Do Castor Oil Packs help with infertility?

Whether you’re in your 30’s, 40’s or even younger Castor Oil Packs can help fertility when trying to conceive.

As a matter of fact, according to the CDC, the proportion of first births to women aged 30–34 increased by 28% from the year 2000-2014.

And first births for women aged 35 and over have increased by 23%1

So with this increase in women trying to conceive over the age of 30 paired with fertility problems, we have an even greater need for Castor Oil Pack protocols.

Would you agree?

Castor Oil Packs improve fertility & chances of getting pregnant

As women age, fertility naturally declines and statistics show that one in five women are unable to get pregnant after one year of trying.2-3

However, you can increase your chances of getting pregnant and boost your fertility naturally!

How?

Well, with the right food, lifestyle choices and the practice of Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs.

How can I balance my hormones using Castor Oil Packs?

As a Preconception Health Coach and Holistic Nutritionist, I help women and couples prepare for pregnancy.

More so, my specialty is in preparing for a healthy baby after the age of 30.

I’ve helped countless women and couples struggling with trying to conceive get pregnant naturally.

In this article, I’ll share how Castor Oil Packs can help with infertility and hormone balance.

Plus, I’ll share why I recommend removing my top 4 hormone imbalancing food choices from your diet to help when you’re trying to conceive naturally.

I’m really excited about this topic because when it’s implemented properly, it can be a game-changer for your health and fertility.

Consequently, I’ve seen this firsthand with clients in my practice, and you can too.

How to change my diet to balance hormones & boost fertility

1. Remove inflammatory-inducing industrial seed oils.

These oils were discovered in the early 1900s and have run rampant in the western food industry in the last 100 years with the advent of industrialization.

They are mainly used in all shelf-stable products as replacements for healthy fats in low-fat products.

These oils are anything but healthy or natural and wreak havoc on fertility health.

Additionally, they are processed at extremely high temperatures causing oxidization and are also mixed with solvents and chemicals to improve their smell and color for resale.

Hence, all the more reason to remove these oils from your diet to improve fertility.

Can you relate?

The industrial seed oils I recommend staying away from include:

  • Canola
  • Corn
  • Cottonseed
  • Soy, Sunflower
  • Safflower
  • Rapeseed oil

As they are inflammatory and responsible for the buildup of toxins in the body causing a hormonal imbalance, which may lead to problems when trying to conceive.

Here is why you want to apply a Castor Oil Pack practice because the high quality of the Castor Oil that enters your body is key for improving fertility and optimal nourishment. Amazing, agreed?

2. Say goodbye to gluten

You see, industrialization has resulted in a quick rise of new genetically modified grains.

So because of this, most glutenous grains in North America, such as:

  • Wheat
  • Barley
  • Rye
  • Oats

Are all now genetically modified and wreaking havoc on fertility.

With that said, our digestive tracts and immune systems don’t recognize these new grain species and thus become damaged trying to digest them. Makes sense, agreed?

This is why we have seen a sharp rise in the number of people affected by celiac disease and wheat sensitivity in recent years.

By the way, I’ve had clients completely remove gluten from their diet while applying the Castor Oil Pack Practice having had great success in helping their infertility.

Castor Oil Packs help with fertility because it regulates inflammation in the gut and therefore improves hormone balance.

3. “Sayonara” Soy!

Soy is very controversial in the nutrition field.

Likely due to the fact that for years soy has been perceived as a health-food and an ideal source of protein that:

  • Lowers cholesterol
  • Protects against cancer
  • Reduces menopausal symptoms

But, this couldn’t be further from the truth!

Soy products are hormone disruptors and can alter the menstrual cycle – not good for fertility.

Because they have an estrogenic effect on the body.

This means they produce excess estrogen, throwing off the delicate balance of hormones in your cycle leading to infertility problems.

But, did you know…Castor Oil Packs support the healthy cleansing of excess estrogen?

So, if you do include soy products in your diet, be consistent in your Castor Oil Pack practices.?

Because consistency is key when it comes to optimal health and improved fertility.

