Placenta Encapsulation

 

Some people eat it, some people make pills from it, some bury it and plant a tree over the to, while others throw it in the bin.  What many don’t know is that you can also make a homeopathic remedy out of the placenta and have it as a little constitutional back up for the rest of you and your baby’s life.

Having a homeopathic dose of placenta is like getting to the essence of it.  While substances can be useful nutritionally (i.e. placenta encapsulation), having a homeopathic dose of placenta will go deeper, treating not only the physical realm, but also the emotional, spiritual  and soul levels of a being.

You can use this as a constitutional remedy, giving a dose to your child whenever they become a bit run down and start to get sick.  When they need a bit of help to come back to wholeness and health, to come back to source- that complete place of wholeness and nutrition that is our ultimate blueprint.  Health is not just the absence of disease, it is wholeness-having all parts of us working together in harmony-not just the body, but the spirit and soul.

A dose of their own placenta can help boost the immune system, help them feel stage and protected once again and give them the strength to grow through whatever challenge or transition is occurring.

As a mother, you can take a dose of your placenta for the above reasons.  It can also be used when there is exhaustion from over caring for others.  It can help with the increase of your milk supply, contracting your uterus, and postpartum depression.
