Placenta Encapsulation for Postpartum Wellness
Placentophagy is the practice of a mother consuming her placenta and the reported benefits are:
Balanced Method Encapsulation--
The placenta is dehydrated and made into capsules for easy consumption. Many Mamas choose this method as a way to keep the nutrients in their original state and in alignment with the Raw Foods Diet.
Encapsulation with an inspiration from traditional chinese medicine which includes steaming with herbs of your choosing. If you prefer, an herbalist can be consulted for an additional charge. My standard traditional method uses ginger, lemon, and pepper in keeping with the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This is a preparation method I may recommend if you are taking medications during your pregnancy or birth.
"Half & Half" Encapsulation--
If you would like, your placenta capsules can be prepared half Balanced and half Traditional. "Half & Half" allows you to enjoy the immediate energy boost and hormone stabilization associated with the Balanced Method and the tonifying and warming effects that Traditional is so well known for which helps the long-term postpartum experience.
