Placenta Encapsulation: Natures Best Medicine
OK... you've spent 9+ months growing this gorgeous baby (or two), but did you know you've also spent that time growing some of mother nature's most perfect medicine to help you recover after giving birth? Though it is routinely disarded as medical waste in our society, enapsulating your placenta and ingesting it in medicinal doses can completely change your post-partum experience. Every mamal on this planet (other than humans) instinctually ingest their placenta as soon as they give birth, yet this completely natural part of the birth has almost been lost in our culture.
Encapsulated placenta pills are highly effective in helping to treat:
post partum depression and baby blues
low iron levels
uterine contactions/returning to it's original size
post natal bleeding
So why is this medicine so effective?
Your placenta holds on to valuable nurtients and hormones that your body produced during your pregnancy. Ingesting it is the most natural and effective way for your body to replenish its resources. Some of these nutrients include:
gammaglobulin: protects the body against infection and boosts immune system
Vitamin B6: fights depression/balances hormones
Prolactin: Promotes lactation
Gonadotropin: restores estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone to normal levels
Oxytocin: promotes healthy bonding and supports breast feeding
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone: increase energy/decrease stress
Cortisone: increase energy/decrease stress
Interferon: stimulates the immune system
Prostoglandins: antiinflammatory/helps uterus return to it's normal size
Hemoglobin: increase iron levels
Urokinase IF: stops post partum bleeding/supports wound healing
