Do you ever feel like your hormones are constantly wreaking havoc on your body? Kind of like a bull in a china shop, breaking everything in sight, right? You’re not alone in feeling this way, so let’s talk about how you can use at-home self-care tools like your Castor Oil Pack for Fertility and seed cycling to naturally balance your hormones. Are you ready?
First thing’s first: Do you feel like your hormones are completely out of whack because…
- You have irregular periods
- You have PCOS, endometriosis, or maybe it’s uterine fibroids.
- You have no idea when your estrogen spikes and drops.
- You feel disconnected from your body because your monthly cycle is all over the place. Do any of these sound like you?
Well, if you relate to one or all of the above, you’re in the right place because I’m here to tell you the top 3 reasons why Castor Oil Packs for Fertility and seed cycling can support irregular periods and hormone imbalance.
1. How can Castor Oil Packs calm period pain and inflammation?
Do you find yourself dreading your period because you know that your inevitable cramps that have you doubled over in pain are on their way, right?
Worse than that, you can feel your uterus filling up with inflammation. Kind of like a forest fire that starts out as just a spark but grows into a raging fire that needs gallons and gallons of water to stop it.
Well, would you love to know how Castor Oil Pack for Fertility can be your fire hose so you can reduce inflammation and pain before, during and after your period? Do you feel like this is too good to be true? It’s ok, stay with me here.*
You see, because Castor Oil is a natural anti-inflammatory¹, when you pair that with your cozy pelvic pack compress, it’s kind of like a weighted blanket for all of your reproductive organs so you can naturally relax and reduce inflammation. Sounds amazing, right? .
But maybe you feel like inflammation is a normal part of your day to day because you have endometriosis, PCOS, or uterine fibroids, can you relate?
Well, kind of like how an ice pack reduces swelling and inflammation when you have an injury, your Castor Oil Pack for Fertility is your new way to reduce the pain you get from inflammation, but without the cold!
The best part? It’s like a gentle massage for your abdomen and pelvis so your body can naturally relax when your hormones are causing a raging storm inside your body. Oh, you can also wrap it around your lower back if you have hip and back pain. Or wear it over your breasts to support lymphatic flow. Amazing, agreed?!