Though we do want to avoid excess estrogen exposure as much as possible to keep problems with conception away. So, my recommendation is to say “sayonara” soy!

Soy products include:

  • Tofu
  • Soy milk
  • Edamame
  • Tempeh

4. No more processed sugar!

Processed sugar is void of all nutrients and fiber, making it an infertility-inducing ‘anti-nutrient.’

Because in order for your body to process this sugar, it must use your body’s stored nutrients.

So basically, sugar is stealing essential vitamins from your body just to process and digest it, which can then lead to fertility problems.

Did you know that processed sugar is not only found in candies and sweets like sour patch kids and cookies?

It’s also hidden in “healthy” foods like:

  • Yogurt
  • Bread
  • Chicken
  • Bacon
  • Pasta sauce
  • Salad dressing and much more.

Surprising, right?

So if you need something sweet, and want to improve fertility, stick to things like fruit (not dried), raw honey and organic maple syrup with natural sugars.

Are Castor Oil Packs helpful in boosting fertility when TTC?

To get pregnant, fertility and hormones need to be balanced.

In order for hormones to be balanced, the liver needs to work optimally. Why?

Well, the liver is the body’s main detoxifying organ, performing over 560 functions known to date and works around the clock to keep you healthy.

Think of the liver as a vacuum cleaner.

When the vacuum cleaner gets clogged, it can’t clean effectively which prevents toxins from leaving the body efficiently – leading to infertility.

This can negatively impact fertility health by creating an excess amount of inflammation in the body.

Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Packs support your Liver health and boost fertility

But when Castor Oil Packs are placed on the skin to promote the healing of tissues and organs. So, we begin training the body to promote detoxification and regulate inflammation.

Just like an Olympic athlete!

And this leads to hormone balance and improved fertility health.

This is due to the main component in Castor Oil, ricinoleic acid, which increases circulation, reduces inflammation and stimulates lymphatic flow.4-5-6

Then, in turn, increases the production of lymphocytes in the liver.

Lymphocytes are white blood cells, the body’s natural disease fighters that help clear the area of toxins.

And it’s that clearing of toxins that leads to the boost in fertility we are so desperately seeking when trying to conceive. Am I right?

So, if you’re actively trying to conceive:

During the follicular phase (the first half of your cycle):

  1. On day 1 apply a Castor Oil Pack for the Liver
  2. On day 2 apply a Castor Oil Pack for Fertility
  3. Repeat until ovulation – then stop during the luteal phase (the second stage of your cycle) to allow for that ever-so-wonderful nesting stage in hopes of conception.

Would you love that?

Note: You can also use Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs after unsuccessful fertility treatment as this practice will help detox your liver from those excess hormones.

Fertility and pregnancy using Castor Oil Packs. Is there hope?

If your goal is to get pregnant, I assure you that your body will be in a much better state of fertility for that to happen once you follow these natural health practices.

Using Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs to support the body in balancing hormones and boosting fertility helps make a difference in overall health.

And that is hope, agreed?

Why Men Need to Cleanse and Detox While They Sleep

It’s that time of year again, my friend. When we start our search for a quick and easy cleanse and detox practice so we can look good now and feel better after a long winter of lack, right?

Lack of sun, lack of energy & balance, lack of exercise, lack of a healthy diet…the list goes on, agreed?

One thing we certainly aren’t lacking is a build-up of stress and toxins (also known as ‘garbage’), and the discomforts of possible leaky gut symptoms we experience because of them, wouldn’t you agree?

Then what happens? Well, you start to feel like your body is backed up with all that ‘garbage’. Kind of like a house that never gets visited by the weekly garbage truck. Can you see it?

Cleansing and Detoxing your body is easier with Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Packs

Your easy way to cleanse & detox to boost energy levels

And, for most people, the idea of cleansing and detoxing is crunching on carrot sticks, while almost drowning yourself in 8 cups of water all day and then joining a hot yoga class twice a week after work. And this alone is a deterrent to the thought of even attempting a cleanse, especially for men. Would you agree?

