Single nostril breathing to help the Follicular phase


Women are sensitive to their environment during the follicular phase. Ideally we should "nest and rest" in the days from cessation of the period to ovulation like a mother hen. The hypothalamus governs important hormone activity in this first phase of the cycle and it can easily get upset by stress. Modern life is busy and relationships can causes us to worry and react. This is too far removed from the tranquil energy of a mother hen.

So how can we help ourselves to embrace our mother hen aspect of our femininity? What's required is to stimulate the parasympathetic part of our nervous system. We're often using the other part - the sympathetic nervous system, the fight-flight response, too much. A great way to balance the nervous system is alternate nostril breathing. It is a very simple breathing exercise. I wrote a blog on it. I have it in a blog but understandably this forum will only let me put a web ref in after I have participated in 10 posts. I will be happy to email the link to anyone who is interested. You could also look up the exercise on YouTube.

Holistic medicines/therapies should be prescribed according to individual situation. It's all about the CAUSE rather than the SYMPTOMS (e.g.. long cycles). Saying that, acupuncture is a very good method for stimulating ovulation. Chinese herbs good first line treatment for taking the cause of the ovulation issue. Fertility Charting can reveal more closely your issues. Do you chart?

If you have a few weeks of temps I can look at them and give u some feedback if you like. I'll need to convert to C. Do you live in the USA?

Hi, I know this post started a while ago but it came up in google search so I just had to reply! I've been ttc for 3 months now and my cycles have always been 28 days spot on, since ttc I have had one at 25 days, one at 23 days and now one at 21 days. Did you ever find out what was causing your cycles to shorten?

Shortening cycle


I came off the pill 8 months ago as I'm ttc, the first 3 months my period went from a 28DC up to 34 dayDC which was regular up until today which is cycle day 31. Any clues on why my cycle is now shortening
