Intro to Kambo

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 surface level 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 (on average) 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.
