Kambo

a mind, body, spirit purification

welcome to the world of kambo

You can schedule private 1:1 or group sessions. You may also join a discounted group ceremony held monthly. Please read through this page for all relevant information.

 

Community Kambo ceremonies are held monthly.

 

Kambo is a frog medicine that supports the health of your mental, physical, and spiritual body. The phyllomedusa bicolor (scientific name) is considered a cure all amongst the indigenous Amazonian tribes that work with this medicine.

Kambo is an ally for healing and clearing man, many things from the mind, body, and spirit. The list includes : lymes disease, seasonal allergies, mold or overgrowth of fungus in the body, infections, confusion or lack of direction, parasites in the body, "evil eye", heartbreak, grief, depression, anxiety, trapped rage or trauma in the body, clearing blood & pain in reproductive organs after miscarriage or abortion.. the list goes on. These claims are supported by ancestral knowledge and scientific understanding.

There is much to learn about kambo. This blurb is but a short introduction. Please continue doing research (some resources listed below). Each medicine carriers values and style of serving is different. In short : As kambo practitioners in the west we receive kambo medicine from Amazonian shamans, rehydrate the secretion with saliva, and apply the rehydrated poison to small burns we make on your skin. The medicine then enters your blood stream. * always ask your practitioner about the ethics of their medicine sourcing and where /how they were trained. We must seek to be in good relationship to the frog and indigenous persons to preserve these traditions. *

Once you are served kambo the active part of ceremony is between 20 - 35 minutes. Your body goes through a purification process. Most often you purge in one, two, or all of these ways : vomiting, bowel movement, crying, shaking, sweating, vocalizing. In your purging process you are releasing penema (indigenous word for stuck spiritual energy), toxins, disease, discomfort, trauma, and more from the body.

Most modern people find the idea of a kambo ceremony scary, odd, or wonder why they would ever do that. That's normal and there is no shame in thinking so. AND Kambo is a wonderful friend to helping us build a relationship to our fear, pain, body, and energy field. Many of us in the west are in deep need of help healing. Kambo is not for everyone. There are many pathways to healing. Kambo is for those that feel the pull to the peculiar ways of the Earth. Kambo is for those on a holistic health path. Kambo is not for the fearless.. kambo is for those who are learning to know & respect their fear... and are ready to purify their bodies, mind, and spirit with the help of an Earth medicine.

How to prepare for Kambo

How to Prepare To Sit With The Frog:

• We want to show up ready for spiritual, emotional, and physical cleansing. This means : thoughtfully take care of yourself (always! but) 3 days before kambo and 3 days after. Practice self-care. Schedule an appointment with your therapist or mentor. Cook meals that are nourishing. Spend less time on your phone or online. Give yourself the gift of care to get the most of your experience!

• Suggested dieta for kambo.. [[ this is not necessary but can be supportive to your experience and getting the most out of your time with the frog ]] : ease up on heavy foods the 3 days before and at least the day after kambo. Less oil, less meat, less sugar, less caffeine, less dairy. If you're a foodie (no worries -- me too).. perhaps lighter meals. Think : I want to show up light and already feeling physically cleaner than usual.


  • Please eat a full, nourishing meal the night before kambo. You want to show up to session feeling strong and ready.

• NO FOOD within 8-12 hours of your Kambo Session. Come to our session with a clear body! This is REALLY important and can be DANGEROUS if not adhered to. Having food in your system can also cause pain when purging. Only water the morning of ceremony. Coming with an empty stomach is essential. Eating 8 hours beforehand is the minimum amount of time I will allow and still serve.

  • No sweat lodges the week before. No water fasting, enemas, or colonics 3 days before or after. No hot tubs or saunas 1 day before or after. This may exhaust you and release too much essential electrolytes, nutrients from the body when combined with a kambo session.

Private sessions : You are welcome to bring some fruit or a light, dieta friendly lunch with you to eat after or on your way home. Your body will be craving nourishment.

Community kambo day : This is a potluck. Please bring a dieta friendly (see above) food or a snack to share. Thank you! <3

• DO NOT take any medication (including herbal or holistic) the day of your kambo treatment. Any supplements and medications can be taken after your session.

• No caffeine the day of your kambo session... I repeat 0 caffeine the day of your kambo session​. NO alcohol the 3 days before and after our kambo session. No marijuana the day before and day after our kambo session.

• If you have allergies or any other health concerns you are expected to communicate this to me BEFORE you come for your session. You should be prepared for an emergency and have your Epipen, Inhaler or Emergency Medications with you if you use any of those.

• If you are sick, please wait until you feel better to schedule your session! Kambo can make the body work hard and if you are already weakened it is not a good time to sit with the medicine.

• It is a good idea for mothers who are breastfeeding to have pre-pumped milk to allow yourself time to rest when you return to your children and to allow any toxins to continue to flush out of your system before feeding again.

  • After care : I recommended to have the rest of your day or majority of the day to relax.

• Get excited and feel hopeful about your healing journey with kambo. He is an ubelievable gift from mother earth! Honor the frog and he will honor you. Please reach out with any questions whats so ever chantelle@solunamedicines.com . See you soon!
