THERE’S ALWAYS MORE TO LEARN…
Kambo is a secretion from the Giant Green Monkey Tree Frog, known in science as the Phyllomedusa Bicolor. The secretion is not a poison in the sense that it alone is NOT capable of causing illness, injury or death.
In the Amazon, it is regarded as a medicine however this should not be confused with the western definition of a pharmaceutical medicine.
Those of us who give Kambo are practitioners, not doctors.
The Kambo frog has no natural predators & is found in abundance across the Upper Amazon rain-forest areas of Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, French Guiana, Suriname & Venezuela. The only known real threats to this species of frog at the moment are the potential destruction of their habitat. These giant frogs that reach up to 12cm in length and reproduce prolifically throughout the year - mainly from Nov-May. They construct hanging nests from folded leaves 1-3 meters above ponds and streams. The females deposit a mass of eggs into these nests. A single spawn contains on average 1000 eggs from which tadpoles emerge within 11-14 days.
No one is 100% certain what the catalyst for producing the secretion is but it is widely believed to be sequestered from their diet.
The frogs do not produce their secretion when they are removed from their natural environment.
What is Kambo Good for?
Kambo is a powerful detoxification protocol first used by ancient Amazonian
Tribes. It works on many levels, but on the absolute surface level, it is used to
increase the body’s natural ability to heal itself by eliminating toxins through the
lymphatic system and fortifying the immune system. Reported as being helpful
for of a wide variety of ailments and can increase vitality in both body and mind.
Many have found the great benefits from this warrior cleanse, including people
of all ages (we treat people 18 and older). Used by anyone looking for a shift in
life and a deep healing and connecting to your authentic self and your original
vitality of health. From athletes to entrepreneurs to people suffering from
depression, emotional blockages, chronic pain, and addictions. Kambo is not for
everyone, but if you have the strength to take the step forward, it may be for you.
I know it seems ridiculous that anything should have such a huge array of
benefits – but it feels very real & simple once you’ve tried Kambo, because it’s
working with our natural bodies own incredible abilities to heal itself – while giving
it the extra help it needs.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT
DURING & AFTER KAMBO?
What will it feel like?
The immediate effects of kambo are intense and unpleasant but short-lived,
usually lasting no more than 30-40 minutes. IMHO, the most difficult part lasts
between 10-15 minutes. They include a feverish rise in temperature, sweating,
shivers, and dizziness as the heart rate becomes rapid—possibly reaching more
than 190 beats per minute. The blood pressure may rise or fall dramatically,
accompanied by an increased awareness of the veins and arteries. Many people
report a tingling or burning sensation like electricity that starts from the points and
spreads through the body. Some may also feel a dissociative or drunken high.
Overwhelming nausea is generally unavoidable with Kambo and purging is likely. Other effects include a feeling of tingling & pressure in various places… including the head, neck & torso, some stomach discomfort, inflammation of the throat, dry mouth, difficulty moving & numb, swollen lips which will pass.
After these initial effects have worn off and the heart rate has returned to normal, it is nice to rest.
Some fall into a dreamless sleep. Your experience may feel enhanced following the kambo purge.
You may feel great physical strength, sharpened senses, and heightened mental alertness.
Desirable after-effects like these may take a day to materialize or they could be
immediate. They also tend to include a consistently elevated mood, increased
physical and mental energy, decreased stress, and enhanced focus. In the
coming days after a treatment, it’s certainly not uncommon for people to report
having clarity of mind, clearing of emotional baggage, heightened awareness and
focus, resilience to stress and fatigue, reduced illness, an increased sense of
energy and well-being, and even more clarity to their life path.
We have seen a great benefit from those that choose to do multiple sessions in a
row, specifically on their first time using kambo. Many people choose to do 3
days in a row for deep shifts – or within a short period of time. Others choose to
do 3 sessions within a 28-day period (or moon cycle). This allows the body to go
deeper with their own healing – as the kambo works in an accumulative way
when treatments are closer together.
“My body loved it so much! I had some health issues — serious ones — and kambô cleared everything on every level. It bought me back to myself, itempowered me and strengthened me in ways that nothing else had... It opened up my senses and allowed me to live the way I do today."

GEEK OUT ON THE SCIENCE OF KAMBO: PEPTIDES!!
