PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION with BELLABIRTHING ~ VIP BIRTH
Placenta is good medicine and has fondly come to be known as "THE HAPPY PILL."
A natural and powerful healing tool that Traditional Chinese Medicine suggests is placenta encapsulation. The placenta has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for many generations. Li Shizhen first wrote about placenta as a medicine in the 1500’s when he compiled the first Materia Medica on Traditional Chinese Medicine. Dried placenta has been used widely ever since for many different symptoms. In Chinese it is called, zi he che. The Parmaceutical name is, Placenta Hominis. And in plain English we call it, human placenta. I call it good medicine. The Literal English translation is “purple liver vehicle” and according to TCM the channels it enters are the Liver, Lungs and Kidney.
Placenta tonifys and strengthens the vital force of those who ingest it. In nature, every single animal is programed with an innate knowing to eat its placenta because they know it is good for them and they heal much faster. It restores the warmth the body and womb that has been lost following birth, and therefore assisting in speedy recovery and harmonizing the bodys ballance. This fine balance helps with our immune system. It is believed that our body’s natural immunity, known as wei chi, is reduced post birth and is thought to be restored by ingesting placenta as medicine.
The placenta contains nutrient rich medicine that reharmonizes the overall Qi of the body. Encapsulation is a process in which the placenta is steamed, dehydrated, blended into coarse powder and put into small capsules. As the placenta contains massive amounts of crucial hormones and iron that leave the body once the placenta is born, consuming the placenta in any form can help new mothers maintain their hormone and iron levels in the few weeks after the birth. Heat is infused into the placenta through the use of a combonation of warming chinese herbs, lemon, ginger and chilli. Chilli itself is warming, lemon being a grounding remedy, which alongside ginger aids in circulation and the distribution of healing properties throughout the body. Women have reported feeling a calming effect after ingestion, less baby blues and postpartum depression. Men have reported that their wives are more "happy" after taking thier placenta medicine. Thats why is has been come to be know as "the happy pill" by many who have felt and witnessed its healing and calming effects.
