I am planning on ingesting my placenta to prevent PPD, because I am bi-polar and high risk. Do not even suggest Rx alternatives, because I have tried them, and find them useless, and detrimental to my health. This question is for women who have done this themselves. I am unsure of how to best prepare the placenta. Cooked? Raw? Encapsulated? I am leaning toward encapsulation, because the gradual doses seem to make more sense for long term relief of PDD, however I've also read that it is at it's most nutritionally potent raw, and that' is how most mammals eat their placenta. What are your experience with this, and what method would you recommend?
I thought this a very strange question, so I looked it up as a way to educate myself. Here is one of the articles I found. The below article comes from the site I posted a link for, I hope others will read it before passing judgement on you and your decision.
