Ksenia Sobchak in 2016 gave birth to a son Plato. The TV presenter admitted that immediately after giving birth she decided to freeze her placenta. The journalist is sure that in the future she will be able to use it for treatment or rejuvenation.
According to Xenia, she wanted to “perform some kind of ritual” after giving birth. Now her placenta is stored at the clinic in a special cryochamber.
“Because someone told me that these are stem cells,” the TV presenter explained about her act in an interview with blogger Ekaterina Konasova.
Sobchak believes stem cells, in which case, will help her cure oncology, including leukemia, anemia, and autoimmune diseases. Also, according to Ksenia, they can be used for rejuvenation.
Sobchak clarified that he did not eat and did not even taste his placenta. Ksenia brought this up for a reason – eating your own placenta is a very popular action among Western stars. For example, Kim Kardashian, after the birth of her son North, decided to take a preventative course for postpartum depression using pills from her own placenta.
“When I gave birth to my daughter North, I had symptoms of depression, but I managed to cope on my own: my relatives supported me and there was no other older baby who also needed care. But now I have two children and I can’t afford to suffer from postpartum depression. Doctors recommended pills from my own placenta and I thought, “Why not?” Kim said on her social media page. The model then posted a photo of a pill bottle. On the jar, the doctors at the perinatal center wrote: “Kim, this is your amazing placenta.”
By the way, official medicine considers it quackery to eat one’s own placenta. Serious studies on the benefits of eating it have not been conducted, and the actual effect has not been proven. However, the placenta is very popular with stars. At one time, actresses January Jones, Gaby Hoffmann, Alicia Silverstone and Tom Cruise, who ate the placenta of their wife Katie Holmes after the birth of their daughter Suri, ate their own placenta after childbirth in the form of pills, shakes. or even “raw”. Hollywood stars try in this way to prolong their youth. They believe that the concentration of nutrients in the placenta is so high that it can have a rejuvenating effect.
