TCM Placenta Encapsulation:
Placenta Capsules are made from your placenta
The placenta is steamed with lemon, ginger and green chilli according to TCM recipes
The placenta is dehydrated using a food dehydrator or oven for 8-10 hours until crisp
The dried placenta is ground into a powder and put into empty vegetable capsules
Contraindications with TCM capsules: TCM placenta capsules are known as a 'heat' or 'yang'
energy in Chinese Medicine and therefore should be stopped when the body is experiencing
fever from infection, as a result of mastitis/flues or illness. It is said that the heat from the placenta
capsules will feed the infection, rather than feeding the body itself. We highly advise mothers to
suspend their capsules while they are ill or feeling feverish until they are fully recovered and well.
We take great pride in the safety of our encapsulation process. We have a dedicated kitchen in our office for encapsulations.
We also adhere to strict barrier and bloodborne pathogen precautions. Each placenta is labeled with your name on the container
and bag to prevent mix ups. Only one placenta is processed at a time, and hospital grade disinfectant is used where bleach
and/or sterilization is not appropriate. If you have any questions about our process, do not hesitate to give us a call.
