Dr. Berg talks about the menstrual cycle and cravings. He also talks about generally what’s happening during certain parts of the cycle and if the cravings at the certain point what you would need.
Day 14 is where estrogen is spiked. In this time, you would want to support with more cruciferous vegetables or iodine (sea kelp). Most women crave just before their period called PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome) and other emotional issue like moodiness, etc. In this phase they need more B-vitamins (nutritional yeast), vitamin D and vitamin C. B1 is the most important. But make sure you get a food based vitamin C. During the cycle itself if the cramps are very strong – get calcium orotate. Just after your cycle, you need more iron, which red meat will provide. Kale and spinach will help. If you have gone through menopause, then you need more vitamin E because the pituitary gland uses this vitamin for the production of sex hormones. raw sunflower seeds, almonds, leafy greens all provide a good amount of vitamin E. If you are low in estrogen, use boron (trace mineral) to increase estrogen.
