Methods of Encapsulation
The Raw Foods philosophy holds that foods preserve their nutritional (and in this case, hormonal) value best when not heated beyond 118 degrees. However, the CDC tells us that possible bacteria such as GBS will not be killed unless the temperature reaches at least 145 degrees. So, when mother's choose the Raw Foods method, I use a "modified raw foods" preparation where the steaming is skipped and the placenta is dehydrated at 160 degrees. - $285
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Raw Foods Method
In Chinese medicine, it is believed that childbirth leaves a mother with an open, empty space which is considered very cold or yin. One way to promote healing during this time is to add warm energy via heat, or yang by gently steaming the placenta with lemon, ginger and hot pepper before dehydrating it. It is then dehydrated at 160 degrees, - $285
One method is not better than the other.
Select the method that makes sense to YOU and fits YOUR lifestyle.
Placenta tincture is a great way to prolong the benefits of your placenta. Because the efficacy remains more potent than frozen capsules, it can be used long after your placenta capsules are gone.
A placenta salve is a wonderful and healing skin moisturizer made with YOUR own placenta that contains millions of YOUR healing stem cells. The ingredients in the salve are of the highest quality and all organic.
Benefits for Mama - The tincture can be used during times of transition, illness or stress which commonly occur during your first menstrual cycle and return to fertility after pregnancy, when your baby starts consuming solids and during weaning from breastfeeding.
How the Tincture is Prepared - Placenta tincture is made by adding a walnut size piece of your placenta to high-grade vodka, then setting to ferment for six weeks in a cool dark environment. During this time, you will need to vacillate (give the jar a swirl) every day. The final product is made by straining off the placenta solids, leaving a potent tincture which, if kept in a cool dark place, such as a cupboard, will last for many, many years.
Full instructions and dosing information are provided when your tincture is delivered to you.
