Raw Placenta Encapsulation
RAW Placenta Encapsulation skips the heating process altogether. This method of preparation involves cleaning the placenta and then dehydrating the placenta before it is ground and put into capsules. I recommend this type of encapsulation as it involves less processing and you get a higher yield of capsules.
TCM Placenta Encapsulation
TCM Placenta Encapsulation is inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine. This method of preparation involves cleaning the placenta, gently steaming it and dehydrating before it is ground, adding dried ginger and Szechuan pepper and put into capsules. This method has come from old references of placenta preparation in Traditional Chinese Medicine with a focus of increasing it’s warming properties.
Using part of your placenta to make a Placenta Tincture enables you to reap the benefits of your placenta many years into the future. Some of the benefits for the mother include hormone stabilization and energy in her postpartum cycles, less bleeding during those cycles, and constitutional support in the menopause years down the road. The placenta is a rich source of stem cells and contains both the mother and child’s strengths and weaknesses. Treating the individual with this highly personalised remedy will provide balance when there is an imbalance. It will be an excellent immune and constitutional remedy throughout the child’s entire life.
Cost and timeframes
Your placenta will be picked up within 12 hours of birth if fresh, or within 24 hours if refrigerated. Most placentas yield between 120 –150 capsules, a 2-3 month supply. The capsules will be delivered within 3 days of receipt of the placenta. The tincture will be posted back within 6-7 weeks.
