Thinking of seed cycling ? - It’s much easier to use Bia”
"I have always experienced a very strong negative emotion a day or two after ovulation, during the switch between the yang and yin part of our cycles, but this one last month, was barely noticeable. So that was super interesting!"
"I experienced an overall sense of calm.
It's subtle, and may be to do with other changes I've made in my life too around this time, but it has certainly been noticeable."
I have always suffered with very heavy and painful periods to the point where I cannot leave home for the first two days. They are always regular on a 28 day cycle. In May, I did not have a period for 5 weeks and was recommended seed cycling. After 1 week of regularly adding seed to my porridge my period came. Although it was still heavy, I experienced significantly less pain and it seem to kick start my cycle. I also have more energy
The Bia box is super convenient as I didn't have to think at all about what I needed and was excited to receive my box each month :) I love that it's organic, and I bought a small grinder to get the most from the seeds. My first period after starting the cycling was very cleansing, and my periods became much cleaner and less painful after that. I am not sure if it's positively affected my moods yet - I often have a lot of other things going on which can influence mood!
With Bia, seed cycling is easy to get started. Firstly, check where you are in your cycle. If you are currently on your period or are yet to ovulate (days 1 to 14) begin with the Follicular blend. If you are ovulating or and in the window leading up to your period (day 15 onwards) start with the Luteal blend. Once you have established which blend to start with, ground 1 to 2 tablespoons worth of the seeds and consume daily until you enter the next cycle phase and then switch your blend.
It is often completely normal and even healthy for a cycle to be shorter or longer than the considered "normal cycle length" of 28 days. We are working on customising our boxes for people with longer cycles and hope to add this feature by the end of the year. Thank you in advance for your patience - we see you and your cycle is beautiful no matter it's length!
In order to help your body properly absorb the nutrients you should grind your seeds. It makes them easier to digest so you don’t pass them.