Because, let’s face it, after working in a mentally and physically demanding environment all day, the last thing he wants to do is anything at the end of it.

Even though he would LOVE to feel good with an energy boost from a balanced production of hormones such as testosterone, to start his car rebuild in the garage or finish drywalling the basement, or even for a romantic night out on the town with his partner, he just can’t find the energy.

With the months of fighting with heartburn that feels like fire is going to barrel up your throat like a rocket launcher, to the weeks of constipation that feels like a football is lodged in your large intestine, on top of having to be mentally and physically present every day, how can the idea of anything else be of interest anyway?

Not to mention hobbies and date nights become just another task that is put off over and over again

Cleanse and Detox While You Sleep

Discover how to Reduce Stress and Inflammation with Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Packs

So, how can we as health care practitioners help with improving energy, balance hormones, regulate gut inflammation and address those uncomfortable, energy-draining symptoms from the overburden of toxin accumulation from those long winter months?

With the Queen of the Thrones® Day & Night Detox Kit!

A simple and easy-to-use tool kit to improve hormonal balance and optimize overall health and well-being.

And to restore balance in his day-night cycle by regulating the inflammation in the gut while you or your partner sleeps…it just doesn’t get any easier!

This is a super important step in a detox process, especially for men, to ensure optimal production of his testosterone levels while he sleeps, which will have him waking with that burst of energy he needs to seize the day!

You know the feeling, right? Instead of waking in a sluggish, foggy state, you wake up before your alarm and jump out of bed ready to knock off the list of “to-do’s” that you have been wanting to get done for so long with gusto!

The reality is that without optimal functioning of our clogged-up cleansing and detoxing organs, we tend to wake feeling tired and sluggish more often than not. Would you agree?

Liver detox with lifestyle changes & Castor Oil

(Not Castrol ‘Motor’ Oil!)

So, here is when we begin the practice of cleansing and detoxing. In the morning, on waking, with the dry brushing tool.

Priming our engine with dry brushing in the morning stimulates circulation and influences that healthy flow, rhythm and harmony that our body is so much in need of.

Without this priming, we tend to experience some lag when we hit the gas in the morning, instead of that thrust of pick up and go!

Next, we want to hit the kitchen, where the beet juice is, to begin the day with gut-healing nourishment.

Because nitric acid, the powerful component in beet juice, acts as a healing performance accelerator in the regulation of inflammation in the gut by increasing circulation1, which leads to reducing & removing those fiery symptoms of leaky gut.

Queen of the Thrones Beet Juice Recipe supports circulation and reduce inflammation

Then, in the evening, apply the Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Pack to your liver region where the Castor Oil can begin the process of regulating inflammation2, while the pack brings a wonderful and calming effect on your nervous system by promoting the “feel good” hormones3:

  • Dopamine – our motivator
  • Oxytocin – our love and happiness booster
Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Packs is a quick and easy cleanse and detox practice

The release of these feel-good hormones will then promote the release of all of the mental, emotional and physical stress from the day, and prepare you for a proper night’s sleep.

Plus, during your slumber, testosterone production begins to increase from the stimulation of circulation with every hour and, on waking, you’ll have more energy than you did the day before creating the balance in your day-night cycle your body has so desperately been craving.

The best part? Your Day and Night Detox Kit also comes with a Castor Oil Eye Compress (a sleep eye mask) so you can naturally increase melatonin4-5, your sleep hormone and gently reset your sleep-wake cycle! Amazing, right?

Cleanse with Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Packs to balance your testosterone levels

The other best part? You can block out light at night and because it’s light in color, your Eye Compress lets light in naturally so you can wake up with the sun. Sounds nice, agreed?

King of Energy and Hormone Balance

Queen of the Thrones Day and Night Detox kit improves your health gut environment

Because a daily ritual of using your Queen of the Thrones® Day & Night Detox Kit, combined with a healthy diet and lifestyle changes, will help create a healthy gut environment rewarding you with the relief of those disruptive, painful and uncomfortable symptoms.

