The traditional placenta preparation process is inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is a TCM belief that a body is cold after giving birth, and needs warmed. In order to "warm" the birth parent's system, the placenta should be steamed before dehydration.
We gently wash, then steam the placenta over lemons, ginger, and peppers. The steamed placenta is then dehydrated, ground, and put into capsules.
This method is the most popular selection. We will choose this process if no preference is indicated.
In addition to the traditional preparation, we offer a raw-start, un-steamed preparation for clients who are interested.
Some people believe raw foods have more potency and life force available than cooked foods. Please note, the raw method is not believed to be warming to a woman's system and may feel more activating.
We skip the steaming, and then we follow safe food standards of dehydration. The dehydrated placenta is ground into powder and placed into vegetarian capsules.
There is no extra cost for raw placenta encapsulation.
For either preparation you can choose your capsules.
