It is always a Team effort here, and that makes for a very favorable prognosis, regardless of the ‘condition’. Patients experience an unconditionally supportive, caring and educational environment, They can take as much from it as they can handle, or as little as they can manage at this moment in their crazy lives. The more they can absorb, the more empowered they become. Our goal is to support you, whatever that looks like, in your journey toward better health.

Tara Carpenter
Placenta Encapsulation Specialist
Pregnancy and childbirth are taxing to a woman’s system and can easily drain her own supply of energy and nutrients, especially iron and protein.  What if you, as a new mother, could replenish your body by taking your baby’s placenta, contained in capsule form?
Placenta Pills Can Help:
– Balance hormonal fluctuations;
– Replenish depleted iron;
– Prevent “baby blues” and postpartum depression;
– Increase breast milk production, and more!!
