What is Seed Cycling?

What is Seed Cycling and Why Should You Do it? How Do You "Seed Cycle?" Seed cycling is when you rotate different types of seeds in your diet to align with the part of your menstrual cycle you are in. In the first half of your cycle you consume seeds which contribute to estrogen production and in the second half of your cycle you consume seeds which are naturally more progesterone producing in the body. Follicular Phase (Days 1-14) Starting on Day 1 of your period add 2 tablespoons of raw ground flax seeds or pumpkin seeds to your diet. You can add them into a smoothie, top your oatmeal, or add them to your salad. Everyday until ovulation, you’ll have 2 tablespoons of raw ground flax seeds or pumpkin seeds.

If you don’t get a regular period or you haven’t been getting a period, start seed cycling on the first day of the full moon an

17 Date Nights to Spice Things Up in the Bedroom Things could be steamier in the bedroom, ay? Would you believe me if I told you that I get asked about sex  all. the. time.  From young women who are trying to break through their limiting beliefs about sex to women who are trying to relight the spark after having a baby and sometimes it's moms who are raising multiple kids, being a supportive partner, and haven't had sex in years.  *moment of silence for all the lost orgasms, take as long as you need, tissues are to the right* Sex is so important. From an emotional standpoint, to a biological standpoint, to a mental health standpoint, and a physical standpoint. SEX IS IMPORTANT. Even more important is raising sexually responsible and sex positive tiny humans, but that's another story for another day.

Making Peace with the Pain of Labor and Birth

Can You Really  Control Pain During Labor and Delivery? The way one woman births is completely different than any other woman. Even deeper, the way one woman wants to birth is unlike any other, as well. Women will each have their own specific way that they picture their birth going. I challenge you to imagine your ideal birth. I take my clients down specific path ways to explore this side of themselves. So many things will impact the way you feel most comfortable birthing and I believe that one of those things --and a very big one-- is your relationship with pain.
