What is Kambo

What is Kambo?
Phyllomedusa Bicolor, known as “Kambo” is a natural vaccine derived from the waxy secretion on the skin of a tree frog that lives in the Amazon jungle and is used traditionally by the indigenous tribes of Peru, Colombia and Brazil, as a medicine for body and spirit. Kambo provides a very powerful physical and energetic cleanse, and is also considered a master reset within all systems of the recipient.
 
 
The Kambo secretion has been found to be one of the strongest natural antibiotics found on earth, and one of the most powerful ways to enhance your immune system.  Kambo is a natural medicine for healing the mind, body, and soul. Cleanses the body of negative physical and emotional energies. Such blockages can manifest through stress, physical ailments, psychological issues, low energy, chronic disease, drug addiction, burn-out, viral, fungal, bacterial, and environmental factors. 
 
 
Kambo is a helper for those with poor health, in deep pain, or disease and assists in revitalization and renewal for those in good health. Kambo secretion cultivates human potential and personal evolution. With Kambo the organs of the body, the endocrine system, and the defense systems are awakened returning to their natural balance. Even cancer cells stop from growing with a Kambo treatment. Changes occur in the physical, energetic, spiritual and emotional fields of the patient, the feeling is of cleanliness, lightness, tranquility, well- being, inner peace and deepening of consciousness.

Kambo Procedure
 Each ceremony begins with a sharing circle, in which the experiences and intentions of the partipant/s is shared freely and openly. As the facilitators, will provide any guidance we feel called to share and use our conversation as basis for leading the ceremony. We cleanse the ceremonial space and the participant with sacred herbs smoke, share Rapé medicine, Sananga and do a meditation & breathwork session. Kambo is applied to the participant by making quick small burn mark openings on the skin referred to as “gates”. 
 

As the medicine is administered onto the gates, it enters the lymphatic system. For new participants, one point of medicine is administered first to introduce the medicine into the system and to gauge the participant’s reaction. After a few minutes, more may be applied to however many gates have been opened. Generally anywhere from 3-8 gates may be applied on the side of arm, inside ankle, spine or where we both intuitively agree upon.
 
 
Applying Kambo on a fresh wound, it is absorbed subcutaneously and enter the lymphatic system. Within a few moments an acute physiological response manifests, usually characterized by an increase in heart rate, sweating, dizziness, nausea and vomiting. The acute effect is attributed to the presence of peptides (amino acid chains) that last several minutes before fading away. After the effects disappear, Kambo medicine leaves the individual with a feeling of greater strength, sensory awareness and mental clarity. The peptides present in the Kambo do not produce any psychoactive effect.
Kambo Ceremony
It is required to consume 2 liters of room temperature water at the procession of the ceremony in the presence of the facilitator. This assists the process in order to flush the whole lymphatic system, liver, kidneys, gall bladder, and other organs.
  
 
Some of the initial onsets of kambo can be increase in heart rate and perspiration. Some may experience swelling of the face which wears off post ceremony. After a few minutes of sitting with the medicine, the body will begin purging the water and expelling blockages and toxins that may be stored energetically and physically down to the organs such as liver and even down to the cellular level. The purging process lasts about 15 minutes, then the medicine is removed to allow integration for the participant. 
 

Recovery and integration is generally quick within 25 min and participant can drive and carry on with regular functionality same day. The whole ceremonial process lasts about 2-3 hours .
