How I Make Raw Liver Pills

Wonder what the rave is about with these red pills? They’re a no-fuss, flavorless way to eat liver! Easy as taking a multi-vitamin; hardest part is just getting in the kitchen to make them. See here for how my family eats liver.

It’s very important to source pasture-raised liver for this recipe. Even better, raise the animal yourself or buy from local farmer who freezes the liver immediately after slaughtering.

Do NOT use conventional supermarket liver. You are consuming these raw, and conventional liver can’t be trusted and is a health risk.

The Gift of Placenta Encapsulation

The day my youngest turned 5, I encapsulated his placenta. Yes, it was ‘old’ with likely next to nil hormones, but I didn’t feel I had anything to lose. A colleague of mine had recently encapsulated her daughter’s two-year old frozen placenta

Parsley Power: Green Smoothie Recipe

Parsley Power: Green Smoothie Recipe

Tara Carpenter, NC.

Traditionally, parsley is used as a remedy for anemia, bad breath, menstrual pain, and more; enjoy all the benefits in one glass 🙂 I will go as far as to say that within a week of drinking this green smoothie each morning, you may be hooked! The blend works and tastes great. 

Parsley is an herb and is rich in A + K vitamins, folate, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, antioxidants, and essential oil. Some health benefits include: cancer inhibitor, liver detoxifier, anti-inflammatory, immune booster, bone builder, and gallstone dissolver (contains oxalic acid/kidney cleanser).

How My Family Eats Liver

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Most of us know that eating liver is a good thing to do. We’ve heard rumors that this animal organ comes with benefits, hits many nails at once, and is especially beneficial for women.

I was raised in a suburb near Boston with limited access or exposure to traditional foods. There were definitely no cows grazing by the side of the road. We kept chickens and a garden though and my mother often fried up liver with bacon ‘n onions, which continues to be the only way I can eat liver to this day. That right there is the extent of my experience with liver, that is until I became a responsible, conscientious adult seeking ways to nourish my body ?

Channel 3 MiVT: Placenta Encapsulation in VT and NH

By Gina Bullard

STOWE, VT. 

At first glance it’s hard to tell if Tara Carpenter is a chef or a medical examiner. She’s actually a certified placenta encapsulation specialist.

Carpenter turns a woman’s placenta into pills — post birth.  “I’ve got a nutritional background which brought me to this work,” she said. The placenta contains iron, hormones, protein, B vitamins, and other nutrients to support new moms.

Carpenter — who started the business, Happy Bellies, believes that new moms can recover from births faster by eating their own placenta made into pills.

“The woman’s body is the most receptive to the hormones that are inside the placenta capsules during the 1st weeks after birth. This is because it takes about 3 weeks after a baby is born for the mom’s hypothalamus to kick back in and produce hormones again” she said.

Carpenter says ingesting placenta pills can replenish vitamins like B6 and B12 and hormones after birth and increase milk production.

Carpenter starts the encapsulation process within 72 hrs. of birth — right in the new mom’s kitchen. “There’s a lot of science behind it all,” she said. The placenta is prepared with a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) method until it’s a dry powder – then it’s placed into the mom’s choice of plain or grape flavored capsules. There is little to no smell during the process.

Reporter Gina Bullard: Why don’t more people do this if there are so many benefits? Tara Carpenter:  “I think many women don’t even know about it.

With the $250 encapsulation fee you receive as many pills as your placenta makes — which Carpenter says averages 85-180. They can also be frozen and used years later — during stressful times or menopause.  She also offers placenta art prints for $25.

“I know the hardship of being a new mom, I see how much help this gives to them, and helping in this way has shaped my life” she said.

Carpenter trained with Placenta Benefits (PBi) and follows OSHA guidelines. She’s trained to handle blood-borne pathogens and medical waste. This may not be for the squeamish, but Carpenter says that’s where she comes in. Once the pills are made, you’d never know the process. “Many moms don’t care to know either, they just feel great taking them” she said.

Carpenter loves being on-call and making placenta pills. She says her clients are diverse and not just new age hippies like some people might think. “I feel like I was made to do this work. I feel grounded when I work with a placenta and miss it if I don’t get one in my hands at least once a week” she said. Not your usual job, but one she believes in. 

Carpenter also travels to New Hampshire to encapsulate.

Here’s to hoping her ‘Made in Vermont’ pills help new moms!

Women have been eating liver for thousands of years for its revitalizing properties (i.e. replacing iron lost in menstruation, balancing hormones, boosting libido). Traditionally, liver, and other organs, were reserved for women during the childbearing years to promote fertility.

The Placenta – A Hormonal Bomb?!

Placenta is recognized by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as having strong Qi (life force energy), scientific research also shows placenta to be incredibly nutritious, containing iron, B12 and protein.

Placenta also contains the new mom’s very own hormones. Hormones that are uniquely bio-available to her. A perfect lock ‘n key fit where her body recognizes these hormones and quickly puts them to use.

In fact, many of my clients feel a positive effect within minutes of drinking Mother’s Broth or taking a couple doses of placenta capsules.

When reintroduced to the body, like we do with placenta capsules, these beneficial nutrients have
