Gentle (Traditional Chinese Medicine) Preparation: The placenta is steamed with lemon and ginger, sliced thin and dehydrated. It is then ground into a powder and put into capsules. This method is good for placentas that have had slight meconium staining or moms who are worried about bringing balance to their postpartum cycles.
High Yield (Raw Foods) Preparation: Some mothers decide to forego the steaming process and have their placenta encapsulated raw. Hormones and nutrient load are lessened when food is cooked so in this preparation the placenta is gently cleaned, sliced, and dehydrated slowly on low heat, then ground, and put into capsules. This method is preferred by moms who feel their energy levels need boosting after their baby's birth.
A tincture is used after the pills have been consumed and can last indefinitely. I will put a sliver of your fresh placenta to soak in 100-150 proof alcohol for 24 hours or up to six weeks, then I will strain it for you into convenient sized bottles for storage. Many women use their placenta tincture to help them through their menopause years. Tinctures can be stored indefinitely if properly sealed, and come in a dropper bottle with dosage suggestions.
Placenta Prints: Using edible food coloring gels along with your natural fluids I can capture the "Tree of Life" so you can preserve the likeness of the organ that kept your baby alive.
Smoothie Cubes: All or part of your placenta prepared and frozen in cubes in order to be consumed in fruit smoothies
