Copius in a remarkable variety of hormones, nutrients, iron, and protein, the placenta's postpartum consumption is becoming progressively popular among new parents. A vast body of anecdotal evidence gives compelling testimony to placentophagy's beneficial effects on milk supply, mood disorders, and energy levels.
Today, many women choose to use their placenta, the organ that nourishes their babies for 9 months, as a postpartum remedy for themselves to help decrease the “baby blues,” postpartum mood disorders, regain their strength after pregnancy, and increase breast milk production.
As a placenta service provider, I can formulate your placenta via the Raw or Traditional Chinese Medicine processes of encapsulation, yielding approximately 100 - 200 capsules taken throughout the postpartum period. Nutrients and hormones are restored, supporting the new mother as her energy returns, encouraging an abundant milk supply, and helping to ward off postpartum depression.
Traditional Chinese Medicine – This traditional Chinese medicine method follows the preparation of lightly steaming the placenta with warming herbs (ginger, lemon, jalapeno pepper) before dehydration.
Raw Placenta Encapsulation – The placenta is dehydrated raw and follows the principles of the raw food diet. It is said to retain more vitamins and helpful enzymes.
Traditionally, placenta capsules are used to help:
balance your hormones
encourage milk production
increase your energy levels
prevent postpartum mood disorders
you recover more quickly from birth
bring the body back into balance
shorten postpartum bleeding
assist the uterus in returning to pre-pregnancy size
increase postpartum iron levels
Women who take placenta capsules report fewer emotional issues and enjoy a faster, more pleasant postpartum recovery.
With a shelf life spanning decades, the placenta tincture is a fantastic way to retain some of the placenta's benefits for lifelong use. Made from a piece of the mother's own raw placenta after birth, steeped in alcohol for 6 weeks, this potent remedy is used for emotional, mental, and psychological instability. It may also be beneficial in treating PMS symptoms and during the transition of menopause.
Used simply by placing a few drops under the tongue or diluted in water. The suggested dosage is 10-40 drops, two to three times a day during times of need. Stored in a cool, dry place, your placenta tincture will last indefinitely!
