What is Kambo?
Kambo is a secretion from the Giant Green Monkey Tree Frog (Phyllomedusa Bicolor). The frog is nocturnal and arboreal and due to the fact that it has no natural predators is found in abundance across the Upper Amazon rainforest areas of Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, French Guiana, Suriname and Venezuela. Kambo is completely legal everywhere in the world.
Kambo is one of the strongest natural anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antimicrobial and anaesthetic substances found in the world and one of the strongest, natural ways to strengthen the immune system. It also detoxes the liver and the intestines so it’s a powerful cleanser. Immediate and short term effects include enhanced mood, alertness, clarity, focus, energy and increased resistance to stress, tiredness, hunger and thirst. The mind becomes still, you feel lighter and everything becomes easier to manage. In the longer term, Kambo empowers the immune system, rousing the body’s defence systems to their natural functions so that existing health problems are improved or resolved and future ones are less likely to occur. In spiritual terms, Kambo works in a mystical fashion as a light that opens the way, helping us to overcome obstacles and release blockages on an emotional level. It clears our energy field and realigns the chakras enabling us to break negative habits and live and think more naturally (extracted from
An Italian scientist, Vittorio Erspamer, of the University of Rome, was the first person to analyse Kambo in a laboratory. In 1986, he wrote that it contains a ‘fantastic chemical cocktail with potential medical applications, unequalled by any other amphibian’. The chemicals that he referred to were Peptides. The peptides studied by Erspamer have become essential to characterize the functional role of opioid receptors. He was twice nominated for a Nobel Prize and was also the person who first discovered Serotonin.
Now, the popularity and use of Kambo as a natural therapy is spreading worldwide. As the scientific and medical research into the secretion of the Phyllomedusa Bicolor grows, skilled practitioners are also developing new ways to work with this powerful substance from the Amazonian Rain Forest which allows it to be accessible to almost everyone in a safe and manageable way. There are new techniques to allow people to take Kambo in a way that is gentler on their system but still allows them to enjoy the maximum benefits. Kambo is very safe when given by a properly trained practitioner however there are some conditions for which Kambo is contraindicated, including people who:
Have serious heart problems
Are on medication for low blood pressure
Have had a stroke, brain haemorrhage, aneurism or blood clots
Lack the mental capacity to make the decision to take Kambo
Have serious mental health problems excluding depression, PTSD and anxiety
Are undergoing chemotherapy, radiotherapy or for 4 weeks afterwards
Take immune-suppressants for organ transplant
Have Addison’s Disease
Have current and severe Epilepsy
Are recovering from a major surgical procedure
Are under 18 years old
Are pregnant, or may be, or are breast-feeding a child under 6 months old
This is not an exhaustive list so it’s important to consult a properly trained and skilled practitioner if you have any serious health issue. Sometimes it depends on the stage of a disease or the constitution of the person receiving Kambo.
