Placenta Remedies

The placenta is a magical organ worthy of respectful treatment. Many cultures around the globe have some kind of ritual to pay homage to this sacred organ. In our culture it is considered as “hazardous waste” and treated like garbage. Not only is it a wonder that your body knows how to make an organ out if it’s own parts but, this organ has the intelligence to grow and nurture your child with DNA from your ancestors!

It’s a transfer station to move oxygenated blood to your baby and it knows how to keep the mother’s blood separate from baby’s so baby can be a different blood type! It carries nutrients, hormones and antibodies to support the baby’s growth and also helps to move out what the baby doesn’t need. It creates progesterone hormones to keep the mama balanced through the incredible transformation her body is going through during pregnancy. Your baby has an intimate relationship with the placenta while in your belly and it can continue to serve baby and mama even after the baby is born!

It is thought that because the placenta harnesses hormones to keep mama sane through pregnancy, the sudden withdrawal of those hormones after the birthing is what causes the baby blues and ingesting it may restore your body to an equilibrium. Due to this, mammals eat their placenta after birth to replenish it’s energy and also to disguise it’s scent from potential predators.

Here’s what’s in the placenta and why you may benefit from ingesting it: The placenta contains high levels of prostaglandin which helps to shrink the uterus back to size as it cleans it out and also acts as an anti-inflammatory. The placenta also contains oxytocin (the love hormone)which promotes pain relief from birth and can aid in bonding with your baby. The hormone Interferon  boosts the immune system which can help mama fight infections after birth and Cortisone  releases energy to combat stress.  Urokinase inhibiting factor and factor XIII which helps to lessen hemorrhaging and promote expedited healing.  Additionally, the placenta contains the hormone Prolactin which is  responsible for your healthy mammary  function to produce milk for your baby. The placenta is also rich in vitamins, minerals, high in iron and protein to help with recovering from the extreme energy output of birthing.
