Your placenta is perfectly made for you, and by you! It is a wonderful organ created to nourish the baby in the womb and then the mother postpartum.
I'm going to have the placenta made into vitamins but the specialist that we have hired has many options: vitamins, cookies, smoothies, truffles and she can even make you a dream catcher out of your umbilical cord if that would be something you would fancy [it is not for me but if you get one I would cheer you on]
The known ingredients that give the placenta its healing properties are:
Gonadotrophin: the precursor to estrogen, progesterone and testosterone,
Prolactin: promotes lactation,
Oxytocin: for pain and bonding; produced during breastfeeding to facilitate bonding of mother and infant. In pharmaceutical form this is a very addictive drug because it promotes a feeling of connectedness with others,
Thyroid stimulating hormone: boosts energy and helps recovery from stressful events,
Cortisone: combats stress and unlocks energy stores,
Interferon: stimulates the immune system to protect against infections,
Hemoglobin: replenishes iron deficiency and anemia, a common postpartum condition,
Urokinase inhibiting factor and factor XIII: stops bleeding and enhances wound healing,
Gammaglobulin: immune booster that helps protect against postpartum infections.