You’ll sleep like a king and wake to take on your day with the energy of a champion.

And when your body is no longer going 100 miles an hour while stuck in first gear, your energy will increase at a smooth pace – just like the gradual shifting of gears through butter.

 

So, take the tarp off that old beast in the garage, because you will soon be tinkering with your favorite hobbies from your newfound increase in energy and luster.

Let’s celebrate with a pint to kick off your new Queen of the Thrones® Cleanse and Detox practice.

A pint of nourishing beet juice, of course!

Everybody wants to cleanse when it’s spring, would you agree?

While cleansing is a natural body function, did you know it doesn’t happen just once a year? In fact, it’s a daily occurrence – correction, it’s a nightly occurrence.

Here you will learn how to cleanse while you sleep with Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs and the Eye Compress no matter the time of year.

So when your patients, and you, are looking for support in removing the discomforts of leaky gut and hormone imbalance symptoms from the stress they’ve been dealing with, to feel their best in their bodies with the energy of an Olympic athlete… wanting it all now, and by now they mean yesterday…

You’ll be ready to share an easy, doable, Queen of the Thrones® Day & Night Detox Kit.

The above scenario sounds all too familiar? Correct?

This is a perfect example of what you find yourself or your patient saying…

Balance your Health and Recover your Energy and with Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Packs

“I’m so desperately wanting to clean up my life, and not just emptying my closets and decluttering my house… It’s me! I don’t have the energy to do everything I want to do. I’m constipated, always exhausted, can’t sleep and I’m so stressed, and I feel like my brain is all fogged up.”

And then the question comes…

Can I cleanse & detox with a supplement?

Cleansing with Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Packs help to improve your health

Ah yes, the one and done supplemental band-aid prescription. Everybody wants it. Even you and you know better. But that’s ok, because it’s human nature, especially living in today’s day and age.

We want it now, and by now I mean yesterday. Can you relate?

But you look back on your life, and what have the quick fixes done for you? Nothing, because nobody benefits from it in the long run. It may feel good for a period of time but leaves you in the same place you started in. A rut. Agreed?

The key to cleansing and detoxing isn’t seasonal, it’s nightly

What Works? It’s not something you just do in the spring, although it’s a great time to start. What really shifts overtime and improves your leaky gut and hormone Imbalance, is the regular practice of supporting what your body does best.

Sleeping, resting, healing and cleaning!

Yes, that’s right, easy practices that you repeat nightly that become as easy and mindless as brushing your teeth because you know you need to brush off the biofilm for good dental health to prevent cavities, agreed?

Well, your body is no different. There is a way to support your regular, nightly and daytime cleansing.

What about dairy?

You know as much as you, or your patients would love to do a “trendy” cleanse or detox that, for most of us, is just too hard. Too many bells and whistles to commit to, right?

Because a cleanse or detox, well that my friend, involves giving up the things you and they love, like red wine, gluten and dairy, and maybe other foods that they find on their food sensitivity testing.

Plus, they’ve either experienced before or heard about the dreadful and very possible aggravating symptoms.

Learn with Queen of the Thrones What you should avoid during a Cleanse and Detox process

And how are you going to get them, or yourself to do a complicated cleanse or detox if they don’t have the energy to do it?I mean this is why they are sitting in front of you, with ZERO energy, correct?

So, to even initiate a single task or avoid yourself or your patients experiencing another uncomfortable symptom, you are going to have to get creative. Sound too good to be true?

It’s not, read on…

Because you can cleanse and detox while you sleep,

Here’s how…

What’s in a name? Well, everything.

You know your patients are exhausted, you know the first step to healing is like when you are building a house from scratch.

You clean (cleanse or detox) up the land (your body) before building a house so you have a strong sturdy foundation. Makes sense, agreed?

But if there isn’t any energy, how can this happen?

Easily, with the Queen of the Thrones® Day & Night Detox Kit, complete with your Castor Oil Liver Pack, Eye Compress and Dry Brush.

