The placenta contains your own natural hormones and is perfectly made for you, by you. Experts agree that the placenta retains hormones. Reintroducing them to your system is believed to ease postpartum and menopausal hormonal fluctuations.

TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) Method
The placenta is steamed and then dehydrated until fully dry then powdered.
My two favorite steaming recipes are..
lemon, ginger, pepper (chilis or jalepeno)
ginger, frankincense, myrrh, lemongrass, garlic, tumeric, white peony root
I'm happy to use your spices / herbs for the steaming process as well.
True TCM preparation requires the consultation of a TCM practitioner who can evaluate the mother’s unique needs and prescribe the exact preparation for her. Without a consultation, this preparation method is considered a westernized interpretation of TCM.
The placenta is sliced & dehydrated at 118F until fully dry then powdered.
This preparation is based on the Raw Foods eating methodology. Raw Foodism teaches that food is the most nutritious if it is not heated above 118F. With the lack of heat, bacteria may not be destroyed during preparation but raw foodists believe that this is beneficial as it helps populate the gut with beneficial flora.
One of the most popular alternatives is to prepare the placenta at 160F the entire time.
TCM or Raw ... $250

Placenta tincture is an added bonus in that it can be used in addition to and long after the capsules are gone. By tincturing a small piece of the placenta in a high grade alcohol, you can prolong the benefits of your placental hormones. The tincture can be used in any time of trauma, transition, emotional distress and during menopause and ease your symptoms.
Your own superfine placenta powder is infused into a high quality salve base, with or without your choice of essential oils. The Salve base is made of: Organic shea butter, extra virgin olive oil, organic coconut oil, and organic beeswax.
Keep frozen pieces of your placenta to use in smoothies or cooking at times of stress or when your hormones need balancing. Some people like to plant a piece with a tree. Watch your tree and child grow together over the years.
Broth is for the TCM Method only as the broth is made during the steaming process. Broth can be jarred or frozen into serving sizes to be used in teas, rice, or other creative ways you can think of!
Smoothies are blended with coconut milk and organic, local seasonal fruits & berries. For a Birthday Smoothie (within 72 hours of birth) please add $10.
