The Gift of Placenta Encapsulation

The day Thomas, my youngest, turned 5 I encapsulated his placenta. It was ‘old’ with little to no hormones, yet I had nothing to lose. My colleague had recently encapsulated her 2-year old daughter’s placenta

Cannabis Cacao Butter …. in Capsules

I grazed on these for a lovely Saturday 🙂 My morning apple dipped in almond butter and cup a tea had the addition of two cacao butter cannabis capsules and an hour later welcomed a subtle feel that lasted 2 hours. Another couple capsules brought on a gentle, graceful buzz that had me sitting up straighter and breathing in deeper.

How I Make “Raw Liver Pills”

Wonder what the rave is about with these red pills? They’re a no-fuss, flavorless way to eat liver! Easy as taking a multi-vitamin; hardest part is just getting in the kitchen to make them. See here for how my family eats liver.

It’s very important to source pasture-raised liver for this recipe. Even better, raise the animal yourself or buy from local farmer who freezes the liver immediately after slaughtering.

Do NOT use conventional supermarket liver. You are consuming these raw, and conventional liver can’t be trusted and is a health risk.

Group B Strep Infection & Placenta Encapsulation

 

Can a Group B Strep positive (GBS+) mom use placenta capsules?

In short, it depends on the method used as not all encapsulation providers use the same safety standards.

I am trained to prepare placenta capsules using a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) method on file with FDA; a method that addresses the issue of bacterial pathogens. I have safely prepared placenta capsules for Group B Strep (GBS+) positive moms since 2011.

The TCM method has been used for postpartum healing as far back as 600 AD to establish homeostasis in the new mother. This method is in accordance with USDA standards for raw meat preparation and involves a heating portion.

During the cooking part of process, a placenta is heated to an internal temperature of at least 160°(F). At this temperature, pathogenic bacteria (i.e. E.Coli, GBS, Salmonella) are destroyed. We follow the same guidelines required of any regular food service establishment and our method (PBi method of preparation) is on file with the FDA and has been thoroughly inspected and approved by them.