Once you have your pack on, you then dab a couple drops of castor oil around the fine lines and wrinkles on your face, so you can reduce signs of aging, enhance circulation7 and lymphatic drainage. What’s next?

You then slip on your Eye Compress and get comfy in your bed. When your head hits the pillow you’re relaxed as your eye compress gently blocks out distracting lights and makes you feel sleepy because it supports melatonin production8-9.

Plus, your Castor Oil Liver Pack feels like a hug that naturally stimulates the production of your feel-good hormones, oxytocin10-11 and dopamine12-13, so you’re ready to drift off into a relaxing deep slumber. Wonderful, agreed?

Morning comes and you start your shower, setting aside your Dry Brush & Castor Oil for when you step out. Starting from your ankles, working your way to your heart, you gently brush small circular motions.

The best part? It’s truly relaxing but what it’s doing is delivering anti-inflammatory14 nutrients like vitamin E, polyphenols and omegas15-16 and stimulating lymphatic flow. Why does this matter in the morning? Read on!

Now, you might be wondering because your patients might ask you…

Why and how does cleansing, detox and drainage happen while I’m sleeping?

Working with the body and the natural laws, we are already privy, according to traditional Chinese Medicine Doctors, that the hour of the liver is between 1-3 am, where the majority of liver detox occurs, at 3-5am the lungs supports lymphatic drainage, and at 5-7am is when colon cleansing occurs.

So, detox, drainage and cleansing overnight in the liver, lymphatics and colon can happen overnight when you’re sleeping.

This is connected to chronobiology research, the best time to do things for your body supports what the ancient Chinese doctors already knew.

What supports cleansing overnight, wearing a sleep aid compress to naturally promote melatonin. When you wake up in the morning, naturally pump cortisol with a dry brush.

Day and Night Fluctuations ot your Rest and Alert Hormones by Queen of the Thrones

Both the liver and microbiome are most active during sleep, and there is a lot of cleaning going on, so why not:

  • Promote healthy sleep
  • Support the gut and microbiome
  • Reduce inflammation in the liver

All this to simply support and help the body naturally to do what it is supposed to do, stay clean!

So you may think you know what it feels like to experience hormone imbalance because of your irregular period, cravings and mood swings, right? You’re in the right place because those aren’t the only symptoms that indicate hormone problems.

Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Packs is the Best Alternative for Hormonal Problems

You see, it goes way beyond that with gut health issues, bloating and a myriad of other symptoms that don’t seem to be related to your hormone imbalance. But, they are all related and sadly, they have the power to disrupt the way your whole body functions.

The seed cycling protocol for hormone imbalance, which is the rotation of seeds during phases of the menstrual cycle, is a method some practitioners, like yourself utilize as a way to help balance hormones.

You’re probably thinking, where’s the evidence? Is it all clinical practice and anecdotal research? How exactly does it work? And is it the most efficient option for improving hormonal imbalance?

Let’s take a deeper look…

Is the seed cycling protocol the most effective method?

Even though the ingredients used in this protocol have nutritional, phytochemical and hormone-balancing merit, research in all aspects of natural hormonal balance is truly in its infancy.

Much is still needed to be uncovered, and one finds the discrepancy between studies, making it difficult to get the facts regarding the efficacy of the ingredients and the total benefit of this protocol.

As an example, flax seeds, in a 1999 study, were considered, due to their lignan content, to enhance the excretion of healthy estrogen metabolites, suggesting that a dose-dependent relationship of flax seeds, up to 10 grams per day, over a 3-7 week period, potentially reduced breast cancer risk.1

10 years later, in a 2010 study, the results weren’t mimicked. Daily intake of flax seeds in the study, as high as 15g/day, by the end of a 12 week period, demonstrated an increase in urinary excretion of the healthy metabolite.2 The opposite of the initial study, concluding more research is needed to get the answer.

It’s common in Integrative and Functional Medical Practitioners’ health practices to use urinary hormone metabolites, like those used in these studies to understand the changes and hormonal fluxes experienced in hormone metabolites with treatments.

And, as always, research is ongoing.

