What You Should Know
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the placenta is considered a powerful and sacred medicine – a “life force” organ. It is believed that should it be consumed to support a healing mother after birth. The placenta is composed of beneficial hormones, chemicals, iron, and proteins, and is revered for its symbolism of life, spirit and individuality.
Placenta encapsulation is the process of transitioning the placenta into capsule form. Benefits of this method of preserving include: balancing your system, replenishing depleted iron, increased energy, lessens postpartum bleeding, increased milk production, and regulates hormones. Placenta encapsulation is done using the TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) Method and can produce a varied 100-200 capsules. The turnaround time is 2-4 days. Pick up and drop off is available.

The essence of your placenta holds a tremendous power to heal you and your child. An essence heals on an energetic or vibrational level, stimulating our vital force. It can be use during times of transition, illness, stress, emotional upheaval or hormonal imbalance. It is important that this process is completed when the placenta is strong and very new. Taken in water a few drops at a time, this essence is a perfect immune-boosting remedy for both you and the baby. It is useful during illness, when encountering stress or hormonal/emotional issues and will last indefinitely.
Suggested dosage is 1-3 drops in water. When stored in a cool dry place, placenta essence should last indefinitely. Click here to inquire.
CABU can custom make a natural healing salve for personal use, with portions of your placenta. Although not often discussed, it is widely known that the placenta has many therapeutic qualities for the skin. Placenta is often the secret ingredient in opulent beauty creams and topical lotions that claim anti-aging and restorative benefits. Several expensive, anti-aging lotions and creams contain “sheep placenta extract” as their secret ingredient. Check the ingredients of your favorite shampoo or facial cleaner. Do you see any “Hyaluronic Acid” or “Hyaluronate” and know that is placenta.
