Kambo  Ceremonies

Shamanic Medicine for Natural Healing

What is Kambo?

Kambo, also known as Sapo, Dow-kiet, Campu, and Vacino de Floresta is the venomous secretion of phyllomedusa bicolor, the Giant Waxy Monkey Tree Frog of the lower Amazon basin. This medicine is common to as many as 53 different Indigenous Amazonian tribes, particularly the Matses and the Yawanawa.

 

What is Kambo used for?

In the Amazon, Kambo is predominantly used for hunting prowess, as it is known to increase visual perception and acuity, sharpen the senses, increase strength and stamina, suppress appetite, and enhance night vision.

 

In Western medicine, it is currently being studied for over 30 of its bioactive peptides which have been shown to be useful in modulating the immune system, cleansing the liver, gallbladder, and lymphatic system of toxins, and delivering an analgesic effect more powerful than morphine. In addition, several of these peptides have been shown to be useful against viral, yeast, and bacterial overgrowths.

 

In our practice and experience, we have found Kambo to be a powerful cleanser of the energetic body and an excellent preparation for the practice of Dieta as well as other plant medicines. In addition, our Kambo experiences have provided us with a “warrior energy,”-- in other words, an increased ability to relax and focus in the face of stress, that lasts for several weeks following treatment.
