Has anyone heard of this? It was just recently brought to my attention. The theory is for 14 days you have 1 tbsp seeds high in omega 3 (pumpkin, flax...) and then the remainder of your cycle you have seeds high in omega 6(sunflower...). Apparently it takes 3 months to notice a difference. I thought I would try it since it's stuff I already have. I wanted to see if anyone has heard of or had any experience with this? Thank you in advance for your thoughts, suggestions, and wisdom on experience.
You could try it however there is much evidence that the body has a lot of trouble converting plant based omega 3's like flax to the real thing in the body. Fish oils provide the body with a much easier source of omega 3. (we like cod liver oils for that purpose). But... I'd be interested in your results.
I already use cod liver oil on a regular basis. And I really don't know a lot about seed cycling. It was just brought to my attention last week. I'm waiting to get in to see my dr and then the right timing in my cycle to get the blood work done for my hormone tests. I had an appointment scheduled last week (which would have been perfect timing blood work) but they moved it until the end of this week. Although I was just thinking Pearl... if my cycle is quite long (37-47 days) then would that mean I should be testing later in my cycle then 18-21 days or what ever the timing was you had in the book? I started ovulating yesterday and I'm on day 27. Do you think that makes a difference? Just a thought.

mandy140: I have a question about Whey Protein Powder. I read Serene's article on Whey, friend or foe? I checked Swanson's web site and there are so many Whey Powders there I can't find the one Serene recommended; the CFM. How do I know which it is? Thanks.

farmerblacks: I did THM for a few months and loved it. I got away from it when I had to have 2 surgeries in 6 weeks. I would like to get back to it, but now my husband has to be on a low sodium diet. Are there any THM families that also do low sodium?