Practitioners should prescribe the single seed cycling protocol and Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Packs for hormone imbalance

Is seed cycling an effective method to support hormone imbalance?

Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs improve Gut health and Absorption

While ingesting seeds like flax, pumpkin, sesame and sunflower are great sources of fiber, improving gut health, consuming too much can lead to an inflamed gut lining and other unwanted gut health issues. .3

You see, you don’t need to be ‘overfeeding’ yourself the same foods over and over again each day, this often is just a recipe for gut inflammation and leaky gut.

In seed cycling therapy, the healthy fats present in the seeds are thought to play a role in supporting hormonal levels. One study done on lactating cows demonstrated that feed high in Omega-6 impacted and nourished the endometrial lining by stimulating the prostaglandin E2 receptor (PGE2), an anti-inflammatory immune system messenger.4

This is similar to the effect of Castor Oil Packs done on the pelvic region. .

Please be reminded that what happens in a cow with 2 stomachs that is lactating and eating a purely vegetarian diet is likely very different from what occurs in your human body. Makes sense, agreed?

But at the end of the day, eating seeds, like flax, pumkin, sesame and sunflower, may offer many other benefits beyond hormonal balancing effects even just being a source of fiber and can support gut health.

At the very least, improving the frequency of bowel movements that we know optimizes gut health and indirectly has benefits on hormonal balance.

I don’t know about you, but I’m good with trying natural foods (trying to make my food my medicine) even if it’s not understood how and why it works – but like anything keeping things in balance and not overdoing it is key.

Could there be an easier way to support natural hormone balancing? Well, let me ask you this, have you ever considered…

Castor Oil Packs for hormone regulation

Queen of the Thrones®️ Castor Oil Packs can be used by practitioners as a “Single” Seed Cycling protocol alternative to the traditional seed cycling protocol.

The Castor Oil Packs for this practice can be found in your Hormone Balance & Detox Kit.

Castor Oil Packs, when worn daily on different parts of your body (over the liver, over your pelvic region, over your thyroid) on different weeks of your cycle, can be a beneficial alternative to orally consuming seeds. 

Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Pack are the best remedy for Hormone Imbalance

This topical application regulates gut irritation, calming the body and brings your hormones back to a state of balance.

Because we know that hormonal balance must be supported in order to prevent disease, the practice of “Single” Seed Cycling for hormone imbalance makes the use of Queen of the Thrones®️ Castor Oil Packs a true foundational treatment in regular health practice.

How your menstrual cycle is connected to the moon cycles

How your menstrual cycle is connected to the moon cycles

Have you ever wondered or have your patients asked you “does my menstrual cycle coincide with the cycle of the moon?”

How hormonally balanced you are may be determined by how well you are in sync with the moon.

Do you feel out of sync?

You’re in the right place because we’re going to uncover the moon’s impact on your hormones and how you can support natural hormone balancing by “Single” Seed Cycling with the moon cycle and Castor Oil Packs. Are you ready?

We could call the moon the hormonal monthly master and our menstrual cycle is the proof.

What do I mean by that?

Are you menstruating on the new or full moon? Or in between?

Or maybe you’re a woman having been on an outside source of hormones, like the birth control pill, the morning after pill, hormone replacement therapy (HRT), as well as some antidepressants and anti-anxieties, which can have an effect on your hormones.

Let’s discover how your menstrual cycle is connected to nature and the moon cycles, showing how you can use a hormone balancing method called the seed cycling protocol to support your hormone health…

…and the alternative “Single” Seed Cycling with Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs for those with a sensitive gut and distinguished palate would prefer. Exciting, agreed?

So, to begin, the moon exists in a rhythm of cycles known as moon phases, which are connected to your hormonal clock1.

You see, using seed cycling or the alternative “Single” Seed Cycling protocol, for those with sensitive guts and distinguished palates for hormonal balance, you can support your period along with the moon’s timing. Sounds amazing, agreed?

“But how can this be done naturally?”

So how does the moon play a role in hormone imbalance and menstrual cycle regulation?

