(Health Secrets) A fantastic way to help regulate hormonal imbalances after giving birth is through placenta encapsulation. Most placental mammals consume their placenta after giving birth, including herbivores. It is a big part of the secrets of how they regain their strength and equilibrium so quickly. Consuming one’s placenta in humans has been around for a couple of decades, though it seems that recently placenta encapsulation is the focus of the current generation of new mothers.
For those who are unsettled with eating their own placenta, placenta encapsulation is a fantastic way to reap the benefits of one’s placenta. After the birth of a child, consuming the placenta helps to:
- Increase mother’s energy
- Balance her hormones
- Improve mother’s milk supply
- Replace depleted iron
- Accelerate the uterus to return to pre-pregnancy state
The placenta is ideally encapsulated within 48 hours after the birth of the baby. A mother can start taking the capsules immediately.
For those women who want a natural remedy to potentially help cure their baby blues, a wise choice is encapsulating their placenta. It is important to find someone who is trained and certified in placenta encapsulation.
The birth of a child presents all sorts of different emotions, challenges and changes for the mother. Mood swings are common after the birth of a child. While baby blues are the least severe form of post partum depression, it is vital that the mother does not ignore the changes that she is experiencing. Some mothers struggle with the sadness that they feel after their joyous event–how could they feel sad when they have just given birth to an amazing human being?
It is estimated that 70-80% of women experience symptoms of baby blues after giving birth. Some signs of baby blues include impatience, irritability, restlessness, weepiness, anxiety, difficulties sleeping and mood changes.
Though the exact cause of baby blues is unknown, it is obvious that a huge hormonal shift happens after giving birth. These hormonal shifts can also cause chemical imbalances in the body. What is a new mom supposed to do to help get rid of these awful “blues”? Consuming the placenta is probably the best choice. Other helpful tips include:
- Eat a well balanced diet that consists of healthy fats (such as coconut oil, olive oil, butter), plenty of vegetables, high quality protein and filtered water.
- Talk with a trusted friend, family member or counselor.
- Get some fresh air and leave the dirty diapers behind. Take time to clear your mind and focus on yourself for at least 15-3o minutes each day.
- Ask for help. When somebody offers to bring a meal over or clean the house, be quick to say “YES!”. Though it may be challenging to accept the help of others, people really do want to help out a new mother and this is an easy way for most people to feel useful.
- Don’t be too hard on yourself. There is no perfect parent. We have all made mistakes, fallen short and yet we manage to pick up the pieces and move on.