Twice nominated for a Nobel Prize, Italian scientist, Vittorio Erspamer of the University of Rome
and the person who first discovered Serotonin; was the first person to analyze 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 he referred to are peptides.
These peptides studied by Erspamer have become essential to characterize the functional role of opioid receptors.
Several peptides have since been isolated from the secretion and several have been synthesized.
There have been over 70 Kambo patents lodged of these
peptides, mainly in the US – mainly by pharmaceutical companies.
The popularity and use of Kambo as a natural support to healing is spreading worldwide. As the scientific 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.
Not only do we now have a number of different traditional ways to take Kambo but we can also work with the Meridians, the Chakras, Nadis and Marma Points and
even the ears – Auricular Kambo. Added to this, there are also 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.
Phyllomedusin – such as tachykinins (which also act as neuropeptides) – produce contraction at the smooth muscle level and increase secretions of the entire gastrointestinal tract such as the salivary glands, stomach, small and large intestine, pancreas and gallbladder. These are the main parts responsible for the deep purge produced by the administration of Kambo.
Phyllokinin and Phyllomedusins – both are potent vasodilators, increasing the permeability of the blood-brain barrier both for their own access as well as for that of other active peptides. Within this family are the medusins, which also have antimicrobial and antifungal properties.
Caeruleins and Sauvagines – They are peptides with chains of 40 amino acids with myotropic properties on the smooth muscles, producing a contraction of the colon and urinary bladder. They produce a drop in blood pressure accompanied by tachycardia. They stimulate the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland, contributing to greater sensory perception and increased resistance. Both peptides possess a great analgesic power, contributing to the increase of physical strength, the capacity to confront physical pain, stress, disease and diminish the symptoms of fatigue. In the medical field this family of peptides contributes to improved digestion and has analgesic properties against pain in renal colic, pain due to peripheral vascular insufficiency and tumour pain.
Dermorphin and deltorphin – These are small peptides composed of 7 amino acids. They are selective agonists of the opiate delta receptors, 4000 times more potent than morphine and 40 times more than the endogenous endorphins.
Adenoregulins – discovered in the 90s by John Daly’s team at the National Institute of Health in the United States. Adenoregulin works on the human body through the adenosine receptors, a fundamental component throughout all human cellular fuel. These receptors may offer a target for the treatment of depression, stroke and cognitive loss diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease and also Parkinson’s.
Antimicrobial peptides: Dermaseptins, including adenoregulins (with 33 amino acids), plasticins and philloseptins form part of a family of a broad spectrum of antimicrobial peptides involved in the defence of frogs’ bare skin against microbial invasion. These are the first vertebrate peptides that show lethal effects against filamentous fungi responsible for severe opportunistic infections which accompany the immunodeficiency syndrome and the use of immunosuppressive agents. They also show lethal effects against a broad spectrum of bacteria both large+ and large-, fungi, yeasts and protozoa. Several years of research carried out at the University of Paris have shown that peptides Dermaseptin B2 and B3 are effective in killing certain types of cancer cells. Research at Queens University in Belfast recently won a prestigious award for his ground-breaking work with cancer and Kambo. Its action mechanism is produced by inhibiting the angiogenesis of tumour cells, with selective cytotoxicity for these cells.
Bradykinins – such as phyllokinins and tryptophilins. They are peptides with structure and properties similar to human bradykinin. They are important sources of scientific study as they are hypotensive and due to producing vasodilation, contraction of the non-vascular smooth muscle, increase vascular permeability, also related to the mechanism of inflammatory pain.
Bombesins – these peptides stimulate the secretion of hydrochloric acid by acting on the G cells of the stomach, regardless of the pH of the medium. They also increase pancreatic secretion, intestinal myoelectric activity and smooth muscle contractibility.
Ceruleins – Stimulate gastric, bile and pancreatic secretions, and certain smooth muscle. They could be used in the paralytic ileus and as a diagnostic medium in pancreatic dysfunction.
Tryptophilins – are neuropeptides consisting of 4 to 14 amino acids, which are opening up new perspectives on how the human brain works.
These biopeptides have aroused a great deal of scientific interest and many of them have been successfully synthesized in the laboratory and patented.But so far, none of these molecules have been used in clinical practice. Research on the components of Kambo continues to evolve to find clinical applications in the world of medicine and pharmacology, and in the study of new action mechanisms in our human biology.
