After birth, it is said that the mother is left in a cold physical state. In the practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), warming herbs are given to the birthing person to bring the body back into balance. Using the Placenta as an herb may assist with bringing homeostasis to the mother’s body post birth.
During the steaming process, the water used to steam is enhanced with the use of warming herbs. Lemon and ginger are most commonly used because they are both warming and aid in distributing the healing properties of the placenta throughout the body.
Next, the placenta is dehydrated and then encapsulated and bottled. The placenta capsules may provide a steady release of energy, lactation support, and assist the mother with balancing and stabilizing her hormones during the post-partum period. The TCM method of encapsulation usually produces a few weeks supply of capsules (the amount varies per placenta).
