Heal The Root
Kambo is a powerful, jungle medicine for body mind and spirit
Kambo is the secretion of the amazonian frog Phyllomedusa Bicolor. For centuries, South American tribes have been benefiting from the near magical properties of this "medicine"
Traditionally Kambo has been used to
Release "Panaema" a term loosely defined as persistent bad luck or negativity that follows one through life
Heal the body of disease
Give them "Hunting Magic" I.e. more energy with less sleep, sharper senses and a clear mind.
In a more modern context Kambo is being used to treat anxiety, depression, HIV, cancer, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, arthritis, diabetes, candida, herpes, high blood pressure, PTSD, fertility issues, candida, and addictions to name just a few...
It is potentially the quickest and most efficient detox on the planet, and it is said to go directly to the roots of physical disease and mental suffering instead of putting bandaids on the symptoms.
"Nothing but good news, There is a frog in South America, Whose venom is a cure, For all the suffering, That mankind must endure
More powerful than morphine, And soothing as the rain, A frog in South America, Has the antidote for pain
That’s the way it’s always been, And that’s the way I like it"
- Paul Simon 'Senorita with a Necklace of Tears'
Kambo works in very mysterious ways. It is quite common for people to release old emotions, or past traumas in addition to physical toxins during a session. The same dose, in the same person may significantly target different areas in different sessions. It seems to respond to our prayers, intentions and the moment we find ourselves in. We will most likely never truly understand what Kambo is capable of or it's mechanism of action. Still, there has been a lot of research on Kambo since its fairly recent discovery.
Kambo holds the Keys to our cells
And those keys are called Peptides...
Imagine your cells are like houses. Most drugs sloppily pick the locks, or worse just batter the doors down, but not Kambo. The Bio, and Neuropeptides are identical to receptor sites in the cells. This perfect lock and key system allows them to work quickly and easily in the body.
Upon researching the constituents in Kambo, scientists have discovered a number of peptides with powerful effects. The dermaseptin has been shown to have potent anti microbial, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. One peptide, tryptophyllin specifically targets Candida Albicans. Phyllolitorin works directly on the central and peripheral nervous system. Adenoregulin is notable for it's efficiency in killing cancer cells. Dermorphin has been found to be 30-40x more potent than morphine. Meanwhile Sauvagine stimulates the adrenals and dopamine release.
Scientists have been working on synthesizing these agents for their potent applications, but so far nothing works as well as natures design!
"Kambô in its natural form is not for everyone. It’s what I call ‘active healing.’ It’s worlds apart from the passive process of swallowing a pill and sitting on the sofa watching TV while it does the work for you. With kambô, you are required to turn up and be present through the often times intense treatment. Most people have to face a great many of their fears both before and during their first kambô treatment."
- Karen Darke (founder of the International Association for Kambo Practitioners)
Kambo, much like the jungle itself is very intense. For many, the most challenging aspect is the amount of water one must consume before treatment. We follow the guideline of 2 liters within 15 minutes of application to be sure the medicine has an avenue of release.
Gates are then burned into the body using a small incense stick. This is usually not painful, but may possibly scar.
The Kambo secretion is mixed with water and divided into points. When these points are placed on the gates, the effects of the medicine come on quickly. Generally, people find their heart rate increases followed by a rise in blood pressure. After a few minutes one may become nauseous and begin to purge. It is said that these are the toxins coming out. Many people are quite surprised at what comes out.
In general, the effects of the medicine last from 20-40 minutes. Sometimes people pop up afterwards with lots of energy, sometimes the shifts can take a day or two to settle. It is also possible to have the effects of a Herxheimer reaction from liquifying the bodies toxin load. These symptoms are generally short lived, and followed by an increase in general wellbeing.
While there are cases of people having serious side effects during or after Kambo treatments, this is quite rare, and these risks can be greatly mitigated through the use of a proper screening, and application of a test point.
Safety is the highest priority!
I Am Not A Shaman
Kambô is not considered a Shamanic Medicine
My job is to keep you safe and hold space for your healing
For a successful Kambô ceremony
Show up, ready to do the work with an empty stomach, a gallon of water and a cushion to sit on
Apply the medicine safely and hold space for your healing.