Let’s take a closer look at the moon’s role in your period’s cycle regulation.

You may have heard, in holistic, spiritual Shaman circles, the moon has been attributed to two-period cycle patterns. Women may or may not fall into an exact representation of this, but many do.

Those that do not fall into this are typically because they’re consuming outside sources of hormone therapy, like the birth control pill, the morning after pill, HRT, and some anti-anxiety and antidepressants, that take over the natural rhythms.

This can, in some cases, severely hormonally unbalance and create an out-of-sync reality with many natural rhythms.

Pattern 1: New Moon Menstrual Period or White Moon Cycling Mothers

In Shaman circles, she represents the ‘fertile female’, who ideally ovulates at the full moon and bleeds on the new moon.

These women are the procreators and mothers of society. One of their largest desires is to bring children into the world so they can nurture and guide them. Everything in their lives is focused on this child-rearing goal.

These New Moon Menstrual Period or White Moon Mothers are often in their prime years of reproduction and their cycles are synced with the moon. Some infertility holistic specialists use this wisdom, and the seed cycling protocol, (which will discuss in more depth), to regulate women’s cycles according to this new moon menstruation cycle if the couple is trying to conceive.

Just because you don’t cycle to the new moon menstruation, doesn’t mean you can’t have kids. This is simply a generalization taken from clinical practice, but everyone is unique and again, there are typically no steadfast rules, just pattern observations.

When couples work at hormone cycling using the Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Pack for Liver Kit, this practice helps both partners cycle together, as men can also cycle with the moon2, using the “Single” Seed Cycling method with Castor Oil Pack for Liver Kit.

These women often self-actualize, career-wise, much later in life, since their first stage of actualization is their role as a mother. This makes them excellent entrepreneurs after child-rearing years when the kids have flown the coop.

They are experts at multitasking, and managing many things at once, a skill they curated during their child-rearing phase of life. Makes sense, agreed?

Pattern 2: Full Moon Menstrual Period – Red Moon Medicine Woman

The Full Moon Menstruation or Red Moon Medicine Woman, in Shaman circles, is the second-period cycle pattern and is the sage medicine woman who ovulates at the new moon and bleeds on the full moon.

These women are usually the teachers, medicine women, artists, healers or doctors, who spread their vast knowledge to their communities.

The Red Moon Medicine Woman has often chosen to not want children, early on. Not the case for all, as many go on to have healthy births. But for the majority…

“I didn’t want babies,” said Oprah Winfrey when interviewed. “I knew I was not going to be a person that ever regretted not having them because I feel like I am a mother to the world’s children.”

This isn’t to say the Red Moon Medicine Woman will never want children of her own or that the White Moon Mother is having an excess amount of children.

You see, both are simply anecdotal and traditional patterns that can be used by integrative and functional medicine practitioners like chiropractors, naturopathic doctors, nutritionists and health coaches to better understand nature’s role in hormone balance. That makes sense, right?

They are interesting concepts, yes, offering deeper insight into hormone balancing, becoming an additional tool in the practitioner’s toolbox. Any help from nature, as long as it doesn’t cause any harm, is a tool we’re always willing to use and learn from. Would you agree?

Seed cycling and the moon

It’s another tool used by integrative and functional medicine practitioners.

Based on mother nature’s genius, seed cycling has been used in correlation with moon cycling, but, in itself, this protocol that includes ingesting different kinds of seeds on different weeks of your cycle, is great in theory but not so much in practice as it can be problematic for the majority of people, especially patients.

And we must recognize that no matter how “healthy” a substance is that you take in, if too high a dose and repetitively, it can become toxic, making food no longer a medicine but a poison.3

So, in order to avoid the repetitive practice of eating the same foods and developing gut inflammation, the Queen of the Thrones®️ Castor Oil Pack “Single” Seed Cycling practice allows you to seed cycle for hormone balance without eating seeds. Interesting, right?

Would you love to know how you can hormonally cycle with the moon using the “Single” Seed Cycling Protocol?
