Group B Strep Infection & Placenta Encapsulation

Can a Group B Strep positive (GBS+) mom use placenta capsules? In short, it depends on the type of preparation method used.

​NOT ALL ENCAPSULATION PROVIDERS USE THE SAME SAFETY STANDARDS

I am trained to prepare placenta into capsule form using a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) method that is on file with the 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. read more

Why I Decided to Try Transcendental Meditation (TM)

I began Transcendental Meditation (TM) in January of 2018. I first heard about this meditation technique when a friend mentioned it might help prevent the panic attacks I was prone to. At that time I was willing to try anything … except take more medication.

Thanksgiving Gravy ~ Starch-Free & B.E.D. Friendly

Slather this savory, starch-free gravy over meat, mashed red potatoes, or starch-free stuffing for a traditional comfort food and a happy belly. Unlike most gravy, this one does not contain a thickening starch like cornstarch or flour and so it combines well with animal protein.

When I say ‘combines well’ I am referring to food combining; a secret for improving digestive issues. I learned about this when I started on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) and am glad I did! I no longer feel stuffed to the seams after I feast, or hardly ever for that matter. Moved on to stage 2? Check out this delicious onion gravy

Infection Pregnancy

GBS+ During Pregnancy

 

The mom in this photo tested positive with group B strep* infection (GBS+) in her final trimester and received I.V. antibiotics during labor. Group b strep are a pathogenic bacterium that sporadically live in the rectum, intestines, urinary tract, and genital area of all pregnant and non-pregnant healthy people.

These bacteria don’t typically cause problems when kept in check by good flora (a.k.a. probiotics) that naturally live in your body, but when allowed to overpopulate they can cause a mild to serious infection. Especially during pregnancy when more than 25% of women are diagnosed with this infection. This is a concern as a GBS infection can be harmful to both mom and her baby.

‘Travel Food List’ for The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D)

When you’re on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) or another gut healing protocol, travel can be challenging. It’s hard to be away from your kitchen comfort zone. The world can feel too big; food choices too slim.

Food is everywhere but your mouth because you can’t eat any of what is available. Coffee brewing, fries frying, and pizza baking can be unbearable; it’s hard to say no on the go.
