Here is another recipe using simple seeds to be enjoyed for its healing medicinal qualities.

Seed Rotation can be used by anyone experiencing symptoms of estrogen dominance (can be menopausal women, too)

Here is the key idea: Seed rotation can be used to boost estrogen levels in the first part of your cycle (called the follicular phase) and progesterone levels in the second part (called the luteal phase).

Women in perimenopause and menopause will also benefit from this method.

Alternate using the luteal seeds (sesame and sunflower) and the follicular seeds (pumpkin and flax) depending on where you are in your cycle.
