Benefits of Placenta Encapsulation and Tincture
I have made the decision to offer this service because despite the lack of studies to back the effect so many of my clients have made the choice to ingest their placenta through encapsulation and tincture and have had wonderful results including:
- Decrease in “baby blues” and postpartum depression
- Increased energy
- Increase in breastmilk production
- Decrease in postpartum bleeding
- Helps your uterus to shrink back down to normal size
- Decreases the likelihood of iron deficiency
- Brings physical and emotional balance
- Has been shown to be helpful for women going through menopause
Options for Placenta Encapsulation
There are a few ways that I can process your placenta for you.
Raw Food Method
This method has the highest yield for the number of capsules that can be made from your placenta. When this method is used the placenta is not steamed and is dehydrated at 115 degrees for 12 to 24 hours. This method is known for yielding the most potent capsules and for maintaining the highest iron content and giving the biggest energy boost. This method cannot be used if there is any risk or signs of infection present.
This method yields a moderate amount of capsules and for protecting against bacteria since a higher heat is used during dehydration. When using this method the placenta is not steamed before dehydration and is dehydrated for 8 to 12 hours at 160 degrees.
Traditional Chinese Medicine Method
This method tends to produce the least number of capsules because the placenta is steamed before being dehydrated. The placenta is lightly steamed and dehydrated at 115 degrees for 6 to 9 hours. This method protects against bacteria due to the higher heat during dehydration and the capsules tend to provide a gradual release of hormones that leads to a gradual increase in energy and balance.
I offer placenta encapsulation in my home or yours depending on your preference. When the process is done in your home I bring all of the equipment with me for cleaning, processing and packaging your capsules for you. To encapsulate in your home a $25 fee is added.
Placenta tincture is made by soaking a portion of your placenta in 100 proof alcohol for 6 weeks, after 6 weeks has passed the placenta is strained out and the liquid if returned to you.
Uses and Benefits of Placenta Tincture
Placenta tincture is a very powerful liquid that works great during times of transition, stress and hormonal imbalance. Tincture is also great for helping with the return of cycles and during menopause, since the tincture is made with high grain alcohol it is able to be kept safely for long periods of time.
